Woman swallows cell phone after argument

Now, I know that in Japan, that these phones get smaller just about every year. But over here, when I read that article, I couldn't help but to picture one of those 3-year-old Nokia models. ~Somewhere around a few pounds or so.

Though I do wonder how the rest of that went. Probably the only phone too... Like maybe smacked her around an few times until they could get the nine to work.

- Huh? Who's this? Osama Bin Laden? YOU Sunava - *Whack* Oh... uh, sorry about that.

- 911 emergency services. -Please state the nature of your emergency.

- Did you get that last number?

- ...Sorry?

- *Smacked by lady* Oh, right. My hoe, she needs help!

- Sorry, we can not confirm your location.

- (Phone starts beeping) Right. We're at... (Phone battery dies out)

-Oh shit! Uh,.. (Looks at nearby phone recharging cord.)

*Knock heard at door. Guy opens the door*

- NSA. We would like to ask you an few questions.

- Do you have a phone that I could borrow?

Not an entirely "silly" story, but more of an odd/sad one.

This kitten was born with only one eye and no nose:

Cy, short for Cyclopes, a kitten born with only one eye and no nose, is shown in this photo provided by its owner in Redmond, Oregon, on Wednesday, Dec. 28, 2005. The kitten, a ragdoll breed, which died after living for one day, was one of two in the litter. Its sibling was born normal and healthy. (AP Photo/Traci Allen)
There isn't a story with it...just the photo and that small AP blurb over on Yahoo Photos.

Odd.

Man sues over chatroom humiliation

Heh...I thought this would happen some day.

Man sues over chatroom humiliation
Quote:
An Ohio man who claims that he was humiliated by two other participants in an AOL chatroom has sued the two men for causing emotional distress and the ISP for failing to stop the alleged abuse, according to a report from Law.com.

The case, which is due for a hearing in an Ohio court today, is said to be the first of its kind.

According to Law.com, Medina County resident George Gillespie sued Mike Marlowe of Alabama and Bob Charpentier of Oregon after the two men began teasing him online.

Reports suggest that the teasing then ventured out of the chat room and into the real world, with Marlowe travelling from Alabama to Ohio in order to disrupt Gillespie’s mail service by handing a change-of-address form into a post office.

Other reports suggest that Gillespie was himself indulging in a little “banter” in the chatroom, making fun of Charpentier’s girlfriend, and posting a picture of Charpentier’s home online.

"This guy is just a character, and his BS finally caught up with him," Charpentier told the Akron Beacon Journal. "This lawsuit is just another form of harassment."

"I'm so flabbergasted with this because this has been blown out of proportion," Marlowe told Law.com. "We just made fun of the guy."

Scientists make fluorecent green pigs!

http://www.cnn.com/2006/HEALTH/01/12...eut/index.html
Quote:
TAIPEI, Taiwan (Reuters) -- Taiwan, home to the world's first transgenic glowing fish, has successfully bred fluorescent green pigs that researchers hope will boost the island's stem cell research, a professor said.

By injecting fluorescent green protein into embryonic pigs, a research team at the island's leading National Taiwan University managed to breed three male transgenic pigs, said professor Wu Shinn-Chih of the university's Institute and Department of Animal Science and Technology.

"There are partially fluorescent green pigs elsewhere, but ours are the only ones in the world that are green from inside out. Even their hearts and internal organs are green," Wu said on Thursday.
Professor Wu later reported experiments to engineer a flying pig have met with somewhat less success.

eAnnoyance. How does one say that without looking like an idiot? I can see it now:


"Hello, stupid ugly retarded dumbass. My name is Kyle Jones. I'm going to flame you and tell you my real name so I can insult you straight to your hideous bug-eyed face without getting in trouble with the law. Don't like it? Tough shit, dip-wad. Deal with it, you fat emo bastard!"


The president is taking his internets too seriously (and so is the dude who negged me here for no reason. What if there was a chance I gave the post its own title, huh? Then one of your 10 reg hand-outs would be for naught. But still, he takes it less seriously than Bush).

Don't worry, it'll be overturned.

Sometimes I think politicians just write these laws to clog up the judicial system and waste time and money. They have to know they'll be overturned if they're challanged. But of course then they can whine about "judicial activism"...

Wait, this post could annoy politicians and I'm not using my real name.

It was kinda funny, see kids. This is what happens when you chat with people you dont know online.

Still this cracks me up.
Gross... I bet they're mortified for life!
I'm just glad my mom doesn't know *anything* about computers, so this won't ever happen.

Guess they became real couch potatoes eventually, eh?

I've already read about the "Groper's Brotherhood" some time ago...
But there would be an easily solution to this. It would work like this: they put an announcement in some newspaper (Asahi Shimbun or something) that they search school girls to get groped on a train (for payment of course), I'm sure they would find plenty. They could make an appointment about where they want to do it and then they could grope all they want and leave those in peace who don't want to be groped.
Or, JR could do something on their own: they could do actual "groping wagons", where every school girl who enters it gets 10.000Y for agreeing to be groped, and every man who enters pays 10.000Y for being able to grope. They could make a real killing like this

William Shatner sells kidney stone for charity

Oh my...I admit I like Star Trek as well, but...

William Shatner sells kidney stone for charity
Quote:
The $25,000 raised will be donated to Habitat for Humanity

LOS ANGELES - An online casino has a piece of Capt. Kirk.

Actor William Shatner has sold his kidney stone for $25,000, with the money going to a housing charity, it was announced Tuesday.

Shatner reached agreement Monday to sell the stone to GoldenPalace.com. “This takes organ donors to a new height, to a new low, maybe. How much is a piece of me worth?” he said in a telephone interview.

[...snip...]

The money will go to Habitat for Humanity, which builds houses for the needy. “This would be the first Habitat for Humanity house built out of stone,” joked Darren Julien, president of Los Angeles-based Julien’s Auctions, which handled the sale.

Japan fights invasion of the jumbo jellyfish

Japan fights invasion of the jumbo jellyfish
Quote:
Thousands of invertebrates jam up fishing nets: ‘They're like aliens’


Click me! Click me!

TOKYO - A slimy jellyfish weighing as much as a sumo wrestler has Japan's fishing industry in the grip of its poisonous tentacles.

Vast numbers of Echizen kurage, or Nomura's jellyfish, have appeared around Japan's coast since July, clogging and ripping fishing nets and forcing fishermen to spend hours hacking them apart before bringing home their reduced catches.

Representatives of fishing communities around the country gathered in Tokyo last week, hoping to thrash out solutions to a pest that has spread from the Japan Sea to the Pacific coast.

"It's a terrible problem. They're like aliens," Noriyuki Kani of the fisheries federation in Toyama, northwest of Tokyo, told Reuters.

Japan's Groping Problem
The Gropes of Wrath


In Japan, more than 4000 men are arrested each year for groping on trains. This is about five times the number in 1992.

In 2001, a survey of two private high-schools in Tokyo revealed that more than 70% had been groped on the train.

A recent survey of Japanese companies suggested that at least 17% of Japanese women have been groped.
Police crackdown

The mid-1990s brought a nationwide police crackdown on train gropers. Plain-clothes police officers were assigned to the worst affected trains during rushhour. Advertising campaigns gave advice to women who thought they were being molested: to thrust the offending hand in the air and yell "chikan" (groper).

Unfortunately, this hasn't emboldened many Japanese women. Surrounded by strangers, most women would rather pretend nothing unusual is happening than create a scene. Gropers exploit this, and pick their victims carefully.

Some of the "victims" aren't so innocent, and false accusations of groping are increasing. The shame associated with chikan makes it possible for especially enterprising young women to blackmail fellow train users.

Faced with a hysterically shrieking woman, most men are willing to be led to the nearest ATM and part with large sums of money (US$3000 isn't uncommon).

Women Only Carriages

An obvious solution to the problem is to introduce a "Gropers Only" carriage, and then the randy little tykes might fondle each other to death. Controversially, this was rejected.

Instead, "Women Only" carriages have been introduced at peak times on the most crowded lines. A guard is usually present to enforce this, politely telling any man who fails to read the pink sign to get in a different carriage with all the other perverts.

Generally, this has alleviated the problem, but there has been an unexpected side- effect. Any woman who finds herself outside the rosy sanctum of the “Women Only” car is viewed as fair game. After all, if she didn’t want her intimate parts mauled, she wouldn’t be there!

The behaviour of women in the safe zone has also drawn complaints. Momentarily freed from the rigid sexist expectations of Japanese society, a carriage of OLs can adjust their make-up and prattle away on their phones as much as they like, drawing complaints from other passengers.

The Groper's Brotherhood

Meanwhile, what of the gropers? Who’s thinking about the degenerates? All they ever wanted was to reach out and touch another human being. On the buttocks, or maybe on the breasts. Is that a crime?

Fortunately, help is at hand. You need look no further than Shigeru Oohori: “elite salariman”, loving husband/father, and head of "Chikan Tomo-No-Kai" ("The Groper’s Brotherhood"). He has assembled a 40-strong group of deviants from all walks of life, including teachers, government officials and a Buddhist priest (Buddhism seems to have an ambiguous attitude to molesting strangers in public places). Not just any horny freak can join though: a black belt 5th dan groper is expected to cop 100 sleazy feels a month.

According to Oohori, gropers come in two main categories. "Orthodox" gropers, about 80% of the fondling population, get their kicks from the girl’s look of disgust and embarrassment. The "Technician" is a rarer and far more admirable breed. With practiced technique, they subtly titillate their gropees into a state of subconscious arousal.

This chikan elite meet once a month in a Tokyo café to touch base and play with some new ideas. Over the internet, they warn each other of police crack-downs on certain train-lines. They even run practical mauling workshops, hiring girls to be bothered by them on crowded commuter trains, and offering criticism and tips.

There are special " image clubs" (imekura) catering for chikan, with tailor-made rooms built to look like subway carriages, and prostitutes paid extra to act like unsuspecting commuters.

In the words of their sensei: "Groping was once a solitary activity, but now thanks to the Internet it's become easy to link up with people who share the same kind of sexual interests."

any comments feel free to add ...
Hey maetelx, before the site was hacked into, there was a thread about a documentary from England about Japan, and within that documentary there was a part about older men groping high school girls on the train. There were other relatively humorous sub sections but this one was one of the more distrubing ones I found. I don't live in a metropolis such as NYC, Chicago, London, Berlin, or Paris where there is a rail system. For me there's only the troublesome car.
