No Going Back
Note to my readers this morning: After I published my post today...it vanished. Poof...just vanished. I am trying to remember what I wrote on the fly so sorry to say...what you get is what I can remember writing about. Blogger is being very unfriendly today. I find this especially ironic as I am talking about do-overs. Someone at Blogger has a evil sense of humor.
Have you ever done something, only to regret having done it and wish for a do over? Perhaps, several do-overs such as Bill Murray had in the movie Groundhog's Day. This weeks "odd news makers might of wished for a second chance.
From Bad to Worse
A man in China, was supposedly so depressed by his lacking love life that in a moment of desperation, he cut off his penis, the Mirror reported. (Now that isn't going to do much for his love life, is it?)
Shortly after his amateur amputation, 26-year-old Yang Hu had second thoughts and quickly got to a hospital in hopes of getting his sex organ reattached.
Actually "quickly" is the wrong word since he went to the hospital by riding his bicycle. To make matters worse -- as if that's possible -- he actually forgot to bring his chopped-off penis with him, requiring him to ride his bike back to the home, the Daily Star reported.
When he returned with his dismembered organ, the doctors gave him some bad news: Because Yang's penis had been without blood for too long, it would be impossible to reattach, HuffPost UK reported.
The rule of thumb as far as any body part...don't leave home without it.
Speaking of Missing Body Parts
A severed finger left at the crime scene helped police in Glendale, Arizona arrest a man suspected of trying to steal copper wire.
An air conditioning company employee reported to the Glendale police that someone tried to steal the wire from his truck on Oct. 7th.
The spool of wire — worth more than $300 — had been pulled out about 20 feet from the truck, and what appeared to be a cut off finger was caught in the wiring.
Police retrieved the finger as evidence, and forensic technicians were able to match the fingerprint to 29-year-old Joshua Allen Goverman.
Goverman told detectives he lost a finger while working on a car. (not really a great excuse as the police had caught him red handed albeit minus one finger) He was booked on suspicion of theft.
Authorities didn't know whether Goverman had a lawyer who could be reached for comment.
Perhaps, Goverman is having trouble dialing his lawyer's number.
Do Over and Over and Over
Crystal Greer Brooks was arrested shortly after midnight when police arrived at the scene and found evidence of injuries to Brook's boyfriend that appeared to be consistent with being dragged under the truck.
Upon interviewing a witness, police learned Brooks, her boyfriend and an acquaintance had "all been drinking" then had decided to go out to get something to eat. (are we surprised about the drinking part?)
Brooks allegedly became angry at their choice of restaurant — which is not identified in the police report — and demanded that her boyfriend pull his pickup truck to the side of the road. As he exited and walked to the front of the vehicle, she slid behind the wheel.
According to witness statements to police, Brooks then pulled forward and struck her boyfriend, knocking him, "onto the hood and then onto the ground." She's then alleged to have accelerated forward two additional times, striking her boyfriend in each instance.
Brooks denied hitting the man with the truck, claiming that he had, "jumped onto the hood." Based on his injuries and tattered clothing, police determined otherwise.
An individual who accompanied the pair attributed the attack to the golden arches, saying Brooks, "was mad they didn't stop at McDonald's."
Brooks was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, booked into the city jail and then transported to the Sullivan County jail in Blountville.
That is the very definition of a Mac-attack. You have to wonder what the boyfriend's choice of a restaurant was, if McDonalds was a step up.
