A Texas man was sentenced to 52 years in prison on Friday after he admitted to decapitating his wife in front of her children.

Police found Dauzat with blood on his clothing at the trailer. Dauzat had beheaded his wife while the two children, ages 1 and 2, were in the trailer. He then placed her head in the freezer.

George Zimmerman, who was acquitted of murder and manslaughter charges in the killing of Trayvon Martin, is reportedly feuding with two rap stars after reportedly threatening Jay-Z over an upcoming documentary.

The Blast, a celebrity gossip site, reported that Zimmerman said he would feed Jay-Z to an “alligator” over a production team harassing his family in Florida. The site reported that Jay-Z is producing a documentary on the 2012 killing.

“I know how to handle people who f---k with me,” he reportedly told the site. “I have since February 2012.”

Zimmerman reportedly did not go into details about the alleged harassment, but the threat prompted Snoop Dogg to post on Instagram, “If one hair on Jays hair is touched that’s when the revolution will b (sic) televised.”

A London “rage room” is offering people who are not having a holly jolly Christmas the chance to bash away, bash away, bash away all the symbols of the season.

For the equivalent of about $24, visitors donned a red jumpsuit and hard hat, grabbed a baseball bat and wreathed havoc by smashing trees and ornaments for three minutes in Rudolph’s Rage Room.


Rage rooms have been popping up around the world, allowing people to spend a few minutes in the not-so-gentle release of smashing everything they hate, such as office paraphernalia or kitchens.

"Paul Ryan Slits Auto Mechanic’s Throat To Kick Off GOP Purge Of Working Class"
[Onion News in Brief]
http://pol...oat-to-kick-off-gop-1821475569
"WASHINGTON—Grinning proudly as blood gushed from his victim’s windpipe, House Speaker Paul Ryan reportedly slit an auto mechanic’s throat Wednesday to kick off the GOP purge of the working class. “With our tax reform bill giving us the mandate we have long desired, there’s nothing stopping us now—commence the bloodletting!” said Ryan, holding up the lifeless body of the local blue-collar worker as blood from his severed arteries sprayed reporters gathered at the press conference. “Now we can finally experience the sweet release of all our pent-up hatred of the parasitic working class without fear of punishment or retribution. The blood of the filthy proletariat will flow in the streets, and the families of truck drivers, nurses, and retail employees all over the nation will know our wrath. No one making under $50,000 a year is safe. Today, the American economy will be put back on the right track, and the liquidation begins!” At press time, blood-drenched Republican senators Bob Corker and Lisa Murkowski were seen sprinting into a Baltimore Walmart wielding machetes."

"Study Finds Fewer Millennials Want To Live"
[Onion News in Brief]
http://www...nnials-want-to-live-1821477224
"WALTHAM, MA—Signaling a major shift in demographic preferences, a study published Wednesday by Brandeis University found that fewer millennials want to live. “In contrast to previous generations that regarded living as a core part of their identity, millennials as a whole seem indifferent or even highly resistant to it,” said lead author Ellen Towey, attributing the change in mentality among those born between 1980 and 1995 not to laziness or insufficient effort on their part, but rather a pervasive feeling that living is simply no longer within reach. “Despite seeing their parents and grandparents live for years, millennials are often so pessimistic about their own prospects for existence that many have lost interest in walking the earth altogether.” Towey went on to say that without adequate opportunities to live at present, some millennials are in the meantime exploring more viable alternatives."

"do you start to recognize any people on imgur or is the community too huge? are there imgur 'stars' like w/ youtube?"

..There have been a few sort of 'celebrities' on the site (not including actual celebrity Adam Savage, who posts sometimes); peeps can get recognition from making the front page multiple times, but you have to pay attention to the screen names (most people don't, which says a lot about how possible it is for people to have normal conversations). I always pay attention because I don't want to give points to certain people :p

Some examples of good posters who make the front page often would be ANewBadlyPhotoshoppedPhotoofMichaelCeraEveryday, AbortedFetusNecrophiliac, and ILikeCuteGifsAndICannotLie (last one is my favorite).. then examples of infamous shitposters/reposters would be SAFE4WORK, Lassannn, and Capinron — they regularly make the front page with stolen/recycled content.

one of them weird ass Florida stories:


Man Rigged Front Door To Try To Electrocute His Pregnant Wife, Police Say

The suspect also prematurely changed his relationship status on Facebook to “widowed.”


A Florida man is facing charges after he allegedly attempted to electrocute his estranged pregnant wife by rigging up a car battery charger to the front door of their Palm Coast home.

Flagler County deputies said 32-year-old Michael Scott Wilson tried to kill his wife, 29-year-old Ashley Lauren Wilson, by attaching an electrical device to the deadbolt lock and the handle of the front door, according to the Daytona Beach News-Journal.

Deputies said that if the accused’s wife had inserted her house key and then grabbed the handle, an electrical circuit would have been created, sending a jolt of electricity through her arm, chest and heart.

The setup came to light on Tuesday after the woman ― who was visiting family in Knoxville, Tennessee, at the time ― told her stepfather, Jon Flositz, that her husband had warned her not to let children touch the front door.

Flositz became suspicious and went to examine the home with his wife. They called authorities after they found the word “Hi” and a drawing of two eyes in lipstick on the back sliding door, according to the Gainesville Sun.

When investigators went to the house on Tuesday, the front door was barricaded and locked, and there were burn marks near the handle. One sheriff’s deputy kicked in the door, producing a large spark. Inside, the deputies found an elaborate rigging that included two chairs, a child’s high chair, a shower rod, blue tape, electrical cords, wiring and a car battery charger with clamps, the Sun reported.

By the time deputies discovered the booby-trapped door, Michael Wilson had left the scene with a firearm allegedly stolen from Flositz. Investigators noted that on Wednesday, Wilson changed his relationship status on Facebook to “widowed”.

Wilson was found Thursday in Knoxville and taken into custody. He was later charged with two counts of attempted aggravated battery on a pregnant person and one count of grand theft of a firearm.

Oh yeah, fucking "shit" has become fucking acceptable in fucking shit now. South Park even had that fucking episode (S05E01) where they checked to see how many times they could say, "shit." Apparently there's no shitty fucking fine for that shit anymore. :D

Good commentary :)

Speaking of shitty fucking shit..
"Plan To Be More Positive Off To Shitty Fucking Start"
http://loc...hitty-fucking-start-1819580136
"PITTSBURGH—Confirming that the change in outlook was already a massive pain in the ass, area woman Jen McKessy reported Thursday that her plan to be more positive was off to a shitty fucking start. “Well, I’m not even three days into giving optimism a shot, and it already sucks,” said McKessy, adding that her plan to live in the moment and give people the benefit of the doubt was probably a hopelessly naïve idea to begin with and that a smarter, less awful person would have realized this from the very beginning. “I can’t believe how quickly keeping things in perspective has gotten fucking unbearable. I mean, maybe I should feel proud that a fuck-up like me has even lasted 72 hours with a positive attitude, but there’s no way I’m missing out on an opportunity to feel like shit.” At press time McKessy’s revised plan to complain to everyone she knows was off to an excellent start."

As per lots of spam on Imgur, a YouTuber named "Logan Paul" has apparently gotten some media backlash (including Tweets from Sophie Turner and Aaron Paul) for filming a dead person in Japan's suicide forest and then for monetizing his apology video... but like, I've never heard of him or the dead person, so... game on?

Two of 7-year-old Brice Russell’s three brothers told police they saw their 6-2, 270-pound stepfather, Jack Montgomery, throw Brice around the Seffner hotel room; punch him in the stomach and mouth; rub his face into the carpet; and sling him by a leg so that his head hit a cabinet mounted high in a corner. During all this, Montgomery demanded they join in the Friday night violence.

The cabinet hit knocked out Brice. He never regained consciousness. His three brothers slept next to him. Hillsborough Fire Rescue found Brice cold and starting to suffer rigor mortis Saturday morning.

Montgomery told police he only threw Brice onto a bed and the child hit his head on the headboard. Brice seemed OK afterward, said Montgomery, who denied beating the life out of the child or knowing that the child was dead before trying to wake him up Saturday morning.

He’d caught the child sneaking out of the bed to snag a cookie, Montgomery said.

"news: a massive bombogenesis is going to wreak havoc on the northeastern US

Its gonna be like, a moderate to severe snow storm along the entire East Coast. For the US this will be an apocalypse, for Nova Scotia it will be like any of 200 days per year basically.

Inland as far as Montreal, we're just getting some cold and some high winds, and like, we just had week straight of identical weather so like whatever? And the whole months been uncharacteristically cold so whatever.
