GET DRUNK, JUMP SHIP.

What’s the most exciting thing to do on a cruise liner besides catching the flu? Well, get hammered on booze and medication and jump ship. Michael Mankamyer did just that. After ordering room service and drinking some booze, he bailed 70 feet off his Carnival Cruise balcony about 30 miles from Port Everglades.

When asked what happened after he began drinking, he responded “I don’t remember much after that. Apparently, the alcohol took over with my medication I was on.”

Soon after a coast guard ship appeared, but wasn’t close enough to see Michael bobbing up and down with the waves.

“As soon as I saw the Coast Guard and I thought I was saved, and they turned around and didn’t see me, it definitely set in that you are in trouble and that you might not make it.”

But, after a few, they found and airlifted him to a nearby hospital. Luckily he only suffered mild hypothermia and was released. Escaping a slot in this year’s Darwin awards.
Well, if Michael is ever caught on a sinking ship, he’s already got some practice under his belt.


MESS WITH THE BULL…

And get sterilized for free. I bet Fernando Cruz is thinking about a career change. The guy is a matador at the Valencia bullring in Madrid (at least, I think it’s in Madrid).

During Tuesday’s corrida, Fernando got gored in the lunchbox twice, tearing through both nuts and into his thigh. Wow, my appetite is gone. Amazingly, the doctor’s there were able to patch him up, and he’ll be able to fight and breed again!

Here’s the statement:
“Fernando Cruz is suffering from two horn wounds of 25 centimeters in length each. One involves the fibers of the abductor muscle and dissects the femoral artery, the other involves the scrotal area and eviscerates both testicles.”

That’ll sure bring down your Tuesday.


I AIN’T MOVIN!

You gotta love China – one of the only countries to let something like this happen (photo).

Apparently, this guy’s neighbor bought up all of the land around his place to build some sort of strip mall or something. Of course, the last building owner there didn’t want to move, and an argue has been raging since. While these two land owners sort out their argument, the neighbor went ahead and started excavating around the building to get moving on his own plans.

That house sits 40 feet up in the air and has become it’s own little island. He needs to build a rope bridge or something and turn it into a tourist trap.

I’d credit the photographer of the photo, but I have no idea who took it. But whomever did, I credit you!
