California Mom Does Son's Friend

Cops: Woman charged with having sex with 12 year-old

Nov. 29, 2011

A 43 year-old Orange County woman, described by some as a "hot pepper" has been charged with having sex with her son's friend, authorities said last Thursday. Her son and his friend are both 12 year-olds.

Patricia Ann Serrano, shown here, faces multiple counts of lewd acts on a child under 14, and could have her sentence enhanced for substantial sexual conduct with a child, according to the Orange County district attorney's office.

Serrano, the "hot pepper," is accused of having sex with the boy twice -- in a car and in her home, according to the district attorney' office.

The boy's mother discovered Serrano kissing her son in a room but didn't see any wrongdoing. She did become suspicious and called the police.

Serrano was arrested on Tuesday and is being held in lieu of $100,000 bond.

The D.A.'s office said the case is ongoing and asked anyone with information to contact them.

Searching For Love In All The Wrong Places

Wandering wolf inspires hope and dread

This Aug. 4, 2010 photo provided by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife shows a male wolf from the Wenaha pack after being fitted with a radio collar in northeastern Oregon. A young male from the Imnaha pack has become a celebrity since striking out for a new territory in search of a mate in September. His position has been tracked by GPS transmissions from his collar, showing he zigzagged 730 miles to end up 320 miles from home. Lately he has been in the southern Cascade Range.

GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) — A young wolf from Oregon has become a media celebrity while looking for love, tracing a zigzag path that has carried him hundreds of miles nearly to California, while his alpha male sire and a sibling that stayed home near the Idaho border are under a death warrant for killing cattle.

Backcountry lodge owner Liz Parrish thinks she locked eyes with the wolf called OR-7 on the edge of the meadow in front of her Crystalwood Lodge, on the western shore of Upper Klamath Lake, and hopes someday she will hear his howls coming out of the tall timber.

"I was stunned — it was such a huge animal," said Parrish, who has seen her share of wolves while racing dog sleds in Alaska and Minnesota. "He just stopped and stared. I stopped and stared. We had a stare-down that seemed like a long time, but was probably just a few seconds.

"He just evaporated into the trees. I stayed there awhile, hoping he might come back. He didn't."

Cattle rancher Nathan Jackson has not seen or heard the wolf, and hopes he never does.

"In this country, we worked really hard to exterminate wolves 50 years ago or so, and there was a reason," said Jackson, who ranches on the other side of Upper Klamath Lake from Parrish's lodge.

"A lot of people who don't have a direct tie to the agricultural community tend to view wolves as majestic, beautiful creatures. They don't seem so majestic and beautiful when they are ripping apart calves and colts."

Last February, OR-7 was in a snowy canyon in northeastern Oregon, when a state biologist shot him with a tranquilizer dart from a helicopter, then fitted him with a tracking collar and blue ear tags. State biologists have been able to chart his journey from GPS positions transmitted from the collar. They show he has traveled 730 miles on his meandering route, getting as far as 320 miles from home. And each time he crosses a county line, OR-7 makes it into the newspapers and on TV news.

The conservation group Oregon Wild has begun a contest to give OR-7 a different name, hoping to make him too famous to be shot, either by a poacher, rancher or government hunter. One entry came from as far away as Finland. The first came from a little girl in OR-7's home territory of Wallowa County, who suggested "Whoseafraida."

Shitty Deal Exposed In Florida

3 face prison time in special toilet paper scam

Nov 26 2011

Don't trust your toilet paper supplier. In a Federal case in Florida, 3 people who worked for a Septic tank company tricked customers into buying more than $1 million in unnecessary toilet tissue and other products because of alleged Federal regulations. In some cases enough toilet paper to last more than 70 years was sold to unwary customers.

The trio pleaded guilty in federal court to conspiring to commit wire fraud.

The Miami Herald reported (http://bit.ly/uNgbS7 ) that they worked for FBK Products. A phone number for the Riviera Beach-based company was not working Saturday. We wonder why?

The toilet paper crooks face up to two decades in prison when they are sentenced in February.

Woman Has Butt Enlarged - Gains 75 Pounds

Cops: Woman had butt enlarged with cement.

Sunday, November 20, 2011

Not the actual woman - a substitute butt

A woman who wanted to work at a nightclub started searching for someone who could perform plastic surgery at a cheap price to give her a curvier body. She wanted a bigger ass. Police say what she found was a woman posing as a doctor who filled her buttocks with cement, mineral oil and flat-tire sealant.

Oneal Ron Morris, 30, was arrested Friday after a year on the lam and has been charged with practicing medicine without a license with serious bodily injury.

Police photos show Morris as a small-framed woman with bee-stung pouty lips, arched eyebrows, oversized hoop earrings _ and a large backside. She was released from jail on bond.

The victim, who is not being named due to medical privacy laws, paid $700 for a series of injections in May 2010. She was referred to Morris by a friend.

Morris injected some type of tube in several sites around her bottom, pumping it full of a toxic concoction that included cement. Morris reassured the woman when the pain became too intense, police said.

Morris told the woman not to worry; she would just keep injecting her and it would all itself out.

After visiting two hospitals because of severe pain and infected sores on her butt she left without telling the doctors what she had done. Her mother eventually took her to a hospital on Florida's west coast, where alarmed doctors pressed her for information. They alerted the Department of Health.

The doctors knew no licensed physician in his right mind would ever do such a thing.

The victim is still recovering from the surgery and says it's too painful to work. She also has racked up numerous medical bills.

She gained a great deal of weight, concentrated in her butt. It was not clear if she ever got the nightclub job she sought.

Super Stupid Pilot Locks Self In John And Creates False Hijacking Scare

Nov. 19, 2011

Not the actual pilot. A substitute dummy.

A really dumb pilot for Chautauqua Airlines, operating a flight from Asheville, S.C. into La Guardia NY for Delta Airlines, locked himself in the lavatory of the aircraft 20 minutes before the scheduled landing. Unable to free himself, he compounded his stupidity by giving a male passenger with a thick foreign accent the password necessary to gain entrance to the cockpit and the co-pilot and flight attendant, to summon them for help. The latter wisely refused to open the door to the flight deck but radioed ahead to describe the situation. Just as the co-pilot was being cleared for an emergency landing, the dumb captain fought his way out of the toilet and declared all was well, except for his brain which was in terminal lapse.

No plans have yet been announced by Chautauqua for the involuntary retirement of the brain dead pilot. Does anyone else think major airlines should operate their own aircraft?

November 18, 2011
Kansas City

A suburban Kansas City woman was left sitting in a vinyl recliner for so long that her skin had fused to the chair and she had to be pried out to be taken to a hospital after suffering an apparent stroke, authorities said.

It was not immediately clear which of the two women shown above was the one fused. Authorities are still investigating and announced the investigation could take several months to a year and would require the 24/7 cooperation of the alleged victim in blue.

Oops...Man Loses Stomach Due To False Cancer Diagnosis

After rounds of chemotherapy and surgery that removed 80 percent of his stomach, Graham Lord learned he never had stomach cancer.

Australia - Nov. 14, 2011

The 59-year-old is now suing Australia's Central Coast Local Health District, after he said a 2010 post-op evaluation shed light on the false diagnosis.

"I was told that the tissue taken from me during that gastrectomy was examined through the pathology department at Royal North Shore [Hospital] and the lymph nodes that were taken out showed no evidence of cancer," he told the Sunday Telegraph. A second test confirmed the results.

Lord said he has suffered from anxiety and depression as a result of the surgery and can no longer eat sitting down.

"He would be seeking an apology from the hospital in terms of an admission of liability and compensation for his injuries," Anna Walsh, Lord's lawyer, told ABC Sydney.

Walsh told the Sunday Telegraph that a pathologist at Gosford Hospital, where the initial flub occurred, already apologized to Lord.

And The Bull Walked Around Ole

Maui bull freed after giant tire stuck on his head for 20 hours

Nov 09 2011

In this photo provided by the Triple L Ranch, Skywalker, a rodeo bull, is shown with a giant tire that was stuck to his head for about 20 hours in Kula, Hawaii Tuesday Nov. 8, 2011. The bull was unable to eat or drink with his head lodged in a truck tire dumped on the property. Ranch owner Paige De Ponte doesn't know how the tire ended up on Skywalkerýs head but she's hoping his plight raises awareness about using the rural Kenaio area as a dumping ground.

The 800-pound bull, named Skywalker, couldn't eat or drink after he got his head lodged in the truck tire that someone dumped at the Triple L Ranch in Maui, ranch owner Paige De Ponte said.

"He was uncomfortable and it took all day to get him out," she said Wednesday.

No one could get near the cranky bull Tuesday until Skywalker became exhausted enough for ranch worker Kawika Manoa to use a piece of wood to pry off the tire, which weighs more than 50 pounds. Skywalker didn't put up a fight and then went straight for the water trough after being released from the rubber ring, De Ponte said.

She didn't know how the tire ended up around Skywalker's neck, but she said she hopes his plight will raise awareness about using the rural Kanaio area, in the upcountry region of the island, as a dumping ground.

"My message to the public is to please remember that Kanaio is a community where generations have lived and prospered. Our open-range ranch has been here for 50 years and never have we ever seen such an event like this," she said. "I hope Skywalker's unfortunate predicament was more of a godsend at a time when we need people to recognize this beautiful place as a treasure and that small farmers such as ourselves depend on the public to respect us and the land more than ever."

The Maui News (http://bit.ly/uiIwF0) first reported Skywalker's predicament Wednesday.

The white bull seemed to be fine after the ordeal, De Ponte said, adding that no one has ever been able to stay on him for the full eight seconds during any Maui rodeo. None of the ranch's 17 other bulls has been successfully ridden either.

De Ponte's husband, Louis "Bully" De Ponte, was a champion bull-rider. He died in March.

Parents To Be Committed For Psychiatric Evaluation

Couple with 19 children conceive number 20.

Los Angeles, CA
Nov. 8, 2011

Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, in the rear in photo only, already have over- contributed to the world population explosion, which just reached 7 billion, by bearing 19 children.

The couple, who have exploited their bizarre reproductive habits for profit, just announced their 20th impending contribution to the population explosion.

Mimicking a pair of over-sexed rabbits, Michelle and Jim Bob have seen little of their children over the years because they spend most of their time coupling in the bedroom, or the garage, or the bathroom, or the kitchen, or the yard.

Public authorities have called for the involuntary separation of the couple to prevent their adding to the world's woes by continuing to add children.

When asked to comment by reporters, Jim Bob said, "Hey, man. I just like to screw. What's wrong with that?"

Black Rhinos Take Helicopter Trip Enroute To New, Secret Refuge 1500 Miles Away

Rhino Airlift Photos: Black Rhinoceros Transported To New Home By Air

Nov. 7, 2011
South Africa

To protect them from poachers who threaten their extinction, 19 critically endangered black rhinoceroses are being helicoptered out whilst under sedation, loaded onto awaiting land vehicles and transported 1500 miles across South Africa to Limpopo province and relocated in a secret area.

Suspended by their ankles, the 10 minute helicopter airlift has been determined to be the safest and least traumatic method to rescue these magnificent animals from almost certain extinction.

"I Think That I Shall Never See A Poem Lovely As A Tree"

Nov. 6, 2011
Arlington, Texas, USA

The author of this famous line, the American poet Alfred Joyce Kilmer, no doubt had never seen the tree depicted in this photo. Nature is capable of producing some grotesque life forms.

Whilst there are many beautiful trees, just as there are many beautiful poems, there is some lousy poetry in the world and a fair share of hideous trees.

Kilmer, 1886-1918, was killed in the First World War at the Second Battle of the Marne at the age of 31. He can perhaps be indulged because he didn't have the opportunity to see that many trees.

Murmuration: Chance Encounter Captures Stunning Phenomenon Of Starlings (VIDEO/PHOTOS)

Starling flock creates moving art in the sky

Murmuration: Chance Encounter Captures Stunning Phenomenon Of Starlings (VIDEO/PHOTOS)

A murmuration is a ritual act of a flock of birds (starlings) in preparation for roosting for the night. The birds swirl in synchronized motion for hours prior to nesting for the night, as a survival technique. No bird wants to be the first to land and all strive to be at the center of the flock and thus less susceptible to predators. Their synchronized flight creates waves of undulating birds that is natural art in motion.

This scene was captured on a chance encounter in Scotland, on Nov. 2, 2011 and was videotaped by two women in a row boat.

Hang 'Em High - Maybe Not - Down With Realism

Hanging-man Halloween display draws complaints

Oct 31 2011

DUBLIN, Ohio — An Ohio homeowner has moved a Halloween decoration of a hanging man because police said some busybodies found it too realistic and spooky. These were adults who were afraid of Halloween decoration.

Officers in the Columbus suburb of Dublin said they received five complaints about the 6-foot figure hanging in a tree close to a road. Police told WSYX-TV ( http://bit.ly/vGZmY3) that people found the display disturbing and feared it could cause a traffic accident.

No one could remember any instance of a traffic accident by a simulated man hanging on Holloween, however.

The homeowner, who asked not to be identified, tells the station that Halloween should be creepy and that his decoration was "all in good fun."

But he moved it to a tree closer to his house and away from the street. Where it used to hang, he has placed a sign that says: "less realistic decoration."

The cops were completely out of line in harassing this man and violating his First Amendment rights because some of his neighbors objected. What if he had put up a display of JESUS hanging on a cross?
