Various interesting things, in no particular order:

The United Nations has provided the most comprehensive look yet at the Somali pirates… but still don’t have any terribly useful ideas on what to do about them.

The U.S. Marine Corps has labeled the Federation of American Scientists a “front company” that is “trying to expose National Security information”. Ah, Jarheads; tough and brave, yes. Bright, not necessarily so much so…

Some interesting allegations have emerged about the Syrian “nuclear reactor” supposedly bombed by Israel back in 2007. Might not be true, but would probably make a great movie. 🙂

Also from Israel, helpful advice: Looking to dodge the draft? Don’t get caught kissing. Big Brother is watching you… and he’s a voyeur.

It’s been a bad year so far for utility companies whose manholes keep blowing up. As an engineer in the last-linked story puts it, “The system is reliable until something goes wrong.” Bah, who says there’s anything wrong with the country’s infrastructure?

And, last but not least, a story with a happy ending: “Student rediscovers secret bunker from TV show.”
