In this video, there are men who are jumping off a 400-foot canyon wall tethered to a rope and swinging across the gorge. And while the entire video is pretty incredible, the BEST part starts at 11:20 when a girlfriend, Jessica Powell of Meridian, Idaho, is contemplating whether or not to jump. Creighton Baird of Amarillo, Texas, is Powell’s boyfriend and tries his best to encourage her to jump.
After this, the couple did in fact break up. But, it was a few weeks later, and not due to this incident. After the jump, it took Powell 45 minutes to get back up and she had long since cooled off. Powell and Baird kissed and laughed it off.

This is a heartwarming story that I didn’t expect. The outcome is awesome and literally made me cry.
I’ve had teachers lose their minds in class, throw desks at students, Scream every curse word there is, but I have NEVER had a teacher tell me she plans to marry Jesus in heaven and that he gave her a special eye that allows Jesus to see what she sees. And quite frankly, I’m fucking pissed. This is one of the most amazing things to ever happen in High School. When I was trying to learn how to say ‘you are pretty’ in French (tu es jolie…that’s one thing that stuck), these assholes were getting a history lesson about Jesus from his FUTURE wife!
Imelda Paredes, 42-year-old Spanish teacher, confirmed that she was, in fact, the teacher at San Benito Veterans Memorial Academy who was featured in the video.
The video, filmed by one of her students on Monday, shows Paredes begin a discussion about Jesus Christ and how he was in love with Mary Magdalene, a conspiracy theory popularized by Dan Brown’s fictional novel, The Da Vinci Code.
But the discussion soon turned bizarre when Paredes, who was speaking in Spanish during the majority of the 12-minute video, said that Mary Magdalene is not dead but instead reincarnated in different people.
“Soy yo (It is I),” Paredes said in Spanish, claiming she was the reincarnated Mary Magdalene and that Jesus Christ, who she claimed was in love with her, was planning on taking her to another planet where they would marry and conceive a child.
“I haven’t seen him (Jesus), but he talks to me every day,” Paredes said in the video. “He calls me, and he just recently promised me that he’s coming soon for me and for the good people to take us to the heavens, where I’ll have his baby. I have my husband here, but I don’t know what’s going to happen to him. My husband is Jesus Christ, and he is the one I want to marry.”
A student then asked his teacher, “How can you prove that you are who you say you are?” Paredes replied, “If you look at my eyes, one of my eyes is not mine.” She was referring to an earlier discussion in which she claimed Jesus Christ loved Mary Magdalene so much that he gave her one of the pupils from his eyes.
“Is there anybody that wants to see Jesus?” Paredes continued. “He’s watching you.”
As if that’s not creepy enough, she proceeds to take off her shoes and play music from her desk, where she stood motionless for some time. A couple of students were so creeped out that they went and told some other authorities at the school.
Once clear she was not fit to conduct an interview, the News asked her husband, Adrian Paredes, to speak on her behalf. He said, “I feel that my wife does care a lot about her students, and she loves working in San Benito. There’s really nothing else to say except to please respect my family’s privacy.”
Although she was once named Teacher of the Year in 2007, she has had some incidences that students reported. She is now on leave and will be reviewed before being allowed to return to the classroom.

Last Thursday at Chuck E. Cheese in Pearland, a five-year-old birthday girl was having a great time with most of her 9 siblings. Unfortunately, her mother left her at the children’s pizza place… overnight. She was unaware that the girl was left until she started getting the kids ready for school the next day.
Meanwhile, CPS took the girl into custody after realizing that the mother couldn’t be located. Although it is being said that the mother is remorseful, she certainly doesn’t sound like it in the 911 call below.

An adoptive father, who is not being named at this time to protect the identity of the children, has been arrested for having sex and allowing other men to have sex with his adopted children. The 39-year-old “father” from Troy, Ohio, was also in the process of adopting a fourth child when all the allegations came to light.
Not only was he an adoptive father, but he was also a junior league basketball coach, who has recently been suspended due to the allegations. He has been charged with three counts of rape and one count of compelling prostitution. The part that makes this story even more disturbing is that he pimped out these children to at least two other men that the authorities are aware of at this time.
The man was apparently talking to an undercover officer online and arranging for him to have sex with the 10-year-old boy. The same detective that was arranging that also talked to two other men who claimed to have already slept with the boy. Sadly, the young boys verified that this was in fact happening.

As we all know, Snoop Dogg smokes weed and enjoys getting high. It’s not very shocking to hear that drug sniffing drugs were aware of the marijuana that was being held on his tour bus when they were crossing a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, Texas. What I am shocked to find out is that he was arrested this time. I mean, how often must this man smoke and the police be aware of it? I’m sure that he has been let go and multiple occasions because of who he is and the persona he has built around this ‘medication’.
The performer (real name: Calvin Broadus) was busted by Texas cops Saturday after several joints were found on his tour bus. The weed was discovered by a drug-sniffing dog during a routine inspection at a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, the same town whereWillie Nelson was popped in November 2010.
Like Nelson, Snoop Dogg claimed ownership of the marijuana found on his bus, which was searched by the Hudspeth County Sheriff’s Office. The rapper, cited for misdemeanor pot possession, was not booked or made to pose for a mug shot like Nelson.
This town must be needing some tourism money or something to continue busting performers for such small petty crimes. Sadly, this bust came after Snoop Dogg mentioned he’d like to discuss the legalization with the President, who is opposed to legalizing marijuana. I doubt Mr. Obama would be willing to sit down and hear him out after this arrest. Not that I really believed he’d do so before the arrest either.

UPDATE: December 29th, 2011 @ 4:20 PM -
Yazdanpanah’s niece, 22-year-old Sara Fatemeh Zarei, sent a text to a friend just before 11am saying they had arrived at the apartment and that Yazdanpanah was there.
‘Soo we’re here. We just got here and my uncle is here too. Dressed as Santa. Awesome,’ she said in one text.
At 11:15 am she texted: ‘Now he wants to be all fatherly and win father of the year.’
Grapevine police Sgt. Robert Eberling said police believe that after Yazdanpanah shot his six family members, he called 911 at 11:34 am and then shot himself.
Police arrived about three minutes later and found everyone dead. It appeared they had been opening presents around their Christmas tree just before the attack.
A recording of the 911 call released yesterday revealed someone saying: ‘Help, help’ and then ‘I am shooting people.’
Police said those words, muffled by the caller’s labored breathing, couldn’t be heard by the dispatcher on Christmas Day but were audible when investigators used a different software system. They believe the call was made by Yazdanpanah.
Aziz Yazdanpanah, 56, had separated from his estranged wife in March of this year. On Christmas morning in Grapevine, Texas, Yazdanpanah came into an apartment dressed as Santa and shot dead many victims before turning the gun on himself. Among some of those murdered were two of his children as well as his estranged wife and it is believed that the separation is what led to this disastrous Christmas.
The victims have been identified as his wife Nasrin Rahmaty, 55, the couple’s two children Nona Yazdanpanah, 19, and her brother, Ali, 15.
Yazdanpanah also killed his sister-in-law’s family. Zohreh Rahmaty, 58, who was Nasrin’s sister, and her husband, Hossein Zarei, 59. Their daughter Sahra Zarei, 22, was also shot.
Although the family was having financial troubles and had to declare bankruptcy, no one expected that this loving father would take the lives of his children and other family members. Police had said it was the most gruesome gun crime that they had seen in this district.
Police dispatched at about 11:30am local time on Sunday, found the bodies in the first-floor living room of a two-story unit in the Lincoln Vineyards apartments, police said.
The 911 caller never spoke to police, and officers did not see the telephone when they arrived, officials said.
Eberling said he believed police had to kick in the door to enter. No neighbors reported hearing gunshots, he said.
For a father to kill his own children is absolutely horrendous, and then to be so cruel and dress as Santa Clause before gunning down everyone, I just can’t possibly imagine what was going on in this man’s head. Money, despite it being a major cause for stress, should never be so important that not living seems to be the only solution. The children who were murdered through this had full lives to live and could have been responsible for doing something miraculous, but because you allowed the finances to become unbearable, you took their lives from them.
These children were innocent, and had to pay for your stress, unhappiness, and selfishness. You are lucky to have died because quite honestly, it would have been a better scenario if you had to live with the guilt of what you had done.
