A Brazilian footballer staged his whole career for 24 years – he could barely kick a ball. One time he was forced to play as the team had no strikers. He was worried he would get exposed, so before the game he started a fight with a fan and as a result got sent off before the game even started

He returned to Brazil and started a career as a farce footballer since he “wanted to be a footballer, but did not want to play football”, becoming friends of many footballers so that he could have a big network to be recommended whenever he needed a new club. With a physical shape similar to professional footballers, but lacking skills, his fraud consisted of signing a short contract and stating that he was lacking match fitness so that he would spend the first weeks only with physical training where he could shine. At the time he went to train with other players, he would feign a hamstring injury and, by the lack of technology at the time, it was difficult to discover that it was a fake injury. He had a dentist to claim that he had focal infection whenever any club wanted to go further in the case. By doing these steps, he went on to stay a few months at the clubs just training and without ever exposing that he was a fraud footballer.

A Few Answers To Questions You Always Wondered About

What’s it like to be a prison sex-slave?

Soon after coming to Allred prison in Texas, Bret Ramos claimed me as his own. He told me I had two choices: I could submit, or I could die. Thus began my life as a prison sex slave.

What most people don’t understand is that rape in prison isn’t like it is on the outside. It’s not random or chaotic. It’s planned and methodical. It’s business. The gangs trade amongst themselves to determine who is going to be with whom. And other inmates didn’t dare touch me without clearing it first with my owner.

Ramos would rape me once, twice, sometimes three times a day. Then he would force me to clean his cell, make his bed, or cook food for him. Eventually he demanded that I have sex with his friends, who took to calling me “Coco.” When a different sex slave was badly beaten for refusing sex, he said the same thing would happen to me if I didn’t comply.

When I was finally transferred to a different cell block, I was told by Cliff Brown that he and his gang had “bought” me. That’s when the prostitution escalated. They made me perform sex with dozens of other inmates — white gangs, Mexican gangs, black gangs. Sometimes it was anal. Sometimes oral. Sometimes both. They did it in cells, in the shower, on the stairs. The going rate was five or ten dollars in commissary a fuck. Eventually I was moved to another building. Waiting for me there was La Brigada. At the next building it was the Akin Soldiers. Then the Ivory Kings.

Police catch a pigeon with 200 ecstasy pills hidden on its back

Authorities have caught a pigeon trying to smuggle 178 ecstasy pills from Iraq to Kuwait, in this little hand-stitched backpack. Using carrier pigeons as a way to smuggle drugs like cocaine and ecstasy across borders is being used more and more lately. That’s because of their ability to fly around 150km without stopping and being able to carry roughly 10 percent of their body weight.

Fascinating Photos Collected From History

German POWs forced to watch footage of concentration camps 1945

This forced process was part of the Allied policy of postwar denazification, meant to purge Germany of the remnants of Nazi rule and rebuild its civil society, infrastructure, and economy. The program included compulsory visits to nearby concentration camps, posters displaying dead bodies of prisoners hung in public places, and forcing German prisoners of war to view films documenting the Nazis’ treatment of “inferior” people.

The footage came from a newsreel shown in the US that was seen by millions and millions of people at the time. Seeing is believing. Often the only thing capable of denting humanity’s monumental ability to bunker down in a state of denial is indisputable, visual evidence. When cruel things take place on a massive and institutionalized scale behind closed doors and out of sight in societies, only jarring confrontation can shatter the delusions. If the ear won’t listen, tell it to the eye.

A guy upset with his then girlfriend for not properly mourning his father’s death hatched a plan to marry and conceive a child and then kill it later after the wife had bonded with it. He was convicted for murdering the 7 month old. (article)

He said it was revenge because Amy, before they were married, had refused to cut short a vacation trip to comfort him when his father died in 1996. “Shanabarger said he planned to make Amy feel the way he did when his father died. He married her, got her pregnant, allowed time for her to bond with the child, and then took his [boy’s] life,” according to an affidavit prosecutors filed to support a murder charge

The Story Of The Japanese Politician That Was Assassinated By A Samurai Sword

May 24, 2017 | No Comments » | Topics: Interesting |

IN 1960, Inejiro Asanuma — the head of Japan’s socialist party — was assassinated onstage during a live broadcast by 17 year old Otoya Yamaguchi, a Japanese ultranationalist. 

The photo was taken directly after Yamaguchi stabbed Asanuma and is seen here attempting a second stab though he is restrained before that happens. Inejiro Asanuma was leader of the socialist party in Japan. He was unusual in postwar Japan for his forceful advocacy of socialism, and his support of the Chinese Communist Party was particularly controversial.

In 1959, Asanuma had visited China and referred to the United States as “the shared enemy of China and Japan.” He then disembarked from the plane home wearing a suit styled after Chairman Mao Zedong — a bold fashion choice at a time when Mao’s People’s Republic of China was not recognized as legitimate in Japan.
