This is awesome. Just freakin’ awesome.

Man took 40,000 ecstasy pills in 9 years

Doctors from London University have revealed details of what they believe is the largest amount of ecstasy ever consumed by a single person.

A British man estimated to have taken around 40,000 pills of MDMA, the active ingredient in ecstasy, over nine years. The heaviest previous lifetime intake on record is 2,000 pills.

Though the man, who is now 37, stopped taking the drug seven years ago, he still suffers from severe physical and mental health side-effects, including extreme memory problems, paranoia, hallucinations and depression. He also suffers from painful muscle rigidity around his neck and jaw which often prevents him from opening his mouth. The doctors believe many of these symptoms may be permanent.

The man, known as Mr A in the report in the scientific journal Psychosomatics, started using ecstasy at 21. For the first two years his use was an average of five pills per weekend. Gradually this escalated until he was taking around three and a half pills a day. At the peak, the man was taking an estimated 25 pills every day for four years. After several severe collapses at parties, Mr A decided to stop taking ecstasy. For several months, he still felt he was under the influence of the drug, despite being bedridden.

Damn dude. You’d think after a while the pill wouldn’t have any effect on your body at all. Crazy. Read the full article here.

Look. I’m on fire and so is my bike!

Sex with 13-year-old, 28 times in 1 week

Meet Rachel Holt. The 34-year-old Delaware teacher is facing rape charges for allegedly having sex with a 13-year-old student 28 times during a one-week period last month.
Holt, a science teacher at Claymont Elementary School, allegedly had sex with the boy, a student in her class, at her Wilmington home. According to a probable cause affidavit filed today in Justice of the Peace Court, the boy's father contacted cops yesterday afternoon and told them his child was having "inappropriate contact" with Holt.

Holt admitted she had intercourse with the boy 27 times and performed oral sex once during the last week of March. She also revealed that another student, 12, had watched her having sex with the boy and that she had provided both boys with beer. Holt is being held in a local lockup in lieu of $560,450 bail.

Sex with a 13-year-old? On top of that, she had sex with him 28 times in one week? That means you’d be having sex at least 4 times a day for all 7 days of the week? That's insane! Do pornstars even have 'hook' up this much in a week? Crazy! Article and documents here.

Hmm, I wonder what the bear did next?

Paperweight severs teacher's hand, ouch

A teacher who kept a 40 mm shell on his desk as a paperweight blew off part of his hand when he apparently used the object to try to squash a bug.

The 5-inch-long shell exploded Monday while Robert Colla was teaching 20 to 25 students at an adult education class.

Part of Colla's right hand was severed and he suffered severe burns and minor shrapnel wounds to his forearms and torso. No one else was injured. He was reported in stable condition at a hospital.

The teacher slammed the shell down in an attempt to kill something that was buzzing or crawling across the desk, said Fire Marshal Glen Albright. Colla found the 40 mm round while hunting years ago and "obviously he didn't think the round was live," said Dennis Huston, who teaches computer design alongside Colla.

This guy’s not very smart for being a teacher. Ouch. Article here.

Who wins? Fast forward to the middle.

Lacrosse Duke student rapes stripper?

Shortly after an exotic dancer claimed she was raped at a Duke University lacrosse team party, a member of the squad sent an e-mail announcing that the following night he planned "to have some strippers over" and would be "killing the bitches" as soon as they walked into his dorm room.
Disclosure of the e-mail came today with the unsealing of a March 27 search warrant for the residence of Ryan McFadyen, a sophomore lacrosse player. McFadyen is pictured at right in his team headshot. According to the warrant, a copy of which you'll find below,
here was provided to Durham cops by a confidential source who received the correspondence from McFadyen's Duke e-mail account at 1:58 AM on March 14.
According to the dancer, she was attacked earlier that morning at a team party (the woman and another dancer had been hired for $400 to perform at a home rented by three of the squad's captains). The e-mail from McFadyen's account notes that, after the strippers were killed, they would be skinned while the author was "cumming in my duke issue spandex." The e-mail is signed "41," which is McFadyen's jersey number.

Jessica Simpson in Baywatch movie?

The Sun UK is reporting that Jessica Simpson is set to star in the movie version of the show Baywatch. Jessica is suppose to take the role that Pamela Anderson use to play. Incase your wondering, David Hasselhoff is probably going to be in it (I know, huge sigh of relief).

A source said: “Jessica really caught the eye in The Dukes of Hazzard film last summer. She was the unanimous choice for the Baywatch role. Jessica has all the assets to make Pamela Anderson’s part her own.”

I’m going to go ahead and guarantee that this movie will have one hell of a complicated plot. Aaaannnnd I’m totally being sarcastic when I say that. What I really wonder is do they need to structure the movie around a plot at all? No seriously. Does it really matter? They could have a movie in which all they do is run on the beach in slow motion and do ‘stimulating/strategic’ poses, and people would get the same out of it. In fact, it might do better. Just a suggestion. I expect full credit if they end up doing this. Which they won’t. But they should. Whatever. I’m done wasting my time talking about this.

Mmmm… why?

Man sends bomb for penis enlargement?

A man pleaded guilty to weapons of mass destruction charges for sending a mail bomb to a Chicago surgeon he said botched his penile enlargement surgery.

Brett R. Steidler, 25, of Reamstown, Pa., mailed the explosive device in February 2005 because he was "extremely unhappy with the results" of the $8,000 surgery.

But Steidler alerted authorities before the bomb arrived and it was retrieved from the mail and disarmed. His attorney, Luis A. Ortiz, said Steidler is mentally ill and noted the difference between the roughly 2-year sentence for mailing a letter bomb and the 4- to 8-year sentence for using a weapon of mass destruction.

"You shouldn't group this guy with people who drive truck loads of explosives to buildings or gather anthrax or do things for political reasons," Ortiz said. Sentencing is scheduled July 7 before U.S. District Judge Lawrence F. Stengel.

Botched penile enlargement surgery huh? Damn, that sucks. Article here.

Weeeee!! Jumpin' little kitty dude!

Drunk woman sneaks into police car

A 20-year-old woman who climbed into the back seat of a parked squad car was arrested for public intoxication by an officer who opened the door to let her out.

Two men told Officer Brandon Lopossa at the back door of Bloomington police headquarters early Friday that they saw a woman climb into a squad car. Lopossa checked the vehicles in the parking lot and saw a woman with her hands and face pressed against the window of one of the cars.
He opened the door to let the woman out. She did not know the back doors of squad cars cannot be opened from the inside, the report said. The report said she appeared to be "very intoxicated."
Lopossa placed Lauren Yoder in the back of another squad car and took her to Bloomington Hospital for a checkup because of her "high level of intoxication," the report said. Yoder pleaded guilty to charges of public intoxication and illegal consumption of alcohol.

So let me get this straight… she just willingly (mistakenly) got into a cop car? The po-po weren’t even after her? Damn, that sucks! Article here.

Break bricks on my head? Sure, why not!

Man kills his dad with a meat cleaver?

A San Francisco man has been convicted of murder and mayhem for using a meat cleaver to castrate and kill his father, whom he blamed for coddling him and fostering his drug addiction.

Residents of the Graywood Hotel on Mission Street heard the father's screams for help in the midst of the savage attack. He was stabbed 37 times, castrated and his eyes stabbed in a case that police said was one of the most horrific crime scenes in recent memory. The defendant, who did not testify at the trial, freely admitted killing his father out of rage. His attorney, Stephen Rosen, did not return calls seeking comment.

According to prosecutors, the family did everything they could for Jan Erickson to have a better life. His parents, wanting the best education for their children, moved to Kentfield in suburban Marin County. The father sold health food supplements, and the family lived in a rental unit.

He said he loved his father but was tired of his own plight, sick of fighting people in the neighborhood and sick of his father's lectures. At the same time, he resented his father taking care of him and blamed his father for his troubles.

He faces a sentence of 15 years to life in prison.

This is awful. Article here.

Desperate Housewives the video game?

Walt Disney Co.'s Buena Vista Games Inc. said on Friday it plans to release a PC video game based on the popular television show "Desperate Housewives" this fall.

In the game, players take on the role of a new Wisteria Lane housewife, who can uncover or create new scandals on the seemingly idyllic street where the show takes place.

"Sometimes you just want to be more in that world than you can be on TV," said Mary Schuyler, the game's lead producer, who added that players will be able to pick their own in-game persona. "You can be as nice or as mean as you'd like to be," she said.

Schuyler said she hopes the "Desperate Housewives" title will be a hit with the show's female fans and convert some of them into gamers.

I may eat these words in the future… but I really don’t think girls will even be interesting in playing this game. Desperate Housewives the game? I can’t wait to see this video game flop hard on its face. Article here.

Jamie Lynn Spears turns 15 years-old

Jamie Lynn Spears turned 15 years old yesterday, and that means she only has 3 years left until she is officially legal. Why do I know this? My friend Matt is obsessed with her. He tells me about it. It's weird.

She's 15. He’s 21 years old.

Weird I know. Let’s all just hope she doesn't follow in the footsteps of her sister. These pictures are from her Allison Leach photo shoot. Again, she’s only 15…

You have a sixth sense, no really you do

In addition to the familiar five senses—touch, sight, smell, hearing, and taste—scientists know of a sixth sense called proprioception.

It 's the sense of where your body is in space that allows you to touch your nose even with your eyes closed. Proprioception (PRO-pree-oh-ception) also informs balance and how to put one foot in front of the other to walk without looking at your feet.

Scientists have recently discovered some neurons that possibly regulate stretch receptors which tell the body how to move. For patients with Parkinson 's disease, these stretch receptors are thought to be involved in the loss of movement control, so finding a neuron that can tweak these signals could be a step towards developing new Parkinson 's treatments.
