Well, not so much weird, as scary-but-totally-expected...
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
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2015/02/10/sex-toy-injuries-surged-after-fifty-shades-of-grey-was-published/
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.

Port Au Prince -  At least 20 people were killed early Tuesday in the Haitian capital after a man on top of a musical group's Carnival float was electrocuted, setting off a panic in which dozens of people were trampled, witnesses and officials said.

I heard something on the morning radio that interest in adult toys has risen something like 60% since that movie premiered here. Looking around our office today, I'm going to lose my lunch knowing 6 out 10 of these people are.....ahem....nevermind....

Sounds reasonable:

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.

The fact that adam and eve has a "sexy adult toy" shopping channel might have something to do with it?

Meanwhile, back in Florida...

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.

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

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/

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

http://thedailycricket.net/2008/06/23/bizzare-arrest-on-rt-95/

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.”
