In South Korea, “sannakji” is a dish that involves eating live octopus. The octopus is cut into small pieces and served immediately while its tentacles are still moving. The appeal lies in the fresh taste and the sensation of the tentacles moving in the mouth. However, it is not without risks, as the suction cups can pose a choking hazard​.

In Japan, “ikizukuri” is a method of preparing fish while it is still alive. The fish is sliced into sashimi but kept alive so that diners can see its heart still beating. This dish is valued for its freshness and the experience it provides. Similarly, in China, “yin yang fish” involves deep-frying the body of the fish while keeping its head alive, creating a striking contrast​.

In Japan, live frog sashimi is a dish where the frog is served live before being quickly prepared.

The heart is consumed while it is still beating, for a fresh and chewy texture that enthusiasts appreciate. This practice is highly controversial and has faced criticism for its cruelty​.

“Drunken shrimp” is a popular dish in parts of China. Live shrimp are immersed in a strong liquor that stuns them, making them easier to eat while they are still alive.

This is because of the three squeaks the mice will make during the meal: the first when they are picked up, the second when they are dipped, and the third when the diner bites down.

This practice is less common but still exists in some traditional settings. It is believed to be a way to obtain health benefits, though it is widely regarded as highly controversial.

In Thailand and other parts of Southeast Asia, live insects like ants and beetles are consumed.

Emily Ratajkowski applauds young divorcees for embracing independence over ‘married fantasy’

A couple may have just broken the record for one of the most short-lived marriages, lasting just three minutes Reports claim that the couple from Kuwait called it quits when the groom mocked his bride as they were pronounced husband and wife, who he allegedly called ‘stupid’ for tripping up…Click Here To Continue Reading>> …Click Here To Continue Reading>>

 

Subsequently, they didn’t even make it out of the wedding ceremony as newlyweds.

The bizarre story soon surfaced on X/Twitter, with one person writing: “I went to a wedding where the groom spent his speech making fun of his wife like it was some kind of roast, as did her father. She should have done what this woman did.”

Another simply called the (short) series of events “unbelievable”.

It comes after model, author and podcast host Emily Ratajkowski reclaimed the stigma around divorce and rebranded it “chic”.

“So, it seems that a lot of young ladies are getting divorced before they turn 30,” EmRata said. “As someone who got married at 26, has been separated for a little over a year [at] 32, I have to tell you, I don’t think there’s anything better,” she added, referencing her split from Sebastian Bear-McClard.

She went on to describe being in your twenties as being “the trenches,” before adding: “There is nothing better than being in your 30s, still being hot, maybe having a little bit of your own money, figuring out what you want to do with your life [and] everything, and having tried that marriage fantasy and realising that it’s maybe not all it’s cracked up to be.”

They said it was a meth lab, but ‘they were cooking child in the bedroom’!

Published

Authorities said that the responding officers were called out to a mobile home on reports that a meth lab was operating inside. But, unfortunately, when the officers arrived, they found something far worse cooking in the bedroom. Now, both parents are going away for a very long time.

Per reports, both parents, Kathlen and Lucas, had been holed up inside for days, with one room of the mobile house transformed into an oven — until it became too hot to ignore…Click Here To Continue Reading>> …Click Here To Continue Reading>>

The woman, who happened to be pregnant when cops were called to her home, had been up for 38 hours with her man on a meth-making and taking bender.

She mentioned that she heard a noise from the other room of the small home and thought, at one point, about checking on it, but her drugs were too important to take a few steps away from them. After the sounds stopped, she finally opened the door to the room and found her 2-year-old son, Braydon, ‘had been cooked to death from the space heater’ that she left on for him.

The parents thought that locking the child in the room with a space heater on high for almost two days was enough to keep him comfortable so they could do their drugs. The heater didn’t have a thermostat on it that would allow it to shut off when it got too hot, ultimately making an oven out of the room.

To make matters worse, officers not only found that the trailer house of horrors had been condemned and had f-ces and filth everywhere, but also that the child was severely malnourished after not being fed for days. Disturbingly, if the heat didn’t kill him, the starvation probably would have. READ FULL STORY HERE>>>CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING>>>

According to FOX News, this isn’t the pregnant mom’s first run-in with the law. In fact, she hadn’t even fully resolved her child endangerment charge from when she was pulled over for driving under the influence with a kid in tow when she caused the death of her son.

She and her parents faced 20 years to life for abuse or neglect of a child resulting in death, topped off with an additional drug charge. Both parents were sentenced to 21 years in prison for their role in the death of their 2-year-old son, who was left in a hot room for 38 hours.

Dear readers, we are republishing this story amid recent reports that child abuse has surged in America during the pandemic.
