One really sweet ass back-flip...

Mike Metzger put his name in the Guinness Book of World Records by becoming the first to backflip over the fountains of Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas.

Teen says friends asked to be hit with car?

A 17-year-old boy who police said asked a friend to hit him with a car "for fun" was still hospitalized Tuesday with a broken leg.

His friend, Stephen D. Domonkos, 18, told police that Morris on Saturday night asked him to hit him with his car, something they had done before. He told police that Morris was "an adrenaline junkie."

Domonkos was driving about 25 mph when the car hit Morris, shattering the windshield, in the parking lot of a Chesterton restaurant where Domonkos works.

Domonkos was charged with felony criminal recklessness. If convicted, he could face six months to three years in jail.

Michael Morris, a junior at Chesterton High School, was in fair condition at Porter hospital, spokeswoman Robin Carlascio said. "I won't do this no more," Morris of Chesterton told The Times of Munster. Article here.

Store owner survives being shot in head?

A 40-year-old East St. Louis store owner is conscious and talking after being shot in the head during a robbery early Monday.

Police say three men wearing masks went into the man's store and shot him, and then ordered him to open the cash register. When the man said he couldn't open the register because he couldn't get up, the men allegedly hit him with a weapon and tried to open the register themselves.

When they couldn't get it open, police say they took a large amount of liquor and then fled.

The store owner was found by customers. Police say he is in serious condition at an area hospital. Article here.

David Beckham's sex strategy for a girl

David and Victoria Beckham will try having sex standing up in an attempt to guarantee they have a baby girl and not a fourth boy.

The Real Madrid star is said to be keen on having a baby girl and willing to try anything in order to get what he wants.

"He's found out through talking to people that you have more chance of conceiving a girl if you do things like have sex standing up on certain days of the month," a source told Grazia magazine.

It is also reported that Victoria has already picked a name for a baby girl- Luna. Article here.

I really wonder how this old wives' tale came to be true. Who noticed that girls popped out of women when people had sex standing up?

Customers gas up for $0.002 a gallon?

A mistake at an Plainfield, Indiana Shell gas station for regular unleaded pumps allowed people to fill up for just pennies. Gas at the station was supposed to be $2.75 a gallon, but customers pulled up to the pumps to find a price of $.002 a gallon.

The mistake was discovered early Tuesday morning, but several customers had already gotten away with a drastically low price fill-up.
The gas station is not exactly sure how many people took advantage of the situation. Since customers paid at the pump, clerks did not have face-to-face contact with the customers.

Driver Kenneth Krebs said he couldn't believe what he saw that allowed him to fill up his truck for 7 cents.

"I pulled into that gas station, put my card in to get gas and hit the 87 octane button and it came up like two-hundredths of a cent," said driver Kenneth Krebs. "So, I proceeded in filling up my truck."

A woman went into the store and told the clerk what was going on, showing her receipt for a few cents for several gallons of gas. That woman offered to come back into the store later Tuesday to pay the difference.

The gas station is trying to determine if it can go back and charge the people who got the bargain regular price after the fact. Article here.

Sexual text messages for teens?

San Francisco just launched the nation's first text-messaging program aimed to shoot instant cellphone messages to sexually active young people seeking advice about sex and health. The service focuses on everything from what to do "if ur condom broke" to whom to call "if ur feeling down ... like u wanna xcape ur life."

Written in the abbreviated style of text messaging, SexInfo is open to anyone with cellphone text messaging. But it is aimed at sexually active 12- to 24-year-olds in San Francisco, especially blacks, whose rates of sexually transmitted diseases have increased in the past year, says Jacqueline McCright of the San Francisco Department of Public Health.

Kids, McCright says, "often do not get accurate information from their friends, and many times their parents don't discuss sexual issues with them. This is a way that they can get quick, easy information confidentially."

The service, based on a London program that launched in 2004, provides instant, automated responses to specific questions about pregnancy, HIV, sex and depression. Kids send a text message to 36617 (Metro PCS users use a different number) with the word "SexInfo." They are then sent a list of codes from which to choose.

Student sings song about shooting teacher

A high school student was suspended for five days after singing a spoof of "On Top of Ol' Smokey" that includes lyrics about shooting a teacher.

Beth Ann Cox, 16, a junior at Peachtree Ridge High School, said she had been humming the song during German class but denied singing loudly or directing the lyrics at her teacher, Phil Carroll.

"I'd had a song stuck in my head all day, like the tune of it," she said. "This kid in front of me asked me about the song. So I told him the words. I didn't say them loudly."

The song includes the lyrics: "On top of Ol' Smokey, all covered with blood, I shot my poor teacher with a .44 slug."

Administrators pulled Cox out of class later Friday and asked why she had threatened her teacher. She was suspended Monday. Cox has had differences with the teacher in the past, said her mother, Suzanne Cox.

"We feel that Dr. Carroll has some kind of a vendetta out for our daughter. And he used this to take a stand against her," Suzanne Cox said.

Sloan Roach, spokeswoman for the school district, about 30 miles northeast of Atlanta, said the suspension was "appropriate disciplinary action" for disrupting class. Article here.
