Police in Iceland shoot and kill a suspect for the first time in the nation’s history. Never forget.
In the US, police shooting and killing suspects happens every day, whether or not someone is a real threat or not. On Monday, police in Iceland had to find their one bullet in order to take out a man with a shotgun, probably all jacked up on fermented shark or something, and it was the first time any police force in the nation’s history have had to do so. I’m sure people in Iceland are shaking their heads wondering how their country could have slid so far to have this happen.
An Ontario man has been charged after he hit a bear with his car and then proceeded to get out of the car and best the bear to death with a rock. Ya know, the kind of stuff that Canadians do because they just don’t give a fuck like that.
The 41-year-old man has been charged under the Ontario SPCA Act with causing an animal to be in distress, and failure to kill an animal by a method that is humane and minimizes the pain and distress to the animal.
Charles Manson has spent only two decades of his life as a free man. The rest of it has been behind bars, where he’s gained a reputation as the craziest motherfucker on the planet. But Manson is an old man now, and one day he’ll die in Corcoran prison where he’s spent most of his days. In the meantime, he’s come to know and meet and love a 25 year old woman he calls Star, a woman who loves him and visits him in prison for up to five hours a day, a woman who carved a permanent X in her forehead to match his. Aw, love is grand.
Hide your inflatables, hide your vegetables, because he’s sticking his dick in everything.
New California law may force porn stars to wear protective eye gear while filming hardcore sex scenes
Well, someone with a very specific fetish is about to be incredibly happy.
"The latest version of a California worker safety bill may require adult film actors to wear items like protective goggles while filming sex scenes, Salon reports.

After an argument over cigarettes, James Comstock’s son Tyler stormed out of the house and took his dad’s truck. Dad calls the cops on the son to try and teach him a lesson. An hour later, Des Moines police officers unload six rounds into the truck after stopping it and Tyler is dead. I know sometimes there’s scary shit out there, but seriously cops wtf?
At least he knows what he wants.
Last week, Cecilia Abadie made history when she was pulled over for speeding by a California highway patrolman and ended up getting the world’s first ticket for wearing Google Glass while driving. The ticket doesn’t single out Google Glass specifically, but California is one of several US states that do have laws prohibiting video display screens from being visible to a driver, excluding GPS navigation. Abadie says the Glass wasn’t on, and in court, it’s going to be impossible to prove whether it was on or off or if it was on, whether she was using Google Maps… but congratulations Cecilia, you’re a trailblazer.

When you think of countries that implement harsh Islamic Sharia law from the national level, you think of countries like Saudi Arabia, Iran and the old Taliban-led Afghanistan.

This would include beheading, amputation and stoning as punishment for various crimes. It’s good to be the Sultan.
