London is totally fucked up tonight. [Dec. 22nd, 2009|06:38 am]
Sarah
Cars skidding on ice, buses slow, crowds of Londoners huddled frustratedly at bus stops. Good luck getting home tonight (try pulling away in 3rd gear, ye drivers...).

"Makes me wonder how easy it would be for social order to break down if all it takes to gridlock the city is for a little rain and snow to mix."

Kim Peek, the original Rain Man, dies [Dec. 22nd, 2009|09:15 pm]

Kim Peek, the autistic savant who inspired the Oscar-winning film Rain Man, has died, aged 58.

Mr Peek's father Fran said that his son had suffered a major heart attack on Saturday and was pronounced dead at a hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah, the town where he had spent his life.

Mr Peek was probably the world's most famous savant. Described as a confounding mixture of disability and genius, his astonishing ability to retain knowledge inspired the writer Barry Morrow to write Rain Man, the 1988 movie starring Dustin Hoffman that won four Academy Awards.

No, this isn't an Onion article.

Although, with there only being one left, the species wasn't going anywhere anyway. o.O
