    Yes, Min, despite its annoying format, there is some information there which is otherwise difficult or impossible to find. The full, tragic story of the electrocuted lad was new to me; though only sixteen, he had already fathered a child.

    We also learn of Arobieke’s careful stalking of his victims.

    His quiet manner and much-attested intelligence won over his most recent judge. Could this mark the end of the cartoon Aki? We shall see. :confused:

    It's quite a long article and fills in a lot of gaps.
    Somebody did their research.

    Wow. Reading through that takes some time, but it is pretty damned thorough.

    Darkly fascinating stuff. There can be no doubt in my mind that the intimidating behaviour listed in the 1980s and 90s is just plain wrong. The notion that stalking, obsessive record keeping and documenting of people's lives and famillies when targetting is effed up. I find it hard to believe that it isn't in some way sexually motivated, but any way that you look it that is just plain threatening behaviour.

    Becomig a modern meme or urban legend cannot condone behaviour like that. That the Sopa order has been removed seems wrong to me.

    What the hell would that taste like? Or is it named after the colour?

    It looks like a pretty amazing burger. A black bun (no doubt done with food colouring). Wow.
    But yeah, it's all been a cynical PR stunt. It worked.

    If it was a seafood restaurant they could have made a dedicated dish of mussels.

    Ouch. If this genuinely won via Twitter competition you'd think they'd have checked this better.

    But then again, you couldn't really complain 'we didn't know' when you've drawn a picture of a guy squeezing somebody's muscles...
