Remember when postal workers used to have a reputation for going POSTAL? 26-year-old Rachel Meyers is a U.S. Postal Service worker and amateur bikini model in New York and she's singlehandedly trying to bring that back. Rachel went to Century 27 Beauty Salon in Manhattan last week to get her hair done and she felt like her stylist BOTCHED it. So she started yelling that they'd knotted her hair and then she went OFF. She started screaming at everyone, smashing beauty products, and throwing chairs, hair dryers, and other beauty products around. And she was in her post office uniform the whole time. Most people got out of her way, but a 52-year-old woman who was getting her hair done at the time took a curling iron to the leg, which left her with a cut and a bruise. Rachel was arrested and charged with five misdemeanors, including assault, harassment, and criminal possession of a weapon. She could be looking at up to a year in jail.
Being at the beach can bring out the kid in you and apparently it can also KILL you. 26-year-old Adam Pye was hanging out at St. Francis Beach in Half Moon Bay on Monday. It's a State Beach just south of San Francisco. And for some reason he dug a HUGE hole in the sand and by 5:00 PM it was ten to 12 feet deep. And he was standing at the bottom when the WALLS started caving in. He started screaming, so people ran over to help, including his friends and family. But apparently that made the walls cave in MORE, until he was BURIED ALIVE. Around 40 people tried to dig him out, using buckets and their bare hands. And firefighters were there within five minutes to help. Eventually there were over 30 of them. But it took 10 to 15 minutes just to clear the sand away from his head. By the time they got him fully out, he'd been buried for over 30 minutes. Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene. Just last month, another guy was buried alive while he was trying to dig a TUNNEL connecting two holes at a different beach in North Carolina. And according to the CDC, over 500 people have died in similar accidents since 1999.
If you think jumping on a trampoline while DRUNK sounds like a terrible idea, you're right. There's a new YouTube video of some guy trying it and he ends up bouncing into a bush while his friends just laugh at him. Skip to 3:14 to see the fall!
23-year-old Nigel Sykes of Wilmington, Delaware tried to rob a pizza place called Seasons Pizza back on November 30th of 2010. He busted through the back door, pointed a gun at the employees, and demanded money. But the employees managed to tackle him, knock his gun away, and hold him down until the cops got there. In the process, he got roughed up a little bit. He's currently in prison serving 15 years for the robbery. And now he's SUING the pizzeria because the employees were too rough with him. In his suit, he says, quote, "All of the Seasons Pizza employees participated in punching, kicking, and pouring hot soup over my body. I was unarmed and defenseless." For reference, he was unarmed because they knocked his gun away. He also says the police were too rough with him when they arrested him and used stun guns on him. He's seeking a total of $260,000 from the employees, the pizzeria, and the cops.

You can register a dot-com domain name for like two bucks, but it's not going to be very good. It'll be like six words long and impossible to remember. All the single words are taken and if you want one, it could cost you a FORTUNE. The website Business Insider put together a list of the top 10 domain names that have sold for the most money. You REALLY should've registered these back in 1994 or so.
Maybe this is just my donut-loving side talking, but I'm less offended by this crime and more offended by the grotesque waste of delicious baked goods. There's a neighborhood in Hillsboro, Oregon that's being TERRORIZED right now by someone vandalizing cars with PASTRIES. One time they smeared a maple bar on a car. Another time they left some donuts on a windshield. Then one time they moved away from pastries and dumped potato salad on a car. Overall, at least a DOZEN cars have been vandalized with food. The police think some damn fool kids are behind this and they've added extra patrols in the neighborhood to try to catch them. A police lieutenant named Mike Rouches told reporters, quote, "In my 25 years in police services, I have never investigated or seen a criminal mischief involving pastries."
Do you find yourself saying "um" or "uh" a lot? Well, good news: That just means you're a BETTER PERSON than someone who talks all slick and smooth. A new study out of the University of Texas found that people who use verbal ticks like "um," "uh," "like," and "you know" are actually more CARING and THOUGHTFUL than people who don't. The reason? You're using those words to pause and think, because you're constantly rephrasing what you're saying to make sure the person you're talking to understands what you're saying and isn't offended by it.
I don't know where this happened, but there's a YouTube video of two gymnasts trying to do a crazy stunt where they both flip around in the air right next to each other. But they get a little too close and knock heads. And the sound it makes is TERRIBLE. Then everyone else in the gym comes over to see if they're okay, except for one guy who seems like he couldn't care less.
31-year-old Andrew Graham of Leicester, England got out of prison last month after doing time for burglary. And the first thing he did once he got out was break into a hair salon to rob the place. He stole almost $10,000 worth of equipment plus a few iPads. But somehow, in the process, he managed to drop his PRISON RELEASE PAPERS. They had his name, all of his info, and his photo. So when the salon's owners got there the next day, they found their place trashed and the prison release papers from the guy who clearly trashed it. The cops arrested Andrew two days later. He just got sent back to prison for 12 more months.
