I’m gloomy today.

I wanted to update every day this week (probably not going to) so here’s an update to say that people, my life and the world in general seem to suck. Trying to type up a more elaborate reason on word which I might post tomorrow but is probably just going to end up deleting like always. I wanted to have this part in small font so people could ignore it but I can’t find where I should click.

Michael Faherty died in his home in December 2010. His body was badly burned, but a fire in the nearby fireplace did not cause the blaze, forensic experts said. Scorch marks on the ceiling above the body and the floor below, and no trace of accelerant, led the coroner to return the controversial verdict, the first of its kind in Ireland, according to the BBC.

“This fire was thoroughly investigated and I’m left with the conclusion that this fits into the category of spontaneous human combustion, for which there is no adequate explanation,” West Galway coroner Dr. Ciaran McLoughlin told a court Thursday.

I didn’t think “Spontaneous combustion” was accepted as a cause of death anymore. I’ve heard that it’s usual a case of older people who smoke and drink in bed, and pass out with the cigarette still burning. I don’t have a source on that though, but I’m a firm believer in Occam’s razor, even though there’s some awesome appeal to spontanious combustion because it just.sounds.so.badass.

Sauceidy sauceiness.

How much money would someone have to pay you to do this for a party you hated?

What is this I don’t even, WHAT? This news article reads as a horror story. I have several theories why someone would hide in a portable toilet:

a) They have an unhealthy hide-and-seek obsession.

b) They made a really complicated scheme to rob or assault festival attendees.

c) Their scat fetish is spiralling out of control.

A woman at the Hanuman Festival went into the portable toilet Friday and noticed something moving in the tank when she lifted the lid, according to police spokeswoman Kim Kobel. The woman exited and asked a man nearby to look inside the tank.

The man told police he saw something moving under a tarp, and when he left the toilet he heard it lock from the inside.A security supervisor then waited outside for the person to emerge. When he did, the supervisor tried to get him to sit down, Kobel said, but he ran off, covered in feces.

The suspect, who was not wearing a shirt or shoes when he came out of the toilet, was described as a white man in his 20s wearing gray sweatpants, around 6-foot-5 to 6-foot-8-inches tall with a skinny build and black hair.

GREAT idea, isn’t it? No? Anyone? Bueller?

Well… Sarah Burge, gangstername “Human Barbie” thought so. Is it just me or does the name “Human Barbie” sound a bit like the name for a potential serial killer?

From the article: “The 50-year old, whose comments come in the weeks ministers vowed to crack down on the sexualization of children, said her girl ‘squealed with delight’ when given the £6,000 gift”

I don’t think much needs to be said about this. It’s just cool and it needs to be watched.

1. Man rebuilt vibrator into bomb.

I like when insane people actually look insane. If we could tell who was a nut-case from their hair, it would make the world a little easier. I think this quote summons up the story quite nicely:

Lester, whose rap sheet includes domestic assault and drunk driving busts, allegedly was planning on giving the vibrator as a Christmas gift to one of three former girlfriends, with whom he had relationships that “ended badly.” The woman who contacted police said Lester told her that “when the device was inserted into the female he would pull the trigger and it would blow them up.”

I thought about a similar revenge for a guy once: A fleshlight with hidden mixer-blades that would be triggered once you put something inside of it. If I ever decide to start producing it, I’ll contact Lester for help.

2. Man is slowly turning into a unicorn!!!

But he’s doing it wrong! It’s supposed to be on your frontal lobe, silly. Actually, it doesn’t really look like a unicorn horn at all, more like a tiny gray pickle. But a girl could wish…

 

 

 

 

 

3. Cockroach found in woman’s anus.

Pff I’m 10. Seriously though. It’s an ALIVE COCKROACH inside someone’s bum. I didn’t think this was *that* gross until I read the comment section. Some posters claim that the bug was in too good condition to have passed through the digestive tract, so it can’t have been eaten, and it can’t have crawled up there since the muscles in the colon would have damaged it… which leaves the option that it was somehow inserted during the colonoscopy.
