ashmoreTexas – It was a little hard for Katy resident Kelli Ashmore to relax when a tour of the White House in Washington, D.C., suddenly turned into a private viewing for two.

“All of a sudden me and Garrett were by ourselves,” said Kelli, 32. “I said, ‘We’re going to get in trouble — we have to get out of here!”

But Garrett, 35, meant for them to be there, so he quickly began talking a blue streak right there in the roped-off Blue Room.

“I gave her a cheesy speech,” Garrett said. “I was nervous and shaking, and my eyes were watering. I asked her to marry me. I told her to look out at the Capitol building. ‘Today,’ I said, ‘that flag is flying in honor of you.’?”  More

garlandGarland, Texas – A former terror suspect has been named as one of the gunmen shot dead by police after two attackers blasted an unarmed security guard in the ankle during an anti-Islam art contest in Texas on Sunday night.

Two heavily-armed men, who are believed to have been carrying explosives, were killed by police after opening fire outside the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, near Dallas, at around 7pm during a controversial event where caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad were being displayed.

Followers of Islam deem that any physical depiction of the prophet – even a positive one – is blasphemous.

A senior FBI official has identified one of the men as Elton Simpson, who was previously the subject of a terror investigation, according to ABC News.  More

mollyAMARILLO – A nationally known competitive eater showed off her skills Sunday at the Big Texan, but not just to take on one steak challenge, Molly Schuyler hoped to eat three full 72-ounce steak meals within an hour.

Each meal consists of a 72-ounce steak, a baked potato, side salad, shrimp cocktail and a roll. During Sunday’s challenge, Schuyler inhaled all three of the meals.

That means 216-ounces of steak (around 13 pounds total) and all of the sides. Schuyler was able to take down the feast in less than a half hour!
“I come in thinking I’m going to fail, but you know if I win it’s a lovely parting gift and that’s cool. I also get free steak so I don’t really lose,” she said.  More

suggsVirginia – A couple have been spared prison for felony child neglect after admitting to locking their three young children in a room with urine and feces for 24 hours a day – and feeding them through a gate.

Scott Suggs, 28, and Brandy Kangas, 36, were arrested after police received an anonymous tip regarding the welfare of their children, a 17-month-old boy and two girls, aged three and four.

When police arrived at their home in Fredericksburg, Virginia, last December, they discovered the youngsters locked in a ‘sparsely furnished’ room, where they had seemingly ‘remained at all times’.

The room was stained with human urine and feces and had a homemade ‘gate’, which the children appeared to have been fed their meals through. Authorities immediately removed the youngsters.  More

dreamDILLONVALE, Ohio – A Dillonvale woman was charged with attempted murder and aggravated assault after authorities say she claimed she was dreaming about filleting a fish when she sliced her husband’s throat in his sleep.

She went before a Jefferson County judge for her arraignment. Bond was set at half a million dollars for Judy Jones, 44, in a shocking case of domestic violence.

France bans super-skinny models in anorexia clampdown

Category: Nutty News

franceFrance will ban excessively thin fashion models and expose modelling agents and the fashion houses that hire them to possible fines and even jail, under a new law passed on Friday.

The move by France, with its fashion and luxury industries worth tens of billions of euros, comes after a similar ban by Israel in 2013, while other countries, like Italy and Spain, rely on voluntary codes of conduct to protect models.

The measure is part of a campaign against anorexia by President François Hollande’s government.

Lawmakers also made it illegal to condone anorexia and said any retouched photo that alters the bodily appearance of a model for commercial purposes must carry a message stating it had been manipulated.  More

bumperChina – A stray dog miraculously escaped death, when it got stuck in the bumper of a car after the vehicle ran into it.

The incident took place in Fenghuang County in central China’s Hunan Province, and left both the dog and the driver pretty shaken up.

Talking about the incident, Mr Zhang, the driver of the vehicle, explained: ‘I was driving pretty quickly at the time so when I hit the dog, I thought it had either died or run away, so I didn’t get out of the car to check.’

However later (as in, a couple of hundred miles down the road later) Mr Zhang heard barking from under the car, and when he went to investigate he found the dog stuck in his front bumper.

So, what did Mr Zhang do next? Release the dog from the bumper? No, don’t be silly.  More

Polio Virus Used To Cure Brain Cancer

Posted By Staff

Date: April 2nd, 2015

Category: Nutty News

polioBrain cancer, also known as glioblastoma, are the last two words any patient wants to hear from their doctor. Patients who have received this diagnosis have likened it to a death sentence.

Oddly enough, what was also considered a death sentence 50 years ago could end up giving brain cancer patients a fighting shot. Researchers from the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke University have re-engineered the polio virus to cure brain tumors by removing a key genetic sequence.

Polio is an infectious disease caused by a virus that often results in irreversible paralysis and death.

Following a global effort to eradicate the disease, the number of polio cases around the world has decreased from an estimated 350,000 cases in 1988 to 416 reported cases in 2013.  Continued at Strange Facts

According to Russell, Guerrero met the victim at church.

“He began having her write checks, made out to cash, and he would endorse them and take the money for his own personal use.”  More

goodValparaiso, Indiana – An Indiana woman says she didn’t immediately pull over on a rural road for a police officer because she feared for her safety as a “single female.”

DelRea Good, 52, says she delayed being pulled over by a police officer flashing his lights in a marked cruiser because she was concerned for her safety at 11:21 p.m. on March 20 on a dark country road, the Times of Northwest Indiana reports.

Good said she reduced speed, put on her emergency flashers and waved her arm out of the window to acknowledge the pursuing police cruiser.

But her nearly one-mile continuation to a lighted Kohl’s parking lot led to her being handcuffed on a felony charge of resisting arrest. If convicted of the felony charge, Good may lose her job as a nurse.  More

internetJapan – An increasing number of low income Japanese men and women are permanently living in tiny dark cubicles at internet cafes where they play video games in their spare time while saving on rent.

Known as ‘internet cafe refugees’, they spend every night washing, sleeping and eating at the gaming centers in between what is usually low-paid and menial employment, the People’s Daily Online reported.

The trend started in the 1990s with some young men spending a growing amount of their time playing video games, and then graduating into low paid mindless jobs which occupied the space in between going back to the cafe. 

Eventually they moved permanently into the 24-hour cafes, which have cubicles where the computer user can fall asleep as well as bathrooms where they can freshen up before heading off to work.  More

cheatingATLANTA – A group of former Atlanta educators convicted in a test cheating scandal were locked up in jail Thursday as they await sentences that could send them to prison for years.

In one of the nation’s largest cheating scandals of its kind, the 11 defendants were convicted Wednesday of racketeering for their roles in a scheme to inflate students’ scores on standardized exams.

The racketeering charges carry up to 20 years in prison. The convicted former educators are set to be sentenced later this month.  More

jacobsonCALEDONIA, Wisconsin – Police in Wisconsin said they arrested a woman accused of urinating and defecating in a box at Kmart while wearing a T-shirt that said “dropping a load.”

Investigators said Melissa Jacobson (picture), 49, of Racine, was recorded on security camera footage Monday going behind a cash register at the store, loosening her pants and squatting down to allegedly urinate and defecate in a box of security tags.

Police said Jacobson wiped herself with a paper towel before returning to the customer service counter, where she was making a return.

The arrest report quoted an employee as saying Jacobson was a regular at the store “so she should know where the public restrooms are located.”  More
