After cutting off his foot with a saw to avoid having to get a job, the man almost died from loss of blood. He hoped by cutting off his foot--and burning it--that he would be able to continue to claim unemployment benefits. But, once he's out of the hospital the work centre says that he will still have to get a job!

Conundrum Hot Springs, Colorado -- Quite the conundrum...
The US Forest Service says the cows were part of a herd that went missing last fall from the Gunnison National Forest and may have wandered into the cabin looking for shelter.
"I think we're going have to sleep on the snow tonight man the cabin is full of frozen cows..."http://kdvr.com/2012/04/18/frozen-cows-in-colorado-cabin-may-be-removed-using-explosives/

"Steve Huey" was suffering from an inoperable and fatal brain tumor. Doctors had given him only two months to live, so Huey decided to end his life sooner rather than face the pain. He wrote a suicide note and then placed the gun to his head and pulled the trigger.
Later, friends found him on the floor in a pool of blood. They called 911 and within hours, Huey was up and walking around. "His sense of humor was amazing, but even more amazing is his luck," remarked his doctor.
The chances of him shooting out his own brain tumor are 254 billion to one. The bullet missed all of the vital parts of the brain and only shot out the tumor. Friends and family have urged Huey to put his luck to good use and buy lots of lottery tickets.
"I tell him everyday 'go buy a lottery ticket' and 'go bet on a horse', but he just won't do it. Sometimes he can be so stubborn," said a close friend.
Doctors are cautioning to other terminal patients not to try what Huey did. They say there is no way that they would help themselves, they would only harm themselves severely.
Huey is currently writing a book and is planning a national book signing tour. Also in the works, a movie and a sitcom based on his story. "I am a very lucky guy and I plan to turn this miracle into some serious cash for myself," said Huey in an exclusive interview.
An auction is also in the works that will sell the gun, the hospital bill, and the tumor itself. "Any collector will love to own this tumor and should be willing to spend lots of money for it," added Huey.
