Man Buttdials Former Employee… While Plotting To Kill Him
You may want to check you are not accidentally calling the person you want dead while you are hiring someone to do it… just saying, they might hear you and call the police. That’s what happened to a Arkansas man who says Larry Barnett, his 68-year-old former boss, accidentally called him last week … and when he heard Barnett discussing the plan to have him killed, he contacted police, KAIT-8 reports. Among the comments Barnett allegedly made to a third man: “I don’t care if you have to burn his house to the ground with him in it. I don’t care what you have to do, make it look like an accident.”
Barnett also allegedly gave the third man directions to the intended victim’s house; the accidental call went on for an hour and a half. During it, Barnett allegedly offered $5,000 up front and more when the job was complete, revealing that he tried to use someone else first but “they couldn’t get the job done.” The used car dealership owner also explained his alleged motive, Fox 19 reports: “I owe the little son of a [bleep] a bunch of money and if he’s gone, I don’t have to pay for it.” Police went to the intended victim’s home; it had been burglarized and someone had tampered with the gas stove. Barnett was arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit murder.
Woman Falls On Subway Tracks, Breaks Something (video)
Meet the most oblivious woman in the world.
The security cam at a subway station caught a woman walking right into the train tracks ignoring the basics in human survival like ‘watch where you are walking’.
Anyway, it’s nice to see people rally to help her out but Charles Darwin wouldn’t have been pleased.
This Is Why Kurt Cobain Shot Himself…
Everyday I lose a little extra faith in the future of humanity, today it comes in the form of a Virginia Tech student who wrote Nirvana asking them to record a message to university students… apparently not knowing Kurt Cobain is dead or that he’s a man.
She even sent a script for them to read:
“What’s up, Virginia Tech? This is Nirvana! Just wanted to wish you guys a Happy Homecoming Week and good luck at the game this Saturday. LETS [sic] GO HOKIES!”
The student, who is apparently running for homecoming court, also said they’d be happy to include links to Nirvana’s Facebook and Twitter accounts:
“It presents great publicity for them, as well as Virginia Tech loves Nirvana, we’d love to have her in our video.”
Nirvana’s former label, Sub Pop Records, decided to have a little fun with this and sent:
Really, some people should just stay home.
Farrah Abraham: Trayvon Martin Who?
I think it would be safe to say that Farrah Abraham should stick to porn, because the girl is an idiot.
“Backdoor Teen Mom” was on the “Matty P’s Radio Happy Hour” show when suddenly they asked her how she felt about the Trayvon situation.
“I feel like I’ve met her or something,” Farrah blurted out, “It sounds so familiar … I don’t know what she is so I can’t picture the person with the name right now.”
Wow. Just wow.
Teenager Defaces Ancient Egyptian Temple…
… and miraculously he’s not American.
The boy in question is a 15-year-old Chinese boy who scrawled a note on an ancient Egyptian sculpture and sparked international ire.
An image of the graffiti in the Luxor Temple, which read, “Ding Jinhao was here,” was reposted all across Chinese blogging sites.
“I’m so embarrassed that I want to hide myself,” wrote the original poster, a Chinese traveler. Added another: “It’s a disgrace to our entire race!” Soon, Internet users had figured out Ding’s location in Nanjing; they posted his birthdate and school online
Now, his parents have apologized, China Daily reports. “We want to apologize to the Egyptian people and to people who have paid attention to this case across China,” they said. They added that their son has learned his lesson, and his father called on people to stop hounding the boy: “This is too much pressure for him to take.” The graffiti appeared in the 3,500-year-old temple in May, but the picture was just posted this weekend. Just days ago, a top Chinese official called for better behavior among Chinese tourists, the BBC notes.
Man Butt-Dials 911 While Discussing Murder Plot
Florida resident Scott Simon learned a tough lesson about butt-dialing after he unintentionally dialed 911 while still frothing with rage over a late-night dispute at a Waffle House. In the recording, Simon is heard saying that he intends to follow the man he was arguing with to his house and shoot him.
That’s a big no-no with 911 dispatchers
That man, Nicholas Walker, was indeed shot and killed mere minutes later, while he was pulling his car onto I-95. Simon was arrested Tuesday over the May 5 incident, and while police don’t think he actually killed Walker, he’s been charged with first-degree murder because they believe he orchestrated the hit.
“This is a first for me,” a police spokesman said. “Criminals say crazy things all the time, but I’ve never seen anyone call a recorded line.”
Two Teenagers Arrested For Threatening Steubenville Victim
Teenagers will never learn, specially when it comes to threatening people over social networks: That’s the lesson two 16-year-old girls learned after police arrested them for allegedly posting death threats against the victim of the Steubenville rape case
The threats were made on Facebook and Twitter, the AP reports; CBS News quotes one of them as reading, “you ripped my family apart, you made my cousin cry , so when I see you xxxxx, it’s gone be a homicide.” Police say they’ve linked one of the girls to one of the convicted rapists, Ma’Lik Richmond. The girls are being held in a juvenile facility, and face charges of aggravated menacing.
What I find really disturbing is that the teenagers making threats are girls… just saying.
KFC Will Lick Your Mashed Potatoes… At Least This Woman Would (pic)
A KFC employee was fired after posting a photo on Facebook of her licking a tub of mashed potatoes.
The photo of course went somewhat viral and reached the eyes of KFC parent company Yum Brands
The photo made its way to the Facebook page of WJHL News Channel 11 in Johnson City, Tenn. As the photo gained traction, WJHL reached out to KFC to learn more. Spokesman Rick Maynard responded that the food was never served to customers and both the employee in the photo and the employee that took the photo have been terminated.
I don’t know about you, but I rather have this girl lick my mashed potatoes than getting this nugget.
