Fabulous News For Tonight

Heartwarming story from Slovakia:
A Slovak man trapped in his car under an avalanche freed himself by drinking 60 bottles of beer and urinating on the snow to melt it.

...after the avalanche, he had opened his car window and tried to dig his way out. But as he dug with his hands, he realised the snow would fill his car before he managed to break through.

He had 60 half-litre bottles of beer in his car as he was going on holiday, and after cracking one open to think about the problem he realised he could urinate on the snow to melt it, local media reported.

He said: "I was scooping the snow from above me and packing it down below the window, and then I peed on it to melt it. It was hard and now my kidneys and liver hurt. But I'm glad the beer I took on holiday turned out to be useful and I managed to get out of there."

Check out this listing of disturbing eBay auctions. Some of these are unintentionally frightening on a level that no "Ghost in a jar" or "Haunted Painting" could ever aspire to. Witness this "cute" doggy pen holder or this overtly fucking horrifying "Ram's Head Snuff Mull".

In geekier news, homebrew coders have some graphics demos running on the Nintendo DS. Now that they know how the graphics hardware works, they can port other homebrew games and develop original titles for the DS.

I'm giving this news post 4 out of 4 pimps in honor of that dude who peed his way out of the avalanche. Keep on rocking, brother.
