The Most Evil Device Ever?

Have you commited a crime lately? Are you on the run from the law? Be glad you don't have this micro-chip implanted. A Saudi Arabian scientist has filed for a patent for a "killer" tracking device, which would be used to trace fugitives from justice, terrorists, illegal immigrants, criminals, political opponents and more. The chip acts like a DPS tracker, but with the added bonus of being able to inject a deadly poison into anyone that becomes a security risk. The Story.

Your Daily Loser & Jury Duty for May 21st

Your Daily Loser - During an argument over Italian music, the wife poured beer on the husband's laptop, so he went postal... and during the fight, he fell on her. Six weeks later the wife died from chest injuries sustained when the husband fell on her, so he was arrested and tried for causing bodily injuries by negligence. The Story.

Jury Duty - The forty year-old son, who was getting drunk with his mom at 2:00 AM, decided he didn't like her attitude, so he whipped out the Taser and let her have it. The Story and the Mugshot.

Three hour car chase in East LA

For three long hours East LA police sat and watched this dude sit in his car. Not exciting enough? Just listen to the reporter.

Seriously, can you blame them?

A New Zealand couple asked their bank for a $NZ10,000 overdraft. The bank deposited $NZ10,000,000 into their account. Oops.
Now it's at least possible that this couple considered doing the right (or at least, legal) thing, by returning the money to the bank. But ultimately, they chose to seize the day - and the money - instead, and are now on the run, being pursued by NZ police and Interpol. (,27753,25515799-462,00.html)

From T-shirts to snack food; whose your main man?

Scary PSA

Good Lord! Is this an outtake from a horror film, or a public-service announcement?

Hayseed Dixie: Bluegrass tribute to AC/DC

The music itself is weird enough on its own, but add the Final Fantasy video and the weirdness just overflows.

No Smoking in Bismarck, North Dakota

And they mean it, too. Ron White, the popular comedian from the Blue Collar Comedy tour and various Comedy Central specials, is a whiskey-drinking, cigar-smoking redneck, and proud of it. He's included those two fundamental elements in all of his shows. But apparently grumpy people in North Dakota won't stand for that kind of blatant disregard for the law. This is one of those times where you wonder just how uptight Americans have become since Janet Jackson flashed a tit on prime time.
