“Gun Death” Bad Beer

No we’re not talking Heineken!

But poorly brewed home-brew:

MAPUTO, Mozambique (AP) — Health authorities in Mozambique say 52 people have died after drinking a contaminated traditional beer.

…UPDATE: The Associated Press reported Sunday afternoon that the death toll had risen to 56 in the case of poisoned funeral beer in the southern African nation of Mozambique.

The AP also noted that the woman who brewed the traditional millet beer was among the dead; funeral-goers suspect that the beer was poisoned with crocodile bile while attendees were at the cemetery.

Insane, but I guess it’s not big deal so long as nobody was shot!

Interesting Variation of the Daiquiri

I can’t remember if I said this here, but I don’t like to use simple syrup in cocktails because I see it as “empty calories”. It just makes the drink sweeter, it doesn’t add flavor or character. maybe if you made your syrup from raw sugar to make a darker syrup it might cross into character, as with other things like honey or agave nectar. I personally use triple sec because it pairs very well with the lime juice, still this pineapple syrup sounds like a killer mix.

I actually prefer to use a cherry just because I would rather have that sweet and bitter flavor, over just more citrus.

“Gun Death” Jeep

To Quote Enzo Ferrari: “Jeep is America’s only real sports car.” But does anybody really NEED one?

25-year-old woman was killed Saturday when the Jeep in which she was riding went out of control on a steep hillside near Santa Clarita and rolled over as it plunged 1,500 feet to the bottom of a ravine, the California Highway Patrol said.

They were attempting some technical driving for the sheer sport of it…and somebody lost their life.

IF IT COULD SAVE JUST ONE LIFE!!11!! Did you know that 120% of all Americans support laws banning Jeeps?

Of course antis wouldn’t want me coming for their cars…because it’s THEIR cars!

“Gun Death” Gym Equipment

A sad one:

The soccer practice in the Berkley Street Elementary School gym was about to begin on Wednesday evening, and when a ball was kicked toward a wall in the building, **REDACTED**, 7, a second grader from nearby Bertram F. Gibbs Elementary School, chased after it, officials said. But as he tried to retrieve the ball, they said, a heavy fold-up bench inexplicably fell from a wall where it was thought to have been secured, striking him in the head and killing him.

My heart goes out to the family. Do you think they care that this wasn’t a “Gun Death”?

“Gun Death” Another Horrible Mother


A mother who allegedly helped two thugs beat a man to death with a baseball bat had her three children in the house as the attack took place, police say.

…A witness, who was in the house at the time, said **REDACTED** ordered him to take her three children into another room where they listened to Mr **DEPARTED** screams as he died.

**REDACTED** then dismembered the corpse, put in into trash bags, and hid it in the garage, concealing parts of the body on top of a grill, investigators say.

Horrible…but not a “Gun Death”, so why look so concerned?

“Gun Death” Horrible Mom


A teenage girl from North Carolina has been arrested and charged with killing her newborn son.

…An investigation has determined that the baby, who was born December 11, died as a result of physical assault, reported Charlotte Observer.

Of course safe-haven laws exist for North Carolina, she could have simply given the child up before it came to this…but it’s kinda like gun control laws, it’s better to FEEL good about the law than to have a law that works.

And it feels better to ignore this death because it’s not a “Gun Death”.

“Gun Death” Alcohol Poisoning

Interesting article:

To the surprise of even health officials, it turns out that most deaths from drinking too much involve middle-aged adults — not teens or college kids.

A report Tuesday from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found six Americans die each day from alcohol poisoning. CDC officials said three-quarters of those deaths are adults ages 35 to 64, and most are men. CDC officials said they thought more would be younger.

You always hear about drunken college students and High School kids killing themselves with booze…but it seems that more seasoned drinkers are the one who wind up dead.

Interesting article…but also not “Gun Death”.

“Gun Death” Horrible

Ye been warned:

A Detroit man convicted in the abduction and slaying of his girlfriend’s 5-year-old niece was sentenced Tuesday to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

…The judge then issued the life sentence for murder and lesser sentences for torture, child abuse, mutilation of a body and arson.

According to prosecutors, **REDACTED** took **DEPARTED** from her east side home, then raped and strangled her. They said he set her body on fire on a mattress in a vacant house about a mile from her home.

A totally horrible crime, and yet not committed with a gun. Oddly it seems its the person not the tool, where the brutality comes from.
