Crazy Fan Wants to Abort Baby in a World Without Michael Jackson
YES, this psycho message is for real. This chick needs a vacation in a rubber room. I hope the men with nets catch her. With her as its mother, this kid would probably be better off if she goes through with the abortion. Weirdo Jackson's sycophant fans are carrying things way too far (such as committing suicide).

Doctor Inhaled Gas to 'Feel High'
A doctor inhaled gas and air while on duty on a children's ward to 'feel floaty', a disciplinary panel has heard.
Dr Jonathan Chahal admitting using the medical anaesthetic Entonox from a gas canister on four separate occasions at Ormskirk District General Hospital.
The senior house officer pediatrician also persuaded four female nurses to inhale the gas which is frequently administered in childbirth to alleviate pain.
On one occasion nursing staff heard the sound of giggling from the department's resuscitation room and found Dr Chahal inhaling the substance, a General Medical Council Fitness to Practise Panel heard.
GMC counsel Craig Sephton QC said: "He asked if they had ever tried it. He said it was fun and made you feel floaty."
Mr Sephton said evidence would be presented which indicated Entonox should only be used in medical situations and its manufacturers advised that people should not use machinery for at least 12 hours after taking it.
"It was clearly inappropriate for him to offer it to colleagues," he said.
Dr Chahal was working at the hospital on June 28 2007 when two nurses noticed a hissing sound from a blue canister behind a desk in the resuscitation room and found the doctor inhaling the gas.
Later on the same shift he was caught again taking Entonox - a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen - after colleagues heard him laughing.

Michael Jackson's former nanny Grace Rwaramba, who worked for the King of Pop for 17 years before being fired recently, tells The Times of London how bad his drug abuse was.
"I had to pump his stomach many times. He always mixed so much of it," she said.
"There was one period that it was so bad that I didn't let the children see him. He always ate too little and mixed too much," Rwaramba added.
At one point, she teamed with Jackson's mother Katherine and sister Janet for an intervention, which angered him.
"We tried to do an intervention. It was me, Janet, his mother. I coordinated it. He was so angry with me," she explained.
Rwaramba is expected to be interviewed by the police as part of the ongoing investigation into Michael's death.

Thomas Sundberg and his dog Rex were walking near the Kramfors-Sollefte airport last week when Sundberg felt the ground give way beneath him.
Seconds later, man and dog found themselves nearly submerged in a hole filled with excrement. Fortunately, both Sundberg and Rex were able to escape from the slimy pool of filth.
"It stunk something fierce, I took off all my clothes off immediately then I called my wife and then ran naked to a nearby river where we jumped in the water to get rid of the worst of the shit. I just threw my clothes away."
The hole was actually a sludge lagoon maintained by Kramfors municipality to store and dry sewage from a number of wells.
Municipality representative Tomas Lundin promised to investigate the matter to determine why the area wasn’t properly marked.

The Anna police came. They found a piece of Styrofoam with a Sonic logo embedded in her windshield, which also had a softball-sized hole in it. They also found part of a shredded drinking straw. The car’s interior was covered with bits of glass and sticky soda.
"It’s not every day that you get a shotgun blast with Coke — it had a phenomenal impact," said Mackey’s husband, David, who photographed the damage.
Diandra Leslie-Pelecky, a professor of physics at the University of Texas at Dallas, looked at the photos and was surprised by the damage. But, she said, the cup, the straw and the liquid are pretty solid evidence.
"I sell the fish at a wholesale price of 24 yuan (£2.15p) per kilo, but 36 yuan (£3.20p) per kilo for retail," he said.
Li built ladders from his kitchen to the river 16 metres below, and each day he has to go down to check the harvest.

Crazed Transgender Cooks His / Her Testicles Before Sex Change
And no, it didn't taste like chicken. They sauteed them lightly in some olive oil; to bring out their own flavor as much as possible. The testes themselves tasted more like sausage; with just a hint of semeny taste; really tender, almost fell apart in your mouth.

Using colorful bras donated by employees at Victoria's Secret, a group of 26 mostly Saudi women completed the first course of its kind to be offered in the kingdom – how to fit, stock and sell underwear.
The training organizers hope will help boost a campaign to lift the ban on women selling underwear in the kingdom.
The graduates held a small ceremony at a college in the western seaport of Jiddah this week, capping 40 hours of instruction during which they learned to overcome their embarrassment at doing bra fittings, deal with customer complaints and display the stock in an appealing manner
"It was a beautiful experience," said Faten Abdo, a 32-year-old coordinator in the offices of a lingerie company.
"The most shocking thing for me was the bra sizes," she added. "We didn't know how to get proper measurements before."
The restrictions are ironic in a country that goes to great lengths to segregate the sexes. Men and women, for instance, who are not close relatives cannot stand in the same line at fast-food outlets or even be in the same car together. Conservative clerics have strong influence on government and society, and they ban anything they believe might lead to women's emancipation, such as driving or voting.
But those pushing for saleswomen in lingerie stores say they were tired of discussing intimate details with male staff and enduring their scrutiny when they ask for a particular cup size.

Fiery-Hot Chilli Grenades To Quell Riots
India's security forces are planning to mix one of the world's hottest chilli powders in hand grenades to control riots and battle insurgents.
Defence scientists said they will replace explosives in small grenades with a certain variety of red chilli to immobilise a person without killing him
The chilli found in the country's north east generates so much heat it was enough to startle a person for a while when used as a weapon, researchers said.
The bhut jolokia chilli is said to generate 1,000,000 heat units on the Scoville scale - a measure of hotness.
It is at least a thousand times more than a common kitchen chilli.
The Scoville scale was named after American scientist Wilbur Scoville, the first to measure the heat component in chillies.
The bhut jolokia will also be used as a food supplement for soldiers deployed in cold weather conditions to raise their body temperatures

Brooke, who lives in Maryland, still has baby teeth, and her bones are those of a 10-year-old. However, her hair and nails grow consistently.
Doctors think Brooke has a genetic mutation that inhibits her growth.
Farrah Fawcett, the actress who shot to worldwide fame thanks to her role in 'Charlie's Angels' and other Hollywood ventures along the way, has passed away after a long battle with cancer. She was 62 years old.
The 'Charlie's Angels' star -- who was diagnosed with anal cancer in 2006 -- had recently been hospitalized again before succumbing to the illness.

Fawcett is survived by O'Neal and their son, Redmond.
Fawcett's career spans several decades. She got her start in the early '70s, scoring a key role in 'Myra Breckinridge' in 1970.

Along with Jaclyn Smith and Kate Jackson, 'Angels' drew a whopping 23 million fans per week.
