Guy trying to take a selfie gets kicked in the face by train conductor

Perhaps this should be the punishment of all selfie takers. Or at least all selfie takers who put themselves in potentially dangerous situations just to take a damn picture of their mug blocking everything behind it. Jared Michael, the foolish guy in the video, paid the price. He tried to take a selfie in front of a… » 4/16/14 6:58pm Wednesday 6:58pm

I don't recall Indiana Jones IV being so damn terrible (but it is)

I think we can all agree that Indiana Jones and The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull is the very worst of the Indy movies, but I don't recall it being as bad as this Everything wrong with... episode shows. No, wait, I do now. I just think seeing Indy getting married at the end was so traumatic that it nuked every single… » 3/07/14 11:39pm 3/07/14 11:39pm

Oh my God, idiot geniuses jump started a car with an AK-47

Filed in things you now know are possible but should probably never try in your lifetime unless your life depended on it but maybe still shouldn't: jump starting a dead car battery with an AK-47.

These Guys Tried to Pass Off Melting Blocks of Ice as $4k Worth of…

Committing insurance fraud, mail or otherwise, is universally a fairly dumb thing to do—especially when your plan is literally designed to fail. Like, say, that of 29-year-old idiot Nathan Meunch and friend. Because if you're trying to pass off a soggy, dripping cardboard box stuffed with ice as a $4,000 stack of… » 8/14/13 3:15pm 8/14/13 3:15pm

Just a Reminder That FedEx Doesn't Give a Crap About Your Packages

It can be FedEx. It can be UPS. It can be any shipping service, really. They all promise to get your packages to where you want them to go but there's no guarantee they'll treat your packages with any sort of tender, love or care. Most likely, they'll be thrown around, banged around and destroyed in the process. Just… » 7/26/13 9:13pm 7/26/13 9:13pm

Bank of America's Twitter Account Is One Really Really Dumb Robot

It's always nice to get a response from Company X's official Twitter account when you rage tweet about how Company X is so terrible and awful and that you'd never do anything with them again. It seems like they care about you! It seems like they want to help! It seems like they're... human. Too bad they're usually just … » 7/08/13 10:47pm 7/08/13 10:47pm

Today's Awful Apple Rumor: Retina iPad Mini

There's something in the air this week. Maybe it's that the holidays are coming, or that it's getting colder, or that there's not much actual news to be had three weeks before the Consumer Electronics Show. But for some reason, the dumb Apple rumors are piling up like so many discarded MobileMe accounts. » 12/14/12 10:37am 12/14/12 10:37am

A Teenage Girl Got Arrested Because She Posted a YouTube Video Saying…

Hannah Sabata, a girl who's only 19 years old, did something a lot of teenage girls do: post a video to YouTube in which they talk to the camera. But unlike most 19 years old, Sabata bragged about stealing a car and robbing a bank, even flashing the cash to prove it. She, um, got arrested because of that video. » 12/03/12 11:00pm 12/03/12 11:00pm
