Iowa Deputies Trying to Find the Person Who Keeps Dumping Bags of Human Vomit in Ditches

Sheriff's deputies in Henry County are stuck in the middle of a less than appetizing investigation. Investigators are trying to find the person who has dumped bags of what appears to be human vomit in ditches in a 1 1/2-mile area northeast of the city.

Deputy Dan Wesley said as many as 50 garbage and trash bags containing regurgitated food has been dumped over the past three years.

Bags, ranging in size from small white trash bags to large black lawn bags, have been found with only a couple of inches of the substance in them, Wesley said.

"It's pretty weird," he said. "It's pretty unusual for us … we haven't worked anything like this before."

A sample was taken from one of the bags and sent to a private lab for analysis.

"We haven't found any DNA or anything yet," he said.

There are no suspects in the case.

"We were just hoping … whoever is doing it will stop,"

Crucifix NG

Crucifix NG (Next Generation) is the principal work of the Faith-Based Electronics Group at the Interactive Televangelist Program (ITP). Crucifix NG is a printed electronic circuit board in the shape of a crucifix. This handheld, wall-mountable device houses a battery-operated transmitter that broadcasts an ASCII, non-denominational version of the Lord's Prayer at 916 megahertz. (916 has no numerological significance - it is simply a function of the availability of low-cost transmission chips within this FCC license-free bandwidth.)

Many people affix crucifixes and other religious iconography to the walls of their homes for metaphysical security. Crucifix NG goes a step further, bathing a physical space in an anointed electromagnetism. The signal is strong enough to fill the average size room, perfect for use at home or at the office, and is received by any object that acts as an antenna. As electronic objects may be the strongest antennas within range, believers will see a marked improvement in the security of their devices, both at the software and hardware levels, whether the device in question is a cell phone, portable music player, or computer.

The power of Crucifix NG is even stronger when one considers that the human body itself is an effective antenna. While we are not tuned to perceive electromagnetic signals at 916 Mhz, our body receives these signals nonetheless. In a gallery context, all people within range of the signal receive the Lord's Prayer, their bodies imbued with an anointed electromagnetism, and it is beyond their ability to accept or reject this transmission. It simply happens to them. And as the transmission is entirely invisible, the only evidence of it is noted on the placard next to the device. Even then, the gallery visitor has no verifiable way of knowing that the signal is being either transmitted or received. After all, it is a faith-based initiative. The battery will eventually run out. And it may not matter. Check it out HERE.

At first sight it looks like a regular cell phone — same size, same shape, same overall appearance.

But beneath the digital face lies a .22-caliber pistol, a phone gun capable of firing four rounds in quick succession with a touch of the otherwise standard keypad.

The US Department of Homeland Security and the FBI are aware of the device and have instructed baggage screeners to be on the lookout for suspicious mobile phones. This is especially after 9/11.

European law enforcement officials — stunned by the discovery of these deadly decoys — say phone guns are changing the rules of engagement in Europe.

Airport authorities across Europe are implementing systems to X-ray all cell phones

“We find it very, very alarming,” says Wolfgang Dicke of the German Police union. “It means police will have to draw their weapons whenever a person being checked reaches for their mobile phone.”

The FBI, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, and the U.S. Customs Service say they’ve been briefed on the new weapons.

“This criminal invention represents a potentially serious threat to law enforcement and the public,” said U.S. Customs Service Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly.
“We received word about these guns last month. We have since alerted our field personnel to be on the lookout for ‘cell phone guns’ at U.S. ports of entry.”

Guns on the Move
These new covert guns were first discovered in October when Dutch police stumbled on a cache during a drug raid in Amsterdam.

In another recent incident a Croatian gun dealer was caught attempting to smuggle a shipment through Slovenia into Western Europe.

Police say both shipments are believed to have originated in Yugoslavia.
Interpol sent out a warning to law enforcement agencies around the world.
European border police and customs officers are at a heightened state of alert at all ports, airports and border crossings.Realistic Appearance

‘If you didn’t know they were guns, you wouldn’t suspect anything,” said Ari Zandbergen, spokesman for the Amsterdam police.

“Only when you have one in your hand do you realize that they are heavier,” says Birgit Heib of the German Federal Criminal Investigation Agency.

The guns are loaded by twisting the phone in half. The .22-caliber rounds fit into the top of the phone under the screen. The lower half, under the keyboard, holds the firing pins. The bullets fire through the antenna by pressing the keypad from numbers five to eight.

Amsterdam police says they are very sophisticated machines constructed inside gutted cell phones which do not light up or operate as real phones.
“These are very difficult to make. We believe experts are involved,” says Zandbergen.

U.S. authorities, including the FBI, ATF, Federal Aviation Administration and the U.S. Customs Service Authority have been supplied detailed information and pictures of these new weapons.

“They’ve been given a heads up,” said Jim Crandall, ATF spokesman.
To date no phone guns have been discovered either in the United States or in the process of being smuggled in, authorities say. But they know it’s only a matter of time.

FAA spokeswoman Rebecca Trexler said airport security officers had been trained to deal with this new threat.

“We don’t want to tell the bad guys exactly what we’re looking for,” she says, “We are trying to stay one step ahead.”Will Affect Travelers

Airport authorities across Europe are implementing systems to X-ray all cell phones, those procedures will likely be followed by airports around the world.
“This is just one more item that we need to pay special attention to because nowadays, of course just about every passenger carries a mobile phone,” says the spokesman for Frankfurt airport security.

Customs officials in the U.S. say their safety procedure has normally been to require travelers to turn their phones on, however that may no longer be enough. Cell phone users will have to be made aware that reaching for their phones in some circumstances could be misinterpreted as a threat by authorities.

5,000 Year Old Recordings Caught On Pottery

I think this is just about freaking incredible. Belgian scientists (previously known for their delicious chocolates), have been able to extract recordings from 5,000 year old vases. How can this be? Well, here’s the deal.

It seems that the vase makers used long sticks to carve decorations on the clay vases as they were being made on rotating stones. These sticks picked up the minute vibrations in the air (caused by, say, conversations) and transformed these into grooves and bumps, much like what happens when you make a vinyl record. The Belgian scientists then analysed these patterns and extracted what is believed to be the world’s oldest known recordings.

In this link you will see a video of a relatively pompous looking pipe-clad professor type explaining the whole deal to you in French. However, about two-thirds of the way through, you get to hear about ten seconds of the recordings in question. It’s a man, speaking in Latin, and laughing.

It’s kind of eerie. Think about it. This was recorded, what, 3,000 years before JC was even born!

Probably some exposed fake on MythBusters anyways...

woman removes mans testicles with bare hands...

A Philadelphia man is recovering from an attack, allegedly at the hands of his wife. The assault on his private parts has become public knowledge. In an interview with Action News after his release from, the 52-year-old victim spoke of his terrifying ordeal.
The 52-year-old Tioga-Nicetown man, who we are identifying only by his first name of Howard, arrived home late Wednesday, hours after his wife allegedly tore off two parts of his genitalia with her bare hands. Surgeons at Einstein successfully managed to repair the damage.

Howard/Tioga-Nicetown: "Doctors did a beautiful job in E.R. and the paramedics did a wonderful job, they only took 4 minutes to get here."

Howard says his 40-year-old wife Monica, who he says is bi-polar, somehow conceived the notion that he was cheating on her. So while he was asleep last night, she attacked him.

Police outside the home in Tioga-Nicetown following the domestic incident early Tuesday morning.

Howard: "I mean she just grabbed me all down there and yanking and yanking and tearing me up with those fingernails."

Police and paramedics rushed to the man's row home in the 3800 block of Pulaski where they found him bleeding profusely. He was rushed to Einstein where doctors first labeled his condition critical. He was later upgraded to stable after having reattachment surgery and a few doses of morphine. Howard still cannot believe his wife of 11 years would allegedly do this him.

Howard: "I can see doing something like that to a rapist, or mugger but not a husband, not something like..."

Dann: "She thought that you were cheating on her?"

Howard: "I wasn't cheating on nobody, I'm home in bed at 8' 0 clock every night, I mean I'm not out there messing around."

Brian Lawson/neighbor: "I mean men cringing when they hear the story, I mean uh, I'm just cringing thinking about it."

Antoinette Fortune/Neighbor: "Who would wanna do something like that?"

Unidentified Neighbor: "That's kinda nasty. That's drastic isn't it? He's lucky to be alive."

Some neighbors say Howard's had problems with his wife before and has thrown her out only to let her back in. They worry what'll happen next.

Dann Cuellar: "Howard, you're not gonna let her back in here are you?"

Howard: "Oh no, no, no. She's in jail where she belongs."

At one point, Howard's wife Monica was facing attempted murder charges but now, the D.A.'s office has asked that a psychiatric evaluation be performed before any charges are filed.

Fish killed as soft drink leaks from factory

It has become a big no-no in school lunchboxes because of its unhealthy reputation.

But it seems that Sunny D, formerly known as Sunny Delight, is not half as bad for children as it is for fish.

Around 8,000 litres of concentrate used to make the drink leaked into a watercourse on Wednesday morning, turning the river bright yellow.

Dozens of fish were found floating on the surface, poisoned by the lurid mixture.

The spill of 'sub-standard' juice was a category one pollution incident, the most serious kind, according to the Environment Agency.

It was caused by a split in an underground fibreglass tank at the Gerber Foods Soft Drink factory in Bridgwater, Somerset. Approximately six tons of juice and concentrate, due for disposal, seeped into a tributary of the River Parrett.

Gerber employees began a major mopping-up operation to stop the juice reaching the river and causing more environmental havoc.

Workers created a sandbag wall and dug trenches to stop it seeping any further.

As they toiled, three tankers were called in to pump as much of the spillage out of the watercourse as possible.

The damaged tank was emptied and pits around it were excavated to prevent juice that had already spilled travelling further.

The emergency action successfully stopped the concentrate reaching the river, according to Gerber personnel director Paul Hurst.

"!We took swift action in preventing further seepage," he said.

"As far as I am aware, this is the first such incident."

More than 10million litres of juice and soft drinks are produced every week at the plant.

Mr Hurst explained: "We take extreme care with the quality of our juice and if the concentrate or the finished product is not to our required quality standard, it is contained until being removed by tanker for sustainable disposal.

"Although orange juice is a natural substance, we obviously needed to deal quickly with its concentration in the watercourse.

"Gerber personnel were deployed and we worked closely with the Environment and Drainage Board to successfully bring the situation under control within a very short timescale."

Catherine Lockwood of the Environment Agency said: "The visual impact of this incident was immediately apparent.

"We will be carrying out a detailed investigation to assess the impact it has had on the surrounding waterways."

Asda supermarkets recently withdrew Sunny D from the shelves, citing a slump in sales.

The juice drink's name was changed and a marketing campaign launched after criticism from nutritionists, who claim it contains unhealthy levels of sugar and additives.

Functional LEGO Crossbow

While he originally set out to make a simple elastic gun that could fire LEGO bricks Alexie Berteig ended up spending 300 hours on what eventually became a semi-automatic pump-action crossbow.

It holds 4 standard LEGO bricks in the handle with 1 additional brick in the chamber and everytime you ‘pump’ the crossbow the elastic cord is re-tensioned and the next brick is automatically loaded into firing position. When ‘primed’ the entire assembly does exert enough tension to precariously bend some of the LEGO pieces, but so far it has yet to break.

Of course given the lack of any aerodynamic design on the standard LEGO brick the crossbow is not exactly accurate, but it can fire a brick about 20 yards. As the designer puts it “…believe me, you don’t want to fire this thing at the family pet.”

Explosive chocolate bomb

A must have for the ultimate dinner party, this exploding chocolate bomb is a celebration centrepiece that will keep your guests intrigued until the final countdown. Such a talking piece deserves to be the centre of attention. And once discharged the quality dark chocolate shell and contents provide ongoing entertainment.

Our advice would be to place the bomb on a tray or solid plate in the centre of a cleared table, place the safety guard (included) around the bomb with further clear space around that. Light the wick and stand well back and wait. Do not remove the cardboard base from the bomb and like a firework do not return to the bomb once lit in the unlikely event it should fail to explode. (safety instructions included)

Catholic University Women's Lacrosse Team Initiation Party 2006

But first, a comment by our hazing expert, Dr. Susan Lipkins:

Are you surprised that girls at a Catholic University would consider ordering a male stripper as part of their Lacrosse Team's initiation? Frankly, I was surprised. I assume that this "tradition" was adapted after hearing that other teams, perhaps Boys LAX teams had hazings which involved strippers. Although I believe in women's liberation, I believe that this is taking equality to an extreme. It is also against the concepts of the women's movement, which taught young women to respect their bodies, and not to treat themselves or others as sex objects.

Perhaps I expect too much. I thought that role models, such as coaches, would be teaching their teams how to take care of their bodies, respect themselves and others, and that the seniors or captains were supposed to show leadership. These hazings clearly put the victims in humiliating, demeaning and degrading positions which will definitely have a psychological affect.

Clarabell Dead at 84

Lew Anderson, who captivated young baby boomers as the Howdy Doody Show's final Clarabell the Clown, has died at the age of 84.

The musician and actor died Sunday in Hawthorne of complications of prostate cancer, said his son, Christopher Anderson.

Long mute as Clarabell, Anderson broke the clown's silence in the show's final episode in 1960. With trembling lips and a visible tear in his eye, he spoke the show's final words: "Goodbye, kids."

Though Anderson was not the only man to play "Buffalo Bob" Smith's mute sidekick, he was the best, Smith said in his memoir.

With the Peanut Gallery looking on, Anderson used bicycle horns to give yes and no answers. For more expressive moments, he wielded a bottle of seltzer.

The show, which launched in 1947 when televisions were still a novelty, was the first network weekday children's show. Anderson joined "Doodyville," a circus town peopled with puppets and human actors and watched by a Peanut Gallery of kids, in the mid 1950's.

Though his fame as Clarabell followed him throughout his life, Anderson was also a success as a musician and bandleader. In recent years, his All-American Big Band appeared on Friday nights at New York's Birdland jazz club.

Anderson was born in 1922 in Kirkman, Iowa. He started a band while serving in the Navy during World War II and later toured the Midwest with bands before landing in New York.

It was when he joined the Honey Dreamers, a singing group that appeared on radio and early television shows, that he met Smith and became a clown

"Clarabell just fell into his lap," said his stepdaughter, Lorie George.

Anderson followed Bobby Nicholson, who later played Doodyville's J. Cornelius Cobb, into the role. The first to play the mute clown was Bob Keeshan, who later became known as Captain Kangaroo.

Anderson, who lived in South Salem, is survived by his wife, Peggy, two sons, his stepdaughter and five grandchildren.

This Week in Pet History...

Workers Take 227 Animals From Calif. Home

Workers wearing gas masks removed 227 animals that were in "deplorable" condition from a home that reeked of urine, authorities said.

The final tally included 98 guinea pigs, 84 cats, 27 dogs, 14 rabbits, 3 potbellied pigs and 1 bird, Code Compliance Supervisor Tony Genovesi said Wednesday.

Two of the pigs had such severely injured hooves that they had turned them in and were walking on a higher point on their legs, officials said.

"I'm surprised they're not all sick with upper respiratory infections because they're breathing straight ammonia," said Susan Bradley, a kennel technician with the animal control department.

Hesperia homeowners are allowed to keep six cats, six dogs and 65 cage animals, Genovesi said. All of the animals were removed from the home because of the bad health conditions, he said.

The residents will get back the ones they're allowed to own once the home is fit for their habitation, he said.

It was unclear why the residents kept so many animals.

A person at the home declined to comment to the Victorville Daily Press.

Officials said they learned of the conditions at the home on Friday, when they served an unrelated warrant on a residence across the street.

Authorities previously visited the home in August 2004 and removed dozens of animals, Genovesi said.

Police rescue 65 cats from woman's home

Dozens of cats need new homes after police rescued them from a house in Pawtucket.

Animal Control Officer John Holmes says police took 65 cats from a house where a 51-year-old woman and her daughter live. They found seven dead cats in the woman's freezer and cat feces throughout the house.

Police and housing officials told the woman she would have to stay somewhere else until the house was cleaned. They took the surviving cats to Gansett Animal Hospital to be evaluated.

Holmes says healthy cats will be available for adoption. He says none of the cats were spayed, neutered or vaccinated.

Suffolk Woman Charged After 96 Animals Were Found In Home

A Suffolk woman who had 96 dogs and cats in her home faces ten misdemeanor counts of animal neglect and cruelty.

Prosecutor Susan Walton says 41-year-old Francine Cochran could get as much as a year in jail for each of the cruelty charges. She also could be fined if convicted of not having updated rabies shots and city licenses for the animals.

An animal control officer who was searching for a lost pet found 58 dogs and 38 cats in Cochran's house, where her husband and 12-year-old son also lived. The city condemned the house for sanitary reasons, and all but ten of the animals were taken to a shelter.

Brandon Wichman is the veterinarian who examined the animals. He says most of the dogs had to be euthanized. Some had lost as much as 90 percent of their fur and had three-inch-long toenails. In his words, "They were actually just in horrendous condition."

Cowboy Church to challenge ruling

Garland Simmons was excited when the Cowboy Church began meeting at his place on Horseshoe Bend Road in late March.

It appears, however, that somebody did not share his enthusiasm. Simmons was notified by Bedford County officials that the Cowboy Church meetings violate county zoning regulations.

"I got the notice certified through the mail, Monday morning," Simmons said.

The notice consisted of two letters. One was from Gary McIver, the county's building official. McIver wrote that, by hosting the Cowboy Church on his property, Simmons is using it in a manner contrary to its agricultural (AR) zoning.

He also wrote that the building in which the Cowboy Church is being held, is defined as a farm building by the Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code. The Cowboy Church constitutes a change of use for the building.

"We are all in agreement that this event is a worthy and admirable cause," McIver wrote.

However, he wrote that it is an unpermitted change of use for the property.

The other letter was from Lindsay Blankenship, a planner in the county's department of planning. It directs Simmons to "obtain the necessary permits for the establishment of a Religious Assembly" on the property by May 28.

"I don't think it's the county," commented Simmons. "It's somebody that is against religion or against me."

The Rev. Raymond Bell, the Cowboy Church's pastor, agrees that somebody has filed a complaint with the county.

Simmons has retained Robert Wandrei, a Bedford attorney, to represent him. Wandrei said that they plan to try to talk to county officials and get a resolution. Wandrei noted that Simmons has a right to appeal the county's decision.

County Attorney Carl Boggess said that the county has received an appeal from Simmons.

Meanwhile, the Liberty Counsel has contacted Bell. According to Liberty Counsel's Web site at, the organization offers free legal representation to people whose civil liberties have been denied. Bell said the organization called him Friday evening and he agreed to accept their offer of representation.

Bell said that the issue is whether or not we have government authorized churches. He feels the zoning restriction on churches puts the government in a position of authorizing, or not authorizing, a church.

According to Rena Lindevaldsen, the Liberty Counsel attorney representing the Cowboy Church, the zoning code in Bedford County is very broad. It could even impact things people do in their own home and a person hosting a home Bible study could be required to get a special use permit.

Lindevaldsen said that, because the code is overly broad, it violates the Cowboy Church's First Amendment rights, and also runs counter to a federal law, the Religious Land Uses and Institutional Persons Act. According to this law, local zoning can't impose a significant burden on a church's right to worship.

"If he was having a square dance, nobody would have bothered him," noted Lindevaldsen, who said that she has read Bedford County's zoning ordinance.

Lindevaldsen said she will contact Bedford County officials, via letter, this week.

Meanwhile the church has no plans to stop meeting. A Cowboy Church in Thaxton is also scheduled to soon open.

Robin Williams' plan...

What we need now is for our UN Ambassador to stand up
and repeat this message.

Robin Williams' plan...
(Hard to argue with this logic!)

"I see a lot of people yelling for peace but I have not heard of a plan for peace. So, here's one plan."

1) "The US will apologize to the world for our "interference" in their affairs, past & present. You know -- Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Tojo, Noriega, Milosevic, Hussein, and the rest of those "good ole boys", we will never "interfere" again.

2) We will withdraw our troops from all over the world, starting with Germany, South Korea, the Middle East, and the Philippines. They don't want us there. We would station troops at our borders. No one allowed sneaking through holes in the fence.

3) All illegal aliens have 90 days to get their affairs together and leave. We'll give them a free trip home.
After 90 days the remainder will be gathered up and deported immediately, regardless of whom or where they are.
They're illegal!!! France will welcome them.

4) All future visitors will be thoroughly checked and limited to 90 days unless given a special permit!!!! No one from a terrorist nation will be allowed in. If you don't like it there, change it yourself and don't hide here. Asylum would never be available to anyone.
We don't need any more cab drivers or 7-11 cashiers.

5) No foreign "students" over age 21. The older ones are the bombers. If they don't attend classes, they get a "D" and it's back home baby.

6) The US will make a strong effort to become self-sufficient energy wise. This will include developing nonpolluting sources of energy but will require a temporary drilling of oil in the Alaskan wilderness. The caribou will have to cope for a while .

7) Offer Saudi Arabia and other oil producing countries $10 a barrel for their oil. If they don't like it, we'll go someplace else. They can go somewhere else to sell their production. (About a week of the wells filling up the storage sites would be enough.)

8) If there is a famine or other natural catastrophe in the world, we will not "interfere." They can pray to Allah or whomever, for seeds, rain, cement or whatever they need. Besides most of know that what we give them is stolen or given to the army. The people who need it most get very little, if anything.

9) Ship the UN Headquarters to an isolated island someplace. We don't need the spies and fair weather friends here. Besides, the building would make a good homeless shelter or lockup for illegal aliens.

10) All Americans must go to charm and beauty school. That way, no one can call us "Ugly Americans" any longer.

11) The Language we speak is ENGLISH...learn it...or LEAVE...

Now, isn't that a winner of a plan?

The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses.
She's got a baseball bat and she's yelling, 'you want a piece of me?'

or course Robin didn't actually say any of the above , but he did divorce his wife and marry his kids babysitter and he does have
herpes ...

Man who set woman on FIRE found GUILTY

UPPER MARLBORO, Md. - A stoic Yvette Cade sat patting her mother's hand as the verdict in her ex-husband's case was read in Prince George's County Circuit Court Friday.

A jury Friday found Roger B. Hargrave guilty of trying to kill Cade by setting her on fire

Jurors deliberated for more than 7 1/2 hours Thursday and Friday before convicting Hargrave on all counts -- first-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault and second-degree assault. He will be sentenced June 2 and could receive a maximum of life in prison.

On Oct. 10, 2005, Hargrave, 34, walked into a T-Mobile store in Clinton, poured liquid on Yvette Cade's head from a soda bottle, then chased after her -- lighting a match when she fell to the ground.

During the trial, jurors watched a silent video of Hargrave committing the crime. In the video, Cade, 32, is engulfed in flames.

The video generated gasps from Cade's family who was sitting in the courtroom.

Cade suffered burns over more than 65 percent of her body and has undergone more than 14 surgeries since she was burned.

Her case generated interest among advocates of domestic violence victims because three weeks before the crime a judge lifted a protective order against Hargrave.

The judge who issued the protective order, District Court Judge Richard A. Palumbo, is on administrative duty because of his handling of the case. A disciplinary panel is considering a complaint against him.


'Perverse' cannibal killer gets life

Defendant: 'I wanted to eat him -- I didn't want to kill him'

FRANKFURT, Germany -- A cannibal whose killing and eating of a willing victim shocked Germany has been convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison after a court overturned a previous manslaughter conviction.

Judge Klaus Drescher rejected the defense team's argument that Armin Meiwes, 44, should be convicted only of the lesser offense of "killing on demand," because he was just following his victim's wishes.

Announcing the verdict at the Frankfurt state court on Tuesday, Drescher said the killing was "a particularly perverse murder."

"He acted out of self-seeking motives and has shown that, to this day, he does not regret his actions," Drescher said, according to The Associated Press. Meiwes watched calmly as the verdict was read out.

Meiwes, a former computer technician from Rotenburg-an-der-fuld in central Germany, had corresponded with 400 people over the Internet to find a willing victim.

Bernd-Juergen Brandes, a high-ranking IT manager with German firm Siemens, agreed and traveled by train to meet Meiwes.

The defense showed a videotape of the March 2001 incident, in which the victim made no attempt to escape and was a willing participant.

Meiwes cut off the victim's penis before the pair ate it together, authorities have said. He then cut up the victim, stored his body in a freezer and ate it over the following months.

"The next one must be young but not so fat," Drescher quoted Meiwes as saying after the killing.

Meiwes was arrested in December 2002 after a student in Austria showed police an advertisement Meiwes had placed on the Internet, seeking another man willing to be killed and eaten.

The judge described Meiwes as psychologically sick but aware of what he was doing. "The defendant was fully conscious of his actions and could control them," Drescher told the court on Tuesday.

"This is not killing on request," he said. "He killed him because he wanted to slaughter and eat his flesh. He had achieved the biggest kick of his life."

A court-appointed psychiatric expert, Georg Stolpmann, told the trial he believed there was a high risk that Meiwes could offend again.

The defendant had claimed he had hesitated before going through with the act. "I wanted to eat him -- I didn't want to kill him," he told the court.

Meiwes was standing trial for the second time after Germany's top criminal court ruled his 2004 conviction for manslaughter and eight-year jail sentence was too lenient.

Under German law Meiwes could be freed after 15 years. The court rejected a request by prosecutors to deny his right to early release, saying his victim had volunteered to be killed and eaten. Meiwes was also convicted of disturbing the peace of the dead.

Constant Sexual Arousal Plagues NorCal Woman

54-year-old Jean Lund is packing for a plane ride, a plane ride that will make her uncomfortable, irritable and put her in pain.

"Everything I do is uncomfortable," she says.

For this woman, riding in a plane, in a car or even trying to sit still to talk with us, is agonizing.

"It's like the blood is flowing to the genital area and it stops there. Pools until it's a constant throbbing," she says.

Lund has a rare sexual disorder. Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome. She suffers from unrelenting sexual arousal. For PSAS patients it is like a switch has been turned on, and can't be turned off. With the pain, comes embarrassment. One newspaper article screamed a woman has 588 orgasms everyday.

"Not true. And feels like sexual freak? True. I said that. That is my quote. That's how I felt before I found out there was a name for it," says Lund

A name, and other sufferers.

"It is not pleasant. Verging on painful irritating and disturbing," says Urologist Jennifer Berman.

Berman was one of the first to recognize PSAS.

"It's not all in their heads. These women have been bounced around for months if not years to a variety of different doctors, psychologists, sex therapists. It's not an emotional thing,” she says.

As doctors become more aware, more women are being diagnosed.

"No one knows cause of PSAS or the epidemiology. Therefore it is very hard to treat," says Director of the Women’s Sexual Health Foundation, Lisa Martinez.

Despite all the experts, nobody is really sure what causes PSAS, it has been linked to pelvic trauma, pelvic surgery and prior use of anti depressants.

For Lund and so many others, there is no cure, and after 11 years, Jean Lund struggles to cope.

3,738 Mothers Set Breast-Feeding Record

Nearly 4,000 mothers set a world record this week for the largest number of women simultaneously breast-feeding their babies in the same place, organizers said.

Manila Mayor Lito Atienza, whose city is one of the event's organizers, said 3,738 mothers simultaneously breast-fed their babies for at least one minute, breaking the Guinness World Record.

The result will be submitted to Guinness for evaluation.

The United Nations Children's Fund said the previous record was held by the City of Berkeley, California, where 1,135 mothers simultaneous breast-fed babies for a minute on Aug. 3, 2002.

The event was also held to raise awareness about the benefits of breast-feeding, organizers said.

Dr. Nicholas Alipui, UNICEF representative to the Philippines, said breast-feeding can help curb malnutrition in children under two years old, provide children with antibodies to fight diseases and boost the country's economy because families save on infant formula.

Force Feeding the Worlds Oldest Woman her own Birthday Cake.

SAN AGUSTIN, El Salvador - Friends and relatives of Cruz Hernandez's gathered on Wednesday to celebrate her 128th birthday, a milestone that might make her the world's oldest person.

Hernandez, who relatives say spends most of her time dozing and no longer speaks, was surrounded by some 200 people at her party, some bearing a cake and others dressed as Salvadoran mythological heroes.

According to national records, Hernandez was born on May 3, 1878, in one of the country's central provinces, where she gave birth to 13 children. She now has 60 grandchildren, 80 great-grandchildren and 25 great-great grandchildren.

National birth registry officials sent Hernandez's documents to the Guinness World Records organization last year but have yet to hear whether the case was accepted.

Guinness claims Ecuadorean Maria Esther de Capovilla is the world's oldest living woman at age 116.

According to the organization, the longest any woman has ever lived is 122 years. The oldest man was 120 when he died in 1986.

Apple Ipod AV misses shipping Target...

Apple has slipped on what was suppose to be a summer blockbuster for them "the IPOD AV". Technical issues with the 4 inch touch screen device have pushed it back to the christmas 2006 selling season which begins in November.

The slip will also give Apple plenty of time to sign up major studios for the iTunes Film addition that will be announced at the same time.

They of course will be fighting this year with the sub one hundred dollar 7" portable dvd players, Nintendo and Sonys new video game products for those all important holiday consumer electronic dollars...

I wonder what its going to be like watching films with all those fingerprints on the screen?, maybe it will be like the windshields on those Nascar pitstops where you just peal off another layer each time you wanna SEE A FILM...hummmmm

Too Hot To Handle: Problems Boil Over for Celebrity Chef’s Self-Heating Lattes

Once considered the “next big thing” by excited coffee lovers and technology buffs alike, the Wolfgang Puck Self-Heating Latte is being withdrawn from shelves because of concerns that many of the innovative cans are defective, and possibly dangerous.

Last month, Wolfgang Puck Worldwide, Inc. sent a letter to its licensee, Newport Beach, Calif.-based BrandSource Inc., demanding it ask retailers to remove the 10-oz., artificially-sweetened coffee drinks from shelves so that product defects could be reviewed. The recall demand came after BrandSouce CEO Robert Groux informed Puck’s company of a growing number of complaints from retailers and consumers alike.

This can melted due to problems with the can’s manufacturing process, according to Robert Groux, the problem stems from the faulty construction of the cans themselves, designed by OnTech Delaware, LLC., which is based in San Diego.

Consumer complaints have ranged from the product’s failure to reach an appropriately hot temperature to it actually overheating, spurting product from the can, leaking out of the can, or the calcium oxide heating mechanism adulterating the coffee itself, according to Groux.

“We have reports of chunks of white product, which we believe to be calcium oxide, that was found in the product, which means the heating element most likely leaked,” Groux said. “We have complaints of can meltdowns, curdled product, sour product, leaking cans.”

Last month, a Las Vegas woman named Dee Harris claimed she had been badly burned by one of the drinks when she activated it in her hotel room. She claims it overheated and then blew up, sending her to the hospital.

“I went to pick it up, but it was too hot,” Harris said. “I pulled my hand off of it, it exploded. It was just sitting on the counter, no one had touched it. It just blew all over everything.”

When it works, the coffee heats when a seal at the bottom of the can is pushed in, releasing a small amount of water that, when mixed with the calcium oxide in a cone within the package, causes an exothermic reaction that heats the liquid to a toasty 140 degrees.

Groux blames his can suppliers for designing and manufacturing defective products, and his company is currently involved in litigation with OnTech, which trumpeted its design of the self-heating mechanism and subcontracted its manufacture on behalf of BrandSource.

“We’re just the marketers, and the name,” Groux said. “We don’t make the can, we don’t fill the can, we don’t make the heating elements or the components or anything.”

But OnTech CEO Jonathan Weisz made it clear he believes the problems with the cans are a smoke screen for Groux’s financial problems.

“They owed us a lot of money – over a million dollars – and this is purely a retaliatory move,” Weisz said.

Both the Food and Drug Administration and the Consumer Products Safety Commission are investigating problems with the product, according to Groux. Representatives of both agencies refused to confirm those investigations. Weisz confirmed having been contacted by the FDA.

The letter from Puck Worldwide requesting the recall indicated that the company had become aware of what it termed “government scrutiny” of the lattes, among other issues.

According to Puck spokesman Robbie Vorhaus, the consumer complaints have become a large enough issue for the company to consider withdrawing BrandSource’s license to use Puck’s name to market the product.

“The product is not at the place where we, as the licensor would like it to be,” Vorhaus said. “What we have told Bob is, and what we’ve made very clear, is that with the quality and the standard that we expect, that there is always extra scrutiny. We suggested to him that he look at this more carefully.”

Featuring the name and reputation of the famous, Spago-owning Puck, the lattes debuted in the spring of 2005 to praise from mainstream news outlets and food-and-gadget-centric web sites alike. But complaints began to trickle in to BrandSource in the early fall, Groux said. They eventually became a pile several inches high, he said, and they were soon accompanied by returns of damaged and unwanted products from beverage retailers and distributors.

Lewis Hershkowits, the COO of Big Geyser, a New York-based beverage distributor, said his company stopped carrying the Wolfgang Puck product after about two months.

“I don’t think it was the right item for us anyway, but there were a lot of complaints from our customers,” Hershkowits said. “Retailers were complaining – their customers were saying they didn’t work, that sometimes they were sour or they just didn’t work.”

“The girls in our office liked them, but every fifth can was bad,” he added.

OnTech reportedly spent $45 million over 11 years developing the self-heating technology. In December, the company launched a similar line of self-heating coffee drinks under the Hillside Coffee label. The company also manufactures self-heating soups, hot chocolates, and teas.

OnTech’s launch campaign for the self-heating product is “It Does What?”

“It takes time to educate the world to what [self-heating] is about,” Weisz said.

While the move to develop Hillside was not a response to problems with the Puck partnership, Weisz said, the relationship had nevertheless soured because BrandSource had not been willing to pay for the increase in production costs that have accompanied rising oil prices.

“We’re not willing to ship any more product to them,” he said. “Right now, the cost is a bit high. I had hoped that the Wolfgang Puck relationship would have survived, but we’re very excited about what we have going on right now.”

OnTech has filed suit against BrandSource in a California court, seeking payment for the products it made for the Puck partners.

BrandSource, and Groux himself, is planning a counter-suit against OnTech and the two companies that have been part of the manufacturing process, claiming it has lost millions of dollars because of the defective products.

“They cut me off when I stopped paying, because they refused to stop issuing us credits for returned product,” Groux said.

A beverage industry veteran, Groux says his credibility – and his bottom line -- is in shambles as a result of the problems that have resulted from the problems with the cans.

“I wake up to a nightmare every day,” he said. “I have retailers calling me, suppliers calling me, I have to let half my people go, and I’ve been devastated all around.”

Karmacally Wrong?

Those Crazy Kids...

May is arraignment month for our favorite pair of Florida exhibitionists. As you may recall, Amber Mumma and Marcelo Gonzalez were arrested last month for lewd conduct after a Tampa cop observed the pair getting busy in a parking lot as strangers watched. Details of the couple's public tryst are contained in a Tampa Police Department report.

A copy of that rather graphic document can be found below. Gonzalez, 23, pleaded not guilty yesterday during a Circuit Court appearance, while Mumma, 19, is scheduled for her misdemeanor arraignment on May 15.

According to the police report, the intoxicated arrestees were spotted pressed up against a car in the parking lot of Peabody's Billiards as several onlookers (including one guy snapping away with a camera phone) watched their outdoor performance. Gonzalez and Mumma, pictured above in Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office mug shots, both work at Moe's Southwest Grill, a Tampa restaurant.

Study: US mothers deserve $134,121 in salary

A full-time stay-at-home mother would earn $134,121 a year if paid for all her work, an amount similar to a top U.S. ad executive, a marketing director or a judge, according to a study released on Wednesday.

A mother who works outside the home would earn an extra $85,876 annually on top of her actual wages for the work she does at home, according to the study by Waltham, Massachusetts-based compensation experts

To reach the projected pay figures, the survey calculated the earning power of the 10 jobs respondents said most closely comprise a mother's role -- housekeeper, day-care teacher, cook, computer operator, laundry machine operator, janitor, facilities manager, van driver, chief executive and psychologist.

"You can't put a dollar value on it. It's worth a lot more," said Kristen Krauss, 35, as she hurriedly packed her four children, all aged under 8, into a minivan in New York while searching frantically for her keys. "Just look at me."

Employed mothers reported spending on average 44 hours a week at their outside job and 49.8 hours at their home job, while the stay-at-home mother worked 91.6 hours a week, it showed.

An estimated 5.6 million women in the United States are stay-at-home mothers with children under age 15, according to the most recent U.S. Census Bureau data.


"It's good to acknowledge the job that's being done, and that it's not that these women are settling for 'just a mom,"' said Bill Coleman, senior vice president of compensation at "They are actually doing an awful lot."

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, some 26 million women with children under age 18 work in the nation's paid labor force.

Both employed and stay-at-home mothers said the lowest-paying job of housekeeper was their most common role, with employed mothers working 7.2 hours a week as housekeeper and stay-at-home mothers working 22.1 hours in that role.

"Every husband I've ever spoken to said, 'I'm keeping my job. You keep yours.' It's a tough one," said Gillian Forrest, 39, a stay-at-home mother of 22-month-old Alex in New York. "I don't know if you could put a dollar amount on it but it would be nice to get something."

To compile its study, surveyed about 400 mothers online over the last two months. offers a Web site ( where mothers can calculate what they could be paid, based on how many children they have, where they live and other factors. The site will produce a printable document that looks like a paycheck, Coleman said.

"It's obviously not negotiable," he said.

On average, the mother who works outside the house earns a base pay of $62,798 for a 40-hour at-home work week and $23,078 in overtime; a stay-at-home mother earned a base pay of $45,697 and $88,424 in overtime, it said.

In a study conducted last year, stay-at-home mothers earned $131,471. The potential earnings of mothers who work outside the home was not calculated in the previous study.

Contract of Wifely Obligations???




A "slavery contract" may play a central role in a messy divorce case involving a Wisconsin businessman and his estranged wife, who allegedly agreed to the bizarre pact several years before their 2005 marriage. The six-page unsigned pact, a copy of which you'll find below, spells out explicit rules for the relationship between "Master" Kevin Anderson and "slave" Kimberly O'Brien. The contract, which notes that it is "no way legally binding in a court of law," also stipulates what kind of punishment would be handed out by Anderson, 50, if O'Brien, 45, violated its terms. The contract was filed as an exhibit to a civil complaint filed in late-March by O'Brien, who claims that her estranged husband forced her into the slavery deal and later beat her for violating a separate demand that she remain naked at all times while in the couple's home.
