Having a bad day?

I have had my share of bad luck days but I have never heard of anyone as accident prone as this guy:

Cook got off to a poor start in life, and it never got any better. Cook's accident-proneness started before he was born. He nearly died before birth as his mother nearly miscarried. As a child he suffered many serious accidents. He broke his collarbone, suffered brain hemorrhage due to a playground accident, had his spleen removed due to an injury playing touch football.

He then had a go cart accident while a teen, a near-fatal car accident before attending university, and spent five months in a come due to another car accident while at university. While employed as a computer programmer, Cook broke his back three times and broke ribs in various car accidents and falls. To his credit, he fought back from serious injury to regain his health.

Caught by the balls

Mario Visnjic got a nasty surprise after swimming naked of Valalta beach in Croatia:

His testicles had shrunk while he was in the cool sea and slipped through the wooden slats when he sat back down on his wooden deckchair.

But as he lay in the sun for some time they expanded back to their normal size and got stuck between the narrow strips of wood.

All is well that ends well; he managed to get loose after calling beach maintenance services.


1 in 3 Italian parlamentaries are on drugs

I have long suspected this, but now it is official. One in three members of the Italian parliament use drugs:

ROME, Oct. 12, 2006 — Imagine if 15 American congressmen tested positive for using cocaine.
Then another dozen were found to have smoked hash. And then imagine that the evidence came from an experiment by a television show.
Well, it's happened in Italy after a popular TV program that specializes in satire took it to another level.
No strangers to scandal, or backlash, the nation's honorable members of parliament are front-page news again. This time, over drug use and abuse.
The results indicated that of the 50 tested, close to a third had indulged within the previous 36 hours — four tested positive for cocaine, 12 for marijuana.

Commies on drugs, where will this end…



They don't call them "airbags" for nothing;

A Bulgarian woman driver escaped relatively unscathed from a head-on pile-up with another vehicle when her 40DD breast implants absorbed most of the impact, Ananova reports.

Elena Marinova, 24, of Sofia, pranged her motor in the northern city of Ruse. Both cars were written off and the other driver seriously injured, local paper Standart reported.

A police expert explained: "[The implants] worked just like airbags - protecting the victim's ribs and vital organs from damage." He did, however, add: "They are not as safe as the real thing because they exploded, which airbags are not supposed to do."

Smokers; R.I.P.

A different kind of anti smoking campaign:

Not sure if it makes you stop smoking or smoke faster to get out of the room...
