Greater Mole Rat adventures

The Greater Mole Rat (Spalax microphthalmus) is a species of rodent in the Spalacidae family. It is found in Russia and Ukraine. Greater Mole Rats eat mainly roots of wild and cultivated plants. At the end of the summer Greater Mole Rats lay vegetables in store for the winter. Sometimes such stores reach up to 15 kilograms of potatoes and beet-root.

Girl Sues Cops Over Sex Tape "Screening"

MAY 27--A teenage girl claims that Westchester County cops last year confiscated a sex tape of hers during the execution of a search warrant and then showed the X-rated video to law enforcement colleagues for their amusement and "sexual gratification." According to a federal lawsuit, a copy of which you'll find below, the tape showed the New York girl "at age fifteen, naked and engaging in oral sex and vaginal intercourse." The girl, now 17 and identified as "Jane Doe" in the May 21 U.S. District Court complaint, charges that a trio of Harrison Police Department officers screened the video after it was retrieved from the bedroom of Joseph Porto, the girl's boyfriend (a law enforcement source told TSG that police examined statutory rape charges, but could not positively identify the male in the video, though they suspected it was Porto). The girl was present in Porto's home while the residence was being searched last May following his arrest on a felony marijuana distribution charge. The girl claims that police watched the video in her presence "while laughing," and that they put a camcorder in her face and "mockingly" asked her questions about the explicit video as it played. She also alleges that a Harrison detective told her, "I should beat your ass for this. I hope your parents beat your ass." The teenager claims that the investigator also retrieved anal beads from a bedroom, put them in her face, and asked, "What do you do with these--put them in your mouth?" The girl charges that cops subsequently played the video "sufficiently close to the cell in which the boyfriend was incarcerated so that he could hear the audio component of the video," and that they laughed about the video and made "repeated references by name to his girlfriend as she was depicted on the video." She also contends that the Harrison officers "thereafter played the video for other members of the department to watch for their amusement, sexual gratification, and to further degrade Plaintiff." Among other causes of action, the girl's lawsuit, which does not specify monetary damages, claims that her privacy has been violated and she was falsely imprisoned. Captain Anthony Marraccini said that he and his two codefendants deny all of the girl's "outlandish claims." Her lawyer, Jonathan Lovett, did not return a TSG phone message about the lawsuit.

Mechaphiliac Admits to 'Having Sex with' 1,000 Cars

We know what it's like to fall in love with a car, and we have nothing at all against a little steamy-window sex in the backseat of a '67 Chevy -- as long as you're with someone else.

Edward Smith, on the other hand, currently "lives with" a white Volkswagen Beetle named Vanilla whom he calls his "girlfriend."

Smith, a self-professed "romantic," writes poems about his cars, and says he first had sex with a car at the age of 15. Since then, he says he's only been attracted to autos, not humans.
Smith has several other cars besides Vanilla -- including a 1973 Opal GT, named Cinnamon, and 1993 Ford Ranger Splash, named Ginger -- but he says "his most intense sexual experience was 'making love' to the helicopter from 1980s TV hit Airwolf."

So one question certainly begs to be asked of all this love-making: How does one "have sex with" a car? Is it all about the tailpipe? Is he burrowing a hole in the back seat? It's unclear from the Telegraph article that profiles him, but his tone seems to imply that there's something kinky happening here: He added: "I'm not sick and I don't want to hurt anyone, cars are just my preference."
