Submission + - The 63,000,000,000 billion dollar lawsuit (foxnews.com) 1

Crazy Taco writes: This has to be the most ridiculous lawsuit ever filed in the history of the United States court system. Apparently a South Carolina inmate wants to sue Michael Vick for 63,000,000,000 billion dollars (and I don't believe the amount is a typo). He claims Michael Vick stole two white mixed pit bull dogs from his home in Holiday, Fla., used them for dogfighting operations in Richmond, Va., and then "used the proceeds to purchase missiles from the Iran government." His complaint alleges Vick would need the missiles because he pledged allegiance to Al Qaeda in February of this year. The complaint goes on to state that "Michael Vick has to stop physically hurting my feelings and dashing my hopes" and requests that the money, "backed by gold and silver," be delivered to the front gates of the Williamsburg Federal Correctional facility in South Carolina.
It's funny.  Laugh.

Submission + - Gadget - iStraw for instant clean water (tploy.com)

trsarg writes: "If you're the type who drinks water straight from the tap, perhaps picking up the iStraw would help prevent you from getting an upset tummy. This device is a lightweight polycarbonate straw that boasts its own internal filtration system. Most contaminants found in water are removed thanks to the micro-filtration process employed by the iStraw, and would be an essential item to bring along on your the next camping trip. The iStraw is capable of filtering up to 500 liters of water before a replacement is needed. It retails for £19.99 a pop. http://tploy.com/20070815356/gadget-istraw-for-ins tant-clean-water.html"
