Man pretends to fall off of bridge and actually falls: a drunken stunt gone wrong

Posted in don't try this at home,humor by weirdoftheday on April 26, 2009

In Bloomington, MN, an intoxicated 23-year-old man accidentally plummeted 30 feet off of a bridge over the Minnesota River last Sunday. 

He and a friend had been driving over the Highway 77 bridge when he suddenly felt nature’s urgent call, and he told his friend to pull the vehicle over into the emergency lane so that he could get out and do his business. Unfortunately, he ended up doing a lot more.

The 23-year-old climbed over the ledge of the bridge and tried to pull a fast one on his friend by pretending to fall. Not a very smart thing to do when you’re 30 feet off the ground and a little tipsy. His stunt turned into a total fail when he actually fell off of the bridge and landed in the marshland below.

He suffered serious injuries but according to a recent report he is now in stable condition. 

I’m not sure what could possibly compel someone to pull a stunt like that, but then again alcohol has the dangerously remarkable power to erase fears and inhibitions.

Teen charged for setting man’s crotch on fire

Posted in don't try this at home,dumb criminals,fire,humor by weirdoftheday on March 30, 2009

In Detroit, 18-year-old Tyler Quick was charged with “intent to commit great bodily harm less than murder” for setting a 51-year-old man’s pants on fire.


The victim was holding a party with several teenagers in attendance and plenty of alcohol. The incident occurred when the victim passed out and Quick decided to hold a lit candle up to his crotch. 

Now, this may seem like a brilliantly funny prank to play on a sleeping person, but when it involves an open flame near very flammable clothing, things will obviously not go in anyone’s favor.

The man’s pants caught fire and luckily he woke up quickly enough to put the flame out, though he sustained some nasty third degree burns on his crotch.

What makes this so ridiculous is the fact that the 51-year-old did not seek out immediate medical attention for his injuries. Authorities were not notified of the incident until several days later.

This probably wouldn’t have ever happened if the guy didn’t have a bunch of underaged teens drinking in his house.

Sex Toy Gone Bad

Posted in don't try this at home,sex,Uncategorized by weirdoftheday on March 20, 2009

We don’t hear these kinds of stories very often, but we know that there are some very creative people out there who will do almost anything to spice up their sex lives. In this case, a couple took it a little too far.

According to, on March 9, a 27-year-old Maryland woman was flown to the hospital after a sexual act that was performed with a reciprocating saw went horribly wrong. Apparently the saw cut right through the actual sex toy that it was being used with before injuring the woman.

It was not disclosed exactly what kind of sex toy they were using along with this reciprocating saw. I didn’t even know what a reciprocating saw was until I Googled it, and all I could say when I saw an image of this dangerous contraption was: Oh, my… 












This thing is used to cut through metal pipes. I can only imagine what kind of damage this woman sustained.
