"Chechen Terrorists to be Buried in Pigskin
According to the Moskovski Komsomol newspaper, Russian security forces have decided to bury the terrorists from last's week's hostage siege wrapped in pig's skin. The aim is to deter potential Islamic terrorists from future attacks.
Shahidi (Jihad martyrs) believe by their nefarious acts that they ascend immediately to heaven. Using their beliefs against them, wrapping their corpses in 'unclean' pigskin prevents them from entering heaven for eternity."

"Superman actor Christopher Reeve is so pleased with his progress that he is certain he will walk again. Reeve, who has been paralyzed since a riding accident in 1995, is confounding medical science by regaining movement. He says, "I'm positive I will walk again." In fact, doctors have been so surprised by the 50-year-old's progress that they want to study him. Reeve recently showed a neuroscientist that he was able to move his finger again and was delighted at the response to his feat. He says, "I showed him my finger movement, and from his reaction you'd have thought I'd just walked on water! He said I should take part in a study, and put aside my other activities - acting, public speaking, writing, travel - in order to focus on exercise, which I did." However, neither Reeve nor scientists can define what is exactly happening in his body. He says, "The physical exercise may be stimulating nerve pathways that remained intact after my injury, but went to sleep through disuse. The other possibility is that the spinal chord - if driven by exercise - can regenerate to some extent. That's the only possible explanation, because there's been no medical intervention." Reeve does realize that because of his wealth he can easily afford treatment denied to others - and thinks this is unfair. He adds, "I've been able to afford things that should be available to everyone, and should be paid for by insurance. I hope my progress will change the way insurance companies work.""
Thats really cool, hopefully he does it.

Hmm, Daylight Savings Time was yesterday. Unfortunately, I forgot to set the clock I see when I wake up back. So, this morning, I woke up, looked at the clock and said, "Crap, I'm really late for class...theres no way I can make it there on time to be able to do anything." So I went to bed to wake up for Chem at 1. I woke up at what I thought was 12 and said, "Nooo, I'm going to be late." I then proceeded to look at my cellphone and smack myself upside the head. I could of made it to my first class, I was actually waking up the normal time. Doh. I then get here, and guess what? Only 4 kids were in the class I missed anyway AND I handed in the homework for it last week. So, I didn't miss anything and got to sleep in. Weee
