A 30-year-old Guy head-butted His Own MOM Over Dinner
Foreman, 30, is nursing a boo-boo he got late Thursday after allegedly head-butting his mother in the face during a confrontation in their residence at their home in Largo, Florida. The reason for Foreman’s battering of his 55-year-old parent? “ They had a verbal disagreement because the victim brought home Chick-fil-A and he did not want to eat Chick-fil-A and became upset before head-butted his mother, causing her bottom lip to split. He was arrested for domestic battery, a misdemeanor, and booked into the county jail but later released from custody and directed to have no contact with his mother. A judge also ordered Foreman to be outfitted with a device that monitors his alcohol intake. (Smoking Gun)
A New Study Shows That Getting-it-on Could Keep You From Overeating
Obesity may ultimately be a disease of the brain, involving a progressive deterioration of various cognitive processes that influence eating. Researchers at Macquarie University have now shown that memory inhibition – the useful ability to ‘block out’ memories that are no longer useful, which depends on a brain area called the hippocampus – is linked to dietary excess. Usually, food-related memories should be at the forefront during hunger but then inhibited during fullness, so that thoughts of food are set aside when eating is no longer top priority. Prior animal studies have shown that a Western diet – one high in fats and sugars and low in fruit, vegetable and fiber – impairs the memory inhibition abilities of the hippocampus. Practically, this could mean that a Western-style diet makes it harder to inhibit pleasant memories triggered by seeing or smelling palatable food. This would make it hard to resist delicious treats even if one were full. (SSIB)
It’s All Gone Down The Drain
A toilet-themed cafe where customers dine on meatballs floating in soup-filled latrines may not be everyone’s idea of haute cuisine, but Indonesians are flocking to become privy to the latest lavatorial trend. Guests at the “Jamban Cafe” sit on upright toilets around a table where food is served in squat loos. On a recent visit to the venue, in Semarang on Java island, traditional Indonesian “bakso” — a type of meatball — bobbed in a murky soup in one toilet, while a second contained a brightly-coloured, alcohol-free cocktail. For those who found the whole experience too nauseating, there was a sick bag hanging by the entrance. (Yahoo)
What A Load Of Croc…
An Australian family woke up to a bizarre discovery — someone had entered their home and let a 5-1/2-foot crocodile in their bathroom. Homeowner Becky Myers said she and her family members often spot crocodiles near their home in the Bees Creek area of Darwin, but the saltwater croc her tenant discovered in their home recently was the first they had ever found inside the house. She went into bathroom and there’s a croc sitting there on floor. I didn’t know if it was alive or not — its eyes were open but it wasn’t moving. Crocodile ranger spokesperson said the croc put up a bit of a fight despite her poor health and taped mouth. He said she was taken to a nearby farm for medical attention. Due to laws, the prankster or pranksters could face hefty fines for interfering with wildlife. (UPI)
Whatever Blows Up Your Skirt
A man admitted he surreptitiously took cellphone video up a woman’s skirt while she shopped at a grocery store, but a Georgia court said he didn’t break the law. A divided Georgia Court of Appeals this month tossed out the conviction of former grocery store employee Brandon Lee Gary, who recorded videos up a woman’s skirt — known as “upskirting” — while she shopped. The 6-3 majority opinion said Gary’s behavior, while reprehensible, doesn’t violate the state’s invasion of privacy law, under which he was prosecuted. In a ruling issued July 15, Judge Elizabeth Branch said it is “regrettable that no law currently exists which criminalizes Gary’s reprehensible conduct.” Prosecuting Attorneys Council of Georgia plans to draft legislation to solve the problem. State Rep. Rich Golick, a Republican who chairs the House Judiciary Non-Civil Committee, claimed he would welcome such a bill and State Senator Vincent Fort plans to make sure the law is fixed during the next legislative session, which begins in January.

Hot Dogs On A Tin Roof
Two dogs covered in melted black tar were rescued off a roof on one of the hottest day of the year during a heat wave in New Jersey. On July 22, an animal shelter received a call that two dogs were in extreme distress on a roof and the Newark-based Associated Humane Popcorn Park Shelter went to investigate. The group was confronted with the horrific sight of a Pit Bull and a Yorkshire Terrier ‘frantically “dancing” on the roof in an attempt to stop their feet from burning.’ Temperatures had reached 96 degrees and the group wrote on its Facebook page that the tar on the roof was ‘bubbling, boiling, and burning these helpless dogs.’
As for criminal charges against the owner or owners, the shelter wrote on Facebook: ‘If you look at just these two pictures of the pit bull with a burned face, covered in hot tar, and the rear end of the Yorkie burned and caked in tar, it’s very obvious that this is outright animal cruelty, abuse and neglect.’ It added that animal law enforcement agencies in Newark will be investigating. The shelter is asking for donations to help cover the costs of the dogs’ medical treatment. The group made a plea for people to watch out for animals, especially in this extreme heat. (Daily Mail)
