When High, Resist The Urge To Call 911 And Tell The Cops About The People And Possums Emerging From Your Microwave


A couple is facing criminal charges after repeatedly calling 911 yesterday to report that possums and people were “jumping out of their refrigerator and microwave,”according to a police report.

scflakka911Brandon Terry, 32, and Casey Fowler, 28, were collared Sunday morning for unlawful use of the police emergency system. The duo was busted at their rented South Carolina home (where they had just moved to from North Carolina).

In addition to their claims about appliances, the pair told police that they had “pictures of worms coming out of the floor of their vehicle,” as well as images of “midgets and other people camouflaged.” Upon review of the photos, a cop noted that they actually showed “a basketball goal and a tree.”

While both Terry and Fowler denied being under the influence of any narcotics, cops concluded that the couple’s five 911 calls were likely triggered by the synthetic drug “flakka,” which often has hallucinatory effects on a user.

In addition to the misuse of 911 charge, Terry has six outstanding felony narcotics warrants in North Carolina.

Woman Takes Revenge on Cheating Husband by Selling Their House While He Is Away on Business


42-year-old Laura Arnolds came up with the perfect plan to get back at her husband for cheating on her – she sold the house while he was away on a business trip! When Craig Arnolds returned, he was utterly bewildered to find his locks changed and six students in his living room.

Laura-Arnolds-600x399It all started when Laura found a message on her husband’s phone that he’d accidentally left behind when he left for a business trip to the US. The rather ‘steamy’ message from an American woman about what Craig could expect once he reached New York clearly implied he was being unfaithful.

Laura was obviously upset, but instead of blowing up at him she decided to get even. Lucky for her, her parents had taken over the mortgage of their Warwickshire property, so she was able to sell the house within a fortnight through a website that specializes in selling houses fast, to a group of students at the University of Warwick. She then packed her bags and left.


The news quickly went viral, and Laura was contacted by the media for a statement. “Things aren’t great between us at the moment,” she told Birmingham Mail. “I could do it because my parents came up with the deposit for our home and when we struggled with the mortgage, they came in.”

Craig, who now lives in London, also spoke to the media about his bafflement upon return. “All the lights were on and the TV was blaring,” he recalled. “I remember thinking it was really out of character for Laura to be up past 11pm. I had no idea what on earth was going on. At this point I seriously freaked out, jet lagged and frantic – I started banging on the door and shouting Laura’s name – but was greeted instead by what looked like a 21-year-old hippie.”

He walked in and was completely disoriented by what he saw. “I noticed all Laura’s furniture was gone, but the chairs and tables I’d inherited from my late father, plus my set of golf clubs and vintage radio – which Laura always hated – was sitting on the kitchen table in all its glory.”


“She’d included all my prized possessions in the ‘fixtures and fittings’. I was gutted. I still can’t get my head around how she did this in the space of a two week holiday.”

Although he was initially shocked, Craig said he got over it eventually and has decided that life is “too short to dwell on these things.” He said that he wants to stop all hostilities, for the sake of their children. “Who knows, maybe by getting this out of her system will allow us to build on the existing amicable relationship?”

But he did admit that his true feelings at the moment were “a little more colorful than that so probably won’t be printable.”

“Last time I marry an Italian, that’s for sure,” he added, wryly.

New startup could make death obsolete within 3 decades


In a development right out of a Neill Blomkamp sci-fi movie, Australian startup company Humai claims to be working on technology which will allow a person’s consciousness to be transferred to an artificial body after they’ve passed away.

“We’re using artificial intelligence and nanotechnology to store data of conversational styles, behavioral patterns, thought processes and information about how your body functions from the inside-out,” says Humai CEO Josh Bocanegra on the company’s website, explaining that the collated data would then be “coded into multiple sensor technologies, which will be built into an artificial body with the brain of a deceased human.”

Speaking to Australian Popular Science, Bocanegra expanded on how the company would go about achieving the goal of making death irrelevant within the next 30 years.

Brain-freeze moves beyond ice-cream

“We’ll first collect extensive data on our members for years prior to their death via various apps we’re developing,” explained Bocanegra, also stating that once a subject has passed on, Humai would “freeze the brain using cryonics technology,” and then “when the technology is fully developed we’ll implant the brain into an artificial body.”

But how would Humai face the challenge of preventing brain deterioration? According to Bocanegra, Humai will “use nanotechnology to repair and improve cells,” with the CEO also confident that “cloning technology is going to help with this too.”

So far, Humai has just 5 staff members, including two researchers, an A.I. expert and an ambassador, and is funded entirely by Bocanegra himself.

Is this all a matter of ‘pie in the sky’ wishful thinking, or could Bocanegra succeed in his goal of “making death optional”? The Humai CEO believes that whatever happens, “every step we take toward understanding how to get your thoughts to control an artificial body will be huge progress,” however, Bocanegra is “confident that in the process we’ll develop a technology that will even save lives.”

Man gets four-year sentence for stealing brains from museum, selling them


mug-shot-of-david-charles360An Indiana man who admitted stealing human brain samples and other tissue from a medical museum and selling them received a four-year jail sentence Wednesday.

Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry said that 21-year-old David Charles had pleaded guilty to burglary and had three years of his sentence suspended.

Curry said Charles admitted to breaking into the Indiana Medical History Museum several times in 2013 to steal jars of preserved tissue. He was arrested in December 2013 after a San Diego man who purchased about six jars of brain tissue on eBay for $600 alerted authorities.

The Indianapolis Star reported that Charles was arrested when authorities arranged a meeting between Charles and an eBay seller who provided the brain tissue to the San Diego buyer. Authorities said Charles stole 60 more jars of human tissue the day before the meeting.

Investigators matched a bloody fingerprint on a white piece of paper left at the crime scene to Charles. Fox 59 also reported that Charles tried to sell the tissue through his Facebook page. In one status update, dated Oct. 14, 2013, Charles wrote ” yo I got a bunch of human brains in jars for sale [hit me up] for details u [sic] know u [sic] want one for Halloween.”

As part of Charles’ sentence, he is required to obtain a high school diploma or GED and will spend one year on home detention and two years on probation.

The museum is located on the site of the Central State Hospital, which treated patients with psychiatric and mental disorders between 1848 and 1994. The museum’s director said at the time of the theft that the tissue came from autopsies conducted between the 1890s and 1940s.

Creepy Japanese startup promises you a wakeup call from an underaged girl


A new Japanese startup is promising to provide wakeup calls from realschoolgirls. It’s not cute or cool or innovative. It’s disgusting, and it represents a lowering of the bar for the country’s nascent startup scene.

Akihabara-hentai-shopJKMorning – a play on joshi kosei, the Japanese word for schoolgirl – allows users to request individual wakeup calls or schedule them at a specific time for a set range of dates. It’s essentially a hotel wakeup call, but instead of the front desk staff, it’s an underaged girl you’ve never met before. No price plans are available, but the startup says it will accept PayPal.

The creepiest part is JKMorning’s assertion that the girls are, in fact, still in high school. In an email to Tech in Asia, a startup spokesperson explains that the plan is to verify potential “morning callers” using their student ID cards. If their ID photo matches their JKMorning profile photo, they’re verified. Girls can work from anywhere, the startup says.

Pre-registration is currently open, with no launch date specified. Judging by the national obsession with schoolgirls – real or otherwise – this startup could actually be onto something. I hope otherwise.

Look, I’m not saying that every grown man in Japan has pedophilic tendencies – a nonsensical notion – but after you’ve lived here long enough, you begin to wonder how society can tolerate what appears to be a widespread obsession with young girls in school uniforms. Enough that a startup’s entire business model can be built around their voice.

AKB48, a J-pop group that’s utterly inescapable – from endless TV appearances to tie-ups with the local fast food chains and, shamefully, pachinko parlor endorsements – has six members under the age of 18 on its “A team.” The youngest is just 14.

I’ve met otaku who boast of their middle- and high-school aged “wives” – 2D and 3D characters from dating simulators like Love Plus or manga and anime franchises like K-On. There’s even the smart body pillow featuring a character described as a junior high schooler. The Japanese government doesn’t seem to mind – it even tolerates the sexualization of underage girls in anime and manga.

Hell, real kiddie porn wasn’t even criminalized until June 2014 – scumbags possessing it were even given a one-year grace period to dispose of it before the law went into effect. The maximum sentence for breaking the law is one year in jail and a US$10,000 fine. Again, that’s the maximum. Manga and anime are exempt, and I’ve been told that banning those would violate Japan’s constitutionally protected freedom of expression.

If you think Japan’s unhealthy obsession with schoolgirls doesn’t translate to abuse in the real world, you’re mistaken. A UN official was recently pressured to retract a statement claiming that 13 percent of schoolgirls in Japan engage inenjo kosai, or “compensated dating” with older men. While that figure may be inflated, the phenomenon is very real – real enough to land on the UN’s radar in the first place. Before blockbuster messaging app Line added age verification, Japanese tabloids claimed it was a hotbed for enjo kosai.

Vice recently broke news about a business in Tokyo where men could pay about US$40 to watch high-school girls folding paper cranes in their underwear. Customers had the option of choosing a girl and paying an additional fee to engage in sex acts in a separate room.

Similarly to enjo kosai, JK o-sampo is another disgraceful business the Vice story mentions, where men pay to take walks with schoolgirls. Walks that often end in a hotel room. Age of consent laws vary across Japan, but a lack of strict policing and pressure from both clients and criminal elements seem to ensure that the cycle of abuse continues.

A JKMorning spokesperson confirmed that calls will be live, with pre-recorded wakeup calls a possibility down the road. Asked how the startup would respond if its schoolgirl staff were verbally harassed – or solicited for prostitution – the startup replied, “That is the most important and serious problem that we are working on carefully.” The service itself doesn’t appear to be breaking any laws, but that doesn’t make it acceptable.

I love Japan, but I’m sick of the weird shit that a small percentage of the population uses to get their rocks off. I hope in earnest that shining a light on the disgraceful JK industry will expose it as the fringe, abhorrent thing that it is and lead to its swift demise.

​Neighbours Have Probably Seen You Naked says Study

A recent study in the UK has revealed that one in three people have seen their neighbours naked through a window. The study revealed the situations people saw their neighbour in, including dancing, arguing, or simply relaxing naked.
6123076The study was conducted by web-blinds.com and 97 percent of adults that participated in the study said that they have seen their neighbours in awkward situations through their windows.

42 percent said they have seen a neighbour crying through their window while 70 percent said that they have seen their neighbours arguing.

31 percent said that they have seen a neighbour naked while only 8 percent said they have seen their neighbours having sex.

Only 27 percent agreed that they looked away when they spotted their neighbours in awkward situations and only 52 percent said that they got caught before looking at their neighbours in awkward situations.

According to a Web-Blind.com spokesperson, “It is clear from our study that many Britons are unintentionally inviting “nosy” neighbours into their homes to witness the most private and intimate events of their lives.

“Taking some time to re-evaluate the privacy of a home, and looking into how easy neighbours can see through some windows would help prevent embarrassing situations in the future.”

Florida man found guilty of wife’s murder after posting photo on Facebook


A Florida man who posted a photograph of his wife’s body on Facebook was found guilty Wednesday of second-degree murder.

article-2387305-1B359D89000005DC-555_634x538Derek Medina of South Miami was accused of shooting his wife, Jennifer Alonso, in August 2013. After he killed her, authorities say, he posted a picture of her body on his Facebook page with a note.

Prosecutors are expected to seek a life sentence at a hearing set for January.

“No family should ever have to see their daughter killed and then exhibited world-wide on the internet like some macabre trophy to a husband’s anger as was Jennifer Alfonso,” Miami Dade State’s Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle said in a statement.

“Far, far too often this kind of domestic violence leads to injury and death. That’s why we all must end all forms of domestic violence,” she said.

The gruesome image stayed online and was passed around for at least five hours. Facebook was notified of the content and employees removed the picture and disabled Medina’s page and that of his deceased wife, according to Facebook.

In his note, Medina accused his wife of abusing him and asked his friends for their understanding for what he did to her because of it.

“Im going to prison or death sentence for killing my wife love you guys miss you guys takecare Facebook people you will see me in the news,” he purportedly wrote.

After he killed his wife, authorities say, Medina drove to see his family and then turned himself in to police. After he gave police his address, they drove to the scene, where they found the body.

The couple’s young daughter was still in the house, police have said. She was not physically hurt.
