    A 70-year-old man told police his wife died on a road trip, so he strapped her in their car’s passenger seat and continued on.

  • Secret U.S. missile kills terrorists with knives instead of explosives

    Ever heard of a missile that doesn’t explode? That, the¬†Wall Street Journal¬†reports, is a key feature of a secret weapon adapted by the US military. It’s a modified version of a Hellfire missile that hits pinpoint targets but doesn’t explode on impact, meaning reduced damage and less risk of civilian casualties. The weapon, which the¬†Journal¬†likens to a “speeding anvil” falling out of the sky, is known as R9X. But it also has a nickname, “the flying Ginsu,” inspired by its […]

  • Hacked Lime scooters spew offensive comments at riders in Australia

    BRISBANE, Australia ‚Äď Not your everyday electric scooter feature: a built-in voice-over that blurts out sexually charged and otherwise objectionable remarks. Gizmodo¬†reports that’s what some riders apparently got in Brisbane, Australia, where at least eight scooters from the transportation rental company Lime have already been yanked from circulation after someone hacked into the scooters’ audio files and inserted their own comments. One¬†video that’s going around shows a bunch of the scooters lined up in the street, all shouting out their […]

  • Woman regains consciousness 27 years after car crash

    Until June 2018, Munira Abdulla had last been conscious when mobile phones were just¬†starting to be widely sold. Had they then been readily available, someone might have been able to call for help. Instead, Abdulla waited for hours for help to arrive after the car she was in collided with a school bus in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates, in 1991. Though the 4-year-old son she reportedly shielded from impact walked away with only a bruise, Abdulla, 32, suffered a […]

  • Oil rig workers save tired dog found swimming off coast of Thailand

    Oil workers about 135 miles off the coast of Thailand saw something in the water that shouldn’t have been there: a tired dog, swimming. The pooch made it to the rig, where workers eventually hoisted him to safety, reports the¬†Bangkok Post. It’s not clear how the dog got so far out to sea, but the best guess is that he fell off a boat in the Gulf of Thailand, per¬†ABC News.

  • Bald eagles’ nest has an unusual parent combination

    Tune into the¬†live webcam¬†of a bald eagles’ nest in Illinois, and you may see a rare sight: two dads and one mom tending three eaglets, reports the¬†Washington Post. The webcam is courtesy of the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife Refuge, and a post at¬†Audubon¬†explains just how unusual the situation is. Males are typically territorial when it comes to breeding, making it highly unusual for two of them to wind up in such close proximity. But not only have Valor I […]

    ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. ‚Äď John Ralph asked his co-workers to take pictures of him at work because, according to police, “if anything happened to his mother he would need an alibi.” Something¬†had¬†happened to his mother: Ralph, 51, allegedly murdered her that same day.
