Fraud-Girls Tricked Into Sex By Warlock (male witch)

William Lambert, pictured, is accused of raping four schoolgirls in a church yard
A U.K. court heard Thursday that a gravedigger tricked girls into having sex with him by claiming he was a warlock who could grant them special powers.Jurors heard that William Lambert, 74, lured girls to his church shed and raped one of them on a gravestone, British newspaper the Mirror reported.The church shed was decorated in a mystical theme, and Lambert would light incense and hang a red sheet above the girls' waists so they couldn't see what he was doing, court heard."These young, vulnerable, impressionable girls were looking for attention and they were spellbound by his extraordinary claims about a spiritual world," the Mirror reported prosecutor Gillian Etherton said. "He persuaded them he could give them special powers by way of sexual intercourse."Lambert faces four charges of rape and three of sexual assault in connection with the alleged rape and sexual assault of four girls between the ages of 11 and 15 in the 1980s

Weird-Spray paint addict happy to be caught in the act

Kelly Gibson

He was arrested at his home in Fort Wayne, Indiana after his wife Elizabeth made a call to the police following an argument.
Gibson had been arrested for the same offence 47 times prior to his latest brush with the law.He was found by police with a can of silver spray paint in one hand and a paint covered plastic bag in the other.He had silver paint covering the lower part of his face, including his nose.
Reports suggest that the Gibson's house smelt of toxic chemicals.The strong substances gives the person, who inhales a 'high', but sustained abuse can lead to liver, kidney and brain damage.The addict was photographed for police records with the evidence there for all to see. His latest arrest will possibly do little to shake his habit.

Smart-Turks fail cops' Scam Test
ISTANBUL -- Turkish police donned white coats and stethoscopes to disguise themselves as doctors, then knocked on people’s doors to see how easily they would fall for a confidence scam.The undercover police officers told residents of the southeastern city of Gaziantep they were screening for high blood pressure and handed out pills, according to Turkish media.They were alarmed when residents at 86 out of 100 households visited on Tuesday swallowed the pills immediately.Police later returned to warn residents to be more cautious. The police pills were harmless placebos. But a local gang had been using the same technique to give people heavy sedatives and then burgle them.
Turkish police in other provinces have also used novel methods to test citizens’ gullibility.

Obsessed-: Man gets Will and Kate Tattooed on teeth
Is there something stuck on your teeth? Oh no, that’s just a tattoo of Prince William and Kate Middleton.One man has officially won The Windsor Knot’s royal wedding mania title by willingly paying £1,000 to submit to six hours in a dentist’s chair in order to have the famous duo emblazoned on his choppers. British plumber Barmy Baz Franks, 29, got a dentist to use ultrafine brushes and stencils to paint images of the smiling royals. The temporary ivory art – known as “gnasher tats” – will last roughly three months, depending on how much Barmy Baz Franks brushes. “I’ve done some unusual dental cosmetics in my time, but this was certainly one of the strangest,” said the dentist, Dr. Neil Gerrard, in an interview with Small World News Service.

Creative-Speeder Makes Fake 911 Calls to avoid ticket

Florida motorists can get quite creative when trying to get out of a speeding ticket, but Jonathan Paul Rorech may have taken the cake.
The Naples man had what he thought was a foolproof plan to get out of a ticket, police say — make a prank 911 call.
After being pulled over by a sheriff's deputy Tuesday, Rorech placed the emergency 911 from his cell phone, the police report showed, and reported there was a shooting in the area and a victim was on the ground, the Naples News reported.
The call was dispatched to the deputy, who dropped what he was doing to attend to the alleged more serious matter, the police report stated.
Rorech, who was allegedly driving with a suspended license and going 45 mph in a 30 mph zone, drove away thinking he had pulled a fast one on the law, apparently.Unfortunately for Rorech, the police have heard of caller ID..

Peace-First A Wall, Now A Divorce

NEW YORK — A feuding New York City couple who built a wall through the house that neither one would give up has finally been granted a divorce. Simon and Chana Taub, members of New York's ultra-orthodox Hasidic community, had been living in their three-story brownstone separated by a wall that a judge ordered built since both refused to move. New York state doesn't allow the speedy dissolution of a marriage without proof that one spouse is at fault, and neither of the Taubs would admit to fault.The couple filed for divorce in 2005, but a jury rejected it.

Different-Drunk Driver on way to 'Test Teeth' at KFC

A WOMAN caught drink-driving has told Melbourne police she was on her way to try her new teeth on fried chicken. The 55-year-old from St Kilda East was caught outside the Prahran Police Station on Friday night and recorded a reading of 0.052.
It was her second offence in 10 years and she received an automatic loss of licence.
Police say the woman said she had decided to drive because she wanted to try out her new false teeth on KFC.
Also in Melbourne, police pulled over a vehicle at Prahran on yesterday with two males standing on the back seats protruding from their waist up through the sunroof. Police fined the two almost $360 each and the driver $480 and gave him six demerit points.
And early today they pulled over a lone learner driver at Lynbrook after clocking him at 132km/h.

Why-San Francisco may ban male circumcision

SAN FRANCISCO - A U.S. group opposed to male circumcision said they have collected more than enough signatures for a proposal to ban the practice in San Francisco as a ballot measure for November elections. But legal experts said that even if the move was approved by a majority of the city’s voters, such a measure would almost certainly face a legal challenge as an unconstitutional infringement on freedom of religion.
Circumcision is a ritual obligation for infant Jewish boys, and is also a common rite among Muslims, who account for the largest share of circumcised men worldwide.
The leading proponent of a ban, Lloyd Schofield, 59, acknowledged circumcision is widely socially accepted but he said it should still be outlawed. “It’s excruciatingly painful and permanently damaging surgery that’s forced on men when they’re at their weakest and most vulnerable,” he told Reuters. His group submitted about 12,000 signatures supporting his proposed ban, said Rachel Gosiengfiao, campaign services manager for the city’s Department of Elections. The agency has 30 days to verify the petitions. He needs 7,200 valid signatures to qualify.
Watch-Woman sued after elaborate online hoax

A lawsuit against a U.S. woman who perpetrated an elaborate online hoax - in which she pretended to be a volunteer firefighter and as many as 20 of his friends - will be going ahead.Paula Bonhomme had exchanged e-mails, letters, photos and gifts with who she believed was a man in Colorado, and had even spoken to him nearly every day on the phone, the Chicago Tribune reports.
But about seven months after "Jesse Jubilee James" died suddenly of liver cancer in 2006, Bonhomme's friends discovered the truth - that James had been an invention of Janna St. James, a woman from the suburbs of Chicago.St. James had also befriended Bonhomme, posing online as a friend of James's, and had visited Bonhomme after James's so-called death."Who does that?" Bonhomme told the Tribune. "When you take it all apart and look at it, oh, you feel like such an idiot. ... But when it's unspooled on you tiny bit by tiny bit and mixed in with reality, how do you even know where the lie begins?"Bonhomme filed a lawsuit that was dismissed in December 2009, the Tribune reported.
In March, an Illinois appeals court reinstated the case.

Different-Man's Sperm Found in Co-worker's Water Bottle


A California man was sentenced Friday after twice putting his semen into the water bottle of a female co-worker. Michael Kevin Lallana, 32, was ordered to register as a sex offender for life and sentenced to six months in jail as he was found to have received sexual gratification from the acts.On Jan. 14, 2010, Lallana deposited semen into the unidentified woman's water bottle at Northwestern Mutual Financial Network in Newport Beach, Calif., according to a press release from the Orange County District Attorney.

The woman then unknowingly drank the water, but threw it away after she realized the beverage was contaminated. Again, on April 6, 2010, Lallana committed the same act. The woman was suspicious of the taste in the water, and sent it to a private laboratory to be tested. Lab tests confirmed it contained semen. Police investigated, and charged Lallana. He was convicted on Feb. 24.

Attraction-Gym offers naked exercise sessions
Two naked fitness enthusiasts look to get into shape
The move by the Basque-based Easy Gym has been prompted by a noticeable decline in membership, which the owners believe is the result of the nation's recession. Whether the initiative will pay off remains to be seen, as sweaty body marks on machines often prove the bane of gym users' lives, even with the presence of clothes.Speaking to the BBC, gym owner Merche Laseca was keen to stress that the idea had been motivated by a finances, rather than any strongly-held belief that people should be allowed to work out in the buff.
Mr Laseca said: 'I'm not a nudist myself, though I have no problem with it. But this initiative is about the money.'The idea emerged after gym owners found out two local swimming pools were offering monthly nude bathing sessions, which had proved popular.While the idea of exercising in the nude is unlikely to be to everyone's taste, evidence suggests that this was the preference among athletes in Ancient Greece.

Missing-Man attacks Girls Gone Wild tour bus

It wasn't the girls going wild at a Michigan bar. Police say a 51-year-old Portland, Ore., man attacked a Girls Gone Wild tour bus after he became disgruntled due to a lack of women at a party at the Red Horse Bar in Saginaw Township on Wednesday night, the Saginaw News reported Friday.According to cops, the man tore the side mirrors off the pink tour bus, decorated with huge images of scantily-clad women on the side, while it was parked outside the bar.Police said the man became irate because fliers said there would be barely-dressed women at the party. A co-owner of the bar told the newspaper the event was a "shim-sham" and no women from Girls Gone Wild entered the bar, despite patrons paying a $10 cover charge. The man was arrested, but there was no word on charges

Stupid-Man places fake 911 call to get out of traffic stop

A routine traffic stop ended with an arrest after a Florida man allegedly called 911 with a fake emergency to prevent an officer from discovering he'd been driving without a licence.At around 1 a.m. Tuesday, an officer in southern Florida's Collier County pulled over a car that had been driving about 25 kilometres over the speed limit.

The driver said he'd left his licence at home, police said.While the officer was running the man's information through the police data systems, he heard a report of a shooting with "one subject on the ground" at a bar in North Naples, Fla.The officer decided to respond to the shooting and sent the driver on his way.Upon arriving at the bar, the officer was told by his supervisor that there had been no shooting, and immediately suspected that the 911 call had been a fake, police said.The officer tracked the 911 call to a North Carolina cellphone which he called and received the driver's voicemail. He then listened to the 911 call and recognized the driver's voice.About an hour and a half after the initial traffic stop, the officer went to the driver's home and arrested him.Jonathan Paul Rorech, 31, was charged with making a false 911 call and two misdemeanor counts of driving on a suspended licence

Weird-My sister-in-law breastfeeds her teenaged son - and her husband

Coleen - Shocked (Pic: Getty)
Dear Coleen,

I liked my sister-in-law from the first time we met years ago. She has two sons, with my brother and the eldest is 13.
I’ve had concerns for some time as this boy’s overweight – he’s 12st, but the biggest problem is my sister-in-law still breastfeeds both boys.
Our whole family feels very uncomfortable when we visit and she’s sitting on the sofa with one of the lads lying across her on her breast.
The problem is getting worse as my kids go to the same school as their boys and after a falling out they told some other children the boys still breastfeed. Now they’re getting called names and someone even put a nappy in one of the boys’ school bags.
They’re both lovely boys, I feel upset for them. I want to speak to the school but don’t know where to start. I feel so sorry for them – it’s not their fault.We have keys to each other’s houses and last week I let myself in to find her breastfeeding my brother.
They weren’t embarrassed at all. She just said, “Poor love, he’s got a bit of a cold and this will do him good”.
I didn’t know where to look – in fact I can’t look my brother in the eye any more.
You may be more worldly than I am and might tell me this is normal, but it just seems to wrong to me.
I’d love to hear your advice.

Coleen says..
I may be shot down in flames for saying it, but I think it’s weird. This is all about her, not her kids. There is no health benefit from breastfeeding children this age. In my opinion she doesn’t want her kids to grow up or not rely on her any more, and now she’s even including her husband. It’s selfish and needy.
Like you, I just feel desperately sorry for the boys because they won’t know any different and she’ll have convinced them it is normal. And now it’ll have become their security blanket. I don’t think it’s up to you to speak to the school, but if you get on so well with your sister-in-law, then try talking to her.
Acknowledge that you can’t tell her how to live her life, but stress that you’re worried about her boys being bullied – tell her what happened after the argument with your kids. And be honest that you – and the rest of the family – feel very uncomfortable being around her if she’s going to breastfeed her sons.
I really think your sister-in-law has major problems – she’s looking for any excuse to breastfeed – even her husband. I actually don’t know anyone who wouldn’t find it weird. It really isn’t fair on these boys – I bet they don’t have many mates coming for sleepovers.

Les Miserables: Striking workers on the picket line at their ceramics factory in Saint-Marcellin-en-Forez. They are demanding a French-speaking boss
Wow-Workers at British-owned factory in France on strike because bosses only speak English

THE entire workforce of a British-owned factory in France is taking strike action because managers only speak English.
Around 184 French staff at the insulation firm are staging walk-outs because it is impossible to discuss wage rises and working conditions.
Shop steward Thierry Juvin said bosses could only say “bonjour” before talks broke down.Staff have been downing tools three times a day since the English management took over.France’s CGT union representative Pierrick Dumont said: “I don’t think it’s up to us to make the effort to speak English. We’re French workers based in France. Every meeting is an ordeal. "We have to have someone who translates everything into English and then anything our boss says has to be translated into French. This makes dialogue extremely slow, if not impossible.”
The former director left Thermal Ceramics, which makes ceramic fibre insulation at Saint-Marcellin-en-Forez near Lyon, in January and an English acting chief who can’t speak French was appointed.

Excellent-Three Naked Women in Tiger Canvas Painting (video)

Craig Tracy worked with three models for 24 hours to create this image of the endangered South China tiger.
He used a template drawn on his studio floor as a guide before he arranged the women and carefully applied paint designed for human skin.
The 43-year-old, from New Orleans, has painted on 400 bodies. He said: ‘All of my models are volunteers. I never use agencies or websites to find them. They find me.'Girlfriends that I have had, have had an understanding of what I do and the professional nature of how I paint and create. So I have never had any issues regarding jealousy - I
simply wouldn't tolerate it if they did.'
From humble beginnings as an airbrush artist in a local shopping mall at the tender age of 16 - Craig has gone on to set up the worlds first art gallery dedicated to body painting.

Lucky-Same Lottery Number Pay off for a lottery winners

It seems that persistence can pay off when playing the lottery — at least in the neighboring states of Maryland and Virginia.
A Virginia man played the right numbers again and again and again on Monday to take home a total of $1 million in the Cash 5 game, NBC Washington reported.
The jackpot prize for picking the correct five numbers in the game is $100,000. A car salesman, who was not identified, bought 10 separate tickets — all with the same correct number — to win the $1 million, the Insidenova Website reported.
The odds of picking five out of five winning numbers in the game just once are 278,256:1.
Coworkers at the dealership where the winner worked said he disappeared after hearing the news. The winning numbers were: 11-13-18-22-28.
Meanwhile, a Maryland woman won $50,000 on a scratch-off ticket for the second time in three months — and she bought both tickets at the same store, WBAL-TV reported. Maryland Lottery officials said the 42-year-old woman won $50,000 last week on a Big Money Mega Play ticket bought at the Triangle Market.

Disguise-Man dressed like 'Mannequin' spies on ladies in toilet


A MAN "dressed like a mannequin" has been caught spying on women using the ladies toilet at a shopping mall.
Student Joel Hardman was wearing a mask and wig at Birmingham’s showpiece Bullring mall when a shopper reported seeing someone "dressed like a mannequin" walk into the loos.He later emerged from a locked cubicle and admitted performing a sex act.
And Birmingham Magistrates’ Court heard Hardman’s phone contained three images of women's feet taken beneath cubicle doors and an audio recording of a flushing toilet.Hardman, 22, of Norfolk Road, Edgbaston, yesterday pleaded guilty to observing another person doing a private act for his own sexual gratification. Jonathan Purser, prosecuting, said Hardman, believed to be an MSc student at the University of Birmingham, told a Bullring security guard: "Yes, I've been a bit weird.

Wow-Yes, men really can make it longer – study

SOME non-surgical methods for increasing the length of the male sex organ do work, while others are likely to result only in soreness and disappointment, a review of medical literature has shown. Surgical procedures, however, could be dangerous and had an "unacceptably high rate of complications," according to the study, published this week in the Journal of the British Association of Urological Surgeons.
"An increasing number of patients seek urological advice for the so-called 'short penis'," the researchers reported.
This is true despite the fact that "penile length is normal in most of these men, who tend to overestimate normal phallic dimension".
A male member - measured on the upper side - can be considered normal in length if it is at least four centimetres when limp, and 7.5 centimetres when rigid, noted several of the studies evaluated.
Some allowances, they added, must be made for a man's height and his body-mass index (BMI), which measured deviation from optimal levels of body fat.To determine the efficacy and safety of surgical and non-surgical techniques for so-called "male enhancement", Marco Orderda and Paolo Gontero of the University of Turin in Italy canvassed scientific literature. They found 10 relevant studies. Half reported on surgical techniques, performed on 121 men. Among the non-invasive methods, tested on 109 subjects, so-called penile extenders which stretched the phallus through traction were shown to be most effective.
One study reported an average increase of 1.8 centimetres, while another measured an extra 2.3 centimetres in a flaccid state, and 1.7 centimetres when erect. But the regimen for achieving these gains was arduous: six hours of daily traction over four months in the first case, and four hours every day over six months in the second.
Another device, known as a "penis pump," used a manual or motorised pump to create a vacuum inside a hard cylinder sheath, stretching the phallus.
Six months of treatment, however, "was not found to be effective for penile elongation, although it provided some sort of psychological satisfaction for some men", the researchers said.
So-called peno-scrotal rings - expandable or rigid bands which fitted around the base of the scrotum and penis - "might help to augment penile size and maintain erections in men suffering from anxiety", they reported, but only two cases were evaluated.
Advertisements claiming another popular technique - so-called "penile lengthening exercises" - could add centimetres to one's manhood were unfounded, say Oderda and Gontero.

Weird-Depressed man cooked, ate own finger

A New Zealand man struggling with depression cut off his own finger, cooked it with vegetables and ate it, doctors reported in the latest issue of medical journal Australasian Psychiatry.It's only the eighth identified case of self-cannibalization, and is particularly rare because of the patient's lack of severe psychosis, the article abstract says.The patient, a 28-year-old man, amputated and ate the finger without any evidence of impaired reality testing or substance abuse. "Mr. X," as he was referred to in the report by forensic psychiatrist Erik Monasterio and clinical psychologist Craig Prince, suffered from bouts of low mood, and sometimes thought of suicide, the New Zealand Herald reported, citing the report.
Once while depressed, he was attacked by two men, and fantasized about killing his assailants and eating them, the report said.

Stupid-Air traffic controller suspended for watching movie on duty

WASHINGTON — an air traffic controller has been suspended for watching a movie when he was supposed to be monitoring aircraft, deepening the Federal Aviation Administration's embarrassment following at least five cases of controllers sleeping on the job.
In the latest incident, the controller was watching a movie on a DVD player early Sunday morning while on duty at a regional radar center in Oberlin, Ohio, near Cleveland that handles high-altitude air traffic, the FAA said in a statement Monday.
The controller's microphone was inadvertently activated, transmitting the audio of the movie — the 2007 crime thriller "Cleaner," starring Samuel L. Jackson — for more than three minutes to all the planes in the airspace that the controller was supposed to be monitoring, the agency said.
The controller's microphone became stuck in the transmit position, preventing him from hearing incoming radio calls or issuing instructions to planes during the incident, the agency said.

Good-#@*! Swearing really is a powerful painkiller, study shows

Next time you stub your toe, go ahead and let those four-letter words fly. Cursing actually does help dull our perception of pain, research suggests.In the study, researchers from the UK's Keele University asked participants for five words they'd likely use after hitting their thumb with a hammer; the first word listed would be their go-to profanity during the experiment. (They were also asked to list five boring words -- ones they'd use to describe a table.).
Participants were then instructed to submerge their unclenched hand in a container of 41-degree water, and keep it there -- while repeatedly cursing -- for as long as they could. Before and after plunging their hands into the chilly water, their heart rate was recorded. And after they could no longer stand the cold temperature, they were asked to rate the amount of pain they were in, too.What's surprising is that the researchers had thought that swearing would make the cold water feel much colder, lowering the participants' tolerance for pain and heightening their perception of it.
