Update and Insanity!

Remember that story I posted a couple weeks ago about the two midget wrestlers in Mexico who were killed by a prostitute? Yeah, that one. Well, police have a suspect, and get this, she's 65 years old! She's denying the charges, of course, but the story gets a bit better. Not only did she slip the wrestlers some eye drops into their drinks when neither wrestler was looking, but she had an accomplice. His name? "El Gordo," or "The Fat One!"

That's too good to be true! Awesomeness in the making, and I can totally see this becoming a movie already. Anyway, "The Fat One" is still on the loose, so keep an eye out all you Mexican midget wrestlers...he's coming for you! By the way, anyone looking for a good time from a 65-year-old prostitute is asking for something to go awry! Sheesh! All I can say is thank the gods this didn't happen in the states!
Anyway, on to bigger and better stories, when you go to the amusement park and ride a roller coaster, do you ever wonder, could I inline skate down this thing? Well, here's a guy who not only wondered but did the seemingly impossible and knowingly insane! Dirk Auer of Germany: just one reason you should read more British news!

Dirk traveled to the Mammoth roller coaster at Trips Drill theme park in Stuttgart, Germany to pull of this amazing feat! Known affectionately as an adrenaline junkie, it took Dirk 110 hours of sweat and dedication to fashion these amazing custom inline skates so that he could spend the next minute reaching speeds of 56 mph riding the full length of the 860 meter track!

Dirk, the crazy 36-year-old German had previously won the world's record of top speed inline skating for reaching speeds of 190 mph as he was dragged behind a Porsche GT2!! Wow, this guy is some kind of awesome! That is just incredible!

So what's next for this guy? He's not sure, but if I had to guess, I'm thinking it will involve skates, a 747, and a very, very long rope! We'll see, but he may want to keep rubbing that lucky horseshoe just in case!
