Wow that's some crazy capture!  It's a great thing those Russians all keep dashcams in their car! As for the driver ahead as well as the one who captured all this - they remained calm and in control of those cars like a BOSS!! Only in Russia...

MAN DIES AFTER EATING 28 RAW EGGS FOR A DARE

In this years latest story of disasters caused by extreme eating, a young Tunisian man died after eating 28 raw eggs in one sitting.

Dhaou Fatnassi, 20, performed the unfortunate feat as part of a bet that he could eat 30 raw eggs in one go, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Fatnassi downed 28 eggs before complaining of stomach pains. His friends called an ambulance, but the damage was done and he was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.

It’s seems like eating such a quantity of anything is a bad idea, but sudden death also seems like an extreme result.



Eeeew!  Raw eggs?  28 of them?  Eeew.  We feel like barfing just thinking about it.  Have you ever tried swallowing a raw egg?  They are so slimy going down and...        What a crazy idea!



POTENTIAL HEIR TO $19 MILLION FOUND DEAD AND HOMELESS

POTENTIAL HEIR TO HUGUETTE CLARK FORTUNE FOUND DEAD, HOMELESS

A potential heir to the fortunes of the late heiress Huguette Clark has been found dead under a railroad overpass in Wyoming.

The body of Timothy Henry Gray, 60, was found Thursday by children sledding under a Union Pacific Railroad overpass in Evanston, Wyo., according to NBC News. A coroner said it appeared he died of hypothermia. Gray's siblings told the station he disappeared in 1990 without a word.

Tim Gray was an adopted great-grandson of former U.S. Sen. William Andrews Clark, known as one of the copper kings of Montana. Clark was also a banker, a builder of railroads and the founder of Las Vegas, NBC reported.

Clark’s youngest daughter, Huguette Clark, heiress to the copper mining fortune, was a recluse who died in 2011 in New York City at age 104. Gray was her half great-nephew.

....Gray's estate would be entitled to about $19 million before taxes, or 6.25 percent of Clark's copper mining fortune, which has been conservatively estimated at $307 million by the administrator of Huguette Clark's estate.





This article also mentioned later that the coroner said Gray's wallet contained a cashier's cheque, from 2003, for "a significant amount."  Something just doesn't sound right.   Craziness...

VIDEO: A CRAZY DRIVE THROUGH A FOREST AT OVER 200KPH

Feeling a bit under the weather this morning? This rally driver’s incredible drive through an Austrian forest will wake you up.


In-car rally videos don’t come much better than this. Taken at the Waldviertel Rallye in Austria it features local driver Beppo Harrach and it’s a thrilling three-and-a-half minutes of awesome driving.

The bold Beppo tears through this forest stage at speeds north of 200kph, a stage where one false move will see him wrapped around a tree. The co-pilot’s sing-song German directions only add to the enjoyment of the video while the scenery, even though it is flying past at unreal speeds, is not too bad either.






This is just all around crazy folks! Crazy idea, crazy stunt, crazy men.... but we loved it!.... Crazy fools.

LEAPING CROCODILE LANDS ON TOURIST

THREE backpackers have had a very close encounter with a crocodile at a billabong in the Northern Territory.

Three mates from Europe head to Wangi Falls, a picturesque swimming hole south of Darwin, for a dip.

The waterhole is known to be the haunt of crocodiles and the mates can't believe their luck when they spot a 2m freshwater croc sunning itself on a  rock near the base of the falls...




OMG.  You can hardly see the croc as it blended so well in its surroundings.  We can't believe these guys are swimming in such waters to begin with.  Were they smoking some wacky tobacky before entering perhaps?  Good thing it wasn't a big croc eh?



Flying Crocodile Jumps at Swimmer
Three Swedish tourists had a surprise while swimming in a national park in Australia after a crocodile decided to leap from rocks and land on one of them! Luckily they were unharmed.

QUEBEC FUNERAL HOME PLACES WRONG BODY IN OPEN COFFIN

SHAWINIGAN, QUE. - A funeral home in central Quebec has apologized after placing the wrong body in an open coffin prior to a weekend funeral.

The shocking mistake can't be undone because the Oscar St-Ours funeral home mistakenly cremated Marguerite Mercier-Pelletier's body prior to the service in this town two hours east of Montreal.

The family discovered the stunning mistake when they arrived at the viewing on Friday only to find a person they didn't recognize lying in the casket.

They immediately notified the funeral home.




Lawd!  The poor family.  It's bad enough it's the wrong body but they can't even put the RIGHT body back.

US SHOOTING SPURS BULLETPROOF BACKPACK SALES

Sales of bulletproof backpacks have soared in the days after the shootings of 20 young children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut.

One company, Amendment II, sells Avengers and Little Mermaid-themed bags for boys and girls respectively, with integrated protective armour inserts.

"Sewn into the rear of the pack, you can always be confident that the armour hasn't been accidentally left at home and that you or your child are protected in case of the unthinkable," the company promises.

Other companies have also seized the moment to push sales. Prices range from $150 (£92) to almost $500 (£308).

BulletBlocker claims to have sold around 40 per day since last Friday's massacre.





Holy!  You know it's bad when these things are invented to begin with.  What is this crazy world coming to?

A SKYDIVER LAY DEAD IN A FIELD IN THE NETHERLANDS FOR MORE THAN A WEEK BEFORE HE WAS FINALLY NOTICED BY CHANCE 


Mark van den Boogaard's parachute failed to open on December 8 but his body was not discovered until nine days later by rabbit hunters, according to reports out of Holland.

Dutch police said they had no reason to believe the death was suspicious, adding that the investigation was now over after no technical problems were found with the parachute.

Police said van den Boogaard, an experienced skydiver, was not close to his relatives and also worked for himself, going some way toward explaining why he was not reported missing.

Simon Woerlee, manager of the Nationaal Paracentrum skydiving club, in the village of Teuge, described van den Boogaard as "a happy man, but a loner".

CRAZY RUSSIAN WINTER:  WHAT HAPPENS TO BOILING WATER AT -41C?


An incredible video shows a Russian man making instant fog - by throwing a pot of boiling water from his balcony.

It was shot in an unidentified Russian town where the outside temperature, according to a weather report, is colder than -40 degrees C.

The YouTube video shows the man take a pot of several litres of boiling hot water on to his balcony and tip it over the side - with the liquid entirely evaporating before it touches the ground.

VODKA SAVES THE LIFE OF TWO ELEPHANTS IN FREEZING SIBERIA

The quick thinking of the handler has saved the lives of two Indian elephants that were stranded when their trailer caught fire in Siberia.

The elephants were part of a touring circus, and were caught in the cold once their transport was destroyed. Their handlers tried to get them to keep moving to keep warm, but soon realised it wasn’t enough, according to the RIA news agency.

The elephants, Jimmy and Magda, were then served a crate of vodka mixed with water each in an effort to heat them up from the inside.  The spirit did the trick, keeping the elephants warm enough until a replacement vehicle arrived.

Local officials say the vodka saved their lives. ’After that they roared as if they were in the jungle! Apparently they were happy," he said.

The animals were traveling in the region with a Polish circus heading for their final destination in the Siberian city of Omsk. Both elephants successfully made it to the city and are rehearsing for their New Year show.




Darn!  And we just had a post on one of our other blogs on the Many Uses Of Vodka.  We must update!
Those crazy Siberians!  You gotta love 'em! ... and vodka.

FATHER PHONES POLICE OVER BAWLING BABIES

GERMAN FATHER CALLS POLICE OVER BAWLING BABIES


How desperate can a man can get when left alone with his children? Just ask one father in Bavaria, who called the police for help when he couldn't hush his three crying babies.

The 31-year-old father from Weiden became overwhelmed when the tearful tykes let lose the waterworks in concert on Sunday night.

Unluckily for the Bavarian man, the babies' mother wasn't there and he couldn't reach her by phone as his two five-month old twins and their two-year old sister let lose with a torrent of tears.

Having failed to reach his wife by phone and unable to calm his babies down, the father desperately started looking for a helping hand, or in this case the long arm of the law.



How desperate can a man get? Seriously?  One crying baby is enough for any sane dad OR mom.  We can't imagine having 3.  We felt for him...  Good for him also! Shakin' babies or death all avoided!

TAIWAN WELCOMES 7 MILLIONTH TOURIST OF THE YEAR WITH POMP AND PRIZES

Taiwan's tourism bureau is poised to welcome this year's 7 millionth foreign guest to Taiwan today, setting a new record high. The previous record stands at 6.08 million tourists in 2011.

The lucky tourist will receive 70 gifts worth 200,000 NTD including plane tickets, hotel vouchers, a laptop and a bicycle at a ceremony at the Executive Yuan on December 19th.

The Tourism Bureau predicts that 7.2 million foreigners will visit Taiwan by the end of 2012, 18% more than visited in 2011. Taiwan welcomed 4.39 million foreign visitors in 2009 and 5.56 million visitors in 2010, according to official figures.

The Taiwanese tourist industry has developed substantially in recent years, even creating tailor made 'Life of Pi' tours to promote locations on the island used in filming.







200,000 NTD?  That's around 6885.86 US Dollars guys.  That's not bad for just visiting a country and being the 7th million 'customer'. And 7 million?  That's alot of tourist to one country in one year!  Amazing.. and crazy!

NEW ZEALAND'S W2 PRESENTS ROMOTOW - THE FOLD-OUT SWISS ARMY CARAVAN

New Zealand architectural and interior design firm W2 has never designed a caravan before – and it shows. The Romotow fold-out luxury caravan is unlike anything we've come across before.


And that's a deliberate distinction – W2 Director Stuart Winterbourn told Gizmag he's never found caravans all that interesting: "To a lot of people, they're not desirable … including us. Generally, you're using it in summer, and it's stinking hot, and you don't really want to be inside a caravan. And if you don't want to be inside, you've got maybe some sort of screen you can pull out, and a rickety chair and table … it's not that nice.

"We thought why don't we come up with something that integrates a house and a deck....





Hey!  Swiss-army knife, swiss-army caravan... Sounds good to us!  Now if only they were available in North America...


THE DAILY MAIL PUBLISHES BIASED ARTICLE ABOUT CHINA'S FOOD SHORTAGE

DAILY MAIL PUBLISHES APPAULING BAD ARTICLE ABOUT NON-EXISTENT CHINESE FOOD SHORTAGE

The Daily Mail, which specialises in selling xenophobic hysteria to bored British housewives, has a history of publishing poorly sourced, borderline-racist articles about China. Even with that said however, it's shocking just how bad a recent article, "The families so poor they queue for free cabbages", actually is.

Let's start with the modicum of truth that's actually in the story:


Families queued for hours at the Shanxi Wanfucheng Mall in Taiyuan, Shanxi province, after managers bought 20 truckloads of the vegetable from local farmers.
'The cabbages were going very cheap because the farms had produced too many.
'So we bought all they had to give away, just to show our customers that we're not only after their money,' said a spokesman.





That's the story here. Last month the price of wholesale cabbage slumped dramatically, to a mere 0.12 yuan per kilo. Farmers were left with the horrible choice of either seeing their crop rot in the fields, or harvest it for next to no return. Many chose to give the crops away rather than let them go to waste. This is a heart-warming fucking story and seen this way the photos published by the Mail show generous farmers and happy customers, which is exactly how another paper chose to report it. But apply the Mail's knee-jerk xenophobia and general ignorance about the world and what do you get?

         Ravaged by hunger and desperate for food, these are the sad pictures which show...




Well, it seems somebody is pissed!  We might have to agree with Shanghaiiist on this one mates.  The Daily Mail can be good but most times it's just a fashion-slash-erotica-slash-desperados-slash-nothing else to publish so let's publish this - website that has nothing better to do than publish what has to be published to get the viewers crawling back for more. Hey! Don't we all do that?  Urm.. not us of course...  Craziness.

Montreal school admits baby-snatching eagle video is a hoax




See the original post below:


GOLDEN EAGLE SNATCHES KID TAKES FOR SHORT BUT SCARY RIDE!  WOW LUCKY AMAZING

A video from Montreal shows a giant Golden Eagle swooping down and snatching a small child before letting the toddler slip out of its grasp.

The Golden Eagle video was uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday, and within hours it had spread quickly around the internet. In separate submissions to Reddit, the video gained thousands of user votes and hundreds of comments from users. The video also found its way onto several nature forums and other sites, including BuzzFeed.

In the video, what appears to be a family is enjoying the outdoors in what one Reddit user confirmed is Mount Royal in Montreal. The cameraman has the video tracking a giant Golden Eagle as it glides through the air, but then the bird marks a sharp turn and descends downward toward a child sitting on the ground a few feet away from an adult.

From there the Golden Eagle snatches the child, who appears to be two or three years old, eliciting a curse from the cameraman who goes running to help. Later, the video shows a slow motion replay that shows that the Golden Eagle actually lifted the child off the ground for several feet before dropping it to the ground.






Wikipedia notes that Golden Eagles are known to use their speed and agility to snatch prey, and combined with powerful talons they are a feared predator. Some cultures have used them as hunting birds, and Golden Eagles have been known to take down prey as large as white wolves.

Users on Reddit speculated that the Golden Eagle dropped the child because of the kid's heavy winter coat, which may have either been difficult to grasp or felt too unlike the bird's natural prey to hold onto.

VIDEO: CATFISH CATCHES PIGEON - ON LAND

PIGEON INTERRUPTUS - A FISH THAT HUNTS PIGEONS ON LAND

In science, categories matter: phylum, family, class, species, solid, liquid, endo-, exo-, we analyze by creating groups, by making clean distinctions. Nature, on the other hand, is messier. It defies categories, at least at the edges. There is always something in the group that isn't doing what it's supposed to, that doesn't quite fit. It's those exceptions that make the world so surprising.

Fish, for example, generally eat other fish. But at the edges, and I mean literally the edges of the water, there are sea creatures that jump onto the land to eat land animals.

Killer whales are the greatest example (see below). But the latest addition is a catfish that hunts pigeons




Don't Go Near The Water, Mr. Pigeon!

We are in southwestern France, along the river Tarn, where there's a small hunk of gravel at the river's edge where pigeons like to gather. What the pigeons don't know is that right next to them, hiding in the water, is a European catfish.






700 MOUNTAINS TO BE FLATTENED FOR NEW CITY IN THE DESERT

CHINA TO FLATTEN 700 MOUNTAINS FOR NEW METROPOLIS IN THE DESERT

A long, long time ago, an old Chinese peasant named Yu Gong decided to move two inconveniently located mountains away from blocking the entrance to his home. Legend has it he struggled terribly, but ultimately succeeded. Hence the Chinese idiom "Yu Gong moves the mountains." Where there's a will, there's a way. Now Chinese developers are putting old Yu to shame.

In what is being billed as the largest "mountain-moving project" in Chinese history, one of China's biggest construction firms will spend £2.2bn to flatten 700 mountains levelling the area Lanzhou, allowing developers to build a new metropolis on the outskirts of the north-western city.

The Lanzhou New Area, 500 square miles (130,000 hectares) of land 50 miles from the city, which is the provincial capital of arid Gansu province, could increase the region's gross domestic product to £27bn by 2030, according to the state-run China Daily. It has already attracted almost £7bn of corporate investment.


Seriously?  Flatten 700 mountains?  To create another possible ghost town? All in the name of money!  Let's hope it will all be worth it!  Craziness...




Watch: Gorgeous video of a Chinese ghost town turned into a skatepark






Built for 1 million people and currently inhabited by just a few thousand.
It’s been called the Dubai of northern China, showered with wealth, packed with public infrastructure and located near to precious natural resources in a region plagued by water-supply troubles.
Ordos is a ghost town located in Inner Mongolia. Seeing the potential of this city in terms of spots we decided to organize a skate trip and be the first ones to skate such a surreal place.

SMUGGLERS USE CANNON TO FIRE 85 POUNDS OF MARIJUANA INTO ARIZONA


Drug smugglers in Mexico used a cannon to fire containers full of marijuana over the border into Arizona, the U.S. Border Patrol said Tuesday.

In what appears to be yet another innovation in the drug war arms race, authorities said they found 33 cans of marijuana weighing about 85 pounds, and worth approximately $42,500, strewn across a field on Friday.

A search turned up a carbon dioxide tank likely used to propel the containers, according to The Associated Press.







Well hey!  What can we say?  At least they are shooting weeds and not bombs!  Craziness...

FIRST THE CARDBOARD BICYCLE - NOW THE CARDBOARD HELMET?

|0 comments
CARDBOARD BIKE HELMET COULD REVOLUTIONIZE HEAD SAFETY

As highlighted by the cardboard bicycle, cardboard can be a surprisingly versatile manufacturing material in the right hands. Further proof of this comes via the Kranium: a bicycle helmet constructed from cardboard and designed by Royal College of Art student Anirudha Surabhi, which promises to be 15 percent lighter than standard helmets, while absorbing up to three times the impact energy during a collision.

Ani was inspired to create the Kranium following a nasty fall from his bicycle which caused a cracked helmet and minor concussion. Taking this experience as a cue to design a better helmet, he looked toward the animal kingdom, and the woodpecker in particular.



Why didn't they think of this before? Fascinating!  Crazy but fascinating!

BRAZILIAN WIFE FILMED DESTROYING CHEATING HUSBAND'S CAR

A Brazilian woman enraged by her cheating husband has been filmed smashing his car with a hammer in front of dozens of cheering bystanders.The footage recorded on December 6 shows the red-headed woman using a hammer to smash the bonnet and windscreen of her husband's Honda Civic in Sao Paulo.

No-one made an effort to calm the woman down but instead, took out their phones to film her.

Satisfied she had done enough damage she drops the hammer and walks towards a taxi stand while the large crowd whistles and cheers her on.

Sao Paulo police told PT Journal that the woman went into a fit of rage after finding out about her husband's affair.

Several versions of the video have already gone viral after being posted a day ago.





Ouch!  We wondered if this is covered under his insurance policy?  Probably not.  But if this keeps up - women bashing cheating men's cars and all, they might have to revamp insurance policies all over the world.
Revenge is s-weet!  Crazy women.. Craziness...







5-YR. OLD GETS RUN OVER BY BUS - BYSTANDERS DO NOTHING

|0 comments
FIVE-YEAR-OLD YAN ZHE RUN OVER BY BUS WHILE DETACHED BYSTANDERS STAND IDLY BY

In Tongxiang county, Jiaxing, Zhejiang province recently, a five-year-old boy named Yan Zhe was killed when he wandered in front of a parked bus whose driver did not see him before accelerating. In the video, you see the driver leave his vehicle, realize what he’s done, and then… nothing.

The hysterical mother rushes in and collapses when she discovers what’s happened. The bus driver turns his body from her. She pleads for help — from everyone, anyone – but no one steps forward. She rushes toward a car, but that vehicle backs away, slowly, metaphorical hands in the air as to say, “Not my problem.”

Finally, someone does transport Yan Zhe to the hospital, where he will be pronounced dead.

Chinese media, on cue, have compared this incident to another last year from Foshan, Guangdong province, the infamous, national-conscience-rattling case of Yue Yue, who lay dying on the side of a road while 18 people walked or cycled past. The news anchor in the above asks whether we’ve forgotten her legacy. “Now, can we still see those inner scars? Can we remember the pain and anguish from that time? Granted, it was an unavoidable accident, but that doesn’t make it an acceptable excuse for those who backed away. Child’s parents are responsible, driver is responsible, everyone who witnessed it is responsible.”

Last month, people whispered “Yue Yue” as well when a woman on the highway got run over multiple times by cars that wouldn’t slow down. Are we destined for a continual string of these type of stories? Will “Yue Yue” become empty words, if they’re not already?






OMG!  We just don't get it.  We really don't.  Why is everyone so 'afraid' to help?  It can't be that they just don't care - can it??  Whilst watching the video, although we couldn't understand what was being said, we noticed to the far right a guy just standing there watching and doing nothing.  We're sure he seen what happened or was about to happen and didn't even flinch!  What a crazy world we leave in.  It makes us ill sometimes. Our prayers with the mother and family.  Craziness....

BUT DID SHE STEAL THE iPHONE?  APP TAKES PHOTO OF WOMAN TRYING TO UNLOCK IT


A woman who tried to unlock a stolen iPhone unwittingly took her own photo. An app on the phone then automatically sent the photo to the owner, who called the police.

The app, identified by some media outlets as iGotYa, can only be installed on jailbroken iPhones.

iGotYa takes a picture of anyone who tries to unlock it, maps their location and then sends the information to the owner in an email.


That's exactly what happened in this particular case, Sussex Police said, with an iPhone that had been stolen from the Coalition nightclub in Brighton, East Sussex, earlier this month.

Police have released the picture of the woman who might have stolen the phone.




Lawd!  There's one born every minute.  Which reminds us.. we need to upload that app - pronto!

BURGLAR STEALS AND SNORTS HUMAN AND DOG ASHES

FLORIDA MAN STEALS, SNORTS DOG AND HUMAN ASHES 

It's a story where the picture already says everything you need to know, but for the sake of context here are a few extra details.

Jose David Diaz-Marrero was recently sentenced to eight years in prison. Diaz-Marrero would be the gentleman in the middle.

According to the Ocala Star-Banner, the 20-year-old had been accused of perpetrating a string of burglaries between December 2010 and January 2011.

But the sentence reflects more than your simple garden-variety break-and-enter.

Because the laptop, jewelry, 42-inch screen TV and DVD player stolen from Holli Tencza's home can ultimately be replaced.


The ashes belonging to her late father and two deceased Great Danes cannot.
And not just because Diaz-Marrero and his two accomplices also stole the urns in which the ashes were contained.

Rather, they cannot be returned in their entirety because the trio mistook the urns' contents for "crushed pills" and reportedly proceeded to smoke and snort them.






Lawd!  You have to be reeeal desperate to be snortin' some sh**t you know nothing about!  Crushed pills?  Really?  Maybe they were already high before wanting to get high.  Craziness.

EXTINCT LIZARD NAMED AFTER OBAMA

SCIENTISTS NAME EXTINCT LIZARD AFTER PRESIDENT OBAMA

The scientific community has come up with an unusual way of honoring President Obama's successful re-election campaign by naming an extinct lizard after the president.

"I was seriously thinking, if the election had gone the other way, I would have yanked it," Yale paleontologist Nicholas Longrich told the Boston Globe. "It might have seemed like we were mocking it, naming a lizard that goes extinct after that, seemed kind of cruel."

The newly named Obamadon gracilis was a small lizard that fed off of insects and was about a foot long before going extinct about 65 million years ago.
But Longrich and his peers say no one should read any political commentary into the choice. "We're just having fun with taxonomy," he said.

And as NBC's Cosmic Blog points out, this is actually the third organism named after President Obama, including a fish (Ethiostoma obama) and lichen (Caloplaca obamae).

2-YEAR-OLD GOES HOME AFTER SPENDING ENTIRE LIFE IN HOSPITAL (VIDEO)


Little Adalynn Willett has left the only home she's ever known, but there are nothing but happy tears to be shed about this move. The 2-year-old had spent all 850 days of her life in the Cook Children's Medical Center in Dallas, but this week she defied all odds and went to her real home in Abilene, Texas, with her parents.

According to WFAA, Adalynn was born with a condition called Omphalocele, which caused her intestines and her liver to grow on the outside of her body. In her short life, she has been through 28 surgeries and numerous potentially deadly complications. Most babies born with her condition don't survive, but Adalynn amazingly has, and now she is embarking on a whole new journey in the world, which she had only seen from a window for so long.



Now this was one crazy story we loved hearing!  2 years is a very, very long time.  Some of us can't even do 2 hours... God bless her and her family!

NANJING TEACHER BRINGS AK-47 TO CLASS

A Nanjing university lecturer has become something of an internet celebrity after photos of him brandishing an AK-47 and other assault rifles in front of his class were posted online.

The class entitled "The Structure of Automatic Weapons" aims to teach students at the Nanjing University of Science and Technology how to handle and assemble a range of firearms from different countries. Attendance is strictly limited to students majoring in weapons manufacturing.

The teacher's name has not been made public, and a profile in Nanjing's Modern Express identified him only by the alias Wu.

PHOTOS:  SHANXI "NAIL GRAVE" IN MIDDLE OF CONSTRUCTION SITE

Two weeks after a Zhejiang nail house grabbed headlines across China, photos of a “nail grave” in northwest China have gone viral on the internet.


The single gravestone has bizarrely been left on top of a ten metre high mound while workers erect a high-end block of flats around it in Taiyuan, capital of northern China's Shanxi Province.

The owner of the tomb, which has been in place since 2004, said the family wants answers from the developers about why they chose that particular site.



Lawd!  What are those guys up to now over yonder in Asia?  One lonely grave on a huge heaping pile of dirt.  Seriously?  Craziness

MONKEY BUSINESS: PRIMATE CLAD IN COAT SPOTTED AT NORTH TORONTO IKEA

TORONTO - Shoppers at an Ikea store in North Toronto weren't monkeying around when they reported a primate on the loose Sunday afternoon.

Customers spotted a monkey — clad in a pint-sized shearling coat — wandering around the store parking lot by itself around 3 p.m. The animal made its way through rows of parked cars and eventually ended up outside a set of store doors.

"It was just outside the store, just in a corner area where the monkey had no where to go, but it was pretty scared," said Staff Sgt. Ed Dzingala.

Ikea staff managed to lure the primate into a corner before calling police, who in turn contacted the city's Animal Services department, said Dzingala.

The monkey — who was reportedly wearing a diaper as well — never actually made it inside the store and was picked up by animal services officers within half an hour.

The animal's owner contacted police later in the day and was reunited with their pet, Dzingala said.
"Apparently the monkey, described as a smart monkey, let itself out of its crate," he said.
"It was in a parked car in the lot, and opened up the door and went for a walk."



What the hell?  He just wanted to go shopping... like everyone else.

MAN BIT POLICE DOG - DOG BIT BACK

|0 comments
MAN BITES DOG.  NO, SERIOUSLY.

IT WAS a case of man bites dog and dog bites back … and Dexter proved his bite is worse than his bark.

A 31-year-old man needed stitches to his arm after allegedly biting the police dog while being arrested in the Illawarra region on Saturday night.

Police were called to a Berkley residence about 11pm after reports of an apprehended violence order breach.

Police will allege the man ''grabbed Dexter around the neck and tried to bite him''.


''He has gotten his teeth into Dexter,'' Acting Inspector Jack Brown said. ''At that point the dog has retaliated, biting him. As you can imagine, Dexter did a better job of it.




Only in Australia?  We doubt it!  Craziness!

INMATE ON DEATH ROW CLAIMS TO BE TOO FAT TO EXECUTE

RONALD POST, OBESE DEATH ROW INMATE, FIGHTS EXECUTION IN OHIO

COLUMBUS, Ohio — At about 450 pounds, Ohio death row inmate Ronald Post is so fat that his executioners won't be able to find veins in his arms or legs for the lethal injection, and he might even break the death chamber gurney, his lawyers say.

If the state is forced to use a backup method that involves injecting the drugs directly into muscle, the process could require multiple doses over several hours or even days and result in a grueling and painful end, they say.

Post, who gained close to 200 pounds on death row, is trying to stave off execution Jan. 16 for the 1983 killing of a motel clerk during a robbery, arguing that because of his obesity, an attempt to put him to death would amount to cruel and unusual punishment.

State officials say Post, 53, can be humanely executed under both Ohio's usual method and the untested backup procedure. The warden at the prison where the death chamber is situated even tested the gurney by piling 540 pounds of weights on it for two hours.





Too fat to kill?  That's a first.. isn't it?  Anyways, if they start now, maybe by next week....     Sorry.  All this craziness is gettin' to us.

20-YR. OLD WOMAN ADMITS TO HAVING SEX WITH THE FAMILY DOGS SINCE AGE 13

BRITTANY SONNIER ACCUSED OF ENGAGING IN ILLICIT ACTS WITH FAMILY DOGS

An Arizona woman who allegedly confessed to her boyfriend that she has sex with dogs and fantasizes about incest has been charged with crimes against nature, police said.

Brittany Angelique Sonnier, 20, is accused of committing "vaginal and oral sex with two canines" in Lake Havasu City, according to police Sgt. Joe Harrold.

"We received a report ... alleging bestiality on the part of Brittany Sonnier. Our investigations bureau investigated the allegations and [then] forwarded a criminal complaint to the county attorney's office," Harrold told The Huffington Post.

Sonnier was arrested on November 21 and charged with bestiality. Those charges were later changed to two counts of "crime against nature."





Whoa Brittany!  Were you that hard up that you had to be doing the family dog(s) at 13?  Didn't you have enough homework back then?  My gawd!  That must of been a shocker for the boyfriend.  Poor guy.  And 'Crime Against Nature'?  Wow!  They have a law for everything!  Craziness....





BORED AT THE AIRPORT? WELCOME TO THE DATING SITE: MeetAtTheAirport.com

DATING WEBSITE MEET-AT-THE-AIRPORT.COM MATCHES AIRPORT TRAVELLERS LOOKING TO KILL TIME

For most of us, air travel can be a bit of a slog from point A to point B that is anything but glamorous. Lets face it — spending hours in a cramped seat demands sweatpants and Uggs, not skirts and heels.

But now, a new dating website may give you a reason to get spruced up for your next flight.

Meetattheairport.com connects individuals who will be waiting for flights at the same time for a drink, a meal, a chat in line…and maybe more.

The site is the brainchild of American Steve Pasternack, who created the website after being stuck in Miami airport for hours. It matches flyers up with individuals that have similar interests and travel arrangements according to their online profiles.




What the hell?  We're also bored at the bank too - waiting in line and all.  Can we start a website too - MeetAtTheBank.com perhaps?  Or MeetAtTheMovies or......       never mind.

2 INVESTIGATORS:  57 MAGGOTS REMOVED FROM NURSING HOME PATIENT'S EAR

(CBS) –Imagine paying $10,000 a month for skilled nursing home care for your loved one only to have the unthinkable happen.

It was horrific for an Arlington Heights family that is now suing the nursing home.

Ninety-two year old Catherine McCann has severe Alzheimer’s and is unable to speak or care for herself. While she was at Lutheran Home for the Aged in Arlington Heights, it was discovered that her left ear was infested with maggots.


“I was horrified, shocked,” says her husband John McCann, 88. “I thought it was terrible. I’m paying all this money for that kind of care — no way.”

Now, her family is suing the nursing home for emotional distress and negligence.




Eeeeew!  Say it isn't so!  For ten grand a month she should have monthly check-ups of eyes, ears and throat.   That is disgusting...

SNOOP-DOG/LION ADMITS TO SMOKING 81 JOINTS A DAY

HEAVY SMOKER: SNOOP SAYS HE SMOKES 81 BLUNTS A DAY 

It’s no secret that Snoop Lion (formerly Dogg) is a very active member of the green party. The rap legend is a big fan (and proponent) of marijuana, and has spent much of his career talking about his fondness for the sticky icky icky. We figured Snoop smoked a lot, but we didn’t know how much he loved pot. During a Reddit Ask Me Anything Dec. 5, Snoop told the Redditors that he smokes 81 blunts a day every day.

That adds up to 4,212 blunts a year (we can’t imagine what that costs). Now that’s going green.




I guess now with the new weed-law passed in Washington this Thursday, everyone is spilling their weed stories.  Snoop Lion is no exception but 81 Blunts?? Holy mother of...  Is this even humanly possible?  Is he human?  Anyone checked lately?  And what does he want - a trophy?  Craziness....


ABSURDLY SEXIST T-SHIRTS CAUSING UPROAR

GROTESQUELY SEXIST T-SHIRTS SELLING AT SPENCER'S GIFTS RAISE IRE

Spencer's Gifts, that fine North American mall repository of novelty items, has been shilling humorous t-shirts for decades to its main demographic of teenaged boys.

No joke appears off-limits on these $10 tees. Racist and sexist stereotypes, along with the boasting of one's sexual prowess, appear to be the bread and butter of the chain's online sales.

That's why a select crop of shirts singled out for their particularly egregious offensiveness has raised more than a few Internet eyebrows.

These t-shirts are so ludicrous in their misogyny that it's hard to believe they're real.




Spencer's Logo Hahaha, they are terrible.  Sorry.  We just can't believe they sell tees like these... and get away with it!  And who wears these things???  Oh yeh - men!  Craziness.

WORLD'S TALLEST WOMAN DIES IN CHINA


The world's tallest woman has died in eastern China at age 39.

Chinese state media say Yao Defen died on Nov. 13 at her home in the province of Anhui.

Guinness World Records in January 2010 had certified her as the world's tallest living woman, at seven-foot-seven. According to its website, Yao may still have been growing due to a portion of a tumour remaining on her pituitary gland. The website states she was too ill to be measured again.

The local Xin'an Evening News did not give the cause of death, but said in a report that Yao suffered from gigantism, with a tumour on her pituitary gland disrupting her levels of growth hormone. A government official in her county who gave only his surname, Liu, confirmed Yao's death on Wednesday.




Wow! Now that's tall! Bless her soul!  To see more pics and read more about this amazing person, check out our site MFS-StrangebutTrue-People !

OOPS! - 18TH CENTURY FRENCH CHATEAU BULLDOZED BY MISTAKE

BUNGLING BUILDERS BULLDOZE ENTIRE HISTORIC FRENCH CHATEAU BY MISTAKE... AFTER ITS MILLIONAIRE OWNER TOLD THEM TO DEMOLISH A SMALL OUTHOUSE ON ITS ESTATE

Blundering builders mistakenly bulldozed an 18th-century chateau in the heart of France's picturesque wine country - when they were only supposed to knock down an outhouse on its estate.

Chateau de Bellevue, 12km to the east of Bordeaux, once boasted 140,000-square-feet of grand reception rooms, ornate fireplaces, winding marble staircases and imposing granite balconies.

Then its new owner, a Russian millionaire businessman, employed a team of Polish builders to renovate the manor to its former baroque glory, including the removal of one small building.

But the workers apparently misunderstood the instructions and pulled down the castle instead, leaving the outhouse completely untouched.




Hey!  What can we say?  We all make mistakes... ಠ_ಠ       Craziness...

GERMAN NYMPHOMANIAC, 47, WHO IMPRISONED MEN FOR SEX IS FOUND DEAD IN BED BY LATEST LOVER


A German nymphomaniac arrested earlier this year after imprisoning men for punishing sex ordeals has been found dead at her home in Munich.

Antje Crapnik, 47, hit the headlines when she reduced men to gibbering wrecks after locking them in her home.

The woman's first victim complained that she forced him to sexually perform eight times before he finally escaped via her balcony wearing his underwear.

Another victim, an African man, aged 36, was found weeping in the street outside her home after an ordeal lasting 36 hours.



Say it isn't so.  We don't know if we should be sad or elated.  And ain't life a bitch - man weeping after having too much sex?  We don't get it.  Crazy world... craziness...

APOCALYPSE READY!  SIBERIAN COMPANY BEGINS SELLING END-OF-THE-WORLD SURVIVAL KITS

It might not keep you alive for long, but a Siberian firm is offering survival kits to anyone who fears the end of the world is nigh. And for everyone else, it makes for a fun stocking-filler come Christmas – provided the world hasn’t ended by then!

The apocalypse kit boasts medication, including heart medicine, soap, some candles and matches, a can of fish, a pack of buckwheat, a bottle of vodka, a notepad and pencil – and a rope (possibly intended for the less optimistic!).

It also includes a blank ID card, to be filled in by hand should your existing IDs and cards be “demagnetized” during the apocalypse.




We're sure Siberia ain't the only ones selling these doomsday kits.  But anyways, what the hell?  A can of fish, a pack of buckwheat...?  We don't know about you folks, but we're hoping we won't survive just so we don't have to use this kit.  Craziness...

CONCEPT GADGET BLOWS A STEADY STEAM OF OXYGEN TO KEEP USERS DRY.


Designers Je Sung Park and Woo Jung Kwon, have developed a unique umbrella that only consists of the handle and nothing else.

The ‘Air Umbrella’ is a simple electronic device that takes in air from the bottom of the controller, and shoots it out at the top to create a ‘curtain’ of air that can repel raindrops.










Great idea but uhm, why would you want it invisible?  We guess it would be cool looking like you're from another planet and all.... yah, why not.  And we won't have to worry about trying to get into a vehicle with an open umbrella.  We'll take 10 of these please.



Scorned Husband in Jealous Spray

 photo paintrevenge_zpsbb1bbaa4.jpg

A FURIOUS husband has taken public revenge on his wife's admirer in an unlikely place -- his rival's garage door.
A Reddit user with the screen name igotskraped posted a photo of a garage attached to a house in Illinois, tagged with a very clear message in red spray paint: "Don't e-mail my wife!!!!"
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.
