Even though its fake, it still creeps me out.


[ouch] Dude gets a javelin through his leg.

Ryan McGeeney, a budding journalist and photographer shooting from the sidelines of a track meet in Utah. McGeeney was actually standing on the field of competition and attempting to shoot photos of the discus competition.
"It basically came from about my seven o'clock or eight o'clock," he said. Right before it hit, the official started to say 'Look out! Look out!' and I started to look over to the javelin right when it went through. There was the kind of tight feeling in the skin where I could say, 'oh yeah, it went through me,' but it wasn't real painful."

Astonishingly, the javelin missed all tendons, bones, and arteries in McGeeney's leg, lodging through the skin like the world's most extreme but benign piercing. McGeeney got a good patching up at a local hospital, but not before calling a co-worker over and snapping photos of the damage himself as a Marine who served a tour of duty in Afghanistan would.

Dude in car throws bottle after being called name for listening to Mariah Carey.

A man who allegedly threw a bottle at another motorist who called him a derogatory name for blaring Mariah Carey music while stopped for a red light in North Naples was arrested on felony charges over the weekend, according to Collier County sheriff's deputies.

A black Honda pulled up next to them and the passenger, William H. Greenman, 22, yelled at Schreiber, calling him a derogatory name for listening to Mariah Carey, reports said. Schreiber and Greenman
exchanged profanities as both cars continued west on Pine Ridge road.

Greenman ducked, but the bottle struck the driver of the Honda, Christine Bec, 21, on the right side of her head, reports said. She was not injured, reports said.

At least he's honest... right?


Dudes invent 'ski and pee' video game. WTF?

Two Belgian beer fans have launched a video game named 'Place to Pee', which allows players to slalom down ski slopes or kill aliens while relieving themselves at urinals.

Werner Dupont, a software developer, and Bart Geraets, an electrical engineer, got the idea while drinking Belgian trappist beers, they told Reuters Television at a local festival on Sunday.

Two dudes duel it out with tasers.

It wasn't exactly pistols at 30 paces, but police say a security company supervisor and a restaurateur shot each other with Tasers in a "bonehead" confrontation over parking.

Dane told police he was afraid Epstein was going to hit him with a 2-foot-long pair of bolt cutters. Epstein told police he had only tried to remove the boot with the bolt cutters and hadn't threatened anyone with them.

Epstein told police Dane put his hand on a holstered pistol and threatened to shoot him. Dane told The Associated Press by telephone that he did put his hand on the holstered pistol but never threatened to shoot Epstein.

Both men drew Tasers. "They shot each other," Police Sgt. Pat Wyton told the Camera newspaper. "It was just kind of a bonehead deal."


Immediately after writing this letter, this man saw a blue shell and his head exploded.

Dude dies in spitting contest with friends.

A man died when he fell from a hotel balcony during a spitting match with a friend, a Swiss newspaper has reported.

The daily Blick said the 29-year-old man took a run-up from inside the room so he could spit further, but lost his balance and plummeted 6.4m to the street below. He died in hospital.

The man had suggested the contest when he and two friends returned from a disco to their hotel in Cadempino in Switzerland's Italian-speaking Ticino canton in the early hours. One of the men went to sleep, but the two others decided to see who could spit furthest from the balcony of their room.


'Ugh, we're never gonna hit 88mph, on these side streets!'


Dude bites into bolt while dining at Outback Steakhouse

When James Fetters began eating a cup of potato soup at an Outback Steakhouse three weeks ago, he expected to taste bits of bacon, chopped chives and melted cheese. Instead, he bit into a 2-inch industrial bolt, leaving him with more than a bad taste in his mouth.

The bolt chipped Fetters’ left front tooth, he said, carving away part of the enamel and causing a slight pain in his tooth as he breathes. He wants Outback to pay for the damage, and said he feels the restaurant hasn’t made much of an effort to help him. An Outback Steakhouse corporate official said the company is willing to pay for Fetters’ dental procedures.
