11 Things That Prove YouTube Is An Evil Hellscape Of Content That's Hurting Children

11 Things That Prove YouTube Is An Evil Hellscape Of Content That's Hurting Children

When YouTube launched in 2005, it was an exciting time for the still-wild west of the internet, and the platform created easy access for creative types and video makers on the forefront of what is now a multimillion dollar industry. But as great as YouTube is, there is always a dark side to platforms that have very little restriction and a whole lot of access. Very specific controversies surrounding some of YouTube's biggest stars like Logan Paul and PewDiePie have proven this. From questionable advertising policies, to users taking advantage of exploitative rules, to the whole Logan Paul debacle, and beyond — the waters are muddy in the world of YouTube. Who are most at risk? Children. Who uses the internet the most? Children.

YouTube has created an entirely new frontier of worry for parents around the globe, but it's a worry that perhaps isn't being taken seriously enough. It's easy to laugh off the conspiracies of exploiting children on the deep web, but you don't have to search too hard to literally find anything on YouTube.

The YouTube community guidelines talk about how strict the site is with sexually explicit, dangerous and hateful content, but how is that being monitored when 400 hours of content are uploaded every minute? Sure, 100% accuracy is hard to come by, but the worst things about YouTube are very worrying. YouTube has said it will a tougher stance against offensive content and exploitation of children, but is it too late?

13 People Share Their High School Reunion Horror Stories

13 People Share Their High School Reunion Horror Stories

There's a reason like, 90% of people never show up to these things.

1. feralturtles -- You can just feel the cringe.

Someone made a speech along the lines of, "...to all of those that felt picked on or bullied, I have something to say to you." She then started to sing"Let it go" from Frozen.

 

2. CynicalChild -- The more people, the less you can just be a fly on the wall.

Nothing. And by nothing, I mean the awkward feeling at being one of the twelve who showed up.

3. Gonzostewie -- Ha, shitty.

I play in a band. We got booked by a restaurant "for some class reunion". I show up to set up for the gig & it's my fucking class. I wasn't even invited.

4. smanbot -- Wait, teachers go to these things too?

When my lady teacher came up to me, kissed me on the cheek and told me she loved me. She was very drunk. I felt very awkward.

Edit: no she wasn't hot. She was old, once spell corrected a Christmas card I gave her. And the night of the formal, smelt strongly of booze.

5. jacksake1 -- The ultimate revenge.

Not me but my BIL's highschool reunion. A guy that was severely bullied in highschool started a Facebook group to get the ball rolling on planning a highschool reunion, he planned the venue, food, drinks and asked everyone pay a ticket price to cover it all.

He organised the money go into a provided bank account, received 200+ peoples HS reunion dollarydoos and fucked off. Never to be heard of again.

Ive never laughed so hard in my life.

 

6. weedful_things -- Stalkers always ruin all the fun.

I went to my wife's last reunion a few months ago. The day of the reunion she got a call that it was cancelled. Apparently, five years earlier a classmate got creepy and stalkery with another classmate. The people organizing the reunion invited him not to show up. Then the guy posted on facebook some vague threats. They did actually change the venue and have the reunion, but there were many people that couldn't be contacted with the updated info.

7. JustaReverseFridge -- Unwanted kisses usually don't turn out well.

My friend said her cousin's high school reunion was really awkward because this guy ran up and kissed his high school girlfriend without her asking and then got in a fist fight with her husband, did not turn out well from what I hear.

8. honey579badger -- Oh no. 30 years later and showing up in their prom dress. Red flag alert.

When i was like 6 i went to my dad small town 30(?) yr reunion. His ex fiancé (not my mom) was dressed in her prom dress. And kept talking to me saying she should have been my mommy. Even then i knew that was weird. Keep your crazy in lady

9. Food-Oh_Koon -- "Ms. Oldass, will you marry me!"

Proposal to an 70+ aged teacher

EDIT: He had a crush on the teacher a long time back.He knew that her husband divorced her while we were in college.So, he took the chance.Apparently, the teacher was not so happy about it.

10. Gooftrooptrue -- I dunno, sounds kinda fun.

I heard that a classmate set the venue on fire. Glad I didn't go.

11. FROCKbFINE -- The beautiful cheerleader twins, still doin' their thing.

Oh, MY time to shine! The beautiful cheerleader twins got SO wasted at our 20th reunion one of them puked on the table and the other got so drunk she fell out of the photo booth. Their daughters had to carry them out.

12. Reapr -- "Oh yeah? Let me see your wallet? Show me your credit cards."

The whole thing was just awkward, people were trying to show how much more 'successful' they are than everybody else, some even going so far as asking people what their salaries were.

I skipped out early and never went to the following ones.

13. averagejanecitizen -- And now she's dead to you.

My 25 year reunion was last year. They did all the planning via a Facebook group. I did not join the group but could see the activity.

I was scrolling through and a few months prior they had done a memorial post where they listed all the dead classmates.

Someone I haven't seen or spoken to in 25 years (and didn't know well anyway) ... reported me as dead.

The kicker: someone I was friends with on Facebook liked the post. I unfriended her.

Indian Man Busted Having 'Unnatural Sex' With Three Cows

Indian Man Busted Having 'Unnatural Sex' With Three Cows

I mean, is there any other kind?

According to Metro, a sick fuck in Vadodara, India was arrested earlier this week after he allegedly humped three cows, leaving one of them dead on the floor after he was finished with it.

Police said the cows’ owner, Lalji Rabari, brought one of his workers to the cop shop after discovering that somebody had tied three of his cows’ legs together with rope and likely had intercourse with them. The worker is known only as Rathodiya, and Rabari suspected it was him because he was busted plowing a calf two years ago.

How he managed to keep his job after that shit show is anybody’s guess, but not firing him really backfired on Rabari, as one of the three cows was not only a victim of “unnatural sex” but also murder.

Police interviewed Rathodiva at the station, and he actually admitted to taking all three cows to pound town sometime between Sunday night and Monday morning. Police and locals have come to the conclusion that Rathodiva has “psychological problems,” something that easily falls under the “no shit” umbrella.

California Parents Shackled Their 13 Kids, Ages 2 To 29

California Parents Shackled Their 13 Kids, Ages 2 To 29

An ordinary house in a California subdivision concealed a bizarre and disturbing case of torture and child abuse, police say. In a press release, the Riverside County Sheriff's Office says a 17-year-old girl called 911 early Sunday morning after escaping a home in Perris and told police her 12 siblings were being held captive by their parents. Police say that inside the residence, they found several malnourished and dirty children "shackled to their beds with chains and padlocks in dark and foul-smelling surroundings"—and parents David and Louise Turpin were "unable to provide a logical reason" why they were restrained. Investigators initially thought the couple's 13 children were all juveniles, but they were shocked to discover that seven were adults and the oldest was 29.

David Turpin, 57, and Louise Turpin, 49, were arrested on charges of torture and child endangerment and are being held on a $9 million bond each, the Los Angeles Times reports. The 13 victims—the youngest just 2 years old—were hospitalized. Police say they gave them food after they said they were starving. Horrified neighbors tell the Press-Enterprise that they had no idea what was going on. Some didn't even know there were children in the house. A joint Facebook page shows the Turpins, accompanied by their children, renewing their wedding vows in Las Vegas. A 2011 bankruptcy filing seen by CNN states that David Turpin made $140,000 per year working as an engineer at Northrup Grumman. He is listed as principal of the Sandcastle Day School, a private school with just six students, at his Perris address, KTLA reports.


Long Island Man Arrested For Harassing Ex, Posting Her Info On Prostitution Websites

Long Island Man Arrested For Harassing Ex, Posting Her Info On Prostitution Websites

A 23-year-old man named Thomas Traficante was not very happy that he and his girlfriend broke up. So what did this dude do? Well he completely terrorized her and even her sorority — so much so that the police got involved.

It all kicked off when Traficante sent his ex-girlfriend and 12 of her Sigma Kappa sorority sisters a threatening message. “It’s [sic] not safe out there tonight kappas [sic],” the message read. Traficante wasn’t done as he then sent this message the next day:

“Glad [sic] you all mostly took my advice last night, but moving it forward one night doesn’t make kappas [sic] or their dates any safer. I mean no harm, im [sic] not the threat, but harm is coming.”

Traficante even sent a message that read, “I’m in the house.” Police were informed and Traficante was arrested and charged with cyberstalking and threats.

 

But Traficante did a lot more than just send creepy messages. He also sent his ex-girlfriend some cocaine and then alerted campus police at the State University College at Geneseo in hopes of getting her arrested. This creep also posted his ex’s info on a bunch of prostitution websites, and because of that she received dozens of calls from dudes looking for sex.

After he was arrested, the FBI found a semiautomatic AR-15 during a search of his home, and now federal prosecutors will try to make the case in court that Traficante is both dangerous and likely to flee if released on bail.

Russian Climber Found Frozen To Rooftop Edge [Graphic]

Russian Climber Found Frozen To Rooftop Edge [Graphic]

I don’t know why anyone in their right mind would choose to live in Russia but unfortunately some folks don’t have a choice. And because of that they have to deal with a lot of awfulness including the brutal weather. And because of that brutal weather a well known industrial climber has lost his life.

The 26-year-old man named Yevgeny Tikhonov, was spotting frozen and dangling from the roof of a snow-covered student dorm. No word yet as to how exactly this all came about but police believe that Tikhonov did not take his own life. Icicles were even hanging from the poor dude’s feet when he was spotted.

You can take a look at the photo below but just know that some folks might be disturbed by this. Again, some may find this graphic.

Tikhonov was spotted by a young girl and she quickly let adults know. Those folks then reached out to police. Local reports are stating that Tikhonov had been dead for two hours before being spotted. The weather was at-9F that night.

Police are currently investigating the circumstances of Tikhonov’s death.

Hilariously Bad Family Photos Goes Viral, And You'll Quickly See Why

Hilariously Bad Family Photos Goes Viral, And You'll Quickly See Why

If one picture is worth ten thousand words, then one bad photo shoot is worth at least 200,000 social media shares. The Facebook user Pam Dave Zaring quickly went viral when she shared the hilariously bad family photos she got back from her photographer.

"Ok. This is NOT a joke. We paid a photographer, who claimed to be a professional, $2-250 for a family photo shoot. Please see these FOR REAL photos she delivered to us....She said the shadows were really bad on the beautiful, clear, sunny day and that her professor never taught her to retouch photos. Feel free to share. I literally have not laughed this hard in YEARS!!!!! You can't make this stuff up.....again, this is NOT a joke - final product," Zaring shared on Facebook.

The photos make her family look like characters from an Adult Swim show.

It's such a specifically bad photoshop job that it looks almost purposeful and stylistic. Without the backstory, these photos read as a purposeful joke, which of course makes them all the more funny.

What's Really Behind These 14 Scary Urban Legends

What's Really Behind These 14 Scary Urban Legends

Unless you’re a total square, you’ve spent at least one night sitting around with your friends trying to freak each other out with secondhand stories about the guy hiding in the backseat of the girl’s car, or the man in the bunny suit who carries an axe. Urban legends are usually stories that are meant to teach you a lesson while giving you the heebie jeebies - they’re kind of like Aesop’s fables if Aesop were Edward Gorey.

But where do urban legends come from? There are multiple cases of similar stories popping up across the country in the pre-Internet age, so that means they must have a kernel of truth. Maybe. Most of the meanings behind urban legends are very simple: don’t do drugs, don’t have sex in public, and don’t put spiders in your hair. But rather than simply say those things, urban legends say something extreme as a way to hammer home a truth you can apply to your life.

If all urban legends are meant to teach people a lesson, then what do urban legends mean? What are people supposed to take away from stories about alligators stalking the sewers? Don’t buy an exotic pet? Some urban legends stories are rooted in truth, some of them are incredibly scary, and at least one of them is going to keep you from going into your bathroom for a couple of weeks.

10 Serial Killers You've Never Heard Of

10 Serial Killers You've Never Heard Of

 

Everyone has heard of Ted Bundy, Aileen Wuornos, and Jeffrey Dahmer, but they are not the only serial killers in the world or even in the United States. There are hundreds of serial killers you've never even heard of and the reason why is mostly that they are not shocking enough or prolific enough. Many happened before the media became so connected and ingrained in our daily lives. And many others that operate even today cross jurisdictions, state lines, and even country boundaries to commit and conceal their crimes. Allow me to introduce you to just ten serial killers that the general population know little to nothing about. I included photos of those who had them. Unfortunately, not everyone liked their photos taken.

Martha Woods

A military wife who followed her husband around the country from base to base, Martha Woods was a woman inflicted with mental illness known as Munchausen’s Syndrome by Proxy. Woods enjoyed the attention she would get when someone she was close to was seriously ill or died. She enjoyed the attention so much so that she would smother several children which resulted in the death of 7 children.

Martha Woods would always rush her ailing baby to the nearest hospital. The child was always unconscious and had always spent time alone in Woods care. Woods would proclaim that the infant simply stopped breathing for unknown reasons and she was not suspected in any death until her adopted son, Paul, died. Intensive psychiatric testing found her sane and she stood trial for the death of Paul. Woods was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison. Woods’ victims were three of her own children, a nephew, a niece, a neighbors child, and Paul.

Jack the Stripper

Jack the Stripper showed up in England nearly 70 years after Jack the Ripper had ended his spree. Like the Ripper, this Jack killed prostitutes and remains unidentified to this day. However, Jack the Stripper took a total of eight victims and lasted over six years whereas Jack the Ripper had five victims and lasted only ten weeks. Jack the Stripper earned his name from the way he left his corpses stripped of their clothing.

On June 17, 1959, 21-year-old Elizabeth Figg’s body was found in only a slip and floating in the Thames River. Her method of death was strangulation. On November 8, 1963, 22-year-old Gwynneth Rees’ skeletal remains were found near the same river during a brush cleanup project. Her cause of death was not determined due to the condition of the bones. February 2, 1964 brought the discovery of the naked body of 30-year-old Hannah Tailford bobbing in the Thames. On April 9, 1964, 20-year-old Irene Lockwood's body was found naked in the Thames and floating only 300 yards from where they found Tailford’s body. Both women had drowned and it was ascertained that Lockwood was four months pregnant. The first victim found away from the River Thames was 20-year-old Helen Barthelemy. Her nude body was found in a sports field in Brentwood on April 24, 1964. The next to be found away from the river was 21-year-old Mary Fleming on July 14, 1964. She had likely been choked to death and this time the killer took her dentures. On November 25, 1964, Margaret McGowan had been found after missing a month. Jack’s spree ended February 16, 1965 when the nude body of 27-year-old Bridget O’Hara was found in the bushes on the Heron Trading Estate in Acton. The suspects for Jack the Stripper were numerous, but not a single person was ever found to be connected to the murders and the case remains open to this day.

Robert Zarinky

Zarinsky on His Way Into a Court Appearance

New Jersey native Robert Zarinsky had already been convicted of arson and grave desecration after he set fire to a lumberyard and ransacked several Jewish cemeteries in Monmouth and Union Counties. He spent 13 months for these crimes in the Trenton State Psychiatric Hospital. Upon release, he opened a wholesale produce business but his urges to murder would soon arise.

In April 1969, Zarinsky began with the murder of 17-year-old Linda Balbanow. He kidnapped her and her body was dumped into the Raritan River. Next was 16-year-old Rosemary Calandriello from Atlantic Highlands and Zarinsky was charged with her kidnapping. Her body was never found and his charges were dismissed on the grounds of denial of a speedy trial. He may have gotten away with it had he not begun bragging about how he skirted the law because no one would find her body after the murders of his next three victims. In 1968, 13-year-old Jane Durrua disappeared and her body was found nude in a field in North Middleton. In December of 1974, Zarinsky was again the suspect in the murders of 14-year-old Doreen Carlucci and 15-year-old Joanne Delardo from Middlesex Country. Again, the girls were kidnapped, this time together, and their bodies dumped half-naked in Manalapan Township. Their cause of death was strangulation with an electrical cord. In February 1975, Zarinsky was charged with Calendriello’s murder and held in lieu of $125,000 bond. He was convicted in April of first degree murder and was upheld upon appeal when the court decided the absence of a body does not bar someone from prosecution. In August 1999, his cousin implicated him and Theodore Schiffer, another cousin, in the 1958 murder of Rahway police officer Charles Bernoski. Schieffer pled guilty in that case and was a witness against Zarinsky. Bernoski’s widow then sued Zarinsky for wrongful death of her husband and was awarded $9.5 million in damages. Zarinsky died in prison on November 28, 2008 of pulmonary fibrosis.

Antonis Daglis

Antonis Daglis was a Greek serial killer that terrorized prostitutes in Athens, Greece in the mid 1990s. After raping and strangling his three victims, he would then dispose of their bodies by way of dismemberment with a chainsaw and scattering their remains along the sides of highways. How Daglis managed to elude capture so long is beyond understanding. He was not the best at his craft and managed to let six women destined for the same fate escape. One woman, Ann Hamson, was even able to convince Daglis that, although he did pick her up as if she was a prostitute, she was not a lady of the night and therefore he should let her go, and he did.

When all was said and done, he confessed to various crimes and was convicted on January 23, 1997 on counts such as three rape-slayings and six attempted murders. Daglis was sentenced to 13 consecutive life terms plus and extra 25 years behind bars.

Bai Baoshan

Bai entering court

Considered China’s most prolific serial killer with 15 known victims, Bai Baoshan’s “revenge” began in March of 1996 after being released from prison on a 13-year stint for murder and robbery in the early 1980s.

In March, Baoshan attacked a police guard and stole his semi-automatic weapon that he later used to kill one person and wound six others. Police and investigators believe he also robbed and killed a cigarette vendor in Beijing prior to leaving town and heading to the northern Chinese province Hebei. While there, Baoshan killed another policeman to steal his automatic gun. He traveled quickly to Urumqi, the capital of the Xinjiang province where he picked up two accomplices. The trio then killed ten people which included police officers, security guards, and civilians. During their spree, they also managed to steal 1.5 million yuan (roughly $226,000) to fund their travels and survival. But with Baoshan being who he was, he did not want to share his loot with his cohorts, so he killed one of them and ran off with the money alone. In October of 1997, Baoshan returned to Beijing and was arrested by the authorities. He was charged with 14 homicides and countless other felonies to which he confessed to all of them. He was tried and convicted for all counts and was put to death on May 6, 1998.

Howard Arthur Allen

Mug Shot

In 1974, Howard was just 24-years-old and had already been convicted of manslaughter when he had broken into the home of 85-year-old Opal Cooper. He had intended to just rob her of her valuables, but ended up beating her to death during the crime. He was sentenced to 21 years in prison and was paroled in January 1985. He moved home to Indianapolis where he worked in a car wash to make ends meet.

On May 18, 1987, Allen’s reign of terror began with a 73-year-old woman who barely escaped death at his hands. Two days later, 87-year-old Laverne Hale was not so lucky. Allen tried the same thing on a home of an elderly man just five blocks from Laverne’s home but when he found that the man was not home, he set fire to the residence to express his anger. July 14, 1987, 73-year-old Ernestine Griffin was stabbed eight times with a butcher knife and a toaster was used to beat her about the head in an attack that took her life. Allen made off with just $15 and a camera. Allen was arrested later that day. When all was said and done, Allen had killed two women and set fire to a home in the course of three months. He was also a suspect in eleven other cases involving robbery or assault on elderly victims in their homes. Allen was convicted in 1988 and sentenced to 88 years behind bars. He was also convicted individually for the murder of Ernestine Griffin and was sentenced to death. His sentence was commuted to 60 years in 2013 and he is set for released in 2035.

Charles William Yukl

Charles William Yukl was a self-employed piano teacher when he was first convicted of murdering one of his students, 25-year-old Suzanne Reynolds. He had reported her body in an adjacent apartment. She was beaten, stripped, and stabbed to death. Yukl was brought in for questioning and confessed to her murder the following morning. He was tried, convicted, and sentenced to 7-15 years in prison. However, he was released after only five years due to being a model prisoner and a good candidate for parole.

Yukl lasted only 14 months before he killed again on August 20, 1974. The nude body of Karen Schlegel was found on the rooftop of an apartment building in Greenwich Village. She had been dead only 12 hours and her cause of death was strangulation. Yukl was a prime suspect as he lived in that apartment building as well. He also confessed to luring her to her death by utilizing an ad placed in a theatrical magazine. Yukl told the authorities that he strangled her with a necktie prior to stripping her and carrying her to the rooftop the night before. He was declared competent for trial by psychiatrists and was indicted on September 6, 1974. In June of 1976, Yukl reached a plea agreement for a 15-year sentence. However, on August 22, 1982, he hung himself in his prison cell using a shredded mattress cover.

Jose Antonio Rodriguez Vega

Vega Heading Into Court

Considered Spain’s most prolific serial killer, Jose Antonia Rodriguez Vega murdered 16 elderly women within the two years of 1986-1988. Vega had already been a convicted rapist at this point and had spent years in prison for his crimes. However, once he left prison, he found himself to be impotent and incredibly frustrated and ashamed. His modus operandi was simple: convince the women he was the right man for their simple task, then kill and rape them.

Vega was not your normal serial killer though as he was extremely good at cleaning his crime scenes. His first set of murders were so clean that they were not even considered crimes until he confessed during his capture. He would finish his crime by tucking them neatly redressed and tucked into their beds and the authorities wrote them off as deaths due to old age. Vega did keep trophies of his victims and even kept a complex shrine with all of them in his home. That shrine helped many people report possible crimes when a local news organizations broadcast video from his apartment and photos of his shrine. People called in to the authorities when they saw items belonging to their relatives on his shrine. He was convicted and sentenced to 440 years. However, Spanish law stated that he would not serve more than 30 years and he was scheduled for release in 2008. Have no fear, though. You will never run into Vega in Spain or any other location as he was killed by two inmates brandishing shanks on October 22, 2002.

Richard Trenton Chase

Chase Trying to Stare Down the Media

Known as the Vampire of Sacramento, Richard Trenton Chase killed six people in his drive to obtain and drink as much blood as he could in an effort to cure an unknown disease he was certain he had. This unknown disease, he insisted, was drying up his own blood and was contracted through a poison placed under his soap dish by Nazi’s.

His need for blood began on December 29, 1977 when Chase gunned down 51-year-old Ambrose Griffin in a drive-by shooting. Griffin was not drained of blood as this was just a “warm up” for Chase to get him ready for the murders he was planning to carry out. Chase moved on in January 1978 when he then entered the home of married couple, David and Theresa, where Theresa was home and three months pregnant. She had taken out the garbage and left the door unlocked. He killed her by shooting her in the head and obtained her blood by cutting her open with a kitchen knife. He also ate some of her organs. He committed his last murders on January 27, 1977 when he entered the home of 22-year-old Evelyn Miroth who was home and babysitting her 22-month-old nephew and her own six-year-old son. Evelyn had a neighbor over to watch the boys while she took a bath. Dan Meredith, 51, was shot point blank in the head when he entered the hall way to see who had some in the door. Evelyn’s six-year-old tried to escape Chase by running to the bedroom, but was shot in the head, as was the 22-month-old nephew. Chase proceeded into the bathroom where he found Evelyn, shot her, dragged her body to the bedroom, and drank her blood. Had it not been for the knock on the front door by a little neighbor girl who had a play date with Evelyn’s son, it is hard to say what would have happened next.

Chase was apprehended and stood tried in 1979. He was found guilty of first degree murder on all counts and was sentenced to die via gas chamber. However, before his sentence could be carried out, Chase took the easy way out and committed suicide using doctor prescribed anti-depressants he had been saving up for several weeks. Chase died on December 26, 1980, almost exactly three years since his crime spree began.

Joe Ball

Ball on the Beach

Joe Ball ran a tavern in the 1930s called The Sociable Inn. He had nice waitresses and an exciting alligator pit out back that smelled of rotting meat due to the bait he used to feed them with. Joe was a scary man who enjoyed showing off the feeding frenzy he created with his alligators during feeding time to bar patrons willing to pay a few extra pennies. He had also threatened a police officer with a gun after he complained about the smell coming from the alligator pit and had intimidated a neighbor to the point of the neighbor packing his family up in the middle of the night and leaving the state. Ball had a much deeper and darker side, however.

In September 1937, Minnie Gotthardt, 22-years-old, was reported missing to the authorities by her family. Her last place of employment was at Ball’s bar. He told police she had left for another job and the police were satisfied with his answer and closed the case. The second woman reported missing was Julia Turner. Another bar maid that Ball insisted had left after a fight she had with her roommate and Ball had given her $500 to help her leave. The fight was never proven to have happened once they spoke to the roommate. Hazel Brown vanished after opening a bank account and then never claiming the money she deposited into it. Once the Texas Rangers became involved, it became clear that he had a history of knowing women who ended up missing, permanently. These included Ball’s second and third wives. Ball also had an accomplice who eventually gave up some information that lead to an inquiry into Ball’s establishment. However, when the Texas Rangers entered the Sociable Inn on September 24, 1938 to look at Ball’s meat barrel where he kept the food for his alligators, Ball realized his time was up. He pulled a gun from the register and shot himself in the head. In the end, it is speculated that Joe Ball may have killed and disposed of up to 20 women, feeding most of them to his alligators.

British Man Says The African Salmonella He Got In Tunisia Made His Testicle Explode

British Man Says The African Salmonella He Got In Tunisia Made His Testicle Explode

 

 

Congratulations, Tunisia. You just moved into the top ten on the list of places I’ll never visit.

According to the New York Post, a 59-year-old Bolton man said one of his testicles “exploded” after he contracted African salmonella while he and his wife went on a trip to Tunisia in 2014, and he’s now seeking a boatload of cash in return for his “hell.”

David Worsley said he caught the rare disease that was confined to just his “genital area” while he was on a tour with a company called TUI. He started feeling sick when he got back to the Rui Marco Polo Hotel in Hammamet, but he claims a TUI representative told him he just had sunstroke.

Well, that was far from the case, and what the hell, we’ll just let Worsley’s words prove our point:

“After the holiday, my testicle had swollen to the size of a grapefruit and it was so heavy it was like it was made of glass.vThe pain was so bad I thought I was going to die. When it finally exploded I felt fantastic. It was such a relief.

The doctor said I was highly contagious and that I wasn’t allowed to sleep with my wife. I was walking around holding them all the time, it was so heavy. A few days later, I woke up at about 5am with the most excruciating pain in my left testicle. I could barely move and I was in tears from the agony.

It literally went bang. When the doctor saw it later she said that it was like a volcano exploding. But it was such a relief because the pain had been so bad.

It has definitely affected me psychologically, it’s a big part of being a man that has gone.”

Damn, dude. That will probably be the only time you’ll ever hear a grown man say that one of his balls exploded and it felt “fantastic.”

 

 


Toddler Girl Is Viciously Beaten By Her Mother Because She Couldn’t Find Her Tablet [DISTURBING]

Toddler Girl Is Viciously Beaten By Her Mother Because She Couldn’t Find Her Tablet [DISTURBING]

Three children have been taken into care in Argentine after horrific footage emerged of their mother abusing one of them in their home. It shows the eldest child, a girl aged three, being lifted up by her hair and kicked in the back by her mother who accuses her of losing her tablet computer. The video was filmed by an unknown witness in their home in the city of Bahia Blanca, in the eastern Argentina province of Buenos Aires.

The video starts with the mother smacking the child repeatedly as she accuses the girl of ‘stealing’ her tablet computer. The woman is heard screaming at the tot: ‘Why don’t you remember where you left the things? ‘Give me the tablet, you had it here over the table when I arrived here. Give it to me because I will kill you.’

 

The girl starts to sob and cowers, clearly terrified, as her mother continues the abusive attack. The unnamed mother then first lifts the child by up by her hair, and then kicks her hard in the back. The video was uploaded to Facebook where it was widely shared, and social services has since reportedly stepped in.

 

The three-year-old along with her two younger siblings, have since been removed from the home by authorities and they are now under the care of social services while an investigation is launched. It is not known if the mother has been arrested or charged over the abuse.

 

 

 


11 People Share What Made Them Nope Right Out Of A Friendship

11 People Share What Made Them Nope Right Out Of A Friendship

They say friendships are forever, but like...not ALL friendships. Some you just kinda stumble into and roll with for far too long until you realize you've made a horrible mistake.

1. CrypticConscience - Yes, that would be an acceptable friendship ending point.

He wrapped a rope around another friends throat and then attempted to stab me

EDIT: For all those asking for a backstory, he was a really bad friend, he tried to choke my buddy because he stole his seat, and when I confronted him he pulled out the knife and went postal

2. luca423 -- Nobody likes the always super drunk friend.

He had a drinking problem and it started to become me baby sitting him whenever he got drunk because he'd just be a liability and eventually after trying to talk with him about it and him not accepting it I just kinda stopped hanging around him.

3. natlesia -- 99% of long essay text message senders are blah.

When her boyfriend that we became friends with through their relationship posted in our friend group chat about struggling with depression and that he had to redo a year of college. In response, she wrote a long essay about what a lazy sack of shit he was that would never amount to anything because he didn't try hard enough. This was one of many of the crazy nightmarish things she did, like call him 70+ times in an hour. My other friend and I realized that we actually liked him a lot more and that she was an abusive shit heel and dropped her. He's now one of my longest lasting best friends so it was the right choice.

4. lizzylizzo123 -- Yeah, no reason to hang onto this friend.

I always asked her to hangout and she always claimed to be busy. Easy enough to believe. One day I asked and as usual she says no--working. 15 minutes later she texts saying "I'm here". Confused, I said "oh did you take off work?". Her reply: "oh.. wrong person haha". Haha indeed.

5. heyrainyday -- BE EXCITED FOR MY POOR FINANCIAL DECISIONS.

She got angry at me and demanded an apology. I didn't know what I'd done, plus she had raging crazy pregnancy hormones. I asked what it was for, and she told me I knew what I'd done and she wouldn't speak to me again until I apologized.

At the time I was CRUSHED. But as the days and weeks passed, I began to see how toxic she was. I found new hobbies. Life moved on. In hindsight, I'm glad she ended our friendship - life is a lot better without her.

By the way- I'm pretty she she was angry because I didn't get excited enough over a $6000 crib she was thinking about buying for the baby. I just couldn't get excited about a $6000 piece of furniture that would be used for two or three years at most.

Edit: the crib was just a crib. It didn't convert into a toddler bed or daybed. It wasn't even handmade by an Amish carpenter who bathed in water from a Tibetan spring or some crap like that. It was made in China and it was sold in a store that specialized in overpriced crap for people who have no financial skills.

6. Dom3495 -- Two-for-one loss of friendships.

He asked my girlfriend for nudes. She delivered.

7. 3PinkPotatoes -- Time to drop [friend].

Constant negativity. No matter what. Came home one one day looking drained & unhappy after spending the afternoon with her. My mom said to me: You always look this way after spending time with [friend].

And I was like I always feel this way after spending time with her. Huge eye opener. Cut the cord that day.

8. gestures_to_penis -- Who slams a cat into walls?!

Came home from a work trip that lasted a few days, he was my roommate and was taking care of my cat for me. He got angry, slammed my cat into a wall and broke it's leg. No matter how long I've known him, how many times I've felt burned by him in my life and how many times I've been forgiving, he hurt my little buddy.

9. FamiliarNameMissing_ -- People who take pride in being difficult -- why do you do this?

She was always angry at someone often for something she did. She didn't get along with people & she as proud of being difficult. Eventually I realized while I loved her when we were children, I no longer cared for the person she had grown into.

10. ChalkBoardScratcher -- Nah dude, I'm not big into felonies.

Conversation during a history class in high school, the dickbag said "We broke into 2 houses this weekend and got some cool shit, come with us next time dude."

11. torikat74 -- Something "really funny" to tell her

Long post, but:

I had 3 roommates my freshman year of college. Me, Emily, Hannah, and Danielle (names changed here). Danielle and I automatically clicked and it was great, and I got along really well with Hannah, but there was quickly tension between Emily and I. Emily was super neat & clean; Im a bit of a clutter bug. Regardless, I respected the fact that we had shared space, and I kept such spaces clean.

Except every now and then there would be trash left out, or dirty dishes. Small things at first that then became larger and more frequent. Emily blamed me, since I was the "messy" one. She would flat-out yell at me about it. I wasn't the one doing it, but I didn't know who was. I was really struggling with my anxiety disorder at the time and I would literally sit in my room and cry because I didn't know what to do. The living situation became so toxic and full of anger. Danielle would always comfort me and talk about how much of a "bitch" Emily was. I was very shy and never had many friends, so I clung to Danielle as my one confident and support system.

Things escalated all year. One day Emily's entire bottle of expensive shampoo was emptied out in the shower. Another day, someone had deliberately swept handfuls of crumbs underneath her door. It was fucking ridiculous. She and I ended up having a screaming match at each other during finals week, before we all moved out for the summer. Neither of us could come to terms with one another.

ANYWAY. It was like July and I was texting Danielle and she tells me she has something really funny to tell me. And she tells me that IT WAS HER THE WHOLE TIME. She told me she hated Emily, and she wanted to "play a prank" on her, so she was the one causing all the issues. She honestly thought it was funny, even though she'd watched me have anxiety attacks all year over all of it. She also said wanted to make sure I was close friends with her and not our other roommates, because she "didn't want to lose me".

Yeah, I basically dropped the friendship" real quick after that. I still think about the entire situation and how fucking crazy and childish it was. I'm also a bit ashamed that it took me until that moment to really step back and see how horribly she treated people. She still sometimes messages me and asks "why we grew so far apart".

Ya, uh, It's because you're insane.

Emily and I are pretty good friends now, btw. She and I are going to be bridesmaids in Hannah's wedding Saturday! :)


10 Newlyweds Who Killed Their Spouses On Their Honeymoons

10 Newlyweds Who Killed Their Spouses On Their Honeymoons

A honeymoon is expected to be one of the happiest times in a couple’s marriage. Unfortunately, for each of the following couples, it was the end of their relationship. In these marriages, one of the newlyweds decided that he or she would be happier alone.

Of course, each of them could have filed for divorce or possibly an annulment. But apparently, they were still enveloped in the warm, loving feelings that accompany recent marriages and decided to kill their new spouses instead.

10 Sachin Mishra

Sachin Mishra was forced to divorce his first wife when relatives found out that the spouses were related. Sachin remarried a year later. However, he could not get over his first wife. He frequently spoke with her and often bought her gifts. The relationship put a strain on his new marriage, and the newlyweds constantly argued.

After Sachin had spent two months in an unhappy marriage, he decided to take his wife, Kanak, on a honeymoon. He and Kanak spent a night at a hotel before they explored an isolated side of a mountain. The couple started to argue about Sachin’s first wife, and Sachin attacked Kanak. He beat her head with sharp-edged stones, drove a nail into her body, and pushed her off a cliff.[1]

Then he went to the police station and told them that his wife had been swept away by a river while swimming. Police sent in divers who returned empty-handed after two hours. Officers looked through video recordings of the area, but they could find no trace of Kanak. They decided to interrogate Sachin again, and he confessed to the murder.

9 Aurore Martin

Aurore Martin and Peter Uwe Schmitt met while mountain climbing in 1991. The couple quickly hit it off, and they started dating. However, the next year, Schmitt married Ursula Deschamps.

The marriage quickly soured, and Deschamps agreed to speak to the police about an insurance scam that Schmitt had been involved in. Schmitt convinced his wife to go for a drive, and then he drove the car into a canal. He jumped free before the car hit the water. Deschamps managed to get out of the car, but Schmitt held her head underwater until she drowned.

The authorities suspected foul play, but the investigation was bungled. Schmitt was only sentenced to three years of probation. It later emerged that he had cashed in a life insurance policy worth $500,000.

A few years later, Schmitt’s old girlfriend Aurore Martin joined a matchmaking service and met Marc Van Beers. The two married and went on a honeymoon. While Van Beers was driving, he noticed someone on the side of the road and pulled over. Schmitt and three of his friends grabbed Van Beers and beat him to death with a baseball bat. Van Beers’s last words were: “Please don’t hurt my wife.”

The men put Van Beers into the car and pushed it off a cliff. They left Martin on the side of the road, and she called for help. She told police that she had leaped from the car seconds before it plunged into the ravine. Van Beers’s family was unhappy with her explanation and became suspicious when she insisted that Van Beers be cremated.[2]

Martin cashed in insurance policies worth $800,000. Then she and Schmitt left for Florida where they embarked on a lavish spending spree. The pair befriended Lee Marburger, and Martin confessed that she and Schmitt “had been involved with a murder.” Schmitt called Marburger the next day and threatened to shoot him if he told anyone. Marburger called the police.

Police captured the couple. Martin was sentenced to 15 years, and Schmitt was sentenced to 20. She was released after six years, and he after seven. The couple resumed their relationship.

8 Vidyalakshmi

Vidyalakshmi’s family prevented her from marrying her childhood friend, Anand, whom she had dated for many years. Instead, they encouraged her to marry Anantharaman, a distant relative, who was quite wealthy. She felt that she could not refuse the marriage and accepted Anantharaman’s proposal.

Anand begged her to elope. But she worried that the shock could hurt her mother, who had hypertension. The couple decided to kill Anantharaman so that they could be together. Vidyalakshmi planned her honeymoon itinerary to the tiniest detail, and she passed it along to Anand. He and his friend Anburaj followed the newlyweds when they honeymooned.

Vidyalakshmi texted Anand her every movement. Anantharaman took his wife on a boat ride across a lake, and then the couple laid on the ground, snapping pictures. Anand and Anburaj approached the couple from behind.

They grabbed Anantharaman’s camera strap and choked him with it. Vidyalakshmi watched her husband go limp, and she handed her heavy necklace to one of the killers. She waited for the men to leave and then ran screaming the other way. Vidyalakshmi told villagers that someone had robbed her and killed her husband.[3]

Anand and Anburaj returned to the vehicle and asked the driver to take them back to the hotel. The pair spoke of the murder in a foreign language, which the driver understood. The driver followed them to their room, locked the room from the outside, and called the police. Officers questioned the men, and they confessed.

Vidyalakshmi, Anand, and Anburaj were all sentenced to life in prison.

7 Scott Robin Roston

Scott Roston and Karen Waltz embarked on a cruise nine days after they were married. The pair decided to go on a moonlit jog around the upper-deck jogging track. They got into a fight. Roston strangled his wife and tossed her overboard.

Roston went to the bridge and told the staff captain that Waltz had fallen overboard. The captain contacted the police. Roston told officers that he had fallen behind on their run and was unable to save his wife when powerful winds blew her overboard.

Police did not believe his story, and they arrested him. Waltz’s body was found 12 hours later. She had a large bump on her forehead, marks on her neck, and a small puncture below her breast. An autopsy confirmed that she had been strangled.

Roston changed his story three days after he was arrested. He claimed that Israeli agents had killed Waltz in retaliation for his book Nightmare in Israel in which he wrote about human right abuses in Israel. Roston said that he knew so much about human rights violations in Israel that the country’s prime minister feared him.

Roston claimed that the country had sent people after him a few months earlier and that Israeli agents had ambushed him outside a shopping mall. The men had grabbed him and threatened him in Hebrew: “Israel wants you.” Roston had broken free, grabbed his gun, and shot one of the men before he sped away.[4]

Police and jurors rejected his claim. Roston was found guilty of second-degree murder. He was sentenced to life in prison, although his sentence was later reduced to 33 years.

6 Ernest Dumoulin

Ernest Dumoulin met Helga Konrad through a lonely hearts advertisement. After two weeks, they traveled to Scotland and eloped. On their wedding night, Dumoulin suggested that they go for a walk. He wanted to look at the city’s lights, chat, and enjoy each other’s company. When they reached the top of the cliff, he hugged his new wife and pushed her over the side.

A seaman discovered Konrad’s body, and he found two police officers. They ran into Dumoulin, who insisted that his wife had lost her footing and plunged to her death. Police took him in for questioning, and the couple’s room was searched.

They discovered details of a £412,368 insurance policy taken out on Helga’s life the day before she died. Dumoulin had attempted to cash in the policies the day after his wife died. However, the insurance company would not pay out due to the circumstances of Konrad’s death.[5]

Dumoulin was found guilty of murdering his wife and sentenced to life imprisonment. He was released after 16 years.

5 Simran Pal Singh Bhullar

A few weeks after Simran Pal Singh Bhullar and Simranjeet Kaur were married, they left for their honeymoon. After they checked into their hotel, they went sightseeing. The couple got into an argument. Bhullar believed that his wife was having an illicit affair with a family member, and he confronted her.

Bhullar grew angry, and he hit and strangled his wife. He pushed Kaur off a cliff and waited on the spot for more than 30 minutes to ensure that she was dead.

Bhullar went on the run after the murder. A few days later, both Bhullar’s family and Kaur’s family filed missing person reports. Police managed to track Bhullar to a friend’s house after the friend’s father turned him in.

Officers questioned Bhullar, and he confessed to the murder. He led police to the murder scene, and they recovered his wife’s badly mutilated body.

Bhullar was sentenced to life in prison.[6]

4 Anthony Edwin Kircus

Anthony Kircus and Catherine Ann Alexandrowicz hit it off because they accepted each other’s drinking. The couple’s lifestyle revolved around alcohol. Unfortunately, Kircus was a mean drunk. He once beat Alexandrowicz severely, and the police were called. Kircus was arrested after he attacked two of the responding officers.

Kircus was released on bond, and he and Alexandrowicz decided to get married in Las Vegas. They spent their honeymoon drinking. A few days into their drunken celebration, the pair got into an argument. Kircus attacked Alexandrowicz, beating and strangling her until she was dead.[7]

Kircus left Alexandrowicz’s body in the hotel and drove off. Her body was found a couple days later. Police searched for Kircus, following his credit card trail. They arrested him in the valet section of a hotel where he was attempting to get into a stolen vehicle. Kircus confessed to the murder and was sentenced to 19 years in prison.

3 Michel Escoto

Michel Escoto was desperate for quick, easy money, and he managed to convince his girlfriend, Wendy Trapaga, to sign a $1 million life insurance policy. He pushed her to marry him and then convinced her to lie to her family about being pregnant.

Escoto met an ex-girlfriend, Yolanda Cerrillo, and he told her of his plan to kill Trapaga. He planned to drug Trapaga and drown her, making it look like she had died from an overdose. Cerrillo offered to help. She ground up Percocet, and they practiced how to drown the young woman.

Escoto and Trapaga married, and they booked a room at a local hotel. Escoto poisoned his wife’s drink, and she lost consciousness. She awoke when he attempted to drown her in the Jacuzzi.

After putting Trapaga in his car, he drove to Cerrillo’s house. Cerrillo followed Escoto to a deserted area. He pulled Trapaga out of his car, beat her with a tire iron, and strangled her until she died. He left her body lying on the ground. Then he and Cerrillo drove away.[8]

Trapaga’s battered body was soon discovered. Escoto told police that she had left the motel after they had argued, and he had not seen her since. Police were suspicious, but they had no evidence tying him to the murder.

Two months later, Escoto filed a claim for the life insurance money. He then sued the insurance company in an effort to collect on his late wife’s policy. During the civil trial, he gave conflicting versions of what had happened on the night of his bride’s death and authorities arrested him.

Cerrillo testified against him in exchange for immunity, and Escoto was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

2 Brian L. Umphrey

Brian Umphrey had an extensive criminal history: He had been arrested for forgery, theft, drug-related issues, and burglary. He had also been a suspect in at least nine assault cases. However, Cassandra Petry decided to overlook his past and married him.

Their relationship was rocky. Umphrey was a violent man who had once beat her so severely that she was hospitalized. Petry took out an order of protection, explaining that she had been beaten, choked, and held hostage. Umphrey broke into her home and threatened to burn the house down.

Then Umphrey decided to go on a crime spree. He stole Petry’s car and drained her bank account. While he was imprisoned, she divorced him. However, she still visited him in prison. When Umphrey was released, he went back to Petry.

The couple decided to remarry and went on their honeymoon a few weeks later. Umphrey attacked his wife with a knife as she lay in bed. He covered her body with sheets and cleaned up in the bathroom, leaving behind a bloody mess.[9]

Her family worried when she did not arrive home on time. They called police and asked them to check on her. They found her dead with multiple stab wounds. Police immediately named Umphrey as a suspect, and officers managed to catch him after a short police chase.

Umphrey pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced to 35 years in prison.

1 Claudius James Giesick

Samuel Corey managed to convince his friend, Claudius Giesick, to marry a girl for the insurance money. Giesick became a regular customer at massage parlors while he looked for the perfect bride. He discovered Patricia Ann Albanowski.

He took an immediate interest in Albanowski and swiftly proposed. She hesitated, and Giesick brought Corey by to help convince her to go through with the marriage. Corey was successful, and Albanowski agreed to marry Giesick. Corey offered to perform the ceremony, and the couple was quickly wed. Two days later, Giesick purchased insurance policies on Albanowski totaling $350,000.

The couple traveled to New Orleans for their honeymoon. Giesick left his bride alone for most of the trip. He was busy plotting her murder with Corey. He returned to their room late one night and told Albanowski that he wanted to show her a family of ducks. The pair stumbled to the bayou in the dark.

The couple stayed by the water for several minutes before they began to walk back to their hotel. Corey drove past, made a U-turn, and parked. He signaled with his parking lights, indicating he was ready.

Giesick stopped by a tree and signaled three times with his flashlight. He waited for the right moment, and then he shoved and tripped Albanowski. She fell into the street. Corey ran over her and then drove off. Someone else drove by, and they called the police. Albanowski was brought to the hospital, where she died a few hours later.[10]

Albanowski’s mother wrote a letter to the police. She mentioned that her daughter had called home only a few hours before her death, expressing concern about the large amount of insurance on her. When police investigated the policy, they learned that Giesick and Corey had both asked questions about hit-and-run accidents.

Police managed to convince Giesick to testify against Corey in exchange for a reduced sentence. Giesick was sentenced to 21 years in prison. However, he was released after 12. Corey was sentenced to death, which was later reduced to life in prison. He died while imprisoned.


5 Musical Artists That Inspired (Terrible) Video Games

5 Musical Artists That Inspired (Terrible) Video Games

If you’re like me, you love bad music with a passion. If you’re even more like me, you have a similar affinity for bad video games. If you’re even MORE like me, your idea of heaven is when the two collide in a grotesque mishmash of mediocrity. And if we’re that similar, hey, maybe we’re siblings? Wanna hang out over the holidays? JUST WRITE ME BACK ALREADY. In the meantime, here are five times that musical artists inspired terrible video games.

 

Power Factory

(source)

Back in the early '90s, the novelty of CD-ROMs and video editing were all the rage, leading to so, so many “games” being predicated on just chopping and screwing your own crappy videos. And hell, since it’s the early '90s, why NOT throw C + C Music Factory in the mix? On the list of “Things That Make Me Go Hmm…”, this is number one with a bullet.

 

Make My Video

(source)

SEE WHAT I MEAN? The brutal Make My Video series featured three installments, a veritable smorgasbord of insanely dated trash. In order of talent/relevance, we had INXS, Kris Kross, and holy hell, Marky Mark & the Funky Bunch. Unless you’re letting me use cutting-edge graphic technology to drop ACME-style anvils on these people, this game is the HARDEST of nos for me.

 

Devo Presents Adventures of the Smart Patrol

(source)

A Devo game in theory sounds like it could be pretty rad in a surreal, fever-dream kind of way. That theory was not applied here. What resulted was a drab point-and-click adventure that is part of the reason the term “CD-ROM” haunts me to this day. You’d think they could have... whipped... up a better game? Eh? Is that anything?

 

KISS Pinball

(source)

Pinball can already be mind-numbingly frustrating, so why not shoehorn in the world’s most insufferable band to crank the migraines up to 11? With two bland tables to choose from and literally nothing else to speak of, KISS Pinball seems tailor-made for about 4.4 seconds of fun. At the very least, in a hilarious act of mercy, you can open up the lid of the PlayStation and play whatever CD you want while you play, meaning you can listen to literally anything but KISS.

 

Guitar Hero: Van Halen

(source)

The one million different Guitar Hero variants were, for the most part, pretty swell. Playing the music of bands like Metallica was novel in its own mid-'00s way, but Guitar Hero: Van Halen managed to screw all that up on a mind-boggling scale. It should tell you everything that in this game, you play as Van Halen the way they CURRENTLY look. No offense to my boys, but that’s like buying a Marlon Brando acting simulator where the only level is The Island of Dr. Moreau.


10 Horrifying Tales Of Penis Dismemberment

10 Horrifying Tales Of Penis Dismemberment

 

 

Men tend to value their penises. In addition to being a rather useful, multipurpose organ, more than a few societies through history have propped the appendage up as a symbol of masculinity and manhood. It should come as no surprise, then, that tales of penis dismemberment fill men with a singular dread.

Forcible phallus removal is the arguably the ultimate insult—and maybe the ultimate negotiation tool. Manhoods have been mauled in homicidal rampages, severed in torture, self-mutilated, removed in acts of self-defense and revenge, lopped off in ritual sacrifice, and, occasionally, even fed to their owner.

10 Caged With A Madman

In July 2015, a Maricopa County jury sentenced an inmate to death for murdering another prisoner with whom he shared a small isolation cell. In the process, he sliced off his victim’s penis. Jasper Rushing, 45, has a long history of mental illness with a diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia. During the time of the attack, he was already serving a 28-year sentence for murdering his stepfather in 2001.

Evidence revealed that the victim, Shannon Palmer, was still alive when his penis was cut off with a makeshift knife in 2010 at Arizona State Prison Complex-Lewis. Following the castration, Rushing beat Palmer to death with a book wrapped in a sheet. Most attribute the rampage to poor conditions within the Arizona prison system. A lack of resources for mental health results in ill inmates being placed alongside the rest of the prison population. Journalist Paul Rubin noted, “Bad things happen in a house like that.”[1] In 2017, the Arizona Supreme Court vacated Rushing’s death sentence.

9 Boiled Testicles


In June 2017, a UK judge sentenced a duo of killers to life in prison after they forced a man to eat his own testicle. In March 2016, the festering and scavenged remains of James Prout were discovered in a filthy sleeping bag near the A187 in North Tyneside. According to the prosecution, Zahid Zaman and Ann Corbet subjected Prout to “Dark Ages–style” torture prior to his death. They beat him and removed his teeth with a hammer and chisel. One of his testicles was sliced out of his scrotum and boiled before being fed to him.[2]

Prosecutor Paul Greaney alleged that Prout fell into a “cultish” group run by Zaman. The 43-year-old Zaman is wheelchair-bound from an earlier accident. Despite his handicap, the prosecution claimed Zaman was “physically capable” of the assault. Prout, described as a “vulnerable” man, was subjected to months of beating, mistreatment, and humiliation, including “intercourse with a dog.”

8 Madness In Moscow


In December 2017, a Moscow nonsmoker went on a rampage, severing his roommate’s head, limbs, and genitals. The roommate confessed to murdering Eduard Assylov, 37, because he could not stand his cigarette smoking. Horrified neighbors discovered the remains of the mutilated mechanic in a communal corridor of the dormitory where they resided. Atop a bloodstained pillow, they found Assylov’s head, limbs, and member.

“He had been stabbed nine times in the stomach and five times in the groin,” noted a Moscow police spokesperson. “In total he was stabbed more than 40 times before being dismembered.” Assylov’s ears and left-hand middle finger had also been severed. Given the slaying’s severity, investigators initially believed the brutality to be a lovers’ spat. The unnamed 45-year-old nonsmoker is originally from Irkutsk in Siberia. He moved to Moscow for driver work. He has been charged with murder and faces life behind bars.[3]

7 Acolyte Of The Snake God

In September 2015, a convicted murderer in Nebraska cut his penis to make it look like the ancient Egyptian serpent god Apophis (aka Apep). The laceration to his genitals required 27 stitches. This was his third self-mutilation in prison. In April 2015, he carved “666” into his forehead. However, it was done before a mirror, and came out backward.[4]

During the murderer’s trial, Dr. Eugene Oliveto testified that Jenkins was a psychopath and “one of the most dangerous people” he had crossed paths with. The prosecution claimed Jenkins murdered four people execution-style to cover up robberies. Jenkins insists he was ordered by Apophis to sacrifice the four victims. He was convicted on four counts of first-degree homicide and sentenced to death.

6 Emasculating Exorcism

In November 2017 in India, a father confessed to hacking off his 13-year-old son’s penis with an ax. Ram Gopal Patel, 39, performed the deed to rid his house in Chhattisgarh of “evil spirits.” The advice came from 19-year-old witch doctor Rajesh Yadav. The Patel family had been complaining of evil spirits for months. Buzzing utensils and strange noises coming from windows led them to consult with Yadav. He recommended a sacrifice.[5]

Police report that Patel and Yadav hit the son, Rupesh, on the head and then “chopped off his genitals with an axe and left him lying on the floor in a pool of blood.” Rupesh bled to death. Rupesh’s mother discovered his body upon returning from work. According to India’s National Crime Records Bureau, one person was killed roughly every three days in 2015 as a result of witchcraft. Witch doctors are common in rural parts of the country with the highest illiteracy rates.

5 ‘Yo Baudie Is Ma Party’

In November 2017, Chicago authorities made a grisly discovery in a basement on the 11500 block of South Bishop Street. Police visited the residence of Carl Edmondson to conduct a welfare check. In the subterranean shadows, they discovered the 61-year-old brutally murdered. Blunt force trauma shattered Carl’s head and cascaded the walls with skull and brain matter. Court documents revealed that investigators located pieces of his severed penis in the darkness. Carl also sustained deep lacerations to the lower body. Officers noted that the corpse also smelled of gasoline.[6]

Police arrested Carl’s son and charged him first-degree murder. Carlton Edmondson, 26, posted selfies to social media following the slaughter. The photos have since been removed. However, they allegedly show the father’s brutalized head with the caption, “Yo bAudie is mA party #babhyhh.” The Chicago Tribune reported that another selfie was posted featuring Cartlon in blood-splattered clothing.

4 Vegas Strip Mutilator


In 2006, a Nevada jury convicted Kirstin Lobato of murdering a homeless manand slicing off his penis. On July 8, 2001, police discovered the body of Duran Bailey, 44, behind a dumpster off the Vegas Strip. Wrapped in plastic, Bailey was beaten and disrobed and had a mutilated crotch.

Despite a lack of physical evidence and having an alibi, Lobato became the prime suspect based on a rumor. She admitted that she had stopped a sexual assault by slashing at her attacker’s groin in May, on the other end of town. While she did not initially report the attack, she confided in friends.

During the trial, medical examiner Lary Simms expanded his time-of-death window just wide enough for prosecutors to nail Lobato. His findings from his initial autopsy excluded Lobato as a suspect. In 2016, the Nevada Supreme Court ruled that lower courts would vet her claim for a retrial. In December 2017, a judge overturned her conviction and granted her a new trial.[7] All charges against Lobato were dismissed on December 29.

3 Self-Defense Slicer


In October 2017, a woman in the Central Indian village of Sirisadu was charged with attempted murder after she emasculated her husband with a kitchen knife. The 40-year-old victim, R. Ravinder, survived the impromptu castration and was treated at Jammikunta Government Hospital. His wife’s name has not been released.[8]

Investigators determined the mutilation occurred when Ravinder returned home drunk. According to neighbors, the couple frequently fought when he returned home after boozing. The wife claims Ravinder sexually assaulted her and tried to rape her in front of her children. At that point, she grabbed a knife and amputated his penis.

This wasn’t the first report of penis mutilation in 2017 in India. In July, a woman in Tamil Nadu lopped off her husband’s penis when she suspected him of cheating. She then carried the dismembered member in her purse to her parents’ home.

2 Mojave Mauling


In 2012, a medical marijuana dispensary owner was kidnapped by a trio looking for a secret stash of cash supposedly buried in the Mojave Desert. When they failed to locate the hidden $1 million, they cut off his penis. The victim’s name remains undisclosed due to the sexual nature of the crime. He was beaten, burned, and Tased before his manhood was removed. The torture occurred over a three-hour window, during which the captors demanded to know where he had the cash cached.

Kyle Shirakawa Handley faces charges of kidnapping, aggravated mayhem, and torture. The Fountain Valley marijuana grower came across the victim through business in the cash-rich industry. The plan to located the buried money emerged when Handley observed the victim in Vegas in May 2012 spending wads of cash. Hossein Nayeri, 39, and Ryan Kevorkian, 38, have also been charged in the case. All have pleaded not guilty.[9]

1 A Little Pruning

In November 2017, an Argentine woman broke into her boyfriend’s home and cut off his penis with pruning shears while he slept. Authorities in Cordoba tracked down and arrested 26-year-old Brenda Barattini after she was identified by her boyfriend, who managed to call paramedics for assistance. The 40-year-old victim has been identified as Sergio F., a reggae singer. He was admitted to a local hospital with reports of “sharp cuts to the penis and testicles.”[10]

Barattini confessed to using gardening shears to lop off her boyfriend’s manhood. Barattini’s lawyer, Carlos Nayi, claims the 26-year-old was merely defending herself from a sex attack. The prosecution, however, claims Sergio was blindfolded and fooled into a “sex game” before he was emasculated. Investigators discovered a notepad in Barattini’s residence that suggests that revenge might have been the motive. Unconfirmed reports indicate she received text message evidence that Sergio had been sleeping with other women.


15 CELEBRITIES WHO GOT SO CREEPY EVEN THEIR MOST AVID FANS LEFT THEM

15 CELEBRITIES WHO GOT SO CREEPY EVEN THEIR MOST AVID FANS LEFT THEM

 

 

There is something about being creepy that can’t really be described, but you know it when you see it. Sometimes you meet someone and you can tell right away that they are totally creepy, while other times it takes a little while before you figure it out, but once you figure it out, then it is all over. Once you are identified and known for being creepy there is no turning back.  This happens with normal people, but it happens with celebrities too.

Sometimes, there is a particular celebrity who is on top of the world, then all of a sudden they do something, or maybe they even do a whole bunch of things, that lets you know that they are a total creep who has been fooling everyone, including yourself, for a long time.  But they aren’t anymore, because just like in real life, once a creep is outed, then it’s all over.

What follows is a list of some of the biggest creeps in Hollywood. Some were huge stars just very recently, while others have been outed as creeps for a long time. All of their careers have either been in the toilet for years, or they are on their way there.

15. Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has always been a total creep, but he used to be a creep that was paid a lot of money to be creepy. When you think about it, that has to be confusing. He was a total nobody before he was picked to be on Jersey Shore then became a huge star who was paid millions of dollars, all because he came across as a totally insufferable creep. Then the show finally went off the air, he had some problems with drugs and with the law for not paying his taxes, and now no one likes him, even though he is the exact same guy as he always was. This is all simply because he is a creep. Just because you are a creep and making money for being one for a little while doesn’t mean it will last forever.

14. Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp is one of those guys who flew under the creep radar for a really long time. When he was young he was cool, there is no doubt about it, but as he aged he just got creepier and creepier. Some women denied it for a long time and still said that he was hot and all that, but at this point, it is hard to find anyone that doesn’t think he is a total little weirdo. The last thing keeping him totally off the creepy scale was his relationship with Amber Heard, but even she totally threw him under the creepy bus.  Mark my words by the time he is 70 years old no one will even remember that he used to be cool, and everyone will just talk about what a creep he is.

13. Bill Cosby

Bill Cosby is very possibly one of the biggest creeps of all time. Not just because of all of the terrible things that he did, but of how he positioned himself in society before they all went down. He constantly acted like he was a spokesperson and some sort of moral compass for the African American community, and as the star of The Cosby Show,  he presented himself as a role model for how a father should act. Then it turns out all along he was drugging women and sexually assaulting them, even though he, of course, denies it. Are you kidding me? Talk about a creep. It is one thing when you can look right at someone and tell they are odd, but another entirely when they are as big a fake as Cosby.

12. Pee Wee Herman

Pee Wee Herman, also known as Paul Reubens, was kind of a different case than most of these creeps, but that doesn’t make him any less creepy. As the star of Pee Wee’s Playhouse which was a children’s television show also popular with stoners and a couple of movies playing the same character, he used to be incredibly popular. It was obvious that he was pulling a gag and that his jokes were way more for adults than kids, but it didn’t make it any less creepy when he was arrested in an adult movie theatre for indecent exposure, you can probably guess what he was doing. His show was canceled, his career went straight downhill and he was forever branded a total creep.

11. Jeffrey Jones

Jeffrey Jones was well known for appearing in numerous popular movies, such as Howard the Duck, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and Beetlejuice. He had quite the career going until he was arrested for possessing child pornography and trying to get a teenage boy to pose for nude photographs. Jones really took being creepy to a whole other level, he was sentenced to probation and was required to register as a sex offender. This kind of thing tends to mess up one’s career when one is a celebrity and Jones obviously has never worked in the business again. There are different levels of creepy and although everyone on this list is a creep, Jones is near the top of the list.

10. Stephen Collins

Stephin Collins took a huge fall, both in his career and in what people thought of him as a person recently when it turned out that he admitted that he exposed himself to three young girls. This is nasty enough, but it is even worse is that he is most well known for playing a minister on 7th Heaven. I know it doesn’t really matter what he played as an actor, but it kind of does, you know? Stephen Collins is yet another person on this list that could have had a nice career and just kind of gone off into retirement with a whole lot of money except that he turned out to be a total creep. The moral of the story is, if you are a creep, don’t play a minister on TV.

9. Josh Duggar

Throughout history, there have been a lot of creeps who got by for a long time pretending to be religious. The whole scene is that no one really thinks they are all that creepy because they are wearing a mask, pretending to be a good and loving person. One of the biggest of this type in recent memory is Josh Duggar. As one of the kids on 19 Kids and Counting it first came out that he has molested a bunch of his sisters, but that was only the tip of the iceberg. Since then there have been numerous more reports about what a freak he is, including an allegation of sexual assault. One thing that we all have to learn about creeps, you never know for sure when you are looking at one, but let’s be honest, with Josh Duggar is was obvious all along.

8. Matt Lauer

Sometimes some people always seem like they are a creep and you kind of think they are a creep, but no one really says anything about it, until finally something comes out and you just sit back and tell yourself that you knew it all along. One of those people is the former Today Show host Matt Lauer, who was recently let go from his job after allegations that he was routinely totally creepy in relations with women that he knew professionally. Then everyone acted all surprised when in reality Laur had been acting like a total creep on the air for a really long time. Now that he has been outed as the true creep that he is, at least we all know that we won’t be seeing him on the air anymore.

7. Louis C.K

Let’s be honest about something here, Louis C.K has never been all that funny, but he has always been really creepy. It honestly makes me wonder what is even going on sometimes when so many people like someone who is obviously such a total jerk. When word came out that he has been accused of being sexually inappropriate with numerous women was there anyone out there that was really surprised? Of all the creepy people on this creepy list, there is a slight chance that his career might survive, but only because he already was so creepy that it seems ridiculous that people will be able to pretend that they care a whole lot about it for very long.

6. Andy Dick

Andy Dick is someone a bit different on this list. He had a bit of decent career years ago but ruined it by not only being overly into drugs and alcohol but by being about as creepy as anyone could possibly be. Stories are all over the place about all the times he touched someone in a creepy way or did something that was totally sexually wrong in public. But here is the thing, if Andy Dick wasn’t still famous for being creepy, what would he be famous for? Nothing. The only reason anyone even knows who he is these days is that he is a total mess. Just recently he was fired from a job on a movie because ” two sources detailed Dick’s inappropriate behavior, which included groping people’s genitals, unwanted kissing/licking and sexual propositions of at least four members of the production.” Andy, you are such a creep.

5. Kevin Spacey

There have long been rumors that Kevin Spacey was gay, but no one ever suspected that he was such a creep, except of course for all the different people that he has been incredibly creepy with. His career is effectively over. He has gone from being one of the most respected actors in the business to being thought of as one of the biggest creeps in the world. This is how quickly something like this can turn when you are a creep. You have to think that some of these guys think they are so rich and famous that they can be as creepy as they want and they will never have to face any repercussions from it. Well, Kevin Spacey found out that if you are creepy enough, that sooner or later it catches up to you.

4. Mel Gibson

Mel Gibson fooled most of us for a long time. He was the star of some of the biggest movies in history, including Mad Max, Braveheart, and Lethal Weapon. He also is a total creep. He has said so many horrible things that it isn’t even funny, and has insulted people from pretty much every single ethnic and racial group imaginable. He is without a doubt a horrible person and about as creepy as anyone could possibly imagine. He once had a pretty amazing legacy and would have gone down in history as a huge star, but instead, he revealed himself to be pretty much a total loser. It is a really hard thing to find someone who admits to being a fan of Mel Gibson anymore. That is how creepy he is.

3. Jeremy Piven

Here is another one that is no surprise at all. For years everyone has been saying what an absolute jerk that Jeremy Pivin is, but he still seems to have been able to slide by, until recently anyway. While he used to just be thought of as a total jerk and a bad boyfriend, now he has been accused of doing things that are inappropriate sexually. That is never a good look for someone in the public eye. Of course, Pivin has said that what he is accused of isn’t true, but he has been thought of as a total jerk for so long that it almost seems too easy to think of him as being a creep as well. I mean is Jeremy Pivin creepy? I would place a pretty good bet on the fact that he is.

2. Harvey Weinstein

The current leader of the Hollywood creepy parade is none other than Harvey Weinstein. This is the whole thing about what has been going on lately in the entertainment scene, you act like a total creep for decades, and everyone seems cool with it, then all of a sudden you are a creep on the outs. He now literally has 84 women and counting who have accused him of things that are inappropriate to things that are criminal. The guys’ career is totally gone, and all because he is a creep? Where is the love? Poor Harvey, he must be really confused. But you know that is the thing about being a creep, sooner or later people are going to catch on, and when they do things go South pretty quickly.

1. Crispin Glover

Crispin Glover is a different kind of creep than other people on this list. Most of them are creeps because of things that they actually did, while Glover is a creep because…well because he is a creep. Most of you probably know him for his role on Back to the Future or from acting really weird on David Letterman. The thing is he kind of gets a free ride because he is supposedly so interesting or that he is alternative, but what he really happens to be is a very creepy man that in real life you would want nothing to do with. Just because someone isn’t trying to do something creepy to you doesn’t mean that they are not a creep, and Crispin Glover is the perfect example of this.

10 Of The Worst Sex Tips Ever From Women's Magazines

10 Of The Worst Sex Tips Ever From Women's Magazines

Women's magazines have told us to do really weird things in bed over the years. Here are some of the worst sex tips from women's magazines of past and present.

Women's magazines get a lot of flak for being a bit crazy at times. Though they often raise great points in terms of relationship and sex advice, the truth is that even the greatest magazines out there will occasionally slip up and come up with advice that is totally off-kilter, weird, or downright hilariously bad.

Bad sex advice is everywhere - and sometimes, even pros may get fooled. One can only imagine how bad some of the outcomes of this bad sex advice could have been with the poor people who tried these. For your own sake, you might want to avoid trying out the following sex tips - even if someone you know may have shared that advice via email or Facebook.

"Lick the soft spot in front of his ears."

Uh, wait. Guys have a soft spot in front of their ears? I thought that section was skull...or like, these chubby things people call cheeks? Could we have an anatomy lesson, here? I think someone forgot what a human head looks like.

Or, you know, maybe they forgot what species they were working for when they were writing this thing. It kind of sounds like a sex tip Liono from Thundercats would use.

"Take a tennis ball and roll it with slight pressure between his shoulders and over his butt to help him release pent-up sexual energy."

We're not kidding, people. This is a legitimate tip that was published in an old issue of Cosmopolitan. I don't know about you, but I don't really feel comfortable using tennis balls as part of sex.

Also, what kind of guy has pent up sex energy between his shoulders? At least, with the butt part, that makes sense.

"Firmly hold the bottom of his shaft in one hand and slowly push it towards the base. (Imagine you're pushing his penis into his body)."

If you literally are trying to push a man's penis into his body, you probably don't understand how sex is supposed to work. He's not a transformer robot. You can't make him turn into a girl, and if anything, this might just feel really uncomfortable.

This hilariously bad tip regularly gets called one of the worst sex tips from women's magazines as a whole. We can see why.

"Very softly bite the skin of his scrotum."

This reader-submitted tip appeared in yet another issue of Cosmopolitan, and we have to at least point out that the magazine writers weren't the ones who came up with that idea. That being said, we'd be terrified if we felt teeth down there as men.

In terms of being able to get guys into the ER, this is one of the best sex tips out there. However, in terms of being able to get guys into the idea of sleeping with you, this is one of the worst sex tips ever suggested in history.

"Head to the local Indian restaurant or try a new recipe together - the spicier the better. Studies found that ginseng and saffron, in particular, are two spices proven to enhance bedroom performance."

This tip, which came right from SHAPE, has its heart in the right place. You should take care of your body and diet right in order to ensure that you can perform well in bed. Indian food also happens to be very healthy, so there's that, too.

However, going to an Indian restaurant probably isn't a good idea if you're trying to get laid. Indian food is incredibly filling, is easy to overindulge in, and trying to bounce up and down during sex may make certain things come back up.

We love the idea of bringing fitness and nutrition into the world of sex tips, but for the love of all that is holy, you might want to actually think about them being realistic.

"Bring your lover on your food shopping excursion. View it as sensual foreplay. You can have a lot of fun caressing and gently squeezing foods and inhaling their aromas. The conversation should be entertaining, too."

This gem appeared in SheKnows, and anyone who has ever taken their lover food shopping can tell you that it's really not that erotic. More often than not, it's scrambling to get all the items you need without forgetting things - just like every other food shopping trip you've ever taken.

That being said, if you can turn it into foreplay, I will be impressed with your skill. If you do decide to get pervy in the grocery store, you should probably expect to get stares. You might even end up having a kid nearby ask his mom what you're pretending to do to that zucchini.

Oh, and you may get banned from Trader Joe's. Isn't that sexy?

"Make two fists around my shaft and twist them in opposite directions as hard as you can."

This sex tip first appeared in Cosmopolitan, and since then it has gone viral - and for good reason. This really bad sex tip has been inspiring people to write about bad sex tips because it literally is telling you to give your partner an Indian Rug Burn on the most sensitive part of his body.

Many sexperts say that this might just be the worst sex tip in magazine history. In fact, it even sparked an entire article on Cracked about the sex tips published in magazines that would land you in the hospital.

That being said, if you do choose to use this sex tip, you will make your man scream. However, his screams will not be pleasurable; they will be telling you to get him an ambulance.

This only goes to show you that the worst tips from women's magazines often make for the best comedy.

"Making him a snack after sex. It doesn't have to be a gourmet meal – a simple grilled cheese or milk and cookies will do."

Glamour magazine was the one that penned this pearl, and to be fair, it would probably go over well with the guy. The only problem with this is that it's kind of a 1950s-ish tip that makes the girl basically act like a house servant to a guy, and that this tip was actually noted as a way to "lock him down."

The same article that spawned this bad sex tip also ended up being retracted, with the magazine's editors releasing the following apology and statement:

We understand that the list read like a 1950s marriage handbook – and nobody wants to go back there. That being said, we'll always be here to help you decode dating. So let's be clear: You're welcome to make a grilled cheese for anyone you love, but you shouldn't be whipping one up in an effort to lock the all-important 'him' down. (That's just a waste of Gruyere.)

What we want for you is love based on equality, not indentured servitude with date night. We're sorry for slipping off message. And speaking of slipping, please, please ignore that beer-right-out-of-the-shower thing. It feels like it could get dangerous fast."

You know things are pretty darned bad when the editors of a magazine actually have to step in to apologize for what they said.

"My girlfriend gets a glazed donut and sticks my penis through the hole. She nibbles around it, stopping to suck me every once in a while. The sugar beads from her mouth tingle on my tip."

 

This confession became Cosmopolitan's worst notorious sex tip, primarily because it just doesn't work, looks hilarious, and could also possibly cause yeast infections and UTIs - depending on the man's cleanliness.

Colloquially, it's known as "The Donut Trick," and it's spawned a huge number of articles mocking the magazine's sex tips section. Some have even used it to illustrate the insane disassociation that there seems to be between men and women.

Though some of Cosmopolitan's advice has been spot-on, the Donut Trick was not one of those sex tips that actually helps women rule the bedroom. It's only excellent when it comes to adding humor to sex. Besides, not all guys can actually fit in a donut hole, anyway.

"Pick up a box of drugstore hair color (the kind that eventually washes out) and go to town on each other. You'll get that sexy hands-on-the-scalp feeling along with the risky excitement of not knowing quite how it's going to turn out."

This gloriously awful sex tip was found in the pages of Women's Healthand man, it leaves us speechless.

Hair color and sex do not work out well. That "tingle" you feel dyeing each other's hair is actually your scalp burning. Moreover, getting frisky while dyeing your hair is a good way to dye your pristine white bathroom walls brown, blue, black, red, or pink.

Also, if you have ever seen the kind of sheer panic women tend to have when they're not sure how their hair will turn out, you already know that this isn't so much a sex tip as it is a form of psychological torture.

What's scary about this is that this is one of the worst sex tips from women's magazines. Like, they should know their demographic well enough to not suggest a form of torture on them. Really, Women's Health?


Barber Arrested After Giving Dude Awful ‘Three Stooges’ Haircut

Barber Arrested After Giving Dude Awful ‘Three Stooges’ Haircut

When I was in middle school my mom decided to take me to a hairstylist who had a very heavy Russian accent. I of course had no problem with this. My only problem was that she thought I had just enlisted into the Russian army because that’s the exact type of haircut she gave me. I cried when I got home as I prepared to be even more unpopular at school. And the reason I’ve confessed that humiliating story is because one barber recently got thrown behind bars for doing a shitty haircut.

46-year-old hairstylist, Khaled A. Shabani was arrested after he gave a 22-year-old a terrible haircut. According to police spokesman Joel DeSpain, the victim told officers that Shabani asked him to stop moving his head during the haircut. Shabani then proceeded to cut the victim’s ear with the clippers before running them down the middle of the man’s head on their shortest attachment, “leaving him looking a bit like Larry from ‘The Three Stooges.’”

Oh boy. I just hope this dude wasn’t getting a haircut before a big first date.

Shabani was handcuffed, but he has now pleaded not guilty to disorderly conduct. Shabani also told officers that it was an accident. Yeah, that is no accident. No word yet on what the victim’s hair looks like now, but here’s hoping he just shaved it all off and has started from scratch.

6 Of The Worst Promotional Puns For Movies

6 Of The Worst Promotional Puns For Movies

What’s worse than a bad movie? The outrageously bad promotional campaigns movie execs think will trick us into watching their film. Not all movies on this list are bad, per se. But their taglines definitely are.

 

1. "We’re Back, Pitches" - Pitch Perfect 2

(source)

Oh Bellas, was this really necessary? While the tagline was very painful, it was also quite perfect... pitch perfect.

 

2. "Beaches ain’t ready for this" - Baywatch

(source)

’Memba when these billboards were plastered all over town like five months before the movie actually came out? So cringey seeing those when I was out with my girls bae... watching.

 

3. "Rest in beast" - Werewolf

(source)

Described as "Inept, highly flawed and unintentionally hilarious" by Maynard’s Horror Movie Diary, this movie might have the worst tagline ever with "Rest in beast". Also, were you a-were that "wolf" is singular and "wolves" is plural?

 

4. "Two Agents. One City. No Merci." - From Paris with Love

(source)

Featuring a bald and bearded John Travolta, this action flick gave the world one horrendous tagline. I don’t even want to do my own bad pun. Let’s just state it again: "Two agents. One city. No Merci."

 

5. "The wait is ogre" - Shrek the Third

(source)

The Shrek franchise is a repeat offender. Let’s take a walk down mammary lane. Did I do that right?

(source)

6. "Ooze gonna save us?" - Monsters vs. Aliens

(source)

Do kids actually like this? Is that why so many animated features have puns in their slogans? Children of the world, speak up!

 

6. "Kiss your ice goodbye" - Ice Age

21 People Describe The Most Traumatizing Horrors They've Ever Experienced

21 People Describe The Most Traumatizing Horrors They've Ever Experienced

While all sorts of terrifying events leave their scars on people, both emotionally and mentally, it takes only creepy sounds or scary sights to haunt a person forever. In an instant, a sight or a sound can change someone. Though many times scary images and sounds suggest something supernatural, most of the Reddit users below detail everyday lives interrupted by gruesome tragedies. These are the creepy stories that remind everyone of how easily fate and circumstance can disturb the tranquility of day-to-day existence. You may not be able to fathom many of the unsettling tales these Redditors speak of, but you'll never forget them after this.


Online Dating Woes: 8 Most Common Tinder Horror Stories

Online Dating Woes: 8 Most Common Tinder Horror Stories

Whether you’re looking to hook up or find a real match, here are some of the inevitable weirdos you’re destined to meet while using Tinder!

Regarding the famous *or should I say infamous?* dating app Tinder, Claire* says: “I made the account, and then deleted it 5 minutes later!” Why? The truth is, for every one person raving about the phone app, there are about 10 others shuddering at the memory of creepy Tinder experiences.

For those who have been living under a rock, Tinder is a dating app for your phone that encourages matches based on a picture and a blurb of a profile. You swipe left if you never want to see them again, and swipe right for further interaction.

While the use of technology to wrangle a date is hardly new, Tinder has certainly paved the way for a new generation of blind dates–and the results aren’t always impressive! With over 50 million users, you can see why there may be a few bumps in the road.

The worst things Tinder users have to put up with

We’ve reached out to some Tinder users and zeroed in on some of the most common dating mishaps that come from using this sexy app to help you be more cautious in the future.

*Some names have been changed to protect the innocent… and the embarrassed!

 

 

#1 The “I’m just in this to shag” date. Tinder was initially designed–and certainly maintains the reputation–as a hookup app. If you’re looking to use Tinder to meet your forever love, your best bet is to make your intentions clear to your date before you actually hook up!

 

 

#2 The married date. According to Wired.com, as of May 2015, the estimated number of SINGLE Tinder users was a mere 54%! That means that 46% of this dating app’s users are married or taken in some capacity.

Speaking of her first Tinder date, Tasha* says: “I met him at a local pub. He was friendly and handsome, and it looked promising. But then I noticed the ring on his finger.” As it turns out, her handsome “right swipe” turned out to be an out-of-towner pilot who was married–with children.

“When I balked at that, he tried to sell me some cock-and-bull story about how he’s not trying to cheat or anything *heavens no!*, but that he just likes to meet local people where he goes to pass the time.” Sure. “Local people.” Women, chiefly. On Tinder.

 

 

#3 The “I love drama” date. Some people love Tinder for the drama that can be involved. While some non-singles have Tinder simply out of curiosity or to cheat, others love being able to use the app to make their current mates jealous.

Brian* relates, “I met a girl off Tinder, then it turned out she had a boyfriend… and it turned into some huge drama. I stopped responding to her texts and just ignored her, and then a day later, she texted me and tried to start sh*t. She even got her boyfriend to start texting me.”

If you feel your Tinder swipe may be in it for drama inspiration, run away!

 

 

#4 The no-show date. Have you ever posted an ad for a $20 dresser on Craigslist and got a million and one ads saying that the potential buyer is coming to get it “Immediately!” only to have them never show? Unfortunately, this can be the case with Tinder dates. Without the exchange of money, we hope!

This happened to one Tinder user, Mark, who says plainly, “I had a coffee date… she didn’t show up.” Since Tinder is photo-based, you won’t have to worry about them no-showing you on account of your looks. No. They don’t do it because of you, they do it because they can! Whether it’s nerves or just plain rudeness, you may just wind up with a no-show.

 

 

#5 The “I know you from somewhere” run-in. Hey, be careful where you swipe that thing! Famously, the gimmick of Tinder swiping decides your potential dating pool. Swipe to the left and they’re gone for good, and swipe to the right and they’ve become a consideration. Just remember not to get too trigger happy…

Jason* learned this the hard way. He explains, “I’m a self-described power swiper. I swipe right all the time and sort later. Well, one time I was eating lunch with my buds at a local coffee shop, and lo and behold, one of my matches who I missed filtering recognized my face. She comes over and asks if I recognize her, to which I say no. She then proceeds to sit down at the table and berate me for not recognizing her face. After she left, I made sure to un-match.” Whoops!

 

 

#6 The absolutely crazy date. Every so often online, no matter what digital dating avenue you choose, you will inevitably go out to dinner/coffee/drinks with someone who is off their gourd.

According to Ashely, “This guy said he had worked in Area 51 at Roswell and had a very high security clearance, but was very cagey about what he did in the UK *he was British*. He sounded interesting, so I agreed to a dinner date. This turned out to be a big mistake. He spent the whole meal telling me in a loud voice that aliens lived near the earth’s core and come out of special holes in the ground. He said that the aliens people had seen were really extra-terrestrials in heat resistant suits!”

 

#7 The jerk. Guys are dogged when it comes to pursuing Tinder cuties, and vice-versa! It seems the art of persuasiveness is not lost to Tinder users, and not everybody likes the persistence. Beth sums it up with her experience: “Tinder matches almost immediately troll or send corny pick-up lines, and they move on fast. Most guys are on for hook-ups, and there are a lot of tourists on there. A lot of the guys are rude and cocky!”

 

 

 

#8 The “you don’t look like your picture” date. Lying about your appearance is one of the most common occurrences with online dating. Jason says, “There is a high risk of meeting someone who leads you on. Sometimes, they turn out to be a Catfish, and some can be a lot older than they say.”

Amy backs up this claim with her Tinder date night, saying, “This guy had written ‘well-built’ on his profile. I asked him specifically if he had a heavy build. He said no and insisted on meeting me for dinner at a really posh place. I agreed. Mistake. When his car rolled up in the car park, the suspension was down on one side. When he got out, it went up… as he was at least 300 lbs.”

While someone is definitely still worth getting to know even if they’re a couple of pounds heavier than their photo, being lied to right off the bat isn’t the best way to start your date.

 

 


The 10 Worst Movies Of 2017

The 10 Worst Movies Of 2017

 

In 2017, lousy movies popped up all over the place. No week went by without a movie or three to leave us wondering when, exactly, Hollywood lost the ability to distinguish good from godawful. Mining old TV shows for gold doesn't seem like such a hot idea when the result is Baywatch or CHiPs or My Little Pony: The Movie. What genius thought we had it in us to endure a fifth Pirates of the Caribbean epic? Who told Vin Diesel we wanted to see xXx: The Return of Xander Cage?

There was more – believe me, there was muchmore. Director Guy Ritchie proved the Knights of Round Table were played out in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword; anyone who willing paid to see Geostorm, Rough Night, The Snowman, The Circle or Tulip Fever is his or her own worst enemy. Audiences were given a pathetic prequel inKong: Skull Island: a flat remake of Flatliners: a silly sequel made of Legos (Ninjago); a jumbled Justice League that did no one justice; and a far-from great The Great Wall, a $150 million U.S.-Chinese coproduction starring Matt Damon that made it look like both countries had forgotten everything they once knew about how to make an epic monster mash.

Amazingly, these turkeys didn’t even make the cut for our list of the Worst Movies of 2017. Here are the 10 films that reside at the very bottom of the barrel. Watch 'em and weep.

10. 'The Emoji Movie'

Audiences and critics joined together to hate on this animated farce about a Meh emoji (voiced by T.J. Miller), who thinks he can't survive being just one thing. It's OK for Poop (Patrick Stewart), Smiler (Maya Rudolph) and Hi-5 (James Corden), but Meh needs colors, layers, variety. So does this movie, which doesn't get them. We need an emoji for movie hell. Any suggestions?

9. 'Suburbicon'

Director George Clooney, working from a script originated by the Coen brothers, turns out the year's most gutting disappointment. With this kind of talent involved – plus an A-list cast headed by Matt Damon, Julianne Moore and Oscar Isaac – audiences had a right to expect more than a well-intentioned lampoon of whites-only 1950's suburbia. The frustration intensifies when Clooney tacks on a deadly earnest subplot about an African-American family that intrudes on the Caucasian American Dream. Though the incident is loosely based on the race riots sparked when a black family moved into the all-white suburb of Levittown, Pa, in 1957, the tonal shift is jarring. Is replacing satire with sermonizing ever a good idea? Here, it's a bona fide death knell.

8. 'Daddy's Home 2'

The booby prize for the most mirthless of holiday comedies goes to this undeserved hit that poses as family fun while disseminating jokes about gun violence, homophobia and sexual harassment. Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell hit career nadirs in the roles of a dad and a stepdad, respectively. (God help the children.) Their characters are joined by their own fathers, played by a leering, mean-spirited Mel Gibson and a sugary sweet John Lithgow. The sight of a great cast hard-selling a grating script is the equivalent of getting a kick in the teeth for Christmas. The Grinch couldn't have planned a more depressing buzz kill.

7. 'Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets'

From The Professional to The Fifth Element, filmmaker Luc Besson has shown the style and ambition to overcome his tin ear for dialogue and create his own kind of visual nirvana. Not this time. Not by a longshot. Starring a miscast Dane DeHaan as Major Valerian, a special-ops agent assigned to maintain order in the universe, and a smirking Cara Delevingne as his way ballsier partner Sergeant Laureline, this sci-fi fantasy – based on a series of French graphic novels by Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézières – drags on for an interminable 137 minutes. Even zowie production design, better-than usual 3-D and a feisty cameo from Rihanna can't get you through the fog of this bore.

6. 'The Mountain Between Us'

The year's dullest, dimmest, zero-chemistry romance ironically stars two of the most charismatic actors in the business – Kate Winslet and Idris Elba. She’s a photojournalist and he's a neurosurgeon. They're strangers who fall in love when their private plane goes down in a blizzard. So naturally, there's no choice but to have sex by a roaring fire in a convenient cabin that happens to materialize just when the audience gets tired of watching the stars death-march through the blinding snow or duck random cougar attacks. How the skilled Dutch-Palestinian director Hany Abu-Assad (Paradise Now, Omar) found himself at the helm of a tearjerker as noxious as Charles Martin's bestseller is another example of what happens when talent gets distracted – not by art, but by a mirage they see in the form of a large paycheck. Audiences stayed away in droves.

5. 'The Mummy'

What is Tom Cruise doing to destroy his career? Making craptacular flops like this. Once intended by Universal studios to launch a series of Dark Universe films (including revamps of characters like Jekyll & Hyde, the Invisible Man and the Bride of Frankenstein), The Mummy stalled that idea at the starting gate. Cruise doesn't even play the title role; that chore goes to Algerian actress Sofia Boutella, cast as an evil Egyptian princess who's back from dead after 3,000 years. She needs Cruise's character, an antiquities dealer, to house her buddy Set, the god of the dead. The movie, however, is D.O.A. Every digital trick in the book – and director Alex Kurtzman desperately pulls out all the stops – can't bring this cinematic corpse to life.

4. 'Song to Song'

Though it kills me to admit it, art films can be just as awful as formulaic Hollywood swill. Such is the case with this exercise in self-parody from master filmmaker Terrence Malick. Set against the Austin, Texas music scene, the film focuses on two couples: Ryan Gosling and Rooney Mara play struggling songwriters. And Michael Fassbender is the predatory music mogul who ensares them both, plus a naïve waitress (Natalie Portman), in his web. The zombified actors mope around whispering their banal thoughts in voiceover until you want to scream, "Make it stop!" And this from the once untouchable film titan who gave us Badlands, Days of Heaven, The Thin Red Line and The Tree of Lifebefore his visual grandeur turned to grandiosity. Sad. Sad. Sad.

3. 'Fifty Shades Darker'

Gorgeous naked bodies writhing in ecstasy and getting off with the best sex toys money can buy. How do you make that dull? Step right up for the sequel to 2015's Fifty Shades of Greywhich somehow succeeds in being even more sanitized and sadistically dull. Jamie Dornan once again stars as billionaire Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson is back as Anastasia Steele, a digital magazine up-and-comer with a limited vocabulary and a willingness to let Christian spank her. If you thought these two actors looked embarrassed the first time they put on nipple clamps, you ain't seen nothing yet. (The talented Johnson deserves way better.) The bestselling E.L. James novels that both films are based on actually suggested there might be something to learn from what connects a dominant and a submissive. You won't find that in this film, which always finds it better not to think.

2. 'The Dark Tower'

The writing of Stephen King can morph into fierce, frightening, deeply felt cinema. Take, for example: Carrie, The Shining, The Shawshank Redemption, Stand By Me, Misery and It, just to name a few. The Dark Tower, based on the author's series of eight mythical, metaphorical novels, had enormous possibilities. But the film version, starring Idris Elba as the Gunslinger and Matthew McConaughey as his nemesis, the Man in Black, blows them all. If you want to know how to do everything wrong in book-to-screen adaptation, this model of incompetence makes for a perfect Exhibit A.

1. 'Transformers: The Last Knight'

The Michael Bay Award for the Worst Movie of 2017 (TM) goes to – wait for it – Michael Bay, courtesy of this fifth toys-to-men epic. (If you're looking for a franchise that remains unbeatable for creative ineptitude, dramatic incoherence, brain-numbing noise pollution and cynical exploitation, this series is a hall-of-famer champ.). The bottom of the toxic Transformers barrel, The Last Knightfeels untouched by human hands, a directorial hallmark. The plot suggests that the giant 'bots began back in the Dark Ages and somehow did valiant transforming things throughout history, like help fight the Nazis. But now, the heroic Optimus Prime has gone rogue and the evil Megatron (Frank Welker) wants to destroy Earth. Too bad there's no one around to save audiences from Bay’s junkyard of clichés. The good news is that Knight is the lowest grossing chapter in the series. Did the public get woke? Wahlberg says he won't return for any sequels. We should all follow suit.

8 Awful Ways To Die That Actually Happened To People

Death. It happens to us all and sometimes at the most unfortunate times. People have died during contests, while visiting theme parks, and even after winning the lottery.

There are millions of ways to die. These might be the oddest, most awful and the positively terrible ways to check out.

Here are eight awful ways to die that actually happened to people.

Death by Piranha – The young man who jumped into a lake infested with piranhas

The incident happened in the town of Rosario del Yata, Bolivia in 2011 and was met with horrifying reactions from people. The 18 year old kid was drunk when he decided to jump from his canoe into the lake infested with piranhas. The attack from the deadly fishes eventually led to him bleeding to death. On investigation, it was discovered that the reason might have been suicide for he was a known fisherman in the region. Contrary to popular belief, it’s actually rare to hear about piranhas killing people but unfortunately that wasn’t the case for this young man.

Death by Beard – The man who died after tripping on his own beard

Hans Steininger was known in the 1560’s for having one of the longest beards in the world. His beard measured a staggering 4.2 feet in length. But the one thing that he was most proud of also led to his misfortune. He had a habit of keeping his beard rolled up in a leather pouch so that it wouldn’t impede his movement. But one day, he forgot to do so and unluckily for him a fire broke out. While trying to run out of the building he tripped on his beard and broke his neck from the fall. Certainly one of the strangest ways to go!

Death by wedding photograph - The bride who drowned during her photo shoot

It’s extremely sad to hear about someone dying right after their wedding because in many ways marriage is the beginning of a new life for most. A 30 year old beautiful woman, however, was met with misfortune when she decided to get more wedding photographs weeks after her marriage. The incident happened at the Ouareau River near Montreal. She was standing in the water while her pictures were being taken. The concept of the photo shoot was based on the popular “Trash the Dress” style. Her wedding dress started soaking in more water and started weighing her down. She asked the photographer to help her get out but the heaviness of the fabric ultimately caused her to sink and drown.

Death by wedgie – The man who got strangled by his underwear

Though it sounds like a hilarious way to die, the truth is that this incident was highly deplorable. A man in Oklahoma got his underwear pulled over his head by his step son. However, the wedgie wasn’t given to incite laughter. The intention behind was pretty dark. Both the stepson and the victim got into a fight and the former knocked the latter unconscious. After he saw his step father knocked out on the ground, he pulled his underwear over his head and left him there. Examination of the body revealed that the victim died not only from the blunt force trauma to his head but also due to asphyxiation.

Death by Resurrection – The woman who was wrongly declared dead

The woman was wrongly declared dead by doctors in Russia and on her funeral day, she suddenly woke up from her unconscious stage. Upon realization that she is in a coffin and that people might bury her alive, she screamed trying to get people’s attention. Sadly, the entire situation caused her to go into shock which led to a heart attack. She was later declared to be dead leaving her husband in an absolute devastating state.

Death by irony – The man who was drowned at a party for lifeguards

A man in New Orleans drowned in the pool while attending a party for lifeguards. The occasion was set to celebrate the fact that they had their first drowning-free swimming season in recent times. When the party ended, guests noticed a body at the bottom of the pool. Though the man himself wasn’t a lifeguard, there were four certified lifeguards at the party. Unfortunately, no one saw the victim in trouble and by the time they found out, it was too late. Another instance of an ironic death involved a man who shouted “F*$k Alligators”, only to be later eaten by one. But that is a story for another day.

Death by cow-fall - The man who died after a cow fell on him while sleeping

This is one of the more bizarre instances where someone died in a manner that no one would ever think possible. Joao Maria De Souza was sleeping in his bedroom when suddenly a cow fell through his roof and on to him. The cow was believed to have climbed up the roof which abutted a steep hillside and came crashing down after the roof was unable to support its weight. The animal fell nearly 8 feet down and on to the unsuspecting victim. Though his wife who was sleeping next to him managed to come out of this with minor injuries, the man unfortunately died. Remember the scene in twister with the flying cow. It seems there is no need to have a natural disaster to make cows fall on you from above.

Death by stupidity – The ancient Greek philosopher who threw himself into a volcano

We owe a lot to the ancient philosophers of Greece but it seems they had their fair share of morons too. According to legend, Empedocles threw himself into a volcano in Siciliy convinced that he would turn into an immortal god. Or at least that’s what he wanted people to think. Unsurprisingly, he found out that volcanoes are not concerned about what humans think. The volcano rightfully dealt with the stupidity of mankind by incinerating Empedocles and spitting out on his sandals to make absolutely sure that no one believed his ascension to godhood. To pay respect to volcanoes everywhere, man later named an underwater volcano after Empedocles.

15 Anti-Bucket List Items People Will Never Do Again

15 Anti-Bucket List Items People Will Never Do Again

A wise man has a list of things he wants to do before he dies. A wiser man has a list of things he will never do again.

1. This is why I always shudder when in Game of Thrones characters are in like a carriage to somewhere, shit's gotta take like months, ApplesPeaches

Be in a car for 22 hrs straight. I will murder someone if I get stuck in a car for that long again.

2. WesSnipes you have just ensured I chug a fuckton of water today

Pass a kidney stone.

Started in my side / back, felt like I was struck by lightning. After about 3 hours of that, I called 911 thinking I might pass out from the pain, still having no clue what was going on. I think I lost 2 gallons of sweat, crew arrived and found me balled up on the carpet, drenched, and called it immediately - "kidney stone".

Had a female doc at the hospital who told me she's had kids and had kidney stones and that stones were more painful.

And mine was small.

3. InterdepartmentalEmu, there are literally so many other things you could've done

Dump a spoonful of instant coffee down my throat. I had a paper that I REALLY needed to do and thought it would wake me up. It turned to mud in my throat and I couldn't breathe for a minute. Quite the wake up call.

4. Hey, at least now you know egoburger

Put an ecstasy pill up my butt

5. Didn't even know mouth sharts were something I had to worry about in life. Thanks a lot, nanna_mouse

I went to cough yesterday and threw up in my hand. It was like the oral equivalent of a shart.

So... that.

6. TheSexyMicrowave

I had a shot of bacon vodka, it was possibly the most disgusting thing I ever tasted.

7. Why can't we just be put under for literally everything I'm too big of a baby for anything like this. From Travix1516

Six injections underneath my toe nail to numb it in preparation for getting an in grown toenail removed.

8. Sure they are, lizzyb187. Sure they are

I don't want to eat beets or have anal sex again. the two are unrelated.

9. Lynch31337 I hope you never get things pumped into your ass again. Unless you want them in of course.

Have a barium enema. It is uncomfortable both physically and mentally.

It didn't help that the nurse who put the nozzle into my rear was incredibly good looking.

The entire experience of having my colon filled with barium while people (including hottie) watched on an X-ray, followed by having the table shifted around so the barium would coat every last internal crevice, and then finally having the hottie remove the nozzle while a few liters of barium tried to escape me is not one I ever wish to experience again.

I subsequently evacuated so violently it broke their toilet and flooded the bathroom and part of a hallway with my ass barium. I'll pass on doing that again too.

10. 10/10 would not climb into, roncoobi3

Climb in my septic tank to clean a block to my drain field.

11. Sunaeli, you can always poop and pee in caves c'mon now. That's what caves are for

Caving. It was horrific. I'm not a super claustrophobic person (just your average hmm that's a tight space joe) but caving was genuinely terrible. Add in knowing you can't use the bathroom for several hours and that if the whole thing collapses you're dead, and it made for a terrible experience

12. You had my curiosity, ckthorp. But now you have my attention

Carbonated milk from a soda siphon/sodastream. Never ever again.

13. Beware, beware the hellish nightmare. From shitpost-scrub

Work another retail job

14. lydzhere dropping some more career advice on you clowns

Accept a position solely for the salary. Money isn't everything, folks. If you spend 40+ hours a week at your job, finding a career/position that makes you happy is worth far more.

15. Yeah...I get that. Via Siriusly_-_Black

Snorting Kool-aid powder (I was 12)

 


A Tough-To-Watch Shark Video Results In Arrests

A Tough-To-Watch Shark Video Results In Arrests

 

Florida anglers who allegedly filmed themselves brutally dragging a shark behind their boat at high speeds are now facing felony charges. Robert Benac, 28, Michael Wenzel, 21, and Spencer Heintz, 23, have been charged with aggravated animal cruelty in Florida for the video that surfaced five months ago, reports the Bradenton Herald. The video went viral after it was emailed to renowned shark fisherman Mark Quartiano, who posted it to Instagram while condemning the men's actions, reports the Miami Herald. The men in the video can be heard laughing as the shark is violently whipped around. One also laughs as it sounds like he points out the shark is nearly dead. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission then launched an investigation that culminated in this week's arrests.

"As we've said since this video and other images came to light, these actions have no place in Florida, where we treasure and conserve our natural resources for everyone," says FWC Chairman Bo Rivard in a release. Gov. Rick Scott denounced the shark's treatment as "inhumane" and said he was sickened by the video. FWC investigators say they were able to identify the men thanks in part to people who knew them and came forward. Benac and Wenzel face additional misdemeanor charges of using an illegal method to take a shark. In poring over the men's social media postings, investigators also uncovered clips of anglers firing guns at sharks.

24 Awful Things Frats Did That Got Them Kicked Off Campus

 

24 Awful Things Frats Did That Got Them Kicked Off Campus

The shock factor of fraternity scandals is waning; every couple of weeks, it seems a new hazing ritual or act of accidental violence lands Greek Life a new spot on America’s shame list. You’d think the most educated youngsters in the 21st century would be above racial chants and illicit, sexually aggressive slam books, right? Think again. This list of fraternity scandals and hazing-gone-wrong will leave you feeling befuddled about the building blocks of brotherhood.
It's sad that a select few chapters have given fraternities as a whole such a bad rap. But when these chapters based on commitment and brotherhood publicly abuse pledges, violently haze people, force members and party goers to black out, and talk openly and casually about sexual assault, bad things are going to happen - university reputations are compromised, affected students suffer psychologically, families suffer, and most importantly and tragically, kids lose their lives.

Aside from shedding light on some of the horrific fraternity culture running rampant throughout college campuses across the US, this list is also a reminder of how dimwitted and negligent people can be. What in your right mind would make you think it’s okay to post racist pictures of yourself (accompanied by racial hashtags) on social media? Why would you EVER email/ document thoughts or jokes about rape? P.S. Those questions are hypothetical.

So prepare yourself to be flabbergasted, but not that surprised, by the ludicrous and horrifying facts about the worst fraternities out there.

 


15 Unsettling Facts That'll Leave You Shook

15 Unsettling Facts That'll Leave You Shook

 

 

Usually, learning is a fun experience that expands your mind and gives you a new conversation starter.

Unfortunately, these little tidbits of information are less enjoyable and more, how would you put it? Ah yes, terrifying.

We hope you're buckled in for this bumpy wisdom-filled thrill ride, 'cause you're about to see how deep the rabbit hole goes (spoiler alert: it goes too deep).

1. rclatter:

The entire Universe outside our galaxy could have completely disappeared over 20,000 years ago and we still wouldn't know it yet. Our view of the Universe is actually what it looked like anywhere from thousands to Billions of years ago -with no way to see what it actually looks like "right now". Imagine if you looked out your front window and saw your yard as it was 6 months ago, neighbors house across the street a year ago, and houses a block or two away as they were several years ago. Also off in the distance you see the glaciers from the last ice age. That's what it's like looking out at the Universe.

2. brijjen:

That right now, this very moment, someone is trapped against their will, probably suffering at the hands of someone else, and wondering if anyone "out there" is thinking about them or remembers them.

3. KissyKillerKitty:

According to a recent Furtwangen study, your kitchen sponge is as clean as turd

4. Wisdom_from_the_Ages:

We are alive at what the overwhelmingly vast majority of the universe will know as the "extremely distant past" - 13 billion years into something that could very well make a trillion years look like the blink of an eye. If the Universe was a download, it would be another 80 billion years before we get to 1% of the amount of time it takes a very small star to go through its hydrogen.

Yep. You and I are alive at the beginning. Not the middle, not the end. We are the bacteria.

5. Soggy_Diaperz:

That if you have clothes in your wardrobe and food in your fridge, you're in the richest 20% of people in the world. Something so simple would categorise you above 80% of people in the world...

Edit: if you'd like to make a difference please check out wordvision.org, actionagainsthunger.org, or savethechildren.org. Even a small donation could make a dent in the percentages!

6. Wishyouamerry:

Every year you unknowingly pass the future anniversary of your death.

Is it today?

7. adjectivebeforenoun:

You can think about moving your hand, and it wont move

But when you want to move u hand it just moves

8. Blazer666:

I test schools' water for lead. Millions of children across the United States, many people here included, are being exposed to absurdly high levels of lead. This leads to behavior and learning problems, lower IQ, hyperactivity, slowed growth, hearing problems, and anemia. If not for yourself, for the sake of your children, please use filters at home.

9. grapefuitonmyshaft:

The 1961 atomic bombing accident of North Carolina. "The US Air Force came dramatically close to detonating an atom bomb over North Carolina that would have been 260 times more powerful than the device that devastated Hiroshima.

Two Mark 39 hydrogen bombs were accidentally dropped over Goldsboro, North Carolina on the 23rd of January 1961. The bombs fell to earth after a B-52 bomber broke up in mid-air, and one of the devices behaved precisely as a nuclear weapon was designed to behave in warfare: its parachute opened, its trigger mechanisms engaged, and only ONE low-voltage switch prevented untold carnage.

Of the four safety mechanisms designed to prevent unintended detonation, three failed to operate properly. When the bomb hit the ground, a firing signal was sent to the nuclear core of the device, and it was only that final, highly vulnerable switch that averted calamity."

I get goosebumps everytime I read about it.

Man Pleads Guilty To Having Sex With Dead Woman - He Thought It Would Wake Her Up

Man Pleads Guilty To Having Sex With Dead Woman - He Thought It Would Wake Her Up

 

ozens of times a day across Connecticut, prosecutors give judges a thumbnail version of a crime as defendants plead guilty.

On Tuesday at Superior Court in Danielson, that routine recitation caused a bit of a stir as Aaron Graser, 39, pleaded guilty to fourth-degree sexual assault and violation of probation.

Graser, the prosecutor told the judge, “had sex with a woman who had expired.”

At the word “expired,” several heads snapped as lawyers and defendants waiting for their cases to be called turned to watch, listen more closely, and eyeball Graser.

For his crimes, Graser was sentenced to a year in prison, but was spared placement on the state’s sex offender registry after the judge found “registration is not required for public safety based upon the facts in this case.”

The case began in January, when Willimantic police received a 911 call about an unresponsive woman. Officers arrived and found heroin and needles near the woman and tried without success to revive her. A medical examiner would later tell police the woman was dead before anyone called 911.

The woman was Graser’s girlfriend, and a detective began to question him as others examined the scene inside the apartment. A detective spotted ligature marks on the woman’s wrists and ankles. And Graser wondered aloud to a detective whether they suspected his arrest months earlier for choking the woman could be relevant.

So Graser began to talk. He told detectives he found his girlfriend, unresponsive and tried to wake her up. She was sitting and hunched over on their bed, and heroin and drug paraphernalia were on her lap.

“Aaron stated that he laid the victim down the bed and he rubbed her sternum,” according to the warrant for his arrest. “Aaron stated he listened to see if the victim was breathing and he heard gurgling. Aaron stated he knew the victim hated having sex with him so he figured that the victim might wake up if he had sex with her.”

Questioned further, Graser admitted to detectives that he tied the woman’s ankles and wrists to bed posts “because it was a fetish of his.” After he finished, he untied her, put her pants on and called in his neighbor, a former paramedic who later told police she believed the woman had been dead for a couple of hours.

An autopsy determined that the woman was dead when Graser had sex with her. The ligatures were the key. Had the woman still been alive, there would have been bruises under her skin. No bruises meant no blood was flowing at the time, the medical examiner told police, according to the warrant. As for the gurgling Graser said he heard, that could have been decomposition gases escaping the woman’s body, an investigator from the medical examiner’s office told police.

The woman’s cause of death was determined to be a drug overdose. Toxicology testing revealed high levels of fentanyl, heroin and another synthetic drug.

Graser was initially charged with second-degree sexual assault, but pleaded guilty to the reduced charge of fourth-degree sexual assault of a corpse.

 


This Rejection Letter From 1928 Is Absolutely Brutal

This Rejection Letter From 1928 Is Absolutely Brutal -

 

If you’re a writer who submits your work to publications then you probably know all about rejection — hell, some of the greatest authors out there today were once rejected, too. So you are going to be able to relate to this just-found letter from 1928 that might just be one of the most brutal rejection letter’s we’ve seen.

The Twitter “Letters of Note” shared a typewritten rejection letter written by the publishing house of Angus & Robertson LTD in 1928. The letter, addressed to F.C. Meyer, is right to the point — the point being that Meyer will not be getting published by Angus & Robertson LTD.

Check out the letter below.

 

https://twitter.com/LettersOfNote/status/937342977105637376

 

As you can see the letter reads:

Dear Sir,

No, you may not send us your verses and we will not give you the name of another publisher. We hate no rival publisher sufficiently to ask you to inflict them on him. The specimen poem is simply awful. In fact, we have never seen worse.

Yours faithfully,

Angus & Robertson LTD

Yours faithfully? That’s rough. But don’t worry because there’s some good news: Meyers actually ended up getting published:

And if you’re wondering the type of writer that Meyer was well here is a taste of it:

https://twitter.com/JMaguireCritic/status/937345147708362752

Um…OK…perhaps that publisher was right. I mean, Meyer did get a special historical mention in the 2001 Artscape Terribly Bad Verse & Awful Poetry Competition.

California Teen Admits Molesting Dozens Of Kids Over An Eight Year Period

California Teen Admits Molesting Dozens Of Kids Over An Eight Year Period

A California teen was being held on $1 million bail Monday after police in Riverside say he admitted molesting dozens of children since he was 10 years old.

Police arrested Joseph Hayden Boston, 18, on counts of oral copulation on a child under the age of 10, authorities said.

"This is going to affect not only the victims for a long time, but also our detectives and officers involved in this," Officer Ryan Railsback of Riverside police told KABC-TV. "To hear someone just be very open about what they've done, and they're only 18 themselves."

In a statement, Riverside police say Boston molested two boys, ages 8 and 4, Saturday at the Simply Home Inn and Suites where Boston was staying. The victims, who were staying at the motel with their parents, had been allowed to go into the suspect’s room where the molestation occurred, police said.

Hours later, the suspect called his own mother and told her what he had done, according to the statement. His mother drove to the hotel, picked Boston up and drove him to the police station.

"Officers interviewed the suspect and he confessed to sexually assaulting the two juvenile victims in his motel room," the statement said. "He also admitted to molesting upwards of 50 children since he was 10 years old in different cities where he had lived."

Detectives believe Boston has victimized other children who have not yet come forward and were asking for anyone with information about the suspect or possible victims to contact Riverside police.

Boston has also lived in the Southern California cities of Lakewood and Buena Park, the statement said.

Detectives from the Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Unit were assisting in the investigation. The Riverside County Child Protective Services took custody of the two victims, police said.

Coworkers Teased Suspected Serial Killer About Looking Like A Serial Killer

Coworkers Teased Suspected Serial Killer About Looking Like A Serial Killer

 

Before Howell Emanuel Donaldson III handed a gun to a McDonald’s coworker and drew four murder charges, his coworkers had teased him about looking like the Seminole Heights killer, one of them said.

"We would tease him and say he was the killer, because he looked like the pictures," Gail Rogers, a four-year employee at the McDonald’s in Ybor City, told the Tampa Bay Times.

"I called him the killer to his face," she said. "He didn’t like that."

Rogers said the restaurant manager wasn’t sure what to do when Donaldson handed over a gun in a bag.

"He handed her the gun," Rogers said. "He said he would text her what to do with it. I told her let’s tell the police officer."


15 'Justice League' Questions I Can't Stop Thinking About

15 'Justice League' Questions I Can't Stop Thinking About

We just saw the release of Justice League - the culmination to the first act of the DC Film Universe, bringing together all of the primary heroes that will go on to continue building out DC's slate from here on. The only problem is that, uh, it's not being too well-received by the box office. And while it's largely being blamed on the poor reception of the heavily-hyped Batman v. Superman, that's a little unfortunate, since this film is a much less grim 'n tedious affair.

Still, we have questions about it. A LOT OF QUESTIONS...

1. Are they saying Superman prevented harassment and homelessness?

There's an opening montage in Justice League meant to show us the cost of Superman's sacrifice at the end of Batman v. Superman and the effect his absence has had on Metropolis and the world at large - harassment and crime are up, homeless is up, and generally everyone feels a little more hopeless (so hopeless, that 'Everybody Knows' by Sigrid plays). Except, I honestly have no idea what in the world any of this is in reference to - Superman was BARELY a symbol of hope between Man of Steel and BvS - by BvS, there were a huge amount of people who felt Superman bore some of the responsibility for bringing Zod and his followers to Earth (and the resulting destruction of like fifty 9/11s they wrought) and even more who felt that he was an alien element who was not to be trusted. Hell, they spent a good portion of the film showing that people sincerely believed Superman was gunning down African villages (with "experimental bullets") and blowing up Congress! How was THAT a symbol of hope?!

Beyond that - the montage seems to indicate that all of these bad things are happening because Superman isn't around anymore. WHAT?! Superman's absence is leading to homelessness and crime?! In Batman v. Superman (the last time Superman was an active presence) there was sex trafficking, wanton gang violence, AND plenty of poverty to go around. Superman's existence wasn't doing THAT MUCH to stop these malignant societal issues - so why is the movie pretending his absence has anything to do with them?

2. Wait - so the Parademons are wandering around Gotham, randomly attacking anyone who's "afraid"? But also kidnapping employees of STAR Labs?

The introduction to Batman in the film - involving him using a criminal as bait for parademons - is actually pretty cool, until you consider what the film is implying: the Parademons are just wandering around, totally aimlessly, randomly attacking anyone who "shows fear"?WHAT?! Given Steppenwolf seemingly dispatched them without ANY idea of where the Mother Box entrusted to mankind is hidden (it's in Metropolis, but we see at least one in Gotham) and one attacks the criminal Batman dangles over the building, they're just randomly attacking anyone who is afraid?

But also - they're expliciting targeting employees of STAR Labs?! So, they DO have fairly explicit instructions of who to target and why, but are also attacking random fearful individuals in random cities (the Mother Box they're after is in a different city)? Frankly, I think Steppenwolf needs to get his minions in line.

3. Batman discovers there are aliens invading Gotham - so he immediately takes a two-week trip to Newfoundland to ask a guy who's good at swimming to help him?

"Ah, bug-aliens have invaded my home city and are randomly attacking anyone who is afraid. Better abscond for several weeks, grow a beard, and try to make fishman help me out. No, I have no idea why having a fishman on my team would help with this bug-alien invasion thing, but....seems like a good idea to totally abandon Gotham for several weeks, regardless."

4. The only Mother Box Steppenwolf can't IMMEDIATELY find is one in a closet in an apartment - mayyyybe the Atlanteans and the Amazons shouldn't have placed their Mother Boxes in elaborate special rooms with them on pedestals?

"Ahhhh hey, we have these incredibly important artifacts, and this helmeted axe-guy really wants them. Better keep them in insanely obvious locations that he can easily teleport to (by the way, he can totally teleport with these things called 'boom tubes') and not hide them in any way."

5. Why did Steppenwolf wait until NOW to attack Earth? Why not during ANY PERIOD OF TIME BEFORE SUPERMAN CAME AROUND?

The general explanation for why Steppenwolf chose this moment to attack Earth again was that there were "no Kryptonians" or other protectors, and because fear was at an all-time high (due to Superman's absence). The problem with this thinking is: a) there were also no Kryptonians for the ENTIRE period between his last invasion and 35 years ago (or whenever Superman landed in Kansas), and b) "worldwide fear" is kinda a broad, relative topic, but like...World War II mighta been a pretty fearful time for folks, given it was the largest war ever waged and entered us into the nuclear age. Just saying, Steppenwolf, if you woulda attacked then, you would have had no Kryptonians OR superfast nerds OR robot-football players OR extremely rich furries to deal with (still woulda had to deal with Atlanteans and/or Amazonians though, presumably).

6. What was the point of keeping the Mother Boxes if they weren't going to use them? Why not just DESTROY THE EVIL BOXES THE GIANT AXE MAN DESPERATELY WANTS?

Here's the thing - I'm almost certain the underexplanation of the Mother Boxes is a result of the 2-hour runtime, since there seems to be a LOT MORE going on with them than the movie bothers to explain. Why does Steppenwolf keep referring to them simply as "mother"? Why does he tell Hippolyta that she will love him once the Mother Boxes are reunited? And - most importantly - since NONE of the races that fought to stop Steppenwolf's initial run at the Mother Boxes have bothered to DO anything with them? WHY IS EVERYONE JUST HANGING ONTO THEM?!

It never makes sense why each race didn't DESTROY their respective Mother Box - they serve NO value to any race, and just prove a constant liability in case Steppenwolf returns. If they were serving as a source of power or something, I'd get it - BUT THEY DON'T. They're just lures for a giant CGI axe-man to pop into your world and mess up your shit.

Destroy that shit. Or, uh, hide it in an apartment, which makes them extremely hard to find, for some reason.

7. Why was that Russian family storyline in the movie AT ALL?

To give the audience some semblance of a POV to Steppenwolf's decision to take over some random abandoned Russian nuclear facility as his home base, we are introduced to a Russian family hiding in their tiny home from the swarms of Parademons outside. And what does this plotline, introduced relatively early in the film, lead to?

Nothing.

All that happens is that they continue to hide, eventually leave their home, and their truck stalls a bit - so Barry saves them. That's it. They're supposed to provide some actual faces to the potential victims of Steppenwolf's scheme, but wind up feeling totally extraneous - especially in a movie that's only 2 hours long and lost some SEEMINGLY IMPORTANT PLOT-RELATED SCENES...just to allow 6 minutes dedicated solely to this random family who don't do anything important.

Semi-related question: why were the Parademons unable to break into their rickety, old house? Not even break through the windows? We saw Parademons tear apart the friggin' Batmobile!

8. HOLY CHRIST WHAT HAPPENED TO SUPERMAN'S UPPER LIP?!

STOP MAKING HIM SMILE WHAT THE HELL IS THIS

9. Why did JK Simmons get hyper jacked to show up in two scenes where he was wearing a full suit and overcoat?

One of the bigger disappointments in this film is how underutilized JK Simmons is. Not only one of the most compelling character actors of our time, he's also possibly THE GREATEST character actor to ever be in a superhero film, with his spot-on perfect turn as J. Jonah Jameson in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man films - a performance so daunting and flawless that no other Spider-Man movie has since even bothered to try recasting the role.

So the thought of JK Simmons taking on a grizzled and weathered Commissioner Gordon was pretty exciting - especially when he started releasing pics of him getting HYPER-JACKED for the role. Was Gordon going to be getting into some of the fighting? Was he going to get heavily involved in the story?

Nope. In fact, he's barely in the film - with a few brief scenes on a rooftop to give the crew some exposition and nothing more. Hopefully he'll have more to do in an eventual Batman solo film, because I WANT TO SEE JACKED COMMISSIONER GORDON.

10. Why didn't Bruce Wayne help out Martha (Kent) BEFORE the bank foreclosed on her farm?! Also, why didn't he just pay off her mortgage or purchase her property back - why did he have to buy the entire bank?!

Bruce Wayne keeps tabs on everything - the entirety of Gotham, various meta-humans he hasn't even met yet, and everyone in between. So, one would assume he'd keep an eye out for MARTHAAAA (sorry) Kent, his sorta-friend's mom whose life he saved and who would presumably mean a great deal to him (as someone still entirely unable to get over the grief of his own parents' death). We saw pretty clearly in BvS that moms named Martha are very important to Bruce - so how did he not know the bank was foreclosing on the Kent Farm?

As Gotham's richest playboy vigilante, it wouldn't have been a huge deal for him to casually pay off the bank without Martha ever having to know about it. Hell, you'd think he'd be visiting her pretty regularly to talk about Clark and make sure she's okay, since this iteration of Bruce has basically no one else to commiserate with on the matter (except Alfred). Thankfully, he does eventually help her out - by buying the bank that was foreclosing on her and undoing that. Which...is a little extreme. Probably coulda just gotten her property back and called it a day and not spent several billion dollars (and insane amount of paperwork and meetings) to accomplish the same thing.

11. Why was the League's first instinct after getting beaten one time to RESURRECT A DEAD KRYPTONIAN?! That exact thing happened in Batman v. Superman and IT WENT VERY POORLY. THERE IS SO MUCH PRECEDENT FOR NOT DOING THIS.

Listen, I know Lex did some funky stuff with adding his blood to the Genesis Chamber and finding some info on Kryptonian genetic modification, but the resurrection of General Zod (and his rebirth as Doomsday) serves as literally the ONLY point of reference to Batman and the rest of the League. To IMMEDIATELY think bringing Superman's corpse back to life in the Genesis Chamber as the ONLY OPTION feels...a little short-sighted. The movie addresses this (both Aquaman and Flash seem hesitant, with some explicit Pet Sematary references), but goes on with it anyways AND HAS IT TURN OUT OKAY. Which is REAL lucky for them, because it's more than a little weird we saw a totally 100% dead person come back to life and have their brain still working fine.

Note: I know that Superman showed signs of not being dead at the end of BvS, with the dirt shaking and rising - but that now seems....completely irrelevant? Almost like just a random red herring - making us think Superman was just in a bigtime coma and needed the sun to re-energize him again to bring him back to 100% (ya know...like in the comic version of Death of Superman). Here, it now just looks like he was straight up dead, but not decaying, and that's it.

12. Speaking of - why is that Kryptonian ship still in the middle of Metropolis?

Uhhh miiiight be time to move that weird alien ship from the MIDDLE OF THE CITY. You'd think after a giant raging monster came out of it last time, city officials would be like "yeah, we should move this to the uninhabited island not far away" or something. Because, ya know, THE EXACT SAME THING ALMOST HAPPENS AGAIN HERE (and who knows what Evil Confused Resurrected Clark would have done if Lois hadn't showed up).

13. HOW COULD LITERALLY ALL OF THEM FORGET ABOUT THE LAST MOTHER BOX WHILE FIGHTING SUPERMAN?! IT'S LITERALLY THE ONLY THING YOU HAVE TO PROTECT TO STOP THE APOCALYPSE.

JESUS CHRIST DID YOU ALL NEED TO GO OVER TO THE MONUMENT TO GAWK AT SHIRTLESS HENRY CAVILL? I MEAN, YEAH, HE'S GOT A GREAT BODY AND IS VERY HANDSOME BUT FOR SHIT'S SAKE COULD JUST ONE OF YOU GO MAKE SURE THE FINAL MOTHER BOX (THAT COULD BRING ABOUT THE END OF THE WORLD) IS PROTECTED? IT'S LITERALLY THE ONLY THING YOU ACTUALLY SHOULD BE DOING.

14. How did Superman know to go to the random Russian nuclear power plant village?

So after a messy resurrection and a little squabble with Batman, Clark gets calmed down and decides to chill at the ol' Kent Farm for a bit to get his bearings on the whole "being alive again" thing. He's pretty jovial and chill, especially for someone who has seen the other side of existence and also has an insanely messed up upper lip - but Lois tells him that there's another end of the world scenario playing out, and Clark's like "well, guess I'd better go help with all that." And then...he does, arriving in Russia in the nick of time to help wallop Steppenwolf.

But how the hell did he know where to go? No one left him instructions or directions or even the mildest inkling of where they'd be heading or why. And before you say "superhearing and supersight" or whatever, keep in mind that ONE MOVIE AGO Superman was completely unable to find his own mother in a 5 mile radius.

15. FUCKING HELL SUPERMAN'S UPPER LIP WHAT THE CHRIST???

Here's the thing - I think I really liked the new take on Superman presented in this movie(outside of his mildly evil confused undead state). He's jokey, jovial, dad-like and HE'S SMILING. He's the kind of confident good guy that makes Superman such a timeless and wonderful character - and one that Henry Cavill seems great at playing, despite the previous movies making him into some grim cynical uncertain bore.

I prefaced all of that with "I think..." because it was SO HARD to watch most of his scenes when his upper lip was so noticeably messed up in practically EVERY SCENE HE WAS IN. I understand there were some unavoidable issues that Warner Bros. couldn't get past - Paramount was forcing him to keep his mustache during reshoots due to his commitment to Mission: Impossible 6, so WB figured they could just CG it out and no one would notice. The problem is that it's impossible not to notice - it's your standard uncanny valley nightmarefuel, and it detracts from every scene involving Superman.

The really weird thing is that they had the PERFECT WAY TO AVOID THIS - give Superman a beard. A big deal is made out of his body not decaying despite his death, so why not just have his beard and hair continue to grow? That way he can keep his mustache, WB can save money on last minute special effects, and it's not a horrifying weird uncomfortable experience every time Superman smiles. It's baffling they thought this key character in their $300 million tentpole franchise climax could look like this and it would be okay.

BONUS QUESTION: What's the deal with Flash's weird run?

I'm not alone in this, right? Flash's run (primarily thinking of the one from the closing montage) looks EXTREMELY WEIRD - like he's just flailing his limbs aimlessly. It almost looks like someone making fun of the track team by miming a bad running form and yelling "Ooo! Look at me! I like running FOR FUN!"

Only Warner Bros. could spend several million dollars just to make one of their most timeless characters look like the QWOP guy.

20 Celebrities You May Not Realize Are Registered Sex Offenders

20 Celebrities You May Not Realize Are Registered Sex Offenders

Any criminal charge is serious, but sexual crimes follow those who commit them for the rest of their lives. These famous sex offenders are all on record for their offenses. Some famous athletes have been convicted of sexual assault, and several reality television stars have spent time in prison for abusing under-age victims. Tragically, many of these famous registered sex offenders targeted young children.

Who will you find on this list of celebrity sex offenders? Boxer Mike Tyson served three years in jail for raping a woman in 1992. He had to register as a sex offender when he traveled to Tennessee to fight Lennox Lewis in 2002. Jeffrey Jones, perhaps best known for his role in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, pled no contest to a felony charge of paying a 14-year-old boy to pose for explicit photos in 2003. He was sentenced to five years probation and was ordered to register as a sex offender. Other famous people who are registered sex offenders include Gary Glitter, Paul Reubens, and Jerry Sandusky.

Are you shocked that so many celebrities have been charged and convicted of sex crimes? Take a look at this list and get in on the conversation in the comments section.
