"The Real World" Sucks
The show we once loved has hit an all-time low. Read More »

You may remember Puck from “The Real World San Francisco,” which aired way back in 1994, when the show didn’t take place in a hot tub and reality TV was still considered “real.” We always had really low hopes for the bike messaging, nose-picking, homophobic, anti-Semitic, hygiene hating, trash-talking bad boy of the season, which he ultimately fulfilled.

According to TMZ, Puck, real name David Rainey, has been locked up in a California prison for stalking a woman. While the details of the crime are still unclear, it appears that he pleaded no contest to stalking the same woman back in 2010, received two years in prison, got out early and then stalked her again, violating the restraining order. Great work, Puck!

Meanwhile, Rachel Campos, who made out with Puck during the season (eww!), ended up marrying “Road Rules: All Stars” alum Sean Duffy. They live in Wisconsin and have six kids. Good call, Rachel. [TMZ]

Mantatee Molester Arrested

Manatee Molester
This woman was caught joy riding a manatee. Read More »

Molest a manatee and you may find yourself behind bars. Gloria Garcia Guiterrez, the woman who was caught riding a manatee in Florida a couple of months back, was taken into custody this weekend. Authorities showed up at Sears, where the 53-year-old works, and booked her. Guiterrez admitted to taking a joy ride on the endangered sea mammal, and now faces up to six months in jail. She is currently out on bail.

I can’t say I blame her. Manatees are irresistible. But alas, the law protects them from being intentionally annoyed, molested, harassed or disturbed. Hey, I want a law protecting me from all that. [LA Times]

There are many reasons why I am not a pilot. I don’t like flying that much. I have poor sight and coordination. And also, I get mind-squeezingly bad migraines. And though that didn’t stop one Lufthansa pilot from taking off, it did prevent him from completing the flight. The Daily Mail reports that on a recent flight from Newark to Frankfurt, Germany, a pilot was stricken by an especially bad migraine, and his co-pilot was forced to ask if there was anybody on the plane who could help fly.

I wish I was kidding.

The Top 5 Dirtiest Crimes Committed In The Name Of Love

After a bad breakup, feelings of love can quickly turn to hatred. You say things you don’t mean and wish for things you don’t actually want. But what happens when a person becomes so livid that bitter hypotheticals become actual actions? Some strange tales prove that all is not fair — or sane, for that matter — in love and war.

Love Explosion: While flying to Dallas, Christopher Shell’s plane was turned around and boarded by a SWAT team–that were coming for him. Shell’s ex-girlfriend had phoned in a bomb threat, saying he possessed liquid explosives. Fortunately, Shell was quickly cleared, but the ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend were brought into custody soon after. Read more…

How The Amazing Nerds At NASA Would Cook A Thanksgiving Turkey

Seriously, could NASA get any cooler? They’re landing rovers on Mars, mapping out the galaxy, and studying dark energy, all while rocking star-spangled mohawks. The folks over at Gizmodo were curious to see how those zany NASA scientists might use their high tech toys to cook a turkey this Thanksgiving. The resulting recipes, drawn up by illustrator Josh McKible, will definitely come in handy in the event your oven breaks tomorrow and you must make do with nothing more than some aluminum-coated kapton and an R-2000 Rotopod. Click here to see more diagrams and get the full recipes (one of which requires 12,000 turkeys and a Thermal Vac Chamber). And NASA, we don’t say it enough, but we are so, so thankful for you!
