Cornell dean says ISIS welcome on campus in undercover video

deanThis guy is either the dumbest Ivy League bigwig ever or politically correct to a fault — for welcoming offers to bring ISIS and Hamas to Cornell University.

A video sting operation shows Cornell’s assistant dean for students, Joseph Scaffido, agreeing to everything suggested by an undercover muckraker posing as a Moroccan student.

Scaffido casually endorses inviting an ISIS “freedom fighter’’ to conduct a “training camp” for students at the upstate Ithaca campus — bizarrely likening the activity to a sports camp.

Is it OK to bring a humanitarian pro-“Islamic State Iraq and Syria” group on campus, the undercover for conservative activist James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas asks.  More

wellMINERAL WELLS, Texas – Relatives of a Texas 9-year-old who plunged into a well while playing in a vacant home’s yard are praising their “hero” neighbors for executing a swift rescue.

Shawnee Coomer said her nephew, Jaxson Tune, 9, was playing with some other kids in the yard of a vacant home when he fell through the tin and old wooden boards covering an old well.

Witnesses said the boy was doing pull-ups on the bar over the well before he fell through.

“All he remembers is picking flowers and then waking up in the hospital,” Coomer told KXAS-TV. “He doesn’t remember the accident, he doesn’t remember falling through.”  More

Woman held in psychiatric ward after claiming Obama follows her on TWITTER

Posted By Staff

twitterNew York – A Long Island woman’s insistence that President Obama follows her on Twitter made doctors at the Harlem Hospital psych ward think she was delusional and suffering from bipolar disorder — but she was actually telling the truth, a lawsuit charges.

Kam Brock’s frightening eight-day “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” ordeal at the mental facility included forced injections of powerful sedatives and demands she down doses of lithium, medical records obtained through her suit filed in Manhattan Federal Court show.

They also indicate that doctors didn’t believe the leader of the free world followed her on Twitter — though @BarackObama follows over 640,000 accounts, including hers. They were also skeptical she worked at a bank, records show.

“I told (the doctor) Obama follows me on Twitter to show her the type of person I am. I’m a good person, a positive person. Obama follows positive people!” Brock, whose Twitter handle is @AkilahBrock, said.  More

teacherCHINO – Students at Chino High School returned to school this week to find that their chemistry teacher looked very different and had a new name: Amanda Swager.

“It’s just relaxing to be able to wake up in the morning and just be me,” Swager told KCAL9’s Crystal Cruz.

As Cruz reports, Swager grew up as a boy, Michael, but always knew there was something feminine about her. As an adult, she learned that she was actually genetically female and began transitioning.

Two years ago, Swager, 32, notified district leaders and planned on returning to school a woman after this summer.  More

Frontier Airlines Leaves Passengers Stranded For 18 Hours On A 2 Hour Flight

Posted By Staff

Category: Nutty News

frontierDENVER – What was supposed to be a 2-hour flight became an 18-hour travel ordeal for Frontier Airlines passengers flying from St. Louis to Denver.

Frontier Flight 287 was scheduled to arrive in Denver before 7 a.m. on Sunday but landed at 2:30 a.m. on Monday.

“You thought hidden cameras were up and someone was pulling something over your eyes,” said passenger Rich Straub.

He described how Frontier announced one delay after another until 12 hours later when the plane was ready. By then there was nobody to fly it and a new crew had to be flown in.

Nearly 70 people, including elderly passengers and families with children, were forced to wait by the gate and sleep on the floor or in chairs. They were never offered compensation — apparently because of a broken printer.  More

Government pays to house poor in luxury apartments – Get a job and be kicked out

Posted By Staff

Date: March 23rd, 2015

Category: Nutty News

luxuryVirginia – Verde Point is a self-described “luxury apartment” complex with a rooftop pool and “personal wine storage” that is currently accepting public housing assistance recipients who will live there practically for free, courtesy of the taxpayers — at least until they become gainfully employed and their incomes rise.

That’s when the pool parties and wine tastings end and they will have to downgrade to a more middle-class abode.

The Gramercy is another luxury apartment, also in Arlington, Va., where holders of the federal vouchers formerly known as Section 8 can live, taking advantage of its “massage room and sauna” and “clubroom with bar.” Also included, according to its promotional materials, are a “first-class sports club,” “theater/screening room,” and computer room.

As with those at Verde Point, federally-subsidized Gramercy residents can face the unpleasant choice between living in luxury on public assistance or getting a job and having to move to a neighborhood with far fewer amenities.  More

Son Kills And Eats Parents Who Told Him To Get A JobA Hong Kong man has been jailed for life for killing, dismembering, salting and cooking his parents.

The conviction of 31-year-old Henry Chau marks the end of a bizarre case that began in 2013 when the heads of his elderly mother and father were found stuffed into two refrigerators.

Members of the jury in the trial at the city’s high court heard how Chau dismembered his elderly parents before salting and cooking their body parts “like barbecued pork” and packing the flesh into lunchboxes with rice.

Police found other remains in a rubbish bin.

Passing sentence, Judge Michael Stuart-Moore described Chau as “narcissistic” and “preoccupied with fantasies for success”.

He said: “In practice, you have no feelings for other people.”    More

Cat in The Godfather Movie

Posted By Staff

Date: March 23rd, 2015

Category: Nutty News

godfather catIn the movie The Godfather, Don Vito Corleone, played by Marlon Brando, is the founder and mob boss of the Corleone Family. In the film’s opening scene, Don Vito Corleone is seen holding a cat on his lap while he sits in his office during his daughter’s wedding ceremony.

Francis Ford Coppola, the film’s writer and director, found the stray cat while walking through the lot at Paramount studios. Originally, the cat was not in the script at all, but right before the scene was filmed, Coppola gave the cat to Brando to see how it would play out.

Evidently, the scene was left with the cat, which ended up creating one of the more memorable images from the Godfather films. The cat did create a problem, though, because its purring muffled some of Brando’s lines, which meant they had to be looped over.

The placement of the cat is often seen as representing the hidden claws beneath The Don’s warm facade.  Video    More Nutty Facts

Cardinal Crescenzio Sepe could be heard through the microphone urging restraint and making lighthearted commentary in a Neapolitan accent.

“Sisters . . . Later. . . . well would you look at that. And these are the cloistered ones. Just imagine the non-cloistered ones,” he said, provoking laughter among the crowd gathered in the cathedral.  More

kingHorror writer Stephen King is proving to be as tenacious as some of his more sinister characters in seeking an apology from Maine Gov. Paul LePage.

LePage used his radio address last week to make his case for eliminating Maine’s income tax. He said states without an income tax, such as Florida, have lured away Maine residents, including King.

King quickly called out LePage, saying he winters in Florida but his permanent residence is in Bangor, Maine, where he says he pays a boatload of taxes.

LePage has yet to yield to King’s demands for an apology, and the author tweeted Sunday morning that “some guys are a lot better at dishing it out than taking it back.”  More

3rdFirst class on the Titanic was truly unbelievable, second class was like our first class and third class – well third class was really third class.

Third-class accommodation on the ship was relatively good, and similar to second-class accommodation on other steamships on the age. Nevertheless it was still spartan in comparison to modern cruise liners.

Third-class passengers shared common bathrooms, ate in dining facilities with other third-class passengers, and slept in cabins four to a room.

Bunk beds in third class had mattresses, pillows, and blankets, but no sheets or pillowcases.

Passengers could clean up in their cabins in a washbasin. However, only two bathtubs served all 700-plus third-class men and women.  More Nutty Facts

Angela Jones from Portsmouth underwent a gastric bypass in 2010 at Spires Southampton Hospital after ballooning to 364 pounds.

But within days of the operation the 42-year-old showed signs of complications, struggling to keep food down despite being given anti-nausea pills. 

Over the following years she was rushed in and out of hospital, with doctors forced to insert feeding tubes to keep her alive.

Russian KGB Handles Hostage Situation in 1986

Posted By Staff

Date: March 22nd, 2015

Category: Nutty News

russiaThe crisis began on Sept. 30, 1986, when four attaches from the Soviet Embassy were kidnapped in Beirut by Muslim extremists. Western news agencies received individual photos of the four men that same night, each with an automatic pistol pressed against his head.

The photos were accompanied by a note from a hitherto unknown group calling itself the Islamic Liberation Organization. The message warned that the four Soviet captives would be executed, one by one, unless Moscow pressured pro- Syrian militiamen to cease shelling positions held by the pro-Iranian fundamentalist militia in Lebanon’s northern port city of Tripoli.

Only two days after the kidnappings, the body of one of the four kidnapped men, a 30-year-old consular secretary named Arkady Katov, was found, shot through the head, on a Beirut trash dump.

Apparently, that’s when the Soviets dropped the idea of sweet talk and turned the matter over to the KGB.  Continued at Nutty Facts

All thought they were in a romantic relationship with a Mormon man, but they were actually being “catfished” by a woman in Texas.

The term refers to a person who deceives others via phone calls and social media into believing they are in a relationship.

Some of the women said they had been corresponding with “Hyrum Young” for years. He was kind, attentive, and always available to talk or text, they said. But their online beau would never agree to meet in person, they told CNN.

The women, through casual conversations about their online boyfriends, began to realize they were all communicating with the same person.   More

chair liftCARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine – Seven people were hurt when an out-of-control chair lift at a Maine ski resort stopped and then headed down the mountain backward, prompting riders to jump off, officials and witnesses said Saturday.

“It was really scary,” said David Segre, 42, of Falmouth, who was standing in the crowded lift line. “It was like a gear had let loose and it was slowly picking up speed going the wrong way.”

“So all the chairs … they were slipping backward. And as gravity works they started to go faster and faster and people were jumping off at the lower levels,” he said.

Segre estimated that the lift went the wrong way for about a minute, traveling about 200 or 300 yards, before it stopped. One man who wasn’t able to jump off ended up going around the loading area and heading up the mountain on the other side, he said.  More

The girl had allegedly poured bleach into her mother’s water carafe, the sheriff’s office said.  More

When A Boy Was Short On Cash, His Mother’s Response SHOCKED The Cashier

100Katy, Texas – When it was nearing the end of Travis Sattler’s shift at a restaurant called Freddy’s, he never could have expected how the events would play out when a young boy approached the counter to order dessert.

The youngster attempted to order and pay for a mini-mint Oreo custard, visibly struggling with his money and trying to determine if he had enough to pay for his treat.

“He was a little nervous,” explained Sattler, according to KHOU. “Ends up handing me everything he had. He was maybe two dollars short.” Without hesitation, Sattler pulled out his credit card and generously told the boy, “It’s on me.”

“He had the biggest eyes, the widest smile,” Sattler said, but what happened next is where this story really begins. A half hour passes by and Sattler is just about to complete his shift, when the same young boy walked over and handed him a note.

It read: “Thank you for being so nice and paying for my custard, we need more people like you.” Satter explained that he smiled to himself and then realized that there was a $100 bill wrapped inside.  More

Grandmother guilty of capital murder for running to death her 9-year-old granddaughter

Joyce Hardin GarrardGADSDEN, Alabama – An Alabama jury convicted Joyce Hardin Garrard of capital murder in the running death of her 9-year-old granddaughter on Friday, rejecting claims that she didn’t mean to harm the girl while she was punishing the child for a lie.

Authorities claimed the 49-year-old woman forced Savannah to run and carry wood for hours as punishment for a lie about candy. Savannah eventually had a seizure and died three days later in a hospital.

Relatives sitting behind her began to cry loudly. Defense attorney Dani Bone laid his head on the table in front of him after the verdict, delivered after about 3½ hours of deliberation. Garrard’s husband Johnny sat behind her, hugging a crying daughter before the woman ran from the courtroom sobbing.

The judge said the sentencing phase — a mini-trial within the trial — will begin Monday. Jurors will hear additional testimony and make a decision on whether to recommend life without parole or death, but the final decision is up to the judge under Alabama law.  More

catsFlorida – Do your friends, lovers and family members mock you for your compulsion to check your home’s every nook and cranny (including cupboards and the oven because come on, what if it’s a really tiny burglar?!) for intruders before you go to bed?

A 61-year-old woman was simply looking for her cats when she reached under the bed at her Palm Springs, Florida home, the Sun Sentinel reports.

Instead of her lovable furballs or a couple of jingly toys, the woman — whose name has not been released — “touched human skin,” a police report obtained by the Sentinel said.

The man under the bed, who police later identified as 25-year-old Christian Vatovec (picture), fled the scene. He is accused of taking a gold anklet and a digital camera, and is facing charges of burglary, grand theft and resisting arrest.  More
