The actual song doesn't kick in until a minute into the video. That's when this team of Destiny players rocks their bodies to Backstreet Boys' "Everybody".

They really make the most of the emotes and new dances that the Taken King expansion brought to Destiny last month. And they also are awesome.

Happy Wednesday!

That's no way to answer a reporter's question.

A television reporter asking about a surfacing voter fraud scandal was met with open hostility by an Alabama city commissioner Oct. 6.

According to Jezebel:

WTVY reporter Ken Curtis approached City Commissioner Amos Newsome of Dothan, Alabama to ask if he was planning to resign. Newsome, a Democrat, has been facing calls from fellow city commissioners to resign after three of his campaign workers were convicted of voter fraud. Newsome, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, has not been charged with fraud himself.

Newsome's response to Curtis's questions was, some face-shoving, some yelling, and then, finally, some hitting, hard enough that Curtis staggered backwards.

Curtis later posted a picture of himself on Twitter, showing the result of that slap/scratch.

Dotham police arrested Newsome and charged him with third-degree assault, a misdemeanor.

An abandoned Wizard of Oz theme park is now up for rent you lucky person.

That broken, dilapidated yellow brick road could be all yours.

In 1970, aspirational people built a theme park based around The Wizard of Oz in the mountains of northern California. A few years after, it shut its doors, causing entropy to take its course in the park.

And now, it's for rent!

Pixable has the story:

After the death of its original owner right before opening and a mysterious fire in 1975, Land of Oz closed it's doors in 1980.

In 2015, the park is still standing, but remains abandoned all but one day a year when it opens to the public. Even though the park was refurbished by locals enough to reopen once a year, it still remains in various states of disrepair and has that eerie, horror flick vibe that makes abandoned theme parks so alluring. That's partly because the upkeep of the land is dependent on the proceeds of that one-day opening.

There's not a ton you can do with that other than keeping it standing upright, even if an upwards of 8,000 people attend the event each year. Land Of Oz isn't a lost cause despite its closing. You can rent the place out for private parties and take private tours if you're into that whole abandoned fairy tale aesthetic.

If you're into the idea, the Land of Oz website has all the information on how you can hold your wedding, birthday, bar mitzvah or demon sacrifice in a very special place.

Look at this place:

And this is either the Emerald City or the witch's castle. It's not pretty.

Here's a video about the creepy place's history:

It's a dismal world after all.

A new Instagram account called sadtopographies, shares the most depressing place names possible.

"Somewhere to go, when you're feeling low," the description reads.

Mostly though, they're just funny.

Gizmodo found out why Burger King's black burger turns your poop green.

As October's shadow loomed long on September, we knew Burger King would bring a black-bunned burger to celebrate the creepy season.

What we didn't know is that eating the thing would turn your poop a vibrant, verdant, lustrous green. Careful there, that link shows actual human waste.

Furthermore, we didn't know why. We only had to hold ourselves against the dark ignorance that blanketed us.

People had lots of speculation, from A-1 sauce to demonic leprechauns, but it was Gizmodo that ultimately revealed the truth.

But while the poop is indisputably green, the dye causing it might not be. The dyes that make the bun black are a combination of Yellow #6, Red #40, Caramel Color, and Blue #1. Blue #1 is also known as Brilliant Blue FCF. Brilliant Blue doesn't absorb well in the intestines, so it often comes out in the poop—it just doesn't come out blue. The internet is full of concerned parents talking about giving their kids a purple drink or smoothie (made with red and blue food coloring) only to change green diapers or find green stains on underwear. Brilliant blue is often combined with tartrazine, a yellow food dye, to make green dye. A site called The Poop Report claims that blue food dye (Blue #5 this time) combines with bile to make poop green, although bile by itself can turn poop green.

In the end, the green product of the black burger is probably the result of blue food coloring. The good news is that it's coming out of you because it's not getting absorbed into your body.

Now we can sleep soundly and try to eat stuff that's not cosmetically dyed to celebrate a time of year.

Dad created a class to teach fathers how to fix their daughters' hair

Bond with your kids, dads, because they're hair today and gone tomorrow.

Redditor MashedPotatoh, a single dad in Daytona, Florida, shared his story of helping dads connect with their daughters in a post where the title says it all.

"I created a Dads and Daughters hair class to help other fathers learn about doing hair. We had a small class full of dads that learned basic brushing, ponytails, braids and buns. The turnout was great! I'm so proud of these dads for stepping up and building a better bond with their daughters."

The dedicated dad is calling his class Daddy Daughter Hair Factory and it received a whole lot of love from the Reddit community.

He proceeded to provide a lot more information by answering questions in the comments.

I decided to put this class together after multiple requests from friends to teach them how to do hairstyles. I'm a single father and my daughter loves challenging me with new styles. It was great to share what I have learned over the years.

...In tonight's class we went over the basics. I taught them how to comb out tangles and do some basic styles. I had the daughter's talk about their favorite styles and we also discussed scalp sensitivity. My daughter and i were trying to think of a way to make it more exciting for the girls involved. We were considering making bracelets by braiding, since most of the dads wanted to sharpen their braiding technique.

He said the dad turnout was really varied, with different expectations and different backgrounds.

I asked the dads what they did for work, and it was an interesting bunch. We had a prison guard, mechanic, general contractor, ATT tech, Apple tech, healthcare recruiter and a carpenter. Definitely out of their element but they were all excited to learn. It was beautiful.

...Two of the dads learned how to do buns because their daughters are in dance class, and they were excited to learn how easy it was with the right hair pin. I know they are going to appreciate it.

MashedPotatoh has been thrilled with the response and just wants to see greater relationships between fathers and their daughters.

I would love to see it become more popular. I know many girls that grew up with close relationships with their fathers, and they tend to be so well rounded. They usually comment on my relationship with my daughter and how much their dad means to them. I think it is a special bond for girls and it guides them to make better choices later in life with who they choose to be with.

...It was the first class, kind of put together to get a feel for what will be needed for future class. I'm planning on doing this once a month at the hair academy and another one at the community center. The idea is to have a small group of dads and help them with their hair. Most of them are married and doing this to help around the house, but there are a few single dads like myself that want to learn more.

...I have funding for future class and to start a class for woman [sic]. I have dads looking to start groups in their area. I have two scheduled radio interviews. It's all been positive. It's not even about the hair, it's about the bond, it's about coming together and sharpening our skills. I'm excited to inspire. I am very happy because if this. Thank you and everyone on this group for always being kind. It means so much.

He has set up a Twitter account and plans to spread the word there and on Facebook.

Vladimir Putin played hockey and scored 7 goals on his birthday.

Ah, you're Putin me on with this one.

For his Oct. 7 birthday, the President of the Russian Federation strapped on his skates and took to the ice like a tyrannical zamboni. Vladamir Putin played against NHL stars in Socci and scored a whopping seven goals, leading his team to a 15-10 victory.

So impressive.

Mashable has more details:

The event kicked off the fifth season of Russia's Night Hockey League, and saw Putin playing alongside international hockey legends like Pavel Bure and Vladimir Lutchenko. His team took home victory, beating their opponents 15 to 10.

The opposing team included Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu as well as Putin's close friends — tycoons Gennady Timchenko and Arkady Rotenberg. Both were slapped with Western sanctions last year for their ties to Putin in the wake of Russia's annexation of Crimea.

But Putin was undoubtedly the star of the show, and event went home with a trophy for his team's win at the end and a medal for his contribution to hockey in Russia.

There's no reason at all to question Putin's ability to score seven goals playing against hockey legends.

He's just that good.

This isn't the first time, he's shown such amazing prowess in three periods of play. Just last May, Putin bested his birthday score, by putting eight pucks into the net.

Truly the world of hockey is missing out on a player that would eclipse the great Gretzky.

Here's the highlight reel from Wednesday's game.
