- “High-Elf” Attacks Car with Machete in Portland, Oregon
Konrad Bass, warrior of Middle Earth, explained that he is a “high-elf engaged in battle with the evil Morgoth.” As Melkor, Morgoth could take any form, but after turning to the darkness, Morgoth usually took on the appearance of a “dark lord,” leading many to suspect that the red BMW, though a machine of Mordor, was not in fact Morgoth.

- Disabled students could be 'shut out' by government cuts
Some of the support I got through the Disabled Students Allowance, particularly the PDA it got me, were a real help in getting myself organised, actually managing to make all the things I was supposed to, etc. I think I'd've had a much harder time without them.

It's about spiders, but no photos (one non-autoplaying video though). Some are bold hunters, some timid nurturers. The latter 'eventually liquefy their own bodies to nourish the next generation', so they're hardcore childminders!
