I found my self saying out loud "over and over and over" this week...."I just can't believe what possesses people to behave the way they do or say the things they say. A lot of the stories this week are just tragic. There is just no understanding as to how people can be as cruel...evil, really as they are. Here in KC, a 19 year old was sentenced to life for killing her neighbor, a nine year old, when she was 15. She wrote about the horrific crime in detail saying how fun and exciting it was. It just defies explanation.
Makes all the "minimally crazy crap" pretty laughable. On my last post, I was talking about how this aging thing is a little perturbing and to add to my apprehension, I see a picture of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sly Stallone getting ready for surgery
Is There a Pill for This
What got my attention besides the wave of nausea that swept over me while looking at Arny, was the line in the story that said:
For the record, Arnie is 64 and Stallone is 65 ... and still in better shape than most humans.
What???? Compared to who??? Really, this isn't settling my nerves about the effects of aging.
Money Talks, even if it is Crazy Talk
Fausat Ogunbayo, 46, recently filed a $900 trillion law suit against the city of New York and its Administration for Children’s Services for allegedly improperly placing her two sons in a Queens foster home more than three years ago. According to Ogunbayo she says her rights have been violated. Fausat is acting as her own attorney (are we surprised??) and going after not millions...not even billions but trillions.
Officials from the city say the the children were removed from the home as Fausat seems to exhibit mental issues including delusions.
I don't think her lawsuit is proving the city wrong.
Blame it on the Boobs
A Florida woman was arrested on Sunday for driving under the influence. She insisted that she would have passed the sobriety test had it not been for her big boobs. Maureen Raymond claimed that even though she was driving over the speed limit, reeked of alcohol, had slurred speech and crossed over the yellow line several times that the real reason she couldn't stand to do the field sobriety test was the fact you can't balance when you have big breasts.
After doing a little dance for the police officers, she tried to undress to show off the goods but the officer asked her to keep her arms to her sides. According to Maureen, that can't be done...you guessed it...with big boobs.
Sibling Rivalry Goes Wild
A couple of weeks ago, you might remember that John Goodman, the founder of Polo Club Palm Beach, adopted his 42 year old girlfriend for the purpose of protecting his millions in an upcoming lawsuit levied against him. John is being sued by the parents of a young man that was killed when John (allegedly) ran a stop sign while he was intoxicated broadsiding a car driven by Scott Wilson.
Now that girlfriend/daughter, Heather Laruso Hutchins is part of the $300 million dollar trust set up for the kids, the REAL kids aren't taking it well.
Speaking of family trees with very few branches, here is another family that had some very strange dynamics.
