When two men broke into his office in Milian, Italy, professional hypnotist Filadelfio Munafo, 39, put them in a trance - or so he thought until he told them to hand over their guns and they shot him. He explained later, "I was sure I had them in my power."

The Onion is one of the funniest things out there... but people from outside the USA should realize that it's a mock newspaper, not a real one. It's published by students at the University of Wisconsin. I have a friend who sold a story to them, once, which was the highlight of his life.
