    Stiff where? Still stiff here. Much like the relationship between Black women and our hair, the situation involving our good sis Tessica Brown (aka Gorilla Glue Girl, as she’s been unofficially dubbed on social media) and her horrendous hair catastrophe that went viral last week has also increased in complexity. Last week, we told you about Brown’s unfortunate circumstance involving her hair and the permanent (not meant for hair) adhesive Gorilla Glue spray. If you’ve somehow missed this story, allow me to sum it up for you in the simplest way I can. Essentially, Miss Brown ran out of one...

    That’s going to leave a mark. A Louisiana woman went viral last week for using Gorilla Glue in place of actual hairspray — before finally checking into the hospital on Saturday to get the hardened adhesive removed, according to posts on her Instagram. The woman, identified in news reports as Tessica Brown, posted on Feb. 4 that her hair had been stuck in place for a month after she ran out of her usual hair product and opted to use the extra-strong superglue instead. “Look: My hair, it don’t move. You hear what I’m telling you? It don’t move,” she...
  • At least 15 Kentucky horses found shot to death at strip mine site

    At least 15 roaming horses were fatally shot at a Kentucky strip mine site, authorities said, describing it as a "battlefield for just horses." The horses were found along U.S. 23 near the Floyd-Pike County line, WYMT-TV reported Tuesday. Some were as young as a year and others were pregnant, authorities said. “This is very inhumane and it's a very cruel act of somebody who just apparently had nothing else to do or whatever just to go back on a strip job and shoot down horses who were, one of them obviously was feeding, had grass in its mouth,” Floyd...
  • World's oldest glue used from prehistoric times till the days of the Gauls

    11/16/2019 11:14:34 PM PST · by SunkenCiv · 34 replies
    Birch bark tar, the oldest glue in the world, was in use for at least 50,000 years, from the Palaeolithic Period up until the time of the Gauls. Made by heating birch bark, it served as an adhesive for hafting tools and decorating objects. Scientists mistakenly thought it had been abandoned in western Europe at the end of the Iron Age (800-25 BC) and replaced by conifer resins, around which a full-fledged industry developed during the Roman period. But by studying artefacts that date back to the first six centuries AD through the lens of chemistry, archaeology, and textual analysis,...

    Demonstrators seeking to get Congress to declare a climate emergency superglued their hands to each other and blocked entrances to the Capitol from House office buildings Tuesday to disrupt scheduled votes. The protesters from the group Extinction Rebellion formed human blockades in the tunnels to the Capitol from Rayburn and Cannon House buildings, which along with the connected Longworth building are where members have their offices. Will Flagle, one of the protesters, said if Congress doesn’t act on climate change “there’s going to be increased drought,” “coral systems will be bleached,” and “there will be millions of climate refugees.” Another...

    A woman has glued her breasts to the road outside the Goldman Sachs offices today as activists ramp up disruption on the final day of protests. The eco-protester was spotted by passengers on a bus lying face down with her top up to her neck. Several police officers surrounded the woman and put up screens to stop the public watching her one-woman protest. It was quite possibly the most spectacular stunt yet as climate change activists targeted London’s financial districts to highlight what they call the business world’s ‘role in our collective suicide’. Extinction Rebellion (XR) demonstrators temporarily blockaded the...

    A tractor-trailer hauling glue and loose tea overturned along the Pennsylvania Turnpike Tuesday morning. The big rig wrecked around 9:15 a.m. on the ramp from the eastbound Turnpike (I-276) to the Northeast Extension (I-476) in Plymouth Township Montgomery County, said state police. The 26-year-old driver luckily escaped with only a non-life-threatening hand laceration, said police. The force of the crash caused the trailer to crack as it came to a stop on its side along the grassy shoulder. As SkyForce10 hovered overhead a short time after the wreck, traffic slowly got by as crews worked to right the rig. Police...

  • Gecko Feet Inspire Amazing Glue That Can Hold 700 Pounds On Smooth Wall

    Science Daily ^ | 2/16/12
    ScienceDaily (Feb. 16, 2012) — For years, biologists have been amazed by the power of gecko feet, which let these 5-ounce lizards produce an adhesive force roughly equivalent to carrying nine pounds up a wall without slipping. Now, a team of polymer scientists and a biologist at the University of Massachusetts Amherst have discovered exactly how the gecko does it, leading them to invent "Geckskin," a device that can hold 700 pounds on a smooth wall. Doctoral candidate Michael Bartlett in Alfred Crosby's polymer science and engineering lab at UMass Amherst is the lead author of their article describing the...

Leaving aside the issue of wether this particular neighbor will get to Heaven anyway (of which i have my doubts), but it made me think: do Horses go to Heaven? I dont recall anything in the Bible about animals in Heaven.

    CHILTON, Wis., - Four Wisconsin women were put on probation for a year Tuesday for gluing a man's penis to his stomach after finding out about his sexual dalliances. The women will get to avoid jail time of 30-60 days as long as they don't violate the terms of their probation, Madison's WKOW-TV reported. They also are to perform community service. Authorities said Donessa Davis's wife, two lovers and an acquaintance of theirs had plotted their revenge last summer, luring him to a Stockbridge motel July 30 where they tied him up, blindfolded and assaulted him. The women told the...

    There are new developments in the bizarre case of a man who was attacking women in the Houston area with super glue. An arrest was made all the way in Oregon. The man under arrest in Portland, Oregon, is 22-year-old Jared Weston Walter. Law enforcement says he's the same man who committed some bizarre crimes here in the Houston area. The crimes in the Pasadena area were again female victims. One as young as 12 years old had Super Glue, or a glue-like substance, put in her hair. We showed you surveillance video of the suspect, but he was never...

    Pasadena police are looking for a man who may be attacking women with superglue, or at least with a glue-like substance. His youngest victim was just 12 years old. It happened to her while at a Walgreens on Spencer Highway near Burke Road. Hers is one of at least three attacks right in the area. The girl's reaction was loud as she shouted after the attack. "'There's glue in my hair! That guy put glue in my hair,'" she recalled. "I tried to point him out so they could see who he was." At the request of her parents, we...

    "Decrying a federal government he says is out of control, former Georgia Gov. and U.S. Sen. Zell Miller said Thursday that America is “spending like we’re Paris Hilton.” But the comparison to the blonde socialite might not be the worst offense in Miller’s litany of all that’s wrong with the country. Speaking to more than 1,000 conservative - overwhelmingly Republican - lawmakers from around the country, Miller said, “Today, we’re spending like we’re Paris Hilton, regulating like we’re Ralph Nader, nationalizing like we’re Hugo Chavez, printing money like we’re the Weimar Republic and taxing like we’re, well, the Democratic Congress.”
