  3. No, Pat Robertson, Killing Someone in a Video Game Isn’t a Sin

    "I've never played a video game." -- Pat Robertson, age 83

    In the latest round of "Person Says Dumb Thing About Video Games," Pat Robertson claimed that committing a sin like murder in a game is analogous to committing one in real life. He also admitted to never having played a video game, so he's clearly the foremost authority on video game ethics.

    I'm sorry to say that between the time I saw this link this morning and posting it now, its item page on Vampire Freaks now 404s. So this is not a purse that looks like a bloody meat cleaver. It's just a .jpg of a purse that looks like a bloody meat cleaver. Let us mourn. (via Boing Boing.)

  6. Bad News, Murderers! Geophysicists Are Using Science to Find Your Bodies

    If you're a murderer who's banking on no one ever finding the bodies you've hidden, you might have cause for concern.

  7. Woman’s Recent Death Ruled a Homicide Because of a Bullet Wound in 1982

    You know how sometimes in movies and television shows when cops interrogate someone who just shot a person that is now in the hospital, and to get the perp to cooperate they yell, "You better hope that guy you shot makes it, or you're going down for murder!" It turns out that even if the victim "makes it" for the next thirty years, but then dies of complications from the shooting, you're still going down for murder. That's exactly just happened in the case of 65-year-old Linda Knauss who died last week from a gunshot wound she sustained thirty years ago. Her death was just ruled a homicide.

  8. Furry Little Death Mills: Domestic Cats Kill up to 24 Billion Small Animals a Year

    Now that we live in a society whose cultural output is dominated by videos of kittens, people's gut reaction to cats is largely "Aaaawwwww." That makes it easy to forget that every cat on Earth is a nearly perfect machine built for the sole purpose of murdering small animals. Every now and again, we get a reminder of the fact, and the latest one is an estimate published in the journal Nature Communications this week suggesting that domestic cats in the United States are responsible for the deaths of 3.7 billion birds and  more than 20 billion small mammals every year. Doing that math, it appears that literally every second your beloved pet is not in you lap, it is snuffing out tiny lives with mind-boggling efficiency.

  9. Man Stabs Cousin to Death With Scissors Over Broken Marvel Glass, Alcohol Unsurprisingly Involved

    As it happens, collectors take whatever doodads they've decided to squirrel away rather seriously. These habits range in description from idle passion to dangerous obsession. Granted, Beanie Babies don't often cause fistfights these days, but that doesn't mean they couldn't. Things get even more serious if these collectibles happen to be fragile. A fight this past Wednesday took a dark turn when a man allegedly stabbed his cousin to death with scissors following the destruction of one of his Marvel Comics glasses. The two were, of course, drinking at the time.

  10. Jurors’ Facebook Friendship Casts Doubt on Murder Trial Decision

    Exactly how strong is the bond between Facebook friends? The Kentucky Supreme Court thinks it might be enough to throw out the decision of a murder trial. Kentucky Supreme Court Justice Mary Noble ordered a hearing for two jurors who helped rule against 28 year-old Ross Brandon Sluss, who was sentenced to serve life in prison on charges of murder, assault, and evidence tampering, after finding that they had a previously-established Facebook friendship with the victim's mother.
