Laura Lush of Get Shot! bares all.

A California punk band named "Get Shot!" recently filmed a video of their bass playerpleasuring herself on the Westboro Baptist Church's lawn.
As self proclaimed purveyors of 'Ridiculously sleazy Rock N Roll' Get Shot! raised the stakes in the now unspoken national game among Westboro haters of who can best defile the church and its members.

ANOTHER PLANE CRASH AVERTED IN SOKOTO

Another plane crash disaster was averted this morning in Sokoko northern part of Nigeria, when a Saudi bound Kabo Air plane carrying 400 passengers from Kano made an emergency landing at the Sir Abubakar III international Airport when its tyres exploded immediately after take off.
The Boeing 747 jumbo jet, left Kano on Friday en- route Saudi Arabia but had to divert to Sokoto when the incident happened. 

Sources indicate that all the passengers aboard the airline had been successfully evacuated from the plane and lodged in a hotel in the state. This is coming barely 72 hours after an Embraer aircraft belonging to Associated Airlines with registration number, 5N-BIT crashed in Lagos shortly after take-off from the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos. 

The 30-seater aircraft had 20 passengers on board including seven crew members on board and the remains of former Ondo State governor, Olusegun Agagu crashed about 9:30am, killing 13. 

How Plane Went Down –Traffic Controller




The airworthiness of the Associsted Airlines plane that crashed in Lagos on Thursday has come under close security folowing disclosures that it last operated flights in August this year.
The relevant agencies, it was gathered on Friday, have started asking questions on who certified the plane to fly the day it crashed after it had remained on ground for about six weeks.
The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) at a press conference on Friday refused to speak on the status of the aircraft and its certification for the flight.
NCAA and the management of the airline at the  press conference gave conflicting reports on the records of the crashed plane.

New Political Thinking In South-West



THERE appears to be a new political thinking in the South-West. At least that was what the discerning mind observed at a tribute session for former Ondo State governor, Olusegun Agagu at the International Conference Centre, University of Ibadan, Oyo State and sponsored by the Ondo State government, on Monday.
Agagu was a one-time acting Head of the Department of Geology. So, the department, in conjunction with Nigerian Mining and Geosciences Society (NMGS), set aside a day to celebrate him.
Remarkably, however, while the event demonstrated the common universe of Yoruba humanity across political lines, it also provided an opportunity, however momentary, for political foes to celebrate one another, so that in death, Agagu may be said to have made a powerful statement on uniting the home front.

17YEARS AFTER NNAMDI AZIKIWE’S STATE BURIAL, UNDERTAKER, YET TO BE PAID...’ YES,THEY ARE STILL OWING ME MILLIONS’......EBONY CASKETS BOSS, DEHINDE HARRISON



Like American Scientist and philosopher, Benjamin Franklin rightly said, ’creditors have better memories, than debtors’. If half of what we are hearing is anything to go by, surprisingly,17years after the superlative state burial, given to Late Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe, the first Nigerian President, undertaker, Ebony Caskets, is still being owed several millions.
Reports indicates that the funeral held in November 1996, following nearly two weeks of National monumental ceremonies, managed by popular funeral director, Dehinde Harrison is yet to be completely paid for. If you recall the Great Zik of Africa, who was a politician, scholar, poet and journalist of note,died on May 13,1996 at age 91years
.He was buried in a stately manner in November of that year, after his body was taken on a ‘national tour’ to various cities including Lagos, Ibadan, his birthplace of Zungeru in the North, then to Abuja,and Enugu,in reminisce of his gallant efforts,to free Nigeria from the claws of colonialism.Amidst pomp,he was finally buried,inside his Onitsha home.

When sought the amiable undertaker,over the tale,’It’s true, they are still owing me several millions.I have pursued it for many years without result.I really don't want to talk about it, so people will not think, I’m denegrading the memory of Late Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe, who is one Africa's greatest leaders,that ever lived. You know General Sani Abacha,was the President,when Zik died and I was engaged for the job.The government, was still owing me several millions,after that burial.Unfortunately, General Abacha died,afterwards,and we couldn’t get the money back.I wrote to the Minister of Special Duties,on several occasions,but no to avail, I had to give up,but it was so painful’. he retorted. Azikiwe became Nigeria's first president in 1963 when it became a Republic after independence from Britain in 1960.He remained until the first coup d'etat in 1966, which led to civil war in June 1967 when Igbo’s seceded to set up, the State of Biafra,under then Colonel Emeka Ojukwu. During the civil war Azikiwe saw the hopelessness of the war, he hastened its end by returning to the Federal side.Until his death,he was a very respected Nigerian leader.

Dental hygienist who was shot dead after ramming her car into White House with her BABY in the back seat 'was suffering from post-natal depression'

Eye-witness Frank Schwing, who lives in DC, told reporters that when the vehicle approached the area of the Capitol building, several squad cars stopped it and officers 'came out with their guns drawn'.

The Connecticut woman who rammed a White House barrier with her young daughter in the car before being gunned down by police was suffering from postpartum depression after giving birth last year, her mother has revealed. 
The revelation by Miriam Carey's family is the first hint at what could have caused the dental hygienist to drive her Infiniti luxury sedan 270 miles from her home in suburban Stamford to Washington, DC - where her rampage put the nation's capital on lock-down Thursday. 
Carey's daughter Erica, who was in the back seat, was not injured, despite the Secret Service and U.S. Capitol police firing up to 15 shots into her car.
Little Erica was rescued from the bullet-riddled car after her mother was shot dead. She is currently in the custody of child services workers.

Former Porn Magazine Editor Now Warns Parents to Protect Children From It


A former editor of a “soft pornography” magazine now believes that porn has devastated a generation of teenagers and is urging parents to do as much as they can to shield their children from its effects.
Martin Daubney has said that conversations with 13, 14 and 15-year-olds about their pornography habits and a subsequent research study about its propensity to be addictive are leading him to speak out against it, according to The Daily Mail.
Daubney, who is a presenter in the upcoming documentary “Porn on the Brain,” explained his shock when the “well turned-out, polite, giggly and shy” students he interviewed had an “extensive knowledge of porn terms…that superseded that of every adult in the room” including a sex education consultant.

I Charm My Dad With Juju To Make Him Have Sex With Me Everyday – Girl confesses


RAPE

A girl in Ogoja (names withheld) on Thursday evening stunned worshippers in St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church in Igoli when she confessed how she mistakenly hypnotized her father with ‘juju’ and turned him to a $3x machine. According her confession, she met a man in Ogoja who she fell in love with “I wanted him to marry me but he was not looking my way, so I went to a juju man and got him to do something for me to hypnotize him to love me and have s*x with me frequently which he was reluctant to”.
The juju man prepared some “stuff and gave to me to add to his food, when I got home and prepared some good pounded yam and mixed the stuff in the soup and kept in the cooler for him”.
But as fate would have it, after she kept the food in the cooler and strolled off to Mission Road to get her lover to come and eat the delicious dish, his father who had gone to work returned home, got to the food first and when he opened the cooler and saw the good looking food, he ate up a large portion of it.

Vtex

No one likes warm beer, or having to wait around for it to be chilled.
But a new gadget now claims to be able to transform your warm drink into a refreshing beverage within seconds.
The Rapidcool device claims to cool drink cans and bottles from room temperature to 4°C in under 45 seconds.

The product, designed by London-based Enviro-Cool, has received £760,000  in European Union research funding.
