There is no better feeling for a baseball player than hitting a game-winning home run. So Tennessee slugger Jameson Painter was on cloud nine when his eighth inning round-tripper put his Chuckey-Doak High baseball team in the lead for good in their game against Jonesboro University High.
However, when the senior got to the parking lot to drive himself home after the game he went from the thrill of victory to the agony of having to deal with a broken windshield. And Painter only had himself to blame for the shattered glass, as it was his game-winning moonshot that did the damage.
Twitter is the greatest thing to happen to Jose Canseco since steroids. The former Bash Brother has over 440,000 followers on the micro blogging site and is known for his off-beat quasi-coherent Tweeting style.
His most recent newsworthy barrage of Tweets relate to the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.
As we get closer to the 2012 Presidential election, more and more people are using social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter to express their political views. According to a survey from the Pew Internet & American Life Project, these views are sometimes a little too surprising to the poster’s web friends.
Between 10 and 18 tornadoes ripped through the Dallas area on Tuesday. Homes were destroyed, vehicles were tossed around like rag dolls and residents frantically sought shelter. And many folks captured the wreckage on their video cameras and phones.
Even stacked together in a jar, all those pennies you have are fairly worthless. However, they may soon become collectors’ items.
Canada, our neighbor to the North, has just eliminated the penny in their latest federal budget, following the example of nations like Australia and New Zealand. The Canadian national mint will stop producing the one-cent coin over the next six months, and businesses have been asked to return pennies to be melted down.
We thought it was a joke too, but apparently the Great White North is serious:
‘The Lorax‘ movie has brought some well-deserved attention to the late Dr. Seuss‘ furry orange tree protector.
But not all of this attention has been of a positive nature. In fact, some heartless thieves have stolen a 300-pound statue of the Lorax from Theodor Seuss Geisel’s San Diego estate where his 90-year-old widow, Audrey Geisel, still resides.
James Cameron is king of the deep blue sea. Using a specially designed one-man submarine dubbed the “Deepsea Challenger,” the ‘Titanic’ and ‘Avatar’ director reached the floor of the Pacific Ocean’s Mariana Trench, the deepest part of the world’s oceans. He is now the first solo explorer to ever do so.
It’s one thing when Gwyneth Paltrow names her child Apple, or M.I.A names her’s Ikhyd. Those celebrities have the resources to deal with the problems that can arise when a child is given an odd name. However, experts are increasingly seeing ‘naming regret” among normal folks who give their babies not so normal names.
Growing up, Johnny Depp was so obsessed with Barnabas Collins, the lead character from the Gothic soap opera ‘Dark Shadows,’ that he later admitted he wanted to be him.
Now Depp gets to play Collins, a vampire who was buried alive in 1752 and then mistakenly dug up in 1972, in Tim Burton’s film adaptation of the legendary cult series. (Depp playing a fish-out-of-water weirdo? Say it ain’t so!)
