http://townhall.com/tipsheet/christinerousselle/2013/10/08/north-korea-accuses-switzerland-of-human-rights-abuse-for-refusing-sale-of-ski-lifts-n1719501

Quote:
Here's a story that seems too absurd to be true: North Korea has referred to Switzerland’s refusal to sell them ski lifts a “serious human rights abuse.”
From the Washington Post:
North Korea has been working feverishly on constructing its first-ever ski resort, a lavish project that young leader Kim Jong Un personally set as a top national priority. But it has hit a major snag: It can't get ski lifts because of sanctions.
Unlike nuclear weapons or medium-range missiles, North Korea doesn't have the technology to make its own ski lifts. But the countries that do make them all tend to be in the West, where new sanctions imposed in March make it illegal to sell luxury goods to the Hermit Kingdom.
Finally, North Korea tried to import from a Swiss company, offering $7.7 million for the lifts. (...) When the Swiss government blocked the deal, Pyongyang had had enough. It issued a furious response via official state outlet KCNA, declaring, ‘This is an intolerable mockery of the social system and the people of the DPRK and a serious human rights abuse that politicizes sports and discriminates against the Koreans.’
Yes, North Korea, a country that is known for its eccentric leaders and labor camps, actually has the gall to accuse another country of “human rights abuse.” For a look at the horrific living conditions of North Koreans, take a gander at the average heights of North Koreans vs. South Koreans. Increased height is associated with a proper diet and healthy lifestyle. The average teenage North Korean boy is less than 5 feet tall—compared to the average height of 5’8 for a 17-year-old South Korean male. (For comparison’s sake, the average height of a male in the U.S. is roughly the same as it is in Canada.) Clearly, something is amiss.
North Koreans do not have freedom of speech, press, and citizens cannot leave their hometowns without permission. Apparently, they will not be skiing any time soon either.


I found this hilarious.

Doh! Darwin wins this round.

http://boston.cbslocal.com/2013/10/09/two-suspected-burglars-killed-when-blow-torch-ignites-fireworks-in-safe/

Quote:
HOPKINTON, NH (CBS) – Two men who allegedly broke into a Hopkinton, New Hampshire business on Tuesday morning were killed in a massive explosion, officials said.
The State Fire Marshal says that the men, identified as Lucas Bourke, 21, of Allenstown and Ethan Keeler, 21, of Epsom, were using an oxy-acetylene blow torch to try and cut into a large safe inside a workshop at New Yard Landscaping on Farrington Corner Road.
That safe contained a large amount of commercial-grade fireworks, which exploded.
The two men were killed in the blast.

it continues...

(Note: Of course, at least one perps was a lovely chap who put family first)

Kent Keeler, a cousin of Ethan Keeler struggled for answers on Wednesday.

Keeler says family members are wondering why Ethan would have put himself in that situation.

“I think he just didn’t know who he was yet,” said Kent Keeler. “I feel like he was trying to find out where he belongs.”


Had he lived he would have found out he belonged in prison!

It is now a felony in South Carolina to implement Obamacare.
