Concerned motorists rushing to a car that had flipped over near Portland, Oregon came across a scene that made them fear the worse, according to KGW News. Covered in blood with their clothes ripped, the passengers in the vehicle looked as if they had sustained serious injuries in the accident.

In some African cities, heroin addicts are injecting other users’ blood. But is such a rare phenomenon worth reporting on?
Phew, thank goodness for those budget deficits, eh. It means we weren’t the only ones to make a godawful mess of the economy. The politicians have also been screwing things up. It wasn’t all our fault after all. That, at least, appears to be the message from the British Bankers Association’s annual shindig in the City of London today.

It didn’t get the best reception from readers. “Is your life vacuous Mr Rice?”, “This is probably the worst thing I have ever read” and “What absolute rubbish” were [...]
The European Champions Spain have become the World Champions for the first time in their first final-and deserved it. They were the better side with better players.
Holland did well to reach the final and had a physical and fouling game plan to stop the Spanish. Arjen Robben still had two great chances to [...]
Good news today from the High Court, where rich dude Noel Carroll lost his bid to bring a legal challenge over Boris Johnson’s long-awaited cycle hire scheme.
