I have to say that including an elderly woman who was run over by her own car in a list of "Weird News" seems very insensitive. I get the stolen cookies and other things, but a tragic death?

I have to agree. As I was reading down the list I was shocked that there was a death reported in this category. I'm sure her family and friends would not approve. Every life has value and should be treated as such. Poor choice of where to include this story.

Youtube has completely removed Gangnam Style Music Video from it’s All Time Most Liked Chart without any explanation. Let’s sign a petition to bring Gangnam Style MV back in the Youtube Chart again! http://WhatHappenedToGangnamStyle.com/
