Things are about to get a whole lot hotter on Taiwanese public transportation, and not because of the summer heat.

Japanese adult film star Yui Hatano will appear on metro cards in Taiwan with "angel" and "devil" themes, reports BBC.

Here's an SFW version of the angel card.

And for those feeling a little naughty, the devil card.



Well, it's Friday. But you knew that already.

What you probably didn't know is that Getty Images has some absolutely beautiful stock videos of baboons interacting with stuff. It's marvelous, take a look for yourself!

A woman plotted to kill a homeless man for giving her grandkids lice.

It's like Florida has an unending bet with itself to commit the most novel, unexpected crimes.

That seems to be this complicated case, in which one extremely protective grandmother tried to contract an ex-in law to murder a homeless man who was dating her daughter.

Also lice was involved.



According to Gawker:

Pamela Vanorsdale, 50, allegedly called her daughter's ex-husband last Thursday and asked him to "pop" the homeless man, 22-year-old Dylan Loveless, in the head and chest. Loveless had apparently been abusive to Vanorsdale's grandchildren, choking and chasing them, but when the kids came home with lice, that was the last straw.

The ex told police about her alleged attempt to hire him as a hitman, but she claimed she was "only joking." Some of the things she was only joking about allegedly included: being able to provide the prospective hitman with a gun, wanting Loveless shot "in the head and chest," being able to clean and dispose of the gun, and wanting the body dumped in South Carolina. She also "joked" that she could lure Loveless out of his homeless camp with the promise of work.




Doesn't she know that medicative shampoos exist?

As well as the police?

If some homeless person is messing with your grandkids, the police are probably the people to call.

Game of thrones memes season 5 Fans concoct another Jon Snow theory.

Tons of spoilers, yo.

Did Jon Snow have a twin sister?

Welcome to the wonderful world of Game of Thrones fan theories where anything is possible, everyone is everyone's brother/sister/lover/murderer and no one ever dies.

The most recent theory to ride the bloody waves of season five's finale is based around the prevailing R+L=J theory, which basically holds that Jon Snow is the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. If you don't know about this, then watch the following helpful video:



Building off that theory and the presumed death of Jon Snow in the final scenes of season five, a new theory has sprung up, delicately explained by Mashable.

Here's where things get even more crazy. Some people are now combining an old theory – that Meera Reed, the girl currently with Bran, is actually Jon Snow's twin sister – with this other theory about Jon Snow's parentage; hence the R+L=J+M.

Despite the fact that Jon Snow looks a hell of a lot older than Meera in the TV series, this impressively in-depth Wiki of Ice and Fire lists the birth years of both characters as 283 AC – which would make them the same age. When you add in the fact that Lyanna Stark is also listed by the Wiki as dying in 283 AC (and Meera's supposed father Howland Reed was with Ned at the Tower of Joy on the day they went to find Lyanna), it seems like there's more than enough ground for a good old fan theory.



You know Meera, she's the gal with the bow and the sister of the mysterious Jojen. They weren't seen this past season and are probably still just hanging around with that old tree dude, who turned out to be the three-eyed crow.



If this theory is true, it basically means three things.

1. Jon Snow might actually be dead, despite mounting evidence to the contrary.

2. Meera's got a much bigger role to play than we thought.

3. Game of Thrones stole the plot of Star Wars and added lots of sex.



"My father has it, I have it, my sister has it, and they all did each other." β€” Jon Snow, maybe

Judge Joe Brown goes to jail in Tennessee.

How the tables have turned for Judge Joe Brown.

He turned himself in to the Tennessee penal system Aug. 27 for a 2014 contempt of court charge. He will serve five days for reported losing his temper in a court room.

And to think, he used to get paid for that.

Yahoo tells how the ex-judge found himself behind bars.

Brown, 68, was observing juvenile court proceedings at the Shelby County Criminal Court in Memphis, Tennessee last March when he was approached by a woman who asked him to take a look at her child support case. He told ABC News at the time that he felt obliged to help her and ended up going before a judge on her behalf.

"When I insisted that the woman's charges be dismissed, he started talking about, I'm not an attorney so-and-so," Brown explained. "I said, 'You know it's wrong. ... You're better than this.'"

Brown was found in contempt when he reportedly became verbally abusive to court workers and ignored Juvenile Court Magistrate Harold Horne's warning to calm down, according to local news reports.

Here's his mugshot:

Jerry seinfeld gets the cops called on him for starting a lemonade stand.

The one time Jerry Seinfeld tries to help someone, the cops get called.

In an attempt to raise some fun money for his wife's Baby Buggy family charity, Seinfeld, his son Julian and two of the youngster's friends set up an impromptu lemonade stand in East Hampton last week.

Not everyone in the Hamptons appreciated the philanthropic gesture according to the Huffington Post.

East Hampton Village Police received a complaint on Aug. 18 about illegally parked cars at the stand, The East Hampton Press reported. An officer arrived on the scene and told the comedian that lemonade stands were not permitted on village property, and that he'd have to shut it down. "No Lemonade For You," the newspaper's headline read, referencing the Soup Nazi' character's "No soup for you!" cry on Seinfeld's hugely popular sitcom.



Luckily, Seinfeld and his temporary employees were able to have a little fun with it and posted their reaction to the call on Instagram.



That's a shame.

Sacramento parents got pretty nervous about this suspicious van.

For some reason, parents in suburban Sacramento got suspicious when they started seeing this van around town.

The white van, with "Free Candy" hastily painted across it and foreboding hand prints dragged across the windowless back end, brought in many calls and cell phone pictures to local news channels.

And it was CBS Sacramento that finally cracked the case:

Lawrence Bellow, 12, snapped a photo on his cellphone of the suspicious van parked outside his home.

"It looked too fake to be true, but I didn't want to get a closer look for sure," he said. "I was kind of nervous about it; I didn't know what was going on so I just wanted to get evidence in case anything happened."

He had a gut feeling the white van with blacked out windows and no license plate could be trouble.

His mother first noticed it at Walmart yesterday, then came home to find it parked on her street.

"It had handprints in red and it almost looked likeβ€”I think it was supposed to look like blood honestly; it just looked like the handprints were dripping down," she said. "It just felt like they were trying to track kids and it just gave me a creepy feeling."

Other concerned neighbors snapped photos of the van driving around; one shows it alongside a school bus.



They made some calls and found out the truth β€” the van was headed to Burning Man.

Luckily, children knew never to trust damn hippies.

After many false starts, the Internet gets the safe story it needs.

The Internet has a varied relationship with stories about safes.

Two years ago, one Reddit post blew the lid off a secret fascination and the web has been a wash with 'what's in this box?' speculation. That post alone spawned a healthy subreddit that has almost 90,000 subscribers.

But unfortunately, most of them have led to disappointing reveals.

That is until sarm posted a series of pictures to Imgur about the safe they found while renovating their Phoenix home...



[W]e moved into our fixer-upper home two years ago and we're finally getting around to the kitchen renovation. ...During the demolition, we found this safe in the floor – the safe revealed itself when we tore down the kitchen island.

To my knowledge, our home has had 6 previous owners – A hunch the safe didn't belong to the last owners who seemed to like cats and smoking.



Apparently, when they moved in, they found a code to a safe in the back of a medicine cabinet, but never found a safe on which to use it. Very wisely, they saved the combination and the opportunity presented itself. That's crazy in itself.

But look at what they found:



It turned out to be $51,080, 50-year-old James E. Pepper bourbon and a very, very mysterious book.



The book is an even deeper rabbit hole, full of mysterious clues, postcard riddles and a bingo card with a possible combination on it.

A Guide for the Perplexed by E.F. Schumacher. Published in 1977.

Page 1 – A photo of a really sexy Gregory Peck looking dude.

I'm not a treasure hunter but pages 1, 7, 11, and 14 contain, what appear to be, a series of clues.

...On the back of the photo is a note which reads,

Alan,
I have a book you must read. I've underlined a few key passages.
Your friend,
Vincent









"There yielded such fruitful results..."





They said they didn't have a complete plan for the whole of the bounty yet.

We haven't decided what we're going to do with the money yet. If Alan is still out there, it was meant for him after all.

But we're keeping the bourbon!

Family wants Yellowstone to train its bears.

For most outdoor explorers the chance of seeing a bear in the wilderness is something that is prepared for with caution in hopes of as little and as safe an interaction with the huge, walking dangerfuzz-bags as possible in their natural habitat.

Well these Yellowstone visitors had other expectations.

As posted on Reddit Aug. 27, some guests left this feedback for the staff at lodging in Yellowstone.



Well, it looks like someone needs to bone up on their bear-related injuries and fatalities as documented by the National Parks Service.

Or at least, someone needs to tell them about the poor hiker that died this month from a bear attack at Yellowstone.

Or just put a bear in their yard and let 'em see what happens.

Get 'em, bear.

Who knew PETA wanted to get into the Halloween costuming game?

By this time, you've all most likely heard of Cecil the lion and the American dentist who illegally killed him.

And also, you've maybe heard about the preeeeetty tasteless costume thrown together by costumeish.com so that Halloween revelers can celebrate in style. It looks like this:



The page says it includes "severed lion's head, smock with fake blood splatters, gloves with fake blood splatters, dentist tools in front pocket".

Hilariously, after a big outcry and even bigger petition, the page also says this:

Due to public outlash and petition launched by Doreen Harley and the almost 40,000 signatures along with the opinion of our company we will be donating 100% of the profit from our Lion Killer Costume to a Wildlife Foundation. Our intentions are not to make profit off the beloved Lion. However please remember, if our costume caused an immediate reaction such as disgust or anger to you just imagine how Cecil felt.



But that wasn't enough for PETA, because nothing's ever enough for PETA. The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals put their best, most vegan minds to the job and created a Halloween costume of their own called "Cecil's Revenge Halloween Costume".

Here's a picture of it again.



The product page describes it as such:

Halloween aficionados can turn the table on trophy hunters' ghoulish pastime with this cheeky new limited-edition costume. "Cecil's Revenge" features a dentist's uniform with a "Dr. Palmer" name tag, complete with a plush lion grabbing the dental coat from behind, leaving bloody claw marks. Accessorize with a drill, a toothbrush, or a toy crossbow.



Oh, and it also costs $140.

So just know that come Halloween, you have many options available to you

It's very surprising no one has put together a sexy Cecil the lion costume.
