BOY NEARLY DECAPITATED WHILE USING THIS POPULAR CELL PHONE ACCESSORY

By: Kate Anslinger16-year-old Bradley Willoughby from Queensland, Australia, was nearly decapitated by the most unlikely of cell phone accessories while motorbiking on his parents’ farm.Even though he had taken all the standard precautions, such as a sturdy bike helmet, he had overlooked a threat that most people are completely unaware of.Beneath his helmet was a pair of corded earbuds—typical, everyday ones like these:As he sped through the turf on his motorbike, he awkwardly landed a jump, skidded, and drove right into a barbed wire fence—dislocating and breaking his ankle, and causing a gash on his belly:But that was the least of his injuries.Upon impact, since his earbuds were secured under his helmet, they didn’t pop off, and instead the rubber coating on the earbuds’ chords were pulled off, revealing the sturdy copper wires within.It was these copper wires that, upon impact, placed so much pressure on Bradley’s neck that he was nearly decapitated, as you can see in this graphic photo:According to the boy’s father, who removed the chords from his son while waiting for paramedics to arrive, the copper wires were deep, but narrowly missed his trachea.Although Bradley and his parents are relieved that he will survive and recover, they are sending out a strong warning to other parents:“Do not wear wired earphones under a motorbike helmet,” said Bradley’s mom, “It’s potentially life-threatening.”Luckily, there are some easy alternatives to this earbud danger, including the use of wireless bluetooth versions that don’t pose the risk of being choked or strangled by the cords. Better yet, don’t listen to music while riding. It is safer to have all your senses focused on what is going on.Sources: AWM Via: davidwolfe.com

Well, before Rose and Jack dashed off to ruin the upholstery of a Model T, they had a good ol' time partying it up with all of Jack's friends, including one VERY ADORABLE little girl named Cora.

That face!!!

They slit the thrashing animal’s throat and then picked up a metal bar. What for? I’m never buying this stuff again.

Warning: This video contains images that some viewers may find disturbing.The animal protection organization PETA has for years denounced the torture of crocodiles on a leather farm in Vietnam. Now they've produced a shocking video showing the brutal extent of the cruelty to these creatures, whom we may fear in the wild but who live here in helpless captivity.If you want to help stop the torture of these crocodiles (and many other animals), you can support PETA by writing to Bernard Arnault. He's the majority shareholder of the fashion companies Christian Dior and Louis Vuitton, which are responsible for a large part of the demand for crocodile skin. He's therefore in a position to demand that they stop being exploited and treated so brutally. PETA prepared a petition you can sign to speak out against this cruel treatment of animals.But more importantly, it's a real wake-up call for all of us to think about where our products come from, how they're manufactured, and who might be being harmed along the way!Source: playgroundmag.net, de.wikipedia.org,via:

Defective pressure cooker scalds a couple with hot soup

WARNING: This article contains images that some readers may find disturbing.Cassie Hodges is the mother of three children and lives near Sydney, Australia. One Friday evening, her partner Mark had been preparing a homemade soup for dinner but as he had started late on the task, he opted to use their Casera-brand pressure cooker to save time.He had selected the soup option on the settings menu and walked away. About 25 minutes later, Cassie came into the kitchen holding her 12-week old son and noticed that the soup was ready. She called to Mark to let him know and took the baby in the lounge. While the final dinner prep was underway, she told her daughters to come to the table. With Cassie standing by to help carry bowls to the table, Mark pushed the pressure release button on the pressure cooker and — as normal — steam began to escape. But then there was a loud click — something definitely not normal — and before she knew it, Cassie was hit by the top of the pressure cooker as it blew off the top of the machine. At the same time, she was suddenly covered in scalding hot soup. Although Mark had also been scalded on his arm and stomach, Cassie's situation was more urgent, so, ripping off her clothes, she ran to the shower to get under the cold water as quickly as possible. Mark and Cassie called emergency services and were taken by ambulance to the hospital. Cassie had extensive and severe burns on her arms, chest and abdomen.Reporting the incident on Facebook as a warning to others, Cassie described what happened next: "I was told I had to have all my dead burnt skin removed by scraping with a rough towel and biobrane (a pig skin/fat tissue) applied immediately, with just endone and panadol I went ahead, I have never felt such pain in my life. They then bandaged me up and now day 4 I'm laying in bed knowing It will be yet another painful night."Mark's burns covered less of his body, but because he was not able to get under the cold water as Cassie had, they were also deep and very painful.As she was unable to take care of the children while in the hospital, one of Cassie's friends stepped in and looked after them.Cassie feels grateful for one thing: that the accident happened after she had taken her baby out of the room. There's no telling the extent of the tragedy that could have occurred had the infant been there when the cooker exploded.She wants to warn others who might have the same brand of pressure cooker in their home. "I want the one I used recalled and I want people to be aware of the dangers, we did nothing wrong the machine unlocked prematurely, it should stay locked and unable to be opened until the pressure is all gone. Please share this far and wide and throw your cookers out, or better yet, demand a refund… I want to make sure this never happens to anyone ever again."Cassie's post was widely shared on social media. Hopefully her warning will help prevent a similar or even worse tragedy from occurring again. Source: Feroce, Daily Telegraph, Facebook ,via:

Man Who Has Been In Prison For 63 Years, Rejects Parole. Gives Reason No One Saw Coming

After serving 63 years for a crime he claims he did not commit, a Pennsylvania man is turning down the opportunity to be paroled from prison on principle. He claims he is innocent and should never have been convicted in the first place.Convicted for the 1953 murders of two people at the age of 15, the man has maintained his innocence for more than half a century. You have to hear his story.Seventy nine year old Joseph Ligon, was fifteen years old when he was tried and convicted for the stabbing deaths of Charles Pitts and Jackson Hamm. Five other youths were also charged.The deaths were the result of a gang brawl. Developmentally disabled, he admitted he had been part of the melee, but did not stab the two youths who were killed, and he has maintained his innocence throughout his ordeal.All of the other defendants in the case have either passed away or have been released from prison already.In 2010, Ligon spoke with local papers about his life behind bars, saying “I’ve been able to deal with this situation because, in my mind and in my heart, I didn’t kill somebody. If I had, that would have worried me to death. There’s no way I could have done that and survived in here.”The opportunity for parole has been presented to him due to a U.S. Supreme Court ruling at the beginning of this year that sentencing juveniles to life in prison was unconstitutional and that they should have the possibility of parole. Some 300 prisoners in Pennsylvania are eligible for resentencing now and many are being given a second chance, however Ligon and three other men have refused agreement that would immediately make them eligible for parole.Speaking before the court last week, Bradley Bridge of the Defender Association of Philadelphia said “His view is, he’s been in long enough. He doesn’t want to be on probation or parole. He just wants to be released.”At Seventy Nine years old, Ligon is considered to be the longest-serving juvenile lifer in the world.Now that his story has become public, many people have taken to social media to express their thoughts for him, saying things like:“Now he is 79 years old and turned down the possibility of parole and has held to his claim of innocence. You may call him institutionalize but I say this is a man with nothing in this world but his innocence. His time on this Earth is nearly over and he is making his stand. Freedom is not what Mr. Joes Ligon is after. He wants admission of his innocence from the courts and the state and he is willing to die in jail if he has too.”- Clifford Harris“Mr. Ligon sometimes when they take every damn thing from you, it makes you hold on even tighter to the things they can’t take. Your integrity, your heart, you soul etc. Keep your head up Joseph, you still look like that 15 year old young man! That is the truth in you!”- Jack Wells“ If he does not want to leave, at least let church groups come and get him for the day, and bring him back to his cell. That is, if he would like doing that. Maybe he could enjoy some of what is left of his life on earth.”- Michael EhrhartIt is just a sad situation all the way around. at 15, I doubt he had any trade skills and I doubt he learned much in prison other than to survive. he has nothing in the outside world for him, the system took his soul and any dignity this man has a long time ago.”- Brian DeboweyIs it time for a special hearing to go back and look at this man’s conviction to determine if he was treated fairly?

When this man’s feet and hands started to rot, doctors knew it could be only one thing. No one could believe that this ancient killer was still around.

In November 2002, John Tull from Sante Fe County, New Mexico, went on vacation to New York with his wife. While they were there he began to feel very ill and went to see a doctor. At first John’s symptoms were confusing, but on a hunch the doctor performed some tests and the results shocked everyone. It turned out that John was suffering from a disease that most people only know from history books — the bubonic plague!YouTube/Truth to LifeUnfortunately, John’s diagnosis came late and the disease had already reached an advanced stage — his extremities had already started to turn black. His doctors decided to take drastic measures to save his life and put him in a medically induced coma for 90 days. John survived, but when he awoke from his coma, he was missing both of his legs. As far as experts could deduce, John had probably contracted the deadly disease from a flea bite while at home in rural New Mexico. Although the plague still only lives on in a few very isolated areas in the US, this state is one of them.YouTube/Truth to LifeBut the bubonic plague is not restricted to New Mexico, or the United Sates for that matter. The horrible disease that killed an estimated 200 million people in the 14th century is still taking lives to this very day. Every year isolated cases are reported throughout the world, and in Africa there have actually been small outbreaks. Between 2010 and 2015, there were 519 deadly cases of bubonic plague, and in that same time period, another 14 people in North and South America fell victim to the disease. Meanwhile, the actual number of infections worldwide is much higher, but these days, thanks to early diagnosis and effective antibiotics, the majority of cases are not fatal.YouTube/Truth to LifeJohn Tull was one of the lucky ones. Although he lost his legs, he survived this horrible disease and lived for another ten years. In 2014, at the age of 65, he died of cancer.You can find out more about bubonic plague and John’s life and death struggle with it in this video: Source:YouTube Center for Disease Control World Health Organization,credit:http://www.hefty.co/

Those individuals were charged with felony rioting – which could potentially land them in jail for up to 10 years and see them paying a $25,000 fine.Right before the inaugural parade began, riot police and protesters began to clash and fights soon broke out. People subsequently started breaking into stores and looting, smashing cars and even setting a limo on fire."Groups of people started gathering around the limo. There was a sense of something going to happen. People were shouting 'it's going to blow'. We tried to move them back," Daily Mail reporter Katie Hopkins told the site."The inauguration parade for the president is just blocks away from where all this is happening."SWAT police moved into the area and started pepper spraying rioters, which led to the arrest of 217 people initially. Those people were kept overnight and then appeared before a judge."The charge is rioting, police chief Peter Newsham told reporters. "Our intention going into this event was to make zero arrests, and unfortunately they forced our hand."Many readers applauded Washington, D.C. police for arresting the rioters."I am so happy to hear these scum bags are finally becoming accountable – leave them in jail and charge them to the highest. start reparation by laving these thugs clean up the mess they made," one Mad World News reader commented on the site's Facebook page."This lawlessness CANNOT be allowed to continue! The former administration looked the other way and actually condoned this type of behavior. America needs to get back on the lawful track and severely punishing these thugs will be a great start!" another added.Others criticized former President Barack Obama for failing to penalize rioters in the past."This lawlessness CANNOT be allowed to continue! The former administration looked the other way and actually condoned this type of behavior. America needs to get back on the lawful track and severely punishing these thugs will be a great start!" one reader wrote.This just shows that we are on the right path hell yes they are pissed off the days of free rides everyone Gets a trophy, no child left behind are just about over Its time to earn your own keep if you can't do that well so be it you will cease to exist !!!" another added.Sources; Daily Mail, Mad World News/Facebook / Photo credit: Wikimedia Commons, Daily Mail ,credit:http://www.americanow.com

The man put a hidden camera in his daughter’s room. What her doll did at 0:31 made his blood run cold.

Sometimes old houses make strange noises. No one can really explain where they come from, but many people pass them off as "just the wind" or think that the house is just "settling." But when objects start moving around seemingly on their own, the explanations get a bit trickier. Was it just the wind that blew the paper off the desk? Did that doll move because the batteries weren't dead after all? Or are there really such things as ghosts?The father of this family prefers the paranormal explanation for what's been going on in his home and even made some videos as evidence…Pretty spooky stuff! But what do you think? Is there really something to this, or is the father just having some fun with his homemade special effects?Source:Youtube, via:

Teenage Father Shoots 3-Year-Old In The Head, Kills Him For One Simple Reason

A Texas man is facing charges after he killed his 3-year-old stepson who was jumping on the bed.An emergency 911 call placed from a trailer park in Clay County, Texas, said a 3-year-old child had been shot in the head and was thought to be dead, according to KDFX.Witnesses told authorities the child, Dominic Castro, was jumping on a bed with a loaded gun on it, causing it to accidentally discharge, The Dallas Morning News reports.On further investigation, it was revealed that Dominic’s 18-year-old stepfather, George Coty Wayman, threatened to shoot the boy if he did not stop jumping on the bed.Wayman pointed the gun at the boy and fired a shot, according to officials.

Mom warns about the hidden danger of scented candles

One day recently, young New Jersey mother Meghan Budden saw little black specks on the tissue after she blew her nose. Then she found similar specks in her baby’s nose while she was breastfeeding. Where could they have come from? YouTube/ CBS New YorkShe went back over everything they’d done in the last few hours and days, and where they’d been. And she didn’t have to look far, just over on the countertop nearby. The previous night Meghan had lit some scented candles and left them burning for six hours. She found the package they’d come in and read the fine print. There it was: a warning from the candle manufacturer that the candles should be left lit for no more than three hours at a time. When burning longer, they begin to produce soot. Soot might just sound like a little dust, but it’s one of the chemicals at the root of asthma, chronic bronchitis, hereditary coronary disease, and other respiratory problems. According to industrial safety studies, soot is thought to cause 20,000 premature deaths a year in the U.S. alone, not to mention 300,000 asthma attacks.YouTube/ CBS New YorkIf Meghan hadn’t noticed the specks and figured out where they came from, eventually she and her baby would have been in danger. They might not have noticed tomorrow or next week, but the damage adds up and causes serious harm long-term.It’s a great reminder to read instructions and fine print, even when we think we can’t possibly need them.It turns out there’s also a way to avoid soot from candles: cut the wick short, 0.1 to 0.25 of an inch, and don't leave candles burning in a place with drafts. And of course, if you notice black smoke or soot, blow out the candle right away. Good to know!YouTube/ CBS New YorkWatch Meghan tell the story herself in this video report:Source: Little Things , credit:http://www.hefty.co/

BREAKING – John McCain ADMITS He Leaked Fake Trump Docs. Should He Resign?

There were a lot of mistakes made surrounding the fake Trump story the media recently got their hands on. The biggest mistake might have been John McCain’s.In a statement on his website, McCain has revealed that he did leak the fake Trump documents, as many suspected. This betrayal is disgusting! I think he should resign! View image on Twitter FollowKyle Griffin ✔@kylegriffin1John McCain just acknowledged that he gave the Trump dossier to the FBI late last year:7:44 PM – 11 Jan 2017 · Brooklyn, NY 1,0151,015 Retweets 932932 likes It turns out that this huge betrayal has been brewing for a year.To excuse himself, McCain offered the line, “unable to verify the information myself.” Certainly, if you find a matter of national security, anyone and everyone in this nation should pass it along to the proper authorities, but let’s not waste our time, and the FBI’s time, with idle gossip.The allegations against Trump, originally released to the public by Buzzfeed, are absolutely ludicrous. How could a sensible person take them seriously, never mind seriously enough to pass along to the FBI? Or is the FBI always inundated with outlandish sex scandals?Carl Bernstein, the reporter who broke Watergate, was involved in the transfer of this rumor from one organization to the other. He alleges McCain’s involvement went a little deeper than the senator is letting on, as per Biz Pac Review.Bernstein told CNN, “a former British ambassador to Russia independently was made aware of these findings, and he took the information to John McCain…McCain was sufficiently disturbed by what he read to take it to FBI Director James Comey himself personally, they had a five-minute meeting.”Of course, Bernstein tried to downplay McCain’s handing of the information to Director Comey himself, saying the meeting was brief. However, the direct nature of McCain’s actions hints that he felt deeply that this matter needed serious attention.It certainly didn’t deserve that level of attention. The intelligence community is now back-tracking, with some sources telling CNN that the allegations against Trump were included to alert the president-elect such rumors about him were circulating. It seems the only people still talking to CNN are those who have some explaining to do!What do you think of McCain’s admission of guilt?

Utah Mom Arrested For Locking Son In Bathroom For A Year

A Utah woman has been arrested after police discovered her son locked in the bathroom, where she had kept him prisoner for over a year.KSTU reports that 36-year-old Brandy K. Jaynes of Toquerville, Utah, has been arrested on aggravated felony child abuse charges. Jaynes allegedly locked one of her children, a 12-year-old-boy, in an upstairs bathroom at their home for over a year.Police said the boy's father found him weighing only 30 pounds. They said he was so malnourished he couldn't even stand up. Washington County Lt. David Crouse said, “The child looked like he was the victim of a concentration camp from World War II.”Investigators discovered that the bathroom had two locks, including one that allowed it to be locked from the outside. They found a single blanket, feces scattered across the room, empty cans of beans, and a camera that could monitor the boy's activity from outside the room.Police believe Jaynes used the camera to observe the boy from an app on her cell phone.All of the lights in the bathroom were off, and covered with duct tape.Two other children were reportedly removed from the home, both of whom were siblings of the abused boy. However, neither of them needed medical treatment. The abused boy is expected to be in the hospital for at least three weeks. According to the New York Daily News, the doctor who treated the boy deemed his situation the worst case of malnourishment he had ever seen.Jaynes claims that she locked her son in the bathroom because he liked to sleep in there, and that it was "for his safety when she would leave the house."Sources: KSTU, New York Daily News / Photo credit: KSTU,h/t http://www.opposingviews.com
