Für die Meldung gibt’s mehrere Quellen, scheint also zu stimmen. Die Bewerbungen für den Darwin Award 2013 sind hiermit geschlossen. Der Spruch „Don’t fuck with Hornets!“ war noch nie so passend wie hier.
A man in Sweden has died after trying to have sex with a hornet’s nest on his farm outside Ystad. The 35-year-old, known only as Hasse, had 146 sting marks on his body, including 54 to his genitals, News Sweden said.
His body was found by a neighbour, who said Hasse was so swollen he initially mistook him for a whale carcass.
[update] Die Story ist ein Fake: „The original source for the story has now been traced to a satirical website in Sweden, which reported the stinging tale back in September, 2012.“
And then this happened:
Council bosses have been left mystified after reports that a portal to another dimension has opened in a residential street in Brighton.
A member of the public reported to Brighton and Hove City Council that the “wormhole or vortex” had opened up in Montreal Road, Hanover, on May 2. They made the report via the website Fix My Street which is more typically used to report potholes, dumped rubbish and broken lampposts.
The anonymous poster said: „I was recently walking my affenpinscher (a toy breed of dog) around the Hanover area of Brighton when I noticed that a wormhole or vortex has opened up on Montreal Road. On closer inspection it seems to be some kind of portal to other times, places and dimensions. I would have investigated further but I was concerned my little dog would be sucked into it.“
Brad and I were very excited to order a few of these delectable beauties in order to reenact the skinning and spitting-over-an-open-fire scene from Game of Thrones. Now, I hate to split hares, but…
First of all, it is NOT at all as easy as it looks in that scene. Meera and Osha made it look so simple. But both Brad and I pulling together couldn’t get that damn skin off. The rabbit wound up looking more like Theon Greyjoy’s finger than a rabbit. Second, apparently you cannot light an open fire in your backyard in Los Angeles. No one told us that. Thanks, LAFD, for understanding. Third, it pretty much tastes like chicken.

Vor einem Jahr bloggte ich über das Tumblr One Tiny Hand, normalerweise gibt’s solche Blogs für zwei oder drei Wochen, dann verlieren die Leute meistens die Lust. One Tiny Hand verpasst jetzt seit einem Jahr Promis seltsame, kleine Hände und Audrey Hepburns Tiny Hand musste ich mir unbedingt hier reinkleben weil Audrey.

Ein brasilianischer Fischer hat sich eine Harpune durchs Auge ins Gehirn geschossen. Dann ist er nach Hause gegangen und am nächsten Tag erst, auf Anraten eines Verwandten, ging er zum Arzt. Dem Mann geht’s den Umständen entsprechend gut.
Bruno Barcellos de Souza Coutinho, 34, was cleaning fishing equipment in the city of Petropolis when the speargun accidentally fired and lodged 15 centimetres into his head, through his left eye and deep into his brain.
However, he did not seek medical attention until the next day when a relative encouraged him to go to hospital.

A 19-year-old man presented to our ophthalmology clinic with a mass in his right eye that had been present since birth but had gradually increased in size. He did not have pain, but the mass caused vision defects, mild discomfort on blinking, and the intermittent sensation of the presence of a foreign body. Physical examination revealed a white, ovoid mass, 5 mm by 6 mm, that straddled the inferotemporal limbus (Panel A), with several black hairs (Panel B). Visual acuity was 20/20 in the left eye and 20/60 in the right eye. Intraocular pressure was normal… The lesion was excised, and lamellar keratoplasty was performed for cosmetic reasons. Pathological findings confirmed the diagnosis of limbal dermoid. As expected, there was little improvement in visual acuity after surgery because of the amblyopia and induced astigmatism.

Kohens are prohibited from flying over cemeteries (“A kohen initially was not supposed to approach any dead body, and if he did so he became ritually impure”), which as you can imagine, could be a major problem for travel. According to Haaretz, Rabbi Yosef Shalom Eliashiv, the leader of the Lithuanian Haredi community in Israel, “found a solution to this issue, ruling that wrapping oneself in thick plastic bags while the plane crossed over the cemetery is permissible.”
Vor ein paar Monaten bloggte ich über einen Herren, der sich einen Aal rektal einführte und nicht mehr rausbekam. Und weil die Menschheit nicht dazulernt, blogge ich heute über einen weiteren Herrn aus China mit Aal im Arsch. Der hat sich dann in seinen Darm vorgearbeitet und hat den angeknabbert. Als sie das Tier aus dem Hinterteil gezogen haben, war er noch am Leben.
The adult eel — which measured 50cm (20″) and weighed about 600g (1.3 lbs) — proceeded into the man’s colon and punctured it, requiring the man to be rushed to hospital for emergency surgery.
In a surgery that took all night to perform, the eel was successfully removed from the colon. According to the blog it was still breathing when it was extracted. The man is currently recovering in hospital. There is no word on the fate of the eel.
In Bad Hersfeld haben sie 5 Tonnen Nutella von einem Lastwagen geklaut, die Polizei hat noch keine Spur, ich hab’ da allerdings eine Theorie – siehe Video oben.
Thieves in Germany have made off with a truckload of Nutella, stealing five tonnes of the hazelnut chocolate spread from a parked semi-trailer, police said on Monday. The theft of seven palettes of Nutella jars, worth a total of about 16,000 euros ($20,800), took place at the weekend in the city of Niederaula in the central state of Hessen, said police.
