Tell me this does not sound fishy?

Quote :
(PEOPLE.com) -- Casey Johnson, the heiress to the Johnson & Johnson fortune who recently made tabloid headlines with a purported engagement to reality star Tila Tequila, has died at age 30.

Her death was announced by Tequila on her Twitter page and confirmed by police.

"Everyone please pray 4 my Wifey Casey Johnson," Tequila wrote. "She has passed away. Thank u for all ur love and support but I will be offline to be w/ family."'

Los Angeles police and firefighters were called to a house at 11:51 a.m. Monday. Johnson was pronounced dead at the scene.

"It appears to be a natural death," says police Officer Sara Faden. "There's no evidence of foul play. A toxicology report from the coroner's office will proceed next."

Johnson, who leaves a toddler daughter Ava whom she had adopted, was the great-great granddaughter of the founder of the pharmaceutical giant, and the daughter of New York Jets owner Robert Wood Johnson.

An openly gay socialite, Johnson had a knack for attracting paparazzi -- and trouble. A nasty fight with ex-girlfriend Courtenay Semel, daughter of former Yahoo chief Terry Semel, reportedly resulted in Johnson's hair catching on fire last October. Then in November, she was arrested for allegedly breaking into another former girlfriend's house.

In December, Tequila announced the pair were engaged. "Tonight, my beautiful girlfriend has just asked me to marry her and check out this rock," the lingerie-wearing Tequila said in an Internet video. "Bam! That is a 17-carat diamond ring from my baby."
Someone stands to make a poo load of money.

PostSubject: Horrible...   Thu Oct 20, 2011 11:06 pm

This guy was in massive debt so he killed himself... but first he released almost fifty lions, tigers, and bears from their pens on his animal farm in Ohio. Police shot and killed them all, except one monkey that is still unaccounted for but believed to have probably been eaten by one of the cats. I feel really bad for the animals, some of them like the Bengal tigers are endangered to boot. Really nothing else the cops could have done though, they didn't have tranq guns and transport on hand to capture them, and with them going off in all directions, somebody or their pets would have ended up dead. It's just to bad they had to kill all those poor animals. What was this guy who spent half his life taking care of these animals thinking? What an @sshat, some zoos or other sanctuaries would have taken most if not all of those animals in. What a damn shame. The cr@ppy way he sold his animals out to be killed lost any sympathy I'd have had for his suicide over debt.

Yeah, I was pretty shocked and saddened.
However, I think the authorities did the right thing. Their wasn't time nor resources to tranquilize the animals and public safety required they be killed.

Not that it in anyway excuses what he did, but...

"Never mess with a man's collectibles."

Doesn't matter if they collect Star Wars, comics, motorcycles, guns, etc. When you purposely screw with somebodies obsession you're knowingly pushing them to violence.

During a subsequent row he suffocated Pornpilai Srisroy, 28, before running off to his mother's house to tell her what he had done. :shock:

Hmm. She's pretty hot. Maybe I'll pick me up a Thai slave wife.

A slave is probably what he wanted. Instead he got some chick who broke his stuff.

PostSubject: The rape discount.   Fri Nov 04, 2011 3:20 pm

http://news.yahoo.com/victim-ordered-pay-attacker-spousal-support-201444230.html

Victim Ordered to Pay Attacker Spousal Support

She was forced to have sex with him, and now she's being forced to pay his bills.

Crystal Harris of Carlsbad, Calif., had been financially supporting her unemployed, abusive husband Shawn Harris for years. But after he sexually assaulted her in 2008, she took him to court.

The jury heard a damning audiotape of the attack secretly recorded by Crystal Harris, and her husband was convicted of forced oral copulation.

Even so, in 2010, the year their divorce became finalized, he requested spousal support. The judge awarded him $1,000 a month, and also asked Crystal Harris to pay $47,000 of her ex-husband's legal fees from the divorce proceedings.

"It stunned me and I think it's shocking," said San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis, who is fighting to close a loophole in the law that allows judges to exercise this kind of judicial discretion. "It's a priority for our office."

Harris, who turned 39 Thursday, makes between $110,000 and $120,000 a year as a financial analyst, and says she has been supporting her husband -- a former car salesman -- ever since their first son was born in 2002.

Under normal circumstances, Harris would have been required to pay $3,000 a month in spousal support after the divorce, but because of the domestic violence she endured, the judge said he would lower that amount to $1,000.

"I call that the rape discount," Harris said.

She appealed the judge's ruling, pointing out that her ex-husband will have no expenses while he's in jail.

The judge agreed, but when Shawn Harris, 40, is released from Donovan State Prison in 2014, he's entitled to ask for spousal support again. And California law entitles him to have it.




Truly Fracked up. Truly.

HMMMM she makes far more then he does. He beats her and she get a 2000 dollar discount. I say she made off fairly well. After all if a woman beats the man he ends up paying her anyway.

Now saying that the man should be in jail the money should go to into a trust fund for the kids if they have any.

Wind Farms National security threat.

Scientists say countless whirring fan blades produce 'blank spots' that distort radar readings, forcing government agencies like the Department of Defense to spend millions in a scramble to preserve their detection capabilities.

So I read the story.

I don't understand why it affects the department of defense but not civil aviation?

Anyway, they have found ways around. So its no big deal.

I guess the war on nonpolluting energy continues.

I have no idea if they cause radar problems or not but those god awful windmills are a blight on a landscape. Give me a coal plant any day instead of those inefficient bird killing windmills. I mean at least they dont have to cover thousands of acres and can be put almost anywhere.

I would rather breathe cleaner air and see wind farms than breathe the emissions from a coal fired electrica plant.

To each their own. Except your way has been proven to be a health hazard to me and my way just gives you a view you don't like.

Todays coal plants are extremely clean burning. We have one in the heart of Orlando and another just outside of the city. They have done air study after air study. The only thing it releases after going through scrubbers and filters in the air is steam. Our air quality is ranked as good the biggest problem being natural occurring ozone. Us being a tourist city we couldnt afford to have anything but clean air and bright skies. So I would rather have consistent reliable power without paying more because we have to cover thousands and thousands of acres to hope it can power a town. There is no comparison which is worse for the environment and nature and just a plain eye sore as far as the eye can see when your around them.





And this one sits right smack dab next to a upper class town/neighborhood I do work around all the time. What your seeing from a pic I took a few years ago coming out is pure steam.

The left does not understand coal is turned into coke. Then is burned which burns clean then you add the filters and scrubbers. Coal is the cheapest and is becoming cleaner by the minute.

One thing that should be done is building power plants on oil fields. All oil fields have an overabundance of natural gas, so much so that most of it is simply burned off without providing any benefit. If they'd use it to power steam turbines it would at least be useful.

Wow. My head is exploding from reading these posts.

For 30 years the electric industry and their allies the Republicans fought tooth and nail against any attempt to clean up coal fired electric plants.

Current "clean coal" electric plants are SUBSIDEZED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. And in fact, they are not clean. They are cleaner then old ones, but not clean. They still produce mountains of sludge full of every bad thing known to man.

And, of course, it has been part of the Repubican Party platform for over 30 years to allow coal fired plants to not put in new technology on old plants. However, they also want to be able to add capacity to old plants and be exempt from any of the newer type standards. Which would basically mean very, very few plants would actually be improved.

So, if your idea of a good idea is government subsidized power plants that procduce mountains of poisonous sludge, which by the way, is dumped anywere convenient, and that still pumps out radioactiviy equivalent to a three mile island every year, have at it.

I forgot to put in my reply to that.

I was going to make a snappy remark about what a great idea. Maybe we should move cities next to farms?

Moving natural gas is incredibly inexpensive. And transmitting electricity long distances wastes some of it. And natural gas is not only used by electrical plants. It's cheaper, easier and more economical to just send the natural gas to where the electrical plants and other users of the gas are.

Waking up gay?

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2058921/19st-rugby-player-Chris-Birch-stroke-gym-accident-wakes-gay.html

Burly rugby player has a stroke after freak gym accident… wakes up gay and becomes a hairdresser

A 19st rugby player suffered a stroke while training - and discovered when he woke up that he was gay.

Chris Birch, 26, had proposed to his girlfriend and worked in a bank when he suffered a freak accident in the gym.

The rugby-loving Welshman was trying to impress his friends with a back flip but broke his neck and suffered a stroke.


He was taken to the Royal Gwent hospital where his girlfriend and family waited for news - but said: 'I was gay when I woke up and I still am.'
His friends were stunned by the dramatic changes to his personality, especially his change in sexuality.

Chris said: 'It sounds strange but when I came round I immediately felt different.

'I wasn't interested in women any more. I was definitely gay.

'I had never been attracted to a man before - I'd never even had any gay friends. But I didn't care about who I was before, I had to be true to my feelings.'
