Meet William Torres and his slippers. William was arrested while driving in Allentown (Pa) on two counts of homicide and was known to be dealing coke and heroin from his home.

I’ve had an epiphany

I’ve seen the light, had an epiphany even. Tom Cruise tells us: Being a Scientologist, when you drive past an accident, its not like anyone else. As you drive past you know you have to do something about because you know you’re the only one that can really help. and later We are the authorities…

Laugh along with Louis Savain

In the comments to a previous post, "rebel scientist" Louis Savain made the following statements: I have made a falsifiable prediction about the human cerebellum based on my interpretation of certain Biblical metaphors.

Not so hard to swallow

Birdwatchers rushed excitedly to see a swallow that hasn’t been seen in Britain for 20 years – then got a nasty surprise when eaten by a hawk in front of their eyes. The twitchers had been watching the red-rumped swallow for 20 minutes when it stopped to rest on a TV aerial. It was then…
