    Yyyeah, digging around their website some more makes them seem even slightly less credible than said internet petitions. They apparently have one solitary member, who has a gmail address as a primary contact.

    It's just a big PR stunt by Sony for the PS4 reveal, just went a little bit wrong with the injuries in Russia.

    This has been a crazy week of news - NK detonate bomb that will fit in a missile (that Iran will give them), Pope resigns, meteor injuring hundreds and the world's most famous disabled athelete kills his gf.

    This is a few years old and I only stumbled across it today. It's a long and genuinely harrowing read, but I think it's worth the slog if you can take it, because it's... I don't know what the word is for this. It has large things to say about being human.

    Fatal Distraction: Forgetting a Child in the Backseat of a Car Is a Horrifying Mistake. Is It a Crime?

    Wow!

    One of the reasons I'd be terrified to have children. I have one of those memories that remembers the random pointless shit from years ago, and forgets some important stuff just like that.

    Really scary.

    Both putty-faced reactionary David Cameron and Clanger-in-human-form Ed Milliband have weighed in with responses to Hilary Mantel's essay about royalty.

    Neither appear to have read it.

    Caught someone on TV calling Kate a wag. Boos from the audience but he was on the money. She was groomed to marry a rich bloke and produce some babies. Just with a posh accent.

    Well indeed they are. Nothing against her. But she does seem dead inside. Ideal for the family.

    Good to see there are at least some things you can depend on in this uncertain world.

    One if the papal candidates is a fucking homophobe (ok, probably ALL, I grant you).

    Links paedophilia with the gays.

    Ben Fogle's psychotic episode.

    He thinks he was spiked. I think he just had a terrible dawning realisation that he has no chance of escaping his John Craven shaped future.

    UK's top Catholic accused of inappropriate behaviour.

    I can't tell you how happy this makes me! (With apologies to those abused). This chap is thoroughly evil, spouts the most obnoxious homophobic bile, threatens the Scottish Government with the withdrawal of the Catholic vote if they don't do as he says, equated gay sex to bestialty....he's just a cunt.

    He bizarrely stated that priests should be able to marry last week...which could mean it's a smear campaign by the Vatican to discredit him...but still, this is a huge story.

    Hope none of you tweeted pictures purported to be Jamie Bulger's killer as they're going to be served contempt of court notices.

    "I just felt like this baby was at higher-than-normal risk, and deserved our best shot," Dr. Hannah Gay, a pediatric HIV specialist at the University of Mississippi, said in an interview.
    I can see the Sun headline.
