member of pointing guns at penis facebook group shot himself

A member of a Facebook group where men jokingly post photos of themselves pointing loaded guns at their genitals, accidentally shot himself in his privates.

The bizarre incident took place on Tuesday in San Diego, California, landing the trigger-happy man in the hospital to be treated for injuries to his scrotum, as Vice first reported. 

The man, who has not been named, is reportedly a member of the Facebook group ‘Loaded Guns Pointed at [B]enis’. The group was created in May to get a rise out of responsible gun owners by showcasing photos of men pointing loaded firearms with the safety off at their privates. 

A San Diego man on Tuesday shared this video on the Facebook group 'Loaded Guns Pointed at [B]enis showing him brandishing his .45 caliber 1911 pistol

That is exactly what the San Diego resident was doing when he shot himself this week. 

He posted a video of himself showing off his .45 caliber 1911 pistol, then pressing the muzzle against his genitals. After a few seconds, the gun discharges.

The wounded man documented what happened next in a series of posts, writing: ‘Hey [b]ois, I might have f***ed up.’ 

The comment was accompanied by a photo showing the man’s exposed legs with a towel pressed in between them, drops of blood on the floor and a crumpled copy of the US Constitution.

‘I’m not kidding. I just shot myself,’ the gun enthusiast continued her narration. ‘God’s caliber went through my scrotum, mattress, boxspring and floor.’ 

As Vice reported, the man initially thought the bullet had just grazed his body, but a trip to the hospital confirmed that the round had gone straight through his scrotum, leaving an entry and exit wound. 

He reportedly shared a photo of himself laying on a gurney wearing a hospital gown and pointing his finger at his privates in a gesture mimicking a gun. 

An admin for the Facebook group reported that the victim was ‘100% okay’ and even went to work the following day. 

The San Diego Police Department has confirmed that officers were called to the hospital at 8.30pm on Tuesday for a report of a man suffering from a self-inflicted wounded.

But by the time they arrived at the hospital, the patient had been discharged. 

In the wake of the incident, other members of the Facebook group elevated the San Diego man to the status of an admin and celebrated him as ‘king.’ 

‘The reason we are calling him king is partially because the poor guy already shot himself, don’t think he needs to be chastised as well,’ the other admin told Vice. ‘I’m quite sure he’s learned his lesson without the entire world calling him an idiot.’

National Housing Finance and Investment Corporation expects Australia’s population to shrink by 0.8%

national housing finance and investment corporation expects australias population to shrink by 0 8

The coronavirus pandemic is expected to cause the steepest plunge in Australia’s population since World War I.

The federal government’s National Housing Finance and Investment Corporation is forecasting a 0.8 per cent population decline over two years.

In the absence of immigration, Australia’s population was expected to fall by 214,000 between a peak in 2019 and a trough in 2021.

Half of that was attributed to the drop-off in international students, following the closure of Australia’s national border in March.

‘Immigration cuts have flow-on effects on population growth – temporary (international students) immigrants are the main driver of population growth,’ the NHFIC report said.

Australia’s immigration pause would spark the steepest population decrease since World War I, shortly before the Spanish flu pandemic in 1918 reached Australian shores.

Only the unwinding of the long post-war baby boom in 1971 saw a comparably steep population decline. 

In the year to June 2019, Australia had a net annual immigration rate of 239,600 when the number of people leaving was subtracted from the tally of new arrivals.

The population increase of 1.4 per cent was among the highest in the developed world and well above the OECD average of 0.8 per cent.

A declining population also has implications for property prices, with the National Housing Finance and Investment Corporation predicting a possible shortfall 232,000 shorfall in demand for new private dwellings by 2023.

The forecast population decline, as a result of coronavirus measures, has also worried the Reserve Bank of Australia which last month released a paper which said a 40 per cent plunge in house prices was an 'extreme but plausible scenario'. Pictured are houses at Kellyville in Sydney's north-west

The forecast population decline, as a result of coronavirus measures, has also worried the Reserve Bank of Australia which last month released a paper which said a 40 per cent plunge in house prices was an ‘extreme but plausible scenario’.

The RBA report on debt levels said Australia could experience a house price bubble similar to what occurred in United States, Spain and Ireland after the Global Financial Crisis.

The NHFIC is in charge of the government’s $500million First Home Loan Deposit Scheme, where first home buyers can secure a mortgage with a five per cent deposit with taxpayers underwriting the rest of the 20 per cent deposit.

Should new home buyers struggle to pay off their loan and be forced to sell en masse, the federal government would be left holding equity in assets worth a lot less.

A population decrease would most likely cause house prices to fall, as capital growth worried sparked a sell-off among investors.

mums genius grout cleaning trick leaves her bathroom walls sparkling clean in seconds

An Australian mother has revealed how she ‘cracked the code’ and discovered how to clean dirty grout on the bathroom shower walls with ease.

The Melbourne woman was frustrated after having tried ‘every product’ on her rental bathroom walls before resorting to mixing bicarb soda with Domestos disinfectant bleach.

‘Mums! I’ve cracked the code! This took me only a few minutes and not a lot of effort – I couldn’t believe my eyes!’ she said online and shared images to the Mums Who Cook, Clean and Organise Facebook group.  

For health and safety reasons, it’s advised to avoid mixing bleach with other chemicals, but combining the product with bicarb soda is safe.

The woman said she mixed the two products until a paste was formed, then used an old toothbrush to apply it onto the grout.

‘In most places I didn’t even leave it, just a light brushing, it was gone in an instant,’ she said.

The woman was ‘so pleased’ with how well the formula worked at cleaning the grout she highly recommends it to others.

Her post has been ‘liked’ by more than 1,200 others since it was shared on September 20, leaving others very impressed.

‘I’m off to go scrub everything in the house!’ one woman said.

‘Well I know what I’m doing while the kids are at school,’ another said.

‘Just bought Domestos! Will give it a go,’ a third added. 

While the clever hack worked well at cleaning the grout, others warned about the dangers of mixing chemicals together. 

CHEMICALS YOU SHOULD NEVER MIX 

Bleach + Vinegar

Baking Soda + Vinegar

Bleach + Ammonia

Drain Cleaner + Drain Cleaner

Hydrogen Peroxide + Vinegar

Bleach + Rubbing Alcohol

‘Be careful people when mixing chemicals, don’t ever mix vinegar and bleach,’ one mum said. 

‘Good on you for experimenting and finding a solution to something that so many people struggle with – please carefully research your chemicals before mixing!’ another warned.   

Inhaling the toxic vapours can lead to coughing, breathing problems, allergic reactions and even nasty chemical burns. 

It’s a common cleaning mistake many people make, as cleaning experts have warned for years that adding any acidic to bleach will produce a toxic chlorine vapour. 

Before you get rid of the mould in your home, the experts from consumer company CHOICE said the first thing you need to do is assess the surface the fungi has attached to.  

‘Non-porous’ surfaces such as hard plastics should be relatively easier to clean.

‘When mould grows, it develops hyphae, or roots, which grow into the grout or silicone. You can clean the surfaces of the grout or silicone, but not deep into it. In those cases you have to replace the silicone or re-grout your bathroom,’ they said.
