The linked article is a blurb so we don't find out if the heads were frozen or just in crates with bubble wrap or something.

There is a Google ad for Chicago dermatology at the linked page.

Ponder this, bitches: no matter how bad you think you have it, there are people that don't have a head, and do you hear them complaining?

I didn't think so.

Yes because severing a human head from its body is so easily accomplished.

The Tribune has it as their lead wire story. The shipment came from Rome and was marked research but the final destination was unclear and the shipper has yet to come forward...

Im with R42, I was born and raised on the North Side. Live in Portland now. When I went back to see family over the holiday, the first thing I heard in OHare was some guy with one of those loud-mouth Chicago accents. Everyone there is just rude.

yes. can only access thread in my faves or the side bar.

by Anonymousreply 6701/19/2013

Sorry to post this here, but DL has badly malfunctioned.

I can't see any new threads or any new posts to extant threads no matter what is tried. I wound up here by clicking on the left column of bold "featured" threads.

In the past, clicking on "Data Lounge" from my browser would open the DL site, current threads would "self populate" in the center, and current thread titles would appear underlined in the right-hand column. Now nothing will happen in either column.

I'm a former I.T. guy and none of my self-help efforts have worked. Have tried using the only "help" function that's available without results.

Does one have to be a paying member to access further help functions and/or obtain assistance from the DL webmaster?

Any help will be greatly appreciated; please reply in this thread.

Thanks in advance!
