“3D Porn Got Woman Pregnant” 

Fake News Item Gets Picked Up by Gizmodo

The Sensacionalista, a Brazilian satirical news site (think a low-scale Onion written in Portuguese), posted a story last week about an American woman who claimed she was impregnated by a 3D porn film. The quirky joke was soon being reported all over the internet as fact. And, this time, it wasn’t just some local affiliate news program that got duped; the popular tech site Gizmodo took the bait as well!
The original story was hilariously ridiculous. As the Sensacionalista “reported,” an American soldier named Erick Jhonson (the botched American name should have tipped someone off) returned from war to discover that his wife had given birth to a half black child. The only problem was, both he and his wife were white! When he confronted his wife, she claimed that she had been impregnated from watching a pornographic film shown in 3D. “Jhonson” was said to be suspicious of the story but not altogether unconvinced. The story includes a quote from him stating, “with today’s technology anything is possible.”
Funny, huh? Well, that jokey piece was soon translated to English and making its way from tech site to tech site, all the while being presented as a true story. Unfortunately, whoever translated it, didn’t also translate the Sensacionalista slogan: “the newspaper exempt from truth.” Soon enough, it ended up at the doorstop of Gizmodo, the technology blog owned by Gawker and famous recently for breaking the 4th generation iPhone story. Gizmodo passed the story along, much to the delight of the Sensacionalista who responded with this headline: “One of world’s largest online news publishes satire as if it were real.” Gizmodo quickly deleted the story, going so far as to clean out their online cache so no one could see it. All that is left are a few dead links on Google.
To make matters worse, the American tech blogs weren’t the only ones negatively affected by the mistake. The Sensacionalista is just a small website who took some random picture of a white woman with an interracial baby off the internet to accompany the story. As the story began picking up steam, The Brazilian site published this update (pardon the imperfect translation):
“A week ago we published an article about the woman who claimed to get pregnant after watching a porn movie 3d. The article was fake and we used the photo that we found on the Internet. Unfortunatelly, the article spread around the world because some sites thought that it was real. That was not our intention. Sensacionalista is a small site from Brazil. We never thought that this could happen. That’s why we are asking this family to accept our sincere apology. That woman and her baby in the photo had nothing to do with this article. They are just a normal family trying to live they’re own lives. We apologize for wrongfully taking their photo and putting it in our article. Please, not to publish this article again and next time check what you read before you write. This site is a humor site. Nothing here is real.”
We can only assume from reading this that the real woman pictured had been accused of cheating on her husband by people who recognized her from the photo. The Sensacionalista acted fast and removed the photo, presumably after being contacted by the woman, her family, or perhaps even her attorney.
The funniest part of the whole incident is the tone that most of these news articles took in reporting the story. Nearly every one insulted the “husband” for being stupid enough to believe such a ridiculous tale. Now what is it they say about the pot calling the kettle black?                    Text & Photo via Mediaite

Mom, daughter jailed after fight over man

Lisa W. Johnson Mug Shot

By Anthony Colarossi, Sentinel Staff Writer
EUSTIS A family feud between a Eustis mother and her daughter over the same man landed both women in the Lake County Jail on battery charges.
Officers responded to a Gr ;ove Street residence early Friday for an argument between Lisa W. Johnson, 46, and her daughter, Jessica Marie Fixl, 25. They had been arguing over a man named Richard Bowman, who, according to police reports, "is having sexual relations with both" women.
During their first visit to the home, police thought Johnson appeared intoxicated and told her to go to sleep, but about 20 minutes later they returned to find Johnson bleeding from her forehead. It was serious enough that paramedics had to respond, according to the report.
Johnson told officers that after they left she went to go to bed, but her daughter "struck her with a closed fist on the forehead because she was jealous," according to her arrest affidavit.
However, another witness at the scene, a juvenile, said Johnson entered the room where Bowman was staying and grabbed his crotch. She would not let go, the witness told Fixl and that's when she struck her mother, according to the report.
Bowman also told police Johnson grabbed him, saying at one point she was going to "rip them off."
Police learned that Bowman and Johnson had been living together as a couple for a year. But Johnson recently went to jail, and then Bowman and Fixl became involved, according to the affidavit.
About two weeks ago, Johnson returned from jail and resumed living with Fixl and Bowman. "At which time Bowman was having sexual relations with both women," the affidavit states.
Johnson was arrested on a charge of felony domestic simple battery on Bowman. It's a felony charge because she was convicted of criminal domestic abuse in 1991 and convicted of battery in early September.
Fixl was arrested and charged with domestic battery upon her mother because police said Bowman had the ability to defend himself against Johnson.
"Fixl had other options rather than battering her mother," the officer noted in Fixl's arrest affidavit. "Historically neither party [has] hesitated to call Eustis police to respond to settle their family disputes."
Fixl had blood on her fingernails and a ring that was missing stones, which cut Johnson's forehead, the affidavit states. The long cut is apparent in Johnson's jail photo.
Fixl's charge was also enhanced to a felony because she had a 2008 felony conviction, police said.

Time for the Christian right to start banning strokes!

Rugby player who had a stroke 

woke up gay and became hairdresser.

Chris Birch, 26, suffered a stroke during during a freak training accident when he attempted a back flip and broke his neck.
But folllowing his recovery he quit his bank job to become a hairdresser, grew to hate sport, called off his engagement and started dating a man.
"I was gay when I woke up and I still am," he said. "It sounds strange but when I came round I immediately felt different. I wasn't interested in women any more.
"I had never been attracted to a man before 
 I'd never even had any gay friends. But I didn't care about who I was before, I had to be true to my feelings."
Prior to the accident, Mr Birch was planning on settling down with his girlfriend and spent weekends playing sport and drinking with his mates. Mr Birch, of Ystrad Mynach, South Wales, said: "Suddenly I hated every­ thing about my old life. I didn't get on with my friends, I hated sport and found my job boring.
"I started to take more pride in my appearance, bleached my hair and started working out. I went from a 19st skinhead, to a 11st preened man. People I used to know barely recognised me and with my new look I became even more confident."
He retrained as a hairdresser and now lives with his partner Jack Powell, 19, above the salon he works in.
Two years ago it was reported that Alan Brown, from Malvern, Worcestershire, woke from a stroke to find he was able to paint and draw in incredible detail, despite no previous evidence of the skill.
The father of three said the experience must have 'flicked a switch' in the creative part of his brain.
And Mr Birch certainly has no regrets about his transformation. 'I'm nothing like the old Chris now but I wouldn't change a thing,' he said.
"I think I'm happier than ever, so I don't regret the accident.
Stroke Association spokesman Joe Korner said: "During recovery the brain makes new neural connections which can trigger things people weren't aware of, such as accent, language or perhaps a different sexuality."
Man With Giant Testicles

Big Cajones: Man with Giant Testicles Seeks Medical Help

By Buck Wolf
y friend Jonah Falcon, the man with the world's largest penis, often talks of how his massive member has been as much a curse as a blessing.
But Jonah on his worst day can't top one Vegas man's struggle with a massive organ 
 because Wesley Warren Jr. isn't trying to manage life with a big penis.
He's extra big just below 
 suffering from a 100-pound scrotum due to a condition called scrotal elephantiasis. That makes his sack a literal sack he needs to carry everywhere.
Warren recently told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that a million-dollar operation could fix it and change his life, and is soliciting donations though the e-mail address
Warren even called into the Howard Stern show to ask his listeners for help 
 and described how his penis is so completely overwhelmed by his massive scrotal sack that he urinates pretty much everywhere when he goes. The Review-Journal reporter even describes the "the unmistakable smell of urine" present while interviewing Warren.
Doctors say the condition is usually the result of an infection from a tropical insect... but Warren has never left the country. He says he accidentally hit his testicles on waking up one morning 
 and they swelled to the size of a soccer ball the next day. And since then, it's been growing and growing. 

Russian grave digger dresses up 29 bodies and puts them on display at home

Anatoly Moskvin had always been open about his interest in the dead and eagerly described how he loved to rummage through cemeteries, studying grave stones to uncover the life stories behind them.
What he failed to mention, according to police, was that he had dug up dozens of bodies and taken them back to his apartment, where he dressed them in women's clothes scavenged from graves and then put them on display.
A police video of the man's apartment in the Volga River city of Nizhny Novgorod released Monday shows his macabre collection of what look like dolls. Lifesize, they are dressed in bright dresses and headscarves, their hands and faces wrapped in what appears to be cloth. Police said they were mummified remains.
Instructions for doll-making were found in the apartment, police said, and the video showed old-fashioned plastic dolls in frilly dresses lying about.
Police refused to name the suspect arrested last week, but released photographs of him, gave his age as 45 and described him as a well-known specialist in the history of the city about 400 kilometers (250 miles) east of Moscow.
The 45-year-old historian who was considered the ultimate expert on cemeteries in Nizhny Novgorod.
Russian newspaper reports quoted police as saying that the man had only selected the remains of young women for his grisly collection.
Police said he had photographs and nameplates from grave sites, which could help with the identification of the remains.
The arrest followed a long-running investigation into the desecration of graves at several cemeteries in Nizhny Novgorod beginning in 2010, police spokeswoman Svetlana Kovylina said. She did not explain how they tracked him down.
The national daily Moskovsky Komsomolets said Moskvin was detained at a cemetery while carrying a bag of bones. But Kriminalnaya Khronika, an online publication specializing in crime news from the Nizhny Novgorod region, said police investigators discovered the bodies when they visited Moskvin to consult with him about the desecration.
Alexei Yesin, the editor of a local newspaper to which Moskvin contributed, said that he was shocked by the reports and couldn't understand how he could have squeezed all the bodies into his apartment, which he shared with his parents.
He described Moskvin as a loner who had "certain quirks," but said he gave no indication that he was up to anything so strange. "I saw no signs of that while working with him," Yesin said in a telephone interview.
Moskvin, who long had been known in the region for his interest in the dead, wrote several articles about cemeteries and historic sites in the region. A linguistic expert by training, he specialized in Celtic culture and studied 13 foreign languages.
In a 2007 interview with the newspaper Nizhegorodsky Rabochy, or Nizhny Novgorod Worker, Moskvin said he had begun wandering through cemeteries when he was in the seventh grade. "I don't think anyone in the city knows them better than I do," he said.
Moskvin claimed that from 2005 to 2007 he had inspected 752 cemeteries across the region, often traveling about 30 kilometers (20 miles) a day by foot.
He said he drank from puddles, spent nights in haystacks or at abandoned farms and once even slept in a coffin readied for a funeral. He said he was repeatedly questioned by police, who then always let him go.
Just last month, he wrote a piece for a publication on necrology to explain his interest in the dead. He said that when he was 12, he came across a funeral procession whose participants forced him to kiss the face of a dead 11-year-old girl.
"An adult pushed my face down to the waxy forehead of the girl in an embroidered cap, and there was nothing I could do but kiss her as ordered," Moskvin wrote in Nekrolog. He said he later grew interested in the occult.

After all that, this next item seems pretty normal...
