When driving with multiple five-gallon buckets of latex paint on the backseat, you need to take extra care or ….
When I first heard that American journalist Michael Hastings (33) had died in a car accident last week my eyebrow went up. I knew by the strange obituaries and the scant news reporting that something was up but I didn’t write about it because I didn’t have enough info (OK fine, yes, you got me, it was really because I’m scared of spooks). I went on Twitter and I searched the net to see if anyone else thought his death was suspicious too. There was only a sprinkle of like minds, so I thought I would leave it well alone. But now, fellow conspiracy theorists, it seems his death in a fiery car crash is beyond suspicious. For those of you unfamiliar with his name, Hastings wrote an article in the Rolling Stones entitled the “The Runaway General” which basically lead to General Stanley A McChrystal’s embarrassing downfall. Evidently, just prior to his death he sent some disturbing emails to fellow colleagues telling them he was onto a “big story” but feared he was being investigated by the FBI and needed to “go off the radar” for awhile. Despite witnesses saying there was an explosion before his car hit a tree at high speed the LA police say there were no signs of foul play. Stay tuned Loons.
OK, I really shouldn’t laugh but a cinema in the US accidentally mixed up Madagascar 3 with Paranormal Activity 4 , resulting in pack of screaming snowflakes and their parents running for their lives. As luck would have it the most terrifying scene of the movie is right at the beginning, when a body flies straight at the camera. Well, that would have certainly made them spill their slushies and popcorn. Good luck getting those kiddies to sleep EVER!!!
Psst No word on how many horror fans were scarred watching Madagascar 3!!!!
Oh no, anyone heard of UK sword swallower Hannibal Hellmurto? Well, the dude accidentally ripped a 4 inch hole in his esophagus during a live performance. Oh for crying out loud (literally) . The stage performer was doing the old swallow an electric powered glass tube trick in Bradford when something went terribly wrong and well, you know the rest. Ever the trouper, Hellmurto complete his show before collapsing backstage. Don’t worry, he’s OK, just 5 weeks of being fed through a tube and he’s back performing.
Santa didn’t need his little helpers when he pulled a man from a burning car before it went kaboom. Yes, a Texas Santa (aka Brad Luddeke) was on his way to deliver toys to needy families when he witnessed a crash and rushed to help. He grabbed the man from the burning car just moments before it exploded and then directed traffic until help arrived. Santa then left the scene to continue delivering his presents.
OK, here’s the thing Mythbusters, when firing a cannonball at a hill in California during one of your experiments make sure there isn’t homes behind it. Hosts of the popular science show Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage were trying to work out if a cannon was effective at firing non cannonball objects when they decided to shoot a real cannonball first. Well the ball flew out of the cannon, over the friggin hill, down into the town of Dublin and straight through two houses before coming to rest inside a minivan. Ta-da.
Psst I would have loved to have seen their faces!!!
