Have you ever gone to the movies and sat behind someone who’s talking and texting and throwing popcorn and thought, I wish a ninja were here to kick that guy’s ass? Well if you’re watching a movie at the Prince Charles Cinema in London, your wish could very well come true, thanks to a new campaign called, fittingly, “Invisible Cinema Ninjas.” Here’s how it works: volunteers dressed in black lycra “Morphsuits” are given free movie tickets in exchange for hiding in a dark corner of the theater and keeping an eye on the audience. If anyone dares pull out their cellphone or start up a side conversation with a friend, the ninja will leap out of the darkness and incapacitate them with a karate chop to the throat give them a stern warning. “The ‘Cinema Ninjas’ may sound ludicrous, but they have been a real success in clamping down on those ruining films for everyone else with inconsiderate behavior,” says the theater’s PR rep.

Damn, first the hot tub cinema, now cinema ninjas? London really knows how to make the most of the movie-watching experience. [Oddity Central]

Meet The World’s Tallest Mohawk And 10 Other Huge, Crazy, Colorful Hairdos

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. Click on the gallery to check ‘em out! [Huffington Post]

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.

Man Tries To Rape Raccoon, Gets His Penis Bitten Off

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 »

First Amy Poehler and Will Arnett split up, and now this. It’s not a good week for love, you guys. Since 2006, smitten couples have been decorating Rome’s Ponte Milvio bridge with padlocks to signify their eternal devotion (the craze was sparked by a novel called I Want You), but now the weight of all those love locks is threatening the ancient bridge. As of Monday, police have begun taking bolt cutters to thousands of the romantic symbols, which makes a lot of practical sense but is still kind of tragic to watch. Apparently the padlock-obsessed lovers have taken to expressing their commitment at other nearby landmarks like the railings near the Trevi Fountain, which gives a whole new meaning to the term “lock it down.” [Telegraph]
