“Once upon a time, I thought chocolate and raspberry was the nastiest combination in existence. But then one day I saw the light and feel madly in love with chocolate and raspberry. Not just kind of like but full on love. I found myself buying chocolate and raspberry candy which a week ago would have been unheard of. Whenever I would see the combination I would think to myself, ‘eewww raspberry and chocolate?! Who eats that stuff?’ Yeah that would be me who eats that stuff now. So if that combination is going to find it’s way into my desserts on my blog, you know it’s going to take some form of candy dessert. Oh my chocolate and raspberry stars could I eat this entire batch of brownies. Chopped up dark chocolate raspberry squares are thrown into the batter and mixed in and then bigger chocolate raspberry squares are placed on top. It’s pure chocolate raspberry overload and thankfully I’m happy with that idea now.” w/ photos
“Riots bring out the worst in human beings, and often occur in reaction to a perceived grievance, or out of dissent. Most riots rely on killing, damage to property, raping, looting and widespread destruction to get their point across. While some might argue that it is the only way to bring about a change, in reality it takes a toll on the society. [Here] are some of the worst riots of all time.” w/ photos

“Sperm bank Cyros has started turning away redhead donors as there is little demand, it has been reported. Despite a surge in demand for sperm donors, the only place where sperm donors with red hair are in demand is Ireland, where supplies are selling ‘like hot cakes’, Cryos director Ole Schou told Danish newspaper Ekstrabladet. He said: ‘I do not think you chose a redhead, unless the partner – for example, the sterile male – has red hair, or because the lone woman has a preference for redheads. And that’s perhaps not so many, especially in the latter case.’ Mr Schou added the genes in highest demand are those that will give a child brown hair or brown eyes. Cryos’ stores are now at capacity, and there is a long list of about 600 people who wish to become donors.” w/ photo
“A thief in Spain who stole a diamond from a British woman – and then swallowed it – was caught when police forced him to undergo an X-ray. The theft happened when two British women entered a restaurant in Marbella and one of them left her handbag on the floor, reports the BBC. “Two well-dressed men came in, one sitting at the bar and the other next to the woman,” a police spokesman said. When the men left, the woman discovered her handbag, containing valuables including a pendant with a $13,000 diamond and nearly $2,759 in cash, had disappeared. Hours later, police stopped a car at a routine checkpoint and found the four occupants had criminal records. Inside the vehicle they also discovered a handbag as well as valuables and cash, which they later identified as belonging to the British woman. All that was missing was the diamond. “During the operation, officers noticed one of the men putting his hand to his mouth,” police said. “This gesture and the fact that they had found the pendant without the diamond made the police think he may have swallowed it.” w/ photo
