Teen claims killing spiders alerted her of fire.

A woman who hates spiders is crediting them with helping save her from a house fire. Danielle Vigue, 18, says she awoke to find spiders in her room, and started killing them. When more showed up, she says she went across the hall and got into bed with her 15-year-old sister, Lauren.

"At first there were five, they were all around the light fixture," Danielle Vigue told The Saginaw News. "I hate spiders, they freak me out." A fire apparently was smoldering in the attic of the home.

A few hours later, Vigue's 48-year-old mother, Debra, and 8-year-old sister, Shelby, smelled smoke, and flames greeted the family when they opened the door to the room Danielle Vigue had earlier left. » Article here

Dude puts his girlfriend's son in dryer. WTF?

Twenty-nine year old Jared Monaco is accused of locking his girlfriend's 6-year-old son in a dryer for punishment. Investigators say the dryer was never turned on and the boy suffered no physical injuries.

Parent Staci Bemis says, "I can't imagine someone doing that to my 6-year-old son. It's frightening and wrong." Monaco says, "This is blown way out of proportion." Police say he claims he put the boy in the dryer for only a few seconds, but the boy apparently thought it was much longer.

Monaco is also facing allegations of beating the same boy with a belt. His attorney says his client maintains his innocence. » Article here

The iPhone is a piece of shit, and so is your face.


No, I'm not going to get an iPhone, quit emailing me about it. I'm not getting one because I already have a phone that's better: it's called the Nokia E70, it's the pinnacle of human achievement, and I love it more than my family.

First of all, the E70 has a full keyboard, not some shitty stripped down, tap-and-pray smudgy piece of shit. Nokia uses a technology that's even more advanced than the iPhone's tap screen, allowing you to actually feel the keys you press as you're pressing them! The technology is called "tactile response," and it allows you to do things like dial a phone number without staring at your screen like a shit-chucking ape. In fact, every other cellphone ever made has this technology, sometimes called "buttons."

Rugby player unaware of tooth embedded in his head.

An Australian rugby player says he's holding onto the tooth that was embedded in his head for more than three months, just to prove it actually happened.

Ben Czislowski kept competing for more than three months despite the headaches that started after a clash with an opponent. The incident happened on April first, and Czislowski had to have a head wound stitched up afterward. He later suffered an eye infection and complained of lethargy and shooting pains in his head. But it wasn't until last week that the doctor found the tooth. » Article here

[tragic] Girl dies while text messaging and driving

Text messages were sent back and forth on the cell phone of a 17-year-old driver moments before her sport-utility vehicle slammed head-on into a truck, killing her and four other recent high school graduates.

A text message was sent from the phone of the S.U.V. driver, Bailey E. Goodman, at 10:05:02 p.m., according to Sheriff Philip C. Povero of Ontario County, adding that a friend here sent a text message to Ms. Goodman’s phone asking, “What are you doing?”

Ms. Goodman had been driving her friends to her parents’ vacation home when her S.U.V., which had just passed the car, swerved back into oncoming traffic, hit a tractor-trailer and burst into flames. Five days earlier, the five teenagers had graduated from high school in Fairport, a Rochester suburb. » Article here
