Via Tony Ortega’s Underground Bunker comes two videos featuring ex-Scientologists. The first is “Shit Scientologists Say to Outsiders” and the second is “Shit Scientologists Say to Each Other.”
Via The Presurfer:
British Astronomer Sir Patrick Moore interviews a man with a most remarkable gift.
Courtesy of the Modesty club, an organization started by a 15 year-old to combat the practice of “high school girls dressing immodestly.” With a hot rap track like this, a run on ankle-length woolen dresses and Mennonite-style bonnets is likely right around the corner.
A “socklifter” is on the loose in Japan according to France 24:
A Japanese high school girl who was tackled by a sock-stealing thief is the latest victim in a series of similar attacks against teenage targets, police said Friday.
The 16-year-old was walking in an eastern Tokyo suburb on Thursday when she was wrestled to the ground by a man who ripped a sock off her left foot and fled with the goods.
At least four other high school girls in the same neighbourhood have been victims of socklifters since September, police said.
The latest victim was not injured by the thief, who appeared to be in his thirties or forties. It remained unclear if the same man was responsible for all the incidents.
“In the third case, a man took the girl’s leggings off. In all the other cases, victims lost one of their socks,” said a local police officer.
I’ve quietly enjoyed the work of Buzz Coastin off-site for a while, so I thought I’d share one of his more recent works with my fellow Disinfonauts.
Via Absurdist Video Art:
BUZZ COASTIN is one of the most prolific online video makers who specializes in taking the unlimited library of internet video (ranging from vlogs, online news, porn, as well as a vast array of audio sources) and mashing them together into an absurdist smorgasburg of sight and sound revealing both the absurdity of the content which is created by others, and the new process of the artist whose paintbrush now only has to digitally dip into the overwhelming content which already exists.
Wake Up, Disinfo: It’s Time to Oxycise!
“Then one day, like Archimedes of old, it happened. In a physiology textbook there it was: fat oxidizes into carbon dioxide. Wait a second, I read that line again: fat oxidizes into carbon dioxide. No way! So you’re telling me that all I have to do is breathe to lose weight. I can’t believe no one has ever told me this before. Fat leaves my body through breathing??”
“I love him for the elegant lines of his gondola…”
ZOMBIES R SRS BSNS:
Via Raw Story: 26 year-old Jared Gurman shot his girlfriend in the back following an argument that began over the television program The Walking Dead. The wounded, Jessica Gelderman, had balked at Gurman’s assertion that it was important to prepare for a real zombie apocalypse. Gelderman suffered a pierced lung, pierced diaphragm and shattered rib, but survived the attack. Much of this season of The Walking Dead has occurred in and around a prison, so maybe Gurman’s likely incarceration will provide further training usable in the event of his feared zombie apocalypse.
My personal opinion is that it’s important in life to remind yourself that some things are not funny even if they might make you laugh. The story of a woman who got her sexy belly button ring stuck while swimming in a pool is a current example. Huffington Post reports the story, which is quite clearly not funny:
GREELEY, Colo. — Firefighters in Colorado say a woman’s belly button ring became entangled with a drain cover in a shallow splash pool but that she was freed without injury.
Authorities say the woman became stuck Wednesday as she floated on her stomach with her child in a shallow pool at the Greeley Family Funplex.
Firefighters tried to turn the ring to free her but then started to drain the pool while working to manipulate the ring.
They said Thursday that she eventually was freed and she wasn’t hurt in the process.
