Dozens Of Graves Dug Up And Opened By Vandals In A Louisiana Cemetery

Cemeteries are supposed to be hallowed places of respect and contemplation. The dead are supposed to be left to rest in peace. It is both a written and unwritten law, don’t disturb the dead for any reason.

Unfortunately for those laid to rest in Merrick Cemetery in Violet, Louisiana, someone decided to desecrate a large number of graves.  

asergeev.com

Pictures and videos have recently come out showing the burial ground in complete disarray, with coffins, headstones, and human remains strewn about like last week’s trash. Families are at a loss, outraged by the callous nature of this crime, as well they should.

This is a level of disrespect that I have a hard time attempting to describe, but the complications from this situation get even more confusing.

Worker Finds $39,000 At A Goodwill Store, Then She Does What Most People Would Never Do

One Goodwill worker got the surprise of her life when she was at work, and how she handled it will warm your heart. Kindell Keyes is an assistant manager at the Goodwill in New York. While she was going through the donations, she came across a purse that felt like it had something in it.

New York Times/Nicole Craine

As Keyes opened the purse, she saw an envelop that looked like it was full. When she opened it, she thought someone was playing a joke on her. “I started looking around like, who’s setting me up? There’s no way.” Inside the purse was $39,000 cash.

What would you do with that much money? Probably not what Keyes did…

Retired Tennis Star Gets Tackled And Wrongfully Arrested, Now The Cop Is Suing Him

All too often we see stories in the news of police brutality and misconduct. Though it is so often portrayed in the media, it is important to remember that it is not all cops, just a few bad apples that give the rest of them a bad reputation. Videos of young black men being gunned down in the street by officers or stories of evidence tampering garner major headlines, and the story is usually the same.

NY Daily News

But one case out of New York City is changing the usual narrative, and not for the better. In 2015, retired tennis pro James Blake was standing outside his hotel when he was tackled to the ground by NYPD officer James Frascatore, who was dressed in civilian clothes at the time.

NY Daily News

This was a case of mistaken identity that was taken way to far. The NYPD originally states that Blake had not been “manhandled”. However, Blake was able to obtain the surveillance footage from the hotel, which blatantly proved otherwise.. Only then was an apology forthcoming.

But the story gets even stranger…

Mom Who Refuses To Vaccinate Son Is Facing Jail Time

To vaccinate, or not to vaccinate, that is the question.

Over the last decade, the number of parents opting out of vaccinating their children have been steadily on the rise. Some of these parents are under religious obligation to not vaccinate their children, while others cite safety concerns and autism as reasons to opt out.

One such parent is Rebecca Bredow, and she’s even willing to go to jail as long as it means her son will remain vaccine-free.

“This is about choice,” the mom told The Washington Post. “This is about having my choices as a mother to be able to make medical choices for my child.”

WXYZ

In 2008, Bredow and her ex-husband, James Horne, made the decision to delay their son’s vaccines for three months after he was born. Three months turned into two years, and now at nine years old, the child has never been immunized.

“I believe in the choice of the parent to make the right decision based on their knowledge of vaccines,” Bredow said in another interview with WXYZ.

Everything seemed to have been working well until Bredow and Horne annulled their marriage, and their son became caught up in a nasty custody battle.

The ‘Duck Dynasty’ Family Just Grew By One

The Robertson family, best known for their record-breaking reality show, Duck Dynasty, just grew a little bit bigger.

Alan the “Beardless Brother” and his wife Lisa are proud grandparents after their daughter Alex Robertson Mancuso welcomed her second child with her husband Vincent Mancuso.

Alex and her parents weren’t part of the original cast when the reality series premiered on A&E. They joined the show during the fourth season, and made their first appearance when Phil and his wife, Miss Kay, renewed their vows.

Fans of the show will also remember Alex and Vinnie from the episode of Duck Dynasty where they helped Miss Kay open her bakery.

DWTS Pro Takes Night Off For A ‘Personal Issue’ And Now He May Not Come Back

Maksim Chmerkovskiy has been a fan favorite on Dancing With The Stars for as long as anyone can remember. The older of the Chmerkovskiy brothers, Maks is often referred to as “the bad boy of ballroom.”

Maks won season 18 of DWTS along with Olympic ice dancer Meryl Davis.

ABC

The professional dancer took some time off from the show here and there, but he’s always been one of the main cast members. People have fallen in love with not only his dancing, but his personal life as well. Maks is married to fellow dancer Petra Murgatroyd, and the two welcomed a son, Shai, in January 2017.

This season, Maks is paired with TV host and former Miss America, Vanessa Lachey. It’s just three weeks into the season, fans of the show may have noticed something wrong with this week’s episode.

Maks was nowhere to be found this week, and the reason is pretty interesting.

School Districts Warn Parents That Flutes Handed Out By Their Schools Could Be Contaminated With Semen

Mandatory music programs are often a great asset to any school. In theory, they teach children valuable skills in reading and performing music, and give them a new appreciation for music as an art form.

Google Sites

However, music programs can also be some of the most stressful parts of school, both on students and on the teachers. The students have to learn to read music from the ground up, which is no simple task, especially if it’s not something they take to right away. Even if they have an easier time understanding it than some, there’s the endless hours of practicing they have to do to actually learn to play the instrument well.

Simcoe

In some ways the music teachers have it even worse. They’re stuck trying to teach skills that some people spend literal decades trying to master to a group of a few dozen students who probably don’t even care a little bit, and that’s before you get into actually having to correct their playing. Have you ever heard 30+ people all loudly playing the wrong note? It’s pretty unbearable.

Unless you’re Jack BlackParamount

Apparently one music teacher in California finally had enough, because they’re now under investigation for giving kids instruments with some pretty disgusting surprises.

The details are pretty disturbing…

Pregnant Reporter Proves That Anything Really Can Happen On Live TV

When News 4 New York anchor, Natalie Pasquarella, was doing her report live on air, no one knew that anything was wrong until after the show ended.

Just over a week ago, Pasquarella showed off her baby bump indicating she had a month to go in her pregnancy.

Pasquarella was originally from Ohio and graduated from Kent State University, where she interned at NY1 News in NYC.  She started her career working as a news anchor, reporter and producer at WTOV-TV in Ohio. She then moved to NBC 4 in Charlotte, NC where she was co-anchor for the weekday news before joining as co-anchor for News 4 New York.

While on air discussing Twitter’s new character limit near the end of the show, Pasquarella let out an uneasy laugh, that most people probably didn’t notice. It was at that moment the 35-year-old reporter went into labor.

What Should You Be For Halloween Based On Your Zodiac Sign?

Prepping your Halloween costume is always stressful. But it doesn’t have to be! Go by our handy Halloween guide, all based off your zodiac sign.

As an Aries, you are both courageous and impulsive. Often looked at as the superheroes of the zodiac, an Aries can never go wrong with a classic like Wonder Woman, Spiderman, or even your own made-up superhero!

Tauruses tend to be loving, but also a little greedy! You can pick one of those traits, or combine them and be something like an Evil Queen of Hearts. The Taurus sign is also associated with luxury, so maybe something glamorous like a movie star or one of the kids from Toddlers and Tiaras.

Geminis are witty, but can also be superficial. A clever costume based off puns is preferred. Take my costume from last year, for example. Grab a bunch of sponges, attach pictures of your selfies, and then stick the sponges to yourself: you’re self-absorbed.

My Pictures

Cancers are emotional and moody, so why not go straight to the source? Either pick your most common emotion (is hunger an emotion?) or keep it vague…go as a mood ring! Dress in silver or gray, then keep colored pieces of fabric on your shirt and change them up whenever you feel a new emotion.

What This Viral Facebook Post Can Teach Us About The Sacrifices Parents Make

As a kid you don’t notice the fine details of life. When I was young all I had to do was go to school, do my homework and help out around the house, everything else was either done for me or provided to me by my parents.

My mom has been a waitress and bartender for nearly 40 years. When I was a teenager she would work the mornings at a breakfast restaurant, come home and catch some sleep before heading off to bartend overnight. She never complained, never made excuses, never blamed me for how hard she had to work. We didn’t have a lot, but we had enough and I never truly looked at the why or the how.

UPDATE: LAPD Confirms Tom Petty Has Died At Age 66

Tom Petty is one of the most prolific American singer-songwriters in rock and roll history. With a string of hits from not only his well-known band, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, but also his other projects like The Traveling Wilburys and Mudcrutch, the man has been a driving force in the music industry for over 40 years.

Even his solo career has earned him a number of awards, and he has the accolades to go along with it. It was recently established that Petty has sold over 80 Million albums worldwide, several of which have gone Platinum, and in 2002 he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Consequence of Sound

He’s also remained a huge advocate for artistic control and the ability for artists to have free reign over the rights to their art, and has actively sued several companies who he’s felt have tried to take advantage of him and his music.

Suffice to say, Petty is a genuine musical legend, which is why it’s with great sadness that the 66 year old rocker has just been reported as being rushed to the hospital.

TV Host Goes Crazy Trying To Solve This Incredibly Tough Puzzle [Video]

The hunt for gold has driven mankind to do some very silly things, but this contest is definitely one of the strangest cases ever.

It takes place on the tiny Japanese island of Sado, where a historic gold mine operated for almost 400 years. Since it closed in the 1980s the mine has been turned into a museum, and along with lessons about the island’s history it holds a world-famous challenge for visitors.

The Sado Brick is a 27-pound solid gold brick, housed in a glass case. The contest is very simple: if you can reach through the 3.3 inch hole and pull out the brick (which is 3 inches wide at the base) you get a special prize. It’s deceptively simple, which is why it draws so many eager contestants.

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVGHtJnmmsY?feature=oembed]

Unfortunately, once they get their hands on the solid brick they realize just how hard it is to pull it (and your hand) through the tiny hole. The challenge was so notoriously difficult that a TV host was called in to prove it was even possible.

“Hi! I’m Chewy! My owner was in an abusive relationship and couldn’t afford me to get on the flight. She didn’t want to leave me with all her heart, but she has no other option. My ex-boyfriend kicked my dog when we were fighting and he has a big knot on his head. He probably needs a vet. I love Chewy sooo much – please love and take care of him.”

10 Unique Tombstones That Make You Rethink How You Want To Be Buried

When we die what kind of a legacy do we leave behind? For most of us it is not something that can be quantified in a history book, but that doesn’t mean we can’t leave something behind to get people talking. These are some of the most unique, strange, beautiful and down right haunting tombstones in existence.

Boredom Therapy

This tombstone is both beautiful and creepy at the same time. The sentiment of a child being in heaven being pushed on a swing by Jesus is something most parents would love to believe. But the image of Jesus’s half-body melting out of a stone arch makes it look a little creepy. Either way most of us would stop to take a look at this unique headstone.

College Humor

This tombstone is more than a little hard to comprehend, this appears to be a tribute to beastiality? I have no words to describe this, maybe it had a different meaning back when it was originally commissioned, but now all I can do is stare and laugh uncomfortably.

Hollywood Grave Hunter

I guess when you are well-known for something in life you may as well immortalize yourself that way in death as well. This is the gravestone of  W. Jack Crowell, who owned the National Clothespin Company, the last wooden clothespin manufacturer in the United States.

Amusing Planet

This is kind of awesome. Several years ago a graveyard in rural Indiana was being moved to make room to run a new highway through. But before graves can be moved, every effort has to be made to reach out to the family of the deceased to ask for permission. Well, one grandson wasn’t having it, and he refused to allow his grandmother to be moved. With no other options the state eventually had to build the road around the grave.

College Humor

I make yearly trips to visit some of my friend’s graves on the anniversary of their deaths, it’s my way of making sure I never forget. I rarely stay long because standing there in front of headstone for extended periods can be tiring and off-putting. Whoever came up with this idea got it right. Their visitors can sit down, crack a bottle and have a drink with their fallen friend or family member.

Reality Stars Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt Welcome First Child

We all know more about Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag than we’d probably care to admit. The former stars of MTV’s The Hills haven’t left the spotlight, even though the show has long since been cancelled.

In 2006, Heidi Montag was just a 20-year-old woman looking to make it big. She befriended Lauren Conrad, and the two became roommates staring in the MTV show. Montag also began dating Spencer Pratt, who ultimately ended the friendship between her and Conrad.

Heidi and Spencer, also known as Speidi, became known for their outrageous behavior and desire to be famous. In 2008, Heidi and Spencer got married in Mexico and just one year later, Heidi made headlines after announcing she would be undergoing 10 plastic surgeries at once.

“I love my body. I still feel a little fragile, but I’ve never felt more beautiful and sexier,” Montag said after the surgery. “I didn’t know I could have this much confidence. I see an upgraded version of me. It’s a new face and a new energy. It’s a new person and I feel like almost all of the things I didn’t want to be and who I turned into kind of got chiseled away. So I’m very excited for the world to see the new me and a real me.”

Speidi has stayed together through thick and thin, and this pregnancy was just what they needed to make their lives complete.

“The look on her face, I can’t even describe it,” Spencer said. “She was literally glowing. I thought she was about to say she made muffins or banana bread.”

“Heidi has wanted to be a mom since the day I met her,” Spencer said. “She has planned for and thought about this.”

“I have never been more excited,” Montag, 31, told Us Weekly. “The reality is sinking in that we are going to have a child! I’ve read every pregnancy book, and now I realize I don’t know anything.”

And now, their little bundle of joy is finally here!
