‘Made to feel uncomfortable…Alive!’ Senior scares off thieves with walker gun, Chimps lose legal battle for ‘personhood’

Paul Rosolie.

Good Day World!

Life is full of disappointments, but we still have to soldier on.

For example:

On Sunday night, Discovery aired the highly anticipated "Eaten Alive" special, in which conservationist and filmmaker Paul Rosolie went head first into the jaws of a 20-foot anaconda — or at least that's what viewers were led to believe would happen.

Maybe the show should have been called "Rolling Around in the Mud Alive," "Constricted Alive" or "Made to Feel Really Uncomfortable … Alive!"

By the end of the two-hour event, one thing was clear: Rosolie, outfitted in a compression suit covered in a generous coating of pig blood, did convince the anaconda to go after him — but he was by no means eaten, alive or otherwise.

Just imagine the disappointment some thieves felt when they tried to break into the home of a A 68-year-old Gastonia man.

Joseph Sapienza told The Gaston Gazette (http://bit.ly/1vx3JpO ) that he scared off two men in ski masks trying to break in his home with his gun that he keep on his walker. He flipped on a light, yelled he was armed and threw open the door.

Afterwards he taped a note to his door saying if they try to break in his house again, he will be waiting on them!

His message was loud and clear. You rock Mr. Sapienza!

What a disappointment for Chimps worldwide!

In the first case of its kind, a New York appeals court rejected on Thursday an animal rights advocate's bid to extend "legal personhood" to chimpanzees, saying the primates are incapable of bearing the responsibilities that come with having legal rights.

The case is Nonhuman Rights Project v. Lavery, New York State Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Third Department, No. 518336.
