Roommates stabbed each other over an iPhone vs. Android debate
"When police arrived at the apartment complex, they learned that the roommates had been drinking and arguing over their mobile phones.

Police say the two men broke beer bottles and stabbed each other with them. One of the men smashed a bottle over the back of the other man's head.

Police aren't sure who they will charge or if charges will be filed at this time. Both men are being treated at an area hospital for their injuries.

Police did not respond when [a local news station's photographer] asked which phone is better."

A Chinese programmer spent 500,000 yuan (about $82,000) — the equivalent of two years' salary — on iPhones. He arranged the gadgets into the shape of a heart, got some flowers, and proposed to his girlfriend in front of friends and colleagues.

She said no.

Scary squirrel sets record for "Fluffiest Tail in the World"
The tufted ground squirrel (Rheithrosciurus macrotis) has a reputation for hunting deer – well, more like serial killing deer – if legends are to be believed. It’s also the official owner of the Fluffiest Tail in the World.

(I don't know how true this whole story actually is, but it makes for an amusing read. After all ... it contains murder, mystery, and some oh-so-fluffy tails.)

Too much love?
"The famed Pont des Arts in Paris cannot handle so much amour. The bridge is a special spot for couples to attach 'love locks' and toss the keys into the river Seine as a symbol of devotion and unending romance. But the Pont des Arts had to be evacuated this weekend because part of its railing collapsed under the weight of so much hardware. Around 2.4 meters of railing broke, rendering the bridge unsafe.

Even prior to this damage, some Parisians (who clearly do not realize they live in the most romantic city in the world) have complained that the locks are an eyesore. Mayor Anne Hidalgo organized a petition to have them removed, claiming they are 'like a plague on our city’s historic bridges and sites.' Really, where is the love?"

Lawyer 1: ”I’ll object to the tone of the question. You make it sound like it’s unbelievable to you that he wouldn’t know what the definition of a photocopy machine is.”
Lawyer 2: ”I didn’t ask him to define it. I asked him if he had any.”

This video is utterly amazing. It's a dramatization of a legal deposition in which there's an absurd argument about the definition of a photocopier. While the performance is a wee bit sensational, no words were changed or modified from the original legal transcripts.

This actually happened, folks.

(The relevant parts start around page 280.)

They came in through the Chinese takeout menu
"Unable to breach the computer network at a big oil company, hackers infected with malware the online menu of a Chinese restaurant that was popular with employees. When the workers browsed the menu, they inadvertently downloaded code that gave the attackers a foothold in the business’s vast computer network."
