Fenton attributes her long health to none other than Miller High Life and whiskey. She claims her doctors recommended her to drink three beers a day and a glass of whiskey, so she has been...for 70 years. Her current physicians have asked her to slow down with her drinking owing to the fact that she isn't eating as much as she used to, but party girls don't answer to anyone.
2. Billionaire Buys 7-Year-Old World's Most Expensive Diamond
On Wednesday, the "Blue Moon" diamond sold for an astonishing $48.4 million, making it the world's most expensive diamond. Weighing a modest 12.03 carats, the diamond is a vivid exquisite blue. CNN confirmed that billionaire Joseph Lau purchased this and another pink diamond for his daughter, Josephine, who is seven...
So if you're reading this, just know that a 7-year-old now has a diamond worth more than I'll probably ever make in my lifetime!
Two men, Kevin Norton, 18, and James Stumbo, 27, are being held by police after making violent online threats prior to a Pokemon Tournament taking place in Boston. The pair posted threatening messages prior to the Pokemon World Championships in August, claiming that they had a 12-gauge shotgun, an AR-15 assault rifle and nearly 300 rounds of ammunition in their car.
They plead "not guilty" to gun charges which is strange considering that, prior to the event, Stumbo posted a picture of their car with two shotguns placed on the trunk with the caption "Kevin Norton and I are ready for worlds Boston here we come!!!"
4. Man Caught Hiding in Drain to Shoot Up-Skirt Pictures
This week a 28-year-old man in Japan was arrested for hiding in sewer drains in order to look up women's skirts. The man was spotted after sitting in a sewer for five hours when someone spotted some of his hair sticking out from the grate. Police say the man was using his smartphone to shoot up-skirt pictures. Furthermore, police state that the man told them he wanted to be reborn as "part of pavement in the next life," which is equal parts creative and creepy.
5. Preacher Makes Insane Comments About Drowning Children
Wanna know something insane? People are still upset about the Harry Potter books, even though the last one was published back in 2007. Most recently, Preacher Kevin Swanson was speaking at the National Religious Liberties Conference when he made some truly wacky comments while giving a speech about the harms of homosexuality. Most notably, he made comments that it would be better for parents to drown their children than let them read about gay Hogwarts Headmaster, Albus Dumbledore.
For clarification purposes, I have included the quote in question: "For tens of millions of parents it would be better that a millstone be hung around their neck and they be drowned at the bottom of the sea."
This week's case of extreme irony comes from none other than my problematic fav of a state. Last week, a four-year deputy was being honored by the group Mothers Against Drunk Driving for making over 100 DUI arrests over the past year...but there was one problem. The problem was that the deputy was too slammed to pick up his award.
According to the police report, Michael Szeliga headed to the Fort-Lauderdale training event ready to rage. He got wasted with two other officers, then returned to his room to prepare for the banquet he would be honored at. A fellow police chief recommended he not attend the event owing to the fact he was wasted, but Szeliga ignored his requests.
Apparently, Szeliga didn't believe he needed to attend the training because he was switching from the DUI unit to being a detective...which, you know, is super comforting for everyone.
A small town in Colorado is panicking after a "teen sexting epidemic" has broken out at a local high school. Originally, the sexting was thought to be contained to just the football team, but a new report shows:
Superintendent of Canon City High School, George Welsh estimates that half the school is involved. That's about 500 students based on the initial stages of the investigation. Some eighth graders may also be involved.
Some may scratch their heads at the fuss and say "horny teens will be horny teens," but school officials want to bring criminal charges against the perpetrators.
The issue makes sense when the subjects are under 18, but what do you expect happens when you give a bunch of hormonal teens cell phones?
8. People Offended by New Starbucks Cup, World Spins On
This week Starbucks received backlash for their new line of Christmas cups. The problem? There are no snowflakes on them.
Some Christians are angry over the minimalistic design of the cups, a yearly Starbucks tradition, because they believe the company is waging a "War on Christmas" by removing snowflakes and snowmen from the design. While some may find this complaint to be the fever dream of someone on some serious opiates, it is actually a pretty widely received criticism.
One protestor stated, "They'll destroy everything that they can get their hands on, even a simple cup of coffee," which, LOL.
Others are making their disapproval heard by protesting Starbucks, which seems fine since we'd rather enjoy our grande Peppermint Mocha with extra sprinkles without your judgment thank you very much.
Three workers with KSE Partners, a strategic communications and government affairs firm, have created a side project that is raising some eyebrows. The trio have created an underwear design with a black and white rendering of presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. On them they read "Feel The Bern."
Judy Brown, from Massachusetts, went to the hospital after experiencing some stomach pain that couldn't be cured with a few tums. When she got to the hospital, she got the shock of her life: she was actually in labor.
An hour later she gave birth to an 8-lb baby she namedCarolyn Rose.
According to reports mother and baby are doing fine, despite the parents being completely unprepared for a baby.
"It was a little bit scary getting into the hospital thinking something was really bad was going on," Brown told ABC News. "To understand and take in that was I pregnant and was about to go into labor..it was very overwhelming."
