Some good news

FOX News - Arava the disabled turtle is using her new set of wheels to get around in more ways than one. Officials at the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo say the 10-year-old spurred tortoise has begun mating since being fitted with a custom skateboard to overcome paralysis of her hind legs. The 55-pound turtle is unable to move herself forward with her front legs alone. So the zoo's staff built her a metal board with two wheels that can be strapped to her stomach. Arava arrived in Jerusalem a few months ago from a petting zoo in southern Israel with the unexplained handicap, and found no reptile romance.

MK - It's no surprise that the turtle was shown this kindness in Israel. The turtle is lucky it didn't end up over in Palestine, this is what [Warning - Graphic Nature] they'd probably have done to it. In other good news.

FOX News - An Afghan governor says at least six militants wearing vests packed with explosives tried to storm a main U.S. base in eastern Afghanistan and blew themselves up after being surrounded by U.S. forces. Arsallah Jamal, the governor of Khost province, says the militants failed to gain entry into Camp Salerno in Khost city, next to Pakistan's border. .... He says Afghan troops are reporting militants blowing themselves up before capture. A U.S. military spokesman confirms the attack and says there are no American casualties.

MK - It's always good news when jihadists blow themselves up but can't take anyone with them. Always good to hear of jihadists screwing up when putting their explosives together. Always good to hear of them doing stupid crap and getting themselves killed and not harming anyone else. Makes my day every time.
