This is what is called a “downer cow”. A female cow who, after a couple years of being constantly pregnant so humans can steal her milk and murder her calves, is too sick to remain “profitable”. Downer cows usually can not stand by their own strength and are brutally dragged to a violent slaughter.

Ricardo Lopez (January 14, 1975 – September 12, 1996), also known as the Björk stalker, was an Uruguayan-born American pest control officer from Hollywood, Florida, who is known for his attempted assassination of the Icelandic musician Björk in 1996. Lopez recorded a video diary of himself talking about his plans over an eight month period, culminating in his videorecorded suicide. Lopez mailed a letter bomb, disguised as a book from a touring company and rigged with sulfuric acid, to Björk’s residence in London. The bomb was intercepted by Scotland Yard before being able to harm anyone.
On January 14, 1996, the day of his 21st birthday, Lopez began filming his video diary. The video tapes (around eighteen hours worth) include Lopez ranting in various stages of undress about philosophical issues, his construction of the bomb, rants about Björk and her relationship with Goldie, and Lopez showing off his squalor-filled apartment, which he refers to as a “pig sty”. The videos show a noticeable deterioration in Lopez’s mental state as the date of his suicide grows nearer, and ends with him shaving his head, painting himself in grease body paint, and committing suicide by firearm after he mails the device to Björk’s London home. The tapes, including Lopez’s suicide, are widely available on the internet.
Lopez’s letter bomb was disguised as a book sent by Björk’s record label, Elektra Records. The device was intended to spray sulfuric acid at the opener, killing or disfiguring them. Lopez intended the device to make himself “the one person who changed her life the most”, originally wanting to inject the bomb with the HIV virus, but abandoning the plans for feasibility.
On September 12, 1996, Lopez mailed the device to Björk’s residence in London, and filmed the final entry in his video diary, entitled “Last Day - Ricardo Lopez”. In the video, Lopez paints his face in red, black and green greasepaint, shaves his head, and kills himself with a gun next to a hand painted sign that reads “The best of me” (it is assumed that Lopez intended on covering the sign with his brain matter as a result of the gunshot) while Björk’s song, “I Remember You”, plays in the background. The videotape, which was still in Lopez’s camera as police discovered the body, continued to roll as Lopez lay motionless in his apartment.
Early on September 16, a Van Buren Plaza maintenance worker, noticing a “persistent, foul odor” and blood coming through the ceiling of the apartment below Lopez’s, contacted the Hollywood Police Department. Police arrived, and discovered Lopez’s decomposing body, along with his video tapes. The Broward County Sheriff’s Office evacuated almost one hundred people from the apartment while a bomb squad continued to search for further explosives, though only one device was constructed.
Police contacted Scotland Yard to warn them of the device that had been delivered. Metropolitan Police intercepted the bomb from a south London post office and detonated it without incident.
Danish filmmaker, Sami Saif, condensed Lopez’s video diary into a 70 minute documentary, entitled The Video Diary of Ricardo Lopez, released in 2000. You can torrent it here.
A Glasgow nightclub has installed a two-way mirror which allows male revellers in private booths to spy on unsuspecting women as they visit the toilet! With no notification or signage anywhere in the venue many female club goers have been left feeling embarrassed and used. Although they do briefly show the mirrors in a promo video, the club has been quickly deleting comments and posts on their social media from club goers trying to alert others to the situation. This is pretty much illegal and hugley violates privacy. Thank you The Shimmy Club for giving us a shiny, new, creative and cool take on objectification.
i’m never leaving my house again, this world is just too fucked up.
gross gross gross gross gross
Good morning disgusting.
- “No space, leave the place” (fingernail test)
- A two way mirror must be set INTO the wall, not placed on top of it.
- If you rap/knock against the mirror, one installed onto a wall (a normal mirror) will make a dull sound, because there’s something behind it. A two-way will have more reverberation.
- Use the flashlight on your phone to shine on the mirror, if it’s a two-way, you’ll be able to see into the other room.
- You can also shield your eyes and see in if you lean up against the glass.
- The room being viewed will have to be brightly lit (10x brighter than the room looking in), so if you’re in a typical dimly lit club bathroom, you’re ok.
boosting the fuck out of this
also this is their not even apology. idk what to call it.
how fucking gross
This should be a top news story.
This is an animal dying on a fur farm in China. It grew up in a barren cage the size of a newspaper, living off meat processing waste deemed unfit even for pet food production. When it reached adult size, it was yanked out of the cage and received a couple of blows to the head, after which it was hung upside down & slowly skinned alive. After the fur was pulled off over its head, the agonizing body was thrown onto a pile of carcasses, where it expired in the most horrible way you can (or should I say, can’t) imagine.
Besides bludgeoning, the killing methods on fur farms include gassing, electrocution, poisoning with strychnine, or breaking the animals’ necks. Most of these methods don’t exclude the possibility of the animal regaining consciousness while its fur is being… removed.
This is the true cost of a “fabulous”, “glamorous” fur coat or collar, not the amount of money on the price tag.
Smash the face of every piece of shit fur industry supporter out there.
People think I am lying when I say animals survive the “killing” process frequently. I’m guessing that the videographer didn’t have to wait a long time for this shot.
