    Only finished reading it last week. It's amazing how ****ed up and brainwashed a country can be that it can make its people so paranoid that they'd rat family members out to be murdered and think they were doing the right thing.

    Its amazing that this country is still run this way. It seems anyone who is against the regime their first thought is to get out of the country.
    This is a great book on North Korea:

    Woman Pulled Over For Breastfeeding On A Moped

    Busy moms have to multitask, but a woman in Yuzhou, China, recently got stopped by police for breastfeeding her 18-month-old son while riding on a moped.

    The young mom was allegedly weaving her scooter through traffic while holding her 18-month-old son in her arms, when the kid started crying, the Hollywood Gossip reported.

    Witnesses said the mom started to breastfeed the child while keeping a hand on the handlebars, Orange News reported.
    Officers pulled over the woman before she caused an accident.
    "She was risking her life, her son's life and the lives of all the other road users," a police spokesman said according to the website. "We told her that if she carried on we would confiscate her bike," they added.
    The unidentified woman isn't the first mom accused of this sort of distracted driving.

    In June 2008, Catherine Donkers, 29, was accused of child endangerment for trying to breastfeed her daughter while driving from Detroit to Pittsburgh on the Ohio Turnpike. She was also cited for not having a license.
    Donkers told ABC News that she thought the citation was out of line and planned to fight it all the way.

    "It's not like I'm trying to change a diaper while I'm driving, she pretty much just lays there on the pillow in my lap," she said. "I would certainly submit that talking on a cell phone causes far more distraction than nursing a child while she's just laying there."

    In February, 2009, police in Kettering, Ohio, pulled over Genine Compton because she was allegedly breast feeding and talking on the cell phone while driving, WHIO-TV reported.

    She reportedly had the child in the lap with the baby's head up against the steering wheel, adding not only the risk of injury if there was a crash, but possible deployment of the airbag.

    Although she was issued citations for child endangering and violating the child restraint law, she told the station, "If my child's hungry, I'm going to feed it."

    Jaguar attacks croc!

    http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/weird-news/jaguar-ambushes-caiman-like-crocodile-2252884

    A fearless jaguar emerges from the river like a crocodile as it ambushed a caiman before sinking its teeth into its neck and dragging it away.

    These stunning images show the 20-stone cat striking with lightning speed while the eight-foot reptile basks on a river island.

    In a flurry of action the ferocious cat sinks its teeth and claws into the back of the leathery reptile before whisking it away in its jaws.

    The battle-scarred jaguar is well-known to biologists, who have nicknamed him 'Mick Jaguar'.

    He is estimated to be seven years old and is almost blind in his right eye, probably due to battles defending his territory.

    Astonished photographer Justin Black, 39, said: "He lifted the 150lb caiman from the ground and trotted toward the water like it was a doggie bone.

    "The fact he attacked from the water is astonishing, It was reminiscent of crocs attacking land animals in Africa."

    The scene unfolded by the Cuiabá River in the Pantanal Wetlands of western Brazil.

    Mr Black, from Washington DC, USA, was on a boat with fellow photographer Jeff Foott when they spotted 'Mick' stalking Yacare caiman.

    He said: "Using the hyacinth for cover, 'Mick' slowly entered the small channel and swam up directly behind the caiman, keeping his profile as low as possible.

    "Once at the edge he exploded from the water and onto the caiman's back, swinging the claws of his right paw into its side.

    "He then hooked the caiman with his left paw as well and went for a killing bite at the back of the skull - but he didn't have a good angle.

    "In the process his momentum carried them both into the water where he readjusted his position and his teeth found purchase on the back of the caiman's neck.

    "He then pushed the caiman into the water broadside - pushing a bow wave ahead of them as he swam.

    "When he reached the opposite beach he quickly disappeared into the grasses with his kill."

    According to scientists, there are an estimated 4,000-7,000 Jaguars in the Pantanal.

    They have become specialist caiman killers and hunt during broad daylight, surprising the cold-blooded reptiles while they bask in the sun.

    They are also the largest and most powerful jaguars in South America, enabling them to take down larger prey.

    Any of you who used watched WWF remember Sunny? Well she used be very hot.

    Anyway, she obviously didn't invest her money well as she is a shell of her former self, though not quite as bad as what she was a few years ago.

    So, times are tough for her at the moment as she recently did a promo called "under the sheets with Sunny" where you could have your photo taken with her in bed for $50, or for $75 you could have her put her head on your chest.

    Here is a report by some tragic individual
    http://markedout.com/3/post/2013/09/under-the-covers-with-sunny.html#.Ui790tI3tFu

    Slightly NSFW.

    Surely a visit to a brass would be more rewarding!
