I was all excited for about half a second as I noticed Perth had ranked a mention over at Boing Boing

Beer bong tragedy has entire city of Perth in shock
A beer-thirsty Australian gentleman, inpatient with gravity, employed a mechanical contraption to rapidly deliver beer into his gullet using a pump powered by an electric drill. The device proved so effective that the high-pressure jet of beer shooting down his throat ripped a hole in his stomach. Authorities responded by warning people not to use high-pressure machines to drink beer this Christmas.
