  • Death From Above
    On December 16, 1960, two airliners collided above New York City, raining flaming debris, cargo, and scores of bodies down on the boroughs on Brooklyn and Staten Island. Fifty years later, the devastation of that day — caught by LIFE photographers in the hours after the disaster — still shocks.

  • “I understand this is very difficult,” Malik said before explaining that Samuel would have to ingest a small amount of the fecal matter to keep “the symptoms from setting in.” Malik added, “I understand, sir, that this is unusual, but you just have to look at this, you know, like it’s a life and death matter.”

    Samuel then asked, “How do I know that this isn’t like a fucking prank or something?” When Malik assured him it was “not a joking matter,” Samuel said, “Alright.”

  • According to Reedsburg police, an investigation was launched when a woman told detectives that Carr performed two gynecological exams on her under false pretenses.

    Investigators say Carr insisted that a doctor had instructed him to perform the service – telling the woman he was experienced in these type of examinations.

    Carr admitted to creating emails – posing as the doctor, which were then sent to the woman in attempt to validate his claim. The ruse apparently worked when Carr followed through with the exam on Dec. 8.

    Carr later told investigators that performing the examinations gave him a sexual thrill.

  • Funeral home owner Allen Baumgardner had held onto the coffin since Oswald’s body was dug up in 1981 in an effort to put to rest conspiracy theories that he really wasn’t buried in his grave. After the body was identified through dental records, it was returned to Rose Hill Memorial Burial Park in Fort Worth, Texas.
  • Among the many varied traditions of peoples all over the world, throwing 23,096 stuffed animals onto a hockey rink has go to be one of the two or three dumbest. But it looks pretty impressive.
  • But Williams is among a small cadre of scholars from across the world pushing the rather contentious idea that some suicide bombers may in fact be suicidal. At the forefront is the University of Alabama’s Adam Lankford, who recently published an analysis of suicide terrorism in the journal Aggression and Violent Behavior. Lankford cites Israeli scholars who interviewed would-be Palestinian suicide bombers. These scholars found that 40 percent of the terrorists showed suicidal tendencies; 13 percent had made previous suicide attempts, unrelated to terrorism. Lankford finds Palestinian and Chechen terrorists who are financially insolvent, recently divorced, or in debilitating health in the months prior to their attacks. A 9/11 hijacker, in his final note to his wife, describing how ashamed he is to have never lived up to her expectations. Terrorist recruiters admitting they look for the “sad guys” for martyrdom.

  • Just in time for Christmas, a new neuromarketing study offers a boost for good ol’ fashioned American capitalism: it turns out that buying expensive things that don’t fit in with your current home decor or wardrobe leads to more shopping binges.
  • The decision by the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is one in a string of court decisions boosting Americans’ privacy in the digital age — rulings the government fought against. The most significant and recent decision came Tuesday, when a different federal appeals court said for the first time the government must obtain a court warrant for an internet service provider to grant the authorities access to a suspect’s e-mail.
  • London’s top police officer says he is considering banning student marches in the wake of violent flare-ups at protests opposing a massive increase in university tuition fees.

    The move has prompted some observers to declare that Britain may be headed towards “martial law” as police push back against angry youth who find they can no longer afford an education, at a time when jobs openings are rare.

  • The Desoto player was given a technical foul and ejected from the game. Upset with his ejection, the Desoto player pushed the referee, grabbed him and threw him to the ground.
  • Suppose the unthinkable happened, and terrorists struck New York or another big city with an atom bomb. What should people there do? The government has a surprising new message: Do not flee. Get inside any stable building and don’t come out till officials say it’s safe.
  • The plotters decided to trigger their bomb in Los Angeles during the morning rush, at a metro station a stone’s throw from Universal Studios and the set where Steven Spielberg filmed scenes from “War of the Worlds.”

    This was no ordinary explosive. It was a 10-kiloton nuclear device packing roughly the destructive force of the Hiroshima bomb. A blast of that magnitude could engulf 50,000 to 150,000 people and reduce parts of L.A., Hollywood and Studio City — the historical heart of the movie industry — to radioactive rubble.

  • “Remember that time in 1989 when Pee Wee Herman was on the Oscars, then he got attacked by ED-209 so he flew up over the audience and then Robocop showed up and saved him with his laser gun?”

  • A usually staid weekly Papal audience was spiced up this week with an acrobatic performance by a troupe of topless men.

The Pope looked on as the men hoisted each other into the air, one on top of the other, three high.
  • As American commanders meet this week for the Afghanistan review, Obama is hiring military contractors at a rate that would make Bush blush.
  • Angie Sanselmente Valencia is a stunning young lingerie model who, authorities believe, is also the leader of the one of the world’s largest drug gangs.

    As the Telegraph reports, an international arrest warrant has been issued for 30-year-old Valencia, who is believed to be on the run in either Mexico or Argentina.

    Bringing a little glamor to the world of smuggling, Valencia is said to have recruited beautiful models to smuggle the drugs from South America to Europe. According to the Sun, Valencia has described the women working for her as “unsuspicious, beautiful angels.” Authorities caught on to Valencia after one of these ‘angels’ was busted at an airport in Buenos Aires with 55kg of coke last month and decided to talk to authorities.

    The entrepreneurial Valencia had apparently been dating a notorious Mexican drug lord known as “The Monster,” but had broken up with him last year in order to start her own drug-smuggling operation.
