Somebody needs to tell that poor nun that medical science has made great strides - they actually know what causes that, now.

Wacky news.......... - The Club House
I thought the video was funny in a ridiculous sort of way.
BS-EN471:2003. Class 2. Look it up.

Of course, none of this explains why letting your chickens wander onto public roads is necessary.

Stuck in windshield

http://news.yahoo.com/cyclist-driver-didn-39-t-see-stuck-windshield-163758620.html?.tsrc=lgwnaww

The dude survived.

MANITOWOC, Wis. (AP) A Wisconsin man who became lodged in the windshield of a car that struck him said he turned to the driver and said, "Hello, I'm the guy you hit on the bicycle."

The driver did not respond, but continued on, running a stop sign and hitting another vehicle before he arrived home, the cyclist, Steven Gove, told HTR Media about the Saturday incident (http://htrne.ws/1bI58jh ).

The man finally noticed Gove when he stopped the car outside his home.

"He looked at me and said 'Who are you? What are you doing in the car?'" Gove said. "He started freaking out: 'I'm going to jail, I'm going to jail.'"

The man then locked the car doors and went into his home. Gove, whose body had gone most of the way through the windshield, then pulled his knees and feet into the car.

"I righted myself and got out," he said. "I unlocked the passenger's side door and started walking down the street."

A witness had called police, who found Gove as he was walking and took him to a hospital. Doctors removed glass from Gove's eyes and treated him for other cuts to the head and leg.

The driver, a 20-year-old Manitowoc man, was found at the home and treated at a hospital for a serious cut to the hand. He hadn't been formally charged as of Tuesday morning, but he was facing several preliminary charges, including suspicion of drunken driving, suspicion of hit-and-run causing injury and suspicion of failing to render aid.

Gove, a 56-year-old newspaper carrier, was shocked that the driver didn't see him on his three-wheeled delivery bike.

"I was wearing my blue overcoat with my neon reflective vest," said Gove. "I had my front and rear flashers on. I have no idea why he didn't see me."

A 50-year-old Green Bay man died in a similar accident in 2007. Steven Warrichaiet was sentenced to 15 years in prison for hitting Tyrone Ware, driving home with Ware's body lodged in the windshield and leaving Ware in the garage while Warrichaiet went inside and fell asleep on the couch. An autopsy showed Ware died instantly of spinal injuries.

Much better outcome than this heartless witch. She went out to the garage several times to check on her victim but never sought help. At least the victim in your last paragraph died instantly. This man did not.

Man, that's sick. And the dingbat was a "nurse's aide".
Just what the world needs, a nurse who has direct contact with patients while she's zonked out on drugs. And she obviously has no compassion for injured people.

That story I posted was from several years ago but it still haunts me. How incredibly heartless. She actually went out and talked to him a few times before he died. I just can't wrap my head around that.

this was all over the news.

there is a lobby of concerned citizens and a portion of the conservative tea party elected officials wanting harsher drunk driving laws here but they are being fought by moderates and democrats who like drunk driving in wisconsin being the state past time with no real consequences.

my prediciton, knowing wisconsin judges, is he will get probation or maybe have to spend a few nites sleeping in a huber facility and being released each morning with no felony conviction. lots of judges here think that drunk driving is a harmless past time much like throwing darts at the pub.

a couple weeks ago there was a woman in milwaukee on 8 th dui caught driving on i94 the wrong way at 80mph for the 3rd time and she has already killed one person dui. she still isnt in prison.

I will say this only once. If I am with my family and am involved in an accident where the other person is driving drunk I will pull out my gun and shoot them dead on the spot. There are some things in this world that absolutely cannot be tolerated. Someone else's intoxication putting my family's life in danger is one of those things.

Then you will spend the rest of your life....or a good, long part of it, away from your family. That would not be a smart move, ABG.
