"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."



91-year-old Chilean woman has a calcified fetus inside of her.

For more than 60 years, Estela Meléndez though she just had an uncomfortable lump in her abdomen.

That was until the 91-year-old Chilean woman had an x-ray taken after a fall. Then CNN says, doctors discovered that what was actually in her abdomen was a fetus that had died in utero and then calcified over time.

"The doctor said I had a tumor and that they needed to operate on me," Meléndez told CNN. But when a second X-ray was ordered to confirm, doctors couldn't believe their eyes. The mass they were looking at turned out not to be a tumor, but a fetus...

For the elderly woman and her family, the finding has been quite a shock. Meléndez's husband of 74 years, Manuel González, died in January at age 91. González made a living as a fisherman and a boater in the coastal town. One of her few regrets, Meléndez says, is that she and her husband were unable to have children.



Here's what it looks like:



Since the fetus has calcified, the doctors said it poses no risks to Meléndez' health. And considering her advanced age, they said it might cause more harm to remove it.

According to Wikipedia, this is phenomenom is called a lithopedion

Lithopedia may occur from 14 weeks gestation to full term. It is not unusual for a stone baby to remain undiagnosed for decades, and it is often not until a patient is examined for other conditions or a proper examination is conducted that includes an X-ray, that a stone baby is found.

Fewer than 300 cases have been found in the past 400 years of medical documentation.

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.

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.

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.

Le-May described the moment to ITV, where he also submitted some other shots from the sequence:

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





video game news turkey investigating minecraft 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.

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.

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.”

Meanwhile in Florida…

A new theme park called "Machine Gun America" is opening December 20 in Orlando, because teaching kids how to use automatic weapons in the same area as Disney World is a great idea!

Dubbed "Orlando's first automatic adrenaline attraction" the park says it offers "an exciting way to experience firearms in a safe, secure, state-of-the-art environment designed to give anyone, regardless of their experience level, the thrill of a lifetime."

Guests cannot bring their own guns, you can't drink and anyone 13-years or older is allowed into the park.

The 13,000-square-foot facility has, according to the press release, 10 firing lanes, three simulators, a full-immersion video experience with surround sound, a gift shop, refreshment area and VIP Lounge and viewing area.

There are also a number themes you can choose from, including a zombie apocalypse and one called "Automatic Divas:"

Special Ops Red, White and Blue Feeling patriotic? Shoot military-grade firearms and feel like a national hero. Gangster Land A shooting experience perfect for guys and dolls looking for the thrill of some of the most infamous 'heaters' from the 1930s and 40s. - The Walking Dread Are you a survivor? Brave the zombie apocalypse with the help of fully automatic firearms. Don't forget, aim for the undead head. - 007 Channel your inner Bond and experience the thrill of being an elite special agent. Shoot legendary sophisticated guns in classic Bond style, tuxedo not required. - Western Shootout Fulfill your Wild West destiny with classic guns of outlaws and lawmen alike that are sure to hit the target for any cowboy. - Automatic Divas Let your bad side come out to play and take charge with polished pistols and powerful machine guns for the biggest and boldest rush of excitement. - Big Screen Legends Say hello to our little friends. Live out your favorite movie scenes with some of the most legendary guns in film history and become the hero of your own story. There has of course been some pushback over the opening of the park from groups like Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense, but MGA is still opening up as scheduled.

"It's romanticizing our freedom and our history," General Manager Bruce Nierenberg told Florida's WTSP. "I mean, it's part of American life. That's how we gained our freedom."

Cleveland-based dentist Gino DiGiannantonio (aka Dr. Gino) may not know it yet, but his strange haircut has a lot of people talking.

His photo in an ad has been viewed over 3 million times the past 17 hours, because… that hair.

Here are just a few of the comments:

“When the hairdresser asks if the haircut looks good and you just say yes.”

“This man’s got a 3 head.”

“In his defense, he does have nice teeth and the sign is for dentistry.”

“looks more like a kitten covered in afterbirth to me”

He’s also starting to get the meme treatment:

“It’s not delivery, it’s DiGiannanitonianonio.”

If you live in Allouez, Wisconsin, you may have recently noticed a giant snow monster roaming the city streets with a poodle.

No, no one spiked your eggnog. This is all too real.

A woman calling herself "Bumble" has been spotted walking around the neighborhood dressed as the Abominable Snow Monster of the North from "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" with her dog named Blizzard.

After images of the duo spread online, residents were all like WTF?

According to Fox 11:

When asked what she was doing walking the streets of Allouez, Bumble said she was visiting from Misfit Island.

She also said she is simply there to "bring joy, happiness."

But she forgot to mention "terror," and "confusion."

As part of their initiative to recruit women, ISIS has released a recipe for pancakes.

Earlier this year, the terrorist group established a finishing school called "Al-Zawra," to attract women to the cause who are "interested in explosive belt and suicide bombing more than a white dress or a castle or clothing or furniture."

The school provides training in areas like sewing, cooking, first aid and social media so women can assist their husbands in battle.

The pancakes post is a follow up to their "balls of date mush" recipe from earlier in November and is pretty basic.

The biggest atrocity: they suggest honey and not maple syrup.
