Legal loophole may help company freeze people alive

In pursuit of life everlasting, some turn to Dog. Others turn to science. Or rather, something science-ish.
If you’ve ever hoped to be cryogenically frozen, you might come across a legal hurdle: while human cryonics is legal in several countries, you have to be dead before going into the cryonics tank. Otherwise, freezing someone alive is tantamount to murder. So, as it is, you can only get your dead body or head frozen—and when thawed, you’d still be dead.

Social media inflames people's passions – and builds extremist divisions

The people of the United States continue to learn how polarized and divided the nation has become. In one study released in late October by the Pew Research Center, Americans were found to have become increasingly partisan in their views. On issues as diverse as health care, immigration, race and sexuality, Americans today hold more extreme and more divergent views than they did a decade ago. The reason for this dramatic shift is a device owned by more than three out of every four Americans.

Polygamous cult leader was arrested in Mexico

The leader of a polygamous Mormon cult was arrested last week when U.S. law enforcement officials stormed the American fugitive’s ranch in northern Mexico.

Over a hundred U.S. and Mexican officials joined forces to storm the gates of Black’s heavily fortified ranch after two of his sons and a young boy appeared dead on his property. Investigators say they believe the three victims were killed execution style at the door of Black’s trailer.

An unidentified woman and her daughter jumped off a local Indian train Saturday to escape a group of men attempting to harm the young girl.
While aboard the Howrah-Jodhpur Express, the 40-year-old mother made numerous attempts to ward off the group of 10 to 15 men, but her efforts were futile. The woman allegedly made two complaints to the onboard constables but suspected the men bribed the police due to their continued harassment.

‘Grossly unfit for office’

After a fifth woman came forward with sexual misconduct allegations against Alabama’s wingnut Senate candidate Roy Moore, the state’s largest newspaper called on him to drop out of the race.

‘WTF is wrong with you’

Twitter users lashed out at lunatic fringe wingnut hack Coulter this week after she suggested that Alabama wingnut Senate candidate Roy Moore’s alleged sexual abuse of a 14-year-old was like President John F. Kennedy having a consensual affair with a 19-year-old.

Moore was banned from the Gadsden Mall in the 70’s for ‘repeatedly’ hitting on teen girls

Though Alabama’s wingnut Senate nominee Roy Moore and his syophants call allegations that he “dated” teen girls when he was in his 30’s politically-motivated fake news, people from Gadsden, where Moore lived at the time of the allegations, say they remember him “badgering” girls.

One Alabama man spent five years in jail for less than what Roy Moore is accused of doing to 14-year-old

Joseph Lee Musso was accused of enticing a 14-year-old girl for sexual purposes in December 2004. Instead of running for the U.S. Senate, however, Musso ended up in jail.
