Sometimes people do smart things. Like, really really smart. Take for example, this group of four women in Detroit. After a meal at the International House of Pancakes (please tell me they got the Butterscotch Rocks ‘cakes), these gals decided to skip out on their bill. They took off, a waitress chasing them out the door to get their license plate number as they piled into a Mercury Cougar. Then, the driver lost control of the car, and it went careening into…the side of the restaurant. Everyone ran. But then the driver had to come back to get her car and apologize for the incident. Turns out, she had $200 in cash in her wallet, and totally let her friends talk her into bailing.
The only time I’ve ever skipped out on a bill was when I kept (kept) asking the waitress for a check, and an hour later, she still hadn’t brought it. So I left without paying, conscience clear. Have you ever dined and dashed? Keep reading »
Do you ever leave the house in an outfit that looks fine, but by the time you get to work you’ve convinced yourself that you’re the worst dresser ever? You want to run home and change, even though you have 5 minutes to get to your desk. Or you’ve spilled coffee all over yourself as you run for the elevator? Or maybe you’ve been invited last minute to after-work cocktails, only to realize your jeans aren’t swanky enough? We’ve put together the emergency outfit for you to keep in your bottom desk drawer at work for these moments. You won’t be confident unless you feel your best, so skip the bad outfit days.

Alexandra Heminsley thought she’d gotten lucky on her vacation to Africa: only one mosquito bite, and a tiny one at that. As it turned out, the small, red bump on the inside of her arm wasn’t so much a mosquito bite as it was a Tumbu Fly egg. Yes, an egg inside her arm. And what comes from eggs? Baby insects. And what do those baby insects do when they are born trapped under someone skin? Freak the f**k out.

The U.K.’s Daily Mail just published photos of her two-bedroom boho, Moroccan, open-floor designed flat in Paddington, London. Apparently, even Sienna is being hit by the mortgage crisis, as she just slashed the price by £200,000. (No small hit, I don’t care which currency you figure it in. Not that I feel at all bad for her. She can’t sell one of her many million plus pound homes? Poor thing.) The bizarro highlight of the place is her mirrored, red-walled, Moroccan themed basement. Personally, it’s a little too S&M, naughty-closet feeling for me, especially with no water in the “sunken pool”——but who am I to judge, I live in 400 square feet of non-pool, barely a shower existence!

People‘s Hottest Bachelors issue hits newsstands this Friday, and we’ve got the list. Among the supposedly best looking eligible men in Hollywood are few gentlemen who simply don’t do it for us. The offenders, after the jump. Keep reading »
Hey remember that story we told you about yesterday, about the girl in the U.K. who wanted three stars tattooed on her face, and instead got 56? This is the guy who did it. Explains so much, huh? (He, for the record, says he will pay for half of the stars to be removed.) [Daily Mail U.K.] Keep reading »

With the Mexican military cracking down on drug trafficking, smugglers these days are having to get really creative. Take, for example, a group who stored a ton (literally) of cocaine inside shark carcasses, and when they got caught, tried to pass it off as a conserving agent. Yeah right, the only thing coke conserves is a big, fat hole in your septum. [Reuters]
