Strange & Bizarre Deaths Around the World

Despite death being everyone’s last destination, many people still treat death as if it was a distant rumor. A lot of people want to die in their beds peacefully. However for some, that just doesn’t happen – instead, they get bizarre deaths. See below how weird and strange some people ‘got it’, at the last minute.

Laughter death

laughter death
It’s not a laughing matter to die when you are laughing. Do not stop laughing because history accounts several deaths due to laughing. Some of the people who have died whilst laughing include, Mrsfitzeherbert who in 1782, when enjoying The Beggars Opera on a Wednesday evening, laughed uncontrollably and she was unable to stop. She left the theater laughing and she laughed till Friday morning when she died.

On 24 marches 1975, another victim lost his life due to the laughter induced death. It was Alex Mitchell. He was watching “kung Fu Kapers” episode of “the goodies”. Alex laughed for 25 minutes before collapsing on the sofa and he was no more.

Beard induced death

hans
You may ask how a beard can lead to the death of someone. Good question. But once you get to understand that Hans Steininger had the longest beard in the world, you will probably figure out some ways. It is said that Hans beard measured 1.50 meters. It is also said that one day Hans accidentally stepped on it and it tripped him, leading to hans losing balance and falling. He broke his neck and is said to have died instantly.

Deadly demonstration

revolver
This happened to U.S congressman Clement Vallandigham, who accidentally shot himself in the court. In the head. Clement was defending a murder suspect in court at the time of his death. In his argument, he argued that the victim could have accidentally shot himself while drawing his gun. Clement promptly proceeded to demonstrate to the court room how this could have happened and drew a gun he believed was unloaded. But Alas! He shot himself and died. But eventually he won the case, though he was dead at the time the judgment was announced.
falling
Another person who feel victim to a deadly demonstration was 38-year-old Garry Hoy. Garry is said to have wanted to prove to his friends that the glass of the Toronto-Dominion center was unbreakable. So prove this he threw himself against the window. Sure enough the glass did not break but the window’s frame popped out and Garry fell to his death from the 24th floor.

A delicious death

adolf frederick
The pun goes, do you eat to live or live to eat? But none has ever tried to twist it so that you could eat to die. King Adolf Frederick died a bizarre death after a sumptuous meal. His meal included Caviar, Sauerkraut, Smoked herring and Champagne, lobster and a dessert of hot milk. After the meal the Swedish king suffered fatal ingestion problems that led to his demise

Weird Stuff Found Stuffed in Women’s Bras

weird stuff found stuffed in womens braIf until now, you had thought Women’s Bras as underwear slash suggestive objects, you have another thing coming. For a lot of women were found to be using their brassieres for very out of the ordinary purposes. You might be left wallowing in wonder how a woman can walk around comfortably with an animal stuffed in her bra. And its not only animals – a whole bunch of other things have been, and are being smuggled around in bras unnoticed it seems. It’s weird, and here are some of the weirdest stuff that have ever been discovered hidden in women bras :

Cockatoo eggs

cockatoo eggs
Talk of fragile goods being placed in the safest place. But it was not a rosy case when a woman was caught with a pair of cockatoo eggs in her brassier. The woman was said to be smuggling them from Australia to Britain. It is said that the eggs later hatched and the two cockatoos lived. Given the warmness in the chest area of a woman, for a moment you might wonder what would have happened if the eggs hatched when they were stuffed in the bra while being smuggled.

An Iguana

Iguana
Look at this majestic Iguana. Look at how regally he poses. And now imagine him bursting out of the bra of the woman sitting next to you in the plane. Well, you’re lucky, for neither this woman was on any flight you boarded, nor she was caught in mid-flight. Instead she was caught with an Iguana in her bra at the Blackpoll International Airport in United Kingdom. A security officer is said to have noticed something moving inside the Russian woman’s dress. After a female officer searched the woman she found that the Russian woman had indeed hidden the reptile in her brassier. Though the Russian woman was not prosecuted, the Iguana was confiscated and handed to a local Zoo for adoption.

75 baby snakes

baby snake
Its not one, its not two – its freaking 75 baby snakes found in the bra of a woman in Stockholm, Sweden. Ostensibly the woman had tried to smuggle 75 slithery snakes into a plane. The weird part is that she was not using a bag to carry them but she had stuffed them in her bra just like that. Talk of gut! this woman really had ‘balls’ but the snakes’ constant movement must have given her a sensation that sold her out as officials saw her repeatedly scratching her chest.

A baby monkey

baby monkey
When was the last time you saw a baby monkey dressed in a pink and white dress? If you were some of the audience in a court hearing in Virginia courthouse in 2011, then you would have just witnessed it. It is said the woman had arrived for a hearing in Juvenile and Domestic Relations court and when she was filling some paper work, she astonished everyone around there when she pulled out a 7-week-old marmoset from her bra. She proceeded and went on to refer to the monkey as her daughter and no one questioned her about that neither then, nor later. Its street smarts, not to mess with people who pull monkeys out of their bras and introduce them as their daughters.

3 Million Dollars

zimbabwe dollars
No not those dollars. That is a Zimbabwe dollar. Actually, precisely 5 Zimbabwe dollars. Just put it there to check whether you were still paying attention. Instead, we are talking about U.S. dollars, and we are talking about a woman who worked as an accountant in a district school who was discovered to have stolen $3 million over 8 years by hiding the money and smuggling it out of school in her bra. Yeah, you heard that right – $3 million dollars. Judith Oakes, her name is, and she apparently didn’t find getting paid $80,000 a year so that she decided to run this bold and maybe somewhat sensual embezzling operation with the help of her bra. Meaning that she smuggled out $220,000 every year over 8 whole years until she was discovered, being hit by multiple charges of felony counts.

Gold Bullion

gold bullion
Speaking of money and boldness, another woman, a British, had the boldness to hide two whole gold bars in her bra, after a gold robbery in Belgium. Two bars weighing 350 g in total dropped down from her bra when she was searched in a police station they were pulled. She was cleared of all charges, since she apparently hid the gold in her bra after discovering them in her pockets after they were arrested. It turns out that her boyfriend was one of the conspirators of the gold bullion robbery.

333 Heroin Packets

heroin packets
I definitely don’t know whether they picked the number intentionally, however 333 was the exact number of heroin packets police had pulled out of Kim Decker’s bra when she was arrested in New Jersey. Being pulled aside for driving erratically, not only she was found to not have a driver’s license, but also had confessed to be carrying 333 packets of heroin after police noticed the whole operation that was going on in her bosom. An ordinary pullover thus turned into a full blown drug bust.

How about that. Now, can you say that you still can look at women’s bra as an enchanting everyday item anymore ?

Offbeat Phobias in Society

There is always a fear hidden in every soul that lives under the sun. But when this fear becomes extreme then it graduates to a phobia. It’s true that people do really behave irrational when phobia presents its grim self before them. Screaming, yelling, stomping, running over whomever or whatever is in their path are just but some of the ‘trade skills’ most people use when they are faced with the grim face of what they fear passionately. But with that said there are some offbeat phobias out there – phobias that will provoke a smile or even a frown on your face once you come to know about them. There following are some of the offbeat phobias that torment some souls among us :

Spectrophobia

spectro phobia
After grooming yourself, the actual taste of the pudding is the point you look at yourself in the mirror and admire how well polished you look. But this is not the same with people who suffer from spectrophobia. They happen to have an unreasonable fear being in front of the mirror. This phobia goes hand in hand with another offbeat phobia known as body dysomorphic disorder. In this type of phobia, the person has extreme fear for their own reflection. They can’t bear to look at themselves at the mirror.

Turophobia

turophobia
Everybody likes cheese, right? Well, WRONG ! For some among us, cheese scares the living daylights out of them. Yes, you heard that right – Turophobia, is the fear of cheese. For these people, every breakfast is a visit to a scare ride – which, naturally is fixed by excluding cheese from their diet.

Coulrophobia

clowns
It’s hard to classify this as an ‘offbeat’ phobia actually, since clowns scare quite a lot of kids (and adults) these days. Once very funny, apparently, maybe in late 19th century or so, when people had strict dress codes in the society, and clowns were outrageously funny due to violating those codes in all levels. But these days clowns have * something * that’s not quite like that anymore. In any case, there are some people whom this affects much more than the average person who is a little bit ‘wary’ when up against the clowns, and this is called Coulrophobia.

Nomophobia

namophobia
Many people actually do fall in this category, some know it but others don’t really have a clue if they do suffer from this offbeat phobia. Have you ever become over anxious when your phone has no credit? Or when you forgot to charge it and it keeps blinking like a raccoon, signifying low battery? Or better/worse still, have you ever become anxious when you are out of a phones range service or anxious when you misplace your phone? If yes then you are a victim of Nomophobia. The best part you don’t have to know, ignore you read it and move to the next offbeat phobia. Ignorance is bliss.

Didaskaleinophobia

Didaskaleinophobia
Don’t mistake this offbeat phobia with truancy. Thought they evolve around the same place – i.e. the school – didaskaleinophia is true. Another name for this offbeat phobia is the ‘school phobia’. It is mostly prevalent with younger students aged 7 to 11 years. This particular group of students are said to be extremely anxious about being separated from their parents hence there panic attacks when at schools.

Ablutophobia

Ablutophobia
As far as many people are concerned cleanness is next to godly next. Nearly everybody loves to look good and smell fresh. But there is a particular group of people that don’t find water on their body their cup of tea. They fall on an offbeat phobia group known as the ablutophobia. These individuals suffer from recurrent fear of bathing, cleaning or washing. The most affected group is women and children. Though it is not a common phobia, men are just lucky for not being mostly affected other wise men will have been jailed for stinking to high heavens if they happened to be victims of this offbeat phobia.

Bizarre Places and their Bizarre Stories

Its magic

The world is home to some of the most bizarre places. These bizarre places carry with themselves some scary stories that might leave your knees shaking and trembling like high school girl before prom. From ghost towns to eerie haunted houses where spirits of the dead keep vigil, the list is uncannily long. Here is some of these bizarre places and their nail biting, pants soiling stories.

Egypt

tutankhamun

From its rich history of gods and goddess there was no way Egypt would miss out in this list. We start with the Farafra Desert where it is alleged that people have seen the ghost of Akhenaten, who was cursed by the high priest to wonder in the desert forever because he had abolished the Egyptian gods when he became a pharaoh.

Egypt also hosts the Valley of the Kings that many have reported to see ghosts of Egyptian Pharaoh, donning a golden collar and ridding a chariot. This could be one of the pharaohs, maybe one from one of the royal tombs that are found in the Valley of the Kings.

Also in the in the Valley of the Kings, they discovered the tomb of King Tut. Now, strange things started happening immediately after the discovery. Fist, it is alleged that the day the tomb was discovered all the lights in Cairo went off. The British aristocrat who sponsored the digs, Lord Carnarvon, died soon after : he accidentally slashed a mosquito bite he received, which caused blood poisoning, leading to his swift death. The interesting thing is, one of the egyptologists present during the opening of the tomb, Arthur Weigall, joked about Carnarvon saying that “I give him six weeks to live”, six weeks before his death.

After opening of the tomb in 29 November 1922, a series of deaths of people who were in or involved with the digs or the people in the digs followed :

– One of the visitors to the tomb, George Jay Gould I died on 16 May 1923 due to a fever he developed after his visit.
– Carnarvon’s half brother, Colonel The Hon. Aubrey Herbert, became nearly blind and died on 26 September 1923 from blood poisoning
– The radiologist who x-rayed Tutankhamun’s mummy, Sir Archibald Douglas-Reid, died on 15 January 1924 from a mysterious illness
– Member of Carter’s excavation team, A. C. Mace, died in 1928 from arsenic poisoning
– Carnarvon’s half brother and Aubrey Herbert’s full brother Mervyn Herbert, died on 26 May 1929 reportedly from “malarial pneumonia”
– Carter’s personal secretary Richard Bethell found smothered to death in his bed on 15 November 1929
– His father Richard Luttrell Pilkington Bethell, threw himself off his seventh floor apartment and died on 20 February 1930

Out of 58 people who were present during tomb’s opening, 8 died within a dozen years.

China

buma inn in beijing

We start with Beijing, China. It is alleged that at Buma Inn there is a restless ghost that walks around looking for the chef who poisoned him. What this restless ghost doesn’t know is that the alleged chef stabbed himself and died the same night the patron (the ghost) died. Next on our list of oddity is the Huiguan Opera House. Its bizarreness stems from the fact that it was constructed on an ancient graveyard. With that said you could be sure that some eerie stuff had to go down there – like it is said that if a stone was thrown into the courtyard of this house you would hear someone scolding you despite the fact nobody is there.

Mexico

chicen itza

Ostensibly Mexico also happens to share some of these spooky stories in its territory. Its first spooky story is found in the Brownsville Cemetery bizarrely referred to as the Bloody hill; it alleged that the ghost of a man that was slain after being tortured walks there. It is said that this ghosts walks with its head in his hands and it appears at exactly midnight.

Pueblo hotel is also a haunted place. Legend has it that it was a hospital and one of the nurses went crazy after being told to quit her job. She poisoned all the patients and killed herself in one of the bathrooms. It is alleged that nowadays in the bathrooms people hear the lady killing herself.

Weird Facts about Human Body

The human body has some really weird facts about it. Here are some weird stuffs about the body that you may know or maybe have no clue about them:

Human Brain

The brain

It’s the integral part our intelligence but do not let that delude you that it doesn’t have some weird facts about it. First of all the human brain is 80% water. Yep, weird that all your intelligence is housed in a squishy, pink and jelly like organ. So never stay dehydrated because you might just be messing with you intelligence. That explains why you can’t think straight when you dehydrated.
The brain also happens to have another quite weird fact in that it is immune to pain despite the fact that it is where the nerves send their signal when you feel anything. Have you ever wondered about the speed that these nerve impulses send the signal to and from the brain? Its 170 miles per hour! This is why you feel pain immediately after hammering your finger. Ouch!

The brain also happens to carry infinite information as long as you experience anything. But the problem is whether or not you can interpret or recall. This explains why scientists have not been able to replica anything like a brain with all the know-how and advancement in science.

Internal organs

Internal organs

This is where we get to deal with the yuckiest of the weird facts. First the largest internal organ is the small intestines. Yep, don’t be fooled by the word ‘small’ because these intestines are four times as long as an average tall adult. But in a lighter note you can actually survive without most of your internal organs. Yes that’s right; you can actually survive with one kidney and 75% of your liver and 80% of your intestines. We can’t actually recommend any of the above because we don’t know how it would feel without some of your internal body parts. Probably you would lose some weight.

Your stomach also has some weird stuff about it. Apparently your stomach acid can dissolve razor blades. This explains the ever rising cases of ulcers. It is also important to note that you get a new stomach lining every 3 to 4 days. But despite your heroic dissolving stomach properties (dissolving razors) never try to ingest razors blades.

Hair

Human hair and nails

They maybe the numb parts of your body but people have been known to take really good care of them (especially women). Hair loss is a nightmare to many but facts are facts ; did you know that you already lose an average of 60-100 strands a day? Yes you do, but there is an exemption for our bald brethren. The facial hair also ostensibly grows faster than any other hair in the body.

On the nails side, the middle finger nail grows faster than any other nail. It’s probably that size matters.

Weird Laws Around the World Part I

stupid laws
It takes all sorts of weird people to make a world. But what’s more disturbing is the weird laws that some head of state impose in order to keep ‘law and order’. Politicians are said to be quite peculiar creatures and you can trust them to come up with such weird laws. They have been known to promise bridges even where there are no rivers, so it would not hit you hard if your local congressman comes up with the most blatantly useless, boneheaded, bubble headed and fatuous laws known to mankind. To make it easier for you to understand what I am talking about here, I have listed a few weird laws and aptly categorized them as follows:

Weird Sex

Weird laws about sex

California, Bakersfield:

It is probably one of the most sensitive areas to impose a law. A man’s or woman’s (just to be gender sensitive) bedroom. But that has not stopped states from imposing laws on sex. Weird laws to be exact. To start with, we visit a law in California, Bakersfield. It’s crazy that they come up with a law stating that it is required to use a condom if you are to have sex with Satan.

Who?

Yes you heard that right, Satan. I wonder if Satan lives in California. Hmmmm!?

Washington D.C.:

Another bombshell of a weird sex law is found in Washington D.C.; apparently it is illegal to use any other sex style other than missionary style. I don’t have an idea how they ensure couples stick to that style in their bed rooms.

weird wedding laws

Weird laws about marriage

California, Colorado, Texas and Montana:

In California, Colorado, Texas and Montana marriage can take place even in the absence of both the groom and the bride if the two are members of the U.S army. They call it double-proxy weddings. I wonder who kisses who when the presiding priest announces you may now kiss the bride!

Massachusetts:

But Salem, in Massachusetts takes the prize home for its weird law in married couple. The law prohibits any married couple from sleeping naked in a rented room. This law leaves you wondering how couples get intimate in hotel rooms.

weird alcohol laws

Weird laws on alcohol

Georgia:

To start with the alcohol laws, we kick off to Georgia, where, apparently it is illegal to exhibit drunkenness in public, but to soften that law it is perfectly okay to drink alcohol in the public. Talk about puzzling and conflicting law especially if you just had one too many for the road in Georgia.

Texas:

Rogue minors just have to love Texas. This has to stem from the fact that it is actually legal for minors to get wasted on booze as long as they are in the company of their parents or a spouse who is 21 years and above.

Colorado & Pennsylvania:

In Colorado it is illegal to be intoxicated on booze and still be riding a horse. But a perfect mismatch to that law must be the one from Pennsylvania that sees no problem with a drunk ridding on a horse. The law states that it is perfectly okay to be drunk and still ride a horse !

5 Most Bizarre Things Reported By The People Of Walmart

The people of Walmart would have come across a lot of weirdos; that’s for sure. Walmart is one of the most popular multinational retail corporations. They have chains of large discount department stores and warehouse stores. As the new branches of Walmart are opening, sometimes, there are bizarre things that are reported by the management of Walmart. Most of the folks go to Walmart just for shopping purposes. However, there are some people who visited Walmart just to do strange things. Some of these bizarre things that happened at Walmart are compiled in this article.

1) Sex at Walmart:

Walmart is famous for providing a variety of stuffs under the same roof. However, it is rare to find people  having sex at Walmart. It was happening at a local Kansas store when the people of Walmart found a couple having sex in their store. Maybe, that couple was not able to afford a motel for some private time. They must be thinking that Walmart also offers some kind of discount on having sex. Actually, Justin Call and Tina Gianakon went to Walmart to shoplift a bottle of lubricant. Maybe, that lubricant bottle had some kind of magic potion which filled them with instant desire. They decided not to hold their desires inside for long. They started having full-on sex inside the store and in the presence of many customers. However, both of them were arrested by police after their adventurous sexual experience.

2) Human Teeth:

One person went to the Walmart store in Massachusetts. He wanted to buy a new wallet. However, when he chose a brand-new wallet, he found out 10 human teeth in it. Instantly, he informed the people of Walmart. Further they called police to investigate this bizarre incident. After the investigation, the police have confirmed that they were real human teeth. However, they were not able to figure out the crazy owner of the teeth.

3) Delivery of a Baby:

We have seen in many movies that women gave birth at weird places. Most of the people think that all these are unreal and dramatic. However, there is some reality in it. In July 2013, a 16-year old girl gave birth to a baby boy at a Walmart store. She was visiting the store with her mother. The most weird and bizarre thing is the claim of the girl. According to her, she was not aware of her pregnancy until her water broke. She gave birth in the bathroom of the store. Initially, the baby was not breathing but the people of Walmart successfully managed to give the baby CPR.

4) The People of Walmart Stunned by a Murder in Store:

Lilia Blandin was working at the bank located at the Walmart. One day, she had a heated argument with her husband. As a result, he stabbed her to death in front of the customers. He stabbed her repeatedly and escaped from the crime scene before the security guards arrived. Initially, he succeeded in the escape from the store. The weird thing is that the people of Walmart kept the store open for shoppers after this incident. However, the police made the crime scene inaccessible to the public later. Imagine how strange it would be for the shoppers to continue shopping in the presence of a bloody crime scene.

5) Romantic Wedding:

A regular customer of Walmart, Wayne Brandenburg fell in love with a cashier at the store. Later, he took her out to a Chinese buffet. Then on, they started dating regularly. Finally, they decided to get married and they thought that Walmart will be the best location for their marriage. The people of Walmart let them arrange their wedding inside the store. All the things for their wedding were totally arranged from the Walmart store in North Carolina. Their beautiful and delicious wedding cake was also made in the bakery of the Walmart.
