There are hundreds if not thousands of news sources around the world all bidding for your attention. No matter what type of news you are attracted to there is always a headline every single day that captures your attention. I tend to look for the unusual.
While not a recent development or debate, this story struck me funny.
Man charged in Ont. after fight over whether Earth is flat or round

They say a woman who insisted the Earth was flat was locking horns with her boyfriend's father, who argued it is round. Investigators say the 56-year-old man grew so enraged that he started throwing things into their camp fire, including a propane cylinder. Firefighters were called to put out the flames. Police say the man took off and will face a mischief charge. They say "neither party would change their views."

Not much to the news story...but I find it so funny that this topic or others, can get people so enraged that they become violent.
So what headline caught your eye today?

Alcohol.

There had to be alcohol involved.

At least I really hope so.

Because otherwise? Stupid people bred.

Who throws a propane tank on a fire?

Funny thing..they never mention if the boyfriend agrees with the girlfriend or his father... Would love to have heard the entire conversation, because even though it turned violent, stupidity can be funny as hell.

Families...What are you going to do when your son marries a mouth-breathing moron? Apparently, "Throw propane tanks in the fire and run off" was an option I was not aware of until now.

The Father's Day barbecue is going to be far more interesting than I'd hoped for this weekend...

Maybe for today, and thats just maybe... I think the 911 calls over no chicken nuggets or the ensuing fights over it is right up there in the all time.

Of all the flat earthers, has nobody ever been to the edge? surely there must be one?

sure alcohol was involved, probably brewed on site. lol. I had a woman at a bar get pissed at me, near violent over something I said. Quote from a book as near as I could remember it, not sure which one maybe catcher in the rye.... I said only a fool wants to die a hero, a real man wants to live as one. (probably not exactly how it read)

She got pissed and said she would die for her children. I said yeah me too but would rather live saving them, Oh not her lol... she made it clear she wanted to die saving her kids. She was yelling. stupid argument with a stupid drunk person.

Didnt make headlines though lol

Why not both "flat and round"? You know, like a manhole cover? Or a penny! See, it is this "this or that" mentality that has landed us in the situation we are currently in by having to vote the "lesser of two evils" which leads to the violence...

Oh! I see! "Round" as in "spherical"! Then yes! I totally agree with the old man! By all means, through the propane grenade and run!

Vote: "round" like an orange (unless it has been run over by a manhole cover!)

Here's my post that caught my eye: Light-Speed Computer Chips via Carbon Nanotubes

Finally, after months of the US Presidential campaign, I have a reason to laugh at Canadians


Seriously, though, I don't mind what Canadians believe. Just keep the maple syrup coming.

Sorry, but the stupid is strong on both sides in that one.

I would love to know what kind of mental image that person had in their head because I can't even begin to process that.

Well have a laugh at our expense...goodness knows stupidity is not geographically condensed. And sadly, if the world was flat...we could just convince them all they were lemmings...
