Never ending love unearthed in Italy

The word this week read and cried to the story of the couple, killed in a car crash in their 90s, who held hands in the ICU as they both passed away from earth. But try this: A couple who held their hands for 1,500 years have now been found!
Bones of couple unearthedThe skeletal remains of a Roman-era couple have been unearthed.. revealed now, they held their hands, in death, for about 1,500 years.
According to Italian archaeologists, the man and woman were buried at the same time between the 5th and 6th century A.D. in central-northern Italy. The woman is positioned so she appears to be gazing at her male partner...
The discovery of the eternal love was made in Modena during construction--it was 23 feet below earth's surface..
What did this burial mean? ...the love of lives, dead at the same time, buried together... until now, when this modern generation unearthed the bones and wondered: Why does this all mean. True love? Cue MHZ 528... I need to be grounded.

Tis the season to get scared at movies

This entertainment world has been longing for a hit all year.. big budget busts at the box office cost studios fortunes.. massive headaches for some, wondering why no one wants to see movies anymore..
PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 3 SCREENSHOTEnter the Halloween season: PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 3 goes back into the past in the newest flick.. and theatergoers in the season to be scared like it.
$8 mil for opening midnight shows taken in already.. Friday night reports across the nation spell out a strong amount of money.
And if the reports are right, a $50 mil weekend is not out of the question. Also likely: The third in the series will do better than the sequel, something practically unheard of in the movie world. The midnight shows this week were 30% higher than PARANORMAL 2! 
Looks like viewers are crazing movies. Or just screams and scares before dinner on a date.
Either way, this weekend, it's working.

The kingdom on earth is never a guarantee

News from the Middle East rocking the elite world of Saudi Royalty: Heir to the thrown, Prince Sultan bin Abdul-Aziz is dead.


The prince was in his 80s. While not the typical fairytale age of aprince, Abdul-Aziz died undergoing a treatment in New York City.


The most likely candidate to replace Sultan as Abdullah’s successor is Prince Nayef, the powerful interior minister in charge of internal security forces, who is said to be closer to Islamic conservatives than the king..


The clarity  of succession is now in question. And women! Can women drove under a new ruler? ...Vote? .. breathe? ..


Life under the 'democracy' of Saudi royalty.. more in question this Saturday

Freedom of the press to show a bloody mess

Newspapers all across the world showing the bloody corpse of the formerly living Moummar Qaddafi, killed yesterday reportedly in his hometown.. Blood. Guts. Gore. It's Halloween, so why not.
BLOODY QADDAFI
But the showcase of the macabre is fascinating. Are world citizens only going to now believe the good word of a government if a gruesome showcasing of the killing occurs? And if that is the train of logic you're boarding, how did we kiss away the chance to show Osama bin Laden's blasted away head?

We are playing a new game in the war on terror. From your TSA inspected street corner all the way to the busiest airport, the world has changed. Look no further to pop culture gore, entertainment whores, and political bores.

On 24, you can see the enemy disemboweled. And at Walmart you can see Big Sis tell you not to trust your cashier, your neighbor, or yourself.

The strange new web we weave..

A word gone mad

A very disturbing story from China: A hit and run was basically ignored.. The video is obviously disturbing. It shows a 2-year-old girl who was run over by a van that then drove off, leaving her bleeding on the street. And for seven minutes, she was ignored.. Lots of soul searching in China… the girl was then run over by a second truck..

Horror in the Congo.. .. baby gorillas being stolen for animal trafficking .. $40,000 a baby gorilla.. Terrible story..

Human horror: Society rocked in Spain as allegations abound of nuns, priests, and doctors stealing babies and trafficking them.. The crime continued through the 1990s..

More human horror: Philadelphia freedom for four mentally ill adults chained in a basement, and for three who did it.... The world has gone mad..

News of another dead terrorist

Controversy took place earlier this year after the United States killed Osama bin Laden and dumped his body into the sea: Immediately after, news broke that Hollywood was ready to make a film on the event.

Sony films originally pinpointed October 2012 for the release date--right before the presidential election!

Now, Nikki Finke, owner of DeadineHollywood, reports that Sony is pushing the date to later in '12 or even 2013.. that way, it avoids the controversy of impacting the presidential race.

Of course today, as Gaddafi died, perhaps another film is being planned.. release date.. who knows..

Customers in NYC arrested for trying to close CitiBank accounts

Meanwhile, again, in America;


More dramatic video from OccupyWallStreet protesters: In this video, people were arrested at a New York City Citibank for the "crime"? of trying to close their accounts!

The dramatic video shows people in the bank being arrested and protesters outside on the streets giving quick and off the cuff legal advice, such as to get a lawyer, immediately..

Disturbing videos like this are being seen around the world today.. When America watched the rage in Egypt and Yemen, it was 'far away.' Now, the world is watching America....as police arrest citizens for closing bank accounts.

Police charge people in Times Square with horses

Meanwhile in America...


It's not Egypt. It's not Tunisia.. it's not Yemen. And it's not pretty. Last night, protesters from OccupyWallStreet had more than just chilly temperatures to deal with: Cops showed force with the use of horse..

The video is dramatic, and often language is not appropriate for children. But it's real, raw, and true: It was uploaded to the We Are Change YouTube channel. It shows cops on animal facing down protesters. Things got heated throughout the course of the video, with cops often closing in on people with horses.

Some comments say it's similar to the predicament protesters faced in Egypt during the summer riots in Cairo. While the New York City situation at this point is very different from the violent rage in the streets in the Middle East, it is clear that as the OccupyWallStreet protests continue, it is becoming a dicier situation and one with more tension and animosity between people and authorities..

A strange mystery condition causes a woman to age 50 years in just days

Nguyen Thi Phuong from Vietnam ate seafood, and now has aged 50 years in just days. She is 26 years old but now looks like someone entering last stages of life--a mind blowing story on this appearing in the UK TELEGRAPH today..


According to the report, the aging began in 2008 when she began the mega aging process. While some argue that she is afflicted by lipodystrophy - a rare syndrome that causes a layer of fatty tissue beneath the surface of the skin to disintegrate while the skin itself continues to grow, the true cause at this point remains a medical mystery. Sadly, no cure is available and her condition has only worsened since the aging process began in rapid fire only a few years ago.


According to the TELEGRAPH report, Phuong didn't go to the hospital after an extreme allergic reaction to seafood because of the cost: They didn't have enough money. She, instead, went to a pharmacy.. she doesn't recall the medicine she took.


But she does remember the effects, they are st…
