<![CDATA[Creators of Kids Entertainment Who Were Also Perverts]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/perverted-creators-of-kids-entertainment/jacobybancroft
You would probably be shocked to learn just how many famous perverts there are working in the children's entertainment industry. Just because you create entertainment solely for kids doesn't mean you don't have the same urges and thoughts as other people. In fact, for some reason, it seems like children's authors and animators are more perverted than anyone.

Below is a list of famously perverted people who created content for kids, ranging from perverted kid's authors to perverted illustrators. You'll probably be surprised by a few of the people on this list, and you'll definitely look at some of their art a little differently. 

Creators of Kids Entertainment Who Were Also Perverts,

Carl Barks
It's a safe bet to say that Carl Barks loved ducks. The American cartoonist became famous for his comics, including Donald Duck and Scrooge McDuck, but his fascination with the odd waterfowl did not just stop with children's cartoons. He also enjoyed painting erotic portraits of ducks.

Over his lifetime, he painted ducks in exotic locales and different time periods, with mostly all of them featuring voluptuous female ducks in different states of undress. So if you thought that ducks can't be sexy, 
think again. 

Chris Sanders
If you're a fan of Disney, you probably know Chris Sanders's work. The animation director and illustrator is perhaps best known for co-writing and directing Lilo and Stitch in 2002. It's a wholesome tale of what it means to be a family and never leaving anyone behind. Given the family-friendly nature of the film (and all Disney films, for that matter) it's a little shocking to discover that Sanders likes to experiment with more adult illustrations in his spare time. 

He likes to draw busty, scantily-clad girls, most of them being in what can only be described as an uncomfortable position. Drawing pinup girls isn't considered as shocking as it once was, but what makes it slightly disturbing is the fact that most of the girls look like grown up versions of Lilo or her big sister Nani. Childhood = ruined. 
Dr. Seuss
Although he experienced great success with his children's books, Theodor Seuss Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, still wanted to write something a little more risque. He was so determined to write an adult book that when he switched from Vanguard to Random House publishing, he had one condition: his very first book with the new publisher would be an adult one.

The result was The Seven Lady Godivas: The True Facts Concerning History's Barest Family. The book tells the story of a group of nudist sisters, and unsurprisingly, it completely flopped. Nobody wanted to buy a book filled with naked ladies drawn by the same guy who did Green Eggs and Ham. 
Joe Shuster
Besides Truth, Justice, and the American Way, does Superman also enjoy a good whipping from time to time? That seems to be the sentiment shared by the hero's co-creator, Joe Shuster.  Recently unearthed comics reveal that besides drawing Superman, Shuster enjoyed illustrating comics that involved a disturbing amount of BDSM, including whips, exotic torture, and the use of red-hot pokers. The creepiest part is that many of the characters Shuster drew in these situations look almost exactly like Superman and Lois Lane. It looks like the Man of Steel can handle some pain. 
Lewis Carroll
Lewis Carroll is one of the most influential children's authors of all time. After writing the popular Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, as well as its sequel, Through the Looking Glass, Carroll cemented himself as one of the defining voices in children's literature. His extracurricular activities, though, have caused quite a few raised eyebrows.

Besides being an avid writer, Carroll (whose real name was Charles Dodgson) loved photography. But the subject matter of his photos probably wouldn't fly today: of the approximately 3,000 photos he took in his lifetime, over half are of little kids, with 30 of them being nude or semi-nude. He often was accompanied by small children wherever he went and there are conflicting reports about how close Carroll was to all of them. 
Mort Walker
As a kid, maybe the only appealing part of the newspaper is the comics page. Brief little snippets into the lives of Garfield or the Peanuts gang can offer a little chuckle to make your day just a little bit better. One staple of the newspaper comic page is Beetle Bailey, a comic about a lazy soldier in the army.

Chances are you've read a few Beetle Bailey comic strips in your life, but you might be shocked to learn that the creator, Mort Walker, also liked to draw his characters in X-rated situations. There's an entire collection of Mort Walker comics that depict his characters doing very NSFW things. The sexual tension between General Halftrack and his secretary is played for lighthearted laughs in the everyday comic strip. In his dirtier version? Not so much. 
Osamu Tezuka
Even though he became widely known as The Father of Manga, and was responsible for popular comic series like Astro Boy, famed Japanese cartoonist and animator Osamu Tezuka had a freaky side that not many people knew about. To understand just how naughty Tezuka could get, look no further than his 1970 animated movie Cleopatra: Queen of Sex. The film bombed spectacularly both in Japan and in America, where it had the problem of being too pornographic but also not pornographic enough.

When it was released in America, they gave it an X rating and advertised it as the first pornographic animated film (which it wasn't). Those who did turn out to see it were disappointed by the surprising lack of sex. Sure, there were some weird sex scenes and animated boobs popped up almost everywhere, but a lot of people believed it didn't deserve its rating. 
Roald Dahl
Roald Dahl is the visionary writer who brought such classics like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and The BFG to little kids everywhere. He's known for whimsical stories and goofy drawings, but not many people are aware of his foray into adult literature. Simply put: his more mature stuff is not for prudes

There's the story of Uncle Oswald, known as the greatest fornicator of them all, who goes on a quest to produce a sexually appealing smell, and then turns into a giant penis that floats away into space. Not just content with odd fantasy entries, he also wrote darker erotic books like The Great Switcheroo, which told a story about two guys who want to wife swap during a darkened sex session without their wives knowing. 

Steve Ditko
Any comic book fan should know the name Steve Ditko. The comic book artist helped Stan Lee create the character of Spider-Man and his style set a high bar for comic book art and illustrations. Though basically a superhero in the comic book fandom, rumors persist that he also helped contribute to a few bondage and other BDSM comics during his career, and extensive articles have been written discussing whether Ditko did or did not do it. 

Those who think he did are quick to point out that Ditko shared an office with Eric Stanton, who specialized in kinky comics and illustrations. It doesn't seem all that unlikely that Ditko might have helped Stanton from time to time when a deadline was approaching, and even though certain risque covers bear Stanton's name, the style is almost undeniably Ditko's.
Shel Silverstein
Nothing quite showcases how perverted Shel Silverstein was more than his country song "Who's Your Daddy, Sue?" If you expected the famous children's author, who penned the classic The Giving Tree book, to embed some of his wit and heartfelt emotion into the song... you would be so wrong.

The song, which is a response to the classic "A Boy Named Sue" song that Johnny Cash made famous, but Silverstein wrote, tells the same story but from the father's perspective. If you're looking for a happy ending, don't expect one. The song ends with the Dad grateful that he has a boy named Sue because it helps on nights when he can't score with the ladies (meaning: creeeepy incest).

If that wasn't enough, the famed author of Where the Sidewalk Ends was also a Playboy columnist for over 40 years! He contributed naughty cartoons and wrote a series of travelogues detailing the sexual nature of exotic locales from around the world that he visited.

<![CDATA[16 Vaping Horror Stories That Will Make You Think Twice About Vape Pens]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/vaping-horror-stories/jacob-shelton
If you believe the guys and girls who vape, it’s a healthy alternative to smoking cigarettes or dipping, and it gives you the same nicotine rush without destroying your body. While studies are still being done on whether or not that claim holds any water, there are plenty of vaping horror stories in the news and online that should keep you from ever buying e-cigarettes or one of those vape machines that look like a sonic screwdriver. If you vape and you’re trying to quit, this list is full of vaping cons and reasons to put down the vape pen once and for all.

If you live in any kind of urban setting, you’ve definitely seen a gang of vape bros strolling through town with their fedoras and vape pens, billowing out walls of faux smoke. It’s super lame, but that’s not the only reason why vaping is bad. Aside from the possible negative side effects of inhaling nicotine in any form, the battery packs and chargers that frequently accompany vaping instruments have been known to explode, and if the nicotine liquid is swallowed it can tear your body apart. But don’t take our word for it. Do yourself a favor and read through these vaping horror stories. One of them might just save your life.

Vote up the scariest vaping-related horror stories, and feel free to share some of your own near-death vaping experiences with us in the comments.
16 Vaping Horror Stories That Will Make You Think Twice About Vape Pens,

Exploding E-Cigarette Sets Bro's Pants on Fire
If you're smoking e-cigs, it's probably not a good idea to keep the battery in your pocket. It might be the easiest place to keep it, but it could also set your leg on fire and give you permanent burns. According to the man with the burnt leg, “My left leg was totally covered in fire and my right was singed. I could have lost my private parts or worse. It was terrifying. If I’d been vaping at the time it could have taken my face off." 
Toddler Swallows E-Cigarette Refill
This has to be one of the scariest things that can happen to a parent. In 2014, a two-year-old girl swallowed a nicotine cartridge and almost immediately started vomiting up everything she had. Luckily, she was rushed to the hospital and given a clean bill of health a few hours later. 
14-Year-Old Blinded at Brooklyn Mall
In 2016, a 14-year-old boy was blinded when an e-cigarette exploded at a mall kiosk in Brooklyn. The injury occurred after an employee connected one of the vaporizers to the battery of the store. The boy, Leor Domatov, said that he can no longer see out of one eye because "I got a cut through my cornea."
E-Cigarette Burns Hole in Young Dad's Lungs
A 33-year-old dad from Surrey, England said that he gave up smoking for vaping in order to extend his life, but the "healthy" alternative ended up doing him more harm than good. While he was taking a hit, the machine shot hot nicotine juice down his throat and burned a hole in his lung. After going to the hospital and getting hooked up to an oxygen machine, he's still having trouble kicking the vape monkey. "I want to give up completely but at the moment I’m just having the odd roll-up. I’m such an addict I can’t just go cold turkey even after what happened.”
Man Loses Eye After E-Cigarette Explosion
A man in Orange County, CA lost an eye while he was vaping in March 2016. Joseph Cavins' vape pen exploded and sent shrapnel nine feet into the air. "I felt like I was hit on the side of the head and everything went south from there," Cavins said.
Dude Burns Mouth on Hot Coils
If you think something's wrong with whatever you're using to vape, stop whatever you're doing and check it out. What you shouldn't do is mess around with it while you walk down a busy street because you're probably going to end up burning your mouth like Redditor Develop-mental: "I decided to postpone the inspection till a [sic] reached the other side of the street. Bout halfway across the street, I took a hit off the mod, and immediately realized I was still holding the top cap in my other hand. I had stuck the glowing, burning coils directly to my lips and tongue."
E-Cigarette Explodes, Burns Down House
A family of four experienced one of the worst tragedies that can befall a household when their 15-year-old son's e-cigarette charger caught his bed on fire and the flames quickly spread to the rest of the house. Luckily, everyone escaped with their life intact, but significant damage was done to the home
E-Cig Ruins Teen's Life
A 17-year-old boy in Ogden, NY suffered a horrendous fate when his e-cigarette exploded in his hand as he was taking a drag, putting a hole in the back of his throat and forcing him to get nine stitches in his hand. His mother, who was present for the aftermath, said, "He came flying through the door, I actually thought he had had a car accident. There was so much blood."
Vaping the World's Hottest Pepper Is Probably Not a Good Idea
Russell Hawkins grows Carolina Reaper chili peppers in his personal garden. And since Carolina Reapers are currently ranked as the world's hottest pepper, you'd think he'd know the dos and don'ts of capsaisin safety. Sadly for Mr. Hawkins, he does not. Hawkins had the brilliant idea to try to vape his own homegrown scorchers (plus, snort some and rub them in his eye for good measure). Want to guess how it ends? (Hint: the answer is "not well AT ALL.") Skip to 3:27 to get to the good/terrible stuff. 

Exploding Battery Causes Burns
Reddit user Eskimoroll had a run-in with some bad batteries when he tried to power his personal box mod. The unregulated batteries shorted something out and things got real. "[The batteries] started venting gas and fire from a short or something. It was terrifying. My face was fortunately okay but I got a good burn on my arm, there was some furniture damage from the battery acid, and the mod was completely melted."

<![CDATA[True Stories of Fights That Broke Out in Lines]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/true-stories-of-fights-that-broke-out-in-lines/jacob-shelton
What is it about waiting in line that turns normal human beings into sentient, angry bags of trash? Have our brains been so warped by the culture of immediacy we live in that waiting in line for two minutes throws us into a murderous rage? Or has man always been predisposed to throwing a fit when having to wait in line for one thing or another? Steel yourself for tales of the darkest parts of humanity as you read about people who were killed for cutting in line.

If you’re reading this and trying to pretend that you haven’t wanted to kill someone for cutting in line, you’re lying to yourself. Hopefully, like the rest of us, you’ve managed to tamp down the fury you experience every time you see such a heinous thing take place and use it later in an interpretive dance.

As you’ll soon find out, people have been killed, beaten, and generally assaulted while trying to buy things and use the restroom since the middle of the 20th century, and we’re willing to bet that it was a thing before then too. It’s awful that so many people are killed in line, and none of the people on this list who were murdered or savagely beaten deserved what happened. So the next time someone cuts in front of you in a line, just let it happen – or you’ll probably end up on a list like this.

What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever seen in line? Have you maimed someone to use the bathroom first? Set a man on fire for a lottery ticket? Have you killed for a primo parking spot? If so, confess your darkest line-related secrets in the comments.
True Stories of Fights That Broke Out in Lines,

Black Student Killed Trying to Use 'Whites-Only' Bathroom
In 1966, a black student in Tuskegee, AL who was just trying to use the bathroom was killed when a white gas station attendant shot him in the head as he was running away. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 made segregated bathrooms illegal, but some vigilantes still tried to extralegally enforce racist laws from the past. The murderer was only arrested after students from Tuskegee waged a protest. 
Hungry Man Kills Line Cutter
In 2006, Ziad Tayeh fatally knifed a 19-year-old who cut in front of him in line at the Halal Guys food cart on Sixth Avenue in New York. In a videotaped confession, Tayeh explained to the police that "[he] was hungry." Despite fleeing the scene, Tayeh was able to beat the murder wrap by claiming self-defense. 
Long Bathroom Line Leads to Violent Assault
Antonio Renardo Savoy was arrested at the unfortunately named Pusser's Caribbean Grille in Annapolis, VA in June 2016 after he smashed a bottle over another man's head while fighting in the line for the bathroom. He was charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault, and reckless endangerment. The kicker? The restaurant is located on Compromise Street.
Taco Truck Fight Ends in Death
In May 2016, a man who was waiting in line at a taco truck in Austin, TX got into an argument with some people who cut in front of him; that altercation was his last. After fighting with the group, one of them walked to their truck, grabbed a pistol, and shot the man several times. 

Thousands of People Miss Out on Housing for Fighting in Line
In May 2016, after hours of waiting in line for Section 8 housing in Portsmouth, VA, a few aggravated citizens started fighting in a crowd of about 3,000 people. Additional police had to be called in to force people to leave the area after the voucher line was shut down. 
Man Stabbed in Butt at McDonald's
In 2013, a woman at a Tampa, FL McDonald's became so enraged that a man yelled at her for cutting in the drive-thru line that she stabbed him.

After Mohammad Abukhder yelled at Rebecca Simmons for cutting the line, she got out of her car, stabbed the hood of Abukhder's car, and then stabbed him in the butt when he got out of the car to try and make her stay put until the police came. She was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and criminal mischief with property damage.
Man Waiting to Go to the Bathroom Is Sucker Punched
On May 7, 2016, a college student who was waiting in line for the men's room at Del Mar Gastro Lounge in St. Petersburg, FL got into an argument with a stranger about cutting in line, but the argument ended when the stranger walloped the student with two punches that ended up sending the kid to the hospital with a fractured skull.
Fight Breaks Out Between People Waiting for a Parking Spot
While sitting in a long parking line at the Houston Zoo, a woman captured footage of two other drivers getting physical over a parking spot in June 2016. The woman who caught the footage later told Click 2 Houston: "I think I saw more action out in the parking lot than the animals, the animals were just chilling."
Homeless Men Get into Fight over iPhone
In 2013, a group of homeless men who were promised pizza, beer, and cigarettes in exchange for waiting in line for the then-new iPhone got into a fight with Apple store employees after they were informed that the store was out of merchandise, meaning that they wouldn't receive payment. One man was placed on a 72-hour psychiatric hold for running into the street when police showed up on the scene. 
Young Mom Killed by Stray Bullet in Beef over Line Cutting
In 2011, Yaritza Pacheco, a 24-year-old mother from the Bronx, was killed by a stray bullet that was fired over some guy cutting in line at a bodega. The 19-year-old who shot Pacheco immediately threw his gun in a river and booked a one-way flight to the Dominican Republic, but was arrested at the airport

<![CDATA[15 Super Weird Things That Were Once Found in Toilets]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/weird-things-found-in-toilets/ashley-reign

Remember when you were a kid and couldn't help but wonder about the urban legends that said alligators and other scary animals could crawl out of the toilet and attack? Well your inner child ain’t seen nothing yet. When it comes to gross things found in toilets, these real life stories will have you checking the loo thoroughly before you go.
 

Just when you thought that toilet dangers were only limited to gross port-a-potty smells and the poor aim of the guy who used the stall before you, here comes a whole new list of terrifying true stories to populate your nightmares. This is a round up of the gross stuff found in toilets all over the world, as well as a few flushed items that actually turned out to be pretty fascinating.

From folks who were horrified to find random animals chilling in their toilet bowls to archeologists who accidentally unearthed centuries-old treasures, this is some bathroom humor (and horror) that you don't want to miss. Check out some of the weirdest stuff ever to be flushed down the pipes!


15 Super Weird Things That Were Once Found in Toilets,

A 16th Century Queen's Hairpin
Imagine the surprise of a team of French archaeologists, who were excavating an old communal toilet at Fontainbleu Palace to prepare the area for restoration, when they discovered a rare treasure within the depths of the toilet itself. A hairpin pulled from the old restroom turned out to belong to 16th century Queen Catherine de Medici, who was identified as its owner by the interlocking "C's" at its head.  
A Live Bomb from World War 2
When the police got a call to investigate a strange device discovered in an outdoor toilet in Stockport, England, they never suspected that it would turn out to be a live bomb from WW2. Houses in the area were evacuated and the bomb squad was called in to carefully remove the device, which then underwent a controlled explosion in a nearby park.

Most explosions in a bathroom are of the stinkier variety...



A Live Newborn Baby Girl
We've all heard horror stories of girls giving birth at prom and abandoning their babies in the restroom, but a student at a University in China took it a step further when she flushed her newborn daughter down the toilet and went back to her room to continue studying. The baby was heard crying by other students who alerted the authorities. The authorities rescued the newborn from the piping and arrest the mother.

 

A Puppy Who Survived Being Flushed by His Four-Year-Old Owner
Unfortunately for week-old cocker spaniel puppy Dyno, a toilet bowl looks an awful lot like a Jacuzzi to a four-year-old. The boy decided his puppy needed a bath and reasoned that a little more water with a flush couldn't hurt. But the poor little pooch was sucked down the pipe. Luckily, plumbers were able to locate the little dude with a snake camera and rescue him through a nearby manhole.

 

A HUUUUUUUUGE Snake
When an Australian man named Erik Rantzau discovered a three meter-long carpet python chilling in his toilet bowl, he decided that removal was a job best left to an expert. So he called in a professional snake wrangler to wrestle the beast into submission and take back his toilet bowl. 

An 18th Century Sex Toy
During the excavation of the latrine in what was believed to be an 18th century fencing school in Poland, archaeologists discovered a relic that was pretty excited to be found. The nearly 300-year-old dildo was in as good of a shape as ever. In its original form, it was made of leather and full of bristles. They just don't make 'em like the used to.
This Shark Who Was Chilling in the Toilet of a Public Park
When two Beaufort, South Carolina women discovered a shark in a public park restroom toilet, they did what any self respecting women would do: screamed their butts off. After the initial shock wore off, the ladies were able to regain enough composure to call authorities, who suspected the dead shark was placed in the toilet by pranksters.

This Super Embarrassed Guy
Upon hearing panicked screams coming from the inside of a port-a-potty in Cape Town in 2013, passers-by investigated only to discover a guy so stuck inside the toilet that it took rescue workers 40 minutes to get him out. Witnesses commented that the gentleman's bloodshot eyes, and his ability to become trapped in a port-a-potty in the first place, suggested he may have been high off his ass. "Duh," said literally everyone. 



A Squirrel Who Somehow Took a Wrong Turn
When a Winnipeg woman investigated a strange splashing sound in her bathroom one morning around 5am, she was stunned to find a distraught squirrel struggling to make his way out of the bowl. Luckily for the little guy, the quick thinking woman deposited him back out on her patio with a pair of BBQ tongs, but not before giving him a refreshing bath in the tub first. 



A Shit Load of Money... Literally
As it turns out, being the most honest janitor in the world has its perks. When Chamindu Amarsinghe discovered $93,000 in both the trash bins and flushed down the pipes of an Australian toilet in 2011, he did the right thing and called in police to investigate. When the authorities failed to explain the money's origins, however, the world's coolest judge ruled that the janitor could keep $76,000 while awarding the rest to the state.

<![CDATA[18 Bodies That Were Found YEARS After the Person Died]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/people-who-were-found-dead-years-after-they-died/jacob-shelton
It’s an understatement to say that people die every day. Unfortunately, some of those people slip through the cracks in one way or another and their bodies can go missing for incredible lengths of time. On this list are stories of people who died, only to have their dead body remain undiscovered for years. The sad truth about a lot of these decades-old corpses is that they could have been discovered sooner if the people had any friends or family to check in on them. It’s not a surprise that multiple bodies on this list were found in front of a television that was still pumping out entertainment. Open up an incognito browser and take a look at these bodies that were found YEARS after the person died.

<![CDATA[Horrible Things That Have Happened at 711]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/711-horror-stories/jacob-shelton
7-Eleven is truly one of the great equalizers in this world. Everyone, from lowly bike messengers to famous celebrities, has popped into the world’s most famous convenience store for a Slushee or some taquitos. But even hugely popular convenience stores have their downside. 7-11 stories take on every manner of crazy. From the expected armed robberies to crazy explosions, and even assaults with an axe, the bad things that happened at 7-Eleven will shock the Big Gulp out of your hands. You may never shop comfortably again after you read these 7-11 horror stories.

One of the biggest yikes factors that comes along with working at a 24-hour convenience store is that you know robberies are bound to happen. Most of the robberies that are included on this list end safely enough, but there are still some insane 7-11 deaths that have occurred in the middle of the store with very little reason. Even though some truly horrific things are on this list, there are still a few heroes on here that you can root for. Try to keep that in mind as your stroll down the aisle of the worst things that have ever happened in a 7-Eleven.

What horrible things have you witnessed while building the perfect nachos at a 7-Eleven? If you’ve got a story that tops anything on this list, we want to hear it.
Horrible Things That Have Happened at 711,

Sword Wielding Maniac Arrested Outside 7-11
In Hamilton, Ontario, a 29-year-old man was arrested outside the convenience store for waving a large samurai sword around and screaming that he was going to hurt someone. Ontario should thank its lucky stars that the guy didn't have a Hanzo sword. 
Clerks Strip and Assault Man Over Snickers Bar
After a man allegedly trying to steal a Snicker's bar, two 7-Eleven clerks in the Bronx stripped and savagely beat him. Video of the incident made its way online and the man sued the company for an unspecified amount. The lawsuit said, the “widespread dissemination of images showing [Golson] stripped almost naked have caused [him] to suffer severe humiliation, mental anguish and emotional distress from which he may never recover.” 
20-Year-Old Rapes a Woman in 7-11 Parking Lot
On New Year's Day 2016, a South Bend, Indiana man, who was already on the police's radar for a count of obstructing justice, robbed a 7-Eleven before raping the female clerk on duty and urinating in her mouth. The man turned himself in later that month. 
Shooting Victim Dies Outside of 7-11
A man who was shot through the torso in Anderson, California was dropped at a 7-Eleven parking lot by a mysterious green truck. Despite the efforts from good samaritans on the scene, the man died after being transported to a local hospital. 
Man Kills Clerk and Sets the Body on Fire
After Michael Russo was denied the purchase of alcohol without an ID, he flipped out and returned to the 7-Eleven just after three in the morning. He shot the 18-year-old clerk at point blank range before setting the boy on fire and burning down the store. 
Man Robs Store Before Raping Clerk
In 2015 a Buffalo, New York man robbed a 7-11 of its cash and some cigarettes before forcing the clerk into a closet, raping her, and then demanding the surveillance tapes. If it weren't for a delivery man who showed up as the assailant was escaping, he might have gotten away, but the rapist/burglar was caught one block from the store by the police. 
7-11 Australia Works Out a "Half Pay" Scan
In 2015, reports were released that showed 7-Eleven Australia trying to save money by paying their employees half of what they were owed. This means that a clerk who worked 40 hours a week would be paid an average of $12 per hour rather than their deserved $24.69 per hour. The scam depended on the franchise owner doctoring time cards to make it seem that their employees only worked for half the time they actually put in. 
SUV Rams Through 7-11
In the Philippines, two people were injured when the driver of an SUV lost control and smashed through the building. Maybe he was just excited about Free Slurpee Day.  
Group of Friends Destroy a 7-11 With a Hammer
In story that sounds like it's straight out of The Purge, a group of friends completely destroyed the inside of a Chicago 7-Eleven before brutally attacking a fellow public transit passenger with a hammer, giving them permanent vision loss. The six friends were arrested shortly afterwards. 
Pennsylvania 7-11 Robbed Again and Again
The 7-Eleven in Abington, Pennsylvania just can't catch a break. In just a few weeks in early 2016, the store has been the site of two armed robberies. In the first, a clerk was shot by an assailant, and the second time a different robber made off with an unknown amount of money.

<![CDATA[Children's Entertainers Who Are Also Perverts]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/kids-entertainers-who-are-perverts/jacob-shelton
In a perfect world, child entertainers would be normal people who only had a desire to facilitate a good time. But unfortunately we live in a world where monsters lurk around every corner, and no one is safe. We’ve all heard about creepy children's show host Jimmy Savile and his pedophile sex ring in Britain, but he’s not the only boogeyman stalking the children of the world. There are so many kid's entertainers who are perverts that it makes you never want to send your kid to a birthday party, or even let them watch television again. This list goes to a very dark place, looking at children’s entertainers who are also perverts.

A few of the guys on this list of pervert children entertainers are just sort of creepy, or they have weird sexual predilections that bleed into their work, but most of the stories here read like an episode of Law & Order: SVU. The entertainers cataloged here range from famous musicians to creeps in face paint that you’ve never heard of, but they’ve all got something twisted inside their brains that makes them unsuitable to be around children. The saddest part about these stories is that they just scratch the iceberg; there is seemingly no end to the horror stories to be found in the world of child entertainment. By the time you finish reading this list of perverted children’s entertainers you’ll never look at a balloon animal the same way again.
Children's Entertainers Who Are Also Perverts,

Jimmy Savile
Guilty Of: Committing sexual abuse against minors, running a child sex ring.

Who Is This Guy?
Jimmy Savile was pretty much the most famous television presenter in England throughout the second half of the 20th century, and at the time of his death in 2011 he'd been knighted, given an honorary green beret, and received multiple honorary doctorates for his charitable work. If there was a TV show on BBC, he probably hosted it at some point.

What's His Story?
Savile was the worst of the worst. There were rumblings of his pedophiliac nature dating back to 1958, but the police - and the British government - looked the other way until after his death, when a documentary about his dark side was released.


Paul Reubens
Guilty Of: Indecent exposure.

Who Is This Guy?
For younger readers, Paul Reubens is the man behind Pee Wee Herman. At the time of his arrest, in 1991, he was beloved by weird kids and their parents everywhere, and he's made a full recovery since his arrest. 

What's His Story?
While visiting his family in Sarasota, FL, Reubens stopped off at an adult movie theater. He was arrested on his way out, as detectives claimed they saw him masturbating in the theater. To make matters worse, he told the arresting officer that he would perform a children's benefit if he could make the arrest go away.

Peter Yarrow
Guilty Of: Taking "improper liberties" with a 14 year old.

Who Is This Guy?
Peter Yarrow is the Peter in Peter, Paul and Mary, and the guy who wrote "Puff (The Magic Dragon)," a song beloved by children and 19 year olds who say "duuuuuuude" everywhere. He also wrote the children's book, It's Raining, It's Pouring.

What's His Story?
In 1970 Yarrow was convicted of taking "improper liberties" with a 14-year-old girl who went to his hotel room after a show seeking an autograph. Yarrow served three months in jail, but was pardoned by Jimmy Carter in 1981.

Roald Dahl
Guilty Of: Writing super creepy erotic fiction.

Who Is This Guy?
You know Roald Dahl as the author of beloved children's tales like Charlie and the Chocolate FactoryThe Witches, and Matilda - but he also had a dark side.

What's His Story?
It's not that weird that Roald Dahl wrote erotic fiction. But the story "Bitch," from his collection Switch Bitch, is super pervy. It details a character's plan to embarrass the President of the United States by dosing him with a pheromone that would send him into a lustful frenzy on live television. Instead, the character accidentally gets dosed and ends up having sex with some random woman.

Rod Hull

Guilty Of: Molestation with a puppet.

Who Is This Guy?
Rod Hull was a television presenter who had an emu puppet sidekick. Hull and the puppet appeared on shows like Emu's Broadcasting Company, and EMU TV throughout the '70s and '80s. He died in 1999 after he fell off his roof while adjusting a television antenna. 

What's His Story?
In Eric Bristow's autobiography, The Crafty Cockney, Bristow claims that Hull used his emu puppet to get creepy with people"He used the puppet to feel up women and stick his hand between people's legs. It was out of order."


Rolf Harris

Guilty Of: Indecent assault against girls ranging in age from 13 to 16.

Who Is This Guy?
Rolf Harris wrote novelty songs like "Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport," and "Jake the Peg." He was a HUGE deal in Australia throughout his career, and he even joined The Wiggles on tour for a while.

What's His Story?
Harris was first investigated after the Jimmy Savile investigation went public. He managed to come out of that fairly clean, but was investigated again in 2014 after stories of alleged assaults that occurred between the '60s and '80s surfaced. According to prosecutors, Harris "groomed and dehumanized" his victims.


Magic Mark
Guilty Of: Smoking meth and distributing child pornography.

Who Is This Guy?  
Magic Mark is actually Mark Whincup, a children's entertainer from North Wales who also lectured children about the harmful effects of drugs.  

What's His Story?  
In 2015 the police discovered 121 pornographic images and 748 pornographic films, together with 10 “extreme” indecent images involving animals on computer equipment in the attic of Whincup's home. He also had an S&M dungeon and a Skype-ready camera.

Billy Wand

Guilty Of: Possessing indecent images of children on his computer.

Who's This Guy?
Kevin Hart (not that one) is a balloon animal artist, or as he puts it, a "Balloonatic" from England, who goes by the moniker Billy Wand. His slogan is “Spreading smiles one ­balloon at a time,” which is creepy even without all the other stuff. 

What's His Story?
Hart had to sign up for the sex offender's registry in 2008, after police found indecent images of children on his computer. After that debacle he moved from Surrey to Weymouth, Dorset where he continues to be a balloonatic to this day.


K.P. Bath
Guilty Of: Possessing child pornography. 

Who Is This Guy?
K.P. Bath is the author of two well-received children's books, The Secret of Castle Cant and Escape from Castle Cant. He had two more books slated for release before the allegations came to light.

What's His Story?
In 2010, pretty much out of nowhere, rising the children's book author was sentenced to six years in prison for possessing child pornography and trading some of the photos with out of state "collectors." His only statement about the case was that he felt government prosecutors exercised too much power.
Ron Brown

Guilty Of: Having a library of child pornography, and admitting to want to cook and eat a child. 

Who Is This Guy?
Ron Brown was a puppeteer who was very active in his local church. Not only did he drive children to and from services in his van, but he also put on puppet shows for the congregation.

What's His Story?
In 2013, Brown was busted after an Internet chat he was having with another pedophile/cannibalism enthusiast popped up on the FBI's radar. After he was arrested, investigators found boys' underwear and a blowup doll dressed in children's clothes in his home. Brown received 20 years in federal prison and a lifetime of probation.

<![CDATA[The Best TV Villains of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-tv-villains-of-all-time
The best TV villains of all time rank among some of the greatest TV characters of all time as well as some of the creepiest TV characters ever. While some TV villains exist to make the lead characters appear more heroic, some of them are just plain old, nasty jerks. Regardless of their motivations, the top TV bad guys make us want to bust into the TV and kick some butt, fictional style.

Many of TV's greatest greatest villains didn't start that way; some of these men and women started out as virtuous people who took a skid into the darker ways of the world. Think of Breaking Bad's Gustavo Fring, a legitimate business man turned meth trafficking d-bag. Or Dexter Morgan who started out killing only bad guys and then went and got tangled up with killing people as a CYA offensive action. Of course, there's also people like Game of Throne's Joffrey Baratheon and The Simpsons' C. Montgomery Burns who seem to get off on tormenting people. They are the worst kind of awesome bad guys.

Who is the best bad guy on TV? What television shows have the greatest TV villains?  This best television villains list has all the top TV villains in one place for you to vote on. If your favorite TV villain isn't on the list of the greatest TV villains, make sure to add them so other voters get to hate them as much as you do.
The Best TV Villains of All Time,

Cersei Baratheon

Joffrey Baratheon

Mr. Burns

Tywin Lannister

Benjamin Linus

Lilith
Supernatural
Lex Luthor

Crowley

The Joker

The Governor

<![CDATA[Shocking Discoveries of Mysterious Body Parts]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/body-parts-that-were-found-and-never-explained/christopher-shultz
It's a headline that's all too common: Body parts found in everyday common places, like trash cans, rivers, lakes, in parks, and on trails. It's probably one of the most gruesome things a citizen or police officer can discover, and it happens quite a lot. There are even a few unsolved mysteries with body parts playing an integral role to the crime, the biggest perhaps being all the unidentified remains recovered after the September 11th attacks in New York City. Here are 10 cases—both solved and unsolved—of body parts turning up in mysterious circumstances.
Shocking Discoveries of Mysterious Body Parts,

British Columbia Plagued by Severed Feet
Since 2007, a rash of severed feet clad in running shoes began washing ashore in British Columbia, Canada. Medical examiners do not suspect foul play in these cases, and many of the feet have been positively identified. Even still, just how exactly these feet ended up in the ocean remains a mystery, as does why the feet began appearing so frequently in 2007.
Dismembered Remains Wash Up in Bangkok
Several dismembered body parts washed up in Bangkok's Chao Phraya River in February 2016. Investigators eventually identified the remains as belonging to David Bernat, a 40-year-old Spanish man who had been tortured and murdered in January of that year. Police believe the killer to be fellow Spaniard Artur Segarra Princep, though at the time of this writing, Princep would not confess and plead not-guilty.
Over 1,100 9/11 Remains Unidentified
After the horrendous attacks in New York City on September 11, 2001, 1,115 partial remains were discovered in the rubble and areas surrounding the World Trade Center. These bone fragments and body parts were sadly never identified. In May 2014, the city of New York held a ceremony, whereby the remains were laid to rest beneath the 9/11 memorial. This sparked some controversy among residents whose loved ones had perished in the attacks and were never discovered.
Hands, Feet, and Head of Missing Child Recovered
In September 2015, the badly decomposed hands, feet, and head of a small child were discovered floating in a lagoon in Chicago's Garfield Park. They were eventually identified as belonging to Kyrian Knox, a two year old who had been missing for several weeks prior to the remains being recovered. Although Knox was identified, police hit a dead-end when friends of the family refused to cooperate with the investigation.
Head Found Near Hollywood Sign
In January 2012, two women walking their dogs in Bronson Canyon, near the Hollywood sign, discovered the severed head, hands, and feet of a man who was later identified as 66-year-old Hervey Medellin. The case remained cold until 2014, when the police arrested Gabriel Campos-Martinez in connection with Medellin's murder.  

It was revealed that Campos-Martinez had been Medellin's live-in boyfriend for several years. It wasn't clear why Campos-Martinez murdered and dismembered Medellin, though investigators did discover a recent search term on a computer found in the couple's apartment: "Butcher a Human Carcass for Human Consumption."  

The rest of Medellin's body, as well as the murder weapon and dismemberment tools, were never discovered.

San Francisco Suitcase Body Parts
Residents of San Francisco, CA and investigators were shocked by the discovery of a dismembered body inside a suitcase in January 2015. Other partial remains were discovered in a nearby trashcan. The dismembered body was eventually identified, but the primary suspect in the case passed away under equally mysterious circumstances in February of that year.
A Possible Victim of the Black Market Body Part Trade
In rural Pennsylvania, a child walking home through the woods made a gruesome discovery on December 12, 2014: the embalmed, severed head of a middle-aged woman. Even more disturbing, the woman's eyes had been replaced with red rubber balls. Even though police received numerous leads, the woman's identity was never established. Many believe her to be the victim of a black market body parts trade that is "pretty expansive," according to Beaver County District Attorney Anthony Berosh.
Fresh Parts Dumped in Seattle Recycling Bin
In early April 2016, a resident of the Central District neighborhood in Seattle, WA discovered body parts from an adult, including a foot, in his recycling bin. Investigators said the parts were "fresh" and that it was clear they were dumped there from another location.

Initially believed to have come from a man, the remains were later linked to Ingrid Marie Lyne, a woman from the suburb of Renton who was murdered and dismembered by a man she met online.
Severed Head Found in Trash Bag
A Memphis, TN man was arrested on charges of second degree murder and "abuse of a corpse" in September 2014 after his garbage ripped open to reveal a severed human head. The man, Michael Wilson, Jr., was standing in his backyard with Lacedric Ruffin, who intended to haul away some of Wilson's old junk. If the bag had not ripped open, the head likely would have made it all the way to the town dump.  

Police eventually found more remains inside Wilson's home. The body was later determined to be his roommate's.
Dismembered Remains Found in Bizarre Murder-Suicide
A man discovered three suitcases bearing the dismembered remains of a 70-year-old Austrian woman in January 2016. The suitcases were pulled from the Traunsee lake in Linz, Austria. The woman's hands and feet were in one bag, her torso in another, and her head in a third.

Her severed head was encased in concrete and attached to the hand of her husband, who had also drowned to death in the lake. It was ultimately determined that the woman died of strangulation, and it was believed the man killed her, dismembered her, and killed himself while disposing of the remains.
