Amanda Madden, Anonymous: "I Burn Myself To Get Off: 6 Realities Of Extreme Fetishists"(Cracked)
The Internet is full of bizarre fetishes. Lee is a devotee of "vore" -- he's specifically turned on by people being swallowed alive. You might have stumbled across it or something like it on certain parts of Tumblr. Meanwhile, John is into the somewhat-less-publicized fetish of setting himself and/or others on fire. We know what you're thinking: How on Earth does that even happen? Did he fall dick-first into a campfire one day and think, "Okay, I guess I'm into that now"? Well ...
Annie Oakley (born Phoebe Ann Mosey; August 13, 1860 - November 3, 1926) was an American sharpshooter and exhibition shooter. Her "amazing talent" first came to light when the then 15-year-old won a shooting match with traveling show marksman Frank E. Butler(whom she married). The couple joined Buffalo Bill's Wild West show a few years later. Oakley became a renowned international star, performing before royalty and heads of state.
Oakley also was variously known as "Miss Annie Oakley", "Little Sure Shot", "Little Miss Sure Shot", "Watanya Cicilla", "Phoebe Anne Oakley", "Mrs. Annie Oakley", "Mrs. Annie Butler", and "Mrs. Frank Butler". Her death certificate gives her name as "Annie Oakley Butler".
That was Annie Oakley.
It's rained over 5" in 24 hrs. I have a small pond in my backyard now.

Lois Home On De-range answered:
Back in the wild west, a woman had to be rough and tough, and it didn't hurt any to be a sharpshooter like Annie Oakley, either! Although it probably DID hurt to look like Calamity Jane, but not as much as it hurt to look AT her. They couldn't all be a pretty as Annie.

South Korean Lee Sedol won his first match against a computer program developed by a Google subsidiary on Sunday in the ancient board game Go, denying a clean sweep for the artificial intelligence in a five-match series.
Lee, one of the world's top players and a holder of 18 international titles, recovered from three consecutive losses against the AlphaGo program developed by DeepMind.
The 33-year-old professional player has admitted to underestimating AlphaGo's skills but also said the program was not perfect, asking supporters to keep watching the contest.
DeepMind founder Demis Hassabis told reporters the loss was a valuable learning tool and would help identify weaknesses in the program that his team needed to address.
Experts did not expect an artificial intelligence program to beat a human professional for at least a decade, until AlphaGo beat a European champion player last year. Lee was considered a much more formidable opponent, however.
A South by Southwest volunteer has been dismissed and festival organizers apologized after an U.S. Olympic fencer who is Muslim was asked to remove her headscarf in order to get a credential.
South by Southwest registration official Amin Simms said in an emailed statement that it was ''an insensitive request'' and against the festival's policy to ask Ibtihaj Muhammad to remove her hijab Saturday at the Austin festival. Muhammad couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
Simms wrote that festival organizers apologized to Muhammad and that they were embarrassed by the situation.
Muhammad is set to compete for the U.S. at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro this summer.
Los Angeles County's coroner is resigning after only 2 1/2 years, saying understaffing left him unable to do the job amid complaints of stacked body and testing backlogs.
Medical Examiner-Coroner Mark Fajardo will return to his former job as chief forensic pathologist in nearby Riverside County.
The coroner's office is one of the busiest in the nation, handling about 8,500 physical examinations a year as part of more than 20,000 investigations to determine the cause of death. But there have been complaints about the speed of handling cases, which include everything from natural deaths to drug overdoses and shootings.
About 180 bodies are stacked in the morgue.
The office has a backlog of several hundred toxicology tests, which determine such things as whether drugs or alcohol were in a body. The tests are taking up to six months to complete. The coroner cannot close a case while the tests are pending.
State capitols are often referred to as "the people's house," but legislatures frequently put up no-trespassing signs by exempting themselves from public-records laws.
That tendency was apparent when the Associated Press sought emails and daily schedules of legislative leaders in all 50 states. The request was met with more denials than approvals.
Some lawmakers claimed "legislative immunity" from the public-records laws that apply to most state and local officials. Others said secrecy was essential to the deliberative process of making laws. And some feared that releasing the records could invade the privacy of citizens, creating a "chilling effect" on the right of people to petition their government.
Without access to such records, it's harder for the public to know who is trying to influence their lawmakers on important policy decisions.
All legislatures allow people to watch and listen to their debates. But an AP review of open-government policies found that many state legislatures allow closed-door caucus meetings in which a majority of lawmakers discuss policy positions before public debates. Others have restrictions on taking photos and videos of legislative proceedings. In some places, lawmakers have no obligation to disclose personal financial information that could reveal conflicts of interest.
When one of the country's largest for-profit college companies failed in 2014, the Education Department faced a choice. It could shut down Corinthian Colleges Inc., incurring a $1 billion loss to taxpayers and sending students scrambling, or it could find someone to take the school off its hands.
With a history of fraud discovered by auditors and investigators, and poor outcomes for students, the company drew only one interested buyer: a student loan debt collection firm that had formed a nonprofit educational company called Zenith Education Group.
A little over one year after Zenith took the helm, a review of the school's operations by The Associated Press shows that despite ostensibly new oversight by the Obama administration, the business model for what had been a failing chain of career training schools hasn't fundamentally changed.
The Education Department has permitted Zenith, the new owners, to recruit students using large-scale telemarketing and paid media campaigns that sometimes advertise programs that no longer exist. Executives who formerly oversaw Corinthian's business practices, which state and federal officials said were fraudulent, remain employed at Zenith.
As with Corinthian, Zenith still requires students to waive their right to sue the school in a class action - a legal power play unheard of among traditional colleges. Zenith continues to recruit students using the very same ads that Corinthian ran during the very same daytime TV talk shows.
As bee colonies continue to collapse worldwide, a team of European researchers has found that poisoned bees carry a lethal cocktail of dozens of different pesticides.
"It is the broadest spectrum of pesticides and their metabolites till now detected in honeybees," according to the study, which appeared in a recent issue of the Journal of Chromatography A.
A February report from the United Nations Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services warned that human activities are putting 40 percent of invertebrate species, which include bees, along with 16 percent of vertebrate pollinators, at risk of extinction. The pressure on pollinators could endanger 75 percent of the world's food supply, the report found.
The findings are an important step toward pinning down which pesticides and chemical interactions may be causing bee colonies to collapse , according to toxicologist Tomasz Kiljanek of the National Veterinary Research Institute in Poland, who led the study.
Colony collapse rates have surpassed 30 percent in Europe, Kiljanek and his colleagues noted in the study, and are higher than 40 percent in the United States.

The federal government does not have to explain to a Nevada man why his wife-a grandmother and farmer in Mexico-has been denied entry to the U.S. for more than 20 years under "alien smuggling" rules, a federal judge has ruled.
A lawyer for Reno landscaper Jose Isabel Esparza-Munoz, 69, had been arguing in court since November about whether immigration officials must do more than simply cite the section of law pertaining to smuggling. U.S. immigration officials have been blocking 65-year-old Maria Esparza's entrance to the country since she first acknowledged in 1994 that a son listed on her original visa application was really her grandson born to her teenage daughter.
U.S. District Judge Robert Jones said in dismissing the case Thursday none of that matters because Esparza-Munoz didn't become a naturalized U.S. citizen until after the visa was denied.
"Because the spousal visa denial occurred when plaintiff was not a citizen, no violation of the due process clause can have resulted from the denial, because only citizen spouse have any cognizable liberty interest in the context of spousal visa applications," the judge wrote in a 3-page opinion.
Jones has been in the spotlight recently because the 9th Circuit reversed a number of his decisions and earlier this month took the extraordinary step of ordering him off a case as part of the remand to district court - the fifth time that has happened in just the past two years.

Maslenitsa is a traditional Russian holiday marking the end of winter that dates back to pagan times.

Moviegoers didn't have much to go on with the mysterious "10 Cloverfield Lane," but the words "Cloverfield" and "J.J. Abrams" were enough.
The Abrams-produced monster movie, a so-called "spiritual successor" to 2008's found-footage hit "Cloverfield," opened with a better-than-expected $25.2 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. That was good enough for second place to the Disney animated hit "Zootopia," which stayed on top with $50 million in its second week, a slide of only 33 percent from its opening weekend.
The weekend's biggest disappointment was Sacha Baron Cohen's "Brothers Grimsby," which flopped with a mere $3.2 million. It's a career low box-office debut for the shape-shifting British comedian by a wide margin.
Making little impact in their debuts were Lionsgate's romantic comedy "The Perfect Match" ($4.2 million) and Focus Features' Christian tale "The Young Messiah" ($3.4 million).
Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.
1. "Zootopia," $50 million ($83.1 million international).
2. "10 Cloverfield Lane," $25.2 million ($1.5 million international).
3. "Deadpool," $10.8 million ($11.3 million international).
4. "London Has Fallen," $10.7 million ($12 million international).
5. "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot," $4.6 million.
6. "The Perfect Match," $4.2 million.
7. "The Young Messiah," $3.4 million.
8. "The Brothers Grimsby," $3.2 million ($3.2 million international).
9. "Gods of Egypt," $2.5 million ($26.4 million international).
10. "Risen," $2.3 million.

The total of 1,600 small pandas sculptures are designed by French artist Paulo Grangeon, were displayed at the first place Sanam Luang and scheduled for a flash mob in nine other locations at the Thai capital landmarks, aiming to raise funds for the environmental organization World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in an attempt to highlight conservation and point out that there are only 1,600 pandas remain living in the wild.
