A Spanish doctor has designed implants for short people to give them a little boost.Â The doctor has developed a silicone head implant that can increase a person's height by up to 5cm.
At first when I read this I thought it was the most ridiculous thing I had ever heard.Â Who would go under the knife to gain 5cm of height?Â Well.. actually the answer makes a little bit of sense.
Some jobs have height requirements.Â So for people who want to be police officers, flight attendants, models and firefighters but are just a tiny bit too short, the implant surgery can give them exactly what they need to get into their desired field.
The implant costs about $8,500 and the doctor says that people are already lining up at his Madrid clinic for the outpatient surgery.
In Beijing, a man has a pet tortise with a bad habit.Â The animal smokes cigarettes and appears to be addicted to nicotine.
The owner of the tortise smokes, and as a joke he put a cigarette butt in his pet's mouth.Â He was pretty shocked when the turtle smoked it.Â Now both the man and the tortise are regular smokers.Â The man says when he smokes the tortise will come up out of the water and beg for a smoke.
As unbelievable as it is, the man had the tortise smoke for reporters and his neighbors to prove that it was happening and the animal finished a cigarette in about 4 minutes in front of them all.
No one has really ever heard of a smoking tortise before, however monkeys have been known to pick up the habit after watching humans smoke cigarettes.
Zachary Booso's friends and ex-girlfriend didn't believe he was in a gang.Â Probably because he wasn't.Â However, he wanted them to believe his lie so badly that he shot himself four times.
Booso told police that when he was on his way to a friend's house a man flagged him down.Â He said he stopped at a clubhouse and the man demanded his wallet and shot him.Â Then he called a friend to say he'd been shot and the friend's dad called 911.
Booso's mother and the medics started commenting the the gunshot wounds looked self inflicted.Â When police pressed him to tell the truth, he admitted that he'd shot himself in the cheek, shoulder and thigh with a pellet gun.Â He said that he had done it because he wanted his friends and ex-girlfriend to believe he had a secret life as a gang member.
This bozo is now facing charges for filing a false police report.Â That's some good police work Lou.Â
I don't like this story, I truly don't.Â However, it's just so horrific that it needs to be told.
This pregnant woman and her boyfriend were staying with a friend of her boyfriend.Â He was nice enough to let them crash at his place.Â How does she repay this favor?Â By trying to kill him.
But that's not all, after trying to poison him she beat his small dog half to death and then threw it to the pit bull who finished it off, then the pit bull got put down.
Now she's going on trial.Â She's had the baby and is married to her boyfriend.Â I'm scared for her child.Â This is a person that should notÂ be responsible for any other life other than her own.Â She's truly demonstrated that.Â
What do you think?Â Here's a link to the whole story:Â Alleged Dog Murderer To Go On Trial

Happy Easter everyone! Also, Happy Birthday to Absolutely True. The blog is officially 1 year old today. My, how time flies. Thanks to everyone for your support this year, it's been so much fun. I really am looking forward to year 2!
Hope the Easter Bunny was good to you! I had hoped to have a picture of Walter with the EB this year, but he was not having it. So this big bunny will have to do.
Italian police are on the lookout for a smooth character who has been robbing bank tellers and supermarket clerks and making off with the cash in their tills.Â The man leans over and says "Look into my eyes.. " and the clerks all say that's the last thing they remember before realizing that all of the money is gone.
He is hypnotising the clerks into handing over the cash and has been caught on camera smugly walking away with the money.Â Police note that the guy bears an uncanny resemblance to Saddam Hussein but they have not been able to locate him.
Here’s a blast from the past that other 30-somethings might appreciate. I had to show it to Walter since he’s so into Mario right now, but of course had never heard of MC Hammer.
A dad in Ohio was recently leaving for work remembered that he had forgotten to kiss his 1 year old son goodbye before he left. He did what any great dad would do, he pulled back into the driveway and went back in to say goodbye.
When he got back into the house, it was quickly filling with smoke. He began yelling for his fiance to wake up and found his way into his son's room to grab him and get out of the house.
The house burned up and the family lost all of their belongings, but they have each other – all thanks to a forgotten kiss.
Isn't this odd.. The Observer reported today that a "suicide factory" in Switzerland has set up shop next door to the biggest brothel in the country.
The assisted suicide group was apparently evicted from their former location after complaints about bodies being placed in the elevator.Â Their new location has a private cargo elevator for the coffins.Â Not that the girls next door would mind finding a stiff in the lift….
In Switzerland, assisted suicide is legal and this Swiss company welcomes clients from other countries as well.Â The law that allows the death factory to operate states that the suicide has to be for a legitimate reason and that the group can't profit from offing their customers.Â They charge about $10,000 per death and claim is costs that much to orchestrate each death.
After they were evicted from their previous location and before they moved in next to the brothel, they were a roving death squad for a while.Â They assisted four people with suicides during that time, and two of those were in public parking lots.
