Woman Attacks Passenger Jet Crew With Prosthetic Leg

"The 48-year-old woman allegedly demanded ‘cigarettes and a parachute’ so she could jump from the plane.

Collect picture of police boarding the flight. See CENTRE PRESS story: Scots holidaymakers were left hopping mad when their holiday flight was diverted to London after a sozzled passenger attacked cabin crew ñ with her prosthetic leg. The woman, in her 60s, demanded "cigarettes and a parachute" and kicked off when crew asked her to quieten down. Startled eye-witness John Smith, 48, from Falkirk, said she slapped a young girl in a neighbouring seat before unfastening her leg and swinging it at shocked stewardesses. The crew managed to restrain her and put her in handcuffs while the pilot of Thomson flight 297 from Enfindha, Tunisia, to Edinburgh, made an emergency landing at Gatwick. She was then escorted from the plane by cops - as relieved passengers broke into a rousing rendition of the Hokey Cokey.

Protip! Do not Transport Giraffes Under Low Overpasses


Later on in the article they say that the giraffes were blindfolded.  :(  See more photos and the rest of the article HERE

"According to witnesses one of the giraffes had knocked its head when the truck drove under a bridge.

Rick Allen MD of Tshwana SPCA told News24 that the SPCA was investigating the incident, with the intention of laying charges against those responsible.

Allen said: "The SABS has published a code for wildlife transport, and it would appear that the open transport with the giraffes' head sticking out is not acceptable."

The SPCA has ascertained that Nature Conservation has issued permits for the transport of the animals.

Sapa reported that the other giraffe was taken to a wildlife veterinary clinic."

Black Cats Are Being Abandoned Because They Don't Look Good In Selfies

(A black cat's version of giving the finger)

Black cats are lucky - but not if their owners like taking selfies, say the RSPCA.

They say the popular trend of people taking pictures of themselves with their pets is leading to a rise in unwanted black moggies and they're urging pet lovers not to judge their cats by their colour.

Officials are worried pet owners are dumping the animals simply because they don't photograph well because of their darker features.

That's why they believe a whopping 70 per cent of more than one thousand cats currently in RSPCA care at their 16 national animal centres are black.

Heroin Addicted Elephants Sent To Drug Treatment

"Four elephants who were addicted to HEROIN are now "clean" thanks to a drug-treatment programme, conservationists say.

The group have had to go cold turkey at an elephant breeding centre in south west China but are now ready to rejoin elephant society.

Campaigners say cruel drug dealers use turned the elephants into junkies by feeding them bananas laced with heroin.

The tactic makes the wild animals much easier to control as they are desperate for the next fix.

Chinese Triads then use the elephants to smuggle drugs in huge quantities across the China-Myanmar border.

Walmart Madness #145! Woman Abandons Children In Hot Car To Give Boyfriend Oral Sex

All Control Is Lost On The Lizard Sex Satellite :(

"At this very moment, a Russian satellite full of geckos -- (possibly) having sex -- is floating around in space -- and mission control has lost the ability to control it.

The Foton-M4 research satellite launched on July 19 with five geckos on board. The plan: To observe their mating activities in the zero-gravity conditions of Earth orbit. Several other earthly creatures, including plants and insects, were also placed on board for experiments.

But shortly after the satellite made its first few orbits, it stopped responding to commands from mission control. The equipment on board, however, is still sending scientific data back to earth, a spokesman for Russia's Institute of Biomedical Problems said."

George Harrison's Memorial Tree Killed By Beetles

(Ladies and gentlemen,  it was the beetles)

" A tree planted to honor of the memory of the Beatles songwriter George Harrison has been killed by actual beetles. As the Los Angeles Times reports, the living local monument fell victim to an infestation of insects that couldn't be bested. According to Councilman Tom LaBonge, the 10-foot-tall pine planted in 2004 bit the dust only recently, and a new one will be planted in its stead shortly.

Harrison's last years were spent living in L.A. — he died there at 58 in late 2001, and was cremated at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. The so-called George Harrison Tree was accompanied by a plaque reading: "In memory of a great humanitarian who touched the world as an artist, a musician and a gardener." It includes a quote from the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi: "For the forest to be green, each tree must be green"

Walmart Madness #144! Man Following Woman Around Taking Upskirt Photos Claims It Was A Misunderstanding

"Sanford police responded to the Wal-Mart on Rinehart Road around 11 a.m. Thursday for a report of a suspicious man. A Wal-Mart employee said he noticed the man, identified as John Henry Williams of Casselberry, following a woman and her young daughter.

"Williams looked around nervously, and then, with the use of his small black flip top Samsung phone, lunged low to the floor and placed the phone between the still unaware female's legs (the victim was wearing an above the knee blue skirt)," the arrest affidavit stated.

He allegedly followed the woman to another aisle and did it again, police said. When an officer confronted Williams, he said it was a misunderstanding and had done nothing wrong. The victim said she noticed Williams following her but did not know what he was doing."


Is The Giant Rubber Ducky Truly Dead And Gone This Time?

I've been following the unlucky odyssey of the Giant Rubber Ducky for about two years now.  It was the victim of an earthquake,  a butt explosion,  and various other forms of demise.  It sounds like it may be gone for good now though:

"Via the BBC:
The 18 metre (50 foot) inflatable duck suddenly collapsed on Tuesday, only 11 days after it had been put on display in the port at Keelung.
Organisers are unsure as to the cause of its demise, but one theory is that it was attacked by eagles.
After a week of heavy rainfall in southwest China, the downtrodden duck (a replacement after the unfortunate exploding incident) took another hit as it dislodged from its 10-ton metal platform and washed away, nowhere to be found. 

Yan Jianxin, a coordinator of the duck exhibit on the Nanming River told the Wall Street Journal, "The duck flopped over and was flushed away really quickly by the torrential flood. It disappeared right in front of me in several seconds."

The Wall Street Journal reports that the wild duck hunt has begun as local radio stations urge citizens, "If you live along the river and see an 18-meter tall big yellow duck, please call 5961027." Description: giant, yellow, is a duck."

The Caturday Report! Cat Poop Can Treat Cancer?

(eradicating cancer,  one poop at a time)

A kitty poop parasite has led to a treatment that wipes out cancer in lab tests, including aggressive melanoma and ovarian cancer, preliminary studies have found.

By itself, the single-celled parasite, Toxoplasma gondii, is bad news because it can cause illness in infected people and cats. It thrives in the intestines of cats and then comes out the other end.

But scientists at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center have figured out a way to engineer a new version of the parasite that they say has remarkable cancer-fighting powers.

“We know biologically this parasite has figured out how to stimulate the exact immune responses you want to fight cancer,” explained David J. Bzik, a professor of Microbiology and Immunology at Dartmouth.

“The biology of this organism is inherently different from other microbe-based (treatments) that typically just tickle immune cells from the outside,” said senior research associate Barbara Fox. “By gaining preferential access to the inside of powerful innate immune cell types, our mutated strain of T. gondii reprograms the natural power of the immune system to clear tumor cells and cancer.”

The mutated parasite is called “cps.” Lab tests show that it’s non-replicating and safe to use. Even if the recipient has a weakened immune system, as often happens with chemotherapy, cps still retains its cancer-fighting powers in the body.

Protip! Don't Kill A Spider With A Blowtorch

A man who used a can of spray paint and a lighter as a makeshift blowtorch to kill a spider in his laundry room started a blaze that caused $60,000 worth of damage, Seattle fire officials said Wednesday.

The man and his mother got out of the house, and no injuries were reported in the fire that broke out in the West Seattle home Tuesday night, said Kyle Moore, a spokesman for the Seattle Fire Department.

Moore said the man used the spray paint and lighter as "a self-made blowtorch to kill a spider in the laundry room" of a rental house.

"I don't want to encourage people to do this, but that's what he did," Moore said Wednesday. "The spider tried to get into the wall. He sprayed flames on the wall, lit the wall on fire, and that extended up to the ceiling."


Surgeon Accidentally Removes Healthy Testicle AND The Wrong Kidney

Antonio Vega Vega, Urologist, was suspended from operating at Rockhampton Hospital in Queensland after officials were alerted to four separate cases of surgical malpractice since late 2011.

Queensland Health Minister Lawrence Springborg said that the Rockhampton Hospital acting director of medical services and director or surgery were also suspended.

When the Health Service Board became concerned by some comments made by a coroner about local health services and they commissioned a review by Vanguard Health.

The review states that Vega messed up on more than 3 occasions - including him removing a healthy testicle, nicking an artery, and removing the wrong kidney in a third.

Smelling Farts Will Extend Your LIfe Says... SCIENCE! Be a good friend and fart on your people!

(May she live forever)

"Scientists in the UK claim that hydrogen sulfide, the stinky compound that smells like rotten eggs which contributes to the flatulence stench, could have amazing health benefits.

Hydrogen sulfide can be toxic, but tiny amounts have been shown to help protect the mitochondria, which are known as the “powerhouses” of cells.

Study author Dr. Matt Whiteman of the University of Exeter explained that diseased cells draw in enzymes to create small quantities of the compound, which helps keep the mitochondria going and the cell alive.

“If this doesn't happen, the cells die and lose the ability to regulate survival and control inflammation,” he said in a release."

"Dr. Mark Wood, another one of the Exeter researchers, went so far as to call the compound a “healthcare hero with significant implications for future therapies for a variety of diseases” in a university press release.

This research is interesting but preliminary. While no conclusions can be made at this time, may this news let you wince just a little bit less the next time you’re assaulted by a rotten-egg smell."

The Caturday Report! Former Wrestler Thwarts Cat Burglars

" The two attempted "cat burglars" grabbed two cats and tried to make their escape through the woods behind the SAVE animal shelter in Princeton, N.J., towards a getaway car driven by another teen, according to ABC station WPVI-TV in Philadelphia. They were caught after a former wrestler and long-time volunteer for the shelter ran after the pair and caught one. 

"Fortunately this wonderful volunteer of ours pinned one of these guys down and said, 'Give me back that kitten, I know you're trying to steal it,'" SAVE Executive Director Piper Burrows told WPVI-TV. "The volunteer made this young man call his friend who was running through the woods at this point with the other kitten and managed to get both of them here." 

According to WPVI-TV, John Moore and Hamza Cheema, both 19, have been charged with burglary and theft. Corey Thompson, 19, turned himself in and was charged with conspiracy to commit theft and hindering apprehension, WPVI-TV reported. 

One of the cats was adopted after the alleged kidnap attempt, while the other, a golden cat named Casino, still needs a home."

I'm sure the golden cat will be adopted soon. :)  SOURCE

Walmart Madness #143! Walmart Sells Nazi Death Camp Poster

"Wal-Mart has apologized after they posted an advertisement for a poster featuring a sign that hung over a Nazi concentration camp. The poster read “Arbeit Macht Frie,” which means “work will set you free,” and was featured hanging at the entrance of the famous Dachau death camp during World War 2. Wal-Mart’s website stated that it would “make a great addition to your home or office.”

“We were horrified to see that this item was on our site. We sincerely apologize, and worked quickly to remove it,” Walmart said. “The item was sold through a third-party seller on our marketplace. We have shared our disappointment with them and have learned they are removing the publisher of this item entirely from their inventory.”

(Time to lay off the bacon dude)

46-year old Randolf Turner, manager of a Wendy’s restaurant in Michigan, is accused of stealing more than 32 tons of bacon from his employer over the last four years. The man would have elaborated a complex plot to divert for his personal use, from 20 to 250 kilograms of meat per week, from shipments destined to his branch of the restaurant chain.

Walmart Madness #142! Cop Hating Cow Tapdances On Squad Car, Charges And Throws Officer Into Air

"Police spokeswoman Shannon Haigh says the cow apparently escaped from a farm outside the city limits. It was first reported in a Wal-Mart parking lot last Friday.

Haigh says the cow slipped past city police and Skagit County sheriff's deputies who tried to keep it out of the street and away from a nearby wedding.

Elephant Weeps After Being Rescued After 50 Years Of Captivity And Abuse In Spiked Shackles

Raju was most likely taken from his mother at a young age, and over the next five decades was subjected to cruel care while shacked in ropes and chains with spikes that dug into his flesh.

When Raju's rescuers finally gained approval from the Indian courts to confiscate him from his handler last week, they went in at night to avoid too many people, and to protect the elephant from the hot sun.

When rescuers came, Raju's handler reportedly tried to agitate and provoke the elephant into becoming violent in order to scare them away. However, the group stood their ground, saying the situation was "desperate" and Raju needed to be freed. One doctor said it was as if Raju sensed that change was coming, and the elephant began to cry:

Woman Loses Her Hands And Feet Because Of Discount Butt Injections

(It ended up costing her an arm and a leg (couldn't resist))

"Apryl Brown says an acquaintance was offering silicone butt injections at her house, at a cheaper price than a doctor’s office. However, the real cost would come later.

“I was in pain, my butt was hard, and I was itching,” Brown told a CNN reporter.

It turned out to be a life-threatening staph infection. When doctors removed the silicone, they found it was bathroom caulk, the same stuff you can buy at Home Depot.

Brown needed 27 surgeries, and she lost her hands and feet. At one point, she thought she was going to die.

She is not the only woman seeking discount beauty who ended up paying a high price.

Dr. Richard Glogau, at the University of California-San Francisco, says one of his patients thought she was buying an injectable filler to smooth wrinkles. She bought it from a website, and injected it with the help of a nurse.

Within a week to ten days, swollen red nodules appeared on the woman’s face. Dr. Glogau removed the substance, and found it was glass, or fiberglass.

The website where she bought the injection,, claims to sell dermal fillers for professionals directly to customers. A similar treatment at a doctor’s office costs nearly $800. The website sells it for just $100.

The FDA says only licensed medical professionals can legally make these purchases.

Dr. Glogau says he doesn’t blame the patients, in a time when the web claims to offer fast and easy access to things customers might ordinarily not be able to afford.

“People assume that it’s just as easy as getting your hair colored,” said Dr. Glogau. “But at the end of the day, it’s a medical procedure.”

Apryl Brown has learned to walk and write using prosthetics. She says her goal is to educate others so they don’t make the same mistake as she did."

Man Catches Baby Girl Falling From Eighth-Story Window (Yep - China Again)

A teacher in northwestern China is being crowned a hero after catching a baby girl falling from the window of an eight-story apartment building Tuesday night.

The incident happened in Xi'an, the capital of Shaanxi province, around 7 p.m. when a two-and-a-half-year-old girl named Chenchen crawled onto a window sill eight story up.

Several residents noticed the child, including a teacher named Yuan Jian-Pian who, thinking quick, bolted over in the nick of time and caught the infant in his outstretched arms.

The impact of her landing was enough to cause him to tumble with the child still in his arms.

Local residents rushed Chenchen to a nearby hospital. She suffered a fractured rib and and reportedly has air bubbles in her lungs, but her injuries were luckily deemed non-life threatening.

Man Claims His Dog Drove Him To The Store To Buy Corn

"A 60-year-old man in Oconee, Georgia, was questioned by the cops after they discovered that he locked his dog inside his car on a 99-degree day while running into a store. His excuse? The dog had driven him to the store.

There are a few other pertinent details, like the fact that the dog drove him there to buy some corn, and that the man—Mark Terrell—was allegedly incredibly drunk. The cops found his excuse to be lacking.

Not only was his explanation baffling, it does nothing to answer the initial question, like why his so-called driving dog was roasting alive in the inside of a car that was 123 degrees and reeking of gas fumes from a can left in the back seat.

Terrell got hit with an animal cruelty charge, and his dog was taken by animal control. If you’re looking to adopt a dog that can drive, you know where to look."

Death Metal Band Set To Play In Sealed Airtight Box Until They Run Out Of Oxygen

The performances take place later this week and in early August outside the Gherkin in London.
The sets by the band, who describe themselves as playing "an intense and brutal style" of death metal, will be inaudible to the audience.

"The box is soundproofed, determining and restricting the performance's duration to the length of time in which the oxygen is expended," according to a description about the special box. "Outside the cube, viewers observe its strange vibrations, only viewing the band's entrance and exit to the performance space."

Onofre has brought the soundproof steel box to other locations in Europe in the past.
"Well since this is going pretty viral already, we shall see you this Wednesday at 8:45am then Thursday and Friday at 6pm," the band wrote on Facebook. "PS- According to the medical professionals who read the Independent, we're all going to die... Challenge Accepted."
