A Tennessee couple are in trouble for letting a child they were babysitting drive a car, and she crashed into a house..
Witnesses reported seeing a car driving out of control, smashing through a fence, over a swing set, and into the side of a house.
Neighbors say they then saw the couple grab several beer cans out of the car, then flee the scene on foot.
The man told police he was straddling the center console of the vehicle, operating the pedals and steering wheel, while the 11-year-old girl assisted from the driver's seat
The couple was arrested.
The mother of a Georgia teen labeled “freak” in a high-school yearbook photo caption wants the school held accountable for bullying—and the yearbooks destroyed and reprinted.
A freshman trumpet player has a school band photo in the yearbook with his name appearing as “Dylan Worthen-Freak.”
More than 900 copies of the yearbook have been printed.
The student says “I’m just going to act like it never happened. If anyone says something to me, I’m going to ignore it.”
A man flew a drone just a “few feet away” from a Seattle family’s home and defended his right to do it because he was flying it in the air and wasn’t trespassing.
He also claimed it was for research.
The guy got caught because the loud noise the drone made caught the attention of a woman. She saw the man on the sidewalk controlling the drone near a third-story window. Her husband approached the man, who was standing on the sidewalk, and told him stop being creepy, but the guy explained that he was doing “research” and the camera was transmitting the images to his glasses. They called the police, but the guy left.
As it turns out, the guy may have not been doing anything illegal. A 1946 Supreme Court ruling declared that the “air is a public highway.” No word on if that law goes for people flying drones.
Police are looking into it.
On her upbringing:
"We were never a huggy family. Or a ‘let’s talk it out’ family. Technically I have siblings, but they are quite a bit older than me — I was the accident — so I have the only-child syndrome going on. I’m a little more selfish, a little more independent, a little closed. I do wish I were softer. I wish I were able to form relationships better. But hey, I mean... I’m not a sociopath."
On keeping her parents away from the spotlight :
"My parents are really great people who want nothing to do with any of this. I'm the black sheep of the family. The black-crystal sheep. Swarovski."
On her hard-to-reach persona:
"When people say, 'She's hard to talk to.' This guy I know said, 'You know what I love about you? I can sit next to you and I don't have to talk.' And I'm like, 'Thank you?'"
On her hidden talent:
"I can eat any man under the table."
On having kids:
“I don’t feel old enough to have kids. I know I am mature. But being responsible for another human?”
It’s called the Scentee. It’s a device that can be attached to smartphones and used to send smells to friends.
Scentee is plugged into the phone using the phone's connector. To send a smell the sender clicks the Puff button on the screen. The recipient's Scentee lights up and a 'puff' of scent is released from a hole on the right-hand side of the connected device.
NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg plans to take something new to space: the art of quilting.
When she launches into space on May 28th, she'll take four pieces of fabric, and some needles and thread.
Safety issues mean she can't take a sewing machine, an iron, paints, a rotary cutter or other common tools for quilters.
To do quilting in zero gravity, she'll have to brace herself somewhere so she and her fabrics don't float around, find some good light, and keep her thread and thread clippings under control so they don't float into someone's face and eyes.
Stitching will be a challenge too, since she, the fabric, and the thread will want to float free, not sit steady and still.
*** Bringing the quilt back to Earth might also be a problem, since Nyberg has limited space in the capsule she'll be traveling in next November. But she hopes to bring at least some of her work back with her.
Oscar Mayer is introducing a bacon hot dog.
They actually came out with five new dogs, but only one of them has bacon cooked right into it.
The “Bacon Dogs” are hitting the shelves this week just in time for Memorial Day.
The clock in at 130 calories and have 11 grams of fat, 35 milligrams of cholesterol, and 270 milligrams of sodium each. But who cares? It’s bacon!
FYI- Two Bacon Dogs are better for you than a McDonald’s Big Mac.
Their other new dogs include a gluten free chicken-breast hot dog, bigger versions of Smokies smoked sausages, lite hot dogs, and fat-free dogs.
A Massachusetts woman ordered a steak-and-cheese sub at a fast food joint and received "too many pickles".
So, she punched an employee and shoved two jars of pickles at her.
The 49-year-old walked into the store and ordered the sub, but immediately complained the employee was "putting too much s***" on the sandwich. She also shouted "other comments regarding the preparation of the steak and cheese."
The woman then demanded a refund, but when she was told she couldn't get one, she punched the female employee in the face, pushed large jars of pickles on her and knocked her to the ground.
The jars shattered and the woman ran off without the sandwich, but the employee managed to catch up with her and held her until police showed up.
