Now the 28-year-old otaku (a Japanese term that roughly translates to somewhere between 'obsessive' and 'nerd')

Lover Loses $200,000 To Fake Online Girlfriend

http://news.cnet.com/8301-17852_3-20036 ... =cnetRiver

Sometimes online love is even more blind than the real thing.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, a 48-year-old man from Naperville, Ill., had been in an online relationship with a woman for two-and-a-half years.

You might wonder why they had not consummated their relationship, by, say, meeting. But some feel the virtual world is, for them, enough.

Regardless, last Wednesday the man reportedly called police because he believed his online love was in serious trouble--he was convinced she'd been kidnapped in London.

Lmao @ the picture in the article.

Tourist arrested for giving Heil Hitler! salute in holiday photo outside Reichstag

Hundreds of tourists every year make the mistake of thinking that Monty Pythonesque jokes about Hitler and his henchmen – including giving his famous raised-arm salute – are acceptable when visiting Germany. But any gestures of the old Nazi regime, or the displaying of any of its symbols, is a s serious crime in modern-day Germany.


story x

An 8-year-old boy arrested five times

surrounded by three Orange County Sheriff's deputies, he was handcuffed and escorted from the school on Tuesday

while i think we all go, 'a CHILD Arrested!?? w.t.f.,... if you have a child who is Throwing DESKs, what are you going to do?? What Are You Going To Do.....

Damn Germans, no sense of humour... On a serious note though, since all mention of the Nazi era is illegal, how do they teach history? And, more to the point, how do they ensure that history doesn't repeat itself?

Cattle prod? Taser? I'd hate to be a teacher these days. At least when I was at school, you had respect for the position even if you hated the person.

Pot-Smoking Bear Handler Awarded Workers' Compensation

Brock Hopkins got stoned,
went to feed the grizzlies
and ended up getting his ass chewed (literally)
he went to claim workers' compensation, his employer drug-tested him, found the pot in his system, and said "No way, bro"

Montana's Workers' Compensation Court disagreed, saying that the bear would have bitten him whether he was stoned or not, calling grizzlies "equal opportunity maulers."

Arkansas governor spanks arse cleavage

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/04/01/arkansas_bill/

The governor of Arkansas has struck a blow for fashion and common decency by outlawing the practice among students of turning up to school with their trousers at half-mast.

On Wednesday, Mike Beebe signed the historic bill which prohibits clothing which exposes "underwear, buttocks or the breast of a female".



Don't the schools have the authority to enforce this? Did they really need a bill from the governor?
In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

so maybe they should make all school students wear school uniforms and enforce a strict dress code on the wearing of those uniforms... :popcorn:

Zsa Zsa Gabor To Become New Mother At 94, Husband Says

http://www.cnn.com/2011/SHOWBIZ/celebri ... tml?hpt=T2

Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband wants his 94-year-old wife to become a mother again using an egg donor, artificial insemination and a surrogate mother, Prince Frederic von Anhalt told CNN Thursday.

"I've gone through the initial steps of donor matching and blood work and next week the donation process will begin," von Anhalt said.

Gabor's only child, Francesca Hilton, described herself as shocked when told of the plan Thursday.

"That's just weird," Hilton said.

Zsa Zsa sure has had her share of medical issues, especially in the past year.

wow. and he looks like such a fine, upstanding young man.

the "masterminds need not apply" thing at the bottom is great.

Motocross racer James "Bubba" Stewart Jr. is known for his speed on the track -- but police say he got in trouble when he tried to stop another vehicle for speeding. Investigators say the 25-year-old motocross star was impersonating a cop when he used flashing lights to pull over another car on March 28. That vehicle happened to be filled with off-duty police officers.


and I really enjoyed this comment:

Thompson, who was "half naked, wearing female panties and a bra .."

And singing ...
"I wish I'd been a girlie, just like my dear Papa ..."


Actually, sounds like he was acting out at least 2 of the stories from 'Every Thing You Always Wanted to Know About Sex (But Were Afraid to Ask)'.

Back when China was still old-fashioned Maoist, they often didn't raise kids themselves either (kids were sent off to some sort of mass education camps for very long periods of time, IIRC).

Now they're capitalists but in some ways they still think like Maoists...this story is a perfect illustration of that. Thanks for posting it.

The man packing a dozen peckers in his pants: Traveller arrested smuggling live hummingbirds in his trousers

with images! :P

Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... z1fJ0xuRI0

another article says

Luckily, all birds survived – perhaps due to the fact that it was not the first time the man tried to smuggle hummingbirds. Two years prior to this event, the man was caught with 53 hummingbirds stuffed into his pants in the same airport.

Islamic cleric bans women from touching bananas, cucumbers for sexual resemblance

n Islamic cleric residing in Europe said that women should not be close to bananas or cucumbers, in order to avoid any “sexual thoughts.”

if women wish to eat these food items, a third party, preferably a male related to them such as their a father or husband, should cut the items into small pieces and serve


man... if this dude is right, you gotta feel bad for the poor men
they are choppin up their penor each time :thumbup:


He also added carrots and zucchini to the list of forbidden foods for women.
