July 16, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: Story, WTF |

The body of a New Orleans teen killed two weeks ago in a shooting was dressed in his favorite basketball jersey and propped up in front of a TV with a video game controller in his hands for his unique memorial service. The family of Renard Matthews, 18, wanted to make sure the teen was surrounded by the things he loved when they said their final goodbyes to him so they re-created something he enjoyed doing: playing video games and watching the Boston Celtics on TV.

The teen’s body was placed in a chair, with his hands holding a Playstation controller and samplings of his favorite snacks, including a bag of Doritos, arranged next to him. He is wearing sunglasses, a Boston Celtics jersey, and on the television in front of him, his favorite basketball team.

Renard was killed two weeks ago during a shooting in his New Orleans neighborhood. He had been walking his new dog when he was shot and his cellphone was taken, according to his aunt.

An artist in the Philippines has been slammed on social media after devising a self-made mini electric chair to execute a cockroach that had the misfortune of flying into the artist’s window on a hot day.

According to his Facebook, Gabriel Co Tuazon, caught the flying insect in an old matchbox on Wednesday and decided to design and build a mini wooden chair and connect it to battery wires and a light bulb. He then videoed himself strapping the insect to the chair, placing a metal lid on its head and plugging in the wires sending an electric current through the tiny body of the insect – the roach writhing in pain as the current penetrated its body.

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

January 9, 2018 | 7 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.

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.
