According to Archbishop Robert Zollitsch, head of the German Catholic Church he would have been. The Son of God would have retweeted, liked and pinned his love for you apparently. The Archbishop said nothing about whether Jesus Christ would have used Google plus or not.
What’s worse that someone who thought the world was going to end last week? A tourist who thought the world was going to end.

The Kiffness, local electronica band that are following in Goldfish’s footsteps have released a new music video, and it’s a stonker. It’s all about Bobo who goes on a moon safari, and takes a 3-iron with.
Yeah, that’s right. Our very own Blade Runner took on a horse – that’s four legs against NONE – and dominated. The race took place in Qatar as part of an effort to promote disability sport and fight discrimination in the region.

Terroir. It’s time we had a chat about it. Is it complete marketing hogwash? Is it the holy grail of fine wine making, so, in fact, total hogwash? Is it a real thing that winemakers should strive toward? Wait, hold on Harry, wtf is terroir.
For reasons that are not altogether clear, a group of New Zealanders have spent eight weeks teaching two abandoned dogs to drive. The ultimate tast is to have a dog drive a Mini Clubman around a track without human help.
Julia Gillard is a pretty awesome prime minister. The Aussie PM has been chased by a violent mob and delivered an epic rant against the opposition leader calling him a misogynist. That was all this year, and now the PM has confirmed the Mayans are right and the world is coming to an end.

The Mexican drug cartels are more than just gangs. They are a combination of organised crime and military – even if a rather undisciplined one. It’s the mafia with radio towers, RPG’s and armored vehicles. They are extremely badass; in the most horrible and corrupt way possible.
