A neo-Nazi demonstration in the German town of Freiburg was thwarted by the idiocy of its own organizers, who boarded a train to the wrong city. Members of the National Democratic Party of Germany (NPD), a neo-Nazi group mostly known for referring to Obama’s inauguration as an “African conquest” of the White House, were on their way to Freiburg for a demonstration in support of a woman who was denied permission to take a qualifying exam for public management based on her association with the NPD.


Apparently, the demonstrators were about to board a train that was already occupied by a far-left group known for making sport of attacking neo-Nazis and neo-Nazi supporters. Police officers, in an effort to avoid a confrontation, redirected the neo-Nazis to an alternate train on another platform. Instead, the demonstrators stayed on the platform and awaited the next train, not bothering to check the destination city. The train took them south, to the city of Mannheim. The neo-Nazis are not owning up to their stupid mistake.

“I don’t know how it happened, but the NPD phoned us up and said they’re not coming, and that they’re on a train to Mannheim,” said police spokesperson Dirk Klose to the Guardian. “The NPD is now saying they went to Mannheim deliberately.”

We often dismiss our dreams as nonsensical dispatches from the mind while we're deep asleep. But recent research proves that our dreams can definitely affect our waking lives.

People often dream about their significant others and studies show it actually affects how we behave towads them the next day.

"A lot of people don't pay attention to their dreams and are unaware of the impact they have on their state of mind," said Dylan Selterman, psychology lecturer at the University of Maryland, says according to The Huffington Post. "Now we have evidence that there is this association."

It's fun to go to a party, talk to strangers, and try to guess where they're from just by their accents and use of language. It's called 'soda' on the East Coast and 'pop' in the Midwest, right? Well, it looks like a new study has been able to determine where a Humpback whale has been and who he's been hanging out with during his awesome travels just from his song.
