Death by pig

What a way to die!

A group of Calabrian mafia assassins beat a rival with a spade and fed him alive to pigs, Italian police say. They have been rounding up 20 people for various mob crimes including five murders.

The murder probably took place in March 2012 when Francesco Raccosta disappeared, but his body has never been found, the court in the southern city of Reggio Calabria said in a statement.

Investigators arrested one of Raccosta’s suspected assassins after they captured him bragging about the hit in a telephone wiretap.

“It was such a pleasure to hear him scream,” the suspect said. “In my opinion, there’s nothing left of him … This pig can really eat!”

Now that’s dedication

Watch this guy pay his fine of $137 with 137 one dollar bills folded into the shape of pigs, and put into a donut box. It took him around four hours to do it!

Cactus Kate has some useful advice for girls whose boyfriends tell them they are “fat, ugly and a whore”. She suggests no second chances and preferably a restraining order.

Sadly quite a few female friends of mine have gone out with guys like that – no not ones who turn violent, but those who seem to be so insecure about themselves, that they spend most of their relationship trying to lower their girlfriend’s self esteem, presumably in the hope that the girl will never leave them as she doesn’t think she can do any better.

I’d like to say such men are a tiny minority of men, but sadly they are not – they’re a reasonably significant minority (nowhere near a majority though). I don’t believe in feeling guilt or shame for fellow members of whatever demographic group I belong to, but I almost do when it comes to guys like this. I’ve seen far too many bright, attractive (in all senses) confident women just have their self esteem demolished and endure for months or even years in a miserable relationship because they think it is better than nothing. No it isn’t.

No relationship is perfect, and without arguments. But I have a simple philosophy I expound to friends – the 90% rule. The whole idea of being in a relationship is to be happy. If at least 90% of the time you spend together does not involve being happy, then get the fuck out.
