You'll wonder when you see this bizarre pic if anyone survived. I have good news for you.

No one else was in the Maserati that [officer] Arias said is owned by the driver's girlfriend.

Ex-girlfriend. Or soon to be.

This is a really bizarre story. A 46-yo woman is accused of stalking & bullying three teen boys & their families, friends, & others connected with them, for years. This includes not only direct harassment, but also defaming them to others & impersonating them on-line to get them in trouble. They actually had their lives ruined by these activities. A lot of details are not given, but it sounds like a girl who was close to the suspect (daughter or niece?) was romantically involved with the boys & the adult woman retaliated against them. The girl is referred to as “underage” & a “co-conspirator,” so did she actually sic the adult on her past bf’s, or did she go along with the bullying once it started? No mention of charges against her.

If Mama or Auntie (if that’s the case) did all this, it sounds like ASPD & she needs to get serious mental help as well as time in prison, because this behavior is definitely both criminal & sick. And the young girl who was her “co-conspirator” needs to get straightened out too, because she was taught some terrible attitudes & activities that she needs to unlearn before she has to live & act like an adult.

Here is what some people do out of love.

It isn’t enough for smitten parents-to-be (or is it often the doting grandma with the “rabies”?) to invite everyone over for cake & ice cream for The Reveal. This time it was 80 lbs of explosive in a quarry, cuz the family thought that was the safest place... but the blast was heard for miles, some people thought it was an earthquake, & at least one reported a cracked house foundation. At least no one died. Other such absurdities have ended with a plane crash in Texas, another recently in Mexico that was fatal, explosions that have killed people, a huge wildfire in Arizona where the father was a Border Patrol agent who you'd think would be more safety-aware, & a more recent wildfire in California.

Couple has a fairy-tale love story where they met in high school but were reunited 30 years later, by divine intervention they said. They plan their wedding at their “dream home and estate” which has 9BR, 15 BA, a movie theater, ballroom, bowling lanes, tennis court, gardens, waterfall, & “resort-style pool.” They send invitations calling themselves the Royal Couple & invite guests to the ceremony, “Red Carpet Happy Hour,” & a reception lasting until 2;30 a.m., then brunch the next day with live music. On the big day, the groom & the vendors arrive at the mansion to set up… so guess what?

Everyone knows that Hitchcock movie, right? One of my favorites, & I have a hard copy & watch it now & then when things are slow around here.

And this is why (for one example) parents are advised to supervise their kids' computer use, to know what sites they are visiting, who they are in contact with.

I guess all's well that ends well, even if the family is stuck with all that sugar. It's understandable that Amazon won't take it back, because food items out of their control, there's no such thing as excessive caution.

Did you know that a goldfish's size is limited by the volume of water they live in? The little fish in your home aquarium stay small because their habitat isn't big enough for them to grow much larger. The carp that you see in ponds in Japanese gardens are related to pet goldfish but are raised to be bigger. If you give them unlimited space, this is what might happen.
