Man Facing Murder Charges Wants His “MURDER” Tattoo Removed: A Kansas man facing first-degree murder charges is trying to convince the state to bring in a tattoo artist to obscure or remove a giant “MURDER” tattoo he has on his neck before the trial begins, fearing it could prejudice his case. Probably a smart idea! I mean at the very least, I’d see if they could change the tattoo to read “MANSLAUGHTER!”
No Charges for Teen Airline Stowaway to Hawaii: The FBI says it will not prosecute a runaway teen who survived freezing temperatures and extremely thin air during a 5.5 hour flight to Hawaii after crawling into the wheel compartment of a Hawaiian Airlines jet.

Iceberg Six Times The Size Of Manhattan Breaks Off Antarctica: Scientists are monitoring an iceberg roughly six times the size of Manhattan - one of the largest now in existence - that broke off from an Antarctic glacier and is heading into the open ocean.

Michigan Man Gets a Bionic Eye: A Michigan man who suffered from a degenerative eye disease that left him blind can now see glimpses of his wife, grandson and cat thanks to a computerized “bionic eye.” Sadly, the eye was immediately hacked into and now all he basically sees is porn all day long.
Navy Investigating the Blue Angels: Documents show that the Navy have reassigned a former commander of the Blue Angels, its acrobatic fighter squadron, and is investigating allegations that the elite team of pilots was a hotbed of hazing, sexual harassment and other forms of discrimination.
