How do you like your human head? Roasted, boiled? We serve it all

Saturday February 15 2014

A restaurant in Nigeria was shut down after it was found to be selling dishes made from human flesh. The police arrested 11 people including the owner and recovered at least two fresh human heads when they swooped on the eatery in Anambra, Nigeria after a tip-off.

The bloodied and disembodied heads were found wrapped in cellophane sheets — and police said roasted human head was even on the menu.
One local resident said: “We always saw weird people coming and going.”

A pastor, who was surprised to learn he had been served human flesh, complained to the police.” I ate at the restaurant and the bill was very high. The workers told me that I ate human flesh. I was shocked.”

It’s a miracle! It’s a miracle! It’s tears of oil

Hundreds of people are flocking a home in northern Israel to view a statue of the Virgin Mary that residents say “weeps” oil. Members of a Christian family from Tarshiha, near the Lebanon border, say they have witnessed a miracle in their living room.

The home owner, Osama Khoury said that his wife Amira found the statue “covered with oil” recently. Amira said the statue “spoke to her” and told her not to be afraid. Parts of the statue appear to be slick with moisture, even after it is wiped off. The family says it is most striking when a “tear” seems to roll down the statue’s cheek. It says some 2,000 people have come to see the statue in only one week.

Was the Turin Shroud due to an earthquake?

Scientists now say that an earthquake in Jerusalem in AD 33 may have caused an atomic reaction which created the Turin Shroud and skewed radiocarbon dating results.

The shroud, which is purported to be the burial cloth of Jesus — showing his face and body after the crucifixion — has intrigued scholars and Christians alike.

But radiocarbon dating carried out by Oxford University in 1988 found it was only 728 years old. Other scientists have previously suggested that neutron radiation may have been responsible for the ghostly image of a crucified man with his arms crossed.

Some have proposed that it came from the body itself, or was generated by an event inside the tomb, pointing to a divine origin linked to the resurrection.

I’m Sheila but you can call me Sexy...

An Ohio woman who loathed being named Sheila legally changed her first name to Sexy to reflect her personality.

A judge approved the request from the 41-year-old Pataskala woman, formerly named Sheila Ranea Crabtree. In her application, Crabtree told a judge that her husband and teenage daughters approve of the change.

When the judge asked why she chose Sexy, Crabtree said she’s fun and free-spirited and thought the change would make her complete.
