Why You Shouldn't Shine Lasers at Police Aircraft (You Get Hunted Down)

When I was a kid, I had a small laser pointer. It chowed down on single cell batteries and did little more than annoy my pets.

Buzz Aldrin once punched a moon hoaxer in the face

Amazingly, there are still some people who don't think we landed on the moon. These people are complete idiots, to put it kindly. Back in 2002, Buzz Aldrin punched one of those idiots after being followed and harassed at a hotel in Beverly Hills. » 7/16/14 11:17am 7/16/14 11:17am

An Idiot Counterfeiter Returned His Printer with a Sheet of Fake…

It's one of the oldest tricks in the book; if you can't earn money, why not make it? With your printer. Now that doesn't actually work. Making counterfeit cash is really hard. But that won't keep idiots from trying it, apparently. A Wisconsin man took it a step further though, by trying to return his copier/printer … » 3/10/13 7:10pm 3/10/13 7:10pm

12 Idiots With Hideous and Stupid Apple Tattoos

It is one thing to like Apple products.

Brazen Alcoholic Gets a DUI On a Stolen Motorized Wheelchair

If you steal someone's motorized wheelchair to go for a joyride, you're sick—Or maybe just completely drunk like this guy. How drunk was Richard Kulma when he was busted?

Did know that it can take four days to fix a software hiccup on an iPad?

Gang Members Accept Cop's Friend Request, Get Arrested, Are Idiots

The first rule of Brooklyn's notorious Brower Boys gang is: You don't talk about the Brower Boys gang. The second is: Unless it's on Facebook, then it's totally fine. Oh, but maybe accept a cop's friend request before you do? » 5/31/12 9:00am 5/31/12 9:00am

Hey, It's Been One Year Since the Rapture and Nobody Is Floating Yet

Remember the rapture? You know, that absurd concept that one day all good Christians will physically float to the clouds to meet God?

These Imbeciles Thought the Titanic Disaster Was Just a Movie

Very Stupid Man Arrested for Calling 911 on Facebook-Spying Wife

Poor Doyle Hardwick just wanted to cruise Facebook in peace, without his wife watching over his shoulder. He tried everything.
