Bedbugs Becoming Nuisance In Cuyahoga County
Exactly how many cases does it take to be a nuisance?A published report said the number of bedbug cases in Cuyahoga County are up.
Cuyahoga County reported zero cases last year.
I'm sure it depends on if they are in your own bed or not.
I'm Not Evil.
An evil person would do the things that pop into my head.
Just to clarify: they may face certain death.Originally Posted by [url=http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26637482]MSNBC[/url]
I read this article only because the headline made me go hmmm ().
Sons of infertile men may be next
An article about infertile men passing on the bad genes? How does that work?
At least the article answered it.
But don't Kangaroo Rats live on Dune, which according to something I read somewhere, is around Canopus?
They are trying to say the chili killed him?
I'm sure a lot of people die after eating things and doing things.
When I was 3, I wet the bed. When I die- it will be after when I was three. Therefore, I died after wetting the bed. Maybe it killed me.
The cause of death is "heart attack" according to a report I read earlier (I didn't read this one--perhaps it said the same thing). I'd be surprised if chili peppers did that. There was talk of an "itch" before he died--makes me think--1. allergy (can that cause heart attack?), 2. circulation problem
What gets me about it is that they keep saying he was Healthy before the Heart Attack.
Well, gee. I'm perfectly healthy today but if I have a heart attack tomorrow, I'll still be just as dead.
I can see how it may be possible that he had some (must be rare) allergy. But for the most part, I would think that it's either coincidence or the chili was spiked with strychnine.
Over here). Not for the situation, but for the following:
Would it be a proper meal if he hadn't eaten lamb chops or potato mash?Andrew just ate the chillies with a plate of Dolmio sauce,” she added. “It was not a proper meal because he had already eaten lamb chops and potato mash after work.
I'm sure the comment had something to do with either food interactions, or not on an empty stomach or something along those lines. But; why quote it if you have no clue why it was said?
Who wants to start at the bottom. Why was this said. Is there an additional reference unwritten about him not getting a job?“He loved cooking for his friends. He always said he wanted to be a chef but didn’t want to start at the bottom.”
And I didn't think about allergy; I suppose that could put stress on the heart. But they said he didn't die until the morning after...that's a heck of a long time for an alergy to kick in.
"He as healthy before hand, he even just passed a physical!". A lot of "healthy" people die from heart problems. Not all heart problems show up on a normal physical. I don't think the chili had anything to do with it.
Andrew Lee, 33, suffered heart failure the morning after he ate the chilli.
The Fox story says:
The following morning he was found dead, possibly after suffering a heart attack.
The postmortem showed no heart problems.
One last comment (from the Fox story)
An inquest was opened and adjourned in Doncaster last week.
Inquest into what? and adjourned why? (possibly a UK/US translation issue)
yeah, maybe the inquest was "tabled"!
But, we all know the butler did it. Case closed.
Not familiar with this sauce, but it sounds like a type of tomato sauce, if this is any measure:..."Andrew just ate the chillies with a plate of Dolmio sauce”...Dolmio [Bolognese] Sauce
Tomatoes, Tomato Puree, Lemon Juice, Onion, Sugar, Olive Oil, Salt, Basil, Garlic, Herbs, Parsley, Spices...no nasty additives lurking in this sauce...
dooyou.co.ukCapsaicin is the active component of chili peppers...In large quantities, capsaicin can cause death.
Symptoms of overdose include difficulty breathing, blue skin, and convulsions. The large amount needed to kill an adult human and the low concentration of capsaicin in chilies make the risk of accidental poisoning by chili consumption negligible...
No heart problems. Except for the obvious one that IT WASN'T BEATING!The postmortem showed no heart problems.
Well, I know what they meant. No blocked arteries or cardiomegaly, for example. But still, it reads kind of funny.
As above, so below
Another case of a car doing something.
This article seems to go out of the way to avoid saying this car had a driver especially after the clumsy opening.
Person Injured After Car Drives Into Deep Sinkhole; Road Closed
Ok; the driver may not have seen the hole, but jeez... there's another person that was in that situation. Sure; we can assume they are ok, but what went through thier mind? Were there only 2 people?One person was injured early Wednesday morning after a vehicle for which that person was a passenger drove into a deep, wide sinkhole
Maybe a candidate for bad reporting instead...
Edit: I vote bad reporting.
This one reports the injury.
This other station reports the hole and infers the water department didn't know the sinkhole was there. (They don't say why they were there, or that an accident and/or injury was involved)
While this one barely mentions the water department.
Nothing to get a clue on the sequence of events.

"after a vehicle for which that person was a passenger"?
Just more proof that most places feel editors for online articles aren't necessary.
Here's one that's, shall we say, questionable. Maybe Gillianren can offer an opinion.
NASA is extending the Phoenix mission as much as possible before the sun drops below the horizon for winter, rendering Phoenix's solar-powered batteries useless.
Says Mr. Goldstein, "We are literally trying to make hay as the sun shines."
Oviously, they're not literally "trying to make hay." They are, however, literally constrained "as the sun shines."
So is it a misuse of the word "literally," or not? Would it've been better to say something more unwieldy, like, "We're trying to make hay, as - literally - the sun shines"?
Of course, "We're metaphorically trying to make hay as the sun shines." seems more correct, but sounds just as dumb. I don't know why they couldn't have left the [whatever part of speech 'literally' is in that sentance *hides from Gillian's wrath] out completely.
I'm more concerned that he botched the idiom -- it's usually "make hay while the sun shines". Or at least it was in my family.
It's funny, my use of the idiom is a bit counter-factual--I say "make hay while the sun shines" to mean, go out and observe while it's nice and clear and dark.
Yes, it's wrong. Yes, I've always heard it as "while." And "literally" is an adverb.
"Now everyone was giving her that kind of look UFOlogists get when they suddenly say, 'Hey, if you shade your eyes you can see it is just a flock of geese after all.'"
"You can't erase icing."
"I can't believe it doesn't work! I found it on the internet, man!"
You know, maybe Mr. Goldstein really did mean they were trying to make hay aboard Phoenix. Plenty of open land, and there's no problem of the hay getting wet and rotting.
Was Phoenix designed by International Harvester, by any chance?
As above, so below
Just like this one... It's a quote, but I don't like the use of the word 'poor'.
Assasin game is dangerous
Poor needs a lack of something (from how I interpret the multiple definitions) While I can extend the statement to mean a lack of suspicion, I still think it's only there for meaningless emphasis.[Wethersfield Police Chief James Cetran]"They cut in front of a poor unsuspecting motorist and two people were taken to the hospital, including a student. At least one of those accidents they drove in front of a poor unsuspecting woman and two people were taken to the hospital, including the woman," he said.
While I can understand "kids will be kids" going on here, and they need to be warned of the dangers, I don't think that should apply to the ones involved in accidents. The results of that kind of behavior should be stressed before getting a license.
