Well it looks like they finally got what they wanted, to be just like married heterosexuals, bitter divorces, custody battles and spying on each other. May they thoroughly enjoy the fruits of marriage they demanded. :silly: :silly: :silly:
Yeah. If they'd just shacked up, splitting the sheets could have been a lot simpler.

A cousin of mine observed in the '70s that this particular preference group seems to be rife with people who are jealous and insecure (a vicious circle). That not only devastates their relationships, but often costs lives through conflict or suicide.

Oklahoma mother who forced kids to eat dog feces avoids prison

JAY, Okla. – A Delaware County woman who starved her children and made them eat dog feces will avoid jail time after pleading no contest to charges connected to the crime.

According to court documents obtained by News 4, Mary Elizabeth Moore’s 5-year-old and 3-year-old children were hospitalized in the intensive care unit and were “so malnourished that hospital staff had to place them on a special diet and applied nasal feeding tubes to both children.”

Investigators say the 5-year-old weighed just 26 pounds, while the 3-year-old weighed 18 pounds.

It sounds like a joke headline but the kids really suffered and child services apparently did take the children away from her. 

I'd think someone like that should be committed, pictures of the mother look like she is off her rocker.

Incredible.  I know the sheriff of this county.  He must have been sickened by this case.

Even puns are offensive now

A comedian has been asked to apologise for a vegetable-based joke.

Swedish comedian Olaf Falafel has been asked to apologise for a joke he made at the Edinburgh Fringe.

The joke was as follows: ‘I keep randomly shouting out “broccoli” and “cauliflower” – I think I might have florets.’ TV channel Dave awarded it the ‘Joke of the Fringe’ prize.

But not everyone was amused. Suzanne Dobson, chief executive of Tourette’s charity Tourette’s Action, thought the joke was ‘rubbish’. Fair enough.

But she went further. She also demanded an apology from the comedian: ‘Humour is a great way of educating people – but not only is it not funny to poke fun at people with Tourette’s, it’s not even that funny a joke, is it?’ She also said the joke brought ‘shame on Dave’. (Arguably a funnier statement than the joke itself.)

Of course, there is nothing offensive about this joke and people with Tourette’s are clearly not the target of it. It was a pun, not some covert incitement to hatred.

Tennessee man sues Popeyes for running out of chicken sandwiches

Quote
The Times Free Press reports that Craig Barr of East Ridge, Tennessee is challenging the company. The newspaper said the lawsuit accuses Popeyes of false advertising, deceptive business practices and causing him to waste "countless time driving" to and from local chains to find the sandwich.

Barr also claimed he was scammed out of money from a person who posted an ad online claiming he could get sandwiches from a location where they had some of them hidden in the back. He paid $25 but claims he received nothing in return.

Barr claimed he suffered tire damage and that one of his rims was cracked during his search from the sandwich.
He is seeking $5,000 in damages.

DETROIT (WXYZ) — A man is in stable condition after accidentally shooting himself twice in one night in Detroit.

Around 2:00 a.m. Saturday, scouts were dispatched to a local hospital on a "Shooting/Cutting RPT" call. Officers arrived and spoke to the 31-year-old victim, who said he shot himself at his home and then later at a bar on the 7000 block of W. Warren where he was dee-jaying.

Police say the victim sustained one gunshot wound to the thigh and was privately taken to a nearby hospital.

Fairly common actually. Punks are constants shooting themselves in their junk, in their butts, in their thighs and feet. This is what happens when they get all their 'weapons training' from TV and movies. These are the guys who will try to shoot a rifle with one hand, and hold their pistols sideways.

Punks with guns typically do not understand what a 'safety' is for, and many of them don't even know what or where it is. And they always grab their weapon by the trigger, as if the trigger is some kind of handle for picking the weapon up. If your finger is on the trigger, you are supposed to be aiming at something and ready to fire. They don't understand this.

You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.

Vegan woman demands neighbour stop using meat on barbecue due to smell
A frustrated vegan woman from Perth has taken her neighbours to court over the meat and smoke smells wafting into her backyard.
by Shireen Khalil

Frustrated vegan Cilla Carden is so fed up with her two neighbours she has taken them to court over the meat and smoke smells coming from their barbecue.

The Perth woman said she couldn’t enjoy her backyard in the suburb of Girrawheen, claiming her neighbours deliberately allow their barbecue meat and fish smells to waft into her yard.

“They’ve put it there so I smell fish, all I can smell is fish … I can’t go out there,” Ms Carden told Nine News.  ...

She told Nine News she believed her neighbours were “absolutely deliberate” in allowing their smells to cross into her yard.

And it’s not just the smell of meat and fish that has made her furious — it’s the smell of cigarettes and the sound of children playing with basketballs.

“It’s been devastating, it’s been turmoil, it’s been unrest, I haven’t been able to sleep,” Ms Carden said.  ...
Rest of story
