Don't ever split a cab with this guy.

Get it?????????????????

Local Florida news channel WFLA says a 20-year-old suffered 'non life-threatening' injuries when he destroyed a car in just about the most complete way possible.

Winter Haven Police say the crash happened Tuesday just before 7 p.m. when Carlos Pino, 20, was traveling westbound along Cypress Gardens Blvd. At the curve near Interlochen Blvd., police say Pino lost control of his silver 1986 Nissan 300ZX and started to slide on the wet roadways as he negotiated the curve.

Pino overcorrected losing control of the vehicle and he started to skid sideways. Ultimately, the vehicle left the roadway striking a tree with the driver's side front wheel and quarter panel. The impact of the crash caused the vehicle to split in two with the front engine compartment on one side of the tree and the vehicle's cab with Pino buckled in coming to a rest on the opposite side of the tree. There were no other vehicles involved in the crash.

I mean, just look at this nonsense.

I feel like I have life-threatening injuries just looking at these pictures.

We have a word of warning for Mr. Pino:

Don't trust anyone who calls themselves 'Mr. Glass'.

A man in India was lynched by a mob for eating beef

We live in a very intense world, people.

The India Express is reporting that a mob of Hindus, the majority religion in India, pulled a Muslim man out of his home Sept. 28. They proceeded to beat him to death.

The cause? They heard rumors that had eaten beef.

Six people were arrested in connection with the attack, around 45 km from Delhi, sparking protests that led to police firing, damage to vehicles and injuries to a 20-year-old welder who works for the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) facility in the area.

Police said they have sent samples of meat taken from Akhlaq's home "to the forensics department for examination". Akhlaq's daughter, Sajida, said the family had "mutton in the fridge" and not beef.

Since then the story has taken on a life of its own and the hashtag #Dadri trended on Twitter, sparking an intense debate about religious tolerance and the societal schisms in India.

The Washington Post provides some context to the crazy crime.

The attack on Monday night in the northern Indian city of Dadri has shocked the country, but it wasn't exactly a surprise. For the past six months, meat has been a matter of major debate in India.

Eighty percent of the country's of 1.3 billion inhabitants are Hindu — who avoid beef for religious reasons. Roughly 250 million Indians are not. That tally includes almost 25 million Christians and up to 140 million Muslims, like Akhlaq.

The issue has raged in India for years. Since Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to power last May, however, incidents have increased, as they tend to do whenever a conservative government has been in power.

Social media can be a real pit of despair.

Stephanie Hernandez of Arkansas posted some pictures to Snapchat, Sept. 27, of her boyfriend Rafael Gonzalez in various poses holding a gun to her head. It wasn't long after that she was found dead of a gun shot wound.

Daily Dot has more details on this sad story:

In one of the snaps, the gun is close to Hernandez's head. In another, Hernandez casually posted the phrase "Strap Chat" over the pic—referencing the slang term that means you're carrying a gun.

Hours later, Hernandez was dead. The 21-year-old mother of two young girls was discovered with a gunshot wound. According to the New York Daily News, police found the house "ransacked, with blood all over the floor."

Gonzalez was arrested on Monday. According to Arkansas's KARK, the 20-year-old was charged with murdering his girlfriend, is being held without bond, and faces an initial hearing on Tuesday morning.

Be nice to each other, people.

Planned Parenthood is having a day.

Sept. 29 saw Cecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood testify in front of a House Oversight committee to respond to those video tapes.

In response, young adult author Daniel Handler, more popularly known as Lemony Snicket tweeted out that him and his wife would donate heavily to the cause.

Handler is most known for writing the children's series A Series of Unfortunate Events.

Planned Parenthood was very appreciative.

As The New York Times reported, it's been a bit of a circus on Captiol Hill.

In testimony before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, the president, Cecile Richards, faced off against conservative lawmakers who are seeking to strip federal funding from Planned Parenthood after videos released by anti-abortion activists purported to show officials from the health group trying to sell fetal tissue. It was her first appearance before Congress since the issue exploded in July.

The appearance by Ms. Richards before the House committee underscored a broader fight between the parties over Planned Parenthood as the clock ticks on a government shutdown that will begin on Thursday if a stopgap spending bill cannot be passed. While the funding fight is ostensibly about abortion and fetal tissue, the subtext is politics: Republicans perceive Planned Parenthood as a well-oiled, well-funded machine promoting Democratic candidates.

Tuesday's hearing quickly became contentious as Republican lawmakers assailed the organization as more a political advocacy organization that wastes federal money than a health care group that deserves to receive taxpayer dollars.

It's certainly provided some notable bits already.

Pokémon products have really bottomed out.

With a stacked cast of 718 Pokémon in their Pokédex, it looks like the possibilities are endless. Especially for companies trying to make money on the back end and not take one on the cheek.

We're done.

But seriously, the official Japanese Pokémon Center store announced their newest line of products today and, simply, it highlights Pokémon butts.

It's called the Hip Pop Parade.

And it is a very extensive line. Butts on butts on butts.

There are keychains.

There are coin purses and tote bags.

There are decals and coffee mugs.

And so much more.

We're not sure we would sport these money makers, but we can't deny they are just a little bit cute.

This gay couple really pulled one over on a pizzeria. Sort of.

Surely you remember Memories Pizza in Indiana. They were the company that said they would refuse service to any gay couple wanting the restaurant to cater their wedding.

It caused quite a stir. To the point where the pizzeria had to close under a wave of Yelp reviews and protests. Then, they received a healthy bout of funding from a supportive GoFundMe. It brought them almost $1 million, enough to open back up the restaurant and return to healthy, happy business.

Until now.

The description of the video says it all:

On Friday, September 25, 2015, GayCo Ensemble Member Robin Trevino drove to Walkerton, IN. GayCo's current production of 50 States of Gay celebrates the Supreme Court decision which made same-sex marriage the law of the land in the US by choosing a different state out of a hat each week. When Indiana was chosen, Robin decided to have a vow renewal/first legal ceremony in the state where he resides - Illinois. He drove to Walkerton; to Memories Pizza, where he purchased a couple pizzas, froze them in a cooler and brought them home. On Saturday, September 26, 2015 we was married to his husband before a legal officiant. After the ceremony, the happy couple (and their one year old daughter) served Memories Pizza to all their guests. Congrats to Memories Pizza for (unknowingly) catering your FIRST GAY WEDDING!

You know, it's not exactly catering it. But they seemed pleased with the ruse, and their marriage, so good for them.

Great Scott!

You may not know this, but Oct. 21 will mark the end date of the story in Back to the Future 2.

While we don't have huge hologram Jaws, self-lacing sneakers or hoverboards (At least not in any widely available, fun-looking form), we will get a special feature story featuring the likes of Christopher Lloyd reentering his role as Doc Brown.

This teaser is only a brief snippet of what we can expect when Universal rereleases the trilogy of excellent films (though the third is not-quite-as-excellent) on that notable date.

Until then you can just watch this brief trailer trying to unravel its mysteries about how Doc Brown will go about saving the world, and what exactly is causing the danger.

Probably some even more ancient Biff.
