The most horrifying X-ray pictures you’re going to see today (unless you’re a trauma surgeon). A Melbourne kid got into a fight outside a club, which resulted in him getting a chair leg stuck through his eye socket. Not only is he still alive today, he even has 95% vision back in the affected eye, which is pretty amazing.
Automakers face $2 Billion class-action lawsuit over Canadian price discrepancies. Given that prices have been so out of range for so long it’s pratically surprising to see this sort of action being taken now. In pratical terms, I really doubt that this will be successful. I don’t think it’s based on solid law, unless the lawyers try and establish collusion between the automakers.

Man calls Feds inquiring on the whereabouts of his lost cocaine. What I don’t understand about US law enforcement is how the Feds had pretty much figured out he was a drug runner in the first place but had let him go, while medical marijuana patients get busted by SWAT teams every week.
A review of Vosges Haut Chocolat’s Bacon Bar. Yes, you read this correctly, a chocolate bar. With bacon. No, this isn’t a Simpsons joke. And it’s actually good, according to the reviewer. Ah, bacon, is there anything you can’t do?..
And you won’t believe what it is. See the comment after the picture for details.
I’ve not been a fan of BMW since Chris Bangle redesigned the formerly-understated German vehicles to the ugly, bloated, over-angled excesses that we see in them today. Fortunately it would seem that as time goes the cars are less and less Bangled (as it were) and look more and more like they actually have some BMW heritage in them, with the ultimate example being the new 1-series unveiled in Frankfurt. Could it be that BMWs of the future will look more and more like, well, BMW’s? Only time will tell.
If you’ve been going around Montreal since about mid-August, you’ve no doubt noticed enormous numbers of wasps. The normally woodland-dwelling insect seems to have found itself a new home in the city.
