Woman Seeking Man Who Knocked Her Up In The Bathroom At Megadeth/Motorhead Show On Craigslist
I┬'d like to ask you a few questions, UPROXX readers.

1. Did you recently attend a Megadeth/Motorhead show in Chicago?

2. While there did you, by chance, happen to make the acquaintance of a lady with ┬"blue hair┬" wearing a ┬"silver tube top, fishnets┬" and ┬"knee high black biker boots?┬"

3. Did you happen to ┬"raw dog┬" with this nice lady in the bathroom during the show?

If the answer to all of these questions is ┬"yes,┬" then you┬'ve got a baby on the way, my friend. Congrats!

The Craigslist ad in which the blue-haired, black biker boot-wearing lass seeks her paramour has sadly been flagged for removal, but Fuse caught it before it was taken down.

In a post entitled, ┬"Did we hook up at the Megadeth/Motorhead concert? ┬-- w4m ┬-- 28 (Aragon Ballroom),┬" an anonymous woman wrote the following post, which is reproduced here in its entirety:

┬"Me: Blue hair, silver tube top, fishnets, Knee high black biker boots.
You: Red mohawk, black pentagram gauges, viper piercings.

I was grinding on you in the pit, then we went to the bathroom, and got f***ed up. You had a nice c**k and I was wasted so I let [you] raw dog it in the stall. You were really good and you had to gag me so I would make too much noise.

Anyway I┬'m pregnant. It┬'s yours. contact me if you want to be part of your child┬'s life.┬"

If you think this may be you, you can email your now-knocked-up fling at: c9kpp-2948959310@pers.craigslist.org

A dozen Secret Service agents accused of misconduct
Twelve Secret Service agents with President Obama at an international meeting have been relieved of duty because of allegations of misconduct. The AyPee received an anonymous tip that the misconduct involved prostitutes in Cartagena, the site of the Summit of the Americas. A Secret Service spokesman would neither confirm nor deny the allegation.

Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan did not confirm that prostitution was involved, saying only that there had been "allegations of misconduct" made against Secret Service personnel. He said the allegations of misconduct were related to activity before the president's arrival Friday night.

#5  Zerohedge's comment: while he may be far more successful in generating jobs in Latin America than domestically, even those jobs have proven to be quite transitory, just like virtually all quickie temp jobs "created or saved" in the US in the past several years. Furthermore, just like in the US, we doubt that the incremental wealth benefits will trickle down to the local population. After all, unlike in the US, endogenous Colombian liquidity may be abundant everywhere but certainly not at the central bank

Man in Germany Calls Police Over Sex-Mad Date
[An Nahar] A desperate man in Munich fled onto a balcony and called police for protection after his insatiable companion for a one-night stand refused to let him leave her flat, police said Thursday.

The 43-year-old man had met a woman four years his senior in a bar in the southern German city on Monday and she took him back to her apartment for sex, a police spokesman said in a statement.

"There they had sexual intercourse several times," the spokesman said.

"When the 47-year-old wanted even more, her partner said no."

The man then attempted to leave the apartment but the woman prevented him from escaping and demanded he sleep with her again.

"Because the 43-year-old saw no other alternative, he complied with the woman's wishes another few times so he could finally leave the apartment," the spokesman said.

"But when she continued to refuse and demanded even more sex from him, he fled to the balcony and alerted the police."

The woman "then tried to talk the dispatched officers into similar activity but was unsuccessful".

She is now facing possible charges of sexual assault and illegal restraint.

#6  there was a line in the obit that said "brother Stephen Blanchard (Susan)" what does the Susan mean? Susan is significant other to Stephen, relationship not otherwise specified. Common usage in obits, perhaps to save money on per-word billing.

China-Japan-Koreas
Chinese aircraft approaches Japanese destroyer in E. China Sea
TOKYO (Kyodo) -- A Chinese fixed-wing aircraft on Thursday approached a Japanese destroyer that was patrolling near the median line that ostensibly separates the two countries' exclusive economic zones in the East China Sea, immediately triggering a protest from Tokyo.

The plane, marked with the flag of China and Chinese characters indicating its affiliation with the State Oceanic Administration, at one point approached as near as 50 meters to the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force destroyer Asayuki at around 12:10 p.m. on Thursday in the area where the two countries' 200-nautical-mile EEZs overlap.

The Japanese Foreign Ministry urged Beijing not to repeat such a flight, which it described as "a dangerous act."

The Joint Staff Office of the Japanese Defense Ministry said the Chinese aircraft approached the MSDF destroyer in the Japanese EEZ near the Chunxiao gas field, known as Shirakaba in Japan. The two countries are at odds over gas development in the area. Beijing does not recognize the median line and claims its EEZ stretches further to the edge of the continental shelf, nearer Okinawa Prefecture.

The Asayuki was mobilized for routine patrol activities and not for an emergency response in the event North Korea goes ahead with its planned rocket launch, which is widely suspected to be a covert test of a long-range ballistic missile, according to the office.

Meanwhile, two Russian surveillance planes flew over the Sea of Japan and the East China Sea between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Thursday, prompting Japan's Air Self-Defense Force to scramble jets to guard against an airspace incursion. The Defense Ministry said the Tu-142 aircraft did not violate Japan's airspace but repeatedly flew around over the East China Sea north of Miyako Island in Okinawa Prefecture.

The ministry suspects the Russian planes were collecting data on the Japanese and U.S. response to the planned rocket launch by North Korea, which involves the deployment of Aegis destroyers and ground-based radar by Japan and the United States.

#2  According to Wikipedia, the Asayuki has two Phalanx CIWS. At 50 meters, they would make mincemeat out of any plane flying by.

#3  In the South China Sea, the PHIL + CHINA had repor withdrew their protests ala disputed Scarborough Shoal, but only one CG Warship/Gunboat apiece, + pullout by 3 of 8 Chin Fishing Boats.

AFAIK that leaves two armed Chinese Maritime Surveillance Gunboats [converted PLAN Destroyers?]versus one PHIL Coast Guard Search-N-Rescue vessel???

Bo Xilai's son 'escorted from his home near Harvard university by US officials'
The son of the Chinese power couple embroiled in the scandal over British businessman Neil Heywood's death was escorted from his home by US officials, as experts said he could obtain asylum in America.

Bo Guagua, the Harrow- and Oxford-educated son of Bo Xilai, was slipped out of his luxury flat near Harvard University late on Thursday night, in a pre-arranged pick-up by law-enforcement officers. Wearing a dark jacket and pulling a roller suitcase, the 24-year-old, who was preparing for final exams of a postgraduate degree, was driven away in a dark SUV by a besuited officer wearing a badge.

"He did not look frightened, but he seemed anxious to go with them," a source told The Daily Telegraph. "He had clearly been expecting it".
People who grow up in police states usually do learn to expect the knock at the door...
Mr Bo was accompanied by a female friend.

Speculation was mounting that the younger Mr Bo may have sought protection from American authorities.
He's in America already. From what does he need protection?
The FBI's Boston office declined to say if the man was one of their agents. It is understood that he was not from the local or university police departments.

He was picked up at about 10pm on Thursday, after his female friend told the doorman to expect a visitor and gave him an electronic key fob to let him into the underground car park. She is believed to have left later in Mr Bo's Porsche, after collecting more luggage.
Oh, we need details on this woman...

India-Pakistan
Around 112,000 voters fraudulently registered in┬ Balochistan
[Dawn] Provincial Election Commissioner Sonu Khan Baloch on Friday revealed that around 112,000 voters of Karachi have been fraudulently registered in Balochistan, DawnNews reported.
That's all? As the noted philosopher R. Ricardo once said: "I dun blivit."
Pooh. If they aren't dead, it's a Chicago suburb on a bad day.
"We are taking steps to rectify the errors," Khan assured.

Election commissioner said that compiling the list of 85 million eligible voters could have possibility of errors.

Khan urged the political parties to cooperate in this regard rather than being critical.

Earlier Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had lodged a protest outside the provincial election commission urging the commission to immediately prepare new voter lists removing the irregularities in the present lists.
