Here's a random assortment of things I've been meaning to post about the past couple days:

News Story: Newborn dies, mother found dead in crawl space; woman charged

"A 28-year-old Oregon woman has been charged with murder after the body of a new mother was found in the crawl space of her home.

Rescue crews first went to Korena Roberts' home in Washington County on Friday in response to a call of a newborn in distress. They found Roberts' boyfriend unsuccessfully trying to revive the baby using first-aid techniques.

Roberts told deputies the baby was hers, the county sheriff's office said. Medics noticed a lot of blood at the home, and sent Roberts and the baby to a hospital."

I don't know about you, but this picture scares the bejesus out of me:

Police released a photo of Korena Roberts, who is charged with murder.

And if that didn't scare you, try setting it as your background and tiling it.
You'll have nightmares for weeks.

Onion article: But If We Started Dating It Would Ruin Our Friendship Where I Ask You To Do Things And You Do Them

One of those, it's funny because it's true, but I still do it anyway kind of things...
Read the whole articles, it's not long. Here are some excerpts to entice you:

"I really like you. I do. You're so nice, and sweet, and you listen to all my problems and respond with the appropriate compliments. But, well, I don't really see a relationship in our future. It would be terrible if we let sex destroy this great friendship we have where I get everything I want and you get nothing you want. Don't you think?

I knew you would understand. You always do."

"Oh, before I forget, my mom says hi.

Anyway, you would totally hate me as your girlfriend. I'd be all needy and dramatic and slowly growing to love you. If I was your girlfriend, I would never be able to tell you all about the other asshole guys I date and pretend I don't see how much it crushes you. Let's never lose that. That's what makes us us."
