two times is the blessed charm...

Sometimes there's just so much craziness going on in the world that I have no choice but to block the most sensational sounding stories out.

Hence, why it took 5 days for me to actually bother to read the details on Jesse Shipley, the kid from Staten Island that died in a car crash & for whatever reason, after already determining cause of death; the coroner decided to keep his brain in the office while returning the body to the family for burial.


Mind you, no one would've ever been the wiser except kids from the dead boy's school just so happened to have a field trip to said coroner's office. And the genius examiner had Jesse's brain in a clear jar with his damn name labeled on it out for display.

Yeah, you read that correctly. As in for show n' tell.

Oh but forget about the traumatized kids who saw their friend's brain in a jar and the family who realized that they had buried their child without a brain. The best part? Now the family's priest who refused to consider it a "proper burial" without the brain intact. So the parents had to dig up the body, put the brain inside the carcass and RE-bury their child.

Now, when I tell ya'll we're living through the end of days...
