    The three-breasted lady sounded too good to be true, and it now appears she was a hoax all along. The 21-year-old calling herself 'Jasmine Tridevil' and claiming to have undergone plastic surgery to add a third breast, has been connected by internet-rumor site Snopes to a Tampa, Florida massage therapist named Alisha Hessler. Snopes discovered that the website JasmineTridevil.com is registered to a person named Alisha Hessler, and that Tridevil bares striking resemblance to a Tampa masseuse named Alisha Jasmine Hessler . A website for Hessler's business - Alisha's Golden Touch - lists that she is a 'provider of internet...

    I can’t believe I’m writing about “StopRush” again.Longtime readers will recall my extensive and groundbreaking research into the StopRush operation just after Limbaugh’s comments about Sandra Fluke in 2012, for which he apologized.I proved then that the operation — at least at that time — was a Media Matters astroturfed assault on Limbaugh’s advertiser base, based on a pre-existing plan just waiting for the right moment. Supposedly independent groups coordinated their efforts with an MMFA operative, and then tried to cover it up. My research led Limbaugh to activate his personal Twitter account to spread the results of my research....
  • Opposing waiting periods for abortions is disrespectful towards women

    live action ^ | Mariel Sofia Lindsay
    Missouri just became the third state, after Utah and South Dakota, to implement a 72-hour waiting period for women seeking abortions. The pro-choice camp is adamantly denouncing the new state law, proclaiming that it causes women additional suffering. But waiting in and of itself does not cause suffering. Circumstances do. Often the woman suffers deeply not because she must await a medical procedure but because she agonizes over the circumstance that impels her to it. She agonizes over the fact that she is pregnant, and desperately does not want to be. She bears the agony of an unceasing inundation of...
  • Rise of Islamic Schools Causes Alarm in Secular Turkey

    Istanbul (AFP) -- When Turkish pupils received their school entry exam results after the end of last term, textile worker and father Halil Ibrahim Beyhan received an unpleasant surprise. His daughter had been assigned to a religious high school, like thousands of other students under a new system that caught many parents off guard. Parents, educators and civil society groups have decried the move as another attack on Turkey's secular principles by the Islamic-rooted Justice and Development Party (AKP) co-founded by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, accusing the government of imposing religion on students. "My child will be forced to wear...

Prison folklore tells us that Pennsylvania Governor Gifford Pinchot used his executive powers to sentence Pep to Life Without Parole for killing his wife’s cherished cat. Prison records support this story: Pep’s inmate number (C-2559) is skipped in prison intake logs and inmate records. The Governor told a different story. He said Pep had been sent to Eastern to act as a mascot for the prisoners. He and the Warden, Herbert “Hard-Boiled” Smith, were friends. Pep was...

Illegally distributing business cards and generally causing a commotion on North Beverly Drive. It was probably the first time a robot had ever been arrested. When BHPD approached DC-2, the person operating it via remote control refused to identify himself to police. Officers searched the immediate area, but whoever was behind the thing was nowhere to be found. The bot's mysterious operator wasn't afraid of a little joking around though, despite...
