(NEWSER) – Miriam Tucker's last colonoscopy yielded quite a treasure: a 1.03-carat round brilliant cut diamond, worth $5,000. But don't go scheduling an appointment with your gastroenterologist in the hopes that you, too, will strike it rich. Tucker, you see, had accidentally swallowed the diamond first. The 80-year-old attended a fashion show fundraiser in Tampa on Saturday, and bought a $20 glass of champagne with a bauble inside. Of the 400 glasses, 399 contained a $10 cubic zirconia, reports the Tampa Tribune. As luck would have it, Tucker's glass held the one real diamond.

Metallica's new 3D movie won't only be hitting big screens later this year - it will be hitting very big screens. The metal icons announced Wednesday that "Metallica Through the Never" will be shown in every IMAX theater in North America for a full week starting September 27th.
The band says there really is no better way to experience the film, which they promise will deliver "an unprecedented and very unique visit to the movies." Still, any Metallica fans who doesn't catch "Through the Never" in IMAX will be able to see it in standard 3D theaters starting October 4th.
The film was originally due out in August, but it appears there is still some post-production to be done as the band says they're currently editing and putting the finishing touches on the project.
Metallica filmed "Through the Never" last summer over three concerts in Vancouver. The movie combines live footage from the shows with a story about a fictional member of the band's crew who is sent out on a mission that unexpectedly turns his life "completely upside down."
I can't beileve that CBS/Houston would have even went that low. All they have against the OKC Thunder is "Is this cheerleader too fat"? I will tell you I think she's fine. But I just can't believe they would go so low to attack one of our Thunder Girls.

UPDATE: Evidently CBS/Houston has pulled the article. Thank you all for joining us in support of Kelsey and the Oklahoma City Thunder!
Kevin Durant is tired of finishing second.
You wouldn't know it from his often jovial demeanor or warm smiles (even his
technicals are pleasant), but Durant isn't satisfied with where he is now. All
we need do is take a gander at the latest cover of Sports Illustrated to know that.
Adrianne Haslet-Davis is a 32 year old dancer who lost everything five inches below her knee on her left leg because two poor excuses for humans decided to bomb the Boston Marathon last week.
Whatever the reason for the bombing, it obviously didn't work. We might have lost three lives and some lives have changed forever, but they did not break the city, the nation, or their victims. They under-estimated how strong good people can be!
Take Adrianne for instance. She lost her foot and part of her leg, but guess what?
She's vowed to not only dance again… but run the Boston Marathon next year! Here's what she said:
'I can't let some[one] come along and steal my whole life. So, I'll dance again. And next year, though I've never been a runner, yes, I plan to run the marathon. Dancing is my life. Yeah, having my foot blown off, that really sucks. But I can't wallow in woe is me.'
So was it worth it, bombers? NOPE. Just like it never is!
Maybe next time would-be terrorists (and REAL terrorists) will understand that nothing good will ever come to their cause by doing atrocious things like this, but everything good will end up going to whatever they're fighting!
