But they're as likely to do it as the pope is likely to convert to islam. Pope Sylvester II came close to that after his visit to Córdoba.

Sven Moeschlin's, Klinik und Therapie der Vergiftungen states that deadly poisoning by Amanita Muscaria is exceptional (2% according to Habersaat).
However consumption of reheated leftovers of edable mushrooms, even if stored in a refrigidator can be very dangerous. Prepared mushroom dishes contain enough protein to be a good breeding ground for bacteria.
Before modern times people had a very limited knowledge of foodpoisoning. Many cases, like the death of Rodrigo Borgia (Pope Alexander VI) in 1503, which were attributed to deliberate poisoning, were probably a case of foodpoisoning.
The Egyptians used diorite for pounders to work hard stones like granite and quartzite. Diorite is a crystalline, granular rock consisting essentially of the minerals plagioclase felspar (white) and hornblende or augite (black or dark green); it may be either fine- or coarse-grained.

And just in time several viruses ("W32.Ramnit" and "Conficker") were detected at the German Gundremmingen B nuclear power station. It only affected the handling of nuclear waste. The reactor is safe. Nothing to see here.
In the 6th century AD the Roman script started to be used to write the version of English spoken at the time. But Latin does not have the W-sound. So that was written an VV, where V is the way the romans chiseled their U-sound.

Selling PGP-services is not punishable. Nevertheless is the owner of Ennetcomm detained on Tuesday. He is accused of laundering. According to the police he must have known that most of his clients were criminals who paid him with money originating from crime. By accepting that money for his services he is guilty of laundering, is the proposition of the public prosecutor. (my translation)
CDs should be OK, at least
The data on (audio)CDs are not compressed, but in reality almost all CDs develop defects - think scratches - which are in principle masked by error correction code which comes with every block of data. In that case the information can not be restored to the original form, i.e. the data on a pristine CD. So it becomes illegal under the proposed Burr-Feinstein bill.
In fact the U.S. Navy experimented with bat bombs, not cat bombs. Ten- to eleven-gram Mexican free-tailed bats carried a 17.5 gram napalm time bomb designed in 1943 by Louis Fieser.
Researchers planned to pack the bats into five-foot-tall steel bombshells the size of a Standard 500-pound bomb. Each shell was filled with circular steel trays about one and a half inches tall, subdivided into small rectangular bat-sized niches and fitted upside down one on top of the other. Hibernating bats with napalm bombs attached to their breasts with surgical clips -thought to simulate the teeth of a baby bat- were to be placed in each compartment. Timing and safety wires connected each bat to the tray above and to the compartment walls. Strings two- to three-inches long connected the trays. On release, a parachute deployed and a mechanical device jettisoned the casing. Trays fell to the bottom of their connecting strings like an accordion and released the timing wires. As the deployed bat bomb descended into warmer air, the bats were expected to wake up, wiggle or fall out of their cubicles, and fly away in the process removing the safety wires and arming the bombs. Each shell could carry 1,030 bats. A twin-engined B-25 could carry twenty-five shells: almost 26,000 individual bat bombs. A Del Mar, California, company owned by entertainer Bing Crosby and his brother Larry was contracted to manufacture the devices.

Like the old Start menu, when you wanted to stop the PC.
When I was a student we had Flexowriters - Yes folks, Flexowriters, make a typo today and find it tomorrow. - and offline telex machines. One night I was alone, playing with a telex. But how do you stop that noisy thing? Whatever I tried, nothing worked. Finally it turned out that the telex switched itself off when you did not touch it for a couple of minutes.

Or a Swan? Google Maps shows what looks like a swan (white, size 1.5 m) on the Hudson River near the Indian Point Energy Center. Definitely not a penguin.
Thousands of people are suing Donald Trump over the now-defunct Trump University. A massive marketing campaign, just like his presidential campaign, which a judge compared to selling snake oil. The trial is now scheduled for the summer and the judge has said he's not delaying it.
Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here? asked Alice. That depends a good deal on where you want to get to. said the Cheshire cat. I don't much care where -- said Alice. Then it doesn't matter which way you go. said the Cat. -- so long I get somewhere, Alice added as an explanation. Oh you're sure to do that, said the Cat, if you only walk long enough.

It's hard to imagine the enormous leap that was Windows 3.1
Unless of course you were an IRIS/AIX, X11/Motif user.
Amiga came before that. Graphical calculations line by line while the video was displayed - very clever. Never touched a Mac AFAIR. In 1986 my boss gave me a Torch XXX System V with TopDraw graphics - list price £ 7674 - to play with ....
Geenstijl would be delighted to publish the location of an arms cash - it is their business. Geenstijl is owned by the Telegraaf Media Groep. The Telegraaf tabloid is notorious in the Dutch printed media landscape and could during the later part of the German occupation (1944) be qualified as a pro-SS paper http://weblogs.nrc.nl/media/2009/10/14/was-de-telegraaf-fout-in-de-oorlog/.
One of their latest tricks is their attempt to destabilize the relation between the EU and the Ukraine http://www.reuters.com/article/us-dutch-ukraine-vote-idUSKCN0UN0HR20160109.

We will need dead horses for that.
In june 1941 the Nazis invaded the Soviet Union with over 600000 horses. Most of them died.
An unknown number of horses died during the battle of the Somme in 1916 with over 1 (one) million human casualties. And at least the German rations contained plenty of horse meat. Peter Hart, The Somme.
Umber reports the casus of a suicidal nurse who injected herself with with 27 grams of mercury, resulting in a small mercury lake in her right heart chamber. She lived many years thereafter and died of an unrelated cause.

Dutch "consumers" will between midnight 31/12 and 1 o'clock ignite on a buildup area of 2300 km² a large part of their fireworks on which they spend some 70 million Euros. That is except more than 45000 kilograms of fireworks confiscated by the national police force as illegal (like avalance mortars).
