"Three people in Brazil killed and ate at least three women as a ritual of their religious sect. The cannibals, who have confessed to the crime, say that a voice told them to kill evil women. It's unclear if the voice also told them to use the extra human meat to stuff empanadas, which they then sold to their unwitting neighbors..."

Heyman is sponsoring a special proclamation on June 5th, 2012 for world renowned film director and producer Michael Bay, to be presented during the Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners meeting.

"A 21-year-old Morgan State University student told investigators that he ate the heart and portions of the brain of a man whose dismembered remains were found in his Joppa home, according to a grisly account from the Harford County Sheriff's Office..."
"Anyone who’s grown up in this country is likely familiar with Sesame Street and its cheery, often-educational songs. But a new Al Jazeera documentary, Songs of War, reports that music may have been used for entirely different purposes: as a torture method for detainees at Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib. And Christopher Cerf, the award-winning musician who composed the show’s music for 40 years, isn’t happy about it..."

"For two years, Miguel Exposito was the head honcho at the Miami Police Department. They were jolly times for the Magic City's muckrakers, who made an easy living as Exposito butted heads with Mayor Tomas Regalado and produced a too-crazy-to-be-true litany of scandals and shootings. When he was fired in September, Riptide poured out some whiskey for Expo.
Today, the ex-jefe is in Miami-Dade Court, where he'll petition a panel of judges to reinstate him as chief. Much as it pains us to say so, that would be a historically terrible idea. Let's recall why..."
"The Miami Marlins started the season with the most expensive tickets in the league. Granted that was for their opening day game against the defending world champs in their brand new stadium, but according to a site that aggregates secondary market tickets prices the Marlins now have the least in demand and cheapest seats in the game. Tickets to some games are selling for as low as $3 a pop on the secondary market. Which is odd considering that team just had their best month ever..."
Via Deadspin: "If you've ever attended school at any level, you know how infuriating it can be when some dipshit administrator screws up your paperwork and sticks you in the wrong class. Or even worse, when they actively try to prevent you from switching out of that class into the class you wanted. Well, one brave college student isn't about to take that shit lying down. An anonymous reader at a health-care vocational school sent in this message that was left on the voicemail system by an aggrieved student, and it's a masterpiece of profane righteousness. I would like to hire this woman to leave voicemails for every fucked-up bureaucratic entity in this country: The IRS, Verizon, every insurance provider ever, etc. She has struck a vital blow for us all in the battle against Big Everything..."
GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - John Edwards was acquitted on one count of accepting illegal campaign contributions and a mistrial was declared on five other counts when jurors said Thursday they couldn't decide if he illegally used donor money to hide his pregnant mistress while he ran for president...

By now, most Quentin Tarantino fans are aware of the connections interlaced throughout all of his films. John Travolta’s Vincent Vega in Pulp Fiction is the brother of Michael Madsen’s Vic Vega in Reservoir Dogs, Harvey Keitel’s Mr. White worked with Alabama from True Romance, the plot basis for Kill Bill is described as the synopsis for a TV series in Pulp Fiction, etc.
Now the epiphany that Eli Roth’s character of Donny Donowitz aka “The Bear Jew” in Inglourious Basterds is the father of the movie producer Lee Donowitz in True Romance has inspired a truly mind-blowing theory that the rest of the films (chronologically speaking) in Tarantino’s filmography take place in a world where [Inglorious Basterds spoiler] World War II came to an end when Adolf Hitler was brutally murdered in a movie theater by the Basterds. Hit the jump for more...
