Lean forward and choke yourself 

This just in from the Department of People Who Need to Have Their Head Placed in a Vise Grip. We are a lawsuit-happy country, and it's really starting to make me think that some folks out there are oxygen bandits. You know... stealing perfectly good air from the rest of us so that their lungs can continue to supply O2 to the heart, when it's clear that the brain is freaking DEAD.
Durango - Two teenage girls decided one summer's evening to skip a dance where there might be cursing and drinking to stay home and bake cookies for their neighbors.

Big mistake.

Inside one of the nine scattered rural homes south of Durango that got cookies that night, a 49-year-old woman became so terrified by the knocks on her door around 10:30 p.m. that she called the sheriff's department. Deputies determined that no crime had been committed.

But Wanita Renea Young ended up in the hospital emergency room the next day after suffering a severe anxiety attack she thought might be a heart attack.

A Durango judge Thursday awarded Young almost $900 to recoup her medical bills. She received nothing for pain and suffering.
That's right. These two girls got sued because they wanted to foster a little community relations and bring some cookies to the witch woman next door.

It's times like this where I wish Gunny Ermey did housecalls.
