Gulp! 18-inch dog swallows 16-inch stick

Yahoo! News - Gulp! 18-inch dog swallows 16-inch stick

Ok this is near the top of freak things that can happen. In my mind I'm picturing a dog on a stick... kind of like beef teriyaki.

Haha I hate cats, but this is actually kind of funny, well, not the shooting, but the headline is kind of misleading. Its not like the cat put its paw on the trigger and aimed....

Dan Rather Set to Leave 'CBS Evening News'

Yahoo! News - Dan Rather Set to Leave 'CBS Evening News'

Yeah he screwed up, and yeah, he was a little crazy, but as the big three anchors leave their posts we are seeing the results of a shift in media power. While internet news organizations, bloggers, and cable news networks reflect a more democratic system, there will be some things that will be missed about the old system. Good news for Rather fans, he's still going to be a reporter.
 

Harvard kicks out cheaters

Reuters News Article

Someone broke into a website that made it so that people could find out if they had been accepted to Harvard Business School before they were supposed to... 119 people tried it out, Harvard found out who they were, and then told them to get lost. I think that's awesome.

Firefighters fetch stranded cat, would-be rescuer from tree

Firefighters fetch stranded cat, would-be rescuer from tree - Bangornews.com Staff: "'We don't go get them,' Assistant Chief Vance Tripp said Sunday afternoon. 'Cats will come down out of the trees eventually. You don't see any skeletons of cats up in trees.'"

Easily one of the funniest quotes I've seen but its true. Read the article, people were upset that the fire department didn't care that the cat was up in the tree for four days. Oh yeah, meanwhile, in that time the same heartless fire department was directly responsible for saving five lives.... they must have messed up priorites.
But then some local hero goes up into the tree and gets stuck himself, which ended up costing the taxpayers of Bangor up to $1000 for the fire department to come out. All for a cat that would have got out at some point anyway.

Leno Surrogate Handles Jackson Jokes

Yahoo! News - Leno Surrogate Handles Jackson Jokes
Because Leno is going to be called on as a witness in the trial, he isn't allowed to publicly talk about it. So this kind of ruins his ability to tell jokes, so his way around it is to have someone come on stage and tell the jokes for him.... awesome.

CNN.com - Fossett makes history - Mar 3, 2005: "Fossett has proved himself to be a modern-day Magellan, the mariner whose expedition circumnavigated the globe in from 1519 to 1521. In 2002, Fossett was the first solo balloonist to circle the globe nonstop, despite an on-board fire and dangerous winds. Two years later, he and his crew made the fastest circumnavigation on a sailing ship: 58 days."
