Happy Thursday M&Ms. For those of you in the SoCal area don't forget about the LA Moron meetup this Saturday.

So Which Countries Take in Refugees?
Here's a chart showing the number of refugees per 1000 inhabitants that each country takes in. Surprisingly the US is rather low - Canada and the UK take in almost 5x as many refugees proportionately. And Sweden and Norway accept almost 10x as many refugees which explains some of the social problems they have. There's probably an optimal level of immigration where immigrants aren't so few that they're completely isolated but not so numerous that they can retreat to their native language-speaking ethnic neighborhoods.

The $8 Million Dollar Car
The Maybach Exelero is a one-of-a kind, hand built, 700 horsepower car that was originally commission by the Fulga Tire Company and cost $8 million dollars to build. It's 19 feet long, has 23 inch wheels and a gas mileage of 2.5 mpg at full throttle. So I hope it has a pretty large gas tank or you'll spend most of your time showing it off at gas stations.

Ok I think I actually remember seeing this ad as a little kid. Of course I still don't consider fig newtons to be actual legal cookies - at best they're some kind of fruit pie thingy.

Man plants landmines in yard to keep out thieves, kids
