Ray Lewis: Crime Will Increase If NFL Lockout Continues Into Regular Season (VIDEO)

Ray Lewis: Crime Will Increase If NFL Lockout Continues Into Regular Season (VIDEO) | In Today's News of the Weird | Scoop.it
Um, is Ray Lewis a football player or psychologist? Maybe a little of both?

"Baltimore Ravens star Ray Lewis told ESPN's Sal Paolantonio that he believes there will be an increase in crime if the lockout continues into the regular season.

The 36-year-old said that people, not just NFL players, will turn to criminal activity without a regular season because "there’s nothing else to do."

"Do this research if we don't have a season," he said. "Watch how much evil, which we call crime, watch how much crime picks up, if you take away our game."

The Pro Bowl linebacker discussed how the lockout affects "way more than" the players and owners."

Penis Party Cut Off: Guinness Won't Recognize Mass Circumcision

Penis Party Cut Off: Guinness Won't Recognize Mass Circumcision | In Today's News of the Weird | Scoop.it
"More than 1,500 boys recently took part in a mass circumcision in the Philippines in what's being called the world's largest-ever "circumcision party."
And if that's how they throw a party in the Philippines, I've just crossed that country off my travel list.

In any case, while they might be a record, we can't say for sure if it is... because adding a literal insult to a literal injury, Guinness won't recognize it.

"Guinness World Records does not recognize the number of medical procedures within a set period of time or in a mass group due to hygiene considerations and risks," spokeswoman Jamie Panas told AOL Weird News. "Medical procedures should be undertaken only on the advice of a doctor and the patients' welfare should always be the primary concern."

Settlement In Donald Duck Groping Lawsuit | The Smoking Gun | In Today's News of the Weird | Scoop.it
"The Pennsylvania woman who alleged that she was fondled by Donald Duck during a visit to Epcot Center in Florida has settled her lawsuit against Disney, federal court records show.

April Magolon’s complaint, filed last August against Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, was formally dismissed today by Judge John Padova in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia. The judicial order came a day after lawyers for the parties reported that the matter had been settled. Magolon’s attorney, Michael Pansini, sought dismissal of the lawsuit “with prejudice,” meaning that the action could not be refiled."

WATCH: Woman Gets Oral Surgery, Wakes Up With Irish Accent

"When Karen Butler meets new people, they often ask her where she’s from. And the answer -- Newport, Oregon -- usually surprises them. Why? Butler speaks with what sounds like an Irish accent. But she didn’t acquire it from spending time across the Atlantic. She picked it up at the dentist’s office.

Speaking about her medical oddity on a “Today” show segment, Butler explained that she went in for a surgical procedure about a year and a half ago. The funny voice she was speaking with immediately after seemed to just be par for the course, right along with the swelling and soreness. But as time went on and she healed from the surgery, her body returned to normal and the voice didn’t go away."

Either This Perp Is An Insane Clown Posse Fan Or A Big Panda Enthusiast | The Smoking Gun

Either This Perp Is An Insane Clown Posse Fan Or A Big Panda Enthusiast | The Smoking Gun | In Today's News of the Weird | Scoop.it
"Meet Andrew Davis.

The 20-year-old Oklahoma motorist was arrested Tuesday evening after he struck a man with his car, dragged the victim 100 feet, and fled the scene. Davis, pictured in the above mug shot, was charged with felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon and hit-and-run.

It is unclear why Davis, who is jailed in lieu of $25,000 bond, was wearing black and white face paint. Though observers could be excused for mistaking Davis for a fan of Insane Clown Posse, whose "Juggalo" followers are partial to similar facial adornment."

"A CANNIBAL has been arrested after his "dinner guest" changed his mind and called the cops.
The would-be victim from Switzerland answered an internet advert from the 43-year-old man seeking someone who would agree to be killed, cooked and eaten.
He claims he thought the offer — posted by a man in Slovakia — was nothing more than a "macabre fantasy game".

But he said after speaking to the unnamed man on the phone, he realised he was "deadly serious".

He alerted Swiss police who informed their Slovakian counterparts on Monday."

The women were not physically injured or sexually assaulted, Livermore police Sgt. Paul Mayer said. Investigators are baffled by who is doing this, and why."

Police: Butt Dialing Teen Accidentally Lets Cops Listen In On Drug Deal | In Today's News of the Weird | Scoop.it
Butt dialing can really get you into trouble!

"I've butt dialed plenty in my time... but I've never been arrested over it.
Butt... err... But this Georgia teen didn't just butt dial a pal or an ex or even mom or dad -- he allegedly called the cops.

During a drug deal.

Police say 18-year-old Daniel J. Moore accidentally called 911 during a drug deal... and even mentioned where he was during the conversation.

It was a Waffle House, of course.

When police arrived, he was still at the eatery -- and the phone was still on, with 911 dispatchers listening in."

In today's news of the weird: study suggests iPad owners less likely to commit adultery.

In today's news of the weird: study suggests iPad owners less likely to commit adultery. | In Today's News of the Weird | Scoop.it
"A new scientific study released today says that iPad owners are less likely to commit adultery “because they stop noticing other people altogether.”

According to the study, commissioned by Apple, Inc., iPad use disrupts what scientists agree are the necessary first stages of extramarital sex: “noticing, admiring, and talking to other people.”

The study, which was conducted on a sample of one thousand iPad owners, found that not only did iPad use make them thoroughly uninterested in extramarital sex, “their nonstop talking about the amazing features and apps on their iPads made them completely unattractive to potential sex partners as well.”

The study also indicated that iPad owners are far less likely to have sex with the people they are married to, but that in two-iPad couples “neither partner seems to care.”

Ana Catarian Bezerra, Brazilian Woman, Legally Entitled To Masturbate At Work (VIDEO)

Ana Catarian Bezerra, Brazilian Woman, Legally Entitled To Masturbate At Work (VIDEO) | In Today's News of the Weird | Scoop.it
"In a decision that can only be described as touchy, a Brazilian judge has reportedly ruled that a 36-year-old female accountant can legally masturbate at work and watch porn on her work computer.

Ana Catarian Bezerra successfully argued that she suffers from a chemical imbalance that triggers severe anxiety and hypersexuality, according to a viral news story.

Her work situation began to suffer because the only way she can relieve her anxiety is by masturbating frequently, according to Guanabee.com.

"I got so bad I would to masturbate up to 47 times a day," she said. "That's when I asked for help, I knew it wasn't normal."

After winning a court battle and seeking professional help, Bezerra is legally entitled to combine work with pleasure.

Her doctor has also given her a medical cocktail of tranquilizers that has reduced her need to masturbate to about 18 times a day.

As might be expected, Bezerra's case raises all sorts of eyebrows (among other things) by various experts such as Dr. Carol Queen, resident sexologist for Good Vibrations, a San Francisco-based sex toy shop."

Can't really blame the guy for trying to be extraordinary...

"A Michigan man dressed in a Batman costume was arrested early this morning after cops found him hanging off the ledge of a building.

Petoskey Department of Public Safety officers pulled the wannabe superhero back onto the building’s roof around 1 AM. A search of the man’s utility belt turned up a collapsible baton and a container of pepper spray. As a result, the 31-year-old suspect--who cops did not identify in advance of his arraignment--was charged with possession of dangerous weapons in addition to trespassing."
