  3. Massive fire and explosions at Russian military base in Crimea forces evacuation of 2000+ locals.
  4. You really want boil their brains, tell them the real story behind Andersen's tale of mermaids.

I have come to the conclusion that executions solve nothing, and are only an antiquated relic of a primitive desire for revenge which takes the easy way and hands over responsibility for revenge to other people.” - Albert Pierrepoint, Official Executioner in the UK During his career as Official Executioner, Pierrepoint was responsible for between 420 and 550 hangings including several Nazis after Nuremberg. The son and nephew of hangmen, he spent a large number of years engaged in the business and came to the above view after having to hang a regular who came into his pub. The man knew who Pierrepoint was, and what he did (it was an open secret) and yet still went on to commit murder.
  11. Canadian and Northern Irish parents living in the US at the time of the child's birth. Child is US citizen by birth, entitled to Canadian and Irish citizenship because of parentage and Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom as well as part of Ireland.
  12. Posting this here as I didn't know where else to post it. I found this article while searching for information about Fibonacci sequences in trees as I'm a scale modeller.
