Teenage Girls Take Bathroom Selfie while Robbing a Burger Restaurant


Now I've heard of stupid criminals before but nothing of this caliber! Earlier this spring, two Swedish teenage girls robbed a Hamburger restaurant in Halmstad. They covered their faces with balaclaves, grabbed a kitchen knife, and made off with almost $400. 

Their flaw though is contained in the picture above. They decided to take a pre-crime selfie with their phones which is kind of a dead giveaway that you did it! Especially if you posted it to Facebook.

Worlds First Bouncy House Hotel

 

Known by the name of "hotel rehearsal", it is an architectural art installation by artist Alex Schweder that was created as part of the Biennial of Americas. At the price of $50,000 a night though it's not cheap. Basically what it is is a small bouncy room suspended 22 feet from a van so not only is it incredibly expensive but it also seems highly unsafe. 
 

Don't worry though! It comes with a whole host of extra stuff! The package created by Denver's Curtis Hotel includes:
  • One weekend night in "the hotel rehearsal" floating hotel room
  • Luxurious airport transport via limousine, stocked with cocktails and munchies
  • In-room amenities like 1960's scarves and bell bottoms
  • Tiffany diamond pendant and earring set
  • A set of Swarovski binoculars
  • an i-Pad Mini with StarGazer app
  • two i-pod Nanos with 60's music
  • A party for 100 of your closest friends at Lloyd's Studio 54 lounge
  • an afternoon with a private personal shopper
  • and a Disco brunch for two at the Corner Office Restaurant and Martini Bar

Chipotle Pretends to Hack its Own Twitter Account?

Apperantly as part of some promotional thing Chipotle decided to "hack" its own twitter account on Sunday. I guess that's an interesting way to get people talking about your company? 
 

When asked why Chipotle decided to pull this stunt the retorted with, 
 

Little did they know that now what they thought was a harmless joke could become a problem if it starts trending. If brands start doing this as a promotion with hacks that "aren't harmful or hateful or controversial", then the real hackers would be forced to up the harm, hate, and controversy to show that the account did indeed get hacked.

Those hackers sure are attention seekers.

In an interview with Kingsport Times-News, Scott recounted "She fired one shot and my wife hollered and told her we're just turning around, then she shot again, [...] We got out of there pretty well as fast as we could. I still don't really know what her problem was. [...] I don't know what's happened to her in the past, but me, my wife and five kids weren't doing anything wrong. I know you can't shoot at somebody for turning around in your driveway."

Lost Dog Nurses Kitten Back to Health

Michelle Smith, an animal control officer in Anderson, South Carolina was responding to a call about a dog barking barking in a ravine behind Home Depot. But when she got there, she found a completely different surprise! It was a dog tending to a month old kitten and nursing it back to health!
 

Smith took these two adorable animals to the Anderson County animal shelter where the dog and kitten slept side by side that whole day.
 

They are still currently together in the shelter and although officials think the dogs milk won't be sufficient for the kitten, the shelter workers are now feeding the kitten with bottled milk.
 

Here's a video of the two cuties

Saturday in the United Kingdom, a woman was refused service at a McDonalds because she tried to ride her horse through the drive-thru! She was also accompanied by a girl on a pony but they were rudely turned away. 
 

In a fit of resistance against McDonalds, The woman then brought her horse into the DcDonalds building! According th the Greater Manchester Police spokesman, the horse then "ended up doing his business on the floor."

I wonder how the police handled this since it isn't illegal to ride a horse into a McDonalds and then have have it do its business on the floor.

So she is obviously trying to be the next Rebecca Black, but my question is why? Rebecca got an overwhelming amount of hate that I would think no one would want. Could it be the possibility of being well known? I guess we will never know.

Fox News Anchor Accidentally Hits Toddler In The Face With A Basketball


So, the story here is that baby basketball phenomenon Tidus was asked to show his basketball skills on Fox News. After his parents agreed and they were doing the show, one of the news anchors tosses the ball to Tidus and it ends up hitting the toddler in the face. This causes the poor baby to cry while his dad tries to comfort him. 

Hopefully the news anchor apologized off camera after he laughed it off on live T.V.

Woman Hiring Hitman to Kill Husband Takes the Situation WAY Too Lightly


An undercover Michigan State cop posing as a hitman arrests Julia Merfeld for trying to set up an appointment to kill her husband. Though Merfeld seems really laid back about the situation as she smiles occationally and even giggles.

The best part about this is that she doesnt even seem to have a reason for attempting to murder her husband. She was just tired of him and scared of how her family would react to her divorcing him.

Hopefully there isn't too many people like this in the world. . . right?

Last Year's Lottery Winner Leaves $10,000 Tip at Diner to Help Owner


About a week ago Bob Erb, who had won the Canadian lottery last year for $25 million dollars, was traveling through Saskatchewan on his way to bury his fathers ashes when he stopped at the Old West Express diner to rest. He started having a conversation with the owner Cliff Luther when he learned that Luther's 25 year old daughter had just been diagnosed with cancer.

Erb had also lost his child to cancer so the news stuck with him while he continued on his way. A couple days later he returned to the diner for some food when he went and paid for the bill with a check for $10,000 and said "If you need to get out there quickly [to see your daughter], this will help you."

Now isn't that one of the most uplifting stories you've ever heard? Lately all you hear on the news is how people are evil and can't be trusted but this story proves that there are still good people in the world.

Would you do the same if you were to win the lottery?
