An X Files supporting actor who beat, burned, raped, sodomized, mutilated and tortured his wife in Orange County during a four-day crack cocaine binge in 2005 has lost an appeal to overturn his conviction and a 144-year prison sentence.

Some Orange County daredevils at The Wedge in Balboa.

Before we begin, know that online marketplace LivingSocial thinks Orange County is a city, which is fine with me as long as PayPal can't figure out where to send my bills for purchases. The reason the wrong municipal designation is key is because it has landed this great big county of ours at No. 8 when it comes to LivingSocial's list of the top cities for thrill seekers in the U.S.
