Yes, I was skeptical when I initially saw the story, but here is a 5yo article on the topic: https://www.wired.com/2013/03/just-an-eye-drop-of-poison/

Prosecutors say they are now reviewing a 2016 incident, in which she shot her husband in the head with a crossbow as he slept.

Police determined that that shooting was "accidental", according to a police report obtained by the Charlotte Observer.

Oh my. Somebody sent me that the other day.

They did that because I sat on a jury last week. The trial was for injury caused by intoxicated use of a motor vehicle and OWI.

They installed This roundabout near me a couple years ago. I went through it a day or two after it opened and asked myself:

"How long will it be before a drunk doesn't realize it has been put in and goes over that hump at full speed?"

The answer was 'about a week.'

It took almost 2 years to percolate through the legal system, and I ended up on the jury for it.
It ended in a conviction. The driver's attempt to say "it wasn't me, somebody else was driving" failed miserably.

One witness estimated the speed when they hit it at somewhere above 70. No brake lights until just before 'launch.'

I just finished watching The Wire, so the most implausible part of the story (to me) is that the cops were called.

A lot of people get bored with the same old boring sex. They just don't know when too freaky is too freaky! :S

I suspect we've all had a vagina around our neck at one point or another. Further, I suspect there was an associated hospital visit in most of those cases.

When choosing items to steal, it's a good idea to cross "GPS tracking device" off the list.:S

Stumpy

Finding it hard to have too much sympathy here

https://edition.cnn.com/2018/10/01/us/bear-injures-alaska-hunter-trnd/index.html

"A hunter in Alaska was hospitalized after the bear he shot rolled on top of him"




Hmmmm. I'm not a hunter. But I have no problem feeling sympathy for the hunter. Am I supposed to feel sorry for the bear?
