(News) The Disease From Outter Space?

I saw this story on the cthulhu_connect community earlier and thought I'd repost it for those of you who aren't on it.

It's a story about an emerging disease that has hit southern Texas (amongst other places). It's weird and I was amused when I googled it to find one of the theories is that it is a space disease carried to Earth by a meteorite!

Mind you it is a damn weird one...

Big Game Hunter Discovers New Bear - Then Does What Big Game Hunters Do...

The first wild grizzly bear/polar bear hybrid has been discovered in the wild. The bear, with white fur and brown patches, is the first of its kind outside of a zoo envirnonment to have been found. Whilst stories of these mysterious bears have circulated for years DNA tests carried out on the bear have now provided conclusive proof.

Unfortunately the DNA was extracted out of this new cross-breed after it was shot by a big game hunter.

Cup Finals...

What a great cup final day! Still watching the Liverpool - West Ham match (currently 2-3 to West Ham!) and just changed channel to see how the Scots teams where doing just in time to catch Gretna score against Hearts to make it 1-1!!

For a team in the third tier of Scottish football Gretna are stunning!

The English Cup Final has been great - with West Ham's goals being great fun to watch :P

I woinder if today is the day of the underdogs...?
