Eh, I think not!
Second verse, same as the first! It appears as if "Dear Leader" & North Korea are at it again. South Korea is a shining example of the potential a United Korea could be. I know it's wishful thinking, but I keep hoping one day the North will renounce their regime and re-unify with the South.
... an elegant weapon, for a more civilized day."
For me personally, the moment in Star Wars where Luke ignites his father's light saber for the first time grabbed me and didn't let me go as a fan.
I wish I could say the same thing about a moment (any moment) in the prequels that compares, but ...
Are you kidding? A 21-pound catfish with a child's pink Barbie fishing pole?! You think Barbie rods will now be on the front display at Bass Pro Shop's fishing section?!

At least she was legal! I've heard that saying before about how several years difference in age matters not if you're truly in love, but this is ridiculous. In fact, I bet the age difference in this story tops Anna Nicole Smith marrying oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall!
A lot of women in the world today can say they're married to a soldier, but I'm betting she was the only one left who could say she was married to a confederate soldier. Wow!

If for no other reason, to stay in a capsule hotel. Definitely different, yet very efficient, and very cool. All reviews I've read so far say that, despite the human kennel-like space you sleep in, the hotel is kept impeccably clean, the sheets are fresh, the bathrooms are well kept, and most important, it's affordable (about 30$ a night).
The Japanese are truly the masters of making the most out of a confined space!

It's the scene where Jake & Elwood are being chased by the cops in the bluesmobile, and once they exit the vehicle, the car falls completely apart in front of them.
I can imagine the next owner of this truck will witness the same thing!

It must get pretty boring behind the counter sometimes at fast food restaurants. Leave it to these Rhodes scholars to find a solution to cure their boredom. On top of that, they broadcast their little stunt on Myspace. Morons!
Think twice the next time you reach for silverware at Burger King, McDonald's, etc.!

According to reports, the fire at one point grew to 3 alarms at the Cupertino facility. Thankfully, fire fighters were able to finally extinguish the flames, and an investigation is currently underway to ascertain the reason behind the fire.
You wouldn't suspect someone would've been motivated to start a fire at Apple, would you?!
First digitally inserted fireworks, and now this. They say the little girl wasn't cute enough. Have they ever heard of makeup? With all the $ the Chinese were pumping into the opening ceremonies, how hard would it have been to toss this young singer into a max factor chair, and doll her up nice for her performance?
Here is the photo of the two girls. On the left: the girl who actually sang the song. On the right: the girl chosen to lip-sync.

Michael Phelp's performance at the Beijing Olympics has been nothing short of amazing. Inspiring, indeed!
Here's a thought. Instead of paying $110.00 an hour to exercise in front of someone else's Nintendo Wii, why not just fork out the required $280.00 and obtain your very own Wii? That way, you can exercise to your heart's content at home!
This guy loved his football a little too much! The Pacific Ocean can have it.

"SLACKER!" -Mr. Strickland
A mere hug warrants detention?! I'm sorry, but don't these schools have bigger fish to fry?
Ouch, that'll leave a mark!
I guess that's why she's referred to as the ex-girlfriend.
After reading this story, alternatives to air travel are definitely looking up!
I've always advocated research to create this form of travel!

I would love to have been a fly on the wall when this couple opened a letter indicating they were banned from Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines and its affiliates for life. After repeated cruises with RC, time and time again, this couple moaned and complained about everything. In a few instances, the cruise line agreed with them, and they were properly compensated. The majority of the time however, Royal Caribbean did not see it their way, and finally grew sick of the racket they were running to get refunds and freebies. Way to go, RC. Too many companies these days bend to the will of the consumer on every little thing, even if it isn't justified. Royal Caribbean took a stand. Props to them.
Anyone who's been in customer service long enough knows there are consumers out there who abuse the system to get unjustified compensation and freebies, at the expense of the merchant who was not at fault. I'm willing to bet this couple will go and sail on another cruise line, and start the same damn thing all over again. My hope is, inside of a couple of years, I'll be reading how they were banned from Carnival Cruise Line for life!
Not one, not two, but three missile silo crews were caught sleeping on duty at a North Dakota military installation.
Talk about being busted down to private!
This Ohio inmate claims he's too fat to be executed, stating his excessive weight doesn't allow for veins to be properly found for lethal injection. In fact, medical technicians at the prison have been unsuccessful at locating veins in him during previous medical procedures.
Ok. Fine. You know what? There's more than one way to peel a banana, even a fat one.
The State of Ohio should go drag out Old Sparky from the closet, and make this convict shake like jello for his crimes!
This idiot called 911 (twice, no less) because the local sandwich shop left the sauce off his italian sub! As a result, he was arrested by police for improper use of the 911 service.
This is the same kind of malcontent who intentionally ignores a low water crossing barrier during a flood, gets trapped, requiring emergency crews to rescue him, then complains when the county sends him the bill. Way to go, Mensa!
I personally hopes he gets his request granted. With summer temperatures being what they are, I'm sure a good kilt would provide some relief from the heat.
Of course, I can only imagine what the next USPS strike will look like(think the kilt flashing scene from Braveheart)!

I've seen some pretty good pranks at graduations before. You know, grads wearing nothing under their gown, crazy messages on the top of their caps, mooning the audience on stage, etc. This however, truly ups the ante. Talk about major cajones!
With The Dark Knight chasing Titanic's overall box office take, Warner Bros. and DC Comics should now have the clout to greenlight a long overdue adaption of Green Lantern.
It doesn't matter to me if the main character is Hal Jordan, John Stewart, or Kyle Rayner. Villains? Sinestro, of course.
No more excuses, DC. Get it done, and make it good!
Women at a recent birthday party in Berlin were surprised when the police that showed up we're not male strippers, but indeed police!
What I've been told about German Polizei, it's not too hard to tell if they're the real deal or not. Just look out the window for the Polizei meat wagon. Look to see if they're carrying the infamous German Polizei rubber batons. Did they swagger in with a smile on their face, shirt partially unbuttoned, or did push their way in with steely-eyed stares? Bad call, ladies.
