While police missed an opportunity to use the world’s cutest handcuffs, the jail bird who warned his drug-dealing owners to run is still plenty cute on his own.
Oregon has outlawed the act of propelling “a dangerous substance at another person” -particularly, a substance that is “organic” in nature. The law was enacted after someone threw semen at a women at a Target store. While this is completely wrong and it is a sexual violation, the law doesn’t distinguish between consensual acts and non-consensual. Does our nation really need to have more laws restricting the behavior of consenting adults -even if those acts are gross?
Thanks for the image I’m $partacus.

Researchers have discovered that people who “shroom” can have an increased level of happiness as much as 14 months later, more on the study. For chronically depressed people (read:me), this could be a life saver…literally. I have in fact taken them when they were legal in Amsterdam and I have to say, I do think it really helped my mood for a long while afterwards.
Pot and prozac do not do this. Nothing legal in the US does this.
Personally, I think more “drugs” should be legal, as a person should be able to do whatever they want to their body. But when it comes to something like this, where it can have major benefits for the person taking it and they don’t hurt anyone by taking it, why the hell isn’t it legal?

All these news stories lately are making me a sucker for bear stories. First the bear and kitty friends, now this. Ram Singh Munda, a resident of India, saved this little bear when it was abandoned in the forest. The bear, named Rani or “queen,” became friends with his daughter who was recovering from the death of her mother and is now like a member of the family.
Unfortunately, rather than trying to do what’s best for all involved, the Indian government just arrested Munda, sent the bear to the zoo and his daughter to boarding school. Now the little bear isn’t eating. The whole thing just isn’t right. I do agree that he shouldn’t be raising a bear at his house, but he shouldn’t go to jail and the bear’s hunger strike is dangerous. Booo Indian government! Booo!
Seriously, how cute is that little bear on the bike? He looks like he’s smiling.
