This is amazing. We knew that baseball-sized hail was falling in Dallas, now under heavy beating by tornadoes, but look at these things. And look at that car! If these balls of ice hit you on the head, you are dead.
Those things flying are tractor trailers, lifted several feet up in the air by the extremely strong tornadoes in Dallas County, Texas. It's an emergency situation down there right now, and it seems it's not going to stop any time soon.

We put up with the TSA's potentially harmful scanners and overzealous gropings because they make our air travel safe, right? Right! Oh wait, maybe not. According to a high-ranking source inside the TSA, an undercover agent was able to pass through five full-body scanners at the Dallas Ft. Worth International Airport…
At the age of 24, you'd think Dallas man Jermmie Marquis Davis would've outgrown prank phone-calling, but as it transpires, he racked up $90,000 in calls to the Illinois National Runaway Switchboard—three-way-calling them with a sex hotline.
After their giant screen blocked a punt, you'd figure the owners of the Dallas Cowboys stadium would be extra careful with their massive displays—but it looks like somebody didn't shut down his computer properly. Whoops! [Thanks, Richard!]
Despite the fact that the Cowboys' new 180-foot HD screen has already blocked a punt and the NFL season hasn't even started yet, the league is going to let it stay put. At least this year.

The Dallas Cowboys will be taking over the world's largest video screen crown from that Japanese race track in 2009. Their HDTV will be a total of 11,200 square feet-actually bigger than when they were talking about this back in 2006-which beats the 8,066 sqft. Tokyo Racetrack one by quite a large margin. If 159 feet…
