Boyfriend Tases And Buries Girlfriend Alive!

the woods

Michelina Lewandowska is a survivor if we've ever heard of one!

She met Marcin Kasprzak six years ago and the two fell in love. They had a child together (now 3) and moved to England together.

After "growing bored" with her, Marcin began plotting an escape. It was bad enough having to deal with his constant verbal abuse, but he finally snapped with the help of an accomplice.

Using a 300,000 volt taser, he

Video Footage Documents Man Surviving Skydiving Accident

Filed under: InspirationSad SadYouTubeInjury

OMG!

Words can not express how terribly we feel for this skydiver who unknowingly filmed the accident which started his life as a quadriplegic.

During a routine jump amongst experienced friends, the man filming (identified as Tim in the footage) collides with a friend at 2,500 feet in the sky and tangles his parachute.

Unable to properly maneuver the mangled "ball of nylon", Tim plummets to the ground and breaks his pelvis, back and neck as he lands in a cornfield.

He not only details his traumatic experience on his YouTube page, but shares it took him four-and-a-half years to watch the harrowing footage, writing:

"As I lay waiting for help, spinal shock begins to set in paralyzing my diaphragm and breathing on my own becomes impossible. Rescue breathing is performed as I lose consciousness. Paramedics arrive and I'm med-flighted to UW Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin where I awake days later after surgery and begin life as a quadriplegic. It's taken me four and a half years to be able to watch this video."

The actual impact is (thankfully) cut from the video, but what remains is an inspirational display of courage.

His friends come to his aid and Tim (even after suffering life-threatening injuries) calmly instructs them how to properly care for him to ensure his survival until paramedics arrive.

Watch the jaw-dropping video above to see a man bravely face the reality of his awful situation as he fights for his life.

Tim, if you're reading this, you are our hero!

Will Netflix Go Bankrupt In A Year???

netflix may go bankrupt in a year

Don't spend TOO much time creating an extensive Netflix queue…you MAY not make it through the whole thing!

Yesterday, we reported that Netflix stock prices hit a 52-week low EVEN THOUGH the company admitted they wrong and announced that they wouldn't split into two separate entities for DVDs-by-mail and streaming service.

Now, investors' blog SeekingAlpha.com is saying that they believe Netflix could be bankrupt WITHIN A YEAR!:

Jewel's Dad Gets A Reality Show!

Jewel's Dad Gets Reality Show

Discovery loves their rural shows, and has recently picked up two brand new ones!

The first one is about moonshiners who keep up the 200 year tradition in very remote places of Appalachia. Yes, even some of them aren't doing it legally! That one is aptly named Moonshiners.

But the real crown jewel of the two (lol, get it??) would have to be Mountain Men of Alaska, where the guys straight up live off the land: hunting, fishing, and doing whatever they can to get them through the winters. Pretty brutal stuff.

Men will actually be following Jewel, the famed singer's dad! His name is Atz Kilcher (her legal name is Jewel Kilcher) and he sounds like one tough dude. It'll be interesting to see him in his element!!

Atz, have fun! Catch tons of fish!

Are U excited for these shows??

The Faster You Walk, The Longer You'll Live

Filed under: FitnessHealthLegsAging

faster you walk longer you live

Hooray for treadmills!

According to new research, doctors are able to measure how long elderly patients will live based on how fast they can walk.

Here's what researcher Stephanie Studenski had to say about it:

“Health in late life is imperfectly captured by the list of medical conditions you have. Walking speed is a simple way to summarize the capacity and function of many of your body’s systems.”

According to the research, survival predictions based on walking speed, age, and gender are just as accurate as research based on age, gender, chronic conditions, smoking history, blood pressure, body mass index, AND hospitalization.

To help our odds in the future, maybe we should start racewalking.

Ha!
