Musician's head explodes trying to hit a high note
. . . it swelled & burst like a balloon


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

by PAT CRAIGERS / The National Enquirer.

A TALENTED TRUMPET player died on stage when he blew so hard trying to hit a high note that his head exploded!

Ugo Solari, 43, was playing the end of The Impossible Dream from Man of La Mancha when his head swelled and burst like a balloon.

"It was horrible," says Gilberto Franconi, who was sitting in the front row of the Il Torquo Jazz Club when the trumpeter's head burst open.

Shakes
"I get the shakes when I think about it. There was blood everywhere.

"I looked over at my girlfriend Theresa. There was blood dripping from her blonde hair and she was screaming.

"A woman on the other side of me had fainted. The man with her had vomited onto the table."

Witnesses say there were screams and a mad stampede for the exits when the audience heard a popping sound and saw blood splatter out of Ugo's head.

"Luckily, no one else was injured," says club owner Renaldo Vienna. "The stampede reminded me of some of those incidents at soccer games when people were crushed by rampaging crowds."

After the jazz concert disbanded in mayhem, frantic musicians followed the ambulance carrying Ugo to the hospital in Treviso, Italy.

Accidental
It was there that medical examiner Dr. Roberto Palizzi revealed that blood vessels in Ugo's skull had simply exploded when he blew too hard on the trumpet.

"The skull is especially thin and weak at the temples," says Dr. Palizzi. "The force of the exploding blood vessels actually blew out part of the skull and ruptured the skin.

"He had a hole in the side of his head the size of a large coin. Part of his brains seeped out of the opening."

Palizzi ruled the death "accidental" on Ugo's death certificate.

"I have heard of trumpet players who developed serious headache problems and had to give up playing the instrument," he says.

"The trumpet is unusual in that it demands a certain amount of force to play it. It is common to see a trumpet player's face turn red, even purplish from the exertion.

"However, to cause his head to explode in this manner is a fluke.

"I believe Ugo's skull was unusually fragile at the temple and this weakness caused the tragedy."

Pet Peeves.

Text talk on message boards. You have a fuckin' keyboard, I don't need "R U SRSLY" crap going on. Unless it's ironic. Then it's hilarious!

Assholes that think everything is someone else's fault, with zero self-awareness or responsibility.

The use of "then" instead of "than". RATM are better then RHCP. Aaaargh!

The use of "are" instead of "our". Are favorite band is RATM. Aaaaargh!

The use of "of" instead of "have". I could of gone to see RATM if they hadn't sold out. Aaaargh!

Self-important nobs who try to do difficult auto manoeuvres WHILE ONE HAND IS CLAMPING THE CELLPHONE TO THEIR FACE!

Not using blinkers to signal your intention. Hey! Numbnuts! My psychic abilities class was cancelled - I don't have a fuckin' clue where you wanna go!

People who steal ANYTHING from anybody else. That whole "I could work to earn money and buy it....OR....I'll just let you earn money to buy it - and then take it from you" attitude makes me fume. Parasite cocksuckers.

People who damage property, just 'cos. And if it's my car, ten times worse. You don't fuck with another man's automobile, you just don't, to paraphrase Vincent Vega.

When people do things that annoy me I try to sub consciously let them know by doing annoying things back.

Like my thing is chewing. So in class if someone is chewing like a horse I'll take my pen and make clicking noises with it every time they chew like an asshole. I don't care if it doesn't means anything its just my way of releasing the insanity in me.

As for the hair spray in the cubical every time she sprays that shit you could come up with something to do. And maybe after awhile she might notice. Like tap the walls on the cubical every time she does that.

Wrong!
My daughter who is now 17 was the perfect baby.
I don't say that because she was MY daughter,
I say that due to the fact that she didn't act out like most of the other diaper draggers.
Sure there were moments, but never any of those hissy fit rage like tantrums that I'm talking about. And acting out like that is the fault of the parent(s).


From the moment we brought her home, there was never any of that, "shhh... the baby's sleeping" crap.
She was brought up and brought into this world with loud music, barking dogs, ringing phones and laughing people. She adapted to our world.
Parents who change their life around to suit what they think are the needs of their newborn are weak. Change meaning shutting everything off, turning everything down and bringing their life to a stand still so their spoiled little brat can continue to scream, eat, sleep and crap.

You're kind of a dick, aren't you? And no, I won't migrate 3 feet to the left. There's someone else standing there.

If you're super tall, it would be nice if you staked claim to a spot early, so that you don't come at the last minute, or in the middle of a show, and forcibly push your way in and mess up other people's views. Sure, you don't have to, but it's the considerate thing to do.

And for the record, I'm 5'7", so if there's some girl who's like 5'1" standing behind me, I'll totally suggest that she move in front. It doesn't really make a difference to my viewing experience, but it could make a huge difference to hers.

Pet peeves:
Standing in line at the market while employees are walking around and talking to each other and not even noticing everyone in line.

Restaurant employees who just walk up to the table with glasses and start pouring waster (assumming I want water).

Waiters/Waitresses who forget about you (I called information once from the counter at Mimi's in Arcadia and watched our waitress pick up the phone-I asked for our bill and the entire staff looked at me like a terrorist as I walked out).

When standing in line for a concert, movie, ball game; people who talk and talk out loud about their lives and the event (I remember seeing Gwen and the boys at the 321 club back in..., we were so drunk that night; we went with Mark, you remember him, well he had gotten us in the the back door and...)

People who don't finish remaining food and leave it in it's original location rather than throwing it away. Example. I want to put some milk in my coffee, I pick up the milk carton and there is only 6 drops of milk. Example. I want to add pickles to my sandwich but there is only green juice in the pickle container.

Homeless people who ask for money who are wearing better clothes and shoes than me.

Ignorant people who think the popular, media-hyped music or movies of today are "classic" or "original". I could go into many examples, but I'm sure you people get the idea.

Seeing people swayed by peer pressure. That drives me crazy.

The MTV show "Cribs" - who ever thought anyone would want to watch a celebrity show off his house to people?

but probably the biggest one of all...

People who lie or lead you on. There is never an excuse for that bullshit.

when people dont put cds back in cases

when professors make you get all the way to your class, and then you find out that is was cancelled because there is a sign outside of the door when they could have emailed everyone and saved me the time of walking across campus

people who ask stupid questions in class that obviously everyone but them know the answer to

You know what I hate? Guys who think girls shouldn't do something, just cause they're girls, or cause they personally think it's unattractive. FYI- If you see me smoking at the show, I'm not trying to impress you.

I hate guys and girls who smoke. How's that. Well, don't hate the person, just the smoke. Gives me asthma.

And I hate when people use is instead of are.

Ex: Hey, now there is dogs running around!

And guys who try to win over girls by putting down their (the girl's) friends, as though convincing the girl their friend is a douche will improve their chances

The title of the thread is pet peeve's, not "please rant because because someone makes fun of your disgusting habit". A pet peeve, by definition, is a small, likely trivial, issue which annoys you. Plain fact of the matter is that a lot of guys think smoking is disgusting, and when they're not drunk you'll seem nothing more than an ash tray. It's not persecution. Smoking is a choice (I know because quite a 10 year. pack a day habit). you've chosen to have people hate on you. Get over it.

It is your right to smoke. It is anyone else's right to call you gross. Fair's fair.

Ignorant people who think the popular, media-hyped music or movies of today are "classic" or "original". I could go into many examples, but I'm sure you people get the idea.

I can relate. I will visit my in-laws and get grilled for hours on my reasoning for not seeing future classics such as "RV" with Robin Williams or if I go to concerts so much how come I don't like Celtic Woman?

I'll get called from one room to another to be put on the spot, "what was the name of the movie you went to go see?, it had subtitles right?, you like movies with sub-titles? Where did you guys go eat? Sushi, you like eating raw fish? It goes on and on up to the point where you start questioning yourself.

I'm a soccer fan (real football) and I hate it when people say soccer is a sport for pussies. Let's see you run like hell and avoid slide tackles to your shins and knees for 90 minutes straight.

I'm also a huge fan of electronic/dance music, like my favorite bands are The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, etc etc. I'm a senior in high school, and alot of high schoolers are so drawn in and obsessed with what's on the radio, so when they hear something they'd call "techno", they're like "what is this shit? turn it off!"

I hate it when people ask questions that they should know the answer too, sometimes because they ask it on a regular basis. Think before you ask.

I hate people who are constantly trying to one-up everyone all the time (How small is your penis, anyway?)

I hate people who present an opinion as factual information.

I hate people who turn every question into an opportunity for some sort of mental masturbation.

And finally, I hate anyone who constantly feels the need to publicly pat themselves on the back, or compliment their own achievements out loud. For example: *out loud* "Wow, I have excellent taste in everything. Just look at this beer I brought to your party". First of all, who are they talking to? Secondly, if it's good, someone will probably say so. If not, well it probably wasn't that great.

yablo's right. it makes sense to nobody. I don't even think it make sense to you. Just because you know something is not predictable doesn't mean you can predict that it will be unpredictable.

You're thinking about it in terms of something being unreliable. i.e. the bus rarely arrives exactly on time, thus you decide not to wait for it when you're on a tight schedule. That's not the same as "predicting" that the bus will not be on time. That makes no sense. You are conceding that there is lack of evidence to make a prediction. Big diference.

Also, technically, you're not predicting someone is unpredictable, you're describing them as unpredictable.

Yabs was thinking of it in a way that relates to time, while I was thinking of it in terms of behavior.


it doesn't matter in what sense you think of it. whether it be trying to predict when something will happen or what someone will do, you're still taking about foretelling an event. Foretelling that you can't foretell something isn't a prediction. That's the absence of a prediction.

Yeah, I think we've discussed this one before. I was always taught comma, period, etc goes inside the quotes. I hate that when I'm asking a question about a song or something, and it looks like the song has a question mark in it.

When you get a gift card, use that gift card to buy part of an item, you take the item home and it does not work. You take it back to the aforementioned store, they do not have a replacement for that item at ANY store in your metro area, and they REFUSE to give you all your money back in cash because part of it was that damn gift card.

My husband wants to kill himself because he can't get a video card from Best Buy, and he doesn't have enough money to buy the same card from another store. Motherfuckers. Oh, and now our computer won't work until he gets a goddamn new video card.

I totally feel ya on that one. When my sister and I were little my mom would always get mad when mayonnaise ended up on the entire knife handle. I'm not sure what the alternative was.

My other peeve is work related...when people aren't sure where incoming faxes go, so they just lay them on the table the fax machine sits on (eventually getting scattered around.) People, these are important documents, documents that I will later be blamed for when they come up missing. If you don't know whose box to put them in, lay them back on the fax trey so someone else can sort them!

I work for a hotel. We send out contracts. Contracts that need people's signatures on them. Last I checked, the people that book rooms with us, i.e. wedding parties, family reunions, teams, etc., don't have the technology required to send an e-signature. Unless it's to click the box that says "I agree with the above." Which won't work for us.

It's not like we're sending smoke signals here. Ass.
