In other news people in Mexico are getting so sick of how shitty the politicians are that they're now running campaigns for various animals as mayor of their provinces.  The most popular one is named El Burro Chon.  He has a Facebook page, which I have of course liked.

Watch a young boy explain why Egyptians threw out the Muslim Brotherhood -- Source: BuzzFeed

"In a video posted in March, that is picking up steam now, a young boy laid out much of the reasoning behind the country's growing discontent with its government."

Boy, that escalated quickly.

The whole story confuses me. I mean, even if we ignore the way the crowd reacted, why did the referee even have a knife.

Plenty of people in the US carry pocket knives around habitually because they're excellent utility tools.  Maybe it's the same in Brazil?  Also, do we know what the reason for stabbing that player was?

...maybe he argued with a call the ref made?

We had a giant accident in Quebec this weekend.

A tactical warhead would have done less damage than this major fuck up.

They use that term in the article "possibly missing." How is somebody *possibly* missing!?

If you live in that small town and gave no sign of life, they assume you are dead right now.
The bodies are burned so badly that they can't know who all the corpses belong to.

I won't lie, I've used YouTube for makeup tips (not the crazy stuff like brushing galaxies on your eyelids or how to apply false eyelashes, but 'normal' makeup tips).  Here's a 13 year old who did the same.  Unlike most, she was battling cancer and recently lost the battle.  That's her last video, and I admire the girl's spirit while in the middle of chemo.  Too many in my family and in friend circles have had someone lost to cancer, so I kinda wanted to give a nod.
And also, because Ellen Degeneres is awesome, she got in touch with Cover Girl to make her an honourary Covergirl-girl

Yeah, so a 39 year old is in a contest with a bunch of teenie-bopping girls to meet Taylor Swift backstage....to sniff her hair.  And thanks to the internet, he's in the lead!
