Best Costume Ever? Use Two iPads to Make It Look Like There's a Hole in Your Body
Here's an awesome last-minute Halloween costume . . . if you happen to have two iPad 2's lying around, or $1,000 to burn:
--A guy figured out that if you duct tape one to your chest, one to your back, and make them video chat with each other . . . it looks like there's a huge hole through your body.
--They have to be iPad 2's so that they have the FaceTime feature. And you also have to have wireless Internet access wherever you go.

Metallica Fans in India Started a Riot . . . When a Show Was Canceled at the Last Minute Over Security ConcernsMETALLICA was supposed to play their first gig ever in India on Friday, but it was canceled at the last minute due to "security concerns." Specifically, a barrier in front of the stage collapsed, and couldn't be repaired.
Around 25,000 fans were at the venue, but the band never took the stage.
The fans were NOT pleased . . . and "dozens" of them raided the stage and vandalized equipment. CHAOS ensued. The rioters trashed instruments and the sound system, and they threw bottles at the digital display screens.
Metallica initially planned on rescheduling the show for the next night, Saturday . . . but the concert organizers weren't able to get a permit in time.
Metallica issued this statement: Quote, "We [were] very excited and ready to play our first show ever in India . . .
"However, we were notified that there was a serious question as to whether the show could proceed with regard to the safety of the concert audience. Our first and foremost concern is always for the safety of you, the fans."
Metallica did finally give up their Indian virginity yesterday, at a separate, previously scheduled gig in a different city. (--That one happened in Bangalore. Friday's show was supposed to happen in Gurgaon.)
Four people from the promotion company have been arrested for fraud, cheating people and breach of trust. They also oversold the venue and didn't tell fans about the cancellation in a timely manner.

Steven Tyler's not looking too pretty after passing out in his shower on Tuesday in Paraguay and suffering a black eye, cuts to his face and the loss of two teeth.
His tour manager called the American embassy to find the best hospital and once there he was stitched up and had dental implants put in. The dentist, Dr. Maria Bastos, said he was "friendly and humble... He surprised me with his cheerfulness." Tyler blames the fall on dehydration caused by food poisoning. As a result, Aerosmith postponed their show that night, but made it up Wednesday. Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry was also proud of Tyler, saying, "He's amazing... a real trooper. [He] even played harp with his busted lip. My mind was blown. He put on one of his best shows ever." Yesterday (Thursday), Tyler spoke with Matt Laueron NBC's Today show saying, "Short of having my legs taken off, people are going to expect me on stage no matter what. I went out on stage and I wore my sunglasses for the first song. I took them off and the crowd roared." When asked if wasn't dehydration that caused him to pass out, rather than a drug relapse, Tyler said, "Being in the program, it's something we have to expect. I went public with my problems only to address them head on. You know, people thinking that is natural and normal, [it] still bothers me a little. It's something I have to deal with the rest of my life."

An unaired "Saturday Night Live" sketch on STEVE JOBS' death has surfaced online. It was supposed to air on the October 15th episode . . . but it didn't make the cut, for whatever reason. Probably because it's not all that funny, but nonetheless amusing.
--The skit mocks companies like Facebook and Netflix . . . by having their CEOs compare how awesome Steve Jobs is, to how poorly they run their companies. Obviously, the "SNL" cast is impersonating those CEOs.

Eight Simple Home Remedies for Your Dog
Â You've probably heard a million home remedies for YOURSELF.Â But what about home remedies for your DOG?
Â --Well, a book came out earlier this year called "Amazing Pet Cures", and some of them sound like they might actually work . . . for dogs AND cats.Â Here are the top eight.
Â #1.)Â Use Crisco to Get Burs Out of Their Fur.Â Wear work gloves so you don't get pricked, then work a dab of Crisco into the affected area, pry the burs loose, and use shampoo to get the Crisco off.
Â #2.)Â Use Vinegar to Stop Your Dog from Chewing on the Furniture.Â In a spray bottle, mix five ounces of white vinegar, five ounces of apple cider vinegar, and five ounces of water.Â Then spray it on whatever the dog likes to chew.
Â --Or if it's a specific spot, you can dab it with Bengay.Â Â #3.)Â To Kill Fleas, Bathe Your Dog with Dawn Dish Soap.Â It's non-toxic, but it penetrates the exoskeletons of the fleas and kills them.Â And according to the book, it works better than some prescription flea shampoos.
Â Â #4.)Â To Prevent Shedding, Use a Damp Paper Towel.Â Just run a sheet under the tap, then pet your dog with it to collect the loose hair.Â It won't actually STOP the shedding.Â But it'll help make sure the hair doesn't end up all over the house.
Â #5.)Â Use Trash Bags to Stop You Dog from Going to the Bathroom Inside.Â If it always happens in the same spot, just cut open a trash bag and put it there.Â Most dogs hate the feeling of plastic on their feet so much, they won't walk on it.
Â --Of course, there's still a chance it'll go right NEXT to the trash bag.
Â #6.)Â To Discourage Digging, Use Tabasco Sauce and Cayenne Pepper.Â If they keep digging up the yard, add four tablespoons of Tabasco and four tablespoons of cayenne pepper to one quart of water.Â Then sprinkle it on the grass.
Â #7.)Â To Make the Food Bowls Easier to Clean, Use PAM Cooking Spray.Â If you spray a little bit on the inside of the bowl before you fill it with wet food, the leftover pieces won't stick when they dry out.
Â --And as an added bonus, the vegetable oil helps make your dog's coat shinier.
Â #8.)Â For Older Dogs with Arthritis, Use White Rice in a Sock.Â Fill a sock halfway with uncooked white rice, tie a knot in the end, and heat it in the microwave for one minute.
Â --Then put the warm sock on your dog's joints twice a day for about 15 minutes.Â You can also do the same thing with a regular heating pad.Â But you don't have to worry about your dog RUINING rice in a sock.Â And it's also re-usable.
Â --Just make sure to use a CLEAN sock . . . or your microwave will smell DISGUSTING.
Indy 500 Winner Dan Wheldon Was Killed in a Horrible 15-Car Crash at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway
33-year-old Indy 500 winner DAN WHELDON was killed yesterday in a 15-car pile-up at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. On lap 13, two cars bumped and set off a chain reaction. Then Wheldon ramped off another car, hit the wall, and his car caught fire.
He was airlifted to a hospital, but two hours later, they announced he didn't make it. He'd won the Indy 500 twice: In May, and back in 2005. Three other drivers were hurt, and it's not surprising . . .
In the video, you can see THREE cars go completely airborne at one point. The rest of the race was cancelled.[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/IK7gICqz3aA" width="425" height="350" wmode="transparent" /]
The 49ers beat the Lions 25-19 yesterday, and immediately after the game, Niners coach JIM HARBAUGH and Lions coach JIM SCHWARTZ almost got into a FIGHT.
Harbaugh was jumping up and down celebrating, and he gave Schwartz a pretty hard handshake at mid-field, and sort of dismissed him. And he also allegedly shouted a swear word.
And Schwartz apparently took offense . . . because he ended up CHASING Harbaugh down the field, while the players and coaches kept them from going at it.
Harbaugh tried to accept some of the blame for it, but not really. He said, quote, "I was really revved up . . . That's on me. [The] handshake was too hard."

A Homemade Rocket with an On-Board Camera Reached an Altitude of 121,000 Feet
Here's some science trivia you probably didn't know: The official edge of space is 62 miles up . . . or about 327,000 feet.
And the first homemade rocket to reach it was launched by a team of amateurs in 2004 . . . reaching an official height of just over 380,000 feet.
I only mention it because an amateur named Derek Deville just launched a homemade rocket from the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. And it didn't go nearly that high. But the videos of it are great.
The rocket reached 121,000 feet, while an on-board camera got footage of the whole thing. And even though it's not OFFICIALLY outer space . . . it sure looks like it from 121,000 feet up.
A video on YouTube shows the launch from the ground, and from the camera strapped to the rocket. Then it shows the parachute deploy before it falls back to Earth. From start to finish, the whole thing took less than 15 minutes. Below is a highlight video. For the full 16 minute video CLICK HERE

Remember that Civil War-era photo of the guy who looked almost exactly like NICOLAS CAGE? Well, there's one of JOHN TRAVOLTA, too.
The likeness isn't nearly as perfect this time around, but there are enough similarities to make it amusing.
Here's an interesting coincidence: Like the Cage pic, the Travolta photo was for sale on eBay . . . but the listing DISAPPEARED for some reason.
The seller was only asking 50-grand for this one. The Cage photo was going for $1 million before it was taken down.
A cage fighting event which included children as young as eight has created a storm of controversy.
Footage of the bouts posted on the Internet have provoked an outcry with the British Cage Fighting Association describing parents who allow their children to take part as "morons."
The event was staged at the Greenlands New Labour Social Club in Preston.
At one point, one of the schoolboy fighters is seen to break down in tears.
Lancashire police say they will now investigate whether children were put at risk by taking part in the event.

In honor of the NFL season kicking off tonight, Forbes just released its annual list ranking the 32 NFL franchises by their value. And for the fifth straight year, Dallas came in first place.
--The Cowboys are worth $1.85 BILLION, up 2% from last year. They have a powerful brand that includes huge merchandise sales . . . and the new Cowboys Stadium has been pulling in hundreds of millions in revenue.
--Even in this recession, NFL teams basically PRINT MONEY. The average franchise is worth $1.04 BILLION, which is up 1.4% from last year.
--And after the player lockout this summer, the owners are set to get an even BIGGER piece of revenue . . . which means their teams are just going to keep going up in value.
--The full top 10 most valuable teams are: the Dallas Cowboys, the Washington Redskins, the New England Patriots, the New York Giants, the New York Jets, the Houston Texans, the Philadelphia Eagles, the Chicago Bears, the Green Bay Packers, and the Baltimore Ravens.
--The bottom 10 are: the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Oakland Raiders, the St. Louis Rams, the Buffalo Bills, the Minnesota Vikings, the Atlanta Falcons, the Detroit Lions, the Cincinnati Bengals, the Arizona Cardinals, and the San Diego Chargers. To see the full list, CLICK HERE

A New Beer Called "Chick Beer" Calls Itself the Only Beer Designed For Women (and afternoon disc jerkies!)
There's a new beer brand called CHICK BEER which calls itself the, quote, "only beer brand designed for women." (--Apparently it's never heard of Michelob Ultra, but whatever.)
--Women drink about 25% of all the beer sold in the U.S., so it makes sense to market beer to them. Chick is a light beer . . . obviously . . . that's low carb . . . obviously . . . and a decently-low 97 calories in a 12-ounce bottle . . . obviously.
--It's also less carbonated to lead to less BURPING. And it comes in hot pink packaging.
--It's made in Maryland and, for now, it doesn't appear to be available anywhere BUT Maryland . . . but we'd assume the manufacturers are working on taking their beer for broads broader.

--But for some reason, the Gators sideline FLIPPED OUT. Maybe because they were losing 30-to-6. And the ref called ANOTHER personal foul when they came onto the field and confronted him.
--A Husky fan was filming the whole thing, and she didn't capture all of what happened next. Apparently, someone threw a bottle of water on the ref, and a fight started. But it's unclear who threw the first punch.
--But she DID film the aftermath . . . where a player ran the ref over like a FREIGHT TRAIN, and started a brawl. An assistant coach for the Husky's tried to break it up, and got injured along with the ref.
--Now the Gators have been banned from playing on their home field, and suspended. And the cops are making arrests.

Shannon Tweed and Gene Simmons will formalize their 28-year relationship on October 1st at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills, California at 5:30 p.m.
In July, on the finale of the sixth season of the Simmons reality show, Family Jewels, he got down on one knee in Belize and proposed, which caused Shannon to gasp. While viewers won't see her answer until season seven premieres on October 4th, she'll already be a married woman by then.
The invitation is from the couple's children, Nick and Sophie, who also designed it. Nick drew a family picture and Sophie wrote the message, which says, "Classy Cocktail Attire Requested, although we know some Rockstar attire will be worn... There will no longer be a Team Tweed or a Team Simmons, but instead a Team Tweed-Simmons."
This is the first marriage for both. Simmons is 62 and claims to have slept with more than 2,000 women, and Shannon, a former Playboy Playmate and onetime girlfriend of the magazine's publisher, Hugh Hefner, is 54. Here is the official invite:

This cop picked a BAD spot to have OUTDOOR SEX while he was on duty.
In Santa Fe, New Mexico, the county sheriff's office had set up a surveillance camera to catch vandals. Clearly, one state police officer didn't know where the camera was.
--Because the camera recently had a PERFECT VIEW of him having outdoor sex with a woman on the hood of a Honda . . . while he was still in uniform. And he may have been on duty.
--Sadly, there aren't many other details available like the officer's name, the woman's name, what action could be taken against him . . . or whether or not that's a small Chihuahua watching them get-it-on.
Earlier this month, 86-year-old Leroy Luetscher of Green Valley, Arizona was working in the yard. He was using a small pair of gardening shears to prune some bushes, and he dropped them. They landed on the ground, handles pointing up. When Leroy reached down to pick them up, he fell face-first. One of the handles went THROUGH HIS EYE SOCKET . . . behind his nose . . . and ended up mostly down his throat. The other side of the handle was still sticking out of his eye socket.
He was rushed to University Medical Center in Tucson. Surgeons there somehow managed to remove the shears, completely rebuild his eye area, AND save his vision. HERE'S THE PHOTO IN ALL IT'S GNARLY SPLENDOR:
--It's been about four weeks since then, and Leroy still has bruising and some minor damage . . . but he can see out of the eye.

A lot of places still need help with the flooding from Hurricane Irene. Let's just hope the National Guard units they deploy have a little more sense than the ones in Manville, New Jersey. There's a YouTube video that shows two National Guard trucks there, full of guys, driving straight into deep floodwater. It goes right up to the roof of the trucks. First one truck drives in, then another. And at first it works . . . sort of. The guy filming says, "How's that possible?" And his buddy responds, "It's the Army, bro." Only, it isn't possible: Both trucks end up floating, and the men inside have to swim out. So the guy filming says, "Are you guys that stupid?" It's a good question.

In the new issue of "ESPN The Magazine", there's an article titled "What If Michael Vick Were White?"
The whole point the author is trying to make in this piece is that it's IMPOSSIBLE to imagine Vick as a white guy. Flipping his race would change too many variables. He simply wouldn't be Michael Vick anymore. So the attempt itself is foolish.
So many people have tried to do it anyway . . . especially when Vick was arrested for dogfighting, and the question came up again and again: Would Vick have received such a harsh sentence if he were white?
Anyway . . . The MORONS at "ESPN the Magazine" obviously didn't get the point . . . because they ran a computer-generated image with the story of MICHAEL VICK AS A WHITE GUY. You can see the photo below, along with the article, BY CLICKING HERE.)

The most powerful earthquake in 67 years rattled the East Coast yesterday afternoon, shaking buildings and rattling nerves from North Carolina as far north as Ottawa, Canada.
There were no reported deaths or serious injuries, although there was significant damage in the area. See the photo below:
There was a triple play at a MINOR league game between the Nashville Sounds and Omaha Storm Chasers on Saturday. And this one was crazy.
With runners on first and second, the batter hit a fly ball to center that bounced off the center fielder's glove. And the runners took off because they thought he dropped it.
But the ball hadn't hit the ground, and after it bounced off his glove, It bounced off his HEAD . . . went up in the air . . . and he CAUGHT it. Then he threw the ball back in, and they doubled-off the runners at first and second.

A Guy here in Northern California Has Taken His Dog Skydiving 64 Times
The "Sacramento Bee" did a story this week on a former skydiving instructor in Northern California who's taken his dog Otis on 64 tandem jumps.
You could probably make the case that it's animal cruelty, but apparently the 10-year-old pug ENJOYS it.Â They posted a video of one of the jumps online, and he looks completely calm.Â He even has his own skydiving goggles. Check out the full story by clicking on THIS LINK
I've never taken my own pug sky-diving, but just for the hell of it, here's his picture. His name is Denny:
DONALD TRUMP bought himself his very own 757 jet and customized it to well beyond the definition of decadence.
This thing has a passenger area that seats 43 people. Each seat has its own "audio-visual system", and all the fixtures . . . right down to the seat belt buckles . . . are gold-plated.
There's a separate dining area, a main lounge, a guest area (slash) bedroom and a MASTER bedroom adorned with, quote, "yards and yards of elegant gold silk." There's also a master BATHROOM, complete with a shower.
There's a "VIP" area . . . which I guess means that Trump will sometimes fly people who are beneath him . . . and from whom he might feel the need to separate himself. (???)
There are also three totally tricked-out home theater systems.
As for the video, Trump doesn't appear in it himself. Maybe he thought that if he was absent from it, he could create the illusion that he's NOT bragging about how rich he is. Instead, it's hosted by AMANDA MILLER, his secretary on "Celebrity Apprentice".

The Japanese have their own pro wrestling circuit, just like the WWE. And since the Japanese always take things to INSANE levels, this might not surprise you.
A wrestler named Kenny Omega recently faced off with an opponent named Hakura . . . who also happens to be a NINE-YEAR-OLD GIRL.
The video is online, and she did the same moves you'd see a normal wrestler do . . . like jumping off the top rope, and having her head slammed into a turnbuckle. She ended up losing the match, but she got one final slap in before it was over.

The Oakland Raiders have picked their new cheerleading squad for the 2011-2012 NFL season, and one of their new ladies is . . . a GRANDMA. A 37-year-old grandma, but still, a grandma.

She's a mother of three, a grandmother of one, and she's been dancing since she was eight. --She says it's always been her dream to be an NFL cheerleader, and she's tried out five times in the past six years . . . but always got cut. --There were 232 women at the auditions, and Susie was one of 41 women picked to be on the Raiderettes. --The Raiderettes say she's the only grandma cheerleader in the NFL. But she's not the oldest cheerleader . . . the Cincinnati Bengals have a 42-year-old named Laura Vikmanis. Here's a couple of pics of Susie:

Justin Timberlake was promoting the movie "Friends with Benefits" on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" last night . . . so he and Jimmy did another one of their "History of Rap" jams. And it was just as white as the first one.

It sucks when you're trying to enjoy a concert and some jackasses start fighting in the crowd. It's annoying, it's distracting, and it can take the fun out of the show. Unfortunately, a lot of time nobody does anything about it.
Well, DAVE GROHL did something about it the other night . . . and he went all out.
Someone started brawling while the FOO FIGHTERS were performing "Skin and Bones" in London on Monday night. When Dave saw the commotion, he stopped the band . . . and called the guy out. here's a link to the video, but WARNING: LOTS OF UNCENSORED PROFANITY...18 AND OVER ONLY! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sl9GMOTaqtc

Hugh Hefner lost a fiance, but he's gained two girlfriends.

This is amazing: Someone uploaded a video to YouTube that shows a tribe from New Guinea encountering white men for the first time . . . and they're absolutely terrified. According to the video, it was shot in 1976.
The tribe is so suspicious of them, they actually try to wipe the white off of one guy's skin. Then he shows them a box of matches, and they bring him to their village, where the women seem even MORE suspicious.
The best parts are when he shows them more equipment, like a spoon and a machete. But they're most shocked by his little handheld mirror.
The end of the video is great too, because the background music cuts out, and it shows one of the tribesmen listening to his own voice on a handheld tape recorder. The whole thing is 15 minutes long, but it's worth it.

TMZ posted some pictures yesterday of RYAN DUNN'S Porsche 911 GT3.Â Or what USED TO BE Ryan's Porsche.Â It's really just a heap of mangled and burned-out parts now.
Meanwhile, "Jackass" co-star JASON "WEE MAN" ACUNA got Ryan's face tattooed on his leg.Â I've got pictures of that, too.
KIM KARDASHIAN swears she's done nothing to enhance her backside.Â And we have no reason NOT to believe her.Â Still . . . look at that freakin' thing.Â You can see why she's still fighting those rumors.
Kim's sister KHLOE tried to dispel those rumors once and for all by posting a photo of Kim, in her doctor's office, standing next to an X-RAY OF HER OWN ASS.Â (???) Â
And she included the following caption . . . quote, "Hey dolls.Â The PROOF is in the X-ray.Â Kim's ass is 100% real!!!"
If you're one of the few guys who still wonders what would be so great about being GEORGE CLOONEY, I offer you some bikini photos of ELISABETTA CANALIS.

Apparantly, he dumped her recently.

--It's not clear if there's more to come, but DirecTV is promoting it like there is. On the official website, it even lists the back stories of the characters.
--It says, quote, "Both grew up together as orphans in a home for wayward boys. Both overcame the odds to become huge sports stars. Now both are the only hope for the rugged streets they once again call home."
--Odds are, DirecTV is just planning to run mini-episodes leading up to the football season . . . if there is one.

I spoke with Matt Cameron on the phone for a few minutes. We had a nice chat, talked about growing up in San Diego, balancing drumming for two major bands, and all things Soundgarden with two shows coming up: July 20th at Harvey's Lake Tahoe Outdoor Amphitheater and July 21st at the Bill Grahm Civic auditorium in San Francisco. The interview is about 9 minutes long, to hear it click on the link below:
Occasionally when you're out in public you see something worthy of taking out the camera phone and snapping a photo or taking a video; but as cool as your video of a double rainbow or photo of a couple kissing in the midst of a riot is, it's got nothing on this random moment captured on Sunday.

Jackass movie star Ryan Dunn is dead at the age of 34, killed in a fatal car crash in Pennsylvania early Monday morning.
Hours before the crash, Dunn posted a photo to Twitter, by way of his Tumblr blog, that depicted him drinking with friends.
Dunn and an unidentified third party were both killed in the crash. TMZ is reporting that Dunn was the driver of the car and that speed may have been a factor. The West Goshen Township Police Department says officers found Dunn's 2007 Porsche 911 GT3Â "off the road and in the woods."
Here's what was left of the car:
There have been a lot of great beer ads over the years. But the Hahn Brewery in Australia released a new one on YouTube that's been dubbed the "Most Epic Beer Commercial Ever".
According to the ad, Hahn beer is brewed by having bodybuilders crush the hops with hammers. Then they show the hops footage from old kung-fu movies, and the beer gets poured over a mountain of trophies before it's ready to drink.
There's also a DeLorean with monster truck wheels that powers the conveyor belt. And the ad features the theme song from the TV show "Knight Rider".

Presenting the geekiest beachwear ever: the solar-powered swimsuit.
The Solar Bikini, designed by Andrew Schneider of Brooklyn, uses the sun to charge iPods, iPhones, and any other gadgets with a USB connector.
The suit uses conductive thread and thin photo- panels, creating a sort of chain-mail fabric that gives the bikini a medieval armor-meets-21st century look. The solar power absorbed by the panels charges any gadget that can be plugged into the suit's USB ports, sewn right into the fabric.
Schneider is in the process of creating a men's swimsuit using the same technology to chill beers.
You can even swim in the Solar Bikini, with one crucial caveatâ¦you just need to be dry before hooking up your gadgets. (You're not even looking at the swim suit, are you?)

The tornadoes that hit the U.S. in the past couple months have led to so many tragic stories, it's almost hard to keep track. This one's a reminder that sometimes amazing things can happen in the face of disaster.
--Back on April 27th, a tornado hit Birmingham, Alabama. A dog named Mason, who's a terrier mix, was outdoors when it hit . . . and he was BLOWN AWAY in the storm.
--His owners searched for him everywhere but couldn't find him. Their house was destroyed in the storm as well. (--They asked for their names not to be released.)
--Twenty-three days later, they went back to look through the debris of their house . . . and against all odds, Mason SHOWED UP. He had two broken legs, but had managed to figure out his way home . . . and dragged himself there.
--He had surgery earlier this week to fix his legs and should be able to walk properly again in about six weeks. To see the video just click on this link:

Overall, you get a score between one and five. The quiz only takes about two minutes and it's definitely worth your time.

Steven Tyler says Joe Perry joined him for a little drug party three years ago. He says they were working on a new album in 2008 when they snorted prescription pills, which left Perry unable to play the guitar and Tyler unable to sing.
Tyler says, "It was just like 30 years before. I whipped out mine, he whipped out his, and we got high together again. I say to Joe, 'Wow, man, how you been, it's been, what, 17 years since we got high together?'"
In other Tyler news, he will release his first solo single in the U.S. on May 10th. Tyler says he can hear "It Feels So Good" "coming out of people's cars this summer." The video, which he shot on Tuesday in L.A., will premiere on American Idol. Tyler wrote the song with Marti Frederiksen, who has also been working on material for a new Aerosmith album.

A Baseball Player Tried to Make a Catch Ten Feet Short of the Wall . . . But the Ball Bounced Off His Glove and Went Over for a Home Run.
Detroit Tigers outfielder RYAN RABURN has been having defensive issues all season. But this is something special... In Tuesday's game against the Seattle Mariners, Raburn tried to make a somewhat routine catch at the warning track in left field, but the ball bounced off his glove and went over the fence for a homerun. This type of play isn't really that rare, and it happened most notably in 1993 when a ball bounced off JOSE CANSECO'S HEAD.
--But this one was different, because if Raburn hadn't touched it, the ball would have landed about ten feet short of the wall.

Then he couldn't get the ballOUT of the woods, and by the time it was all over, he'd set a new PGA record for most strokes on a par four.

Tunes For The Troops is a non-profit organization that sends CD's and DVD's to our deserving troops...I think that's totally awesome but check out the guy on the bottom left, holding a James Taylor CD from 1971 called "Sweet Baby James"...pretty freakin'funny!
The BBC ran a documentary series earlier this year called "Human Planet", and it just started airing on the Discovery channel this past Sunday.
--Now, just in time for the weekend, someone posted a parody of it on YouTube that examines the mating habits of "The Douche." According to the parody, the Douche pops his collar, wears sunglasses in the club, and tries to pick up chicks.
--He has to get girls drunk in order to mate with them, but inevitably fails, and resorts to beating up other guys to repair his self-esteem.

Imagine hitting your golf ball into a water hazard, walking to the edge of the water, and seeing a ten-foot SHARK swimming around. Well, it's possible at the Carbrook Golf Club in Queensland, Australia, which features a lake filled with 30 bull sharks.
--Club officials think the sharks washed into the lake during a flood in the early 90's, and there's a video on YouTube of one shark swimming right up to the edge of the shore.

An airline passenger with an empty seat next to him decided to point his camera out the window and record a remarkable time-lapse video of the entire 11-hour flight from San Francisco to Paris. The video is amazing in itself, but the photographer also happened to capture a spectacular shot of the northern lights in the sky over the Atlantic.

Vice President Biden was caught napping or in deep thought while President Obama spoke to the nation yesterday about his plan to cut the deficit. And Biden apparently wasn't alone -- a woman seated directly behind the vice president also appeared to snooze or at least close her eyes.

The video is from the New Orleans International Airport, and it shows a TSA agent giving a full pat down to a SIX-YEAR-OLD GIRL.
I mean . . . it's a female agent doing the pat down, and while she does everything she can to keep it professional, the way she's touching the girl would get her ARRESTED in any other context.
Plus, the little girl makes it clear at the beginning that she doesn't want to participate.

A lot of the videos of the tsunami that hit Japan a month ago have been shocking, but there's a new one on YouTube that's even crazier because it actually shows villagers in Iwaki City screaming while they watch people try to outrun it ON FOOT.
--It looks like an elderly woman and the woman with her didn't make it: It shows them at the bottom on the hill when the wave gets there, then everyone starts screaming, and the camera moves away. When the camera moves back, they're gone.
--The entire second half of the one minute video is shaky chaos, because the guy with the camera is running for his life. What's amazing is how fast the area below the hill is completely inundated with deep water, cars, and buses.

A Jumbo Jet Clipped a Smaller Plane on the Runway at JFK Airport and Spun It Almost 90 Degrees...
An Air France Airbus A380 was taxiing on the runway at JFK Airport in New York on Monday night, and clipped a much smaller Comair jet.
The Airbus is the largest commercial passenger jet in the world, and when its left wing caught the tail of the Comair plane, it spun the entire plane almost 90 degrees in less than two seconds.
Luckily, none of the 62 passengers on board the smaller jet were hurt. But even though the video doesn't have sound, you can tell the people on the plane must have felt a pretty big jolt.

This weekend's "Saturday Night Live" featured a Digital Short called "HELEN MIRREN'S Magical Bosom," and it was what it sounds like: A sketch about Helen Mirren's rack. (--Helen was the host.)
--In the skit, cast member Nasim Pedrad asks Helen if she can touch Helen's breasts, and when she does, she's transported to a "place that's much better than Heaven . . . in Helen Mirren's (boobs)."
--DAVE GROHL of the FOO FIGHTERS made a cameo, since he was this week's musical guest. The skit ended with Helen Mirren getting motorboated by KRISTEN WIIG.

Imagine cleaning out a garage and finding something so amazing that it was like winning the lottery. It happened to a Kansas businessman.
Working as an auctioneer for the last 40 years, Bill Fair said he has come across some weird stuff. "A skull, body parts," he said. But Fair said even he wasn't prepared for what he found recently.
What Fair found was a classic 66 Shelby Mustang one of only 1,100 made, and sold from Carroll Shelby's personal carÂ lot. The fastback was sitting in the middle of a huge pile of junk in a storage unit. It has been there 26 years and was in near perfect condition. "In the middle of all the trash was a car," he said.
Fair didn't really know what his company had just found. A little research showed that similar carsÂ have sold for upwards of $2 million. To read more and see a video on this story, FOLLOW THIS LINK:
Some guy fell asleep at a Yankees game the other day, so the guy sitting behind him started stacking plastic beer cups on his head. When he got three stacked up, the people around him started cheering. Then he tried for four but couldn't do it.

Here's why you're supposed to stay at least three seconds behind the car in front of you when you're driving:
--A woman was making a video WHILE she was on the highway, when the car in front of her ran over a two-by-four . . . kicked it up off the road and into the air . . . where it smashed through her windshield like a spear.
--According to the YouTube video, the driver is fine, and she was filming the road because the truck next to her was driving aggressively.

A Guy Was Arrested For Trying To Abduct a College Student . . . And He Looks Just Like Christopher Walken...
I'm sure that the victim in this story is traumatized from nearly being abducted . . . so I hope her friends give it another three days before they start saying, "You know what your kidnapping needed? More cowbell."
--Last Monday, he tried to lure the student into his car, and when she said no, he grabbed her and tried to pull her in....He's been arrested for attempting to entice an adult into a vehicle.Â Here's the real deal by the way:
The baseball season may only be a few days old, but the Cleveland Indians already have a play that will undoubtedly be included on the team's 2011 highlight reel under their belt.
In the fourth inning yesterday against the Chicago White Sox, the Indians pulled off the major league's first triple play of the season when first baseman Carlos Santana, who normally plays catcher, made a diving catch of Alexi Ramirez's bunt with two Sox's players on the base paths. Santana then threw to first to double up A.J. Pierzynski. Orlando Cabrera, who received the throw at first, threw to shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera to nail Carlo Quentin at second, sealing the triple play.
The Indians took the game 7-1 for their first win of the season.

Steven Tyler's star continues to rise apart from Aerosmith. Last night the American Idol judge put in a surprise performance live with one-time-Idol winner-turned-country star Carrie Underwood at the ACM Awards in Las Vegas.
Tyler and his scarf-draped mic stand joined Underwood midway through her "Undo It" and then the duo traded verses --- and a near kiss -- on the Aerosmith classic "Walk This Way."

One of the most famous monster trucks in the history of the sport is called GRAVE DIGGER, and the driver's name is Dennis Anderson. But at Monster Jam 2011 in Las Vegas over the weekend, it was Dennis's son Ryan who stole the show.
Driving a truck named SON-UVA DIGGER, Ryan successfully landed a BACKFLIP. Apparently it's not the first backflip ever landed in a monster truck, but it's still impressive. And it looks like it shouldn't even be possible.
