Two kittens ran onto subway tracks in Brooklyn, and the MTA halted trains for about an hour as workers tried to corral the felines, witnesses and officials said. MTA also shut off power to the area so workers could go down and try to coax the kittens into carrying cases.

It wasn't known if the kittens were strays or pets.

There's nothing like an new haircut to put a pep in your step.

But this Australian sheep is probably feeling a little better than with the average haircut. And that's because he is also 90 pounds lighter.

A Canberra sheep named Chris was recently captured by animal welfare workers after getting lost from his herd for more than two years. It seems that during this time he really let himself go.

Chris' fleece was sheered off Thursday by four-time national shearing champion Ian Elkins, and it weighed in at around 90 pounds, easily topping the previous record.

Fleece this large can cause serious health problems, said RSPCA ACT chief executive Tammy Ven Dange.

"It can actually make it impossible for them to go to the bathroom. We don't know how bad the damage could be because this has been building for awhile," she said.

Chris is reportedly in good health, and will likely join a local herd to live out the rest of his (lighter) days.

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.

Genius Idea of the Day: Texas Student Rides Barbie Jeep Around Campus After DWI Arrest

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…"
