This is What Happens When Your Driving Student is a Big Fan of 'The Fast & The Furious'88 %367 votes
Try to watch this video without having a seething white-hot rage for both parties involved. Feel free to post in the comments about who was the bigger ass in this classic Seattle non-confrontational confrontation.
Via The LADbible:Indonesian police got an entire neighbourhood high (accidentally) after burning a 3.3-ton pile of cannabis just outside their office. Residents around West Jakarta were all intoxicated after the fumes created a giant cloud of smoke which then dispersed around the local area. Loads of people then reported to the police with headaches and feeling dizzy, not realising they were in fact high as a kite.
Via Uproxx:Earlier this week, a grand jury in Cass County, Mo. indicted 25-year-old Megan Blair Baker (pictured above) on charges of having sexual contact with a 17-year-old student. According to investigators, Baker, a teacher and the assistant wrestling coach at Cass High, had sex with the teen on the school bus. He later told all his friends about it (of course he did), which is how his parents found out. Not too long after that, the father of the teen reported the incident to investigators.
“We heard it happened on a school bus and the boy was openly bragging about it,” Sherwood Cass parent Linda Aldin said. “He was telling everyone he had sex with the woman.”
“It just really shocked us,” Aldin said. “I never dreamed that it would happen at our school.”
That's right—during spring break, Tinder usage on South Padre Island, Texas spikes nearly 2,500 percent. Call it the obvious winner (and, we suppose, loser) here. As of the 2010 census, the island was permanent home to just over 2,800 infinitely patient souls—but it swells to become essentially a small city each March. At its peak, 50,000 students have their run of the place, and from the looks of it, they're all on Tinder.
New Orleans and Miami might post numbers that look pitiful, but that's still up 25 percent, and it's because Tinder usage there is extremely strong throughout the year—and because those cities host what is essentially a year-round spring break. Boulder, meanwhile, gets our vote for Unexpectedly Horniest Place on the Planet.
Via Cool Material:Ninkasi Brewing’s latest beer: Ground Control. Last year, the brewery sent six vials of brewer’s yeast into space (77.3 miles up)—this was their second attempt to do so—and brought them back to brew up this Imperial Stout. Brewed with Oregon hazelnuts, star anise, cocoa nibs, and some astro-yeast, Ground Control is a full and flavorful stout. It will be available in select markets on April 13.
Between drunk Secret Service agents and Eleanor Holmes Norton, maybe we need to give all of Washington a refresher course in how to drive.
The D.C. delegate tried and failed to park her car outside the U.S. Capitol Wednesday, and the mess was all captured in the video above.
“If she parks like that she should not be a member of Congress anymore,” says one of the people watching the disaster.
In addition to being completely out of alignment with the rest of the vehicles, she apparently banged into the car next to her multiple times during the half-hour long debacle. Eventually she and her aide just walk away as if it’s all NBD.
Her office later told Roll Call that there were no damages and they left a card on the windshield so they could contact them.
Not sure that warrants the “worst parking job ever” award – a quick YouTube search reveals much worse – but it’s certainly up there in the rankings.
And Mr. Piggly Wiggly is theclear winner for recent parking lot fails. That one will be tough to beat.
An artist named Matthew Munson was snapping some photos around Washington, D.C. when he happened to catch some kids using the Vietnam Women’s Memorial as a jungle gym.
He posted the image to Facebook this week, and it has since sparked a heated debate online.
“I managed to take some decent photos and even a very powerful one of two little brats climbing over war memorial right in front of a veteran,” he wrote in the post.
Munson says the vets all appeared “hurt” as they watched the debacle, and he thinks the parents are to blame for this sign of disrespect.
“Certain memorials and statues are more positive and welcoming to kids and parents expressing their freedom and good vibes, other memorials (this one) focuses on the tragedies of war and how certain groups of people played a big role in helping others recover from it,” he said. “Having children step all over a wounded warrior is not an appropriate way to express the freedom our veterans fought for, in my opinion.”
Commenters on the post are taking both sides, some are horrified and others think everyone is blowing this out of proportion.
Here are a few opinions from Facebook:
“I love the pic with the kids: Speaks volumes to what we fought and fight for.” – Pipal Tri.
“Take those damn kids to Disney Land and not to a place of remembrance.” – Jill Kin
“They are just kids, and it’s just a statue. People invest way too much into idols and memorials.” – Stephen Budzash
“The level of disrespect that ensues towards or vets both alive and dead, their memorials. is sicking… and parents allow this to happen.” – Justin Burkhardt
The statue was unveiled in 1993 and is dedicated to women who served the country during the Vietnam War, many of whom were nurses.
If there has ever been a reasonable case for a plea of insanity, maybe it's this one.
Andrew Gilbertson is charged with robbing a Bank of America in October 2013 - which is perhaps the first bullet point in an insane person. I mean come on, there are SO many easier illegal ways to get money in 2015. While taking the stand this Wednesday, he reached into his pants to grab his own personal brand for a snack, as instructed to him by the Virgin Mary herself.
Unsurprisingly, the court was called into a recess, where a mental health expert was called in to analyze Gilbertson's behavior.
Here's a video report of the full story, which thankfully does not feature any actual footage of the "One Disturbed Man, One Cup" incident:
