Celebratory gunfire at a wedding party in eastern Saudi Arabia on Tuesday night brought down an electric cable, killing 23 people, a local civil defense official said.

"At the wedding, the cable fell on a metal door and the 23 people who died were all electrocuted," Eastern Province official Abdullah Khashman said by phone.

A photograph of the aftermath of the accident, published on local newspapers' websites showed a large courtyard strewn with fallen chairs and a pole in the middle supporting cables carrying lightbulbs.

All those killed were from the same tribe, Khashman said. Thirty others were injured in the incident near Abqaiq, a center of the Saudi energy industry.

Man sues wife, wins $120k after their 'ugly' baby is born

A woman in China was sued by her husband after she gave birth to a baby the husband considered so ugly he insisted she must have had an affair. After all, his wife was gorgeous and he clearly believes he is a dreamboat, so how could they have an ugly baby? When it came to light the woman had had a lot of plastic surgery before they met and the new daughter merely inherited her old face, the man not only divorced his wife, but sued her for the equivalent of $120,000 -- and won.

How ugly does a baby have to be as a newborn for you to consider it ugly??? I mean, the guy knows her looks WILL change drastically from that point to even say, a year later lol

To be honest, I think all babies are rather unattractive.

On a not-at-all related note, I haven't stepped foot in a wal-mart for a few years and counting, and don't plan on changing that anytime soon.

They have great prices, if I'm being honest. Even on food items. The ones I go to are trying to become serious grocery stores and are becoming major competitions to the real stores here. They're just trying to take over. Then there's the war with Amazon. Anyway, items that cost 7 bucks at another store, cost 5 at Walmart. That's been my experience, at least.

http://thenextweb.com/shareables/2012/11/07/forget-apps-and-other-useless-startups-these-four-african-girls-have-created-a-pee-powered-generator/

Four ingenious African teenagers have rigged up the world’s first pee-powered generator. Yeah, we’ve heard all that "African problems need African solutions" stuff — and this is a pretty fantastic solution— but right now we also know a few Sandy-clobbered East Coasters who could really use one of these. The girls’ invention premiered at Maker Faire Africa in Lagos, Nigeria, and it’s just plain awesome. We won’t bore you with the chemistry that involves breaking down urea into nitrogen, water and hydrogen and somehow utilizing liquid borax, but suffice it to say that using their contraption a measly quart of urine provides six hours of electricity. Amazing.

Meet Penn State’s Squirrel Whisperer
She is a freshman this year, from State College, who is best known for playing with squirrels, while also donning them with tiny-squirrel sized hats. Mary has a love for all animals, however she favors squirrels above all other campus wildlife because they are the friendliest (when they’re hungry).


She made the tosh blog, my buddy was telling me about her. Unreal, she does this every day of the week.

That's the biggest IT scandal, since Hans Reiser (creator of the ReiserFS file system for Linux) offed his Russian wife.

PF, this is for you.

Getting to toke up legally during a game of Halo 4 isn't the only awesome thing in your future under the new pot laws, stoners. A new genre of ganja gastronomy may also be on the horizon, as reports show weed-loving chefs are already prepping their pot-infused olive oils (two teaspoons is about three to four joints, they say), with the hope of catapulting the underground marijuana cuisine into the mainstream. Federal law still prohibits marijuana possession, so that issue will have to be resolved before you start seeing "braised marijuana duck roast" on the menu. But if it is, you'll soon be able to get hungry, go eat, and get hungry all over again.

THC has actually been found to reduce tumor growth in common lung cancer by 50 percent and to significantly reduce the ability of the cancer to spread, say researchers at Harvard University, who tested the chemical in both lab and mouse studies. The researchers have even gone so far to suggest that THC could be used in a targeted fashion to treat lung cancer by interfering with angiogenesis, which promotes cancer growth.

Even very heavy, long-term marijuana users who had smoked more than 22,000 joints over a lifetime seemed to have no greater risk than infrequent marijuana users or nonusers.
