You Can Now Successfully Avoid Social Contact with ‘Human Uber’

February 6, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: Story |

Gig economy apps like TaskRabbit, Postmates and DoorDash have made paying a stranger to go out and run errands for you increasingly easy, and now the ultimate couch potato’s dream has come true: “ChameleonMask,” (Human Uber, on Twitter), a new technology in which someone straps a screen to their face and acts as your surrogate at events.

For all you so-called introverted extroverts out there, this situation is pretty ideal.

ChameleonMask hopes to provide people with human surrogates who would interact with the real world on the customer’s behalf. To do this, each surrogate would wear a screen on their head that displays the customer’s face and plays the customer’s voice. The service would theoretically allow you to attend parties and other social functions from the comfort of your bed, achieving something known as telepresence, while you give directions to your surrogate — even so far as telling them what to wear.

shop owner travels 500 miles to punch woman who left bad review

Business owners are very conscious when it comes to online reviews. It only takes a scathing review on social media to cast a shady reputation on a business. So it’s not surprising that this seller, who was identified as Zhang, took it very badly when a customer gave him a low rating – he took it so bad he travelled more than 500 miles just to meet and punch her! If there was a championship for overreacting, this guy most definitely would be the winner.

It all started when Xiao Li, a woman who loved shopping online, decided to order some clothes from an online shop, but later decided to write a complaint comment on the Taobao internet marketplace. The reason? Her order was delayed for four days.

Zhang, the shop owner, apparently became furious, because his ratings went down. He even threatened to murder his customer.

The Happiest Prisoner On Death Row

January 9, 2018 | 1 Comment » | Topics: Story |

Joe Arridy’s parents knew something was different about their son from a young age. Born on April 29, 1915 in Pueblo, Colorado, Joe had great difficulty in school and couldn’t understand a number of basic concepts. By the time he reached his late teens, he was admitted to Colorado State Home for Mental Defectives in Grand Junction, Colorado.

Because he had an IQ of just 46, the other boys at the mental home would often take advantage of him—and even beat him. Though they were troublemakers, he didn’t know better when he joined a few of them one day as they hopped a train that was passing by the home. They traveled for 24 hours all the way back to Pueblo.

Unfortunately, Joe would have no way of knowing about an incident that had shaken his hometown that same week. There’d been an attack on two teenage girls in their own home, in which someone raped and murdered a 15-year-old girl named Dorothy Drain with a hatchet. Her 12-year-old sister, Barbara, miraculously survived. Understandably, everyone in Pueblo was on edge, and they were hunting for the “perverted maniac” responsible. Sadly, this news didn’t bode well for Joe…

While the other boys from the mental home had returned from their train adventure, Joe ended up traveling alone all the way to Cheyenne, Wyoming—roughly 200 miles away from Pueblo. There, police found him and brought him in to Sheriff George Carroll, who suspected that Joe might be connected to the crimes in Pueblo. Following hours of interrogation, Joe ended up confessing to the attacks.

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.

Adult Film Star August Ames Commits Suicide After Being Bullied Online For Refusing To Have Sex With Gay Porn Actors

December 7, 2017 | 7 Comments » | Topics: main, Story |

August Ames, 23, who starred in more than 270 films and twice won at the Adult Video News Awards, was found dead Tuesday in California after hanging herself, authorities said.

The Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office on Thursday confirmed the cause of death as asphyxia due to hanging after notifying family members.

Ames was earlier this week branded a “homophobe” after revealing she had pulled out of an adult film after finding out her co-star was a “crossover” (men who had also appeared in gay pornography)

After posting her statements on Twitter, Ames was hit with a barrage of comments accusing her of anti-gay prejudice. She defended herself, pointing out that she liked women, and said she was merely making a decision about who she has sex with, noting it is “my body, my choice.”
