@1 Taiwan’s new military uniforms are Halloween scary. Yikes! Link

@2 Received several emails from “Jesus” (from a dummy account) who insisted, “1900 – 1.6 Billion People; 2012 – 7.0 Billion People; 112 years – 5.4 Billion People. Solution – Stop Creating Children. The life you save just might be the one you don’t create.If you stop creating children you will stop creating birth defects.” I answered, “I guess that logically follows. Eliminating people would put cease to inane emails, too.”

@3 Long live the Anarchist Philatelist! Man sends letters with costumed DIY stamps featuring his own face all over the world (and nobody noticed for three years). Link

@4 The REAL Exorcism that inspired the classic film: Jesuit scholars gather in St Louis to remember case of boy ‘possessed’ by devil in 1949. Link

Please prefix comments with “@X” to indicate which story you’re commenting on. I should hardly need to say that a link does not necessarily imply endorsement.

    @2:”The life you save just might be the one you don’t create.” If you say it really fast three or four times, does it make sense then?
