The incident occurred in Taiwan, reports say the woman did not suffer any major injuries when the toilet went kaboom

Earlier this month, a woman in Taiwan somehow managed to blow up a toilet while desperately trying to kill a seriously nasty cockroach. No, really, check out the photo below to get a better idea of just how bad things turned out.

Apparently, cockroaches in Taiwan are so strong and powerful that, when it comes to killing them, simply stepping on them or hitting them over the head with a newspaper just doesn’t cut it. Steroids, perhaps? Could be.

The toilet was collateral damage

Reports say that the woman involved in this incident chanced to come across the creepy-crawler that ended up turning her life around while cleaning an office building in the municipality of Taoyuan City in northwestern Taiwan.

As soon as she laid eyes on the creature, the woman, identified only as an employee of a local clean-up firm, decided that she absolutely had to smite it. To this end, she first squashed the cockroach with her shoe. She then wrapped it in tissue paper and crushed it some more.

Just in case the creepy-crawler was the long-lost love child of the Hulk and Atom Ant, she then set the tissue paper the insect was wrapped in on fire and threw it into the toilet. Since the toilet had just been cleaned and was drowning in detergents, an explosion occurred.

The toilet didn’t stand a chance

The explosion that took place when the flaming tissue paper hit the cocktail of detergents turned out to be powerful enough to literally rip the toilet apart.

Whatever pieces of bug DNA might have remained intact after the cockroach had repeatedly been squashed were probably destroyed as well.

The good news is that neither the woman responsible for this catastrophe nor any the people who were at that time at work were injured when the toilet went kaboom, Metro informs.

One can only hope that, the next time she comes face to face with a roach, this lady will ask for help and let others send it to the underworld.

No, You Should Never Brag On Facebook About Your 16 Outstanding Arrest Warrants

0

eddiefbA Texas man who bragged on Facebook about having 16 outstanding arrest warrants was busted after a tipster called cops to report the ill-advised online boasting.

Edward Smith, 22, was collared following a January 20 post reporting, “So, I have 16 warrants out right now. Lol they know where I’m at tho so, it must not be TOO bad.”

When cops in Mineral Wells, a city 80 miles west of Dallas, researched warrant records, they determined that Wells only had 14 active warrants, some of which were three years old. According to records, Wells has been cited for petty theft, driving without insurance, and other minor infractions (for which he owes more than $1400 in fines).

edwardsmithmugshotSmith–seen in the mug shot–was subsequently released from custody after agreeing to a fine payment schedule. While his personal page appears to have been deleted, an Eddie Smith “community” page has appeared on Facebook.

After Mineral Wells police arrested Smith, they went to Facebook and made their own post: “In the ‘you can’t make this up’ file, a subject posted on Facebook that they had a bunch of Mineral Wells PD warrants but we couldn’t do anything because they don’t live in the city limits…then we show up and arrest them on 16 warrants.”

Comcast Apologizes After Customer’s Name Shows Up as ‘A–Hole’ on Bill

Everyone knows that Comcast … struggles with customer service. Now, new evidence has surfaced to suggest that at least one of its employees is also just plain mean.

Via Elliott.org, a Spokane, Wash., resident named Lisa Brown claims that, after she called Comcast to cancel her family’s cable, her husband’s name was changed from Ricardo Brown to “Asshole” Brown on her most recent cable provider bill.

Brown’s story surfaced in a report from consumer advocate blogger Christopher Elliott:

“Brown has tried to fix the name herself,” he wrote. “She’s visited her local Comcast office and phoned higher-ups in the Washington region. But she wasn’t getting anywhere and needed help.”

Apparently, Lisa Brown called to cancel the cable portion of the bill because her family was experiencing financial difficulties and she wanted to cut costs. She was — of course — transferred to a retention specialist, who tried to persuade her to sign up for a new two-year contract. When the specialist proved ineffective, she was charged a $60 cancellation fee.

Elliott said that it was only after he reached out to the Comcast communications staff that the company responded to Brown’s complaints.

While Jenni Moyer, senior director of Comcast corporate communications, said she couldn’t verify that timeline, she did confirm to Yahoo Tech that the incident happened. She also offered an apology.

“We have spoken with our customer and apologized for this completely unacceptable and inappropriate name change,” she told Yahoo Tech. “We have zero tolerance for this type of disrespectful behavior and are conducting a thorough investigation to determine what happened. We are working with our customer to make this right and will take appropriate steps to prevent this from happening again.”

At the very least, my girl Lisa should definitely get her $60 back. And maybe free HBO for life? Yeah, definitely free HBO for life.

Surveillance Video Captures UPS Driver Tossing Package, Peeing On Man’s Home

0

A man in Houston received a special delivery earlier this month.

But it’s not the kind he expected from UPS.

Ben Lucas scanned video off his surveillance camera outside his home and couldn’t believe what he saw.

The driver came up to a locked gate and, instead of setting the package down, he chucked it over the gate.

The move damaged just about everything inside.

But adding insult to injury, the driver unzipped his pants and peed on the side of the house.

“So basically I paid someone to come to my house and pee on it,” said Lucas.

Lucas called UPS.  He said the company gave him a lukewarm response.

“I just wanted them to hear me and maybe give me an email address where I
could send them the video. They simply just didn’t want to see it,” said
Lucas.

So, he posted the video on social media.  It drew a strong response from UPS.

A manager called Lucas, offered an apology and offered to send a gift to make up for the poor service.

The driver who relieved himself has been fired.

Elementary Students Ordered To Drop Their Pants After Feces Found On Gym Floor

0

gustine-texas-school-gym-665x385A school in the small town of Gustine, Texas, had an interesting day on Monday when close to two dozen elementary school students were ordered to drop their pants and expose their underwear. This happened after feces was found on the floor of the school gymnasium, and school officials wanted to find out who did it.

“I felt uncomfortable, and I didn’t want to do it,” said 11-year-old Eliza Medina. “I felt like they violated my privacy.”

WTSP reports that young Eliza Medina was one of just about two dozen students that were rounded up and told to take down their pants. The boys were taken into one room while the girls were led into another. It was then, Maria Medina said, that the children got the command.

“…to pull down their pants to check them to see if they could find anything.”

Maria Medina, Eliza’s mother, said that the officials at the school recently “have been finding poop on the gym floor.”

Sure, that’s a frustrating situation for any educational facility, but Medina said that was no reason for the school to take those actions against the students. She said that forcing children to partially strip down is no way to conduct a proper investigation.

“I was furious… I mean, I was furious. If you can’t do your job or you don’t know what you’re doing, you need to be fired. You shouldn’t be here.”

According to WFAA, some of the children tried to speak up when they were ordered to drop their pants by school officials. Eliza said she was one of those that attempted to speak out against it, but it didn’t matter.

“I said I didn’t want to, but I was told I had to because all the kids had to.”

Other parents in Gustine, Texas, are furious as to what the schoolhouse had their children do on Monday. Ken Baugh, Superintendent of the Gustine Independent School District, said that the educators and officials had taken it too far.

“That’s not appropriate, and we do not condone that. So you would take disciplinary action.”

Baugh has said that children were advised to drop their pants just a little bit and not all the way down. Eliza Medina said that isn’t true, and that she and others had to drop their pants “to where your butt is.”

Parents don’t seem to care whether their children’s pants were dropped a little or a lot. They feel it is far too much, and that exposing their underwear for an inspection is totally unacceptable.

An investigation into the situation is ongoing and Baugh said he hopes it is wrapped up some time on Wednesday after hearing from all parties involved.

Parents in Gustine, Texas are planning to show up at the school board meeting on Thursday night. They want someone to be held responsible for their children having to drop their pants and want it taken care of appropriately.
