North Koreans Say There was a Magical Glow in the Sky the Day Kim Jong-Il Died

Kim Jong Il visits his birthplace.

That’s right, folks, for those of you who don’t understand the way North Korea’s hero worship for their fallen leader works, sources now say that a strong snowstorm paused and the sky glowed red above Mount Paektu just before the death of Kim Jong Il. Furthermore, volcanic Lake Chon had its ice crack violently. In the city of Hamhung, a Manchurian crane circled a statue of Kim’s father, Kim Il Sung, and then drooped its head before taking off.
These legends correspond with similar ones related to Kim Jong Il’s birth. He was supposedly born on Mount Paektu, and the rumor is that a double rainbow sprang across the sky when he came into the world.
Must have been a helluva guy, huh?

Rocker Jon Bon Jovi Not Dead — Latest Internet Hoax

Twitter blew up the last few days with another seemingly random internet hoax that spread like wildfire.  Jon Bon Jovi was rumored to have been discovered in his hotel room in a coma and subsequently rushed to the hospital where he died from cardiac arrest.  The cool thing about a Twitter hoax is that it wasn’t long before Bon Jovi himself heard the news of his own demise.  Bon Jovi immediately took to his own Twitter account to dispel the rumors, but not wanting to leave any room for more conspiracy theories, he came up with a crafty way to put the hoax to rest.  His Tweet featured him holding a handwritten sign with the date and time.  No word as of yet if the Illuminati might be trying to kill him, so stay tuned for that.
