An engineer at Mumbai airport died after being sucked into the engine of an Air India plane, the company said.
The deadly incident happened late Wednesday as the Airbus A319 was being towed backward from the parking bay in preparation for taxiing out, said Anil Mehta, an Air India official.
    The engineer, Ravi Subramanian, was standing near the landing gear under the plane's nose as he supervised the process, Mehta told CNN.
    Passengers had boarded the aircraft for a flight to the city of Hyderabad. It wasn't clear if any of them saw what happened.
    Air India officials declined to give any further details, saying the country's civil aviation regulator is investigating the engineer's death.

    Attempted Red Beer Murder

    HAMILTON – A Hamilton man who shot his neighbor and killed his dog over a disagreement on the ingredients of “red beer” will spend the next 20 years in prison.
    Monte Leon Hanson, 60, was sentenced Thursday on a charge of attempted deliberate homicide and a misdemeanor count of animal cruelty. Hanson had pleaded guilty to the charges as part of an agreement that included the 20-year prison term.
    On Thursday, Ravalli County District Judge James Haynes tacked on an extra 10 years suspended after noting Hanson’s apparent lack of remorse, documented by the fact that he told another inmate he would do it again if given the chance.
    The judge ordered that Hanson not be considered for parole unless the parole board can be certain that he’s not a danger to the public and that he is fully compliant with mental health recommendations, said Deputy Ravalli County Attorney Angela Wetzsteon.
    “That was my concern, too,” Wetzsteon said. “He wouldn’t disclose his mental health information to us. Without that, we can’t be sure that he’s not a danger to the community. Until we know that for certain, I don’t think he should be paroled at all.”
    Hanson was arrested in May not far from the Hamilton apartment building where he shot his 29-year-old neighbor, Joe Lewis.
    Court records said Lewis was working as a bartender at the Rainbow Bar on the night of May 9 when Hanson came in and ordered a “red beer” about 10 p.m.
    No long after that, Hanson became angry when he discovered that Lewis had used Clamato instead of tomato juice to make his drink. Hanson said it was against his religion, Judaism, to drink Clamato.
    Four hours later, Lewis arrived home. He went inside his apartment and picked up his dog, Jackson, to carry it outside. The dog recently had a toe removed and couldn’t get around very well.
    Lewis was still holding his dog when Hanson started shooting.

    2,186 Sheep Smell-up airplane

    Well, this is one for the record books: flatulent sheep forced a cargo plane to make an emergency landing this week.
    Singapore Airlines Boeing 747-400 freighter plane traveling from Sydney to Kuala Lumpur had 2,186 sheep on board, and the combined stench of their “exhaust fumes” and manure set off the smoke alarm.
    The crew, thinking the alarm was due to, you know, fire, quickly diverted to Bali and made an emergency landing. Of course, when emergency services boarded, they didn’t find any fire or smoke — but they did find the natural emissions of 2,000 sheep. Two and a half hours later, the herd and the crew were on their way again. 
    This isn’t the first time animals have wreaked their own special brand of havoc on a Singapore Airlines plane. In August, another aircraft was carrying a flock of storks from Istanbul to Singapore, and soon after takeoff, the birds pecked a hole in the nose of the plane.
    In the case of the sheep, the hoofers didn’t cause any damage. Apparently though, bloat and flatulence are common occurrences when animals like cattle, sheep, and sheep are under stress.
    Now we’ve heard everything. Thank goodness we didn’t have to smell it.

    Fish Attack

    WHITEHALL, Mich. (AP) — A 61-year-old western Michigan man has been injured after his girlfriend slugged and poked him with a mounted sailfish during an argument.
    WOOD-TV reports ( ) that the man was sketching the fish early Sunday morning in his Whitehall home, northwest of Grand Rapids.
    Police say his 58-year-old girlfriend became angry and moved the fish which fell and broke. She blamed the man for the damage and hit him on the head with the fish. His hand also was cut by the sailfish's sword-like bill.

    The couple had been drinking and no arrests were made. Police say Muskegon County prosecutors will review the case.

    British Manure Remover Sentenced for Sexually Abusing Horse

    10- 28 -2015

    A married father-of-three has been jailed for 14 months after he admitted sexually assaulting a horse.
    Alan Blackman, was arrested after the animal was found injured at stables in Norfolk, in August.
    Following the discovery of the horse, Norfolk Police circulated several CCTV images of a man arriving at the stables in Redenhall.
    The 31-year-old removals man had protested his innocence after seeing the appeal.
    But he later admitted the attack, which police said lasted more than an hour, as well as trespass with intent to commit a sexual offence.
    The horse was treated for internal injuries and police said it would need further surgery.

    'Horrifying crime'

    Blackman's wife, Sarah, 25, sat in the public gallery as Norwich Crown Court heard he had filmed himself abusing the horse.
    Judge Katharine Moore told him: "You recorded this possibly because it was something you yourself might watch again or because it was something you might want others to watch.
    "Unfortunately as a result of your actions, the horse sustained injuries."
    Blackman said he was high on cocaine and amphetamines and could not remember the attack. He had also consumed large amounts of alcohol.
    CCTV footage showed him fetching containers to stand on in an attempt to have full sex with the animal.
    Speaking after sentencing, Det Sgt Alison Clabon said: "This was a shocking attack, which was not only distressing for the horse, but for the owners too.
    "Blackman targeted a defenceless animal causing serious injuries, which is particularly harrowing. No-one or no animal deserves to endure this kind of attack.

    "Crimes such as this are very rare and today's sentencing will hopefully send out a strong message that this sort of criminality will not be tolerated and the justice system will come down hard on those who feel they can get away with such a horrifying crime."

    Graywolf Temporarily Sidelined

    To all my loyal followers on Bizarre Stuff, I have not posted for some while because I had a probable malignant tumor in my bladder. Fortunately, it was successfully removed by surgery and all appears to be well.

    Thank you for your kind thoughts, if you had any. And, I got to keep the vagina gun.

    The Graywolf

    Who Needs a Holster? Just Use Ashley's Vagina.

    WACO, Texas – Officers searching a woman after a traffic stop found a fully-loaded pistol in her vagina, Waco police said.
    Just before 11 p.m. Monday, officers stopped a 1998 Toyota Land Rover at 15th and Blair in north Waco for a traffic violation. During the stop, officers discovered the driver of the vehicle, Gabriel Garcia, 30, who
    allegedly had 2.7 grams of methamphetamine under his driver's seat. A further search of the car allegedly uncovered another 29.5 grams of meth and weighing scales in the purse of the female passenger, Ashley Cecilia Castaneda, 31.

    Because the traffic stop occurred within 1,000 feet of an elementary school, both Garcia and Castaneda were arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine in a drug-free zone, Waco police Sgt. Patrick Swanton said.

    While Castaneda was being transported to jail, she told an officer she had concealed a handgun in her vagina. Officers immediately stopped and a female officer searched the suspect, finding a loaded Smith and Wesson .22-caliber pistol with a round chambered in her vagina.
    The weapon was taken into evidence and Castaneda was also charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon.

    Eyeballs in Asshole


    Police made a routine traffic stop early Thursday morning and got more than they bargained for when Roy Tilbott, 51, stepped out of his El Camino for a field sobriety test and Casper police noticed several eyeballs slide from his right pant leg onto the road.
    Feeling they could have a potential murderer on their hands, police quickly drew guns and cuffed Tilbott.
    Tilbott assured police the eyeballs were not human, but instead cow eyeballs he had pilfered from Johnson Meats (a slaughterhouse) where Tilbott is employed as a butcher.
    Above: Bovine eyeball from Tilbott’s rectum. A total of 30 were found. Image Source: Casper Police Department
    “Company won’t let us take animal scraps home and instead toss them in the landfill,” Tilbott said in the police report. “They’re a very wasteful company. We should be allowed to take scrap meat and other parts home. The company should start a green initiative. They don’t even have recycling at the plant.”
    Tilbott explained his actions:  “I enjoy eating bovine eyeballs and smuggling them out in my colon was the only way I knew how to get them out without potentially getting caught and fired.”
    Tilbott told police he estimates he has smuggled several thousand eyeballs from the plant over the past few months.
    “I put them in soups,” Tilbott said in the police report. “They’re beneficial for erectile dysfunction, which I currently battle, but I also just like the texture and taste.”
    Tilbott was arrested for driving under the influence, his BAC two times higher than the legal limit, plus he was in possession of several large carving knives possibly stolen from the meat packing plant, but Tilbott has not been charged with theft as police need to further investigate to determine who the knives belong to.
    Police are also unsure whether to charge Tilbott with theft for the bovine eyeballs. They are waiting to talk with Tilbott’s employer first.

    World's Biggest Boob Implants

    28 June, 2015 Mayra Hills, also known as the adult model Beshine, has the biggest implants ever. Her boobs are officially measured at 32Z, which is unfathomable for a woman of her frame. She uses her "honkers" for fame and money. While she may be young right now, she will most likely have these headlamps
    removed when she gets to the age of 40. All that weight will be bad for her back, after all. Previous Story Cops turned Child Predators Next Story 15 Reasons Why Chris Pratt is the Sexiest Human Specimen Alive

    Porcupine Spoils Python's Dinner

    June 28, 2015 Porcupine spoils python's dinner. An overly ambitious or extremely hungry python made the mistake of swallowing a porcupine whole. This is how pythons eat. They squeeze their prey to death and then swallow the entire carcass. The porcupine's quills made mincemeat of the python's digestive tract, resulting in the death of both animals. Porcupine quills have very little nutritional value so the snake might have starved anyway, following a huge case of heartburn.

    Cop Dies During 3-way Sex - Wife Wins $3M Lawsuit

    By Douglas Stanglin, USA TODAY Updated 2012-06-11 3:10 PM A jury has awarded a Georgia woman $3 million over her husband's heart attack, finding that his doctor should have warned the Atlanta cop against strenuous activity like the three-way sex he was having at the time he died, WXIA-TV reports. William Martinez, a 31-year-old Atlanta police officer, collapsed and died while he and a male friend were having sex with a woman who was not his wife at an Atlanta airport motel in 2009. The jury on Friday found that Dr. Sreenivasulu Gangasani and the Cardiovascular Group were 60% to blame for Martinez's death from atheroschlerotic coronary artery disease, agreeing with the plaintiff that the doctor did not properly diagnose and treat Martinez for high blood pressure, chest pains, shortness of breath and irregular heartbeat. They also charged that Gangasani did not warn Martinez to avoid strenuous physical activity until more tests could be done. "The type of sex that he was engaged in is the type that's totally unacceptable to our community," said Martinez family attorney Rod Edmond on Friday. "But the fact of the matter is this man could have died running on the treadmill, running after a criminal." Last week, a Gwinnett County jury agreed, finding Gangasani "negligent." But their verdict form also found William Martinez 40% responsible for his own death. That shared responsibility reduced the award to his widow from $5 million to $3 million, WXIA-TV reports. Gangasani's attorney says the doctor intends to appeal the verdict.

    Idiot Survived Sydney to London Trip in a Box

    The copycat who nearly died air-mailing himself home By Jason Caffrey BBC World Service 7 April 2015 Last month the Magazine wrote about Reg Spiers, who posted himself from London to Australia in a box in 1964. Spiers inspired another stowaway, Welshman Brian Robson, whose journey in the opposite direction was less successful - he was lucky to survive. "Australia was a complete shock to my system," says Brian Robson. "I found it very difficult, and thought from the moment I got there I wanted to get out as quickly as possible." But he couldn't just buy a ticket home - he had arrived in Australia in late 1964 on an assisted immigration programme which committed him to spending two years in the country. His travel costs had been paid for by the Australian government, and he wouldn't be able to get a passport to legally leave the country until he had done his time. He took a "boring and lonely" job as a railway ticket clerk, which left him feeling isolated. And despite having some relatives in Australia, he was homesick and desperate to return home. So when a relative who was sailing to the UK suggested Robson stow away on his ship, he decided to try his luck. He used a visitor's pass to get on board, and stayed on the boat until it sailed. But the plan unravelled just hours into the voyage when Robson became violently seasick, and he was taken to the vessel's medical bay by one of the crew. His subterfuge was soon discovered, and he was put off the ship in New Zealand. With little choice but to accept financial help from another relative in Australia, Robson flew back to Sydney, where he read about the exploits of Reg Spiers. Inspired by Spiers's trip from London to Perth in a wooden crate, Robson decided he would send himself in the opposite direction using the same method. "From the moment I read it in the newspaper I convinced myself I had no choice," says Robson. "That's what I had to do." He made his way to Melbourne where he persuaded two friends to help him realise his plan. "At first they said I was completely mad. I spent maybe a week persuading them and they agreed to do it." The next step was to approach the airline, Qantas. Robson needed to check what size of crate he could air-freight back to the UK, and if, like Spiers, he could send himself cash-on-delivery. Then he went to a builders' merchant and bought the crate he would travel in - a wooden box measuring 30 x 26 x 38 inches (76 x 66 x 96cm). "I had the crate delivered to the back of the building where I was living, and left it there for a couple of days while we planned the next stage." I couldn't stretch my legs and I couldn't turn around - I was more or less stuck in that position Robson wanted to convince Qantas the crate was carrying a computer being shipped back to the UK for maintenance and servicing. "One of my mates produced an invoice at work on company documents. I took it to Qantas personally, and checked I could send the crate directly by the quickest route, which was about 36 hours," he says. "I told them we had to make arrangements for it to be collected in London, so wanted the precise flight number." Confident that his plan would work, Robson decided on a departure date and set about preparing for the journey. The crate was strengthened and fitted with a rope harness to hold him in place. One side of the box was nailed shut by Robson himself from the inside. "I had a pair of pliers which I could use to pull the nails out on arrival in London." With less generous proportions than the box Reg Spiers had built for himself, Robson had far less room for manoeuvre, and it was all the more cramped because he put a large suitcase into the crate as well. "I could fit in there OK as long as I sat down with my knees pressed up in my chest. My back was to the suitcase. It was quite large, which obviously reduced my movements inside even more. "I couldn't stretch my legs and I couldn't turn around," he says. "I was more or less stuck in that position, which at first was quite comfy but later proved not so sensible." Brian Robson (left) arrived back in London in May 1965 Robson packed two pillows into the crate, as well as a torch and two bottles - one for water and one for urine. The first leg of his journey, from Melbourne to Sydney, went smoothly. But from there his plan started to go badly wrong. "They left me on the tarmac, but I was dumped upside down. I was strapped in standing on my head. I tried to turn around but there wasn't enough space, it was impossible. "It becomes painful very quickly, throbbing in your neck and the top of your head. Your neck is taking all the weight so it becomes excruciatingly painful. The blood is rushing to your head. You get blackouts. I was in serious pain." Robson spent 22 punishing hours upside down in his crate, but was never tempted to reveal himself. "It was London or die - that's how serious I felt about it." I had difficulty breathing and I started to get pain in my elbows and knees Eventually, much to his relief, the crate was turned upright again and loaded on to another aircraft. Airborne once more, Robson thought nothing would now stop him from getting back home. But what he didn't know was that the Qantas flight he thought he would travel on was full, so the airline instead loaded him onto a Pan American aircraft which would take a much slower route back to the UK. Robson was travelling in a hold that wasn't heated, and as the journey continued his situation became increasingly serious. "I had difficulty breathing," he says, "and I started to get pain in my elbows and knees. Slowly, just about every joint in my body started aching. They were swelling - my ankles were swelling really badly." Robson's "thinking went haywire". He slipped in and out of consciousness, tormented by a nightmare in which he was thrown out of the aircraft mid-flight. "It sounds crazy when you think about it now. But I spent some really terrifying hours." His aircraft finally touched down and he was taken, still in his crate, out of the hold to a freight shed. Thinking he must be back in the UK, he tried to check the time and date on his watch. But still in extreme pain, and barely able to move, he first needed his torch, clipped to the inside of the crate only 20cm in front of him. "I got hold of that torch and turned it on, but then I dropped it. There was no way I could pick it up," says Robson, "I just couldn't do any more. The torch was at the bottom of the crate, turned on." A freight handler, Gary Hatch, spotted the light shining out through a gap between the crate's wooden boards. He decided to investigate and managed to work open a hole in the box. Robson's rescuer, Gary Hatch poses inside the crate with his suitcase When he peered inside, he was shocked to see what he thought was a dead body inside. Robson couldn't speak or move and was unable to signal that he was alive. Hatch promptly disappeared, returning a short while later with a large cohort of customs officers, doctors and police. After a heated debate about the crate's legal status, they decided to break it open. Robson's ordeal was over. After eight months he had escaped Australia - but he wasn't in London. The startled officials spoke with American accents. Robson was in Los Angeles. "It took three or four of them to take me out of the crate, and as they laid me on my back my legs stayed in the same position as when I was sitting in the crate. They forced my legs down, and my body came up. It was a pretty dangerous thing, but did I ever think of giving up? Absolutely not "Of course, between them they held me down and straightened my legs. And then they took me to hospital." Media interest in Robson's story was huge, and he even did some television interviews while he was recovering in hospital, telling reporters it felt "terrible" to be shipped by crate. As he recovered his voice he was able to explain to the FBI that he had not been kidnapped, and was not a spy, but simply a homesick Welshman trying to get back to the UK. The question remained what to do with Robson. Although he was in the US illegally, the American authorities decided not to press charges. But responsibility for stowaways lies with the company that carries them - in this case the unwitting Pan American. The airline could have sent Robson back to Australia, but, perhaps keen to ride the wave of positive publicity around his escapade, it decided instead to send him to London - first class. All told, Robson had spent four days folded inside his crate. He had been lucky to survive, and he fears he could easily have frozen to death had he been loaded on to the final leg from Los Angeles to London, which would have flown over the northern ice cap. "I am 70 years old now," he says. "On reflection, kids don't think straight. I think most teenagers, youth of those days and certainly of these, make their mind up to do something and don't think of the consequences. "It was a pretty dangerous thing, but did I ever think of giving up? Absolutely not, that was the last thing that went through my mind." For a while Robson enjoyed his new-found celebrity, before leaving his home city of Cardiff to set up a string of retail businesses. He's written a film script of his adventure, which he hopes might yet be picked up by a production company, and he's even been back to Australia for a holiday. "At that time there were no computers and you didn't need a visa for Australia. So I don't think anybody knew I was there."

    Snuff Killing of California Woman

    California woman killed by gravel dumped on her car in driveway SAN FRANCISCO | By Emmett Berg (Reuters) - A San Francisco-area woman was crushed to death in her driveway by a load of gravel that spilled accidentally from a dump truck onto her car as she was about to move the vehicle at the request of construction workers, authorities said on Tuesday. The tragedy occurred on Monday afternoon while sidewalk construction was under way along a half-mile stretch of the woman's street in the East Bay town of Martinez, according to an initial report gathered by workplace safety inspectors. “Someone knocked on her door, the lady came out, then actually the chain of events that happened from there are under investigation as to how the gravel load came down onto the woman’s car, pinning her and killing her inside,” said Julia Bernstein, a spokeswoman for California's Occupational Safety and Health Division. “It was not expected, and it was absolutely an accident,” she said. The Contra Costa County coroner's office identified the victim as Lindsey Combs, 32, who according to her Facebook profile was a hairdresser and the mother of a 4-year-old girl. Martinez police were not immediately available for comment. State safety inspectors have six months to investigate and report on the incident, including any citations or fines that might be issued should workplace infractions be found. Bernstein said the general contractor for the project was cited in 2009 and 2010 for such regulatory violations as failing to post proper signs.

    Penis Theft Hurting Congo Men

    Penis theft panic hits city.. KINSHASA | By Joe Bavier (Reuters) - Police in Congo have arrested 13 suspected sorcerers accused of using black magic to steal or shrink men's penises after a wave of panic and attempted lynchings triggered by the alleged witchcraft. Reports of so-called penis snatching are not uncommon in West Africa, where belief in traditional religions and witchcraft remains widespread, and where ritual killings to obtain blood or body parts still occur. Rumors of penis theft began circulating last week in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo's sprawling capital of some 8 million inhabitants. They quickly dominated radio call-in shows, with listeners advised to beware of fellow passengers in communal taxis wearing gold rings. Purported victims, 14 of whom were also detained by police, claimed that sorcerers simply touched them to make their genitals shrink or disappear, in what some residents said was an attempt to extort cash with the promise of a cure. "You just have to be accused of that, and people come after you. We've had a number of attempted lynchings. ... You see them covered in marks after being beaten," Kinshasa's police chief, Jean-Dieudonne Oleko, told Reuters on Tuesday. Police arrested the accused sorcerers and their victims in an effort to avoid the sort of bloodshed seen in Ghana a decade ago, when 12 suspected penis snatchers were beaten to death by angry mobs. The 27 men have since been released. "I'm tempted to say it's one huge joke," Oleko said. "But when you try to tell the victims that their penises are still there, they tell you that it's become tiny or that they've become impotent. To that I tell them, 'How do you know if you haven't gone home and tried it'," he said. Some Kinshasa residents accuse a separatist sect from nearby Bas-Congo province of being behind the witchcraft in revenge for a recent government crackdown on its members. "It's real. Just yesterday here, there was a man who was a victim. We saw. What was left was tiny," said 29-year-old Alain Kalala, who sells phone credits near a Kinshasa police station.

    Iowa Mailman Shortens Work Week - Punches Out Girlfriend

    Associated Press March 20, 2015 DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A former Des Moines mail carrier has been sentenced to a year of probation for throwing 63 pieces of mail off a bridge last May instead of delivering them. Court documents show Shayne L. Lovelady, 29, agreed to plead guilty on Jan. 21 to "desertion of mail." Prosecutors agreed to drop a charge of mail destruction. He was sentenced Thursday. Lovelady was working as a rural mail carrier for the U.S. Postal Service delivering mail for the South Des Moines post office on May 19, documents filed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Virginia Bruner in federal court in Des Moines said. "Rather than deliver the mail or return the undelivered mail to another postal service employee, Lovelady 'pitched' approximately 63 pieces of various classes of mail over the side of a bridge before returning to South Des Moines Station," documents said. Lovelady was immediately placed on off-duty status then fired July 26, said John Friess, a spokesman for the postal service in an email message. The mail Lovelady tossed was later recovered and delivered, Friess said. "The Postal Service prides itself on providing excellent customer service and consistently monitors and supervises the work habits and methods of our employees to protect the mails and ensure we are providing timely and efficient service to our customers," he said. Lovelady was indicted Oct. 29. He faced a maximum sentence of a year in prison and a fine of up to $100,000. He didn't immediately reply to an email message Friday and his telephone number was disconnected. Prosecutors sought probation, home confinement with work privileges allowing him to travel to work, and community service. "Lovelady has a pattern of taking the easy way out and using his position to defraud the community," Bruner wrote in a sentencing memorandum filed March 16. In 2006, Lovelady pleaded guilty to fraudulent practices for unlawfully receiving unemployment benefits. He also pleaded guilty to unauthorized use of a credit card after he bought two $300 Sears gift cards with someone else's credit card. He served 30 days in jail for violating his probation on both offenses when he failed to complete community service and pay restitution. In September 2013 he pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct for striking his girlfriend in the face. Senior Judge James Gritzner on Friday imposed a year of probation and a $25 mandatory assessment with no fine.

    Ultra-Orthodox Jews' Bizarre Circumcision Practice

    NYC, Orthodox Jews reach deal on circumcision suction ritual. Associated Press By VERENA DOBNIK February 24, 2015 In this 2015 photo, Abraham Romi Cohn is shown using an antiseptic mouth wash before proceeding with a ritual circumcision, of Yosef Sananas in New York. Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration is negotiating a medical protocol that would allow for religious freedom as it navigates health officials concerns over the practice of oral suction during ultra-Orthodox circumcision ceremonies, in which a rabbi sucks blood from a wound on the penis. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig) NEW YORK (AP) — The city said Tuesday it has reached a tentative agreement with members of the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community over a tradition known as oral suction circumcision. Health officials have linked 17 cases of infant herpes since 2000 to the ancient ritual of sucking blood from the wounds on the infants' penises. On Tuesday, Mayor Bill de Blasio's administration said mohels, as the circumcisers are called in Yiddish, should no longer be required to obtain signed consent forms before the rites. Administration officials said they will ask the Board of Health to vote to rescind the requirement while working with a coalition of rabbinical leaders and medical experts to educate members of the ultra-Orthodox community about the possible dangers of the practice, known as metzitzah b'peh in Hebrew. A vote is expected in June. If an infant is found to have herpes after a circumcision, officials will ask a rabbinical coalition to identify the mohel who performed it so his DNA can be tested. If he's found to have infected the infant, he'll be banned from performing the ritual. Oral suction circumcisions first came under scrutiny in 2012 during Mayor Michael Bloomberg's administration, which asked parents or guardians to sign consent forms indicating they understood the medical risks. But the city's mohels, believed to perform more than 3,000 rites annually, say they apply strict medical procedures, including testing for herpes, sterilizing their hands and rinsing with mouthwash before the ceremony. Rabbi A. Romi Cohn, who has performed 35,000 circumcisions, said he believes babies could have contracted the herpes virus from sources other than mohels. Officials said Tuesday that DNA testing by health officials likely would prove or disprove whether there's a match between an infected infant and a mohel. If not and a baby still tests positive, health officials will try to seek the source of the herpes, which often results in skin blisters. Officials said the new agreement fulfills the mayor's commitment to find a more effective policy that protects children and religious rights. "Increasing trust and communication between the city and this community is critical to achieve the administration's ultimate goal of ensuring the health and safety of every child, and this new policy seeks to establish a relationship based on engagement and mutual respect," the administration said in a statement. Details of the agreement haven't been finalized, but officials concede it's impossible to enforce the proposed measures in a community that practices its religious freedom in private. Mohels have produced only one signed consent form in recent years, and rabbis have urged their faithful not to comply. Of the 17 cases cited since 2000, two were reported in 2013 and four were reported last year. Families refused to name four of the six mohels, and the other two declined to be tested, the city's Department of Health said. De Blasio's administration, asked by The Associated Press whether it still links all 17 cases to oral suction rites given that DNA testing wasn't performed in all of them, said it couldn't immediately provide an answer. The administration will ask hospitals, obstetricians and pediatricians who serve the community to distribute information about infants' health risks associated with herpes, which they say can lead to brain damage or death. The rabbinical coalition has pledged to cooperate with city health officials in identifying any mohel in question and asking him to undergo testing, administration officials said. The new protocol roughly mirrors that of Rockland, a county north of New York City that's home to thousands of ultra-Orthodox Jews.

    Man Has First Penis Transplant

    CAPE TOWN (Reuters) - South African doctors have successfully performed the world's first penis transplant on a young man who had his organ amputated after a botched circumcision ritual, a hospital said on Friday. The nine-hour transplant, which occurred in December last year, was part of a pilot study by Tygerberg Hospital in Cape Town and the University of Stellenbosch to help scores of initiates who either die or lose their penises in botched circumcisions each year. "This is a very serious situation. For a young man of 18 or 19 years the loss of his penis can be deeply traumatic," said Andre van der Merwe, head of the university's urology unit and who led the operation said in a statement. The young patient had recovered full use of his manhood, doctors said, adding that the procedure could eventually be extended to men who have lost their penises to cancer or as a last resort for severe erectile dysfunction. "There is a greater need in South Africa for this type of procedure than elsewhere in the world, as many young men lose their penises every year due to complications from traditional circumcision," Van der Merwe said. The patient, who is not being named for ethical reasons, was 21 years old when his penis was amputated three years ago after he developed severe complications due to a traditional circumcision as a rite of passage into manhood. Finding a donor organ was one of the major challenges of the study, a statement by the university said. The donor was a deceased person who donated his organs for transplant, doctors said without elaborating. Each year thousands of young men, mainly from the Xhosa tribe in South Africa, have their foreskins removed in traditional rituals, with experts estimating around 250 losing their penises each year to medical complications. Initiates are required to live in special huts away from the community for several weeks, have their heads shaved and smear white clay from head to toe and they move into adulthood. Another nine patients will receive penile transplants as part of the study, doctors said, but it was not clear when the operations could be carried out.

    Dwarf Tossing Illegal in Florida

    In Florida, no dwarf-tossing is allowed. Owners of commercial establishments where alcohol is sold may be fined up to $1,000 if they participate in or permit any contest of dwarf-tossing, since it was outlawed in 1989. A Florida state legislator tried to repeal the law in 2011, but wasn't successful. Dwarves sued to overturn the law in the early 1990s, claiming it was an infringement of their right to earn a living. Apparently dwarf-tossing is okay in a church or in an Elks Lodge, where no elk-tossing is allowed.

    Cannibalism Now Illegal in Idaho

    When it outlawed the act in 1990, Idaho became the only state to declare cannibalism illegal. The act is strictly prohibited and punishable by up to 14 years in prison, but it's okay to "willfully ingest the flesh or blood of a human being" in life-or-death situations — if it's the only apparent means of survival. Murder will get you life in prison or execution but serving a hunan head on a platter will only result in up to 14 years in prison. Be sure to serve victims live to be eligible for the lesser sentence.

    Necrophilia for Valentines

    Feb 13, 2015 COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) — A homeless man broke into a funeral home and had sex with a woman's body, police said Friday. Domonique Smith, 26, was arrested Feb. 9 when he was found with a bike stolen from the Hill Watson Peoples Funeral Service, and further investigation revealed that a body there had been disturbed during the burglary, police said. "The results of our investigation and the forensic examination gave us probable cause to believe that this individual had indeed sexually assaulted a dead body," said Columbus Police Maj. Gil Slouchick. Capt. Gordon Griswould told the Ledger-Enquirer of Columbus that Smith was found in a vacant home with other stolen property, including TVs and guns. Smith pleaded guilty to burglary, entering an unoccupied dwelling, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and theft by receiving stolen property, according to the newspaper. He is currently in jail. It's unclear if Smith has an attorney. He is expected to appear in court on the necrophilia charge Monday.

    Son Uses Dead Mom's Corpse to Withdraw Funds

    1/24/15 Police in Minnesota are investigating if a man wheeled his dead mother into a bank to withdraw funds in her name just hours before he reported her deceased. Up until her death two weeks ago, Caryl Vanzo, 90, had been living with her son David at his home in Plymouth. But just seven hours before he called local police to report his mom's death, the pair took a taxi to a local branch of Wells Fargo where they withdrew $850. David Vanzo denies that his mother was already dead when he took her to the bank and claims the $850 was from a joint account. He was arrested for elderly neglect after his mother's death two weeks ago Bank employees recalled seeing Caryl's feet dragging under the wheelchair and were unsure if she was breathing. A search warrant citing the employees says she 'did not move' and employees 'couldn't tell if she was breathing.' A neighbor who saw them leave in the taxi also wondered if Caryl was dead.

    Man Razes Wife's House

    1-6-2015 MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. (AP) — Police say a New York man demolished his upstate home without telling his wife he planned to tear it down. The Middletown Police Department says that when officers arrived Monday at the property owned by 48-year-old James Rhein's (rynz) wife they found him using an excavator to knock down the house. Officers say he didn't remove any household items, such as furniture, food and belongings. Instead, he dumped everything into large construction debris bins. Police say Rhein didn't call local utility companies to cancel gas, electric and water services, which were cut off by crews after officers alerted them. Rhein told police he was demolishing the house because it had a bad foundation. He was charged with criminal mischief and was released on bail. Police didn't know if he had a lawyer.

    Dumpster Diver

    Woodstock, Calif. (AP) — A man searching in a trash bin in California was scooped up by a garbage truck and taken on a long ride. A local newspaper reported the man survived the ride in the rear of the garbage truck. He was covered in refuse and fecal matter. His name was not released. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said the man got stuck in the trash truck when it made a pick-up Tuesday. The truck was headed to a landfill. Authorities said the man told police he used lumber in the truck to reach the top of the garbage pile to avoid being compacted. The man was taken to a hospital for complaints of back and neck pain and a hot bath. ___

    62-year-old woman finds python during nighttime potty visit news provider AP | Associated Press Published January 15, 2015 10:59AM EST S
    HARON, Pa. (AP) — A 62-year-old woman says she discovered a python on her bathroom floor when she went to take an overnight potty break. Debbie LaMotte tells The (Sharon) Herald ( ) that she first thought the snake was a scarf lying on the floor "because it had such a beautiful pattern." But when she prodded it with her cane, the snake's head moved. The incident happened about 4 a.m. Tuesday at her apartment in Riverview Manor in Sharon. That's about 60 miles northwest of Pittsburgh. Police came in and, LaMotte says, wound up using her "old lady grabber" — a long-handled device that helps people pick up items without bending over — to lift the snake into a bag. She believes the snake may have been a slither-away pet that squeezed under her front door.

    NY Man Has Giant Dick

    Jan.4, 2015
    The average adult penis, according to the Kinsey Institute, measures just under six inches when erect. Most men – about eighty-seven percent – are between five and seven inches. Dr. Alfred Kinsey found that the largest reported penis was a bit more than nine inches erect. The penis shown here is about average, say six inches. Jonah Falcon's penis is 9.5 inches flaccid, 13.5 inches erect. If you tense your forearm and wrap your hand around the middle of the muscle that is the girth of Falcon's erection. Those who have witnessed it describe it as "grotesque," "gorgeous," "hideous" and "stunning." Falcon, who stands five foot nine, thinks his penis is perfectly formed, with a fifteen-degree downward curvature at the six-inch mark and absent the blotching, lumpiness and sudden bends that mark some oversize sexorgans. A penis this size functions, physiologically, like any other, according to urologists, a claim substantiated by Falcon. But Falcon claims he has not been able to insert more than two-thirds of his oversized member into any woman with whom he has had intercourse. His balls are proportionately huge, each the size of a grade-A jumbo egg. When erect, Falcon's penis generates enough heat to warm hands – campfire style – from a distance of six inches.

    Florida Man Has Issues With Mom

    12/31/2014 Christian Gomez ended another bizarre year in Florida by d
    ecapitating His Mother. US police say they have charged the man with first-degree murder after he decapitated his mother on New Year's Eve. Florida officials said that 23-year-old Christian Gomez killed his mother with an axe on Wednesday. Officers found the body of Maria Suarez-Cassagne outside the family home in Oldsmar, Pinellas County. Mr Gomez, who had been diagnosed with schizophrenia, confessed to planning his mother's murder for two days. His older brother called police for help on Wednesday evening and said that his mother had been beheaded by Mr Gomez. Christian Gomez fled the scene after the attack but was arrested after another 911 call reported a suspicious person riding a bicycle in the area. Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said on Thursday that Mr Gomez had been upset with his mother for asking him to move some boxes and because he was jealous of the attention she paid to his brother. The sheriff said that the crime was one of the worst his department had ever seen.

    Dick or No Dick - You Make the Call

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. 1-1-15 (AP) — It was an embarrassing Christmas for Nivea Cabrera after she was accused by her fiance's mother of letting her 5-year-old granddaughter play with a sex toy. A mortified Carbrera asked the child where she got the penis-shaped plastic cylinder. "It's from my Play-Doh," the girl replied. Hasbro, the Pawtucket-based toy company, is now doing damage control over the extruder tool in its Play-Doh Cake Mountain toy. The two-piece syringe-like tool, which includes a tube with corkscrew-type ridges around the outside and a dome-shaped top with a hole at the tip, can be used to squeeze Play-Doh to look like decorative cake frosting. Complaints have been surfacing since at least November, when Tulsa, Oklahoma, TV station KTUL showed the tool to parents and asked them what they thought. The station blurred the image of the tool during the piece, saying it was due to parents' reactions. One woman told the station it was "a pretty phallic cake-decorating piece." After Christmas, comments started pouring in to Play-Doh's Facebook page, including from Cabrera, of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. She said Hasbro called her after she posted a photo of the tool and asked about the shape on Christmas Day. She said the company offered to send her a replacement tool in a different shape, which she has not received. Erin Rivers, a mother of two from Melbourne, Florida, thought it was hilarious when she helped her 6-year-old daughter open the box. "I pulled out this extruder tool, and I just started cracking up at it, I couldn't help it. Then I immediately put the Play-Doh in it and took a picture of," she said. Then, she posted it on Facebook. "My friends have just as dirty minds as I do," she said. "It was hysterical to me. And then I gave it my daughter to play with." She said her daughter and 4-year-old son don't notice anything strange about the toy. Hasbro Inc. has received thousands of comments on the Play-Doh Facebook page pointing out the obvious. "We are in the process of updating all future Play-Doh products with a different tool," it said in a statement posted on the page Tuesday. It also offered to replace the tool for anyone who has complaints. Rivers, who works in a pediatric dental office, says she's not upset at all. But she is flabbergasted that the toy slipped past so many layers of people at Hasbro. "They have to have someone who creates it, someone who makes the plastic mold, someone who plays with it," she said. "I can't imagine that as many people that probably saw the toy, not one person said, 'Does anyone else think this looks like a penis?'"
