Ruby Holt spent the majority of her life on a farm in Tennessee, but just before her 101st birthday she finally got to go to the beach.

After discovering she had never been, two employees at her assisted living center applied for a grant through a charity organization called Wish of a Lifetime, which funded her entire trip to the Alabama coast on the Gulf of Mexico.

What did she think after taking a stroll on the sand and putting her feet in the water?

"It's cold."

Talk about a "Series of Unfortunate Events."

Daniel Handler, author of the Lemony Snicket children's books, decided to try out some extremely racist jokes while hosting the 2014 National Book Awards this week. (You can watch the cringeworthy video here.)

He made the controversial remarks after Jacqueline Woodson, who is black, won an award for her book "Brown Girl Dreaming."

"I told you! I told Jacqueline she was going to win," he said. "And I said that if she won, I'd would tell all of you something I learned about her this summer, which is that Jacqueline Woodson is allergic to watermelon. Just let that sink into your mind."

And then he made things even more uncomfortable.

"I said, 'You have to put that into a book.' And she said, 'You put it into a book.' And I said, 'I'm only writing a book about a black girl who is allergic to watermelon if I get a blurb from you, Cornel West, Toni Morrison and Barack Obama saying, 'This guy's OK. This guy is fine.'"

He has apologized twice on Twitter since the debacle. And in the latest apology, he is trying to make up for his faux pas by putting some money towards a charity called We Need Diverse Books, "a grassroots organization dedicated to advocating and supporting non-majority narratives."

Time to change those passwords again!

In a move to pressure game companies to update their servers and prevent cyberattacks, a hacker group named DerpTrolling has posted thousands of usernames and passwords from PSN, 2K Games and Windows Live.

"Dear Internet, the following is a very small portion of Lord Gaben and the rest of his crews glorious raids across the high seas of the Internet," the group said.

The document they released contains info on 2,131 PSN users, 1,473 Windows Live users and 2,000 2K Game Studios users, but they say they have access to alot more data (around 7 million usernames and passwords) which has not been leaked… yet.

The group also claimed resposibility for a DDoS attack on Blizzard's "World of Warcraft" servers last weekend.

Mystery of the Day: Is This a Drug Deal on Live TV?

The latest viral mystery making some news today is an apparent drug deal taking place behind a Fox 25 news reporter in Worcester, Massachusetts.

In the video, two men are seen meeting in the background and engaging in some sort of transaction before fleeing the scene.

Drug deal or not, the clip appears to be fairly old, as the reporter in the video, Jim Polito, no longer works for Fox 25 (as of September of this year) and the video was also posted in February 2013 on WTAG's site.

But what do you think? Most idiotic drug deal ever, or overreaction by Internet?

Polito apparently knows he is going viral as well, as show by this retweet.

From WFTV:

An intoxicated New Smyrna Beach man wanted Taco Bell, but employees wouldn't serve him because he was on a bicycle in the drive-through lane, authorities said.

They called New Smyrna Beach police when Gabriel Harris, 33, refused to leave after placing an order at the drive-through window as the restaurant was closing just after 3 a.m. on Sunday.

His is the human condition, the struggle we all face. Bless you, drunk-munchies cyclist guy.

Sexism Experiment of the Day: News Anchor Wore Same Suit for a Year

This week in shirts and sexism

Karl Stefanovic, from Channel 9's "Today" show in Australia, revealed for the first time this past weekend, that he has been wearing the exact same blue Burberry suit every day for a year (with a couple exceptions).

The experiment, he said, was to highlight the sexism that his female co-anchors face on a daily basis.

While no one noticed or commented on his clothes, his co-host, Lisa Wilkinson, has said that she receives regular criticism and style advice from their viewers. A lecture she gave last year inspired Stefanovic to conduct the experiment.

"Women are judged much more harshly and keenly for what they do, what they say and what they wear," he said.

The video above shows every suit he wore in 2014.

And you might also be wondering: Did he wash it? A few times, apparently.

"It does get a little bit stinky," he said.
