French fries spurs murder
Macon Telegraph | Submitted by: Dirty Sammy
"A Macon man was killed Saturday evening after an argument over money borrowed to buy french fries, police officials said... Hofmann said Hodges had borrowed $2 from Sandifer's 12-year-old daughter to buy french fries at a fast-food restaurant Saturday. When they returned to Hodges' house, Sandifer asked his nephew to give his daughter back the money he had borrowed, Hofmann said." Time to rename them from Freedom Fries to Felony Fries?

Forged dox stories leave much to be desired
Slate | Submitted by: Crazy Quagga
Opinionated, but the article points out how the New York Times and the Washington Post have covered the scandal over the fake documents Powell presented to the UN: "Both the Post and Times stories sympathize with the CIA. Both portray the agency as bullied by the Bush administration but still having the balls to convey its doubts about the docs as they moved up the chain of command." Shit, since when did the CIA become such a PUSSY?

Dinners in the dark and mass groping
Wire Services | Submitted by: Orpyak
"It was great. You got to grope strangers, like that blond woman right there," a 36 year old business manager named Jeff said gleefully. He also admitted to tossing pieces of bread at other diners under the protection of darkness. Then, as soon as the diners were seated with the lights out, unable to see anyone or anything, the supposedly sophisticated New Yorkers somehow became anything but."

Jellyfish stings boy to death
WKMG-TV 6 Orlando | Submitted by: Rio
"A 7 year old boy was stung to death by a jellyfish while swimming off the coast of northeast Australia, according to authorities. The boy was apparently stung Sunday by a chironex fleckeri, one of the deadliest of the large box jellyfish that infest coastal waters around northern Australia, said Peter Fenner, the national medical officer of the country's lifeguard association, Surf Life Saving Australia. If the sting is confirmed to have come from a chironex fleckeri, the boy will be the 68th person in Australia killed by the jellyfish since records began in 1883, Fenner said."

Coloradans fear "war" after pipeline explosion
Denver Post | Submitted by: BTuna
Proof that emotion overrides logic. People in Colorado actually think some sort of attack would occur in their state (probably after watching the 24 hour coverage of the war). Local authorities would like to talk to the driver of a silver SUV seen driving away from the site just before the explosion.

Give me that online prayer!
Houston Chronicle | Submitted by: Janey G
And you thought televangelists were bad: "...the ancient "prayer circle," which traditionally requires a physical gathering of individuals in one place at the same time, has acquired a virtual counterpart: the Web prayer circle, whose boundaries are more like those of a wind-buffeted cloud, always in flux."
