Ever heard of a 61-second minute? Well, you're going to get one today. Time will stand still for one second today because a 'leap second' will be added to let a lagging Earth catch up to super-accurate clocks.
A leap second is a one-second adjustment that is occasionally applied to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) in order to keep its time of day close to the mean solar time. The leap second will be inserted tonight at 23:59:60 UTC.
It's true. The Earth is slowing down.
A topless protest by a Ukrainian feminist group livened up feeding time for Ukraine's Euro 2012 psychic pig Funtik, as soccer fans waited to see who he would choose to win this morning's quarter-final. (SFW)

Haven't covered this movement much here because I don't think it's productive to bitch without offering solutions, and it seems the movement's only solution is more bitching. Don't get me wrong - it's a start and that's cool, but so far the best thing I've seen come from OWS is these signs.
Now the courts are involved in the land with the highest HIV infestation problem on our planet as they duke it out over condom size.
As Madeline Kahn said to Cleavon Little in Blazing Saddles, "It's Twue."

Fox News and the WSJ call the matter of all the press coverage "piling on". But now that the unexplained death of Sean Hoare has come to light (not to mention the phone hacking of 13 year old murder victim Milly Dowler), perhaps this is a little more serious than previously thought.

Bobby Bradley floated into history early Saturday, taking off solo in a hot air balloon and landing perfectly about a half-hour later to become the youngest trained pilot to accomplish such a feat.

Japan was just rocked by a massive quake (8.9!), and here's some mind-blowing video of the resulting tsunami, which is burning in some parts. WARNING: people die in this video. Brace yourself for nature's mighty fury.
Close, but no cigar. However, in 1919 Boston tasted bizarre disaster as the north end of town was flooded with molasses after a storage tank burst... and in 2011, the Missouri interstate ran white with mayo. Close enough, AMIRITE???

I was downtown earlier today, and somebody's hijacked a whole bunch of Seattle Times newspaper boxes, replacing the display copies with another copy that looks like this.
