An Australian man named Colin Campbell Ross was pardoned, only, 86 years after being executed by hanging to death in 1922. He was charged with murder and rape of a young girl and dumping her body in an alley in 1921. But only recently, new tests found evidence against him was flawed – which led to him being to be acquitted of the crime.
“This really is a tragic case where a miscarriage of justice has resulted in a man being hanged,” Victoria’s Attorney-General Rob Hulls said on Tuesday. “This pardon is a recognition that there are serious doubts about Mr Ross’s conviction for murder.” Australia is a strong opponent of the death penalty, with the last hanging taking place in Melbourne in 1967 when petty criminal Ronald Ryan was executed for his involvement in a prison escape, during which a prison guard was shot dead.

Swedish artist Erik Nordenankar claims his self portrait drawing is the world’s biggest drawing. It was done using a GPS device stuffed inside a briefcase which he sent around the globe via DHL, with exact co-ordinates to draw the figure. When the package returned after 55-day journey around the world, he downloaded the GPS’s route to produce the gigantic drawing which is composed of a single 110,00km long line that passes through six continents and 62 countries.
“In order to make the drawing that I wanted, I developed a GPS device with extended tracklog and battery time,” Nordenankar claims. As “evidence” of his achievement he has posted the picture, his complete delivery instructions to DHL, two photos of his GPS suitcase and a photo of a wad of DHL delivery notes onto his website.
