German student attacks Hell's Angels with puppy →
A German student created a major traffic jam in Bavaria after making a rude gesture at a group of Hell’s Angels motorcycle gang members, hurling a puppy at them and then escaping on a stolen bulldozer. Germany get out of Swedens mind boggling absurdity spotlight. This is your first and only warning of nine, after which we’ll consider maybe doing something about it.
The Case for Calling Them Nitwits →
Nowhere is the gap between sinister stereotype and ridiculous reality more apparent than in Afghanistan, where it’s fair to say that the Taliban employ the world’s worst suicide bombers: one in two manages to kill only himself. And this success rate hasn’t improved at all in the five years they’ve been using suicide bombers, despite the experience of hundreds of attacks—or attempted attacks. In...
Pope begs forgiveness for abuse →
This is such a great read because it starts of with the catholic church admitting fault, taking responsibility and publicly acknowledgment they both need and are going to deal with the systematic sexual abuse within it.

The state will lose one, milks the other and then throws the milk...
Man drops trousers in foiled pharmacy heist →
So the guy takes a cobble stone and enters a pharmacy, then yells at the cashier to give her money. The cashier is too scared to press the alarm button whose purpose I’m now really perplexed about considering it’s not even being used during a cobble stone stickup. Then the guy runs away but trips to the point of depantsation. The general competence of Sweden’s criminals...
US must close foreign bases: opposition →
Sweden will ‘demand’ that the United States closes all foreign military bases if the Red-Green opposition wins power. That’s even more ridiculous than when the Social-democrats picked Mona Sahlin as their new party leader, if only slightly. Mona Sahlin was the minister that acquired 91 parking tickets in a year until the government simply gave up and bought her a parking...
