pilotA Mexican pilot is out of a job after he let a stunning singer and her actress friend sit in his cockpit seat and permitted them to control the plane while it was airborne.

The pilot, who has not been named, was let go from his job with the Magnicharters airline after photos emerged Twitter of 23-year old Mexican singer Esmeralda Ugalde and her 19-year old actress friend Samadhi Zendejas posing in the pilot’s cabin and wearing his hat.

After Ugalde posted the picture to her Twitter account, which has over 40,000 followers, it went viral and quickly forced the airline that operates domestic holiday flights out of Mexico City International Airport to can the pilot.

“We cannot allow a pilot to make this kind of mistake, it is just not allowed.” company spokesman Jorge Badia told The New York Daily News. “Even if the autopilot was working it is not allowed to do something like this.  More

Police said Sean Boies, 29, used a phishing scheme to get IDs and passwords of University of Iowa students

dog poopIn August 2014, a dog pooped in the middle of a Philadelphia-bound flight, forcing an emergency landing.

A large dog went to the bathroom in the plane’s aisle as many as three times, making people nearby physically ill.

The second time after the dog pooped, the crew ran out of paper towels, so the pilot announced an emergency landing.

The plane was diverted to Kansas City, Missouri, where a cleaning crew cleaned the mess, before eventually making its way to Philadelphia.  More Strange Facts

Dolls without faces for Muslim children

Posted By Staff

Date: December 13th, 2014

Category: Bizarre, strange, Weird

facesChina – The doll is being manufactured in China, but it was created in the UK by a designer by the name of Ridhwana B.

“I came up with the idea from scratch after speaking to some parents who were a little concerned about dolls with facial features.

Some parents won’t leave the doll with their children at night because you are not allowed to have any eyes in the room,” she said.

According to the Qu’ran, “There is an Islamic ruling which forbids the depiction of facial features of any kind and that includes pictures, sculptures and, in this case, dolls.” So, in order to cater to the needs of Muslim children, Ridhwana “spoke to a religious scholar in Leicester who guided [her] through what was and what was not permissible when producing the product.”

“The Deeni Doll has no face on it whatsoever and is Shariah compliant,” she said.  More

ricciNew Jersey – The 21-year-old student suing her estranged parents for university fees was back in court this week claiming they should be held in contempt because they refuse to pay.

Caitlyn Ricci filed a motion on Monday arguing that her parents, Michael Ricci and Maura McGarvey, violated a judge’s previous decision by failing to pay her $16,000 tuition at Temple University, Philadelphia.

Ricci’s father said he has no intention of paying until his daughter reconnects with the New Jersey family. Ricci hasn’t spoken with her parents for two years.

“That’s fine. They can hold me in contempt of court. They can do whatever they want,” Mr Ricci told US TV station WPVI-TV. “I’m not going to pay. I’m not going to give them any money until my daughter has a relationship with me and we start to heal our family.”  More

suggCalifornia – A jury found a 30-year-old father and his girlfriend guilty Wednesday of torture and child abuse for starving two of his children and physically abusing a third.

Erik Austin Flores and Mariah Rita Sugg, 23, were arrested in June after San Bernardino County social workers were called by employees at the Marinello School of Beauty in Victorville, who saw the emaciated children when both defendants brought them to the school, according to a news release from the San Bernardino District Attorney’s Office.

unbrokenTOKYO – Angelina Jolie’s new movie “Unbroken” has not been released in Japan yet, but it has already struck a nerve in a country still fighting over its wartime past.

And the buzz on social networks and in online chatter is decidedly negative over the film that depicts a U.S. Olympic runner who endures torture at a Japanese World War II prisoner-of-war camp.

Some people are calling for a boycott of the movie, although there is no release date in Japan yet. It hits theaters in the U.S. on Dec. 25.

The movie follows the real-life story of Louis Zamperini as told in a 2010 book by Laura Hillenbrand. The book has not been translated into Japanese, but online trailers have provoked outrage.  More

Kwame Ajamu, Terry GilbertCleveland – This is the moment a Cleveland man was exonerated of a murder he didn’t commit – 40 years after the killing took place.

Kwame Ajamu was just 17 years old when he was sentenced to death in 1975 after businessman Harry Franks was beaten and shot dead outside a convenience store in his neighborhood. 

Then going under the name Ronnie Bridgeman, he was jailed alongside his brother Wiley Bridgeman, then aged 20, and their friend Ricky Jackson, 19.

But the case against them unraveled after the prosecution’s star witness, a 13-year-old, recounted his testimony last year, saying he lied after being pressured and fed evidence by detectives.  More    More True Crime Stories

Man cuts off his own head with a chainsaw

chainThe Darwin Awards started in 1985, or thereabouts: smart-aleck citizens of what would one day be called the internet collecting stories of deaths so staggeringly stupid that the victims were said to have contributed to human evolution by ‘self-selecting’ themselves for extinction.

In 1996, the top award went to a Polish farmer, Krystof Azninski, who “staked a strong claim to being Europe’s most macho man by cutting off his own head.”

Mr Azninski and his friends, who had been drinking, decided to strip naked and engage in a contest of masculinity. They started by hitting each other over the head with frozen turnips, but when one man cut off his own foot with a chainsaw, Azninski felt compelled to respond.

One of the men was quoted as saying: “It’s funny, because when he was young he put on his sister’s underwear. But he died like a man.”   More Strange Facts

Jade Sylvester, from England, knocks back at least eight pieces of toilet tissue every time she goes to the toilet and says she just “can’t quit” the roll, according to The Huffington Post.

The 25-year-old said her taste for toilet tissue started when she was pregnant and suspects it may have been caused by a condition known as Pica, which brings on “non-traditional” cravings, The Huffington Post reported.

“I started craving toilet roll. I still don’t know why,” she said.

john pWisconsin – During a recent traffic stop, a Wisconsin motorist who has nine prior drunk driving convictions on his record explained that the reason a sheriff’s deputy smelled booze on his breath was because he had just eaten beer-battered fish at lunch.

John Przybyla (picture) was pulled over by a cop who spotted the 75-year-old’s vehicle driving erratically. When the Adams County Sheriff’s Office deputy approached Przybyla–who was driving on a revoked license–he recognized the “smell of a moderate odor of an intoxicating beverage emitting from his breath.”

Przybyla’s eyes were also bloodshot and glossy, according to a police report detailing the 2:30 PM traffic stop.

During field sobriety tests, Przybyla “showed impairment.” Additionally, Deputy Brian Loewenhagen found an open can of Red Dog Beer on the truck’s passenger seat.  More

kidneySILVER SPRING, Maryland – He was given a second chance at life but this weekend, violence claimed the life of Jonathan Harris, a two-time kidney transplant survivor.

Harris was killed during a burglary at his home—a devastating end after he’d already survived so much.

A call to 911 for a burglary sent police cars racing to the quiet Silver Spring neighborhood Saturday morning. Investigators say Patricia Harris found her 26-year-old son murdered.

From the beginning, Harris fought for life. He was born with one kidney and his second one started to fail when he was 12. In 2010, he and his mother—along with 30 others—took part in the largest mass kidney transplant in history at Georgetown Transplant Institute. Their story was featured on the Today Show.  More

The one kilometer line carries supplies and people daily, saving the mountaintop community from making a grueling one day journey down into the valley and then up the other side over a narrow and dangerous pathway.

The cables are strung between two high cliff faces with a steel cage suspended below to carry visitors, locals and tools in and out of the village.

The journey takes just a few minutes, as opposed to a day, meaning the children can get to school and adults to work.  More

Edelman was so incensed when his take-out order from Sichuan Garden restaurant in Brookline cost $57.35 instead of $53.35 because of an outdated online menu that he engaged in a mind-numbing campaign of complaints and threats against Duan.

First he demanded to be refunded triple the $4, then he warned that he would go after Duan in court.  More
