Man dressed as Spider-Man punches NYPD cop in Times Square, authorities say - NY Daily News


This guy has absolutely no Spidey-sense!

A foul-mouthed Times Square Spider-Man clocked a city cop as he was about to place the not-so-superhero under arrest for bilking tourists, authorities said.

The unmasked web-head — identified by police as 25-year-old Junior Bishop of Brooklyn — is facing assault, resisting arrest, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct charges for the dustup on W. 42nd St. near Broadway.

“From what I saw, it was Spider-Man’s fault,” said one witness, who did not want to be named. “He grabbed the cop, and then I saw him swing and hit him in the face.”

“The cop had to go to the hospital,” the witness said. “Nobody expected that.”​

https://uk.news.yahoo.com/china-married-man-visits-doctor-period-pains-learns-114447246.html#HHwxm1q


It might sound like a joke, but when a married man went to the doctors with stomach cramps he found out that he was in fact having a period ... and that he was a woman.

The shocking discovery came when Mr Chen from Zhejiang, an eastern coastal province in China, complained of feeling constantly tired and found blood in his urine, according to Shanghaiist.com.

Upon visiting the doctors, he was immediately given a CT scan and told he had a uterus and ovaries.​

Kim Jong Un is touched by "deep emotion" while visiting a lubricant factory






The photo above shows North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un on a visit to the Chonji Lubricant Factory, where the official news agency reported that he felt “deep emotion” on seeing the factory churn out lubricant that the country previously had to import. Speaking in “an excited tone,” Kim Jong Un praised his father Kim Jong Il for laying the foundation for North Korean lubricant independence. “This factory is a posthumous one,” the supreme leader said.

Kim Jong Un, apparently an expert on manufacturing lubricant, also offered advice to the staff at Chonji. “He gave precious instructions for managing and operating the factory,” the news agency reported, adding that Kim Jong Un called for “boosting the production of quality lubricant and grease required by all types of vehicles.”​

Man fined for pretending to be ghost in cemetery - The Scotsman


A MAN has been fined after pretending to be a ghost in a Portsmouth cemetery.

Anthony Stallard, 24, was seen kicking a football around with a friend in Kingston Cemetery after the pair had been drinking.

He was reported to police, who detained him and charged him with using threatening or abusive words, or behaviour likely to cause distress.

Tim Concannon, prosecuting at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court, said: “While the football was going on they were shouting and this defendant was effectively singing loudly and being disrespectful in among the graves.

“He was throwing himself backwards, waving his arms about and going ‘wooooooo’. I’m assuming he was pretending to be a ghost.”​

Asshole defends other asshole · Newswire · The A.V. Club


Gene Simmons, asshole bassist for KISS, a band most vocally championed by assholes, has come out in support of asshole Donald Sterling and his right to be an asshole. Simmons—an asshole who once titled his solo record Asshole and regularly threw himself “asshole parties”—has long been a firm believer in one’s right to be an asshole, whether it’s to your fans and fellow band members, or just making the sort of everyday racist comments Simmons believes everyone makes, but that the Los Angeles Clippers owner had the misfortune to be caught making on tape and also over the course of many years.​

Humpback whale breaches off New York City | New York Post







There she blows!

A humpback whale, dubbed Jerry by researchers, showed that some summer tourists come by sea, as the magnificent creature surfaced off the coast of the Big Apple.

Jerry got a gorgeous glimpse of the Empire State Building, and surely must be heading to Broadway to take in a performance of “The Little Mermaid.”

Scientists describe Jerry’s behavior as spyhopping, a move that’s much like humans treading water and allows the massive marine mammals to take a look at their surroundings.

Whales don’t usually get so close to the city’s shoreline, but Jerry is just one of the many large sea creatures venturing closer to the shores of New York and New Jersey because of cleaner waters that are rich with the kind of fish they like to eat.

Paul Sieswerda, of the whale-tracking group Gotham Whale, has even described New York City as the “new Cape Cod” because of all the whales showing up to frolic in our waters.

There have been 29 whale sightings from spring until July 24. Among the behaviors sighted are whale “lunge feeding,” and surfacing to blow water.​

Man In Barbie Costume Sneaks Into Bathroom Moments Before Attacking Woman (VIDEO)


"He got right in. He made his hand into a C-clamp," the woman testified at the preliminary hearing. "He put his hand on my neck and pushed me against the wall."

Fearing she would be raped, she tried to scream but the man covered her mouth. She continued to fight back until she freed herself and fled the bathroom.

"I just told myself, I'd rather die than be raped by this man," she said according to the station.​

The mysteriously moving Death Valley rocks known as “Sailing stones” have left scientists scratching their heads for years. But a group of researchers has finally discovered the secret to their movement across the Racetrack Playa. After carefully tracking the “Sailing Stones” with GPS monitors and time-lapse photography, scientists were able to breakdown the unique balance of rain, ice, wind, and sun that create the baffling movement. A small pond under the “Sailing Stones” cyclically thaws and freezes. As the ice breaks apart into glaciers, a steady and slight wind pushes the sheets to move the rocks. While it's pretty exciting to understand this curious natural phenomenon, one of the scientists described the tedious research as “the most boring experiment ever.”​
