Dowton Abbey Sex Lessons
Sex lessons we learned from watching "Downton Abbey." Read More »

Attention those of you who have always dreamed of owning your very own village in France. For the reasonable price of $369,930 the entire village of Courbefy, located in the region of Limousin, can be yours. The Credit Agricole bank had to repossess Courbefy after a downturn in the farming industry led to its decline and eventual bankruptcy. Your new village would come complete with 200 people, 19 buildings, a swimming pool, horse stables and a tennis court. Surely there’s some celebrity out there whose ego would be fed  by this sort of thing. Or some rich person. Or some not rich person who wants to live a more “Downton Abbey” lifestyle. Who wants to lend me a few bucks?  [Newslite]

Kerry Trebilcock Has Eaten 4,000 Sponges And 100 Bars Of Soap

Dental nurse Kerry Trebilcock has eaten 4,000 sponges and over 100 bars of soap, but it hasn’t been in the name of oral hygiene.

The Sun reported that Trebilcock, 21, suffers from pica, a rare disorder that causes sufferers to crave non-food items. In Trebilcock’s case, this means washing sponges and organic soap. She told the Sun that she began to have these bizarre cravings in 2008, after contracting hookworm in Morocco. “I didn’t want to tell anyone as I felt like a freak,” she said. “But after a week I’d eaten nine sponges and over a pound of organic soap.” Read more 

Hank For Senate: Cat Runs For Office In Virginia

The race for a Senate seat from Virginia may evolve into a cat fight now that one Springfield resident has tossed his collar into the ring.

Hank may not be the typical political animal: he has spent time on the streets; he’s never voted; and he really doesn’t seem to like wearing clothes to do his best work.

That’s right, former Virginia Govs. George Allen (R) and Tim Kaine (D) now face a feline foe. Hank’s a former street cat and political independent who advocates a job creation platform and “milk in every bowl.”According to his Twitter account, Hank is also passionate about the creation of a Privacy Bill of Rights and the protection of consumer data.

Erin Brown Faces 30 Years In Prison For Giving Drunk Boyfriend The Keys

If someone’s been drinking, you usually take away their car keys, not give them yours. Erin Brown did just that and now the resident of Hermitage, Tenn., faces 30 years in prison.

Back in December, Brown, 21, gave her car keys to her boyfriend, 23-year-old Trevor Bradshaw, thinking he was sober enough to drive. Bradshaw wasn’t and, as a result, he struck two pedestrians — Michael Brooksher, 22, and Tommy Allen, 23 — both of whom died, according to the Tennessean.

Bradshaw was charged with vehicular homicide and assault, and, if convicted, could serve a 30-year sentence. In an unusual twist, however, Brown faces the same charges as her boyfriend, even though she had just been a passenger during the accident. Read more…
