Indonesian police got an entire neighbourhood high (accidentally) after burning a 3.3-ton pile of cannabis just outside their office.

Residents around West Jakarta were all intoxicated after the fumes created a giant cloud of smoke which then dispersed around the local area.

Loads of people then reported to the police with headaches and feeling dizzy, not realising they were in fact high as a kite.

This Indonesian dentist is well aware of the fact that dental drills can be a little bit... err... intimidating. So, he created a drill that, instead of making the typical whirring and buzzing noises a drill makes, plays audio of the patient's favorite songs from an MP3 player. Nothing like a little Gangnam Style to ease the nervousness of having a whizzing metal object shoved into your mouth (no, don't even go there...).

This week, following President Barack Obama's announcement that he is in favor of gay marriage in the United States, Sun Media divvied up a nice little infographic showing the varying legal stances toward gay marriage in the Africa and Asia. Judging by the end result, nary a one Sun Media employee has ever looked at a world atlas.

Let's help them out, though:

1) That is not Saudi Arabia, it's Sudan. 2) That is not Sudan, it's Saudi Arabia. 3) Sudan is no longer a single country. 4) That is not Iran, it's the United Arab Emirates and/or Oman. 5) That is not Malaysia, it's the island of Sumatra, which is a part of Indonesia. 6) That is not China, it's Russia (really?). 7) That is not Uganda, it's Antarctica (REALLY?).

Clearly, somebody needs to rethink their cultural standards.
