As you know, mental_floss is on a mission to help people feel smart. Well, it's a shame we couldn't get to Roderick Vecsey of Connecticut before he was charged with second degree assault after throwing a carrot at his wife. The carrot hit her in the eye and as of this story's printing (hours later), she was still blind in that eye. Not a very smart thing to do. I guess on the bright side, maybe he should apply for a Guinness World Record for most blindings by carrot - one.
