Some Wild Stories...

Two Women's Lives Saved By Silicone Breast Implants:

The first was a Brazilian woman caught in crossfire between drug lords and the police. Doctors said if the silicone hadn't slowed the bullet it would have ripped though vital organs. (source)

The second woman was speared by a blue Marlin while fishing. The Marlin's serrated spear pierced through her arm and her chest (exiting through her back). Once again, the severity of the initial impact and subsequent injury was slowed by the silicone implant. Doctors treating this woman said without the implants her lung would have been pierced and she would probably have died. (Watch the video of the attack & the story)

Needless to say...Both women had the implants replaced.

Yeah for breast implants! ;)


Pennsylvania State Court Rules Miller Genuine Draft Is Actually Beer:

Actually, the headline of this story is what I thought was funny --most likely because I live with a giant beer snob...

"...A judge who dismissed charges against a man accused of buying a case of beer for a 17-year-old, saying prosecutors failed to prove Miller Genuine Draft was an alcoholic beverage, was mistaken, state Superior Court ruled." (source)
