Ryan Kitching’s mom had been nagging him to clean his room, as moms tend to do. When the 19-year-old from Midlothian, Scotland finally relented and attacked the mess, he found 12 old lottery tickets.
Figuring they must all be losers, he thought about throwing the tickets out with the rest of the junk. But then he had a “strange feeling” that he should check the numbers, and when he did, he was nearly $85,000 richer.
Would you want to ride a roller coaster whose sheer force has been ripping the limbs off of crash test dummies? Or one that has been described by a fighter pilot who was given a preview as “gut-wrenching”? Visitors to Thorpe Park in England will have to make that decision in a couple weeks when The Swarm roller coaster opens to the public.
It’s happened to everyone — you text your husband or wife, “I love you with every fiber of my being,” but your phone actually sends, “I love you with every fiber of malaysia.” Most of the time it’s funny, but one person experienced the worst case of autocorrect ever. So bad, in fact, that it prompted a school-wide lockdown.
Because she is really famous, Gwyneth Paltrow is able to do things like pose for pictures with comedy legends Steve Martin and Martin Short at the Academy Awards.
But don’t think Paltrow doesn’t appreciate this privileged perch. The 39-year-old actress tweeted the photo above from the 2012 Oscars for all of her Twitter followers to see with the message, “I love my life.”
Munchkin-voiced actress Kristin Chenoweth has starred on popular TV shows like ‘Pushing Daisies’ and ‘The West Wing.’ But after this you’re only going to think of her as the loopy lady with dead people’s eyelashes.
If you happen to be a newscaster who isn’t so sure of the material you’re supposed to read, one way of limiting mistakes is concentrating very hard on the Teleprompter. Kara Manelli of WUFT in Gainesville, Florida displays this technique to a T as she finishes a story about a student housing lottery. She’s concentrating so hard, she doesn’t notice the woman behind her awkwardly trying to hide from the camera.
When the New York Yankees shipped A.J. Burnett to Pittsburgh last week they actually paid the Pirates $18 million of the $31 million left on his contract so they would agree to take the underachieving pitcher off of their hands...
When we heard about ‘The Simpsons’ Ultimate Fan Marathon Challenge, in which ‘Simpsons’ fanatics would compete to see who could watch all 500 episodes of Springfield’s finest in a row, we said it couldn’t be done. Eighty-six hours and 37 minutes of continuous TV watching without any sleep just seemed too much for any human to endure, even though ‘Simpsons’ fans are made of strong stuff (and also beer and doughnuts).
Japan has some crazy shows, but their Guinness World Records TV series is somehow the craziest. You think we’re kidding, but in one episode a man named Tomoharu Shoji sets a world record by crushing 43 nuts in one minute… Oh, yeah, and he did it just by using his butt.
