Human Fetus Found In Trash Aboard Continental Airlines

HOUSTON: A human fetus was found on a Continental airlines flight that landed at Bush Intercontinental Airport. And right now, the FBI is involved, trying to find out what happened.

Investigators say the flight was from New York to Houston late Sunday afternoon. The FBI says a cleaning crew found the fetus in the trash in a bathroom on Flight 433 out of New York's LaGuardia airport.

The Continental airlines plane was parked at gate 18, which is located at the far end of the building. The plane landed at about 4:45pm Sunday at Bush Airport. Passengers got off the plane.

An hour passed before the person cleaning the bathroom made the discovery inside a trash bag in that plane's bathroom. Investigators say the child was not a full term baby, that it was a fetus. They cannot say how far along that fetus might have been in its development.

A teacher in Orlando FL has been put on paid leave while officials investigate why a student urinated in a lunch box during her class.

The Meadowbrook Middle School student hid behind a bookcase during class and urinated in a lunch box claims the Orange County school official.

Statements by students in the class say that the boy asked to go to the restroom on Thursday, the teacher, Jameeka Chambers told him to hold it or use her lunch box.

The boy took the lunch box, hid behind a bookcase urinated in it and handed it back to her.

I laughed when i read this because imagine a world that took everything literally, the teacher did make it an option. You be the judge.

Thief Steals Boat, Police Follow Water Trail To His House

FREMONT -- The owner of a stolen boat and police followed a trail of water that had spilled out of the back end of the 19 footer, leading them to the suspects house. Now we all have heard of Hansel and Gretal, but thats only when you want to be found dumb-ass. On top of that, the man that jacked the boat, Jeffrey Powell, had been a childhood friend of Daryle Duffy, the man whom got his boat jacked. Shoehead fact #1, when stealing an item, don't leave a trail leading to your house where the stoled goods are held.

NEWS: DJ Clark Kent Presents Bill Cosby With a Pair of Black History Month Nike Air Force 1s

Bill Cosby broke all the rules for Black actors on TV with "I Spy" and kept on breaking them with shows like "Fat Albert" and "The Cosby Show". The Cosby show still runs on Nick @ Nite, which by the way i still watch and love. Its been 15 years since the last episode, but Cosby still works to make a difference through activism. Cosby urges the Black community to focus more on education and self respect, rather than sports and fashion. This article is a great read so you shoeheads should head over to Kixandthecity and check it out, but come back, lol.

HOW TO: Design Your Own Sneakers

When i came across this guide i just had to share it with you shoeheads. Trust these pages because this is truely the Bile of Designing Sneakers in which no one does it better than sneakerfreaker. Like always it provides you with step by step writing and a glossy display of images. Check it out and let me know what you think.


HOW TO: Scrub Your Kicks And Keep Em Clean!

So you wanna know how to keep your kicks mad shinny huh? Well me being OCD about my sneakers, i have really developed a ritual and process to cleaning shoes. Just like my car, i have to have them perfectly clean or i just hate rocking em. I'm gonna lay out for you, two ways in which you can attack this cleaning problem. First, if you have a little cheddah in your pocket, i will let you know the best chemicles in the business to get the job done. If you spend most your money on sneakers like me, then i got a home cleaning kit for those with "smaller" budgets too, so lets get started.


If you want to be high class about cleaning your shoes then you will need to own the kit from Jason Markk. The kit contains everything you need to keep your kicks in tip-top shape, plus the "formula" is gentle for your sneakers. If your rocking suede or knubuck, I recommend using TANA: Suede & Knubuck Shampoo, this stuff is great at bringing life back to your material. Don't forget that just like your skin, when you scrub down suede or knubuck, you must moisturize to bring back the color. I recommend using TANA Rain guard.


Now if you got bad habits and like to spend your cash else where, this is a cleaning guide for under $10, and trust me it works almost as well as the "big boys" kits. First head to your local shoe shop and get a simple cleaning formula for sneakers. On your way home stop off at the grocery store, get a tooth-brush, and a MR Clean Magic Eraser, go home. The Magic Eraser and just water works well with light dirt and even minor scuffs. If you have some heavier grit, try using the shoe cleaner but use the tooth-brush you picked up. The Scrubs that come with the cleaners are very hard plastic and are brutal for your sneakers. If your sneaks haven't been cleaned in a great while, combine the tooth-brush and Magic Eraser with the cleaning solution, this should get everything off the shoe. If this fails, then dude i have no clue what you been steppin in. If your looking to get in to the small tiny nooks all over your sneaker, look no further than a tooth-pick, very cheap and works really well.

So there you go shoeheads, no more excuses for dirty kicks!
