“They’re amazed by the amount of bugs that they see and the variety, and how big they can get,” Rafael Lopez, who runs the NYC Hiking and Backpacking Group on Facebook.


Good Fucking Grief!

Case Western Reserve University, which will host Tuesday's presidential debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, has set up “presidential debate support spaces” to help students express their feelings about the debate, controversial events occurring around the country, and the upcoming election in November.

In preparation for the debate, CWRU has arranged for “presidential debate support spaces” where “students can discuss the impact of recent national events, including the presidential debate and upcoming election.” The sessions will be hosted by the University Health and Counseling Services staff, however, the "support Space is not a substitute for psychotherapy and does not constitute mental health treatment.”

Perhaps they should worry about their acne and the unbelievable debt they are accruing for that "Liberal Arts" degree.

Not much pre-planning on this "get out of jail" scheme. Genius Award Winner.

A criminal who hijacked and diverted a helicopter in mid-air in an attempt to break his wife out of a Belgian prison has been arrested after detectives found he used his own name to book the flight.

Mike Gielen, 24, threatened the helicopter’s pilot using a replica handgun as he sought to spring Kristel Appelt, 27, from Berkendaal women’s prison in south Brussels on Friday, where she was being held on suspicion of murdering an ex-boyfriend.

The helicopter circled the prison several times but Gielen’s plan was foiled as the pilot was unable to land within the courtyard. While the helicopter flew over the prison the inmates cheered and waved, but Gielen became nauseous and had to put his head out of the helicopter five times to be sick.
