    He reportedly cut off his testicles, wrapped them in a newspaper, and left them in a front yard.
    Maybe he was going to leave them on a neighbour's doorsetep & set them on fire but he got sidetracked before he could fully execute his plan (possibly by massive blood loss)

    日本語 Japanese man to sue ex-boss over having his head dunked in hot pot at year-end party, causing severe burns

    JAPAN TIMES -- NOV 23 A man who suffered severe burns after having his head shoved into a pot of boiling liquid at a year-end party in 2015 said Thursday that he plans to sue his former boss over the incident. The 23-year-old man, who declined to be named, and his lawyer told a news conference that he will file a criminal complaint with police for assault by the president of the entertainment agency he used to work for and file suit at the Tokyo District Court. The president of the agency was not named, but the agency was identified by an informed source to be MELM, based in Tokyo's Shibuya Ward.

    The case came to light after a video of the incident was made available recently to the weekly magazine Shukan Shincho, which posted it on its website. It has since gone viral on YouTube.

    The video shows the man having his head pushed and held down twice in a boiling shabu shabu hot pot dish during the party on Dec. 20, 2015, leaving him with burns that required about a month to heal.

    Jason Wieder, 39, and Melanie Rehrig, 33, Accused of Animal Cruelty

    https://www.mcall.com/news/breaking/...121-story.html

    Authorities filed hundreds of animal cruelty and neglect charges in Montgomery County against a couple who kept at least 240 animals in an Upper Hanover Township home.

    Authorities on Oct. 18 went to a home on the 1100 block of Station Road where they found several dead animals, as well as more than 100 snakes, several alligators, five tortoises, two skunks, at least a dozen ferrets and at least half a dozen guinea pigs. The animals were found in various stages of neglect, authorities said at the time.

    Montgomery County authorities rescue 240 animals, including tortoises; conditions in home 'deplorable'
    Jason Wieder, 39, and Melanie Rehrig, 33, will each face five felony counts of aggravated cruelty to animals causing death or serious bodily injury. They also face several misdemeanor charges, including nine counts of cruelty to animals, nine counts of animal neglect for failing to provide shelter or protection, nine counts of animal neglect for failing to provide sustenance or water and five counts of animal neglect for failing to provide veterinary care, as well as two counts of violating a rule, regulation or permit, according to court records.

    Authorities also filed 774 summary citations against the couple for animal cruelty and neglect and one citation for fishing without a license. The charges were filed in Montgomery County on Monday, according to court records.


    Wieder and Rehrig are also facing a slew of criminal charges in Lehigh County after authorities found 81 living and five dead animals in a Macungie home. There, authorities rescued 37 birds, 31 snakes, four rabbits, four frogs, two pigs and three dogs. A turtle, two lizards and two snakes died, according to court records. The couple told authorities the animals were their pets.

    Wieder and Rehrig are scheduled to be arraigned Nov. 26 on the Montgomery County charges. The attorney listed on their Lehigh County court files didn’t return a request for comment Wednesday.

    This isn’t the first time Wieder has been accused of running afoul of animal cruelty laws.

    He pleaded guilty to 12 counts of animal cruelty after a September 2014 raid by the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, according to Morning Call archives. He had to pay more than $10,000 in fines and court costs, and $9,157 to the Pennsylvania SPCA for the care of dozens of birds and animals seized from the property, in addition to a $50 fine for each of the animal cruelty offenses.

    Fucking twats They should consider changing their name to the Ballybrack Baudelaire FC after their fake death incident



    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-11-...poned/10561388

    Irish amateur football club fakes player's death to get game called off
    Updated about 3 hours ago


    PHOTO: Ballybrack FC claimed one of its players had died in a car crash to get a match postponed. (Facebook: Ballybrack FC)

    An Irish amateur football team has issued an apology for a "grave and unacceptable mistake" after it falsely reported that one of its players had died last week.

    Key points:

    News of player's supposed demise saw teams hold minute's silences, don black armbands

    Leinster Seniors League has since confirmed player is not in fact dead, but back in his native Spain

    League chairman unsure on what punishment will be meted out as "we've never had anything like this before"

    Ballybrack FC was due to play Arklow Town in the Leinster Senior League, but the match was postponed after Ballybrack reported one of its players, Spaniard Fernando Nuno la Fuente, had died in a car crash.

    The news saw all teams in the league hold a minute's silence before the start of their matches with players donning black armbands.

    The league and some clubs even tweeted condolences to the player and his family.

    Rush Athletic Senior
    @RushAthleticFc
    Condolences to everyone involved at Ballybrack FC on the tragic passing of their player making his way home from training on Thursday night. All at Rush Athletic express our deepest sympathies.

    4:21 AM - Nov 25, 2018

    But the league has since confirmed that it learned the player was not dead, and was back in his native Spain.

    League chairman David Moran called the club's announcement a "disgrace", saying it had brought the "whole league into disrepute".

    "We were informed on Friday morning that a young lad had passed away. So, yesterday we asked the secretary for the league to find out when the funeral was or what was happening so we could send a representative of the league and make sure the family was alright for a few bob," he said.

    "We got a call back saying that his body had been sent back to Spain and that's when the alarm bells rang. I was saying 'what do you mean?'. They wouldn't have been able to do an autopsy or whatever in that time.

    "We started investigating it yesterday and then I got a call saying that he had just left to go home to Spain. I'm delighted the young lad's alive but I'm absolutely dumbfounded by what's going on."

    Moran said there would be an investigation into Ballybrack.

    'We've never had anything like this before'



    PHOTO: Liffey Wanderers players hold a minute's silence following Ballybrack's announcement. (Facebook: Liffey Wanderers FC)

    Ballybrack has offered its sincere apologies to the league and opponents Arklow Town FC, saying the person behind the announcement was experiencing "severe personal difficulties".

    "The club has contacted Fernando to confirm his whereabouts, wellbeing and are thankful for his acceptance of our apology on this matter," the statement said.

    "This grave and unacceptable mistake was completely out of character and was made by a person who has been experiencing severe personal difficulties unbeknownst to any other members of the club.

    "The club will continue to provide a duty of care to all parties and offer the support that may be needed at this time. This person had previously contributed greatly to the senior team within the club in recent years and to the wider footballing community across Dublin for decades."

    The Leinster Senior League said it was glad to hear the player was in good health and had returned to Spain, also apologising for any distress caused as a result of notifying its clubs of the death of the player.

    League chairman Moran said he would have to figure out exactly what punishments are meted out.

    "We'll meet on Thursday," he told the Irish Times.

    "One of the first things we'll have to do is figure out what rules they broke. We've never had anything like this before."


    Edit : I'll amend my comment to a singular "fucking twat" if it turns out all but one person genuinely thought he died.

    Crunchy mum's strike again. I guess she decided to return the forceps to nature too

    https://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/police...park-1.4195974

    Police call off search after placenta, forceps found in park


    MISSISSAUGA, Ont. -- Police have called off a large-scale search for a woman they believed had given birth in a park in Mississauga, Ont., after discovering she had dumped her year-old afterbirth in the area.

    Const. Sarah Patten says the woman gave birth a year ago at home in Brantford, Ont., and kept the afterbirth for "holistic purposes."

    She says the woman then decided to return the afterbirth to nature, which led her to the Sugar Maple Woods Park on Nov. 22.



    Sugar Maple Woods Park


    A police presence is visible at Sugar Maple Woods Park in Mississauga, Ont., on Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2018.

    A man walking his dog came across blood, forceps and other evidence of childbirth on Tuesday, which kicked off a search for a woman and a child who police believed needed medical attention.

    Patten says the incident is not suspicious and police have closed their investigation.

    She says there are health and safety issues related to dumping bodily fluids in public and urged against it.

    "We recommend not disposing afterbirth in public parks or areas exactly where animals are walking or anyone could pick this up or even misunderstand why it's there," Patten said. "It can definitely be misunderstood that someone was hurt, then police became involved and there were a lot of resources being utilized unnecessarily."e

    If I came across a placenta while I was hiking I would probably need medical attention.

    I can't decide if I'd be more disturbed finding one hiking, or finding one in Tupperware in someone's fridge

    A kid could mistake that shit for port wine jelly (which might be jello in the U.S, making my comment very confusing for some people - so for clarification, the wobbly kind, not the spreadable kind)

    I was wondering if it was just an Australian thing. It's an old Aeroplane jelly flavour that was used in trifles - & sometimes still is if you have the kind of grandma or aged aunt who brings a dish to family gatherings. It doesn't really taste like Port, but it's definitely got a nicer, deeper colour than most jelly




    The lack of specific flavour doesn't matter once a box of that shit falls into the hands of an Australian grandma, because when they turn it into trifle they usually absolutely drown the shit in sherry or some other kind of alcohol. Which is probably why trifle's gone out of favour now that it's no longer acceptable to have drunk kids staggering around at family gatherings. Up until the 70/80s adults seemed to act like it didn't count as alcohol consumption as long as the kids got wasted eating dessert vs sneaking grog out of the adult's drinks



    Hmm. Maybe all along it's been trifle that was to blame for Australia's infamous drinking culture


    Also, when I say it was an old kind of jelly, I mean ollllllllllld (don't have your volume up too high for this one, the child has a voice like nails on a blackboard. I usually kinda like the gramophone effect, but the Aeroplane jelly girl is definitely an exception)

    My grandma was very against drinking due to most males of my family until my dads generation all died fairly young due to alcohol consumption, or accidents involving alcohol, or from shady dealings with fellow unsavory Irish gentleman during prohibition. She also was not one who did much cooking ever as far back as I can remember. Except for killer sunny-side up eggs lol

    Now you mention it, it's weird my Nan was so big on trifle & alcohol-soaked puddings since she left my grandfather in the 40s because of drinking-related violence - lots of crazy stories but I'd best save them for the premie threads

    If Mothers Day 2019 hasn't already been cancelled in this house, it should be.

    She pushes her daughter in for a "joke", poses for pix while she's trapped in icy cold mud, then she posts about it on fb as well

    Coastguards rescue woman waist deep from in mud after she was reportedly 'pushed in' by her mother

    She was later checked over by paramedics

    A woman reportedly 'pushed into the mud' was rescued by coastguard teams after she got stuck waist deep in mud.

    At approximately 4.13pm on Friday evening (November 30), Weston-super-Mare Coastguard and Burnham Coastguard and beach rangers were called to a person in the mud off the bank of River Axe at Uphill.


    The crews had to use specialist kit to pull her out of the sinking mud. She was later handed over to paramedics after the rescue.

    Bristol Live reports the woman's mother thanked the crews for their work on a Facebook post.


    The status revealed the pair had been walking along the riverbank and daughter wanted to know if she could get buried in sinking mud.

    The mother reportedly pushed her in as a joke.


    She thanked the coastguard crews for rescuing her daughter (Image: Facebook)

    A statement from Weston-super-Mare Coastguards reads: "We carry specialist kit, and train regularly, to enable a quick and safe extraction and use large floating stretchers as a stable working platform.

    "Once the casualty was safely back on terra firma they were handed over to the waiting ambulance to be checked over.

    "One of the joys of a full on mud rescue is the cleaning of the kit afterwards.

    "This can take 2 to 3 hours so once we were done we felt we had more than earned our Tetley UK and McVitie's."

    Vicious, blood-spitting alpaca attack had WA women fearing for their lives before being saved by police
    ABC Great Southern By Ellie Honeybone

    Posted 38 minutes ago



    PHOTO: Karen Stroebel ended up in hospital for weeks after being trampled and attacked by her alpaca. (ABC Great Southern: Andrew Collins )

    Karen Stroebel thought her partner had found the perfect pet for their Western Australian hobby farm ? a tall, dark and handsome alpaca named Harry.

    But beneath his furry exterior, Harry was concealing a near-uncontrollable rage.

    He had only been living at his new home in Mount Barker for just over a week when he snapped, trampling Karen into the ground and almost causing her mother to suffer a heart attack.

    The women feared for their lives, and it was only the quick actions of a neighbour and two local policeman that saved them from the aggressive animal.

    Dirty Harry

    Karen Stroebel's partner acquired the alpaca from a workmate and brought him home to their small property.


    PHOTO: Harry the angry alpaca, pictured before his attack. (Supplied)


    The animal showed his true colours almost immediately, attacking Ms Stroebel on the day of his arrival.

    "Because he looked so beautiful, we thought that spitting at us was part of his love for us," Ms Stroebel said.

    "After I had welcomed him from the horse float, he was in the paddock and I was just leaving to walk to the gate.

    "He came up behind me and bit me on the back.

    "Luckily I had a loose shirt on and he just grabbed my shirt."

    Ms Stroebel turned towards the animal who then bit her a second time on the arm, causing her to fall.

    "At that time my partner had a beer in his hand and was beating him over the head with the beer bottle and I was able to get up," she said.

    A sign of things to come

    Ten days later, Ms Stroebel's 78-year-old mother, Pat, was visiting the property and the two women were working in the garden.

    Harry was 20 metres away in the paddock when he suddenly reared up and jumped over the fence.

    Ms Stroebel tried to guide him back towards the gate when things escalated.

    "As soon as he got to the gate, he just reared up and smashed me into the ground very violently," Ms Stroebel said.

    "He bit me on both my arms and after I instinctively turned over, he bit me on the back of the neck and started to trample me.

    "He trampled my shoulder with his hoof and at this point my mum was beating him with a broom.

    "She got him away and told me to run."

    The two women managed to get away from the angry alpaca momentarily, but then he bailed them up in a corner against the house.

    Alpaca warfare

    Harry had the humans trapped and continued to rage and rear.

    Terrified and running on adrenalin, Ms Stroebel and her mother began trying to beat him away with a broom and rake.

    "We really started hitting him and pushing him back. He would retreat again for a while but then come at us again," she said.

    "This went on for about an hour and a half, and at this stage he was bleeding out of his nose.

    "I said to mum 'oh no, poor Harry' and I was really concerned that Harry was bleeding out of his nose.

    "Mum was sort of looking at me like 'stuff poor Harry, we're just about to get killed here'."


    PHOTO: Harry bailed the two Stroebel women up under this verandah. (ABC Great Southern: Ellie Honeybone)
    For a time, Ms Stroebel hoped Harry would let up and back away.

    "But then it was just clearly warfare," she said.

    "He was spitting blood and everything at us and rearing up at the same time.

    "His eyes looked totally demented, like his eyes were totally mad."

    A last resort

    Pat Stroebel lives with a heart condition, so when her face began to lose its colour Ms Stroebel knew they were in mortal danger.

    "She just went pale, leant forward, dropped the shovel and fell, and that's when I started screaming hysterically because I was just so worried that mum was going to die," Ms Stroebel said.

    "So we just screamed and screamed and screamed."

    Luckily those screams were heard by a concerned neighbour on the other side of a major highway who called the police.


    PHOTO: Sergeant Seaton and Pat Stroebel at the farm in Mount Barker. (ABC Great Southern: Ellie Honeybone )
    Sergeant Laurie Seaton was one of two officers who attended the scene.

    "As we drove past the house I looked out and could see this large alpaca and two ladies holding shovels above their heads," Sergeant Seaton said.

    "I thought 'you don't see that every day.'

    "As I jumped out of the car and came around the verandah, the alpaca turned his attention off the ladies and came straight at me."

    Sergeant Seaton said while he had not dealt with many alpacas before, Harry was certainly one of the biggest he had ever seen.

    The policemen eventually managed to frogmarch the alpaca back into the paddock, much to the relief of the Stroebel ladies.

    Long term injuries

    It was October 22 when Harry attacked, but Karen Stroebel is only due to leave hospital this week.

    She suffered damage to the nerves in her spine and bulged discs from when the alpaca first threw her 1.57-metre frame to the ground, and remains under heavy medication while she heals.

    Her mother, Pat, suffered a gash to the head but has made a full recovery, with her heart rate back under control.

    Harry returned to the farm where he came from but continued to display aggressive behaviour, attacking other alpacas.

    In the end, the decision was made to euthanise him.

    "We believe he was just a rogue alpaca," Ms Stroebel said.

    "We wouldn't have survived without the police ? we wouldn't have been able to keep fighting."


    PHOTO: Alpacas are usually considered gentle creatures. (ABC News: Rebecca Carmody )


    Entire males not the best pet option

    Mahlon Hotker runs an alpaca stud in Albany and has been working with the breed for 16 years.

    He said while they were normally fairly gentle animals, aggression was not unheard of.

    "You hear of the odd occasion but it's very rare and in all instances, it's been an entire [not castrated] male," he said.

    "Herd males need to be aggressive and entire males are definitely not for pets."

    Harry the handsome alpaca was an entire male, and Pat Stroebel acknowledged that he was not the right fit for the small hobby farm.

    "Not all animals are like this, but if there is a rogue then its dangerous," she said.

    "I think it's important that people know the animal [they are caring for] and that is has been castrated and that it's friendly."

    I'd be just a little pissed off with that work mate who got them to rehouse their unwanted "pet"



    Actually, I just thought of an article I linked a few months ago in one of the horse sex threads

    Maybe Harry had a reason for being an angry alpaca

    In an affidavit tendered to the court, Acting Sergeant Nathan Trueman from Strike Force Raptor said police received information in April 2014 "that the Gypsy Jokers had stolen an alpaca and were having sexual intercourse with it".

    Two months later, police raided the clubhouse to search for the alpaca, named Cleo, and seized the animal from a paddock behind the "fortified" property. The raid also allegedly uncovered loaded guns, ammunition and drugs.


    Cleo the alpaca was found at the gang's headquarters in a police raid.

    Actually, I just thought of an article I linked a few months ago in one of the horse sex threads

    A foot fetish assault under investigation.



    FERNDALE, Mich. (WXYZ) - A man who allegedly tricked a woman into taking off her shoes to satisfy his foot fetish was charged with assault and battery by the Oakland County Prosecutor's Office Thursday.

    According to a police report, Brandon Jackson, 22, of Redford, was sitting at a local Ferndale business on Thursday, Dec. 6, when he allegedly told an employee that a bug had crawled into her boot.

    The 48-year-old woman went to a private area to check her boots for bugs but found none. When she returned, she says Jackson insisted a bug had crawled into her boot. He then, without her permission, removed her boots and touched her feet.

    Police say the victim was uncomfortable with the suspect's "irregular behavior," so she reviewed video surveillance footage of the interaction.

    After reviewing the footage, the woman found that Jackson had been filming their interaction with his cell phone. The woman then contacted Ferndale police.

    Detectives contacted Jackson and obtained a search warrant to view the contents of his cell phone. They found that there were numerous photographs of women's feet, taken without their knowledge. There were also dozens of videos of him telling different women that bugs were crawling into their shoes.

    Jackson was later charged with assault and battery and was arraigned Thursday and his personal bond was set at $1,500. Jackson's next court date is Thursday, Dec. 27.

    Man coughs up 15cm-wide blood clot in shape of right bronchial tree
    Updated about an hour ago

    A blood clot, in the shape of the right bronchial tree, coughed up by a 36-year-old man.

    A man has stunned doctors by coughing up a 15-centimetre-wide blood clot from his lungs in the near-perfect shape of his right bronchial tree.

    Key points:

    Doctors treating the 36-year-old man were "astonished" when he coughed up the clot

    The clot could have stayed intact due to a higher than usual concentration of a particular protein, which could have made the blood in his airways unusually rubbery
    They said it was possible the man was able to cough it up because of its size, rather than despite it
    The mysterious, cherry-red cast resembled a piece of coral, and an image of it has gone viral after appearing in The New England Journal of Medicine.

    It came from a 36-year-old man with end-stage heart failure who spat out the medical anomaly in one piece during an extreme bout of coughing in hospital.

    The doctors treating the patient were "astonished" after they unfurled the clot to find it had retained the shape of the lung pathway from which it came.

    Despite the best efforts of intensive care staff at the University of California San Francisco Medical Centre, the man died a week later.

    "We were astonished," pulmonary surgeon Georg Wieselthaler told The Atlantic.

    "It's a curiosity you can't imagine ? I mean, this is very, very, very rare."

    The image of the clot has been widely shared because of how simultaneously grotesque and fascinating it is, with mixed reactions.

    The patient, who had a history of heart problems, had been placed on oxygen and given blood thinners to help circulate blood and prevent clogging.

    But blood eventually broke into his lungs and after days of coughing up smaller clots, the patient hawked up the famous one.

    Doctors speculated the clot stayed intact due to a higher-than-usual concentration of a particular protein component of blood plasma, caused by the man's infection, which could have made the blood in his airways unusually rubbery.

    They said it was possible the man was able to cough it up because of its size, rather than despite it, The Atlantic reported.

    Seal found with eel stuck up nose baffles researchers
    Updated about an hour ago

    Researchers have been left scratching their heads after a seal was found with an eel stuck up its nose in the north-western Hawaiian Islands.

    Key points:

    The eel may have got stuck while the seal was foraging, or it may have been regurgitated the wrong way

    The NOAA has had to develop guidelines on how to remove the eels

    It said all seals caught in the "slippery situation" had been caught and the eels removed

    An image taken this year of the seal's predicament was shared earlier this week by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), which said it had seen the phenomenon three or four times.

    "In the nearly 40 years that we have been working to monitor and protect endangered Hawaiian monk seals, we have only started seeing 'eels in noses' in the last few years," it said.

    "We don't know if this is just some strange statistical anomaly or if we will see more eels in seals in the future."

    Researchers said the eel may have gotten stuck trying to escape ? Hawaiian monk seals forage by shoving their mouths and noses into coral reef crevasses, under rocks or into sand, looking for prey that like to hide.

    Another option was the seal ? which often throws up food ? swallowed and then regurgitated the eel so it came out the wrong way.

    The NOAA has since developed guidelines on how to remove the eels, after researchers first spotted one stuck in 2016.

    "They get stuck in there really snug, so you have to restrain the seal and give the eel a firm tug to get it out," The Guardian reported the NOAA's lead scientist Charles Littnan as saying.

    "One of them was really far in, so it was like a magician's handkerchief trick ? we just had to keep pulling and pulling."

    The NOAA said all seals since caught in the "slippery situation" had been caught and the eels removed. None of the eels have survived.


    I reckon there's potential for a bestselling children's book here :

    "Seal With An Eel"

    The heartwarming tale of an adorable seal & Mr Eel, the shy friend who lives in his nose"


    Alternatively ...


    "The Seal Who Wanted To Be An Elephant"

    The inspirational tale of a young seal who refused to be defined by the expectations of others, & the special friendship that helped him achieve his dream




    OK, I'll stop now. This is the kind of shit that makes my kids threaten to disown me. They're all doing stuff tonight so MDS is going to have to put up with it instead
