toiletA Tennessee collegian poured liquid from the toilet into her dorm roommate’s water bottles, according to police who arrested the student on a felony tampering charge.

As detailed in a court filing, victim Erein Tiller this month told investigators that she recently “observed a decline in her health status consisting of weight loss, appetite suppression, and diarrhea and did not know the reasoning why.”

Tiller eventually learned via Snapchat that her roommate, Tierni Williams (picture), 20, “had been tampering with her water bottles which caused her sickness.” Both women …  More

faceThe 22-year-old man who waited a decade to have the dangerously large tumor on his face removed survived the life-altering surgery he raised the funds for.

Lucas McCulley, from Idaho, had his congenital lymphangioma removed in an operation in New York on Tuesday, and his mother has revealed to KTVB that he is doing well.

McCulley raised more than $112,000 to get the surgery he needed to remove the benign tumor on his face that was causing immense pain via GoFundMe.

But he was not sure whether or not his tumor was operable until he was featured on an episode of the syndicated TV show The Doctors last month, during which McCulley was given…  More

fecesA man accused of murdering a New Orleans police officer stopped jury selection for his trial on Wednesday by rubbing human feces on himself.

Travis Boys, 35, has pleaded not guilty and not guilty by reason of insanity to murdering Officer Daryle Holloway while escaping from custody in June 2015.

Jury selection was occurring at around 4pm when Boys removed a napkin from his suit pocket and opened it to reveal feces that he began to rub on his face, head and mouth, NOLA.com reported.

Boys said nothing while covering himself in the excrement; it’s unclear exactly where the feces came from, but it was likely saved by Boys during a bathroom break.

When she saw what was happening, Criminal District Judge Karen Herman stopped proceedings and dismissed the jury that had seen the incident.

Herman has now ordered another…  More

While there are countless techniques touted to induce the state, scientists have largely found low success rates among those who put them to the test.

But, a new study has now identified three tricks that can increase your chances of having lucid dreams.

By combining the techniques, the study found participants were more likely to have success in controlling their dreams – and, doing so…   More

russiaIf you’re a diehard vegetarian who can’t bear the smell of cooked meat, or even the thought of living near someone who likes to consume meat, you’ll soon be able to move into a vegetarian-only apartment complex in Russia.

Veda Village, an ongoing construction project in the suburbs of St. Petersburg, Russia, was designed for vegetarians looking to practice a healthy and ethical lifestyle in a community of like-minded people.

The first and most important requirement to buy or rent an apartment here is to be a vegetarian.

Clients will undergo interviews with sales agents, and if they fail to convince them that they are true vegetarians, their application will get denied. But a meat-free diet…  More

Beetles Attracted To Burned Trees Adding Onto Fire Aftermath Problems

Posted By Staff

Date: October 18th, 2017

Category: Nutty News

bugsDAVIS – As fires race through parts of Northern California, there’s a race of a different kind underway involving insects naturally drawn to the smoke and flames.

Certain beetles actually have thermal receptors that can sense fires milesaway.

“When there’s a fire, boom, there they are,” said scientist Steve Haydon. “They just show up.”

Haydon, the senior museum scientist at the UC Davis Bohart Museum of Entomology, says fires are a rare opportunity to study the insects.

“Between fires, they are very difficult or even impossible to find,” Haydon said.

But there are some difficulties.  More

Pumpkin Carving 101

Posted By Staff

Date: October 18th, 2017

Category: Nutty News

pumpkinNEW YORK – On The Dig, Elle McLogan struggled to perfect her spooky jack-o’-lantern. Hoping for a smoother time carving your pumpkin? Here are some pro tips:

1. Pick the greenest, thickest stem.

Fresher pumpkins have greener stems. Avoid the dry and brittle. A bigger stem means a thicker pumpkin wall, which is best for carving.

2. Draw a blueprint.

Use a pen to outline your pumpkin design, then follow along with your knife for the most polished result.

3. Use a kit.

A kids’ pumpkin-carving kit is a great tool. If you don’t have one on hand, use regular knifes (be careful!) and a wide salad-serving spoon or an ice-cream scoop to remove the pulp inside.

4. Cut a hole in back, not on top.

To ensure a long, healthy life for your jack-o’-lantern, avoid removing the stem, which supplies the pumpkin with moisture and nutrients. Instead, cut a hole in the back of the pumpkin to remove the pulp and seeds.  More

The mind still works after the body shows no sign of life and reveal people have heard their own death announced by medics

Posted By Staff

flatSome report having seen light at the end of a tunnel, while others claim to have floated above their body, watching as medics save their lives.

But the reality of near-death experiences has always been debated.

Now scientists have discovered that a person’s consciousness continues to work after the body has stopped showing signs of life – meaning they have awareness of their own death.

And there is evidence to suggest someone who has died may even hear their own death being announced by medics.

The findings echo the plot line of the new Hollywood re-make of 90s cult horror Flatliners, starring Ellen Page.

In the film a group of young doctors embark on a dangerous experiment by taking turns to chemically induce their heart to stop and flatline to find out exactly what happens in the afterlife.

A team from New York University Langone School of Medicine investigated the very same question through twin studies in Europe and the US of people who have suffered cardiac arrest and ‘come back’ to life, in the largest study of its kind.

Study author Dr Sam Parnia told Live Science: ‘They’ll describe watching doctors and nurses working and they’ll describe having awareness of full conversations, of visual things that were going on, that would otherwise not be known to them.’  More

headA father found himself stumped after his young son got his head stuck between two metal bars while playing on a construction site in Brazil.

Arthur Gardine, two, got his head stuck between the poles and his father Rodrigo could not figure out how to free him.

Mr Gardine and several other family members from Serra, Espirito Santo, in southeastern Brazil, spent hours trying to prize the bars apart before finally figuring it out.

The incident was filmed by the child’s grandmother, Celia, who watched helplessly as Rodrigo, his uncle and then the boy’s grandfather struggled to find a way to free the trapped toddler, using numerous techniques to force the bars apart.

As the baffled adults worked tirelessly to push the infant’s head back through the bars, the tot became more and more distressed.  More

Man helped plan friend’s suicide, buying her a rope, tying the noose

Posted By Staff

Date: October 18th, 2017

Category: Nutty News

ropeAn 18-year-old Utah man was ordered this week to stand trial for allegedly helping his friend hang herself and recording the suicide on video.

On Tuesday, 4th District Judge James Brady ruled that there was sufficient probable cause to charge Tyerell Pryzybycien with first-degree murder and desecration of a human body in the death of 16-year-old Jchandra Brown.

The judge wrote that had it not been for the defendant’s actions, which included supplying his suicidal friend with a rope, driving her out to a remote location and tying the noose for her to hang herself, Brown would not have lost her life on May 6, 2017.

During a preliminary hearing last week, prosecutor Chad Grundander argued that the defendant ‘had a fascination with death’ and used Brown’s ‘suicidal ideations for his own purposes.’

Defense attorneys countered by insisting that Brown was responsible for taking her own life and that their client’s actions did not meet the requirements for a murder charge.

They also contended that Pryzybycien asked Brown several times if she truly wanted to go through with the suicide, and they pointed to notes where she said she made the decision herself.

Przybycien’s role wasn’t commendable, but it didn’t amount to murder either, his lawyer Gregory Stewart said.  More
