This right here is great.

Thirty three-year-old Christopher Hiscock seems like a pretty normal guy according to the National Post.

Except of course for the fact that he stole a truck to drive west, broke into a ranch and spent the day living comfortably in its confines before the resident came home and found Hiscock.

"She found the accused in her home watching TV," Crown lawyer Mike Wong said.

"He had started a fire in the fireplace and prepared himself a meal. He said he had been driving by and the door was open, so he came in.

..."The accused appears to have done some laundry. He also fed the cats and put out some hay for the horses," Wong said. "He used (the residents') toothbrush and shaver, he had taken some meat out of the freezer to thaw and he had written in their diary."

Yes. That's right. He even found the residents' diary and wrote in it.

In beautiful proof that the law can sometimes work for the people, the court released his one diary entry.

"Today was my first full day at the ranch," he wrote in the diary. "I fed the cats and horses. So much I can do here I have to remind myself to just relax and take my time.

"I don't feel alone here, I guess with 2 cats and 3 horses it's kinda hard to be alone. Last night I had a fire in the house. It was so (peaceful). I slept like a little baby.

I saw a picture in the basement on the wall of a man holding and weighing fish on a boat. Looking at him I realized we look a lot alike, but I think I'm more handsome."

They did not release either a picture of Hiscock or a the picture of the man weighing the fish, so we cannot confirm or deny whether Hiscock is more handsome. Although that question will keep us awake at night.

The story has a kind of happy ending, since he was only given probation by the judge.

Hiscock, who has no prior criminal record, apologized in court.

"I made a lot of mistakes," he said. "There's really no excuses for it."

He was still beaming about his brief stay at the ranch.

"Beautiful ranch," he said. "Gorgeous. I was driving and I just turned in. Beautiful place."

Judge Chris Cleaveley placed Hiscock on a one-year probation term with orders barring him from contacting the residents of the ranch and the owner of the Ontario truck.

But his future prospects look less than ideal.

"I really have nowhere to go," he said... "The woods is a good place, I suppose. There's a lot of fish out there."

Never stop dreaming, folks.

Mockery can't take the class out of this sorority after MLB announcers notice their selfies.

Looks like they had good parents after all.

After a video went viral yesterday of MLB announcers mocking sorority girls ignoring a baseball game to take selfies, the Arizona Diamondbacks wanted to make things good with the women of Alpha Chi Omega.

They offered the sorority free tickets to an upcoming game in hopes of making everything square, showing there were no hard feelings.

In a classy response, the sorority publicly thanked the organization, but said the tickets would be better used for a charity. They also brought attention to the fact that October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and invited people to donate toward protecting families.

Alpha Chi Omega at Arizona State University would like to thank the Arizona Diamondbacks and Fox Sports for reaching out...

Just a perfect response.

But also, ladies, we all know that selfies have killed more people than sharks this year. So, please capture your experiences responsibly.

Chris Mintz stepped in to help others in the UCC shooting and was shot 7 times as a result

In the wake of national tragedies like yesterday's school shooting at Oregon's Umpqua Community College that left at least 10 dead and seven injured, it's easy to just remember the villain. But heroes were there as well.

One of which was army veteran 30-year-old Chris Mintz, who authorities are saying saved many lives that day. He was shot seven times as a result, but he survived and is currently in stable condition.

His family said that he blocked doors to keep the shooter from getting close to other students. Other outlets claim that he rushed at the shooter to protect the ones around him.

NBC News gives some background on Mintz:

Chris Mintz "tried to protect some people," his aunt Sheila Brown told NBC News in a telephone interview. "We were told he did heroic things to protect some people."

She said that Mintz was shot seven times and had been in surgery since the shooting that left 10 dead, including the gunman.

Originally from Randleman, North Carolina, Mintz served about 10 years in the Army. He had just started college, Brown said. He was shot in the back, abdomen and hands, and had two broken legs, she added.

"We're not sure how his legs got broken," she said. "He was on the wrestling team and and he's done cage-fighting so it does not surprise me that he would act heroically."

That's him smiling after having seven bullets removed. Goals.

On top of everything else, the shooting occurred on the sixth birthday of Mintz's son.

Luckily, the little boy still has a father to raise him. And a hero to boot.

A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help Mintz and his family on this long and costly recovery.

Welcome to the wonderful world of emotions, little lady. From here on out, it's all downhill.

Poor Mila somehow went the past year without knowing that Maroon 5 frontman and apparent heart throb Adam Levine got married to Behati Prinsloo. If she went that long, there probably wasn't any real reason for her mother to break the news and the little girls heart.

But, talk she did and now Mila howls from her buckled in car seat in a way that echoes the existential longing reverberated deep within each of us.

We are all Mila.

Maybe the kid was running Flan's Mod?

All a Virginia Beach mother wanted to do was order a foam Minecraft sword for her son's eighth birthday from Toys R Us. Well, apparently, someone in that supply line had a sh*tload of ammunition they wanted to get rid of.

Because when the online shopper opened the UPS delivered package Sept. 30, that's what she found.

Local channel 13 News Now has the story:

Jasemin Stephenson says she ordered a "Minecraft Foam Diamond Sword" from the toy store's website last week.

When the package arrived Tuesday, Stephenson says she found 800 rounds of 9mm ammunition in the box, along with the sword.

13News Now has reached out to Toys "R" US and is still waiting to hear back.

Crazy, right?

Here's the video from 13 News Now.

Well, here's one for you.

According to The Daily Mail, an English family was driving down the road when their vehicle caught fire in a bad way. Smoke was pouring out of the car and onto a pregnant Lucy Day, Stephen Grant and their three-year-old daughter.

Luckily, Spider-Man was there.

Or rather it was Tom Roche, a children's entertainer who happened to be driving by in his full Spider-Man outfit.

He stopped and rescued the family from the burning automobile.

Mr Roche, 24, who was with his girlfriend, said: 'We could smell unburnt petrol and could see smoke pouring out from under the car.

'It was like something out of an action film, I was expecting the car to explode at any second.

'We tried flagging them down and when they stopped I was shouting at them to get away from the car.

'We called them over to us and they got in the car.

She was saying "we need to go to hospital", so we drove over there as quick we could.

All this while I was dressed in a full-body latex Spider-Man costume.'

Now you may be wondering, 'Why were they headed to the hospital?'

Good question.

That's because Grant had apparently cut his finger off using a lawnmower and it needed to be reattached.

So Roche/Spider-Man high-tailed it to the hospital where doctors successfully put the finger back on.

There's still no cause determined in what caused the fire, but it ended up looking like this:

What are the odds of all of these things happening?
