Ship A Turd

Many years ago, I worked away from home. My boss was a cruel bully and when it came time for me to leave, he thought it was hilarious to aim a firehose at me from a range of four feet. I was badly shaken and vowed revenge. A few months later, I sent him a huge turd in a shoebox.

Now someone else takes the hard work out of sweet revenge.

Something Really Awful

I like reading the Something Awful forums, though their geeky intolerence sometimes irritates and there are clearly people on it who are, lets say, different. (And no, my house is not a bungalow!) I missed this entry though.

It appears that someone asked where to get buckshot and was told where.

Next day,

"William Freund, 19, left his home about 9 a.m. and drove less than 100 yards to a house, where he shot and killed 22-year-old Christina Smith and her 45-year-old father Vernon Smith with a shotgun, said Orange County Sheriff's Department spokesman Jim Amormino."

Here's a link to a thread where they realise what's happened, as well as links to other discussions.

Back From the Dead

"An 18-year-old girl, declared clinically dead in 1992, regained consciousness while being raped on a slab by a necrophiliac mortuary attendant in Bucharest. Police arrested the shocked rapist, but the parents refused to press charges because their daughter "owed her life to him."
