Teenager slips into coma after his friend squeezed his testicles

A 17-year-old Dublin-based male has landed himself in a coma after his friend 'jokingly' squeezed his testicles, leading the teenager to suffer a heart attack at such a young age from teh sheer shock.

Dr. Irwin Goldstein, Urologist and Director of San Diego's Sexual Medicine said that it's definitely possible to suffer a heart attack from such a thing, as the trauma can release massive amounts of adrenaline. He said: "Yes, the testicles are exquisitely sensitive to touch and there is a huge release of adrenalin when there is excessive force applied to these organs. Testicular pain is referred to the lower abdomen, mesenteric plexus, and causes men to stop abruptly what they are doing, lie on the ground, close their eyes and bend their knees. A heart attack could certainly result from severe testicular pain from squeezing".

 

A source close to the family has said that the attack wasn't intended to cause harm, and that it was just a joke: "A school teacher and one of the youths performed CPR at the scene before the emergency services came which could have saved the teen's life".

8-bit Miata only starts if you put in quarters

Say what you want about the Miata, but the Miata and its newer MX-5 siblings are some of the most frequently raced cars in all of motorsports. Some see them as underpowered cars for hairdressers, but well driven they can be some of the fastest cars on a racetrack despite significantly less power than the competition.

A dude named Brian Young has purchased a Miata for $1000 with plans to turn the car into some sort of drift racer. As part of his getting the car ready, he put in an ignition that requires quarters to start. As you can see in the video, he drops in the quarters and then the car will fire up.

Smoking bed bugs to get high? Where will the insanity stop?!

When I was a kid, I mostly played sport with my friends, and afterwards I would be playing LAN games with them. This was my "high" when I was young - but these days, kids have access to much more - including bed bugs, which they crush up and smoke to get high.

 

 

Supposedly, kids are capturing bed bugs, crushing them, and thanks to the make up of the bugs, it creates an intense high when smoked, or injected. Pretty incredible, but I really think kids are going too far these days! What do you think? Would you crush up some bed bugs to smoke to get high? If marijuana is only being legalized in some states in the US, how long will it be for bed bugs to be a legalized high?

ThinkGeek Game of Thrones replica dragon eggs are not fireproof

If you are a fan of the HBO series Game of Thrones, you will recognize these replica eggs right away. These look like the ones given as a wedding gift to Daenerys Targaryen when she married Drogo. The eggs hatched into three dragons when she walked with them into her husband's funeral pyre. That is one of the most iconic images in the series.

If you like the idea of having your own replicas of those eggs, ThinkGeek has a set that is worth a look. The collectable eggs are officially licensed Game of Thrones merchandise. The eggs aren't petrified dragons; they are made from a resin material that will melt if you burn it.

 

The eggs lay inside a wooden case with a black silk lining and brass hardware. The top of the wooden box has the Targaryen sigil silkscreened on top in red and white colors. The eggs in their decorative box are available now for $99.99 via ThinkGeek.

Michelle Chapman, a 24-year-old British woman has been sentenced to 20 months in prison after she setup multiple fake Facebook accounts abusing herself - where she pretended to be her father and his wife.

Chapman took to Facebook to send herself abusive messages, and then complained to police. Judge Christopher Harvey Clark QC at Truro crown court called the woman "wicked". The court listened to how her actions resulted in innocent people being arrested, and receiving police cautions, and resulted in her father's marriage ending.

 

She blasted the abuse at herself over a period of an entire year, which only came to an end when forensic Internet inquiries revealed that the Facebook accounts that were abusing her were coming from her own address.

Gamer proposes to his girlfriend using a Skyrim magic item

For those who don't know about the Amulet of Mara in the game Skyrim - like myself - it is a piece of jewelry that unlocks dialogue options within the game. One of these options allows you to marry characters in the game, but a real person has used this amulet in real life, to propose to his girlfriend.

 

TweakTown image news/3/6/36828_04_gamer_promises_to_his_girlfriend_using_a_skyrim_magic_item.jpg

 

Sara Briody, the girlfriend that was proposed to by her boyfriend explained: "I introduced [my fiancée] to Skyrim - and he enjoys every minute of the game. I love watching him play because we both have very different game styles. We do play other multiplayer games together when we have the opportunity".

 

Briody continues: "He gave me the amulet and while I recognised what it was - it didn't really click as to WHAT it was. "I put it on and he started to smile from ear to ear. Then he said: 'Is that an Amulet of Mara? I'm surprised someone like you isn't spoken for.' Then it finally registered that he was proposing! He got down on one knee and slipped the ring on my finger".

Nine-month-old accused of attempted murder in Pakistan

It's not everyday that a nine-month-old baby gets accused of attempted murder, but this is exactly what has happened to a young boy in Pakistan. Mohammad Musa, just eight months old, along with his father and other members of his family, were booked for throwing rocks at gas company officials in the world-class Ahata Thanedaran neighborhood in February.

 

TweakTown image news/3/6/36818_07_nine_month_old_accused_of_attempted_murder_in_pakistan.jpg

 

Inspector Kashif Muhammad attended the alleged crime scene, and has since February 1, been suspended. He wrote in his report that it was a case of attempted murder. The eight-month-old boy was required to attend court with his father, where he was held on his father's shoulder, after which he was fed milk from a bottle while his father was answering reporters' questions.

 

The 50-year-old father of the boy said: "Everyone in the court was saying 'How can such a small child be implicated in any case'? What kind of police do we have?" The problem is, Pakistan's minimum age of criminal responsibility is 12, which was raised from seven last year - except for cases involving terrorism.

Manhattan court reporter was only typing 'I hate my job' over and over

Daniel Kochanski, a Manhattan-based court stenographer, during a high-profile criminal trial typed just a few words instead of the trial dialogue. Those words were "I hate my job, I hate my job," something he wrote over and over again.

 

TweakTown image news/3/6/36795_05_manhattan_court_reporter_was_only_typing_i_hate_my_job_over_and_over.jpg

 

The problem gets worse, as Kochanski has since been fired, but it has thrown 30 Manhattan court cases into the air. A high-level source of the NY Post has said that Kochanski's "gibberish" typing may have jeopardized hard-won convictions by giving criminals that chance to claim crucial evidence is missing.

 

One of the sources said: "It should have been questions and answers - instead it was gibberish". The story itself reads ust like Stanley Kubrick's 1980 movie starring Jack Nicholson, "The Shining" where Nicholson's character began typing "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy," with the source referring to Kochanski: "He hit random keys or wrote, 'I hate my job. I hate my job. I hate my job,' over and over".

Skydiver nearly gets hit by a meteor, survives to tell the tale

Norwegian skydiver Anders Helstrup has escaped death from a meteor, as he was skydiving back in 2012. The mystery object nearly hit him, and at the time, he and his skydiving partners thought it was a rock, or something from the plane or his parachute.

 

 

But geologist Hans Amundsen, after examining the video (above), said: "It can't be anything else. The shape is typical of meteorites - a fresh fracture surface on one side, while the other side is rounded". Amundsen said that the meteor was most likely part of something much bigger, but it broke down as it broke into the Earth's atmosphere.

 

The skydiver told The Huffington Post: "I can guarantee you the story and footage is real, recorded just as it happened. I am aware that April 1 was 3 days ago, but this has nothing to do with that. The story is just as amazing to me as it is to most others that are trying to get their head around it. I have tried to convince myself [of] every other possible explanation, but I can't seem to make myself believe it's something [other] than a significantly large object".

Nerf Nuke is the final resort in Nerf wars

We have lot of Nerf wars at my house. My daughter has a Nerf bow and she will randomly jump out of closets and shoot me, typically right in the eye or the groin. After that, I have to get payback with my junky single shot Nerf gun. I need to escalate the Nerf arms race with the Nerf.

 

TweakTown image news/3/6/36699_1_nerf_nuke_is_the_final_resort_in_nerf_wars.jpg

 

I could toss this thing into the room, run away and rest assured knowing I won. ThinkGeek says that the thing shoots 80 Nerf darts in every direction when it goes off. I would wager you could only find about 78 of them after it fires.

 

The Nerf Nuke can be thrown or launched with a special launcher. Right about now, you are probably thinking this doesn't look safe, or even very real. You would be right, it's one of those epic products that ThinkGeek trots our every April 1 to tease us. The cool thing about ThinkGeek is that it often turns its prank products into things you can actually buy. I would so buy this.
