Oscar Pistorius: South Africa gears up for its 'trial of the century'
(CNN) -- He was one of South Africa's favorite sons, an amputee track star who defied all the odds and sprinted into the hearts of millions during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. She was a staggering beauty with the brains to match, a law graduate and model whose star was on the rise.

Bringing this over from the other thread as it's closing now;
'Expert witness for defence accused of irresponsibility, refers to himself as layman on the stand'
'In South Africa courtroom, Oscar Pistorius treated like anyone else'
'..the expert said he had no training in ballistics or blood spatter analysis and was a geologist by training'
(I thought the headline for the NY Times was a little....well, uninspired?)
'Amputee admits killing wife'
(Not this case, but I thought it was interesting. The man finally admitted what he did and said he was scared to do so before.)
And bringing in the German carrot cake. It is sooooo nice. I could never bake anything so nice in a million years.
Mornin everyone. I thought they said court would be adjourned from Thursday until May 5.
Anywho, I found this CNN Anderson Cooper video on YouTube. I thought some might find it interesting, though probably most have seen it. It has that big blonde dude in it. You know the one that was in court. And it mentioned OP allegedly had facial reconstruction after a boating accident in which he was driving the boat. But bet you guys already know that. Just in case someone hasn't seen it:
The Dark Side of Pistorius?
It's on CNN's youtube account.
ETA: If you look at 1:06 on the video you can see the size of Oscar's bed. Yeah, like you wouldn't notice if someone wasn't it it.
I hypothesized that here some 2 weeks ago.
It was countered by some who said there was only a few drops of blood on duvet.
I them countered that by saying her heart, if still beating was doing so poorly, as it was only a few more seconds before, acc. to Dr.Perumal stated, she died at the toip of the stairs.
In this hypothesis, hero Dr. Stip and Mr. Baba may have thwarted OP's plan by seconds or minutes.
Good morning. Trying to stay awake a little bit longer. 2:10 a.m. here in Texas.
Zapiro's put up a drawing of Nel. I think they captured him....
And I just heard on whoop they've had snakes in the studio and it's on youtube? Whaat?
Thank you for the links! :loveyou: I copied your post over to the media links thread...
I'm holding out for a Stander or two today!
Crikey! I hope you don't have to work tomorrow.
Oscar arriving this morning.
I do but nothing that is going to require a whole lot of concentration ..and I took a nap this afternoon.
*Thanks for breakfast, zwiebel!
Good morning from Louisiana, USA!
Thanks for all your efforts in this regard!
If you are a female, I will say, "Ich liebe Dich"
If you are a male, I'll say,"Vielen Dank."
Give us a few German words each day, bitte. [As I did now.]
Good morning from a dull and overcast UK where it's now 08.21
Me too. It's 3:20 here in FL. Glad I am retired or I would not be able to do this.
Interesting. Whoop just said overnight interest rankings in the trial have England at number one at the moment (talking about Dixon); South Africa at number two, and Germany at number three.
Jacques Steenkamp of SABC News posted this on his Twitter, claiming it was a Facebook post by Dixon. Cannot be confirmed, and the masses are currently debating their authenticity.
Is the Ex-expert back on today/?
