Illustrator and designer Renee Lusano captured this harrowing video from a drone as her group was nearly washed away in a flash flood in Maui.

About 2 miles into a hike into the forrest called "Commando," it started to rain. But the group continued on their trek to a jungle waterfall. The group reached the waterfall and started to swim.

Then THIS happened.

"Then suddenly without warning there was an enormous rush of water coming over the waterfall, it had to have been instantly 50 times as much water rushing over, and the water was flowing fast."

Lusano was able to capture the entire scene via drone while scrambling to find the rest of her group, some of which had been swept into the waterfall by the currents.

Eventually the group was able to find a patch of dry land to call 911 and get airlifted out of the area.

Kentucky Clerk Still Refuses to Give Marriage Licenses Even After Supreme Court Intervenes

UPDATE:

The Kentucky clerk defiant in her opposition to marry same-sex couples has been jailed for contempt of court.

Kim Davis was taken into federal custody today after a hearing with Judge David L. Bunning, another legal defeat for the clerk who has said issuing same-sex marriage licenses violates her religious convictions.

"The court cannot condone the willful disobedience of its lawfully issued order," the judge said. "If you give people the opportunity to choose which orders they follow, that's what potentially causes problems."

The judge said Davis would be released once she follows his original order to issue marriage licenses.

Until then—we hear that Orange is the New Black, Kim.

ORIGINAL POST:

"Under God's authority," is the reason Kentucky clerk Kim Davis continued to refuse to issue any marriage licenses today.

Hours after the Supreme Court refused to intervene on her behalf, Davis met with one gay couple and told them she would still not issue marriage licenses because of her religious convictions.

The clerk has not issued any marriage licenses since the marriage equality Supreme Court ruling in June. And her battle through the courts has drawn a national audience.

"I've asked you all to leave. You are interrupting my business," Davis is heard saying before walking back into her office.

After the blood-boiling encounter, lawyers for the same-sex couple who originally sued Davis filed a motion to find her in contempt of court. The motions seeks fines and not jail time.

Just a reminder: Kim Davis has been married four times. Just let that sink in.

Someone thought 'The Golden Girls' needed a pr0n parody. That person is a monster.

The film stars adult star veterans Nina Hartley, Luna Azul, Karen Summer, and Darla Crane playing "your favorite retirement home GILFs." GILF stands for, well, you can draw the conclusion on that one.

In the extremely foul language-heavy parody above, the Golden Girls laugh and sing their way through their many sexual encounters.

But maybe a Golden Girls pr0n parody isn't so far fetched after all. Refinery29 recently watched every episode of the show and calculated the number of men each women slept with.

Blanche (obviously) came out on top with 165 beaus.

I'm h0rny!

In another twist and turn of the #DeflatgeGate saga, Tom Brady's 4-game suspension has been lifted by a court.

Judge Richard M. Berman nullified the NFL's suspension in a 40-page decision, which basically stated that the league didn't do anything right in investigating accusations the New England Patriots deflated footballs during the Super Bowl.

Deadspin summed up the decision in these three points:

The NFL is expected to appeal, which could reinstate Brady's suspension. But the Internet still had a lot of feeling about today's decision...

Even Snoop Dogg got in on the action, criticizing the suspension reversal on Instagram.

That's one way to deal with having your license suspended.

Texas State student Tara Monroe is turning heads and catching the attention of the Internet after deciding to use a very unusual mode of transportation on campus—a hot pink and purple Barbie Jeep.

Monroe's license was suspended after refusing a breathalyzer test while leaving a Waka Flocka concert, she told MySA.com.

The industrial engineering junior decided to purchase the Barbie Jeep on Craigslist for $60, and she named it after the little girl she bought the jeep from—Charlene.

Since Monroe started going around town with Charlene, the college student has become sort of a minor celebrity. Other students post pictures of her on Snapchat and Twitter quite regularly.

"This is the best way I could have gotten my 15 minutes of fame," she said. "Basically, it was the best decision I've made in college, yet…"

Fox News host Harris Faulkner has a rodent problem. And she wants $5 million because of it.

In a lawsuit filed Monday in U.S. District Court in New Jersey, Faulkner is suing Hasbro because she says a "Little Toy Shop" hamster shares her name and likeness. The toy is also deemed a choking hazard, the suit says, which causes Faulkner distress for being associated with "harming small children."

She calls out "complexion, the shape of its eyes, and the design of its eye makeup" as evidence that the company stole her identity.

To be fair, the hamster does share the same name. But as far as looks go, you can decided that for yourself.

If you want to own your own little piece of Fox News history, Ebay has an original Harris Faulkner for $40.52.

You shouldn't rob anyone, but you definitely shouldn't rob someone who is a professional MMA fighter.

MMA strawweight Monique Bastos was on her way to the gym when two men attempted to steal her cell phone. Little did they know, she could very easily defend herself.

The entire encounter was posted to Reddit, and user 1Ender provided a rough translation of the man being held in a "triangle" by Bastos.

So just remember would-be robbers, tread lightly. You may just get ahold of someone like Bastos.

And here's reason number 195708 to never trust anything on the Internet.

A woman by the name of Natalie Amyot fooled a lot of people this week by uploading a video claiming that she was looking for the father of her unborn child. As it turns out, this was all a horrible viral marketing stunt.

The story goes that Amyot met a man on vacation in Australia's Sunny Coast, fell in love with him and lost contact when she went back to France.

Now, six weeks later she is back in Australia looking for her lost love/baby daddy.

She even set up a Facebook account for people to reach out with information about the mystery man.

But a new video posted Tuesday revealed the entire story to be a hoax. A man joins her on screen and spills the beans.

"This has been a viral video for Holiday Mooloolaba. My name is Andy Sellar and I own a company called Sunny Coast social media," he says to the camera.

So, there you have it. Everything is marketing. And the Internet is a horrible place.
