appleTRENTON — A New Jersey man cannot collect damages for burns he suffered while bowing his head in prayer over a sizzling steak fajita skillet at Applebee’s, a state appeals panel ruled today.

In March 2010, Hiram Jimenez visited the restaurant in Burlington County with his brother, Rafael, and ordered a steak fajita, which was brought to him in a sizzling skillet, according to court records.

The waitress allegedly did not warn him the dish was hot.

After receiving the food, Jimenez and his brother decided to pray, and Jimenez bowed his head close to the table. As he was praying, he claimed he heard a loud sizzling noise followed by a grease pop, and felt a burning sensation in his left eye and on his face.

Jimenez said he panicked and knocked the plate of food on his lap, causing more burns.  More

whiteFLEMINGTON, New Jersey – A sign in a store window is stirring up racial tension in Flemington, New Jersey.

As WCBS 880’s Alex Silverman reported, the sign in the window of Jimbo’s Deli on Main Street says “Celebrate your white heritage in March. White History Month.”

“The ‘white’ had a cross. It was a cross ‘t,’ which is used by the Klu Klux Klan as a symbol, right,” said Bhakti Curtis. Curtis, a bi-racial neighbor, said he couldn’t believe what he was seeing.

He confronted the owner, Jim Boggess. “He didn’t have a clue why I was offended and then why other people would be upset about it neither,” he said.

Curtis asked police to look into it but they decided nothing could or should be done.  More

Sorry Kids: Circus eliminating elephant acts from performances

Posted By Staff

Date: March 5th, 2015

Category: Nutty News

circusThe Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus will phase out the show’s iconic elephants from its performances by 2018, telling The Associated Press exclusively that growing public concern about how the animals are treated led to the decision.

“A lot of people aren’t comfortable with us touring with our elephants.”

Another reason for the decision, company President Kenneth Feld said, was that certain cities and counties have passed “anti-circus” and “anti-elephant” ordinances.

The company’s three shows visit 115 cities throughout the year, and Feld said it’s expensive to fight legislation in each jurisdiction.

It’s also difficult to plan tours amid constantly changing regulations, he said.  More

The driver, a 31-year-old off duty soldier, was drunk and had got lost around 5am.

He had followed a tram into a tunnel, somehow managing to ignore warning signs – and also the fact the road gave way to a train track.

U-Bahn trains in Dortmund run as trams for stretches on city streets above ground, before returning underground.  More

perezChicago – A man threatened his mother with a machete and later held her hostage in a west suburban police station parking lot because she refused to buy him $4,000 worth of basketball cards and a costume mask on eBay, according to police.

“This is one of the most bizarre domestic situations I have ever seen in my 30 years at the Riverside Police Department,” Chief Thomas Weitzel said.

The machete-wielding son went so far as to slice up bedroom sheets in front of this mother to make the point that he would harm her, he added.

He wanted to buy basketball cards and a costume mask from a popular movie that was being bid at $4,000, police said.

She refused because she didn’t have the money.  More

Prosecutors Mull Charges of Felony Armed Robbery In Mike Brown Family Attack

Category: Nutty News

i amMissouri – Prosecutors are now considering criminal charges against members of Michael Brown’s family in connection with a violent confrontation over the sale of merchandise commemorating the late teenager, who was shot to death last year by a police officer.

The St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney recently received the results of a months-long investigation by Ferguson Police Department detectives who probed the October 18 beating and robbery of t-shirt vendors, one of whom was hospitalized following the assault.

The decision on whether to pursue charges in connection with the ransacking of the “Justice for Mike Brown” merchandise operation is particularly sensitive since Lesley McSpadden, Brown’s mother, is named in a police report as one of the “attackers” who participated in the assault, which cops classified as a felony armed robbery.  More

Boy eats up to 20 pieces of licorice a day for four months – has seizures

Posted By Staff

Date: March 4th, 2015

Category: Nutty News

licItaly – After a 10-year-old boy in Bologna, Italy, suffered four seizures, doctors eventually determined they were the result of eating up to 20 pieces of licorice a day for four months. In addition, he had a headache and high blood pressure, according to the case study published in the journal Pediatric Neurology.

The cause of these symptoms, determined after other possibilities were ruled out, was the active ingredient in the candy: glycyrrhizic acid.

Doctors found out the boy was eating so much licorice on a daily basis because when they saw him a week after the initial incident, his teeth were black.

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the effects of glycyrrhizic acid in licorice is not a concern at the level that most people consume them, but it added that it could become a problem in the “few individuals who may indulge themselves with excessive intakes of licorice-containing candies and/or beverages.”  More

mountNepal - Human waste left by climbers on Mount Everest has become a problem that is causing pollution and threatening to spread disease on the world’s highest peak, the chief of Nepal’s mountaineering association said Tuesday.

The more than 700 climbers and guides who spend nearly two months on Everest’s slopes each climbing season leave large amounts of feces and urine, and the issue has not been addressed, Ang Tshering told reporters.

He said Nepal’s government needs to get the climbers to dispose of the waste properly so the mountain remains pristine.

Hundreds of foreign climbers attempt to scale Everest during Nepal’s mountaineering season, which began this week and runs through May. Last year’s season was canceled after 16 local guides were killed in an avalanche in April.  More

skiMichigan – A ski resort has issued the University of Michigan with a bill for half a million dollars after six fraternities and sororities staged a huge party that tore apart the hotel in an Animal House-style melee.

Originally, it was estimated the college students caused around $75,000 damage at Treetops Resort during a ski trip in January. 

But a full assessment of the 45 rooms and connecting hallway – which was stripped of its ceiling – plus the loss of revenue, and damage to the brand’s reputation has seen that figure multiply by six.

And according to Barry Owens, general manager of Treetops in Gaylord, the fraternity that originally apologized for the damage – Sigma Alpha Mu – is refusing to pay up.  More

Sophomore Kaitlin Taylor says she went to the campus health center in September 2013 complaining of flu-like symptoms — fever, phlegm, chest congestion, coughing. That spiraled into a bizarre weeklong nightmare.

While waiting for care, Taylor chatted with a counselor, saying she wanted to change her arts major and take a leave of absence that semester, but missed a deadline because her computer was stolen.

Finally, told that no one could write her a prescription, she was driven to nearby St. Joseph’s Hospital, and dumped on the sidewalk in front of the emergency room.  More

Alexandra Carter, 25, received a letter from the Passport Office telling her application for a new passport had been rejected because she didn’t have a “neutral expression”.

Excited about her first holiday abroad in 10 years, Ms Carter had sent off her application for her first adult passport in plenty of time for her week-long October trip to Santa Ponsa, Majorca with childhood friend.
