Eugene Terreblanche, leader of the neo-Nazi party in South Africa, has been cut down by one of his own farmhands ending a career of political extremism, terrorism and violence. "South African neo-Nazi leader Eugene Terreblanche has been hacked to death in his sleep by two workers on his farm after what was believed to be a dispute over unpaid wages. Police arrived at the farm in Ventersdorp in the western Transvaal at 5pm yesterday and found Terreblanche, 69, on his bed with serious wounds to his head and body. They also found a knobkerrie and a panga – a machete used for chopping vegetation – abandoned nearby. Terreblanche died in hospital two hours later, South African media reported. Andre Visagie of the Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging, or Afrikaner Resistance Movement (AWB), told the website News24 that Terreblanche had been so badly beaten 'he did not look like Eugene any more'."

Does believing in true love make people act like jerks?
- Ghosting, or cutting off all contact suddenly with a romantic partner, is not nice.
- Growth-oriented people (who think relationships are made, not born) do not appreciate it.
