    Hmmm...I've seen this weird story going around the last couple of days, but I'm skeptical, as when I google it, all I see are "tabloid" looking sites carrying the story.

    Not new news, saw it yesterday but forgot to link it here.

    Train mows into crowds in India

    Has anyone else has seen this? Crowds enjoying and watching a Hindu festival whilst standing on train tracks weren’t able to hear the train blaring its horn as it plowed into them at speed. 59 dead so far, lotsa injuries, it’s just stupidly tragic to allow people to gather on live train tracks! The organisers couldn’t find a more suitable place to hold a festival in town? I can’t imagine what that scene must have been...

    EDIT: stupid autocorrect

    A Man Dressed His 5-Year-Old Son As Hitler For Halloween

    There’s a lot of really awful, depressing things that have been happening this year. Here’s yet another one. Bryant Goldbach, a resident of Owensboro, Kentucky, decided to dress his young son as Hitler and himself as a Nazi solider for trick-or-treating. His reasoning? Well, according to him, he really “loves” history.

    So the dog has to die because of this idiot! Either this guy ran out of lube, which I find hard to believe, or he wasn't feeding the dog properly, or I suspect it's beastiality.

    A Full Beaver Moon Is Coming Thanksgiving Night — So Don't Fall Asleep Right After Dinner

    Astronomers don't give Full Moons names, but over the years they have acquired nicknames by various cultures. The term Beaver Moon comes from Native Americans and colonial settlers, with some sources claiming it's because November was when traps were set, and others because beavers are at their most active before winter sets in. November's Full Moon has also been called Frosty Moon, Hunter's Moon and Oak Moon. Space.com reports that the Ojibwe people called November's full moon Little Spirit Moon, while the Tlingit people called it the Scraping Moon to mark the time when bears prepare their dens.
