WWII Hero Returns For The First Time To The Country He Fought For, And Dies

(1) Comments | Posted May 27, 2016 | 5:29 AM

An American World War II veteran visited the country that he helped save for the first time in 71 years -- and died there.

Melvin Rector of Barefoot Bay, Florida, this month returned to England, where he was based as a gunner and radio operator on B-17 Flying Fortress Bombers in 1945, The Washington Post reported Thursday. He flew eight combat missions over Germany from the Royal Air Force station in Norfolk, England. Rector came under heavy fire on half of them.

He toured west London's Battle of Britain Bunker, a command center for flight operations, on the day of his arrival May 6. Rector said he felt dizzy as he climbed out of it, the Post reported. He died on the spot. He was 94.

"He couldn’t have asked for a better way to go,” his daughter Sandy Vavruich told Florida Today. “It was quick and painless. He had just gotten to see two planes, and he passed away between them.”

British and American military got wind of Rector's passing and put together a proper sendoff for a man of valor.

"There was no way we were going to just give him a very simple service," funeral director Neil Sherry told ITV. "I wanted it to be as special as possible."

The veteran's remains were to be sent home and a service for the father of six is scheduled for June 9 in Barefoot Bay.

Many outlets reported that Rector flew in the famous Memphis Belle, but the Post stressed in a correction that it was a different...

Guy Breaks Hugging World Record In A Grab At Glory

(0) Comments | Posted May 26, 2016 | 1:22 PM

Who knew that one of the attributes of a champion could be affection?

Krishna Kumar recently broke the Guinness World Record for most hugs in a minute, Guinness noted in its YouTube description.

HuffPost India wrote that while he attempted to hug 83 people, he officially recorded 79 because a few of his embraces were more "headlocks than hugs" to the record committee.

He made his attempt at a school in Pradesh, India, in March, according to the record website, but the video was just posted by Guinness on Tuesday.

The previous hug mark was 77, but now you can kiss that record goodbye.

You deserve a congratulatory hug, dude.

And Now It's Time To Watch Mold Grow To The 'Game Of Thrones' Theme

(0) Comments | Posted May 25, 2016 | 11:43 AM

Maybe Tyrion Lannister didn't outright declare, "There's a fungus among us!" when he was on trial for King Joffrey's murder. But that seemed to be his point. Now, there seems to be no doubt about it.

A kooky video titled "Game of Molds" reimagines the show's iconic intro with time-lapse footage of mold.

We know, it sounds weird. But trust us, it'll grow on you, just like that man who lives in a tree.

Teen's Water Bottle Flip Brings Down The House -- And The Internet

(1) Comments | Posted May 25, 2016 | 9:56 AM

What do you do for an encore, kid?

Michael Senatore nailed a water bottle flip during Tuesday's talent show at Ardrey Kell High School in Charlotte, North Carolina, Facebook Newswire reported.

The audience lost its freakin' mind but that's not all. Senatore's Facebook-posted stunt, while fun but not exactly of the highest order, went viral when he tweeted the clip and it was posted on YouTube and Reddit.

Senatore acknowledged his sudden Internet fame.

The video shows him strutting on stage and finally flipping the bottle on to a portable platform. The bottle lands upright (with or without extra help), prompting a huge ovation.

"Flipped a water bottle for my senior talent show today. I'd say it went well," he wrote on Facebook.

Ya, Michael, we'd say so.

Python Bites Penis Of Man On Toilet And Doesn't Let Go

(0) Comments | Posted May 25, 2016 | 5:59 AM

A Thai man's routine visit to the bathroom turned into a terrifying fight with a giant snake.

Atthaporn Boonmakchuay was doing his business on a toilet in his home east of Bangkok when a python emerged through the bowl and bit his penis, outlets reported Wednesday.

The python wouldn't let go, so he screamed for his wife to get a rope, the Thai English-language news site Khaosod English noted. He managed to tie the snake's head to the bathroom door and extricate himself "before he passed out from loss of blood," the site wrote.

According to the Mirror, the man has been hospitalized in stable condition.

As news video shows, the massive python, alive, was taken from the home still stuck in the pipe and bathroom fixture. Workers eventually smashed it to free the python, which was expected to be released back into the wild, outlets...

Homer Simpson Hates Building IKEA Furniture, Just Like You

(0) Comments | Posted May 24, 2016 | 1:09 PM

For anyone who's ever tried to assemble IKEA furniture, or something like it, here's an opportunity to truly relate to Homer Simpson.

The couch gag for "The Simpsons" season finale Sunday pitted the cartoon pop against a deconstructed couch sent in boxes.

With beer, doughnuts and his own oafishness to get in the way, Homer is pretty much screwed.

 This hits closer to home than we'd like to admit.

Sportscaster Gets Real Awkward In Lecturing News Anchor

(0) Comments | Posted May 24, 2016 | 6:07 AM

That got awkward fast. A San Francisco sportscaster appears to take umbrage with a colleague accidentally scooping him on a story in footage that's going viral.

As hard as KRON 4's Gary Radnich tried to humor up the exchange, the more it seemed he was genuinely ticked, SFGate reported Monday.

Before Radnich gave the sports segment during a newscast last week, anchor Catherine Heenan reported that LeBron James would star in a "Space Jam" movie reboot, SFGate wrote.

Radnich repeated the news item in his portion, the video footage shows. Heenan apologized for reading the tidbit earlier. Then Radnich sarcastically asked her for the update on Stephen Curry's knee.

"How long have we been friends? Twenty-three years?" Radnich said to Heenan, noting that he doesn't report stories that are typically hers. "I stay in my lane."

It gets more uncomfortable from there, but Radnich insisted on Twitter that he was "playing." Hmm. That "playing" sure sucked up a lot of air time.

But Heenan's tweet indicates that perhaps Radnich's attempt at being funny may have missed the mark. Note the word "trying."

Judge for yourself above.

When You Throw Dry Ice Into A Pool, Something Eerie Happens

The internet loves dry ice dumped into swimming pools, so who are we to deny readers more?

In a video viewed by the millions, watch Crazy Russian Hacker drop 30 pounds of frozen carbon dioxide into a pool and enjoy.

Dig how the frozen carbon dioxide interacts with the water to create a crazy fog right out of a horror movie.

"Whoa, look at that!" CRH says.

We're equally fascinated with the mountain digs where CRH conducted his experiment, but maybe that's just us.
