This is going to hurt...
Police are baffled about why a Pawtucket, R.I., man got naked -- then drove his car recklessly down a street in Providence -- crashing into cars and causing an accident that sent another man to the hospital.
A witness told WJAR-TV that he saw John Persico walking naked down the street moments before Persico struck his vehicle.
Persico was allegedly speeding before he collided with a pickup truck at an intersection. The crash sent 56-year-old Michael Sheehan to Rhode Island Hospital with severe injuries. Persico was also hospitalized, and a dog in Sheehan's truck was injured.
Police said they don't know why Persico was naked -- and he did not seem to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Article here.
The Sun UK reports that Eva Longoria admitted she has put on weight, but she doesn't care. She claims she packed on the pounds because of her boyfriend, San Antonio Spurs point guard, Tony Parker. In an interview Longoria said:
I have no freakin’ clue what this guy is saying (it’s not in English)… but what I do know is this kid has some problems. He is totally freaking out.

A study by three professors found that many film critics, faced with far too many movies to write about, tend to avoid writing reviews of bad films that they’ve seen.

A 12-year-old boy who was shot by a friend Saturday in Eagleville didn't tell anyone until the round was found lodged in his back, a sheriff's deputy reported.
Edward J. Patton was treated for the gunshot wound Sunday at Middle Tennessee Medical Center. The child was visiting a friend who retrieved a .22-caliber rifle and pointed it at him. The friend apparently didn't think the rifle was loaded and pulled the trigger.
"Edward claims that he heard a shot and felt a pain in his side," Cisek reported.
His friend checked the wound, then got scared about getting into trouble and begged Edward not to tell his parents. They didn't hear the sound of the rifle firing because they were playing loud music.
Edward went home later and fell asleep without telling anyone about the wound. After he awoke Sunday, Edward complained to his grandmother that he fell on ice.
"He was taken to the ER where doctors found a bullet lodged in Edward's lower back after a CAT Scan was performed," Cisek reported. "Edward then told the doctor and his family what had really happened."

Cell phone searchers are much more likely to be hunting down porn than desktop surfers. In fact, 20% of all mobile search queries are for adult content vs. 8.5% on the desktop (which, by the way, inadvertently lets slip the percentage of porn searches on Google that Larry Page tried not to reveal to Time Magazine just recently).
