If your reason to rob a store is that their beers are overpriced by 37-and-a-half cents each, maybe you were just looking for ANY reason. 34-year-old Herbert Lindsey of Boynton Beach, Florida went to a convenience store on Tuesday night and bought two cans of Sam Adams. The clerk rang them up and told him it was $3.75 total. And Herbert was OUTRAGED. He thought the beers should only be $3, not $3.75. And he was so angry that he pulled a GUN on the clerk and stole a bunch of money from the register. The cops tracked Herbert down later that night. He said he'd just taken money out of the register to get back what he overpaid on the beers. He's still locked up on an armed robbery charge.
It's amazing ANYONE'S able to relax and have a normal conversation on a first date, considering how much JUDGING is going on and how even one little mistake can ruin things. A new survey asked people the rudest things someone can do on a first date that would make them not want a second date.
We'd all like to think that writing a brilliant online dating profile will make people line up around the block. But it won't. OkCupid just analyzed data from when their site first started, when they would make people rate other users on their looks and their personalities. And they found the personality rating was entirely based on looks. The graph of the ratings is basically a straight line. People who got a one out of five in looks usually also got a one out of five in personality. People who got a five out of five in looks also got five out of five in personality. They also analyzed how important what you write in your profile is by running an experiment where sometimes they just displayed a profile's photos with no text and sometimes displayed both the photos and the text. They found that people were only rated about 10% more desirable when the text was available. In other words, your photos are basically EVERYTHING in online dating which, deep down, you already kinda knew.
A couple on vacation in Mexico were recording themselves with a GoPro camera earlier this month. And while they were posing for the shot, a bolt of lightning hit a tree RIGHT behind them.
I don't know all the nuances that go into being GOOD at arson, but I can definitely identify what makes a person BAD at arson. And 31-year-old Arthur Avery of South Daytona, Florida is bad at arson. Arthur went to an apartment complex on Saturday morning and started banging on doors, looking for a guy named Ted. A woman told him no one named Ted lived there. So Arthur started splashing gasoline on the building to set it on fire. But, in the process he accidentally set HIMSELF on fire. When Arthur bent down to light up the building, he caught himself on fire. He stopped, dropped, and rolled and in the process, his wallet fell out. Some friend took him to the hospital to be treated for his burns. The cops took his driver's license out of his wallet, showed it to witnesses, they identified him as the guy trying to burn down the building, and the cops arrested him. He did a little damage to the building but firefighters were able to put it out quickly.

A ZOMBIE WALK near Comic-Con in San Diego got a little TOO real on Saturday night, when participants dressed as zombies allegedly attacked a car, causing the driver to hit and injure a 64-year-old woman. A man and his children were stopped at an intersection, waiting for the zombies to walk by. But the scene was freaking out his kids, so he started inching forward, hoping to get through. Police say the zombies then surrounded his car and started beating on it and one even jumped on the hood and broke the windshield. So the driver hit the gas, and that's when he hit the woman. She suffered non-life-threatening injuries, including a possible broken arm. The man kept driving, with some zombies chasing him, until he found a cop on the street, who diffused the situation. No arrests were made, but police are still investigating. Not that it makes any difference, but everyone in the car was deaf. Several videos of this chaos have hit the web, and while none give a totally clear picture of the events, it really doesn't seem like the "zombies" were being too aggressive. This might just have been a case of the driver overreacting.
If you want to get huge fake clown boobs, more power to you. Especially if you can come up with a great excuse for why you didn't just want them, you NEEDED them. 19-year-old Tasmin Wade of Suffolk, England got her breasts enlarged from a double-A cup to a G-CUP. And she says that her enormous fake breasts have made her into a BETTER MOTHER. Tasmin has a two-year-old son named Finley. And she says that ever since she got her breasts, it's made his life better. Quote, "I was unable to go swimming with Finley as I felt so self-conscious. Finley had never been swimming. I feel comfortable to take him abroad now too as I won't mind wearing skimpy clothes and bikinis." She spent $8,500 on her breasts and says it was the best investment in her child she could make. Quote, "Finley has always been my number one priority, but now I don't let anything hold me back from being the best mom I can be."
