Serious shit still going down in Congo
Observer | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Their pleas for rescue increased in urgency. They began to fear the incredible -- that the UN would not get to them in time. The Lendu militia, like their enemies the Hema, have a well-earned reputation for cannibalism. They began to inch closer. The helicopter did eventually turn up. It picked up the major and the young captain -- but by then they were rotting in a ditch. Someone had burnt them with cigarettes, and cut out their brains, hearts, livers and testicles. 'Our assumption is that at least parts of these men were indeed eaten,' said a senior UN source involved in the internal inquiry into why the unarmed officers were left to die."

News Corporation | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"Men are doomed to extinction, victims of the decaying human Y-chromosome, the only piece of DNA men possess and women do not. So says Bryan Sykes, professor of human genetics at Oxford University... A 'genetic ruin littered with molecular damage,' the Y-chromosome cannot repair itself, nor arrest the steadily accumulating damage, he reports in Adam's Curse. ... because the chromosome's main function is switching on male embryos in the womb, its demise means the final curtain for men.

Endangered hospital acronyms
BBC | Submitted by: Daverince
"The inventive language created by doctors the world over to insult their patients -- or each other -- is in danger of becoming extinct. ... The increasing rate of litigation means that there is a far higher chance that doctors will be asked in court to explain the exact meaning of NFN (Normal for Norfolk), FLK (Funny looking kid) or GROLIES (Guardian Reader Of Low Intelligence in Ethnic Skirt). Dr Fox recounts the tale of one doctor who had scribbled TTFO [Told To Fuck Off] on a patient's notes. He told BBC News Online: 'This guy was asked by the judge what the acronym meant, and luckily for him he had the presence of mind to say: "To take fluids orally."'"
