News Story To Laugh At…

“CAMBRIDGE, England – A visitor to a British museum tripped on his shoelace, stumbled down a stairway and fell into a display of centuries-old Chinese vases, shattering them into "very small pieces," officials said Monday

Trav’s Editorial- Dumbass… Probably one of those guys that says the word Vase wrong, either that or Helga was there and he actually tripped after seeing her hooties.

The three Qing dynasty vases, dating from the late 17th or early 18th century, had been donated to the Fitzwilliam Museum in the university city of Cambridge in 1948 and were among its best-known artifacts. They sat on the window sill beside the staircase for 40 years.

Trav’s Editorial- Have you ever seen those things? I mean, well…. Ummm… They sat on a window sill for 40 years for crying out loud. Ya know what folks? In America, someone would be suing the shoelace manufacturers.

"It was a most unfortunate and regrettable accident, but we are glad that the visitor involved was able to leave the museum unharmed," museum director Duncan Robinson said.”

Trav’s Editorial- BULLSHIT! That is like saying, “Well, I was just honored to be nominated for an Oscar. It was never about winning!” *Trav Fakes a Sneeze* BULLSHIT! Just say what you are really thinking there Mr. Robinson. “Well this dumbass without the sense to tie his own shoes, fell down and busted something much more valuable than his own stupid ass. I truly wish he would have been cut by a million shattered fragments of Qing Dynasty Vase! I would kill that cocksucker if I could get my hands on him…”

World News That Makes Me Want To Light Someone On Fire:

Amateur footage captured the moment when the bag was fished out and opened by a park worker in Belo Horizonte. (See Picture on left)

Jose da Cruz, who was filmed performing the rescue, said he was first alerted to the bag by sounds of a "cat crying". The baby, thought to be two months old, is said to be healthy, and is being kept in hospital while authorities search for relatives.

"I heard a sound of a cat," Mr da Cruz told television channel TV Globo. "But, between a child and a cat, the noise is the same.
"Then, the noise was increasing and it caught my attention."

Mr da Cruz said he then called security and a local cameraman, who happened to be filming in the area, filmed the baby being pulled out. Eyewitnesses said that the plastic bag was floating attached to a piece of wood in the Pampulha Lagoon, one of the city's main parks.

Trav’s Editorial- OK Folks, let me summarize. Some lower than life creature not worth sharing the air I breathe at this very moment, tossed a 2 month old baby girl in a trash bag and then tossed her in a lake. Now seriously… why should we waste time on this kind of person? How far out do we carry this live and let live bullshit? How long, as a “compassionate” society, do we allow ourselves to say “oh, they can be rehabilitated!” Pfffft… Smoking crack… String em up, light em on fire and watch them dance to the song “She Bangs” or something.

Wait… wait…wait… I say throw them in a bag, duct tape the sucker shut and toss em in the lake.

Hmm, interesting um, editorials. Here's my bent...

Accidents do happen, and there's no reason to crucify the guy for it.

Infanticide has been practiced since humans first walked. For cultural and for economic reasons. Is it deplorable? Perhaps. I only saw one side of what is undoubtedly a complex situation printed above.

Ducking for cover...

Saw that piece about the baby on the news here......trav, you said exactly what I said to my mum....for once she didn't say Lins!!!!!

Seriously, I have to wonder what goes on in some peoples minds, (and I am a psych nurse!) What makes me really mad is that I have some dear friends who would do anything to be able to have a baby, then you see some fuckwit who can probably shell them like peas go and pull stunts like this. And you just know that there is going to be some bleeding heart who says the mother is misunderstood. It just staggers me the cruelty people can show to another human particular the innocents that are our children. other thing, what is the wrong way of pronouncing vase????

I saw the story about the baby floating in the bag. I swear some people just ought not be allowed to breathe...or breed. I agree 100% on that one.
Now this one with the centuries-old Chinese vases....Man. I'd hate to have been with that guy that tripped. Can you imagine the looks he must've gotten. What do you suppose they do about stuff like that when an accident happens to these rare old treasures?

~~~ Just me, poppin to say HI! ~~

Most of the time you can read the newspaper and change just about any name listed to 'asshole', 'cunt', 'dickhead', or 'dumbass'. This makes most of the stories more plausible.

i have a better idea for the person who put that child in the lake... in ancient rome, and i forgot what offence this was used for... perhaps treason... they sewed the criminal into a sack with a dog, a monkey and a snake... then tossed them into the Tiber River... now, what do you suppose happened to that person as the bag filled with water?

...That which does not kill me merely pisses me off!...

The first story is a perfect example of why I'm no longer allowed at the Smithsonian.

I saw the second story on the news last night...I vote for lighting them on fire and watching them dance to "She Bangs." Mine as well be entertained when possible.

I read about the baby on net news first thought (and my last thought) was about the baby Moses set out in a basket and found flosting in the bullrushes (was that the KJV word?)...and found by the Queen of it was more the miraculousness of it all that struck me...the outcome was good...the Lord works in mysterious me nuts if you want, that's ok...

Detective: Dominatrix not initially a suspect in disappearance

(Dedham, MASS - AP) – A detective testifies that a Quincy dominatrix was not immediately a suspect in the disappearance of a man who allegedly died of a heart attack during a visit to the woman's makeshift "dungeon."

Salem, New Hampshire Police Detective Mark Sambataro took the stand today in Barbara Asher's manslaughter trial, saying he initially had "no theory" about what happened to Michael Lord.

That contradicts claims made by Asher's lawyer, who said detectives focused on the dominatrix early in the investigation and failed to look for other explanations for the New Hampshire man's disappearance.

Although his body was never found, investigators believe Lord visited Asher in July, 2000 and died from a heart attack during a bondage session.

Asher is accused of failing to call paramedics and dismembering his body and disposing of it behind a restaurant in Maine with the help of her boyfriend.

I think what Trav was trying to say is that VASE should rhyme with FACE,
not sound like VAHHHHSE.

Ok...a museum with priceless vases and they keep them in a windowsill?

As far as the person that did that to the baby? I agree with DT, but as an added bonus, the observers should get to shoot bottle-rockets at her as she does the fire dance.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

I want to know something: how fucked up can you be to give your baby to homeless people if you can't afford to keep it? Last time I checked, a lot of hospitals are "anonymous safe drops" for unwanted babies. But again, why give the baby to homeless people if you can't afford it?

It is my understanding if the vase if worth less than 50.00 then it's pronounced vase with a long a. If it is worth 51.00 or more then it's vase with the ahhhh sound. It's a matter of monetary standing.

PENIS CHARMING....where are you?

I agree with the last comment ... drag the bastard (or bitch ... could be either one) out to the tallest tree, string them up from a noose .. and drop the dumb shit!! (Just to make it really worth the while, have the rope break just as they hit the end of it, so that they crash to the ground and shatter both their legs, then drag them behind your 1936 John Deere tractor for about 4 hours before hanging them again with a good rope!!)

Trav - I love this post on so many levels, especially the way you provided the news and then your own commentary. I'm a former journalist and an unabashed news hound! I think Google is the best invention since sliced bread, to coin a phrase.

I read the article about the Brit tripping over his shoelaces and breaking all those vases (vaaahh-sez). I almost fell off my chair laughing!

As far as the baby...there are no words.

Trav- As I work at a Museum on the Vases- my 2 cents- If They were THAT valuable they should have been in a display case with unbreakable glass.As for the man tripping over his shoe lace- that is forgivable - What I can't stand is when there is a sign that says KEEP
OFF & The PARENTS are standing in front of the sign while the Kids are climbing all over what they are not supposed to.
As for the baby in a bag-There is NO excuse for that one-May the person that did that Be put in a bag themself & cast into the lake preferably filled with crocodiles.

I say, fire the idiot who left the vases on the window sill where they could get knocked over.................... And put the Demented lowlife scumsucker in a uniform and send em off to Afganistan or Iraq where they can learn the value of life for themselves.....maybe after getting shot at a few times, or maybe getting wounded they will have a better idea what a prescious thing life is. If they get killed, it will save us a lot of money by not having to keep em in jail or pay for their lawyers and courts..................

As for the man....if he worked with me, I would never let him live it down. I would put up signs asking him if he needed shoe tying lessons, one that would say, take the elevator..we don't want anything broken today...., and lastly, I would ask how it feels to destroy something that is worth more than his ass...because I'm sure that you'd want me to just for you.

I'd kick the mom in her ass....quite a few times... Then, I would ask a friend of mine who is in the military to drown her and bring her back to life so she can see what it feels like. This way, it gives her an idea of what her baby ALMOST went through....

I'm very harsh...but that's because I believe that idiots need to be taught...and who else to do it than me...since I don't have much of a concious...
