German artist Georg Buchrucker incurs backlash over Adolf Hitler toilet roll

German artist Georg Buchrucker incurs backlash over Adolf Hitler toilet roll | Just plain weird | Scoop.it
Artist Georg Buchrucker has caused a stir by creating a toilet roll adorned with Adolf Hitler's face - inviting buyers to 'add a brown moustache' when when they use it.

 

If you ever fancied the face of one of history's most notorious figures nestled between your buttocks then your prayers have been answered.
Cheeky Georg has been heavily criticised for his Adolf Hitler toilet paper, with naysayers declaring that it trivialises the crimes of the dictator and his Third Reich movement.

 

However, Georg, from Bunn, Germany, disagrees as he has been getting a considerable amount of interest, both at home and abroad.

 

He said: 'I am getting e-mails now and orders from as far afield as America and Australia.

Bad day? Porcupine embeds 200 spikes in woman's head

Bad day? Porcupine embeds 200 spikes in woman's head | Just plain weird | Scoop.it
How unlucky can you get? A Brazilian woman was hospitalised after a spiky porcupine landed on her head.

 

A Brazilian woman was hospitalised this week after a spiky porcupine fell from the sky and landed on her head.

 

Housewife Sandra Nabucco was left in agony after the clumsy rodent embedded more than 200 of its sharp quills in her scalp.

 

The porcupine apparently dropped from a telephone wire while the 52-year-old walked her dog in Gávea, an affluent neighbourhood south of Rio de Janeiro.

 

‘It was a huge shock. I felt a thud on my head and then felt spines with my hands. The pain was enormous,’ she told Brazlian TV network Globo.

 

Surgeons used tweezers to remove the quills, but not before taking a picture for the rest of the world to see.

 

Despite Ms Nabucco’s painful experience, at least she can be content in the knowledge she saved the animal’s life.

 

‘I am a strong woman; an old person or child would have died. I also care about the animals,’ she said.

 

‘I saved its life. He broke his fall on my head.’

So if you’re having a bad day, at least a porcupine hasn’t fallen on your head (yet).

Eugenio Freitas masturbated in Sainsbury's in Newcastle-under-Lyme and is now banned from every supermarket in UK | Just plain weird | Scoop.it
A court heard he was spotted by CCTV operators with his hands in his pocket pleasuring himself through his trousers for 10 MINUTES

 

A pervert who stunned shoppers when he started MASTURBATING in the aisles of Sainsbury's has been banned from entering Britain's supermarkets - unless he is supervised by an adult.

 

Horny Eugenio Freitas, 49, went to his local supermarket "fully intending" to go shopping but became overwhelmed by his "excessive sexual drive."

 

A court heard he was spotted by CCTV operators with his hands in his pocket pleasuring himself through his trousers for 10 MINUTES.

One female member of staff spotted him loitering in the meat aisle but gave him the benefit of the doubt and just assumed he was "adjusting himself."

 

But other witnesses alerted staff at the store in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, who phoned police to arrest the married dad-of-four.

At Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court yesterday Freitas pleaded guilty to outraging public decency on July 8....

Man has new nose grown on his forehead

Man has new nose grown on his forehead | Just plain weird | Scoop.it
Surgeons perform the complex operation after the man's old nose was damaged beyond repair.

 

A man has had a new nose grown on his forehead after his original nose was severely damaged in a car accident. The man from the Fujian province in China, known only as Xiaolian was involved in a traffic accident last year, and when he failed to get treatment for his nose injury it became infected and irreparably damaged.


The 22-year-old was left with only one choice by surgeons: to have a new nose grown on his forehead. The nose was made using skin tissue expander and cartilage from the man’s ribs before being cut into the shape of a nose. Surgeons plan to transplant the new nose from his head, into the place of the old nose soon.

"In some cultures, it wouldn't be considered strange for a mother to take care of her son for 40 years. However, it might seem a little weird if he were dead for almost two decades.

 

After Joni Bakaradze died at age 22, his family in the Eurasian country of Georgia decided against interring him, and instead preserved his body as a mummy for 18 years. His mother, Tsiuri Kvaratskhelia, told Georgia News that the decision was made so that her son's child could "see what kind of father he had."

NASA hopes to lasso asteroids and bring them to Earth

Engineers Identify 12 Asteroids We Could Capture With Existing Rocket Technology

 

By looking through the catalog of known asteroids, aerospace engineers have identified 12 candidates that we could reach out and capture using existing rocket technology.

 

Long overlooked as mere rocky chunks leftover from the formation of the solar system, asteroids have recently gotten a lot more scrutiny. A couple years ago, researchers outlined a seemingly daring plan to lasso and bring an asteroid back to Earth. NASA doesn’t seem to think this is too crazy, and is moving forward with plans to capture, tow, and place a small asteroid somewhere near our planet.

 

There are also two different private space companies, Planetary Resources and Deep Space Industries, with plans to seek out and mine precious metals and water from near-Earth asteroids. And finally, the widely filmed Chelyabinsk meteor, which exploded over Russia in February, has focused international attention on the fact that we may one day want to deflect a potentially catastrophic Earth-asteroid crash.

'Incest cult' discovered in Australia

'Incest cult' discovered in Australia | Just plain weird | Scoop.it
Many of the children are believed to suffer extreme deformities and health problems brought on by inbreeding

 

The Colt family reportedly raised four generations of inbred offspring inside huts in a valley in New South Wales.

 

Their existence was apparently unknown to the 2,000 people with whom they shared the township. The case only emerged when local authorities were informed that children living in the huts were not attending school.

 

An investigation was carried out subsequently by New South Wales Police and Community Services.

 

It found deformed and disabled children living in squalor, who were described as being unable to take care of themselves and lacking knowledge of basic hygiene, such as how to clean their teeth or use toilet paper.

 

Both the location of the settlement, and the family's real name, have been withheld. But New South Wales Children's Court decided to release details of the case in order to publicise what is believed to be one of Australia's worst ever instances of incest....

Drunken Pig on the rampage picks fight with cow

Drunken Pig on the rampage picks fight with cow | Just plain weird | Scoop.it
The feral animal pigged out on beer before upsetting a cow and passing out under a tree

 

No, we're not telling porkies - a feral pig stole 18 cans of beer from a campsite in Australia, before drunkenly picking a fight with a cow and then falling asleep under a tree. In a scene reminiscent of a Friday night on a UK high street, the pig ransacked the campsite, crushing and then drinking the beer that had been left out by campers.


It was later spotted being chased by a wound-up (and we assume sober) cow until it escaped by going for a swim. It then seemingly passed out under a tree. A spokesperson for Australia’s equivalent of the highways agency, which is responsible for the campsite, told Australia's ABC news “Our guys aren't equipped to contain or control these wild animals, especially under the influence.”

Australian MP accused of texting photo of penis to mistress | Just plain weird | Scoop.it

An Australian politician accused of sending pictures of his penis to a woman has stepped down as the head of an ethics committee.

Peter Dowling has apologised to his family and described his behaviour as indefensible.

The allegations against the MP, who is a member of Queensland state's ruling conservative Liberal National party, emerged after the Courier-Mail newspaper reported that a woman claiming to be the politician's mistress sent a letter detailing their two-and-a-half-year affair to state parliament speaker Fiona Simpson.

The newspaper said it had seen several explicit text messages between Mr Dowling and the woman.

On Monday Mr Dowling, who has two children with his wife of 27 years, made a statement to the Queensland parliament.
