Don’t throw a brick straight up

Filed under: General — codeman38 @ 1:52 am

From this week’s News of the Weird:

The Merced (Calif.) Sun-Star reported on Dec. 10 that an unnamed man was taken to a hospital in Modesto, Calif., after his head was split open by a brick. Police, called to the scene, were expecting to find foul play, but witnesses said the man was merely trying to see how high up he could throw a brick, and since it was dark (2:30 a.m.), the man lost track of the brick’s flight and could not get out of the way when it came down on his head. Police said alcohol appeared to be involved.

The lesson, of course, should be obvious to all RinkWorks fans.
