    @Alan

    That story is from 2009. I think the reason it's circulating now is fairly obvious.

    Serpent-handling pastor dies from rattlesnake bite

    I think this one qualifies for a Darwin Award. the only problem is...
    The son of a serpent handler who had himself died in 1983 after being bitten, Wolford was trying to keep the practice alive,

    It doesn't prevent them from reproducing and producing an offspring apparently as stupid as they are.

    @RenThing - You know, I think dorkmuffin was right, it's this mephedrone stuff. It's sending people batshit. I had to drop a guy from my band a couple of years ago, a really nice, gentle guy, because he'd gotten off his tits on what he thought was acid and become violent toward a woman who refused his advances. Neither of the girls in the band wanted to be around him after that, understandably, so I had to drop him. He's never done anything remotely like it in the 2 years since and remains both mortified and mystified by the night that left him covered in blood and howling like a dog in a nearby carpark. We're pretty sure it was this cathinone/mephedrone/bath salts stuff because there were rumours that it was around a lot at the time. He didn't actually reach the disembowelment/dismemberment/cannibalism stage but there was some broken bottle action on himself I believe.

    It's basically a cure... for not being a homicidal axe-wielding maniac. The potential market's enormous!

    Quite possibly the single greatest possible use of that quote ever. Congratulations! :-)

    @Kosmopolit

    I like how they are using science to stop science. Is it one of those 'justifiable evil' things or are they just so fucking stupid they don't realize how dumb their actions are

    Whoa, just read that post from @Alan Tyson about how we're running out of bandwidth in the air. It's so bizarre.

    And as usual, network television execs are the worst.

    A Much-Needed Reality Check About the Luka Rocco Dismemberment-Murder-Kitten Case:

    1. Luka is neither a porn "star," NOR a porn actor, NOR a model. He has never made a film or a professional video in any capacity.

    He aspired these things, but he was never employed by, or worked with, any movie company-- his efforts in front of his own camera are the only evidence of his moving image in public.

    Luka paid pro photographers to take head shots; he published his own videos and stills on the his own web sites.

    The only videos anyone has seen of him (so far) are of sadistic animal and human murder, not "sex scenes" as one would describe a in an erotic movie.

    2. Luka was a prostitute, albeit an unsuccessful one. He was starving, literally.

    3. To call this man "gay," or "bi," suggests some kind of consummated adult sexual life with other people.

    But that doesn't seem to be the case. The rare "customers," and even rarer people he dated, report that Luka didn't have sex with them, and was seemingly paralyzed or too catatonic to do anything sexual in bed.

    To his short-lived friends, he reported traumatic incest with his mother, and mental illness. Everyone who met him casually noticed he was disturbed.

    He is alienated from his family and it seems that the one man who knew him slightly, he killed.

    I don't know any word for this except "extremely dangerous and damaged adult, history of severe childhood abuse."

    3. Investigators and magistrates are talking about inate evil, about a man lacking "a moral gene," and "serial killer DNA."

    But there is no proof, not remotely, of any of these things. There never has been. That's like saying the devil made him do it.

    4. There is no evidence Luka knew Karla Homolka, let alone dated her. The Montreal police have taken back that first reckless statement. His celebrity obsessions were entirely of his own imagination.

    Aside from the shock of this case, and the tragedy, I know that gay and bisexual people, and sex workers and erotic actors/models, EVERYWHERE, are cringing.

    So are mental health pros and seasoned reporters, the few that are left.

    We are all hoping that the sensation of these murders will not be exploited by political opportunists and the con-artists of the right. So far, not so good.

    North Carolina is deluded about the rising sea-level, considers making it illegal to predict future sea-level with methods that "include scenarios of accelerated sea-level rise."

    @ Celan

    Unfortunately, it's a fake. There's several other articles, all of which were "reported by “Trailer” Parkman of Farce the Music. Find more satirical articles in the Fake News archive."

    Back to the cyber cold war, and it seems the US and Israeli governments really were behind Stuxnet.

    I find this stuff endlessly fascinating, but I get the feeling I'm probably the only one.
