This gem was making a few rounds on the net today. A woman apparently believed her guest was being held hostage in her apartment and called 911. When police arrived they found that her guest was only watching Bonanza on tv with the volume turned up very loud. I can’t imagine what it would take to convince me that Lorne Greene, Hoss and Little Joe had holed up in my living room but she must have been convinced. I couldn’t find a source so maybe it’s just made up, who knows.
If you were recently driving your Audi down Laurel Canyon Boulevard in reverse, police wan to talk to you. The car seen here in this video is an Audi with dealer plates. There is a man and a woman in the car and it was driven backwards for two approximately two miles. Police are not impressed and are searching the occupants of the car.
I know nothing about the band Rewind or of James McElvar and had never heard of them prior to today. I am guessing that they aren’t doing so well financially after reading this story. How could a rock star not afford £45? I work a dead end job and could probably find £45 under the seat cushions in my couch.
To avoid paying a luggage fee this Einstein put on 12 layers of clothes and ended up collapsing during a flight. Here is a list of what James McElvar was wearing to avoid coughing up gum money: 6 T-shirts, 4 jumpers, 3 pairs of jeans, 2 pairs of sweat pants, 2 jackets and 2 hats. This of course caused him to pass out twice before the plane touched down in Glasgow where he was taken to a hospital.
It’s amazing what lengths people will go to save money for makeup and hair gel.
You can’t even make this stuff up. Jenny Peak, 33 of Chicago beat herself up on a $12 bet from her stepfather. When police arrived at the residence she was hitting herself in the head with a crowbar, punching herself in the stomach and chest and bouncing off the walls. Officers had to take her down with a stun gun to stop the beating, of herself, by herself.
The stepfather is of course going to pony up the $12 for the bet. Nice guy. What he won’t be doing is paying the $4,000 in medical bills. You know for the fractured skull and missing teeth. To add salt to the wounds he is also having her charged with felony property damage for broken table.
The length people will go to feed their own over inflated egos and capture that perfect selfie. Anna Krupeynikov a 21 year old in Russia cashed her chips in to get that perfect photo to show off on social media. She was on a bus tour of Moscow when she disappeared from the pack to get take a picture of her mug. She ended up leaning against a fence which gave way and she fell 40 ft to her death off of a bridge. No word how the photo turned out.
This isn’t the first story of an idiot killing themselves taking a selfie. Earlier this month a man was struck by lightning in the mountains in the UK, he was carrying a metals selfie stick. Might as well been carrying a bag of steel golf clubs. In another story a woman in Russia was killed when she was taking a selfie with gun at her head. The gun of course went off and that is that. No more selfies for her.
The moral of the story is, go old school and have another person take a damn photo of you. Chances are you will probably live and get chance to bother your friends and family with the boring snapshots of your ugly mug.
After every 4th of July weekend there are a number of stupid people and firecracker stories but this year Devon Staples from Maine takes the home the grand prize. He would if he was still with us but somebody thought they would launch a firecracker off of their head and was killed instantly. Not just any firecracker it was a mortar tube. I would wager a bet that Devon now knows how mortar tubes work. His brother reported to a new station that he was holding a lighter when the mortar tube accidentally went off.
When there are signs up stating no swimming because of dangerous alligators why would you jump in the water? What would posses you to yell “f” the alligators and jump in the water with them? You could ask 28 year old Tommie Woodward of Texas except for the fact that he was eaten by those alligators. Despite warning placed on signs and from other people Tommie decided to roll the dice and swim with the alligators. The following quote pretty much sums things up. In the end at least Tommie became the first alligator fatality in Texas since 1836, so at least he’s got that going for him.
Justice of the Peace Rodney Price claimed:
He removed his shirt, removed his billfold … someone shouted a warning and he said ‘blank the alligators’ and jumped in to the water and almost immediately yelled for help.
ROOSEVELT, Utah — Just when you thought Utah couldn’t get any weirder it steps things up a notch with this stupid criminal video. A reward is being offered by these dog owners to identify the man that keeps breaking into their dog kennel. The man appears to be bringing the dog re fried beans and chicken nuggets. Oh and to add some spice to the occasion he appears to be dressed in women s tights that don’t cover his lower body all the way. The owners are trying to guess what he wants with the dog and assume it’s not to play your aver fetch game.
This has to be the biggest paper airplane you will see today. I defy you to show me one bigger. I shouldn’t say that because I am sure if anybody was actually reading this they could find a bigger one. The original news feed labelled this at the Australian Space Program but I didn’t think that was fair. I didn’t think they are that far along yet.
