Valentine’s Day is almost here, so where is the love? Self-love, love for others, love of things, love of power…. Surely one of those must be in here somewhere. Help me find it nah.

  1. A US man was caught on tape robbing a store. His approach: “Could you do me a favor? Empty the till for me please and put it right here. . I’m robbing you, sir…I’ve got kids that need to be fed, sir. . I really am sorry to have to do this.”
  2. Witches in Romanian will be jailed or fined for making wrong predictions.
  3. A TV channel in Hong Kong hopes to encourage men to cook by introducing a cooking show hosted by a naked woman.
  4. A US store has launched its Valentines Day promotion: customers are able to exchange their guns for sex toys. “You never know, maybe there will be someone who says, ‘I’ve got this gun that I could go rob a liquor store with, or maybe I can get me a blowup doll for Valentine’s Day, instead,” the store owner rationalized.
  5. An immigration officer in the UK tried to get rid of his wife by placing her on a terrorist watch list when she visited Pakistan 3 years ago. She spent those 3 years in Pakistan trying to get back to the UK, not understanding why they would not allow her into her homeland.
