Interesting.

Can someone just validate this for me from a second news source. Just so I know this isn't a big joke.

Want to buy a bridge? Ocean front property? I've got some great used cars for you --- owned by little old ladies who drove them only on Sundays.

I think this guy just must be a big fan of the film Scanners.

The X-files once had an episode on head-explosions :P it was caused by a secret government facilitity. The remedy was to drive and not stop driving, the doppler effect would safe you :)

As a real X-phily should know, the episode is Drive:

Scully: "There's no gunpowder residue... No carbon stippling. There seems to be no evidence of an entry wound whatsoever."
Coroner: "There is none. It's all exit, but how that could be...?"
Scully: "I'm finding what look like fragments of petrous bone embedded in the remaining portion of the auditory canal. In fact, I seem to be looking straight through to the osseous labyrinth or what's left of it."
Coroner: "It's almost like a little bomb went off in her ear."
Scully: "May I?"
Coroner: "Please."
Scully: "There seems to be some kind of tumefaction within the lateral sinus." [Scully examines the body and notices blood welling up from the ear, without warning an explosion of blood bursts onto Scully's scrubs]

Where have you been living, in a cave? People's heads explode all the time. I never go out in public without a spare towel to wipe off the mess. Between exploding heads and spontaneous human combustion, it's not safe to walk the streets.

Kids snorting pop rocks and soda explode all the time. Seriously, cerebral hemorrhages can be spectacular, but exploding skulls? Nerp.

Apparently you are also supposed to be very sceptical about .edu references AG :) Never trust someone from MIT, they are trying to mess with your sanity :P
