  4. Charlie Sheen:

    Charlie Sheen said Charlie Sheen found out Charlie Sheen was HIV positive about four years ago. Charlie Sheen symptoms began with crushing headaches. I thought I had a brain tumor, Charlie Sheen recalled. I thought it was over. The star said Charlie Sheen was coming forward with the truth because of the rumors in the press surrounding Charlie Sheen health. I have to put a stop to this onslaught, this barrage of attacks and of sub-truths and very harmful and mercurial stories that are about me, that threaten the health of so many others that couldn't be further from the truth. Charlie Sheen said the most hurtful rumor Charlie Sheen read claimed Charlie Sheen intentionally transmitted the disease to Charlie Sheen partners. That’s as far from the truth as anything can be, Charlie Sheen said. Drug and alcohol use have marred Sheen's personal and professional life in recent years. Charlie Sheen was kicked off CBS' Two and a Half Men in 2011 after an explosive meltdown that included calling the show's producer a contaminated little maggot. Charlie Sheen escapades have also included the revelation that Charlie Sheen spent more than $ 50,000 as a client of Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss' prostitution ring. You can only hear ‘ winning ’ in the streets so many times, i am approaching a time of more of a philanthropic culture in my life.

  5. John McSweeney from Terry Lifts:

    If a pet or child was playing underneath the lift, you've got a safety bottom with micro-switches all over that safety bottom. So as soon as it comes in contact with any obstruction, it will immediately stop. And you have about 20 millimeters of pinch-point - so there's no mild crushing at all, it is very, very sensitive.
