Intruders of the Day: Flock of Birds Take Over Man’s House

Good thing these bird aren’t the Alfred Hitchcock type.

A guy in Texas came home after running some errands to find a huge flock of birds had infiltrated his home. He captured the chaos in two separate videos (part 1 is above and part 2 is embedded below).

“There are birds everywhere,” he says. “This is fucked up.”

There were upwards of 25 of the animals fluttering around, which he assumes were swallows.

He described the bizarre incident in a post on Reddit:

I opened the front door and heard what sounded like wings… I kind of flipped sh*t. Long story short We got them all out safely. There was a lot of cleanup involved, but all of the birds are fine. We think they got in through the chimney since last summer we thought we could hear birds chirping.

So it’s probably not an evil curse or omen, but he if he comes home to find plague of locusts in the next few days, it might be time to call a priest.

Surprise of the Day: Hungry Great White Shark Steals Fisherman’s Catch

A fishing charter in New Zealand recently got to experience “Jaws” in real life.

As one of the fishermen reels in his line, he notices the fish is actually half-eaten, and just seconds later, a giant great white shark pops up to finish what he started.

“Did you see that?” he shouts.

The video was uploaded to Captain Bucko’s Fishing Charters Facebook page on March 9, and in the comments the company says it’s the first great white they’ve seen in the Bay of Islands, an area off the northern coast of the country.

Looks like they’re gonna need a bigger boat.

 

Weasel Riding Woodpecker Inspires Hilarious WeaselPecker Meme

Essex photographer Martin Le-May captured this epic moment on Monday, in which a weasel is soaring on the back of a woodpecker. It was Tweeted out by birder/wildlife photographer Jason Ward where it quickly went viral and had many people wondering if it was real or photoshopped. It’s apparently very real.

As we walked we heard a distressed squawking and I saw that flash of green. So hurriedly I pointed out to Ann the bird and it settled into the grass behind a couple of small silver birch trees. Both of us trained our binoculars and it occurred that the woodpecker was unnaturally hopping about like it was treading on a hot surface. Lots of wing flapping showing that gloriously yellow/white colour interspersed with the flash of red head feathers. Just after I switched from my binoculars to my camera the bird flew across us and slightly in our direction; suddenly it was obvious it had a small mammal on its back and this was a struggle for life.

He added that the woodpecker managed to get away, while the weasel wandered off into the grass.

Real or not, you can’t put a picture like that online and expect to walk away meme-free.

Here are some of the best responses from Twitter of the #WeaselPecker:

Turkey Is Investigating Minecraft After Complaints of Violence

People in Turkey are really worried that “Minecraft” is going to turn their kids into hardened criminals.

The country’s Family and Social Policies Ministry has launched an investigation into the game after receiving numerous complaints from parents that the game encourages violence (particularly towards women), according to Hurriyet Daily News.

Apparently Turkey hasn’t heard of GTA V.

“In the higher levels of the game the player may need to kill women, allies and even friends for survival reasons,” the article says.

Minecraft is probably one of the least violent games in existence right now, with a majority of the game devoted to hours of mining, farming and building a life in a blocky, pixelated sandbox where anything is possible.

According to the report:

If the ministry’s investigation decides that the game encourages violence, the ministry will proceed by opening a law suit against the game for a country-wide ban.



This isn’t the first time “Minecraft” has been accused of promoting violence.

Last year PETA launched a HQ in “Minecraft” as a sort of animal sanctuary where no one was allowed to harm the digital creatures.

Wait for it…

The uploader of this video could sense this woman’s rage as she dealt with the person at a ferry’s ticket counter, so he started recording.

Thanks to his quick thinking, we are now blessed with this fantastic moment where she flips the hell out.

In case you can’t tell, she is “so mad.” SO MAD.

Bully of the Day: Pastor Says He Punched Kid in the Name of God

New Jersey Pastor Eric Dammann is using his fist to force God's will upon his people.

In a sermon that reportedly dates back to July but has recently gone viral, Damann says he met a kid named Ben in Calgary who was a "smart aleck."

He wasn't taking the Lord seriously, so he did what any peaceful man of God would do and knocked him to the ground.

"So I walked over to him and went, Bam! Punched him in the chest as hard as I could," he said. "I crumpled the kid. I just crumpled him."

He later apologized saying the clip was out of context.

"I do not endorse child abuse or the punching of children," he told The NY Daily News. "My intention in the sermon was to make a point of how God can use our mistakes. The viral clip does not show the whole sermon, where I say what I did was wrong."
