A man who had just finished binge-watching The Walking Dead on Netflix told police he killed his friend because the victim was slowly turning into a zombie.

Police say the New Mexico man, 23-year-old Damon Perry, beat his pal to death with an electric guitar and microwave before being taken into custody for threatening people with a knife around his apartment complex.

Wow, no chill.

Two maintenance workers held down the man before police arrived.

He was taken into custody where he told police his friend tried to bite him, Walker style.

A local newspaper says Perry was intoxicated at the time of arrest.

Did the suspect look something like this?

WTF of The Day: People Are Rally Angry Because This Math Strategy Says '5+5+5=15' is Wrong

What if someone told you that 5+5+5 doesn't equal 15?

Any sane person with a second grand education would call your bluff. But they'd be wrong. At least, according to the Common Core curriculum.

A photo of a student getting this answer wrong blew up on Reddit last week, causing mayhem across the Internet.

The "correct" answer to solving 5 times 3 would be 3+3+3+3+3.

Supporters of Common Core say that adding 5 groups of 3 together is correct because that strategy will help students once they reach more advanced math.

Back in September, a dad wrote a check in "Common Core math" to show how strange some of the strategies are.

And Common Core has become a hot button issue in the GOP presidential election. The Donald has come out against the academic standards while Jeb! has long support them.

"The children look delicious. May I have a taste?"


Police say that's the message in a letter sent to a Minnesota family by a disgruntled neighbor who was angry the family's young children were being loud.

The note came from 38-year-old Carrie Pernula, who is now facing charges of gross misdemeanor terroristic threats and stalking.

"She was angry because the kids were leaving things in her yard and I think being a little noisy, being kids, the way kids are," Champlin Deputy Police Chief Ty Schmidt told WCOO.

She also reportedly sent magazine subscriptions to the family under the name of "Your Tasty Children."

Pernula must have been watching too much Hocus Pocus.

Crime of The Day: Man Admits to Murdering Roommate After Tarot Card Reader Predicts It

A psychic actually predicted something that came true. But it wasn't good news.

Police say Star Randel-Hanson, 49, stabbed his housemate Derick Marney, 70, and left him for dead.

Ten days later, the man visited tarot card reader Jayne Braiden for a reading. What she saw was terrifying.

When Braiden turned over the death card, Randel-Hanson allegedly confessed to the murder of his friend.

Here's how it went down, according to Mirror:

Ms Braiden told the court: "The first card was the 'blasted tower'. That means lots of arguments, lots of bad feelings.

"Then there was 'the emperor', which signified a dominant male. Then there was the 'death card'."

She said she told Randel-Hanson she could "see that something really bad has happened and that we need to discuss this further."

"He said: 'It's really bad'."

"I said to him we need to talk about everything that has happened.

"And that is when he told me... he said that he had killed him."

After he confessed, Braiden phoned police—but it took them over 55 minutes to arrive. The two talked about other subjects and joked around until police showed up to arrest Randel-Hanson.

He told police that he accidentally stabbed Marney when he turned around quickly with a knife in his hands.

What do the cards have to say?

"Screw this airline!"

An American Airlines passenger yelled that along with a chorus of "boos" as a woman was removed from a flight from Phoenix to Portland on Sunday.

But the crowd wasn't jeering at the passenger, they were upset at the flight attendant they felt unjustly kicked the woman off the plane.

In a video that surfaced online, the unidentified woman can be seen weeping as a female flight attendant informs her she must exit the plane. The incident started after a male attendant asked the woman to move seats, but she didn't hear him.

"You're so mean to me. I didn't do anything," the woman says.

American Airlines says the company is looking into the video. But you can't stop the rage of the Internet.

Florida Man took the night off from causing mayhem, and Florida Woman took his place.

Whitney Beall, a 23-year-old woman, was arrested this weekend for drunk driving after using the mobile app Periscope to live-stream her entire ride.

"I'm super drunk, I don't even know how to explain it," she says to start the 11-minute broadcast below. The entire broadcast lasted over 40 minutes.

With tips from viewers and one officer using their own Periscope account to spot landmarks, police were able to safely stop Beall.

"Officers advised that they smelled the odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from Beall, her speech was slow; her eyes were bloodshot and glossy," a Lakeland PD Facebook post said.

It seems Florida Woman got the attention she wanted. And luckily no one was hurt.

Jewel Shuping purposefully blinded herself with drain cleaner because she had yearned to be blind since she was six years old.

She suffers from Body Integrity Identity Disorder or BIID, which is usually associated with believing that one's limbs doesn't belong to one's self and manifests in a desire to lose that limb.

"I really feel this is the way I was supposed to be born, that I should have been blind from birth," the 30-year-old Shuping said.

Shuping's case is made even stranger by the fact that she worked with a psychiatrist to blind herself, presumably under the assumption that it was a treatment.

Even though she doesn't regret her decision, in fact now saying that she's never been happier, Shuping is trying to create awareness of BIID so that people don't take the route she did.

"Don't go blind the way I did. I know there is a need, but perhaps someday there will be treatment for it," Shuping said. "People with BIID get trains to run over their legs, freeze dry their legs or fall off cliffs to try to paralyze themselves.

"It's very dangerous. And they need professional help."
