The Story Of Hisashi Ouchi, A Victim of Fatal Radiation Kept Alive for 83 Days Against His Will

January 9, 2018 | 4 Comments » | Topics: Story, WTF |

Hisashi Ouchi was one of the technicians working at a facility operated by JCO (formerly Japanese Nuclear Fuel Conversion Co.) in Tokai of Ibaraki Perfecture. He is one of the two fatalities of Tokaimura nuclear accident that exposed him to, perhaps, the highest amount of radiation any human had exposed so far. The ethical value of his prolonged treatment and efforts to keep him alive, that lasted for almost three months despite his wishes and the pain he had to endure, was questioned and the efforts received criticism.

The accident occurred on September 30, 1999, when Hisashi Ouchi and two of his colleagues added a seventh bucket of aqueous uranyl nitrate solution to a precipitation tank. Upon adding, the tank reached critical stage and went into a self-sustaining nuclear fission chain reaction releasing intense gamma and neutron radiation. 

During the accident, Ouchi was exposed to 17 sieverts of radiation with 8 sieverts being normally considered fatal and 50milli sieverts being the maximum limit of annual dose allowed for Japanese nuclear workers.

There comes a time in every man’s life where he decides that having sex with 1000 cars does not give him the emotional fulfilment he so desires. This is what Edward Smith, 63, realized after giving up his lothario ways and committing to his one true love; Vanilla, a Volkswagen Beetle. Sure, he had his fun; by his own estimate he’s given over 1000 cars a good rogering over the past 48 years. But Vanilla’s seductive alabaster exterior and voluptuous curves blew away all of the competition.

The Most Horrifying Thing You Will Ever Read: The 2011 San Fernando Massacre

December 5, 2017 | 7 Comments » | Topics: Hall Of Fame, Story, WTF |

The bus of the ADO line was making its regular stop in the city of San Fernando, Tamaulipas on a destination to Reynosa. They arrived at the terminal unloading two people and boarding four, making a total of 15 passengers onboard the bus. The bus departed the terminal to follow the route; it was 8:30 in the evening of March 25, 2011. They quickly left the small village as they did not want to become victims of the criminals who operate in the city, however, that night would be the last they would fear, because they were already sitting in wait for them.

The streets in San Fernando empty at about 6 pm. The small town is a ghost town after dark, no one leaves their homes, and everyone protects themselves for fear of Los Zetas. Only the luxurious SUVs are seen travelling through the empty streets, no one wants to run into them.

The bus was just leaving the village when the driver saw a truck in the distance blocking the middle of the road and hooded men wielding AR-15s, at that moment he knew that all was over. The armed men ordered him to stop the bus; the driver was forced to stop. The men approached the bus pointing their long guns and shouting; “Open the door motherfucker, move it son of a bitch if you don’t want me to shoot you in the fucking head.” Shaking the driver opened the door of the bus, and instantly the armed men boarded the bus, one of them struck the driver on the face with his rifle while the others went inside shouting at the passengers, “You all just got fucked mother fuckers.” The passengers on board were terrified, the women were crying while the children were hugging their parents, and also crying. Everyone was in panic, they thought it was just a robbery, but it was not.

The Story Of Omayra Sanchez And Her Final 60 Hours Of Agony After Being Trapped Beneath A Volcanic Mudflow

November 29, 2017 | 5 Comments » | Topics: WTF |

On November 13, 1985, the Nevado del Ruiz volcano erupted. Pyroclastic flows exploding from the crater melted the mountain’s icecap, forming lahars (volcanic mudflows and debris flows) which cascaded into river valleys below. One lahar, consisting of three pulses, did most of the damage. Traveling at 6 meters (20 ft) per second, the first pulse enveloped most of the town of Armero, killing up to 20,000 people; the two later pulses weakened buildings. Another lahar killed 1,800 people in nearby Chinchiná. In total 23,000 people were killed and 13 villages in addition to Armero were destroyed.

Omayra Sánchez was a little 13 year old girl who lived in Armero when the “Nevado del Ruíz” erupted. When the lahar destroyed her house, her father and aunt died inside. She was able to survive the lahar, but when rescue teams tried to help her, they realized that her legs were trapped under her house’s roof. Once the girl was freed from the waist up, her rescuers attempted to pull her out, but found the task impossible without breaking her legs in the process. Rescue workers placed a tire around her body to avoid her to drown. Divers discovered that Sánchez’s legs were caught under a door made of bricks, with her aunt’s body under her feet.

Neo-Nazi Furries Are Now A Thing

November 28, 2017 | 2 Comments » | Topics: Story, WTF |

FURRIES are no stranger to controversy, with members often labelled as perverse fetishists for dressing up in animal costumes, which dictate their role-playing “fursona”

Members of the obscure subculture often defend themselves by saying their celebration of anthropomorphic animal characters with human personalities and characteristics is nothing more than playful escapism.

While defending their community from outsider criticism is nothing new, there is now a fresh threat to the culture coming from within its own ranks.

It appears subculture, which has long been associated with gay and left-wing beliefs, is now being infiltrated by right-wing extremists known as “alt-furries”.

The alt-furry movement started as a joke on Twitter, with right-leaning members sharing pro-Trump, furry-themed memes using the #AltFurries hashtag.

What started as the promotion of satirical policies such as a ban on “species mixing”, soon became much more serious as the white supremacist agenda started to creep into real world furry events.
