Bizarre but true stories about real people collected by syndicated columnist Chuck Shepherd.
In Clarksville, Ind., in June, Jason Grisham, 22, miraculously survived after climbing an electrical tower (scrambling past several obstacles and ignoring warning signs) and accidentally absorbing a virtually always-fatal 69,000 volts.
And in September, the Ohio Supreme Court overturned a judge’s order to Sean Talty to not procreate further until he had settled the $38,000 child-support tab for his first seven children (thus facilitating Talty’s fathering even more people with his perhaps-genetic predisposition to irresponsibility).
A new computer gadget enables someone to apply direct physical stimulation sexually to another person over the Internet, thus advancing “cybersex” far beyond its previous limitation of mere words and pictures. According to a September report on Wired.com, the vibrating “Sinulator,” with wireless receiver, can be activated remotely at different speeds and force by a spouse or anyone else who uses the device’s password at Sinulator’s Web site, and that manipulation can be done not only by keyboard and mouse, but by a male placing the Sinulator’s transmitting sleeve (“Interactive Fleshlight”) over his penis and thrusting at his (or the recipient’s) preferred speed and force. “Thus,” summarized the Wired writer, “a man can be thrusting in Cleveland while a woman is penetrated in Seattle.”
