A Southern California man has been arrested after police say he whacked a taxi with a didgeridoo in an argument over the fare.
The 31-year-old man and a woman were picked up Sunday night in Chula Vista then fell asleep during a 20-minute ride to a home, according to the U-T San Diego.
Police Lt. Phil Collum says when they arrived, the man got into an argument with the cabbie over the fare.
Collum says he went into the house and came out with a didgeridoo -- a long, wooden instrument from Australia.
Collum says the man threatened the driver with it. The cabbie drove off but the man allegedly chased the cab and whacked it several times with the didgeridoo, denting it.
Arriving police arrested him on suspicion of vandalism.


A didgeridoo is made of wood. Right?

London police claim they've solved spy's death

Associated Press

LONDON — A bit over three years ago, British spy Gareth Williams was found dead.

Williams, a cyberwarfare expert, worked for Britain's GCHQ eavesdropping service and was attached to the overseas espionage agency MI6 when he died.

His naked, decomposing body was discovered stuffed inside a locked gym bag at the bottom of his bathtub in August 2010.

London's Metropolitan Police announced Wednesday that they had solved the mystery: Williams likely died in an accident with no one else involved.

Police admitted that their solution of the case was unlikely to calm conspiracy theories surrounding the case. An earlier coroner's report had concluded that Williams' death was likely a homicide.

RC copter used to drop/smuggle tobacco into prison
http://www.complex.com/city-guide/2013/11/four-arrested-smuggling-tobacco-into-georgia-prison-mini-helicopter (http://www.complex.com/city-guide/2013/11/four-arrested-smuggling-tobacco-into-georgia-prison-mini-helicopter)

four geniuses stand accused of using a mini-helicopter to sneak tobacco into Calhoun State Prison in Calhoun County, Ga. The criminal quartet was busted in the woods while operating the tiny(?) chopper.

Police noticed it hovering above the gate of the prison after making two drops, which triggered a search. A suspicious-looking vehicle was found, and inside were roughly two pounds of tobacco.

Because it's a felony to sneak contraband across prison guard lines, all four face up to 20 years behind bars.

Quote
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - A homeowner walked in on a suspect cooking hot dogs at his home early Tuesday morning, according to Grand Rapids Police.

Authorities arrived at the home in the 900 block of McReynolds Avenue NW in Grand Rapids around 3 a.m. Tuesday on a report of a home invasion.

The homeowner told police something woke them up and when they went to check on what it was, they found the door busted open and the suspect cooking hot dogs in the kitchen.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Police say an Iowa man was arrested after he pulled a knife on his brother during a fight over peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/1e5JdAD (http://dmreg.co/1e5JdAD) ) that Jerome Davis was arrested on Friday after the confrontation with his brother in their Des Moines home. Both men are in their 50s.

Davis' accuser told police he was angry because he believed his brother was eating too many peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Davis allegedly made three sandwiches and ate them in their living room, and made another less than an hour later.

A police report says the brothers began to argue about laziness and overeating. Davis allegedly pulled out a folding knife and held it his brother's face.

Davis was charged with domestic abuse with a weapon.

A cab driver who decided to spend an afternoon at an Oak Creek (WI) hotel with an "old female friend" he picked up in Milwaukee called police after he woke up a few hours later and found his friend missing — along with his cab, his money and his cellphone — Dec. 22.

According to the Oak Creek police report:

The man told police he picked up an old female friend at an Open Pantry (convenience store)  in Milwaukee (WI) and took her to a room at the Candlewood Suites (motel), 6440 S. 13th St., about 12:45 p.m.

He told police he believed her name was "Nikki," but he didn't know her last name or any other information about her.

The investigating officer contacted an employee at Candlewood Suites, who confirmed that the two did check into the room about 12:47 p.m. The employee also told police she received a call from the female, who wanted to know if the hotel had any sex toys available for sale or rent.

The man told police he and the woman drank alcohol together, and that he fell asleep about 1:30 p.m. When he woke up about 7:20 p.m., his friend, his car keys, his yellow 1999 Dodge Caravan, a $630 cellphone and about $240 were missing.

At 9:15 p.m. Dec. 23, police received a call from the man, who had found his vehicle in the 1000 block of South 20th Street in Milwaukee. There was no damage to the vehicle, but he later reported that a $130 GPS unit he had inside his cab was missing.

Death by Wedgie
OKLAHOMA CITY -- A 33-year-old Oklahoma man has been charged with killing his stepfather by giving him an "atomic wedgie" that caused the victim to suffocate on his own underwear.

Brad Lee Davis was charged with murder in the death of 58-year-old Denver St. Clair in a drunken family fight at a residence just east of Oklahoma City, the Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Office said in an arrest affidavit obtained on Wednesday.

Police arrested Davis on Tuesday. The affidavit said he "grabbed St. Clair's underwear and gave him an 'atomic wedgie.' Davis allegedly pulled the elastic waistband of St. Clair's underwear over his head and around his neck."

Oklahoma Medical Examiner spokeswoman Amy Elliott said the cause of death was asphyxiation and blunt force trauma.

Pottawatomie County Sheriff Deputy Travis Palmer said Davis and St. Clair were drinking beer on the night of Dec. 21 at the older man's residence when St. Clair began speaking ill about his wife, who is Davis' mother.

Investigators said St. Clair's elastic waistband was stretched over his head and that it left ligature marks around his neck. Blood splatter was also found in the kitchen, the living room and on the living room ceiling.

Davis was being held in Pottawatomie County without bond. His lawyer was not immediately available for comment.

Philadelphia Searching For Swiss Cheese Masturbator

Quote
That man you see above is holding a slice of Swiss cheese over his dick. He is currently driving around the Mayfair area of Philadelphia asking women to use the slice of cheese while jerking him off.

The man, who has yet to be identified, is being sought by cops in Philadelphia after a number of women have filed complaints with police stating that he has driven up to them in parking lots and exposed himself while asking to be masturbated with a slice of Swiss cheese.

The Philadelphia Daily News has also talked to a 20-year-old woman named Gabby Chest who claims that the same man sent her a message on OKCupid asking her to "perform masturbation on him with cheese." The Daily News obtained an excerpt from that message in which the man explains the genesis of his fetish:

"I started to compare girls to cheese due to their milky complections [sic], girls are soft, smooth feeling and tend to like dairy products more. That and typical advertising, always using a girl to advertise dairy products. So cheese is what I started to use as a replacement for having sex with girls."

This is what it means to be a woman in America. If a 50-year-old man isn't harassing you online about executing a specific food fetish, he's driving up to you in a parking lot with his dick out and a slice of Swiss cheese literally in his hand.

And here Philly thought its stupid sandwiches were the extent of its cheese problem.

The vehicle, driven by a 20-year-old man, hit the a 56-year-old man riding the tricycle about 8:30 p.m. Saturday, the Manitowoc Police Department said in a news release. The cyclist went partly through the windshield of the vehicle, but the motorist did not stop. Instead, police said, the driver headed home, striking another vehicle along the way when he ran a stop sign.

The cyclist pulled himself into the vehicle after it stopped at the suspect's home, and the suspect then tried to lock him inside, the statement said.

A witness had followed the suspect to his home and called police, who arrested him. The victim was able to get out of the vehicle. Police found him nearby.

The cyclist was taken to a hospital, where he was treated and released for unspecified nonlife-threatening injuries.

The suspect, who suffered a "significant laceration" on his hand, faces potential charges including OWI causing injury, hit and run causing injury, and failure to render aid.

Naked man holds his girlfriend hostage on top of a roof with a meat cleaver for five hours 'because his in-laws refused to let them get married


Quote
A construction worker held his girlfriend hostage on a Chinese rooftop after her parents reportedly refused to approve their marriage.
Hundreds of onlookers and armed police watched as the man stripped to his underwear and ordered his girlfriend to do the same so she would be shamed in front of their neighbours.
He announced he was going to kill her and claimed the 29-year-old regularly had affairs when he went to work, according to various local media reports.


He held his girlfriend by the throat and waved the meat cleaver in the air as trained negotiators tried to talk him down from the roof of the quiet residential block.
The man's relatives were brought to the scene on Monday to try and talk him down but had little luck.

As police and soldiers surrounded the rooftop, the half-naked kidnapper demanded a getaway car for himself and his girlfriend.
Eventually police provided one and, still holding his terrified partner, the man put his jeans back on and climbed down from the roof into a city square.
But as he made his way towards the car officers gave chase, managing to pull him away from his girlfriend and throw him to the ground.
Still topless, he was handcuffed in front of hundreds of stunned onlookers and led away.
The man now faces a lengthy jail term - and according to reports, not even his own parents had approved the marriage in the first place.

Dmitry Kozak, the deputy prime minister responsible for the Olympic preparations, reflected the view held among many Russian officials that some Western visitors are deliberately trying to sabotage Sochi's big debut out of bias against Russia.
"We have surveillance video from the hotels that shows people turn on the shower, direct the nozzle at the wall and then leave the room for the whole day," he said.
An aide then pulled a reporter away before Mr. Kozak could be questioned further on surveillance in hotel rooms.

Are Paracas Elongated Skulls a New Species, Aliens or a Hoax?
Quote
Initial DNA analysis of one of the 3,000-year-old elongated skulls found in Paracas, Peru, has revealed that they may not have been come from humans but from a completely new species, according to Paracas Museum assistant director Brien Foerster.

Foerster, who also runs his own tour group company in Peru and has authored 11 books on ancient history, told Ancient Origins that a geneticist who tested skull samples has found that they contain mutated DNA that does not match any known genetic DNA information in GenBank, an open-access sequence database of all the known genetic data in the world.

The unidentified geneticist told Foerster: "It had mtDNA (mitochondrial DNA) with mutations unknown in any human, primate, or animal known so far. But a few fragments I was able to sequence from this sample indicate that if these mutations will hold we are dealing with a new human-like creature, very distant from Homo sapiens, Neanderthals and Denisovans."

"I am not sure it will even fit into the known evolutionary tree," the geneticist added.

Geneticist won't come forward, for now

According to Foerster, the geneticist in question, who apparently does contract work for the US government, is willing to go public, but does not want to come forward until the tests prove the theory conclusively.

Peruvian archaeologist Julio Tello discovered the skulls in 1928 in a massive graveyard in Paracas, desert peninsula in the Pisco Province on the south coast of Peru. Over 300 skulls were discovered and are some of the largest elongated skulls to have been found in the world.

It has always been thought that the skulls are elongated as a result of cranial deformation, whereby the head has been bound or flattened in order to achieve the unusual shape, however Foerster does not think this is the case with the Paracas skulls.

"From the doctors that I have spoken to, they have said that you can alter the shape of the skull but you cannot increase the size of the skull. The skull is genetically predetermined to have a certain volume," he said.

The reddish-brown colour of the ancient Paracas people and their unusual height is also not typical to the region, so Foerster, who has co-authored a book entitled, "The Enigma of Cranial Deformation: Elongated Skulls of the Ancients", thinks it is possible that these people migrated from another part of the world, possibly Georgia, where other 2,000 year-old elongated skulls have been found.

There are still many more tests that need to be carried out to verify what the DNA is, but genetic studies cost a lot of money.

With the help of interested individuals over the last two years, Foerster has so far raised $7,000 (£4,260, €5,120) to do the initial DNA testing, but a full genome study to completely verify the theory would cost at least $100,000, so he is hoping that geneticists will be willing to volunteer their services and equipment "for the good of humanity".

"I have had many different ideas but I've been waiting for actual DNA analysis and that has taken an incredibly long time, mainly due to lack of funding and also finding a geneticist who is open to studying this, doing it at a fraction of the normal cost that it would cost commercially," he explained.

"My intent simply is to find the truth as to who these people were."

This is interesting.  I'm waiting for peer review and better tests, but if true (which I kind of doubt), this could be big:


"Samples of these skulls (hair, including roots, tooth, bone and skin) housed at the Paracas History Museum were taken. Here’s the kicker… they were sent, not to a reputable scientist or geneticist, but to Lloyd Pye (now deceased), founder of the Starchild Project who believed in alien hybrids. Guess who he gave them to for testing? (This is rich.) Our favorite Nobel-wishing genetic tester, friend of the forest people, Dr. Melba Ketchum. Ketchum has made our feature posts as the orchestrator of the Bigfoot DNA testing boondoggle. In February of 2013, she self-published a paper (after it was rejected by mainstream journals) that her collection of supposed Bigfoot genetic samples showed the North American Sasquatch was a hybrid of an unknown ape and a human mother. The findings were roundly rejected. See the chronicles of Ketchum here."

SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) - A motorcyclist who taunted San Antonio police for a week with a Facebook video of himself driving recklessly through traffic along with the message "catch me if you can" was caught while sneaking out of a friend's house, police said on Tuesday.

Police took Alberto Rodriguez, 27, into custody on Monday for suspected motorcycle theft and in connection with several outstanding arrest warrants.

"When we pulled up on the house, our man ran out the back door and was hiding behind an air-conditioning unit," San Antonio Police Chief William McManus told reporters.

An attorney for Rodriguez was not immediately available for comment.

Officers recovered a stolen motorcycle during the arrest but said it was not the one that was seen in the video.

Prosecutors were considering whether to charge him with traffic violations for what was captured in the video, where a rider is seen weaving through traffic at up to 100 mph on a packed San Antonio highway.

Police said the video was taken with a helmet camera and was first posted on Rodriguez's Facebook page with the message "Catch me if you can."

"He said 'catch me if you can,' and our detectives caught him," McManus said.

Olympians Stand Tall in Their Onesies

Quote
KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia — The German bobsledders had a day off before their competition began, so they decided to go shopping in the charming Alpine village that has sprouted in the mountains above Sochi.

They ignored both the wildly overcrowded McDonald’s and the Russian version of an Irish pub, and ended up, like so many before them, in Russia’s first store dedicated solely to adult onesies.

“I love it!” squealed Sandra Kiriasis, a pilot with Germany’s bobsled team, as she admired a gray onesie with a snowflake design. Franziska Fritz, her partner on the sled and in shopping, already had a onesie at home and was in the market for another.

Within moments, they were hustled to the dressing room with matching black onesies, which they proceeded to buy.

A onesie, as the German Olympians were well aware, is a one-piece outfit with a zipper from crotch to head that is usually worn by very young children — think of Mickey from “In the Night Kitchen.”

It slips over diapers. It absorbs spit up. And now, it’s for grown-ups, or at least grown-ups who don’t mind looking like they’re headed to nap time.
Onesies have recently caught on among European club kids, but this month they became a surprise hit at the Sochi Olympic Games, thanks to OnePiece, a Norwegian company that opened a store here for the Games.

The onesie has charmed Moscow tourists, Siberian executives, a Russian Maxim model and, most especially and confoundingly, the world’s greatest athletes.

Swiss hockey players have bought onesies. Gregory Bretz, an American snowboarder, tweeted a picture of himself wearing a onesie printed with an American flag. A Russian luger tried one on. Sage Kotsenburg, an American snowboarder who won a gold medal, has stopped by the store, as has the Russian snowboard team, a Canadian bobsledder and two Norwegian athletes. The store has set up an Instagram feed to document its celebrated visitors.

“I guarantee this is going to catch on in the States,” said Cory Butner, an American bobsledder who admired the onesies in the shop window on a recent afternoon. “In three months, they’ll be all over the States.”

Horny widow, 58, propositioned police officer for sex after making fake 911 call

The self proclaimed 'horny' widow was arrested on Friday after she placed a fake 911 call then propositioned the responding officer for sex.
Maria Montanez-Colon, 58, allegedly aggressively fondled the officer and told him: 'I haven't been penetrated in years.'
Mrs Montanez-Colon, who claimed that her late husband was an NYPD officer, said she called police to her Florida home after a family row over a Corvette which belonged to her late husband.

According to a police report from The Smoking Gun, Punta Gorda Police Department officer Justin Davoult was told by the inebriated 58-year-old: 'You are so sexy.'
In the report Davoult, 31, stated: 'I asked her what I could help her with and she stated: ''You can f*** me.'''
Officer Davoult said the woman tried to rub his chest and grab his arm.

After the police officer left the home, the woman dialed 911 again and said that the officer had 'p***** her off'. Officer Davoult responded once again to the home with a police lieutenant as back-up.

According to the report, Montanez-Colon told the officers that Davoult 'had been a perfect gentleman but when I asked him to f*** me, he turned me down so that made me angry'.
When the officers asked the woman if she understood that she had misused the emergency call system, she answered: 'I do, but how else am I going to get you to f*** me?'

The 58-year-old was arrested for misuse of 911 and booked into the Charlotte County Jail

Turns out the manuscript was actually a guide to siege warfare, and those be-backpacked kitties are meant to burn down hard-to-access castles and the like, dying in the process. Considering, for example, the section titled “To set fire to a castle or city which you can’t get at otherwise’:

“This section details how to use doves and cats loaded with flammable devices to set fire to enemy positions.

On cats the text paints a grisly picture of attaching lit sacks of incendiaries onto the animals to have them return to their homes and set fire to them.

'Create a small sack like a fire-arrow … if you would like to get at a town or castle, seek to obtain a cat from that place.

'And bind the sack to the back of the cat, ignite it, let it glow well and thereafter let the cat go, so it runs to the nearest castle or town, and out of fear it thinks to hide itself where it ends up in barn hay or straw it will be ignited.'"

2 seriously hurt when car goes off overpass and 'lands' on a basketball court

Two people were injured early Wednesday when a car careened from the S. 35th St. viaduct (Milwaukee calls overpasses 'viaducts') onto a basketball court on W. Pierce St. in Milwaukee, police said.

The crash occurred shortly after 2 a.m., and the car narrowly missed hitting surrounding buildings, Milwaukee police said.

Police said a 2008 Chevy Cobalt was traveling southbound across the viaduct at a high rate of speed when the driver lost control, struck the guardrail and plunged over the edge.

The car was occupied by a 24-year-old Mequon man and a 31-year-old Milwaukee woman. Both were injured, and both are undergoing treatment at a hospital. The man is in serious condition and the woman is in critical condition, police said.

The investigation is ongoing, and police are working to determine which occupant was driving at the time of the crash.

Woman listed as Glasgow Tourist Attraction on TripAdvisor

http://www.nbcnews.com/business/travel/woman-60-mistakenly-listed-glasgow-tourist-attraction-n40611 (http://www.nbcnews.com/business/travel/woman-60-mistakenly-listed-glasgow-tourist-attraction-n40611)

Mary Johnston, 60, does live in Glasgow, but she has no idea how her name and (sideways) photo showed up in TripAdvisor’s listings of museums to visit in the city.

“I didn’t set it up. It must be a bug in the system or it is malicious,” Johnston told The Scotsman. “I’m already a user and I went on recently to review somewhere in Amsterdam so it may have happened then.”

Intentional or not, once Johnston was entered into the TripAdvisor database as an attraction, the software automatically asked users if they’d “been to Mary Johnston?” and invited them to share their experiences, as Johnston was “ready for reviews.”

Several people did weigh in with comments ranging from "This attraction wasn’t in the guidebooks but is fun for all the family if you’re a fan of people called Mary or rotationally-challenged photos" to “If you visit just one Mary on your next trip to Glasgow, make sure it’s Mary Doll!”

The starred reviews placed Johnston at #87 of 163 TripAdvisor attractions in Glasgow.

On Thursday afternoon both Johnston’s photo and the reviews had been removed from the TripAdvisor site, but her name was still included as an entry in the “museums” category.

Human Barbie wants to live on light and air alone

Quote
Human Barbie doll Valeria Lukyanova says she intends to train herself to be able to live on just air and light.

"In recent weeks I have not been hungry at all. I'm hoping it's the final stage before I can subsist on air and light alone," Lukyanova told the International Business Times.

The Ukranian model and singer whose Facebook page boasts 994,000 'likes,' is apparently following Breatharianism, a mysterious cult that advocates living without food or water. A breatharian is said to be someone who never eats or drinks as they can exist on "cosmic micro-food."

The paper says that this is not the first time that Lukyanova declared something unusual.

The girl claims she was kicked out of the house.  Now, she wants the court to order her parents to support her.

Dmitri Mendeleev Presents First Periodic Table (1869)

The periodic table is a tabular display of all known chemical elements arranged according to the periodic law discovered by Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev. The elements are arranged in columns and rows according to increasing atomic number, which is defined as the number of protons in the nucleus of an atom. The table summarizes the major properties of the elements and enables predictions to be made about their behavior. How many elements currently appear on the periodic table?

Gumtree user conned out of £80 gets 'revenge' on seller - by sending him the complete works of Shakespeare by TEXT

A furious graphic designer who was ripped off on Gumtree (a UK classified listings site) took revenge on the internet seller - by bombarding him with the entire works of Shakespeare by text.

Edd Joseph, 24, bought a PS3 games console online for £80 only for the vendor to fail to deliver the goods.

He'd bought the console and a bundle of games from a seller in Derby two weeks ago, but paid by direct bank transfer - giving him no protection when the online conman refused to send the goods or provide a refund.

Edd, from Bristol, found he can simply copy the words from the internet and paste them into a text message - without costing him a penny on his unlimited mobile phone package.

He sends it as one text but his ‘victim’ can only receive them in 160 character chunks - meaning the 37 works of Shakespeare will buzz through in 29,305 individual texts.

So far Edd has sent 22 plays including Hamlet, Macbeth and Othello which have been delivered in 17,424 texts.

He reckons the remaining 15 works will take another few days to send - meaning his adversary's phone will have been constantly beeping for nearly a WEEK.

Edd said: 'I was really annoyed and I was trying to think of ways of being more in the position of power because I felt so helpless about it.

Brilliant.  I may have done something like that once about 6-7 years ago when former students decided to begin prank calling me on my cell.  I set up an old dial-up modem I had with the computer and rigged it to call them back for a week straight.  It would ring for 10 rings or until it had answer (whichever came first), then try to connect (leaving the annoying tones on VM until the VM box was full), hang up and redial.  24 hours a day, for a full week.  That fixed it.

I heard about the same technique used a few years earlier with some dude that was upset about wrong charges he had for something-or-other.  He told the company he would set his modem to auto-dial their 800 number, charging them, until they rectified the situation.  He started, and they fixed the charges.

Of course I'm not sure about the legality of these things.   :shrug:

Report: Ukraine military dolphins to switch nationalities, join Russian navy

Quote
(CNN) -- Just when you thought this divorce couldn't get any messier.

Weeks after Russia annexed Ukraine's Crimea region, it plans to take custody of dolphins in the nation as well.

Not just any dolphins. These highly trained military mammals detect risks such as sea mines or enemy scuba divers trying to slip through. Sea mines are sophisticated weapons that can sink ships and other watercraft.

"The combat dolphin program in the Crimean city of Sevastopol will be preserved and redirected toward the interests of the Russian navy," state-run Russian news agency RIA Novosti reported Thursday.

Dolphins are a crucial part of open-water security. They detect sounds and objects in murky waters that human beings can't, making them uniquely effective at highlighting dangers on the sea floor.

Ukraine was using outdated military equipment for the dolphin program and planned to disband it next month, RIA Novosti said.

The Ukraine Defense Ministry told CNN that the nation has an ocean dolphin facility but declined to provide details, saying they're classified.

The dolphin program dates to the 1960s, when Russia and Ukraine were part of the Soviet Union, but was handed over to Kiev after independence, RIA Novosti said.

The U.S. Navy in San Diego also trains dolphins and sea lions to help protect its assets and find dangerous objects underwater.

Tensions between Moscow and Kiev have escalated since Russia reclaimed the Crimea region after a referendum this month that overwhelmingly supported the annexation. The United States and its allies have pledged to isolate Russia for its actions.

Ukraine also has combat sea lions that operate under the same base. It's unclear whether they'll be barking allegiances to Moscow or Kiev.

http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/private-massage-ends-arrest (http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/private-massage-ends-arrest)

By FRANCIS McCABE
LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL

Christina Lafave did the time. Now she’s charged with the crime.

The caper of the missing $35,000 Rolex Presidential watch began with drinks and some chit-chat between Lafave and 66-year-old Kenneth Herold at Wynn Las Vegas’ B Bar on a January night.

Soon the two were heading upstairs to Herold’s suite after he forked over three $100 bills for a private massage offered by the 25-year-old Lafave.

On his left wrist, as seen on security surveillance, was the yellow-colored timepiece. Rolex Presidential watches range in price from $10,000 to upwards of $30,000. The more expensive ones often are encrusted with jewels, such as diamonds.

A few hours later, about 3 a.m. on Jan. 15, Herold called Wynn security to his suite.

Accusations began to fly. Herold said Lafave stole his watch. She denied it and said Herold was mad because she refused to perform oral sex on him without a condom.

No one had left the room, but the watch was no where to be found.

Lafave then tried to leave, but Wynn security cuffed her and called Metro.

Herold later would tell investigators that once he and Lafave had gone to his room, he disrobed and got onto a massage table that was in the suite. About 30 minutes into the rubdown, Lafave told Herold to take off his watch so she could massage his arms.

He put the watch on the ground within his view. Five to seven minutes later, it was gone.

Lafave steadfastly denied any wrongdoing, so two Metro officers combed the suite for the watch, to no avail.

There was one place they hadn’t looked.

Lafave finally admitted where the watch was, police said.

She was taken to University Medical Center, where she said she was in pain. A search warrant was signed, and an X-ray was taken of Lafave’s midsection.

“Prior to medical staff assisting Lafave with the removal of the watch she admitted to them that she had stolen a watch and concealed the item in her vagina,” a police report said.

Defense lawyer Chris Rasmussen was outraged when he found out the lengths and depths police went to retrieve the watch from his client and is hoping to suppress what he said was an illegal search-and-seizure.

“We intend to file a motion to suppress the medical intrusion,” Rasmussen said. “The search is an unreasonable search when medical providers have to use equipment to conduct an invasive procedure to remove what police believe is evidence.”

Herold and Lafave’s rendezvous was a consensual encounter, Rasmussen said. “We believe he gave her the watch and later he tried to take it back when he wasn’t satisfied with her services. Like any person who works in these hotels, she believed she was going to be compensated for her massage.”

Rasmussen said the case amounts to a 66-year-old man taking advantage of a young local woman.

Clark County prosecutors don’t see it that way. Lafave faces two felony counts, grand larceny and possession of stolen property.

It’s not known whether the watch was returned to its owner or remains in an evidence vault pending Lafave’s trial. Attempts to reach Herold were unsuccessful.

Lafave, who has Metro-issued work cards allowing her to dance at Cheetahs, Cover Girls and Babes strip clubs, is free on $40,000 bail, court records show.

She is set to appear before a Las Vegas judge in the case on May 15. If convicted, Lafave faces one to 20 years in prison.

It’s unknown whether she will get credit for time already served.

Thai charity workers stand next to a crater created by a bomb explosion at a scrap metal shop in Bangkok, Thailand Wednesday, April 2, 2014. Workers at the scrap shop in Thailand's capital on Wednesday accidentally detonated a large bomb believed to have been dropped during World War II, killing at least seven people and injuring 19 others, police said.

Construction workers found the shell at a construction site and brought it to a warehouse on the outskirts of Bangkok to be cut up.

"We believe the bomb dates back to World War Two and weighed about 227 kg. As they probably did not know (what to do), they used a blow torch to try to cut open the bomb," said police superintendent Kamthorn Uicharoen.
Seven dead after suspected WWII bomb explodes in Bangkok

"The explosion created a three-meter deep crater."

Pools of blood and body parts were scattered on the floor of the warehouse.

Reuters camera footage showed just the shell of the building remained, its interior a mesh of twisted metal as firefighters doused flames and burning embers.

Allied bombing raids on Bangkok began in 1942. Japan was using the country as a staging post for its invasions of Burma and Malaya.



Yeah, opening a bomb with a torch is a really great idea. Congratulations on your Darwin award dumbass.

Man mistakes dead woman's body for April Fools' mannequin

http://www.tampabay.com/news/publicsafety/housing-complex-clerk-mistakes-dead-woman-for-april-fools-mannequin/2173221 (http://www.tampabay.com/news/publicsafety/housing-complex-clerk-mistakes-dead-woman-for-april-fools-mannequin/2173221)

ST. PETERSBURG — About 4:30 a.m. Wednesday (April SECOND), Ronald Benjamin took his smoke break outside Peterborough Apartments, where he has worked as a desk clerk for nine years.
Benjamin, 61, looked onto the patio and saw a shape on the ground. It looked to him like a mannequin.
 An April Fools' Day joke, he concluded, and went back to work.
Two hours later, another employee of the senior housing complex told Benjamin about the shape on the patio. It was just a prank, Benjamin assured her.
When a woman and her teen son came by to deliver the Tampa Bay Times, Benjamin asked the boy to help him move the mannequin into a Dumpster.
He grabbed the shoes and the teen clasped a handful of clothes, which was topped with a ball of whitish-gray hair. It weighed almost nothing, Benjamin noted, as they heaved it into the trash.
Benjamin saw what looked like blood, but he thought it was fake.
Hours later, other workers at the complex discovered that the shape in the dumpster was not a mannequin, but a 96-year-old resident of the complex who had jumped 16 stories to her death.
They called Benjamin, whose shift had ended by then, and told him to come back.
He was stunned when he was told that it was a person.
"It's all I've thought about all day," Benjamin told a Times reporter at his home Wednesday evening. "I haven't slept all day."
Benjamin said the woman's face looked rubbery and formless, like a Halloween mask discarded on the ground. The bars had let out only an hour or so prior and he figured someone out for April Fools' Day had tossed it onto the property.
"I'm telling you, I swear to God, the face looked like a rubber mask," he said as he sat on his couch stroking his aging Yorkshire terrier on his lap. "If I thought for one instant it was a real person I would have called the police, my manager, everyone I could think of."
Police said they believe Benjamin honestly thought he saw a mannequin. They plan no criminal charges.
"Because of the height the woman fell it actually might have caused her features to be distorted, and possibly not look human to the unsuspecting eye," said St. Petersburg police spokesman Mike Puetz.
However, the complex fired Benjamin.

Blundering bomber 'blew himself up after forgetting to put his watch forward and device went off too soon'

Police believe a device may have exploded in Dublin on Sunday because a gangster forget about the Daylight Saving Time change.

A blundering bomber was being hunted last night after a powerful device he attached to a car exploded in his face.

The injured criminal fled the scene in Dublin “dripping in blood” on Sunday night after the device went off early.

It had been attached to a Volvo SUV belonging to a local businessman.

One of the theories is the suspect forgot about the clocks changing.

A source said: “It would appear that the bomber got his timings wrong. It could be a case where he didn’t put his watch forward on Sunday [at 1am] and the timer went off too soon.”

Lego is a tool of Satan, warns Polish priest

A Polish priest has warned parents to be on their guard against Lego, warning the plastic blocks are a tool of Satan and can "destroy" children's souls.

In a presentation aimed at parents, Father Slawomir Kostrzewa said the popular Danish toy company had taken a lurch to the dark side with its series of Monster Fighters and Zombie mini-figures, and that they "were about darkness and the world of death".

"Friendly fellows have been replaced by dark monsters," he explained. "These toys can have a negative effect on children. They can destroy their souls and lead them to the dark side."

AMERICA - "5am call from our London office:

   Where he was declared dead.
   
   Since he was dying, the man had neglected to
   bring his passport - a reckless oversight as
   US Immigration determined that, since he was
   declared dead after landing, he must have
   entered the US alive and would have to have
   his passport stamped before the body could be
   released. His passport was on its way to North

Didn't read the article but, I never take all my vacation. Since sick time is part of vacation hours, I'm hesitent to use it all up in case I do get sick. Company has a policy of letting you roll over 40 hours of vacation, the rest is lost. So I do make sure to take all but 40 hours.

On the plus side, I've been with the company 6.5 years so have 5 weeks of vacation a year, 6 with the 40 in the bank.

Hostess Twinkies Are Invented (1930)
The Twinkie was invented by baker James Dewar, who noticed that the shop's shortcake pans were only used during the strawberry season and otherwise sat idle. His thrifty idea to use the pans during the off-season led to the development of the banana-filled Twinkie snack cake. During a World War II banana shortage, vanilla filling replaced the original banana. Twinkies disappeared from US shelves in 2012 when Hostess declared bankruptcy but returned in 2013. What is the "Twinkie defense"?

March 24; 41-year-old Sandra Suarez arrived at the Pinellas Park McDonald's wearing nothing but bathing suit bottoms around 10:50 p.m. She was clutching her clothes in her hand but refused to get dressed despite employees' requests, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
That's when she went into a rampage causing about $10,000 worth of damage.
Although there's no audio, the woman appears to be screaming as she bangs her head on the counter, empties a refrigerator and throws food.
She then stops to eat some ice cream straight from the soft serve machine.
The McDonald's employees who posted the video have been fired.

Legitimate news story:

Billboard hopes to catch serial pooper
YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) — A billboard along Interstate 94 is part of an effort to help catch a person who has been soiling slides at an Ypsilanti playground over the last six months.

WJBK-TV reports Adams Outdoor Advertising put eye-catching messages such as “Help us flush the pooper” and “Do your civic doody, report the pooper” on an electronic billboard about the case.

Earlier this month, officials in Ypsilanti said they were taking measures to put a stop to the so-called mystery pooper. Police or other Ypsilanti employees have been stopping at Prospect Park each morning to make sure another surprise was not left overnight.

The park sits near a school and features a basketball court, a tennis court being used as a skateboarding venue as well as a picnic area.

Police find bodies of seven babies in Utah home

Quote
Utah police have arrested a 39-year-old woman in connection with the discovery of seven infants' bodies in the garage of a home in a small community 40 minutes south of Salt Lake City.
Pleasant Grove Police Capt. Michael Roberts told the Los Angeles Times on Sunday that investigators think Megan Huntsman gave birth to all of the infants between 1996 and 2006 and then killed them.
“We believe she birthed each baby and then killed it after it was born,” he said.
Police made the grisly finding Saturday morning in the town of 35,000 after the woman’s estranged husband, who was cleaning the garage prior to moving back into the home, found a dead infant and called authorities. Huntsman had moved out of the house in 2011 and was living nearby.
Police served a search warrant and found six more tiny bodies in cardboard boxes in the garage, Roberts said. “I’ve never seen anything like this. It’s shocking.”

In Finland,  their new stamps feature drawings of gay bondage porn.

The drawings come courtesy of the Tom of Finland Foundation, the organization that controls the works of the famous Finnish gay porn artist born Touko Laaksonen. In a statement, Finland's post office praised Laaksonen's contribution to culture.

His emphatically masculine homoerotic drawings have attained iconic status in their genre and had an influence on, for instance, pop culture and fashion. In his works, Tom of Finland utilized the self-irony and humor typical of subcultures.

Brooklyn's Smallest Penis Contest Is Back For 2014, Still Nuts

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/15/2014-smallest-penis-contest-brooklyn_n_5153281.html (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/15/2014-smallest-penis-contest-brooklyn_n_5153281.html)




It's time, once again, to make the little things count.

The "Smallest Penis Contest," a nutty competition which debuted last year, will return to Brooklyn's Kings County Bar on June 14.

Per a media release, contestants will be judged in multiple categories, including "poise in both evening wear and bathing wear." In addition to a cash prize (which can optionally be donated to charity), a "wee crown and scepter" will be awarded to the less-endowed man best exhibiting "extraordinary heart, talent, and chutzpa."

In an interview with The Huffington Post, last year's winner, Nicholas Gilronan, described the competition as "laid back, fun, casual," comparing it to just another "fun time on a Saturday afternoon."

Last year, event promoters told HuffPost the pageant is all about empowering the little guys, describing it as a competition "for confident people with a sense of humor." For the 2014 contest, organizers have been chasing after Miley Cyrus as a judge, but as this isn't a twerking contest, we aren't holding our breath.

Those interested in competing or serving as a judge must be over 21, and have been asked to email SPB.Brooklyn@gmail.com for further details.

A Wisconsin correctional officer got to Madison around 4:25 a.m. for training, and parked his car, with the keys still in the ignition, just outside of a hotel in the 4800 block of East Washington Avenue, according to a release.

When the officer went into the hotel, he heard his car starting up and saw it leaving the lot, officials said. The officer didn’t see the person stealing his vehicle, but the hotel’s surveillance cameras led him to a partially-consumed cinnamon roll in the parking lot.

The officer could see the man on the surveillance footage eating the cinnamon roll before he got into the car and drove away, according to the release.

The officer went to a nearby restaurant and asked if there had been any recent cinnamon roll purchases, police said. The employee said there was, and the man had paid with cash, so they wouldn’t be able to track a credit card. The employee also told the officer the man who bought the cinnamon roll had been dropped off by a squad car from the Sun Prairie Police Department.

According to the release, the man was with a friend who was arrested for operating while under the influence, and got a ride from a Sun Prairie officer to the restaurant.

Madison police got the man’s name from Sun Prairie police, and went to an associated address on Portland Parkway, police said. The man initially denied having contact with Sun Prairie police, denied being at the restaurant, and denied being at the hotel where the car was stolen.

Officers told the 26-year-old they had visual evidence, and arrested him on tentative charges of operating a motor vehicle without consent, according to the release. Officers found the correctional officer’s stolen vehicle parked near the residence, and his uniform, cellphone and other personal items inside the residence.

The 26-year-old told police after he was arrested that he “just had a really bad night.”

DOVER, N.J. —

A woman has been reunited with her Yorkshire Terrier and flat-screen TV that were snatched during her first date with a man she met online.

The woman called police early Saturday to say that her dog, Violet, had been tied by its leash to the TV, and both were left in the front yard of her Dover home, the Daily Record of Parsippany ([url]http://dailyre.co/1eNpgE1[/url] ([url]http://dailyre.co/1eNpgE1[/url])) reported. Violet appeared to be in good health.

Authorities say the pair met on a dating site and went out for the first time Thursday night. After returning home, the woman said she became occupied in another room, leaving the man alone. When she returned, he was gone -- and so were her dog, valued at $4,000, and her TV, worth about $3,000.

The woman said she knew the man only as "Joel" and believed he lived in Elizabeth. Police said Saturday that they know the man's identity and that charges could be filed, though the investigation is ongoing.

Police said the man used the woman's cellphone, so they dusted it for fingerprints. They also checked other locations that the short-lived couple visited on their date.

A man with an all encompassing need for Speed has committed his entire life to a single pursuit - collecting every VHS copy of the movie Speed in the world.

Ryan Beitz, from Moscow, Idaho, wants to own every cassette copy of the classic 1994 thriller starring Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock and Dennis Hopper.

He already owns 550 tapes of the movie, and isn't stopping there. He's begun a Kickstarter campaign to deck out his van like the film's famous bus so he can travel the country to find more copies.

His obsession started when he bought six copies of the film at a pawn shop in 2006, and has raced out of control since then.

"One time I bought 30 copies from a store," Beitz told his local TV station KREM. "A lot of people just donate them to me, they send them from all over. I've got a few from Japan. I would buy them all off of Amazon, but the shipping costs $4 when the copy costs a penny. It's ridiculous."

Film crew finds Atari ET games in New Mexico archaeological dig

• Director Zack Penn says 'hundreds' of cartridges found
• Game's commercial failure lead to Atari's 1980s downfall
A documentary film production company has found buried in a New Mexico landfill hundreds of the Atari ET game cartridges that some call the worst video game ever made.

Film director Zak Penn showed one ET cartridge retrieved from the site and said hundreds more were found in the mounds of trash and dirt scooped by a backhoe.

About 200 residents and game enthusiasts gathered early on Saturday in southeastern New Mexico to watch backhoes and bulldozers dig through the concrete-covered landfill in search of up to a million discarded copies of “ET The Extraterrestrial” that the game's maker wanted to hide forever.

"I feel pretty relieved and psyched that they actually got to see something," said Penn, as members of the production team sifted through the mounds of trash, pulling out boxes, games and other Atari products.

Crack cocaine and heroin hidden inside "Kinder Egg plastic inserts" have been found by police on a Manchester street.

The capsules, which usually contain a plastic toy, were discovered by officers on patrol on St Mary's Hall Road in Crumpsall on Monday.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said it was "a surprise" to find the Class A drugs inside.

He added that it had been a "disappointment" that the capsules had not contained a toy.

Ottawa Police arrested a 62-year-old man this morning, after complaints about an adult male exposing himself at Mooney’s Bay Park.

Donald Popadick has been charged with Indecent Act and Mischief.

Police say they had several complaints since mid-April about a man exposing himself.

Around 9 a.m. this morning, they were alerted to another call of someone on a pathway in the park.  Police were nearby and arrested Popadick, who will appear in court Wednesday.

Artist who tied rooster to penis in Paris guilty of sexual exhibitionism

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/france/10808967/Artist-who-tied-rooster-to-penis-in-Paris-guilty-of-sexual-exhibitionism.html (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/france/10808967/Artist-who-tied-rooster-to-penis-in-Paris-guilty-of-sexual-exhibitionism.html)

Quote
A South African performance artist who tied a live rooster to his penis during an impromptu open-air show near the Eiffel Tower was found guilty yesterday of “sexual exhibitionism”. However the Paris court did not impose a sentence.

Last September Steven Cohen danced on the French capital’s Trocadero Plaza dressed in a corset, high heels, long red gloves and an elaborate feathered headdress with a rooster attached to his penis by a ribbon.

Under the amused and perplexed gaze of tourists, including a group of nuns, the spectacle lasted only a few moments before police arrested Mr Cohen, dragging him across the plaza, rooster attached.

Mr Cohen’s lawyer said she was “relieved”.

“This is a rather measured decision,” said lawyer Agnès Tricoire. “In my opinion, this case should never have gone to court.”

In a March interview with Le Figaro newspaper, Mr Cohen said authorities had “no understanding of what art is, what performance is”.

“If I’m found guilty ... I will see it as a failure of French justice,” said Mr Cohen, who has lived in France for about 10 years.

Prosecutors had asked for a €1,000 (£822) fine.

Cohen is known for “interventions in the public realm”, according to his biography. Wearing an illuminated chandelier tutu, he once walked through a squatters’ camp in Johannesburg while it was being demolished.

He told the newspaper the Paris piece was a reaction to an increasingly homophobic, xenophobic and anti-Semitic world.

“In showing the most intimate part of me, I’m saying: I’m male, I’m Jewish, I’m queer, I’m white,” he said.

He said the rooster, named Franck, was not harmed during the performance. The animal was chosen “because it’s the emblem of France”.

His car crossed the center line and crashed head-on into an SUV, according to police.
Both vehicles crashed into the tunnel walls and a pickup truck crashed into the Camry.
Four people were injured and were taken by ambulance to a hospital. Police said none of the injuries was life-threatening.

some people hold their breaths in tunnels as part of a game or superstition.
The tunnel, called the Dennis L. Edwards Tunnel, goes through the Northern Oregon Coast Range mountains. It's 772 feet long, meaning that a car traveling at the posted speed limit of 55 mph would get through it in about 10 seconds.

[url]http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/05/28/sonya-fletcher-home-strip-club_n_5404797.html[/url] ([url]http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/05/28/sonya-fletcher-home-strip-club_n_5404797.html[/url])

A woman allegedly ran an illegal strip club out of her Virginia home,
a tipster... complained to police that there were strippers inside, and that drinks were a whopping $2 apiece.
When police raided the home, they found 11 bottles of liquor, 16 cans of Bud Light, three packs of plastic cups and two "marijuana roaches." 
Sonya Fletcher, 36 and 43-year-old Jeffrey Pope, were arrested on May 3.
Fletcher used the rented home to throw parties in which she and several other women stripped and served food and alcohol

why should anyone give a fuck? sad stuff. no, i wouldn't ever use such a "service" but i really don't care about such low level criminality. so there.


She's probably in an HOA.

Carl
No way.  Those Nazi HOA committees wouldn't let that happen more than once.  They might not know about the stripping and alcohol, but there's no way they'd let cars park in the empty lot!!!

A man and woman living together in the community of Silver Valley in North Carolina will have to look for a new home after their house was completely lost to a fire early Monday morning. As WGHP FOX8 reports, it appears the incident was avoidable – the man, whose name has not been given, started the fire after he tried blowing his nose while smoking at the same time.

WGHP spoke with officials who say the incident happened at 3 AM. The tissue the man was blowing his nose into caught fire and then his attempts to stomp out the fire before it spread failed. Neither the man nor the woman he lives with were harmed, and the fire was out by 5 AM.

Man arrested in Australia for driving with pliers instead of steering wheel

We'll be the first to say that taking short cuts to keep a car on the road isn't a good practice, but sometimes, people take it too far. No, we're not talking about using a coat hanger for a throttle linkage, or driving on bald tires for one more week, even though the cords are showing. We're talking about driving without a steering wheel and using locking grip pliers clamped around the steering column shaft to navigate, which is just what one man has been caught doing in Adelaide, Australia, the Daily Mail reports.

The unnamed 38-year-old man's Monday morning commute was interrupted when police pulled him over for driving erratically with two flat tires, and they were surprised to find him holding the pliers instead of a wheel. He was arrested and charged with many offenses, including driving without a license in an unregistered vehicle, uninsured while under the influence of illegal drugs and more. Police also said they believe he was involved in a hit-and-run accident.

There are many things one can learn from this man's mistakes, which can be summed up in two words: Drive safely. And that includes taking good care of your car.

Masked woman scales scaffolding

The Argus: Masked woman scales scaffolding Masked woman scales scaffolding

A masked woman thought to be carrying an imitation pistol caused a major disturbance in a busy shopping street after climbing up scaffolding, apparently to sunbathe.

Police officers spent three hours trying to coax the woman down from the four-storey Garnet House in St George's Road, Brighton yesterday.

Eye witnesses told how the woman was acting strangely while on the scaffolding and removed her clothes and put a dead seagull on her head.

Eventually officers detained a woman and got her into police van at about 1pm yesterday - more than two hours after they were called to the street.

She was arrested on suspicion of being in possession of an imitation firearm and public order offences.

Those in St George's Road at the time described how up to seven police cars, a police van and two fire engines attended the scene.

There was a subsequent road closure causing major disruptions for a number of local businesses in the street.

Steven Ashwood, owner of St James Furnishing carpet shop in St George's Road, said: “The woman climbed up the scaffolding and started sunbathing on the top.

Automatic Sperm Extractor Introduced Into A Chinese Hospital
Quote
A Chinese hospital in Nanjing, capital of Jiangsu Province, has introduced a new machine that makes sperm donation even easier- an automatic sperm extractor. I’m all for hands-free technology, but have scientists gone a little too far with this invention?

The effortless machine features a massage pipe that can be adjusted to suit the height of the user. All the gentleman has to do is plug in the frequency, amplitude and temperature and off they go. It’s also fitted with a small screen for those feeling uninspired.

According to the director of the urology department of the hospital, the machine is designed to help individuals that are finding it difficult to retrieve sperm the old fashioned way. We're not entirely convinced that standing in a room shared by many other people and being milked like a cow is going to help, but their efforts are commendable. Here’s to technology.

Check out a video of the machine here:

Apparently there are some issues with the boy's safety in the home. At least thats what they said on the news today.


We thought we had lost our youngest, that she had wandered out of the house late one night in the dark. Maybe 3 or 4 years old?

Turns out she had silently passed by us in the hallway while we were in the bathroom, and crawled up into our King-Sized bed and absolutely disappeared deep in all the pillows and heavy comforters. Somehow she pulled the blankets right up over her head and went to sleep, and there wasn't a wrinkle nor a bump to show that she was in there. Looked like the bed was just made perfectly.

We had cops out circling the block, shining searchlights, we went through the house 10+ times, and just before they called out the search and rescue team, I looked through the house again, was looking under a bedside table with a long drape over it, to the floor, thinking maybe she hid under it, when I saw a tiny wisp of her long hair just barely sticking out of the duvet cover.

Honestly if you stood a foot further down the bed, she was invisible. Totally invisible.

Man were we freaked out for a good half hour or so.

Kids. Wow.

Yep.  Went to many missing kid calls where they were eventually found somewhere in the home.  Sometimes they were overlooked one or two times before someone found them.  We came up with policy back in the 80's where an officer was assigned to remain in the home and keep searching until evidence was produced showing there was no way the kid was there.  Many times the parents said they had already searched the home yet we found the kid hiding/sleeping somewhere from common observations.

Puritans, Goths, avant-garde artists, hell-raising poets and fashion icon Coco Chanel all saw something special in it. Now black, that most enigmatic of colours, has become even darker and more mysterious.

A British company has produced a "strange, alien" material so black that it absorbs all but 0.035 per cent of visual light, setting a new world record. To stare at the "super black" coating made of carbon nanotubes – each 10,000 times thinner than a human hair – is an odd experience. It is so dark that the human eye cannot understand what it is seeing. Shapes and contours are lost, leaving nothing but an apparent abyss.

If it was used to make one of Chanel's little black dresses, the wearer's head and limbs might appear to float incorporeally around a dress-shaped hole.

. Lincoln is the only president to have obtained a patent.

 Benjamin Franklin isn’t the only American political leader who demonstrated an inventive mind. After being aboard a steamboat that ran aground on low shoals and had to unload its cargo, Lincoln, who loved tinkering with machines, designed a method for keeping vessels afloat when traversing shallow waters through the use of empty metal air chambers attached to their sides. For his design, Lincoln obtained Patent No. 6,469 in 1849.

Harrison, who died in 2001, spent his final days in Los Angeles and because he was a noted gardener, the tree was planted in his memory.

Man's Road Rage Gets Him Run Over by His Own Pickup Truck

Joseph H. Carl was driving home from a bar in Gainesville, Fla. Tuesday when he rear-ended a car that was stopped at a red light. Drunk and enraged, he got out of his pickup truck and began banging on the windows of the car.

The driver of the car justifiably sped off.  Carl's truck began rolling because he hadn't put it in park. 
He extended his arms in an attempt to stop the truck but it ran him over.

Carl smelled strongly of alcohol when the police arrived, and refused treatment from paramedics. There was a cold, opened Miller High Life and several other empty beer cans inside the truck, but he insisted to the cops that he didn't drink and drive. When they asked about the empties, he reportedly told them he "was only drinking while he drove home."

But when the social-media specialist for a private Provo-based English language learning center wrote a blog explaining homophones, he was let go for creating the perception that the school promoted a gay agenda.

Tim Torkildson says after he wrote the blog on the website of his employer, Nomen Global Language Center, his boss and Nomen owner Clarke Woodger, called him into his office and told him he was fired.

As Torkildson tells it, Woodger said he could not trust him and that the blog about homophones was the last straw.

"Now our school is going to be associated with homosexuality," Woodger complained, according to Torkildson, who posted the exchange on his Facebook page

Recently, Freitas hired a dozen college interns to help him bring some logic to his obsession. In the warehouse office, seven of them were busy at individual workstations; one reached into a crate of LPs marked “PW #1,425” and fished out a record. She removed the disc from its sleeve and cleaned the vinyl with a soft cloth before handing the album to the young man next to her. He ducked into a black-curtained booth and snapped a picture of the cover. Eventually the record made its way through the assembly line of interns, and its information was logged into a computer database. An intern typed the name of the artist (the Animals), the title (“Animalism”), year of release (1966), record label (MGM) and — referencing the tag on the crate the record was pulled from — noted that it once belonged to Paulette Weiss, a New York music critic whose collection of 4,000 albums Freitas recently purchased.
For the truly compulsive hobbyist, there comes a time when a collection gathers weight — metaphysical, existential weight.

The interns can collectively catalog about 500 records per day — a Sisyphean rate, as it happens, because Freitas has been burying them with new acquisitions. Between June and November of last year, more than a dozen 40-foot-long shipping containers arrived, each holding more than 100,000 newly purchased records. Though the warehouse was originally the home of his second business — a company that provides sound and lighting systems for rock concerts and other big events — these days the sound boards and light booms are far outnumbered by the vinyl.

Cats are one of the top threats to US wildlife, killing billions of animals each year, a study suggests.

The authors estimate they are responsible for the deaths of between 1.4 and 3.7 billion birds and 6.9-20.7 billion mammals annually.

Writing in Nature Communications, the scientists said stray and feral cats were the worst offenders.

However, they added that pet cats also played a role and that owners should do more to reduce their impact.

The authors concluded that more animals are dying at the claws of cats in the United States than in road accidents, collisions with buildings or poisonings.

The domestic cat's killer instinct has been well documented on many islands around the world.

Felines accompanying their human companions have gone on to prey on the local wildlife, and they have been blamed for the global extinction of 33 species.

But their impact on mainland areas has been harder to chart.

To find out more, researchers from the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI) and the US Fish and Wildlife Service carried out a review of studies that had previously looked at the predatory prowess of cats.

    Our study suggests that they are the top threat to US wildlife”

Dr Pete Marra SCBI

Their analysis revealed that the cat killings were much higher than previous studies had suggested: they found that they had killed more than four times as many birds as has been previously estimated.

Birds native to the US, such as the American Robin, were most at risk, and mice, shrews, voles, squirrels and rabbits were the mammals most likely to be killed.

Dr Pete Marra from the SCBI said: "Our study suggests that they are the top threat to US wildlife."

The team said that "un-owned" cats, which they classified as strays, feral cats and farm cats, were killing about three times as many animals as pet cats. However, they said pet cats were still killing significant numbers of animals, and that their owners should do more to limit the impact.

Dr Marra said: "We hope that the large amount of wildlife mortality indicated by our research convinces some cat owners to keep their cats indoors and that it alerts policymakers, wildlife managers and scientists to the large magnitude of wildlife mortality caused by cat predation."

A spokeswoman for the animal welfare charity the RSPCA said that a properly fitted collar and bell could reduce a cat's success when hunting by at least a third.

Saudi Man Dies After Allegedly Trying To Sodomize A Donkey

Quote
The bizarre story of a man who died after trying to have sex with a donkey is circulating all over Middle Eastern news sites.

Lebanese website Beiruting recently reported that a Saudi Sheikh man died after attempting to sodomize a donkey. But other sites have picked it up as well. Reports say that the man tied the donkey to his car, took off his pants and attempted the have sex with the animal.

The donkey, however, was not about to let that happen, and allegedly, it proceeded to kick the Sheikh man in the face following by three strong kicks to the chest. The man fell to the ground and allegedly suffered for some time before dying next to the angry animal.

When police arrived, they reportedly discovered the man’s body and were able to determine what had happened.

It’s impossible to confirm this story's accuracy and it sounds really out there, but it’s starting to pick up steam online. Who knows? Stranger things have happened.

The fornication part was added afterwards. Original news item was from 2009.

Virginia declares war on testicles
Dangling some furry dice from a rear view mirror in one thing – but in Virginia, one lawmaker has launched a crusade against decorating a truck’s trailer hitch with a large pair of rubber testicles.

A man gets to grips with his giant testicles

State lawmaker Lionel Spruill introduced a bill Tuesday to ban displaying rubber replicas of male genitalia on vehicles.

He says it’s a safety issue, because the giant rubber testicles could distract other drivers.

Under his measure, displaying the ornamentation on a motor vehicle would be a misdemeanor punishable by a maximum fine of £128 ($250).

He said the idea came from a constituent, whose young daughter spotted an example of the trailer hitch adornment, and asked her father to explain it.

‘”I didn’t know what to tell her,'” Spruill said the constituent told him before Spruill vowed to stop such displays.

‘I said, “Sir, I’m going to be a laughing-stock, but I’m going to do it,”‘ said the laughing-stock.

The Virginia General Assembly has some experience with offbeat bills. Three years ago, it drew widespread attention with an unsuccessful effort to outlaw baggy pants worn so low they expose underwear.

Spruill, 61, said the indignity of the ‘droopy drawers’ debate would not deter him. He said he will not hesitate to bring a set of $24.95 trailer testicles with him for a legislative show-and-tell.

‘I’m going to do it,’ Spruill told a handful of reporters after Tuesday’s House session adjourned.

‘I’m going to bring them out here and show them to you till they tell me to stop.’

Woman who went on 'Dating Naked' reality show filed a $10 million lawsuit because they showed her 'too' naked.
http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/08/21/dating-naked-lawsuit/ (http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/08/21/dating-naked-lawsuit/)

New York model Jessie Nizewitz, 28, says the (show) flashed her crotch during one segment where she playfully wrestles with a date on the beach. Viewers noticed the unexpected reveal despite it being a very brief shot, and Nizewitz says she’s been humiliated on social media. Producers had allegedly assured Nizewitz that her genitals would be fully blurred.

The suit filed late Wednesday claims uncensored images of Nizewitz were passed around Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr after airing on VH1. “Plaintiff… was shocked, horrified and outraged to observe this intrusion into her privacy for all to see,” reads the suit. “Immediately Plaintiff became subject to ridicule by those watching. … Plaintiff has suffered and continues to suffer extreme emotional distress, mental anguish, humiliation and embarrassment. … Defendants knew or reasonably should have known that broadcasting an individual’s vagina and anus on national cable television would cause substantial and severe emotional distress.”

Adding insult to alleged injury, Nizewitz also noted in a New York Post interview that a man she was dating never called her again after the show aired.

SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) -

A Summerville High School student who says he was arrested and suspended after writing about killing a dinosaur using a gun in a class assignment has hired a lawyer.

Attorney David Aylor, who is representing 16-year-old Alex Stone, said his client's arrest over a creative writing assignment on Tuesday was "completely absurd," and is seeking to appeal the suspension and "proceed with the legal issues of [Stone's] arrest."

“This is a perfect example of ‘political correctness' that has exceeded the boundaries of common sense," Aylor said in a statement released on Thursday."Students were asked to write about themselves and a creative Facebook status update – just days into the new school year – and my client was arrested and suspended after a school assignment."

The Summerville Police Department who arrested Stone on Tuesday on a charge of disorderly conduct is disputing Stone's account of his arrest.

"The information that is being reported is grossly incorrect in reference to what led to the juvenile being charged," said Capt. Jon Rogers in a Summeville police statement released on Thursday."The charges do not stem from anything involving a dinosaur or writing assignment, but the student's conduct."

Race between pigeons and bees

At the village of Hamme, in Westphalia, a most singular wager has been made and won. In the sporting records of Europe there has been no such race, and its result will open for us quite a new chapter on relative speed.

Everyone knows the rate at which pigeons fly, and almost a king’s ransom has changed hands on the issue of their speed. The other day, the race was between pigeons and bees.

A pigeon fancier and a bee master each backed  his favourite racer. The course was three miles and a half – the distance between two villages of Rhynern and Hamme, and a dovecot, which happened to be a hive, was the selected winning post.

The race was intended to be level, but in effect the bees were handicapped. It was very difficult to identify them, and though rolling them in flour before they started on their course made them easily recognisable on their arrival, it must have somewhat retarded their flight.

Nearly everyone backed the pigeons, and there was great excitement in the ring which assembled around the winning post.

The first bee came in twenty-five seconds before the first pigeon and three other bees before the second. The others were not classed.

Staff at the Crown pub in Lea, Herefordshire, were not allowed to leave the premises during the search and a policeman stood guard during the early morning raid.

Bemused Di, 54, said: "I have been shown a picture of the missing cup - if it had been here we would have thrown it on the fire because it is not whole any more.

"The only thing here that looks like it is an old salad bowl."

The cup is said to have been brought to Britain by Joseph of Arimathea, the founder of a religious settlement in Glastonbury during the mediaeval period.

The grail then came into the possession of a group of Somerset monks who later fled with the cup to Strata Florida Abbey, near Tregaron in in Ceredigion.

Hell, apparently, hath no fury like a scorned and drunken babysitter.

Police in Fort Pierce, Fla., say they arrested a 22-year-woman who stabbed the man she babysits for because he refused to have sex.

Shakieria Anquanette Shan Long now faces felony battery charges after becoming enraged that Eugene Sylvester shunned her screaming advances, according to a police report obtained by the Smoking Gun website.

After both were drinking at neighborhood barbecue, Long followed Sylvester home, "screaming that she wanted the victim to have sex with her," the report said.

Sylvester refused, making Long even more angry, the report said.

When he went into his bedroom and closed the door, Long stormed in armed with a knife and began "jabbing" at his throat, a witness told police. The witness grabbed a towel and helped Sylvester leave the home, he said.

While the two were walking down the street, Long chased after them and began punching Sylvester in the face, the police report said.

Sylvester received stitches in his neck at a nearby hospital, where he told police he didn't want to press charges against Long, who babysits his children, because she was intoxicated and has mental health issues.

"No," the coroner replied.

"Well, then, did you listen for a heart beat?"

The coroner answered, "No."

"Did you check for respiration? Breathing?", asked the attorney.

Again the coroner replied, "No."

"Ah," the attorney said, "So when you signed the death certificate you had not taken any steps to make sure the man was dead, had you?"

The coroner rolled his eyes, and shot back "Counselor, at the time I signed the death certificate the man's brain was sitting in a jar on my desk. But I can see your point. For all I know he could be out there practicing law somewhere."

According to charges filed in Ramsey County, 34-year-old Blaine resident John Lind had a crush on one of his coworkers at Beisswenger's in New Brighton. That's not criminal. What is, however, is the beyond-belief sick way he expressed his affection.

On more than one occasion, Lind allegedly ejaculated into her coffee. Not only that... but she unknowingly drank the dastardly concoction.


"I knew it. I have drank his semen," she said, according to the complaint. "I just thought it was spoiled milk."

Quote
A US massage therapist has gone to extreme lengths to become a reality TV star, undergoing surgery to add a third breast to her chest.

The Florida woman, who goes by the name Jasmine Tridevil, said she spent $20,000 on the procedure a few months ago after finally finding a doctor willing to perform the operation.

This was in the news, so it must be true.
http://metro.co.uk/2014/09/28/baby-transformed-into-a-full-grown-man-in-seconds-mother-claims-4884853/ (http://metro.co.uk/2014/09/28/baby-transformed-into-a-full-grown-man-in-seconds-mother-claims-4884853/)


Baby 'grew into full-grown man in seconds'

An African newspaper has secured what could be the biggest story of the century… after reporting on a two-month-old baby who grew into a man in seconds.

The Daily Observer has regaled its readers with the tale of Smith Freeman, the son of 16-year-old Lorpu Kollie.

Lorpu claims that as she was walking to a farm with her baby, he spoke to her, demanding that she untie a baby sling and put him down. The teenager obliged.

Marcus N Malayea, the journalist on the story, then wrote: ‘As soon as she put Smith down, the two-month-old boy instantaneously began to grow into a full-grown man!’

Apparently, Smith was unhappy that his grandmother had been continually insulting him.

‘He even threatened to bring incense and garlic into the home,’ the exclusive added.

Once his transformation was complete, the ‘man’ apparently ran into the bush, and hasn’t been seen since.

Lorpu has insisted that her son ‘did not have any scar or deformity on his body that could convince community dwellers that the baby was somehow belonging to the dark world’.

Smith’s father, Watson Freeman, said his son’s disappearance was ‘incredible and mind-blowing’.

But amazingly, the family’s main concern is how Lorpu may be stigmatised in the community by what has happened to her son, and ‘drive away any man who may wish to take her as a future wife’.

Hen Do-=bride's last chance to get really drunk with her friends before she gets married.

Anyway, here's a new offering: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-30111525 (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-30111525)

A hotel that "fined" a couple £100 who described it as a "rotten, stinking hovel" will refund the money.

Tony and Jan Jenkinson posted the comments on the Trip Advisor website after spending a night at the Broadway Hotel, for which they paid £36.

The couple, from Whitehaven, had the £100 charge levied to their credit card two days later.

The Blackpool hotel has now said it will refund the money and vowed to improve the facilities.

It introduced the policy of charging people who wrote bad reviews to prevent "customers from defaming" the business, a spokesman said.

In a statement, the hotel said: "We exercised this policy with Mr and Mrs Jenkinson as we felt extremely upset by their actions and insulting comments towards our staff.

"We agree there is room for improvement at our establishment and we desperately want to turn things around."

The hotel has now cancelled its policy after Blackpool Trading Standards warned it could be illegal.

Broadway bosses accused some "disgruntled customers" of abusing the review capability of TripAdvisor.

"We have found that customers will threaten us with bad reviews simply to gain a discount," the hotel said.


I'm sure the place is fine, if you don't mind filthy rooms, peeling wallpaper, black mould, no hot water and a chef who drinks cider for breakfast.

Here's my favourite so far:
“Family stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We stayed at the Broadway overnight on the 17/10/14 after reading the review I was a bit worried and even took my flee spray, but it was ok bedding was clean breakfast was not to bad and it was ok for a overnight stay. Yes it does need alot of TLC and it could be a great hotel staff very nice fire alarm went of twice but that was because they had a smoke machine going in the bar ?? Overall not has bad as the other reviews.

Brits took to social media to express their outrage at the company’s demonization of social housing residents.

No, you can't hold a fart in until it disappears


This might seem obvious, but for whatever reason, people wonder about this question. At times, after holding in a fart for a while for social reasons, it can seem to disappear.

However, this isn't actually possible. It might seem to vanish because you stop being conscious of it, and it leaks out gradually, but the physics of flatulence are pretty straightforward. A fart is a bubble of gas, and there's ultimately nowhere for it to go besides out of your anus

Police: Mom posts pics of son dressed as girl on Facebook as form of discipline

WINTER GARDEN, Fla. A mother and her roommate are facing charges after they forced her 10-year-old son to dress up like a girl to humiliate him as a form of discipline, Winter Garden police said.
Christle Prado and Keith Driscoll were charged with cruelty toward children and infliction of mental injury on a child, police said.
Authorities said police found out about the case after the boy's relative saw the photos on Facebook of the boy crying while dressed as a girl and wearing makeup.

1 - not a fan of off-body-carry (carrier can't have at-arm-length access to it at all times; too easy access by others)

Some commentary on the sad issue:

http://bearingarms.com/put-holster-toddler-kills-mother-via-negligent-discharge-idaho/ (http://bearingarms.com/put-holster-toddler-kills-mother-via-negligent-discharge-idaho/)

Full article at the link

I hate off-body carry with an unbridled passion, and personally feel that if you can’t carry a weapon on your body, that you should not be carrying a firearm at all.

I simply don’t feel that purses, personal organizers, etc have the requisite weapon security, even though some off-body systems do look very nice.

Unfortunately, some women eschew even these quality purses designed to securely carry a handgun in a secure compartment, and instead opt to drop their handgun in a regular purse with little to no weapon retention capability at all. They then compound the risk of the weapon being unsecured, by putting their purse with an unsecured weapon in it nearby, instead of keeping it on their body away from intruding hands, such as those of inquisitive children.

When it rains it pours. 

"Morton Salt facility partially collapses."
     
Chicago police and fire responded Tuesday to a partial building collapse at a Morton Salt storage facility on 1301 N. Elston.

A wall of the building collapsed, and a mountain of salt poured onto several nearby vehicles.

Fire officials said workers at the facility apparently piled the salt  higher than they were supposed to, and the resulting pressure caused the south wall to collapse.

The building was last inspected by the city in March of 2014. It has an outstanding violation for failure to maintain the roof in sound condition.

The condition of the entire building

There were no reported injuries. The salt buried at least 11 cars next door in a McGrath Acura dealership lot.

51 years after wreck, 7-inch car part found in arm
Quote
CREVE COEUR, Mo. (AP) — Fifty-one years ago, Arthur Lampitt of Granite City, Illinois, smashed his 1963 Thunderbird into a truck. This week during surgery in suburban St. Louis, a 7-inch turn signal lever from that T-Bird was removed from his left arm.

Dr. Timothy Lang removed the lever Wednesday during a 45-minute operation. Lampitt, now 75, is recovering at home.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch ([url]http://bit.ly/1EOtGa6[/url] ([url]http://bit.ly/1EOtGa6[/url]) ) reports that the accident broke Lampitt's hip, drawing attention away from the arm, which healed.

A decade or so ago, his arm set off a metal detector at a courthouse. An X-ray showed a slender object the length of a pencil, but since it caused no pain or hardship, Lampitt was told to let it be.

He was moving concrete blocks a few weeks ago when the arm began to hurt for the first time.

"Everything was fine until it started to get bigger," Lampitt's wife, Betty, said. "The arm started bulging."

Lampitt decided to have surgery. He initially wasn't sure what was in the arm. He wondered if perhaps a medical instrument had been left during the emergency room visit in 1963.

He unearthed a collection of old photos of the mangled Thunderbird taken by a friend at the scene. He noticed the metal blinker lever was missing from the left side of the steering column. He figured that was it, and surgery at City Place Surgery Center in Creve Coeur, Missouri, confirmed it.

"Seven inches long," Lang told Betty.

"Oh, my God," Betty said.

Lang said a protective pocket grew around the lever.

"We see all kinds of foreign objects like nails or pellets, but usually not this large, usually not a turn signal from a 1963 T-Bird," Lang said. "Something this large often gets infected."

Lampitt wasn't sure what he'd do with the lever — maybe make a key chain out of it.

"We'll figure out something, I am sure," he said.

Brazilian man rides motorcycle 60 miles to hospital with knife in his head


A BRAZILIAN man rode his motorcycle 60 miles to the nearest hospital after being stabbed in the head at a party.

Juacelo Nunes rode for more than two hours along jungle roads from Agua Branca to Teresina, Brazil, with a 30cm knife sticking out the side of his head.

The motorcycle taxi driver suffered from damaged nerves and veins after the blade embedded itself into Nunes’ upper jaw, narrowly missing his left eye.

Nunes allegedly never lost consciousness on the ride and eventually underwent three hours of emergency surgery to remove the knife.

Gilberto Albuquerque, the director of the hospital in Teresina, said: ‘The knife passed through several nerves and veins, structures that can quickly kill a patient.’

The 39-year-old victim, who is ‘recovering surprisingly well’, said: ‘I thought I would die and only came to believe when I saw what happened to me, because if someone told me I would not have believed it.'

Now three months old, Kappo Masa is not the most expensive restaurant in New York. That distinction belongs to Mr. Takayama’s home base, Masa, in the Time Warner Center. (Price of dinner for one before tax, tip and drinks: $450.) Still, it is expensive in a way that’s hard to forget either during or after the meal. The cost of eating at Kappo Masa is so brutally, illogically, relentlessly high, and so out of proportion to any pleasure you may get, that large numbers start to seem like uninvited and poorly behaved guests at the table.

Nazi super cows: British farmer forced to destroy half his murderous herd of bio-engineered Heck cows after they try to kill staff

http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/british-farmer-forced-to-turn-half-his-murderous-herd-of-nazi-cows-into-sausages-9958988.html (http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/british-farmer-forced-to-turn-half-his-murderous-herd-of-nazi-cows-into-sausages-9958988.html)

Hitler’s drive to produce the perfect Aryan race was not confined to people – it also extended to a specially bred herd of Nazi-engineered cows, which have turned out to be so aggressive that a UK farmer has been forced to turn half of them into sausages.

Derek Gow imported more than a dozen Heck super cows to his West Devon farm in 2009, nearly a century after they were first created in the 1920s.

But, Farmer Gow, who is the only British farmer to own the breed, has been forced to kill seven of his herd because the cows were so aggressive they repeatedly tried to kill his staff.

“We have had to cut our herd down to six because some of them were incredibly aggressive and we just couldn’t handle them,” said Farmer Gow, who said the meat made “very tasty” sausages that tasted a bit like venison.

“The ones we had to get rid of would just attack you any chance they could. They would try to kill anyone. Dealing with that was not fun at all. They are by far and away the most aggressive animals I have ever worked with,” he said.

A conman was branded a danger to public health after he was caught selling bottles filled with urine as whisky to tourists.
Nicholas Stewart was arrested after he was seen trying to sell the one and a half litre bottles of fake whisky and vodka to holidaymakers for £10, a court heard.

Scientific analysis revealed some drinks merely contained flat cola but in others they found evidence of human waste.

Soldier Surprises Wife With Romantic Breakfast, She Surprises Him Back By Shooting Him

http://www.inquisitr.com/1745325/soldier-wife-shooting/ (http://www.inquisitr.com/1745325/soldier-wife-shooting/)

Some days it really doesn't pay to get out of bed.

A solider at Fort Bragg in Fayetteville, North Carolina, tried to bring his wife a surprise breakfast in bed Friday morning, but as his reward for the romantic gesture, he found himself in the hospital with a gunshot wound to the chest. Police believe the shooting was simply a mistake, but they continue to investigate the circumstances of the shooting.

Here’s what happened. Earlier Friday morning, 28-year-old Zia Segule left the home he shares with his wife Tiffany on the 1100 block of Christina Street in Fayetteville. Tiffany stayed in bed, catching some extra sleep.

But at about 10:15 a.m., Zia Segule unexpectedly came back home. He carried a take-out breakfast to surprise his sleeping wife. At least, he thought she was sleeping.

According to police, the soldier did not attempt to sneak into the house. He simply entered through the front door as he normally would. But in the interim between his departure and return, 27-year-old Tiffany had apparently activated the house’s security alarm system.

When Zia Segule walked through the door, the alarm went off.

The police say they still are not sure whether or not Zia attempted to tell his wife that he was home, or if he tried to shut off the alarm. All they say they know for sure is that Tiffany — perhaps nervous due to a series of break-ins in the area recently — pulled out a gun and fired one round sight unseen, through her closed bedroom door.

The shot struck her husband in the chest.

Fayetteville Police Department Spokesperson Antoine Kincaide said that the pistol-packing wife was “doing what she thought was right” and acting in what she thought was self-defense.

“She woke up. She armed herself and she fired a shot through her bedroom door hitting her husband in the chest,” Kincaide recounted.

“Being a female by herself, there are a lot of people out there doing harm, so you have to do what you have to do to protect yourself,” said one understanding neighbor, Jose Estrella. “Even at night, I wake up at night and say ‘Okay, did I just hear something?’ But I wouldn’t open fire just like that.”

The accidental shooting certainly could have been a lot worse, Just before the New Year’s holiday, a toddler in Idaho got his hands on a gun owned by his mother as they shopped in a Walmart, accidentally shooting her to death.

Soldier Zia Segule was apparently doing well despite the shooting at the hands of his wife. His only comment to the media was, “I’m good.” But doctors said he was walking under his own power as well as speaking.

An American terrorism commentator has apologised for describing Birmingham as a "Muslim-only city" where non-Muslims "don't go" during a Fox News interview.

Steven Emerson told the channel that in London "Muslim religious police" beat "anyone who doesn't dress according to Muslim, religious Muslim attire".

He later issued an apology for his "terrible error".

His comments have come in for ridicule, with the hashtag #FoxNewsFacts trending on Twitter.

Mr Emerson, who founded a group called The Investigative Project on Terrorism, was giving his perspective on the terror attacks in France to Fox presenter Jeanine Pirro.

Birmingham City Council said Mr Emerson's "curious" comments had no foundation, and welcomed his apology, while Birmingham Edgbaston MP Gisela Stuart described the remarks as "stupid".

A religious scholar in Saudi Arabia reportedly issued a fatwa against building snowmen and snow animals in the country, saying it goes against Islam.

Mohammad Saleh Al Minjed said people may not build any snowmen or snow models of animals, Gulf News reported. He said that any snow replica of a living being–even if it is for fun–is not allowed. Saudis can build lifeless (read: boring) things, such as fruit and buildings.

“We have snow for fleeting days, maybe even hours, and there is always someone who wants to rob us of the joy and the fun,” he posted. “It seems that the only thing left for us is to sit down and drink coffee,” said Mishaal, an angry blogger.

Another one a few days late. As if banning transsexuals will improve the frankly lethal Russian driving. Me, I sat ban Russians from driving. They are shit at it.

Russia has passed a controversial law banning transvestites, transsexuals and people with other "disorders" from driving, prompting sharp criticism from rights activists, including a prominent Kremlin advisor.

The legislation, which took effect this week, says its aims at lowering the country's high death rate from road accidents.

It prohibits people diagnosed with a range of medical, personality and gender identity disorders from taking the wheel.

Though these include blindness and epilepsy, it also lists transvestites and transsexuals as well as people with sexual fetishes, voyeurs, paedophiles, pathological gamblers and kleptomaniacs

Passed by government decree signed by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, the law follows other legislation viewed as discriminating against people because of their sexual orientation.

Since returning to the Kremlin for a third term in 2012, President Vladimir Putin has listed "healthy family" and traditional values as priorities and pushed an increasingly conservative agenda.

This has included a law banning any so-called "propaganda" or display of homosexuality in front of minors, which was decried by rights activists, Western government and stars including Madonna as a crackdown on gays and lesbians.

Men who post too many selfies might be revealing narcissistic traits

http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/life_and_entertainment/2015/01/09/all-abuzz-selfies.html (http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/life_and_entertainment/2015/01/09/all-abuzz-selfies.html)

Men who post too many selfies on their Facebook page might be telling you a bit about more their personality than they intended.

A study released this week by Ohio State University found that men who posted more selfies online scored higher on measures for narcissism and psychopathy.

Also, men who were more likely to edit their selfies before posting them scored higher in self-objectification, which is how a person prioritizes his appearance over other traits.

Lead author Jesse Fox, assistant professor of communication at Ohio State, said in a news release that the results don't mean men who post too many selfies are necessarily psychopaths, and that the men in the study all scored within normal range of behavior. It did mean the levels of these traits were higher than average.

The study was based on an online survey of 800 men, who were asked about their selfie behavior. The men were asked how many photos they posted and whether they edited the selfies.

So why no women?

Fox said the survey didn't include women, but follow-ups suggested that the research would also apply to women who posted a ton of selfies.

The paper was published in the Personality and Individual Differences journal.


Does this mean that the posters in the good morning stoners thread are all psychopaths?  :eek:  :lol:

Photographer Levi Bettweiser is the man behind the Rescued Film Project, an effort to find and rescue old and undeveloped rolls of film from the far corners of the world.

He recently came across one of his biggest finds so far: 31 undeveloped rolls of film shot by a single soldier during World War II.

Bettweiser tells us he found the film rolls in late 2014 at an auction in Ohio. About half the rolls were labeled with various location names (i.e. Boston Harbor, Lucky Strike Beach, LaHavre Harbor). “I know nothing about who shot the film or who it belonged to,” he says.

A five-year-old was billed for failing to attend a friend's birthday party - resulting in threats of legal action.

Alex Nash, from Cornwall, was invited to the party just before Christmas.

An invoice for £15.95 was sent by his schoolfriend's mother Julie Lawrence, who said Alex's non-attendance left her out of pocket and his parents had her details to tell her he was not going.

Alex's father Derek said he had been told he would be taken to the small claims court for refusing to pay.

Alex's parents, from Torpoint, had accepted an invitation to the party at a dry ski slope in Plymouth, Devon, just before Christmas.

However, they realised their son was double-booked and due to spend time with his grandparents, which he did.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Tariq Toran, the coach of the Central Illinois Xpress basketball team, presented his players with matching mouth guards for Christmas. He had made sure they all came in fluorescent green.

The Xpress were already drawing attention, having emerged as an unlikely force in the fifth-grade boys’ league at the Gym, a bustling basketball center here. In running their record to 8-1 through the first half of the season, the Xpress executed a motion offense and often overwhelmed the competition. But they really stood out for another reason.

“We’d walk in, and all the boys would be like, ‘We’re playing girls?’ ” said Anne Rupnik, a point guard. “Then we’d beat them. Some of them cried.”



Quote
A few of the parents expressed reservations when Mr. Toran broached the idea of entering the girls in a boys’ league. Dan Schrage said he was concerned that someone could be hurt; boys can be rough, after all. But Mr. Toran has seldom shielded his team from physical play, he said.

Mr. Toran recalled a game over the summer against a group of older girls who were determined to push his players around. Mr. Toran challenged his team to do something about it.

“Everybody go foul somebody on the next play,” he told the players in a huddle. “Really plaster them!”

The Xpress did as they were told — and the officials, for whatever reason, let them play on. The Xpress, having untapped some latent aggression, went on to win the tournament championship, Mr. Toran said.

EELS!!!

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-30961220 (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-30961220)

Customs officials in Bulgaria have seized two million live baby eels hidden in luggage.

Two Chinese men arriving from Madrid were detained at Sofia airport for trying to smuggle the eels in eight containers.

Officials said that the tiny eels, known as elvers, had been declared as food items.

The European eel is classified as a critically endangered species and cannot be exported outside the region.

Their sale is also heavily regulated within the EU.

Elvers are seen by some as a delicacy. Just 1kg (2.2lb) can fetch up to €1,300 (£1000; $1500) in Asia, according to customs officials

Police chief blogs about naked man walking on I-75

http://woodtv.com/2015/02/02/police-chief-blogs-about-naked-man-walking-on-i-75/ (http://woodtv.com/2015/02/02/police-chief-blogs-about-naked-man-walking-on-i-75/)

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (WOOD) — It sounds like a pretty unusual 911 call: A 53-year-old Bloomfield Hills man was spotted walking down busy I-75 Sunday while taking off his clothes.

Eventually, the man was strolling naked down the highway in Auburn Hills during a snowstorm wearing only his cowboy hat. A nearby motorist took cellphone video of the incident.

The man’s truck had gone into a ditch. Then, for an unknown reason, he began walking down the highway and shedding his clothes.

While the call may sound unusual, Auburn Hills Police Chief Doreen Olko said the incident is not that odd. Chief Olko writes a blog and posted a lengthy note about the incident Monday.

>>Online: Chief Olko’s blog post

Chief Olko said the sergeant and responding officers immediately recognized that they were probably dealing with a person suffering from “Excited Delirium Syndrome.”

“I don’t know if this man fit the entire profile but it is likely he fit enough of it to end up in this state. Their bodies overheat in an extreme way which is why they take off their clothes,” Olko wrote.

These individuals can be combative, and if they struggle with police, the body may overheat more and go into cardiac arrest.

“When the officers began to talk with him they realized he was delusional,” Olko wrote.

The officers were able to convince the man to get into the patrol car. On the way to the fire station, the man became unresponsive. When they got to the fire station, he became combative. But there was lots of help at the fire station, and paramedics were able to get him to the hospital.

No one was hurt.

“Because the officers recognized the true nature of the call, they may have saved his life,” wrote Olko.

It is unclear if charges will be filed against the man. Right now, police say they just want to make sure he gets the help he needs. He was recovering Monday.

Kid Suspended for Threatening to Wield The One Ring at School (http://www.oaoa.com/news/education/article_6b47c224-a8d2-11e4-8989-1f5b0d13dadd.html)

Quote
A Kermit parent said his fourth-grade student was suspended Friday for allegedly making a terroristic threat.

His father, Jason Steward, said the family had been to see “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” last weekend. His son brought a ring to his class at Kermit Elementary School and told another boy his magic ring could make the boy disappear.

Steward said the principal said threats to another child’s safety would not be tolerated – whether magical or not. Principal Roxanne Greer declined to comment on the matter.

“All student stuff is confidential,” Greer said. She referred a call from the Odessa American to Kermit ISD Superintendent Bill Boyd, who did not return a phone call.

Steward said he didn’t understand why his son was removed from school and why the district didn’t just send a letter home.

He said he requested that the school send him “something in writing” saying that the school suspended his son and why they suspended him. Steward was told the school would put the letter in the mail.

Steward said his son has attended Kermit Elementary since August. The 9-year-old has been in in-school suspension for referring to another student’s skin color and got in trouble for bringing a kids’ book about pregnancy to school.

WICHITA FALLS, Texas - A Wichita Falls man was arrested by a Wichita County Sheriff’s Office deputy Jan. 28 for refusing to leave the Wichita County Courthouse Annex while trying to pay his property tax in $1 bills.

According to the affidavit:

The deputy was at the Annex, 600 Scott Street, just after 2 p.m. when Wichita County Tax Assessor Collector Tommy Smyth asked Timothy Andrew Norris, 27, to leave the tax office. Smyth accused Norris of disrupting the operation and efficiency of the tax office by attempting to pay $600-worth of property taxes with $1 bills. The bills were said to be folded so tightly it “required tax office personnel approximately six minutes to unfold each bill.”

When Norris refused, he was arrested and charged with criminal trespass. As the deputy grabbed Norris’ arm to place him in handcuffs, Norris pulled away. He pulled away again when the deputy went to grab his arm a second time, causing the deputy and Smyth to wrestle Norris to the ground to detain him — bringing an additional charge of resisting arrest.

Norris’ bail totaled $500 for both charges. He was not in the Wichita County Jail Monday.

Unpussified news. Not from America, natch

Four months ago, Demeteriya Nabire was killed by a crocodile when she went to the lake near her home to fetch water. The animal later came back to the area but found Nabire's husband waiting, ready to take revenge.

Demeteriya Nabire was at the water's edge with a group of women from her village - they were gathering water from Uganda's Lake Kyoga when the crocodile grabbed her. It dragged her away and she was never seen again.

Her husband, Mubarak Batambuze, was devastated - Nabire was pregnant when she died, and he had lost not only his wife but an unborn child as well. He felt powerless. But then last month he heard the crocodile had returned.

"Somebody called me and said, 'Mubarak, I have news for you - the crocodile that took your wife is here - we are looking at it now.'"

The 50-year-old fisherman made his way to the lake with some friends. "He was a very big monster, and we tried fighting him with stones and sticks. But there was nothing we could do," he says.

So Batambuze went to visit the local blacksmith.

"I explained to him that I was fighting a beast that had snatched and killed my wife and unborn baby. I really wanted my revenge, and asked the blacksmith to make me a spear that could kill the crocodile dead.
"The Blacksmith asked me for £3.20 ($5) and made the spear for me," he says. It was a significant amount of money for Batambuze, but he was determined to kill the animal that had snatched his future.

"The crocodile ate my wife entirely. Nothing was ever seen of her again - no clothes, no part of her body that I could identify. I just didn't know what to do - a mother and her unborn child. It was the end of my world. I was completely lost."

Armed with his new spear - specially designed with a barb on one side - the widower went on the attack.

When he got to the water the crocodile was still there, but Batambuze's friends took fright.

"Please don't attack this beast," they pleaded, "it's so huge it may eat you. The spear is not enough - it won't finish the job."

But Batambuze insisted they stay. "I failed killing it the first time around," he told them, "I'm not bothered if I die killing this beast. I'm going to take it on with this spear, and I will make sure that it dies."

Basically, there was a heroic fight and the widower won

A Ugandan Wildlife Authority ranger, Oswald Tumanya, says the crocodile was more than four metres long and weighed about 600kg.

1.  At least he's paying his taxes, even if it is in an inconvenient manner.  Quit yer whining, count, accept, and note payment, and move on. 
2.  Six minutes to unfold each $1 bill?  Oh, please.  I call BS.  Government work at its finest.  Their "efficiency" of unfolding the bills is laughable.

A South Florida family woke up Sunday to find a fist-sized chunk had been taken out of the body of their car.

They feared they’d been the target of vandals and Nora Ziegler said police only deepened that fear when she called them to her home.

But their worries turned to total shock and confusion when the culprit turned out to be a common squirrel.

Family Charged in Fake Kidnap Plot to Scare 'Too Nice' Child
http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/family-charged-fake-kidnap-plot-scare-too-nice-child-n301281 (http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/family-charged-fake-kidnap-plot-scare-too-nice-child-n301281)

A 6-year-old Missouri boy was led to believe he'd been kidnapped, shown a gun, and threatened with being sold into "sex slavery" — and it was all part of an alleged plot to teach the boy a lesson because he was "too nice" to strangers, authorities said.
The boy's aunt, Denise Kroutil, 38, enlisted the help of a co-worker, Nathan Wynn Firoved, 23, to stage a kidnapping to scare the child, and that the boy's mother, Elizabeth Hupp, 25, and grandmother, Rose Brewer, 58, agreed with the scheme.
On Monday, Firoved allegedly kidnapped the child after he got off a school bus and said he would never "see his mommy again," authorities said. Firoved also showed a handgun to the now-sobbing boy
The blindfolded child was then taken to family's home, put in the basement, and his aunt allegedly removed the child's pants and told him he could be sold into "sex slavery," the sheriff's office said. The boy was eventually led upstairs and lectured about the dangers strangers could pose.
Deputies were called to the home Wednesday after the boy told officials at school, and they contacted the state Division of Family Services, the sheriff's office said. The child was taken from the home.
All four were charged Thursday with felony kidnapping and child abuse, and were being held in lieu of $250,000 bail, according to police and court records. Firoved, Brewer and Kroutil were also charged with felonious restraint.

Your Samsung Smart TV is Recording Everything and Sending it to a Third Party
Quote
Users should be careful what they say around their TV, as it may just be listening, or even recording as well. Yep, you read that right, as a single sentence buried in Samsung’s “privacy policy” for its Smart TVs discovered by The Daily Beast has revealed that it is indeed recording everything you say and sending it to a third party. “Please be aware that if your spoken words include personal or other sensitive information, that information will be among the data captured and transmitted to a third party,” the policy reads.

The number of Americans requiring emergency room care for injuries involving sex toys has approximately doubled since 2007

the overwhelming majority of these injuries -- 83 percent -- require "foreign body removals."
58 percent of the patients are male, and the median age among this group is 44. The women skew younger, with a median age of 30. The oldest man in the dataset is 85, while the oldest women is 67.

A miniature Schnauzer in Cedar Rapids, Iowa ended up at a hospital where her owner was staying while battling cancer.

The dog made it's way 15-20 blocks and inside the automatic door where security found it wandering in the hospital lobby.  All of it was on security camera.

The dog, Sissy, belongs to Nancy Franck who was at Mercy Medical for two weeks following a surgery.

Nancy's husband and brother were back home taking care of the dog and were panicked when they found the dog was missing.

A security officer was able to call them after identifying the number on Sissy's tags.

The hospital did allow a short visit for Nancy and Sissy before Sissy had to go back home.

No one knows how Sissy got there.

Inspectors from the LA County Health Department visited the Metro Supermarket in Temple City on Tuesday, after being informed that the market was selling raccoons as food.

Employees at the market declined to appear on camera, but did show entire raccoons, frozen, bagged, and selling for $9.99 per pound. The employees say raccoon is considered a delicacy in China.

An Indian bride has married a guest at her wedding after her groom-to-be had a seizure and collapsed.

Reports said the groom, Jugal Kishore, was epileptic and he had kept the information from the bride, Indira, and her family.

While Mr Kishore was taken to hospital, the angry bride decided to switch husbands.

She asked a member of her brother-in-law's family, who was a guest, to step in and marry her instead. He agreed.

Naked Florida Woman Stops Traffic, Pleasures Self, Jumps On Lexus, Gets Arrested

Quote
A naked Florida woman presumably raised some eyebrows of Orlando motorists and passersby Sunday night when she took to the streets not just naked, but also taking some time to masturbate and mount the hood of a car.

The naked Florida woman ran out into a residential street in the Fairview Shores area on the outskirts of Orlando, bringing traffic to a halt, before she reportedly began touching herself while standing in front of one couple’s car, reports the Orlando Sentinel.

The couple in the car, reportedly a Lexus, was apparently trapped and had no choice but to watch as the naked woman leaped onto the hood of their car and started a jumping, stomping, frenzy which also included hurling a cell phone at a car stopped behind the Lexus.



Quote
Amie Carter isn’t the first naked Florida woman to be accused of masturbating in public or other sexual behavior deemed untoward.

Another naked Florida woman was arrested in September for masturbating on a motorcycle in front of a minor (and his mother), while a Florida man was just recently reported by his wife to police for having sex with their pet chihuahua.

RAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A woman is in police custody after running down US-131 in her bra on Sunday morning.

The incident happened by Pearl Street in Grand Rapids just before 3 a.m.

Police said four people saw the woman and stopped. A local security guard was able to move the woman to the cement barrier.

When officers arrived on scene, the woman was trying to escape the security guard.

Police believe the woman may be mentally unstable and she was transported to the hospital for treatment.

Missing Log Cabin Found 3,750 Feet Away From Original Location (ABC News)


     
A man returned to his property in Oregon earlier this week only to find that his log cabin was gone.

It wasn't wrecked from bad weather or bulldozed to the ground. The entire building was just not there.

Police eventually found the cabin 3,750 feet away from its original location and now believe they have figured out who took it.



The case appears to involve a complicated ownership agreement regarding the property, a fire at the main house on the land that displaced the people who had lived there, and changing romantic relationships, according to investigators from the Klamath Falls Sheriff's Department.

"Quite frankly, it's one of the most unusual moments I've ever seen," Sheriff Frank Skrah said at a news conference Thursday.

The approximately 1,200-square-foot cabin was a secondary building on a larger property that was jointly-owned by three individuals -- two men and a woman.



The man who reported the cabin missing built it and was the only person listed on the home loan, sheriff's officials said. However, the second man allegedly then sold the cabin to a neighbor without the owner's permission, the officials added.

The first man returned to the property on Tuesday for the first time in months to find the log cabin missing and then reported it to police.

Police were able to determine that the neighbor who paid $3,000 for the cabin had no idea it was stolen.



The home was first listed as $10,000, but the buyer was able to haggle down the price, officials said.

"To quote him, 'It was a steal of a deal,'" a sheriff's department official said at a news conference on Thursday.

The investigation is ongoing and no charges have been filed.

Markovitz tells Fox 2's Randy Wimbley his plan was to get even the ex-wife's new lover, and never meant for the matter be made public. However, it soon grabbed local attention when the ex-wife's daughter posted a picture of the statue on twitter.


If ever there was a need to  :facepalm:, this is it.




Sorry to dig this up but funny thing, my sister in law ran Mr. Wimbleys social media content for while after that incident for about a year.  Twas a bit odd to say the least.

Female News Anchor shuts down Islamist Sheikh who told her To 'Shut Up,' declared she is 'Beneath Him'

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/03/09/rima-karaki-islam-interview-video_n_6832424.html?cps=gravity_2689_-6486917134290010141 (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/03/09/rima-karaki-islam-interview-video_n_6832424.html?cps=gravity_2689_-6486917134290010141)

During a segment earlier this month on Lebanon's Al Jadeed TV, translated to English by the Middle East Media Research Institute, host Rima Karaki asked  Islamist Sheikh al-Seba'i if he had any insight on the possibility of Christians joining the Islamic State group, the extremist group that has captured large parts of Iraq and Syria and is known for recruiting foreign fighters. Al-Seba'i, who reportedly fled to the U.K. after he was sentenced to prison for joining the Egyptian Islamic Jihad group, launched into a historical tangent on Christians joining Islamic groups.

He then chafed when Karaki, mindful of time constraints, attempted to steer him back on-topic.

"Dr. al-Seba'i," Karaki interjected, "let's focus on the present. At present, what slogans are used to attract [Christians] to these groups?"

"Listen, don't cut me off. I will answer as I please," Seba'i responded, raising his finger scoldingly. "I will not answer the way you like, because I'm here to serve the idea in which I believe."

Karaki attempted to calm him down, saying, "Please don't get all worked up; we respect you and know you want to give a complete answer," to no avail. Seba'i steamrolled on, dressing down Karaki for the perceived insult.
"You think you are so high and mighty?" he asked, to which Karaki replied, "Go on, but do not call me names. In this studio, I run the show."

"For your own benefit, I'm telling you that we are running out of time," she continued. "If you're going to elaborate so much, we won't have time for other questions... If we have time, you will answer all the questions, but I will be the one to decide."

Seba'i was having none of it, telling the frustrated host, "You can decide as much as you like, but I will do whatever I want."

When Karaki attempted to focus the conversation one more time, Seba'i let loose. "Are you done?" he asked. "Shut up so I can talk."

"How can a respected sheikh like yourself tell a TV host to shut up?" Karaki countered.

"I am respected whether you like it or not," replied Seba'i, adding, "It's beneath me to be interviewed by you. You are a woman who..."

 At that point, his microphone was cut off.  "Just one second," Karaki said. "Either there is mutual respect, or the conversation is over."

And with that, she ended the interview.

U.K. face-sitting protest outside Parliament

http://www.dailydot.com/politics/face-sitting-protest-parliament/ (http://www.dailydot.com/politics/face-sitting-protest-parliament/)

On Friday afternoon outside Parliament in the U.K., pro-porn protesters organized a massive demonstration against new regulations from the British Board of Film Censors (BBFC). The demonstrators are angry that the new rules ban specific sex acts in porn, including face sitting, female ejaculation, fisting, spanking, and “penetration” by any large object.
When the regulations took effect earlier this month, feminist porn filmmakers and performers immediately took umbrage at them, calling them sexist and saying that banning an act like female ejaculation “appears to take aim at female pleasure,” as one sex worker told the Telegraph.

To register their displeasure with their government, British sex workers and adult performers gathered for a “face-sitting” protest outside Parliament. And boy, did it look like they were having a lot of fun

At one point, the protesters launched into a spirited version of Monty Python’s “Sit On My Face.”
There are a number of great vines capturing the scene. Many feature protesters chanting “What do we want/Face-sitting/When do we want it?/Now,” which sounds at least ten times funnier in plummy British accents

Three people remain in custody after being arrested on Saturday morning following a traffic stop in Canton. In what was described by Lt. Paul Sullivan as “the most bizarre traffic stop” that he has seen in his 23 years on the force, Canton police responded to a report of a disabled vehicle traveling on Route 95. They came across the vehicle shortly after 2 a.m. traveling in the high-speed lane on the southbound side.

“We spotted the green Hyundai Elantra traveling at approximately five miles-per-hour in the passing lane with a huge shower of sparks coming from the rear of the vehicle. As we got closer we noticed that the rear end of the vehicle was dragging on the ground due to the fact that there were no rear tires or axle on the vehicle,” said Lt. Sullivan of the Canton Police. “After the vehicle pulled over, we approached it and found that the driver was not only drinking a can of beer, but that he was not wearing any pants and that he had urinated on himself.”

An Oklahoma man who strangled his stepfather by pulling the man's underwear over his head says he only meant to embarrass him with an "atomic wedgie."

Brad Lee Davis, 34, of McLoud, pleaded guilty Monday in Shawnee, Oklahoma, to first-degree manslaughter in the 2013 death of Denver St. Clair, 58. He originally has been charged with murder.

Davis told the judge at a sentencing hearing Wednesday the whole thing is "like a bad dream," according to The Oklahoman.

Man sentenced for robbing same shoe store 15 years later

TOMS RIVER, N.J. (AP) — A man who served time for robbing a shoe store is now headed back to prison for another robbery at the same New Jersey store — as the same clerk was behind the counter.

Christopher Miller was sentenced Friday to 16 years in prison. The 41-year-old Bridgeton man had pleaded guilty earlier this year to robbery charges.

Authorities say the March 2014 robbery in Toms River occurred the day after Miller had been released from prison after finishing his 15-year sentence for the first robbery. Police say Miller made off with $389 and fled on foot with the employees' cellphones.

The clerk had been notified about Miller's release and identified the robbery suspect as the same person who had robbed the store in 1999.

More awesome than weird, but news nonetheless.

Rare Pulsating Aurora filmed in Iceland in March.
Quote
The 48-second video shown is not time-lapse. The real-time pulsations are exemplified by sequences where the astrophotographer is visible moving about in the foreground. A close inspection of the enigmatic flickering sky colors reveals that some structures appear to repeat, while others do not. The quick rapidity of the pulsations seen here is somewhat unusual — more common are aurora with pulsations that last several seconds. Recent research shows that pulsations are more common in electron-generated aurora, rather than proton aurora, and that the Earth’s local magnetic field may fluctuate in unison.

Man accused of skinny jeans hate crime against musicians turns himself in

A man accused of attacking three Sacramento-area musicians because they wore skinny jeans turned himself in to police Tuesday night.
Timothy Brownell, 25, was wanted on hate crime charges after allegedly yelling a homophobic slur at the musicians Sunday and assaulting them with a knife because of their skinny jeans, Sacramento police said. He turned himself in about 9:18 p.m. Tuesday at Sacramento County’s main jail.

Three Sacramento-area musicians were injured in a knife assault Sunday after their attacker yelled homophobic slurs and went after them because they wore skinny jeans, they said.
Brownell was initially arrested after the attack on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and possessing a firearm but was released on bond. Police then issued an arrest warrant for him Monday when the attack was reclassified as a hate crime.

“The Sacramento Police Department has zero tolerance for these crimes,” police said in a statement.

Woman Hospitalized After Suffering Nerve Damage from Skinny Jeans

Quote
A 35-year-old Australian woman checked into a hospital after getting trapped in her skinny jeans, according to a study published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry.

The woman had reportedly been helping a family member move, and the repeated squatting in skinny jeans caused her muscles to swell, which led to a feeling of numbness in her feet. Because of the loss of sensation, she tripped and fell on her way home and spent hours on the ground before she was found.

When she checked into the hospital, she still suffered from weak ankles, and her legs were so swollen that her jeans had to be cut off. The woman was treated with intravenous hydration and made a full recovery after four days.

"The wearing of 'skinny' jeans had likely potentiated the tibial neuropathies [a loss of movement or sensation in the lower legs]," concludes the research article. "The present case represents a new neurological complication of wearing tight jeans."

Maine man launches himself into Darwin award candidacy.

https://bangordailynews.com/2015/07/05/news/down-east/1-dead-in-bizarre-fireworks-accident-in-calais/

Maine — A local man was killed instantly Saturday when he set off a fireworks mortar tube on his head, despite efforts his friends made to stop him, state police said Sunday.

Devon Staples, 22, of Calais was in a friend’s backyard on South Street with a group of others when the incident occurred at approximately 10 p.m. The explosion caused a fatal head injury, and Staples died instantly, said Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety.

Staples had been drinking with his friends when the incident occurred, McCausland said.

“When he suggested he was going to do this, his friends gathered around him and they thought they had convinced him not to do it,” McCausland said Sunday.

But before they could react, Staples set off the explosive. McCausland described the firework as being within a reloadable mortar tube available in consumer fireworks stores around the state.

The fatality was the first reported since fireworks became legal in Maine in March 2012. Fireworks sales in the state through May 2015 totaled $20.3 million, officials have said.

But this ones not even originally strange;
On July 2nd, 1982,  Larry Walters (aka (Lawnchair Larry) tied 42 helium-filled balloons to a lawn chair in San Pedro, California. He took supplies, including a BB gun to shoot out the balloons when he was ready to descend. His goal was to sail across the desert and hopefully make it to the Rocky Mountains in a few days. But things didn't quite work out for Larry. After his crew cut the tether, Larry shot into the sky at over 1,000 feet per minute. So fast was his ascent that he lost his glasses.  For several hours he drifted in the cold air near the LA and Long Beach airports. A TWA pilot spotted Larry and radioed the tower that he was passing a guy in a lawn chair at 16,000!
Larry shot out a few balloons to start his descent but dropped the gun. He eventually landed in a Long Beach.

The rodent "ransacked" the Worcestershire members club in Eversham, turning on a beer tap and knocking over glasses and beer bottles.

Honeybourne Railway Club branch secretary Sam Boulter, 62, discovered the damage when he opened the bar at around 8pm on Sunday night – at first thinking the club had been burgled.

“When I opened the door it was absolutely ransacked. At first I thought we'd been burgled but I realised it was all still locked up and that's when we saw the squirrel,”

I'm cool with cats as pets, but not as feral killing machines.


I must admit, I'm not very cool with them as pets either, because they still kill, wild or tame.

Vietnam Veteran Takes Bullet to the Hip Protecting...


Sea Turtle Nest
https://military.id.me/community-news/veteran-takes-bullet-to-the-hip-protecting-sea-turtle-nest/?utm_source=SOV&utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=article

Pannaman was standing guard at a turtle nest on Lauderdale-by-the-Sea beach as a Sea Turtle Oversight Protection volunteer. For protection, Pannaman was carrying a .32 caliber Kel-Tec pistol.

Michael Q. McAuliffe, a 38 year-old local with a criminal history, began to shout that he hated turtles, hurl obscenities at the veteran and attack the yellow tape surrounding the nest. Pannaman drew his handgun in the hopes of diffusing the situation, but McAuliffe tackled the disabled veteran to the ground, gouged his head, and snatched the gun away.

Much to the chagrin of the sitting guv'na, nothing has happened yet. I guess they were expecting a bull rush. But that hasn't panned out. They'll be looking for moles soon I'm sure. Anyone not Texas born will have their papers scrutinized severely.

Kermit and Piggy Call it Quits

http://patch.com/california/agourahills/splitsville-kermit-piggy-call-it-quits (http://patch.com/california/agourahills/splitsville-kermit-piggy-call-it-quits)

One of Hollywood’s most famous power couples called it quits today, ending an often-fiery relationship that has spanned decades on television and film.

In a blockbuster joint statement, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy announced they are splitting up.

“After careful thought, thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling, we have made the difficult decision to terminate our romantic relationship,” according to Kermit and Piggy. “We will continue to work together on television ... and in all media now known or hereafter devised, in perpetuity, throughout the universe. However, our personal lives are now distinct and separate, and we will be seeing other people, pigs, frogs, et al.

“This is our only comment on this private matter -- unless we get the right offer. Thank you for your understanding.”

The announcement came just weeks before the return of “The Muppets” to network television. Jim Henson’s famed creations will star in an ABC series featuring Kermit and company producing a late-night talk show starring Miss Piggy. The series premieres Sept. 22.

Man fatally shot while taking selfies with gun

Quote
A man posing with a gun and taking selfies was killed when the gun went off and struck him in southwest Houston, police said.

Family members said the victim is 19-year-old Deleon Alonso Smith.

Investigators said Smith was taking selfies with a gun at an apartment in the 9800 block of Forum Park Drive and Bissonnet around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday when the gun accidentally went off, shooting the 19-year-old in the throat and killing him.

"It's the worst feeling in my life," said the victim's uncle Eric Douglas.

"It's a numb feeling. It's still unbelievable. Yesterday was my birthday and he came to wish me happy birthday, and now this kind of news," said Smith's grandmother Alma Douglas.

Family members said Smith has two young children and was starting college Wednesday.  Investigators said Smith's cousin was in the apartment but in another room when it happened. The cousin told police they found the gun earlier Tuesday, but investigators are working to find out where.

Police said Smith believed the gun was unloaded at the time.

No charges have been filed.

Overnight fire destroys Full Throttle Saloon

   

The Full Throttle Saloon, a popular rally establishment, was destroyed by an early morning fire Tuesday.

Posted: Tuesday, September 8, 2015 1:24 am | Updated: 7:42 am, Tue Sep 8, 2015.

Gary Matthews | 16 comments

STURGIS, S.D. - Numerous fire agencies were called in to battle a massive fire at the Full Throttle Saloon east of Sturgis overnight Monday.

The call came in just after midnight, and crews first on the seen could see smoke coming from the roof of the main structure. Soon, the entire facility was engulfed in flames, which spread to nearby structures.

Heavy smoke rose into the early morning air as fire crews raced back and forth bringing water and supplies. The lack of water on the bar grounds prompted fire officials to call in tenders, which then had to go back and reload.

A call came out from those in charge to keep people out of the burning structure. Rather, fire crews worked to "surround and drown," or fight the fire from outside by surrounding it.

Fire crews had to temporarily close Highway 34 in front of the structure because of the dangerous conditions.

Fire crews from Piedmont, Vale, Whitewood, Sturgis and Fort Meade were among the agencies called in to fight the blaze. They remain on scene this morning as the rubble continues to smolder.

other local happenings for the weekend:

Box Elder police officers were called to a report of unwanted people who might be armed hanging around the Belle Starr Gentlemen's Club early Sunday, and when they arrived, they were met by the sound of gunfire.

The incident happened around 3 a.m. Sunday at the strip club at 228 Box Elder Road, and when they heard shots, the three officers drew their weapons and took cover, according to a police press release.

On the west side of the club, officers encountered 34-year-old Gerardo Belloc of Midland, Texas, who admitting shooting his weapon. Belloc told officers he had been test firing the gun because it "seemed like a good thing to do." Police recovered a .45 caliber handgun and seven shell casings.

Belloc, who police said was intoxicated and in possession of cocaine, was arrested without incident and jailed on multiple charges, including reckless discharge of a firearm, possessing a loaded gun while intoxicated, and drug possession.

Belloc and another man on the scene told officers they were with the Bandidos biker club and were in town for the national Bandidos biker rally in the Black Hills.

The other man present, 25-year-old Jose Juan Morales, also of Midland, Texas, was arrested on a charge of suspected driving under the influence, police said.



and yes, Ed, it is the same strip joint :-[

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A motorcyclist who hit another biker and then sped away from police tried to escape by jumping into icy San Francisco waters.

He was later arrested.

On Thursday afternoon, a California Highway Patrol officer attempted to stop the motorcyclist for driving on a freeway shoulder. He continued and struck another motorist. He entered the water at the China Basin Water Channel and began swimming. Authorities went out on a small boat and a jet ski and also surrounded the shoreline.

Police brought in larger boats and surrounded the man in the water. He eventually climbed onto a pier where he sat on a large metal pipe. Police negotiators spoke to him for several hours and he surrendered Thursday night. He was arrested. He was not injured. His name and age were not released by San Francisco police.

The man was being named as part of a process to be outlawed - meaning he could be executed on sight.

Well, this went tits up for both of them. But, two years before she found out? Weird news indeed.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3235421/Woman-pretended-man-dupe-female-friend-sex-GUILTY-sexual-assault.html (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3235421/Woman-pretended-man-dupe-female-friend-sex-GUILTY-sexual-assault.html)

A 25-year-old woman who pretended to be a man to trick her female friend into having sex has been found guilty of three counts of sexual assault.

Gayle Newland befriended her victim by posing on Facebook as a man named 'Kye Fortune'.

Newland bound her chest and wore a woolly hat and swimsuit to disguise her appearance, telling the woman 'he' was self-conscious about 'his' appearance after hospital treatment.

Chester Crown Court heard how the victim, also 25, was made to wear a blindfold whenever she was with 'Kye', whom she dated for two years, including on the roughly ten occasions the pair had sex.

The victim said she only discovered 'Kye's' true identity when she ripped off her blindfold during one meeting at her flat in Chester, Cheshire, and saw Newland wearing a prosthetic penis.

She earlier told the court that she was 'sickened' by the revelation and that 'at no time' did she consent to sex with the use of a prosthetic.

Newland, who has identified as a lesbian since primary school, denied the charges and told the court that she and the victim were engaging in role play and fantasy as they struggled to accept their sexuality.

Today Newland was found guilty of committing sexual assaults at the complainant's flat in Chester, but was cleared of similar offences said to have taken place at hotels in the city.

The defendant, from Willaston, Cheshire, sat in stunned silence as the foreman returned the verdicts.

During the trial, Newland admitted she had invented 'Kye' when she was 13 as a way to speak to girls. She later created 'his' Facebook profile, using photos taken from an American man's social media page.

But she said she had explained the fake profile to the defendant, who played along with her online persona.

The complainant spent 'hundreds' of hours talking on the telephone to 'Kye' and the couple, then both students at the University of Chester, spent more than 100 hours in each other's company.

Asked how they spent their time together, the complainant told the court they would sometimes watch a film while she was wearing a blindfold and on one occasion they went sunbathing.

COURT AFFIRMS YOUR RIGHT TO SCRAWL "FUCK YOUR SHITTY TOWN" ON SPEEDING TICKETS RECEIVED IN SHITTY TOWNS

Quote
A Connecticut man has won his lawsuitagainst a shitty New York municipality that fined him for speeding, then arrested him because it didn’t like what he wrote on his ticket.

Michael Barboza was pissed off that the town of Liberty, N.Y., had dinged him for speeding, and he expressed his feelings by writing “FUCK YOUR SHITTY TOWN BITCHES” on the ticket, as well as crossing out “Liberty” and replacing it with “Tyranny.” Despite his assessment of the town’s shittiness, he paid the ticket.

But the shitty, ironically named town refused to take Barboza’s payment, calling him into court instead. After driving two hours to comply with the summons, he was arrested for aggravated harassment.

A judge dropped the charges a year later, not even bothering to cite a case in determining that “fuck your shitty town” is protected free speech.

Barboza, with the assistance of the good people at the New York Civil Liberties Union, sued Liberty and its assistant district attorney, Robert Zangla, for violating his First Amendment rights. That case was finally decided Thursday, in Barboza’s favor.

A federal judge found that Barboza’s writing, “though crude and offensive to some, did not convey an imminent threat and was made in the context of complaining about government activity,” and thus didn’t qualify as harassment under the relevant statute.

“The words here are not inherently likely to provoke violent reaction, they were not directed at anyone in particular, and could not be interpreted as threatening any particular action,” Seibel said.

“I hope that by standing up for myself, other Americans will not be treated like criminals for complaining about their government with a few harmless words.”

“Bitches,” he added, in his head, nodding in satisfaction.

‘Star Trek: Voyager’ Actress Arrested for Allegedly Flashing Children

HARRIMAN (WATE) – A woman who played the medical assistant in the first three season of Star Trek: Voyager was arrested for indecent exposure.

Jennifer Ann Lien, 41, was arrested at her home in Harriman on September 3 at around 6:42 p.m. Deputies said Lien had an active warrant in Roane County on two counts of exposing herself to a child under the age of 13.

Neighbor Carey Smith says Lien recently walked by her home and commented on how the children were being cared for while two were crying.

“Started saying vulgar things. I mean really vulgar things, I told her to mind her own business and keep on walking,” said Smith.

That’s when things got even stranger.

“All of a sudden, here come the shirt up. She started flashing and, ‘Woo hoo,’ and I said, ‘And what respect is that for kids?’ There was none. And then she turned around and dropped her pants,” said Smith.

Parents, worried things might escalate, then called 911.

“I didn’t understand why she was doing it,” said Kayla Clark.

At the time, Lien denied to police that she exposed herself, but officers issued a detainer summons, charging her with indecent exposure.

When Roane County deputies visited Lien’s house, her front door was open. After knocking on the door, she yelled at deputies to come in.

Deputies said Lien was naked on her couch, covered by a blanket. She told the deputies she was expecting them.

Then dispatch told the deputies that Lien had an active warrant from the Harriman City Police Department. When they told her about the warrant, she said they needed to leave her alone, saying she wasn’t going any (expletive) where.

The two deputies repeatedly asked Lien to put on clothes, eventually calling for a female deputy. They said Lien told them she would have all of them shot and killed.

Eventually, deputies said the put Lien in handcuffs, putting a shirt and pants from the jail on her. They said she refused to walk to the patrol car and they had to carry her to the car, before driving to the Roane County Detention Center. Lien’s bond was set at $2,500.

Parents say they are worried and angry about the impression made on their children.

“She pretty much copies everything that I do and I’m pretty sure she would copy somebody else doing that behavior and I don’t want that her to,” said Clark.

Criminal history
Lien has a criminal history that includes aggravated assault, resisting arrest, evading arrest and reckless endangerment on April 17 by the Harriman Police Department.

On June 4, 2012 she was also arrested for domestic assault in Roane County.

Star Trek: Voyager
For three seasons, Lien played “Kes” on the American science fiction television series Star Trek: Voyager. She played an Ocampa.

During the show, she developed a close friendship with the Doctor, played by Robert Picardo. She received medical training and took on a role as a Medical assistant.

She left the show in season four, making one guest appearance two seasons later.

When i was a kid, we had three stepped chin up bars. We'd hang upside down and swing until we released and landed (hopefully) on our feet. We'd graduate to sitting on top of the bar, slip back to our knees, swing back and around and release and again hopefully land on our feet.

Swings too. Swing high and jump off.

Oldest daughter did that in school and landed face first onto the asphalt losing both her front teeth.

Younger daughter was running while playing tag and not looking, ran into a boy and green stick fractured her collarbone.

Caffeinated peanut butter is now here

has the caffeine equivalent of two cups of coffee in just two tablespoons.

“It’s a time-saver. Your two favorite products in one jar,” Steem co-founder Chris Pettazzoni

The idea was actually born when the three founders—Pettazzoni along with business partners Keith Barnofski and Andrew Brach—were thinking about possible hangover cures.

The Steem team claims that unsaturated fats in the peanut butter bond with caffeine molecules to slow digestion and reward eaters with a steady release of energy—rather than a jittery jolt.

The dude was breaking into this house and stealing underwear from the other dudes mom. He beat him, chased him while beating him, beat him across a river, beat him on the railroad tracks and finally beat him into a coma with a rock and a stick under a bridge.

How do I know the details?

Quote
MONTCALM COUNTY, MI - The Montcalm County Sheriff's deputy who was shot by a crossbow Friday night while attempting to arrest a man accused of assaulting a neighbor is in serious condition at a Grand Rapids hospital.

The man they were attempting to arrest – identified by neighbors as Travis Lee Quay, 40 – had allegedly stabbed a neighbor with a pitchfork and threatened to burn down his neighbor's home on Friday morning. The neighbor suffered minor injuries and required a tetanus shot. Quay apparently became angry with his neighbor because he believed the neighbor had taken his marijuana.



They shot and killed the shooter.  Good.

I'm sorry, but NO.

I do not agree that housing, clothing, food, entertainment, and education for a killer is worth it to society. Not to mention the costs of trail, attorneys, appeals, court time, overtime for police to testify, etc, etc. How is that repaying his debt to society, or his victims?

5,000 ‘teeth’ in desert puzzle Baker

Quote
The old prospector claimed a UFO blew up, scattering thousands of pieces – all standing upright – in the middle of Silver Dry Lake. Residents of Baker, Calif., didn’t buy that explanation – but the mystery remained. Who or what left 5,000 objects standing in the dry lake?

No idea.  Based on the location of the car and the relative heights of the roads nearby, I'm guessing with the right sunlight if you were looking you could see the car.  Maybe someone spotted it from the ground?

Turns out the guy battled depression and was recently diagnosed with cancer (back in 2006).  A buddy posted up that he disappeared on 10-11/06, and 10/12/06 we had 2" of snow.  They would have plowed the snow right towards the pond, so any tracks would have been covered by the snow then the snow piles.  Crazy chain of events...

A study of 986 indigenous women in Bolivia indicated a lifetime of Ascaris lumbricoides, a type of roundworm, infection led to an extra two children.
Researchers, writing in the journal Science, suggest the worm is altering the immune system to make it easier to become pregnant.

Prof Blackwell said: "We think the effects we see are probably due to these infections altering women's immune systems, such that they become more or less friendly towards a pregnancy."
He said using worms as a fertility treatment was an "intriguing possibility" but warned there was far more work to be done "before we would recommend anyone try this".

BOONE COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- The survivor of a bizarre and tragic hunting accident in Boone County tells WSAZ about the pain of losing his best friend.

Donnie Barker III, 25, of Wharton, and Steven Lee Setser, 19, also of Wharton, were hunting in a wooded area Monday.

Setser told WSAZ Tuesday the men got cold, so they decided to build a fire under a rock overhang.

"The rock, after about an hour or two, it just gave way," Setser said. "It fell on him and when I went out, I looked back, and he was crushed."

Troopers say the heat from the fire reportedly caused the boulder to break apart and fall on the men. The incident happened around 2:45 p.m. Monday.

The fallen boulder was described as about half the size of a firetruck.

Barker died from his injuries at the scene. The rock hit Setser in the head and back.

"I thought to myself -- If I panic, I was scared I was going to die too," said Setser.

Despite his injuries, Setser was able to make it to a relative's home for help. He was later taken to CAMC General for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

He says he's built a fire in that same spot several times before.

"I just sit there and watch my best friend die," said Setser.

SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) — An Alaska Airlines plane has struck and killed a deer while landing at the Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport.

Alaska Airlines spokeswoman Bobbie Egan told the Santa Rosa Press Democrat on Saturday ([url]http://bit.ly/1Q7vi3Y[/url] ([url]http://bit.ly/1Q7vi3Y[/url])) the deer apparently wandered into the planes' path and was hit Wednesday.

Egan says the plane was scheduled to continue on to Los Angeles, but that flight was canceled so the aircraft could be inspected.

She says the Bombardier Q-400 turboprop was not damaged, but the tires were changed as a precaution.

Egan says the unusual incident led to the cancellation of two flights with 81 passengers, some of whom didn't fly until the following day.

Another local resident made the shocking discovery of the pensioner, who was partly naked, on a bed and in very close proximity to a sex toy.

A married dad-of-two arrested once DNA, including semen, was analysed by police.

 "She was lying in the bed, naked from the waist down and with a vibrator. I noticed only two small bruises on her face, but there was blood on the sheets and a picture of her husband resting on her chest."

the victim, who was the widow of a sailor, was a "very active" older woman and that she enjoyed "to make jokes with men". Another neighbour said the man often went round her house to do "electricity odd jobs".

Quote

A man has died after apparently trying to blow up a condom vending machine in Germany.

The 29-year-old was brought into hospital with a head injury by two other men who first told doctors their colleague injured himself falling downstairs.

But suspicious medical staff called police.

The men subsequently admitted that they had tried to blow up the machine and the victim was injured by a piece of flying metal from by the blast.

He later died of his injuries.

Officers say the suspects apparently got into a car after priming the explosion but the 29-year-old failed to close his door and was hit by debris when the machine exploded.

Police alerted to the explosion in the town of Schoeppingen, close to the border with the Netherlands, on Christmas Day found condom packets and cash lying on the ground, apparently untouched.


That's not how you blow up a condom ...

http://tmzbeg.com/man-arrested-for-breaking-into-homes-and-tickling-buttholes/ (http://tmzbeg.com/man-arrested-for-breaking-into-homes-and-tickling-buttholes/)

TEXAS – The infamous “B*oty Tickler” who was breaking into homes in Dallas and tickling peoples but*holes while they were sleeping has finally been captured.
The so called “B*oty tickler” hit several homes and targeted at least a dozen people before being arrested.
His best cover is the element of surprise people believed he was a harmless homeless man but after being captured it was discovered he wasn’t homeless but was wearing “Yezzus” brand clothing that is estimated to be worth over $4,500.
All of the break-ins happened overnight and people were so scared they started sleeping on their back.
We spoke we Richard Nays who lives near 3 of the “B*oty ticklers” victims homes and he told us “Fam I slept on my back everyday, I can finally sleep on my stomach again”.
Police say they were able to identify him and arrested him today at 5 a.m. All of the tickler’s victims were men. He is currently being held in Dallas County with no bond.

Woman complains that diner who had heart attack ruined her New Year's Eve

hairdresser Holly Jones from Indianapolis, took to Facebook to complain that her New Year's Eve was ruined when another restaurant diner had a heart attack during her celebration.

After seeing the frantic staff at Kilroy's Bar N' Grill focus on assisting the sick woman while ignoring her questions about a $700 bar bill, Jones ranted on the restaurant's Facebook page that "The manager also told us someone dying was more important then us."

Jones has since removed her own Facebook page and, according to reports, is now claiming that her account was hacked.

Because of the hacking claim, Jones is reportedly still demanding an apology from Kilroy's, saying that they still should have had more "respect" for her.

I can't respect her... EVERYONE knows you complain on Yelp, not facebook.

«Bruce Willis could never have done this», says local police officer in Kristiansand, Jan Nesland.

Kristiansand is one of the larger cities in Norway, with almost 90,000 inhabitants, situated in the southern part of the country.

On January 20th, a Norwegian 25 year old car owner woke up in the middle of the night when a thief started his car. In minus 17 degrees Celsius, and in his underwear, the man ran out and jumped on top of the car.

The thief drove off, but the car owner clung onto the roof in 56 mph. During the high-speed chase, he managed to break the back window with his knee.
«After breaking the window, he climbed into the car yelling. Then he grabbed the thief, and forced him to stop. The thief tried to flee, but the car owner ran after him and held him until the police arrived», police officer Jan Nesland says.

After his release from hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries from breaking the window, the car owner says to the local newspaper Faedrelandsvennen:

    When I realized that he wouldn't stop, there was only one thing to do. Smash the window, climb into the car and stop him.
«I didn't have time to think when I was running after the thief in my car. I grabbed the car and held on to it on pure reflex. Then he drove so fast that I didn't dare to let go. The speed of the car was at least 56 miles per hour. When I realized that he wouldn't stop, there was only one thing to do. Smash the window, climb into the car and stop him.»
«In only your underwear, in 56 mph, that must have been freezing cold?»

«Yes, it was cold. I got frostbite in two of my toes. I also had to be stitched up in the hospital»

«It was a matter of life and death?»
Map of the route.

«Yes it was. When lying on the car, I was thinking about my girlfriend and my parents. There was no other way but to smash the window.»

The car owner is working as a carpenter. When asked if he now considers a career as an action hero, he replies with a grin.

«Not yet».

Check out our live webcam on Varoddbroa, where the car thief was stopped.
The value of the car: 492 US dollars

The car was an older Volkswagen Passat, with an estimated value of 5000 Norwegian kroner (492 US dollars).

«That car wasn’t worth much, so I don’t believe it was the value of the car, the car owner was defending. It was more of a principle», local police officer Nesland says an adds:
A 25 year old car owner in his underwear managed to stop a car thief on a high way bridge. After hanging onto the car in 56 mph he managed to break the back window and subdue the thief.
Malene Sørensen Lundberg

«I have never experienced anything like this, not even in movies. If you manage to hang onto to the top of a car, just in your underwear, in minus 17 degrees, in high speed, that’s just crazy».

For the record, Norwegian police does not recommend cathching thieves this way.

 POLICE are taking no further action after failing to find any evidence to substantiate a complaint of a man breaking into a house and committing a sexual act over the bed of a sleeping couple.

Officers were called to a house in Eccleshill, Bradford, on January 26, after a report of a "suspicious incident."

They found the door of the house was insecure and there were no signs of a forced entry.


House to house inquiries were made but no residents reported anything suspicious.

A sample of stained bedding was taken away and analysed and found not to be semen or saliva. It is now thought the stain could have been cat sick.

A spokesman for Bradford Police said today: "This is not being classed as a burglary. No further action is being taken at this time."

Gulls, now. Where's a cat when you need one?

Remember, chips is English for French Fries.

 https://twitter.com/alexbrucesmith/status/694276763333971968

    Guys this is the true crime story of the decade:

    Yesterday a friend told me what might well be the best story I’ve ever heard. She had caught the train in from Frankston. And while she was waiting for the train to come, she noticed a man sitting down on the platform with a bag of fish and chips. But he wasn’t really eating them. He was just sort of letting them air.

    This attracted a few seagulls, who began to circle the platform. Instead of shooing the birds away, the man offered them a few chips. He’d toss one a foot or so away from him. It was like he was beckoning them to come closer. He kept doing this, eking the chips out slowly, until there was a big group of seagulls in front of him, 15 or 20. A tiny army. He’d throw them a chip every now and then – just enough to keep the birds interested, but not enough to sate them. It was frustrating. They were getting angry. Squawking. It was like he was rearing them up for… something.

    Then the train came, and everyone got on. But the man stayed on the ground with his chips. Just when the train was about to leave. It happened.

    Right before the doors closed, the man threw the entire bag of the fish and chips into the train. The entire flock of seagulls followed the bag. And the doors closed. Inside the train: pandemonium.

    The next train stop was five minutes away.

Quote
Now, a team from the University of California, Riverside, has developed a technique that augments the regular GPS data with on-board inertial measurements from a sensor. Actually, that’s been tried before, but in the past it’s required large computers to combine the two data streams, rendering it ineffective for use in cars or mobile devices. Instead what the University of California team has done is create a set of new algorithms which, it claims, reduce the complexity of the calculation by several order of magnitude.

A Spanish civil servant who failed to turn up for work for "at least" six years has been caught after becoming eligible for a long service award.
Joaquin Garcia, 69, was fined €27,000 (£21,000; $30,000) after the award brought his long absence to light.
Mr Garcia, whose job was to supervise the building of a waste water treatment plant, has since retired.
He denies the allegations and his lawyer says he has gone into hiding after suffering a media "lynching".
Mr Garcia said he had been a victim of political bullying in the job and moved to a post where there was no work to do.

The man, who appears to have been trying to make a desperate mayday call, has been identified as German adventurer manfred Fritz Bajorat.

He was found by two fishermen at the weekend in the seas off Surigao del Sur province, about 50 miles off Philippines.

The grey corpse, which was preserved by dry ocean winds, hot temperatures and the salty air, was still sat at a desk near radio equipment on the 40ft yacht called Sayo, which was partially submerged.

His decomposing body was found by photographs and a haunting letter to his wife, Claudia, who died from cancer in 2010.

It is not year clear when he died, but no one has reported seeing him since 2009.

HARRIS COUNTY, TEXAS - Highway 290 westbound, in Harris County, Texas, is shut down at Huffmeister due to a crash and a disturbance involving a woman dancing on top of a big rig.

Houston TranStar cameras show the woman is not wearing any clothes, which is slowing eastbound/inbound traffic as well.

Houston TranStar reports the crash, involving three vehicles, occurred just before 9 a.m.

It's unknown why the woman is dancing, but deputies have arrived at the scene to take her into custody.

I don't get how somebody can do that. I'd think they would have some way of verifying that they're tearing down the right house. This guy wasn't even on the right street! Around here, I've seen houses (and buildings) set for demo that had the street number spray painted in nice big letters and sometimes either a big X on it or even the word DEMO.

Have you ever been to the remains of a tornado?  Whole neighborhoods can look like a war zone.  Few recognizable landmarks even if you're familiar with the area.  I'm not excusing it, but I can see how it could happen.

And of course yet another stellar example of editorial review..

Quote
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. –  A couple who owned a Virginia Beach bakery pleaded guilty to federal money laundering and drug charges.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says the Portsmouth couple, 43-year-old Vernon Norvell and 31-year-old Cheron Johnson, entered the pleas Monday in federal court in Norfolk. Norvell pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute cocaine and conspiracy to commit money laundering. Johnson pleaded guilty to money laundering and making a false statement in a tax filing.

Prosecutors ran a large-scale cocaine operation at his home and the couple's business, G's Cake Shop.

According to court documents, Norvell and Johnson used the proceeds of cocaine dealing to buy a home, several automobiles and expensive clothing.

Sentencing is set for June 22.

Singer dies on stage 45 minutes after cobra bit her during performance

A pop singer collapsed and died in the middle of her performance, 45 minutes after she was bitten by a cobra.
Irma Bule, 29, was dancing on stage in West Java, Indonesia, when she accidentally stepped on one of the snakes she used in her act. She believed the King Cobra snake had been de-fanged but somehow it injected its venom into her when it bit her on the thigh.
Although Irma was reportedly offered antidote, she is said to have refused it and carried on performing after a snake handler pulled the animal away.


However, the poison in her bloodstream made her start vomiting and and have seizures as she gave the concert in the village of Karawang. The distressing video shows the moment staff try to save Irma from the snake, named Rianti.
Irma was taken to hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Audience member Ferlando Octavion Auzura told local website Merdeka: ‘In the middle of the second song, Irma stepped on the snake’s tail. ‘The snake then bit Irma in her thigh.’

King cobras are one of the deadliest animals in the world and can kill an elephant – or 20 people – with a single bite.

Appearing to drown all hope that the U.K.'s new $300 million research vessel will be named "Boaty McBoatface," Science Minister Jo Johnson says the ship needs a more "suitable" name.

Boaty McBoatface decisively won a public poll that Britain's Natural Environment Research Council launched last month to whip up enthusiasm about science

The Natural Environment Research Council has said a final decision on the name "will be announced in due course."

Woman arrested for defecating on boss’ desk after winning the lottery

NEW YORK – A 41-year-old woman had the winning lottery ticket worth over 3 million dollars on Friday night, but showed up to work anyway on Monday to deliver one last package.
The courier company had no idea of her winnings. “I knew something was wrong because I came back from lunch and the door to my office was closed,” said the manager. I slowly opened the door to discover the woman with her pants around her ankles, hunched over on my desk like a hippopotamus/cheetah dropping a massive poo on my desk. She shot her head towards me and locked eyes. I was frozen in shock and fear. In my peripheral vision I saw a huge mud-monkey sliming out of her butt like a Play-Doh fun factory.”

“It was worth it,” the woman said on arrest. “On Friday when I realized I hit the lotto, I knew this would be the first thing I would do. I hit up every Mexican food truck and saved my dumps all weekend. I was shuffling around like a death-row inmate trying not to explode. I’ve been putting up with that guy’s shit for years, it’s time he put up with some of mine.”

LONDON – When an 18-year-old arrived at a London emergency room with severe abdominal pain, no appetite, and a fever, doctors recognized the symptoms of appendicitis and scheduled an emergency surgery.

They were in for a shock. Once the teen had been cut open, doctors at North Middlesex University Hospital were “very surprised to see blood coming from the liver,” while his appendix seemed just fine, Dr.

What the teen had failed to mention: Two days earlier he’d been hit in the abdomen by two paintballs during his first attempt at the sport, reports ABC News. Though the paintballs—which can travel up to 300 feet per second—didn’t leave a bruise near his liver, it’s not uncommon for “seemingly innocuous events to cause internal injuries,” Luck says.

What was your biggest achievement at the age of 15? Well, a Canadian teenager has outshone the experts after discovering a lost Mayan city. William Gadoury, from Saint-Jean-de-Matha, Quebec, made the discovery by comparing star charts with satellite images. The new city, discovered in a Mexican jungle, is thought to be the fourth biggest Mayan city, and has been named 'Mouth of Fire' by the teenager.

Stunning achievement!

For years, Jermaine Himmelstein, 24, has held a sign offering “Free Hugs” in public places like Times Square and Washington Square Park, a seemingly kind offer that could brighten the days of tourists and lunch-breakers.

For years, it hasn’t worked like that. The sign is a lie; Mr. Himmelstein has frequently accosted people who don’t tip him, in some cases assaulting them. Far from spreading joy, he was described in a 2013 profile in The New York Times as “a creepy legend.”

On Thursday, he was arrested and charged with robbery after punching a 22-year-old Canadian tourist, a woman, in the face at 46th Street and Broadway in Times Square, sending her to a hospital with severe swelling to her face, the police said. She had taken a photo with Mr. Himmelstein and refused his demands to pay him, the police said.

As for practicalities, he suggested that their descendants could cast proxy votes for the fallen.

Man Trapped In Budweiser Warehouse Resorts To Drinking His Own Urine

http://waterfordwhispersnews.com/2015/09/15/man-trapped-in-budweiser-warehouse-resorts-to-drinking-his-own-urine/ (http://waterfordwhispersnews.com/2015/09/15/man-trapped-in-budweiser-warehouse-resorts-to-drinking-his-own-urine/)

A DUBLIN man has told reporters of his harrowing experience after becoming trapped for three days in a Budweiser storage depot, during which time he was forced to drink his own urine to stay alive.

Malcolm McArdle, 35, was working at the beer warehouse on Friday evening when he accidentally got locked in by co-workers after returning to grab his phone from the cab of his forklift.

Thinking that McArdle had left already, staff at the depot closed the shutters and went home for the weekend, leaving the Dublin native trapped in the inner part of the store.


With his phone battery dead and surrounded by nothing except crates of Budweiser beer, McArdle had no choice but to wait to be freed for nearly three days with nothing to eat and absolutely nothing that he could drink.

“The thirst really started to kick on on Saturday,” said McArdle, recovering at his home following his ordeal.

“I tried to lick condensation off the walls, but that didn’t work. In the end, I had to open a can of Budweiser, pour it all out, fill the empty can with my own piss and drink that. I’m not ashamed: I did what I had to do to survive”.

Workers arrived at the warehouse to clock in on Monday morning discovered the emaciated McArdle, who was immediately rushed to hospital suffering from severe dehydration. Checks are being put in place to make sure an incident like this never happens again.

According to KOBI-TV, A man, and his horse happened to be in the right place at the right time to thwart a would-be thief outside a Walmart in Oregon.

A woman was walking out of the store around 10:00 a.m. Friday when she saw a man take off with her bike.

When she began yelling, a man with a horse trailer jumped into action, taking the horse out of the trailer and going after the thief.

The cowboy then used a lasso to catch the suspect and held him there until police arrived.

The UK has voted by 52% to 48% to leave the European Union after 43 years in an historic referendum, a BBC forecast suggests.
London and Scotland voted strongly to stay in the EU but the remain vote has been undermined by poor results in the north of England.
Voters in Wales and the English shires have backed Brexit in large numbers.
The pound fell to its lowest level against the dollar since 1985 as the markets reacted to the results.

DALLAS — Fire officials say more than 30 people attending a Tony Robbins event in Dallas have been treated for burns after the motivational speaker encouraged them to walk on hot coals.

Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans says five people were taken to a hospital Thursday night and that emergency personnel treated the others at the scene for burns to their feet and lower extremities.

The hot coals were spread outside the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center as part of a Robbins seminar called "Unleash the Power Within." The event continues through Sunday.

Representatives for Robbins didn't immediately return messages Friday.

More than 20 people were treated for foot burns after a similar Robbins event in 2012 in San Jose, California.

US Nuclear-Launch Capabilities Run From Floppy Disks. Seriously

Floppy disks are the only thing standing between us and nuclear winter.
Did you think the 8-inch floppy disk died in 90s? Think again. The Government Accountability Office recently found that Department of Defense has been using the ancient technology to coordinate the operational functions of the country’s nuclear forces.

Lt. Col. Valerie Henderson, a DoD spokeswoman, told Agence France-Presse that the department uses the 1970s-era tech “because, in short, it still works.”

According to the report, an IBM Series/1 computer coordinates all the functions related to nuclear bombers, ranker support aircraft, and ballistic missiles.

The GAO said the government is spending a lot more to maintain its computer systems than it is to modernize and develop new technology.

During fiscal year 2015, the government dropped upward of $80 billion on federal IT, 75% of which was dedicated to operation and maintenance — a necessity when dealing with nearly 50-year-old technology.

But the floppy disks’ days are numbered.

“To address obsolescence concerns,” Henderson said, “the floppy drives are scheduled to be replaced with secure digital devices by the end of 2017.”

Ro-Sham-Bo Bronx Style, Sword Beats Pipe

Quote
Let's give the two men who were seen beating the hell out of each other in the Bronx yesterday an A for being original.

 The two unidentified men drew a small, but enthusiastic crowd as they battled each other, one armed with a metal pipe, the other a sword.

Witnesses say they did not know what started the 15-minute brawl, but when the pipe swinging man pounded on an apartment door on Edward L. Grant Hwy, he was greeted by a man armed with a samurai sword.

The pipe swinging man feebly attempted to score blows with his club, but the man armed with the sword used the apartment door as a shield.

The fight ended when the sword-wielding man slashed the arm of the man with the pipe.

The NYPD could not find anyone who could identify the men, so no police report was issued.

Here’s an interesting photo from a recent Delta Airlines flight in the United States… imagine boarding an aircraft and seeing this in the cabin!

Posted earlier this week on the popular website Reddit, the photo was taken by user ‘Ficcolo’ during his flight out of JFK International Airport in New York.

“Last night flying out of JFK....this happened and freaked us out. Disco rave flight!” he commented.

Apparently, the fog could be seen while the aircraft was still grounded, and remained visible until the plane had reached cruising altitude. It reached up to the chest level of passengers.

^^^^ re: fog on plane

I recently flew to Florida and at the gate, there was fog coming out of the vents above the overhead bins and cascading down into the aisle.

It was very visible.

Simple explanation, the air was at its saturation point for humidity at that temperature, thus, fog.

Who said Chinese bikes are crap?

THIS motorcyclist in China was pulled over by police when he was caught carrying an entire minivan on the back of his bike.

He was stopped after being spotted on CCTV hauling the one-tonne minivan held down by nothing but straps.

A police spokesperson said: 'The man said the minivan had already been decommissioned and was on its way to the scrap yard.

Grocer Takamaru Konishi walked away with about 30 grapes sold for $14,000 CAD, roughly $460 per grape.

According to the Guardian, seasonal fruit auctions are popular in Japan, where fruit is considered a status symbol similar to vintage wine in the West.

The Ruby Roman grapes are cultivated in the Ishikawa Prefecture, off the coast of the Sea of Japan.

Each grape is about the size of a ping pong ball. The grapes must have a sugar content of at least 18 per cent and weigh 20g in order to be considered of the Ruby Roman variety.

The bunch has been carefully cultivated in a 14-year long project led by the government.

The Guardian reports that the first batch of Roman Ruby grapes were introduced to fruit auction market in 2008, and prices have been soaring since.

“I was getting cold sweats,” winning bidder Konishi told reporters. “I am so happy and honoured.”

“We will display them at our store before giving our customers a sample taste,” he said.

Quote
According to court documents, Larenzle Coleman told them they were all going to Poplar Bluff to steal a motorcycle from one of the hotels. On their way to Poplar Bluff, he told authorities they saw a black Harley parked at the Days Inn as they passed westbound on Highway 60.

Larenzle and Ronnie allegedly loaded the motorcycle onto the trailer and Weaver came of his hotel room and jumped on the trailer to keep them from leaving.

According to court documents, Ronnie pulled away with the motorcycle and Weaver on the trailer and headed west on Highway 60.......
