Man plays videogames, falls asleep on a baby photo



Emanuel Lawrence faces charges of aggravated manslaughter after a pot-fueled gaming binge caused him to fall asleep ... on his daughter. In a night of activity that police are calling "irresponsible," Lawrence smoked marijuana and played his Xbox 360 until 6am before crashing on a small girl's head.

The unemployed Lawrence was watching the kids while their mother worked a day job and went to night school. Forty-five minutes after falling asleep, he received a call asking him to feed his daughter Jaidyn. He did so in a sleepy state, then put the infant back in his own queen sized bed and fell asleep again.

When Lawrence awoke, he discovered he'd slept on the girl and suffocated her. He then had the genius idea of covering up the death by moving the baby back to the crib where it should have been sleeping in the first place, hoping to make it look like cot death out of "fear of being arrested." He was arrested.

I know this isn't supposed to be funny but ... no, forget it.

They're finally selling real-life Mario Karts

To be a kid again. Or, a 70-pound adult. That's what it'll take to enjoy the Super Mario Kart Ride-On Vehicle, available in March at Toys"R"Us for $199.99. The kart has working pedals, can go in reverse, and there are tires for on-and off-road use. Most important of all, this thing plays sounds from Mario Kart. Hot damn! I want to see videos of some kids' years being made. [Via Tiny Cartridge]more
