'My Soul Left My Body': Parents Share Most Bizarre Objects They Confiscated From Kids – Newsweek

Commenters flocked to one viral internet post after thousands of parents came together to share their most bizarre stories about confiscating random—and potentially dangerous—objects from their children.Initially posted in Reddit's r/AskReddit forum, the post has received over 13,800 votes and over 3,500 comments in the last day. Receiving 94 percent upvotes from the popular subreddit's 34.7 million members, Redditor u/Slik2665 asked a question directed squarely at people with kids."Parents of Reddit," the Redditor wrote. "What is the worst thing you have seen/confiscated from your child?"Sharing stories of their children finding illegal drugs concealed in seemingly-harmless containers and scary moments with sharpened kitchen utensils, the "Parents of Reddit" did not disappoint and received thousands of votes themselves within the viral thread's comment section for their contributions.In the post's top comment with over 18,500 votes, Redditor killerqueen5 said they were outdoors with their child, when the 2-year-old delivered them a startling surprise."My two year old ran up to me with a small tin she found on the playground," they wrote. "I opened it up and found some meth."While a toddler finding methamphetamine on the playground is a singular story included within the comments of a viral Reddit thread, the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse reports that children aged 5 and younger have become increasingly vulnerable to accidental exposure to illegal drugs and other harmful substances. Between 2000 and 2009, the center reported that opioid exposures in children 5 years old and younger increased by 93.2 percent and between 2013 and 2015, exposures to fentanyl and oxycodone increased. Earlier this week, Newsweek reported that an Ohio couple is facing manslaughter charges after their 3-year-old child was poisoned and their 20-month-old died as a result of ingesting fentanyl.According to the Drug Enforcement Agency, the conversation surrounding drug use and education frequently involves adults and teenagers, but fails to consider younger children and the potential of an accidental exposure to drugs and other illegal substances.Although the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse reports higher rates of accidental exposure to harmful and illegal substances than in previous generations, data shows that younger children have also become more susceptible to other dangers, like swallowing jewelry, toys, magnets and other "foreign bodies." In a report published in 2019, the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System revealed that between 1995 and 2015, children under the age of six swallowed "foreign bodies" twice as often as they did in the two decades before.Responding to u/Slik2665's viral r/AskReddit prompt, many parents shared scary stories of their children's attempts at eating inedible objects, and other objects they've confiscated while raising children. Thousands of parents detailed the scary objects they have had to confiscate from their children in response to a viral internet prompt. D. Anschutz/DigitalVision Redditor u/Tammytalkstoomuch, whose comment has received over 1,400 votes, said their son had just started crawling when they noticed something in his mouth."My young son was just crawling, and one time I saw he had something in his mouth. He was reluctant to give it up, but I sideswiped his mouth just like on a puppy," they wrote. "Finally spat it out - a large shard of glass.""Absolutely no idea where it came from or where he got it," they added.Other parents added scary stories of their own, mentioning other attempts to swallow car keys, USB chargers and small amounts of change, but Redditor u/DMWv1 said their daughter took a liking to the taste of arachnids, and detailed their effort to keep her away from the eight-legged creatures."My daughter decided that she liked the taste of spiders for a while, so we had to keep her away from spiders otherwise she would eat them," they explained. "Those were fun times."In an intense comment, Redditor u/Psychological_Bat865 said that their quick thinking prevented their child from harming themselves and described the fear they felt when they found their 2-year-old brandishing one of their most dangerous kitchen utensils."My 2 year old figured out how to scoot his high chair across the kitchen and I didn't realize that was a problem until I went pee one time and came back to him holding a meat cleaver with a giant grin on his face," they wrote."I got it back from him with no damage done, but my soul definitely left my body at the sight of him," they added.

Director’s bizarre excuse for affairs – NEWS.com.au

High-profile director Joss Whedon confirmed cheating on his wife with many young women on the set of Buffy – but gave a truly wild reason as to why.Director Joss Whedon has addressed allegations of his abusive behaviour for the first time in a new interview, denying any wrongdoing.“If I am upsetting somebody, it will be a problem for me,” Whedon, 57, told New York Magazine of his reasoning as to why negative descriptions of his behaviour on the sets of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spin-off Angel weren’t fully factual and his intentions not malicious.“I don’t believe that,” he said, shaking his head, in response to a costume designer’s accusation that he’d grabbed her arm. “I know I would get angry, but I was never physical with people.”He also denied an allegation from a “high-level member of the Buffy production team” that he reportedly once made out with an actress on the floor of an office, reports the New York Post.“That seems false. I don’t understand that story even a little bit,” he said, before removing his glasses, rubbing his face, telling the reporter he needed to go to the bathroom and then, upon his return, further explaining that it didn’t make sense because he “lived in terror” of his affairs being found out.Those affairs, however, he did at least admit to having happened and regretting. Whedon was married to Kai Cole from 1995 to 2016. Cole accused her ex-husband of having had “multiple affairs” with his young female ingénues in a scathing letter she published in 2017.“I feel f***ing terrible about them,” he said, adding that such affairs with a director mess “up the power dynamic”. He defended his decision to have them at the time, though, noting that he felt he “had” to sleep with beautiful young women he was surrounded by and was “powerless” to resist.The reporter laughed in response to the comment, to which Whedon retorted: “I’m not actually joking.”“He had been surrounded by beautiful young women – the sort of women who had ignored him when he was younger – and he feared if he didn’t have sex with them, he would ‘always regret it,’” New York Magazine reported. “Looking back, he feels shame and ‘horror’, he said.”Representatives for Whedon did not return The Post’s request for further comment.Buffy, Angel stars speak outTrouble started for Whedon last February when Buffy actress Charisma Carpenter, who played Cordelia Chase, and then Michelle Trachtenberg – who played Sarah Michelle Gellar’s title character’s younger sister, Dawn Summers – came out with bombshell claims of alleged abusive behaviour.“Joss Whedon abused his power on numerous occasions while working on the sets of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel,” Carpenter, 51, claimed at the time. “While he found his misconduct amusing, it only served to intensify my performance anxiety, disempower me and alienate me from my peers. The disturbing incidents triggered a chronic physical condition from which I still suffer. It is with a beating, heavy heart that I say I coped in isolation and, at times, destructively.”“I was not mannerly,” Whedon told New York Magazine of Carpenter’s allegations. “Most of my experiences with Charisma were delightful and charming. She struggled sometimes with her lines, but nobody could hit a punch line harder than her.”Trachtenberg, meanwhile, came out to say there “was a rule” that Whedon was “not allowed in a room alone with” the now-35-year-old actress, who was 15 at the time she starred in the show.Both David Boreanaz and Sarah Michelle Gellar stood in solidarity with their co-stars.“While I am proud to have my name associated with Buffy Summers, I don’t want to be forever associated with the name Joss Whedon,” Gellar, 44, wrote. “I stand with all survivors of abuse and am proud of them for speaking out.”Elsewhere in the lengthy New York Magazine article, Whedon also denied allegations made by Justice League stars Ray Fisher and Gal Gadot. The director said Fisher, 34, is a “bad actor” and chalked 36-year-old Gadot’s issues up to a communication issue.He claimed: “English is not her first language, and I tend to be annoyingly flowery in my speech.”This article originally appeared in the New York Post and was reproduced with permission

Man's bizarre 'home remedy' for impotence destroys his sex life – New Zealand Herald

Lifestyle18 Jan, 2022 07:34 PM2 minutes to readA man will likely never have sex again after his partner accidentally released expanding foam into his penis in a bizarre attempt to treat his impotence. Photo / Urology Case ReportsA US man who accidentally sprayed expanding foam into his urethra in a bid to treat his impotence may never be able to use his penis again, doctors have warned.The 45-year-old's partner had inserted a straw attached to a can of weatherproofing spray foam into his urethra and inadvertently pressed the button, deploying the foam.For three weeks he struggled with difficulty urinating, pain around the opening of his urethra and blood coloured urine.After scans showed the foam had hardened and become "anchored" in the man's penis, doctors operated to remove the foreign object inside him.However, doctors were forced to create a new opening between his scrotum and his anus in order to successfully remove all of the foam, some pieces measuring up to nearly 11cm in length.A man will likely never have sex again after his partner accidentally released expanding foam into his penis in a bizarre attempt to treat his impotence. Photo / Urology Case ReportsUnfortunately for the man, his sexual complaint has now worsened according to a medical journal published in the Urology Case Reports following the incident in 2020.Due to his pre-existing urethral stricture disease, the likely cause of his erectile dysfunction, medics were unable to remove the foam from inside his urethra.Following the surgery, three tubes were inserted to help him pass urine, with the man needing further surgery to repair his urethra.The authors behind the report stated it was "rare" for objects to get stuck in penises, but noted other items such as straws, cotton tipped swabs, batteries or nails and cables had been reported in the past.The doctors shared photos of the foam being removed and outside of the body. Photo / Urology Case ReportsGiangiacomo Ollandini, a British-based urologist, told the MailOnline inserting objects into the male genitalia was known as "sounding" and carried an array of health risks."Some persons end up practising 'sounding' because they are not able to have good erections anymore, and they insert a stiff rod within the penis to be able to have intercourse," he told the publication."Any object with the correct size and shape is considered if there is no availability of a dedicated instrument."I have seen urethras severely injured by repeated sounding, and unfortunately they rarely recover very well."

Edmonton’s road-clearing crews switching gears with bizarre weather – Globalnews.ca

Road-clearing crews are having to quickly pivot operations thanks to the sudden temperature swings in Edmonton of late. “We did experience some rapidly-dropping freezing temperatures over the course of the night,” Andrew Grant, general supervisor of infrastructure field operations, parks and roads services, said on Tuesday.“When we started to see the rain turn to sleet and sleet turn to snow, we did see some actual beneficial impacts of that.“The sleet and snow actually adhered to our residential roadways, ultimately causing some friction on that sheer ice.” 1:42 Edmonton under winter storm warning Edmonton under winter storm warning Grant said crews started depositing a heavy chip and sand mix to try and improve traction.

‘Mild’ COVID Doesn't Mean What You Think It Does

Dalibor Despotovic via Getty ImagesAs omicron cases explode in the United States, health officials have offered stark warnings about our collective future. The variant is so contagious, “most people are going to get COVID,” Janet Woodcock, the acting head of the Food and Drug Administration, recently said. Two years into the pandemic, that’s not the news anyone wanted. So, many people are taking solace in emerging evidence suggesting omicron really does cause milder symptoms than previous variants. There’s a lot of talk about just getting omicron — and getting it over with .But that’s misguided for many reasons, not the least because there is still so much experts don’t know about this variant and how it works. It’s also problematic because many people’s sense of what it means to have a “mild” case of COVID-19 is really ... off.Advertisement Here’s what you need to know about what mild actually means — and what it doesn’t.First, the definition of mild isn’t set in stone. For health care providers and laypeople, the term tends to conjure up pretty different things.You or I might hear “mild” and imagine spending a few days with a cough or sniffle. And we might hear “moderate” and think of being knocked out in bed with a fever for a week. But doctors tend to have a higher bar for when someone is considered really sick.Advertisement Just look at the National Institutes of Health’s definitions. According to the agency, you can have a “mild” COVID-19 case that includes any combination of fever, cough, sore throat, malaise or profound fatigue, a headache, muscle pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or a loss of taste and smell.You’re considered moderately ill if the disease has spread into your lower respiratory system, or your oxygen saturation levels have dipped past a certain point.To complicate matters further, not every health group or health care provider uses exactly the same terms. Some refer to “severe” versus “non-severe” disease. All of that is important to keep in mind as you read news reports about mild COVID-19 and think about what a case might mean for you or your family.So you could have a ‘mild’ case of COVID and not be able to get out of bed.Advertisement Some of the terminology around the severity of COVID-19 is fluid, but one thing that is clear is that having mild COVID-19 is not the same thing as having an asymptomatic case. Asymptomatic COVID-19 means you do not develop any symptoms during the course of your infection.Preliminary data suggests that asymptomatic infections are quite common with omicron, though again it’s still too soon to say with any certainty — and monitoring asymptomatic transmission depends heavily on regular testing.Mild infections, on the other hand, exist on a spectrum. You might experience a few days of feeling off, like you’ve got a cold. Or you could feel really terrible, like you’ve got a bad case of the flu.“The big question is whether or not you’re able to recuperate at home,” Carl Lambert Jr., a Chicago-based family physician, told HuffPost. If you can — even if that means you’re really not able to do anything, and you need days or even weeks of rest, fluids and medication — you’ve still got a “mild” case.“When I talk to patients, I explain that moderate or severe means that you had to go to the hospital and they had to keep you to watch you,” he explained.Mild (and even asymptomatic) illness has led to long-term complications.Another reason to take COVID-19 seriously is the clear evidence that even people with no symptoms during their infection have developed long-haul COVID-19. Studies from last summer suggested that about a quarter of patients with mild or asymptomatic cases went on to experience long-term symptoms, like brain fog, migraine and fatigue.Researchers are still exploring the connection between mild illness from omicron and long-haul COVID-19. Even if studies don’t ultimately show that is the case, there’s recent anecdotal evidence of people grappling with “mild” infections that have at least made them miserable for a month or longer.Vaccines protect you against getting really sick.So yes, a mild case of COVID-19 might knock you out for a week or two. That’s no fun and it can be a significant logistical challenge. Getting vaccinated helps ensure your illness does not develop into something more serious. There’s also evidence that getting vaccinated helps lower your risk of developing long-haul COVID-19.Advertisement Hospitalizations are soaring right now, and there is early evidence from places hit hard by omicron at the beginning of the current surge that deaths might begin to spike too.But the risk is simply much higher if you haven’t been immunized. Recent estimates suggest that you’re 17 times more likely to go to the hospital if you’re not vaccinated against COVID-19. If, on the other hand, you’re vaccinated and boosted, you’re much more likely to experience mild symptoms or no symptoms at all.“The patients who are having mild symptoms usually are patients who are vaccinated and boosted,” Lambert said.Experts are still learning about COVID-19. The information in this story is what was known or available as of publication, but guidance can change as scientists discover more about the virus.

Lauren Smith-Fields' Family Sues Connecticut Police Over Investigation Into Her Death

The family of Lauren Smith-Fields, who died on Dec. 12, says there are inconsistencies in the police report about her death.Family handoutThe family of a 23-year-old Connecticut woman who died under mysterious circumstances is suing a police department for its alleged mishandling of the investigation.Lauren Smith-Fields, a Black woman, was found dead in her apartment on Dec. 12, but more than a month later, answers to how she died remain a mystery. Advertisement According to a Bridgeport Police Department report, Smith-Fields was drinking tequila at her apartment with Matthew LaFountain, a white man whom she met on the dating app Bumble, when she became ill and went to vomit. The two continued drinking into the night when Smith-Fields got a text and stepped outside. The incident report, reviewed by Rolling Stone, said she’d gone outside to get something from her brother, then went to the bathroom for several minutes after she returned.Her date, LaFountain, later told an officer “he thought it was odd, but didn’t feel it was his place to say anything as he didn’t know her that well,” according to the police report. LaFountain called police the next morning after he discovered blood coming out of Smith-Fields’ right nostril and saw she wasn’t breathing. Her family said they found inconsistencies in the report, including that the 23-year-old was intoxicated when she went outside to see her brother, Lakeem Jetter.Advertisement More from Rolling Stone: The police report also doesn’t match the story of the last relative said to see Smith-Fields alive that night. “I haven’t texted my sister since December fourth,” Jetter said, recounting the night of December 11th, when he called Smith-Fields to bring out his basket of clothes he was picking up. “I didn’t know that anybody was in there. She came out and she was out there for like 10-15 minutes and she walked back into the house. She looked normal. She didn’t look sick, she didn’t look tired, she didn’t look drunk. I’m her second older brother, if I would have seen her drunk I would’ve said ‘What are you doing?’ … ‘Why do you look like that?’” The family also said police did not collect evidence in the apartment. Shantell Fields, Smith-Fields’ mother, told Yahoo News that she found a condom with semen inside her daughter’s apartment, along with a pill that the family believes may be a sedative.Smith-Fields’ brother, Jetter, told Rolling Stone other pieces of evidence appeared uncollected.Advertisement “The first night we saw cups there, flipped plates and the lube. The cops didn’t take any of the cups to test the liquor,” Jetter told the publication. “There was a big stain of blood in the middle of her bed, with streaks going to the right side.”The family also claims Bridgeport Police were unprofessional in their handling of the investigation, and told the family to stop calling the department. The family’s attorney, Darnell Crosland, said Detective Kevin Cronin failed to properly notify Fields of her daughter’s death, and that LaFountain has not been questioned as a suspect.“There’s a typical protocol that’s followed when you have a situation like this,” Crosland told Yahoo News. “If you have a husband or wife or boyfriend or girlfriend call the police because one of them is dead, typically the person who is surviving is pivotal to the investigation. Most times they are looked at as a suspect because they were the last person with the deceased, and in this particular case, the police have been very hesitant to even call this person a ‘person of interest.’”The family announced Sunday they would be suing the department.“We’re filing a lawsuit here in Bridgeport to compel them to process this case, to protect this family, and to give them the equal rights they deserve under the Connecticut Constitution,” Crosland told NBC Connecticut. The family has set up a GoFundMe to hire a private investigator to look into the death. “In the beginning of this nightmare out family was extremely mistreated by The Bridgeport Police Department who as we stated initially declined to investigate Lauren’s untimely death,” the family wrote on the GoFundMe page. “Although BDP has now decided to begin to conduct an investigation, our family would like to conduct one of our own!”Federal authorities have arrested five Bridgeport officials in the last two years, including the former police chief, Armando J. Perez, who was sentenced to prison last year for rigging his own hiring process to ensure he became the city’s top cop.

Neil Gorsuch Reportedly Refuses To Wear Mask In Court, Forcing Others To Call In

Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch doesn’t just sit in a stolen seat on the nation’s high court. He’s also apparently a terrible co-worker.That’s a revelation in an NPR report that said Gorsuch refuses to wear a face mask to protect against COVID-19 ― even as the other justices do so amid the omicron surge.Advertisement Worse, the conservative justice refuses to go along with the public safety measure, although Chief Justice John Roberts has asked everyone on the court to mask up out of respect for Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who has had diabetes since childhood. Diabetes is a high-risk factor for developing severe COVID-19. Five of the justices, including Sotomayor, are older than 65, another risk factor.Worse still: Gorsuch’s seat on the bench is right next to Sotomayor’s.Gorsuch’s refusal has reportedly forced Sotomayor to call in for weekly conferences instead of participating in person, according to NPR’s veteran Supreme Court reporter Nina Totenberg. Sotomayor is the only justice who has consistently worn a mask since the start of the pandemic.The Washington Post’s Ruth Marcus asked a court spokesperson why Gorsuch wasn’t wearing a mask and got no response. Advertisement In related news, the court’s conservative majority last week voted 6-3 to block the Biden administration from requiring workers at large businesses to either get vaccinated or undergo regular COVID-19 testing. Two of the lawyers arguing against the mandate tested positive for COVID and had to make their cases remotely.Gorsuch likened the vaccine to “a medical procedure that affects [people’s] lives outside the workplace” in a concurring opinion, which confusingly suggests he’s amenable to mandates in the workplace ― but not elsewhere.Outside of work, Gorsuch is a spokesperson for the National Constitution Center, a nonpartisan Philadelphia institution dedicated to civics education and civility in politics. He’s also written a book on the subject.Gorsuch, nominated to the Supreme Court by Donald Trump, filled a court vacancy in 2017 after Senate Republicans refused to vote on Barack Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland.Related...Tulsa Megachurch Pastor Under Fire For Rubbing Spit Into Man's Face During SermonDoes Your Mask Fog Up Your Glasses?

The Chase fans horrified after contestant reveals VERY bizarre reason she wants to win the prize money… – The US Sun

THE Chase fans were left horrified after a contestant revealed that she was waiting for her cat to die so she could buy a dog. ITV presenter Bradley Walsh, 61, was joined by four more hopefuls including contestant Ramisa, 25 from London. 2Contestant Ramisa horrified fans after revealing what she plans to spend the money on 2 The local council officer admitted that she was a big dog lover and wanted to use the money to buy a pooch. The pet enthusiast explained that she was "waiting for her cat to die" so she could invest her time in a new pet. She said: "I like dogs a lot, I spend a lot of my time researching dogs, watching dogs, playing with dogs. "I even downloaded this app to dog sit, calling myself the dog whisperer. Unfortunately no one hired me, I don't know if it was because they were a bit freaked out." Presenter Bradley Walsh, 61, then asked her if she wanted to open her own kennels but she explained that she just had her heart set on buying her first dog. She continued: "Right now I have a cat and she's a bit cranky - so I'd like to buy a dog in the future." Most read in TV Bradley then asked if she wanted a dog in the near future, with the contestant responding: "Well it depends if she dies first." A gobsmacked Bradley replied : "So the cat's got to peg it before you get a dog?" With the contestant laughing and replying: "Exactly." The player then told the host that if her cat was still alive when she goes to buy a dog, then she would use the prize money for a deposit on a house with a special room for her feline on the opposite end of the house. "I'd like to put a deposit down on a house where either my cat is dead and I can get a dog or she has a separate bedroom far far away," she added. The contestant's confessions left fans open-mouthed, with one writing: "Nah this girl going on about waiting for her cat to die. #TheChase" Another posted: "This horrid woman really wants her poor cat to die. #TheChase" A third shared: "I appreciate that she's looking forward to the death of her cat. #TheChase" One angry fan commented: "She needs to lose, the cat hater. #TheChase" "I think this girl wants her cat to die a bit too much. #TheChase," another penned. Another asked: "Does Rasmisa need to be reported to the RSPCA after that intro on #TheChase." "TheChase What the hell is wrong with this woman on The Chase, actively saying she wants her cat to die?," one tweeted. The contestant managed to answer three questions correctly in the cashbuilder round. After banking £3,000 her fellow contestants suggested she could go for the higher offer from Sean Wallace. But she wasn't tempted to risk it all for and stuck with the £3,000 she had earned and made it back to the final chase. Ramisa was joined by Robin, 53, a patent attorney from Oxford, Marie, 62, a supply teacher from Somerset and Mike, 35, a bar manager. All four members of the team made it back to the final chase with a total prize pot of £10,000. With 19 spaces to catch the players, Sean had his work cut out. But despite executing one push back, the team were caught out by the quizmaster with 10 seconds to spare. The Chase is on weekdays on ITV at 5pm. The Chase viewers claim show is ‘fixed’ as contestant is ‘robbed' after 'ridiculous' questions
