Autopsy Shows That “Macho Man” Randy Savage Died Of Natural Causes While Driving His Jeep

R.I.P. Macho Man.


A medical examiner’s autopsy of former pro wrestler “Macho Man” Randy Savage shows he died of natural causes due to heart disease, the Florida Highway Patrol announced Thursday.
According to a Highway Patrol report after the May 20 traffic accident the day he died, the 58-year-old “may have suffered a medical event,” which was confirmed by the autopsy.

The cause of death was atheriosclerotic cardiovascular disease — a thickening of artery walls that can lead to heart attack or sudden cardiac death.

A toxicology report showed acetominophen, caffeine, dhydrocodeine, doxylamine, doxylamine metabolite(s) and hydrocodone, and a blood alcohol concentration of 0.03 grams per decaliter, Sgt. 1st Class Steve Gaskins of the Highway Patrol said in a statement. He gave no further details about the toxicology report.

Gaskins said the autopsy report will be included in the traffic homicide report, which “should be released in the next several weeks.”

Savage, who lived in Seminole, Florida, lost control of his Jeep while driving on Florida State Route 694 in Pinellas County in the early morning hours of May 20. The vehicle jumped a median and “collided head-on with a tree,” the Florida Highway Patrol said. He died in Largo Medical Center.

May your flying elbows be accurate, your ad-libs be passionate, and your Slim Jims be snappy.

Charlie Sheen Took Steroids While FilmingMajor League, World Pretends To Be Shocked

We really hate to add fuel to the Crazy Chaz fire, but we think we’ve finally cracked the code on what makes Charlie Sheen so….Charlie Sheen-like. The actor recently admitted to Sports Illustrated that he took steroids to prep for his role in the 80s baseball classic, Major League. Yes, it’s kinda like a serial killer admitting that he cheated at Scrabble, but bear with us. During filming, Sheen said he was prone to fits of intense irrational rage. See guys! He’s not nuts, he’s just method! Somebody needs to tell him that the steroid thing doesn’t help for every role, though.

“Let’s just say that I was enhancing my performance a little bit,” he said of the shoot. “It was the only time that I did steroids. I did them for like six or eight weeks. You can print this, I don’t give a f–k. My fastball went from 79 [miles-per-hour] to like 85.” But he claims to have stopped juicing after becoming unable to control his temper, especially when dudes made fun of the mullet haircut he sported for the movie. “I didn’t like the haircut because it generated so many comments in bars. I’ve got enough of that already. Add [steroids] to the mix, and it’s a recipe for a fistfight.”

Let that be a lesson to you, little leaguers: too much steroids gives you tiger blood. Err, wait, come back kids! That’s a BAD THING!

ITCN Asia 2010

ABOUT ITCN ASIA – Growth from a country event to a regional event

From its inception in 2001, ITCN Asia, now being organized for the 10th consecutive year, has grown up as the biggest IT & Telecom extravaganza of Pakistan. Most powerful brands of the world will showcase their state-of-the-art products and services which would allow the user community to get exposure to a wide range of technology and solutions under one roof. Most importantly, it would provide an opportunity for business-to-business alliances, leveraging their mutual strengths. ITCN Asia Exhibitions & Conferences have been playing a pivotal role in landmarking the image of Pakistan on the world IT Map, bringing in huge foreign and local investments in the Country.

Over the years ITCN Asia has grown from a country event to a regional event. Just a few years ago there were very few companies with quality certifications. Today, we have over 100 ISO certified companies, the thrust on quality was continued with two new projects targeted to take five companies to CMM level 5 and 30 companies to CMMi level 3 and above.

// In addition to Quality certifications and standardization processes, the industry requires Human Resource, Space and Bandwidth. We have an approved Public Sector Development project under which training programs, tailored to the specific needs of the Industry, are implemented by the Pakistan Software Export Board (PSEB). In addition to this, several other HR development programs are planned through the Telecom R&D Fund, where existing IT graduates are provided opportunity to seek apprenticeship and become more productive. Higher Education Commission created stronger Industry-Academia linkages and took other steps so that the quality of fresh graduates was improved.

Software Technology Parks (STPs) are being set up in all the major cities. In Islamabad one International Technology Park (ITP)is already in operation in Awami Markaz, while land has already been earmarked for other STPs. In Lahore, certain areas have been identified and are being finalized. In Karachi an ITP is already in operation in Caesar Tower, while, land has been acquired opposite Civic Centre for a 47 storey high IT Tower, where construction would commence soon. On the bandwidth front, until very recently, there was only a single optic fiber cable for International connectivity. Today, we have 3 separate submarine cables for International connectivity. This will provide the much needed resilience to our data networks.

// ITCN Asia 2010 Exhibition is, where you will see newer & latest technologies and solutions in action. It is the foremost electronic business event for the enterprise decision makers in this region. Spanning 3 days on 3 – 5 August 2010, the Exhibition at Karachi Expo Centre, forms the core of IT Industry of the world. Yet another opportunity to showcase IT & Telecom products and interact with serious traffic, ITCN Asia 2010 is a one-stop shop where you can “test drive” all the products on your hit list. The Exhibition would serve as a comprehensive showcase of the latest in technology, equipment and machinery as well as allied services, simultaneously providing investors with a definite outlook of the regional IT & Telecom Industry and an opportunity to meet their prospective counterparts and business partners.

ITCN Asia 2010 is part of ITCN series that catapulted the local IT Industry, introducing Karachi as the regional IT hub attracting major IT players from all over the world.
