Dude gets hit by a train because he was to busy text messaging.

Officials think that Zachariah Smith was so engrossed in sending a text message Monday that he didn't notice a train - until it hit him as he crossed tracks in Elmwood Place.

Smith, 18, was waiting to cross the tracks. The gates were down to allow a CSX train to continue its southbound route. When that train passed, Smith, apparently too intent on texting, was hit by a northbound Norfolk Southern train that he didn't see coming from the other direction. He was thrown about 50 feet. » Full article here

Old people like to have sex as much as young people.

Many older Americans routinely engage in vaginal intercourse, oral sex and masturbation, a landmark study into a long-taboo subject reported Wednesday.

"From a societal perspective, I would say that old people are young people later in life," said Dr. Stacy Tesler Lindau, lead author of the federally funded study, which was published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Among the survey's many discoveries was that about half of those 57 to 75 years of age who remained sexually active reported engaging in oral sex.

More than half of men and a quarter of women said they had masturbated during the previous year, a figure that remained constant whether they were sexually active or not. The figure on masturbation "reflects a level of sexual need, even among men at very advanced ages, and speaks to the fact that sexuality is a lifelong proposition," said Edward O. Laumann, a study co-author and a sociologist at the University of Chicago.

But not for everybody. Thirty-five percent of women versus 13 percent of men rated sex as "not at all important." » Article here
