A Stray Pit Bull Who Was Going to be Put Down Just Became a Police Dog

A few months ago, a stray pit bull wound up at an animal shelter in Marysville, Ohio.  The staff named him Leonard and they wanted to find him a home, but he was too aggressive.  So he was scheduled to be PUT DOWN.   But then, the director of the center realized Leonard wasn’t just an out-of-control aggressive pit bull, he just had a lot of energy that needed to be channeled.  So he contacted a police dog training center to see if they’d give him a shot.   They took in Leonard and they found they were quickly able

The Top Five Social Networks Ranked by How Likely They Are to Make You Feel Worse

If you just checked out of social media for good, it would almost definitely make your life better.  But, none of us will do it.  We’re social media masochists, all of us.  A new study looked at the effect that the biggest social networks had on us and it found that it’s pretty damn negative.   Instagram makes people feel the WORST.  Why?  Everyone shares photos that make it look like they’re having an amazing time while you’re not, plus the filters make them look more attractive than they are, which makes you insecure.   Snapchat makes us feel the

A Woman Who Caused an Accident by Dressing as a T-Rex to Scare Horses Has Turned Herself In

It’s hard to think of a weirder reason to wind up with a criminal record than this.  For some reason, a 26-year-old woman named Nicole Wells from West Ashley, South Carolina decided to dress up as a Tyrannosaurus rex last week.  Then she walked onto the street to try to SCARE some horses that pull carriages through Charleston, South Carolina.   And it worked.  The two horses freaked out and one of the carriage drivers was thrown onto the ground.  He wound up with a broken foot.   Nicole turned herself in to the cops on Friday.  She was cited

Five Survival Myths That Could Get You Killed

We saw a list online of a bunch of survival myths you see in movies all the time.  But they don’t actually work.  And they could KILL YOU if you actually tried them in real life.   Here are six of them:   1.  “You can suck the venom out of a snakebite.”  It doesn’t work and just gets bacteria into the wound.  Instead, keep the bite below heart level, and get to a hospital.  Just don’t panic, because you want to keep your heart rate low.   2.  “Always play dead if you’re attacked by a bear.”  If it’s

Teachers Give a Student With ADHD an Award For “Most Likely to Not Pay Attention”

It’s almost like these teachers WANTED to get fired.  Two teachers at Memorial Middle School in Conyers, Georgia gave out some end-of-the-year AWARDS at an assembly last week.  One of the awards was “Most Likely to Not Pay Attention.”   And, they gave it to a 14-year-old girl with ADHD.  When she took the trophy home and told her mom what happened, her mom flipped out.   The school wound up apologizing and they said the two teachers who gave the award won’t be returning next year.  It’s not clear if they were fired or they were, um, strongly encouraged

A New Sandwich Uses a Giant Pickle as the Bun

Ever since people realized bread was evil they’ve been trying to find new substitutes for sandwiches, whether it was KFC using fried chicken as buns or Taco Bell, well, also using fried chicken as a taco shell.   Here’s the latest.  The Fresno Grizzlies minor league baseball team in California is selling a chicken sandwich at their ballpark that uses a GIANT PICKLE as a bun.   The pickle is cut in half, just like a big hoagie roll, and a bunch of Nashville hot chicken is dumped inside.  There’s no word on whether it’s any good.   (Here’s a

A Woman Finds Out Her Hotel Manager Fiancé Is Cheating, Through TripAdvisor Reviews

This might be the first time ever someone’s been busted for cheating because of a travel review.  A 41-year-old woman named Melanie Sheard from Doncaster, England went on a vacation to Turkey back in May of 2014 and she met a 32-year-old hotel manager named Pablo.   They hit it off, started seeing each other, and she kept going back to Turkey to see him, and eventually he proposed to her.  But since she had a lot of money and he didn’t, she paid for her own engagement ring.  She didn’t care, though, because they were in love.   Then,

Jeans That Convert to Jean Shorts Are Now on Sale, For $425

The stupid jeans trend just keeps moving.  In the past month we’ve seen companies selling see-through jeans and ones that are pre-stained in fake mud.  And now, this.   A brand called Y/Project just started selling women’s jeans that have detachable legs, so you can quickly convert them to jean shorts.  Only the legs don’t QUITE line up, so even when you wear them as jeans there are little uncovered gaps around your thighs.   And naturally, they cost $425.   (Here are a few photos.)     (NY Mag)

Two months ago, a woman named Christine Marr and her family in South Haven, Michigan lost their house in a fire.  They were all okay, and firefighters saved their pet dog, but their pet cat didn’t make it out.   Well, on Sunday, they made their first trip back to their old house to check out the rubble.  They brought their dog, and she started acting strange and digging and scratching at a spot in the floor.  And when the family checked out that spot, they could hear a faint MEOWING sound coming from under it.   So they pulled
