Preparing for the inevitable.
You know your life is a fucking trainwreck when you obituary has already been written at 26.

I don't really get how it's funny to come up with some faux-pop culture reference when a guy has just been found dead.

Tragic.

I was on The Soloist set when news broke.

Somber vibes. A few fans freaked out.

It should be interesting to see how the producers change the Batman campaign as a result. The last work of a great young artist.

Not just female suicide bombers...but female suicide bombers that have Down's Syndrome.
The Iraqi official quoted says "mentally retarded", but another report specifically mentioned Down's Syndrome and that one of the women was apparently known as the "crazy lady" by people who frequent the bazaar.

Could this case be any more confusing? Could I want to kick Joran van der Sloot in the shins any harder?

How fitting...a honky-assed white boy wearing G-Unit gear. I think his sentence should be walking up and down Crenshaw Blvd in South Central L.A. wearing that.

This ehm... This was my local DIY store.



Started 20 minutes before closing time, and well and truly wrecked the place in about an hour. There's a garden center on the left side, which miraculously didn't also catch fire. The firies did a great job. The wall separating the two was designed to keep fire out, but apparently they're only supposed to last about an hour (and this went on all night). Lucky.

There are rumours that it may have been arson, since the fire started in the terpentine/paints isle. Thankfully the few customers that were there and the ten people at work there made it out safely.

There are some awfully good jokes going around too. "The fire brigade didn't want to come out first, since it was a DIY fire" made me laugh. The store also had a promotion on with the slogan "become our DIY champion." In Dutch, "DIY champion" translates to "klus kampioen." The Dutch word for putting out a fire is "blussen," so they're now looking for their very own "blus kampioen." Ahh, puns.

DIY places may burn well, but not as well as cardboard box warehouses.
This thing was massive. 25,000 square foot facility, apparently full of cardboard. They said you could see it from over ten miles away.

If this doesn't chip your heart a little bit, you don't have one.

Cuba's ailing leader Fidel Castro has announced he will not return to the presidency, in a letter published by official Communist Party paper, Granma.

Am I the only who chuckled when reading that the official communist party paper sounds like "grandma?"

Moviegoers polled pick Juno to win Oscar.
Hardly shocking, since more people saw it that No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood combined.

Not a headline, but I found this amusing in my Yahoo news.

Quote:
Capello next links up with England's players for their friendly against France late next month. He is already speak English well enough to communicate with them, but hopes to be more fluent by the time they travel to Paris, even if some of the regional accents are proving impossible for him to understand.
It had an AFP stamp on it. I didn't link it because Yahoo takes things off rather quickly sometimes.
