There's a woman in Winchester, England who lives alone in a five-bedroom house. We're not sure how old she is, but she has an adult son. Anyway, she hadn't even opened the door to one of the spare bedrooms for three months, until her son came to visit last weekend. And when he went in, he discovered that the entire upper half of the twin-sized bed was covered by a huge WASPS' NEST. There's a photo of it online. And when we say huge, I mean the nest was four feet wide, went from one side of the bed to the other, and covered most of the pillow. According to the exterminator, there were FIVE THOUSAND wasps living in it. And they were also INSIDE the mattress. He says it was so impressive, he actually felt BAD about killing them all. But as soon as he started messing with the nest, THOUSANDS of wasps started swarming him. So obviously it was dangerous, and they didn't have a choice.
There's a small town in southeast Brazil called Noiva do Cordeiro that's incredibly unique. The entire population is WOMEN. About 600 women live there, and most of them are under 35. It was founded by a woman in 1891 after the Catholic Church excommunicated her for leaving her husband. Then she took in OTHER women who were kicked out of their towns, like prostitutes. That's how the tradition started anyway. These days, men are basically BANNED, there are a few husbands, but they're only allowed in town on weekends. And sons are sent away at 18. So the women run everything and one woman there says, quote, "it's prettier, more organized, and far more harmonious than if men were in charge." There's only one problem. A lot of the women are single and lonely so they're considering opening up the town to men for the first time ever. A 23-year-old woman says, quote, "The only men we single girls meet are either married or related to us, everyone is a cousin. We all dream of falling in love and getting married, but we like living here and don't want to have to leave."
We've hit the point where a standard Ice Bucket Challenge isn't cool enough anymore, people feel like they have to do something new and different. A 51-year-old guy in Catalonia, Spain was doing the Ice Bucket Challenge this week, and he and his friends wanted to take it to a whole new level. One of his friends flies those firefighting planes that dump water on massive fires so they decided to use the PLANE to drop more ice and water on the guy than anyone else who's done the challenge, specifically 400 GALLONS. Unfortunately, no one realized that having 400 gallons of ice and water dumped on you from the sky is going to HURT. So when his friend dumped the load, the guy was seriously injured. He was rushed to the hospital, and he's still in critical but stable condition. There's no specific report on his injuries just that none of them are internal.
Here's the GROSSEST Ice Bucket Challenge so far. A woman in England wanted to do something unique, and asked her family to use a tanker truck on their farm to spray her down with water. But instead, they pranked her by filling the tank with LIQUID MANURE.
In theory, when you ask your girlfriend's dad for permission to marry her, it's supposed to be a respectful formality. The only way you'll hear "no" is if one of you is a bad person. Which seems to be what happened here. 40-year-old James Kane of Ocala, Florida was ready to propose to his girlfriend, so on Monday, he asked her 72-year-old father for permission to marry her. But the dad said NO. And based on the way James responded, we can see why the dad didn't want James marrying his daughter, because James started throwing PUNCHES. The dad wound up with cuts and bruises on his face. James was arrested and charged with felony domestic battery on a person over 65. There's no word on whether James and his girlfriend are still together, or if he went through with his proposal even without permission.

It's time for a late August tradition, a list about today's college freshmen that makes you realize you're so old, you might as well wither up and die. Beloit College in Wisconsin just released their annual "Mindset List" where they list a bunch of things about college freshmen that'll make you feel ancient. This year's freshmen were born in 1996, so here are some highlights about their mindset...
There's a stereotype that French people smell bad and I'm not saying it's true or false. But I WILL say that if it IS true, and you out-stink HUNDREDS of other French people simultaneously then bravo. A 27-year-old French guy was on an American Airlines flight on Sunday from Paris to Dallas, Texas. It was going to be his first trip to America, and he said he'd always dreamed of visiting here. BUT he smelled really bad. It was so bad, that before the plane took off, other passengers and the crew started complaining and he got kicked off the plane. American Airlines DID have the right to kick him off. In their terms and conditions for passengers, it says they can refuse to take a passenger who, quote, "has an offensive odor not caused by a disability or illness." But the guy has filed a complaint against American Airlines for discrimination anyway. He thinks that the smell thing was just an excuse not to let him fly for some reason because he KNOWS he smelled great before the flight, he says, quote, "I covered myself with Dior perfume at the duty free shop."
Let's call this the 2014 evolution of that old "Stay in School" ad campaign. These days, we want less talk and more FIREPOWER, baby. 55-year-old Viktor Barkov of Elmwood Park, Illinois has a 22-year-old son who's supposed to be heading back to college. I'm not sure WHICH college, but over the weekend, Viktor's son announced he was dropping out. And Viktor responded by pulling out his GUN, putting it up to his son's HEAD, and telling him, quote, "If you don't go back to school I'm going to put a hole through your head." The police came, and Viktor was arrested for aggravated assault and use of a deadly weapon. There's no word if his son decided to go back to school after all.
This video is exactly why every public pool has "no running" signs. Watch a guy attempt to run and jump into a pool, but slip on the way and scrape half his body off on the side of it. Side note: this guy's friends are TOTAL jerks because you can hear them laughing before they even ask if he's' okay.
