"Jesse Harding Pomeroy (November 29, 1859 – September 29, 1932) was a convicted American murderer, possibly serial killer, and the youngest person in the history of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to be convicted of murder in the first degree. He was found guilty by a jury trial held in the Supreme Judicial Court of Suffolk County in December 1874.

In March 1874, a ten-year-old girl from South Boston named Katie Curran went missing. On April 22, 1874, the mutilated body of four-year-old Horace Millen was found on the marsh of Dorchester Bay. Immediately, the police detectives sought out Pomeroy, despite lacking evidence implicating him in the crime. The body of Katie Curran was found later, in the basement of Pomeroy's mother's dress shop. Her remains were hastily and carelessly concealed in an ash heap..."

"Issei Sagawa (佐川 一政 , born April 26, 1949) also known as Pang, is a Japanese man who, while living in Paris in 1981, killed and cannibalized a Dutch woman named Renée Hartevelt. 

For two days, Sagawa ate various parts of her body, eating most of her breasts and face, saving other parts in his refrigerator. He also took photographs of her at each eating stage. He then attempted to dump her body in a lake in the Bois de Boulogne, but was seen in the act and arrested by French police. When he was caught, he was carrying two suitcases.

Fucking Hoorays!


This guy I follow on Twitter @Juskewitch posted a 1 minute video of this guy, names Andre Ingram, who played basketball on a G League for 10 years who finally got to play for the LA Lakers and scored 19 points! And to see a guy who plugged along and walked out on the court and nail it, was just fucking incredible. It made me so happy.


I too want to shoutout two social media things. One is this body-positive model named @ali_tate_cutler who posts photos of herself where she is bending over and has rolls, or in swimsuits — they are just beautiful and it’s nice to see photos that  are like my body. Another Instagram that has been making me fucking crack up is called @HonestCouple, where this guy takes stock photos of the most annoying couple photos and posts the “honest” caption of what one of the is really thinking. It needs to be a thing.
