One trend conspicuously absent from this list is competitive eating, although I don't have any statistics on fatalities. However, I remember the case of a radio contest in which people competed to drink the most water without going to the bathroom, during which one competitor died from water intoxication after drinking 14 liters of water within an hour.

The worst part was, a caller warned the radio host of that possibility, but he laughed it off and kept the contest going.
Have you ever seen someone dressed so oddly that you wished a plane engine would fall on them to end their depressing existence? (Shut up, yes you have.)

That's quite an accusation from someone whose party voted for C-51.

This goes a little beyond what's really necessary. Removing the battle flag from public places is a good step (if a small one) in reducing racist symbolism in the south. But showing the flag above civil war armies in the context of a game is historically accurate (if the armies depicted are those of Tennessee and northern Virginia, anyway).

But of course Apple has to go for the deluxe version of what everyone else is doing.
Apple has reportedly removed all games feauturing the Confederate flag from its App Store.

Canadians: Stop C-51

If you haven't already signed this petition through +OpenMedia.ca, make sure the feds know how you feel about them spying on you.

And remember: Both of Canada's founding political parties voted in favor of this bill. For those who want change, this fall's colours are orange and green.
The government has just rammed its reckless, dangerous, and ineffective Bill C-51 through Parliament. Tell Ottawa leaders they should promise to repeal this extreme legislation.

Fascinating beauty, thank you for this photo, which accentuates a strong exclamation, full of magnificence

“President Obama announced today he is continuing his policy of unconditional surrender to Fidel and Raul Castro by rewarding one of the most violently anti-American regimes on the planet with an embassy and an official representative of our government.”

Meanwhile, the most violently anti-American regime on the planet continues to criticize Obama for everything from his foreign policy to his successful health care compromise.
"It is time for our unilateral concessions to this odious regime to end..."

Putin wants to talk about equality and respect? I don't think those words mean what he thinks they mean.

Justin Trudeau is in a difficult spot. The third-party leader not only has to convince Canadians he’d make a better prime minister than Stephen Harper. He also must demonstrate why his Liberals would be preferable to Tom Mulcair’s increasingly centrist New Democrats.

Seems to me he failed when his party voted on C-51. Sorry Justin, you're just a red Conservative.
Now that the NDP has moved to the centre, why should voters choose Justin Trudeau over Tom Mulcair?

Canada's political system is not perfect by any means. We need more campaign reform. But it's interesting to note that the violations that sent this MP to jail wouldn't even raise eyebrows in the US.
Judge orders disgraced Conservative politician to one month in jail and 18 months probation for cheating on election spending.

Hard to present it more clearly than this.

Interesting art. Perhaps a statement about what we're doing with our agricultural land.

If you've never tried alligator, this is the place to do it. I was pleasantly surprised to visit a Louisiana-themed restaurant where the food wasn't brain-searingly spicy. The flavor of the gator came through perfectly. My wife and I decided to have an appetizer-only meal, and ended up trying six appies. In addition to the gator, the pecan-crusted brie and seafood boudin were great. The crab cake and battered shrimp were okay, but nothing special. The portion sizes for the appetizers are obviously intended for one person to enjoy before a meal, rather than for sharing. Overall, the food could use a little more spice, but they have a selection of hot sauces at the table to take care of that. I look forward to going back and trying some of their entrees.

Great shop, knowledgeable staff. I went in with a cheap clunker that was no longer adequate for my needs, and the salesperson helped me pick out a perfect bike without trying to up-sell me to something more expensive. The bike was well-adjusted and ran great right out of the shop, and they cheerfully took my old clunker to fix up and donate. And you can't go wrong with free service for the first year after buying a bike! The only reason there's a star missing is because they don't book appointments for service, and their queue for service can be several days long. However, when I explained to the owner that I didn't have access to a car, he arranged a drop-in time for me to get my initial service.
