    Dr. Tressie Montene Duffy, 44, a West Virginia weight loss consultant who lost her license after she forced a female co-worker to “motorboat” her surgically enlarged breasts.

    Two Jet Airways pilots, who were suspended after their plane carrying 280 passengers plunged 5,000 feet while the pilot in command was busy on her iPad.

    But the captain was resting and the co-pilot, who was meant to be in charge, didn’t notice the message.

    The app kindly responded by asking, “What kind of place are you looking for?” and then offered him four ideal places, including metal foundries, dumps, swamps, and reservoirs.
    Police say Bravo’s iPhone shows him using the flashlight function around the same time he buried the body and the location data recorded on it doesn’t mesh with his account of the evening.


OKAY, ONE MORE .....
