Man Kills Stepdaughter For Crying During World Cup

I know most of us have been enjoying the World Cup with an appropriate amount of fervor, but then one psycho has to go and ruin it for the rest of us. A 27-year-old Texas man named Hector Castro has been accused of beating his 2-year-old stepdaughter to death because she wouldn’t stop crying while he was trying to watch the World Cup. It gets worse. He allegedly tried to shove a bolt down her throat to make it look like she had choked to death. The lunatic has been charged with murder and is being held on $1 million bail. I hope he gets his to the fullest extent of the law. What a tragedy. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

5 People Who’ve Lost Their Jobs Over Sexy Pics

New sexy photos have popped up of Arkansas corrections officer Jessie Lunderby (left), who was suspended earlier this month by the Washington Country Sheriff’s Department after being named Playboy‘s Cyber Girl of the Week. Lunderby wasn’t sure whether she’d get her job back, but says she’s gotten plenty of other job offers, “from posing nude in adult magazines to starring in X-rated movies.” But also “more regular jobs like working as a secretary, or in bars.” Is it messed up for me to say that she was probably too attractive to work as a corrections officer in the first place?

In Jessie’s honor, we’ve rounded up a few others fired for their sexy pics. Keep reading »

No Sex Allowed In Outer Space

I just assumed that the whole point of becoming an astronaut and taking the long ride out to the final frontier was for the glory of experiencing zero-gravity sex, even if those pesky space suits do seem a little restrictive. But apparently space sex is against the rules of astro-conduct. Space Shuttle commander Alan Poindexter, who just returned with his six-person, coed crew from a two week mission to the International Space Station, was offended by the very thought of getting busy in the great beyond. When asked what would happen if his crew did it in space, he said, “We are a group of professionals … we treat each other with respect and we have a great working relationship. Personal relationships are not an issue. We don’t have them and we won’t.” Somebody’s a party pooper. I’m officially crossing astronaut off the list of things I want to be when I grow up.
