That's intense, saw them open for Metallica in 2009.

This the second shark sighting off cape cod in the last week.  The last sighting had a great white only 50 yards from shore.

We were planning to do a few days camping on the cape at the end of the month and I had planned to do some surfing while we were there.  This news makes me a little nervous now.

Wow, that dude is lucky he didn't end up as chum.

On a different note, and one that hits close to home for me.

http://loudwire.com/lamb-of-god-singer-randy-blythe-reportedly-arrested-in-czech-republic/

This shit is pretty fucked up.
Here's a piece for RS that I tweeted on Friday:
http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/lamb-of-god-singer-still-imprisoned-in-czech-republic-20120705

And as of today, the band issued a statement which doesn't really say much:
http://www.antimusic.com/news/12/July/10Official_Statement_from_Lamb_Of_God_Regarding_Randy_Blyths_Arrest.shtml

I'm not one to do this often, but I'm just trying to help a brother out. If you could sign and pass this along that would be cool. If not, no big deal. It's funny how little attention this has been given in the mainstream media compared to some stupid celebrity relationship bullshit.

Oh! That! No, no, no, you're not ready to step into The Court of the Crimson King. At this stage in your training an album like that could turn you into an evil scientist.

I'd rather dwell in some dark holler where the sun refuses to shine, where the wild birds of heaven can't hear me when I whine.

very cool

back to our usual programming of fucked up news and individuals - not sure if this made the national news or not, but a big story here.
A cath lab tech was shooting and steeling fentanyl, filling the vials with attached needles with saline, putting them back so they can be used in pts. There was an outbreak of Hep C in NH as a result - and it turns out this guy was travelling all over the country and killing people.

Just heard that one hospital in KC thinks this asshole could have affected 400 people there

fact is - a tech should not have access to these drugs in a hospital

Former Exeter Hospital employee arrested as ‘serial infector’ of at least 30 patients

By Chelsea Conaboy , Globe Staff

Federal officials have arrested David Matthew Kwiatkowski and charged him in connection with the hepatitis C infection of at least 30 patients who were treated in Exeter Hospital’s cardiac catheterization lab.

The 32-year-old worked as a medical technician at the hospital from April 2011 to May 2012, according to a press release from the US Attorney’s office in Concord, N.H. He is accused of taking an anesthetic called Fentanyl, said to be more powerful than morphine. In his role, he should not have had direct access to the drug, but an empty syringe and several needles were found in his vehicle, the release said.

“The evidence gathered to date points irrefutably to Kwiatkowski as the source of the hepatitis C outbreak at Exeter Hospital,” US Attorney John P. Kacavas said in the release. “With his arrest, we have eliminated the menace this ‘serial infector’ posed to public health and safety.”

Kwiatkowski, originally from Michigan, has worked in at least seven states as a traveling technician and is thought to have been infected with hepatitis since June 2010. Investigators said he stole Fentanyl from at least one other hospital in another state, taking a syringe from an operating room and replacing it with one filled with another liquid. The press release did not say where that incident occurred or which states he has worked in.

He was arrested Thursday morning at a hospital in Massachusetts, where he was undergoing treatment, the release said. He has been charged with obtaining controlled drugs by fraud and tampering with a consumer product.

An affidavit filed in a federal court in New Hampshire Thursday alleged that he was observed leaving the Exeter lab during procedures and attending procedures on his off days.

“One witness claimed that he appeared to be ‘on something’ while another witness claimed to have observed ‘track marks’ on his arms,” the release said.

Kwiatkowski told investigators that he did not know he was infected until May of this year. Hepatitis C can cause severe liver damage over time. At least 30 people have tested positive for the same strain of the virus with which Kwiatkowski is infected and all were treated at the hospital during the time he worked there.

The US attorney’s office is working with public health officials in other states in which Kwiatkowski worked and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to address “possible public health implications.”
