Russia's 'flying donkey' dies of heart attack

Unfortunately, this marketing stunt was animal abuse. Parasailing was terrifying and ultimately fatal for Anapka the flying donkey,

but exhilarating for Meadbh.

It's all about whether you choose to do it, or are forced to.

Not hard to believe once you see those rooster spurs. Wickedly sharp.

Was speaking with a dental professional who told me how much faster she did oral surgery now, with attendant superior outcome. Then ran across this on surgeon Liston (1794-1897):
Robert Liston - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"
Second most famous case: "Amputated the leg in 2 1/2 minutes, but in his enthusiasm the patient's testicles as well" [12]

Liston's most famous case:
Amputated the leg in under 2 1/2 minutes (the patient died afterwards in the ward from hospital gangrene, they usually did in those pre-Listerian days). He amputated in addition the fingers of his young assistant (who died afterwards in the ward from hospital gangrene, they usually did in those pre-Listerian days). He also slashed through the coat tails of a distinguished surgical spectator, who was so terrified that the knife had pierced his vitals he dropped dead from fright. That was the only operation in history with a 300 per cent mortality.[21]"

Some of these are on the way to kinky I think. I especially like the guy stroking the woman's nose from behind; this has all kinds of possibilities. Stroke anything on a woman from behind and it starts to get kinda cool. Even put the words stroke, woman, and behind in the same sentence and it is getting toward cool.
