It's been a rough week for news, both at home and abroad, and even the unfailingly smiley Jimmy Fallon was forced to admit that things are pretty bad out there. Never one to take bad news lying down, Fallon decided to just straight up lie, and recruited a few news stories that aren't necessarily true, but, hey, it'd be nice if they were. Thanks, Jimmy. We feel better all ready ... Discuss

Back in 2011, Rich Walsh and his bride found their Pittsburgh wedding to be the site of a reckoning. The Dark Knight Rises was filming around the corner from the site of their nuptials, peppering their vows with all manner of explosions and Bat-goings on. Allegedly, all the commotion frustrated the couple, which is weird, because it sounds awesome. In any case, Tom Hardy (Bane) stopped by to try in his charming wedding attire to smooth things over, and the crew even let the couple pose for a few pictures with the Batmobile, so the wedding ended up being a happy one ...

According to documents released by the ACLU, the Ferguson police department waited 10 days to even review the incident report filed following the shooting of Michael Brown. And even then, the report contained very few actual details. From The Wire: “It doesn't say what happened, it doesn't say how, and it wasn't even reviewed by a supervisor until 10 days after Michael Brown died.” That means, if a Grand Jury determines that charges will be brought against officer Darren Wilson, they won’t have the detailed official incident report recounting what happened to use as evidence ...

America’s new favorite leading man (and former van-dweller) Chris Pratt genuinely seems like a pretty great dude. During a special screening of his action hit Guardians of the Galaxy for patients and parents at Children's' Hospital of Los Angeles, Pratt covertly left, and returned dressed as Star-Lord. For the next three hours Pratt handed out Guardians of the Galaxy toys, and then visited with kids too sick to go to the screening. According to E!, when one of the children recognized his voice from The Lego Movie, the duo spent the next 10 minutes repeating dialogue from the comedy. Well played, Andy Dwyer ... Discuss

According to a new report from the UN Human Rights Data Analysis Group, the number of people who have died since the start of Syria’s civil war is twice as high as it was just a year ago. The agency has verified the deaths of 191,369 people from March 2011 to April 2014. Agency chief Navi Pillay said in a statement, “Tragically, it is probably an underestimate of the real total number of people killed during the first three years of this murderous conflict.” The report sharply criticized the lack of effort from the international community and the United Nations Security Council to help the people of Syria, telling them, “I firmly believe that greater responsiveness by this Council would have saved hundreds of thousands of lives” ...
