    The Muslim men reportedly stormed the pool shouting 'Allahu Akbar' threatening to "eradicate" women for insulting them with their bare bodies. The incident occurred at the naturist arer of the Strandbad Xantener Südsee in Geldern in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia on Wednesday last week - two days after an Afghan refugee attacked five people on a train in Bavaria and four days before an Isis supporter blew himself up at a wine bar in the small town of Ansbach. The incident was the latest in a series of assaults at swimming areas across the country where sexually repressed young...

    The fly bait companies opposed that solution, however, and instead reached a compromise with EPA in April 2015. By early 2017, the agreement calls for the companies to stop distributing methomyl fly baits to general retailers such as hardware stores, and to stop making small containers. Farm supply stores will still be able to sell larger 4.5- and 18-kilogram containers, which will come with new warning labels and explanatory pamphlets. The companies and EPA plan to monitor reports of misuse through 2020, and further restrict use to licensed applicators if incidents aren’t “significantly reduced.” The maker of one of the...

    I am tired of having to waste time positioning a sprinkler, turning off the water and moving the sprinkler a little to the left, a little to the right, etc. so that it hits all parts of the garden but does not spray the front of the building. So, I am going to the soaker hose solution. I'll just turn on the water and voila! Garden gets watered. I just acquired a 100' soaker hose kit to water my garden. It has 20 little T-s, male parts, female parts, and who knows, maybe some transgender parts, too. Haven't looked over...

Queen Hillary also announced drug king Joaquin Guzman as her selection for Attorney General. "He understands my way of doing business", the Queen said....

    Sheep on drugs have gone on a "psychotic rampage" after eating cannabis plants dumped in a quiet village, it is feared. The remains of an illegal cannabis factory was fly-tipped on a Welsh village road - and worried locals think the sheep have been chowing down on the psychotropic herbs. County councillor Ioan Richard said sheep have been "roaming the village" and causing havoc by breaking into homes and getting killed by cars as they stumble about in what appears to be a druggy haze.

The tree's estimated weight is more than 544.3 million kilograms.

Well, those balls aren't going to do much good just sitting in the closet at home. These people should give their balls to Hillary Clinton.

    Not many substances are as widely studied as tea. Now, the verdict is in. The bottom line: if you're not drinking tea on a regular basis, it might be a habit worth starting. That's because when it comes to your health, tea packs a powerful punch. Combined studies examining literally hundreds of thousands of tea drinkers led a vast array of scientists to conclude that a consistent dose of tea is good for the body. Most of the research was conducted in Asian countries, on people drinking hot, green tea. The amount mattered. Usually people only experienced health benefits if...

    Donald Trump was giving it his all during a final rally in New York Monday, but in the midst of his speech he made a flub. In a video obtained by CNN, the GOP candidate accidentally refers to 9/11 as the convenience store 7-Eleven, probably best known for its Slurpees. "I wrote this out, and it's very close to my heart because I was down there and I watched our police and our firemen down at 7/11, down at the World Trade Center right after it came down," he said. "And I saw the greatest people I've ever seen in...
