A Candidate Says Opponents are Exaggerating His Involvement in His Son's Sex Doll Manufacturing Company:
71-year-old Darrell McMullen of San Marcos, California is running for his fourth term on the board of Palomar College. He's one of six candidates for three seats. And his opponents are running a pretty innovative smear campaign.
Turns out Darrell's son Matt owns a company called Abyss Creations . . . that makes LIFE-SIZED ANATOMICALLY-CORRECT SEX DOLLS. And Darrell's opponents are painting him as a partner in the company, and an all-around deviant.
Darrell says that's not true. He says he helped his son with the paperwork to start the company back in 1998, but doesn't have a role in the company.
He also made a SPECIAL effort to point out that he's never used one of the dolls.
By the way . . . Abyss doesn't just make sex dolls. They ALSO make lifelike prosthetic breasts for cancer victims.
One in Three People Are Worth More Dead Than Alive?
According to a survey by a British insurance website called Confused.com, one in three people are worth more DEAD than ALIVE.
That's because their life insurance would pay their family more in benefits than they have saved up.
That sounds depressing, but the alternative isn't any better. 59% of people are NOT worth more dead . . . because they don't have any life insurance.
40% of people think that their dependents will have trouble paying the bills if they were to die . . . and 11% think their family would end up LOSING their HOME without them around.
Nearly two in three people . . . 64% . . . would leave behind a mortgage that isn't paid off yet.
A Woman Gets Home From Winning a Karate Tournament, Finds an Intruder in Her House . . . And More Karate Ensues:
18-year-old Wilberto Zapata of Fresno, California picked the WRONG APARTMENT to break into.
On Sunday, Wilberto was apparently SO DRUNK that when he got home to his apartment complex, he was confused about which apartment was his. He went to the apartment he THOUGHT was his . . . and the door was locked.
He broke in, STILL didn't realize it was the wrong apartment, and went to the bathroom to get ready for bed.
Unfortunately for him, the apartment belonged to 20-year-old Jannine Ramirez. She wasn't home at the time because she was out WINNING A KARATE TOURNAMENT.
When she DID get home, she heard noises in her bathroom, busted in . . . and started using those karate skills on Wilberto. She ended up chopping and kicking him until he was outside.
He was arrested for unlawful entry. He didn't go to the hospital . . . but did tell the cops he was surprised how hard she'd kicked him.
