The body of a 41-year-old man was found in a wooded area next to a guillotine he built and used to kill himself. Police said the roughly six-foot tall guillotine was bolted to a tree and included a swing arm. Police also found several store receipts detailing the materials used to assemble the device. "I can't even tell you how long it must have taken him to construct," he said. "This man obviously was very determined to end his life."
Patricia Gabrysiak is an idiot! She needed a new sump pump, but she wound up taking a trip to the hospital with severe burns instead. A repairman left the pump and some supplies and also left three liquid-filled containers: a gallon water jug, a liter of water container and a bottle with a ginger ale label. Gabrysiak took a drink from one of the containers, discovering too late that it was filled with battery acid. She is suing the repairman who allegedly left the containers. The attorney for the repairman argues in court that Gabrysiak should not have been drinking from the containers when she didn't know what was in them. The supplies were left in the basement because the repairman intended to return and install the pump the next day.
