My mom is a Schizophrenic with Hypergraphia (compulsive writing)
She thinks the pages she writes will save the world and expose a vast conspiracy run by Dick Cheney, Ralph Nader, Tom Brokaw and….Peter Jennings. I’ve been taking care of her since I was 12 years old. I’ve been dealing with this for 17 years. This is what her writing looks like on a really bad day.
Las Vegas police are currently on the hunt for MMA fighter and all around scumbag Jonathan Koppenhaver, AKA War Machine, for allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend, porn star Christy Mack. According to the horrific account tweeted out by Mack on Monday, Koppenhaver came to her house uninvited, assaulted her houseguest, and then proceeded to assault her with his fists and a knife. She was able to escape and receive help from one of her neighbors, and now Koppenhaver is on the run from the authorities.
Christy Mack tweeted her account of the altercation:
At about 2 am Friday morning, Jon Koppenhaver arrived unannounced to my home in Las Vegas, NV, after he broke up with me in May, he moved out of my house and back to San Diego. When he arrived, he found myself and one other fully clothed and unarmed in the house. Without a single word spoken, he began beating my friend; once he finished, he sent my friend away and turned his attention to me. He made me undress and shower in front of him, then dragged me out and beat my face. I have no recollection of how many times I was hit, I just know my injuries that resulted from my beating.
My injuries include 18 broken bones around me eye, my nose is broken in 2 places, I am missing teeth and several more are broken. I an unable to chew, or see out of my left eye, My speech is slurred from my swelling and lack of teeth. I have a fractured rib and a severely ruptured liver from a kick to my side. My leg is so badly injured I have not been able to walk on my own. I also attained several lesions from a knife he got from my kitchen. He pushed the knife into me in some areas such as my hand, ear, and head, He also sawed much of my hair off with this dull knife.
After some time, the knife broke off of the handle and continued to threaten me with the blade. I believe I was going to die. He has beaten me many times before, but never this badly. He took my phone and canceled all my plans for the following week to make sure no one would worry about my whereabouts. He told me he was going to rape me, but was disappointed in himself when he could not get hard. After another hit or two, he left me on the floor bleeding and shaking, holding my side from the pain of my rib. He left the room and went to the kitchen where I could hear him ruffling through my drawers.
Assuming he was finding a sharper, more stable knife to end my life, I ran out my back door, shutting it me so the dogs didn’t run inside to tip him off. I hopped the fence to the golf course behind my house and ran to a neighboring house. Naked and afraid he would catch me , I kept running through the neighborhood knocking on doors. Finally, one answered and I was brought to the hospital and treated for my injuries.
The new report by the United Nations’ Human Rights Council is nearly 400 pages of horrifying detail about North Korea’s systematic "crimes of extermination, murder, enslavement, torture, rape and persecution on grounds of race, religion and gender." Based on interviews with hundreds of witnesses and victims, it’s dense, disturbing reading. But in case the firsthand accounts aren’t affecting enough, one former prisoner, Kim Kwang-il, who spent two years in a prison in North Korea, enlisted an illustrator to draw the torture he witnessed.

This weekend, tech journalist Ryan Block attempted to cancel his Comcast subscription over the phone. Instead of a quick hello and goodbye, the conversation turned into a harrowing, 18-minute customer service odyssey, with the company rep refusing again and again to disconnect Block’s service without an explanation. The guy sounds like a soon-to-be ex desperately trying to fend off a breakup. This is extremely painful to listen to and might induce a PTSD fit of rage, you have been warned!
