Four girls accuse a taxi driver of rape. Driver pulls out tape proving he didn't.

It's amazing what some people are capable of. If he didn't have that tape, his life would have been ruined for sure.

Looks like the guy decided to press charges and sue them. Good for him.

Emails from Jerks

A site dedicated to the collection of emails that really piss people off on craigslist. If you have a good sense of humor and some free time, check it out. Here's a preview:

Original ad:
litter of 6 kittens up for adoption! they are all 3 weeks old and are looking for a good home. contact if interested.
From Mike Hunt to *********@***********.org


I am interested in taking all six kittens off of your hands. How much do you want for them?


From Shannon ******* to Me


Are you going to take care of all of these kittens? I want to make sure they all find a good home, and was expecting to sell them one at a time. Are you able to house all six of them?

From Mike Hunt to Shannon *******


To be honest, I own a pet Bengal Tiger and he is on a strict diet of cats. I usually feed him one cat every couple of days, so this litter should hold him over for a while. Don't worry though, I'll take good care of the kittens until I feed them to him.


From Shannon ******* to Me

That is horrible! You will not get a single kitten from me. I really hope you are not serious.

From Mike Hunt to Shannon *******


I was kidding. I seriously need all six kittens though. Disregard anything I said about a tiger.

From Shannon ******* to Me


Pixar grants girl's dying wish to see 'Up'

A girl diagnosed with a rare form of cancer receives a private screening of the Pixar Disney movie Up, which was only in theaters at the time. Good deed and good publicity. 

Best Ad Banner You Will Ever See

Normally, I'm not one for internet ads. In fact, it just so happens I use ADP for Firefox so I don't have to see popups for dating websites or something equally as worthless. However, if there were ever to be an award for cleverest ad then I would tip my hat off to this one right here. Possibly the only ad banner I can keep clicking without some ulterior motive. One of the few examples of brilliant marketing.
