Rangers Find 3-Eyed Snake In Australian Outback

Wildlife authorities in Northern Australia probably did a double take after this sighting along a highway: a three-eyed snake. Rangers discovered the 16-inch baby carpet python in March, just outside of a town called Humpty Doo, according to a Facebook post. It was generally agreed that the eye likely developed very early during the embryonic stage of development. It is extremely unlikely that this is from environmental factors and is almost certainly a natural occurrence as malformed reptiles are relatively common. An X-ray of the creature showed it was especially unusual in that it had one skull with an additional eye socket and three functioning eyes, not two separate heads forged together. Prof Bryan Fry speculated the third eye might have been “the last little bit of a twin that’s been absorbed.” The three-eyed snake was nicknamed ― what else? Monty Python.

Snake expert Prof Bryan Fry of the University of Queensland told the BBC that mutations such as an extra eye are a natural part of evolution. “Every baby has a mutation of some sort ― this one is just particularly coarse and misshapen,” Fry said. “I haven’t seen a three-eyed snake before, but we have a two-headed carpet python in our lab ― it’s just a different kind of mutation, like what we see with Siamese twins.” “It’s remarkable it was able to survive so long in the wild with its deformity, and he was struggling to feed before he died last week,” Ranger Ray Chatto told News.com.au. Although the Facebook post showing the three-eyed snake attracted lots of attention, at least one commenter didn’t think the animal was the weirdest part of the story. “Not even disturbed by the three eyed snake … just incredibly amused that there’s a place called Humpty Doo,” Alysha Day wrote.

What Began As 3 Naked Women At A Rest Stop Ends In High-Speed Chase In Florida

Someone reported seeing the women Wednesday morning in their birthday suits at a rest area off Interstate 75, according to WFTS-TV in Tampa Bay. Three women in Florida are behind bars after lounging au naturel at a rest stop and then leading Pasco County officers on a high-speed chase that ended when one of them tried to attack officers with a pink baseball bat, authorities said. The three women said they had been staying at a relative’s house but left after an argument. Having nowhere else to shower, they said they used soap and water to bathe on the grass outside the rest stop building. A Florida Highway Patrol officer who responded to the call said that when she questioned the naked suspects, one of them said they had showered and were “air drying.” The women did get dressed before speaking to the state troopers, but then got into a white 2009 Nissan Sentra and drove away before the questioning had finished, according to WTSP-TV. The three women, identified as Oasis Mcleod, 18, Jeniyah Mcleod, 19, and Cecilia Young, 19, now face charges of fleeing to elude police, three counts of resisting arrest, two counts of aggravated assault and three counts of lewd behavior.

Troopers tracked down the vehicle to a convenience store parking lot. One trooper tried to arrest one of the women when she left the store, but her colleague appeared to purposely drive the car at the officer, authorities reported. At the same time, another woman got out of the car with a pink baseball bat and tried to hit the officer, according to an officer’s account in The Smoking Gun. The Nissan again drove away and was pursued by police. Authorities said they eventually stopped the car using spike strips. As officers busted out the windows of the car, the women interlocked arms to keep from being arrested, according to the New York Post. The women were shocked with Tasers before being taken into custody and sent to the Pasco County Jail, where they remained behind bars as of Friday evening, according to jail records charged with several counts of elude police.

Nutcase Takes on Gator While Gator Takes on Cop Car

The beast was either dull in the skull or wanted to take a bite out of crime when it latched on to the vehicle’s front bumper and wouldn’t let go, even after the Alachua County officer put the car in reverse. One moxie alligator decided to stand up to the long arm of the law near Gainesville, Fla., by going head to grill with a deputy’s squad car Sunday. Once it was dragged by its teeth several feet, it finally released its grip and was taken into custody by a trapper. Officials wouldn’t say if the beast would be relocated to the nearby state park from which they thought it came, but added that aggressive gators are usually harvested… a nice way a saying he might be looking good as a pair of boots soon.

I was in Florida that same day to set up my new lake home I purchased recently and got to meet a similar wildlife neighbor. By coincidence, “Al” I cleverly dubbed the almost 7-foot gator as he approached shoreline just off the screened-in pool in the backyard. There he sat for more than an hour eyeballing my three Chihuahuas that immediately signaled the alarm while on border patrol behind the screen. After listening to the Mexicans yap for much too long, I decided not so cleverly to take matters into my own hands and scare the gator away. Armed with a long-handled pool brush and wishing Steve Irwin were still alive, I nervously hit the ground several times with the brush as I walked toward Al. He didn’t move. I think I heard him laugh. Then, I backed off as the beast gave me what I presumed was the big stink eye. From behind, I heard one of my human neighbors, who had been observing my stupidity, say amusingly, “Proceed with caution… it’s mating season.”

theyosttheater.com for a CD release event featuring the long running act of Los Angles based LA Guns as the premier performers and they did not disappoint.

Opening the show was the Orange County based Vietnamese band DaVang, who are always willing to kick things off, the bass player, who is known by the nickname Dr. Phil once told me it does not matter when or where we go on we just want to rock America. Other bands such as Sheer Lust, Lizard Fish and Beyond Retaliation kept the crowd well entertained in anticipation of what was to come. But to the surprise of all who love and know the Los Angeles based band Stonebreed, they came ready to entertain, and entertain they did with a hard hitting set of familiar tunes along with some new innovative songs, however they ran out of time and the set was cut short to keep on schedule. All in all, The Yost theater is on point and ready to rock as a premier venue destination for local and National acts in Southern California.

Twitter Post By Fire Department Burns People Who Park In Front Of Hydrants

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — In a Twitter post Tuesday , the Anaheim Fire Department asks: “Ever wonder what happens when a car is parked in front of a fire hydrant and a fire breaks out? A California fire department enflamed some social media users but amused others by posting pictures of the busted-out windows of a car parked in front of a fire hydrant. Is a closer parking spot worth the broken windows and the citation and towing fees?” The post included four photos showing the sedan’s rear side windows busted out to make way for a fire hose. “We posted this incident to illustrate and educate, not to humiliate anyone,” the post said. One man joked: “The owner of that car is totally hosed.

The department penned a new post Wednesday after a virtual firestorm of responses, including many saying the hose could have gone over the car, or that the department shouldn’t have shamed the driver by posting the photos, which don’t include any identifying information. “In answer as to why break the windows instead of going under, over, or around the car … it doesn’t work. The hose needs a straight line out of the hydrant. We do not damage property unless it is needed.” The department further explained that putting the hose on top of the car would have caused “even more body damage.” Other users had little sympathy for the driver, with some saying there should be a special fine for slowing down firefighters when every second counts Rightfully so.

Centuries-Old ‘Witch Marks’ Found In Ancient Cave What The Hell Is Down There?

The Crow here for c4ocradio.com

If there is a gateway to hell, a portal from the underworld used by demons and witches to wreak their evil havoc on humanity, then it could be in a small Creswell Crags cave. “What were they concerned about that they would go to this level? There is no area that hasn’t got a mark on it somewhere.” “You can’t help but wonder: How scared were they of something?” asked Paul Baker, director of Creswell Crags, an ancient cave system about 150 miles north of London. In what sounds like the opening scene of a horror movie, British cave enthusiasts have discovered hundreds of centuries-old protective marks and ritualistic drawings designed to capture, trap and repel evil forces. The nonprofit organization said it could be the largest collection of apotropaic marks in the United Kingdom. The drawings, which date to the medieval and early modern periods, had been spotted before but dismissed as graffiti from more recent eras.

However, cavers from the Subterranea Britannica organization noticed that the etchings we re actually apotropaic marks ― essentially protective marks ― scrawled all over the wells, ceilings and around holes and crevices, the cave’s operator said in a news release. The markings, at Creswell Crags, a limestone gorge on the Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire border, include hundreds of letters, symbols and patterns carved, at a time when belief in witchcraft was widespread. The etchings include “diagonal lines, boxes and mazes” believed to be “devices for capturing or trapping ‘evil.’’ ” There are also V V marks that are believed to represent Mary, “Virgin of Virgins,” as well as P M, for “Pace Maria.” But it’s not clear what, specifically, the “witches’ marks” were aimed at. “It could be fairies, witches, whatever you were fearful of, it was going to be down there,” Alison Fearn, a University of Leicester expert on protective marks, told The Guardian. The cave’s organization said the marks could have been made to ward off sickness, death and poor crop yields.

Triggered By Oral Sex Woman Has Stroke Almost Dies

The Crow here for c4oc radio

According to a new report from the British Medical Journal, an unidentified 44-year-old woman suffered a “transient loss of consciousness (TLOC)” while receiving oral sex from her partner. The British woman had to go to the hospital after an intense impending orgasm triggered the stroke.
The woman was unconscious for two to three minutes after the sex, her partner got nervous and took her to the emergency room at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London. Doctors later learned she had experienced a blackout caused by a sudden lack of blood supply to the brain, also known a reflex-mediated syncope, according to IFLScience.com. The woman told doctors she had a headache that she described as a 6 out of 10 on the pain scale, according to the The Sun, the man told doctors his partner’s body had gone stiff during their session. At first, doctors believed, based on the symptoms, that the woman had suffered a seizure.

Multiorgasmic Entrepreneur

“On closer history taking, the patient reported nearing orgasm while receiving oral sex from her partner before losing consciousness,” the authors wrote in their report for the BMJ. A CT scan and a CT angiography showed she had an aneurysm, leading to a subarachnoid hemorrhage ― a kind of stroke. “Studies with intra-arterial monitoring during coitus demonstrate that during sexual activity blood pressure, as well as heart rate, is very labile, with particular rises during orgasm.” “Activities that involve sudden increases in blood pressure and sexual activity is well described as a precipitant,” they write in the case report. The researchers said it’s not unheard of for orgasms to cause stroke. The report said doctors treated the woman with a procedure called endovascular coiling, which uses a catheter to transmit a tiny coil to seal off the aneurysm from blood flow. She was released from the hospital 15 days later. Four months later, doctors say, she’s suffered no further problems.

In Order To Explore Human Emotions This Artist Photographs Sex Dolls

The Crow here for c4oc radio

Sex dolls — sometimes called love dolls — often transcend their function as toys. They’ve been used to spark not just physical but also mental and emotional responses in human beings. “It would be impossible to live forever if you’re human, but dolls will never go anywhere. So I thought about giving the gift of life and identity to dolls,” the artist explained. In his project “Still Lives: Eva,” New York-based visual artist June Korea explores loneliness and other emotions through a series of photographs featuring a female sex doll. Korea has been photographing dolls since 2001, a pursuit driven by his personal feelings of loneliness. He often finds himself meditating on the ephemerality of life and happiness, he told HuffPost Korea. Korea says that the emotions he was able to curate in this essay were drawn from personal encounters. “Most of the scenes are from my own memories and experiences,” he explained. “These photographs are like a mirror that reflects who I am.”

After meeting her for the first time ― in a FedEx box ― he decided to name the doll Eva. “The name is a combination of forever, representing eternity and Eve, humanity’s first woman,” Korea said. In the photo essay, Korea and Eva share a meal, go shopping and go for walks. In different images across the collection, the doll appears to be lonely, vulnerable, pensive and even disappointed. Korea plans to continue to photograph Eva. “I think of this as a lifelong project, but I still haven’t decided how the story will end,” he says. But he already anticipates that he will face a few challenges. “As time passes, I will grow older, but Eva will not,” he noted. “I expect that the story will portray this process and the feelings of estrangement, alienation, loneliness and other various emotions that may follow,” Korea concluded. “Could the ultimate ending be death, a breakup or a happy ending?”

Trump A Flat-Out ‘Racist’: Says Sherrod Brown ‘He Built His Political Career’ On It

The Crow here for c4oc radio

“I think this country hasn’t dealt well with the issues of race,” the lawmaker told NBC’s Chuck Todd. “We have a president who’s a racist.” When it came to addressing President Donald Trump’s history of racism, Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) didn’t mince words in a “Meet the Press” interview Sunday. Noting Brown’s frank description of Trump, Todd paused for a moment, asking him to explain. “I know that he built his political career knowing what he was doing on questioning the legitimacy and the birth place of the president of the United States,” Brown said, referring to the birther conspiracy theory Trump promoted staring in 2011, using it in an effort to undermine Barack Obama’s credibility. Brown also pointed to housing discrimination in the Trump real estate empire, adding that violence at the 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, told the country even more about the president’s beliefs on race, appearing to be alluding to Trump’s weak response to the chaos when he had initially skirted around denouncing neo-Nazis.

Most recently, Brown, who is considering a run for president, has called for the resignation of Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam following the Democrat’s admission that he had once worn blackface in a dance contest in which he impersonated Michael Jackson. Controversy has brewed steadily over the governor since last week, when a photo of a man in blackface next to another individual dressed in a Ku Klux Klan uniform surfaced from Northam’s 1984 medical school yearbook. While Northam has indicated he has no plans to step down, Brown called on him to resign and consider participating in discussions on race “as a private citizen.” “Charlottesville was only a symptom and a more public viewing and outing, if you will, of president Trump’s views about race, and racism” Brown said.
