China and Vietnam are currently involved in a serious dispute over contested South China Sea waters which Washington fears may escalate into full out war. Now call me crazy, but didn’t the Mayalsian Airlines disappear immediately after flying into Vietnamese airspace? I certainly hope the plane was not shot down by the Vietnamese and this on going search is just a ruse to avoid an international incident and another potential war. I still harp back to that oil rig guy who saw an explosion in the air around the time the plane went missing.

You go to McDonalds and order 7 McDoubles but when you get to your truck and discover you only have 6 what do you do? Well, most people would just roll their eyes and mutter dumbasses, but not our dude in Georgia. He confronted the staff who in turn gave him “attitude” so he dialled 911 on them. Oh yes he did. Hmm, unfortunately instead of the police reprimanding the staff for their inability to count, the cops threw him jail overnight for misusing the emergency number. Oh for crying out loud, the dude just wanted “to be treated like a person with respect.”
Oh for the love of god, not the friggin weed whacker! A 20 year hate feast between two neighbors in Hesse, Germany, got ugly when one of the elderly men attacked the other with a weed whacker (aka whipper snipper). It all started when one of the men decided to trim his lawn with the weed whacker, disturbing the other man. So pissed off, he grabbed a bucket of water and threw it over him. That’s when the weed whacking dude turned on him with his gardening tool, ripping him to shreds. The fight ended after the victims wife broke it up, but the man had to be flown to hospital via helicopter with multiple flesh wounds and severe damage to his knees. The weed whacking villain was arrested and may be charged with attempted homicide. No word on whether he finished trimming his grass!
Oh boy, seems the Islamic Solidarity Games, which is intended to be a happy fest among Muslim nations and designed to strengthen ties, has been canceled over a waterway tiff. It all started when Iran, who are hosting the sporting event this year, put “Persian Gulf” on the logo . It seems all the other Arab nations call the waterway the “Arabian Gulf” and were pretty pissed when its “common” name was used. Meanwhile Iran stands firm saying, tough, that is what it has historically been known. End result… “The federation regrettably declares the cancellation of the games in Iran because the organisers did not comply with the rules of games and the federation’s bylaws,” Well, at least they had 5 good solidarity years before this.
Psst Additional bummer, women were going to be allowed to compete this year.
