Wait until you hear about this republican!

Naked Carjacking!

Running Out of Rope…

It appears that one of the drugs used in the “cocktail” administered for lethal injection in many states is in short supply. So short in fact, executions may have to be delayed! There seems to be some question as to whether the company which makes the drug is just refusing to produce it, as it’s primary use anymore is lethal injection – or if there is a real shortage of raw materials to make the drug.

If it is the company intentionally not producing the drug… I can certainly understand the ethical and moral issues involved in creating a drug to save lives…

Only to see it’s principal use wind up to be taking lives.

Drug Shortage Puts Executions on Hold

Executions by lethal injection have been put on hold in several states because of a shortage of a key ingredient for the killer shot. Sodium thiopental—generally used to render the condemned unconscious before other drugs are injected, although Ohio and Washington use it to kill—is in short supply across the country, the AP reports. California plans to suspend executions after using the last of its supply for an execution later this week, and Kentucky’s governor has delayed signing death warrants.

The drug’s only US manufacturer, Hospira, blames the shortage on issues with the supply of raw materials and says new batches won’t be ready until January at the earliest. At least one death penalty expert, however, is skeptical of the explanation, noting that the firm objects to its products being used for executions. The company “provides these products because they improve or save lives and markets them solely for use as indicated on the product labeling,” a Hospira exec wrote in a letter to Ohio authorities earlier this year.

Meter Maid Tickets Dead Man!

Do you think when the guy didn’t jump out of the car to protest the ticket…

That might have been a hint?

Buddy, you been laying there for waaaay to long!

Dead Man in Driver’s Seat Gets Parking Ticket

Nicholas Rappold was parked illegally on a New York street, so a traffic agent issued him a parking ticket. Only one problem: Rappold was dead in his car at the time. The officer apparently couldn’t see Rappold through the “heavily tinted windows,” a police source tells the New York Daily News, but family members are still upset: “It’s really messed up,” says his cousin. “While he was dead in his car, a New York City traffic agent gave him a ticket.”

Rappold had been at a friend’s house and left in the middle of the night. Early Tuesday morning, the traffic agent issued a citation because his Jeep Cherokee was illegally parked during street sweeping. No one realized he was dead for another hour, when his friend saw the vehicle outside and went to see why Rappold hadn’t left yet. No official cause of death is known, but investigators believe Rappold, who did a stint in rehab for pill abuse, overdosed. Not surprisingly, the parking summons was voided.

Notorious Yogi-X Crew Drug Gang!

The Notorious Yogi-X has been in trouble with the law before. After being thrown out of New Jersey last year, he apparently immigrated to Canada, where he has formed a gang and taken over a Drug operation!

Why can’t it be a brown bear, or a Grizzly – why does it have to be a black bear?

An RCMP officer poses with two of the bears found at a marijuana grow-op in southeastern B.C.

Bears guarded B.C. grow-op: RCMP

Police in southeastern B.C. have raided a marijuana grow operation that was apparently guarded by black bears.

Officers conducting the raid two weeks ago at Christina Lake found a property with two residential buildings and a fenced-off grow-op with about 1,000 plants, police said Tuesday.

But they also found about 10 bears that the owner appeared to be using to keep people from stealing any pot plants, said RCMP Sgt. Fred Mansveld.

“[Officers] soon noticed the bears were docile and tame,” Mansveld told CBC News. “One of them jumped on our unmarked car for a while. But it soon became apparent they were habituated to the grow operation.”

It was evident the animals had lived on the property for some time, police said.

The woman accused of running the grow-op has been feeding the bears for years, one neighbour said.

Police are recommending that the woman face charges related to marijuana cultivation.

Conservation officers now have to decide what to do about the bears, which might have to be destroyed because they have become too used to human food and contact, police said.

Christina Lake is about 350 kilometres east of Vancouver.

No Calls on That Dating Site? Maybe You Need a New Camera! (And Phone!)

As a former professional photographer, one of the things you struggled with in fashion photography back in the days of film…

Is the camera never lies.

As I’ve pointed out before, in the digital world, that is just not true anymore.

Study: Certain Cameras Make You Ugly, Certain Phones Make You Sexy

It’s been said the camera adds ten pounds, but what type of camera you use could make the difference between a beautiful self-portrait and a hideous one.

Research conducted by the dating website OKCupid.com found cameras manufactured by Panasonic, Canon and Sony led to more attractive photos compared to cameras manufactured by Nikon, Samsung and Kodak.

The camera most frequently used by people with attractive photos on the OKCupid.com dating website was the Panasonic Micro 4/3s, followed by the Leica Point ‘n Shoot and the Canon dSLR line of cameras.

The camera used in connection with low-rated photos included the Kodak EasyShare, the Nikon Coolpix point-and-shoot cameras and Motorola dSLR cameras.

The report says cameras with interchangeable lenses, like digital SLR cameras, generally made the difference between an attractive and an unattractive photo. Cameraphones generally produced less-than-attractive photos according to user ranks.

Among smartphones, cameras found inside the T-Mobile Sidekick, the Apple iPhone and the Sony Ericsson phone rated high among attractiveness of photos, while Palm Pre phones, Samsung Phones, Android phones and Blackberry phones rated low.

Though smartphones may take unattractive photos, the phones themselves generally make people look more attractive in terms of social status. The same study found users of the Apple iPhone had anywhere between 10 and 12 sexual partners by age 30, while users of the Blackberry phone had an average of 8 sexual partners. Android phone users had the lowest amount based on the survey with six sexual partners.

Attack of the Radioactive Swine! German Hogzilla!

Fans of the 50’s and 60’s American and Japanese Horror movies will remember the radioactive monsters such as Godzilla and Mothra wreaking havoc across the movie screen.

Mothra vs. Godzilla

Well…. It seems that Germany has been invaded…

By radioactive pigs.

That’s right… Radioactive Pigs.

HOGZILLA!

Radioactive Boar on the Rise in Germany

It’s no secret that Germany has a wild boar problem. Stories of marauding pigs hit the headlines with startling regularity: Ten days ago, a wild boar attacked a wheelchair-bound man in a park in Berlin; in early July, a pack of almost two dozen of the animals repeatedly marched into the eastern German town of Eisenach, frightening residents and keeping police busy; and on Friday morning, a German highway was closed for hours after 10 wild boar broke through a fence and waltzed onto the road.
Even worse, though, almost a quarter century after the Chernobyl nuclear meltdown in Ukraine, a good chunk of Germany’s wild boar population remains slightly radioactive — and the phenomenon has been costing the German government an increasing amount of money in recent years. Continue reading

Nature’s Latest Creation – the Zedonk

This week, the Chestatee Wildlife Preserve in north Georgia, United States, welcomed the first zebra-donkey hybrid in America. The “zedonk” has a donkey for a mother and a zebra stallion for a father and it is quite a rare animal.

// <![CDATA[//

The animal is a mix between a zebra and donkey. With black stripes prominently displayed on her legs and face, her zebra heritage is readily apparent, but her slender face and spindly legs are more donkey-like.

Preserve keepers were rather surprised when the new “baby” was born. But contrary to what people might think, this is not the first time this has happened in the world. Apparently in 2005, a zebra gave birth to a zedonk in Barbados, and three zedonks were born in a European zoo, back in the 1970s, from a female donkey.

White tigers are more of our calling card, but this is one of the most unique animals that has ever been born here,” C.W. Wathen, the preserve’s general manager and founder said. “The animals have been running (in the fields) together for more than 40 years, but this is the first time that this has happened here. We never suspected that they (had mated), so it was quite a surprise when the zedonk was born.”
