Man’s Three Word Obituary And Other Famous Last Words

dead

(PCM) If you have seen the headlines recently that you have most likely heard about Stig Kernell of Sweden and his three word obituary that has since gone viral. Kernell had an incredible sense of humor right up until his death at age 92, so his obituary simply read ” I am dead”.  Those three simple words are certainly garnering Kernell with a lot more attention postmortem that he would have ever expected.

Reading Kernell’s last words got us thinking about other famous last words, so we dug around a little bit and complied the list below of famous last words that without a doubt live on in infamy well after the individual is deceased.

(PCM) Today will be an absolutely epic day for space enthusiasts!  You will not only be able to witness a rocket being launched into space, but you will also be able to see Mars and witness a total lunar eclipse in the overnight hours.

You can watch live webcasts of the launch at both NASA.com and Space X by clicking here!

As it begins to get dark later this evenings the planet Mars will be at its’ very brightest as it is currently making its’ closest approach to Earth since 2008 at 57 million miles away. Those that look to the sky just after sunset will be able to see Mars as large orange beacon overhead. According to Space.com, it will be blazing as brightly as Sirius, the most luminous star in the sky other than the sun.

If all that wasn’t enough, a total lunar eclipse will be visible in the overnight hours that will be visible to all of North and South America. The Slooh, Virtual Telescope Project and NASA webcasts will provide viewers with a front-row seat to all the eclipse action. The total lunar eclipse, the very first of 2014, is set to begin at 12:53 am EST with the moon entering Earth’s shadow. The total eclipse will be visible around 3:06 am EST and it will end around 4:24 am EST.

The next lunar eclipse is set to take place on October 8th later this year.

Looks like we aren’t getting any sleep tonight!

Angelina Jolie Look-a-Like Stabs A Man After He Refuses Sex

Luminita1

(PCM) Yes, you did read that headline correctly! A 31-year old Romanian woman, who bears an eerie resemblance to actress Angelina Jolie, allegedly forced a taxi driver to have sex with her twice at knife-point before brutally stabbing him six times when he could not perform a third time.

The woman, whose name is Luminita Perijoc, jumped the taxi driver, Nicolae Stan, when he approached her residence to deliver wine. Perijoc dragged Stan into her residence, held a knife to his neck and forced him to engage in sexual intercourse with her twice.

When Stan could not perform the act of sex for a third time, Perijoc proceeded to stab Stan six times. He was finally able to escape and flee to a bedroom where he locked himself inside and contacted the authorities.

Perijoc, who models her style after Angelina Jolie’s Tomb Raider character Laura Croft, claimed to be under the influence of heavy medication when she was arrested at the scene. She also initially claimed to be the victim in the attack. She was charged in court with a four year suspended sentence.

As for the victim, Stan claims that he has been the victim of merciless teasing and has become a local celebrity of sorts. Many don’t understand why Stan, who happens to be married with three children, would have refused Perijoc’s advances, however Stan claims that they have no idea what is like to be held a knife point by a screaming woman.

Good point Stan! We think many of those ridiculing you would have reacted exactly the same way.

Oregon Judge Rules That Flashing Headlights Is Free Speech

headlights1

(PCM) In a case that has me a little bit confused, an Oregon judge has ruled that flashing your car headlights at another vehicle is considered to be freedom of speech, at least on the road.

Here’s the story for the case in Oregon: A driver named Chris Mills was delivering a truckload of logs to southern Oregon and a sheriff’s deputy was traveling behind him. Mills flashed his headlights to warn drivers of a UPS truck that was traveling from the opposite direction.

The deputy pulled Mills over and cited him with a $260 dollar fine for improper use of his headlights because yet another deputy had witnessed Mills flashing his headlights from behind the UPS truck. That deputy notified the other deputy who was traveling behind Mills so that he would pull him over and get him to stop his signaling.  Phew! Got all that?

Mills decided he was going to fight the ticket and when the case went to court the judge ruled that Mills use of his headlights was protected under the rights of free speech and the deputy’s use of the law was actually unconstitutional. Mills was able to prove in court, acting as his own attorney, that there was no law banning the use of headlights as a way to communicate with other drivers on the road.

Apparently Oregon is not the first state to legalize the use of headlight flashing as a form of road communication between drivers. There have been similar cases that fell under free speech protection in both Missouri and Florida. Also, the state of New Jersey is proposing a new bill that would make it legal to flash your headlights at other drivers to warn them about police activity in the area.

Brazilian Woman Robbed On Live TV

Brazil-robbery1

(PCM) Talk about ironic circumstances! A Brazilian woman was being interviewed on live TV speaking about the problem with robberies in Brazil, when she actually robbed during the interview. The entire incident was captured on camera in broad daylight.

The robber came up from the woman’s side and snatched her necklace from around her neck, but ultimately ended up dropping it while fleeing from the scene. You can watch the video of the incident below:

Having a long-standing issue with robberies and crime, Brazil is showing some concern about safety at this summer’s World Cup set to be held in Rio de Janeiro. Authorities in the area are attempting various crime fighting techniques including drones and bomb-detecting robots. They are hoping to keep the World Cup crime rate as low as possible.
