THE 'CUDDLE CAFE' IS NOW OPEN IN JAPAN

JAPAN OPENS ITS FIRST 'CUDDLE CAFE', AND IT'S AS WEIRD AS YOU THINK

Who wants a cuddle?  How about a slap in the face?
If you answered yes and you're in Tokyo, you're in luck, because a new shop called Soineya is offering both cuddles and slaps — for a price.
According to ABC News, the new specialty shop charges 9,000 yen to snuggle with a girl for one hour in a bed-sized cubical. The shop's proprietor says there is no sex — it's simply an opportunity to cuddle with one of the shop's young women. According to the manager, they are all between 17 and 25, though the reporter who visited described one of the cuddlers as appearing "no more than 15."
And while there's no sex on offer, for a little extra there is a menu of additional services to enhance the cuddling experience. For about $13, the cuddler will put on a costume — there are school uniforms, and a Sailor Moon outfit. If a client wants a particular girl, that's also extra.


Darn!  They beat us to it again!    Craziness.



"VENUS" - STEVE JOBS' DREAM YACHT COMPLETED

STEVE JOBS' CUSTOM-BUILT YACHT THAT HE'LL NEVER USE: 260FT VENUS IS FINALLY FINISHED (AND IT LOOKS JUST LIKE AN APPLE STORE)

Steve Jobs' custom-built yacht that he'll never use: 260ft Venus is finally finished (and it looks just like an Apple store).

Steve Jobs' final masterpiece was a 260-foot yacht that he worked to design as a state-of-the-art wonder of the high seas.

But the Apple CEO never had a chance to use the eye-catching vessel. It was finally completed by a Dutch shipbuilder this month -- one year after his death.

The sleek ship is made of light-weight aluminum and Jobs employed the chief engineer of his Apple stores to help design special glass that allowed the ship to be installed with ten-foot-high windows across the hull.



Call us crazy but we'll wait for the 'newer' version to come out next year before getting all excited...

BRICKS MADE OUT OF COW BLOOD USED BY ARCHITECT

ARCHITECT MAKES BRICKS USING CATTLE BLOOD


(Phys.org)—A recent graduate from the University of Westminster in London, architect Jack Munro has developed a process that uses cattle blood as a binding ingredient in making bricks for use in building construction.


A single cow produces up to eight gallons of blood at slaughter (which is typically thrown away), and blood naturally coagulates. Given these facts, Munro, while still a student, conceived the idea of using this blood to facilitate the formation and solidification of bricks. He began testing various mixtures, and eventually landed on the current formula—blood, an antibacterial agent, an anticoagulant, sand, and water. The result is a crimson brick that is strong enough to be used as a building material. It's waterproof, too, which means it could be used in resource-scarce places such as parts of the Middle East that currently rely on mud bricks for constructing homes and other buildings.


Say it isn't so! What's next?  Cow manure bricks?  Hey!  That might work!

CHINESE MAN SUED WIFE FOR BEING UGLY - AND WON

CHINESE MAN SUES WIFE FOR BEING UGLY, WINS $120,000



A man from northern China divorced and sued his wife earlier this year for being ugly. That’s not a joke.

Neither is this: That man recently won the lawsuit.

That man is Jian Feng and he said his issues with his wife’s looks only began after the couple’s daughter was born. Feng was appalled by the child’s appearance, calling her “incredibly ugly” and saying she resembled neither one of her parents.

With that being the case, Feng initially accused his wife of cheating. It was at that point that his wife, who has not been named, came forward, saying she had spent $100,000 on intense plastic surgeries to drastically change her appearance before she met Feng.

She never told Feng about those surgeries.




Ooops!  She must have forgotten about the offsprings!  Craziness.


ANGRY MOOSE DAMAGES COP CAR

ANGRY BULL MOOSE SMACKS DOWN RCMP CRUISER


A RCMP officer in Prince George, B.C., is recovering at home after an angry bull moose stomped out the window of his cruiser before hoofin' it, early Thursday morning.

The incident began as the officer was parked near the edge of downtown Prince George, shortly after 1 a.m. PT, working on a report on his computer in his cruiser, according to Cpl. Craig Douglass.

That's when he saw a male and female moose crossing the street near the intersection of 17th Avenue and Juniper Street in downtown Prince George.

He decided he needed to act when he saw another vehicle heading toward the pair.

"He put his vehicle into drive and attempted to intercept that vehicle to make sure that that driver was aware of these two moose," said Douglass.

That apparently only provoked the bull moose, which charged the police cruiser, running into the front grill and bumper, stomping onto the hood and smashing the windshield on his way onto the roof.



You wanna come between a moose and his lady... then that's what you get!


WORLD'S THINNEST HOUSE IN POLAND

FILLING A VOID IN WARSAW

THREE years ago, Jakub Szczesny, a Polish architect, was walking through the old Jewish ghetto in Warsaw when he came upon what he described as an “appealing cushion of air” between a prewar apartment building and an 11-story postwar co-op.


Mr. Szczesny, who belongs to a collective called Centrala, which is devoted to experimental architecture, got the far-fetched idea of building a house in the incredibly thin gap between them. “I fell in love with a space between two buildings from different periods,” he said. “I decided to make a link.”

Mr. Szczesny, 39, began to imagine an ideal resident for the home, and settled on Etgar Keret, an Israeli writer whose reputation for producing collections of very short stories, like his most recent “Suddenly, a Knock on the Door,” marked him as someone accustomed to working within tight parameters, and whose Jewish heritage and Polish roots offered a moving connection to Warsaw.




Well, look on the bright side.  One can now shower, sh*t and shave all at once!

COP ARRESTED OVER FAILED PLOT TO 'SLOW COOK' AND EAT WOMEN

NYPD OFFICER GILBERTO VALLE ARRESTED BY FBIOVER FIALED PLOT TO KIDNAP WOMEN AND COOK THEM 

A city cop with a taste for human flesh was charged Thursday with plotting to kidnap, torture, “slow cook” and eat women he tracked down through law enforcement databases.

Accused cannibal cop Gilberto Valle, 28, was living a double life — a married dad and civil servant who moonlighted as a secret psycho straight out of a James Patterson crime thriller, federal authorities revealed.


Like the diabolical character in Patterson’s made-for-the-big-screen “Alex Cross” novel, Valle is accused of using high-tech surveillance to track would-be victims, even worming his way into their lives while plotting to kidnap, rape and kill them.

He once boasted in an instant message to a depraved ally that his oven was “big enough to fit one of these girls if I folded their legs.”




WTH?? Well, to all you dick-chopping women out there...you've just met your match!  Craziness we tell ya... craziness!!





SHARK THAT FELL OUT OF SKY UNTO GOLF COURSE NOW BACK IN OCEAN

SHARK FALLS OUT OF SKY ONTO GOLF COURSE, IS PUT BACK IN OCEAN AND SWIMS AWAY


SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif. — Nobody yelled "Fore!" at a Southern California golf course when a 2-foot-long shark dropped out of the sky and flopped around on the 12th tee.

The 2-pound leopard shark was apparently plucked from the ocean by a bird then dropped on San Juan Hills Golf Club, Melissa McCormack, director of club operations, said Thursday.

No one was teeing up when the shark fell Monday afternoon, although some golfers had just left the area, she said.


A course marshal, who makes sure players maintain an appropriate pace, saw something moving around on the tee and went to investigate. He found the shark bleeding with puncture wounds, where it seems the bird had held it in its grasp.

The marshal put the shark in his golf cart and drove it back to the clubhouse.


Apparently it's the first time they've heard of a shark falling from the sky as Mr. McCormack later went on to say:
"We have your typical coyotes, skunks and the occasional mountain lion, but nothing like a shark".
Aaaallrighty then. Thanks for setting that straight.



WOMAN FAKES KIDNAPPING TO GET A DAY OFF AT WORK

WOMAN 'FAKES HER OWN KIDNAP TO GET DAY OFF WORK' (PHOTO)


Skivers! Fancy a day off work? It's probably best to stick to the old common-or-garden "tummy upset" excuse, rather than coming up with a more inventive story, if this woman's experience is anything to go by...

Sheila Bailey Eubank, 48, from Texas, is accused of faking her own abduction because she wanted more attention and a day away from the workplace, according to WWLTV.com.

Eubank's arrest warrant states she was found bound by rope in the back seat of her car. She told police she'd been kidnapped at knifepoint by an unidentified man and made to drive around San Antonio while he carried out drug deals.


However, on further investigation, it turned out Eubank had actually been buying a lottery ticket from a petrol station at the exact time she claims to have been kidnapped. CCTV footage showed her looking "healthy, unhurried and pleasant" as she withdrew cash from an ATM and then made her purchase.



Lawdy, lawdy!  If it's that bad at work honey... it's time to call it quits!

WORLD'S STRONGEST BEER - ARMAGGEDON

THE WORLD'S STRONGEST BEER, BREWMEISTER'S ARMAGEDDON, CONCOCTED BY SCOTTISH BREWERY


Paging the Guinness World Records. A Scottish brewery claims it has produced the world's strongest beer, Brewmeister's Armageddon, with an ABV of 65 percent.

For some perspective, most beers have an alcohol content of between 3 to 7 percent.

The brewery, Brewmeister, says on its official web site that the beer's ingredients include crystal malt, wheat, flaked oats and 100 percent Scottish spring water. The beer then undergoes a process called freeze fermenting, which involves cooling the beer to freezing. The water freezes, but the alcohol does not -- when the ice is removed a very strong beer remains.

Drinkers are advised to "consume this like a fine whisky":








We'll just have to try it out and get back to you all... when our brain returns to normal.



QVC PRESENTER FAINTS ON LIVE TV AS CO-HOST KEEPS IT GOING

THE SHOW MUST GO ON!  VIEWERS' SHOCK AS QVC PRESENTER FAINTS MID-SENTENCE ON AIR - AND UNFAZED CO-HOST CONTINUES SEGMENT


One minute she was gushing about a new kid-friendly tablet. The next, QVC electronics expert, Cassie Slane, had fainted on live television in front of millions of viewers across America.

Fans of the shopping channel watched in shock as in mid-description of the FabTab Pro Tablet, Ms Slane suddenly began patting her chest and overcome by dizziness, fell into her co-host, Dan Wheeler last night.

The consummate professional, Mr Wheeler however, persisted with the segment while cameras cut to a shot of the Android tablet and he continued to talk about its features.


'Kids love tablets. They love playing with tablets, they love the games,' Slane told Mr Wheeler before stumbling over her words and crumpling.

Confused by her actions, Mr Wheeler asked: 'Are you okay?' Before quickly regaining his on-air composure and continuing with the spot.



WTF?  And apparently this aint the first time she's done this!  The story later goes on to say "It is not the first time a QVC presenter has passed out during live recording, and Ms Slane has collapsed on QVC in the past. In 2010 she slumped over an e-reader she was demonstrating."   Uhm, miss QVC, we think we'd take that as a sign??   Craziness.

'BLACK MADAM' CLOSED BUTT SURGERY WITH KRAZY GLUE

'BLACK MADAM' USED KRAZY GLUE TO CLOSE BUTT-ENHANCING SURGERY WOUNDS


PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Philadelphia woman known as “the Black Madam” performed deadly cosmetic surgery on a London dancer in an airport hotel room, then used Krazy Glue to close the wounds and fled when the client went into respiratory distress, a witness testified Wednesday.

A judge upheld a third-degree murder charge against Padge Gordon after the victim’s friend testified about getting silicone injections to enlarge their buttocks in February 2011.

Theresa Gyamfi testified that Gordon gave them the injections in their room at the Hampton Inn and left when 20-year-old Claudia Aderotimi started having trouble breathing. The Londoners had no contact information for the woman they’d met through an intermediary online and knew only as “Lillian.”

Gyamfi, 22, said they had had the same procedure done by Gordon at the hotel months earlier and had no problems. They then came back for a “touch-up.” But Aderotimi had trouble breathing almost immediately after the second procedure, Gyamfi said. Aderotimi died at a hospital hours later.

Gordon, who remains in jail on $750,000 bond, looked down at the defense table when Gyamfi described learning of her friend’s death and viewing the body at the hospital.

Delaware County Medical Examiner Frederic Hellman testified that the industrial-grade silicone went into the woman’s blood, liver, lungs and brain. He said Aderotimi died of a pulmonary embolism.

NO MORE CARRYING YOUR LUGGAGE - THIS ONE FOLLOWS YOU AROUND

THE SUITCASE THAT FOLLOWS YOU AROUND THE AIRPORT


No more dragging around heavy luggage; a suitcase has been invented that follows its owner round the airport.

The hands-free "hop!" suitcase locks on to a signal from the traveller's phone, and rolls after it; a bizarre sight, but handy for those not able or simply not wanting to lug heavy cargo around.

If the signal is lost then the suitcase locks up and makes the phone vibrate, alerting the owner to the lost connection.




HOP! Suitcase

The hop! suitcase works by locking onto a Bluetooth signal from a specific phone. The signal is received and triangulated by three sensors located in the suitcase.

A microprocessor then localises the phone and how it is moving, and drives two caterpillar tracks to get the suitcase moving.



Oh my gawd!  The world is getting lazier and lazier by the day.  At least if you back up and trip over it... it will follow you to the hospital!  Craziness...

4 BILLION-YEAR-OLD METEORITE UNKNOWINGLY USED AS DOORSTOP

|0 comments
FAMILY DISCOVERS DOORSTOP IS 4-BILLION-YEAR-OLD METEORITE


The doorstop on Donna and George Lewis's porch traveled a long way to get there.

The rock, something of a family heirloom, was found in a cow pasture near Tazewell, Tenn, in the 1930s by Donna Lewis's grandfather, the late Tilmon Brooks.

The object of curiosity, which long served as a doorstop, a garden ornament, and even had been painted green, turns out to be a very rare and very real meteorite, possibly 4 ½ billion years old.

It wasn't until George Lewis put a metal detector to the object, and it read off the charts, that the couple realized they this was no ordinary rock.

When the Lewis family brought the object to Jerry Cook, chair of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Eastern Kentucky University, he suspected it was special.

According to the school's press release, "tests at the University of Tennessee confirmed the object's origins: it was probably part of a known meteorite strike that had first turned up evidence in Tazewell in 1853."



All's well that ends well...



ELDERLY MAN STUCK WITH 25K WELFARE BILL AFTER RUSSIAN BRIDE LEAVES HIM

RUSSIAN BRIDE LEAVES ELDERLY MAN WITH $25K WELFARE BILL

An 82-year-old B.C. pensioner is on the hook to the government for $25,000, after marrying a Russian woman who left him the day after she got permanent resident status in Canada.

“Several times I thought I will have a nervous breakdown over this,” said Heinz Munz, of Black Creek.

Munz said he believes his now ex-wife used him, with the help of her daughter, to get legal status in Canada. He is going public because the B.C. government is now forcing him to pay for social assistance she collected after she left.

“When she applied for assistance, they should have told me,” said Munz. "They never did.”

The first bill he received was for $24,899.34. He paid an initial lump sum, but still owes almost $17,000. He lives on a monthly pension income of $1,600 and owns a home.

“The warning was — if I don’t pay — they will go after my property,” said Munz, who is now making monthly payments of $500. "I was scared they would go after my property."

Under federal rules, any Canadian who marries and sponsors a foreigner is legally responsible for supporting them for three years after their spouse gets permanent residency.

If they collect social assistance in that period, the sponsor must pay it back, even if they get divorced in the interim.




Poor fella.. he never even seen it coming...  After he hooked and lined her, he shoulda just sinked her!

PLOTS SELLING FOR $10 IN CANADA

CANADIAN TOWN SELLS $10 PLOTS OF LAND


Got an extra ten bucks? If so, you, too, could be the owner of a sparkling new home in Reston, Manitoba, a rural prairie town in Southern Manitoba bordering Saskatchewan on the west and North Dakota on the south.

In an effort to jump on the oil boom in that part of the country, officials are once again selling undeveloped land for a mere $10, an initiative they first started in 2010. Back then they had 14 lots for sale, 11 of which have houses built on them today, economic development officer Tanis Chalmers told ABC News .

That plan was so successful that in September the Rural Municipality of Pipestone, of which Reston is the biggest town (population: 550), decided to put up an additional 10 lots for sale, along with the three left from 2010. Nine remain, "But I've had offers on them already from both Canada and the U.S," said Chalmers, adding that the initiative has been so effective that the local school finally "has a standalone kindergarten class."


Agriculture and oil are the main industries in the town, which was founded as a railway point for the Canadian Pacific Railway, but Chalmers says she hopes to attract small business, too. "We need to have supporting services to support the people living here and coming," she said. "We'd like to see a new hotel here, a new restaurant, a bar."

The plan is pretty straightforward: To purchase a property, wannabe homeowners have to sign an agreement and put down a $1,000 deposit. Once a lot is purchased, owners have 90 days to begin construction, and 12 months to complete it. As soon as the town receives your occupancy permit, they will refund $990 of the original down payment.





No Walmarts, no strip clubs, bars...hmmm, we don't know.  We'll have to think about it...



BROTHERS WAITED 6 YRS. TO CLAIM LOTTERY WINNINGS

NY BROTHERS WAIT YEARS TO CLAIM $5M LOTTERY PRIZE


SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) -- Two brothers from central New York have claimed a $5 million lottery prize for a scratch-off ticket they bought at their parents' Syracuse store six years ago, state officials said.
Andy Ashkar, 34, of Camillus, and Nayel Ashkar, 36, of Cicero, came forward March 1, just 11 days before the top prize in the "$500,000,000 Extravaganza" scratch-off game would have expired, New York Lottery said.

Andy Ashkar said he bought the ticket at his parents' convenience store in Syracuse in 2006 and decided to share the winnings with his brother, officials said.

The agency said the younger brother said he waited so long to claim his prize because he was concerned the windfall could "negatively influence" his life if he didn't plan properly before being publicly introduced as the winner. Andy Ashkar also told lottery officials that he also didn't want the windfall to influence his engagement and subsequent marriage.




Hey!  Better late than NEVAH!

UMA THURMAN BABY NAME: ACTRESS NAMES DAUGHTER ROSALIND ARUSHA ARKADINA ALTALUNE FLORENCE THURMAN-BUSSON


What on earth does someone named Uma Karuna Thurman name her daughter? Turns out, she couldn't really decide either.

A rep for Thurman has told People magazine that the 3-month-old baby's name is -- get ready for it -- Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson, or "Luna" for short. In Roman mythology, Luna is the goddess of the moon.

This is the first child for the actress and boyfriend Arpad Busson, a financier. Thurman has two children from her previous marriage to Ethan Hawke, Maya Ray and Levon Thurman-Hawke.




WTF?  Any longer and the poor kid will be trippin' over it!  Craziness....

STUDENTS SUSPENDED AFTER SEEING TOPLESS PIC OF TEACHER ON SCHOOL-ISSUED iPAD


ANDERSON, Ind. - Some students at Highland Middle School in Anderson have been suspended after their teacher accidentally synced a topless picture of herself to a school-issued iPad.

Joshua Troutt, 13, said he and three other students were playing a game on the iPad in class when one of the students pressed a button and a photograph of the teacher's partially bare chest was revealed.

"It's not our fault that she had the photo on there," Troutt said. "We couldn't do anything not to look at it, if it just popped up when he pressed the button. It was her fault that she had the photo on there. Her iPhone synched to it. She had to have pressed something to make all of her photos synch on there."

Anderson police said Thursday that investigators determined that the picture was "from the neck down, with partial exposure."



The kids have a point there.  And uhm, what did the principal have to say after viewing the said photo?  Could this have had any bearing on the case? 'Cause something just doesn't sound right.  We'll just have to view the photo ourselves before we make any further comment...

COMPETITVE EATERS TAKE ON POUTINE IN WORLD POUTINE EATING CHAMPIONSHIP


Pic source
TORONTO -- If your gastronomical dreams are filled with images of fresh-cut fries topped with piping-hot gravy and rich and rubbery cheese curds, then downtown Toronto was the place to be Saturday.

Late that afternoon, 15 competitive eaters from all around North America faced off at Yonge-Dundas Square. They gathered for the 3rd annual Smoke’s Poutinerie World Poutine Eating Championship, where a total of $5,000 in prize money was up for grabs, with proceeds from the event going to the Daily Bread Food Bank.

Competitors included New York’s Tim Janus, who once ate 141 pieces of sushi in 6 minutes. He joined Chicago’s Pat “Deep Dish” Bertoletti, who holds 38 world records. Not to mention Philadelphia’s Bob Shoudt, known for once downing 23 pounds of salmon chowder in 6 minutes - with a spoon.

The event also featured two Canadians: Barrie native Meredith “The Deep Fried Diva” Boxberger, 27, and Kitchener’s Ben Do, 24.

Both competitors knew they had a challenge ahead of them.

“It’s a pretty stacked field,” Boxberger said as she prepped for the contest. “I’m going to try and keep up with the big boys ... Where I’ll end up, we’ll see.”

In the end, Boxberger finished in 6th and took home $200 for polishing off 11 boxes of poutine in the time allowed. Do, unfortunately, finished deeper in the field.

World champion eater Joey Chestnut took first place and $2,000 after finishing 19 boxes. Tim Janus and Bob Shoudt tied for second with 17 boxes.


WTF?  A Canadian dish winning out to Americans.  Smarten up guys!  All together now - Buuuuuuuuuuurp!



Poutine (Quebec French pronunciation : put͡sɪn) is a Quebec dish, made with french fries, topped with brown gravy and curd cheese. Sometimes additional ingredients are added.



BEST BEFORE/AFTER FACEPLANT EVER OF THE MAN WHO ACCIDENTALLY SHOT HIMSELF IN THE FACE

|0 comments
RESULTS OF MOST EXTENSIVE FACE TRANSPLANT UNVEILED SEVEN MONTHS LATER

The results of the most extensive face transplant ever have been unveiled, seven months after a team of 100 doctors operated on a US man who shot himself in the face.

Pictures of Richard Lee Norris, from Hillsville, Virginia, were released earlier this week showing the results of a 36-hour final surgery performed in March by a 100-strong team.

Mr Norris was injured in a gun accident 15 years ago where he shot himself in the face. He lost his nose, sense of smell and part of his tongue after the accident, and has since undergone multiple life-saving surgeries.

In March, Mr Norris was given a new face, teeth, tongue and jaw during the extensive transplant. As a result, he is now able to feel his face, shave, brush his teeth and is slowly regaining his sense of smell as well as his speech.




Now this is CRAZY and S-weet!  Great job docs!  Keep that chin up Richard... you're looking great!

COPS TASERED BLIND MAN - MISTOOK CANE FOR SWORD

POLICE USE TASER ON BLIND MAN AFTER STICK MISTAKEN FOR SWORD

A police force has apologised after an officer used a Taser on a blind man whose white stick was mistaken for a sword.

Colin Farmer, 61, was stunned by police following reports of a man walking through Chorley with a samurai sword.

Ch Supt Stuart Williams, of Lancashire Police, said the force had "deep regrets" and had "clearly put this man through a traumatic experience".

Mr Farmer was taken to hospital for treatment and later discharged.

"It felt like I was grabbing an electricity pylon," he said.

Mr Farmer, who has suffered two strokes, said he thought he was being attacked by thugs.

He was walking to a pub to meet friends on Friday when the officer fired the Taser. It forced him to drop his stick and he fell to the ground, he said.

He said the experience had left him "shaking like a leaf" and scared to go outside.

The case has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

A Lancashire Police spokesman said the incident was being investigated and the officer's Taser had been withdrawn.



Cane mistaken for a sword? And not just any sword people but a SAMURAI sword!!  Lawd what have these cops been smokin'.

RANDY RAMJEET BECOMES THE WORLD'S OLDES DAD - AT 96


A FARMER has become the world’s oldest dad aged 96 — beating the record he set himself two years ago.

Ramjeet Raghav was at his wife Shakuntala’s side as second son Ranjeet was born weighing 4lb 7oz.

The former wrestler had gained the world record in 2010 when Shakuntala — said to be 60 — gave birth to Vikramjeet.


Last year Ramjeet told The Sun fatherhood was taking its toll and he didn’t want a second child. But he said yesterday: “I feel lucky to have two healthy sons. It will be tough, but I’m a happy man.”

The family live in a two-room hut in Kharkhoda, India, and Ramjeet earns £35 a month from farm work.





WTF?  So, how many diapers will they be changing here now??  He's 96 and the wifey 60 and together they still make babies??? Stop it!  This aint cool no more.

NORFOLK TEEN SLEPT THROUGH CAR CRASHING INTO BEDROOM


A Norfolk teenager has described how he slept through the moment a car crashed into his bedroom.

Ben London, 15, was in bed at his home in Strumpshaw, near Norwich, when the Audi A4 crashed through the wall, sending bricks and rubble flying.

However, he escaped with minor injuries and said he only woke up when he heard his mother shouting.

The car has remained embedded in the wall since the crash on Sunday but was due to be removed on Thursday.

The crash happened just before 02:00 BST in Beech Drive.

"I actually slept through when the car came though," he said.

"I was woken up by my mum shouting.

"I couldn't see anything, just white, because the car lights were lighting up the dust and it was just like a big white cloud.



Say what??? Slept through a car crashing into your room? Is he for real?  That's it!  No more staying up till 4 o'clock in the A M for YOU!  Craziness...

MAN PHOTOGRAPHS 'UFO' FLOATING IN THE CLOUDS MOMENTS BEFORE TEN DEAD BIRDS APPEAR IN GARDEN




A UFO-like object floating in the clouds was caught on camera on the same day ten dead birds were found in a nearby garden.

Calum Sherwood, 23, was shocked to see the outline of what appeared to be a UFO while riding on a bus in Salterbeck, south of Workington, Cumbria, on Monday.

Sharon Larkin, UFO enthusiast and Mr Sherwood’s friend who lives nearby, found ten dead birds in her garden that day.

Ms Larkin claims that ‘dead birds are associated with sightings of UFOs’, and experts are divided over the cause - with some believing it could be a rare cloud formation, while others believe it could be ice crystals from a jet engine

She claims the area, which is close to Sellafield nuclear power plant, was a hotspot for unusual activity.

Ms Larkin said: ‘There is something about this picture. The line around the edge of the UFO is very clear and very specific.



Wow.  Those gosh darn flying saucers must had their invisible shiels on again.  Poor birds.

BANANA BOAT SUNSCREENS RECALLED AFTER REPORTS OF USERS CATCHING ON FIRE

TORONTO -- The maker of Banana Boat sunscreen is recalling some of its spray-on products in Canada and the U.S. following reports that a handful of people have caught on fire after applying the lotion and coming into contact with an open flame. Energizer Holdings Canada said there have been five reports of people catching fire after applying the sunscreen in the last year. Four burn cases were reported in the U.S. and one in Canada. The company is pulling two types of continuous spray Banana Boat sun care products from stores across Canada -- Banana Boat Ultra Defense SPF 60 Spray Sunscreen and Banana Boat Sport Performance SPF 60 Spray Sunscreen.

The company says there is a "potential risk of product igniting on the skin if contact is made with a source of ignition before the product is completely dry."



WTF?  Talk about being sun-burned and sun-fried.  Let's just hope this product from Energizer Holdings doesn't keep on burning and burning and....



There's always another option:

Those chinese nylon face masks....
If you're looking for ways to avoid sunburns on this very hot not-quite holiday weekend, Reuters photographer Aly Song snapped some shots of a fairly radical method employed by some beach-goers in Qingdao, China Friday: Nylon face masks. The masked bathing beauties are getting some notice here in the overheated (and somewhat news deprived) United States with Yahoo News and The Wall Street Journal among others already pointing their readers to the photos.

PRESCHOOL TEACHER CAUGHT HAULING 19 KIDS IN MINICAR, GETS A TIMEOUT

Nuclear physicists. Tornado chasers. Presidential debate room spinners. All have easier jobs trying to handle unpredictable energy than a typical preschool teacher dealing with a throng of four to six-year-olds. It's not the best choice of profession for someone who decides the best way to take a field trip involves packing 19 children into a car the size of a Honda Fit.
According to reports from Pretoria, South Africa, teacher Melanie Minnie from the Rietfontein nursery school decided last Wednesday to haul her 31 wards to a mall about a mile away for a celebratory lunch. While such a trip would involve a convoy of minivans at most American preschools, for reasons that no one has yet to unearth, Minnie decided to haul all of the children herself in a Renault Clio, a subcompact five-door hatchback. Mall patrons apparently noticed children tumbling from the Clio like circus clowns and called police, who found three children in Minnie's front seat, 11 in the rear seat and six in the hatch.

Minnie admitted to police she was at the tail end of her hauling -- as she had already delivered the 31 kids to the restaurant, and taken back another 12 to the preschool while leaving the last 19 on the restaurant's playground during her shuttling. In the United States, Minnie would have faced multiple charges, several lawsuits and at least one Lifetime movie of the week portrayal for her poor judgment. Instead, local police gave her a traffic citation worth $170 and arranged to have the children toted back in less extreme conditions, noting that she couldn't be punished for the other trips since they weren't witnessed.

"It is the first time we went on an outing," Minnie told the Beeld newspaper. "And the last time."



WTF?  Minnie hauled 19 kids in a mini?  Didn't she realize there's a mini-mom requirement?   Craziness... 


MOM BREASTFEEDS HER PUG DOG BUT NOT HER KIDS

MOTHER WHO BOTTLE FED HER CHILDREN NOW BREASTFEEDS HER PUG DOG.

Terri Graham is finally the hawt bixch mother she always craved to be.

Terri Graham a mother of two unfortunately wasn’t able to breastfeed her two children when she first had them but that has all changed as she has now taken to breast feeding her 9 year old daughters pug dog called Spider.

In an interview with UK tabloid Closer (yes that should in of itself be a warning right there kids) Graham reckons that although some might consider her a freak (not me, I was breast fed by a pack of wild wallabies in the outback of Australia) she insists breastfeeding the dog nourishes it as well as having the benefit of making her feel like a better mom.

“People may say I’m a freak, but having Spider suck on my boob means I finally feel complete and a better mother. Her tongue tickles and I do feel her teeth, but she latches on in a way that they don’t hurt me. I breastfeed Spider in front of the kids and they think it’s amazing.”

Graham, who is from California, claimed that the dog developed a taste for breast milk in 2010 after licking the nipple of a bottle she had pumped for her then-newborn son. She says she has breastfed the dog for about 2 years.


We swear folks... it's real because we just can't make this ṢΉḯṭ up!

SANDEEP SINGH, MASSACHUSETTS MAN, WINS $30.5 MILLION MEGA MILLIONS PRIZE AFTER GETTING DUMPED (VIDEO)


A young man from Massachusetts who was recently dumped by his girlfriend snagged a $30.5 million Mega Millions prize this week.

According to the Associated Press, Sandeep Singh claimed his lottery prize on Wednesday, opting to take home a one-time lump sum payment of about $23 million (or $16 million after taxes).

The 22-year-old, who goes by the nickname 'Sunny,' says he hopes the woman who broke his heart won't come calling now that he's a millionaire.

“She broke up with me, but right now, I’m not really worried about it,” he said, during a press conference on Wednesday. “I was heartbroken at first, but now I’m getting over it.”

Singh, who currently juggles two jobs to help his family "make ends meet," says he had bought four Mega Millions tickets after he had won $4 on a scratch-off Lotto card. The young man, from Hyannis, Mass., added that his sister had picked out the winning ticket.

“I was in my sister’s room on the computer reading the numbers,” he said at the press conference. “I didn’t know what to do. I dropped the ticket.”




Wow!  Karma can be a bitch sometimes!  Here's to many more sunny days... uhm Sunny!

ELK BANISHED FROM RANCH FOR FALLING IN LOVE WITH COW

ELK BANISHED FROM 100 MILE RANCH B.C. AFTER FALLING IN LOVE WITH COW

Pic source

100 MILE HOUSE, B.C.—Somewhere east of this Cariboo community wanders an enormous bull elk, stripped of its six-point antlers and a misplaced attraction for one of Greg Messner’s cows.

The elk, a loner that had been turning up at the century-old 100 Mile Ranch to check out Messner’s herd for three years, was relocated earlier this month for its own safety and for the probity of the cow.

“He stuck around for a couple of days the first year,” said Messner, whose wife has had the ranch in her family for its entire history.

“Then last year, he was just hanging around again for a couple of weeks and not really doing anything, just hanging around and looking at the cows. This year, he decided to go for it.”

Messner said the elk’s visits have been a curiosity. Elk are so rare in the area that Messner and anyone else who stopped by to have a look at the impressive creature in the pasture simply call it The Elk.

“It’s kind of like the Queen,” Messner explained. “There’s only one of them.”

This year, the beast decided to stay a while and ended up mingling in the herd for about two months during its rutting season.

One of Messner’s cows was also in heat and the pair became a freakish but constant spectacle.

“If you were there watching, it would be an X-rated movie. Several times a day,” Messner said through a chuckle.

“He was pretty aggressive. He’d put his head down with his great big antlers and poke the little calves and push them away and send them for a little ride once in a while and flick them around.”



Hey!  What can we say?  This crazy world is a huge place!  There's always someone falling in love with someone somewhere....

TINY 'PURSE-FITTING' CHIHUAHUA DECLARED DANGEROUS

|0 comments

TINY, 3-LB CHIHUAHUA DESIGNATED 'DANGEROUS DOG'

A Windsor, Ont., chihuahua that can easily fit inside a purse has been designated a dangerous dog after a letter carrier claims it bit her on an ankle.

The woman didn't want to make a big fuss about it, but her manager decided to file a police report on the dog attack based on Canada Post policies.

The designation means the owner is required to muzzle Molly, who weighs three pounds, and display a dangerous dog warning sign on the property because officials say "it's a danger to society."

“We don’t even know if we can find a muzzle because her mouth is so tiny,” said owner Mitzie Scott.
Mitzie and her husband Jason own the dog and said the designation is a joke.

“We have to warn people upon coming onto our premise that we have a vicious dog on site," she said.
The city is also forcing the couple to purchase a $1-million insurance policy on the chihuahua.

“It just seems so severe to me. We love the dog and we can’t get rid of the dog, but also that’s a very expensive monthly expense," said Mitzie.


Mitzie said her husband was doing yard work when it happened.
“I didn’t realize when I let the dog out that he had the side gate open and she kind of snuck out the front," said Mitzie. “I didn’t see anything, I just heard her bark.”

Soon after the alleged bite, city and health officials arrived at the home and quarantined the dog, she said. The couple wanted to appeal the decision because they didn't see the bite mark, a picture or even a medical report.
Mitzie said the dog has never bit anyone before.

“I didn’t know what my dog did, maybe my dog jumped up and scratched her," said Mitzie "I didn’t see it, I just took her word for it.




Lord! I hope they can find some elastic band for these little 'ankle biters' before it escaltes into something more.  Next thing they'll be saying is that we have to muzzle our cats... and babies.


MAN SHOWED UP AT CRIME SCENE WEARING BATMAN OUTFIT

'BATMAN' CHARGED WITH OBSTRUCTING POLICE IN THE US

PETOSKEY, Mich. - Police say they arrested a U.S. man after he showed up at a crime scene wearing a Batman outfit because he wouldn't leave them alone.

"He wouldn't clear the scene, and we had a canine out there, and he kept screwing up the scent," State Police Sgt. Jeff Gorno told the Petoskey News-Review. "He said he wanted to help us look for the driver."


Mark Wayne Williams, 33, was charged in Saturday's incident with resisting and obstructing police in an investigation.

Williams also was arrested last year after police received a report of a man dressed as Batman on the roof of a local business. He was sentenced to six months of probation, during which he was forbidden to wear costumes.




Uhm, someone, please get him some help.  Arresting him is not going to do the trick.  He REALLY thinks he's batman...  Craziness.

THE WOMAN WHO CAME BACK FROM THE DEAD

|3 comments
'THE DOCTORS HAD GIVEN UP.  THEY SAID HER HEART HAD STOPPED AND SHE HAD BRAIN DAMAGE.  BUT SHE'S FINE'

Jeremy Laurance on the miracle of the woman who came back from the dead – and why it matters for us all.

I have shaken her hand, held her gaze and spent more than an hour chatting with Tasleem Rafiq and her children and I can report that she is no ghost. The 52-year-old mother of four is very much alive.

Quite how she comes to be alive is, however, a medical mystery. A month ago, she had a heart attack and stopped breathing. What happened next has astonished doctors, shocked her family and raised questions about medical practice. For Mrs Rafiq has returned from the dead.

Sitting in her terraced house in Reading, which she shares with three of her children, she shows no sign of the ordeal she has endured. "God will take you when he chooses. Everyone was praying and God said: 'I am going to leave this lady.' I am a very lucky mother," she said. She does not want her picture in a national newspaper but she looks younger than her 52 years.

She has had multiple sclerosis for 20 years, cannot walk and occasionally gets chest infections which develop into pneumonia, requiring hospital admission. But on 14 September, she collapsed. An ambulance was called and resuscitation commenced. It continued, on the floor of the front room, in the ambulance on the way to the Royal Berkshire Hospital and in the accident-and-emergency (A&E) department, but without success

Her son Fezaen, 28, said: "We were waiting [in the A&E department] when the doctor came out and said: 'I have to tell you that we have been trying to get your mother's heart started for 45 minutes and we haven't had any luck. Unfortunately she has died.'"

The family, in shock, asked to see the body, to bid goodbye. They were shown into a private room and warned that because their mother had been injected with adrenalin her body would make involuntary movements and they should not think that these were signs of life. It was 11.30am.

Fezaen said: "She was lying with her eyes rolled back gasping. We were sitting with her praying. I was on the right and my brother was on the left when he said, 'She's looking at you.' We called the nurse and asked if that was normal. She said yes, it was quite normal."

Over the next two hours, this scenario was played out several times as the family struggled to convince nurses that their mother might still be alive. A doctor was summoned, who examined the "corpse" and declared there was, indeed, a faint pulse.





Yikes!  We better check how long you really have to be dead before they start pulling out organs...


HUGE ELK-SHAPED GEOGLYPH FOUND IN RUSSIA

IMMENSE ELK-SHAPED GEOGLYPH FOUND IN RUSSIA, RESEMBLING THE NAZCA LINES OF PERU


A giant animal-shaped "geoglyph" (enormous drawing on the earth) has been found in Russia's Ural Mountains, in a scientific discovery made with the assistance of Google Earth satellite images.

You can see a satellite map image of the elk-shaped geoglyph at Wikimapia, where some enterprising nerd has already sketched out its outlines.

The massive structure, about 900 feet long at its widest, is located close to Lake Zjuratkul in Russia's Ural Mountains, to the north of Kazakhstan, says LiveScience's Owen Jarus, and is thought to be older than the famous South American Nazca lines, although this is not yet confirmed.
Researchers have found that the little-studied geoglyph appears to contain passages and walls, centered around the creature's hooves and muzzle.




Ok.  That's it!  They are trying to tell us something here.  Spit it out already!

MOOSE KILLED WITH A SINGLE SHOT - FROM A 95 YR. OLD WOMAN

FEISTY 95-YEAR-OLD WOMAN KILLS MOOSE WITH A SINGLE SHOT WHILE HUNTING IN NEWFOUNDLAND


HALIFAX—Hours after 95-year-old Laura Wood returned home from a hunting trip in Newfoundland with a moose she felled with a single shot, she was already looking forward to her next conquest.

The hunter of 79 years from Yarmouth County, N.S., was making plans to head out to the family cabin the next day to prepare for this fall’s deer season. In all the years she’s been hunting them, she’s only come up empty-handed once — last year.

Wood’s dream of bagging a moose came true on her final day at Sandy Lake Lodge in Grand Falls-Windsor, N.L. The lifelong hunter, who had been barraged with calls of congratulations since her return last week, couldn’t see what all the fuss was about.

“Well I just shot it,” said Wood, a mother of four. “Since I’ve been back people have been so good to me. The phone’s been ringing off the hook. I don’t know why they call me. I’m not worth it.”

While in Newfoundland she was accompanied by a handful of family members, including her son Laurie, who arose with her each day at 4:30 a.m., traipsed through miles of backcountry and endured the effects of tropical storm Leslie over two full days. But their determination paid off when Wood dropped the 600-pound cow with deadly precisi




What the hell???!!    We can't even shoot a pic without screwing it up.  Craziness.

SWISS COWS NOW ABLE TO TEXT WHEN HORNY

SWISS COWS ABLE TO TELL FARMERS THEY'RE IN HEAT VIA TEXT


ZOLLIKOFEN, Switzerland (CBS Seattle) – Swiss dairy cows may now be able to tell farmers that they are in heat using text message technology.

Sensors implanted in the cows are reportedly able to detect the shift using electronic heat detectors, according to The New York Times.

These sensors then send a text message to the farmer’s phone. In addition to getting an alert, participating farmers can also opt to receive messages in either German, French or Italian – the three primary languages of Switzerland – as well as English or Spanish.







We thought sexting was illegal... even for cows.  And uh, shouldn't the cows be texting the bulls instead of the farmers??? Oh well, whatever.


ONLY IN DUBAI: COMING SOON - SWIPE AND FLY IN 22 SECONDS

FROM JANUARY, YOU CAN ENTER AND EXIT DUBAI AIRPORT IN 22 SECONDS

Passengers will just need to swipe their passports at e-Gates to enter and exit the airports.


Dubai will introduce self-process e-Gates or “Smart Gates” whereby the passengers won’t have to stand in long passport  control queues but  walk straight through the gates by swiping their passports at the e-Gate scanner, said a senior official.

The e-Gates will be equipped with automatic identification system, automatic iris scan and facial imprint, thus allowing passengers to check in or check out of the airport within 22 seconds without entry or exit stampings on their passports, said Major General Mohammed Al Marri, Director of the Department of Residency and Foreigners Affairs at the Dubai Naturalisation and Residency Department.

In the first stage, 100 e-Gates will be installed at Terminal 3 in January 2013 and by the end of 2014 all the terminals will be equipped with these e-Gates.

Thani Abdullah Al Zafeen, General Manager of Emaratech, said passengers will be required to just swipe their passports at e-Gate scanner and walk through the airport.

“E-Gate will enable quicker passenger traffic and improve security. In case of a fake passport, e-Gate will prevent passengers from entering and alert the officer on duty,” Al Zafeen added.

Data by Statistics Department of DNRD in Dubai showed that the number of passengers travelling through Dubai Airports exceeded 50 million last year, including 30 million transit passengers.


WTF?  22 seconds??  Doors don't even close that fast.

BAUMGARTNER FINALLY BREAKS RECORD SKYDIVE

FELIX BAUMGARTNER BREAKS RECORD FOR HIGH-ALTITUDE SKYDIVING

"Sometimes you have to go up really high to understand how small you are" – Felix Baumgartner, standing outside his capsule at an altitude of 24 miles (39 km) on October 14, 2012.

Well, Felix has gone and done it. Today over the arid countryside near Roswell, New Mexico, the Austrian daredevil successfully accomplished a feat that has been in the works since 2003 – he broke the record for the world’s highest parachute jump, dropping from an unofficial altitude of 128,100 feet (39,045 meters) – about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) higher than expected. In the process, he also became the first skydiver to exceed the speed of sound by reaching an estimated speed of 833.9 mph (1342.8 km/h) while in freefall. That's Mach 1.24 – the first supersonic skydive.





That's one crazy dude.  Hey Felix... you're nuts!!  But what an awesome feat!!

BUMBLE BEE TUNA PLANT EMPLOYEE DIES AFTER ACCIDENTALLY BEING COOKED IN OVEN


SANTA FE SPRINGS - A seafood plant employee died Thursday after he was cooked in an oven in an industrial accident, authorities said Friday.

Bumble Bee Foods officials identified the man as Jose Melena, a 6-year employee of the business.
He was 62 years old, according to Whittier police.
The incident took place shortly before 7 a.m. at Bumble Bee Foods, 13100 Arctic Circle, Whittier police officials said in a written statement.

The initial investigation indicated that, "he was fatally injured when he was cooked in an oven," California Division of Occupational Safety and Health spokeswoman Erika Monterroza said. Cal-OSHA has launched an investigation into the the circumstances of what officials are calling an accident.

The cooking device that injured the man was described in coroner's documents as a "steamer machine," Dietz said.

It was unclear how the man ended up inside the industrial cooker.

"This is a horrendous tragedy," Monterroza said.






WTF?? We don't get it.  Something's fishy here... uh, sorry.  How does one 'accidentally' get cooked to death in a oven??? :-o

DALLAS MOTHER GETS 99 YEARS IN PRISON FOR GLUING TODDLER DAUGHTER'S HANDS TO WALL, BEATING HER


Dallas  - A Dallas woman has been sentenced to 99 years in prison for beating her toddler and gluing the child's hands to a wall.

Elizabeth Escalona faced from probation to life in prison. Prosecutors sought 45 years behind bars. A state district judge decided her sentence Friday.

Police say Escalona attacked 2-year-old Jocelyn Cedillo because of potty training problems. The 23-year-old pleaded guilty in July to felony injury to a child.

Police records show Escalona's other children told authorities she kicked Jocelyn in the stomach and hit her with a jug in September 2011. They said Escalona glued Jocelyn's hands to the wall with a type of strong adhesive known as Super Glue.

Jocelyn suffered bleeding in her brain, multiple bruises and was in a coma for a couple of days.



Lord help that child!  All we can hope for now is that someone would be crazy enough (no problem there), to glue her crazy ass to the prison walls and....  an eye for an eye we always say.  Crazy woman.

STUDENT GETS A JOB WORKING WITH MOM IN SEX SHOP

STUDENT APPRENTICES IN MOM'S BERLIN SEX SHOP

Leslie Pumm is most likely Germany's only sex shop apprentice. The 18-year-old, who is learning the business at his mother's store, finds that being gay gives him an advantage at work. At the same time, he has his sights set on bigger ambitions and is already active in local politics.


Accessories made out of rubber and leather such as masks, whips and tight costumes are piled up in the fetish corner of the tube shaped erotic store. This is the part of the shop where Leslie Pumm, 18, has to turn off his imagination. "Otherwise it hurts me inside," he says with a shudder.

Since March, Pumm has been working as a retail sales apprentice in an erotic shop in Berlin's Wedding district, just north of the city center. Students who don't attend university in Germany often complete apprenticeships at salons, shops and other businesses. But according to the local chamber of commerce, there is no other apprentice working in this particular field. It's quite possible that Pumm is the only sex shop apprentice in the entire country.

Previously he worked at a large electronics retail chain, but it soon became clear, as he puts it in his Berlin dialect, "that it was not for me." Instead, he began working in the sex shop that his mother has been running since the beginning of the year.

The transition took some adjustment, but he feels much more comfortable now, Pumm says. Things were hectic in the department store where he sold computers, mobile phones and mp3 players, and the noise drowned him out when he was trying to advise customers. The erotic store is much quieter, and above all, discreet. His mother told him from the beginning not to loudly discuss the impotency problems of customers who buy penis pumps, for example.




Lord! Wouldn't we all love an apprentice job like that with our mother... we think.  Go for it Leslie!!
Craziness...


WOMAN DENIED JOB - ONE SIZE TOO BIG

WOMAN CAN'T FIT INTO SKIRT, DENIED JOB


Usually job candidates are turned away because they don't have the right skill set or enough experience, but one California woman said she didn't get a job because she doesn't have the right body type.

Jennifer Rogers, of Palm Desert, Calif., claimed she didn't get a job at the Tilted Kilt Pub and Eatery in Palm Desert because a skirt that is part of the uniform there didn't fit her. The 20-year-old made it through the application process but was turned away when it was time to try on the required "costume," she told ABC News affiliate KESQ.

"Because the skirt was a size too small, they said that I could not work there," Rogers told KESQ. "I couldn't wear the uniform."

Rogers applied to be a "Kilt Girl" at the restaurant, which is scheduled to reopen in two weeks after being closed for a year and a half. The job is labeled entertainer/server on the company's career site, which said applicants must "adhere to the established appearance guidelines," and, "maintain a costume fit, as detailed in the appearance guidelines."



Some jobs are sure a tight squeeze to get into!  As they say - if the skirt doesn't fit, I guess it's time to quit!  Craziness.

MYSTERIOUS GIANT EYEBALL WASHES UP ON FLORIDA BEACH


MIAMI—It’s not that body parts never wash ashore on Florida beaches. But usually it’s not an eye the size of a softball.

State wildlife officials are trying to determine the species of a blue eyeball found by a man Wednesday at Pompano Beach, north of Fort Lauderdale.

They put the eyeball on ice so it can be analyzed at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute in St. Petersburg.

Agency spokeswoman Carli Segelson says the eyeball likely came from a marine animal, since it was found on a beach. Possible candidates include a giant squid, a whale or some type of large fish.




Cyclops... where you at?  We found your eye buddy!  Oh!  Wait a minute.  It's not yours?

RICK SCOTT GIVES OUT PHONE SEX NUMBER IN LIEU OF FLORIDA MENINGITIS HOTLINE


Someone's been a naughty boy!

Florida governor Rick Scott accidentally sent constituents seeking information on a fungal meningitis outbreak to a phone sex hotline.

WUSF reports the gaffe was first noticed by readers after the station published a number Scott reeled off during a Florida Cabinet meeting on Tuesday, the day Florida's first death from the outbreak was confirmed:

"You can call the Dept. of Health's toll-free, 24-hour hotline set up in response to this," Scott said reading off an 866 number. 
When WUSF posted that telephone number as part of its web story, we were quickly notified by a reader that the number instead connected to an adult telephone line. 
"Hello boys, thank you for calling me on my anniversary," is how the recording opens. A young female voice then directs "existing callers" to press one, and so on.





Uhm, someone has alot of explaining to do... and not just to the world ;)

The scorned spouse added on the smaller side entrance: "Stop now".
The images were shared a month ago. There has been no update on this very public love triangle.
