More on the rape, this time what the boyfriend had to say:

Now, while the girl obviously had the priority, you'd think that they police could've waited until this guy was at hospital himself.

Anyway, North Korea is about to receive a visit from Google, and the US isn't impressed...

Not actually a headline that left me speechless, but a sequel to one: the Pakistani teenager shot in the head by the Taliban is out of hospital.

I can see where he's coming from ..... but really.... idiot. What makes him any different than an internet troll looking to create havoc and alarm and basking in his own power and ego. He says he only does it to famous people who have the access to deny it publicly... but celebrities and people of power arent always watching everything on twitter or the net to catch it within an hour... and they DO have family and friends who would become alarmed.

You can forget your Olympians and movie stars and aged monarchs and politicians and so forth, Malala Yousufzai is my hero of 2012.

I wouldn't go that far, but that girl's got bigger balls (ironically enough) than those a-holes who shot her. Bigger balls than many others, really.

The aborting of female babies has come back to roost, with a singular lack of girls in the country, they're now being kidnapped and sold to families with sons and no local females to marry.
