Angry ex-girlfriend goes ballistic, rips off man’s scrotum
Talk about a ball buster.
An Indiana man was rushed to the hospital Wednesday after his scrotum was the victim of a vicious attack by an ex-girlfriend, The Smoking Gun reports.
The victim told police that his former girlfriend, Christina Reber, stormed into his apartment as he was innocently sitting at his computer. Reber, who he had severed ties with a few days earlier, first struck him on the head and then grabbed his scrotum and began “squeezing as hard as she could.” Naturally, he told officers that he “was in incredible pain when [she] grabbed his scrotum and began digging in her fingers.”
The police report indicates that the scrotum area was “completely torn loose from his body.” Reber reportedly “refused to let go of his scrotum,” but that the victim was finally able to remove his balls from her vice-like grip.
As if the story isn’t already good enough, the victim, who has not been identified, was taken to BALL MEMORIAL HOSPITAL. As far as we know, the hospital is not only for scrotum-specific injuries.
In an interview two days after the incident, the man told police that after his ex was done breaking his balls, his family jewels are so swollen that he is unable to work, and he isn’t sure if there will be permanent damage.
Reber was charged with two felonies: aggravated battery and illegally entering the victim’s home. She was also charged with a misdemeanor domestic battery.
Men arrested after deputy finds calf in backseat
CARLSBAD, N.M. — New Mexico authorities have arrested three men found with a 220-pound calf in the backseat of their car.
The Carlsbad Current Argus reports that the men are accused of cattle rustling. They were jailed on charges of suspicion of larceny of livestock, conspiracy, lack of a bill of sale and exporting livestock.
Luna County sheriff's office says a deputy pulled over their Honda Civic on Friday and saw the animal sharing the backseat with one of the alleged thieves.
The three are being held at the Luna County Detention Center.
Scientific Study; Does a bear shit in the woods?
Tuesday, 13 March 2012
From the same scientist that gave us the study "Is a frog's ass water tight?" We have a new study of a common American cliché, Does a bear shit in the woods?
"My dad was always making these comments that made me wonder if there was any truth to their origins. I am pretty sure that most of them were his way of asking me, what do you think, dumb ass? But I can't help wondering where they came from."
After receiving a government grant from the Dept. of Poo Studies, our scientist began his extensive interviews with local bears.

Dentist accused of paper clip use in root canals
NEW BEDFORD, Massachusetts (AP) — A former dentist in the U.S. has pleaded guilty to fraud for using paper clips instead of stainless steel posts in root canals.
Michael Clair will be sentenced next Monday after pleading guilty last week in a Massachusetts court to a variety of charges, including defrauding a government health program of $130,000, assault and battery, illegally prescribing prescription drugs and witness intimidation.
Authorities say instead of stainless steel posts for root canals, he used sections of paper clips — which can cause pain and even infection — in an effort to save money.
Attorney General Martha Coakley says paper clips can sometimes be used temporarily, but the 53-year-old Clair used the paper clips as a permanent fix.
Urinating cat, not fire, caused smoke in Pa. home
NEW CASTLE, Pa. — One western Pennsylvania fire department learned that there's not necessarily fire wherever there's smoke.
New Castle's assistant fire chief Jim Donston tells The Associated Press that firefighters were called when an electrical outlet on a floor was smoking, only to find that happened because the family's cat urinated into the outlet.
The New Castle News (http://bit.ly/zHd1RS ) first reported the incident Friday and Donston supplied more details to the AP.
The assistant chief says a Columbia Gas worker was at the house checking for a possible leak when he noticed the smoking outlet and called the fire department Wednesday about 7:30 p.m.
Donston says firefighters "found the receptacle wet from cat urine" and shut off the electrical supply to that circuit.
Ill. man didn't know he'd shot nail into his brain
ORLAND PARK, Ill. — A suburban Chicago man thought the errant nail that discharged from the gun he was working with had whizzed by his head. Instead, it was lodged in his brain.
Family members say Dante Autullo spent more than a day with the 3½-inch nail in his head before having it removed Thursday.
The 32-year-old was tinkering in the garage of his Orland Park home Tuesday when then the nail gun went off. He saw a small wound but couldn't find the nail and didn't think much of it.
He went to work the next day but later went to the hospital with nausea and one monster of a headache.
That's when an X-ray uncovered the nail.
Autullo is recovering after a four-hour surgery to have the nail removed.
Police: Pa. man fakes mom's obit to get time off
BROOKVILLE, Pa. (AP) -- Authorities in northwestern Pennsylvania say a man published an obituary for his living mother in a ploy to get paid bereavement time off from work.
Relatives called The Jeffersonian Democrat newspaper in Brookville after the obit appeared to report the woman was actually alive and well. The woman herself then visited the paper.
Brookville police charged 45-year-old Scott Bennett on Tuesday with disorderly conduct.
Democrat editor Randy Bartley says he accepted the obituary in good faith after being unable to confirm the funeral arrangements at press time. He told The Derrick newspaper (http://bit.ly/vDDqLi ) on Friday that the woman was very understanding.
Police Chief Ken Dworek says Bennett wrote up the memorial notice because he didn't want to get fired for taking time off.
The Associated Press couldn't reach Bennett.
Dog steps on gun, shoots Utah hunter in buttocks
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A Utah bird hunter was shot in the buttocks after his dog stepped on a shotgun laid across the bow of a boat.
Box Elder County Sheriff's Deputy Kevin Potter says the 46-year-old Brigham City man was duck hunting with a friend when he climbed out of the boat to move decoys.
Potter says the man left his 12-gauge shotgun in the boat and the dog stepped on it, causing it to fire. It wasn't clear whether the safety on the gun was on at the time.
Potter says the man was hit from about 10 feet away with 27 pellets of birdshot. He says the man wasn't seriously injured, in part because he was wearing waders. The man was treated at a nearby hospital.

Police: Man impersonating cop pulls over real cop
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Police say a New Mexico man pretending to be police officer pulled over a real Albuquerque Police Department detective and is facing charges.
KOB-TV reports that Tyree Appleberry was given the citation Wednesday on charges of impersonating a police officer then arrested for an outstanding warrant.
According to police, the 42-year-old turned on his strobe lights on his white Chevy Tahoe in an attempt to stop a driver, who turned out to be an undercover officer.
But Appleberry said he was not impersonating an officer and was instead asking the driver why he was in the parking lot next to an auto auction yard where his friend works.
Authorities say Appleberry had a warrant out for his arrest for failing to appear in court for a reckless driving charge.
Mail Harassment Victim has 150 Pounds of Unsolicited Mail
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A Jacksonville woman said she is a victim of mail harassment and has 150 pounds of unsolicited mail to show for it.
Dana Kraus has received mail just about every day since January, including about 70 magazine subscriptions, various catalogues and tourist information pamphlets, none of which she requested.
"It's a nightmare," said Kraus, who claims a neighbor is responsible. "It's very sad that someone would go to this length to harass somebody."
Kraus spent hours on the phone canceling subscriptions, and getting copies of subscription insert cards sent to the magazines in her name, she said. She was billed around $1,000 for magazines ordered in her name, her father's name and her son's name.
"The handwriting is the same on all of them. Also, my email address is wrong, the server is wrong, and on the address, the "g" is the same on every single one," said Kraus.
She got an injunction against her neighbor Randall Green after a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office investigation uncovered a recording of a call he made to a hair restoration company, ordering materials in her name.
"He's not going to stop until it hurts him in his pocket or he's put in jail." She said she is still getting unsolicited mail, but can't prove her neighbor is responsible so he can't be cited for violating an injunction.
Green said by phone that he was not responsible for any of the mail. He admitted making the hair restoration call as a joke, but said he has done nothing to violate the injunction since it was issued.
Green claims he has gotten unsolicited mail at his home that Kraus is responsible for.
According to a Postal Service spokesman, Kraus should call the Postal Inspection Service if she feels threatened by the mail and an investigation will be conducted.
Kraus said JSO told her they could not arrest anyone for having the mail sent to her home since she was not hurt financially.
Dutch woman calls ex-boyfriend 65,000 times
AMSTERDAM — Dutch prosecutors are charging a 42-year-old woman with stalking after she allegedly called her ex-boyfriend 65,000 times in the past year.
The 62-year-old victim from The Hague filed a police complaint in August due to the persistent phone calls. Police arrested the suspected stalker Monday, seizing several cell phones and computers from her home in Rotterdam.
Hague prosecution spokeswoman Nicolette Stoel said Thursday the woman argued to judges at a preliminary hearing she had a relationship with the man and the number of calls she placed to him wasn't excessive. The man denied they had a relationship.
The court ordered her not to contact him again.
Cops: Pa. woman let niece, 6, drive from snug spot
BEAVER, Pa. (AP) -- Police say a Pennsylvania woman endangered her 6-year-old niece by having the girl back the woman's car out of a tight parking spot, wrecking two other cars in the process.
Fifty-five-year-old Rebecca Beatty, of Aliquippa (al-uh-KWIH'-puh), and her attorney have not returned calls on the charges she waived to Beaver County Court on Tuesday.
Police charged Beatty in June after she picked up her niece from a dance program at Ambridge Area High School.
The Beaver County Times reports Wednesday that Beatty found another car parked so close that she couldn't get in her vehicle. Police say that's when she had her niece back the car out.
Police say the child hit a parked car, pushing it over a curb until it hit another car parked on the street.

Man shoots self in genitals while holstering gun in pants
CHANDLER, Ariz. — A suburban Phoenix man is recovering after police say he accidentally shot himself in the penis while putting his girlfriend's gun in the waistband of his pants.
Chandler police say 27-year-old Joshua Seto and his fiancée, Cara Christopher, were walking toward a grocery store when the shooting happened last week. The gun fired, striking Seto's penis and continuing through his left thigh.
The Arizona Republic reports a 911 operator told Christopher to apply direct pressure to the wound with a dry towel or T-shirt.
Chandler Police Detective Seth Tyler was unsure of the type of gun, or whether it had a safety that was off. He also says it's unclear if Seto has been released from the hospital or suffered any permanent damage
In the wake of the shooting, Tyler warned residents to use holsters, not waistbands, if they're going to carry a handgun.

Hacked Hardware Has Been Sold in the U.S.
Hacked Hardware Has Been Sold in the U.S.
By Michael Moyer | Jul 11, 2011 03:05 PM
Last week, an official at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) told a congressional panel that hardware sold in the U.S. has been compromised by foreign agents. According to a report at Fast Company:
When asked by Rep. [Jason] Chaffetz [R-UT] whether [acting deputy undersecretary of the DHS National Protection and Programs Directorate Greg] Schaffer was aware of any foreign-manufactured software or hardware components that had been purposely embedded with security risks, the DHS representative stated that “I am aware of instances where that has happened,” after some hesitation.
In other words, hardware manufactured abroad has been embedded with malicious code, a problem described last year in Scientific American by John Villasenor, a professor of electrical engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles. The design of modern integrated circuits has become so complex, says Villasenor, that malicious agents could insert unwanted instructions into the circuits at some point in the process. “Given the sheer number of people and complexity involved in a large integrated-circuit design, there is always a risk that an unauthorized outsider might gain access and corrupt the design without detection,” Villasenor writes.
What’s at stake here? Villasenor uses the example of a cell-phone circuit that’s programmed to shut down millions of phones at a certain predetermined time. But this is an innocuous example. Villasenor writes:
The difficulty of fixing a systemic, malicious hardware problem keeps cybersecurity experts up at night. Anything that uses a microprocessor—which is to say, just about everything electronic—is vulnerable. Integrated circuits lie at the heart of our communications systems and the world’s electricity supply. They position the flaps on modern airliners and modulate the power in your car’s antilock braking system. They are used to access bank vaults and ATMs and to run the stock market. They form the core of almost every critical system in use by our armed forces. A well-designed attack could conceivably bring commerce to a halt or immobilize critical parts of our military or government.
What can be done? Villasenor advocates for circuits that are designed to police themselves, searching for abnormal activity in their sub-units and taking protective action if any is found. This would sacrifice a bit of performance, but protect the circuit as a whole.
(NaturalNews) What would all the world's experts and authorities say today if the Titanic were sinking but nobody was willing to admit it? The U.S. economy, after all, is sinking and taking on an unprecedented volume of water (i.e. debt), yet virtually no one is willing to admit the obvious fact that this ship is sinking. And much like with the Titanic, most "experts" continue to claim the U.S. economy is unsinkable, despite the obvious evidence that we might want to start heading for the life rafts.
So in the spirit of comedy -- which is, after all, what we are witnessing in Washington these days -- imagine The Titanic hitting an iceberg in 2011, followed by a string of experts all trying to spin the story their own way. Here's what they might say:
The White House Press Secretary: The iceberg was placed in the Atlantic ocean by Osama Bin Laden.
The chemist: That's not an iceberg. It's merely solid-state di-hydrogen oxide.
Al Gore: That iceberg wouldn't have even been there if the polar caps weren't melting.
The Congressman: Quick, let's pass a new law that says ships shall not sink.
President Obama: The Titanic isn't sinking. It's merely engaged in "aquatic action."
Former President Bush: Icebergs are weapons of mass destruction planted in the ocean by terrorists. We must avenge the iceberg terrorists!
The Pentagon: We will equalize the hole in one side of the ship by blowing a matching hole in the other side.
The TSA inspector: You're not allowed onto a lifeboat until we check your anus for explosives.
The Cancer Doctor: We can't fix the hole in the ship, but through the miracle of chemotherapy, we can make you suffer so much that you won't care.
The Wall Street investment banker: Don't worry, the Fed will bail out all the water we're taking on. The Titanic is too big to fail.
The teenage girl: Can I still text on my iPhone under water?
Congressman Weiner: Yes you can, and by the way, here's a very special "going away" message for you to remember me by.
Average Joe: Is the ship's buffet still open?
The FDA: We believe the ship is sinking because of an e.coli infection that spread from the galley.
The CDC: Everybody should get vaccinated before the ship sinks, just in case there's a shark-flu virus in the water.
The New Ager: There is no hole in the ship unless you believe there is a hole in the ship.
The Academic: I have published a paper that proves this ship is unsinkable. Would anyone like to read it? Please?
The Catholic priest: I think we should save all the children first. Which lifeboat are they on again?
The Journalist: The Titanic has a hole in its side, but official sources tell us it's only "aquatic action" and there's no cause for alarm. And we believe them.
The Federal Reserve: We have decided to dump more water onto the ship in the hope of making it float.
The Federal Government: Hey, these deck chairs look pretty nice. Let's rearrange them!
The Doctor: We need to order a couple dozen CT scans of the ship's null and bill them to Medicare before we have any idea at all what to do.
The Denialist: Stop talking about negative things. Stay focused on the positive and you won't need a life vest.
The Realist: This ship is going down, folks. You might want to think about taking action to keep yourself alive.
The Gullible Masses: Don't worry, this ship is unsinkable.
Even if it did sink, there are plenty of lifeboats.
Even if there aren't enough lifeboats, we all have life jackets.
Even if we don't have enough life jackets, the government will come save us.

Police say US man hid in portable toilet tank
BOULDER, Colorado — Police in Colorado say a woman who stepped inside a portable toilet at a yoga festival discovered a man hiding in the tank below when she lifted the toilet lid.
Boulder police spokeswoman Kim Kobel says the woman told authorities she noticed something moving inside the tank and asked a man to check it out. The man reported seeing someone covered in a tarp inside the tank.
A festival security supervisor said the suspect eventually emerged from the toilet — covered in human waste — and slipped away.
Police say the suspect is thought to be in his 20s and is being sought on charges of criminal attempt to make unlawful sexual contact.
