@tsarstepan,
Curiously, the grenade was in Iowa and the deceased was in Indiana.

@bobsal u1553115,
Was that as a result of the explosion?

@tsarstepan,
wrong way to get trapped - all that blood going to their heads.

Custard shop that survived COVID and car crashes finds sweet success on Instagram
Quote:
A former diner built in the 1940s, it seemed perfect for his dream: slinging soft serve. Jawad painted the building a cheerful pink and hung a sign: The Custard Company. But the timing was terrible. The doors opened in summer 2019, less than a year before the pandemic. And that wasn't even the worst thing that happened.

"We had not one, but two cars crash into the building," Jawad recalled ruefully. "Somebody ran the red light over here on Monroe and Outer Drive, T-boned another car. And the other car went straight towards us."

Fortunately, a huge steel bench was standing between the car and the customers. The car slammed into the bench and no one got injured. Then only a few months later, another car hit Jawad's custard shop. It was winter and icy. A driver lost control and skidded right into the building.

"The poor police called me and said, 'Hey Jamal, come over here. There's a car that ran into your building." He pauses for emphasis. "Again."

@tsarstepan,
A Colorado man is dead after a pet Gila monster bite
Quote:
A Colorado man has died after being bitten by his pet Gila monster in what would be a rare death by one of the desert lizards if the creature's venom turns out to have been the cause.

Christopher Ward, 34, was taken to a hospital shortly after being bitten by one of his two pet Gila monsters on Feb. 12. He was soon placed on life support and died Friday, Lakewood Police Department spokesman John Romero said Tuesday.

@tsarstepan,
Now put those endangered lizards back in the Arizona desert where they belong after a quarantine.

One doesn't know what disease he might have passed on to the poor lizard.

@tsarstepan,
Yeah, but the carnies gave them free all-day passes for the next day.

@Mame,
Anyone that blithely rides a device that will be in another state next week, maintained by guys with less teeth than the front row of a Hank Williams Jr concert, that holds them upside down 50 or so feet over the pavement has to expect the occasional glitch.
