Well… Not in the best mood this evening. But there are some nice stories scattered among the disastrous state of the world. We begin with this from Yahoo News:
The man “was in possession of his bag when he left the restaurant,” but then he “fell asleep on the street,” one of his bosses told a news conference.

It’s unlikely that one Japanese man will join his colleagues for after-work drinks again following their last night out, when officials said he lost a USB stick containing the personal data of nearly a half-million people.
The man, who has not been named, transferred the data Tuesday and then went to a restaurant with three of his colleagues at Biprogy Inc., Yuji Takeuchi, the president of the company’s Kansai branch, told a news conference Friday.
From The Guardian:
5.9-magnitude earthquake leaves children buried under rubble and villages destroyed in already impoverished country
Sitting on a hill overlooking the remote Gayan district, Abdullah Abed pointed towards several freshly dug graves. “They screamed for help,” he said of his son Farhadullah, 10, and daughter Basrina, 18. “We tried to save them but by the time we pulled them out of the rubble, their voices had gone quiet.”
Today they lie buried beside 10 other family members lost in the 5.9-magnitude earthquake that struck eastern Afghanistan in the early hours of Wednesday. An estimated 250 people have died in the hard-hit district, many of them now buried next to Abed’s children, among the more than 1,150 people feared dead and 1,500 injured across Afghanistan’s eastern Paktika and Khost provinces. It was Afghanistan’s deadliest quake in two decades.
