This Twitter is brilliant. It just scoops up real crime articles that have “Florida Man” present in the title. SO GOOD.

MEANWHILE IN NORWAY: “Firewood programme sparks complaints on correct way to stack bark”

In most places across the world, the topic of firewood would hardly be expected to set the nation’s imagination alight.

But in Norway, a television programme on the subject of wood caused quite a stir, after splitting the country straight down the middle on how it should be stacked.

Nearly a million people, 20 per cent of the Norwegian population, tuned in to the programme when it was aired during prime time on Friday night. But the angry responses started almost as soon as it had begun.

On online dating

“We met on K-Date, it’s the dating section on the Kraft Foods website.” —Floyd (4.16)

On dating vocabulary

“Lovers…oh, that word bums me out unless it’s between meat and pizza.” —Secrets and Lies (2.8)

On Valentine’s Day

“Valentine’s Day is a sham created by card companies to reinforce gender stereotypes. [..] I’ll buy some cookies, but NOT for Valentine’s Day. These cookies celebrate the February 14th birthday of Anna Howard Shaw, famed American suffragette.” —Anna Howard Shaw Day (4.13)

On what we’re all really looking for

ACK ACK ACK

ACK ACK ACK

“I want someone who will be monogamous and nice to his mother. And I want someone who likes musicals, but knows to just shut his mouth when I’m watching “Lost.” And I want someone who thinks being really into cars is lame, and strip clubs are gross. I want someone who will actually empty the dishwasher instead of just taking out forks as needed – like I do. I want someone with clean hands and feet and beefy forearms, like a damned Disney prince. And I want him to genuinely like me. Even when I’m old. And that’s what I want.” —Lee Marvin vs. Derek Jeter (4.17)

MEANWHILE IN GERMANY: Internet access declared a basic right

A top German court has ruled that people can sue their Internet providers for damages if connection is lost. The court has ruled that access to the Internet represents a basic need in modern society.

The complaint that brought about the ruling came from a man who lost his Internet connection for two months due to an administrative error caused by a takeover of his Internet provider by another company. He is now entitled to monetary compensation – and while the amount may not be very high, the ruling reflects an important shift. With it, Germany’s Federal Court of Justice has stated that Internet connection is a modern necessity, on par with the right to mobility.

The court compared the situation to a car owner claiming damages after someone else has caused an accident that renders the car unusable for some time.A ‘vital’ part of lifeAmong other reasons for the judgment, the Federal Court states that “the majority of German residents use the Internet on a daily basis. It has become a medium that plays a vital role in the lives of most people, and whose absence has a significant impact on daily life.”

WHAT IS THIS

SO: I was initially looking for a picture that was like “Go Germany!” then I thought of their love of Hoff. I was searching for something that possibly combined the two but then saw THIS & had to stop. I mean, it chose ME.
