A 40-year-old woman in Moscow must be extremely happy with her decision to get silicon breast implants five years ago. And not just because her tatas look great in a tank top. Apparently, her implants saved her life. When she and her husband got in a fight earlier this week, he flew into a rage, picked up a knife and stabbed her in the left breast, apparently going for her heart. But because of her implants, the knife didn’t reach her vital organs. Her surgeon confirmed that if she hadn’t had a boob job, she would have died in the stabbing. Egads. [Gawker]
Bizarrely, this isn’t the first woman who owes her life to her implants. More cases after the jump.

Just two hours after seeing her conviction for murder overturned, Amanda Knox was released from prison in Perugia, Italy, after being held there since 2007. Upon her release, she thanked those “who shared my suffering and helped me survive with hope. Those who wrote, those who defended me, those who were close, those who prayed for me.” From there, she reportedly headed to Leonardo da Vinci airport, and is thought to be on a flight back to the United States via London.

“It was two in the morning. I was living in Orange County at the time and was asleep with my wife. My two-year old at the time was in another room. I opened my eyes and there was a naked man wearing my leather jacket eating a Fudgesicle in front of my bed. I know it sounds funny … but it was horrifying.”
—Nicolas Cage talks at the Toronto Film Festival about why the script for his new movie “Trespass,” about a family whose home is invaded, resonated with him. Oh man, that does sound scary. Apparently, Nic was able to talk the Fudgesicle dude into leaving his house and was able to call the police. Perhaps this guy would like to make a date with the intruder who broke into Celine Dion’s home and took a bath? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
“Surprise! I shaved your head while you slept!” are not exactly the words a woman longs to hear after a fight with her boyfriend. After being kicked out by his girlfriend following a fight, 26-year-old Florida man, David Bustos, broke into her apartment and decided to give her a buzz cut with his electric hair clippers while she slept. She woke from her slumber when he accidentally cut her scalp with the clippers. She fought Bustos off until he hightailed it out of there. He was later apprehended and charged with domestic battery. Authorities found sections of braided hair on her bed. Let’s hope for the sake of womankind that this was Bustos’ last haircut. [Gawker] Keep reading »
Jack Shepherd may drink heavily. He may have resolved not to press the button, and made a slew of other assorted decisions that led to a castaway’s demise. But the #1 thing that Jack would never do? Punch a woman. Unfortunately, it appears that Matthew Fox, who played the iconic character on “Lost,” might not be able to say the same thing. Fox has been arrested for allegedly punching a female bus driver, 29-year-old Heather Borman. This apparent altercation went down Saturday night when Fox tried to board a private party bus in Cleveland, Ohio, when he was not with the party that had rented it. Fox and the driver exchanged words, and then Fox allegedly punched her in the chest and stomach. The driver struck back, supposedly breaking her hand. At which point the police were called. “This was my self-defense,” Bormann said to TMZ. “This was the only way I could protect myself … from a man beating up on a woman.” Guess we’ll have to wait and see how this case develops. In the meantime, I will hope it is not true and be incredibly disgusted if it is. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
