For the many many who enjoyed "Eyebrows," may I present "Hair" (Go ahead, be judgmental)

Adultry Can Be Painful

Donessa Davis found out how painful adultery can be when you get caught. His wife, Tracy, found out he had some internet honeys on the side and clued three of them in on his game. One of the mistresses, Theresa Ziemann, invited Davis to meet her at a motel for a 'massage'. When he arrived she convinced him to allow her to tie him to the bed and blindfold him. Next she allowed two more of the mistresses in the room. Wendy Sewell, Michelle Belliveau, along with Zeimann proceeded to hit Davis and threaten him with a gun. As the final punishment they glued his privates to his stomach with super glue. The women then took his mobile phone, wallet, and car leaving Davis to be later discovered and taken to the hospital.

Bonus: There are pictures of the 'lovely' ladies as well.

Forgotten and Unseen Electronics Part 36

I haven't been able to find anything for a while since some of the sites I check decided to go on vacation. Today I found a gadget for the computer called the Combimouse. It's a mouse and keyboard put together. It's not for sale anywhere yet because they are looking for an interested investor. I don't think this would be good to have because I don't see a left or right click button on it anywhere.

Japanese Love 2.0, Plus Theresa’s Power Uterus and Linda’s Accidental Rape

News of the Weird / Pro Edition
August 3, 2009 (news from July 25-Aug 1)

This Is Not a Stephen Glass Story
A New York Times Magazine writer spent some time in Japan with a live-chick repellant named "Nisan," 37, accompanying him on a "date" with his new girl, "part of a thriving subculture [called otaku] of men and women in Japan who indulge in real relationships with imaginary characters." "The less extreme might have a hidden collection of figurines based on anime characters that they go on 'dates' with during off hours. A more serious 2-D [obsessed with two-dimensionals] lover, like Nisan, actually believes that a lumpy pillow with a drawing of a prepubescent anime character on it is his girlfriend." "He takes her out on the weekends to sing karaoke." One of the more wistful 2-D's admitted he wanted to get married to a 3-D, "but look at me. How can someone who carries this [gal] around get married? People are probably wondering what psychiatric ward I escaped from. I would think the same thing if I saw me." OK, so . . is there a defense to all this? Try this out: "If, as some researchers suggest, romantic love can be broken down into electrical impulses in the brain, then why not train the mind to simulate those signals while looking at an inanimate character?" New York Times Magazine [URL carries a dateline of 7-21-09, but it appeared in print 7-26-09]

Next to Nisan, Jerry Lowery Is Normal
Jerry's obsession is . . eyewear. He was arrested in Milwaukee on three counts of armed robbery of designer eyeglass frames and is a recidivist. He said he's had this "problem" for 15 yrs. Typically, he said, he ogles himself in the mirror when he gets home and decides which frames to keep or trash or give to his friends. Journal Sentinel

Things You Never Thought Would Happen
(1) "Multiple [Connecticut] law enforcement agencies" busted a gambling ring based on fighting songbirds (canaries, saffron finches). (2) An outfit in Brazil has supposedly created an anatomically correct "love doll" (i.e., it has an aperture) . . for dogs. CNN ///

The Crown Vs. Theresa Winters's Uterus
The 36-yr-old in Luton, England, has had 13 kids and has done a bad job raising them, according to the Luton gov't, which has spent "millions" of £ in assistance. One died, one is blind, one has cerebral palsy, and three have something called Pheo Syndrome. She and her fellow-welfare-sucking boyfriend Toney, 36 (who would "love" to go to work, he said, but only for "the right reasons"), are mad that social workers have taken all her kids away, and now she vows to keep having babies until she gets to keep one.

Rhino Drill at Japanese Zoo

I'm not sure this training exercise is really effective for a rhino on the rampage, but you have to admire the Japanese for practicing "just in case" a rhino gets loose.

The best news? Everyone gets paid. I love training -- especially when I get paid.
