New Zealand Woman Becomes Paralyzed From ‘Hickey’ On Neck. HEAR THAT, YOUNGSTERS?

January 26th, 2011

Yesterday, News 12 Long Island reported that a New Zealand woman became paralyzed after receiving a ‘hickey’ on her neck. It was reported that after getting the ‘hickey’ she had lost use of her extremities on one side of her body (or use of the entire side of her body, I not sure which). She quickly went/was taken to the hospital and the doctors determined that a clotted artery in her neck or small stroke (or something anyhow) had been caused by her partner giving her (a severe?) ‘hickey.’ The doctors/hospital prescribed and administered some type of anti–coagulant blood medicine and sometime thereafter, luckily for her, she regained use of her temporarily paralyzed body parts.

So, to the youngsters in the crowd [regardless of age] that may read this blog, the next time your partner/lover/bf/gf is going at it with your neck, aside from the hideous mark it leaves on your neck, you may live to regret that ‘hickey’ in more ways than one! :)

When the Suicide Leap and Fall Doesn’t Kill…

January 2nd, 2011.

This evening it was reported that a man on Manhattan’s West Side attempted suicide by jumping from the top of a building. However, he survived the attempt as his fall was apparently broken by an accumulated pile of trash that had not been collected due to the recent large snowfall in the city. I suppose we could surmise this one as: When the suicide leap and fall doesn’t kill, maybe the resulting humiliation will - or maybe it will lead to more worthwhile pursuits, anyhow.

Both WCBS 880 AM and WINS 1010 AM radio reported that a man attempted suicide by leaping from the top of a building near the intersection of West 45th Street and Eighth Avenue in New York City. As a result of the heavily reported and much maligned city neglect of trash collection subsequent to the fifth largest snowfall/blizzard in NYC’s history (or something like that), the man survived the fall by landing on a large pile of trash and is now reported to be in stable condition in a NYC hospital.

I guess it wasn’t his time to go.

Hopefully and no doubt the event will give the man a new outlook on life. Let’s hope he uses his remaining time and energies in the pursuit of more worthy endeavors.
