Meanwhile in New Zealand… it’s “silly season,” the summer months when people are doing a lot of drinking and celebrating.

Apparently they are also doing some pretty stupid stuff.

The NZ Herald recently spoke with a patient flow co-ordinator at Middlemore Hospital in Auckland, and learned about all the dumb accidents they have been seeing lately.

For instance, a man was mowing his lawn when the blades got stuck on sticks and grass. He tried to remove the debris with his hand, and the blade shattered his bones. (He didn’t lose his fingers.)

Among other incidents they have seen are people sticking their tongues in blenders, smashing windows to break into their own homes, chopping their fingers when trying to cut frozen hamburger patties, and a number of chainsaw-related accidents.

“Summer is a time where we get a lot of sporting injuries, but we’ve also got lots of injuries that happen because people don’t engage their minds,” the hospital said.

The 22-year-old man from Dunedin, New Zealand lost a poker bet with his friends. The punishment? Change his name. According to his friends though, they didn't think he'd actually do it.

He did.

The bet actually happened in 2010 as did the legal name change, but the man only found out about it when he had to renew his passport recently. When he received his new passport, there was his new name, in all it's legal glory:

Full Metal Havok More Sexy N Intelligent Than Spock And All The Superheroes Combined With Frostnova.

Mr. Frostnova is now the most recent entry into a long list of strange name submissions that have appeared in New Zealand's official registry. Other names include Majesty, King, Knight, Princess, Justice, Anal, V8, 89, Mafia No Fear, Lucifer, full stop and *. Yep, just a simple asterisk as a first name.

What's with the Diablo II, you ask? Well, that would be a sorceress casting none other than her level 6 spell, Frost Nova.
