Crazy Crap

Pine-Sol Apple Juice Debacle Of 2018

Preschoolers served Pine-Sol in juice mix-up

(CNN) — Instead of apple juice, children at a Hawaii preschool were served Pine-Sol by mistake, according to a Hawaii Department of Health report.

A classroom assistant at Kilohana United Methodist Church in East Oahu was preparing a snack for the children and grabbed a bottle of the cleaning liquid from a clean-up cart in the kitchen on November 27. The assistant apparently mistook it for apple juice because of its similar color, the school’s director told the health department inspector.

The teacher was helping students in the restroom when the assistant poured the Pine-Sol into cups in the classroom. The teacher “smelled that it was not apple juice and stopped the students from drinking it,” according to the report.

The cleaning liquid was in the original Pine-Sol bottle with its label. The inspector noted that a rubbish can and other cleaning supplies were on the cart, and no food items.

CNN affiliate KHON reports that emergency medical services evaluated three students who took small sips of the cleaning liquid, but none needed treatment.

The assistant no longer works at the school, KHON reports.

5 Things You Didn’t Know About Charles Manson…

 

So….I have to confess that when my Mom sent me this list…I actually knew all 5 of the items listed below.  I seem to have an obsession with True Crime…and Manson has always fascinated me!  Have actually read the book Helter Skelter twice.  Go figure!

helter-skelter-book

Anyway…here goes:

Manson Had a Previous Criminal Record

Manson’s first known crime was committed at age 12 when he stole money at a grocery store. He later stole cars and took them over state lines, which is a federal crime, forged checks and stole mail. At age 13, he committed an armed robbery. At 17, he committed rape and was accused of domestic abuse when he was 20 years old.

He Had Previously Visited the Home of Sharon Tate

Manson considered himself a great musician and had made friends with Dennis Wilson, who was the drummer with the popular music group, the Beach Boys. Manson ended up living at Wilson’s house for several months, along with about a dozen of his followers, costing Wilson a great deal of money and even stealing a gold record from the musician. Despite this, Wilson introduced Manson to record producer Terry Melcher, actress Doris Day’s son, and they visited the home where Sharon Tate lived.

Although Manson Masterminded the Murders, He Never Participated in Them

Manson’s cult followers are known to have killed eight people at Roman Polanski’s home, including pregnant actress Sharon Tate; Abigail Folger, the coffee heiress; Wojciech Frykowski, author; Jay Sebring, a hairstylist; and Steven Parent. Cult follower Bobby Beausoleil, accompanied by Susan Atkins and Mary Brunner, killed Gary Hinman, who was the music teacher who introduced Manson to Dennis Wilson. Following the Tate murder, he and his followers murdered Leno LaBianca, a supermarket exec, and his wife, because Manson thought the Tate murders were handled sloppily.

The Name “Helter Skelter” Was Taken From a Beatles Tune

Manson had the grand ambition of running the country, and he thought a race war would do that. He called his movement “Helter Skelter” after the song by the Beatles. Manson reasoned that blacks would win the race war initially but would be unable to run the country themselves, and that is where white people would step in. He used the fear of a war between the races to compel his followers to commit the murders.

A Change in California Law Saved Manson From the Death Penalty

Manson, along with his followers Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel, Tex Watson and Leslie van Houten, were all convicted and sentenced to the death penalty in California in 1971. However, the death penalty was overturned in California the following year, so all their death sentences were commuted to life in prison. Manson died in prison at age 83 on November 19, 2017, after never having expressed any remorse for the killings.

Weird Things You Can Buy On Amazon…

The Amazon logo is seen on a podium duri

Ok….so my Mom knows that I am an Amazonaholic.  Seriously…there should be a support group for us.  (*note to self…start support group…check Amazon for publicity and advertising materials)

But there are things on there that I would not buy!  For example…Milk!  Or Condoms – I sure as heck don’t need advertisements for those popping up all over my Facebook screen (oh yea…they already do)

Anyway…My mom sent me an email with “The Weirdest Things You Can Buy On Amazon” and I thought I would share a few with you!  Now…I am not sharing them all….as I honestly might buy a couple of the things listed.  But…I am weird.

Anyway…here goes:

The Town That Spent 25 Years Underwater

Town 1

This is Villa Epecuen, an old tourist town south of Buenos Aires that spent a quarter of a century underwater. Established in the 1920s on the banks of a salt lake, the town was home to over 5,000 residents and a holiday destination to thousands more vacationers from the Argentinian capital.

In 1985, a dam burst and buried the town in 33 feet of salt water, rendering it a modern-day Atlantis. Initially, people waited on their roofs, hoping for the water to recede. It didn’t, and within two days, the place was a devastated ghost town.

In 2009, the waters began to recede and what emerged resembles an apocalyptic world.

Evenly-spaced dead trees still line what used to be streets, rusty bed frames poke out from concrete rubble and sign posts point to nowhere.

Amazingly, one resident remained in this desolate place. Pablo Novak was the only person not to leave his hometown when the water swallowed it up in 1985. He lives in a stone hut with a fridge and a basic cooker. I guess there’s no place like home…

Town 7

A Cat Maze*

Cat Maze 1

The title of this entry is called “A Cat Maze” – and for those of you that noticed…I put an * next to the title.  There is a reason for this.

The asterisk is used to call out a footnote, especially when there is only one on the page.

My footnote for this title is that I am also calling this entry “Why This Man Will Never Have a Girlfriend or Wife”

With that all aside…what he does do for his cats…his quite elaborate…and a-MAZE-ing!

A Cat Maze

And if you are a cat lover…totally worth the 2:09 minutes of your life!

If you do not like cats…you may enjoy this guys take on why he hates cats:

INSECT PIZZA – WTF??

unnamed

When my mom sent me an email with a list of State Fair Foods….

And the ones that you should try and the ones to avoid….

I was not expecting INSECT PIZZA TO BE ON EITHER LIST!!!!

Here is what the Indianapolis Star said about it:

“Insect pizza: Great Instagram photo op, but have a ton of cold root beer ready to wash down this one. The crickets, scorpions and mealworms lack flavor, but all those little legs and wings and thoughts of things will stay with you for hours. Pro tip: The fried mealworms are easier to eat. No legs to get struck between your teeth. The pizza underneath is not bad, thick and bready. Look for Swain’s Fine Foods pizza shop near the 38th Street gate.”

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There is no photo op here!

There is no washing this s**t down here!

WHAT THE BLOODY HELL IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE!???

On a side note…the Deep Fried PB & J looks and sounds AWESOME!

You’re Nuts!!!

So….Once again…Mom sent me another video that had me laughing out loud!

But this one made me chuckle even more because for the first time after living in this house for almost 3 years…JUST TODAY….I saw a squirrel on my back porch just hanging out and having a good time.

Somehow…my mom always gets an email or sees something on the internet THE SAME DAY I tell her about something strange or different that happens in my life.

So…I tell her about the squirrel…she gets this video…she sends it to me…I SHARE IT WITH YOU!

CLICK HERE – MISSION IMPOSSIBLE SQUIRREL VIDEO

I promise…it won’t disappoint!

Man wears strainer….

Now…you would think that a subject line like that would be enough to make you stop and think….WHAT THE HECK!?!

But let me finish the sentence of the email my mom actually sent:

Man wears strainer on his head in driver’s license photo

THIS IS AN ACTUAL CNN NEWS STORY PEOPLE!!!   I AM SCARED FOR OUR FUTURE!!!!!

(CNN) You’ll probably never see a driver’s license photo quite like this.

Strainer Guy

 

It’s of a man with a metal colander on his head. That’s the driver’s license photo of Sean Corbett of Chandler, Arizona. And getting permission for the image to be used took some doing.
He said he went to several Arizona motor vehicle locations for two years before he found one that would let him take the photo with the strainer on his head.
“It’s kind of been a personal mission to keep pushing and not let the naysayers say I can’t,” Corbett told CNN affiliate KNXV.
So why did he insist on being photographed with the colander on his head? Because of his religion, sort of. Corbett calls himself a “pastafarian,” who wears the item as part of his religious headgear.
“Pastafarianism is part of the church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, which says the world was created 5,000 years ago by a Flying Spaghetti Monster,” Corbett said.
If that sounds, well, a little hokey, it’s supposed to be. Corbett admits pastafarianism is more satirical than reverent.
Most states require people to take their driver’s license photos free of headgear or other items, but exceptions are sometimes made for religious reasons. So that’s why Corbett feels he should be able to wear the pasta strainer in his photo.
However, a spokesman with the Arizona Department of Transportation told KNXV that while some exceptions are made for religious headwear, Corbett’s colander getup probably shouldn’t have been allowed, so the state is going to void the photo and driver’s license.
If that happens, Corbett says he’s prepared to wage a legal battle for the right to be photographed with kitchenware on his head.
