well, now I know what I’m doing every time a car alarm goes off
his life was totally in danger.
True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.
50 hotties I would do illegal things with - in no particular order.

Manner of Death: Sacrificed herself for her sister
“Nobody suffers the way I do. Not with a sister. With a husband—yes. With a wife—yes. With a child—yes. But this sister of mine, a dark shadow robbing me of sunlight, is my one and only torment. ” —The diary of June Gibbons
Jennifer Gibbons was born on 11 April 1963 – the second daughter to Aubrey and Gloria Gibbons. Only the second daughter by ten minutes though. Jennifer was a twin. Her sister was June.
Being of West Indian descent, but living in Wales, the girls were the subject of racial taunts during their school years. The bullying would get so bad that their principal would allow them to leave before everybody else, in order to give them a head start. The colour of their skin, coupled with the fact that they had a speech impediment, made them very difficult for people to understand, and as they grew, they avoided everyone, including their immediate family. Thankfully they had each other, and they became inseparable.
Spending every waking moment in each others company, they eventually created their very own language – an unintelligible babble which nobody else could understand. This was not the first case of twins making up their own language. In fact, it has happened so frequently that there is a word for it – “Cryptophasia“ a language developed by twins. They would mirror each others actions effortlessly and do the same tasks in the same way, at the same time etcetera. To the outside world, they were elective mutes.
Their parents were understandably alarmed at their behaviour, and sent them to therapist after therapist, trying to assist them in communicating with others, but to no avail. When they turned 14 they were sent to separate boarding schools, in an effort to force them to communicate outside of their family unit, but instead both girls became catatonic and withdrew into themselves entirely.
They left school when they were 16, went on unemployment benefits, and locked themselves in their bedroom. They were hardly seen about the house and their mother would have to deliver their food on a tray and leave it at their door.
The girls had decided they were going to be writers. They pooled their unemployment benefits together which paid for the publication of June’s novel “Pepsi-Cola Addict”. Jennifer also wrote, three novels in total, but none of her books were published.
At around this same time the girls also lost their virginity – a week apart – to the same boy. It is said they took to sex like a duck to water. They also started drinking heavily and smoking dope.
Although it sounds like they were the best of friends, they were also the worst of enemies. Their relationship involved equal parts laughter and violence. One time Jennifer attempted to kill June by strangling her with a radio cord. Another time June tried to drown Jennifer in a river. June was heard to say, later in life, that she couldn’t seem to live with Jennifer, but also couldn’t seem to live without her.
Their drug and alcohol problem led them to commit petty theft and arson. In October 1981 they injured a fireman when they deliberately burned down a tractor store, causing $200,000 worth of damage. Their violent spree could not last though. A few weeks after this incident they were caught vandalising and attempting to burn down a technical college not far from where they lived.
Instead of locking them up in prison, they were sent to Broadmoor, a maximum security hospital near London for the criminally insane. When placed in Broadmoor they underwent an IQ test, and it is said both of their results were well above average. They were that special kind of genius – so smart, but completely lacking in any form of social skill.
The sisters remained in Broadmoor for 12 long years. During their stay, both were placed on high doses of antipsychotic medications, which lead to their interest in writing all but squashed. They were kept in separate wards of Broadmoor, and frequently attacked each other for no apparent reason when crossing paths. At other times they would meet in a social situation and be completely wrapped up in each other and their private language.
Jennifer’s death is somewhat of a mystery. It is said that while they were in Broadmoor, they both came to believe that if either of them were to live a normal life, one must die. They made a pact that should one die, the other would start to speak and interact like everybody else. After talking it over for quite some time, Jennifer agreed to be the “sacrifice” which would enable June to live out her life in a normal way.
In an attempt to begin their rehabilitation back into the ‘real’ world, the twins were transferred to a less stringent clinic known as Caswell. Upon arrival, it was noted that Jennifer was very ill. She was immediately transferred to hospital, where she died two hours later from a sudden inflammation of the heart known as acute myocarditis. An autopsy revealed that there was no evidence of poison in her system, nor any trace of drugs. No cause of death has ever been established.
A journalist who visited June a few days after Jennifer’s death told of how June was “in a strange mood. She said ‘I’m free at last, liberated and at last Jennifer has given up her life for me’.”
June does indeed live a normal life now. She has been accepted by her community, lives close to her parents, but independently, and is no longer undergoing any psychiatric treatment.
Did Jennifer and June have some kind of psychic link?
Did Jennifer somehow give up her own life, so June could live hers to the fullest?

An American hiker who decided he wanted to live a simple life, and so he gave up the life he had and ventured off into the Alaskan wilderness(without even as much as a compass). Four months later his dead body was found, weighing only 67 lbs.
The cause of death was starvation, but after recent studies have speculated that, poisoning from Hedysarum alpinum seeds may have been a factor in his death.
Into the Wild is based off his story.
Oun Sambath and Chomran
Sambath’s mother would often have dreams about a snake coming to protect her family. When Sambath was 3 months old, his mom found a snake (about thumb sized) coiled under her son’s bed. They took the snake out released it into the bushes, but a couple of weeks later they found that the snake had returned. They took that as a good sign and decided to keep the snake. They named her Chomran, which means good luck.
Sambath and Chomran grew up together. They sleep together, eat together, play together and they even talk to eachother. Chomran even has her own room. They believe that Chomran has special powers that protect their family from illness and harm.
Many wildlife protectors, police officials and movie makers tried to take away this pet snake from Sambath and put it in a zoo, but the snake boy said, “I will not let anyone take her away from me, either. I love her very much,” while kissing his beloved pet on the head.
Coming of Age Ritual
The Satere-Mawe Tribe, an indigenous tribe from the Amazon rain forest (Brazil), has a very unique coming of age ritual. To become a man, a boy has to place his hands inside a gloves filled with a swarm of bullet ants. A sting from a bullet ant is ranked number one on the SSPI (Schmidt Sting Pain Index) which categorizes the pain from different hymenopteran stings. The pain has been equated to being shot or being set on fire.
The ants are caught in the jungle and placed, stinger first, in special woven gloves. As the drugs wear off, the ants become enraged and eager to sting. The boy must now place his hands in the gloves for 5-10 minutes and endure hundreds of stings. If he cries, he has to do the ritual over. The day the boy doesn’t shed a single tear, is when he is considered a “real man.”
