    It's nice that the idiots have got another apocalypse to lose their cookies over now that the Mayan thing was a fizzer. It's just a shame there's such a short lead-in, no real time to plan death cults. You can still send all your money to me though if you want in, given that you won't need it once the world ends...

    @Scrymgeour - ah, the Daily Fail. Glad to see they're keeping their standards down to what we've come to expect. Also, if you're feeling dissatisfied with that eschatology, try this one! No need to thank me, we aim to please.

    The bloke who walked into the lions' den got an honorable mention as well.

    Speaking of which: South African bloke commits suicide by walking into lion cage at zoo

    Farage (the UKIP leader) is clearly in damage limitation mode.

    The question on everybody's mind during the winter storm currently working its way across the US: is it snowing in New Orleans?

    @glukkake Trust me, we're all tired of it as well. We average one hard freeze every two years, and there's been two in the past month alone. Nothing down here is built for this sort of sustained cold.

    Regarding this kind of information gathering by general population, It's worth having a look at 'Six Landscapes' by Trevor Paglen
