A Utah “mother,” Megan Huntsman, 39, of Pleasant Grove, gave birth to seven children between 1996 and 2006. And, on April 13, 2014, she was arrested…after all seven tiny bodies were found stuffed in cardboard boxes inside the garage where she once lived. One of the seven did appear to have been stillborn.

One day last March, Richard Wright handed out $50 and $100 bills to visitors of Halifax, Nova Scotia, saying if they didn’t need it, to share with others. That is until police took him in for a “wellness check,” which got him sent to a mental-health facility. Later, though his daughter Chelsea told reporters her father was a generous man with no mental-health issues, and friends swore he was a caring fellow filled with compassion, at press time he was still hospitalized.

Microsoft founder Bill Gates was preparing to give a speech in Vancouver, British Columbia, recently, while  circumcision dislikers prepared a protest. Only because the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation gave more than $160 million for circumcision programs to developing countries based on medical evidence the procedure lowered chances of transmitting HIV, reducing AIDS cases. The CFAP (Canadian Foreskin Awareness Project) claims the procedure reduces that organ’s “tenderness,” reducing the pleasure of sexual interaction.
