Kids love eating road kill

It's been over a week since I last posted (shame) but as always, there's some interesting stuff going on, so let's get to it...

Some idiot American who fell in love on the Internet decided to try and walk from North Dakota to Winnipeg to meet his cyber-lover. Problem is, its WINTER and he was walking to WINNIPEG! To find out if he survived (hint: Charles Darwin would be disappointed) check out the link.

I see earlier this week the Pope called abortion and same-sex marriage "evil." He also compared abortion to the Halocaust. Such strong language from a man who apparently couldn't find any words sufficient enough to condemn or even acknowledge the repeated raping of children by many of his priests. I feel a Catholic/Pope/hypocrisy rant coming on, but I'll save that for another day.

Kraft foods has pissed off the New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) by launching a new candy that's shaped like critters run over by cars—complete with tire treads. An SPCA spokesperson says, "It sends the wrong message to children, that it's OK to harm animals."
Give me a break. First, it's a gummi candy so we're not even talking about real animals! Secondly, I don't think the SPCA realizes how ridiculous they look on this one. What are they going to do next next, show kids videos of the terrible pain and suffering these gelatin candies must endure during production? Besides, do they really think kids are going to eat this stuff and then start running down squirrels on their bikes? Ridiculous.
