    Woman wanted her ex-hubby chopped up with a chainsaW Dropping a dime on your wife to the feds is cold hearted, so Fred Coral had to know that retribution was coming. He probably didn't know he would be financing it. The FBI claims his former wife, Mercedes Morales, paid a hitman with a $5,000 diamond ring to kill Coral for turning her into police in 2003 for money laundering, according to the Miami Herald. Agents arrested 57-year-old Morales on Monday in Miramar and she is charged with plotting to murder her ex. The ring was likely the wedding ring Coral...

His mother says she can't bear to tell him the truth. The little boy has a backyard full of things that are fun, but one thing is missing: his dog named Buddy.

  • The ultimate in zombie defense: the AR-15 semi-automatic with chainsaw bayonet

    December 5, 2008 The bayonet is largely a weapon of last resort - when the rifle jams, the ammunition runs out or the fighting gets to close quarters, you've still got something sharp and pointy to get the job done old-school. They've pretty much disappeared from today's more high-tech battlefields, but that doesn't mean there aren't mavericks out there still pushing the envelope - and we can't think of many inventions we've seen lately that would be more exciting to a 10-year-old schoolboy than this: the chainsaw bayonet. Whether you view this as blatant redneck idiocy or the coolest...

    UC Berkeley police tried to remove a man living in an oak tree near the main entrance to campus on Monday, but they came away empty-handed. The man, who goes by the name Fresh, is living in the tree to protest various school policies. Police brought out two ladders and a cherry picker to try to convince him to come out, but he evaded them by climbing higher, according to police and the man's supporters on the ground. Fresh has been living in the tree just north of Sather Gate with a hammock, water jugs and a bucket for human...

    It’s cool to be “Green” right now. NBC devoted a week of programming gimmicks to being “Green,” with recycling and environmental efforts taking over some part of all of their hit shows. Meanwhile, Al Gore won a Nobel Peace Prize and Overture studios shipped out sapling trees with their fall preview kits. Just two signs we’ve seen in the last few weeks that being environmentally conscious is suddenly the right place to be. New York City is following in the trend this year with their oversized Christmas tree. The Rockefeller Center perennial will use LED lighting (light emitting diodes) to...

    To Deputy Sheriff Michael Knights, the dispatcher’s call sounded like something out of a slasher movie: a report of a man standing on a street corner threatening passing motorists with a chain saw. "You know how in the ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ the guy raised his chain saw up and revved it? That’s what he was doing," Knights said Wednesday. "Alcohol was involved." Maine State Police Trooper Thomas Fiske said they took the chain saw away from Dube at gunpoint. Knights confiscated it after seeing that Dube was threatening motorists ... Fiske said he was mystified as to why Dube was...

    A hapless US Air Force pilot had to be physically cut free from the cockpit of his F-22A Raptor when the canopy resolutely refused to open, Flight International reports. The mini-drama unfolded on 10 April at the 27th Fighter Squadron's base at Langley AFB, Virginia, when the canopy "became stuck in the down and locked position and could not be opened manually after the pilot cycled the mechanism several times, following a pre-flight warning that the canopy was unlocked". Accordingly, an emergency team of ground operatives moved in after five hours and attacked the $134m Raptor with a decidedly unstealthy...

Brutus chewed on the chainsaw for 90 minutes, reducing it to pieces. Neither man nor beast was injured. Northern Australia has an...

    I used to think that any fool would know the difference between an FBI investigation and a real U.S. military action, but that's before the Clinton administration. Eight years of Bill and Hillary Clinton forever changed my views about the political world. I used to think liberals were interesting, and in a way entertaining. Today I have concluded that if they're in power, they're dangerous to the national security. But even more dangerous are the ignorant citizens who vote for liberal policies. Why? Because they are "used" by dishonest politicians seeking to move a flawed and failed agenda forward. ...
