Burglar Falls Asleep During Heist

TIMOTHY-BONTRAGERI guess sometimes you just get sleepy while on the job right?? Well that may be the case for this sticky fingered bandit.

Police in Sarasota, Florida, arrested Timothy Bontrager, 29, Saturday morning after a homeowner woke up to find him sleeping on her couch, WTSP.com reports.

Bontrager allegedly entered the home overnight through an unlocked sliding glass door in the rear of the house.

When the homeowner woke up at about 7:20 a.m. and saw the suspect,she roused him from his sleep and asked why he was there. The suspect apologized and started pacing around the home, only to leave when the victim said she was calling the police, according to NBC-2.com.

Officers arrived at the home at 8 a.m., at which point the victim discovered that her wallet, license, credit cards, cash and personal checks were missing, according to Bradenton.com.

Police took Bontrager into custody a short time later, but he was in shorts, not the pants described by the victim. He was arrested after the victim positively identified him, Sarasota Patch reports.

The pants were found a few hours later in a wooden area, along with the victim’s wallet.

Bontrager has been charged with a burglary of an occupied dwelling and taken to the Sarasota County Jail. He remains in custody on $25,000 bond.

15 Pounds of Cocaine Washes Up On Texas Beach

GALVESTON-BEACH-COCAINE-2-570Well Texas is just all over the news for a variety of reasons now isnt it.

A man in Galveston, Texas, got a big shock Sunday morning while walking along the beach.

The unidentified man found 15 pounds of cocaine with an estimated street value of $175,000, MyFoxHouston.com reports.

He called Galveston Police who gathered up the bags — 30 in all — and took them to the station. After the bags dried out, the powder in them tested positive for cocaine,according to Click2Houston.com.

Galveston Police are still trying to sniff up any suspects, This cocaine discovery, massive as it was, pales in comparison to other finds on Galveston beaches, according to the Houston Chronicle.

In May, 2010, a woman found 16 bricks of cocaine with an estimated worth of $2.1 million. In 2011, a jogger found 25 bricks of coke worth around $675,000.

Is it safe to say that the drug trade is big in Texas as well.

Art Student Has To Perform Naked To Pass Class

UCSDI think that the first question that has to be asked is “Was this mentioned in the syllabus prior to the course?” because if so, WOW you got away with it and if not WOW HOW DO YOU THINK YOU’RE GOING TO GET AWAY WITH IT.

Visual arts students at the University of California, San Diego, must exhibit themselves in the buff before a naked class of 20 and a nude professor or fail an upper-level course, a disgusted mom told KGTV-TV.

But faculty members and former students defend the elective course and maintain that “performing the self” class participants may also employ figurative nudity to pass the final.

The issue is over a syllabus entry that refers to an “erotic self” assignment, requiring students to “create a gesture that traces the outlines or speaks about your ‘erotic self(s).’”

The class description on the Department of Visual Arts website says:  “Using autobiography, dream, confession, fantasy or other means to invent one’s self in a new way, or to evoke the variety of selves in our imagination, the course experiments with and explores the rich possibilities available to the contemporary artist in his or her own persona.”

University of California, San Diego, art professor Ricardo Dominguez, pictured in 2008, said he hadn’t received any complaints about the course in 11 years of teaching it.

UCSD professor Ricardo Dominguez has been lighting his classroom by candlelight and baring it all alongside his students as part of the assignment for 11 years and never received any complaints, he told the TV station.

“It’s a standard canvas for performance art and body art,” Dominguez said. “If they are uncomfortable with this gesture, they should not take the course.”

But the student’s mother, who is not identified, accused the professor of “perversity” and said the final test was “just wrong.”

Visual arts students (not these) at the University of California, San Diego, must pose naked for an assignment on the ‘erotic self.’

“To blanketly say, ‘You must be naked in order to pass my class’ — it makes me sick to my stomach,” she said.

Facebook users peppered the local TV channel’s Facebook page with responses to the story, with several people expressing amazement and outrage about the course.

“As a teacher, I’m appalled that this professor is doing this in the name of teaching art,” one user wrote. “There are many other ways to get students to dig deeper into themselves to learn, grow and experience.”

The Geisel Library at University of California, San Diego, is where an angry mom says her daughter must show off her naked body to pass a visual art course.

“That ‘Professor’ sounds like an undercover chester the molester … using his profession to fulfill his pervert needs,” another commenter agreed.

But thsoe who said they took the course endorsed the naked day.

“We had a choice between being nude or doing something emotionally ‘naked’ and every student but one chose to do the nude performance,” one commenter said. “It was uncomfortable for some of us but we were adults and knew what we were getting ourselves into from day one of the class.”

The nudity is not compulsory, UCSD faculty and former students said.

No stranger to controversy, Dominguez once faced a congressional investigation and endured reports by then-Fox News talk show host Glenn Beck for developing a cellphone GPS that helps people cross the U.S.-Mexico border safely, his faculty profile page says.

Dominguez and visual arts division chairman Jordan Crandall didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Sunday night.

Pro-Marijuana Activist Lights Up A Joint During Live Broadcast

LightupliveNow this is how you stick up for what you believe in and basically KEEP IT 100 ! !

In JOHANNESBURG, South Africa,  A South African marijuana legalization activist became fed up with a debate he was having on broadcaster SABC so he dd what only seemed to fit in the discussion and sparked a joint on live TV.

Andre du Plessis, a vocal proponent of marijuana legalization in South Africa, was participating in a live debate with David Bayever, deputy chair of the Central Drug Authority, when he became noticeably annoyed by Bayever’s statement that “xenophobia” was delaying the agency’s position paper on legalizing recreational use of cannabis.

Du Plessis, who was being filmed in a separate location from Bayever and the SABC anchor, then lit a marijuana cigarette and started smoking.

When prompted for closing comments, du Pessis blew a plume of smoke at the camera.
“I think that’s all I’ve got to say,” he said.

The campaigner, who is head of the Cannabis Working Group, later confirmed he was smoking cannabis, or “dagga,” as it is sometimes called in South Africa.

“The reality is that people smoke it, and I did,” he told eNCA. “This is the reality of cannabis while this man continues to blah blah blah.”

SABC, which posted video of the incident to YouTube, said it does not support du Plessis’ actions.

“The SABC Broadcaster and the SABC Newsroom does not condone the actions of our guest Andre Du Plessis,” the company said in the video’s YouTube description.

Now thats how you stay true to your beliefs But it truly does warrant becoming one of the “Thug Life” videos.

Congressman Tries To Link Baltimore Riots to Gay Marriage

BillFloresI mean sometimes you have an IGNORANT NEWS story and others you have a “DUMBASS OF THE DAY” but this is one of those GLORIOUS TIMES where the two meet.

Meet Texas Senator Bill Flores, Rep. Bill Flores made a bizarre link between same-sex marriage rights and the current turmoil in Baltimore, Maryland, arguing that “breakdown of the family” has contributed to income disparity across the country.

The Republican congressman made the controversial claim in an April 28 “Washington Watch” interview with Family Research Council President Tony Perkins, noting, “The single best indicator of whether or not a child is going to be in poverty or not is whether or not they were raised by a two-parent household or a single parent household,” Politico first reported.

Protests in reaction to the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died in Baltimore police custody, have highlighted the systemic racial inequality in the city contributes to income equality, disproportionate arrests of African-Americans and distrust between residents and the police.

According to Flores, same-sex marriage is partly responsible for this imbalance.

“Look at what is going on in Baltimore today,” he said. “You see the issues that are raised there. Healthy marriages are the ones between a man and a woman because they can have a healthy family and they can raise children in a way that’s best for their future, not only socially but psychologically, economically, from a health perspective.”

Flores then concluded, “There is nothing like traditional marriage that does that for a child.”

Led by Perkins, the Family Research Council is a conservative lobbying organization that has been labeled an anti-gay hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Flores is no stranger to controversy, having made headlines in 2013 after he likened immigration reform to “building a sandwich.

There truly are no words to express the level of IDIOT that this congressman is.

Sex Toy Allows You to Hold Dead Lover’s Ashes

cremateddildoWell this right here allows the loving to go a little past “til death do us part” and in some cases you dont even have to be married.

Sex toy technology is getting pretty advanced, but even the most sophisticated teledildonics has not solved the problem of how to properly memorialize one’s deceased sex partner while masturbating. That’s where artist Mark Sturkenboom comes in: He’s created a blown-glass dildo that doubles as an urn.

The dildo is part of an art piece called “21 Grams” shown at Milan Design Week this month, and it can hold up to 21 grams of ashes. There’s a gold urn within the translucent shaft, so the ashes won’t slosh around. It’s actually quite classy looking.

Discredited pseudoscience and Alejandro González Iñárritu suggest that 21 grams is the weight of a human soul, so the sex toy effectively gives people a way to simulate a Ghost pottery scene situation, except Whoopi Goldberg is a dildo.

The idea of bonking oneself with a container that holds the remains of one who once bonked you is definitely a little outré, but the artist’s rationale is sweet. Talking to Dezeen, Sturkenboom described how he wanted to point out taboos around grieving and sexuality.

The idea for 21 Grams, which is handmade to order and can be personalised to the requirements of the customer, grew from his relationship with an elderly widow.

He just wants grieving widows to be happy! By achieving greater Onanistic pleasure with the knowledge that the now-non-sentient organic remnants of their loved ones are technically inside of them! As far as art pieces that incorporate sex toys into an exploration of mortality go, this one’s on the heart-warming side.

Sturkenboom first came up with the project idea back in 2012, and he hand-makes and customizes the classy sadness dildos. He’s only sold one so far but says that there’s renewed interest after showing it off this week.

No word yet on whether there’s a Grief Fleshlight in the works.
