Watch What A Drop Of Viper Venom Does To Human Blood




EVER wonder what snake’s venom does to human blood?

It’s estimated that snakes bite around 5.5 million people every year, leading to 400,000 amputations, and up to 125,000 deaths.

India suffers more than any other nation. The country is home to the wold’s largest venemous snake, the terrifying King Cobra. Gowing up to 18-feet, this snake contsins enough venoms to kill 20 people. But it rarely does. It lives in dense jungle and forest, where people rarely visit.

More prolific are the Indian cobra  (Naja naja),  saw scaled viper (Echis carinatus) and common krait (Bungarus caeruleus) and Daboia russeliiviper (Russell’s Viper). They live around humans, eating the rats that feast on waste.

Most people are bitten when they step on a snake. Poor lighting and a lack of shoes make for a dangerous environment in snake territory.

So. Want to see what a drop of Russell’s Viper vemon does to human blood:

Joseph Riley of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, bites a snake’s tale after sucking snake blood during a jungle survival training at the 2009 Cobra Gold military exercise in Chonburi province, southeastern Thailand Saturday, Feb. 14, 2009. The two-week annual joint exercise involving nearly 12,000 soldiers from Thailand, the United States, Singapore, Japan, and Indonesia, taking part in land, sea and air drill, is considered the largest military operations in the Southeast Asia region.

Other Parents: Dad Left 11-year-old Daughter Home Alone With Loaded Gun While He Got Head Tattoo

dad tattoo head


OTHER Parents presents John Ruiz, 41, who left his 11-year-old daughter home alone with a loaded weapon while he nipped out to get a head tattoo.

Some one spotted the child with the pistol as she leaned out of a window at the family’s home in northeast Albuquerque. They called the police, who arrested dad.

Ruiz said he leaves the loaded pistol with th echild in case anyone breaks in while he’s out. It’s a foolproof plan. But in case she thinks about walking about outside with the loaded gun, he issues her with strict instructions not to. But she has disobeyed him in the past. Kids, eh. What can you do?

Police duly charge Ruiz with endangering a child’s life or health. The girl is still in his custody and the Children, Youth and Families Department is investigating the case.

As for the ink, we can’t read the tattoo on his head, but it’s most likely a reference to his nickname: DICK.

Hessy Taft: The Perfect Nazi Baby Was Actually A Jew

Hessy Taft


THIS is the most lovely story about a prank that was played upon the Nazis back in the 1930s. They had a countrywide competition to find which baby was the most perfect example of the Aryan race, you know, those with the right blood that were going to inherit the continent. All a bit creepy of course but then that’s the sort of thing that they used to do.

So, they have this competition and Goebbels himself picked out the final winner. Who was, in fact, a Jew, although no one told anyone that at the time. Fortunately she survived the war and the Holocaust and has now been able to reveal all to the world:

When Hessy Taft was six months old, she was a poster child for the Nazis. Her photograph was chosen as the image of the ideal Aryan baby, and distributed in party propaganda. But what the Nazis didn’t know was that their perfect baby was really Jewish.

“I can laugh about it now,” the 80-year-old Professor Taft told Germany’s Bild newspaper in an interview. “But if the Nazis had known who I really was, I wouldn’t be alive.”

Prof Taft recently presented the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial in Israel with a Nazi magazine featuring her baby photograph on the front cover, and told the story of how she became an unlikely poster child for the Third Reich.

Terrifying Quiz From 1987 Evangelical Book ‘How to Raise ‘Purfect’ Kids’

IN 1987, John Ray Bohlen taught parents how to raise children in his guide How to Raise ‘Purfect’ Kids. You can read more of his wisdom on the Great Commission Ministries Website.

He writes:

In this day when juvenile delinquency is rampant and broken homes are rife, here is a safe, sure, and sane —– guaruntee from God!!! Here are practical Kingdom principles on how to raise perfect children written by a couple who did!!!

In these pages, meet Joey, Kari, Dawn Joy, and Josh. They are fun loving, people loving and God loving! They are obediant, but creative; righteous but not religious; rrespectful, but not restrained.

John has yet to write a book on spelling, but he is massively popular (it says here):

John Bohlen is a person of unquestioned integrity who has dedicated his life to the fulfillment of the Great Commission. John’s message about “The King’s Greatest Secret” has blessed many throughout the United States, and his books are in great demand in Africa as well as in the United States.


Does it work? Well, look at his kids:

Man Used Skinned Beheaded Dog Dressed In His Clothes To Fake His Own Death

li body
WE have no picture of the man known only as Li, who was involved in this scam, but let us just imagine that he is not all that pretty. As he tells police in China:
“I bought a dead dog, skinned it and cut off its head. I wrapped it in my clothes. I just wanted my [family members] to think I was dead.”
But that wasn’t Li with the four legs, tail stump and paws lying in road near Zhaoxian. It was his sedan on a roadside. But the trail of blood and clothes over the road were part of an attempt to pretend he was dead, the victim of a hit and run. Li hoped his family would think him dead, thus enabling him to start a life with his new lover, most likely a pert Bichon Frisé.
But those wily police DNA tested the creature in the corduroys and sports jacket and discovered that the remains were in fact those of a dog.
