    Please refrain from posting anything other than news/news articles here. Thanks =)

    Since there seems to be a lot of threads/posts of random/interesting news articles about events happening around the world, I decided to make a thread for ALL of it to be filtered into. We will be able to lower spam threads/repetitive ones as well as create a nice place for people to catch up on interesting topics and news on what's happening around the world.

    Pro Forum Tip: Use spoilers to keep things organized and easy to thumb through :wink:

    Just copy and paste my example below (and remove any spacing, mine's there just so it doesn't make itself a spoiler):

    [ spoiler="Show"]Insert article here[/spoiler ]


    Here's a very interesting video and article to get us started :cool:

      So instead of things being able to go in the No Count, I now have to search an entire thread and sift through what are comments and what are news articles instead of being able to find individual articles easily?

      I'm on board. :cool:

        Should have a link to the Source(s) too, IMO.

        Added, thanks for mentioning Ray, I actually just forgot to post, was too occupied by fixing the double spoiler problem. Will look for first one's source at a later time.

        From here on, everybody try to refrain from posting non-news to keep the thread clean, and so we don't piss off @McKay, Mmkay?

        Thanks all.

        The Most Dangerous Cities In America (Top 5)

        As a Michigan resident, and living within an hour of BOTH of the most dangerous cities in America, it's extremely disappointing to see what these places have become. Flint and Detroit, Michigan, both have been major automotive cities that thrived off of the auto-industry, but now they just sit and rot, ridden with foreclosed homes and bankrupt businesses. When I go to skate at a great ice-rink in the middle of Detroit (obviously gated w/ security), while you drive through there, it's so depressing to see the disaster that the city has turned into.
