    Monday , November 17, 2008

    SWEET HOME, Ore.

    An Oregon woman who is out $400,000 after falling for a well-known Internet scam says she wasn't a sucker or an easy mark. Janella Spears of Sweet Home says she simply became curious when she received an e-mail promising her $20.5 million if she would only help out a long-lost relative identified as J.B. Spears with a little money up front. Spears told KATU-TV about the scammers' ability to identify her relative by name was persuasive. "That's what got me to believe it," She said. "So, why wouldn't you send over $100?"

    Spears, who is a nursing administrator and CPR teacher, said she mortgaged the house and took a lien out on the family car, and ran through her husband's retirement account. "The retirement he was dreaming of cruising and going around and seeing America is pretty much gone for him right now," she said. She estimates it will take two years to clear the debt that accumulated in the more than two years she spent sending money to con artists. Her family and bank officials told her it was all a scam, she said, and begged her to stop, but she persisted because she became obsessed with getting paid.

    The scheme is often called the "Nigerian scam" and it's familiar to many people with e-mail accounts. It still exists and it still works. Spears first sent $100 through an untraceable wire service as directed by the scammers. Then, more multimillion dollar promises followed so long as she sent more money. The scammers sent Spears official-looking documents and certificates from the Bank of Nigeria and the United Nations. President Bush and FBI Director Robert Mueller were also involved, the e-mails said, and needed her help. They sent official-looking documents and certificates from the Bank of Nigeria and even from the United Nations, saying her payment was "guaranteed." But it wasn't and now Spears is paying the price for her costly lesson.
    "The hope is [other people] are not going to fall as hard as I fell," Spears said.

    Boy Collapses After Playing 'World of Warcraft' for 24 Hours Straight


    Monday , November 17, 2008


    A schoolboy collapsed and went into convulsions after playing a new version of the "World of Warcraft" online computer game for 24 hours straight. The 15-year-old boy and his friends were exploring the "Wrath of the Lich King" expansion pack when he suffered what appeared to be an epileptic seizure, it was reported Monday.

    "They played all day and all night. Maybe they got a few hours of sleep. They ate a little food and breakfast at their computers," the boy's father told the Kvllsposten newspaper in Sweden.

    Doctors told the father that his son's bodily systems had been disrupted by a combination of sleep deprivation, lack of food and the prolonged period of concentration playing the game. The teenager and six friends were reported to have gathered at his home in Laholm, western Sweden, on Saturday to play the updated version of the game, which went on sale Thursday. He collapsed at around 2 p.m. Sunday.

    The boy is expected to make a full recovery but his father said he plans on limiting the amount of time his son is allowed to play computer games.

    Yeah I just dont get how parents can let their kids play that damn long on a game. Hell my parents let me do that too. I remember playing on weekends for 24hrs straight quite a few times. Not good, but ofcourse I was a teenager..So I was fine with it.

    They really need to be on top of things like that. Have enough balls to tell them enough is enough and turn the damn computer off. If they don't like it take the comp away.

    Tea Time Love Bite

    Associated Press wrote:Tea Time Love Bite

    A woman almost bit off her husband's willy as he cooked pancakes for tea - while she gave him oral sex.

    In the heat of passion he lost his grip on the pan and spilt boiling oil down her naked back.

    She clenched her teeth on his willy and in agony he bashed her on the head with the pan.

    Both only admitted how they received their injuries after "intense questioning" by hospital docs in Carioca, Romania.

    The man needed treatment to his willy while the wife had burns, two black eyes and a broken cheek bone.

    Idiot # 1
    I am a medical student currently doing a rotation in toxicology at the
    poison control center. Today, this woman called in very upset because
    she caught her little daughter eating ants. I quickly reassured her that
    the ants are not harmful and there would be no need to bring her daughter
    into the hospital. She calmed down, and at the end of the conversation
    happened to mention that she gave her daughter some ant poison to eat in
    order to kill the ants. I told her that she better bring her daughter
    into the Emergency room right away.


    Idiot # 2 - A true story out of San Francisco:
    A man, wanting to rob a downtown Bank of America, walked into the branch
    and wrote "this iz a stikkup. Put all your muny in this bag." While
    standing in line, waiting to give his note to the teller, he began to
    worry that someone had seen him write the note and might call the police
    before he reached the teller's window. So he left the Bank of America
    and crossed the street to Wells Fargo.

    After waiting a few minutes in line, he handed his note to the Wells
    Fargo teller. She read it and, surmising from his spelling errors that
    he wasn't the brightest light in the harbor, told him that she could not
    accept his stickup note because it was written on a Bank of America deposit
    slip and that he would either have to fill out a Wells Fargo deposit slip
    or go back to Bank of America.

    Looking somewhat defeated, the man said, "OK" and left. He was arrested
    a few minutes later, as he was waiting in line back at Bank of America.


    Idiot # 3
    A motorist was unknowingly caught in an automated speed trap that measured
    his speed using radar and photographed his car. He later received in the
    mail a ticket for $40 and a photo of his car. Instead of payment, he
    sent the police department a photograph of $40. Several days later, he
    received a letter from the police that contained another picture, this
    time of handcuffs. He immediately mailed in his $40.


    Idiot # 4
    Guy walked into a little corner store with a shotgun and demanded all the
    cash from the cash drawer. After the cashier put the cash in a bag, the
    robber saw a bottle of scotch that he wanted behind the counter on the
    shelf. He told the cashier to put it in the bag as well, but the cashier
    refused and said, "Because I don't believe you are over 21." The robber
    said he was, but the clerk still refused to give it to him because he
    didn't believe him.

    At this point the robber took his driver's license out of his wallet and
    gave it to the clerk. The clerk looked it over, agreed that the man was
    in fact over 21 and he put the scotch in the bag. The robber then ran from
    the store with his loot. The cashier promptly called the police and gave the
    name and address of the robber that he got off the license. They
    arrested the robber two hours later.

    EDIT: Some more

    Just the other day, I pulled up to the pump at the neighborhood gas
    station, shut off the engine, handed the attendant the keys, and mumbled
    absently, "Ten dollars regular, please." He looked at me, at the
    pump, then at the rear of the car, and asked if I could pull it up
    a little. I must have looked at him rather blankly, because he repeated
    himself, slowly, emphasizing every word. "Can... you... pull it
    up... a little... please?" I answered in the same tone, pressing the
    tips of my index and middle fingers together with my thumb and making a
    forward twisting motion for emphasis. "Can... you... give
    me... back... the keys... please?"

    I never thought I'd have to say this, but apparently I do: Ladies . . . just because you've signed a contract which requires you to have sex with a man doesn't mean you actually have to do it.

    I only bring this up because today's idiots are the women in this story...

    Daily News Online wrote:Last Thursday, 50-year-old William Smith of Kelso, Washington, was convicted of rape . . . after he tricked three women into signing "relations contracts" with him.

    Smith drew up the contracts agreeing to help three women . . . two of whom are his relatives . . . to pay for child care, housing costs, clothing and breast augmentation surgery . . . in return for sexual favors. The women say they didn't want to have sex with Smith . . . but they thought they had to since they'd signed a contract.

    According to the prosecutor on the case, "[Smith's] own words tell us what he's doing . . . The language in these contracts clearly shows he knows he's committing a crime, that he wants to make them his relations slaves because he wants control."

    Smith's sentencing is on December 30th. He could get up to 20 years in prison and $40,000 in fines.

    Here's one for ya:

    When I was a cop I was running traffic (something which I was loathe to do as I speed like my ass is on fire typically). Anyway, I pulled over this old guy who was very grumpy and way weird. His entire car was full of everything from the kitchen sink (yes really) to stuffed animals (taxidermy not cute and cuddly) to mail and old food containers. I gave him a ticket (mostly for being an asshole as I was gonna just give him a warning but he pissed me off).

    When he showed up to court (which he did because I posted the court date on his citation) he swore that I didn't actually write him a ticket and he shouldn't have to pay a fine. The judge asked if I did give him something and he swore that I handed him a shampoo coupon, not a speeding ticket. Needless to say he had to pay the fine.

    It relates to Clarke's Law of Intelligence, attributed the late SF author, Arthur C. Clarke.

    "There are a finite number of IQ points in the world to go around. Unfortunately, the population of the world is not a finite number." (Or something like that.)

    (We all know that the answer is 42.)

    To see just how dumb the human race has become, just visit: Darwin Awards.

    The above site basically tracks stupidity then rewards it at the end of the year with their very own award. However, most are awarded posthumously as the act of stupidity usually ends in death.

    Darwin Awards wrote:Based on a bet by the other members of his threesome, Everitt Sanchez tried to wash his own "balls" in a ball washer at the local golf course. Proving once again that beer and testosterone are a bad mix, Sanchez managed to straddle the ball washer and dangle his scrotum in the machine. Much to his dismay, one of his buddies upped the ante by spinning the crank on the machine with Sanchez's scrotum in place, thus wedging them solidly in the mechanism. Sanchez, who immediately passed his threshold of pain, collapsed and tumbled from his perch. Unfortunately for Sanchez, the height of the ball washer was more than a foot higher off the ground than his testicles are in a normal stance, and the scrotum was the weakest link. Sanchez's scrotum was ripped open during the fall, and one testicle was plucked from him forever and remained in the ball washer, while the other testicle was compressed and flattened as it was pulled between the housing of the washer, and the rotating machinery inside. To add insult to injury, Sanchez broke a new $300 driver that he had just purchased from the proshop, and was using to balance himself. Sanchez was rushed to the hospital for surgery, and the remaining three some were asked to leave the course. This last one wouldn't normally count, because the idiot didn't die. But because he cannot reproduce as a result of his qualifying act of stupidity, we have allowed it.

    Okay one more "When I used to be a cop story" since I have a variable plethora of stupid stories. Called to person in duress at a barn. Arrived to find 60 year old male deceased, hanging from barn rafter. Dressed in black latex, porn on small portable tv, member dangling as well. Auto-erotic asphyxiation.....stepped off the hay bail and was unable to get back up (no pun intended).

    Unfortunately, he'd already procreated, as his 19 year old son found him.

    Ok, a few new ones. I am sure that most of you have heard two of the stories already.

    #1.) Early Friday morning, 34-year-old Jdimytai Damour . . . a security guard at Wal-Mart in Valley Stream, New York. . . was TRAMPLED TO DEATH by holiday shoppers.

    According to Wal-Mart officials, about 2,000 people (the idiots) were waiting to get into the store for Black Friday sales, and when the doors opened at 5:00 A.M., Jdimytai got caught up in the stampede and was shoved to the floor.

    Overall, FOUR others were injured, including a woman who is eight months pregnant. (WABC News 7 - New York)

    #2.) Also on Friday, 28-year-old Juan Meza and 39-year-old Alejandro Moreno (the idiots) shot each other DEAD while shopping at Toys "R" Us in Palm Desert, California.

    According to police, Juan and Alejandro started chasing each other around the crowded store and SHOOTING at one another . . . after their lady friends got into an argument. Fortunately, no one else was injured. (Los Angeles Times)

    #3.) On Thanksgiving night, police responded to a burglar alarm at PNC Bank in Montgomery Township, New Jersey.

    Anyway, the police (the idiots) saw a person inside through the bank's front window . . . so they sealed off the area and evacuated three nearby buildings before trying to make contact with the bank robbers.

    But after using bullhorns and making several phone calls to the bank . . . the robbers still hadn't responded.

    So after a few hours, a SWAT team entered the bank to take out the robbers, only to learn that the "bank robber" they'd seen in the window . . . was actually a cardboard cutout. (Yahoo News)

    For those of you who don't know ......he's a very well known Wide Receiver for the New York Giants Football team...and the dumbass just had to turn himself in for illegal possession of a firearm after the moron shot himself in the leg with his own gun in a nightclub.

    Just proves once again....money does not mean intelligence.
