City com­piles ha­bit­ual drunks list

AURORA — The po­lice depart­ment in the sec­ond largest city of the US state of Illi­nois is go­ing to com­pile a “ha­bit­ual drunk­ard” list to help fight public in­tox­i­ca­tion.

Aurora Po­lice Depart­ment Sgt. Tom Mcna­mara says the list will have “cer­tain clien­tele” whom po­lice and fire de­part­ments see regularly. The (Aurora) Bea­con-news re­ports that in­cludes peo­ple whom po­lice and fire per­son­nel trans­port six times or more in a 120-day pe­riod.

The City Coun­cil ap­proved keep­ing the list this week as part of an over­haul to city liquor laws. Aurora is roughly 64km west of Chicago.

Po­lice say the goal is public safety. Those on the list won’t be able to pur­chase liquor in Aurora and lo­cal busi­nesses are ex­pected to com­ply.

Author­i­ties say they got the idea from Madi­son, Wis­con­sin, which has a sim­i­lar pol­icy.

Man ‘mis­er­able’ with 19-inch penis

A 52-YEAR-OLD Mex­i­can man says he has the world’s largest penis — and it’s mak­ing his life mis­er­able. Roberto Esquivel Cabr­era of Saltillo told Mex­i­can news­pa­per Van­guardia that he would like to be con­sid­ered dis­abled be­cause the mem­ber leaves him un­able to work, forc­ing him to live on as­sis­tance and scav­enge for food.

His so­cial life is dis­mal as well, he says. Women are too scared to be with him, ac­cord­ing to the news­pa­per.

His penis is re­port­edly 48.2 cen­time­ters (nearly 19 inches) long and the tip’s cir­cum­fer­ence is 25 cen­time­tres. Cabr­era ap­par­ently pro­vided doubters with a med­i­cal imag­ing photo of his penis, and the pic­ture has rapidly cir­cu­lated through Span­ish-lan­guage media, in­clud­ing Tele­mu­ndo and La Opin­ion. He is be­ing tested at a lo­cal health cen­tre as doc­tors try to fig­ure out what to do, Van­guardia wrote.

Cabr­era said he wanted at least to be rec­og­nized by Guin­ness World Records, but an of­fi­cial told the UK’S Daily Star that the or­ga­ni­za­tion has no such cat­e­gory. — Huff­in­g­ton Post.
