Ouch - bet that makes your eyes water

Fateh Mohammad, a prison inmate in Pakistan, says he woke up last weekend with a glass light bulb in his anus.
On Wednesday night, doctors brought Mohammad's misery to an end after a one-and-a-half hour operation to remove the object.
'Thanks Allah, now I feel comfort. Today, I had my breakfast. I was just drinking water, nothing else,' Mohammad, a grey-beared man in his mid-40s, told Reuters from a hospital bed in the southern central city of Multan.
'We had to take it out intact,' said Dr. Farrukh Aftab at Nishtar Hospital. 'Had it been broken inside, it would be a very very complicated situation.'
Mohammad, who is serving a four-year sentence for making liquor, prohibited for Muslims, said he was shocked when he was first told the cause of his discomfort. He swears he didn't know the bulb was there.
'When I woke up I felt a pain in my lower abdomen, but later in hospital, they told me this,' Mohammad said.
'I don't know who did this to me. Police or other prisoners.'
The doctor treating Mohammad said he'd never encountered anything like it before, and doubted the felon's story that someone had drugged him and inserted the bulb while he was comatose.

Just what you need

Just think, you die, you're cremated (well not me, cos i don't like the thought of it) and then you grieving loved ones pack your ashes into a teddy bear shaped urn so they can hug you when your gone.

What's wrong with the Ed Gein approach - make a nice lampshade out of them - or if you're especially adventurous a coat and hand bag

And you thought Bush was the only dumbass

Lynn Westmoreland is a Congressman from Georgia who co-sponsored a bill to require the display of the Ten Commandments in the House of Representatives and the Senate. You'd think that if anyone should be able to recite them all it should be him.

Well apparently not, it's a case of 'do as I say, nopt as I do'
YouTube - Stephen Colbert and Congressman: ""

Win the argument by not saying a word - Lifehacker

If someone starts yelling to get their point across, don't respond -- just let them go on and on. Remain so silent that they eventually start wondering if you are even listening.

It doesn't matter what the issue was, you will have won the argument.

Isn't that the truth - it happened to me quite recently while cycling to work - some agressive idiot in a car threatened to run me over because he felt I had obstructed him from running a red light - He screamed and screamed, effing and blinding about how he was gonna kill me (not a very nice experience at 8 in the morning). But he was left looking like an idiot because I completely blanked him and opther passers by told him to shut up and stop acting like an idiot
