Kim Jong Il dead

You've probably heard that North Korea's leader Kim Jong-il died from a heart attack. And now his son Kim Jong-un is described as the "Great Successor". Needless to say it's been a bad year for dictators. Guess we'll just have to wait and see how things turns out whit his son.

Look at the reaction to his death. Perhaps the weeping is mandatory?

Christopher Hitchens dead

The writer and critic Christopher Hitchens passed away yesterday (December 15th) at the age of 62. He was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in 2010. He's been a columnist for Vanity Fair since 1992 and written "God is not great: How religion poisons everything." and his own memoir "Hitch-22". 

I found Hitchens to be an inspiring person that had a lot of interesting ideas and thoughts and I'm really sad that he passed away. Haven't read his memoir but think that I'm going to buy it and read it when I got the time. Let me know what you think of his death in the comments.

Symphony of Science

Neil deGrasse Tyson
Don't know what you think about science but I think it's pretty cool. Melodysheep who produces the Symphony of Science songs (You might've seen A Glorious Dawn on youtube) just released a new one (actually ~3 weeks ago about but still) called 'Onward to the edge' featuring Neil deGrasse Tyson among others. If you don't know who Neil deGrasse Tyson is you might recognize him from this meme.

Anyway if you haven't seen it I think it's at least worth to check out since they're pretty cool and well made.
