'Road Rage' always ends bad...

Poo-bagging prank ignites trailer home

A teen is being hailed as a hero for helping his family to safety after a prank got out of hand and destroyed his home. Jordan, 16, was sleeping in his family's mobile home last weekend, when his mom awoke and noticed something was amiss.

"She got up and looked out the window, and saw there was a fire on our outside deck," said the teen's dad.

The fire was started by someone who left a flaming bag of fecal matter on the family's doorstep, police said yesterday. It quickly spread, blocking both the trailer's exits, so Jordan's mother woke him up and called on him to help. Jordan then rushed to wake up his little brother and sister. His mom, Susan Feasey, had already called 911, so the family could do little but watch as flames engulfed their home.

Damages are estimated at $120,000. Police have arrested a 16-year-old boy, known to the family, who faces arson charges.

Is it just me… or is this not funny? Just a case of poo-bagging gone wrong. Also, I had no idea trailer homes could be so expensive. Click here to read the article.

People are watching you in the bathroom

Check out this new men's restroom at the Sofitel hotel in Queenstown, New Zealand. Is it just me- or would this just freak anyone else out? I’m not sure if I could take the pressure with all these 'people' watching?

The coolest xBox 360 store on the planet

Microsoft has constructed a building in Tokyo called the Xbox Lounge. This venue just opened its doors to the public a couple days ago. The Lounge is filled with – you guessed it, Xbox 360 kiosks, as well as a giant 200-inch screen for special events and a café for those who are worn out from all the gaming. Pretty neat place. Oh and by the way in Japan, they are releasing the Xbox 360 twenty-days before it will hit stores in the U.S.- anyone want to fly to Japan for the weekend?

Married Teacher-Student Sex Bust

A Florida math teacher is facing charges that she carried on an 18-month affair with a teenage student she coached at a Tampa high school.

An excerpt of which you'll find below, given by the alleged victim, now 17, gave investigators a detailed (and graphic) account of her alleged involvement with Wallace, who is 28 and married. She has been charged with lewd and lascivious behavior, a felony that carries a maximum 15-year prison term.

The student told investigators that the sexual relationship began in early-2003, after she received a note from Wallace saying that she "found her attractive and wanted to know if she felt the same way." The note was in an envelope attached to a graded paper that Wallace returned to the girl in math class. The girl told police that they first kissed in Wallace's car "after a few games of arm wrestling" and subsequently engaged in sexual activity "more than 50 times" in the teacher's car and her apartment.

An iPod accessory that is 'too fluffy' for me

Here’s another crazy ass iPod accessory (surprise!). This case is called the FluffPod.

“…full featured soft luxury iPod case made from extra soft faux fur, silky smooth satin lining, and white leather boots”

This is an iPod case? WTF? This thing looks like a hairball your dog coughed up. The last thing I want is some furry case being wrapped around my iPod- getting in the way of me being able to see the screen as I look down to change songs. What a piece of sh*t.

Old man gets fined for his kids downloads

A 67-year-old man who says he doesn't even like watching movies has been sued by the film industry for copyright infringement after a grandson of his downloaded four movies on their home computer.

The Motion Picture Association of America filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday against Fred Lawrence of Racine, seeking as much as $600,000 in damages for downloading four movies over the Internet file-sharing service iMesh.

The suit was filed after Lawrence refused a March offer to settle the matter by paying $4,000.

"First of all, like I say, I guess I'd have to plead being naive about the whole thing," he said. I personally didn't do it, and I wouldn't do it. But I don't think it was anything but an innocent mistake my grandson made."

Lawrence said his grandson, who was then 12, downloaded "The Incredibles," "I, Robot," "The Grudge," and "The Forgotten" in December, without knowing it was illegal to do so.

The man said his grandson downloaded the movies out of curiosity, and deleted the computer files immediately. The family already owned three of the four titles on DVD, he said.

"I can see where they wouldn't want this to happen, but when you get up around $4,000 ... I don't have that kind of money," Lawrence said. "I never was and never will be a wealthy person."

Kori Bernards, vice president of corporate communications for MPAA, said the movie industry wants people to understand the consequences of Internet piracy. She said the problem is the movies that were downloaded were then available to thousands of other users on the iMesh network. Illegal downloading costs the movie industry an estimated $5.4 billion a year, she said. Click here to read the article.

The best break up / cheating letters of all-time...

Fu*kin hilarious. That’s the words you’ll be saying after you read this post. I know these are long to read, however... I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

The following is an actual “email exchange” between a friend of a friend that I know (I hate to drop names, in fear one of them might kill me). In no way is this edited, and in all actuality these letters are verbatim copies. This might not make any sense now… but just wait until you read this unbelievable way to break-up with someone (as if writing emails to each other isn’t already in bad taste to begin with). Fu*kin hilarious. Enjoy…

It would be difficult for me to be any more miserable right now, I feel like the worst person ever. First, let me start by saying that I am truly truly sorry, and I hate myself for hurting you. Of all the people in the whole entire world, you were honestly the last personthat I would ever want to wrong in any way. There is no excuse at all for anything that happened, so I won't even try other than to say all of us had WAY too much to drink, and I did a stupid thing. I can handle you being pissed at me, I absolutely deserve it, I can even handle the ugly words that were exchanged between us, what I can't handle is thinking that you see me as a different person. It is weird, I feel like I just went through a horrible break up or something. The world looked funny yesterday, I couldn't crack a smile if you paid me, there are songs I can't listen to, and I just ! feel beyond crushed. Idon't know if you meant everything you said to me, and I am hoping that you didn't. I know that I was wrong on many levels, but I am also hoping that this is something that we can deal with. I know it sounds totally crazy and stupid, but you have come to play such a significant role in my life, I can't imagine my days without you. It is totallystrange and weird to say that, and you could say that my behavior didn't reflect that, and you would be correct. I hate feeling like you hate me, and I hate feeling like all of your friends think I am a terrible person, because I am not. I know there is nothing I can sayor do to take back what happened, but I just want you to know that fighting with you was just about the worst thing I could have ever imagined. It was right up there with one of the ugliest nights of my life, and I would give anything in the world to rewind and fix it.

I am not sure if you will respond to this, part of me thinks that you won't. If not today, then maybe some other time. Also, thanks for getting my stuff together, although I think my sunglasses are still at your house, if you could keep your eyes peeled for them that would be great. I can't even focus or work today, I can't eat, I seriously feel like it was an ugly break up, and I am hoping against hopes that it was not that and you are not done with me. Please don't cut me off, I really don't think I can handle that.

I am so sorry,

Dear Beth,

Thank you for your concern. I'll be sure to file it away under "L" for "Long-winded diatribes from drunken whores I couldn't care less about".

You did a stupid thing huh? No...doing long division and forgetting to carry the one is "a stupid thing"; Mixing in a red sock with a load of whites is "a stupid thing"; Blowing some guy in a bathroom for 45 minutes while I sit at the bar wondering if you're taking so long because you ate too much bran that morning isn't as much a "Stupid thing as it is grounds for permanent removal from my social calendar.

To be honest, I'm not sure if it was more amusing that you went and degraded yourself in a public toilet not once but twice in a 2 hour span, or that you seemed to think that by saying "Well, I didn't Fuckhim" somehow gave you a clean slate. So forgive me if I couldn't care less if the world "looked funny" to you yesterday. Since your world revolves around blow dryers, goldenretrievers, Prada Bags and Jelly Beans, I'm sure it must have been most unsettling to actually have to consider someone else's feelings for 24 hours straight. The good news for you is that my friends don't think you're a terrible person, they just think you're the average run of the mill cum-guzzling blond who commands about as much respect asyour average child porn collector. I could be wrong but, it's pretty hard to respect some B&T chick who comes out to spend the night at my place even though she's seeing someone else in New jersey and winds up tongue-bathing the taint of anyone who decides 30 minutes of droning commentary on Colin Farrell's new haircut is worth putting up with for a hand job in the men's room. The good thing about being a guy is that when I eventually bump into the young lad who finger-blasted you on top of a towel dispenser last saturday, we'll have a shot and laugh our heads off about the time it happened.

By the way, for the amount of time you claim to spend in spin class you really must be doing something wrong to sport the thunder thighs you do. Watching you parade around my bedroom in a thong was a little like watching sea lions mate. Thought you might like to know.

PS. I BCC'd about 100 people on this email.

Talk to you never,


The most dangerous iPod accessory ever

Check out this iPod mini accessory called the CarClip. The idea is, you can hang your iPod from your rear view mirror, so that it is always in reach when your trying to change songs (via an iTrip). The thing I really really don’t understand is how that is any bit safer than just putting it in your cup holder. I mean- either way is still horrible and a bad idea for you to be looking at your iPod to change songs anytime you’re driving (especially in stop and go traffic). Whatever- seems like if it’s an accessory for an iPod, anybody will by this crap. Click here to learn more about this dangerous product.
