Kicking and Screaming all the Way to the TSA

airline-recline

A United Flight from Newark to Denver had to be diverted to Chicago for a time-out yesterday after two passengers got into tussle over a reclining seat. It all started when a man used the Knee Defender—a lock that jams up the reclining capabilities of the forward seat—to prevent the lady in front of him from reclining while he was typing away on his laptop. After the man refused a flight attendant’s request to remove the banned device, the furious woman in front took the matter into her own hands and tossed her cup of water all over the business-minded traveler. Emotions kept increasing, and the plane was forced to make a pit stop to hand the big babies over to the TSA, who promptly dismissed the case as “a customer service issue.” The real kicker here though? The grown-up children had been previously sitting in the airline’s “economy plus” section.

asteroid-impact

The potential date for the end of humanity, when Asteroid 1950 DA could possibly collide with the earth. Given that this is 867 866 years away, and the chance of strike is only .3 %, you shouldn’t really worry much about it unless you’re a vampire. In which case, sorry dude. You better hope the scientists working on a solution can sprinkle some sparkly dust around the asteroid to let your biggest enemy, the sun, push the doom rock off its trajectory.

Four heroin addicted elephants used for smuggling drugs across the border between China and Myanmar are clean after undergoing a year-long rehab program involving megadoses of methadone. By feeding the elephants opium-laced bananas, gangsters were able to control the large pachyderms, forcing them to do anything they wished in order to get “the next fix.”

Headbanging All the Way to the Hospital

motorhead-head-bangers

After attending a Motörhead concert with his son, a 50-year-old headbanger went to the doctors with complaints of continued headaches that kept getting more intense. Due to nonstop shaking, the doctors diagnosed him with brain bleed and proceeded to drill a hole in his head to drain the blood from his brain. Following the procedure, the headaches went away and when the doctor was asked to comment on the case he simply stated: “I think if (our patient) had (gone) to a classical concert, this would not have happened” and concluded that the diagnoses “serves as evidence in support of Motörhead’s reputation as one of the most hardcore rock’n’roll acts on earth, if nothing else because of their contagious speed drive and the hazardous potential for headbanging fans to suffer brain injury.” Oh, that Lemmy.
