Dude, check out where his hand is...
A flame from a candle inside a Port St. John home somehow ignited a woman's hair as she tried to blow it out, which then caused a fire that spread to her home.
When Brian and Angela Hausler moved from St. Louis to Bonne Terre in 2004, they didn't know many people in the southeastern Missouri town. Maybe that's why they were so quick last year to befriend Tina Vazquez, a mother of two who had recently separated from her husband.

Checkout the US Marine Corps' newest weapon, recently introduced to Regimental Combat Team 5, the M-32 six-shot 40mm grenade launcher:
The M-32 is a modified Milkor MGL-140 with additional features like the buttstock, sights, foregrip, et. al. It can put all 6 rounds on target in under 3 seconds, and can fire "normal" M433 40mm grenades or specialty rounds.
Specialty rounds include HELLHOUND rounds with twice the lethal radius of the M433, which will breach doors and kill anything behind them; DRACO thermobaric rounds; and even HUNTIR rounds with cameras in them that descend on a parachute and send back video. The USMC will join the Brazilian, Italian and South African militaries as MGL-140 customers, and Defense Review notes that the USMC has ordered 9,000 of them.

Texas has begun sending undercover agents into bars to arrest drinkers for being drunk.
Being in a bar does not exempt one from the state laws against public drunkenness, Beck said. The goal, she said, was to detain drunks before they leave a bar and go do something dangerous like drive a car.
"We feel that the only way we're going to get at the drunk driving problem and the problem of people hurting each other while drunk is by crackdowns like this," she said.
"There are a lot of dangerous and stupid things people do when they're intoxicated, other than get behind the wheel of a car," Beck said. "People walk out into traffic and get run over, people jump off of balconies trying to reach a swimming pool and miss."
Damn, people are jumping off balconies and hitting concrete?!? That is problem. That would totally kill the mood of the party (no pun intended). Article here.
New research shows that smoking increases the risk of impotence/erectile dysfunction.
He added that the more cigarettes smoked, the greater the risk of suffering from a sexual performance problem. But even men who smoked less than 20 cigarettes a day, had a 24 percent raised risk of impotence.
"It is not just older men who suffer from impotence, younger men are also affected as well," Millett added in an interview. The findings, reported on Thursday in the journal Tobacco Control, are based on a survey of 8,000 men in Australia aged between 16 and 59 who took part in a study of health and relationships.
Almost one in 10 reported an impotence/erectile dysfunction problem lasting more than a month during the previous year.
About a quarter were smokers and more than 6 percent said they got through over 20 cigarettes a day. Men who smoked more than a pack or more a day were 39 percent more likely to report sexual problems, according to the study.
Damn, if this isn’t a good reason for guys to stop smoking… I don’t know what is. Article here.
It took a leisurely 70 years after King Gillette invented the safety razor for someone to come up with the idea that twin blades might be—or, at least sell—better. Since then, the pace of change has accelerated, as blade after blade has been added to razors in an attempt to tech-up the “shaving experience”.
For the most cynical shavers, this evolution is mere marketing. Twin blades seemed plausible. Three were a bit unlikely. Four, ridiculous. And five seems beyond the pale. Few people, though, seem willing to bet that Gillette's five-bladed Fusion is the end of the road for razor-blade escalation. More blades may seem impossible for the moment—though strictly speaking the Fusion has six, because it has a single blade on its flip-side for tricky areas—but anyone of a gambling persuasion might want to examine the relationship between how many blades a razor has, and the date each new design was introduced.
So what does the future hold? With only five data-points, it is hard to be sure exactly which mathematical curve is being followed. If it is what is known as a power law, then the 14-bladed razor should arrive in 2100. Click here to read the full article detailing ‘Moore’s law for razor blades’…
