    I know this is someone's son, brother, friend, etc., but. ... Jeez.

    18-year-old finds an old bullet proof vest in a garage. Puts it on and tells friend to "shoot me." She does, and the bullet goes through the edge of the vest and kills him. Hilarity doesn't ensue. She faces involuntary manslaughter charge.

    Every knows you don't start with a handgun...you pull out the BB gun or air rifle first (like I did with my buddy's back brace in middle school).

    Didn't this kid know that getting shot while wearing a bulletproof vest often results in at least a broken rib or two? Best case scenario for this dude would have likely resulted in an emergency room visit.

    Terrible that the guy died, but what a dope.

    Maybe i watch too many crime shows but this story sounds fishy and that chick looks like the kind of cold hearted psycho that would kill someone for the thrill.

    And more importantly -- she is nowhere close to a 6 and "no, I would not....."

    I realize the Muslim debate will never get settled, but can we have some kind of treaty on whether and when to bring back zombie threads?
