BANGKOK, Thailand — Scientologists profess a range of supernatural powers. They claim the ability to turn drunk people sober in minutes. A Scientologist can heal the traumatized, so they say, simply by reconnecting a victim’s body with a “thetan,” or immortal spirit. None of this is backed by medical science. But that hasn’t stopped Scientologists […]

Pulling himself up by his bootstraps

What’s the problem? The guy’s just being a good capitalist! NORRISTOWN, Pa. — Authorities say a man living in a suburban Philadelphia assisted-living facility has lost his housing subsidy after officials found a prostitute underneath his bed. Uri Monson tells The Intelligencer in Doylestown the man, believed to be in his 70s, paid prostitutes using […]

The reality-based world

I always think it’s funny when people lay claim to some “reality-based” world in response to stories like this. They’re very, very common (remember the recent one where rescuers of a baby heard a voice calling from a sunken car, “Help, help” when the mother was already dead?).

Thirty-year-old Randy Schmitz doesn’t believe he would have discovered a cancerous brain tumor in its early stages […]

And it seems as though denying it was a good idea. Ryan Rucker, 33, was sleeping early yesterday when Michelle Smart, by her own admission, “attempted to make some sexual advances toward” him, according to a police report detailing the 2 AM incident. Rucker told cops that he pushed the 30-year-old Smart off of him, […]

Woman sues over ’50 Shades’ sex gel

California woman Tania Warchol is the one cracking the whip this time, spanking (heh) a class-action lawsuit against E.L. James and her less-than-effective brand of lubricant. Why, you ask? It didn’t give her the “soul-grabbing” orgasm Anastasia Steele promised. After purchasing the Fifty Shades of Grey Come Alive Pleasure Gel For Her, “on at least […]

This made me laugh

So this drunk guy in Scotland was bouncing on one of these — in an underpass, into oncoming traffic: Mr Shankland said he stopped his car because a police car was blocking the lane and there was a “commotion”. “As I pulled out past the police car I noticed there was a big red balloon […]

Long lost friends

I love stories like this: A Detroit man who long pondered the fate of his old Army buddy found him in the oddest of places: living practically next door for the last 18 years. Dave Brown heard that his basic training buddy Roger Watson had been wounded in Vietnam, which was true—Watson lost a kidney […]
