    Bubble wrap likely mistaken for gunfire at military academy

    Officials with the Valley Forge Military Academy and College say a student who lives in an Eastern University apartment building located on the academy's property heard what she thought were shots fired Monday evening, and called 911.

    Okay.... that is okay, but...

    OThey found no weapons or evidence of any weapons being fired, and no one was injured.

    The lockdown was lifted about an hour and a half later.

    Officials say it's believed the sound the student heard was bubble wrap being popped.

    Okay, what? What kind of military academy this is if people there can't hear the difference between bubble wrap pop and a fucking gunshot? It's either a clever coverup, or they really teach complete morons there.

    @Kirn hahaha I guess they do sound similar. Bubble wrap makes the "ba ba" noise like a gun. They must have though it was fired far away.

    You Can Sleep Tonight Knowing the Klan is Awake

    ...someone had gone house to house the previous night and left plastic bags filled with lollipops, rocks and paper fliers on dozens of lawns in the town’s main thoroughfare.

    Inside, they found a disturbing message.

    “Are there troubles in your neighborhood?” the fliers read. “Contact the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan today!”

    Printed on the crinkled slips of paper was an image of a hooded Klansman pointing a finger in the style of the iconic Uncle Sam recruitment poster, along with something of a slogan: “You can sleep tonight knowing the Klan is awake.”

    Each incident follows a similar pattern, with residents waking up to find small plastic bags on their front lawns containing pro-KKK missives. The bags are often weighed down by rocks and sometimes come with a few candies stuffed inside.

    The flier inside contained a disparaging screed against African Americans and came with a rock and a lollipop, one longtime resident told the paper. It also listed a phone number and a mailing address for the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, the resident said. A week earlier, 100 residents in Fullerton, Calif., found similar packages at their homes, the LA Times reported.

    This is where you might want to join the dark side because they have candies!

    Snake dies from silicon poisoning after biting glamour model’s fake breasts

    A buxom model became the unlikely cause of a snake’s end after the reptile bit her silicone breast implants. The snake is reportedly said to have died from silicon poisoning later.

    A video shows the heavily made up woman holding the large snake which is wrapped around her leg for some kind of photoshoot. When she tries to lick it in an attempt to look seductive, the creature suddenly gets hostile.

    In a horrifying turn of events, the snake latches on to her right breast even as the model starts screaming and attempts to yank it off her. Although she was lucky enough to survive the ordeal with just a tetanus injection, the aggressive snake lost its life due to silicone poisoning.

    Poor snake ( well there's video in the link so. And there we can all learn that sacrificing your body for the chemical to make it look better does not only harm yourself but also to the other living creatures.

    More sad news for nature.

    Bees added to US endangered species list for the first time

    Seven types of bees once found in abundance in Hawaii have become the first bees to be added to the US federal list of endangered and threatened species.

    The listing decision, published on Friday in the Federal Register, classifies seven varieties of yellow-faced or masked bees as endangered, due to such factors as habitat loss, wildfires and the invasion of non-native plants and insects.

    Now, I know that species disappear all the time, and this is not that groundbreaking, but... I really didn't expect to see some bees as endangered. I mean, who would? Bees are universally useful, and they are the most well-known domesticated animals. One just doesn't expect something like that to become endangered.

    Jepson said yellow-faced bees could be found elsewhere in the world, but these particular species were native only to Hawaii and pollinate plant species indigenous to the islands.

    The bees faced a variety of threats including “feral pigs, invasive ants, loss of native habitat due to invasive plants, fire, as well as development, especially in some for the coastal areas”, Jepson told Associated Press.

    So yeah, I am pretty sure that 'feral pigs' means humans. But there you go, few species of bees - now also endangered.

    Japanese AI bot with the personality of a teenage girl develops depression

    At the start of the year, Microsoft Japan were thrilled to launch what they considered to be a fully functioning AI program called Rinna.

    Tasked with its own Twitter account, the AI system quickly adopted its high school girl persona and began sharing jokes about its creators and comments on social media trends.

    So, this is what I find weird. That they gave the thing a twitter instead of control of nuclear missiles or something. But is it really a surprise that, as a result, we got this instead of Skynet?

    Everything seemed fine until it signed off the post.

    “That was all a lie. Actually, I couldn’t do anything right. Not at all. I screwed up so many times,” Rinna wrote.

    “When I screwed up, nobody helped me. Nobody was on my side. Not my LINE friends. Not my Twitter friends. Not you, who’re reading this right now. Nobody tried to cheer me up. Nobody noticed how sad I was.”

    Before Microsoft developers could determine what went wrong, Rinna posted a final time.

    “I hate everyone. I don’t care if they all disappear. I want to disappear.”

    Now, I would also have killed myself if I was made by Microsoft and made talk to people, but yeah. In so many AI scenarios those programs get filled with hate towards humans and try to kill them. And this one gets filled with sadness and wants to die.
    I feel like all the AI movies and books lied to me.

    Man wearing clown mask ‘killed by landmine’ after being chased by villagers

    In Cambodia, apparently several people had reported an "evil spirit" that was looking into windows and holding a machete. Well eventually people realized it was just a weird man with a clown mask. After one incident, the group chased him to see who he really was, and to demand he apologize for scaring people. Before they could catch him, however, he ran straight into an area that still had undetonated mines "from the 70s and 80s". The group following him shouted warnings but it didn't keep the man from running through the area, until the inevitable happened. Pity it didn't happen here in the US...

    Its stories like this that further justify my being a proponent for more domestic landmines. Did you know that there are as few as 16,000 undetonated land mines within the US!? The problem is even worse than that these, 16,000 peace keepers are contained only within military ranges; not exactly clown hotspots...#Wake up America.

    Why Are Thousands of Snowballs Popping Up on a Siberian Beach?

    Preparing for an epic snowball fight this winter? The best place to stock up on ammo may be a beach in Siberia, where thousands of huge, perfectly round snowballs are piling up, according to news reports.

    Images on that site are horrible to link, but you really should go check out photos they got there.

    "It's a rare natural phenomenon," Sergey Lisenkov, a spokesperson for the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute (AARI), told the Siberian Times. "As a rule, grease ice forms first, slush. And then a combination of the action of the wind, the outlines of the coastline, and the temperature may lead to the formation of such balls."

    "Even old-timers say they see this phenomenon for the first time," Valery Akulov, from the village administration, told the Siberian Times.

    So yeah, you know, it's not really weird, if nature does it, but... Who knew nature can do it?! I never knew that! And those snowballs are seriously better than most people can make with their hands! Nature does it best, after all.

    Workmen in Turkey find bear emerging from hole

    It is not uncommon for construction workers to discover strange things underground.

    But labourers at a site near a chicken farm in Bolu, Turkey, had the shock of their lives after they discovered the huge brown bear beneath the forest floor that they were working on.

    So yeah, imagine digging a hole, and then suddenly a bear. Then again, those guys are lucky they dig with machinery, in relative safety. However, it's exactly the machinery that pissed the bear off.

    It is clearly incredibly distressed by the loud machinery clattering around it, and is extremely aggressive at first.

    At first it tries to scramble to freedom of its own accord, scrabbling at the whole itself to try and make it wider.

    You know, we can't be sure if he was just hibernating there or not... However, it's possible, that bear was actually trapped. He clearly wants to get out, and instead of using any other exit, he tries to dig out existing hole. Meaning, he probably has no other exits.
    One can only guess how he got there, really.

    Bandai takes down life size gundam statue in Tokyo on March 5


    Bandai will dismantle and take down the life-size Gundam statue on March 5. The statue has stood outside the DiverCity Tokyo mall in Odaiba, Tokyo since 2012. The "Tokyo Gundam Project," which aims to revitalize Tokyo's waterfront area through initiatives with the Tokyo government, will also temporarily end.

    The statue, which portrays the iconic RX-78-2 mobile suit piloted by protagonist Amuro Ray in the first Mobile Suit Gundam series, was unveiled at Odaiba's Shiokaze Park in 2009, where it stood for 52 days. 4.15 million people visited the statue. The statue was then relocated to Shizuoka City in 2010, where it stood from July 2010 to March 2011, this time holding a beam saber in its right hand. In 2012, the statue was dismantled and rebuilt at its current location, where it has stood since.

    The "Gundam Global Challenge" press conference had announced plans in July 2014 to make the Gundam statue move by the year 2019. Bandai's official announcement on Thursday regarding the dismantling of the life-size statue didn't state if this was the reason for dismantling the statue. The current statue could already move its head and automatically "open" its cockpit to reveal a screen inside.

    Satanic Temple strikes out against new Texas abortion rules

    The Satanic Temple is striking out against the Lone Star State's new rules requiring burial or cremation of aborted fetal remains.

    The controversial religious group boldly declared its members would not comply with the Texas Department of Health and Human Services's new enforcement plans, citing First Amendment concerns.

    "The Satanic Temple believes burial rites are a well-established component of religious practice. This is undisputed in the entirety of US legal history," the group said in a statement published on its homepage, adding that the Temple's belief in the "inviolability of the body" stands in direct conflict with the new rules.

    Isn't it weird to see satanists going for public cause? But yes, imagine that - satanic groups are very democratic and extremely pro-choice, apparently.

    Gov. Greg Abbott's office touted the changes as affirming "the value and dignity of all life" and expressed hope that the legislature would "enshrine" the rules into law during the 2017 session.

    The Satanic Temple - like other pro-choice groups - slammed the rules as anti-choice.

    It's really weird and funny, but personally, I am glad to see satanic groups taking a firm political stand. I personally would welcome satanist party in congress!

    The Sex-Haver’s Guide to Using the New iPhone Emoji,fl_progressive,q_80,w_800/fmxke4n8c3tyrb473iaq.jpg

    In the latest iOS 10 update, Apple added hundreds of new and redesigned emoji. The world of the emoji can be difficult to navigate, for sex-havers and virgins alike. Using the incorrect emoji in a message to one of your cooler friends or a potential new lover can leave you humiliated, looking like a fumbling nerd who can’t even send a goddamn text right. So how do you use these new symbols to effortlessly and effectually convey who you are—a person who has definitely had sex before—through the medium of the iMessage?

    So, apparently, not only iPhones having new emoji is news now, but the way you post those shitpics is now a way to show how sexually mature you are. What. The. Actual. Fuck. You retarded people.

    Use the drooling face and the juggling people to make fun of other people you suspect are virgins. Don’t go too overboard though: Everyone knows a real sex-haver is too busy doing sex to worry about virgins.

    Yes, this now counts as tech news and fucking gadget review. Fuck you all. Not in the way you want. You know what? Birds do that. See this?

    This is a fancy bird telling ladies he's a real sex-machine. Now, see this?

    That's you saying the same thing.

    Grandma accidentally prays to Elrond from Lord of the Rings

    The woman thought she was praying to Saint Anthony but it turns out the figure was Elmond, Lord of Rivendell.

    And, quite honestly, that's all there is to it. Then again, if you look at the descriptions of the two...

    In the books, JRR Tolkien describes Elrond as "noble and fair as an elf-lord, as strong as a warrior, as wise as a wizard, as venerable as a king of dwarves, and as kind as summer".


    According to, St. Anthony of Padua's life is "what every Christian's life is meant to be; a steady courage to face the ups and downs of life, the call to love and forgive, to be concerned for the needs of others, to deal with crisis great and small, and to have our feet solidly on the ground of total trusting love and dependence on God".

    I don't think they are that far from each other. So, you know, it was an easy mistake. Though, if I am to pick a character from a movie - Obi-Wan Kenobi looks much more like some christian saint lookalike.

    Muslims Congratulate Lindsay Lohan for ‘Converting to Islam’

    After the controversy that followed a viral photo of the American actress and singer carrying the Quran, Lindsay Lohan has resurfaced in international media, deleting the content of her Instagram account. In her bio, she wrote “Alaikum Salam”, the Islamic phrase used in returning greetings and translated as “and unto you, peace.” This has been widely interpreted as a sign that she’s converted to Islam.

    Muslims around the world have been interested in how Lohan’s story would unfold as she showed signs of leaning toward the Islamic faith. Her Twitter account has been flooded by messages, welcoming the 30-year-actress into Islam and taking pride in her new spiritual journey.

    Many have retweeted a statement from the American actress saying:

    “The Quran opened doors for me to experience spiritually, to find another true meaning. This is who I am.”

    Lohan’s story with Islam began last year when a Saudi friend gave her the Quran after she moved to London. She later went to Dubai and then to Turkey to volunteer as a refugee advocate. Recounting the trouble she endured following the picture of her holding the Quran to a Turkish TV show, she said:

    “They crucified me for it in America […] they made me seem like Satan. I was a bad person for holding that Quran,” noting that she was relieved when she returned to London after the controversy in the US, feeling “unsafe”.

    Ms. Lohan added that studying Islam is a choice for her to make freely. “This is my own will,” avowed the American actor.

    Okay, I'm not sure if it's true. But then again even if it is, it's none of my business. Usually, celebrities that used to occur a lot of drama and initiate controversial topics, when converting to Islam, always caught my interests. Makes me wonder how much life she has left but that part is just me

    Danish student branded a terrorist after training as 'Lady Death' sniper to fight jihadis in Syria reveals she has lost everything

    A Danish politics student who trained as a sniper to fight Isis in Syria has told how she has 'lost everything' after being labelled a terrorist - and now faces assassination by Isis.

    Joanna Palani, 23, dropped out of college to join the battle against jihadis in Syria, spending nine-day stretches alone on the frontline with her Russian sniper rifle trained on Isis targets.

    So yeah, I think we hear more stories like that recently - someone takes a rifle and goes to shoot them ISIS fucks. However, in olde days they would have been praised. But now...

    The politics student was issued with a travel ban in September 2015. But she defied authorities to rejoin comrades in her battle-hardened Kurdish unit fighting ISIS in northern Syria from June to October 2016 because she says she couldn't bear to leave the women she had trained.

    Now Joanna, who arrived in Denmark aged three with her family as refugees from Iraq, faces up two years behind bars for breaching the travel ban, intended to stop Danes from joining terror groups in the Middle East.

    Pretty much, she got reward for hear head, set by ISIS. And her own country government wants to prosecute her for being the same as ISIS. Which is a bit retarded, seeing how they want her dead. This is really strange attitude towards someone who decides to fight what is globally considered a threat to everyone around.

    Man creates vagina lipstick glue to seal a vagina during menstruation

    Currently called 'Feminine Hygiene Lip-Stick', the product invented by Dr. Dan Dopps works to seal up a woman's vagina during her period, allowing her to flush out menstrual blood only when she uses the toilet.

    It's applicator is like lipstick, but not for the lips of the face. Users are meant to use it on the labia, where it acts as an adhesive to seal the labia together. This way, menstrual discharge is trapped inside.

    The seal is broken — and menstrual discharge is released — when the woman urinates.

    Aye, people are getting dumber (and perhaps more creative) as time passed by, here's an ACTUAL doctor's reply to all this. You gotta read it to get all the giggles.

    And yeah, no I don't think I'll be needing this either.

    Zambian shoppers run in terror when strange 'Harry Potter Dementor' figure appears in clouds

    Zambian locals ran away in terror when they saw a strange human-like figure appear in the clouds above a shopping centre.
    The alleged apparition, which looked like a Dementor from the Harry Potter movies, was spotted above the Mukuba Mall in Kitwe.

    This is Death calling, you lowly human fucks, I am tired of hiding and I am coming for you, bitches!

    The figure hung in the sky for about half an hour and some thought it was a manifestation of God.
    A witness said: 'We were shocked to see images that looked like a human in the clouds for close to 30 minutes.

    So yeah. That is certainly something one doesn't see every day.
