    Weiner Jailed For Stealing a Vagina

    FARGO – A Fargo man was arrested Tuesday for shoplifting an artificial vagina from downtown Fargo’s adult bookstore after he told police he became embarrassed by his interest in the object when a woman came into the store.

    The man, 26-year-old Christopher Wiener of Fargo, was charged Tuesday in Cass County District Court with possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of methamphetamine, both Class C felonies.

    According to a police report filed in the case, Fargo Police Officer Brent Malone was clearing a disturbance call Tuesday about 12:25 a.m. at the Romantix bookstore at 417 NP Ave. downtown when an employee of the store told him a man leaving the store had stolen an artificial vagina.

    When Malone stopped the man in the 100 block of Fourth Street North, he asked the man where the box containing the merchandise had come from.

    The man, who identified himself as Christopher Wiener, told the police he had bought the item from Romantix.

    Even without the error, banning all internet cafes was idiotic. Governor Skeletor (Rick Scott) is a criminal himself, you'd think he'd be happy to allow illicit gambling. :)

    It was exactly midnight when Caroline Burns eerily opened her eyes and looked at the operating lights above her, shocking doctors who believed she was dead and were about to remove her organs and donate them to patients on the transplant waiting list. :eek:

    The Syracuse Post-Standard unearthed a report from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that chronicled the series of errors that led to the near-organ removal on a living patient at St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center in Syracuse, N.Y., in 2009.

    "The patient did not suffer a cardiopulmonary arrest (as documented) and did not have irreversible brain damage," the HHS report concluded. "The patient did not meet criteria for withdrawal of care."

    Post office shut down by package leaking K-Y gel

    A Guntersville, Alabama post office was evacuated this week for a "chemical spill" after an unknown substance was discovered on several packages.

    The Hazmat team found 12-15 packages covered in the substance. Three employees were treated after coming into contact with the unknown chemical, which was originally believed to contain methanol.

    Investigators later discovered the source of the ooze was a bottle of K-Y Intense Arousal gel, which spokesman Tony Robinson said contains ingredients used "to intensify sensation."

    Postal officials didn't say exactly where the package of personal lubricant was headed, but said it was sent to someone "in the entertainment industry."

    Robinson said that they will follow their usual policy and contact the sender with friendly advice on how to better secure their packages to prevent future incidents.

    This guy is suing Apple for not having a built in porn filter installed on their devices. He claims he accidentally typed in fuckbook.com instead of facebook.com and it ruined his marriage. :woops:

    [​IMG]

    "A married Nashville lawyer and amateur model is suing Apple claiming the tech giant should have blocked him from accessing porn when he, apparently by accident, typed 'F***book.com instead of Facebook into Google.

    Chris Sevier, 36, filed a 50-page complaint in federal court last month claiming the supposedly innocent spelling mistake resulted in him viewing a plethora of pornographic images that 'appealed to his biological sensibilities as a male and lead to an unwanted addiction,' which then 'poisoned his life' and ruined his marriage.
    Sevier, an army veteran who on a Model Mayhem profile lists his age as 26, states in the suit that Apple should sell all products with an installed porn-filter. He is seeking damages from the company.

    'The Plaintiff is a victim of Apple's product that was sold to him without any warning of the damage the pornography causes,' the suit reads.

    'In using safari, the Plaintiff accidentally misspelled "facebook.com" which lead him to "f***book.com" and a host of web sites that caused him to see pornographic images that appealed to his biological sensibilities as a male and lead to an unwanted addiction with adverse consequences.'

    He added: 'But for the Plaintiff's use of the Apple product, the quality of the Plaintiff's life would have been much better and injury would have been avoided.'

    Servier goes on in the complaint to allege 'unfair competition' between the porn stars and his wife, brought about by his use of the Apple product, and thus 'interference of the marital contract.' "

    He said she obviously didn't like it, she said she did like it but someone else might not... WTF?

    Also, he could've worded it better. Like "your spine curves out, giving you that ghetto booty and the back pain". Still possibly offensive, but at least he's not omitting the ACTUAL cause of it. The ghetto booty isn't a cause, it's another symptom of the problem.

    Sometimes I think my booty causes my hip pain. Now that at least one doc has told someone hers was a problem, I believe it even more.

    Looks like aerosol cans. Reminds me of accidentally putting empty ones from the trash into burn barrels. Even empty they make a nice big boom. These are obviously full of something. Very cool video.

    Pretty fucked up considering Russia makes lots of money from exports to other countries. Such as the US, Australia, and England. I guess Russian Vodka is on longer on my to drink list. I support the LGBTQ community and I cannot believe the extremes some countries go to because they believe all homosexuals are pedophiles and child molesters. NOT TRUE!

    For the second time this month, a drone (this one presumed to be a QF 4) has come spiraling out of the sky. The crash and subsequent explosion happened next to US 98 near Tyndall Air Force Base in—oh what a surprise—Florida.

    Blocking off all traffic on the highway, the crash landing sent up a major cloud of black smoke, leading to a barrage of 911 calls claiming to have seen a plane spark and catch fire. Tyndall has explicitly confirmed it to be a QF-4 drone, which are modified F-4 Phantoms (pictured below) meant to be used as a target for test weapons. So essentially, this is what we're dealing with:

    [​IMG]

    Whereas as the earlier drone explosion was a "routine operation," that's decidedly not the case here. According to Tyndall, the crash happened during take off and, fortunately, no personnel have been injured. Below is the full statement from Tyndall Air Force Base:

    Base and local police and safety officials have closed Highway 98 and are anticipating that it will remain closed for up to 24 hours. This closure is being done strictly as a precautionary measure due to fires resulting from the crash and a small self-destruct charge carried on board the drone. The status of this device is unknown however, it is powered by a short-life battery which will be fully depleted in 24 hours. The charge is used to destroy the drone if it leaves its pre-approved flight plan.

    Tyndall certainly has experience when it comes to rogue aircrafts falling out from the sky. Their most recent drone crash happened just last week over the gulf of Mexico, and they're the same base that saw an F-22 Raptor hit the ground last year near the very same highway. Unlike the Raptor crash though, this most recent one was thankfully unmanned.

    Flesh-Eating Worms Invade Woman's Ear

    Warning: Image may freak some out at the bottom of story...

    Vid found here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/1 ... ostpopular

    By: By Marc Lallanilla, Assistant Editor
    Published: 07/17/2013 08:38 AM EDT on LiveScience

    The scratching sound that Rochelle Harris kept hearing was all in her head -- literally.

    After the British tourist returned from a vacation in Peru earlier this year, she started experiencing headaches, shooting pains down the side of her face and an unexplained discharge from one ear.

    Those symptoms, plus the bizarre scratching sounds she continued hearing, prompted Harris to visit a doctor soon after her return to England.

    Though doctors at first dismissed the symptoms as nothing more than an ear infection, specialists soon made a startling discovery: Harris' ear was filled with flesh-eating worms, according to the Daily Mail.

    The worms that Harris, 27, was hosting were the larvae of the New World screwworm fly (Cochliomyia hominivorax). The fly is a notorious livestock pest that also seeks out pets, zoo animals and occasionally humans as hosts.

    A pregnant female screwworm fly seeks an open wound on the skin of a warm-blooded animal to lay her eggs. Within 24 hours, the eggs hatch into tiny larvae that feed on living tissue and bodily fluids, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.

    The screwworm fly was, after many years of eradication efforts, eliminated from the United States in 1959 by a program that introduced sterile males into the population. The fly, however, continues to plague livestock in parts of Central and South America.

    A close relative, the secondary screwworm fly (Cochliomyia macellaria), feeds on dead or diseased flesh. The larvae of this fly have been used successfully in "maggot therapy" to clean infected wounds and promote healing after surgery.

    Harris was apparently infected after a swarm of flies pestered her while hiking in Peru; one flew into her ear, but after she shooed the insect away, she thought nothing more of it.

    Surgeons succeeded in removing what they called a "writhing mass of maggots" from Harris' ear, the Daily Mail reports. Though a tiny hole had been chewed into her ear canal, Harris suffered no serious damage from her ordeal.

    In fact, there may be one positive development from her infection: "I'm no longer as squeamish as I was about bugs," Harris told the Daily Mail. "How can you be when they've been inside your head?"
