Fear Itself

Maury Povich has done several bits about people and their fears, and some of these fears are downright silly. There's been a woman afraid of pickles. A man with a fear of peaches.

But the latest to pass my eyes is the weirdest by far.

A woman who is afraid of cotton balls.

She even has nightmares of a cotton ball man coming to attack her.

And Maury? Maury is a dick. A hilarious dick, but still. ;)

Be Careful What You Ask For

You just might get it:

WICHITA, Kan., June 17 (UPI) -- An 18-year-old Kansas man was arrested over the weekend for allegedly shooting his friend on a dare.

Police said the incident began when the 17-year-old friend taunted the 18-year-old with a gun, saying the 18-year-old would not shoot him, The Wichita Eagle reported.

The 18-year-old then shot his friend in the thigh, police said.

When police arrived, the two reportedly said the older teen had found the younger teen in the street with a gunshot wound, but police said they had reason to be suspicious.

Police said the two had been using drugs at the time of the shooting.

The 17-year-old was taken to a hospital and the 18-year-old was arrested for aggravated battery, the newspaper said.
