Serial killer now serial knitter
Denver Post | Submitted by: BRoux
"Cross-country killer Keith Courville - his biceps covered with tattoos, including a depiction of the grim reaper - sits in his cell surrounded by dozens of multicolored skeins of yarn, crocheting a beanie cap. 'I'm addicted to yarn. I just ordered $60 in yarn for myself,' Courville said." [If that doesn't get him a good buttraping, I don't know what will.]

Exorcism ends in murder
New Zealand Herald | Submitted by: ms.dna
An Auckland minister is currently on trial for the death of one of his followers thanks to his special technique for driving demons from the body.

But we will observe that it would be relatively easy to establish a satellite link connecting the database to the North Pole...

Copyright law has grown evil
Wired | Submitted by: Soylent
For most of the 20th century, copyright was held for 28 years, and then renewed for another 28 years if the author was still interested in the work. But now, content cartels such as Disney and Turner have vast holdings of copyrights, and spend large amounts of money influencing a law that was intended to help the artist. And so that law only serves to line the pockets of those few megacorporations. And if they commercial revenue from a particular work declines (and this happens more often than not), they stop publishing it. We're losing control of our own culture.

U.S. changes warfare of the 21st century
International Herald Tribune | Submitted by: Crazy Quagga
"We are witnessing something else besides - the end of maneuver warfare. From the vast tank battles of World War II to the "left hook" delivered to Iraq in Desert Storm, maneuver warfare defined the 20th century way of war. Today the United States is on the verge of a dramatic leap in military capability that will make waging conventional war against it an act of suicide."
