dixonUK – A man who offered to take his neighbor’s dog for a walk tied the animal to a tree and hacked it to death with an ax.

Kevin Dixon slammed the weapon into the animals body several times after telling its owner he would take the dog for a “last walk”.

Dixon has avoided jail despite previously being found guilty of causing the Akita-type dog unnecessary suffering in the attack on May 16 last year.

The 35-year-old axed the dog to death after it bit several people including a four-year-old boy – but he claimed he didn’t cause unnecessary suffering because the animal was dead within 10 seconds.  More

Doctors remove leech from boy’s throat

Posted By Staff

Date: April 9th, 2015

Category: Medicine

leechChina – When a Chinese schoolboy lost consciousness after complaining of a sore throat, doctors discovered a startling cause— a 2.75 inch leech had been growing inside him for a month, Central European News (CEN) reported.

According to medics, 11-year-old Xiaobo Chien likely became infected after drinking from a pond on the side of the road on his way home from school in China’s Sichuan Province. Doctors believe the water, which farmers had collected to use for irrigation, contained leech larvae.

“He hadn’t told us about the water-drinking so it never occurred to us that he may have picked up something,” the boy’s mother, Xiang Tung, 33, told CEN. “We gave him medication and kept him in bed but if anything it started getting worse, with him sometimes blacking out.”

A hospital spokesman told CEN that the leech larvae had lodged in the boy’s respiratory tract.  More

treeIn 1883, Henry Ziegland, of Honey Grove, Texas, jilted his sweetheart, who then killed herself.

Her brother tried to avenge her by shooting Ziegland, but the bullet only grazed his face and buried itself in a tree.

The brother, believing that he had killed Ziegland, then took his own life.

In 1913 Ziegland was cutting down the tree with the bullet in it. It was a difficult job, so he used dynamite.

The explosion sent the old bullet through Ziegland’s head and killed him.  More Nutty Facts

Abraham Lincoln’s Yellow Mutt

Posted By Staff

Date: April 8th, 2015

Category: True Facts

fidoA few days before his eighth birthday, in February 1817, Abraham Lincoln shot a wild turkey. He hoped the kill would impress his father. Instead, the sight of the dead bird left the future president traumatized. Lincoln later wrote that he never again pulled a trigger on “any larger game.”

Around 1855, Lincoln adopted a stray yellow mutt he named Fido (from fidelis, Latin for “faithful”). Fido lived up to his name, accompanying Lincoln everywhere. But after the election of 1860, Lincoln feared the trip to Washington would be too stressful, and left the dog behind with friends.

He even left behind Fido’s favorite horsehair sofa to keep him comfortable.

When the president died, Fido returned the love, standing guard as thousands of mourners filed through Lincoln’s home to pay their respects.  More True Facts

Luke Shambrook was spotted from a police helicopter before noon in the Fraser National Park in Victoria state 2 miles from his family’s campground where he disappeared from on Friday morning, Police Commander Rick Nugent said.

“We are told that Luke is well, that he is exhausted, he’s suffering hypothermia and he’s also dehydrated,” Nugent told reporters.

“In some ways it’s a miracle,” Nugent told reporters. “You will have all seen the terrain here, how thick it is, how cold it’s been of a night. We’ve had rain most of this morning. To spot him now is an absolute relief. And the joy by all of us that he’s been found is just hard to describe.”  More

Turkey’s top religious body allows toilet paper

Posted By Staff

Date: April 7th, 2015

Category: strange

turkeyTurkey’s Directorate of Religious Affairs (Diyanet) has released a fatwa stating that usage of toilet paper is permissible within Islam, though it emphasized that water should be the primary source of cleansing.

Reminding that for a prayer to be religiously legitimate, one’s body, clothes and the place where the prayer is to be performed should be free of items defined as “unclean” by Islam, the fatwa said the cleaning should be conducted with water.

“If water cannot be found for cleansing, other cleaning materials can be used. Even though some sources deem paper to be unsuitable as a cleaning material, as it is an apparatus for writing, there is no problem in using toilet paper,” read a part of the statement.

Meanwhile in a separate statement, the Diyanet also ruled that people who beg in order to earn money beyond their immediate needs are “demanding the fire of hell.”   More

New law makes it illegal to take a squirt gun within 150 feet of a school, real guns OK

waterTennessee – The Tennessee House of Representatives passed a bill Monday night that makes it illegal to take a squirt gun — but not a real gun — within 150 feet of a school.

The new ban was included in a larger bill that would nix any local laws prohibiting people with gun permits from taking guns to parks.

The federal “Guns Free School Zones” act makes it illegal for anyone who doesn’t have a permit from taking a gun within 1,000 feet of a school.

If that person has a permit from the state in which the school is located, though, they can take the gun near school property, the law states.  More

Doppelgänger

Date: April 7th, 2015

Category: Strange Facts

admiralA doppelgänger is a look-alike or double of a living person, sometimes portrayed as a paranormal phenomenon, and in some traditions as a harbinger of bad luck. The word doppelgänger is often used in a more general sense to describe any person who physically or behaviorally resembles another person.

A famous Victorian apparition was the strange appearance of Vice-Admiral Sir George Tryon.

He was said to have walked through the drawing room of his family home in Eaton Square, London, looking straight ahead, without exchanging a word to anyone, in front of several guests at a party being given by his wife on 22 June 1893 while he was supposed to be in a ship of the Mediterranean Squadron, maneuvering off the coast of Syria.

Subsequently it was reported that he had gone down with his ship, HMS Victoria, that very same night, after it had collided with HMS Camperdown following an unexplained and bizarre order by him to turn the ship in the direction of the other vessel.  More Strange Facts

las vegasLas Vegas – The day before he put a gun to his head and killed himself at an M Resort buffet on Easter Sunday, a Las Vegas man filled a box with his complaints against the resort and its employees and mailed it to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

In his final, angry message to the world, delivered to the newspaper Monday morning, John Noble blamed his suicide on depression that set in after the Henderson resort awarded him free meals at the buffet for life then banned him from the property in 2013 for harassing some of the women working there.

“Today, I end my life due to the M Resort Spa Casino and its employees,” the 53-year-old Noble wrote in one of two suicide notes he included with an obsessively detailed dossier on the people he blamed for destroying his life.

At about 4:50 p.m. Sunday, Noble shot himself in the resort on south Las Vegas Boulevard near St. Rose Parkway.  More

Police Hunt For Man Who Fired Shots At Brawl At Resorts World Casino

Posted By Staff

Date: April 6th, 2015

huntNEW YORK – Police are searching for the man who they believe fired shots in the parking lot of the Resorts World Casino, shortly after a massive brawl broke out inside Friday night.

After the chaos spilled out to the parking lot, one person captured dashcam video that appeared to show a man pulling out a gun and shooting, CBS2’s Dave Carlin reported.

The NYPD said it used a combination of surveillance video, a license plate reader, vehicle registration information, driver’s license photos and facial recognition software before identifying the suspect as Jaquan Roberts, 22.

He is described as black, 6 feet tall and about 180 pounds. He was arrested in 2010 for possession of a loaded .22-caliber revolver after he shot himself in the leg, police said.

In video of the melee, taken around 10:30 p.m. Friday, people are seen hurling chairs across the casino’s food court and throwing punches as innocent bystanders try to run for cover.  More

100-Year-old barn stolen from farm

barnIt must have taken a several-person crew to steal the Ruggeberg’s barn.

That’s one of the things Sally Ruggeberg finds most appalling — that more than one person thought it was a good idea to steal the barn from a century farm.

And the thieves evidently took their time, carefully cutting away 24-foot-long sections of hand-hewn beams.

They took walls and floors — even the original hay door. Cut marks show whoever gutted the inside of the barn must have brought along a generator and power tools.

The electricity had been turned off at the property last fall.  More

Vijay Chokal-IngamVijay Chokal-Ingam reveals that he gamed the system and managed to get into medical school by claiming he was a black man.

Chokal-Ingam, who graduated from the University of Chicago with a meager 3.1 GPA, says that his ploy began he saw his fellow Asian Indian-Americans, many of whom had higher grades, fail to get into medical school.

“I shaved my head, trimmed my long Indian eyelashes, and applied to medical school as a black man,”

“My change in appearance was so startling that my own fraternity brothers didn’t recognize me at first. I even joined the Organization of Black Students and started using my embarrassing middle name that I had hidden from all of my friends since I was a 9 years old.”

As a fake black man, he allegedly secured interviews at nine highly selective medical schools, including Harvard, Columbia, and the University of Pennsylvania.  More

The Green Children

Posted By Staff

Date: April 6th, 2015

Category: Strange Facts

greenOne day at harvest time, according to William of Newburgh during the reign of King Stephen (1135–1154), the villagers of Woolpit discovered two children, a brother and sister, beside one of the wolf pits that gave the village its name.

Their skin was green, they spoke an unknown language, and their clothing was unfamiliar. The children were taken to the home of Richard de Calne. The pair refused all food for several days until they came across some raw beans, which they consumed eagerly.

The children gradually adapted to normal food and in time lost their green color. The boy, who appeared to be the younger of the two, became sickly and died shortly after he and his sister were baptised.

After learning to speak English the surviving girl explained that they came from a land where the sun never shone and the light was like twilight.  Continued at Nutty Facts
