Senator Almost Hit By Train During ‘Rail Safety’ Presentation

Senator Almost Hit By Train During ‘Rail Safety’ Presentation

Of course, we should all respect and be careful around the railroad tracks. Ironically, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal didn’t heed his own advice as he stood just inches from the tracks during his own rail safety presentation as can be seen in this KHON2 News video. 

Just as the speaker said, “Safety as you know is paramount,” a train whizzed by just inches from hitting the Senator himself!

That’s embarrassing and could have ended much worse!

The video has gone viral with over 650,000 hits!

Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys Are Having A Reunion Tour

Or rather, this is MAYBE happening, they're currently in talks for a world reunion tour. These talks probably involve whether Victoria Beckham will bother to grace anyone with her presence not lip synced voice. All I know is that I want tickets and I can't wait to see which Backstreet Boys' hairline has receded the fastest.

James Franco Now Offering Acting Classes to the Masses

James Franco is now offering acting classes in New York as a part of his community service parole (community service parole crossed out) acting repertoire. What the fuck does he teach? How to be in love with Seth Rogan? How to be stoned as shit on camera? How to look ugly as fuck for an Instagram?  We're low key into these acting classes, which we're pretty sure are basically just getting high with James Franco. If there are any betches in New York, let us know if they're any good or if we should spend the money on shitty vodka.

This Skydiving Dachshund Proves Some Dogs Are Tougher Than They Look (Photos)

Normally, when we think of fierce, fearless dogs, the bigger, tougher breeds, like pit bulls or Rottweilers come to mind. Dachshunds, not so much.

Well, Riley, a 4-year-old dachshund from San Francisco just turned the tables on everyone’s ideas of what “tough” means. He jumped out of a plane at 13,000 feet with his owner, Nathan Batiste.

That’s right: The pup went skydiving.

Batiste, 38, a seasoned skydiver, has made the plunge over 400 times but wanted to make his latest jump a little more special.

He had special goggles made for his puppy pal, strapped the little guy to his chest with a custom-made harness and jumped out of the plane.

According to Batiste, Riley loved his first-ever jump — so much so that the pair is already planning to do it again in the future.

Who needs goggles anyway.

That smile doesn’t lie: Riley is having the time of his life.

A Female Cop Is Seen Sitting On The Side Of An Overpass. When Drivers Take A Closer Look? Shocking!

It’s not everyday you’d get the opportunity to save someone’s life, but it IS everyday you can make a difference in their quality of life.

It doesn’t take much, sometimes all you need to do is sit down and take a listen to what they have to say – maybe nobody else has never cared enough to. One female police officer discovered just how big of a difference a simple talk can make when she and her partner responded to a call about a suicidal man on an overpass.

The guy didn’t trust male police officers at all and refused to speak with anyone but a female, so officers Brandi and Candace headed to the scene. They attempted to speak to him and bring him back over the ledge, but every time it seemed they made progress some passing driver would yell out that he SHOULD jump, it was shattered. These two officers had a message during a news interview that everyone needs to hear, check it out in the video below.
