When I was a 10-year-old, the worst thing a boy did to me was put Scotch tape in my hair. If only! Proof that society is going down the toilet: two fifth grade boys in Colville, Washington, have first-degree murder conspiracy charges against them for plotting to rape and kill their female classmate. They were discovered on February 7 after a child saw one of the boys playing with a knife on the school bus; in a backpack, the kids had a .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol (stolen from a family member) and ammunition. One of the boys explained, “She’s rude and always made fun of me and my friends.” Keep reading »
Guests at the Pantai Inn in La Jolla, California, had an unexpected visitor earlier this week, when a sea lion pup wandered up off the beach and took up residence in one of the resort’s outdoor pool chairs. The lion lounged about for a while, before handlers from the local SeaWorld showed up to humanely remove the animal. According to the surveillance video, the sea lion went on quite an adventure. She traveled from the ocean, up a flight of stairs, crossed a major road and then meandered into the hotel courtyard.
The lady lion was taken to Sea World’s Animal Care Complex before eventually being released back into the wild. As adorable as an unexpected sea lion visit might be, it’s also a troubling indication of habitat destruction and over-development. According to reports, more than 200 local wild animals have popped up in unlikely places since the beginning of this year — up from last year’s numbers. [Huffington Post]
Oh Tatsujiro Fukasawa, you do know a woman’s weakness, don’t you? Fukasawa, 40, attempted to kill a female colleague he’d been stalking by pouring hydrofluoric acid into her shoes. Hydrofluoric acid acid can be absorbed via the skin and cause everything from skin abrasions to internal organ failure. The woman realized something was wrong when she developed gangrene on her left foot. It’s not known how much permanent damage the acid has caused.
For his part, Fukasawa denies the charges. Police are also investigating what they believe may be a related case: the same woman said she was forced to go to the hospital this past October after experiencing pain while wearing a pair of boots. [Japan Times]
Dear Veniamin Balika,
Let me preface this love letter by saying that I understand that stealing is wrong and don’t condone it. But I can’t help but be impressed by a man who can pull off a cheese heist of unprecedented proportions. I find cheese thievery sexy for obvious reasons.
Veniamin — or should I call you Cheese King? — you have my respect for managing to make off with 42,000 pounds of Muenster cheese from a Wisconsin distribution plant. That’s enough cheese to fill an 18-wheel truck. That’s roughly $200,000 worth of cheese, which you planned to sell on the black market. I had no idea the black cheese market was so lucrative. I had no idea there was a black cheese market. I knew about the underground chicken wing market. But not cheese.This is all blowing my mind. So much fucking cheese! Enough cheese to fulfill all my dairy cravings for the rest of my life! Enough cheese to build a cheese house and live there together like two happy mice. I know, I’m getting ahead of myself.

And you thought you had a rough day at the office: a prostitute in Zimbabwe passed out during sex with her john. As she was being placed inside a coffin, she suddenly woke up and began screaming, “You want to kill me!”, thus freaking everyone the f**k out. The woman, identified as MaNdlo, reportedly collapsed and “died” on the job at the Manor Hotel in Bulowayo, Zimbabwe. Authorities wasted no time putting MaNdlo inside a steel coffin, as they assumed her cold body mean she was dead. Nope! “It was like a movie,” The Huffington Post quoted a source ”People were running away in different directions. It was a scary incident because we were all convinced that she had died because she was just cold. Miracles surely do happen.” Or maybe people just need to learn how to take a pulse.

Good morning! Have you had your coffee yet? Great! Because you’ll need something in your system to help you digest these glorious photos of Brazilian “model” Sabrina Boing Boing breastfeeding a calf. Ms. Boing Boing, whose chief talent appears to be hiring herself out as a Pamela Anderson impersonator, posted the photos on Instagram, with the caption (translated from the Brazilian) “some things don’t need to make sense, just worth it!” Yes, just worth it.
This isn’t Boing Boing’s first erotic foray to the petting zoo. Last week, she posted topless photos of herself about to feed an ostrich, too. (Picture of that after the jump) Somebody get this woman a TV show. [Huffington Post]
