If you want some insight into Dick Cheney's recent hunting "accident," check out this bizarre excerpt from Trance-Formation of America, a book written in 1995 by Cathy O'Brien, a woman who claimed to be a victim of brutal mind control experiments carried out by men in the highest levels of the American government. In one excerpt of the book, O'Brien tells how Cheney used to traumatize his victims by taking them on his hunting trips: "Dick Cheney, then [assistant] White House Chief of Staff to President Ford ... was the reason my family had travelled to Wyoming where I endured yet another form of brutalityhis version of 'A Most Dangerous Game,' or human hunting ... Dick Cheney had an apparent addiction to the 'thrill of the sport.'" He appeared obsessed with playing A Most Dangerous Game as a means of traumatizing mind control victims, as well as to satisfy his own perverse sexual kinks."

BEAM ME UP, I'M BROKE
The Trekkie who dealt with his divorce by turning his apartment into a replica of the command deck of Star Trek's Starship Voyager has gone bankrupt after going over $200,000 into debt to finance his dream of geek world dominance. Tony Alleyne's original plan was to show off his supercool apartment to other Trekkies and have them pay him to also convert their apartments into shrines to Star Trek. After the customers didn't materialize, Alleyne tried to sell his apartment on eBay for a cool $2 million. Still no luck. "I'm still proud of what I created but it's been a financial disaster," concluded Tony after maxing out a total of 14 credit cards.

HEY DUMMY, CONFISCATED DRUGS ARE FOR THE OFFICERS‚ PERSONAL USE ONLY
At last we have a winner in the "Stupid Things People Do For Drugs" contest. Last week Grace Sium, a 20-year-old woman in North Dakota called her local police station and asked the dispatcher where she could buy some pot. After a stern warning that pot was illegal, Sium insisted that she didn't care about that and just wanted to buy some weed, after which the police dispatcher told her that they had some confiscated drugs in the police locker and if she really wanted some she should come down to the station. Alas, Sium did exactly that, showing up at the police station with $3 and being promptly arrested. (KTRK-TV)
ADDING INSULT TO INJURY
What's worse than going to Iraq to fight in a war and having your arm blown to shreds by a roadside bomb? Coming home because of your injuries and having the army charge you $700 for letting your body armor get blown up. So goes the tale of 1st Lt. William "Eddie" Rebrook IV, who was forced to come up with the cash because nobody bothered to record the fact that his body armor was destroyed during battle and incinerated as a biohazard. "I last saw the [body armor] when it was pulled off my bleeding body while I was being evacuated in a helicopter," Rebrook said. Tough luck, sucker, that'll be $700. (wvgazette.com)
