A rat king is a group of dead rats that somehow get knotted by the tail while their blood, feces and saliva acts as a sort of epoxy. There is probably one in your attic or crawlspace as we speak.

Logos for terrorist groups:
1.)Stars

2.) One gun

3.)Two guns

4.)Swords

5.)Crossbones

6.)Multi-headed animals

7.)Other




Before anyone tells me that so-and-so is no longer classified as a terrorist group or that I left someone off--you should know that I just ripped-off all the images and content wholesale from http://www.ironicsans.com/2007/07/terrorist_organization_logos.html where it was posted in 2007.

Your barber will happily shave your eyeballs in accordance with an ancient belief that the process renders the beauty in life more visible.




So... now you know where to go to get that done.

The Mad Bomber, Los Angeles 1912



On November 20th 1912, “Mad Bomber” Carl Warr enters Los Angeles city jail with 60 sticks of dynamite strapped to himself. After an hour, two detectives attack Warr who then pulls the bomb’ s trigger. Nothing happens, and the freakishly masked bomber begs police to kill him. Warr was sensationalized in the press as the Mad Bomber and the next day, this cover ran on Los Angeles Examiner without mentioning his ‘faulty’ fuse.

The Examiner‘s photographer E.J.Spencer was among 10,000 people who banked against police ropes to follow the story. Spencer went into the jail, where he saw Warr sitting in the corner with the infernal machine in his lap. Everyone warned Spencer of the danger, but he carefully placed his plate camera on a chair and made his picture. The coup was so daring that Examiner credited the photographer as seldom has been done; it read “Here is one of the most remarkable newspaper photographs ever published. It was taken by E. J. Spencer, staff photographer of the Examiner, who risked his life to make the picture.”

October, 1930: Over a 4-day story-arc in the nationally syndicated comic 'Mickey Mouse', America's favorite vermin tried to kill himself. In a surprising and uncharacteristically dark turn, Mickey discovers that Minnie is cheating on him. Despondent, he tries to shoot himself, throws himself off a bridge and attempts to asphyxiate by fumes.

But I heard that if you're serious, you cut along the veins... poser.

The is the Well of Death, India.






I probably don't need to tell you that a lot of people die showing off here. You gotta do your thing, though. That's non-negotiable.

I mean, look at this guy:



He's totally got this.

Flash Blood, a growing trend among destitute (even by Africa standards) addicts, sex workers and all their friends. When there isn't enough heroin to go around junkies stop acting all stuck-up and just start injecting themselves with each others blood.

AIDS carrying heroin junkies in Africa are injecting themselves with the blood of AIDS carrying heroin junkies in Africa!



MOMBASA, 24 February 2010 (IRIN) - Amina* and Rajab*, in their mid-twenties, spend most of their days getting high on heroin; when broke, Amina injects herself with Rajab's blood as soon as he has mainlined his heroin, for a second-hand hit.

"Rajab is the one who first introduced me to the idea of transfusing myself with his blood whenever we'd run out of the drug and the cash to buy [more]," she told IRIN/PlusNews from her home in Majengo, a low-income estate in Kenya's coastal city of Mombasa. "I just wanted to feel how Rajab used to feel. I draw his blood using a syringe, then inject it into myself, making me feel high as well."

According to government officials and NGOs in Mombasa, blood sharing, commonly known as “flash blood”, is becoming increasingly common in Mombasa.

Both Amina and Rajab have tested positive for HIV and are on life-prolonging anti-retroviral therapy; this has not stopped them from using heroin or sharing blood, despite the risk of re-infection.

According to the latest Kenya National Strategic plan for HIV/AIDS (KNASP), intravenous drug use (IDU) is responsible for almost a third of new HIV infections in Coast Province, and 3.8 percent of new infections nationally.

High risk

The flash blood technique was first reported in 2005 in East Africa among female sex workers injecting heroin in Tanzania's commercial capital, Dar es Salaam.

"[Flash blood] is a new phenomenon that is, in a sense, a dangerous exaggeration of needle-sharing that magnifies HIV transmission risk," Sheryl McCurdy, of the University of Texas, wrote in a 2005 letter to the British Medical Journal. "If the first injector is infected with HIV or hepatitis C, the amount of virus directly transmitted into the bloodstream by the second injector could be quite large."

A 2009 assessment by the NGO, Darat HIV/AIDS International Agency, of more than 100 narcotics users in Mombasa, a majority of whom were IDUs, identified flash blood as a likely cause of high levels of HIV and hepatitis C - 50 percent and 70 percent respectively - among participants. All those who tested positive for HIV were IDUs.

According to the KNASP, intravenous drug use is on the rise in Mombasa; a 2007 survey identified an estimated 12,200 heroin users, 5,680 in Nairobi Province and 6,520 in Coast Province - approximately 10 percent of whom were IDUs. None was receiving any HIV prevention or drug dependence treatment services.
What the fuck, Sally Struthers?

Slave packing tips:
I knew that those claims of stacking like cordwood were hooey.
If anybody's never heard of the Principality of Sealand, http://www.sealandgov.org/. Abandon a fort in international waters and somebody's gonna claim it as their own country, mint currency, sell noble titles, etc. Apparently their days as a data haven for legally dubious concerns is over, but athletic teams are doing well. Hope to see them in the Olympics and they have an upcoming royal wedding! Not bad for a nation of a couple dozen people and under 6,000 square feet.

The story of Dillinger’s legendary proportions originated with a morgue photo that circulated just after he died. There he is on a gurney, officials from the Cook County Coroner’s office gathered around, and the sheet covering him rising in a conspicuous tent at least a foot above his body, roughly around his loins, though truth be told, it looks more like where his naval should be. Probably his arm, rigid in rigor mortis, was under the sheet. No matter. It looked like he died with an enormous hard-on. Newspaper editors quickly realized how readers interpreted the photo, withdrew it, retouched it, then reprinted it in later wire-service editions, with the sheet nice and flat against the dead man’s body.

But the damage was done. Soon, Dillinger’s likeness appeared in crude pornography. Mostly, however, rumors of his enormous manhood persisted in oral tradition until roughly thirty years after his death, when it congealed into the urban belief tale centered on the Smithsonian.

In a literal sense, the story is almost certainly not true. Dillinger’s autopsy reported nothing unusual about the man. Government workers just look perplexed when asked about the legendary object. No one has ever produced substantial proof that the famed member exists.

Did you see the size of Rasputin's cock in the jar of formaldehyde that I posted yesterday? His parents must have been so proud.

I remember an uncle of my uncle, he loved to hunt and he had a disected lion on his living room. There were stories about that lion, a lot of the guys that worked there and had their rooms in the house used to say that when they were sleeping some heard the lion walking down the hallways and others said they felt the lion stepped up in their beds and smell them. :LOLguy:

What would religious people think about that? God splitting the atom and giving weapons of mass destruction? What loving father likes that for his sons? Only one with infinite fury. How can I "adore" something like that?

Since African oddity is current, the Hottentot Venus!

Saartjie (Sarah) Baartman was born in the Eastern Cape of South Africa in 1789 to a South African Khoisan family....Like other Khoikhoi women, Saartjie had a well-endowed buttocks and an elongated labia. Because of those characteristics a brother of her slave owner became interested in the young female slave. By convincing her that she would become a wealthy woman, Hendrick Cezar persuaded the twenty-one (21) year old Saartjie to travel with him to England for exhibition. Unfortunately, Saartjie had no idea that she would be his exhibition.

In 1810 Saartjie Baartman sailed for London, England with her new owner Hendrick Cezar. He exhibited her as the sideshow attraction, Hottentot Venus. “Hottentot” because it was the European name for the Khoi people. “Venus” because Hendrick wanted to refer to the Roman Goddess of love. In Britain, Saartjie was forced to entertain people by exhibiting and shaking her bare buttocks and displaying her other un-European body features. A recent 2002 news story in the United Kingdom’s “The Guardian” described the British exhibitions this way…

“The first time Saartjie Baartman was dragged out to squat before the mob at 225 Picadilly, the show’s promoter billed her genitals as resembling the skin that hangs from a turkey’s throat [the turkey waddle]. For several years, working class Londoners crowded in to shout vulgarities at the protruding buttocks and large vulva of the unfortunate woman made famous across Europe as the “Hottentot Venus”. The aristocracy was no less fascinated at what they saw as a sexual freak, but they had private showings.”

Her London exhibition after the passing of London’s 1807 Slave Trade Act created a scandal in Britain. An English Abolitionist Society petitioned for her release. But when Saartjie was questioned in court she contended that she freely participated in the exhibits and was guaranteed half the profits. Since eyewitness accounts of her exhibitions contradict her court testimony, the veracity of her statements has been brought into question.

Saartjie was then sold to a Frenchman who took her from London to France. It was here that she was exhibited for fifteen (15) months by an animal trainer named Regu. Her French exhibitions were more pressurized than anything she experienced in England. She was visited by French naturalists and objectified as the subject of several scientific paintings at the Jardin du Joi. Eventually the French tired of her and she was forced to support herself through prostitution. She didn’t last the ravages of a foreign culture and climate or the further abuse of her body. On December 29, 1815 Saartjie Baartman passed away at the age of twenty six (26) years old. Cause of death was given as ‘inflammatory and eruptive sickness, possibly syphilis’.

Her skeleton, preserved genitals and brain were placed on display in Paris, France as recent as 1914 when they were removed from public view. When Stephen Jay Gould’s “The Hottentot Venus” was released in 1985, Saartjie Baartman’s life was brought to the world’s attention. A public outcry began for her remains to be returned to her homeland. In 1994 following the victory of the African National Congress in the South African elections, President Nelson Mandela formally requested the return of her remains. In 2002 France finally agreed and Saartjie Baartman’s remains were repatriated to her homeland.
Tame sources like wikipedia have caricatures of the elongated labia, aka the Hottentot apron, and other stuff that the spoiler glitch makes difficult here.

This mugging victim had a six inch knife plunged deep into her back — and she didn’t even feel it. The shocking picture shows the blade sticking out just above Julia Popova’s shoulders and blood pouring from the wound. Incredibly the 22-year-old, who was knifed by a mugger on her way home from work, failed to notice the appalling injury and managed to calmly stroll to safety. The office worker had grappled with her attacker when he snatched her handbag as she walked to her parents’ house in the Russian capital Moscow. But she was so shocked by the ordeal she didn’t know that the thug had buried a kitchen knife in her neck just fractions of an inch from her spinal cord.

When she got home her horrified parents rushed her to hospital where surgeons managed to remove the blade without damaging Julia’s spine. One medic said: “Shock had kicked in and her body prevented her from feeling any pain. She simply walked home without feeling the knife in her back.”

The first live suicide.



Christine Chubbuck was the host of “Suncoast Digest” a well regarded public affairs program on WXLT-TV in Sarasota, Florida. Breaking format, her guest was waiting across the studio at the news anchor’s desk; Christine read eight minutes of national news stories before the tape reel malfunctioned while describing a shooting at the Beef and Bottle restaurant. Seemingly unfazed by the technical glitch, Christine looked into the camera and said:

“In keeping with Channel 40′s policy of bringing you the latest in blood and guts, and in living color, you are going to see another first: an attempted suicide.”

Taking a revolver out from under her desk, she placed it behind her left ear and pulled the trigger (she learned this was the most effective way to commit suicide from the police while researching a project for her show). She tumbled violently forward as the technical director slowly faded to black. Some viewers called 911 while others called the station to see if it was real. Camerawoman Jean Reed later stated that she didn’t believe it to be genuine until she saw Christine’s body twitching on the floor.

As far as I know, the ones that place the gun somewhere on their head, they don't want to suicide, if they shoot and the bullet hits them, well it worked, but there is a chance that the gun may move or something and just leaving them a scratch. The most effective way is to put the gun in your mouth... or at least that was what the "Security Brigade" told us.

Re: Christine Chubbuck, I remember this part from the wikipedia page on her:
Her focus on her lack of relationships is generally considered to be the driving force for her depression; her mother later summarized "her suicide was simply because her personal life was not enough." She lamented to co-workers her 30th birthday was approaching and she was still a virgin who had never been on more than two dates with a man.

"Somebody call the ambulance, the doctor, and the police!"

Yeah, because there's anything that can be done. Wow. That is shocking. I can't say I've ever watched anyone actually die.

The way the blood just pours out of his nose is incredible.

Now that is how you sell some motherfucking towels!



“French Towels, Turkish Towels, Bath Towels, Welsh Towels, Swedish Towels, Towels of all Kind.”

Please note that this man is dressed entirely in towels and apparently carried around a bell to ring just to make sure everyone noticed.
