Lee Harvey Oswald, long believed to be the assassin of John F. Kennedy, has been shrouded in mystery from the moment JFK was killed, 50 years ago today.

Oswald was a former U.S. Marine who defected to the U.S.S.R. in 1959. He lived in the Soviet Union until June 1962, at which time he returned to the U.S.

He was initially arrested for the murder of police officer J. D. Tippit, who was killed on a Dallas street approximately 45 minutes after Kennedy was shot.

Oswald would later be charged with the infamous assassination of the President of the United States, but denied involvement in either of the killings.

Two days later, while being transferred from police headquarters to the county jail, Oswald was shot and killed by Dallas nightclub owner Jack Ruby.

In full view of television cameras broadcasting live, Oswald died and took whatever he knew about the assassination of JFK with him to his grave.

Doria Tillier is a woman of her word. Even when her word means doing her job naked. And no, it's not because she was doing porn.

Tillier is a French weather forecaster and a big, big fan of the French national football team Les Bleus. Prior to her team's defeat of the team from the Ukraine in a game that would send the winner on to the World Cup, Tillier made a deal with...uh...the patron saint of nakedness?

According to The Telegraph, Tillier said, "I promise you that if we qualify tonight for the World Cup, I vow--here, in front of the whole of France--that I will tomorrow do my forecast naked."

And that's exactly what happened. The Les Bleus overcame a two-goal deficit and qualified for the World Cup and Tillier tossed her knickers to the wayside to remind people to grab their trenchcoats.

And we thought shirtless dudes in stadiums in sub-zero temperatures loved their teams. Not as much as this totally naked weathergirl from France, apparently.

One in eight babies in the United States is born premature. Benjamin Scott and wife Lyndsey became parents to one of these tiny miracles when their son Miles was born 15 weeks early weighing just 1.5 pounds. 

Scott, who is a filmmaker and photographer for Abercrombie & Fitch, picked up his camera and started filming Miles' life, starting with the first time the new mom got to hold her little fighter.

The baby spent 107 days in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) before being able to go home with his parents. 

The new dad continued his endeavor throughout his son's first year and the result of his labors, aside from one adorable little boy, is this heartwarming film showing his son's life from birth to first birthday. 

So grab some tissues and get ready to feel warm in your heart parts:

A Costco location in California has apologized for labeling what it describes as a "small percentage" of its Bible inventory as "Fiction."

The issue was brought to the attention of the store after Caleb Kaltenbach - a pastor at Simi's Discovery Church - noticed the placement of the Bibles and Tweeted:

"Costco has Bibles for sale under the genre of FICTION Hmmmm......,"

The pastor's congregation subsequently threatened a boycott, with one member telling KTLA:

"I was completely offended. I believe the Bible is real and it shouldn't be marked fiction."

Thanksgiving is still a week away, but anxious shoppers in Akron, Ohio, DO NOT want to miss out on the potential sales that big box stores are offering.

So determined are they to be first in line when the door to Best Buy opens that they are camping out with tents, heaters, televisions and air mattresses.

Already. Yes, they're aware Black Friday is next week, not tomorrow.

WOIO-TV talked to Jonas, who wants to buy a nice television as a gift for his family ... and apparently has nothing to do between now and Black Friday.

We're all for saving money and everything, but are securing Best Buy and Walmart Black Friday 2013 sales really worth giving up a week of your life?

Ask these people below and you may be surprised:

It's the end of an era. The pioneering desktop MP3 player Winamp, which so many of us grew up playing illegally downloaded tunes on, will soon be no more.

Yes, it is actually still in existence. But won't be as of December 20.

Winamp

In a world dominated by iTunes, "the first reaction to Winamp's closure might be surprise that it still exists in the first place," says the Wall Street Journal.

That it does. AOL acquired it in 1999, just two years after its creation, and when it was as hot as it gets, with its $80 million purchase of Nullsoft.

The AOL subsidiary has even continued tending to the once-venerable MP3 player, releasing updates and versions for Mac OSX and Android.

Winamp made its announcement as it released its latest, and last, update to Windows. This and other versions will still work after December 20, AOL said.

First Lorde splashed into the music scene and all over the airwaves (and Revenge and The Vampire Diaries) with her single "Royals."

Then there were the AcaBelles who covered the hit.

Now there are these girls and their hilarious parody. They've never seen a rapper in the flesh, but they watch Jay Z videos on TV.

And their zip code is trendy.

Get ready to laugh at the Oh Lordy video for "White Girls." They won the DNA lottery, you guys!

Paula Deen, the Butter Queen, is making headlines once again as reports that the factories she used to manufacture her lifestyle products were notorious for child labor violations and hazardous and deadly working conditions.

RadarOnline.com reports that it has "uncovered Deen's extensive history of partnering with companies that can make her rich, no matter the cost to their workers."

With Deen netting over $17 million last year and being the 4th highest paid celebrity chef, it seems like perhaps they're not wrong.

In recent months, Paula Deen has weathered allegations of racism, been dropped by all of her sponsors, and fired from the Food Network which helped make her a household name in the first place. 

Is she gearing up for another battle over the factories where her products are made? Maybe.

GoldieBlox is taking girl power to the next level with their clever and catchy rewrite of the Beastie Boys' song "Girls" in their latest ad campaign.

Designed to encourage girls to pursue engineering and other STEM fields, GoldieBlox aims to "disrupt the pink aisle" with their construction toys created "from a female perspective."

And oh, what a perspective it is. At least according to the song.

Just like the 50s, it's GIRLS!

We would like to use our brains! We're all more than princess manes!

He's certainly no Brad Pitt, but this guy on his cell phone definitely crashed a wedding. Or at least the wedding photos of the groom and his half of the party.

Redditor Melissa Biebel submitted this photo from her wedding to the /r/funny forum with the caption "Don't mind us, just busy taking wedding photos."

"Sorry for interrupting whatever it is you're doing..."

Which was taking a leisurely stroll through a public park while on the phone and shirtless, apparently. You know, like every normal human being does.

The pic is classic, as the oblivious photobomber looks as if he's the one being intruded upon by the guys in suits. As for the man himself ... words fail us:
