News of the Weird

From the most recent News of the Weird:

Officials at Somerville (N.J.) High School warned students in October to stop trying to get high by choking each other into unconsciousness. (With the so-called “California Knockout,” a student holds his breath for 10 seconds to get light-headed, after which a pal squeezes his neck to put him out.)

Go Somerville!

Tour of Somerville

Jonas Carney won the Tour of Somerville last weekend. Here’s the write up from the Star-Ledger, which will probably only be valid for another week or so. The funny thing about this article is that they interview a guy named Mark Garney, who I used to work with. He comes out for the race every year, but I’ve never managed to run into him. Maybe next year!
