Woman swallows razor blade in sandwich?
Northern Indiana police are investigating a woman's claim that a razor blade in a fish sandwich she ate cut the inside of her throat.
Lisa Griffin, 35, claims she bought the sandwich Monday at Rally's Hamburgers, brought it home, took three bites, threw up blood and found a double-edged razor in her vomit. She was in good condition Thursday at St. Joseph Medical Center in South Bend, spokesman Mike Stack said.
Police said the throat injuries appeared to be consistent with razor cuts.
Craig Banser, who operates several Rally's in the South Bend area, said the restaurant in Mishawaka set aside food products used at the time so police could check them and called suppliers.
"We haven't heard anything since," he said. "We're just waiting to hear from police to see what they've found out."This makes me cringe even thinking about this. Article here.
Family kicked out of buffet, wasting food
Wendy Dershem, a Des Moines woman, and boyfriend and her two children were kicked out of a restaurant last week after management at Dragon House accused her of leaving too much food on her plate.
Dershem said she paid for her buffet on Saturday but was abruptly told to leave after eating one plate of food.
Employees said they had been watching her family on previous trips to the restaurant and were fed up with her habits. They said she would pile her plate with food, take one bite and throw it away.
"They just take one bite and throw it away," said cashier Lin Huyen. "They take four egg rolls and crab ragoon, take one bite of egg roll and throw the whole plate. That is wasting food."
Dershem said she was shocked by the scolding and complained to management when she paid her check.
Dragon House manager Kent Cao said his restaurant does not offer an all-you-can waste buffet. He said Dershem's family took food, didn't finish it and then piled on the same food again, he said. He says he won't allow her back in the restaurant unless she changes her ways. Article here.

Surgery gives woman a new vagina? WTF?
A new trend in cosmetic surgery offers to some women the opportunity to improve their sex lives or to look better in a place most people find uncomfortable to talk about.
Gynecologist Dr. Ronald Blatt, is offering vaginoplasty surgery, "We tighten the vagina -- increasing the friction, increasing the sensation."
The cosmetic surgery procedure is called vaginal rejuvenation -- the most private of makeovers performed nationwide.
After having six kids, Kim Hernandez, of Texas, underwent the procedure as an anniversary present for her husband. "You have to do what is right for you. I know this isn't holding my marriage together; this is something added," Hernandez said.
Blatt has performed vaginal rejuvenation for four years, and he got the idea from seeing another doctor's magazine advertisement.
Blatt's office takes calls from all over the U.S. and the world inquiring about vaginoplasty, as well as a different procedure called labiaplasty.
"Labiaplasty is a reduction or the recontouring of the small lips on the outside of the vagina, called the labia minora," Blatt said.
When asked why patients seek the procedure, Blatt explained, "This is done for cosmetic reasons, people don't like the way they look. ... Women report more healthier, happier sex lives, and their husbands notice a big difference, too."Uh... well this is interesting. Article here.

Underage drinking is worth $23 billion!
Underage drinking is worth nearly $23 billion a year to the alcohol industry, or 17.5 percent of all money spent on spirits in the US annually, researchers from New York's Columbia University report.
And abusive drinking by both underage people and adults may account for nearly half of all money spent on alcohol each year.
"What we see here is that there is a large conflict of interest for the alcohol industry between profitability and public health," Susan E. Foster of The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia.
Underage drinking and alcoholism are tightly linked, Foster noted. People who start drinking before age 21 are twice as likely to become addicted to alcohol, while the risk of becoming an alcoholic is four times greater among those who begin drinking before their 15th birthday.
The researchers estimated the value of underage drinking as $22.5 billion, while adult abusive drinkers accounted for $25.8 billion. Together, the value of underage and abusive drinking was $48.3 billion, or 37.5 percent of the total. Using a different dataset, the value was estimated at $62.9 billion, or 48.8 percent of all money spent annually on alcohol.

Gator bites mans hand drags him in water
A real estate tycoon who owns a nature preserve tried to show off for visitors by jumping on an alligator's back for a ride, but the reptile bit his hand and dragged him into 15 feet of water.
The 8-foot alligator let go of Ronald Bergeron after witnesses pulled its tail. Bergeron, 62, suffered a shattered pinky, a broken ring finger and puncture wounds in his palm.
The multimillionaire developer tried the stunt Sunday while giving a tour of his 5,000-plus-acre preserve to weekend guests who had made large donations to the Boys & Girls Club.
I always tell them I'm going to wrestle an alligator," Bergeron said Wednesday. "It's part of my Florida cracker culture. My grandfather was a game warden in the Everglades, and I grew up around alligators." He said he usually rides the alligator for a minute before letting it go. This time, Bergeron said, "he was rolling and I couldn't keep control of his mouth. He grabbed my hand in his mouth."
Bergeron was pulled under the water before guests grabbed the alligator and pulled it out. Bergeron was driven to a hospital. Article here.
Child left at day care, its not a day care?
Police received a call from a woman who said another woman she didn't know had driven up to her home, handed her a baby boy and a diaper bag and left.
It turns out the woman was the baby's grandmother and thought she was dropping the baby off at day care, but she had the wrong address, officers said.
Police said the incident on Wednesday was a misunderstanding, and no charges will be filed. The infant was placed in foster care for several hours until his mother showed up at police headquarters after seeing pictures of her baby on television news.
This could have been a lot worse. Article here.
Woman has a 14-pound premature baby
A baby girl, who had grown so much inside her mother that she had to be delivered one month early, was born much heavier than average at 14 pounds.
Olivia, born on March 22 to Brandy Womack and Zack Patrick, is finally home after nearly a month spent in a hospital where doctors monitored her underdeveloped lungs and heart.
"Her newborn diapers didn't fit her," Womack told KXTV. "We had to take everything back and get it upgraded."
Medical staff decided Womack should deliver her daughter before full term when a sonogram in the seventh month showed she already weighed about 11 pounds, nine ounces. Doctors estimated that if Womack had carried Olivia for the full nine months, the baby could have reached about 16 pounds.
The baby was delivered by c-section, and doctors who have examined her found no medical conditions that explained her size.

'Hacking' into gas pumps for free gas?
At least two St. Louis gas station owners or managers say somebody is breaking into gas pumps, reprogramming interior keypads and instructing the machines to dispense fuel at no charge.
Kevin Tippit is manager of the Phillips 66 in St. Louis. Tippit says his boss lost between $6,000 and $10,000 worth of gas Friday before a regular customer tipped-off an employee.
"They (the thieves) have a key to the pump and then after they open up the pump they go in and they reprogram the pump, so they can have free gas. And then everybody behind them sees what they're doing, and they continue," says Tippit. "What it actually does is bypass our system," says Tippit. "It goes beyond the register and is drawing directly off the pumps."
While Tippit says he and his employees have keys to the gas pumps, they don't have codes to the interior keypads. He says the only people with those codes are employees of companies that service gas stations.
