The last thing that Ivan "Skip" Mallas of FERGUS FALLS, Minn thought about Sunday morning was being confronted by "The Soul Collector". But that is exactly what happened. I am not sure what I would when somebody came to collect my soul. When your time is up your time is up but I wouldn't be giving my soul up without a fight.
FERGUS FALLS, Minn. (CBS/AP) A Minnesota man who referred to himself as a "soul collector" and "medicine man" – and who allegedly tried to cut off his neighbor's toes and scalp – has been charged with attempted murder.
Timothy Eugene Peterson, 42, of Fergus Falls, was also charged with two counts of second degree assault in the bizarre incident.
According to the police complaint, Ivan "Skip" Mallas was working in his garage early Sunday morning when Peterson approached him with a knife and began chanting that he was a "soul collector" and a "medicine man."
Mallas told investigators that first Peterson went after his toes, then tried to slit his throat, scalp him and stab him in the chest, while telling Mallas that he needed to "collect his soul." He told police that Peterson may have been delusional and had possibly been drinking.
A pile of my friends are doing a detox and keep telling me how I would benefit from it. Personally I think they could use the services of detox centers and not cut down on their junk food consumption but maybe they have a point. The holidays and new year was a time of terrible eating and drinking on my behalf. Maybe the body temple could use a bit of dusting out but a full body detox kind of scares me a bit. It sounds like it could be a bit harsh to treat the body this way but if it is professionally administered then maybe it has some validity. My friends tell me how I will be shocked about what I have put in my body. For now I am sticking with my lemon water regiment and see how it goes.
If you have a bunch of old video games kicking around the house here is a pratical use for them. I was at a buddies house Friday for a few beers and this is what he is using for beer coasters. Old XBox game discs. I think they look pretty good. MLB 2k6 has never seen better days.
Not much to day other than this video demonstrates the wrong way to clearing snow off of your roof.
Don't believe in the Evolution of Species? Here is a story for you to think about.
A hunter shoots and wounds a fox. When the hunter approaches the wounded animal the fox attacks the hunter, pulls the trigger on the hunters gun and shoots him in the leg. What I found funny about the story is that the fox "accidently" pulled the trigger. I suggest that that is one smart fox that pulled the trigger in defence of his well being. Darwin was right.
MOSCOW — A wounded fox shot its would-be killer in Belarus by pulling the trigger on the hunter's gun as the pair scuffled after the man tried to finish the animal off with the butt of the rifle, media said Thursday.
The unnamed hunter, who had approached the fox after wounding it from a distance, was in hospital with a leg wound, while the fox made its escape, media said, citing prosecutors from the Grodno region.
"The animal fiercely resisted and in the struggle accidentally pulled the trigger with its paw," one prosecutor was quoted as saying.
Fox hunting is popular in the picturesque farming region of northwestern Belarus that borders Poland.
I caught this on the news at lunch today. The action happens about .50 seconds into the video. Probably the craziest bowling strike I have ever seen. This is the Team USA Trials which makes it even more funnier. Congrats to Josh Scanlan. This is a great one!
Officials say when rescue crews arrived Tuesday morning, the boy was standing on his tiptoes, trying to wriggle his frozen tongue free from a stop sign pole across the street from Woodward Middle School.
Paramedics were able to help the boy by pouring water on his tongue. Once free, the boy told officials he got stuck after his brother dared him to lick the pole.
The boy was taken to a Woodward hospital for treatment.
The scene was similar to one in "A Christmas Story," a 1983 movie adapted from Jean Shepard's memoir of a boy in the 1940s.
