Heartwarming Tearjerker of the Day: The sheer cliffs at the mouth of Sydney Harbor have long been a popular Australian suicide spot. But they’re about to get a lot more deadly — the local man who is credited with talking at least 160 people out of killing themselves since 1964 died this week.
Window-watcher Don Ritchie, known as the Angel of the Gap, could spot the troubled ones from his home across the street; he’d wander down to the cliff-edge and calmly ask, “Can I help you in some way?” More often then not, he could. He’d chat with them a bit, then invite them back to his place for a cup of tea.
“My ambition has always been to just get them away from the edge, to buy them time, to give them the opportunity to reflect and give them the chance to realize that things might look better the next morning,” Ritchie once said. “You just can’t sit there and watch them. You’ve got to try and save them.”

Wendell is a clothing designer with a long history of crack addiction. He still puts together clothes with materials he finds in the trash. He’s often very combative and will never let me take a decent portrait. But today he was strangely serene.

We’ve seen a lot of meth faces that have made us jump and yell, “OH DAMN!”
But this one out-meths all the meth faces, ever.

This woman has been arrested five times on meth related charges. Four of those arrests came after her face melted off from an explosion in the meth lab.




Makes me wonder if she’s still cooking to pay for her surgeries, a la Walter White.
This is beyond terrible.
ADDICTION IS ROUGH Y’ALL!!!

Well This Is Something You Don’t See Every Day of the Day: A Miami police officer pulled over for reckless driving by a Florida Highway Patrol officer was ordered out of his car at gunpoint, then handcuffed and detained in an incident caught on the trooper’s dash cam.

State patrol officer D.J. Watts pursued the zigzagging Miami officer, 35-year-old Fausto López, for nearly five minutes at speeds topping 120 miles per hour. When he finally stopped, Watts approached the vehicle with her gun drawn “for her own safety.”

Lopez told the trooper he moonlights at a private school during off-duty hours, and was rushing to avoid being late. López was charged with second-degree reckless driving and released.

“We immediately launched an administrative investigation,” a Miami Police spokesman told The Miami Herald. “However, we’re taking a back seat, and watching the criminal process as it takes place. At the conclusion of the criminal process we will take whatever administrative action we deem necessary.”

DIY of the Day: Framing pictures is for olds. All the cool kids are copying their pictures directly onto blocks of wood.

Crystal Shea says:

Make sure to use copy paper and a laser print copy- it works best this way. Also, to those who are having issues getting all the paper residue off, here’s a tip: get as much paper as you can off, then wet the image with water again so the paper is no longer visible, then apply the mod podge before it’s dry. I found this helps for me.
