This is hands down one of the craziest things I've ever heard. Story is over a month old so sorry if it was already posted and I missed it but this definitely blew my mind.

Spectators cheered as entire Cambodian Midget Fighting League squared off against African Lion

Tickets had been sold-out three weeks before the much anticipated fight, which took place in the city of Kâmpóng Chhnãng.

The lion killed 28 of the midgets in 12 minutes, and the rest were rendered unable to fight back. I think this is a horrible story, and shows exactly how stupid people really can be.

The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity.

What happens when we're dead? The irony is that all our questions will be answered after we die. We spend our whole life trying to figure out the truth and the only way we'll find out what it is, is to get hit by a bus. And the only comfort for Christians is that God is driving that bus. - John Ryman

The first thing that came to mind when I read the thread title was that god is ANGRY. First the Jesus statue gets struck by lightning the other day, then the 42 midgets get mauled by a lion...the same number of kids that got mauled by the two bears from the Elijah story in the bible.
