by on Apr.19, 2015, under Crime, Health, Kids, Weapons

A stranger wearing a hooded sweatshirt entered the Culver City, CA house, exchanged a few words with the father. leo4 The man opened fire, and some rounds penetrated the wall to the bedroom where Leo was lying in bed. Leo's dad ran into the bedroom to shield the boy as the gunman followed and continued to fire a total of 14 rounds. leo1 Leo was hit in the head . The boy's 17-year-old brother in the same bedroom was uninjured. leo2 Leo's skull had to be opened up to remove the bullet, and 23 staples in addition to 27 stitches were needed to close the wound.

Headed For Infamy

by on Feb.23, 2012, under Crime, Drugs, Health

Carlos Rodriguez got his 15 minutes of fame two years ago when he was arrested for soliciting prostitution. His mug shot was posted online, and it rapidly spread around the world. Many thought it was a hoax. But Carlos "Halfy" Rodriguez lost a large portion of his brain and skull in a crash after flying through his car's windshield and landing on his head on the road. He was 14. "I was barred out on drugs. I was driving and I hit a pole and flew out the front window and landed on my head," he said in a new warning message on You Tube. Showing his head to camera he added "And this is how the old boy has come out. That is why it is not good drinking and driving or drugness and driving. It is no good kids." But he admits that he still smokes a lot of pot. "This is what I do daily; burn a stake (joint). Obama is the President of ya'll United States and he smokes. Fucker has the whole White House growing. Then why can't I smoke me a blunt?". Halfy, who also goes by the name Sosa, is still waiting for an answer from Obama.

Jaws

by on Jun.17, 2011, under Animals, Health, Kids, Nature

One of the things that makes sharks so fierce is that they have multiple rows of teeth. Sometimes it affects kids too. It usually resolves itself when permanent teeth replace baby teeth. About 10% of all kids experience this, but it usually only lasts a couple of weeks at most. The Hunterian Museum at the University of Glasgow hosts the Bryce Skulls, a collection of 13 skulls that were excavated by Professor Thomas Hastie Bryce. The majority of the skulls were excavated by Bryce on his expedition to Arran in 1900. One of the skulls is particularly unusual. It's a child's skull with adult teeth coming in. Because the condition disappears so quickly, no other skulls have been found in that part of the world in this state.
