Default astonishing news articles

I thought it'd be cool to have a thread for news articles you find interesting/disturbing/astonishing/whatever

here's one about a bizzare beast (along with photo) said to be a chupacabra (if you don't know what a chupacabra is, google it):

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2011/...20093476.shtml

and here's one about a disturbing brain eating amoeba:

http://news.yahoo.com/3-die-rare-bra...001505888.html

so yeah. post about and discuss various news here. (preferably avoid posting political news unless its funny or something)

edit: please describe your article so someone can avoid it if they wish.

not really a news article, but notch challenged Bethesda to settle thier stupid lawsuit with a game of Quake 3.

http://notch.tumblr.com/

Laughed my head off. Actually, i think if they accepted they would both gain popularity big time. too bad there's no chance of them accepting, and if they refuse they would probably lose popularity.
Very smart move by notch in my opinion.

well the onion does count as a news source really. since all its articles are meant to be satire and are untrue. but feel free to post them I suppose.

No, don't post Onion articles... nothing Hamumu-appropriate about that!

He is giving them a way out of the mess they have created, while he could use his popularity to damage them terribly if he wanted to. He is a much better man than I am.
