Weird news - Living with a needle in the ass for years

Once in a while, you will read a report about somebody having a medical examination and then having something removed from their body that was foreign to the body and yet was present there for years and years. It seems most unlikely, after all, how can something be present in the body for so many years and not come out, or not even be able to feel that foreign object in the body and so on. And yet there are cases where a person has got a bullet in their body for years and even decades and it was fine, until one day when it started causing problems and has to be removed. In this case, a person had a needle in their ass and after decades, the needle finally started causing problems and had to be removed (link to article):
Kiran Kumar, from Malayankeezhu in Kerala's Thiruvananthapuram, has been living with a sewing needle in his rear for the last 22 years. Kiran, now 34 years old, had gotten the needle pierced inside when he was in the sixth grade after he sat on it. It seems he was taken to a hospital then, but the doctors weren't able to find the needle. Nor did he undergo any further check up because there was no pain or discomfort. But two weeks ago, after 22 long years, Kiran felt immense pain in his rear and went to a private hospital for check up from where he was referred to Thiruvananthapuram medical college hospital. Doctors there found that the needle is the cause of pain and swelling and understood it was one and half inches deep inside his body. They couldn't find the exact location then.

Weird news - Person dissolves in Yellowstone hot water spring

A horrific accident, that just goes to show how dangerous it can be to take security considerations and safety rules lightly. Yellowstone National Park is very attractive for visitors because of the beauty, and because of the hot springs and geysers; but underlying all this is the fact that the park sits on top of a huge volcanic chamber, and the conditions on top are because of the magma chamber underneath. As a result, there are many different types of gases (many of them dangerous), different levels of heat in the water along with many minerals that can make contact with the water dangerous. For the safety of visitors, there are regulations about where all visitors can go, and visitors are forbidden to go outside these regions. In addition, even though it may seem attractive to enjoy bathing in these hot springs, the conditions can be dangerous and hence it is prohibited. This horrific accident shows why these regulations should be followed (link to article).
This sister faced the horror of seeing her brother fall and die in a hot spring, and the high level of minerals (corrosive) caused a quick dissolution of the body to the extent that when rescuers tried to retrieve the body later, it could not found (link to article):
Like many of the 840,000 people who visited Yellowstone in June, Colin and Sable Scott, a brother and sister from Oregon, came to marvel at the basin’s thermal features. But their visit took a turn for the horrific, as The Washington Post reported, when the pair left the protective boardwalk and hiked 225 yards into the basin. “Then, somehow, Colin Scott slipped, and as his sister watched, the 23-year-old tumbled into one of the boiling springs. Despite her immediate call for help and the prolonged search efforts by park staff, her brother was never seen again,” The Post reported in June. One of the few pieces of evidence left behind was a pair of Scott’s flip-flops.

Weird news: Killing wife and cutting into parts

Imagine the horror that some bystander feels when they see a plastic bag, maybe oozing a bit of blood, or covered with red color that looks suspiciously like blood; then the curiosity takes over and you open the plastic bag and see a body part - it could be a head or a leg or hand. The sheer horror would cause you nightmares, and you wonder how somebody could be so depraved to do something like this.
One hears of this being done by crazed multiple murderers or in the movies, or even done as part of some mob action; but that this was done by a husband who killed his wife and then cut her into multiple parts, which in turn were put into plastic bags and placed around the area for unsuspecting people to find these parts and witness horror that might give them nightmares. It also makes problems for the police staff, since they have first to identify the person who has been killed and disposed off, and then try to identify the killer. However, since in a major part of cases, it is the spouse or family member who is responsible, they found the killer as well after the conclusion of the investigation (link to article):
A murder most macabre that had terrified the residents of Rajasthan's Alwar all of last week, has finally been solved. Since Diwali last week, dismembered parts of a woman's body - burnt and put into plastic bags - were being found in different residential colonies in the city. Over four days, the police came across seven such body parts, they all had one thing in common - they had been dismembered, burnt and stuffed into bags. It all began on October 30, when in Alwar's Arya Nagar - an upper middle class neighbourhood - a bag was discovered with a woman's right foot in it. The next day, two hands in two different bags were discovered. In the seventh and the last bag, found on Wednesday, was the woman's head.

Weird news - Finding a 16 feet python in the house

Ohmigod. That would be the reaction of people if they see a large snake, even on the path. There is a major fear of snakes that people have, even if the snake might be as afraid of them as they are of the snake. From ages ago, there is a fear of a snake suddenly appearing and biting and killing a person, this fear even being captured in the Garden of Eden in the Bible. So, imagine the reaction when you see a large python inside your house. I have handled a 10 feet python and know the strength (it was a baby), so the power of a 16 feet python must be incredible.
A python kills by squeezing its prey within the coils and exerting an incredible pressure till the prey gets suffocated and dies. A 16 feet python could do that to a human as well, so even though the python is not poisonous, it is deadly no less. This Australian lady who saw the python in her house did not do anything stupid, she took photos and video and called the correct authorities to handle it (link to article):
An Australian woman had an uncomfortably close encounter with a 16-feet python that she found stretched out from her living room to her guest bedroom - it looks as frightening as it sounds. Tina Hibberd from Queensland, which is partly covered in rainforest, found that the massive reptile had slithered in uninvited on June 19 at 4.30 am. She called the snake removal services for help and then took a picture of the 30 kg python that had made itself at home.

Weird news - Farted, and hence kicked out of the match

There are a number of societal rules, whether these be due to decency or for the rule of law. Farting or breaking wind in public is frowned upon in most societies, especially when this results in bad odor or a loud noise. And yet, as most people would know, farting is like the call of nature. If your stomach is not good or your intestine is full of gas, there has to be a way to remove this gas from the body and it comes out through farting. Stopping this, especially when the gas is trying to come out, is very difficult. The most a person can do is try to move away from other people at this point of time, do the expelling of air and then come back with the hope that other people do not comment on the reason for the person suddenly moving away. And yet, younger children, not bound by these rules, sometimes have fun with this sudden and loud expelling of air.
In a football game, being given a yellow or a red card is typically done for some kind of misbehavior, but this was probably the first time that a player was given a red card and thrown out of the game for farting during a game (link to article):
A Swedish footballer has hit out after being sent off for breaking wind during a match – with the referee accusing him of “deliberate provocation” and “unsportsmanlike behaviour”. Adam Lindin Ljungkvist, who was playing at left-back in the match between Järna SK’s reserve team and Pershagen SK, was shown a second yellow card late on in what local media called “bizarre circumstances”. “I had a bad stomach, so I simply let go,” the 25-year-old told Länstidningen Södertälje. “Then I received two yellow cards and then red. Yes, I was shocked, it’s the strangest thing I have ever experienced in football. “I asked the referee, ‘What, am I not allowed to break wind a little?’ ‘No,’ he replied … I don’t get it but maybe he thought I farted in my hand and threw the fart at him. But I did not.”

Weird news - Mom drives car, while overdosing on drug

It seems so weird. First of all, those who have not taken drugs and know the danger of drug addition wonder why people get caught up in drug addiction; and then there is the additional case where you wonder how a parent can put their children, especially minor children, at risk through drug addiction. After all, the concept is that minor children do not have all the abilities to survive in this world, and need the support of adults to some degree to survive and thrive; and that parents are hard-wired to care for their children and ensure that they come to no harm.
So this case where a lady was driving a car when she was basically out of control because of having over-dosed on a synthetic drug. It can be so dangerous; can easily have an accident, or drive across a red traffic light and be hit by another vehicle which was driving carefully. And of course, when police come across somebody who is being so dangerous, they are liable to take strict action (link to article):
Police say a Dallas woman was driving with her two children last week when she overdosed on a drug called Brainfreeze. Angela Williams, 37, remains in the Dallas County Jail on a charge of driving while intoxicated with a child under 15, as well as a hot check charge. Her bail is set at $7,000. About 8:20 p.m. last Thursday, Williams parked on a median at Samuell Boulevard and St. Francis Street, apparently having a seizure in her Chevy Malibu, a witness told police. Her two children, ages 11 and 13, told officers that Williams was driving “crazy” and acting irrationally, laughing at nothing in particular. The witness removed both children from the car for their safety, the police report says.

Weird news - Imagine, huge lizard tries to enter a house

A number of people are scared of lizards. If there is a lizard close by, or even if they are just old by somebody that there is a lizard, they get scared and can even jump in fright. And that seems perfectly natural, since people have from their childhood learned that there is something scary and icky about lizards. People call pest control experts to ensure that their houses are lizard free, look for many different natural solutions to prevent lizards from getting into their houses, and so on. Consider what is happening in this below case.
Almost like a scene from a horror movie, the images and photo show a giant lizard (and when we say giant, we literally mean giant - it would be longer than a man is tall with a large tail). The movie Godzilla comes to mind, although the lizard in the movie was much, much larger. But it would be an interesting experience for the people in the house, when they see this giant lizard on the door, wanting to get inside the house. And then there are people who are brave enough to want to lasso the lizard to capture it, during which the lizard could be seen swishing its giant tail (link to article):
If you don't do well with pictures or videos of giant reptiles, look away now. Then again, how often does one see a Godzilla-sized lizard on one's doorstep? A Thai resident on Wednesday captured on film his encounter with a not-so-welcome guest that knocked at his door and tried to force its way into his home. Attanai Thaiyuanwong found a monster lizard trying to get inside his house on Wednesday and immediately shared pictures on Facebook. The video shows the lizard slapping its fat tail on a glass door as someone tries to lasso it. And we thought belling the cat was difficult...
