A Florida man was strolling on the beach this morning when a giant Lego man washed ashore. So yeah, that happened. The 8-foot-tall toy, who goes by the name Ego Leonard, has been doing a lot of traveling lately as he’s washed up on beaches in Holland and England as well. The  message on his shirt says “No real than you are.” According to Ego’s website (yes, he has a website), he “comes from the virtual world,” which represents “happiness, solidarity, all green and blossoming, with no rules or limitations.” Clearly, he has lessons to teach us, but it appears that English is his second language. Perhaps he should take grammar lessons from Courtney Stodden. [Boing Boing]

Dallas Rapist Targeting Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Girls

A serial rapist in Dallas is apparently targeting alumnae of the Delta Sigma Theta sorority, a Dallas newspaper reports. Over the past eleven months, four black women in their 50s and 60s who are alumnae of DST in the Dallas area have been victims of home invasions between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m. All were raped by seemingly the same suspect. Each woman said the rapist seemed to know personal information about them, which might suggest he’s targeting them through some kind of affiliation they all have. As such, the Plano, Texas, police department is warning DST alumnae (a predominantly black sorority) that arapist is afoot.

Herman Cain: Presidential Hopeful And … Numerologist?

Watch Video

My personal political beliefs tend to be on the very liberal end of the spectrum, so perhaps I am not the best judge of Herman Cain’s popularity as the favorite candidate for the Republican nomination for President. But political differences aside, the Georgia native and former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza seems genuinely, legitimately, and proudly uninformed about a host of issues. One thing he is well-versed in, however? Numerology. Yes, numerology, i.e. the study of the “mystical” power of numbers. On last night’s “Rachel Maddow Show,” following a segment about how former President Ronald Reagan organized his schedule based on the advice of Nancy Reagan’s astrologist (to the chagrin of his Chief of Staff), Maddow revealed that Cain believes the number 45 “is magic.” Say what?

A 21-year-old California man made a $100 wager with his friends that he could fit in a kiddie swing at a local playground. Oh, what a man won’t do to impress his friends to stay young forever. After slathering himself with laundry detergent and maneuvering his legs in the tiny swing holes, the man was unable to free himself. So what did his really cool friends do? Oh,they left him there to swing alone, all night long. Nine hours later, he was discovered by the park’s groundskeeper, crying like a baby, his legs swollen from lack of circulation. He was so thoroughly stuck in the swing that firefighters had to cut the chains and take him to the hospital still in the diaper-like apparatus. It can be hard to accept that childhood is over.

Today’s Lady News: Crisis Pregnancy Centers Tell Jewish Woman To Convert

Today's Lady News
  • A new report on so-called “crisis pregnancy centers,” which masquerade as women’s health clinics but are really focused on dissuading women from having abortions, found that “one Jewish investigator who posed as a pregnant woman was told at five centers she wouldn’t go to heaven unless she converted to Christianity and that one volunteer challenged her to become a ‘born-again virgin.’”  And these groups get our tax dollars! It’s the bestest! [Think Progress, Pro-Choice NC]
  • Wannabe GOP presidential contender Herman Cain bragged that he would sign an anti-abortion constitutional amendment into law. Too bad for him that presidents don’t sign amendments to the Constitution. It would probably behoove someone who is running for president to have a basic understanding of how government works, don’t you think? [Politico]
  • Los Angeles County will be reaching out to lesbians and gays to be adoptive and foster parents during November, which is National Adoption Month. [San Francisco Gate

Something new to be afraid of — or aspire to? A 28-year-old woman in India went to her doctor complaining about an uncontrollable sex drive and died four days later of rabies. From a puppy bite. Yes, puppies can kill you. Rabies, which causes an inflammation of the brain, can trigger hypersexuality shortly before death, according to the UK’s Daily Mail. (Admittedly, the Mail probably shouldn’t be anyone’s first source for medical advice.) The unnamed woman’s puppy bite went untreated for two months, despite the fact that bites from animals should be treated within 24 hours. Unless you want to be in a state of constant arousal for four days, that is. [Daily Mail UK]
