Kid wins a basketball championship at 18, then has an aneurism on his flight to Disneyworld. Then things turn really bad.

He's treated at Stanford, where he suddenly develops Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, a rare disease that causes a person's skin to "burn" off from the inside out - and he's now blind. To top it all off, Stanford doesn't have the facilities to treat the "burns". Berkeley does, but they won't take him because he's not a resident of California.

Kipp Rusty Walker, 19, took the stage at Strictly Organic Coffee in the town of Bend, Or. on Thursday to perform a song he called "Sorry for the Mess."

When he finished playing, he pulled out a knife with a double-edged 6 inch blade and stabbed himself multiple times in the chest in front of a confused crowd of roughly 15 people.

My girlfriend recently bought me this cable for my birthday and I was immediately excited. I had already purchased a SunBrite 55" Outdoor LCD TV and new that the picture quality was lacking due to the cheap $500 cable that I was talked into downgrading to. This one, at only a little more than 3x the price, would surely take me to another plane of viewing pleasure. Oh how right I was.

Once I connected my TiVo and television with the cable I sat in front of it and turned on the power. For 30 seconds I saw colors that I never knew existed, never had existed before this AV combo of the Gods was brought to this earth. Then, I went completely blind. The awesomeness that shot out of the television was too great for mortal eyes. In panic I called to my girlfriend. She ran into the room, only to scream and attempt to flee. Apparently the refraction from this new technological prism created an inter-dimensional rift. Flying armored goats flew past me, grabbed my girlfriend, and retreated into the portal.

Now, thanks to AudioQuest and their Coffee colored cable that went so well with my plush futon and matching shag carpet, I must make pursuit into the portal. Blind, with only my Boston Terrier Jake to guide me, I must venture into their world and slay the Ram King. This may be farewell, but I must try and right this wrong. Please heed this warning. Stick to the AudioQuest Carbon Platinum HDMI cable or a lesser quality plasma TV.

What's great about it: Color matched my shag carpet and futon, allowed me to see further past the visible light spectrum.

What's not so great: Went blind, girlfriend captured by winged livestock, may have unleashed Armageddon.

Westboro Protestors Stymied in Mississippi

“A couple of days before, one of them (Westboro protestors) ran his mouth at a Brandon gas station and got his arse waxed. Police were called and the beaten man could not give much of a description of who beat him. When they canvassed the station and spoke to the large crowd that had gathered around, no one seemed to remember anything about what had happened.

Rankin County handled this thing perfectly. There were many things that were put into place that most will never know about and at great expense to the county.

Most of the morons never made it out of their hotel parking lot. It seems that certain Rankin county pickup trucks were parked directly behind any car that had Kansas plates in the hotel parking lot and the drivers mysteriously disappeared until after the funeral was over. Police were called but their wrecker service was running behind and it was going to be a few hours before they could tow the trucks so the Kansas plated cars could get out.

A few made it to the funeral but were ushered away to be questioned about a crime they might have possibly been involved in. Turns out, after a few hours of questioning, that they were not involved and they were allowed to go on about their business.”
