I’m 10 minutes late EST. It’s still Wednesday in California.
Back before I went into the 6-month blog void of personal fucked-upness, I used to do a Weird News Wednesday just to give my blog some sort of structure. I’ve decided to bring it back but with super lax rules. Every Wednesday I will post weird news, a webcomic, a weird wikipedia article, or, if I get really lazy, simply a picture that elicits “What the fuck?”
I have a trifecta of weird news articles today.
Miami face-eater is identified; cause of attack is a mystery
Witnesses and police have said Eugene was naked Saturday when he attacked another naked man on the MacArthur Causeway next to the Miami Herald building, chewing up to 80% of the victim’s face off. A police officer commanded him to stop, and when Eugene didn’t, the officer shot him as many as six times.
Police: Hackensack man stabbed himself and threw intestines at officers
Carter was in the corner of the room with a knife in his hand, and he stood up, he yelled at police while stabbing himself all over his body. Officers noticed that his intestines were protruding from a wound in his abdomen, Heinemann said. Carter allegedly threw some of his skin and intestines at officers as they tried to enter the room, Heinemann said.
Man hits car driven by nun, has iPhone stolen
Police said the nun was taken to hospital as a precaution and suffered minor injuries. After the collision, the male driver attempted to call 911 on his iPhone.
However, the male driver was shaken up after the crash and had trouble operating the phone. A passerby offered to help him with the phone, but then ran off with the device when the driver handed it to him.
The news is all about mentally ill people and assholes these days.
