(Scroll down for video) You can now receive a 5 year jail sentence for uploading “revenge porn” to the Internet in Israel.

The Knesset passed a new law, which aims to prevent someone from becoming a porn star against their will.

The legislature added an amendment to the Preventing Sexual Harassment law prohibiting uploading videos or pictures of a sexual nature to the Internet.

The act of doing so is known as "virtual rape,” and it is now punishable by up to five years in prison.

The bill was introduced after an incident where a video of a couple having sex at a nightclub was uploaded to the WhatsApp application and was forwarded to thousands of people nationwide.

The legislation initially faced some opposition on concerns that it may violate freedom of expression. The law was modified to exclude videos that have a public interest or those that are uploaded by mistake.

An extremely old woman celebrated her 104th birthday at the Dead Sea surrounded by family and friends, according to a report by the Tazpit News Agency.

German tourist, Eleonore Kastner, affectionately known as Oma Ella, celebrated her 104th birthday in a Dead Sea hotel with forty friends and family who traveled with her to Israel for the special event.

Since she turned 100 four years ago, Oma Ella had decided that the time had come to “live a little.” She has been celebrating her
birthday each year in a different corner of the world together with her family. For her 100th birthday, Kastner celebrated at the Vatican.

During the following years, she marked 101 in Monaco, 102 in Austria and 103 in Munich.

Kastner, a devout Christian, has visited and prayed at Christian holy sites in the Holy Land, even traveling on a donkey to reach an isolated monastery in the Judean desert.

Kastner, who was born in 1910 in Kelheim, Germany, has accomplished some ground-breaking feats in her older age. She is thought to be the oldest person to tour the Himalayas and meet with the Queen of Bhutan, and is the oldest member of the Eurovision Club that travels to every
song competition.

In addition, the German grandmother is considered to be the oldest person to have a Facebook page which she has already updated since arriving in Israel with a video greeting. She also appears in YouTube videos celebrating with youth at beer festivals in Germany, enjoying fairground rides and dancing to contemporary music.

And her secret for longevity? "Be healthy and enjoy a sweet schnapps every day!" is Kastner’s motto.

After she married in 1932, Kastner moved to Amberg, Bavaria where she raised four children, only one of whom is still alive. Her elder brother, who was born in 1906, was murdered in the Dachau concentration camp in 1943 after resisting the Nazi occupation.

Kastner has 6 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and one great-great grandchild - many of whom joined her in her celebrations
in Israel. Today, she lives with one of her grandsons, Joe Kastner and his family, in Berlin.

During her visit to Israel, the Tourism Ministry presented Kastner with a birthday present: a silver-bound Bible along with a certificate of appreciation, nominating her as an ambassador of good will for tourism to Israel.

(Scroll down for video) A man was seen on video relieving himself in the middle of the road.

The man in China, was on the street when he suddenly needed to use the bathroom.

With no bathroom in sight, rather than being discrete and hiding between the trees nearby, the man decided to do his business right there in middle of the road.

His problem began when a fire truck wanted to use that same road.

Firefighters waited for the man to move out of the way, but when he failed to do so, two firefighters got out of the vehicle to see what was wrong.

In the video below, which was taken from the dash camera in the fire truck, the man is seen squatting in the middle of the road, while the firefighters are seen asking him to move.

When they fail to persuade the squatter to move out of the way, the firefighters physically picked him up and dragged him to the side of the road.

When they moved him, the video revealed his “freshly dropped load,” which was why he was unable to move at the time.

This is another case of showing that these cameras are about safety and not just speed,” a North Yorkshire Police spokesperson said.

"We will take action against all crimes to ensure that we keep our roads as safe as possible for everyone," the spokesperson added.

(Scroll down for video) A bakery wanted to get even with a customer, so they sent her a “feces cake” with the word “eat s***” written on it.

Micaela Harris was embarrassed and her nieces were horrified when she removed wrapping paper to reveal a shocking cake at her engagement party in New Zealand.

The cake was retaliation against her sister, who had a disagreement with the owner of Oh Cakes, Emma McDonald.

"It was a strange situation. At that time, my sister did not even know what was going on," Harris said.

"I think that the disagreement was taken too far. As a business owner, you have to deal with clients you don’t like. You have to take the ups and downs," she said.

McDonald seemed unrepentant after the incident and published a photo of the cake on her Facebook page.

"There is nothing really negative I've seen apart from a few who do not read and understand properly. I have also seen an increase in business,” McDonald said.

While surfing the Internet, Paul Dalling, 27, of Milford Haven, West Wales, found a homemade poppy-seed tea recipe online.

The tea was supposed to relax the person drinking it, but instead, it killed Dalling.

Opium contains approximately 12 percent morphine, which can be deadly when one consumes too much at a time.

“Drinking poppy seeds tea can be fatal as it is impossible to measure the dose, as the intensity of seeds vary from plant to plant," medical examiner Mark Layton said.

Hours after drinking the tea, Dalling went to sleep with his girlfriend and her child.

"While in bed. Dalling coughed a lot and felt hot to the touch, but he was not in a condition that caused an alarm,” officer Jeremy Davies said.

In the morning, when his girlfriend was unable to wake him up, and saw blood around his nose and mouth, she called the emergency services.

Emergency workers performed CPR, but were unable to save him. Dalling was pronounced dead at the house.

An autopsy found morphine and codeine, both present in poppy tea, inside Dalling’s body.

The medical examiner ruled that Dalling’s death was drug related.

(Scroll down for video) A little girl thought that her tongue would never get stuck to a flagpole, but she was wrong.

Maddie Gilmartin was helping her father during a snow storm in eastern Kingston, New Hampshire, when she suddenly felt an urge to do something weird with her tongue.

"It's just kind of popped into my head. 'Hey, what if I stuck my tongue to a flagpole? It will come off immediately,’" Maddie Gilmartin recalled.

Then, she did it. "I was like, ‘Did I really just do it myself?’” she said.

Her mother, Tracy, was inside the house and her father, Shawn, was plowing snow in his driveway.

"Tracy saw Maddie flapping her arms, but she thought the child was playing. "I saw her at the flagpole. She waved her arms, and I was not sure what's going on until I got closer," Shawn Gilmartin said.

The 12-year-old tried to pull her tongue free, which made her bleed. When Shawn Gilmartin went to his daughter, he tried to use the heat of his breath to free her tongue, but that did not work.

The parents called 911 and waited for EMS to arrive. While waiting, they were able to use warm water to free her tongue from the flagpole.

For 15 minutes, her tongue was stuck to the flagpole. The girl suffered pain to her lips and tongue.

Maddie compared the pain with numerous bee stings.

She's doing well and doctors said that her swelling will go away after six weeks.

Police release video of African American toddler using profanity

The child 
By: Sarah Weiss

Police officers in Omaha, Nebraska, have caused controversy by posting a video of an African-American toddler using profanities.

Authorities felt it was important to show people an example of “the thug cycle,” where adults turn their young kids into thugs.

The toddler was taught by adults to curse and use bad language.

The child is innocent and has no idea that what he is saying is very bad.

The child is being raised to use profanities and to curse at adults.

In the video, the child was seen dressed in nothing more than a diaper, while relatives recorded him with a camera phone.

The relatives were heard swearing at the toddler. They also insulted him in order to get him to swear back at them.

The relatives were heard using many profanities at the child and they were heard laughing every time the child used bad language.

They also demanded the child to repeat some profanities. At one point, a man was heard telling the boy to pose for the camera, to which the toddler responded by telling the adult to “shut up.”

“Despite the fact that it is a heartbreaking video, we are required to share it in order to educate the law-abiding public on the terrible cycle of violence and thuggery that some young innocent children are helplessly caught in,” authorities wrote on their website.

Ryan Lee Hall

A woman’s good deed turned into a nightmare when a stranger she helped attacked her.

Katie Schlinger, 26, of Florida, may never walk again after a simple trip to a hospital ruined her life.

Schlinger was in Aiken, South Carolina, to support her brother, who underwent open heart surgery at Aiken Regional Medical Center.

At 4:00 a.m., she was smoking a cigarette in a car near the Quality Inn.

Michael Antwon Fuller, 23, approached her and asked for a cigarette.

The two began to talk about her family member in the hospital.

Fuller said he was worried about his uncle, who was in the hospital and asked the woman if she would drive him there so he could see how his uncle was doing.

The hospital was only four minutes away, and Fuller who was well spoken, well dressed and clean-shaven, did not seem like a threat. Schlinger decided to take him there.

However, when they got to the hospital, Fuller told the woman to continue driving, and she did.

Fuller then took out a gun and pistol whipped her, and ordered her to keep driving.

A scared Schlinger offered Fuller to go to an ATM and give him all the money she had in her bank account, but he refused the offer.

Schlinger thought of a way to escape. She hit the gas and then threw herself out of the car.

Leaving Fuller in possession of the car, she hoped he would take off with the car, but that did not happen.

Instead, Fuller backed up, forced Schlinger to get back into the car and forced her to perform oral sex on him at gunpoint.

Schlinger then decided to crash the car into a tree so she can get away from her attacker.

Sadly, during the crash, her spine was injured.

A passerby called for help.

Fuller was found in the car. He was semi conscious with the gun in his hand.

He was arrested and charged with kidnapping, criminal sexual conduct, unlawful carrying of a pistol and possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime.
