Bad News Bears

Yikes, it's been a while since I've posted anything. Work got super crazy, and I'm finally getting back to a semi-normal routine. I even bought groceries yesterday! Unfortunately, in my absence the world has gone crazy.

  • A psycho murdered a dozen people in a movie theater and booby-trapped his apartment.
  • The Midwest is experiencing the worst drought it's seen since the Dust Bowl.
  • The NCAA handed down its final verdict to Penn State football. 
  • A pickup truck packed with 23 illegal immigrants got into an accident, killing 14. Police claim that this was the worst accident they had ever seen.

So... that's depressing. And it may make you want to dive into a hole where you can secretly hate every horrible person you wish you could punch in the face. Lucky for you, I was in a super boring meeting yesterday and decided to find some happy news out there! Amazingly enough, there's actually sites dedicated only happy news stories! NBC's Wonderful World is pretty sweet, and there are tons of others if you're willing to Google.

Feel free to listen to this dude playing 100 guitar riffs from awesome songs - in one take! - while you read.

  • The London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony is on Friday!
  • On that note, a double-amputee from South Africa, nicknamed "Blade Runner," will be competing in the 400 meter sprint at the Olympics. Not the Paralympics - THE. OLYMPICS. 
  • The San Diego Comic-Con wrapped up last week. There's approximately one zillion amazing new pictures, movie trailers, and rumors floating around the interwebs to fuel your inner nerd.
  • A little girl at SDCC asked Matt Smith (The Doctor) if he was afraid of the Weeping Angels. It was super adorable, and his answer was the greatest.
  • A 7 year old girl fell out of a 3rd floor window - and was CAUGHT, unharmed, by a neighbor!!

Hopefully this will brighten your day just a tad. There's actually a bunch of other things I think are awesome, so if you need some more let me know!
