First of all, I don’t understand why people behind bars (either prison or mental health facilities) are able to get married anyway; I’m a gay person who has still not been granted that freedom despite the fact that I have no criminal record. This, is unfuckingfair. Yet, this man, who murders his ex-girlfriend (mother of five children) and eats parts of her body, is able to, possibly, have the choice to marry another woman who has committed an equally heinous crime.
Isakin Jonsson, 33, has asked human vampire Michelle Gustafsson, 23, to join him in unholy matrimony in a move that has shocked the country.
He killed mother-of-five Helle Christensen – his girlfriend at the time – by cutting her head off, eating parts of her body and then boasting about it on the Internet.
Shortly after Gustafsson stabbed the single father and drank his blood, she posted a photo on her FaceBook with blood dripping from her lips, holding a power saw and a knife.
The caption read: ‘I want to cut the throats of people on the subway.’
Both of these freaks are being held at the same institution, high-security Karsuddens psychiatric facility near Katrineholm, and they are expected to be here for the rest of their lives.
The couple, still believe that they may be able to one day live a life together, outside of a facilities walls. Gustafsson, who is still able to post to the internet had said,” We want to live together at some point, have dogs and pursue our hobbies: piercing and tattoos.’
Her fiancé apparently feels the same way and had added, “‘I love Michelle. Have never met anyone like her. I want to live a non-criminal life.’ to the earlier posting she had made.
Hopefully, they’re dreams will never come true.

This has got to be one of the raddest elks I’ve ever heard about, not that i often hear much about elks. In fact, I think this is quite possibly the first thing and has made me quite fond of the animal. You often hear about monkeys and jungle animals that get drunk from fermented fruit or actual alcoholic beverages from tourists that they steal, but this is a one of a kind elk, or so I thought.
According to The Local (A Swedish news site) -
When Per Johansson of Särö, south of Gothenburg, returned home from work on Tuesday it was dark outside and the rain was coming down hard. Suddenly Johansson heard a bellowing noise from the garden next door.
“I thought at first that someone was having a laugh. Then I went over to take a look and spotted an elk stuck in an apple tree with only one leg left on the ground,” Johansson told The Local.
The unfortunate elk was desperately entangled in the tree’s branches and was kicking ferociously as Johansson approached.
“I thought it looked pretty bad so I called the police who sent out an on-call hunter. But while we were waiting, the neighbours and I started to saw down some of the branches and then the hunter arrived with a saw as well,” said Johansson.
The group tried to make the elk more comfortable but to no avail.
It wasn’t until the fire brigade arrived on the scene and managed to bend the tree to the point where the exhausted elk could slide out of the branches that the animal was finally freed.
According to Johansson, it looked very much like the elk was severely drunk after eating too many fermenting apples.
Drunken elk are common in Sweden during the autumn season when there are plenty of apples lying around on the ground and hanging from branches in Swedish gardens.
While the greedy animal was reaching ever higher to reach the delicious but intoxicating fruit, it most likely stumbled into the tree, getting itself hopelessly entangled in the branches.
And from what Johansson could gather, this particular animal had been on a day-long bender.
“My neighbour recognised it as the animal that almost ran into her car earlier in the day. She was pretty sure the elk was already under the influence,“ said Johansson.
When the inebriated elk was freed, it lay for a while on the ground, seemingly unconscious.
After emergency services had ascertained that the animal was still alive, Johansson was told to keep an eye on it and call the hunter straight away if it seemed to be suffering.
But by the morning the hungover animal had stood up and cautiously moved a few metres away.
After a while it went on its way, although Johansson suspects it is still skulking around the neighbourhood.
“We often see elk stuffing their faces with apples around here but this is the first time we found one perched in a tree,” he told The Local.
It was barely noon in early December, and the sun was already setting as Thomas Landreth and Brett Kessler touched down in the Swedish mining town of Kiruna, a few hundred miles north of the Arctic Circle. A pale pink line underscored the horizon. Snow lay in pillowy drifts and weighed down the branches of the pine trees. Packs of huskies, lean and feral-looking, filled the crisp air with impatient yelps. Bundled up against the stinging cold, Landreth and Kessler clambered onto a waiting sled and, with a polite cry of “hey” from the driver, the dogs surged forward.
One evening earlier the couple, both 22, had stood on a stage in New York’s West Village for what was described as a “wedding and rehearsal cocktail,” at which they’d met their European counterparts— a lesbian couple from Poland and a gay male couple from Germany. The Europeans had married earlier that day on a Stockholm-New York SAS flight that was billed as the world’s first same-sex in-flight wedding, the result of a contest designed to exemplify Sweden’s progressive values. Also in attendance were around 30 reporters and the Swedish celebrity Efva Attling, best known in Europe for a hit 1981 pop ballad, “The Two of Us,” there to present each of the newlyweds with rings inscribed with the words from here to eternity from her eponymous jewelry line.
To celebrate their new status, the Europeans were promised a flashy menu of Brazilian blowouts, spray tans, nail appliques, and a visit to Christian Bale’s favorite spa (minus Christian Bale), courtesy of the New York City and West Hollywood tourism boards. By contrast, Landreth and Kessler would enjoy their conjugal rites in Sweden’s Icehotel, where the temperature doesn’t rise above 21 degrees Fahrenheit—so frigid that guests have to sleep in Arctic sleeping bags.
Needless to say, the Brazilian blowout has yet to reach Jukkäsjarvi, population 519, but no one travels to this small one-street town on the banks of the pristine Torne River to be pampered. They go for the Northern Lights and the ice (occasionally the ice goes to them—Jukkasjärvi’s talented ice-smiths supply pop-up ice bars as far afi eld as Tokyo and Dubai). Sometimes they even go to get married. “It was always going to be a destination wedding by default,” said Landreth, who had been discussing marriage with Kessler since last June. “But we’d always of thought Connecticut or D.C.” They didn’t anticipate their journey would involve sled dogs or a wedding banquet consisting of reindeer stew.
For their wedding night, the lovebirds chose a room inspired by the movie Tron, installed by British designers Ben Rousseau and Ian Douglas-Jones. The overall impression was of being trapped in an Atari video game. “We both embrace our inner geek,” said Kessler, adding that he and Landreth, students at UNC Chapel Hill, bonded over repeat viewings of Shaun of the Dead and Clerks 2. Similarly unfussy, the couple wore their snowsuits and boots during the ceremony. “We are here to celebrate love,” local minister Lise-Lott Wikholm told the congregation, before delivering a reading from Saint Paul. “It felt, in some senses, very binding,” said Kessler afterward. “We wish everyone we knew could have been here.” And with that, he and Landreth were ushered into a sled and driven off to their frosty honeymoon suite by two reindeer lucky enough to have escaped lunch.
I love that gay marriage is now going global! It has been such a long and hard battle for gay couples to first gain rights as individuals, but now be receiving rights as a couple too. This is a huge step in the right direction for the gay community. The more marriages we see, means the more people are willing to accept the fact that gay couples are here to stay and will continue to fight for their right…to marry. Congratulations to the happy, and cold, couple!
