    For me, it's this article I read recently. http://www.sommersandroth.com/wp-co...13551412642089087609Gonzalez-Toronto-Star.pdf Well, it's from the year 1992, but found it now. It's about this boy who won 20 million $ for being born with cerebral palsy, due to the negligence of the doctors. The boy sure got rich, but I wonder how he lived his life. Pretty irony, right?

    That child marriage is a legal grey area where I live. While discussing this with my colleagues I was adamant that there was no way our laws would tolerate it, but holy frak, it's not illegal after all. :confused:

    That they're silencing BIG BEN. Appalling, terrible decision pass by an appalling, terrible PM.
