A Leopard Is Terrorizing People Who Stumble Home Drunk in Northeast India

Here’s a travel advisory in case you have a trip scheduled to northeast India this week.  You probably don’t and that’s good!

Apparently, there’s a LEOPARD on the prowl and terrorizing people there.  The leopard has already attacked THIRTEEN people as they were walking home from bars and restaurants.

Forest rangers say it’s clear he’s got a taste for humans and people who’ve had too much to drink and are stumbling are easier targets.

They believe he used to eat DOGS . . . but there are fewer wild dogs around now, so the leopard has transitioned to humans.

They’ve gone out hunting for him three times but haven’t been able to catch him.


too smartA Drug Dealer Tells a Customer He’s “Too Smart” to Get Caught . . . and the Customer Is an Undercover Cop

There’s nothing as perfect as a Stupid Criminal who THINKS he’s a genius criminal . . . and that’s EXACTLY what we’ve got here.

45-year-old Adalberto Ramiro-diaz of Port St. Lucie, Florida has been running a pretty massive drug dealing operation out of his house.

At one point recently, a customer was over at his house looking at his massive stash of drugs and guns, and asked him how he’d never been caught.  And Adalberto told him he was TOO SMART to get caught.

But the customer he told that to was . . . an undercover cop.

Stupid Criminals!!!!

The cops arrested him last week on a ton of drug and weapons charges.  They also found a fake FBI badge in his house during their search.


A Vet Performed a Life-Saving Operation on a Goldfish

We do a LOT for our pets.  But do FISH count?

Last week, a couple in Melbourne, Australia noticed their pet goldfish George was having trouble breathing.

Now, George is ten years old.  So you’d THINK their first instinct would be to make sure the TOILET was working properly . . . because that’s probably where most people would send him.

Instead, they took him to the VET.  He saw that George had a massive TUMOR on one of his gills.  And I mean it was about the size of a grape.  For a three-ounce goldfish, that’s pretty big.

And he told George’s owners that it would be risky . . . but for $200, he could try to perform a potentially life-saving operation and REMOVE the tumor.  And they went for it.

We’re happy to report that the 45-minute surgery was a complete success.

George is now back home in his tank recovering.

bank robber-tMRA Bank Robber Is Easily Identified . . . by the Money Falling Out of His Pants

25-year-old Shawn Lee Canfield of Merced, California has some pretty bad bank robbing skills.

Shawn went into a Chase bank at a grocery store and ROBBED it on Saturday.  The teller gave him $2,748 . . . and that’s when Shawn realized he forgot to bring a BAG to the robbery.

So he improvised and shoved the money down his pants just outside the bank.  But that took him a little while . . . and by the time he was done, the cops got there.

As the cops pulled up, money started falling out of Shawn’s pant leg.  Eventually all $2,748 was on the ground . . . and he was arrested for robbery and burglary.

Stupid Criminals!!!

He told the cops he’d stolen the money so he could visit his mother in Colorado.


Burglar Offers To Mow Lawn If Homeowners Let Him Go

25-year old Bryan Remley allegedly broke into the home of Joseph Cihak in St. Petersburg, Florida….and Joseph caught Bryan red-handed.

But instead of running away, Bryan tried to cut a deal with the homeowner saying he would mow Joseph’s lawn for FREE if they just let him go.

Instead, the man and his wife called 9-11 and held Bryan at gunpoint until police arrived.

Bryan was arrested and charged with armed residential burglary and violation of probation.

The Golden Arches at a McDonald’s in Oklahoma Fell and Trapped Two People in the Drive-Thru

The giant golden arches sign outside a McDonald’s in Weatherford, Oklahoma FELL on Wednesday . . . and landed on two cars in the drive-thru.

The photo is crazy, and it’s amazing no one was killed, because both cars were partially CRUSHED.  Firefighters say if there had been passengers in the cars, things might’ve been a lot worse.

The drivers in both cars were trapped for about 15 minutes until the fire department could rescue them, and were both taken to the hospital.  Luckily neither had any major injuries.

Oh, and no one’s sure yet what made the sign fall.

Click here to see a photo of the arches on the cars.


A Great Dane Ate 43-and-a-Half Socks

The owners of a three-year-old Great Dane in Portland, Oregon rushed their dog to an emergency animal hospital recently, because he was retching and throwing up all day.

So a vet did exploratory surgery . . . and removed 43-and-a-half SOCKS from his stomach.

It’s not clear if he ate them all in one sitting, or over the course of a few days.  It’s also not clear if they were clean or dirty.  But there’s a photo of them all lined up after the surgery, and they were certainly dirty at THAT point.

The 43-and-a-half socks had to get tossed.  No word on whether or not the other half-sock ever turned up.

Check out the X-ray and the photo by clicking here.


A Guy Did CPR and Saved a Baby’s Life . . . After a Smartphone App Told Him Someone Nearby Needed Help

There’s an app for your phone called PulsePoint.  And if you’ve been trained to do CPR, it alerts you when there’s an emergency nearby.

A mechanic in Spokane, Washington named Jeff Olson was at work recently when he got an alert that someone at a store two blocks away had called 911.  Jeff rushed over to see if he could help.

When he got there, someone outside told him that a one-month-old baby had turned BLUE, and wasn’t breathing.  So he ran inside, administered CPR, and was able to keep the baby alive until an ambulance got there.  The baby’s name is Nolan, and he’s recovering now, and doing okay.

Here’s a Freaky Quick Freak File

The iPhone 6 doesn’t come out for another two weeks.  But four people have already been spotted camping out in front of an Apple store in New York.


Big Foot Spotted In Mississippi!

There’s new evidence that BIGFOOT is real.  But, he might be smaller than we thought.

Vicksburg, Mississippi, resident PEYTON LASSITER claims he found a footprint and some “mysterious gray hair” near a local playground.

The footprint is only nine-inches long and six-inches wide at the toes. Another man named DAVID CHILDERS says he saw a six-foot-tall “creature” with “grayish-brown” hair at the same playground last winter.

Experts are very interested in the footprints because they suggest fingerprint-like impressions on the skin of the foot. Apparently, only humans and primates are capable of leaving behind such a print.


A Dog Fell Down a 1,000-Foot Cliff, But Survived Eight Days Until a Stranger Found Him

On Sunday, a crew for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution was running a training exercise off the coast of England.

One of the crew spotted a DOG stuck 30 feet above the water near the bottom of a huge cliff.  So they climbed up and rescued it.

They just couldn’t figure out HOW it got there . . . until they posted a photo of it on Facebook.

It turned out to be a nine-year-old springer spaniel named Sprig.  Mark and Susie Sanders lost him while they were hiking in the area, and had been looking for him the whole time.

Somehow he tumbled a THOUSAND FEET down, but he didn’t have a scratch on him.

Then he survived EIGHT DAYS on the side of the cliff by drinking water that dripped down the rocks. Check out photos from the rescue by clicking here.


A Guy Is in Court For Skipping Anger Management . . . and Attacks His Lawyer

34-year-old Kelly John Lange of Sioux Falls, South Dakota was convicted of assault earlier this year, and part of his sentence was going to anger management classes.  However, he’s been skipping them.

Kelly was in court on Tuesday about skipping the anger management classes.  He can’t afford a lawyer, so he had a public defender representing him.

Well, something she did made him angry . . . and since we all know he has no idea how to manage his anger, he ATTACKED her.

She had minor injuries but didn’t need any medical assistance.

He was arrested for assault, and since it’s his third assault in less than five years, this time it’s a felony.

He’s being held in jail without bond.

A Denny’s in New York Is Selling a $300 Grand Slam Breakfast

The very first Denny’s in Manhattan opened over the weekend, and it’s got a $300 Grand Slam breakfast.  Actually it’s called the Grand Cru Slam.

You get two standard Grand Slam breakfasts of eggs, pancakes, sausage, and bacon . . . but it also comes with a bottle of 2004 Dom Perignon Premier Cru champagne.

Denny’s says that’s actually a BARGAIN . . . most restaurants in New York City sell that same bottle for at least $400.  Plus, you know, it doesn’t come with pancakes and sausage and stuff.

Also, the inside does NOT look like a typical Denny’s . . . it looks more like a real restaurant.

Click here for a photo of the breakfast, and a few shots of the inside of the restaurant.


A Woman Texting and Driving Crashes . . . and Impales Her Butt on the Guardrail

It’s clear that no matter how many stories we hear about the dangers of texting and driving, we’re not going to stop.  But, Christina Jahnz of Elizabeth, Colorado dropped her daughter off at school last Wednesday and was running late to a meeting, so she tried to text that she was running late.

While she was texting, she crashed into a guardrail.  Somehow, that guardrail plowed through the front of her car, went through her thigh, and impaled her derriere.

The paramedics had to saw off the guardrail and take her to the hospital with it still stuck inside of her.

She had emergency surgery and amazingly, she survived!

(Click here to see some pictures including one of Elizabeth at the hospital, where you can see the pole and her legs . . . but it’s not graphic.)


A California Park Ranger Was Busted Sleeping in His Patrol Car With an Open Beer Between His Legs

If a park ranger is drinking on the job, who’s going to save hikers who get trapped under rocks and more importantly, who’s going to protect America’s pic-a-nic baskets?

Tyson Young is a California state park ranger.  He was on duty back on August 15th at Humboldt Redwoods State Park in northern California . . . but his head clearly wasn’t in the game.

That’s because a hiker walked past Tyson’s patrol car and saw him SLEEPING inside, with an open can of Keystone Light BEER between his legs.

So the guy took a photo and they posted it on Instagram.  He also called 911 but by the time the cops got there, Tyson had driven away.  So they caught up to him and pulled him over for drunk driving.

A spokeswoman from the California state parks department says Tyson has been placed on administrative leave while they investigate.

A Guy Is Seriously Injured in the Ice Bucket Challenge When His Friend Dumps 400 Gallons on Him . . . From a Plane

We’ve hit the point where a standard Ice Bucket Challenge isn’t cool enough anymore . . . people feel like they have to do something new and different.

A 51-year-old guy in Catalonia, Spain was doing the Ice Bucket Challenge this week, and he and his friends wanted to take it to a whole new level.

One of his friends flies those firefighting planes that dump water on massive fires . . . so they decided to use the PLANE to drop more ice and water on the guy than anyone else who’s done the challenge . . . 400 GALLONS.

Unfortunately, no one realized that having 400 gallons of ice and water dumped on you from the sky is going to HURT.  So when his friend dumped the load, the guy was seriously injured.

He was rushed to the hospital, and he’s in critical but stable condition.  There’s no specific report on his injuries . . . just that none of them are internal.

(His friends haven’t put up the video.)


marriage permission beatingA Guy Asked His Girlfriend’s Father For Permission to Marry Her . . . And When He Said No, the Guy Beat Him Up

40-year-old James Kane of Ocala, Florida was ready to propose to his girlfriend, so on Monday, he asked her 72-year-old father for permission to marry her.

But the dad said NO.

And based on the way James responded, we can see why the dad didn’t want James marrying his daughter . . . because James started throwing PUNCHES.  The dad wound up with cuts and bruises on his face.

James was arrested and charged with felony domestic battery on a person over 65.

Stupid Criminals!

There’s no word on whether James and his girlfriend are still together, or if he went through with his proposal even without permission.


Photo of the Day:  5,000 Wasps Moved Into a Woman’s Spare Bedroom

There’s a woman in Winchester, England who lives alone in a five-bedroom house.  Her son came to visit last weekend and went into one of the spare bedrooms where he discovered that the entire upper half of the twin-sized bed was covered by a huge WASPS’ NEST.

There’s a photo of it online.  And when we say huge, I mean the nest was four feet wide, went from one side of the bed to the other, and covered most of the pillow.

According to the exterminator, there were FIVE THOUSAND wasps living in it.  You’ll be pretty freaked out by the photo.

Matt Damon Did the Ice Bucket Challenge With Toilet Water 

Celebrity Ice Bucket Challenge videos are kind of OVER, but this one is worth looking at:  Because it’s MATT DAMON, and he used TOILET WATER.  And not from the tank.  He took it from the BOWL.

He did it because of the drought in California and, more importantly, because he co-founded, a charity dedicated to bringing clean drinking water to everyone around the world who needs it.

And he said, quote, “Keep in mind that the water in our toilets in the West is actually cleaner than the water that most people in the developing world have access to.”

Here’s the video….
