phoneNew York – A Long Island man said he suffered a football-sized third-degree burn when his iPhone exploded in his pocket while he was on his way to a funeral.

Erick Johnson, of Lindenhurst, spent 10 days in the hospital after his iPhone spontaneously combusted on Valentine’s Day, his lawyer told the Daily News.

Johnson and his brother were on their way to their 25-year-old cousin’s wake, said personal injury lawyer Mike Della, with Gruenberg Kelly Della.

Johnson parked his cars and dropped his keys while he got out. When the 29-year-old bent down to pick them up, he heard a pop in his pocket, where he kept his iPhone 5C, Della said.  More

lipAustralia – A young woman got the shock of her life when a lip enhancing product she bought online left her looking like she had just gone a round in a boxing ring.

Brittany Forster, 24, of Perth, Western Australia, bought CandyLipz from the company’s website and tried it – sticking the apple-shaped device over her mouth and applying suction.

After two ‘horrific’ minutes of watering eyes and painful lips, she removed the application and was appalled with the results, which had left her with a huge trout pout.

‘I took it off and I just looked in the mirror and I said oh my god what have I done? No, no, no, this can’t be happening,’ Brittany told Daily Mail Australia.  More

Obama to ban bullets by executive action, threatens top-selling AR-15 rifle

Posted By Staff

Date: February 26th, 2015

Category: Nutty News

ar15Washington DC – It’s starting. As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives this month revealed that it is proposing to put the ban on 5.56 mm ammo on a fast track, immediately driving up the price of the bullets and prompting retailers, including the huge outdoors company Cabela’s, to urge sportsmen to urge Congress to stop the president.

Wednesday night, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, stepped in with a critical letter to the bureau demanding it explain the surprise and abrupt bullet ban. The letter is shown below.

The National Rifle Association, which is working with Goodlatte to gather co-signers, told Secrets that 30 House members have already co-signed the letter and Goodlatte and the NRA are hoping to get a total of 100 fast.

“The Obama administration was unable to ban America’s most popular sporting rifle through the legislative process, so now it’s trying to ban commonly owned and used ammunition through regulation,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA-ILA, the group’s policy and lobby shop. “The NRA and our tens of millions of supporters across the country will fight to stop President Obama’s latest attack on our Second Amendment freedoms.”  More

buriedPETERBOROUGH, New Hampshire – A Peterborough, New Hampshire man was buried under a solid two feet of snow for more than three hours when he was trying to clear an ice dam on his roof.

Drew Mullins was using a snow rake to remove the snow from a metal roof when he created an avalanche that caused snow to pour down on top of him, throwing him on his back. “I heard a kind of snap and just turned around to see the snow coming off,” Mullins told WBZ-TV.

He says he was already standing in several inches of snow and couldn’t get out of the way fast enough. He was able to free his left leg and use it like a “shovel” to kick snow, but his arms were pinned.

Mullins says he was breathing so heavily he melted some snow around his face and opened up a four inch air pocket to yell for help. “I told myself you’re not going out this way. I kept thinking of my wife and two daughters.”  More

The highway patrol admitted two errors that led to Robin and Beverly Bruins being removed from their car at gunpoint. And, now, the highway patrol is facing a lawsuit.

As the I-Team learned, it all began with confusion over a license plate on a classic car. A highway patrol dash camera recorded a trooper stating over a loudspeaker: “Driver! Remove your keys from the ignition and put them on the roof now!”

From that point Robin Bruins and his wife experienced a daylight nightmare when the senior citizens found themselves looking down the barrels of police pistols.  More

Woman Had To Leave ER To Call 911 From Shopping Mall For Medical Help

cmATLANTA – An Atlanta woman with a life-threatening disease says she had to leave a hospital emergency room and call 911 to get the care she needed.

Christy Mitchell told WGCL-TV she suffers from a rare lung disease that makes it difficult for proper blood flow to deliver oxygen to her body. She has a special pump that circulates medicine through her blood vessels every two minutes.

Last Friday, that pump malfunctioned so a friend drove her to the closest hospital: Gwinnett Medical Center.

But Mitchell claims she was ignored by emergency room staff.

“I felt helpless,” she told WGCL. “We even asked if we could call the PA from Emory that works with me all the time so that she could explain how important it was for this medication to be restarted, and her response was they have no jurisdiction here.”  More

With the final, much-anticipated performance of the night singing Living For Love, Madonna failed to untie her cape in time for her dancers to rip it away as she took to the stage at London’s 02 Arena.

The 56-year-old looked shocked – and briefly stopped singing – after she fell down a set of stairs, but picked herself back up and continued to the end. 

Madonna appeared to land on her back with a bang after she fell down a flight of three steps mid-performance.  More

Valerie Jewell said her St. Bernard, Guinness, and Golden Retriever, Bo, always stay in the yard. But, a squirrel was too tempting and the pair went after it.

The Sudbury River, which is directly behind the house, happened to have a thin coat of ice stretching bank to bank and the snow accumulation reached the top to the backyard fence allowing the dogs to chase the squirrel.

Jewell said on the way back to the house, Guinness fell into the water. Bo stayed next to him, but on the ice, and barked. “Bo was dedicated. He would not leave his side out there,” said Jewell.  More

In the scene, Swayze — playing a tough-guy bouncer, Dalton — teaches his goons at the rowdy bar Double Deuce how to handle unruly customers.

Colorado’s ‘Pot Pregnancies’ Birthing New Generation of Crack Babies

Posted By Staff

Date: February 25th, 2015

Category: Nutty News

pot pregColorado health professionals are coming forward to report an emerging trend: expectant mothers who are addicted to pot.

According to the physicians, as routine pot smokers cease consumption of marijuana upon learning they are pregnant, it can lead to violent or painful withdrawal from tetrahydrocannabinol — also known as THC — the addictive substance found in marijuana.

The March of Dimes reports that the presence of marijuana can lead to premature birth. It can also create problems with brain development which may later affect a child’s “behavior, memory, problem-solving skills and ability to pay attention.” It can also create neonatal abstinence syndrome, in which a baby gets addicted to a drug before birth “then goes through withdrawal after birth.”

In order to treat symptoms as well as help alleviate the pain of the withdrawal process, the physicians in Colorado report they have had to reintroduce doses of THC to expectant mothers, which of course leaves their babies susceptible to addiction and the complications above which often must be treated in neonatal units.  More

This billionaire’s wife wants $1 million a month after divorce

griffinIllinois – Dias Griffin has claimed expenses of nearly $1 million per month, saying that’s how much she needs to support the couple’s three young children, who are all under 10 and have four nannies. The couple has been married since 2003.

Her husband contends that the budget includes “exorbitant expenses” that aren’t for the children, but rather to fund his wife’s extravagant lifestyle.

The budget includes $300,000 a month for a private jet, $160,000 for vacation accommodations, $60,000 for an office space and professional staff, as well as $14,000 per month for groceries and dining out, according to court filings.

The filing states that Griffin has paid for 100% of the children’s needs, except for “her astronomical demand for $450,000 to take a ten-day vacation to St. Barth’s during the winter break.” He claimed he gave her $45,000 instead.  More
