Actor Slits Own Throat (On Accident, Son)

That’s a really bad hit.AA We actually sat in the dojo all night thinking up a tasteless joke for this one - preferably related to seppuku - but we decided we could let this one get away.AA Read the snippet below or click on the link at the very bottom for the full article.

An actor slit his throat on stage when the prop knife for his suicide scene turned out to be a real one.

Daniel Hoevels, 30, slumped over with blood pouring from his neck while the audience broke into applause at the "special effect". Police are investigating whether the knife was a mistake or a murder plot. They are questioning the rest of the cast, and backstage hands with access to props; they will also carry out DNA tests.

Things went wrong at Vienna’s Burgtheater as Hoevels’ character went to "kill himself" in the final scene of Friedrich Schiller’s Mary Stuart, about Mary Queen of Scots, on Saturday night

It was only when he did not get up to take a bow that anyone realised something had gone wrong.

Though bleeding profusely, Hoevels survived because the knife missed the carotid artery as it sliced into his neck. Wolfgang Lenz, a doctor who treated him, said: "Just a little bit deeper and he would have been drowning in his own blood."

Now, we here at MNP have been known to clown Shaq in a variety of ways - but, even after us having seen the first edition of Katt William’s comedy series, this clip from PCII takes the cake.

Universal Human Rights

YouTube Preview Image

So we’re a couple of days off on this - but this month [December 10th to be exact] marks the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Since this is the truth right here - more so than our ‘beloved’ constitution - we really suggest you go read the entire document.

Equality? Freedom from torture? Yeah - this thing is still way ahead of it’s time my people.

Vertical Farming?

2008_10_08-verticalfarming.jpg

Imagine a situation where 100% of the fresh fruits and vegetables for an entire urban population are grown inside climate-controlled towers right in the city itself. Dr. Dickson Despommier was on this past weeka€™s episode of Good Food to tell us this science fiction may be a reality sooner than we think!

Despommier and his graduate students at Columbia University have been working on the Vertical Farm Project for the past ten years, and their labors are starting to come to fruition. They have designed several models for vertical farms that would be housed within glass buildings - essentially very large and high-tech green houses.

The advantages to such a system are numerous. These buildings would provide a year-round growing season and the issue of transporting fresh food to urban centers over long distances would become moot. Vertical farms would also suffer fewer affects from weather, insects, and disease. On the other end of things, all the acres of land currently being used for farming could return to their natural states as forests and prairies.

This model is ideal for places that dona€™t physically have a lot of land, like islands and large cities, or places lacking in arable land. Holland and China are two countries currently looking into vertical farming systems. Despommier also mentions that small-scale vertical farms could be established within existing buildings and could provide food for places like hospitals, restaurants, and schools.
