Explosive balloons blow roof off car
Bay News 9 | Submitted by: JWSmythe
Two candidates for the "Darwin Awards" filled 10 party balloons with Acetylene, for 4th of July celebrations. After filling the balloons, put them in their car, to drive out and blow up somewhere. Apparently failing to read the OSHA documenation on Acetylene, which says things on the order of: "Using acetylene at pressures in excess of 15 psi gauge pressure is a hazardous practice. Free gaseous acetylene is potentially unstable at pressures above 15 psi and could decompose with explosive violence." On closing their car doors, exactly such an environment was created. The balloons exploded, blasting out the windows, tearing off the car's roof, and sending both occupants flying. Both men survived with burns, bruises, and eardrum damage.

Wire Services | Submitted by: D. Rango
What about doctor-patient confidentiality? Evil mega-chain Walgreens sends a one-month supply of Prozac worth $63 to Florida woman. "The Prozac mailings may mark the first time a powerful prescription drug was sent to patients neither expecting nor wanting new pills." The woman is pissed-off. A lawsuit is filed. Of course, the drug-maker, Walgreens officials and doctors all clam up.

Why Elizabeth became a teenage media whore
Salt Lake City Weekly | Submitted by: Mickey Knox
"There’s always a void in cable news for a heart-wrenching tragedy that can be turned into a national story. Once cable begins fixating on such a tale, other news organizations figure everyone is buzzing about it and they better get on the case. It is a mysterious process because, sadly, there are hundreds of other cases of missing children that deserve attention. But these circumstances seem to have captured the imagination of television executives."

Daily Southtown | Submitted by: f00f
"The past 18 months, his office has had to deal with seven deceased people each weighing in at more than 500 pounds... [West] said dealing with bodies weighing more than 300 pounds places his staff in jeopardy as well because they can't lift the heavy deceased."

I have three questions... 1. Does Smoking Marijuana make you THAT STUPID? 2. Why is there a weapon in the living room? 3. Why does a blind man own a crossbow?

Monster of Florence is back for the Dead
London Telegraph | Submitted by: Phatlor
"A series of attacks on corpses in an Italian mortuary may be the work of long dormant serial killer known as the Monster of Florence, police believe... Driven by reports that five corpses had been mutilated in eight days, many visitors were loath to leave their dead relatives alone. Some have mounted all-day vigils beside the coffins."

SS killer walks
Mirror | Submitted by: Phatlor
An SS chief was convicted yesterday, but then set free because of his advanced age of 93 years. "Engel selected Italians to be shot and ordered them to be chained up in groups of six. They were made to walk a plank over an open grave dug by Jewish prisoners and then gunned down." Would the court release Hitler just because he's a strapping 113? He doesn't look a day over 108.
