A 40-year-old man who tricked caregivers into changing his
pretending he had the emotional maturity of a 5-year-old apologized to
a victim in court Monday before pleading guilty to charges of organized
fraud. Prosecutors said [the man] told caregivers he was incontinent
and hired at least two women to feed him and change his diapers [but]
did not pay them the amount he promised.
According to the Brevard County Sheriff's Office, [the man] sometimes
would hire women through postings on Craigslist.org. He would call them
pretending to be the brother of the disabled man who needed care. He
would then show up and pretend to be the man with the disability. The
ruse was exposed when a caregiver's husband saw him get into a car and
Lt. Tod Goodyear who heads the sex crimes unit of the sheriff's office
said he believed the man had a fetish where adults want to be fed from
bottles and wear diapers.
A Chinese man who had the world's biggest man boobs is enjoying a new
lease of life after an operation to remove them. Guo Qingpo, 53, from
Jiuying village, Dezhou, in northern China's Shandong province, said
the surgery had ended a ten year nightmare.
For many years he refused to leave his home after people labelled him a
freak or falsely accused him of undergoing transgender surgery.
"[About] two years ago they began to grow outrageously until they were
as big as footballs. People would stare at me wherever I went."
Two teams of medical staff worked side-by-side, each removing one
breast, and the operation was over in six hours.
After a month of recovery, Guo checked out of the hospital saying he
felt like a new man.
"Never again shall I fear others calling me a she male," he said.
Authorities in Maryland say a man accused of squirting
semen from a
bottle onto two female shoppers has been linked to three more cases.
[The man] was arrested and charged with spraying the fluid on a shopper
at a Giant Food store in Gaithersburg [and] was also charged in a
similar incident at a Michaels craft store in Gaithersburg.
Gaithersburg Officer Dan Lane said [the man] has been linked to three
additional cases at the same Giant store..
A[n extremely] British man said his collection of empty
dating back as far as 1984, has a total estimated worth of about
$16,000. Dave Valentine, 32, of Bexhill-on-Sea, who started his
collection with a bag of BBQ beef Hula Hoops in 1984, said the
collection also includes bags from defunct brands Griddles and Ringos.
"[Morons] love the nostalgia of looking at the old packets -- it takes
them back in time and they get a real kick of that," he said.
The collector said he has received offers from [extremely dull] museums
and other [trash hoarders], but he can't bring himself to sell his chip
"The packets are mementos of my childhood," he said. "People have
thrown big figures asking what it would take to buy the whole lot but
it would take something spectacular," [he then paused, adding, "I'm so
alone. I'm so very, very alone."]
Police say a traffic stop led to animal cruelty charges
found a live cat "marinating" in the trunk of a car. Buffalo police say
officers heard the cat meowing when they stopped 51-year-old Gary
Korkuc of Cheektowaga to ticket him for running a stop sign Sunday
