Good week, Bad week

Good week for: Eating your broccoli, Alternative fuel sources, Ridiculous getups; Bad week for: A fox hunter in Belarus, Governating, Brotherly love

Good week for:

Eating your broccoli, after British researchers found that eating five more portions of fruit and vegetables a day raises carot­enoid levels and gives skin a golden tone, making people look healthier and more attractive.

Alternative fuel sources, after a group of Austrian undertakers said they planned to funnel the excess heat generated by the crematorium next door into their new headquarters, so as not to waste energy.

Ridiculous getups, after Forbes projected that Lady Gaga would make $100 million in 2011.

Bad week for:

A fox hunter in Belarus, who was shot in the leg by his wounded prey. The hunter approached the fox to finish it off with the butt of his rifle, authorities said, but in the ensuing struggle, the fox pulled the trigger with its paw.

Governating, after former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzen­egger calculated that he lost $200 million in box-office receipts by serving in government instead of making movies. “It was more than worth it,” Arnold added.

Brotherly love, after Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley said in his inaugural address that “anybody here today who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior, you’re not my brother and you’re not my sister.” As an olive branch to non-Christians, Bentley added, “I want to be your brother,” and that the rest was up to them.
