Death by Selfie

Wednesday, July 8th, 2015 | Stupid People with Comments Off on Death by Selfie

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.

Man Dies Launching Firecracker Off His Head

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015 | Stupid People with Comments Off on Man Dies Launching Firecracker Off His Head

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.

Man Ignores Warning Jumps in Lake and Killed by Alligators

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015 | Stupid People with Comments Off on Man Ignores Warning Jumps in Lake and Killed by Alligators

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.

The Biggest Paper Airplane You Will See Today

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.

Walmart Makes ISIS Cake but Not a Confederate Flat Cake

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015 | Offbeat and Weird with Comments Off on Walmart Makes ISIS Cake but Not a Confederate Flat Cake

It’s a crazy world we live in. Walmart recently announced that they won’t sell items that bear the Confederate Flag but they had no problem making a cake with the ISIS symbol on it for one Louisiana man.  Chuck Netzhammer ordered the image of the Confederate flag on a cake with the words, “Heritage Not Hate,” but was denied by his local Walmart. Instead he changed his order to a cake bearing the ISIS symbol and Walmart delivered.

Walmart has since come out and stated that the employee wasn’t aware of what the symbol meant and the cake should not have been made. Of course in banning the flag they stated they didn’t want to offend anybody.

I wonder if they would have made CNN”s version of the ISIS flag on a cake? That wouldn’t have offended anybody.

 

Python Dies After Eating 30-pound Porcupine

Sunday, June 28th, 2015 | Stupid Animals with Comments Off on Python Dies After Eating 30-pound Porcupine

A gigantic African Rock Python died over the weekend in South Africa after ingesting a 30-pound porcupine.  It is assumed that the quills from the porcupine punctured the snakes digestive tract. The python was found dead by a mountain biker at the Lake Eland Game Reserve in South Africa.

I don’t know what kind of neighborhood you live in but I barely like riding my bike around here with the teenagers hanging out by the corner store let alone with massive porcupines and 13 foot long snakes lurking about. That is some other kind of living if you ask me.

Sadly , the African Rock Python that became an overnight sensation has been found dead. The 3.9m long Python was found...
