Feeling down? Discouraged? Unhappy?

May I suggest a quck look at the U.K.'s Mail Online? It has a genius for publishing stories about the most terrible, horrific--almost unimagineably horrible--occurences in life. Here are the headlines from some of its stories for just one day. (Guaranteed to make you feel better about your petty problems or your money back.)
