The Qatar Airways flight they were travelling on was forced to make an emergency landing in India after she started to repeatedly hit her husband following the discovery.

According to the Hindustan Times, the Iranian woman had managed to unlock her partner's smartphone by pressing it against his hand while he slept.
...
Chennai's New Indian Express reported that the airport's director, G Chandramouli, said the woman was drunk and was held at the airport until she sobered up before the family were allowed back on a plane.
Yeah, drunk. Dexterous and resourceful, then suddenly drunk to hit him. This is totally about the woman's poor judgement and bad airplane etiquette.

I don’t discover the dongs, they discover me.

The turd Animoji is a bit of a disappointment. Not expressive like the chicken or monkey.

Does Deadspin have a file of unintentional dongs?

the first one, the woman was not killed by her husband, but by a hunter out after sundown. Wear orange, even if you think you're safe. We used to paint our horses orange and even the dog wore a vest.

I heard about this story. It doesn’t add up.

Guy takes a shot at a deer, in the dark, at 200 yards, with a pistol?

Edit: Las Vegas shooter was 360 yards.

Or you could, as a nation, stop shooting at literally anything and everything that moves. Probably while drinking.

I hope they hit him with murder charges, though I don't know if New York has the death penalty. He had* the right to bear arms. He's also responsible for the results.

*he won't have the right any longer. Felons are generally forbidden to own guns. Details depend on state laws.

If facebook has one redeeming quality, it is the posts of Lt. Cotton of the Bangor Police Department. See the original here:

Not ridiculous, but nice. Glad to see it, and I would be a shopper if in my area. A lot of food goes wasted. I personally don't even look at the dates on the food when shopping or when deciding what to throw out. To do that, I think how long has it been since I last ate it, does it look ok, and MAYBE the smell test. The dates are completely meaningless to me.

Because of all the energy used to mine them, it turns out bitcoin is bad for the environment.

Some days the 'Great Filter' concept makes a lot of sense.

Oils go rancid sometimes even before the best before date. Im curious why food wouldnt sell before this date? Rancid oils are a carcinogen and can cause serious long term health problems. Things like olive oil, nuts, whole wheat etc. spoil in about 6 months give or take a few. But people tend to keep using them not realizing they spoil.
You arent special. You dont have value just because you were born. You are a net drain on the planet. Respect must be earned & your value must be proven. Endangered species are special, & their survival should take priority over your comfort.

Injury and death unquestionably occurs here, so I’m spoiler-blocking it, but none of it is really visible.
