If you thought a Google Street View vehicle hitting a donkey was reckless, try a triple hit-and-run attempt involving two mini-vans and a truck. Apparently that's what happened in Bogor, Indonesia yesterday, when a Google Street View driver crashed into multiple cars while trying to flee from the first collision with a mini-van. According to the local officials, it all began when the driver crashed his Subaru hatchback into a public minivan while on the job, but upon arriving at a repair garage nearby to sort out the damage and the cost, the driver panicked and tried to drive away, though he eventually gave up after crashing into a second bus and a parked truck less than two miles away from the scene. While the driver's name or the total cost of damages remain unknown, the police says the driver was released after sorting out the payments for the vehicles and had he not tried to dodge the initial bill, it would have cost somewhere around 200,000 rupiah, or about $17.
With all these stories about people digging their own graves on social networking sites, should we even be surprised that it was a self-incriminating Instagram photo that led to this week's major illegal firearm bust in New York City? According to the news, the NYPD began their investigation after seeing photos of old guns and wads of cash posted by Brooklyn's aspiring rapper Neno Best via his Instagram account, eventually uncovering a multi-state trafficking ring and seizing a total of 243 handguns, nine rifles and two shotguns in New York and South Carolina.
In what appears to be a terrible misfortune of oversight, the South Carolinian newspaper Rock Hill Herald has issued an apology after running a large advertisement for firearm sales alongside its coverage of the Connecticut school shooting in the Saturday edition. While the editor of the newspaper explained that it wasn't intentional on anyone's part as the ad placement had been determined on Thursday morning prior to the tragic development on the next day, he also acknowledged the fault on failing to recognize the mishap before running the paper for delivery on Saturday morning.
Believe it or not, a similar episode had been previously reported back in July, when The Denver Post displayed a banner ad for shotguns directly above its coverage of Aurora theater mass shooting in Colorado and subsequently issued an apology.
Has Gangnam Style's parody sensation finally caved in to the laws of diminishing returns? Dubbed "the single worst video on the entire Internet" by Redditors, this hilariously off-beat parody created by a group of students at Garden Spot High School in New Holland, Pennsylvania, is a must-watch video of the day.
