The complete, true story of Charlie Charlie, the ‘demonic’ teen game overtaking the Internet

http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-intersect/wp/2015/05/26/the-complete-true-story-of-charlie-charlie-the-demonic-teen-game-overtaking-the-internet/

If you are one of those crotchety people who believe the kids these days are somehow less inspired than generations before, then I come bearing new evidence: Even their superstitions are lamer than ours!

“Charlie Charlie,” a game/Internet urban legend of sudden and inexplicable popularity, surged to the top of the global social media charts this weekend after kicking around on the Spanish-language Internet for much of eternity. As of this writing, #CharlieCharlieChallenge has been tweeted more than 1.6 million times. More people are Googling “Charlie Charlie” than virtually any other news event.

What’s all this about?! Below, our no-nonsense explainer for the old/unimpressed.

How do you play Charlie Charlie?

Simple! You could, if you wanted, even do it at your desk.

Johnny Depp could face up to 10 years in prison for dog smuggling

http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/people/2015/05/26/johnny-depp-prison-australia-dog-smuggling/27961409/

Megastar Johnny Depp could face up to a decade in prison or a maximum $340,000 fine for illegally bringing his two dogs into Australia earlier this month, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

At a Senate committee hearing in Australia it was also discovered that Depp's pilot could face up to two years in prison, according to the Herald.

The Yorkshire terriers were flown back to the United States earlier this month after Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce threatened to put the two dogs--Pistol and Boo--down.

Joyce accused Depp of smuggling his dogs on his private jet when he returned to Australia in April to continue filming Pirates of the Caribbean.

Obama Plans New Rule to Limit Water Pollution

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/23/us/politics/obama-set-to-strengthen-federal-role-in-clean-water-regulation.html

The Obama administration is expected in the coming days to announce a major clean water regulation that would restore the federal government’s authority to limit pollution in the nation’s rivers, lakes, streams and wetlands.

Environmentalists have praised the new rule, calling it an important step that would lead to significantly cleaner natural bodies of water and healthier drinking water.

But it has attracted fierce opposition from several business interests, including farmers, property developers, fertilizer and pesticide makers, oil and gas producers and a national association of golf course owners. Opponents contend that the rule would stifle economic growth and intrude on property owners’ rights.

Republicans in Congress point to the rule as another example of what they call executive overreach by the Obama administration. Already, they are advancing legislation on Capitol Hill meant to block or delay the rule.

B.B. King memorial more cheers than tears in Las Vegas

http://news.yahoo.com/b-b-king-viewing-draws-more-1-000-071317198.html

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A standing ovation for B.B. King and more cheers than tears marked a family-and-friends memorial of the late blues great's life and legacy Saturday in Las Vegas.

"B.B. was energetic, Amen?" Pastor Pamela Myrtis Mason said to open the service that drew more than 350 to the Palm Mortuary chapel.

"Amen," they said.

King's closed casket lay framed by an array of floral arrangements, two of his guitars named Lucille and a tapestry showing him in eyes-clenched reverie picking a note from a section of the guitar frets dubbed by followers the "B.B. King Box."

The President handled it like a pro

Well, someone’s not very happy about meeting President Obama.

A toddler visiting the White House in April for Passover dinner had a fit and threw herself down on the Red Room’s carpet – right at Obama’s feet.

The Commander-in-Chief handled it like a pro, gamely mugging for the camera as young Claudia Moser, daughter of journalist Laura Moser, wailed in front of him.

question about residential construction in the past versus now

Through the years, I've gotten the impression that residential home construction quality, in general, has gone down. I have no hard data on that and I've never been in the industry. I know codes in certain locations (like Miami for hurricanes or California for earthquakes) have gone up.

Is this just urban legend-ish stuff I've been exposed to, or is there some truth to that ? Thanks for your patience with my sincere question.

EXCLUSIVE: Executed with point blank shots to the head, and one killed in front of his son - how eight Cossacks died in Waco breastaurant bloodbath after months of bitter gang rivalry and a razed clubhouse

A biker was shot dead at point blank range with two bullets to the head in front of his son during the Waco gang bloodbath.

Daniel Boyett, 44, was murdered after he fell to the ground during the height of the gun battle as his fellow biker son looked on unable to help him.

The chilling detail is disclosed as Daily Mail Online can reveal a series of new developments in the deaths of nine bikers at a Waco 'breastaurant' last weekend which include:

Eight of the dead were Cossacks and only one was a Bandido - and the brawl happened on what was seen as Cossack territory;
