WTF?!?!? Beauty contest for NUNS?!?!?!

Posted by ILL Natured_gr on August 25, 2008

There’s a first time for everything in this life i guess…

Italian priest organizes beauty contest for nuns

Sun Aug 24, 2:58 PM ET

ROME – An Italian priest and theologian said Sunday he is organizing an online beauty pageant for nuns to give them more visibility within the Catholic Church and to fight the stereotype that they are all old and dour.

The “Miss Sister 2008” contest will start in September on a blog run by the Rev. Antonio Rungi and will give nuns from around the world a chance to showcase their work and their image.

“Nuns are a bit excluded, they are a bit marginalized in ecclesiastical life,” Rungi told The Associated Press after Italian media carried reports of the idea. “This will be an occasion to make their contribution more visible.”

Rungi, a theologian and schoolteacher from the Naples area, said that visitors to his site will have a month to “vote for the nun they consider a model.”

Nuns will fill out a profile including information about their life and vocation as well as a photograph. It will be up to them to choose whether to pose with the traditional veil or with their heads uncovered.

“We are not going to parade nuns in bathing suits,” Rungi said by telephone from his town of Mondragone. “But being ugly is not a requirement for becoming a nun. External beauty is gift from God, and we mustn’t hide it.”

Rungi said the idea was first suggested to him by nuns with whom he regularly prays and works. He hopes there will be dozens of submissions once the Web site is started.

The contest drew criticism from the association of Catholic teachers.

“It’s an initiative that belittles the role of nuns who have dedicated themselves to God,” the group’s president, Alberto Giannino, told Italy’s ANSA news agency on Sunday.

Sex with robots by 2050

An artificial intelligence expert claims we will be having sex with robots by 2050.

David Levy says by then robots will be nearly indistinguishable from real people.

In his book, Sex With Robots: The Evolution of Human-Robot relationships, he writes: “Great sex on tap for everyone, 24/7. What’s not to like?”

According to Levy, the people who are most likely to benefit from these sexbots are those so ugly or isolated that they have trouble finding human romance.

He said: “They’re lonely, they’re miserable. I think society will be a much better place when they have an alternative that satisfies them without doing any harm to other people.

“If there was a robot of the sort I describe in the book, I would certainly want to experience using it for sex and I wouldn’t regard it as anything untoward.

“I would do it out of curiosity. Not that I have a need for a new sex partner, I’m happily married.”

Teens charged with microwaving cat to death
Saturday, January 5, 2008 | 7:47 AM MT

Four teenagers from the Edmonton area have been charged with breaking into a house and killing a cat in a microwave.

Police in Camrose, southeast of Edmonton, say a home was broken into twice while the owners were away for the holidays last month.

During the second break-in, a cat from the home was put into the microwave and then cooked to death, Insp. Lee Foreman said.

Four teens between the ages of 13 and 15 have been charged with several offences including breaking and entering, theft and unlawfully killing an animal. They are scheduled to appear in a Camrose court on Feb. 7.

None of the teens lives at the home or is related to the owners, Foreman said.

“I’ve been policing for over 25 years and I’ve never encountered anything quite like this,” he said. “It’s very disturbing. It’s especially sad given the season.”

A family friend who was looking after the house while the owners were gone found the dead cat in the microwave.

Christmas shocking: Girl gets porn-filled MP3 player
Family angered after 10-year-old turned on gift purchased from Wal-Mart

Posted: December 28, 2007
2:28 p.m. Eastern

A father is considering legal action against retail giant Wal-Mart after an MP3 player he purchased for his 10-year-old daughter for Christmas was found to be loaded with X-rated sex scenes, violence and explicit songs.

Daryl Hill of Cookeville, Tenn., said his daughter was thrilled with the gift until she turned it on.

“Within 10 minutes, my daughter was crying,” Hill told Nashville TV station WSMV.

The player, which came from the Wal-Mart store in Sparta, Tenn., had been returned by a previous owner who loaded it with pornography, graphic war scenes and songs about drugs.

“I wish I could take the thoughts and images out of her head,” Hill said.

WSMV said it was referred to Wal-Mart’s corporate headquarters for comment. An e-mail from a representative said the retailer is investigating the issue.

Stores are not allowed to return opened packages to the sales floor, the representative wrote.

An angry and upset Hill said if Wal-Mart wants “to be a major retailer, they need to act like it.”

The family has refused Wal-Mart’s offer to replace the MP3 player.

They bought their daughter a new player and are keeping the porn-laden one until they consult a lawyer, WSMV said.

Woman allegedly stabs husband over gift

Fri Dec 21, 11:07 PM ET

ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. – A woman stabbed her husband with a kitchen knife following an argument that began when she accused him of opening a Christmas present early, authorities said Friday.

Misty Johnson, 34, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault and battery, a felony, and misdemeanor domestic battery. Her husband, Shawn Fay Johnson, 34, was treated at a hospital for a wound to the chest, police said.

Misty Johnson made an initial court appearance Thursday in which she requested a court-appointed attorney, authorities said. She was released after posting bail, which was set at $7,500.

There was no telephone listing for her in Rock Springs.

Authorities said Shawn Johnson called 911 just before 1 a.m. Wednesday to report that his wife had stabbed him. He told police that his wife started arguing with him over his opening a Christmas present, according to court records.

As the argument escalated, Misty Johnson accused her husband of having an affair, authorities said. Police found a marriage license in the couple’s apartment stating they were married in late September.

Police Detective David Thompson said he didn’t know what the present was, or if it was intended for the husband.

Unique ways to make money!

Posted by ILL Natured_gr on December 16, 2007

How can someone make totally unexpected money… 🙂

Dad sells son’s 90-dollar video game online for more than 9000

After catching his 15-year-old smoking pot, a father sold the hard-to-get “Guitar Hero III” video game he bought his son for 90 dollars for Christmas at an online auction, fetching 9,000 dollars.

The sale took place after the father spent two weeks searching for the video game for the Nintendo Wii gameboard.

“So I was so relieved in that I had finally got the Holy Grail of Christmas presents pretty much just in the nick of time. I couldn’t wait to spread the jubilance to my son,” the father wrote on the eBay website.

“Then, yesterday, I came home from work early and what do I find? My innocent little boy smoking pot in the back yard with two of his delinquent friends.”

The man, a school teacher, who kept his identity private, said he sold the coveted video game to punish his son and discourage him from smoking dope.

The sale was a boon for the family’s bank account, since the game the father purchased for 90 dollars (US) was finally sold to an Australian who plunked down 9,100 dollars for it.

The naughty son, however, will not go without a present on Christmas.

“I am still considering getting him a game for his Nintendo. Maybe something like Barbie as the Island Princess or Dancing with the Stars … I know he will just love them,” the father said, tongue-in-cheek.

Man nearly dies downing vodka at airport

Man nearly dies downing vodka at airport

4:38 p.m. PT Dec 12, 2007

BERLIN – A man nearly died from alcohol poisoning after quaffing two pints of vodka at an airport security check instead of handing it over to comply with new rules about carrying liquids aboard a plane, police said Wednesday.

The incident occurred Tuesday at the Nuremberg airport, where the 64-year-old man was switching planes on his way home to Dresden from a vacation in Egypt.

New airport rules prohibit passengers from carrying larger quantities of liquid onto planes, and he was told at a security check he would have to either throw out the bottle of vodka or pay a fee to have his carry-on bag checked.

Instead, he chugged the vodka — and was quickly unable to stand or otherwise function, police said.

A doctor called to the scene determined he had possibly life-threatening alcohol poisoning, and he was sent to a Nuremberg clinic for treatment. The man, whose name was not released, is expected to be able to go home in a few days.
