Love this one.

Animals, man. Can’t get enough of them.

Ingwelala Private Nature Reserve in South Africa was shaken with the screams of a man who was attacked and killed by Pride of Lion in private game reserve near the Kruger National Park. Before the lions were dispersed with the help of gun-shots, they had eaten most of the body barring the head that was untouched. Police initially thought that the victim was a tractor driver who worked in this private reserve. But later on when the driver appeared alive the suspicion began to grow. A hunting rifle was recovered near the remains of the dead that almost confirmed it to be a poacher who had sneaked into the private reserve. The man was killed viciously and the incident had been very disturbing and terrifying. Nevertheless, sympathy does not stand with the victim who had been hunting in the private reserve. The man had killed 3 Baboon families and spread the bodies around to attract and distract the lions to make them easier to hunt.

Man, there’s nothing better than seeing animal killers eaten by animals, huh? Karma just keeps kicking ass all over the planet, man. Cheetahs mauling wanna be selfie-takers, bears eating their human tormentors, the list continues to grow. And now we have this poacher who killed baboon families to bait lions, only to end up as the bait himself. It’s poetic really, and it made my freakin’ day.

Note: I love how the lions always leave the head, like a calling card or something. Lions, man.

Asshole.

French luxury sports car brand started showing off the new Bugatti La Voiture Noire, which has an eye-popping price tag of nearly $19-million. Bugatti rolled out the one-off supercar to celebrate the brand’s 110th anniversary and to pay homage to the Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic, an extremely rare all-black luxury coupe it made in the 1930s. The car is notable for an all-black, one piece exterior “without any irritating lines” in its design. In fact, the company says the “bumpers are smoothly integrated into the body and the windscreen seems to flow seamlessly into the windows at the sides, like the visor on a helmet.”

Cool car and all, but I’d take that 1930s model over it in a heartbeat, wouldn’t you? And is it me or does every new car model looks like a Toyota Camry? Let’s see some creativity, car people. You’re better’n’at.

PS- A $19-million car, bought on a 5-year plan, would be around $320,000 a month. Seems reasonable.

PPS- This is the only car of its kind. Rich people annoy me, man.

 

Love this one.

So yeah, Russia Slap Fighting looks fun.


Nothing to see here. Just a damn turkey stopping traffic to let his peeps cross a busy highway. Then once everyone is across he nonchalantly ambles onward because it ain’t no thing, just turkeys being turkeys.

Man, this little dude don’t give a damn about nuthin’, amirite? That tree rat is just mocking the Symbol of America like you read about. The photographer said the squirrel was darting about, just daring that Bald Eagle to take its shot. Stay outta my tree, bro. Thankfully the bird flew off before any of its buddies saw what was happening. That’s just embarrassing for birds of prey everywhere. Squirrels, man.

The great GoPro Heist has commenced.

Looks normal enough.

YouTuber Kyle Long was arrested on Sunday in Mountain View, California, for allegedly threatening violence if his meeting with the platform didn’t go as planned.

Long, 33, had driven over 3,000 miles from his home in Waterville, Maine, to the headquarters of Google, which owns YouTube, in California. According to his wife, Samantha Long, her husband became angry when he discovered that a YouTube video he’d uploaded on how to get rich quickly had been taken down, along with his account. However, Samantha didn’t tell him that she was the one who took down the video, not YouTube.

“I just didn’t tell him it was me taking it down because I didn’t want him losing his shit in front of my kids,” she said to BuzzFeed News. She described the video as “bizarre” and said she was worried about his mental health.

Gee, Samantha Long, you’re concerned about your husband’s mental health because he filmed a “bizarre” video for YouTube? What about the fact that he drove 3000-miles to confront Google? Was that a red flag for ya? And nice job sounding level-headed in a national publication with the phrase “losing his shit.” Something tells me Kyle Long isn’t the only wackjob in that household. Good Lord.

Note: I only saw my Dad get angry at a business one time in my life. He was buying something at Sears and the cashier loudly and dismissively told him his card had been declined. This was a mistake, not to mention rude, and Dad calmly told her to cancel the card. He then tossed another Sears card on the counter and told her to cancel it as well. Dad was the Purchasing Manager at Mead Corporation and it was the company card. The idiot lady complied, and by the time we got home the President of the company was calling to apologize. True story.

Yahoo Lifestyle- Some people will go a bit too far to get that perfect selfie. A woman was attacked by a jaguar after she crossed over a zoo barrier in order to take a photo with the wild animal, authorities say.

And so it goes. Once again some dipshit tried a stupid selfie and paid the price. People have now been killed or injured talking selfies with lions, bears, on the edge of cliffs, on top of towers, and now with a damn cheetah. Amazing really. Natural selection at its best I guess? Anywho, good job jaguar. You did it for all of us.

Just a friendly reminder of how difficult it is to become a college athlete in any sport, at any level.

So you guys know about Google Street View, right? It’s the feature that allows you to punch in an address and see a view from the street of that address. The photos are taken by a car with weird looking cameras on top of it. Anyway, one such photo shoot was hilariously ruined by a little dog that chased the car and ended up in every damn photo.

Love. It.

Not today, dumbass.

StreetStats- Pedestrian deaths were up 35% last year, compared to a decade ago. This is due to the rise of heavy SUVs, population growth in regions that do not prioritize walking and distracted driving, a new report shows. The Governors Highway Safety Association estimated that roughly 6,227 pedestrians were killed last year, the highest pedestrian fatality figure since 1990 and 35% more than were killed 10 years ago.

Gee, ya think? This has to be the most unsurprising statistic of all-time, man. People don’t pay attention anymore. Hell, I don’t even to stop to make a turn without keeping my eye on the rearview mirror due to all the damn people texting and driving. During my travels over the past couple years I’ve witnessed people not only texting and driving but watching movies on their iPads, doing their make-up, reading a book, and sleeping. I’m dead serious. I once passed a guy, glanced over and saw his eye closed, blew my horn, and he proceeded to nonchalantly give me a thumbs-up and proceed onward like it was perfectly normal. Hell, people aren’t looking for anything in front of them, human beings or otherwise. Keep your head on a swivel, folks. People are nuts.

Note: On the other hand, my 5′-10″ father could be driving and somehow reach into the backseat of our 1966 Pontiac Catalina Station Wagon, smack me in the head for being an idiot, and still stay between the lines. That’s a special gift right there.

 

The Cut- Things appear to be heating up for Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson and actress Kate Beckinsale — as in, it might be time to bestow upon them their celebrity couple name. (Does Beckinson work? Sure.)

On Thursday evening, a Cut staffer spotted Kate Beckinsale dining at West Village restaurant Waverly Inn with her arm over the shoulder of someone she initially struggled to identify. She says she thought, “Who’s that goofy assistant-looking dude with Kate Beckinsale?” before realizing that the mystery man was in fact Davidson.

Although neither member of Beckinson have explicitly commented on their relationship, they’ve made very little attempt to conceal whatever it is that’s going on between them. Since they were first seen “being very flirty together” at a Golden Globes after-party, a source told “Page Six,” the pair was spent time together at one of Davidson’s stand-up sets in Los Angeles in early February, where they were photographed holding hands as they left the club. Then, photos were published of the pair kissing intently at a hockey game. Yep, it is ON.

Oh, for the love of God. Kate, Kate, Kate. Honey, you’re supposed to be looking for someone 20-years older, not in the other direction. Have you not read my website? I’m seriously crushed over here. And what the hell’s up with Pete Davidson, man? Dude looks like a train hoppin’ hobo yet he dates women like Ariana Grande and now my girl Kate. Mind blowing really. Woman, man. The eternal mystery.

A photographer and guide in northern California’s Point Reyes National Seashore named Daniel Dietrich spotted an unusual animal: A female coyote with blue eyes. Blue is an incredibly rare eye color for coyotes (they’re usually dark brown), and it’s likely caused by a chance mutation. Now, it appears the trait is spreading. In the last few months, at least four other coyotes with blue eyes have been seen and photographed within about a 100-mile radius of the seashore.

National Geographic investigated Dietrich’s find in June of 2018, calling the coyote potentially “one in a million.”

And so it continues. Blue-eyed coyotes, man. You know where this is heading, right? In the past few years we’ve seen bears walking around upright, sea lions grabbing kids off of docks and whales gathering to party in the Pacific Ocean. The animals are changing, man. Evolving right before our eyes. Next we’ll have ducks organizing raids on villages and pigs taking over the local supermarket. It can only get worse, folks. Prepare yourselves accordingly.
