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.

Apology of the Day: Rosetta Scientist Sorry for 'Sexist' Shirt

We can land a spacecraft on a comet, but a man's shirt has become the big news story here on Earth.

Physicist Matt Taylor was criticized this week for wearing a shirt with semi-naked women and guns on it during a livestreamed post-landing interview about the Rosetta Mission, deemed sexist and innaporpriate by many people, particularly women in science. And critics on Twitter voiced their complaints with #ShirtStorm and #ShirtGate.

But in a Google Hangout Friday with updates on the mission, a teary-eyed Taylor in a very neutral blue hoodie, apologized for the shirt.

"I made a big mistake, and I offended many people," he said. "And I'm very sorry about this."

Meanwhile on said comet, the Philae lander sent back its first image from the comet Thursday, and it has begun drilling in order to reposition itself into the sunlight. But this maneuver could also make Philae do a cartwheel and possibly put an abrupt end to the mission.

Ahem… Is this the cat you're looking for?

A large, wild cat - initially thought to be a tiger - has been seen roaming around France near Disneyland Paris, and local city officials are telling people to stay indoors.

It was first spotted in the town of Montevrain near some tennis courts - a very bouncy surface (just saying) - and footprints have been spotted which resemble those of an adolescent tiger, according to a French news site.


Dozens of troops and police officers are on the hunt, and authorities are also using helicopters with thermal imaging to track down the beast.

EuroDisney says it has no big cats in its park, and a nearby wild cat animal park says all animals are accounted for.

Air Travel Nightmare of the Day: Door Falls Off Bono’s Plane

In the most recent terrifying news from the sky, a door fell off Bono's private plane Wednesday. The U2 frontman was traveling from Dublin to Berlin for the Bambi Awards, where his band was being honored and was scheduled to perform.

The door was on the rear of the plane where the luggage is kept, and no one knows how it happened.

"There can be many reasons for this incident. Either something broke on the door or the door wasn't closed properly. Those are the usual problems that occur," an official with the German Federal Bureau of Aircraft Accident Investigation said.

Most likely, however the pilot blew the door off in frustration, after he couldn't figure out how to remove U2's "Songs of Innocence" from his iTunes library.

Internet Freedom Fighter of the Day: President Obama Gets Tough on Net Neutrality

Obama made his first big push in the fight for Net Neutrality Monday, with a statement encouraging the FCC to keep the Internet open and free.

"There are no gatekeepers deciding which sites you get to access. There are no toll roads in the information superhighway," Obama says in the accompanying video, which opens with a playful little "buffering" animation.

FCC chair Tom Wheeler proposed new Internet traffic rules earlier this year, and millions of people commented on the FCC website in protest.

From his statement:

"Net neutrality" has been built into the fabric of the Internet since its creation — but it is also a principle that we cannot take for granted. We cannot allow Internet service providers (ISPs) to restrict the best access or to pick winners and losers in the online marketplace for services and ideas. That is why today, I am asking the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to answer the call of almost 4 million public comments, and implement the strongest possible rules to protect net neutrality.

Obama also emphasized that ISPs shouldn't block sites that are legal or throttle a user's service.
