Unarmed Black Teenager Survives Trip to Grocery Store
An unarmed black teenager in Arkansas survived a trip to his local grocery store this morning without getting shot by police.
According to a report by WARK news in Fayetteville, 17-year-old Anthony Smith walked two miles to the Marvin’s Food Store in his neighborhood and returned completely unharmed. The extraordinary tale shocked family and friends, and has since captivated the hearts of millions nationwide.
“I saw him come back with my own eyes. It was amazing,” says one of Anthony’s neighbors. “I thought he was a goner for sure when he decided to walk openly down the street. I listened for the gunshots. But they never came.”
No one was more pleased by Anthony’s incredible survival story than his mother. Josephine Smith, a 44-year-old hairdresser, sent her son on the dangerous quest and was elated at his unexpected return.
“My car broke down last week and we were running low on basic groceries,” she told the reporter. “So against my better judgement I asked Anthony to walk to the grocery store. I thought maybe I would never see him again. But I had no choice. The family needed food.
“I was shocked when he showed up on my doorstep with a grocery bag. As soon as he got inside I checked him for bullet wounds, just in case he had been shot without realizing it. But he was clean. I guess miracles do happen.”
He went down a narrow side canyon with perpendicular walls and ledges which got steeper and steeper. He came to a ledge with a twelve-foot drop-off into a pool of warm, fetid, murky water. There was no way to continue except by dropping into the pool. I hesitated. Beyond this point there could hardly be any returning, yet the main canyon was still not visible below. Obviously the only sensible thing to do was to turn back. I edged over the lip of stone and dropped feet first into the water.
Deeper than I expected. The warm, thick fluid came up and closed over my head as my feet touched the muck at the bottom. I had to swim to the farther side. And here I found myself on the verge of another drop-off, with one more huge bowl of green soup below. … Beyond the pool lay another edge, another drop-off into an unknown depth. Again I paused, and for a much longer time. But I no longer had the option of turning around and going back. I eased myself over the ledge and let go over everything except my faithful stick.
I hit rock bottom hard, but without any physical injury. I swam the stinking pond dog-paddle style, pushing the heavy scum away from my face, and crawled out on the far side to see what my fate was going to be.
Fatal. Death by starvation, slow and tedious. For I was looking straight down an overhanging cliff to a rubble pile of broken rocks eighty feet below.
Dozens of rock art sites in southern New Mexico, recently documented for the first time, are revealing unexpected botanical clues that archaeologists say may help unlock the meaning of the ancient abstract paintings.
'Get well' cards speeding the spread of Ebola, CDC warns
Washington - A new study by the Centers for Disease Control has found that the common "get well" card is the leading carrier of the deadly Ebola virus. The government health agency has issued emergency usage guidelines in response.
"Your typical get well card can become an Ebola factory when handled incorrectly," a masked CDC spokesperson. "You're fingering the card with your sweaty little hands. You're licking the envelope. You're applying a bodily fluid to the stamp. And before you know it, you've turned a simple message of hope into a death sentence."
The CDC was going to ban the use of all greeting cards. But it suddenly reversed itself, pointing out that the positive messages the cards provide might comfort those who could contract the disease, which at last count was everybody.
"With proper handling, greeting cards pose no health threat," the agency said. "Those who wish to distribute a get well device just need to follow a protocol which we have developed for their safety."
Protocol for Preparation and Personalization of an Analog Motivational Device
1. Acquire a hazmat head-to-toe safety suit.
2. Have a certified hazmat garment application professional fit you to the suit.
3. You left the get well card in your car. Remove the suit and go get it. Put the suit back on.
4. Sign the card.
5. Have your dog or cat lick the envelope and the stamp. Then remove your pet from your home and send it to a quarantine center where it will be kept for 21 days or until its demise, whichever comes first.
6. Remove your hazmat suit. If you're lucky, this will arouse your significant other and you will be rewarded for your good deed.
7. Disregard guideline number six. There is no reward, and you might as well leave the suit on in case someone sends you a get well card.
"A Kind of You" is a documentary work of an uncanny asian tradition, where monkeys are trained and dressed to act humanlike in order to ask money from the bypassers. Modern city culture has turned the old tradition in to eerie and haunting act of cruel street theatre where animals become something else, never able to reach our expectations.
What kind are you, why do I love you so?
What kind are you, yeah, yeah, when you love me no more?
What kind are you, why can't I let you go?
What kind are you?, I just can't satisfy
What kind are you?, oh yeah, no matter how I try...
An even more violent and ruthless terrorist group "Shazaam" released a video today calling ISIS members "Punks" and "Pussy Boys".
The twenty minute video showed the groups leader, tearing off the head of a captured ISIS fighter and then eating some of it before lighting it on fire and throwing it at a group of young children.
"ISIS is nothing but wannabes who are not the chosen ones" "We, Shazaam, are the chosen ones". "No one is more brutal then we" said the groups leader YaccaLacca Tommahawkaa.
Government forces say that Shazaam poses an even bigger threat than ISIS because they are well funded by secret donors and they also sell Amway products in over 100 countries.
"These guys are not to be messed with" said an US Agent who asked not to be identified. "I saw two of them tear a cat in half and stuff one have all the way down this guys throat and the other half all the way up his ass".
The coalition of the willing is now debating if they should bomb Shazaam or just sit this out. "We are kinda tired and The Walking Dead season premiere is in just a couple of weeks" said one government offical, "we cant do it all".
A new study published in the journal Nature has revealed that ancient paintings of hands and animals found within seven limestone caves on the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia, are as old as famous prehistoric art in Europe. The research shows that humans were producing rock art by 40,000 years ago at opposite ends of the Pleistocene Eurasian world.
