charmNigerian healer died after attempting to demonstrate the efficacy of his bulletproof charms to a client.

Chinaka Adoezuwe, 26, died when he told one his clients to shoot him in an attempt to test his charms.

“A young man had gone to [the healer] to prepare bulletproof charms for him, which the native doctor did. To prove the efficacy of the new charms, [he] positioned and handed over a gun to his customer. Tragedy struck,” the BBC reported, citing the Nigeria-based Punch Newspaper.

Police in Nigeria’s Imo state have arrested the client, according to the BBC, which reported that “charms are popular in Nigeria, where traditional healers are consulted for cures for various ailments.”

Even local police seemed to trust bulletproof charms more than the armor itself. Early this year, another article from Punch reported that several policemen admitted to having more confidence in being protected “the traditional way,” meaning that some officers were wearing a charm under their bulletproof vest.

“Even my wife knows about the charm and we are both Christians. She does not complain because at the end of the day, she does not want me to lose my life facing armed robbers. There is nothing wrong with double protection,” one officer told the publication.

Japan cybersecurity and Olympics minister: ‘I’ve never used a computer’

computerJapan’s recently appointed cybersecurity and Olympics minister has told parliament he has never used a computer in his life, though he is responsible for overseeing cybersecurity preparations for the 2020 Tokyo Summer Games.

Yoshitaka Sakurada, 68, was named to the two posts last month by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, having never held a cabinet position before during his 22 years in parliament.

The minister made the admission at a parliamentary committee meeting on Wednesday when asked by an opposition lawmaker if he was computer literate.

“I’ve been independent since I was 25 and have always directed my staff and secretaries to do that kind of thing,” Sakurada replied. “I’ve never used a computer!”

Sakurada had said that he recognized that “firmly carrying out cybersecurity from a citizen’s standpoint” was part of his job.

When asked by the lawmaker how someone lacking computer skills could be in charge of cybersecurity, Sakurada said policy was decided broadly by a number of people in his office and the national government, and he was confident there would be no problems.

77At 77 years old, Winifred Peel appears much like any other older lady. Living in a small town near Liverpool, she would go about her day at a modest pace, happily retired and never in a hurry. This active yet relaxed life suited Winny, and she felt safe in the comfort of the area she grew up in. Until one day, when that all changed.

It had been a cold morning when Winny left the house. She started her day walking through the town, up to her favorite café to grab some tea and a cake. She noticed some commotion as she passed the local bank, some young men arguing with each other. Little did she know that she should have taken note of these rowdy youngsters.

The unlucky trio of teenage criminals – Felix Stoica, 19, Piper Dumitru, 18, and Florin Geblescu, 18 – Were looking for “easy targets” that night, but underestimated Winny’s determination not to be taken advantage of.

It wasn’t long before the police caught the offenders. With a significant wound showing on his head, the man who first pushed Winny to the ground was tracked down, loitering up the road. With no plan of escape, his partners were skulking close by. Once rounded up, they were soon served the justice they deserved.

Looking back, Winifred remains shaken by the incident. Had she been less fit, the attack may have ended up much worse. After their arrest, the young men quickly confessed to their horrid attack. The case was quickly brought to court, where each was sentenced to time in prison. Speaking about the nature of their crime, the judge derided their shameless actions, accusing them of “casting a shadow” over Winny’s twilight years.

Rolling in toilet paper: Sheriff buys 24K extra rolls of TP

tpOfficials in an Alabama county have a financial mess to wipe up after the sheriff’s department mistakenly ordered 24,000 extra rolls of toilet paper.

WAFF-TV reports the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office mistakenly spent $22,000 on toilet paper and another $9,000 for 450 cases of trash bags. That’s a big problem, because its entire budget for janitorial supplies for next year is only $15,000.

County commissioners have negotiated a bill of more than $30,000 down by about half, but there’s another problem: Storing an extra two years’ worth of toilet paper.

While the Sheriff’s Department isn’t commenting, Commission Chairman James Hutcheson says workers realized the mistake when a notice came in from the vendor.

The newly elected sheriff, Phil Sims, says he will work with commissioners to address the problem.

pickAn Idaho man visited an Illinois library and broke a Guinness World Record for eating 241 corn kernels with a toothpick in three minutes.

David Rush, who previously set a record at the Oak Brook Public Library last year when he balanced a pool cue on his forehead for 1 hour, 3 minutes and 14 seconds, returned to the library to attempt the corn kernel record.

Rush’s third attempt successfully broke the record when he skewered and ate 241 corn kernels in three minutes, breaking the previous record of 236.

“It’s a ridiculous talent to have,” Rush told the Chicago Tribune. “I practiced skewering a lot to prepare along with the size of the plate, spreading out the corn and best toothpicks to use.”

Man Tries to Cure Constipation By Putting a Live, 20-Inch Eel Up His Anus

eelsA Chinese man had to undergo emergency surgery to remove a live eel from his intestines, and told doctors that he had put the eel up his anus in order to cure constipation.

According to an article published by The Sun, the man had been experiencing constipation and was told by his friends to try this “folk remedy” as a cure. Heads up, there is zero scientific evidence to back up that an eel will do anything for your digestive system except wreak total havoc, which this one did.

The article detailed how the 49-year-old man from the Baiyun District in Guangzhou, capital of South China’s Guangdong Province, came to the hospital experiencing abdominal pain, initially omitting the fact that there was an eel in his body.

He was immediately rushed into emergency surgery, and doctors were shocked to find a 20-inch Asian swamp eel among his intestines.

Doctors asked him after surgery how it got there. The article stated that he at first told doctors that it had “swam up by itself.” He later admitted to willingly putting the eel up his anus. Why though? Because the guy had been having some constipation issues and his friends told him about an old folk remedy that said an eel could clear up that blockage.

noseDr Emilio Gómez Milán and his team developed a lie detector test that used thermography to tell if people were lying, and found that whenever participants in their research were being untruthful, the temperature of the tip of their nose dropped up to 1.2 degrees Celsius, while the temperature of their forehead increased up to 1.5C.

Scientist also found that drop in temperature at nose level actually caused it to slightly shrink, although the difference is undetected by the human eye.

Man flips ex-wife’s car over with tractor, surrenders after standoff using crossbow

flips“At approximately 11:45 a.m., deputies were dispatched to a residence on West Monroe Road for a felonious domestic assault,” Mast states in a press release.

“Upon arrival there, the deputies found that the ex-husband of the woman who lives at that residence had come over and instigated an argument with her. After becoming very agitated, the ex-husband ended up threatening his ex-wife with a large knife.

After several threats, the male subject then threw the knife down; made more threats; and went outside to where he had a farm tractor parked. The male subject then used a front-end loader on the tractor to flip his ex-wife’s vehicle over onto its top. The male subject then fled the scene on that same tractor.

“Deputies then proceeded to what they believed was the ex-husband’s current residence on West Tyler Road in Hart Township. There, they located the tractor that was used to flip the vehicle over at the Monroe Road residence.

A short time later, they located the male suspect involved, who was now attempting to conceal himself in his residence.

When the deputies approached to interview him, the suspect armed himself with a cocked and armed crossbow which he aimed at the deputies. He then made several threats towards the deputies, including that he would not be taken alive. The deputies then backed off and treated him as a barricaded subject.

“The deputies kept communications going with the suspect for several hours,” Mast said. “During this time, a Michigan State Police negotiator came to the scene to assist as well. The trooper continued to speak with the subject until he eventually gave himself up at approximately 4:30 p.m.”

“We were sitting over here, having a bit of red wine appreciation night, trying to act as grown-ups,” Galvin recalled in a video interview this year with Lisa Wilkinson of “The Sunday Project,” a current affairs talk show that airs on Network 10 in Australia.
“And then the conversation came up, ‘Should I eat it?’ ” recalled Galvin. “And then off Sam went and bang, that’s how it happened.”
After downing the slug, Sam became weak and complained of severe pain in his legs, according to “The Sunday Project.” Sam’s mother, Katie Ballard, told the news show that at first they worried he might have multiple sclerosis, which had afflicted her husband. But doctors said no, that wasn’t the cause.
Then Sam turned to his mother and told her he had eaten a slug, “And I went, ‘No, no one gets sick from that,’ ” Katie Ballard said. CNN has also reached out to Ballard.
Soon, however, doctors told them otherwise. Sam had developed rat lungworm disease from the infected slug, changing his life forever.

deathThe words “Murder” and “Go vegan” have been spray-painted on the door at Greendale Farm Shop in Woodbury Salterton, Devon.

Greendale is providing a service where people can name their own turkey and “help look after it for the next two months”.

The Vegan Society said it “does not support” any threats or abuse.

Farmer Mat Carter, 35, said he wanted to “offer people the chance to see where their food came from”.

He said the backlash to the service started “almost immediately” after it was shared on Facebook and Instagram on Sunday.

Mr Carter said staff arrived at work on Tuesday to find the spray paint across the shop and on pheasants for sale outside. The vandalism has been reported to police.

He said they had also received “very strange” phone calls.

One person reportedly called and asked the butcher: “How would you like it if I cut you up and put you on the counter?”

Another caller is said to have shouted obscenities, before saying: “You should be the ones being killed because your life is worth less than that of the innocent animals which you are murdering”.
