In the ultimate eff you to the universe, an Australian billionaire is building a Titanic II, which will set sail sometime in 2018. This feels like one of those times we'll look back at history and be like, "Yeah, maybe that wasn't the best idea...again."
We're all for tempting fate, but this seems down right ballsy.
It's been 70 years, but this week, World War II veteran Norwood Thomas took a journey across the globe to reunite with his wartime girlfriend in Australia. The couple met in London when Joyce Morris was 17 years old, and they proceeded to exchange letters and proposals for years. Due to a misunderstanding (remember, back before the Internet, mistakes were fatal to your love life) Joyce thought Thomas had moved on. After lives spent apart, including their own weddings and children, the pair reunited this past Wednesday. Nicholas Sparks is waiting with bated breath to capitalize on their long-lost love story.
3. Alligator Thrown Through Drive-Thru Window... For Real
A rare albino turtle was found in Australia last week, and while this may sound like a heart-warming story, volunteer Leigh Warneminde explained that alibno turtles don't often survive in the wild as they have no natural camouflage. So there's your depressing news for the day. Cute little Alby here is probably already dead. Sorry.
5. 'I'm Defying Gravity!' With MoonWalker Shoes...
On Monday, Chipotle customers could receive a free burrito by texting "RAINCHECK" to 888-222. Unfortunately for Henry Levine, a few hundred customers added an extra 2 to the number, and berated the Maryland lawyer for not being the desired burrito provider.
Customers were pretty nasty to Levine, but we get it. It's a free burrito, after all.
8. Hundreds of Hidden Galaxies Revealed Behind the Milky Way
A region of space has been discovered hiding behind the Milky Way, revealing hundreds of previously unknown galaxies. Hundreds. Who knows what else the Milky Way has been hiding?! She has been rather distant lately...
A man aboard an Air Mediterranee flight started a massive brawl, urinated on another passenger and was pinned down by flight attendants before being escorted, shirtless, off the plane in Lyon, causing a three hour delay for the rest of the passengers.
He did not, then, ride off into the sunset atop his trusty stallion.
A 600-pound pig escaped from a farm and wandered up to the primary voting polls in New Hampshire this week. In the pig's defense, we've all mistaken our political system for a swine-filled barnyard from time to time.
