Again With The Numbers...

This just spotted on Google News:

Thousands flock for 2d day to Kennedy wake
Boston Globe - Brian R. Ballou, Andrew Ryan - ‎28 minutes ago‎
Thousands more people flocked again today to the Kennedy Library, with many coming before dawn to wait in a line two hours long to pay their respects to Senator Edward M. Kennedy.


It's not all about being first. Correct would be so much better.

Another good one from Chris! I don't know which station this is, but really - does it matter?

Protester Options

I'm not sure what to say about this one. Exactly what kind of option does she want? Perhaps the option to learn how to spell?

From an online newspaper, thanks to Chris!

Narrow Near Miss

Just saw this on

Building Rolls Over

Caught On Tape: A building in Cankiri, Turkey fell over and rolled onto its roof, nearly missing surrounding buildings.

Nearly missing surrounding buildings? You mean it didn't miss them and crashed into them? Hmm. Let's go to the videotape.

[watching video]

Nope. It clearly missed the surrounding buildings (which is very strange, I have to admit). What CBS meant to say was that it narrowly missed surrounding buildings.

But hey - who's going to notice?

You might catch the video here:
