Signs of the Apocalyse

1. The Snuggie is a hugh success and top seller in the US. According to an article USA Today on the 27th of January, over 4 million Snuggies have been sold and the product has even developed a bizarre cult following....seriously? I saw an infommerical for this a few months ago and couldn't stop can watch it here:

2. A Japanese fire station burns down. A blaze broke out after a firefighter left a cooking stove burning as crew members left the station to respond to emergency calls. They plan to order-in dinner from now on....

3. A man tried to reclaim breast implants from his ex. Prosecutors say a spurned lover ambushed his ex-girlfriend and tried to cut out the breast implants he paid for by stabbing her. Apparently, he wanted to reclaim what was rightfully his.;_ylt=AtzcTQFquCB.xyUFxChu9djtiBIF

4. Two New Zealand prisoners who were handcuffed together as they fled a courthouse foiled their own getaway when they ran to opposite sides of a light pole, slammed into each other and fell to the ground. Jailers nabbed them as they struggled to their feet.;_ylt=Ajss7G9OXZnmQevUs1pdLmntiBIF

5. Robber has a really bad day. He was on foot as his getaway car was wrecked, and his rookie attempt at robbing a bank was thwarted by a set of locked doors. Looking for a place to hide, police say, he found himself inside the home of a frightened old woman. He didn't want to hurt the woman but ended up scaring her to death.
