The cave had it all, everything Fred Strunk and his work crews needed to grow 100 pounds of marijuana every two months. Row after row of white-bright grow lights were powered by "free" electricity via an illegal splice into utility lines. An indoor irrigation system was nearly an engineering marvel. A ventilation system controlled humidity, while a security system featured a bank-vault-like entrance, with security cameras placed everywhere. Strategically located were escape hatches should lawmen come knocking. And there was the cave itself, a rock fortress shielding the illegal activity. Strunk's pot harvests, without a doubt, replaced tobacco and vegetables as Trousdale County's biggest cash crop, investigators said.

Two rooms, each 100 yards long(!). They found 850 plants.

If only they had used their powers for good, man! Like, wow, you know, totally...

Also, a new study shows that sex really IS the source of all evil in the world:

A 37-year-old man remained in police custody Tuesday, charged with a violent assault against his former girlfriend. He has testified that his only weapon was a dildo.

The 28-year-old victim remained in the hospital after suffering a concussion, two broken fingers and several cuts. According to local newspaper Firda, she told police she feared for her life during the assault.

The defendant appeared in the Fjordane court in the scenic western town of Nordfjordeid on Monday. He told said he was sorry for his actions, and attempted to downplay the assault.

"It lasted 10 to 15 minutes, max," he told the court. "I didn't hit her with anything other than a dildo."

I can only imagine if this had happened in the USA then this dude would have been blaming GTA : San Andreas.

(For those who don't know, in San Andreas one of the many weapons you can get is a large, purple, double ended dildo. There is a wonderful irony to beating both pimps and cops to death with it.)

The crazy thing is, the dildo has about the same power level as the katana. Three hits to kill. Wassup with that!!

yeah, I love that house/cave. I'd own that place in a heartbeat if I could.

Not...quite...sure what I'd do with it.

Weld the door that leads from the basement to the house shut, then open up a techno nightclub called "The Underground."
