'Road Rage' always ends bad...
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.
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?
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?

“…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.

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.
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.
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.
