Striptease at funerals? Yes, in Taiwan.

Many light a candle and make a prayer. In Taiwan, people go far beyond to homage the dead. Striptease dancers are often hired to “dance” in honor of the deceased.

With their minimal and sexy clothes, they present themselves in front of adults, seniors and children. Everything in a “respectful” environment.

According to an AFP report, the presence of erotic dancers in religious festivals have become increasingly common in the eastern country. Women display their bodies, among other things, to calm the wandering souls.

In 2011, the anthropologist Marc L. Moskowitz made a documentary about the practice, under the title “Dancing for the Dead: Funeral Strippers in Taiwan.”

Car hits a house at second floor level in São Paulo Brazil

A driver lost the control of its car and broke into the second floor of a house in the East Zone of São Paulo, Brazil. At the time of the accident, there were eight people in the house, but no resident was injured. Watch the video.

Eyewitnesses of the accident, which occurred last Sunday, said the vehicle went down the road, crossed a bridge and only stopped when it hit the wall on the second floor of a house. In the room where the car hit there was 6 month old child sleeping.

Speaking to Globo, Alessiane Jesus de Almeida said she was sleeping with her son and was frightened by the noise of the shock.

Alessiane’s sister, the owner of the house, was with her son on the other side and says that the child was not hit by little. “He had just gone to the bathroom, where the car entered. He left the bathroom and when I arrived, I lay in bed and heard the noise,” said Luciene.

Firefighters had to climb to the roof of the house and use a rope to save the driver of the car, which suffered no serious injuries but was taken to hospital for observation.
