Flights are delayed all the time, and you don’t usually know exactly what caused the delay, so you just kind of roll with it.
But on Wednesday, easyJet flight EZY835 from London Gatwick to Belfast was about 90 minutes late after a “verbal disagreement” took place between two crew members. The plane had to return to its gate, the crew members in question were replaced and, for a while, there was widespread confusion among the people on board.
Thankfully one of those passengers — TV Presenter Dan Lobb, in utter disbelief — tweeted the whole thing out for our viewing pleasure.
Have you ever been at the beach and thought, “I don’t want my skin to fry, but I also want to smell like fried chicken?”
If so, KFC's announcement of SPF-30 sunscreen lotion that'll have you smelling like finger lickin' good chicken will please you to no end.
This year’s Rio Olympics is the 28th Summer Olympic games, and the event has been held in 19 different countries. Those countries often think hosting will pay off due to the influx of spectators and tourists coming to see the games.
However, it turns out that the cost for hosting the games rarely pays off, and that it’s, in fact, often a waste of money, and then what are they left with?
Huge venues that are often abandoned, left unused the minute the games are complete.
As these pictures show, Rio could look very different in the near future.

Let’s say you’ve been thinking about joining a gym, and while you’re driving to work in the morning, you pass a billboard.
What would most effectively get your attention?
That's the debate right now in Sawley, Derbyshire, where a facility called Fit4Less was asked in April to take down this first attempt at "lighthearted" advertising.
At the time, local anti-bullying charity Combat Bullying slammed the poster for encouraging bullying.
Billboards and advertisements have one job — to get your attention and to hopefully get you to buy a product or change your behavior.
But sometimes they catch your attention for a completely different reason, and that’s because they’re placed in an unfortunate position for the advertisers, but fortunate for those of us who need a laugh.
I hope so.
Twelve steps forward…
…one step back.

If you’ve ever suffered the agony of menstrual cramps and tried traditional methods to relieve the pain with no luck, good news!
Weed tampons are finally here!
A company called Fiora recently created what they call “cannabis vaginal suppositories” as a way to help women deal with the pain of period cramps, and they’re now available to the pubic public.
Perhaps I’m not the best person to talk about diet, seeing as I consider cutting carbs being when I slice a bagel to put on the almond butter, but I do know that as a kid the term “cheat day” would refer to a test and not to food.
But things are different today, and while childhood obesity is a problem, so are unhealthy views about food and body image.
That's why when Ilona Burton tweeted this photo of children's clothing by New Look Fashion that features a slice of pizza with the text "Cheat Day" on it, the post took off and went massively viral.
