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

Posted By Staff

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

reidDallas – All she wanted was “a big booty.”

The family of a Texas nurse who died from an alleged botched illegal butt implant injection says she was obsessed with having a gigantic behind.

Wykesha Reid, 34, was found dead on a massage table at the Deep Ellum salon in Dallas on Feb. 19, reports the Dallas Morning News.

Cops say they believe she suffered a “medical emergency” while undergoing the black-market cosmetic procedure.

Her stepmom Patricia Kelley revealed it was the fourth time she’d been to the parlor for the same treatment. The 70-year-old said she had warned her stepdaughter, whom she’d raised since she was a baby, that her backside was getting too big.  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

The nuns had to be reined in by the Archbishop of Naples after swarming the pontiff, to his evident bemusement, and showering him with gifts and greetings.

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

Stephen King not backing down on demand for Gov. LePage apology

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

gastricPortsmouth - An obese mother starved to death after being left unable to keep food down by gastric weight-loss surgery. 

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

The mother of two had been suffering arthritis and struggled to exercise for much of her life.

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.

Weighing 280 pounds less than when she underwent the surgery, the mother of two died. More

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

Riders jump after chairlift reverses and speeds backwards at ski resort

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

Years later, the pilot on the flight, Bill Paynter, “was asked if he thought Reagan believed in UFOs and he replied, ‘How could he not believe after what we saw that night?’”  More Strange Facts

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

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

Category: Nutty News

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

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

davidNew York – Illusionist David Copperfield’s Manhattan rooftop swimming pool did a disappearing act — but it wasn’t a trick. The pool atop Copperfield’s East 57th Street penthouse spontaneously burst and flooded his apartment, seeping into others as far as 30 stories below.

Copperfield’s lawyer, Ted Blumberg, confirmed that a pump for the 57th-floor lap pool malfunctioned, sending water gushing through Copperfield’s four-story, greenhouse-like penthouse at the Galleria that is packed with valuable art and antiques, including vintage arcade pieces from Coney Island.

The water leaked to apartments down to the 20th floor, knocking out the tony tower’s elevators for more than a day following the flood.

Copperfield was in Las Vegas at the time, where he performs a nightly MGM Grand show.  More

dog walkerPHILADELPHIA - Brandon Smith is under arrest, charged in the murder of 51-year-old James Stuhlman. Tyfine Hamilton, 15, turned himself into police Friday morning.

The boys were playing basketball when they decided to rob someone. They passed on one person walking a dog in favor of Stuhlman, their chosen victim, apparently because he looked older.

“He was a lot older than the first potential victim and as they stated, his dog looked “weak” or “soft,” Clark said.

Clark said Stuhlman was confronted by the teens and there was a brief struggle. “At one point, he did plead for his life. He said ‘please don’t shoot me’ … and they still shot him one time,” Clark said.

Stuhlman was shot once in the chest and died. The teens, police say, made off with nothing.  More
