When South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley declared a state of emergency on Thursday evening due to floods cause by extreme amounts of rain, many people unfortunately thought she was exaggerating.

RIP Street Raccoon, You Lived A Short But Decent Life

A raccoon met his untimely demise on a street in Toronto and because city services anywhere are notoriously slow to respond to relatively low-level emergencies, its lifeless body lay in disgrace on the sidewalk for 11 hours before Animal Control got their shit together to pick it up.
