Sit down if you’re not already and I’ll hold your virtual hand as I walk you through this one. Sixty-year-old Ohio woman Valerie Spruill made a horrifying discovery after her husband Percy passed away: that he was actually her father. HOLYSHITOMG, I know.
You’re probably wondering, as am I, how this is possible. Here’s how it went down: Valerie was raised by her grandparents from the age of three months on. Her mother Christine, who was a “night lady” and put away for sex charges in 1980, got together with her father Percy when she was only 15. The pair had seven children together, including Valerie, and Valerie suspects she has more siblings out there. Keep reading »
This is Kazuhiro Watanabe. Last week he shattered the world record for tallest mohawk with his massive spike of hair that reaches 3 feet, 8.6 inches above his head. Pretty amazing, right?
Between Kazuhiro’s new record and NASA’s mohawked hottie, this punk rock hairstyle is definitely having a moment (in related news, it might be a good time to buy stock in Aquanet). All this recent ‘hawk talk got us in the mood to ogle some other crazy mohawks, so we found 10 more (literally) hair-raising hairdos, including a couple past record holders.

Warning: If you weren’t already terrified of hair accidents (I was already, thank you very much — I watched a girl’s hair catch on fire from her birthday candles once and it scarred me for life), you will be.
Seventeen-year-old Florida high school student Kayla Carrera’s hair was ripped from her scalp when it got caught in a drill press machine in shop class last week, leaving the girl bald and bruised the week before her senior homecoming. Her mother, who is a teacher for the school district, feels that the faculty “let her down.” Meaning, they screwed up royally. First, it was against school policy for Kayla to be operating the machine without her hair pulled back, but her shop teacher didn’t seem to notice or didn’t enforce the safety procedures. Then, immediately following the incident, the school nurse determined that Kayla didn’t need immediate medical attention and decided against calling 911. To add insult to injury, the school neglected to inform Kayla’s mother of the accident. Although the school district has apologized profusely for the accident, they have launched an investigation of the shop teacher.

“When I saw the raccoon I thought I’d have some fun,” said 44-year-old Russian man, Alexander Kirilov.
I spent a long time trying to understand this sentence. The thought of “having some fun” with an animal is beyond my scope of comprehension. Keep reading »
