Meth is so common in North Korea that suited elites in Pyongyang restaurants offer each other a “nose” after dinner, the middle classes take it as a cold cure or remedy for back pain, and the poor take it to ease the emptiness in their stomach.
North Korean meth is the bomb—at least, according to US officials who tested two batches last year. The packages of sharp, ice-like crystals measured 98 percent and 96 percent for purity, respectively. According to an indictment against the suppliers, who were arrested in 2013, the drug was so pure that “people in New York, they went crazy… the places that we put it in the States, New York… Boston, all these places, I mean, they went crazy.”
A cat named Toldo visited his deceased owner’s grave every day for over a year leaving small presents at the grave. The gifts usually consisted of leaves, sticks, twigs, plastic cups or paper towels.
Ada told Corriere Fiorentino that no one noticed the cat’s behavior when he followed Iozzelli’s funeral procession until later when he began to make his regular trips to the cemetery, bringing little sprigs and gifts to the gravestone. “Sometimes he comes with me and sometimes he goes on his own,” Ada added.
The day after the funeral, they found a sprig of acacia on the grave, then later that evening, they saw Toldo standing guard at the grave. The story quickly spread out in the village. Many people also witnessed it. “The whole town knows about him now,” Ada said.

In 1980, Detroit gave Saddam Hussein a key to the city out of recognition of donations he made to local churches.
Hussein’s ties to the Motor City started in 1979 after Rev. Jacob Yasso of Chaldean Sacred Heart, a local school, congratulated the soon-to-be-dictator on his presidential win. Hussein thanked Yasso for his support by donating $250,000 to the school.
A year later, in 1980, the city awarded Hussein the key to the city. Yasso made a special trip to Baghdad to present the ruler with his award. Hussein ended up giving Yasso another $200,000 for more improvements to the school.
This was all possible because back in the 1980s the U.S. and the Hussein regime were allies against Iran. Tensions in the region threatened to throttle U.S. oil providers along the Persian Gulf. The U.S. responded to these threats by arming Hussein’s regime.

A man trapped in a coma for 12 years was aware of everything. His hatred of Barney reruns constantly playing helped him to regain control of his mind.
“I cannot even express to you how much I hated Barney,” Martin says.
Since all the world thought Martin was a vegetable, at the special care center where he spent his days he was often in front of the TV watching reruns of the children’s cartoon hour after hour, day after day.
Then one day, he decided he’d had enough. He wanted to gain some small measure of control over his day. So he figured out how to tell time by how the sun moved across a room. That was the start.
