Today in Extraordinarily Odd

A Californian judge has ruled that a financial transaction written in actual blood is void. Stephen Son owed Kim Jin-soo 140,000 dollars and they wrote the contract out in blood while having a pleasant meal in a restaurant. Despite the written agreement, the judge quoted Nietzsche as he ruled that the blood pact was not binding. "Blood is the worst of all testimonies to the truth," he said.

While it’s not ok to smoke marijuana in Indonesia, it is ok to cook with it according to the nation’s government.

Wow, can I have another serving of Indonesian Slacker Beef? [source]
