There's been a lot of electrical grid blackouts in the northeast this year. Blame has been placed variously on Canadians, incompetent Ohioans, inadequate infrastructure investment, hurricanes...

I think it's time the actual cause got some publicity:

Figures that she'd have the 240v, 22A model. Just the straw, as it were. Pity she didn't dedicate a ginny of her own to it.

Student cuts off penis and tongue after drinking hallucinogenic tea

A student cut off his own penis and his tongue after drinking an infusion of the latest drugs craze to sweep Germany.

The 18-year-old, only named as Andreas W, from Halle in Germany drank a tea made with the hallucinogenic angels' trumpet plants.

His mother said: "Andreas was behaving normally the whole day until he left the house and disappeared into the garden for a couple of minutes."

When he returned to the house he was wearing a towel wrapped around him and was bleeding heavily from his mouth and between his legs.

The emergency doctor who arrived a few minutes later said the student had cut off his penis and his tongue with garden shears and it was impossible to reattach the organs.

Dr Andreas Marneros, from the local psychiatric hospital the student was admitted to, said: "Andreas will have to receive psychological help for years. Tea from Angels' Trumpets is extremely dangerous as the drug cannot be dosed."

Angels' Trumpets, known for their fragrant and trumpet shaped flowers, have increasingly become popular as an alternative drug in Germany

I think it's better known as Datura in the US - I see it growing everywhere - there's a giant one at my daughter's school - very scary stuff stay away from it - my few experiences of being around people on it have involved lots of violence and attempts to restrain the people concerned for their safety and those around them

Actually, my computer crashed for a month, and when I came back this board was all new and different. When I tried to long in as Datura it told me that name didn't exist, but when I tried to register with it it said it was taken. **sigh** So I'm Jezebel now, missed this place, but I'm back.

Hey datura.

I didn't see you at the hostel (or did and didn't know it was you)

as to the name snatch, try Emailing the Admin of the board, (or even PMing him)

Umm, I was the red-head with braids running around in super-hero underoos for the majority of the week. Don't know if you saw me or not, I spent most of my time over at Shortfuse (they kidnapped me on wednesday night and I never did make it back to my actual camp...)

Send a PM to emily sparkle. She can fix it for you if no one else is using
the account. It probably created the account when you first tried to
register but didn't get activated.

Man Steals ID of Sex Offender


CLINTON, Conn. (AP) -- A good rule of thumb for an identity thief is not to steal the name of someone whose reputation is worse than yours, such as a sex offender.

Police said James Perry stole the name and identity of a neighbor who turned out to be a convicted sex offender.

Perry stole the identity of Robert Kowalski in order to obtain a drivers license, police said. Perry was living in Florida at the time and Kowalski was his neighbor.

Perry had four drunken driving arrests which he believed would make it difficult to get a license legally in Connecticut, police said.

Perry moved to Connecticut about a year ago and things went well until Perry was arrested for disorderly conduct.

A routine computer check found that "Kowalski" was a convicted sex offender in Michigan and not registered as required with the state of Connecticut.

Every bit of identification in his possession labeled the suspect as "Kowalski," but man himself was adamant that he was not a convicted sex offender, police said.

Finally, a check of his fingerprints revealed "Kowalski" to be James Perry.

Perry was released from Superior Court in Middletown Thursday on a promise to appear for his next court date Oct. 10 on charges of criminal impersonation, with charges of identity theft and forgery.
