Times are hard, but after reading about this, you might be thankful that you have a roof over your head, not to mention a job to go to in the morning. Apparently, struggling Britons have already placed an offer on Facebook to sell their kidneys. Yes sir, those who are in dire straits have actually turned to social network Facebook as a medium of advertisement for their organs, with a price set up to £30,000 a pop – without taking into consideration the various medical and legal risks involved. This is no doubt an offence under the Human Tissue Act to buy or even advertise organs for sale in the UK, which means whoever does this on Facebook could be looking at the possibility of spending some time in the slammer.
What’s it with stun guns or tasers being stashed away silently these days? Apparently, what you see above is not really an actual iPhone, but rather, it is a conversion of Apple’s famous smartphone that comes with a built-in stun gun that dispenses with a shock to the tune of 50,000 volts – huge enough to actually cause a heart attack. This particular stun gun was discovered by the police after they searched a 14-year-old in Manchester city center. Other than this unique and dangerous weapon, the boy was also found to have a knife.
According to Sgt. Phil Marsh, “It has the appearance of a black iPhone but the volume buttons are more prominent. The top has a silver strip with two points from which the current is discharged. The volume buttons appear to activate the device. People need to be aware that possession of them is an offence under the Firearms Act.”
Apparently, this particular device can be purchased for a mere £15 over on the internet, where it has been specially marketed as personal protection devices. What do you think of this unique design for a stun gun? Frankly, I am not surprised that we have not seen a version with the Samsung Galaxy S4 design to date.
