2,500 People a Year Go to the Emergency Room for Injuries from Shaving . . . Down There:
According to a study by the University of California, San Francisco, 2,500 people a year go to the emergency room after hurting themselves while shaving . . . down there.
That's five times as many as in 2002 . . . and one out of every 33 genital and urinary tract injuries are caused by attempts to groom downstairs.
57% of the injuries are women . . . which makes sense, since between 70% and 88% of women remove their hair down there. Between 58% and 78% of men do.
83% of injuries involve a RAZOR . . . 22% involve SCISSORS . . . and 1.4% involve HOT WAX.
Your Weather Isn't So Bad . . . In Brazil, It's Raining Spiders:
A ton of snow got dumped on the East Coast this weekend and, as it goes, everyone freaked out. But compared to the weather in Brazil, 30 inches of snow is a BLESSING.
Last week, in Santo Antonio da Platina in southern Brazil, it RAINED SPIDERS. Seriously.
According to a biologist, the spiders are a species that have massive colonies and weave huge sheets of webs together. So it looked like they were raining . . . but really it was just a ton of spiders weaving big sheets of spider webs.
There's a video online, and if you have arachnophobia, even MILD arachnophobia, don't watch it. Just imagine stepping outside and seeing a sky full of floating spiders.
A Boyfriend and Girlfriend are Arrested After a Fight Over Who's the Best Guitarist Ever . . . Slash, or Eddie Van Halen:
Last week, in Brook Park, Ohio, a couple was at a Motel 6 and got into a debate. The guy was ADAMANT that SLASH is the best guitarist ever. His girlfriend was ADAMANT that EDDIE VAN HALEN is the best ever.
The argument got SO LOUD and SO VICIOUS that other people at the Motel 6 called the cops. So they came and got the couple to agree to quiet down.
But while they were there, they ran the guy and girl's names through their database . . . and found out both had outstanding warrants in other cities. So, because of their Slash-versus-Eddie debate, they're now both in jail.
