A man reportedly broke into his ex-girlfriend’s home and stole the sex toys he had bought for her birthday present when they were together. After making off with the lingerie, gauntlets, shackles, and whip, Paul Ashcroft is said to have sent Claire Bainbridge a text message telling her to check her drawers. She discovered that the items were missing, and two days later they were recovered in Ashcroft’s residence. The judge sentenced him to a two-year conditional discharge, in addition to paying court costs. “This was pretty disgraceful behavior,” the judge said. “There is no excuse for doing what you did in stealing those items. I trust that the relationship has now come to an end. I have been told…each of you now has a fresh relationship. I suggest you concentrate on that.” [News Guardian, U.K.] Keep reading »
Internet bullying isn’t just for kids anymore, grown-ups are responsible for the growing trend of online torture.

Women can be a little crazy after a breakup — hello, Heather Mills! But men have the ability to go equally nuts. An Australia man is auctioning off his life on eBay — house, car, job, clothes, and friends — because he wants to start over. He says that his ex-wife heard about his idea: “Her last comment was, ‘It seems a bit mental to me.’” The auction starts June 22. [Reuters and A Life 4 Sale] Keep reading »
Sure, a lot of guys claim their ex-girlfriends are crazy, but in this case, the guy isnâ€™t “ex”-aggerating. April Wormly, 36, was too much of a wuss to drop the breakup bomb on her boyfriend face-to-face (or even via Wikipedia). So when he headed to the airport in San Antonio to depart on a trip, Wormly called in not one, not two, but a whopping 36 fake terrorist threats on his flight. Needless to say, with understandably uptight Homeland Security officers searching babies and throwing out water bottles, they took the phone calls seriously and evacuated the 120 passengers on the Southwest flight. Wormly hoped that when her man found out she had made all the calls, he would do the dirty work and dump her. But in court this week, the real bomb got dropped on Wormly, who certainly was broken up when she was sentenced to two years in prison and a $19,761 fine for her idiotic scheme. [MSNBC via Fark]
