CLOSE ass meteor in Russia from the other day.  Russian drivers are crazy, and everyone had a dash cam to capture it.

Really amazing.  Yodes, you on this?

1Up is being shut down.  This makes me sad, that site has some of the best video game writing on the web.

Don't worry, IGN lives on.  They have some of the worst video game writing on the web!

Yeah, I'd hate to see 1Up staff pressed into writing in an 'IGN style'.

This part of the story is particularly Japanese
Quote
The paper quoted neighbours as saying Okada had been a doting father who would often delay the start of his working day to enjoy breakfast with his daughter.

In today's news, Cyprus is planning to levy a 'one time' tax on the deposits of citizens and non-citizens.  Anyone with under 100k euros in their bank account will have 6.75% removed, more and 9.9% is removed.  Needless to say, this is totally not causing any problems like people rushing to banks or ATMs to drain their accounts before their money is stolen.

EDIT: Good news, they've (shockingly) voted against this.

Three articles.  The first two detail the event, a teacher who had recently gotten a sex change was found killed.  The final article is an editorial by a writer who said the teacher should have been let go (written several months before her death).

Thanks, Dice. When I posted these to my Facebook I put emphasis on the sex change part in the titles. As if a school teacher committing suicide wasn't enough, they had to make a freak show out of it.
