Hey everybody, Happy Wednesday, are you enjoying life? I hope you are. Let’s get right to the stories shall we?

Our first bit of  interest comes from a video of this guy drawing an anime character on the white board in Duke Nuke Forever.

Our first story of the day is about china, and it’s exploding trucks.

China Menaced by Exploding Explosives Trucks

Author: Artefact

The explosion of a pair of trucks carrying 70 tons of explosives has devastated everything within 3km of the blast, causing hundreds of casualties.

The explosion occurred at 11AM at Guizhou province, when a pair of trucks loaded with 70 tons of explosives spontaneously exploded whilst undergoing maintenance at a repair facility.

Heavy damage to most buildings within 3km of the epicentre was reported, and locals report strange chemical smells. A toll gate adjoining the site of the explosion was all but obliterated.

At least 7 people were confirmed dead, and over 200 have been hospitalised.

The precise cause is not known, but it seems likely making repairs on trucks still loaded high with gunpowder may have had something to do with it.

Gallery can be seen at Sankaku. But this isn’t the funniest part, as I looked at the related news articles, I saw this…

It seems impractical, but I do believe China can’t keep their explosives out of their military base. And on top of that, they reuse sewage oil…Now I don’t know about you, but sewage oil is pretty disgusting. China may be an economic super power, but they’re full of shit and lies. I despise Chinese ideology because of how fundamentally flawed they are, and the more I hear about Chinese retardation the more I laugh at their mentality. But enough talk, have at the next piece of news.

The gallery behind this is an NSFW gallery of a panty-clad Maria Kirisame (touhou) cosplay; Don’t look at me.

Next up, a mild case of insanity or just overreacting by Safeway, a local California grocery chain. From what I gathered, a Safeway manager took this case and blew it out of proportion. It was still a funny story nonetheless, but I agree this is pretty ridiculous.

Pregnant mom says sandwich arrest was ‘horrifying’

By JENNIFER SINCO KELLEHER

HONOLULU (AP) — Nicole Leszczynski couldn’t imagine that two chicken salad sandwiches would land her and her husband in jail and her 2-year-old daughter in state custody. But it happened five days ago, when the 30-weeks-pregnant woman forgot to pay for her snack while grocery shopping.

“It was the most ridiculous chain of events that happened,” she said while sobbing Monday. “It’s still hard to believe what happened.”

Leszczynski, 28, and her husband Marcin, 33, were handcuffed, searched then released on $50 bail each. Their ordeal at the police station lasted a few hours, but their daughter Zofia spent the night away from her parents in a case that has sparked nationwide outrage and forced the Safeway supermarket chain to review the incident.

The family had moved to an apartment near downtown Honolulu from California two weeks ago. Still settling in, they ventured out Wednesday to stock up on groceries, took the bus, got lost, and ended up at a Safeway supermarket.

Famished, the former Air Force staff sergeant picked up the two sandwiches that together cost $5. She openly munched on one while they shopped, saving the wrapper to be scanned at the register later.

But they forgot to pay for the sandwiches as they checked out with about $50 worth of groceries.

“When the security guard questioned us, I was really embarrassed, I was horrified,” she said. They were led upstairs, where the couple expected to get a lecture, pay for the sandwiches, and be allowed on their way.

But store managers wouldn’t allow them to pay for the sandwiches, she said.

“I asked to talk to a manager and he said it was against their policy to pay for items that left the store,” she said. “The security guard said we were being charged with shoplifting.”

Four hours later, a police officer arrived and read them their rights. A woman from the state Child Welfare Services arrived to take Zofia away.

 The pregnant mother said she tried to keep her composure until Zofia, who turns 3 in December, left the store. “I didn’t want Zofia to be scared because she’s never spent a night away from us. She didn’t have her stuffed animal. She didn’t have her toothbrush.”

But as soon as her daughter left, “I got completely hysterical. I went to the bathroom and I threw up,” she recalled.

A Honolulu police spokeswoman said it was procedure to call Child Welfare Services if a child is present when both parents are arrested. The store’s management did not know the girl would be taken away, said Susan Houghton, a spokeswoman for California-based Safeway Inc.

The national supermarket chain said it was looking into the incident. “It was never our intent to separate a mother from her child. That was a very unfortunate consequence to this situation,” Houghton said. “We understand the outrage. We are concerned about how this was handled.”

Leszczynski called the incident “so horrifying, it seemed to escalate and no one could say, ‘this is too much.'”

The couple was handcuffed and driven separately to police headquarters a few blocks away, where they were searched, had their mug shots taken and then released after paying bail. A police officer escorted them back to the store — which banned them for a year, Leszczynski said — where they picked up their groceries and walked home just before midnight.

“We basically stared at each other all night. We woke up at the crack of dawn and called (the state child welfare office),” Leszczynski said. While they waited, Leszczynski vented about the experience on babycenter.com and contacted a lawyer for help with being reunited with Zofia. At the lawyer’s suggestion, they took their story to the media.

Zofia was returned after an 18-hour separation from her parents.

The couple is charged with fourth-degree theft, a petty misdemeanor, and has a court date on Nov. 28, according to the city prosecutor’s office. The family hasn’t decided whether it will pursue legal action against Safeway.

Houghton said the company will review the police report and store security footage before deciding whether to press charges.

Next up 3 people try to buy a girl’s used panties. Yup, Japan, only there are people so perverted they would do something like this.

3 Busted for Buying Used Schoolgirl Pantsu

Author: Artefact

3 men have been charged with the crime of buying used schoolgirl underwear, paying as much as $100 a pair.

Shizuoka prefectural police found a 23-year-old man and his two colleagues had used an Internet forum to procure underwear from a 16-year-old high-school girl.

Police charged them with paying the girl ¥5,000-¥10,000 for several pairs of used underwear. The men admit the charges.

The prosecution is the first time the prefecture has applied its ban on the sale of used schoolgirl pantsu. which was only added in December (taking the form of an amendment to the prefecture’s “Youth Environmental Improvement Ordinance”).

The (un)healthy trade in soiled schoolgirl underwear which Japan enjoys is notorious enough to have provoked a variety of prefectural bans, as the practice is at the mild end of the “enjo kousai” schoolgirl prostitution spectrum and may well serve as a gateway to more intimate encounters for both budding schoolgirl harlots and their prospective johns.

Generally the trade takes place on the same deaikei sites used for actual prostitution, and a certain amount of interaction with the former owner of the articles may also be part of the service.

The trade is so well established it has its own particular slang and business model – those interested in learning more are advised to consult the previously published account of the trade by a young pantsu seller.

Cases of mothers selling underwear from their offspring have also been reported. The supposed existence of vending machines selling such articles is probably a myth, or at best an isolated occurrence.

However, it has also been noted that a significant proportion of the pantsu are probably not actually from schoolgirls, so a fate worse than arrest awaits the truly unfortunate pantsu collector – that of onanising repeatedly to the soiled underwear of a sneaky old woman or, worse yet, some anonymous 2ch misanthrope.

It is perhaps best not to dwell on the fact that the price these men paid for used pantsu could likely secure an only marginally more illegal sexual encounter with a real schoolgirl…

Next up, Bieber sued for paternity.

20-Year-Old Woman Claims Justin Bieber Is Father Of Her Baby, Files Paternity Lawsuit

By Dylan Howard and David Perel

A 20-year-old California woman has filed a bombshell lawsuit against teen pop icon Justin Bieber alleging he is the father of her three-month-old baby boy, Star magazine is exclusively reporting in its new issue.

Mariah Yeater is demanding the singer take a paternity test “to scientifically confirm” he is the father of the child, according to court papers obtained by Star.

The papers were filed in late October and Yeater asks the court for Bieber “to provide adequate support for my baby.”

In an affadavit signed under penalty of perjury Yeater says she was 19 years old when she had sex with the underage star backstage at one of his concerts in Los Angeles.

Bieber’s reps have strenuously denied the accusations but a court hearing has been set for later this year. In a statement to RadarOnline.com, Bieber’s said: “While we haven’t yet seen the lawsuit, it’s sad that someone would fabricate malicious, defamatory, and demonstrably false claims. We will vigorously pursue all available legal remedies to defend and protect Justin against these allegations.”

Next up, seems Hermain Cain f***ed up and talked.

Attorney says Cain violated deal, allowing accuser to speak

By Jonathan Easley – 11/02/11 07:48 AM ET

The lawyer for one of the women who accused Herman Cain of sexual harassment said his client might get a chance to speak publicly about the allegations because the GOP presidential candidate violated the confidentiality agreement between the two.

Attorney Joel Bennett told CBS’s “The Early Show” on Wednesday that his client hasn’t spoken publicly because of the confidentiality agreement, but that Cain’s comments might have cleared a path.

“There was more than one incident that my client received sexual harassment,” Bennett said. “She would like to speak out for the record, only because Mr. Cain has stated that he didn’t sexually harass anyone, that there wasn’t any substance to the allegations, and basically made it look like she was some type of frivolous claimant looking for money.”

According to Bennett, one of the stipulations of the confidentiality agreement was that neither party could make disparaging remarks about the other. Bennett said Cain violated that agreement on Fox News on Monday when he said that he had been told that the accuser’s performance in the workplace “was not up to par.”

“I think she’s upset about his statements and would like the record to be balanced and clear,” Bennett said.

The New York Times reported Wednesday that Cain’s other accuser received a full year’s salary, worth between $35,000 and $40,000, as a part of her severance package.

Cain was accused of sexual harassment by two female employees when he headed the National Restaurant Association in the late 1990s.

Since the story first broke, Cain has been under fire for offering conflicting details about the financial settlements reached with his accusers.

On Monday morning Cain claimed that he was “unaware of any sort of settlement” stemming from harassment charges. Later in the day, Cain said he was aware of a “termination settlement” but rejected the allegations, offering details about one incident.

“I just started to remember more — in 12 years a lot can go through your head,” he told Fox News earlier this week.

The Cain campaign has used the controversy as a rallying cry, and says it hauled in over $400,000 on the day the story broke. Cain has speculated that a rival campaign is behind the harassment claims resurfacing and has said that he is the victim of an “intended smear campaign.”

Cain told Fox News on Tuesday that he believed there was a racial aspect to media coverage of the controversy, although he admitted he didn’t have any evidence to support the claim.

On Tuesday, Americans for Herman Cain, a super-PAC unaffiliated with his campaign, sent out a fundraising letter that called the allegations a “high-tech lynching” to “take down any black man who stands up for conservative values.”

That’s our show for today, join us next time as we unravel more luxuriously stupid moments in the current life of man. Now before I forget, here is your moment of zen.
