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…"

The future is now.

A Canadian man named Catalin Alexandru Duru has set the new world record for longest distance traveled on a hoverboard.

While this might just seem like fictional story from “Back to the Future 2,” it’s actually very real.

Watch in the clip above as Duru travels 905 feet and 2 inches across Lake Ouareau in Quebec using a prototype device that he built over a period of just one year.

“I will showcase that stable flight can be achieved with a machine one can stand on and control with their feet,” he said.

Unlike with the hoverboard in the movie, he’s lifted off the surface to a height of about 5 meters using his propeller-based board, and it looks a bit more dangerous than Marty McFly’s version.

Although this probably will helps the average rider avoid crashing into large piles of manure.

“This is a truly mesmerising and incredible feat in the world of engineering and transportation,” saida Guinness World Records spokesperson about the news. “It’s always pleasing to see individuals such as Catalin Alexandru Duru achieve a Guinness World Records titles such as this in which personal endeavour continues to amaze us all.”

Mmmm… 'Murica!

Competitive eater Molly Schuyler broke a new record this weekend, eating 3 72-oz steaks in less than 20 minutes.

At this year's 72oz Showdown at the Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo, Texas, Schuyler was matched up against four teams of two, and she singlehandedly destroyed her competition while besting herself in the process.

The other teams included professional wrestlers and football players and they each had one hour to throw down as much as they could.

In total, Schuyler, who weighs just 124 pounds, ate 3 steaks, 3 backed potatoes, 3 shrimp cocktails, 3 side salads and 3 rolls.

Basically, as The Big Texan describes it, she consumed more than 13.5 pounds of food which is "the equivalent of a bowling ball or averaged sized three-month-old baby."



Anyone who stops by The Big Texan can take the challenge, but if they don't finish their meal in an hour they have to pay $72.

Schuyler not only got the 3 free meals, but also a $5,000 prize… and apparently an extended trip to the bathroom.

Waiting a long time for a plane to take off can suck, but it’s a lot more bearable if you have a flight attendant that can move like this woman.

According to the uploader, she is a breakdancer-turned-flight attendant, and she recently gave these passengers a bit of a show while waiting for everyone to board.

Watch her dance to Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk” and win over everyone on the plane.

While the East Coast was dealing with a blizzard, Arizona was getting unnaturally hot, according toFOX 10 Phoenix.

An malfunction on their weather map made it appear as if the temperatures were going to be in the thousands this week, but meteorologist Cory McCloskey handled it like a pro.

“Now I’m not authorized to evacuate Ahwatukee,” he said of a city reported to be 1270 degrees, “But this temperature seems pretty high.”

It’s also supposed to be a sweltering 2960 degrees in Cave Creek and 2385 in Wickenburg.

“I think steel boils at this temperature,” he said. “So Cave Creek… there’s probably nothing left up there. So don’t even bother looting up there.”

Fox 10 wrote about the error on their Facebook page:

“In the world of live news sometimes technology just doesn’t cooperate,” they said. “That’s why it’s important to have smart people who can handle the heat.”

He woke up like this.

You may remember Jimmy Pope, aka the guy who was “caught” on camera dancing in his underwear with a Swiffer the day after a Halloween party.

Well he’s back and strutting his stuff in his underwear yet again.

This time he’s on a balcony overlooking a huge crowd and a DJ who’s blasting dance music.

Pope calls it his “morning ritual” and one of his “most embarrassing” videos to date.
