Man Dies While Setting Record For Longest Time Spent Buried Alive, SIASD

March 5, 2012

A Sri Lankan man has died while trying to set a record for the longest time spent buried alive, police said Monday.

Police said Janaka Basnayake, 24, buried himself over the weekend with the help of family and friends in a trench sealed with wood and soil in the town of Kantale, about 137 miles (220 kilometers) north of Sri Lanka’s capital, Colombo. A local newspaper reported that the trench was 10 feet (3 meters) deep.

Basnayake was buried at around 9:30 a.m. Saturday. Police said that when he was brought to the surface at 4 p.m., he was unconscious and was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

It was unclear whether there is an official world record for the longest time buried alive.

Eye View Business, Stupid Is As Stupid Does

February 8, 2011

(CNSNews.com) – The announcement early Monday morning that America Online (AOL) is buying Arianna Huffington’s liberal Web site, The Huffington Post, for $315 million — $300 million in cash — left at least one conservative outraged.

“This proves AOL News has lost its mind,” said L. Brent Bozell III, president of the Media Research Center.

Huffington, who switched from being a conservative commentator to a “liberal/progressive” writer in the ‘90s, will lead the newly formed Huffington Post Media Group, which “will integrate all Huffington Post content with AOL Content, including news, tech, women, local, multicultural, entertainment, video, community, and more,” according to the news release issued Monday morning.“They must be in such dire straits that they’ve been blinded by the millions and think an acquisition of The Huffington Post is worth sacrificing credibility and objectivity,” Bozell said.

Stupid is as stupid does as AOL shares plummet with pending relationship issues.
