Rotherham Child-Sex Victim Confronts Her Alleged Abuser In The Street… But SHE Is Arrested By A Van Load Of Police

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A victim of Rotherham’s child sex abuse scandal confronted a man she says groomed her – but was left shocked when she was the one arrested.

  The woman was shocked when she saw the man walking through the town’s centre on Friday and decided to challenge him over the allegations.

  But she was tackled by two police officers and pushed up against a wall during her ‘thuggish’ arrest, a witness has said.

  A damning report released last month detailed how 1,400 children were sexually exploited in the area over a 16-year period.

  The Times reported that a woman whose case is being investigated by authorities – but has not yet been interviewed – was arrested after tackling a man she says groomed her when she was 15.

  A witness accused the police of ‘acting like insensitive thugs’, telling the paper: ‘A police van came and six male officers piled out.

‘ Two of them dragged her away, handcuffed her, put her against a wall and then shoved her into the back of the van.’

  South Yorkshire Police told today how they had been hoping to interview the woman in the weeks before the arrest, after they were told of the historic allegations by another organisation.

  But they only realised that she was the woman they had been trying to speak to after her arrest, and have now released her on bail.”

Boston Marathon Victims Denied Insurance Reimbursement Because Bombing Was ‘Not Act Of Terrorism’

 

Feds: This is not terrorism

 

 

” The context is the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act, which was passed just after the 9/11 attacks. It’s a a federally-administered and underwritten insurance program for terrorism-caused damage, designed to be relatively inexpensive but to compensate policy owners in the event of a man-caused disaster.

  Twenty-two Boston-based companies carried that insurance and for pay-out purposes, the attacks have not been classified as acts of terror.

  Instead, the law’s details state that insurance losses must exceed $5 million to be certified as terrorism, and so far only $1.9 million in claims have been issued. That actual terrorists blew stuff up, killed people, and caused damage is only part of the equation and not sufficient to make an “act of terrorism” determination. The rest of the critical factors depend on the dollar value.

  Whether this detail stems from a crony relationship between the government and the insurance companies, as they write the policies and benefit from the premiums whereas the payouts are taxpayer supported, or just a well-intentioned mistake, is unclear. “

 

    Our bet is on the crony relationship , not a “well-intentioned” mistake . What do you think ? Read more and decide for yourself .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Moments After These Selfies Were Taken, Disturbing Tragedy Struck

 

 

8.) Jenni Rivera.

” Mexican pop star Jenni Rivera took this picture with her crew right before takeoff. Their private jet crashed and killed them all.”

 

 

” Some day, when you die, there will be a last photo of you floating out there somewhere. It’s crazy to think that some of those last photos were taken by the subject themselves, but that’s what happened to these people in a series of tragic events.

  No matter where you stand on the issue of selfies, it’s clear these are all terrible events. Not all of these people put themselves at unnecessary risk for a cool picture, but a few did and that makes it even worse. 

  After these photos were taken, the most terrible thing happened… “

You Want Nazis?

 

 

 

” There have been Christians in Mosul for just shy of two millennia, since the first century. There are none today.

  The Yazidi are practitioners of Kurdistan’s oldest religion, fire-worshippers whose presence in the region predates Islam. They’re either being executed or starved to death on a mountain:

We are being slaughtered. Our entire religion is being wiped off the face of the earth.

  ISIS are fast-track Nazis. No messing about with a few property restrictions and intermarriage laws as a little light warm-up: They’re only in the business of “final solutions”, and they start on Day One and don’t quit until the last Christian and Yazidi is dead or fled. As I’ve often remarked about today’s exhaustively cleansed Maghreb, Levant and Araby, Islam is king on a field of corpses. But pikers like the Muslim Brotherhood, the Baathists, the House of Saud take their time. ISIS are shooting for the Guinness Book of Records.

  Fortunately, progressive opinion in the west hates Jews more than it loves Christians or Yazidi or Shia or Kurds, so ISIS can get on with killing everyone they want to kill. George Packer reports in The New Yorker:

  Karim couldn’t help expressing bitterness about this. “I don’t see any attention from the rest of the world,” he said. “In one day, they killed more than two thousand Yazidi in Sinjar, and the whole world says, ‘Save Gaza, save Gaza.’ “

  Indeed. But you have to pick your causes. To put pressure on Netanyahu, you fly in John Kerry to bore him to death. To put pressure on ISIS would require a commitment the west is not willing to make. So Christians will vanish from the region, and the Yazidi will vanish from the world. “

Top 10 Countries That Love The U.S., And The Top 10 That Hate Us

 

 

 

 

 

” The top 10 countries that are fans of the U.S., and the top 10 countries that are critics, includes some surprises: France made #10 on the fan list, and Germany made #10 on the critics, based on a new Pew Research Center survey.

  What’s not surprising here is that Israel is our #2 fan, and the U.S. gets high unfavorable ratings from Palestinians.

  There is little evidence of “profound anti-Americanism” except in a handful of countries, Pew’s research found.”

 

    To us, the most startling revelation in the poll is France making the top ten in ranking America favorably . Surprises never cease . Read the whole thing which reveals strong support for America in Asia , Africa and Latin America and much less positive ratings in Europe and the mideast . 

 Funny how the two regions most likely to have a negative view of America are also the regions that thrive on antisemitism and Jew-hating .

   Another commonality that springs to mind , this one on the positive side of the poll is that the ten countries that think the most highly of the US have been on the receiving end of very little American attention , diplomatic or otherwise , over the past half decade or so … coincidence ?

Twitter erupted with digital eye-rolls at Obama’s curt mention of the ‘tragedy’ that the Ukrainian government quickly called a ‘criminal case’

 

 

Boston Globe reporter Matt Viser captured the online reactions to Obama's statement about the downed airliner

 

 

 

 

” President Barack Obama provoked fury in the U.S. on Thursday by casually devoting less than a minute to the deaths of 295 people aboard a Malaysian airliner, as he began an often jokey 16-minute speech about the need to expand America’s transportation infrastructure.

  There are no confirmed American dead, although it was feared around the time the president made his remarks that as many as 23 U.S. citizens had perished.

  Obama declared in Wilmington, Delaware that ‘it looks like it may be a terrible tragedy,’ but not before enthusiastically declaring that ‘it is wonderful to be back in Delaware.’ “

 

This is what passes for leadership in today’s America … mores the pity .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Panting Dog Spotted Inside Locked SUV In 90-Degree Texas Heat – Wet’n’Wild Splash Town Water Park

 

 

 

 

Published on Jun 16, 2014

” As Xochitl Dalton pulled into the parking lot of the Wet’n’Wild Splash Town water park, a disturbing sight caught her eye. “I looked over and saw that there was a huge yellow Lab,” she told KPRC-TV in Houston, noting the dog inside an SUV with Wisconsin plates parked next to her vehicle. “It looked like it was really, really hot.” Indeed, temperatures in the area passed 90 degrees on Friday, but investigators later told the station that the temperature inside the vehicle in question could have been as much as 140 degrees — and deputies said the dog was on the verge of passing out after being locked inside for hours. So Dalton summoned police to the water park in Spring, Texas, about a half hour north of Houston — but she did something else, too.

“I posted a picture of the dog to several Facebook groups,” she told KPRC. “I was amazed at how many people were wanting to rescue this dog.” In fact, about a dozen people from all over town rushed over to the water park to help.
“I immediately dropped everything, got in my car and drove from Magnolia up here, ready to bust the windshield out,” Melissa Camp, who saw the post on Facebook, told the station. On Dalton’s Facebook page, as she apparently chatted with concerned friends after posting the photo of the dog, she writes that a police officer had arrived but wouldn’t break the vehicle’s window: “He is trying to find the owner!” Dalton writes. “Really??” 

  Before those gathered around the vehicle broke any windows and before police returned to the scene, KPRC reported that a park employee squeezed his hand through a small opening in the window, unlocked the door, and got the panting Labrador out.

  When the park closed Friday evening, KPRC reported that authorities found the dog’s owner and arrested him. He wasn’t identified but deputies indicated he’d be booked into jail on animal cruelty charges. The dog underwent a health evaluation and was in the custody of the Harris County Constable Pct. 1 Office.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mexican Sex Slaves Pour Over Our Undefended Southern Border From Pimp City

 

 

 

 

 

” A town of just ten thousand people, Tenancingo has thrived for the past half-century thanks to a lucrative family business. Grandfathers passed the trade down to fathers, and fathers in turn, to their sons — that business is sex trafficking.”

 

 

Pimp City

 

 

” But the prostitutes involved in their scheme aren’t willing participants. Many are from rural and indigenous villages throughout Mexico, and are kidnapped, trapped, and seduced in a trade the sons of Tenancingo have been perfecting for decades.”

 

 

   This is a true war on women and it is actively aided and abetted by the Obama administration’s failure to secure our souther border .

 

” Once in the U.S, the girls are forced to see as many as 60 clients a day. These men, typically called “Johns,” pay about $35 for 15 minutes of sex, according to Sanctuary for Families, a nonprofit advocacy group for sex-trafficking victims. The money is then wired back to Tenancingo, where mansions with lavish courtyards and tawdry cupolas line the streets.”

 

 

image description

 

 

” There’s a lot of debate around just how many sex slaves there are in the U.S. and how many are from this small city. Whether Tenancingo sends dozens, hundreds, or thousands of women a year to the U.S., there’s undoubtedly one place where many of them are sent: Queens, N.Y.”

 

 

    Putting aside the issues of national security , drug smuggling and illegal alien invasion , the proliferation of human trafficking over the US-Mexican border should be reason enough all by itself to secure said border and aid in stopping this real war on women , unless of course , you are a hypocritical Dem who would prefer to gain political advantage by blasting your opponents across the aisle as the “real perpetrators” of the war on women .

17 Things That Kill More Often Than Shootings By ‘Far Right Extremists’ In A Single Chart

 

 

” According to the START consortium at the University of Maryland, here is the threat from “far right” extremism in America:

  • Between 1990 and 2013, there were 155 ideologically motivated homicide events committed by far-right extremists in the United States. About 13 percent of these were anti-government in nature.
  • Including the Oklahoma City Bombing, which killed 168 individuals, far-right extremists killed 368 individuals during ideologically motivated homicide events between 1990 and 2013.

  Even if we factor in the Oklahoma City bombing we are talking about 16 fatalities a year. In a nation of over 300 million people.

  Let’s contextualize by showing the odds of being killed by other things in America that are not “far right” extremists with this Economist chart:

 

death-in-America

  If the odds of dying in a given year for an American is about 20,000,000:1, then you are more likely to be killed by the following things than by “right-wing extremists”:

 

  Heart disease, accidents and injuries, intentional self-harm, assault by firearms, walking, choking, fire, post-surgical complications, alcohol, falling down stairs, exposure to forces of nature, cycling, exposure to excessive natural cold, firearms discharge, storms, lightning, and dog bites.

  Even if the Las Vegas shooters were right-wing “anti-government” types, we still need to know one basic fact: the number of deadly acts of “far-right” anti-government extremism is fewer than one a year over 23 years.

  It is patently absurd to represent millions of Americans by extreme cases, and this type of false inductive reasoning is rejected in serious research. Nonetheless, the news media grab onto extreme cases and hold them up as representative of decent, hard-working Americans.

  Getting killed by a far right extremist is about as likely to happen to an American as getting killed by a bee sting – which has odds of around 25,000,000:1.  Maybe the Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security should look into the threats posed by angry bees in the United States?

  In addition, those who are gun control proponents make the claim that firearms are a threat to society, and base that claim in part on the statistic that there were 12,800 homicides in the United States

  But they’re not looking at the over 100 million people who have access to guns. Each year, Americans with access to guns are around ten thousand times more likely not to unlawfully use a firearm than to use one to commit a homicide.

  Also, as CNS News and Mediaite pointed out, mass shootings are not on the rise in the United States, and crime on the whole has been falling for decades.

  As far as right-wing “terrorism” goes, it barely registers a blip compared to eco-terrorism and Islamist terrorism. But the partisan media don’t want you to know that; they’d rather take extreme events out of context and use them to attack their political enemies.”

Revealed: Twin Sisters Lived In Fear Of Bowe Bergdahl’s ‘Stalker’ Father Who Was Caught ‘Peeping Into Their Windows While They Were In The Shower’

 

 

” The father of embattled POW Bowe Bergdahl, who landed on US soil today, waged a sinister campaign of stalking and harassment against pretty twin sisters – even stealing a gnome from their garden and peaking at them in the shower, the sisters claim in shocking police reports.

  Bearded Robert ‘Bob’ Bergdahl drove by the home of Lacey and Allie Hillman ‘several times a day’ over a period of months and left ‘creepy’ notes for them, the sisters allege in police documents, obtained exclusively by MailOnline.

  Once Bergdahl banged on Allie’s door and accused her of ‘two-timing’ him – despite the fact that the pair never dated or were even friends, Allie told police.”

As With All Things Progressive It All Depends On What The Meaning Of “Is” Is

 

 

    By now everyone has heard of the latest effort from Nanny Bloomberg as the astroturfers in the liberal media regarding the epidemic of “school shootings” since Sandy Hook . 74 of them if the usual suspects are to be believed . Since this meme seems to be spreading like wildfire across the web we thought we would make a concerted effort to quantify exactly what the gun grabber Statists consider to be “school shootings” .

   Below is our result . Make of it what you will and please understand that by quibbling with the Statist’s methodology we are in no way minimizing the pain and horror felt by the families that are made to suffer at the hands of thugs with guns .  However , all sympathies aside , that does not grant the Left license to twist the English language to their will .

 Let us start by saying that in our minds a school shooting at least as they have come to be understood is an incident where an disgruntled individual , whether it be student or adult enters a place of education with the intent to “avenge wrongs” however warped or imagined they may be by killing and maiming as many students and/or faculty as possible , usually before taking their own lives .

 If that definition is acceptable it stands to reason that other types of shootings , whatever the reason , are not exactly honest comparisons to “going postal” . That means that common robberies , suicides , arguments over games , debts , girlfriends and what have you should be categorized as what they truly are , at least to those without an agenda , crimes , plain old ordinary , violent crimes .

 That being the case , Everytown’s map is very misleading to say the least , and downright deceitful to be perfectly honest.We took they time to explore every single incident included on Bloomy’s map and provide the reader with a synopsis of the fatalities/injuries links to the sources and a diagnosis of the type of shooting that each incident represents .

Below is our result , survey the data , follow the links , bookmark the page and feel free to use these facts in any refutation you might need to defend against the Statists in your sphere of influence . At the end we have provided an approximate count on the actual school shootings that meet our above mentioned criteria along with what we feel are “other” categories … ie , robbery , suicide , lovers spats , gang violence , accidental discharges , fights that escalate to arms , etc .

    There is your data . As you can see each alleged “school shooting” from the infamous map , as defined by Bloomberg & Co is represented with a link to a legitimate news story about the incident . Two incidents claimed by the map were unable to be corroborated by yours truly and so that brings the count to 72 alleged incidents .

   Of those 72 “school shootings” we can only count 8 as meeting our criteria as far as being as school shooting in the Columbine/Sandy Hook interpretation . Of course none of them come anywhere near the horror of those but that is an argument for another day . 

   Of the 64  incidents left our count leads us to the following statistics : 

 

     Gang related/Drive-by – 3

     Robbery/Crime – 6

      Fights – 13

      Suicides – 10

      Personal – 8

      After Hours/Proximity To School – 12

      Accidental Discharges/Irresponsible Shooting/Stray Bullets – 10

      Self-Defense – 2

 

    The death toll for all of these shootings combined compares to the average weekend in Chicago at 31 fatalities . Of those thirty one lost lives ten were non-students who were found/killed on school property after hours , eight were suicides , three were the perpetrators themselves and one was a criminal killed in self-defense which leaves nine students and/or teachers killed . 

It goes without saying that any loss of life is a tragedy but at the same time it is just as unseemly to dishonestly climb atop the graves of these unfortunate lost souls and attempt to gain cheap political points in order to further one’s personal agenda and that is what is taking place here .

    Bloomberg and his allies , like the progressives in general , are attempting to tug at the heartstrings and push their legislative goals wrapped as a moral imperative that is not to be questioned under pain of being called uncaring . It’s just another card out of the “racist” deck cavalry . Whenever they are losing an argument on the merits they jump up , knock the cards from the table and cry “have you no decency” ?

Just an aside before we leave you . The number of children that die at the hands of their parents every year in America dwarves the numbers above . Yes , you read correctly . It is estimated that somewhere in the neighborhood of 400 children under the age of five are killed each year by their parents . Think about that before deciding that school shootings are some sort of epidemic .

Justina Pelletier Makes Tearful Plea To Judge, Asking To Go Home

 

 

 

” Justina Pelletier, the Connecticut teen taken from her family more than a year ago by Massachusetts officials after her parents took her to a hospital for help, made a tearful plea to the Bay State family court judge who holds her fate in his hands.

  In the 45-second, videotaped plea, first posted on a Facebook page set up by supporters of the 15-year-old, Justina is seen sitting in a chair and pleading plaintively with Massachusetts juvenile court Judge Joseph Johnston.

” All I really want is to be with my family and friends,” the girl says, her voice faltering at times. “You can do it. You’re the one that’s judging this. Please let me go home.”

  Justina also directs her plea to Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, whose state Department of Children and Families made the initial decision to commit the girl to state care on Valentine’s Day 2013 after doctors at Tufts Medical Center, which had been treating her for a rare condition, and doctors as Boston Children’s Hospital clashed over the cause of her medical problems, which included difficulty eating and walking.”

GoPro Footage Helps Capture Armed Robbery Suspects

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Surveillance footage used to solve crimes usually comes from a stationary camera, perhaps mounted in the corner of a gas station, a shopping center, or an ATM. But even security cams have now gone mobile, as evidenced in a new YouTube clip filmed with a GoPro.

  Last Saturday, Malcolm Fox was finishing up a bike ride at Sir Lowry’s Pass in the Western Cape province of South Africa. Fox fitted himself with a GoPro helmet for the trek. As the cyclist crossed a set of train tracks, he looked up and saw a man armed with a gun approach him.

  Fox immediately stopped, got off the bike, and raised both hands in the air. According to Fox, two accomplices then joined the suspect. The biker was cooperative, not putting up a fight as the robbers took his sunglasses, car keys, cellphone, and bike.

  They left Fox with just his helmet, with the GoPro camera still mounted to it and recording.”

10 Freak Accidents People Somehow Survived

 

 

” Ever had one of those days when you just can’t seem to catch a break? Of course; we all have. You hit every red light, hurt yourself in comically unlikely ways, and at the end of the day, you’re grateful to crawl into bed without having broken anything. The flip side are those days when nothing can go wrong, and we’ve all had those, too; maybe you ace a test you didn’t study for, luck your way into a promotion at work, or get away with running the only red light you’ve seen all day.

  These are stories of people who had the mother of the first type of day, and the grandmother of the second . . . on the same day. People who found themselves struck by the worst luck imaginable—only to turn it completely around, immediately, with the biggest breaks of their lives. Lives that may have been a lot shorter had they not.”

 

 

#9 The Convertible Van

9_truck-survives

 

 

” Motorist James Crawford’s 2012 incident falls squarely into the “funny only because nobody was seriously hurt” category. En route to work on the New Jersey Turnpike early one morning, James encountered an interloper on the highway—a gigantic, floating steel beam, being lifted by a nearby construction crane, which the crane operator had somehow allowed to drift into traffic. Before James even knew what was happening, there was a little extra ventilation in the car—that is, the beam ripped the entire top of the van off like a peel-back lid. In James’s words, “Everything was sawed off, but I was still there.”

  Although he did suffer a few cuts to his face and a broken thumb, James was none the worse for wear. Stunned tow truck drivers, who arrived on the scene to find James sitting nonchalantly on the guardrail, can attest to that. Said one, “I can’t believe he walked away . . . the entire passenger side and the roof were peeled off the van completely. It looks like a convertible.”

  The episode appears to have simply been a freak accident, in which stiff winds may have played a part. After investigations by state police and the construction company, no charges appear to have been filed in connection with the incident. James was out of the hospital by lunchtime the same day—and back at work the following week.”

A Look At The Most Common Causes Of Death By State

 

 

   Cancer and heart disease are the leading causes of death in all states as the author shows in another table , but he also provides numerous other maps showing deaths from other causes relating to each state . Interesting reading and certainly worth a bit of  your time

” Two months ago, I wrote about the fun and the pitfalls of viral maps, a feature that included 88 simple maps of my own creation. Since then I’ve written up a bunch of short items on some of those maps, walking through how they can both illustrate great information and hide important details. At one point, I said I was done with these. Well, I wasn’t. Here’s another, on death. Enjoy!

  The data used to create the table below are from a 2008 CDC report that’s based on numbers from 2005. Ideally, we’d have more up-to-date information, but their page on mortality tables indicates that there’s nothing more recent on state-by-state causes of death.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sudanese Death Sentence Woman To Be Freed Soon

 

Meriam Ibrahim and her husband Daniel Wani

 

 

Sudan appeared to be bowing to international pressure on Saturday night to free a woman sentenced to death for apostasy. A foreign ministry spokesman said that Meriam Ibrahim would be released and not face further charges.

But lawyers for 27-year-old Ms Ibrahim expressed skepticism that she would be freed so quickly.

“ It’s a statement to silence the international media,” said Elshareef Ali Mohammed. “This is what the government does. We will not believe that she is being freed until she walks out of the prison.”

  He said he had even heard reports that the spokesman was in the UK on medical leave when he told the BBC she would soon be freed.

“ If they were to release her, the announcement would come from the appeal court, and not from the ministry of foreign affairs. But at least it shows our campaign to free Meriam is rattling them. We must keep up the pressure.”

  The sentence, which was first reported in The Telegraph on the day that Judge Abbas Khalifa handed down his ruling, caused anger which has mushroomed into a global campaign to free her. In Sudan, abandoning Islam is a crime punishable by death.

  The mother of two, whose husband Daniel Wani has dual American-Sudanese citizenship, insists that she was raised as a Christian. She says her Muslim father abandoned the family when she was a child.

  Mark Simmonds, the Foreign Office’s Africa minister, said on Saturday that Britain was “putting intense pressure on the Sudanese government” to ensure her release.”

 

 

   Note that the pressure is coming from Britain and it’s leaders and not from our Muslim-apologist White House , even though the woman carries dual citizenship with the US and not the UK . 

 

 

” On Tuesday, Ms Ibrahim gave birth in prison to a daughter, Maya – her second child – which poured fuel on the fire of criticism. Mr Wani provoked an outcry when he told The Telegraph that his wife had been forced to give birth in a clinic in the prison, rather than in hospital, and with her legs still shackled.

  His comments were republished in the Sudanese daily Alyoum Altali newspaper, and clearly shook the government in Khartoum. “They wrote about how a campaign was starting in the UK, and talked about Western involvement to save her,” said Mr Elshareef. “They said that it was damaging the reputation of Sudan.”

  A day after the birth, the government sent in the reporters to justify Ms Ibrahim’s detention.

“ They interviewed a scholar, who goes into the prison to teach the women about Islam,” he said. “She also said that Meriam is a Muslim, because she is part of this campaign by some Islamists to claim that she committed apostasy. But everyone who knows Meriam knows that she is a Christian, and this is not true.”

California Judge Says Serial Rapist To Be Released

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Christopher Evans Hubbart, 63, must be released from a state facility by July 7, Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Gilbert Brown ruled.

  Hubbart will wear a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week GPS monitor on his ankle and will be accompanied by security people every time he goes out in public for the first six months to a year of his release, Lacey said. He will be transported to therapy sessions twice a week.

  Hubbart has acknowledged raping and assaulting about 40 women between 1971 and 1982, when he was sentenced to 16 years in prison. He got his nickname by using a pillowcase to muffle the screams of some victims.

  He was paroled in 1990, but arrested in a new attack just two months later and returned to prison until 1996.

  When his term ended, he was deemed a sexually violent predator and confined to a state mental hospital. Doctors at the hospital recently concluded he was fit for release, but few options were available. California laws bar sex offenders from living within 2,000 feet of schools and other places where children congregate, eliminating nearly all urban areas in the state.”

Everything Science Knows About Hangovers—And How To Cure Them

 

 

 

 

” The light coming in through the window is so … there. You’d kill for a glass of water but die if it came with food. Your guts are in full rebellion; whatever happens next is going to happen in the bathroom. You have at least a couple of the following symptoms: headache, malaise, diarrhea, loss of appetite, fatigue, nausea, the shakes. You might also be dehydrated and feel generally slow—a little stupider, a little less coordinated.

  You, my friend, have a hangover. And you can take heart in the fact that you’re not alone. Some 77 percent of all drinkers report suffering from them. (The scientific term for the other 23 percent is “jerks.”) But here’s the amazing part: The underlying cause of your suffering remains a mystery. “What causes a hangover? Nobody really knows,” says epidemiologist Jonathan Howland. “And what can you do about it? Nobody knows.”

  Alcohol has long been the only recreational drug for which scientists could not articulate a mechanism of action—which is to say, no one knew how it got you drunk, and no one knew how it got you hungover. And that’s weird. Because hangovers are a problem of vast proportions. By one estimate, hangovers cost $160 billion in lost revenue every year in the US alone. Yet for decades, even as scientists have written hundreds of thousands of articles about alcohol, only a tiny fraction of that attention—just a few hundred papers—have focused on the hangover. In fact, it wasn’t until the past decade or so that researchers even agreed to define hangover with a common group of symptoms.”

U.S. States Most And Least Likely To Survive The Zombie Apocalypse

 

zombie3

 

 

” Given the growing frequency with which zombies appear in movies, TV shows, and your worst nightmares, it’s inevitable the zombie apocalypse will soon be upon us. When it comes to surviving this inevitable showdown with the undead, location is everything. Do you live in a state populated with zealous zombie fighters capable of beating back hordes of brain-hungry walking dead? Estately answered this question with its Zombie Apocalypse Preparedness Rankings, which were determined using the 11 metrics below that measure fighting ability, knowledge of zombies, physical fitness, and access to weapons…

  Active Military Personnel: States with more soldiers per capita means states with more people who are physically fit, trained to fight, and have access to weapons (source).

  Military Veterans: Percentage of veterans per capita is a solid way of measuring fighting experience (source).

  Physically Active: States with residents who rarely get out of their Laz-E-Boy will not escape the zombie menace (source).

  Martial Arts Enthusiasts: Hand-to-hand combat is an important skill when the ammo runs out (source—percentage of Facebook users who listed “martial arts” as an interest).

  People with Survival Skills: In the long run, knowing how to survive without modern conveniences in a collapsed society will be critical (source—percentage of Facebook users who listed “survival skills” as an interest).

  People with Knowledge of Zombies: To know your enemy you must know their ways (source—percentage of Facebook users who listed “zombies, Resident Evil, Zombieland, and The Walking Dead” as interests).

  Laser Tag Enthusiasts: Yes, laser tag. Few things prepare you for a zombie attack in enclosed space (source—percentage of Facebook users who listed “laser tag” as an interest).

  People with Guns: Shooting a zombie in the head is really the best way to defeat a zombie, and to do that you need a gun (source).

  Obesity: The obesity epidemic will yield to the zombie epidemic because the obese will struggle with running away from zombies. It’s really very simple (source).

  Paintball Enthusiasts: Those who can slink around the woods unnoticed while splattering their enemies with paint will find success shooting zombies in nature (source—percentage of Facebook users who listed “paintball” as an interest).

  Triathletes: When everything breaks down, running, swimming, and bicycling will be ideal ways to escape zombies (source—percentage of Facebook users who listed “Ironman triathlon” as an interest).

” 42nd—MASSACHUSETTS

  Despite being physically fit, residents of Massachusetts are almost completely lacking in knowledge of zombies. Ignorance is not bliss, it’s very costly in a zombie apocalypse.

43rd—TENNESSEE

  The Tennessee Zombie Response Unit has its work cut out for it because the rest of state is ill prepared to battle the undead. Tennesseans should abandon their company softball teams and form paintball teams instead.

44th—LOUISIANA

  For Louisiana, the downside of letting the good times roll is it makes it very difficult outrun the living dead. Lack of physical fitness and limited knowledge of zombies dooms the great state of Louisiana… once it runs out of ammunition.

45th—ALABAMA

  Here’s a plan—Alabama confronts its obesity by training for the Alabama Biathalon. It’s a variation of the winter sport, but instead of cross-country skiing you just run around the woods with a gun shooting at everything. It’s like hunting season, but you can’t bring a 24-pack of beer.

46th—CONNECTICUT

  Residents of Connecticut should either begin playing laser tag or start seasoning themselves because if the zombie apocalypse started today they’d get eaten up as appetizers.

47th—GEORGIA

  Even though The Walking Dead is set in Georgia, residents there have little interest in zombies. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, the undead will discover Georgia brains are as sweet as Georgia peaches.

48th—NEW YORK

  If there were New York travel brochure for zombies it would tout the state’s lack of veterans, limited enthusiasm for survival skills, and scarcity of firearms.

49th—DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA

  Our nation’s capital has almost no knowledge of zombies, martial arts, or firearm ownership. It’s going to be an all-you-can-eat brain buffet for the zombies.

50th—MISSISSIPPI

M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-Die. Everybody is going to die. From zombies.

51st—NEW JERSEY

  If the zombie apocalypse began today, and you live in New Jersey, the odds are 100% that you’ve already been bitten and have become a zombie, unless you took a course from New Jersey’s own Zombie Survival Course. It’s real, and it could definitely save your life… even though they criticized our article (video proof).

No Words Left After Watching This .. Please Drive Safe ..

 

 

 

 

” After watching this i am sure you will have tears in your eyes … PLEASE DRIVE SAFE not only for you but for the people who love you … “

     This is one of the most horrifying videos I have ever seen . Real of fake is of no consequence when watches this because it is happening on a regular basis . It is very easy to take the convenience of the automobile for granted and in doing so leave ourselves open to becoming victims . Watch this and give pause the next time you and your loved ones get in the car .
