cigarWhen you pull in a half-million dollars a speech, why not celebrate with the “Rolls Royce” of cigars?

Former President Bill Clinton reportedly indulges in some of the world’s most expensive cigars, from a Dominican Republic company whose smokes fetch up to $1,000 — that’s per cigar, not per box.

“We hunt for the most exotic tobaccos around the world,” Hansotia said, rationalizing the nearly $1,000 price tag. The company produces about 20,000 boxes per year, and has a three-year waiting list.  More

Meet the newly-wed husband and wife who look like identical twins

Posted By Staff

Date: August 20th, 2014

brides russiaRussia – They appear to be two young women who are tying the knot in a same-sex marriage – but when you delve deeper, the reality is considerably more complicated.

This is because the brides, who appear near identical in their wedding photos, are actually a heterosexual couple living in Russia, where gay and lesbian unions are forbidden and frowned upon in public.

On the right is Dmitry Kozhukhov, who prefers to be called Alina Davis. The 23-year-old, born male, labels herself as ‘androgyne’, which means she doesn’t fit neatly into one gender identity.

That said, Alina feels more comfortable as a woman – and remains strongly attracted to other females.  More

pets datingLOS ANGELES – On these dating sites, a passion for pets will help you find more than just puppy love.

Sites like PetsDating.com and YouMustLoveDogsDating.com have found a new niche as singles flock to computers and smartphones to find relationships, connecting dog owners to potential mates who enjoy long walks in the dog park and slobbery canine kisses as much as they do.

Many of the sites encourage users to bring their dogs on first dates to break the ice or size up canine chemistry.

Many dating sites cater to religious, cultural and political preferences, but won’t focus as heavily on interests like pets, music or travel, said Karen North, a professor of social media at the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School of Journalism.  More

Student punished for saying “bless you”

blessTennessee – Kendra Turner was brought up right. She’s the kind of kid who says “yes sir” and “no ma’am.”  She was “raised up right,” with good manners as they are prone to say around Dyersburg, Tennessee.

So it was not out of character for Kendra to say “bless you” after a fellow classmate sneezed. But that common courtesy landed the 18-year-old in hot water.

Kendra said she was rebuked by her teacher at Dyer County High School and thrown out of class for violating the teacher’s ban on the words “bless you.”

“I stood up and said, ‘My pastor said I have a constitutional right – 1st amendment freedom of speech,’” Kendra wrote on Facebook. “She said, ‘Not in my class you don’t.”  More

‘Doctor’ Hired by Mike Brown’s Family to Help Perform Autopsy is a Fraud

Posted By Staff

Date: August 20th, 2014

Shawn ParcellsOne of the medical examiners hired by the Brown family’s attorney to perform an independent autopsy on the slain teen is apparently not who he claims to be.

According to Fox4, the prefix of “Dr.” in front of Shawn Parcells’ name is actually a pseudonym, and he doesn’t hold a medical degree of any type. Parcells is actually the owner of a for-hire autopsy company that operates out of Kansas City named National Forensic Autopsy and Recovery Services, and he says that the lawyers for Brown’s family contacted him because of his “expertise” in gunshot wounds.

“I am a forensic pathologist assistant and medical investigator,” he told the news affiliate.

But according to Dr. Erik Mitchell, Parcells’ claims are fishy and misleading. “That is a degree that does not exist in my knowledge, except in the mind of Shawn Parcells,” Dr. Mitchell said.  More   Video: CNN FAKE NEWS: Live From Ferguson!!

That’s how it is at the Albuquerque’s BioPark Zoo, but it’s not the zoo animals that are stinking up the joint. It’s the human visitors.

Park employees have recently been finding puddles of urine near the polar bear exhibit, and suspect that it’s the results of kids who couldn’t quite make it to the bathroom, according to KOAT TV.

“It’s kind of gross, but as I say, I think it’s something that’ll happen in most heavily visited places,” zoo curator Bill Aragon told the station.  More

A Witness Conversation Unknowingly Captured at the Scene of the Ferguson Shooting is a Game-Changer

Posted By Staff

Date: August 17th, 2014

streetA previously unnoticed detail in a background conversion of a video taken minutes after the Ferguson shooting could change the course of the investigation into Mike Brown’s death.

The original video poster appears sympathetic to the narrative that Mike Brown was shot unarmed with his hands in the air. But he unknowingly picks up conversation between a man who saw the altercation and another neighbor. (Brown was running toward police officer when shot).

This corroborates an account of the event given by a friend of Officer Darren Wilson:

Well, then Michael takes off and gets to be about 35 feet away. And, Darren’s first protocol is to pursue. So, he stands up and yells, “Freeze!” Michael and his friend turn around. And Michael taunts him… And then all the sudden he just started bumrushing him. He just started coming at him full speed. And, so he just started shooting. And, he just kept coming. And, so he really thinks he was on something.”  More  BREAKING: New Video Proves Michel Brown Attacked Officer Darren Wilson (Crude Language)
