There are Mean Teachers...and Then There Are Rare Animals.

So for tonight I have eight stories to share with you. So I'll give a short breakdown of these stories and then link you to them. In mention to the title, I have two stories about crazy, mean teachers and really cool animals (and some crazy things people do for their pets).

Dad discovers Autistic Son bullied at school by Teachers
This is such a sad story. Really, it truly is. So, Stuart Chaifetz's son, ten year told Akian (cool name, it reminds me of Death Vader's real name) is autistic and goes to a school for kids like him. For six months, Mr. Chaifetz was called in for meetings because his son was being violent. But apparently, Akian has never hurt anybody before.

And so one day, he put a recorder on his son and taped what exactly went on. Well to his horror, Akian's teachers and her aids emotionally abused him, called him names, laughed when he cried, made fun of him, and other horrible things. Well these teachers are still teaching (just not at Akian's school anymore) and Mr. Chaifetz just wants a public apology. To read more and watch the dad's rant (which is actually a well made video and he acted very mature in it), click here.

Virginia Teacher fires blanks at students. 
Manuael Ernest Dillow, 60, apparently pulled a blank firing handgun from the back waistband of his pants and fired the gun for each student there. He apparently did it to get the attention of his students (who were in a welding class) and it put fear into the kids. He's being chared with 12 felony counts, all class 6, and each punishable up to five years in prision along with a $2,500 fine. He's been since release on a $20,000 bond.

Man accidenlty mistakes girlfriend for a hog...and shoots her. 
I don't think this couple will last the year. Apparently, Steven Egan, 52, and his girlfriend, Lisa Simmons, were camping in Florida. While Egan went looking for a hog, he heard something moving in the woods (Lisa had gone looking for oranges even though Egan told her to stay put in the campsite), and fired. He accidenlty shot Lisa in the leg and she had to be airlifted to the hospital where she's reported to be in serious condition.

On a happy note...
I saw these really cute pictures this guy, Jason Lee, took of his daughters for his mother when she was diagnostics with Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Really, these are adorable pictures! Click here for some smiles and laughs.

The Easiest Recipe for Peas ever.
So this article is really commenting on the comments on a recipe by Paula Deen for peas, but I just find the recipe funny. Because its so ridiclous that she would need to put this up. Here's the recipe.
"Melt the butter in small pot and add the peas. Cook over medium heat until peas are warm."  
I know, really hard, right? *sarcastic* Anyways, to read the comments and the rest of the article talking about the comments, click here.

Doggie Weddings...What Next?

The happy couple.

Scruffy Rubin and Snickers Carter were happily married on Sunday in a wedding with 100 guests, a wedding cake, open bar, receptionist, and even security. The ceremony was conducted by "priest" Harry Farber (who wore a black collar with novelty dog bones on it), and both dogs were dressed up finely for it in a custom counture dress and doggie tux. They trotted down the asile on faux grass, were accompained by a ring bearer (I don't know how they got the rings on!), flower boy, groomsman (a pug named Max) and an usher. A live band plaed "You Light Up My Life".

Their owners, Ernie Rubin and Ann Carter gave the $5,000 wedding at the Palm Desert Resort Country Club in Palm Desert and asked guests to donate to the Orphan Pet Oasis Humane Society of the Desert in North Palm Springs. To read the whole thing and watch the video, click here.

First ever footage of white orca.
Russian scientists have released video of what could be the world's only all-white adult male orca. Iceberg (the whale), believed to be 16 years old, is a part of a pod of 13 other orcas off the coast of the Commander Islands in the Bering Sea. Iceberg was photographed twice in 2010 and the scientists are not sure if he really is a true albino. To read the whole thing, click here.
And you can watch Iceberg, below.

Purple Crabs!

Four New species of crab have been discovered in the Philippines on the island of Palawan. And one of them as an unusually bright purple shell.
National Geographic reports that the Insulamon palawanese may use its uniquely colored shell to help identify its own kind.
"It is known that crabs can discriminate colours. Therefore, it seems likely that the colouration has a signal function for the social behaviour, e.g. mating," Hendrik Freitag of the Senckenberg Museum of Zoology in Dresden, Germany told AFP.
Aww! Purple frogs!
Apparently there is a crab that is blue (called the Chesapaeke blue crab) and this also reminds me of the purple frog with a pointy nose. To read the whole thing, click here.
