Villagers in a rural Chinese village have stumbled upon a drink which they believe to be effective against cancer, with dozens of households now partaking in the special brew on a twice-daily basis.
We’re sure that anyone would be prepared to make time in their daily routine for a warm drink every morning and night if it potentially meant staying fit and healthy well into retirement, but we doubt many would be so keen once they heard that said drink was little more than cow dung and sheep’s droppings mixed with warm water.
The story of the unusual remedy’s creation goes, Xinhua.jp reports, that an elderly woman living in the village of Xiangtan in China’s Hunan Province was last year diagnosed with lung cancer and told that she would not have long to live. Her son, who was at that time working far away in China’s southernmost province of Hainan, heard tell of a “remedy” – a drink made from ground-up animal feces and water – that was said to be especially effective against cancer, which he then conveyed to his mother.
As unpalatable as it sounds, some eight months after having started drinking the brown brew, the old woman is not only still alive but claims to have seen vast improvements in her health, prompting families in the area to start drinking the poopy mixture themselves as a preventative measure.
The manure used in the odd concoction is reportedly collected from mountains and hills around the village, with both cow and sheep feces being used. The animal waste is dried out, stir-fried, and then crushed down into a fine powder. This powder is then mixed with hot water and drunk twice a day; once in the morning and again at night.
It is not clear whether the elderly woman has been back to her doctor for tests since beginning her self-prescribed treatment, but we wish her all the best and hope she continues to feel better. All the same, we’d advise against accepting any cups of coffee or strong tea if you ever happen to find yourself in the village and are offered a quick brew…
Two Louisiana women were arrested in separate incidents on the same day for abandoning their children in cars — so they could partake in the joys of shopping and fellatio.
“Both of them were crying hysterically,” Officer Kim Myers the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office told the Daily News. “While the deputies were trying to calm the children down, Princess walked up about 15 minutes later.”
At that point, she admitted she was on the other side of the parking lot in her boyfriend’s car performing oral sex, authorities said.
Marks was arrested, charged with child desertion and released on a $5,000 bond.
Deputies from Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office learned of the incident when a concerned citizen walked by the car and called the police. The SUV’s windows were down.
The children were placed in the care of family members.
Later that day, about 2:30 p.m., Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a similar call — only this time, the car was hot.
Faith D. LaFleur, 26, also from Lake Charles, allegedly admitted she abandoned her three children — an 11-month-old, a 5-year-old and 2-year-old — so she could go shopping.
Two of the children were strapped in child seats while the other played with the keys in the ignition.
An ambulance was called on scene and the children were found to be sweaty, dirty and hungry.
LaFleur was arrested and charged with three counts of cruelty to a juvenile. Her bond was set at $100,000.
These incidents follow several other high-profile cases of parents abandoning their children in cars — sometimes with fatal consequences.
A Texas woman was arrested after allegedly breaking into the home of her husband’s friend and sexually assaulting him, police said.
Hoelting told police that, in just a nightgown, she snuck into her husband’s friend’s bedroom while he was sleeping Monday night, according to a felony criminal complaint obtained byThe Smoking Gun.
Hoelting said she took off her nightgown and, in just underwear, got into the man’s bed. She said she wrapped her legs around the man’s waist and kissed him, according to the complaint.
The man said he woke up to find someone on top of him, “fondling his genitals” and “attempting to perform fellatio upon him,” according to the complaint.
He said he did not know who it was at first and had to use a flashlight application on his phone to find out, according to police. He said he soon realized it was his friend’s wife with “her breasts exposed” who had put his penis in her mouth.
The man told Hoetling to get off of him and leave the house. He said he called police when she refused to leave.
Hoelting has been held in county jail since Monday night.
She was arrested three other times this month. She was collared for alleged theft Oct. 14, alleged assault Oct. 16 and alleged public intoxication Oct. 21.
Imagine having a beautiful dream in which you are a famous celebrity, fawned over by the masses with access to nearly limitless riches.
Then you wake up with blood in your mouth and a swollen face.
This is something like what appears to have happened to poor Jayci Underwood who was filmed by her husband Matt shortly after she woke up from getting her wisdom teeth removed.
“I just wanted to be Nicki Minaj when I woke up,” Underwood says no the verge of tears. “I just wanted to have her butt and her face.”
Underwood was also looking forward to leveraging her celebrity cache to become best friends with Ellen DeGeneres.
“Ellen DeGeneres is generous… that’s literally her name and I love her,” Underwood says.
There are those who have cast doubt on the authenticity of this video. She does seem to be saying some prettaaaay crazy things, even for someone on pain meds. Also, it’s not hard to stuff cotton balls in your mouth and pretend to be feeling loopy.
