Chemistry Student Killed By Exploding Bubble Gum

Apr 16, 2010 | No Comments


KYIV, Ukraine — A chemistry student has been killed by exploding bubble gum that tore off half of his face, police said Thursday.

Vladimir Likhonos, a student at a regional branch of the Kyiv Polytechnical Institute, is thought to have accidentally dipped his chewing gum into explosives he was using for his studies, police spokeswoman Elvira Biganova told The Associated Press.

She said the 25-year-old mistook the powder for citric acid, which he often added to prolong the gum’s taste.

He was working on his home computer Saturday night in the town of Konotop when his mother heard the sound of the explosion, according to authorities.

She turned around to find Vladimir, 25, on the floor bleeding.

Likhonos blew off his entire jaw and most of the lower part of his face in Saturday’s accident.

Medical workers who arrived on the scene attempted to treat his injuries but were unable to save him.

“Even some of our seasoned officers, who have seen a thing or two, even they were pretty badly shaken up by what they found,” Biganova said.

On the table where Likhonos had been working police found about 3.5 ounces (100 grams) of the suspected explosive – a powder that resembles citric acid but has yet to be identified, she said.

“Anybody could have mixed them up,” Biganova said.

A bomb squad was dispatched to determine the nature of the substance, which was deemed too volatile to transport, Biganova said.

School officials have charged two teachers with misconduct after the pair was found naked inside an empty classroom.

BROOKLYN — Two female teachers from James Madison High School in Brooklyn are being charged with misconduct after allegedly being caught naked together in a classroom.

Officials say the women, both tenured teachers, were immediately removed from the classroom following the incident and sent to Department of Education disciplinary chambers.

Outraged students created a Facebook page to sound off on the incident involving the two popular teachers.

Water bills go up as usage drops

PORTLAND, Maine – The grim economy is hitting some consumers in the wallet in yet another way: their water bills.

Many water utilities are raising rates because water use is down, in part because manufacturers have closed or are cutting back, tourism has fallen and the real estate market is in the doldrums.

Water sales for the Kennebunk, Kennebunkport & Wells Water District in southern Maine fell 11 percent last year, to 1995 levels. The No. 1 reason is the sour economy, said superintendent Norm Labbe. [...]

Beggars are not always poor

Apr 11, 2010 | No Comments

We can see them every day on the street and they ask for change. Sometimes we feel sorry for them, because they look like they don’t have where to live and they don’t have money to eat. Most of them are like that. They are really poor and they are starving. But, you can always see a cheater, who doesn’t want to work and then they are trying to trick people. They look poor and hurt and some people give them money. Then they walk in to the restaurant and order meal. This happened in China. Dying man suddenly miraculously become alive and healthy.

Scarface School Play

Apr 9, 2010 | No Comments

Someone sent this elementary school production of Scarface. I have no idea what district would allow such explicit material to be portrayed by children, or why they used popcorn instead of cocaine. My guess is some drama teacher got his pink slip and said, “F*ck it, I’m puttin’ on Scarface.” Then before the administrators knew it, Tony Montana was dead face-down in a hot tub and parents were clapping from sheer confusion.

Fox Nation Punks Itself with Global Warming “News” Story

Apr 8, 2010 | 2 Comments


Jeeze, Fox Nation ran this story yesterday, and I’ve yet to see any other outlet pick it up. You would think that a thing like this would have been more widely reported…

Famed global warming activist James Schneider and a journalist friend were both found frozen to death on Saturday, about 90 miles from South Pole Station, by the pilot of a ski plane practicing emergency evacuation procedures.

Oh, wow. That’s really sad to hear. Thank you, Fox Nation, for bringing this sorrowful and somewhat suspiciously ironic story to light. But what was this famous activist whom I’ve never heard of doing down there in the first place?

One friend of Prof. Schneider told ecoEnquirer that he had been planning a trip to an ice sheet to film the devastation brought on by global warming. His wife, Linda, said that she had heard him discussing the trip with his environmental activist friends, but she assumed that he was talking about the Greenland ice sheet, a much smaller ice sheet than Antarctica.

He kept talking about when they ‘get down to chili’, and I thought they were talking about the order in which they would consume their food supplies“, Mrs. Schneider recounted. “I had no idea they were talking about Chile, the country from which you usually fly or sail in order to reach Antarctica.”

Oh, wow. That’s really… kind of pretty unbelievable. I don’t wanna not trust you, Fox Nation, just because you’re Fox Nation, but, um… I’m gonna check with Snopes on this one

The above-referenced ironic tale of a global warming activist’s freezing to death in Antarctica was presented on the Fox Nation web site as a straightforward news story on 29 March 2010. However, the original source for the story (which is linked from the Fox site) was a 2006 article from ecoEnquirer.com, a satirical site featuring spoof articles such as “Court Orders Fisherman to Apologize to Eagle” and “Penguins ‘Fed Up’ with Media Attention.”

You know what they say, Fox Nation. The best April Fools jokes are the ones you play on yourself. (Do they say that? I don’t know, maybe.)

Update: It seems that Fox Nation accidentally deleted this highly important news story from their site. Whoops! Don’t worry, Fox Nation. Google kept a cached version of the page for you. (Thanks for the heads up, siskita and KT.)

US military admits role in killing of Afghan women

Apr 6, 2010 | No Comments

The US-led military command in Kabul admitted, after an earlier denial, that American forces killed three Afghan female civilians in February, and tried to cover up their deaths. There are reports that “Special Operations forces dug bullets out of the bodies of the women to hide the true nature of their deaths,” and “that an Afghan-led team of investigators had found signs of evidence tampering at the scene, including the removal of bullets from walls near where the women were killed.” One was a pregnant mother of 10 and another was a pregnant mother of six.

Digging bullets out of pregnant women? Thats BS!
