Yankees fan caught sleeping by ESPN cameras suing for $10 million because of this video

July 8, 2014 | No comments

Back in April, a New York Yankees fan was caught by the cameras snoozing in the stands during a game against the Red Sox…

Sleepy though he may have been, the man is wide awake now and he’s either fuming mad or ambitiously opportunistic… He’s suing ESPN and Major League Baseball for $10 million because of that footage, claiming it contains an “avalanche of disparaging words” that went out to millions of viewers.

He even claims the announcers called him “a fatty cow that needs two seats at all times and represents a symbol of failure” and that he is “a confused individual that neither understands nor knows anything about history and the meaning of rivalry between Red Sox and New York Yankees.” These remarks certainly are surprising, if true, though the most “vituperative” comments, as he calls them, aren’t in the video posted by MLB to their YouTube channel, of course.

Ironically, whether the suit is legit or not, the man is certainly being mocked more now than he was before.

Funny $10 Kickstarter for potato salad has raised thousands, but comes with a very important risk…

July 7, 2014 | No comments

When Zack Brown opened his Kickstarter for potato salad, he couldn’t have imagined it would get as big as it has.

Zack set a goal of just $10 for his project, which had a simple purpose:

Basically I’m just making potato salad. I haven’t decided what kind yet.

Potato Salad Kickstarter

With that insanely simple premise, he quickly raised about $100.

Zack’s bewildering project gained a little more steam four days ago when it was posted to a subreddit dedicated to crappy Kickstarters. From there, the project has spiraled out of control, with Zack now having raised thousands of dollars to make what will have to be an epic potato salad.

The more incentives Zack comes up with, the more people snatch them up.

After hitting his initial $10 goal, Zack added a few stretch goals…

This looks like the aftermath of a horrific plane crash…but it’s not

July 7, 2014 | No comments

As they were rafting down the Clark Fork River in Montana on Friday, David Shearer and his friends came upon what at first looks like an absolutely terrible plane crash…

Planes along the banks of the Clark Fork River - 01

But then you notice that the fuselages aren’t nearly as broken up as you’d expect them to be. … And why are there three planes crashed together? … And where are the passengers…or the wings?

Quickly enough you realize this isn’t a plane crash, after all. Planes did crash, I suppose, but they didn’t fall from the sky, they came from the top of the embankment along the river where a passing train carrying several fuselages derailed on Thursday…

Regardless of what they may have done wrong, kicking fellow motorists’ cars rarely works out well, especially when you’re simultaneously riding a motorcycle…

Fortunately, the Brazilian motorcyclist appears to have walked away with no serious injuries, except to his ego.

Trucker turns the tables in a traffic stop, rips into cop for speeding while using a cell phone

June 30, 2014 | 3 comments

When truck driver Brian Miner was saw an officer with the Illinois State Police speed past him on wet pavement while using his cell phone, he blasted his horn to get the officer’s attention and tell him to slow down. The officer responded by pulling Miner over for improper use of his horn, which gave Miner a chance to tell the officer exactly what he thought of his driving.

After several minutes of defending his obvious violations, the officer took Miner’s paperwork, indicating that he’d be issuing a citation. Then, the bizarre traffic stop took a surprising turn when the officer returned to Miner’s truck…
