Man Beat His Two Cats To Death With Golf Club Because They Betrayed Him

0

An Erie man pleaded guilty Monday in Erie County Court to beating his two cats to death with a golf club.

Christopher-BisbeeChristopher J. Bisbee, 32, pleaded guilty to one second-degree misdemeanor count of cruelty to animals in a plea deal that dropped an additional cruelty to animals count.

According to court records, Bisbee attacked the cats after one of them scratched him. He told investigators he felt “betrayed” by the animals.

He said he “struck both cats numerous times with a golf club until they no longer were moving.”

As part of the agreement, Assistant District Attorney Mark Richmond said, Bisbee, of the 900 block of Pennsylvania Avenue, may not own any domestic animals while serving his sentence. He also must pay $263 restitution to the Humane Society of Northwestern Pennsylvania.

The charge carries a maximum penalty of two years in prison and a $5,000 fine. Sentencing is set for Oct. 7 before Judge Shad Connelly.

Bisbee’s lawyer, Stephen Sebald, said Bisbee waived his right to a preliminary hearing and applied to the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program, a special probation program for nonviolent first-time offenders, but he was denied admission.

Bisbee also “proactively sought mental health counseling,” Sebald said. A report from Bisbee’s doctor will be submitted to the court before sentencing, Sebald said.

Erie County Detective Greg Acri filed the charges after an investigation by Humane Society Animal Enforcement Officer Merle Wolfgang.

Wolfgang said a tip triggered the investigation. According to the criminal complaint, several peo ple at Bis bee’s residence implicated Bisbee in the animals’ deaths.

She retrieved the cats’ bodies from Bisbee’s trash June 25, 2013, and discovered that they had “apparent trauma to their heads.”

An examination at the North East Animal Hospital indicated the cause of death was “focused blunt force trauma to the head.”

In an interview with investigators in August, Bisbee admitted he had killed the cats.

“I am glad one of the charges stuck.” Wolfgang said Monday. “If there are mental health issues, I am glad he is getting some help.”

Chinese mall’s large pink parking spaces for women seen as sexist by some, wonderful by others

China’s World Metropolis Center (WMC) has become the center of controversy recently over their decision to lay out 10 parking spaces intended for women only. As a result, what we assume was a well-intentioned gesture by the shopping center has seemed to upset some people online drawing cries of discrimination. On the other hand, visitors to the mall seemed pleased with the initiative.

Study ‘Says’ Sniffing Farts Is Good For You, But Something Doesn’t Smell Right

0

Forget “silent but deadly.” How about “rank but restorative”?

r-FART-600x275Media sites recently reported news that delighted flatulence lovers: Scientists had published a study that said smelling farts is good for you. The only problem was, reports on the study kinda … stunk.

Here’s what happened.

Researchers at the University of Exeter said the hydrogen sulfide that we emit when we cut the cheese protects mitochondria, which are the cell’s “power producers.” Dr. Mark Wood, a researcher at Exeter, explained that hydrogen sulfide is the stinky component of passing gas “and could in fact be a healthcare hero with significant implications for future therapies for a variety of diseases.”

Somehow that was taken to mean that smelling farts could ward off harmful diseases.

But read the following before you start pounding down dried apricots and baked beans: The Guardian pointed out that the study never mentions that smelling your farts is healthy. And NBC News reinforced the skepticism.

Still, that won’t stop us from having some fun — and a little hope.

If you’re going to rob a bank, don’t wear a shirt with your first name on it and don’t drive your own car

Police and FBI agents cracked a Denver bank robbery case in five hours — but they had lots of help from the suspect.

Martinez_John_David_1406161012818_7025292_ver1.0_640_480According to court records, 68-year-old John David Martinez was wearing a black T-shirt with his first name on it when he entered the Wells Fargo bank at 1777 W. 38th Ave. just after 9 a.m. Tuesday.

The man’s next mistake was driving a silver Honda sedan that was registered in his name. Investigators soon identified Martinez as the suspect through the license plate, according to a police probable cause statement supporting the man’s arrest.

After being greeted by a female teller, the suspect, an older man with white hair and a salt-and-pepper beard, said, “This is a robbery, give me the money,” the statement read.

He handed the teller a dark zippered bag, which she filled with money. Then he instructed the teller to hand the bag to the next teller, who added money to it.

“That’s enough,” the robber said.

Then he walked from the bank and took off in the Honda sedan.

An investigator identified the car owner as John David Martinez and obtained a copy of his driver’s license photo, the statement said. The investigator noted that the DMV photo of Martinez matched surveillance video images of the man who robbed the Wells Fargo bank.

The investigator showed a bank teller four photographs of different men and she pointed to the fourth photo of Martinez. “That’s him. He’s the one who robbed the bank this morning,” the teller said. A second teller also picked Martinez’s photo out of the lineup, according to the police statement.

At about 2 p.m., police found Martinez’s silver 2001 Honda Accord parked at a Ramada Inn at 2601 Zuni St. The motel manager told police that Martinez and his wife were in room No. 142.

Police and FBI agents went to the room and arrested Martinez.

As a police investigator was driving Martinez to the FBI Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force headquarters, a supervisor called the detective’s cellphone. The supervisor told the detective to call back when he could talk privately, without using the hands-free speaker.

“He probably wants to tell you he found the money,” Martinez told the cop. The detective looked at the suspect, who added: “That I took from the back this morning.”

During a recorded interview, Martinez waived his right to remain silent, police said.

Martinez said that he and his wife had been evicted from their home three weeks ago and they’d moved into the Ramada Inn three days earlier.

The suspect told investigators that he got up that morning while his wife was still asleep, drove straight to the bank and robbed it, the police statement stated.

He drove back to the motel and later “told his wife that he had borrowed the money and did not tell her that he had robbed the bank,” according to the statement.

Martinez was booked into Denver jail on investigation of felony robbery involving $20,000 or more, according to the Denver jail website.

Martinez has prior arrests for assault with a deadly weapon, forgery, criminal impersonation, DUI hit and run and resisting arrest, according to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.

232 Teeth Extracted from Mouth of Teenager

Indian teen getting his 232 teeth pulled out in MumbaiDoctors at Sir J.J. Hospital in Mumbai, India, might have created a world record by removing 232 teeth from the mouth of a teenager.

Ashik Gavai, 17, had visited the hospital with a routine complaint of pain and swelling on the right side of his mouth. However, a series of tests revealed an abnormal growth affecting the second molar on the lower right side of his jaw.

“Initially, it was not very clear what it could be and so we decided to go in for surgery,” said Sunanda Dhivare-Palwankar, head of the hospital’s dental department.

Further examination during the surgery left the team of doctors stunned as they discovered scores and scores of tiny teeth popping out of that abnormal molar.

“We started picking small teeth from the abnormal molar. These pearlies were of varying sizes, some as tiny as a grain of mustard and some almost the size of a marble. At the final count, we had a total of 232 of them. The fact that it was coming from a single molar was very unique,” said Dr Dhivare-Palwankar.

Further to this, a rock-like formation was also discovered inside the affected tooth, which had to be removed by a dentist’s drill.

Indian teen getting his 232 teeth pulled out in Mumbai“We had to resort to the age-old, now outdated, ‘chisel-mallet’ procedure to break down that hard formation as it was putting immense pressures on the jaw bone and surrounding healthy teeth,” explained Dr Dhivare-Palwankar.

Dr Dhivare-Palwankar described the condition as a ‘developmental anomaly’, known in the medical profession as a ‘Complex Composite Odonntom’ or a benign tumour of the tooth. The condition causes difficulty in eating, swallowing and can lead to the swelling of the face but it is not life threatening.

The entire surgery lasted over seven hours.

“We believe this is a world record, but we will carry out more research before taking any further steps in the matter,” said Dr Dhivare-Palwankar.

What should you do if you’re feeling a bit hot? Maybe gouge your eyes out?

A prisoner has gouged out his own eyes in protest at the hot conditions inside his jail cell, it has been revealed.

jailThe man in his 50s is said to have self-inflicted the injuries at HMP Nottingham just days before he was due to be released.

The incident occurred as inmates were protesting about the sweltering heat inside their cells and general poor conditions of the prison.

East Midlands Ambulance Service confirmed they were called to the prison in Sherwood on 21 July to treat a male patient. He was then taken to the Queen’s Medical centre for his injuries.

Police were also called to the scene but established that “no crime had taken place”.

A source inside the jail told the Nottingham Post: “Somebody cut their eyes out of their face. He was protesting.

“The heat is so high. Prisoners can’t deal with it. They need to let some air in the room. It is only going to get worse.”

The incident took place as temperatures hit around 25C (77F) in Nottinghamshire.

A Ministry of Justice spokesperson said: “A prisoner at HMP Nottingham was taken to hospital following an act of self-harm. Staff reacted quickly and paramedics attended. No other prisoners were involved.

“The prison is investigating the incident and police were informed as a matter of course.”

The incident occurred a few months after more than 20 prisoners refused to return to their cells during a separate protest on conditions inside the prison.

Asst secretary Glyn Travis from the Prison Officers Association said the demonstration raised “serious concerns” about the staffing levels at the prison.

A report by the Independent Monitoring Board (IMB) was also critical of the prison saying budget cuts and the loss of 140 officers would result in “more prisoner disruption and a further reduction in already low staff morale”.

Wonderful, Just Wonderful: Terrifying New World’s Largest Flying Aquatic Insect Found In China

giant-dobsonfly-1

This is the giant dobsonfly, the current record holder for largest flying aquatic insect. They can measure almost 8.5-inches across. For reference, that is 8-inches entirely too large for my liking.

Large enough to cover the face of a human adult, this scary-looking insect is also known among entomologists as an indicator of water quality, says the museum.
The giant dobsonfly makes its home in bodies of clean water and is highly sensitive to any changes in the water’s pH as well as the presence of trace elements of pollutants. If the water is slightly contaminated, the giant dobsonfly will move on to seek cleaner waters.

GAGA VIBRATOR: It’s A Sex Toy … And A Camera

0

n-GAGA-SEX-TOY-largeIt’s not unusual for people to be filmed using sex toys.

It is, however, unusual for them to be filming their innards with the sex toy.

That’s the premise behind the “Gaga,” a vibrator that comes with a camera lens and a light so users will be able to see inside whatever orifice the device is being inserted into.

The Gaga was recently introduced into the world by Svakom, a China-based tech company.

The company claims in its strange YouTube commercial that the Gaga is designed for women’s healthcare. That makes sense, since only a trained medical expert might be able recognize the various body parts the camera is exploring.

The $180 cost might seem steep for what is basically a vibrating “vag-cam,” but that also includes a USB charger cable for your laptop, so the insightful shots of you or your partner’s nether regions can be downloaded to your monitor. A wireless app also allows the camera to be controlled remotely, according to the Daily Dot.

As bizarre as the Gaga may seem, it’s not the only bizarre sex toy that has aroused attention in recent memory.

Masturbatory aid purveyor Fleshlight has released the Launchpad, an iPad case that allows a man to attach his Fleshlight directly to an iPad, so that he can simulate sex with whomever — or whatever — is on the screen.

Amazon Amanda Gets Paid To Squash Men

0

n-AMAZON-AMANDA-large300Sometimes, your job is a soul-crushing slog that drains the life out of your cold, hardened body. So what better way to warm those bones than paying to have your body crushed?

Amazon Amanda makes her living doing just that.

The 6-foot-3, 280-pound fetish model gets paid by dudes who want to be squashed, crushed, wrestled or even just be seen with a big woman.

Amanda, 38, says she’s different than other fetish workers because there’s no sex involved.

“Although some of my clients get aroused during the sessions, Iʼm never naked,” she says. “As far as fetish work goes Iʼm considered a prude.”

A prude, maybe, if you count covering your clients in plastic wrap and smothering them with your 63-inch hips and 44DD breasts. Her Twitter feed has plenty of that:

She’s been around for a while — she made a cameo on Tosh.0 in 2010, video below — but she’s making the rounds online again presumably because content provider Barcroft Media wanted to sell a photo of her. It worked. She’s been written up this week in Metro, The Mirror, the Scottish Daily Record, and our U.K. site.

One of her biggest fans, 5-foot-3 Sergio Miranda of New Jersey, says he’s “always had a fascination with big women.”

“For me theyʼre more true to being a woman than the skinny models you see,” he says. “Being seen out on the street with an amazon model feeds my ego. I prefer to see my preference for big women as a lifestyle rather than a fetish.”

Anyway, gawk at this video:

Le pew: Man builds ‘biggest fart machine ever,’ plans to destroy France with it

ai2rjsegcjrc9ok3ts6v

Colin Furze—maker of the coolest Wolverine claws—wants to build a giant butt and fart at France from Dover. That’s why he has built the biggest valveless pulse jet machine ever—these engines powered the Nazi V-1 bombs that terrified London during WW2 making an infernal noise that sounds like a furious fart from hell.

Now that the engine is done he’s actually going to build a gigantic butt, install the machine in its anus, put the whole thingamajig on the cliffs of Dover, point it at France, and fart on July 24—around 6-7 pm local time—to see if the frenchies at the other side of the channel can hear it. I really hope they do. And I really hope the Queen gives this guy a knighthood.
