Speaking of....
Here's a making-of documentary about the "We Are the World" project, which I had never heard of before.

Northern Lights "Tears Are Not Enough"


I know the subject matter isn't funny, but do the words "Canadian version of 'We Are the World'" not want to make you laugh? We're talking Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, and other R&R Hall of Famers like Anne Murray and Corey Hart ("Sunglasses At Night"). This video gave me a real chuckle the other day.
Also, please notice with this random appearance of John Candy that ALL famine aid songs must contain a strictly non-singing celebrity; otherwise, it can't be a success. I give thanks to you, Dan Aykroyd. I give thanks to you.

Japanese Fart Wars of 1885


Yeah, there's a whole set.

Dyatlov Pass Incident


Here's the Wikipedia article on the Dyatlov Pass Incident, where nine hikers in the USSR died mysteriously while hiking in the Ural Mountains.
According to Wiki, "Investigators at the time determined that the hikers tore open their tent from within, departing barefoot into heavy snow and a temperature of −30°C. Though the corpses showed no signs of struggle, two victims had fractured skulls, two had broken ribs, and one was missing her tongue. Their clothing, when tested, was found to be highly radioactive."
