  1. ‘Polygamous ninja’ Raven Blackwing now faces rape charges for alleged abuse committed with husband in 2014 DRAPER, Utah -- One of the women dubbed as a “polygamous ninja" faces new charges of rape, for alleged abuse that she committed with her husband more than four years ago. "Authorities said Blackwing and 19-year-old Tylynn Southwick broke into a West Jordan home on Sept. 19 while armed but were subdued by the occupants of the home," Ashton Edwards with Fox 13 wrote in 2015. "Court documents state the women were armed with a knife, a stun gun, a tourniquet and syringes along with a chemical intended to render someone unconscious when they broke into the home." According to an indictment filed in Utah's Third District Court, Blackwing engaged in illicit sexual activity in March of 2014 with a 17-year-old who had moved in with her and her husband Kain Blackwing. The indictment stated that the victim of the alleged abuse was being trained in fighting and survival skills by Kain Blackwing. Around three weeks after meeting Kain, he told the victim that he was a "Shen Lord," and a god, according to the indictment, and that if he "ever bonded with a woman she became his and the only way out of the relationship was death." The indictment stated that Raven Blackwing also told the 17-year-old that Kain had supernatural abilities. She allegedly urged the teen to continue in her training with Kain and to come to their home and spend time with her husband. About a month after training with Kain, the victim was reportedly encouraged to leave her relationship and to "join their family and become one of Kain Blackwing's wives," the indictment stated. At a Valentine's Day dinner, the teen was convinced to move in with Kain and Raven Blackwing. After moving into the home, Raven and Kain Blackwing allegedly engaged in sexual activity with the teenager on multiple occasions, the indictment stated. The victim also stated that Kain told her he had killed multiple people, and she feared that she would be killed if she "betrayed him." Click on the link for the full article

    The airline experience has become miserable

    Man sues British Airways for 'sitting him next to fat passenger' A holidaymaker who is suing British Airways for £10,000 has told a court he was injured after being forced to squeeze into a seat next to an obese man who was “the size of Jonah Lomu”. Stephen Prosser, 51, claims he suffered personal injury and loss of earnings after being made to sit next to the large passenger during a 12-hour flight from Bangkok to Heathrow. On Friday, Pontypridd county court heard the self-employed civil engineer claim cabin crew ignored his complaints that he would be injured if forced to sit next to the “extremely large” passenger, who he described as being 6ft 4in (1.93 metres) and weighing approximately 22 stone (140kg). Prosser, who is 1.60 metres (5ft 3in), said: “He was that large that he had to force his buttocks between the arm rests of the seats. “He sat with his knees wedged against the seat in front and the rest of his body was overspilling into my seat by some inches. “I was immediately aware that this was going to be problematic for me and I could feel the weight of his pure bulk putting lateral pressure on my upper body. This forced me into a position of unnatural posture. “Due to the size of him when he placed his arm down at times it would rest on my armrest, and he would accidentally turn the volume of my audio up to an extremely loud volume each time.” Click on the link for the full article

    The Liquor Thread

    Recipe: Bourbon Cough Syrup for Grownups It seems like winter colds strike with a vengeance right now, at the end of the season. In my household we drink literally gallons of ginger and honey tea during the cold months. Fresh ginger tea is delicious, and it wards off colds pretty well. But when I was felled last week by a particularly nasty cough, I had to turn to something stronger. It’s basically hot bourbon and lemon juice, with a heaping helping of honey. I cut it with a bit of water, too, but that’s optional. It’s an easy nightcap, steaming and warm, with a stiff shot of booze to put you to sleep, lemon for Vitamin C, and all that sweet honey to make it go down easy.

    Florida....? oh yeah, Florida.

    Woman, 34, made 13-year-old girl walk naked down a Florida sidewalk as punishment for misbehaving A woman has been arrested for child abuse after she allegedly made a 13-year-old walk down a Florida sidewalk naked as punishment. The victim told deputies that Rosalie Contreras, 34, was mad at her for misbehaving, so she drove her to a remote location in Dade City, made her take off her clothes and ordered her to walk back home. Contreras was following behind the girl, and when another vehicle approached, she told the girl to get back in the car. She then allegedly hit the victim's face, punched her on the back and grabbed her breasts, pinching and twisting them. The teen was left with visible injuries. In an interview with investigators, Contreras said she took the victim to that location because someone would not let her spank the girl. Click on the link for the full article

  8. Brother to Canberra's notorious penis owl erected in northern Serbia The recently installed phallic figure stands 2.4 metres tall on a roundabout in the town of Kikinda in northern Serbia. It has been drawing ridicule locally and making world news for its striking silhouette. It's certainly not a world first — that honour goes to Canberra's infamous 'penis owl'. The statue on Belconnen Way in the city's north was installed in 2011, and is often a target for vandals. Click on the link for the full article
