Two Friday highlights

You know you've got your money's worth (of something), when a variety show act actually makes audience members faint. (It was this. Warning: graphic images. Don't click through if you are squeamish about body modification.)

Our apartment is leaking again. All I can say is SO LONG, SUCKERS. That's what you get for buying a place without an engineer's report.

Wow, I'm all about the Schadenfreude today, aren't I?

gnarly! I totally love it. And yet ummm I'm also totally freaked out.

eeeek.... Why do people do this, exactly?

Well, the guy who did it at the show said he does it at least partly for the endorphin and adrenaline rush, but I know some people see it as a spiritual/ritual experience of a sort (presumably, though, they aren't the ones who are doing it as an "act" in a show.)
