Joseph Haef is widely considered an icon in the tattoo world. His skills are incredible, but that is not the only thing that earned him legendary status. Haef also must have the world’s sexiest clientele! Don’t believe us? Well, have a look at the man’s work and some of his canvasses below.
St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson testified that he wasn’t sure if sex with children was a crime in the 1980s, according to documents released Monday. Yes, you read that sentence right.
Carlson, who was at that time chancellor of the Archdiocese of Minneapolis and St. Paul, was deposed as part of a lawsuit against the Twin Cities archdiocese and the Diocese of Winona, Minnesota. Back in the ’80s, it was Carlson’s job to investigate allegations of abuse by priests. But he admitted that he never went to the police, not even when a clergy member reportedly admitted to inappropriate behavior.
In 1994, Carlson left the Twin Cities. In 2009, he became the Archbishop of St. Louis.
The St. Paul law firm Jeff Anderson & Associates released a video in which Carlson is asked whether he’d known it was a crime for adults to have sex with children. In response, Carlson said, “I’m not sure whether I knew it was a crime or not. I understand today it’s a crime.” Well, that’s great!
Carlson was then asked when he first understood that it was a crime for an adult to have sexual intercourse with a child. To that, he answered that he didn’t remember.
However, Jeff Anderson, the attorney who’s representing an alleged clergy abuse victim, released documents showing that Carlson had to have been aware how serious the allegations were because he wrote to the then-Archbishop, John Roach, that the parents of one of the victims were planning to go to the police.
According to NBC News, Anderson submitted a report from a deposition in 1987 in which the now-deceased Bishop Loras Watters admitted that he told Carlson to answer “I don’t remember” if questioned in court. Interestingly enough, Carlson said he had no memory of that conversation. He’s not sure of a whole lot, is he?
The trial against the archdiocese of the Twin Cities is scheduled to begin sometime in September.
Take a moment to sit back, relax and realize that not all is bad with the world.

She has the technique totally down as she whips the candy floss off the stick, shrinks it down to one manageable chunk and shoves it in her mouth. We give her 10 out of 10 for creativity, imagination and ingenuity. The clip has captured the imagination of the world with millions of views, and growing, and we can totally see why.
We’ve condensed it down into a gif for you so that you can enjoy it over and over and over again.
The only thing better than watching it forward is to watch it in reverse

We have seen our fair share of feline internet celebrities but Valkyrie, an adorable two-month-old Maine Coon kitten, is something else. Why, I hear you ask? Well, she has a very ‘human’ face which is both adorable and downright frightening at the same time! It’s not exactly clear what makes her face so ‘human-like’ – it could be her bone structure or her tiny, yet wise eyes.
Instagrammer @valentinafradegrada just set the internet on fire with her brilliant discovery. Namely, that you can wear a bikini upside down! An idea that should easily win a Nobel prize, because it seems women have been wearing their bikini’s completely wrong for years. So ladies, pay close attention as this is how it’s done!
Meet the woman starting trends in the brow department
In December of 2009, a Finnish company called Rovio Entertainment unleashed the app Angry Birds onto the world. And for those who had smart phones back in 2010, you most likely remember the worldwide hysteria this game caused. Everyone and their mother was obsessed with this damn game—with some calling the game “the largest mobile app success the world has seen so far.” By 2014, the game had been downloaded over 2 billion times and earned spin-offs in the form of cook books, comics, movies, TV shows, and a plethora of memorabilia. Well, almost 10 years after the game first hit the app store, Angry Birds has also inspired a Russian woman’s brow game and earned her over 90,000 followers on Instagram. Take a look at the woman whose Angry Bird brows have gone internationally viral and let us know what you think of her strange love for the popular video game.

If you go by the statistics the numbers will pretty much shock you. Okay, don’t get stupid now, no there aren’t more women watching porn than men, but when you find out how many it will drop your socks. However, despite the higher than expected number, it appears that women still rather masturbate while reading… hence the success of the books in the Fifty Shades vein.
Science has stated that men are more visually driven than woman, or is it that men are too lazy to read? We will take you down the female porn rabbit hole and you can get just as sexually educated as we are. Plus, there are a more than a few titillating facts, figures and pictures!
Enjoy the show!
1 out of every 4!
That’s right! Twenty-five percent of the viewers that visit PornHub are women! Which then you have to consider that Pornhub is the 5th most popular. So, there are thousands of women going to the other four higher ranked sites also!
It appears Millennial women are super horny and willing to experiment with 76 percent between the ages of 18-34, 57 percent identify as heterosexual and 32 percent identify as bisexual.
18 percent check in every day to watch porn while 63 percent watch either weekly or a few times a month. Total that up and you have 90 percent of these women watching porn on a regular basis! However, more than half of that group are too embarrassed to admit to watching.
I’m Not Worthy!
Despite their desire to indulge “51% of respondents think it’s as acceptable for women to watch porn as it is for men.”
A large majority of the women said they prefer to watch porn alone. That was clarified by YouPorn reporting that “a whopping 89% of respondents prefer to watch porn alone,” which they deemed, “Not incredibly surprising since 50% of our respondents are ‘single’, 27% are ‘dating’ and only about 20% are ‘married’.”
Now the real reasons why!
Thirty-three percent of the women chose their favorite videos based on who similar the female pornstar resembled them in “age, weight, ethnicity etc.,”
Yoga! This ancient practice originating in India incorporates a person getting in touch and disciplining themselves physically, mentally and spiritually. Although practiced with the reverence of a religion, yoga at times has fallen victim to pop culture fads; take for instance, the 1990s introduction of hip hop yoga.
Despite all the bizarre configurations yoga may have gone through, there is one thing that never changes…at the core yoga is about mind and body becoming one. Well, I guess that would certainly explain why some people feel it is easier to achieve a higher plane within their yoga experience by being completely naked while executing Vriksasana…the tree pose.
So, for all you people who are a fan of yoga or naked girls doing yoga, enjoy!
Rosie Rees is a 30-year-old woman from Australia who conducts a women only naked yoga class that’s meant to encourage these ladies to love their bodies, no matter what shape or size.
“It’s not about doing the downward dog naked… it’s about self-acceptance, stepping out of the comfort zone and cultivating courage. I’d say it’s a catalyst. Nude yoga is such a courageous thing to do but when these women leave my classes, they feel comfortable in their own skin,” said Rees, as reported by the Daily Mail UK.
“Women are very hard on themselves but when they walk into this beautiful space, they learn how to feel like to be an acceptance of their body. Particularly mothers who have children – their bodies change so much. It’s amazing for them to have gratitude for their body by the end of the class,” Rees tells the Daily Mail UK.
Age is not a factor and women of all ages partake. Rees says that recently she has seen an influx of older woman signing up. “There are also women in their 60s and 70s embracing their bodies. We have women of all ages joining. They either want to try something different, make changes in their lives or tick it off their bucket list,” says Rees.
“We do meditation, everyone talks about why they are here – the stories are very healing – and then we do a one hour nude yoga session. If you have body image issues or a repulsion about coming in, these classes will help you overcome these challenges.”
Rees says, “The first time I did naked yoga, I felt insecure and judgmental about my own body. I felt embarrassed, uncomfortable and shameful. But the more I did it, the more comfortable I felt in my own skin. I realized how much impact this would bring to a group setting.”
Just four years ago, Rees was working in a corporate office when she decided to quit her job and open her own yoga studio. “I’ve become a happier, more calm and relaxing person. Yoga has helped every aspect of my life. It even kicked my bad habits like drinking and smoking. I get a natural high from yoga,” said Rees.
Looking for gore sites? Well, you’re not alone. In some way, shape or form we are all drawn to watching gory, scary or violent content. Watching shocking content stimulates us in a way that triggers our primitive “fight or flight” instincts. Your blood pressure rises, your heart beats faster and your pupils dilate, all while you’re sitting safely in your chair. Most people enjoy this uncomfortable sensation, but some types of content can cross a line that can be overwhelming. For some people that is simply watching a horror movie, while for others that is gore. Below we have rounded up 10 gore sites that provide this sort of creepy content. While the unsettling nature of this sort of content obviously makes it hard to watch, these sites do provide an uncensored look at real life news that will leave an impression unlike anything you would ever get from watching the mainstream news.
Before you visit any of these gore sites, a word of WARNING: The gruesome material found on these sites cannot be unseen. It may cause anxiety and/ or severe nightmares, so don’t say we didn’t warn you. We just wanted to make that crystal clear as we’re not about to fork out for your therapist bills. Still here? Okay, then… Lets get to it!
Most of you will probably have heard of LiveLeak as it’s the biggest mainstream source for uncensored gore content. While not as gory as some of the sites mentioned below, this site offers a huge selection of content and since they clearly warn you if a video contains mature content — it may be a good place start.
Best Gore is widely considered one of the best sources for gory content. This Canadian shock site provides a large selection of gore videos and image of things like be-headings and dismemberment, guaranteed to make your skin crawl. The owner of Best Gore was actually arrested for violating Canadian public morals laws. However, the gore site remains very active by contributors who are posting new content on the daily. At every photo/ video you click, there is usually a description on what happened, which is quite useful. Access to Best Gore is restricted to adults only. But if you are 18 years of age or over and wish to be reminded of real life, check them out.
On this site you can listen to the cockpit recording of pilots right before the moment they died in horrific plane crashes. Oh, and checking out this site right before your plane takes off is a bad idea in many, MANY ways! Curious? We double dare you to leave this link untouched.
If you’re looking for gore but are turned off by the amount of (bizarre) porn usually associated with these sort of sites, Documenting Reality is a great pick. It’s a clean site free of porn and features many sub-forums with plenty to read. While it is a clean site, this gore site is basically an orgy of the most horrific physical pain that you think could be exerted on someone. Basically it’s just totally awful and just insanely graphic.
theYNC.com Is arguably one of the best gore sites around. It features a ton of content ranging from real suicides, executions to horrific accidents. Besides gore, they also have plenty of unusual porn and humor images.
Here you will find plenty of, well, you guessed it — crazy shit. They have many sections ranging from bizarre sex stuff to gruesome war pictures and human disfigurement. We recommend not to visit this place if you just had lunch.
DeathDate uses an advanced calculator that determines expiry date based on the place where you life, height, weight and your life style choices. Just fill in some info about yourself and not only will it give you an exact date, it will also show you how much time you have left on this Earth. Obviously, it’s unlikely that the site will accurately calculate the exact date that you will leave this world, but the fact that it does give you a rough estimate, does make it deeply disturbing.
DeathTube is a one-stop shop for some of the most gruesome stuff you will find on the web. It offers some of the most graphic pictures and videos about gore, accidents, suicides and more. It is a little light on content, offering only a couple of pages. But what’s there will definitely keep you up at night.
Thank you reading this article. We are happy you didn’t slam that back button after seeing uncensored images of some of the terrible things that are happening in our world. If you feel that a gore site is missing, be sure to let us know by dropping a comment below!
Imagine this : perhaps the most important street photographer of the twentieth century was a nanny who kept everything to herself. Nobody had ever seen her work and she was a complete unknown until the time of her death. For decades Vivian’s work hid in the shadows until decades later (in 2007), historical hobbyist John Maloof bought a box full of never developed negatives at a local auction for $380.
John began to develop the negatives and it didn’t take long before he realised that these were no ordinary street snapshots from the 50′s and 60′s — these pictures were a lot more then that.
Maier’s work is particularly evocative for those who grew up in the 50′s and 60′s because she seemed to stare deep into the soul of the time and preserve the everyday experience of the people. She ventured outside the comfortable homes and picturesque residential neighborhoods of her employers to document all segments of life in and around the big city. Below we’ve rounded up some of our favorites.
Vivian Maier Street Photography
He embarked on a journey to find the legend who took these beautiful pictures and he quickly discovered her name: Vivian Maier.
Here is a self-portrait of Vivian Maier
Before he could find her, John discovered her obituary in the newspaper of 2009 . She slipped on ice, suffered a head injury and never fully recovered. She was 83 years old when she passed away.
Since then, the work of this mysterious and incredibly talented woman has turned the art world upside down. The pictures gained international media attention with exhibitions in London, New York , Los Angeles , Oslo and Hamburg.
John has also made a documentary about Vivian and her work – you can check out the trailer below.
WOW, what an incredible story and what an inspiration!
If you’d like to see even more of this amazing photographer then be sure to check out her official site, where you can also found some of her color work.
Puppies, kittens, infants: All adorable. And do you know why? Because they’re tiny. If you start to magnify these things, then you wind up with the substantially less cute wolves, jaguars and teenagers.
Yes, if there’s one thing nature teaches us, it’s that what may start out as an adorable little animal friend can quickly turn into horror when its itty-bitty mouth gets big enough to start eating your face. And when the little versions are already creepy, the big versions are the stuff nightmares are made of. Case in point: this ridiculously huge bug that was recently discovered.
You’re going to need a pretty big shoe if this monster comes flapping around your porch light
Armed with huge, nightmarish pincers, this is officialy the world’s largest insect. It was recently discovered in China’s Sichuan province by local villagers who handed them over to Insect Museum of West China. Several of these odd critters were examined by the museum and found to be unusually large specimens of the giant dobsonfly, which is native to China and Vietnam.
The giant dobsonfly makes its home in bodies of clean water and is highly sensitive to any changes in the water’s pH as well as the presence of trace elements of pollutants. If the water is slightly contaminated, the giant dobsonfly will move on to seek cleaner waters.
The insect can be found in other provinces in China, India’s Assam state, and in northern Vietnam. This is the first time it has appeared in Sichuan province.
Holy Shit! Is it Dangerous?
Even though it looks like it could make the heads of 20 elephants explode with a single bite, they are in fact quite harmless. The female, whose mandibles are more functional, might nip if provoked, but she too is harmless.
Amoo Hadji is allegedly 80 years old and lives in the village of Dezhgah (city of Farashband in Fars province of Iran). At first glance, Amoo Hadji barely looks human, but more like a creature from the Lord of the Rings. His skin is scaly, you can barely see his eyes anymore and I’m betting he doesn’t smell like roses. The reason for this is bizarre but actually quite simple, he doesn’t have a skin disease or terrible condition: he just hasn’t washed himself in over sixty years!
Nobody quite knows why Amoo Hadji decided to give up on personal hygiene. Of course everyone is different, but it’s still extremely difficult to understand why Amoo lives the life he does. What we do know is that he lives a simple life, with his most prized possession being a steel pipe… that he smokes animal dung with.
Pictures of Amoo Hadji’s lifestyle began to circulate after these pictures were posted on Reddit.[show_more more=”READ MORE” less=”READ LESS…” color=”#4db2ec” list=”»”]
This Iranian man, Amoo Hadji, hasn’t bathed in over 60 years.
The (allegedly) 80 year-old leads a fairly primitive life, with his most prized possession being a steel pipe… that he smokes animal dung with.
He seems to blend in with his surroundings.
He lives in the village of Dezhgah (city of Farashband in Fars province of Iran).
He enjoys smoking 5 cigarettes at once…
And, surprisingly, he does in fact own a mirror…
It’s unknown why he hasn’t washed himself in decades.
I know what your thinking… Photoshop, right? But no this is actually a real photo of a Leopon, a hybrid resulting from the crossing of a male leopard with a lioness. The head of the animal is similar to that of a lion while the rest of the body carries similarities to leopards. These hybrids are produced in captivity and are unlikely to occur in the wild.
The first documented leopon was bred at Kolhapur, India in 1910. Its skin was sent to Reginald Innes Pocock by Walter Samuel Millard, the Secretary of the Bombay Natural History Society. It was a cross between a large leopard and a lioness. Two cubs were born, one of which died aged 2.5 months and the other was still living when Pocock described it in 1912. Pocock wrote that it was spotted like a leopard, but that the spots on its sides were smaller and closer set than those of an Indian leopard and were brown and indistinct like the fading spots of a juvenile lion. The spots on the head, spine, belly and legs were black and distinct. The tail was spotted on the topside and striped underneath and had a blackish tip with longer hairs. The underside was dirty white, the ears were fawn and had a broad black bar but did not have the white spot found in leopards. Pocock wrote that the closest he had previously seen to this type of hybrid was the lijagulep (Congolese Spotted Lion) bred in Chicago.
They have been bred in zoos in Japan, Germany, and Italy. Karl Hagenbeck, who produced many different hybrids, recorded the birth of leopons at the Hamburg Tierpark in Germany, but none survived to maturity. A leopon skin and skull at the British Museum comes from the animal bred at Kolhapur Zoo in India and was donated by Lt. Col. F.W. Wodehouse of the Junior United Services sometime between 1920 and 1940.
The most successful leopon programme was at Koshien Hanshin Park in Nishinomiya City, Japan. A lioness called Sonoko was mated by a leopard called Kaneo. The lioness voluntarily assumed a position on her side to allow the much smaller leopard to mount her. A litter of 2 hybrids was born in 1959 and 3 more were born in 1962. In captivity, the normally solitary male leopard remained with the family (social behavior is sometimes seen in captive specimens of normally solitary big cats). The hybrids proved to be sterile and the last one died in 1985. However, later leopons have successfully fathered cubs with liguars, hybrids between a male lion and a female jaguar. The resulting animal is called a leoliguar. The programme of cross-breeding was popular with the public, but it was criticised in zoological and animal welfare circles.
