    Injured

    Actor Jason Priestly, who starred in the 90s mega-hit Beverly Hills, 90210 with Tiffani Theissen, was involved in a serious race car accident which injured his spine, head and feet. The 32 year-old, crashed his car into a wall at a speed of nearly 180 mph (290 kmph) after hitting a slick patch on the track. Jason Priestly suffered a concussion, a broken nose, a broken spine (but not paralysis) and fractures in both feet. Jason has since had surgery, left the hospital and is undergoing physical therapy.

    Couple Newz

    After being spotted on more than one occasion looking quite cuddly, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are no longer keepin' their relationship a secret, according to Us Weekly. Jennifer Lopez and her husband Cris Judd separated in June of 2002. Ben and Jennifer got to know each other last winter while shooting the flick Gigli.

It seems to be abandoned, at least for now. You try to turn on the lamp, but the power is out. You explore the house.Several of the doors are locked, and there seem to be no beds, couches, or any other furniture to sit on. At last you come to a room that is not locked. You open the door and see something you did not expect.The room is bare save for three chairs. One has knives embedded in it, one is an electric chair, and the other one is swarmed with spiders. You are tired after searching for a place to stay and desire to sit and rest. Which chair do you choose? The electric chair cuz it won't kill you unless you flip a switch lol
