*She just couldn’t let him go, I suppose. Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa was apparently so hung up on a guy she had met online and went out with about six-times, that when he decided to end their relationship, she channeled her inner Santa Claus and tried to get into his house through the chimney.
Unfortunately, she got stuck halfway down.
She probably has mixed-feelings about the neighbor who heard her crying at around 5a.m. and called police. After all, once they rescued her, they took her straight to jail. Continue reading →
*Don’t look too bad on the outside, huh? With the price of real estate sky-rocketing all over the place, you may want to seriously consider taking this man up on his offer to swap his decrepit house in Detroit for an iPhone 6.
The house has three bedrooms, a basement and garden. But as you can imagine, its in pretty bad shape. For starters, it has no front door and broken windows.
The house has been on the market in the bankrupt city, but so far nobody has come forward to buy.
*Hey, I’ll be the first person to raise a brow at this accusation, but nevertheless, its a claim one Canadian man made against a Fredericton, New Brunswick, McDonald’s in that country.
Haven’t you heard Mickey Dee’s has the best coffee ever? Apparently, Ron Morais did too. He told the CBC that he was nearly at the bottom of his cup, when he decided to take the lid off and gulp the rest of it down – but stopped short because “there was a little bit of a surprise in my coffee cup. It was a dead mouse.”

*The answer to that headline question is probably “absolutely not!” Seeing as nuts is no longer a part of the subject’s anatomy. Have you ever heard the term “nullo?” Well, since we know that we can learn something new every day. This is today’s “new thing.” A “nullo” is a man who has removed his sex organ. And the man in this story that decided to become one recently opened up about why he decided to cut his penis and testicles off and become a “nullo.”
Of course there’s the option to take a look at the bottom of this story.
He goes by the name “Gelding,” and he’s not surprised that people think he’s a bit strange once they learn what he’s done. Continue reading →
*Whoa. Apparently, real estate is at an all-time-high all around the globe. And governing bodies are becoming more creative as a result. Take “final resting places” for example. As a result of a recent “that’s kosher” ruling from the Orthodox rabbis in Israel, preceded by the country’s extreme land crunch, the green light has been given for the design and building of vertical cemeteries in densely populated countries. In other words, instead of your final resting place being underground, it can now be six feet over. Still don’t get it? When you go visit the gravesite of your loved one, you might have to take an elevator to get there! OK, Now you can close your mouth… Continue reading →
*The extremely frightening Ebola virus seems to have just appeared out of nowhere, and just as quickly and mysteriously, it has become epidemic. Thus far, four thousand persons have lost their lives, mainly in Liberia – where we first learned about it. And health officials don’t appear to be any closer to learning more about how it is contracted. Is it airborne? Is it similar to AIDS, where one must be in contact with an affected persons’ fluids? Do you have to be in “direct” contact…and how close is ‘direct’?
According to the World Health Organization, the epidemic has a 70 percent mortality rate, and it is said to leave survivors immune to the strain that sickened them.
Yes. We know about the American survivors; those who returned from Liberia after helping tend to the affected there. All white. All survived. We know that a nurse that tended to Thomas Eric Duncan, the black man who traveled from Liberia to Dallas – and died days later. We also know about two nurses who contracted Ebola, one who had tended to Mr. Duncan has now been diagnosed. But what we are just now learning is that not everyone who carried the virus in Liberia, died from it.
We can actually put a face to a portion of the remaining 30-percent. People like Sontay Massaley, pictured above, who still live in Liberia; have managed to survive the Ebola virus, and lived to tell about it.
Perhaps some of the answers we seek in learning about the epidemic lies in the living, not the dead. Continue reading →
*As if the real world life of actor Stephen Collins could get any worse.
Collins soon-to-be-ex wife, Faye Grant, is said to have been holding the threat of releasing audio tape that she secretly recorded at a 2012 therapy session with the actor – who admitted to “molesting and exposing himself” to three girls some decades ago – over his head for quite some time.
And according to Collins attorney, she had her reasons for doing so.
Since the “reveal,” Collins has been in hiding and his career has gone into decline at a rapid pace. He has lost major film and TV roles (namely Mark Wahlberg’s move “Ted 2″ and a recurring gig on “Scandal”) and the UP TV network even pulled “7th Heaven” reruns (I’ll bet the other actors are pissed!), where he famously played a minister. Collins also had the decency to resign from Screen Actor’s Guild board of directors; and he has also been dropped by his talent agency.
Nobody would want to be in this guy’s shoes right now. And with new victims starting to come out of the woodwork, his troubles show no indication of slowing down anytime soon.
But here’s the thing that beats all. Stephen Collins actually filmed a movie in 2013, where he played a pedophile priest! The film has been making festival rounds lately, and the poor director, Jeff Wolfe, tried hard to distance himself from the actor. Continue reading →
