Doctors are supposed to be there to help their patients, but sometimes they have other things on their mind. These terrible doctors traumatized their patients with gross violations of the Hippocratic Oath.
The Pediatrician Who Molested and Raped His Young Patients
Every parent wants to make sure their child is happy, which is why a good pediatrician is so important. But just because someone has a license and a successful practice doesn’t mean they should be left around your kids.
Described my news outlets as “the worst pedophile in American history,” Earl Brian Bradley is every parent’s nightmare as he used his position as a pediatrician to molest and rape over 100 child patients -some as young as 3 months old.
From the outside, Bradley’s office looked like a great place to get your child comfortable around doctors, with carnival rides, a small theater showing Disney films and all kinds of kid-friendly decorations. For almost ten years Bradley worked in the town of Lewes, Deleware, but then Bradley’s own sister informed the state’s medical society of patient complaints about the doctor‘s inappropriate touching of their children. In 2009, Bradley was arrested and accused of nine counts of inappropriate touching including the fourth degree rape of a two-year-old patient. Then police found more than 13 hours of video footage from the doctor’s office showing even more rapes and molestations.
Eventually, Bradley was charged with 471 charges of molestation, rape and child-exploitation. He was convicted for every charge and sentenced to 14 consecutive life terms plus 165 years in prison without parole.
The Doctor Who Modified Patients’ Vaginas Without Consent
If women have been having sex and delivering babies since humanity began, their anatomy is probably just fine when it comes to those two things, but Dr. James C. Burt disagreed with nature, writing, ”women are structurally inadequate for intercourse. This is a pathological condition amenable to surgery.” The surgery in question was one he specially created that he believed would turn women into ”horny little mice” by increasing their sexual responsiveness. More specifically, he would remove the hood of the clitoris, reposition the vagina, move the urethra and alter the walls between the rectum and the vagina.
In fact, the surgery often left women with sexual dysfunctions, scarring, permanent physical damage and chronic infections of the kidney bladder and vagina, but that didn’t stop Dr. Burt from experimenting on hundreds of women without their permission over the course of 22 years -usually after a pregnancy. ”The patient,” he wrote, ”had not been informed that anything more had been done to her than delivery and episiotomy and repair, or ”Yes, you had stitches with your delivery.’ ” It’s worth noting that the doctor was never even certified by American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology nor was he a licensed surgeon.
When his crimes finally caught up with him, he claimed his accusers were ”dissatisfied women who may have had complications, who may be lying, who may have had positive feelings turn negative when forced to pay the bill and women who stand to make a lot of money from the lies.” Despite his claims of innocence, the doctor voluntarily surrendered his license in 1989 and later declared bankruptcy after multiple lawsuits left him owing $21 million. Amazingly, Burt never faced criminal charges for his acts and died in 2002 without ever once seeing the inside of a jail cell.
The Doctor Who Impregnated Patients With His Own Sperm
When a woman goes to a fertility doctor seeking artificial insemination, she’s not asking the doctor to donate his own sperm -but that’s just what Cecil Byran Jacobson did in anywhere between 15 and 75 cases. Despite having no specialist training in infertility medicine, Jacobson operated his own reproductive genetics center. During his time as a doctor there, he offered to help artificially inseminate patients with sperm from screened, anonymous donors -only the samples weren’t from anonymous men, they were from the doctor himself. As if that weren’t bad enough, in one case the doctor even switched his sperm out with the husband of a women undergoing the procedure. At least fifteen of Jacobson’s patients have discovered the doctor fathered their children and some estimate there are up to 75 kids in this world that were born thanks to the doctor’s unethical practices.
Jacobson maintains that he acted in the right and that he only supplied samples when donors failed to show up and a patient was about to complete her fertility window -and in the case where the woman’s husband was supposed to supply the sample, he claims it was a simple mix up in the laboratory. Despite his claims and appeals, the doctor was convicted of 52 counts of mail fraud, wire fraud and perjury. Surprisingly though, he was only sentenced to five years in prison and the loss of his medical license and has been out of prison since 1997.

If you’re about to get baked and want something just amazing to eat after you smoke, you might want to check out some of these amazing stonerific treats from Oddee -like the Spaghettios cupcakes with Velveeta frosting above.
Seriously, everyone needs to look sexy sometimes, even Chewie, Darth Vader and Boba Fett. Unfortunately, this isn’t the way to do it.
Seriously Flagstaff, what’s wrong with you and your residents?
Wanna stink on purpose? Then perhaps you should try one of these horrifically bizarre fragrances. Of course, just like one man’s trash is another’s treasure, while most of us would find these scents repulsive, there are those out there who find them scandalously alluring -so you never know who you’ll attract if you try one of these scents on for a try.
Sure, lobster is absolutely delicious, but there’s a reason that fish monger isn’t among the world’s most glamorous and sexy professions -it’s not something you should aspire to smell like. If you do think lobster is your ideal scent though, Demeter has you covered -they can also help you smell like fiery curry, bourbon, rye bread or sushi. So many terrible options, so little time.

Yes, this is actually a real product although technically, they claim this bottled vaginal scent not really a perfume. Instead, it’s something you’re supposed to put on the back of your hand and sniff so you can better imagine your sexual fantasy. Really though, using vagina-scented perfume to attract a man is a hell of a lot less creepy than its intended use though.
Wonder how an ancient oceanic god covered in tentacles would smell? Well, according to Black Pheonix Alchemy Lab, who sells a Cthulhu scent, the smell is “a creeping, wet, slithering scent, dripping with seaweed, oceanic plants and dark, unfathomable waters.” Yummy.

4. A Funeral Home
Can’t get enough of the smell of lilies, dust and formaldehyde? Then grab your own bottle of Funeral Home perfume courtesy of odd perfumery Demeter. Who knows, maybe this will attract some hot goths.

5. Bodily Secretions
Ever wanted to smell like the floor of a concert hall after Motorhead just played a show? Then grab your own bottle of Sécrétions Magnifiques, which was created to smell like blood, semen, sweat and saliva. According to this reviewer, it actually smells alright, even if it takes a ballsy person to pull it off.
6. A Bordello
Speaking of bodily secretions, if you’ve ever wanted a perfume that literally makes you smell like a whore, then thank Black Pheonix Alchemy Lab for creating their Bordello perfume oil, which they claim “evokes images of velvet-lined Old West cathouses, tightly laced corsets, rustling petticoats and coquettish snarls of pleasure.”

7. A Frisky Pirate
Pirates are known for being badasses, treasure hunters, rogues and scallywags, but not for smelling great. No matter how many harlequin romances tell you that pirates are romantic, the bottom line is that a bunch of men sailing on the sea for months, even years at a time, without a bath just aren’t going to smell good. Of course, that won’t stop Think Geek from selling you a “Frisky Pirate” perfume stick.
On the upside, the scent features “aquatic notes swirled with fresh water lotus, mint, Tahitian vanilla and ripples of sweet liquor, all wrapped in leather, smoke, and gunpowder,” so it probably won’t smell as bad as real pirates did.
Speaking of things that undoubtedly don’t smell great, Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs (yes, them again), also sells a Hoggle perfume -as in the adorably weird little gobblin from The Labyrinth. So what do they claim Hoggle smells like? “Fermented pumpkin, brown leather, dust, tobacco leaf, and dark woods.”
Personally, I never gave much thought as to how Hellboy smelled, but given that Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs claims their Hellboy cologne smells of “Aftershave, candy wrappers, brimstone, and cat,” I can definitively say I don’t want to smell like him.

Granted, stoners love the smell of weed and this scent will undoubtedly attract plenty of them, but there’s a reason they describe the smell of good herb as “skunky.” Pretty much everyone who doesn’t smoke pot is going to look at you and wonder if you were actually sprayed by a skunk if you walk around wearing this stuff.
Looking to walk around smelling like you just finished playing with a classroom of kids? Then grab a bottle of Demeter’s officially licensed Play-Doh cologne. Who knows, if you’re trying to get guys who are into MILFs, but you don’t actually have kids, maybe this is the secret.
12. Pizza Hut
If you want to smell like pizza, you could get a job as a pizza delivery driver or you could buy this Pizza Hut perfume. Of course, if you actually like real pizza, then Pizza Hut is probably the last pizza company you would want to be stuck smelling all day.
Stilton is an absolutely delicious cheese. Unfortunately, part of that great taste comes from its footy, earthy smell, which is precisely why the idea of Stilton perfume seems absolutely insane.
Is the winter weather putting you through barbecue withdrawls? Then maybe you could help satiate your cravings with Que, the barbecue-scented perfume.
Remember this classic Taco Bell commercial? Well, as it turns out, they weren’t the first ones to think that wearing the scent of bacon is a surefire way to attract a man. In fact, Fargginay’s bacon perfume dates all the way back to the 1920’s, which should give you a good idea of just how much men have always loved the salty, smoky smell of cured pork.
16. An RPG Character
Whether you prefer your role playing games to be virtual, like Skyrim, or old school, like D&D, one thing you probably never considered about your character was how he or she smelled. But good old Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs has. In fact, you can buy their class or alignment scents on ThinkGeek. If you want a race or adventuring gear scent though, you’ll have to head over to the BPAL website to buy them direct. Personally, I’d be pretty interested in checking out the Elf scent that features “Pale golden musk, honeycomb, amber, parma violet, hawthorne bark, aspen leaf, forest lily, life everlasting, white moss, and a hint of wild berry.”
Know of any other freakishly strange perfume or cologne scents out there? Tell everyone about them in the comments.
I only have one question: “why?”
You’ve no doubt seen videos or photos of students at UC Davis being peppersprayed by a douchebag cop (hell, there’s even a meme of it already), but you might not know that anonymous has decided to take action against him. Here’s a fraction of their message against him:
Citizens of the world, flood his home phone at 530-752-3989.
Flood his cell phone at 530-979-0184.
Flood his email at, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Flood his home with pizza deliveries and junk mail at 4005 Cowell Boulevard. Apartment #616. Davis, California 95618.
Flood his skype at japike3.
Flood his phones, email and mailbox to voice your anger.
Flood the campus of U.C. Davis.
Flood the streets of the world and stand up for your rights, and against injustice.
Whether or not you agree with Occupy, you should be able to agree that no one should be peppersprayed simply for peacefully protesting.
