A local Sacramento woman died while trying to win a Wii game console during a morning radio show contest. The story is here: http://www.sacbee.com/101/story/108430.html if you need a username and password use beesucks and beesucks.

I was thinking with all the press about the Chico hazing incident how could anyone think this was a good idea? Well, maybe if they spaced the water out with smaller quantities it would be safe. Well, I guess not.

To top it all off, during the contest a nurse called to warn that it was dangerous to drink too much water but it was ignored by the radio station staff by the fact that the contestants had signed waivers although they were never warned that their health was in any danger.

At least he didn’t kill himself unlike this Darwin Award nominee that tried to electricute some pesky moles in his yard with a 380 volt power line.

BTW, What the heck is going on in Germany?
