Doctor told him he was going to die, dude spends all his money, Doctors tell him they were wrong.

A British man who went on a wild spending spree after doctors said he only had a short time to live wants compensation because the diagnosis was wrong and he is now healthy -- but broke.

John Brandrick, 62, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer two years ago and told that he would probably die within a year. He quit his job, sold or gave away nearly all his possessions, stopped paying his mortgage and spent his savings dining out and going on holiday.

Brandrick was left with little more than the black suit, white shirt and red tie that he had planned to be buried in when it emerged a year later that his suspected "tumor" was no more than a non-life threatening inflammation of the pancreas.

"I'm really pleased that I've got a second chance in life... but if you haven't got no money after all this, which is my fault -- I spent it all -- they should pay something back." (Reuters)

Too drunk to drive? Call a 'tow-truck-taxi'.

A hundred dollar ride home may not seem like much of a bargain. But it beats a drunk-driving arrest. At least that's the thinking behind the No DUI Tonight service being offered by a Chicago-area towing company. Bar-hoppers who've had a little too much can call the Smith Companies.

The tow truck operator will send a wrecker to give both the car and driver a lift home. The service costs 85 bucks plus two dollars a mile. But Naperville police Captain Gary Bolt doesn't know if it will catch on. He notes a cab ride is a lot cheaper and more comfortable. Article here.

Is MTV headed for the 'What Ever Happened To' list?

Is MTV headed for the "What Ever Happened To ? " list, alongside the kids from "Diff'rent Strokes" and Adam and the Ants? Once the Goliath of pop music and youth marketing, once the czar of hip , feeding irony and experimental-film techniques to the masses, MTV has become a cable outlet for booty-driven reality TV. In 2007, some 26 years after MTV defined a generation or two, all MTV has to say for itself is "My Super Sweet 16."
The mighty MTV has stumbled, and it's twisting around like empty bubbles going down the "Real World XVIII" hot-tub drain. There was a time in the 1980s and '90s when the channel had the ballast to send an act to the top of the Billboard charts, but "American Idol" is the new boss. There was a time when the word "clip" meant an MTV video with artistic and commercial punch, but now the word refers to the virals that ricochet through YouTube. And there was a time when a band had no future without MTV exposure, but now a MySpace page or a position on iTunes is more essential. When it comes to the buzz biz, MTV is out of the loop.

3 dudes injured from being towed behind truck on couch

An annual ritual of riding a couch that is being towed behind a pick-up truck across a pasture proved to be a bad idea for three men early Sunday morning.

The Pierce County Sheriff's Department reported that at around 1:30 a.m. Joseph Schoeder, 21, was driving a Chevrolet pick-up truck across a pasture towing a couch. Timothy, 21, Cole 21, Bradley 24, were thrown from the couch when it flipped.

Johnson was airlifted by Life Link helicopter to Regions Hospital in St. Paul, Minn., where he is in serious condition, according to a hospital spokesperson. "They do this every year," said Sheriff Nancy Hove, "It's kind of their fishing season opening weekend ritual, just that no one has gotten hurt before." (RiverTowns.net)

Father & Son arrested for bank robbery

A 50-year-old Milwaukee man and his 27-year-old son were arrested for an armed bank robbery.

According to police, the son entered the bank carrying a cloth bag. He walked up to a teller window, pushed the bag toward her and told her to fill it. He then grabbed the bag and ran out the door. The father was apparently waiting in a vehicle, which was spotted on a surveillance camera in a nearby business parking lot. After officers pulled the two out of the car, the father allegedly said: "What did we do? I didn't have no gun or nothing."

The father told police he had simply dropped his son off at the bank to use the bathroom and then drove off to buy snacks at an area gas station. But when officers asked why he would not have just taken his son to the gas station with him to use the bathroom, the man alleged admitted to the deed.

The father reportedly told officers that he did not plan to do the robbery but for the last two weeks, his son has been asking about a prior bank robbery the father committed in 1995, asking for details and ideas on committing one. The son told officers that he had every intention of splitting the stolen cash with his father because the man is "a good Samaritan." (WauwatosaNow)
