Sports Car Gets Stuck On A Rock

A German driver really did find himself between a rock and a hard place when he lost control of his sports car on a curve and ended up balanced on a boulder unable to get free. Helmut Schmidt, 25, told police in Hagenburg, Germany, had hadn’t been speeding but his motor suddenly span round three times before landing on top of the rock, the decorative entrance stone to a housing estate. The rock was part of a stone decoration belonging to one of the street’s households. A police spokesman said: ‘He wasn’t hurt apart from a few bruises and some battered pride. ‘But he couldn’t free his car which was sitting there with its rear end in the air.” w/ photo

China’s Scariest Road

“There are some roads in this world which just look scary. If there was a list of such roads then the Avenue Towards Heaven (also known as the Big Gate Road) in Tianmenshan, in the Hunan province of China might well be very near the top. It goes from a staggering 655 feet below to 4,265 feet above sea level… It is also called the road of 99 turns – nine is a lucky number in China as it symbolizes that heaven has nine palaces. If the road is a little too scary for you, there is an alternative. A cable car goes from of Zhangjiajie City to the top of Tianmen Mountain.” w/ photos

Leech Found Living In Boy’s Windpipe?

Doctors have found a 4-inch-long leech living in an impossible place – the windpipe of a 16-year-old boy. Two months ago, Tao Jiayuan felt ill and his voice became hoarse. His mother thought he had caught a cold and gave him some medicine – it didn’t work. Gradually the boy lost weight and felt weak. It wasn’t until he had difficulty breathing that his family took him to hospital. Doctors found a leech living in his windpipe. Nan’an Division of Yibin No. 2 Hospital, in Yibin City in southwest China’s Sichuan province, performed an operation on the boy late last week and removed the leech. The bloodsucker seemed hardly affected by the dose of anaesthetic given to the boy and kept creeping on the white paper when it was out of the boy’s throat. Though it is an extreme case, it is possible for leeches to steal their way into the human body, according to Doctor Chen Bing who was in charge of the operation.” w/ photo + video

Top 10 Demons To Blame For Bad Behavior

“During the Middle Ages, Demons were everywhere. Blamed for everything from hoarse speaking voices to public nudity, demons were once an omnipresent force and a viable culprit for all ill-favored aspects of human nature. Medieval demonologists wrote entire encyclopedias, including, The Lesser Key of Solomon, Compendium Maleficarum, Admirable History and Pseudomonarchia Daemonum, dedicated to the classification of demons and their contributions to mortal affectations. As people have drifted from belief in these malevolent forces, we have admitted responsibility for our own bad behavior. Here is a list of demons responsible for various maladies in the human condition, if you ever feel that burden of responsibility is too much to bear on your own.” w/ photos
