Dude falls backwards downstairs, breaks his $1M violin

David Garrett, tripped when leaving Barbican Hall after a violin performance. Unfortunately, he was carrying his 18th century violin and smashed it to pieces. Garrett had bought the 1772 violin for $1 million in 2003, and is devastated.

Apparently, he is in denial as well because he is hoping it can be repaired in New York. This was not exactly a graceful fall said witnesses. One witnesses said it was the most humorous thing he has ever seen. He recalled Garrett flipping around backwards, falling down the concrete stairs, and then screaming, "My violin." » Article here

Dude killed while trying to run over his g-friend on Valentine's Day

A man who tried to run over his girlfriend during a Valentine's Day argument was struck and killed by oncoming traffic in north Harris County as he ran from deputies across Interstate 45 late Thursday, authorities said.

Lara was being chased after he used a vehicle to try to run down his girlfriend at an apartment complex in the 15300 block of Ella Boulevard, deputies said.

The man made it across the freeway and deputies moved to the northbound side of the freeway. A cleaning woman at a nearby car dealership saw the man hiding behind cars in the lot. "As soon as he saw all the deputies coming, he started running back across the freeway and obviously did not make it," Harris County Sheriff's Department Sgt. S. Wolverton said.

A white Suburban hit the man first. The impact flung his sneakers off and threw him about 100 feet before he was struck a second time by a gray sports car. » Full article here

Vagina on front page of the student newspaper...

On Thursday, it was the labeled diagram of a vagina splashed across the front page of the student newspaper's Valentine's Day issue.

Flustered teachers rushed to confiscate the publication, but with some copies already in circulation and the Reseda campus in an uproar, it quickly became a hot read for the school's roughly 3,700 students.

The drawing in question ran under the hot-pink headline "Have a happy Vagina Day!" and the four-page edition included stories titled "Ending shame for nature's gift" and "Rejected!!!!!!!" The paper's editor-in-chief, 15-year-old Richard Edmond, said he was trying to raise awareness of violence against women with a lead story about playwright Eve Ensler's "Vagina Monologues." » Full story here
