Family Terrorized By Venomous Spider That Came By Delivery With Their Fruit

spider-Waitrose-shopping-524803

*Imagine, a hairy spider approximately the size of your hand, coming out of the bag along with your bananas. A family in South London can tell you first hand, its no laughing matter.

The first thought after – RUN! – is to try and trap it, so that you can get it outside, right? Well, when they did manage to trap the lethal creature – they were horrified to watch as it ripped off its own leg trying to get free.
We’re not talking some little skinny eyelash-looking leg, we’re talking more tarantula type. Yuk!!! The insect, called a Brazilian wandering spider, was inadvertently delivered in a bag of groceries by a local supermarket.
Of course, when the dad saw the spider, he dropped the bananas into the fruit bowl, inadvertently trapping the terrifying creature’s leg.

Detroit Man Will Swap His Decrepit House for Your iPhone 6

Detroit man swap home for iphone 6

*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.

Ebola: Not Every Infected Liberian Died. Meet Seven of the 25 Survivors!

*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.

Survivors?

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

Retailers Promote ‘Ebola Costumes’ For Halloween (And Some of You Think It’s Cool)

Ebola costume1

Pictured above: A photo of an Ebola costume.

*With Halloween only a few short weeks away, costume outlets are ablaze with what kind of dollars they can bring in from the latest costume craze. What will it be this year? A superhero? A scary monster? A hazmat suit? An Ebola victim?

Social media buzz is leaning towards the last two.

Oh yeah, remember “Breaking Bad,” the super-popular TV series with Bryan Cranston as chemistry professor-turned-drug-kingpin “Walter White” and Aaron Paul as the lovable, strung-out-junkie-turned-sidekick, “Jessie?”

Well, costume sellers say they still have left over yellow jumpsuits, rubber gloves and masks from last Halloween, when that costume was the sh*t. This year they predict some of you Breaking Bad cult members may want to re-purpose those digs to display your take on Ebola.

For anyone who thinks that might be cool, I’ll bet you wouldn’t if it hit closer to home. Continue reading

FBI Looking for Man Who Yelled, ‘I Have Ebola!’ on Los Angeles Bus…Be Warned: Don’t Do This!

EBOLA GALLOWAY CDC

*There’s nothing like a jackass with an agenda.

Take one Los Angeles bus rider who decides to take the most serious health crisis the world has seen since god knows when to yell, “I have Ebola!” in the midst of a busload of people, frightening the hell out of them. Add to that, in a city like Los Angeles, where many foreigners and immigrants reside and ride the bus. Even with language barriers – once they hear the word Ebola…Mass chaos!

Well, the police are looking for this fool. And when they find him, he’s going straight to jail!

I just learned that his actions caused the teachers at one Los Angeles County school – obviously with half the story – to tell a classroom of students that Ebola has reached L. A. Now these children, frightened as all get out, have run home to tell – and frighten – their parents.

This is how ish starts.

Be warned: This is not a joke. Do not go around screaming “I have Ebola,” unless you’re ready to go to jail.

Period! Continue reading
