Family Stealing 8,000 Pounds of Oranges In Spain Gets Arrested

When policemen take the oath, “To Protect and to Serve,” they typically don’t think that it will oranges they’re protecting. However, in this case, it was exactly four tons of oranges that were recovered by officers in Spain. Suspicious driving alerted them to the problem and, after a short chase, three cars filled with oranges and their drivers were apprehended. The suspects claimed that they were “coming from very far away and had been stopping and collecting oranges along the way.” After failing to present proper permits for transporting fruit and receiving word about the theft of shipment of oranges in a nearby town, the couple and their three sons were immediately arrested by the policemen. Source 1 While it may sound bizarre, this is actually quite a common occurrence in their countr...

This Is The Reason Behind Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s Decision To Always Fly Commercial

By now, Chrissy Teigen is famous for her quick wit, endless roasts of Donald Trump, and constant social media presence. Unlike most celebrities, Teigen often takes the time to respond to both haters and fans alike. She recently tweeted the details of a flight to Tokyo that went slightly awry due to an unexpected and confirmed passenger. The mini-saga prompted a fan to ask the question of why do the two stars not fly private? That’s a great question considering the celebrity couple has a combined net worth of about $50 million. Not surprisingly, the Twitter queen responded to the tweet and shared some honest facts about flying privately. Source 1 Don’t be thrown off by this and assume that they’re roughing it in the back of economy. Generally, a first class seat for a weekend trip to Japan ...

Delta is Cracking Down on Service and Support Animals

Delta has been fairly lenient when it comes to allowing service animals on board in the past, but now they’re looking to enforce tighter regulations. Effective March 1, these restrictions will require all passengers who are traveling with even a support pet to provide documentation 48 hours before their flight. These documents must provide medical reasoning as well as all proof that the animal has gone through the proper vaccinations and training. These new regulations are in light of recent events which have “led to serious safety risks involving untrained animals in flight.” Delta also revealed that the number of on-board service animals has risen 150 percent just since 2015, the contributing factor to the increase in safety risks and reported incidents (which they claim have increased 8...

Living Life to the Extreme  Source 1 Meet Angela and Ivan from Russia.

He started skating at a young age with the intention of becoming a hockey goalie, but as he got older figure skating called his name. Now he has the honor of being the first man to land five quadruple jumps in one program. Comments

This Camel Beauty Contest Experienced Some Botox Cheaters

Camels aren’t generally considered to be among nature’s more graceful or attractive creatures, but Saudi Arabia seems to think so. The King Abdulaziz Camel Festival runs for a month and typically draws around 30,000 humped participants. The festival offers other amenities such as camel racing, sand art and camel hair art, and exhibits detailing varying camel types. The camels are judged based off of several factors — including their lip shape, hump size, and even their nose shape. The prize purse is usually in the tens of millions and has gotten as high as $57 million. That kind of cash was simply too alluring for one camel owner. Ali Al Mazrouei, a high-end camel breeder and a festival regular, was disqualified from the contest when it was discovered that he was injecting Botox into his c...

Truck Driver Nearly Destroyed the Nazca Lines in Peru

The mysterious Nazca Lines have baffled the world for centuries, with many archaeologists wondering just how the heck an ancient civilization dating as far back as 500 B.C. could have constructed such intricate lines without the use of any aerial vehicles. To this day the lines remain among the most astounding geoglyphs ever found, when scale and precision are taken into account. Just this month, however, a man in a truck was caught driving through the UNESCO World Heritage Site, resulting in deep tire gouges across three of the glyphs. #COMUNICADO: Ministerio de Cultura denuncia penalmente a chofer de camión que ingresó a la Pampa de Nasca: https://t.co/SlcJeyYgMm #PrensaCultura pic.twitter.com/rdMf26Eo8r — Ministerio Cultura (@MinCulturaPe) January 29, 2018 “They are the most outstanding...

United Airlines Is Honoring This Man’s 19-Year-Old Ticket

Imagine finding an unused airline ticket underneath your bed that dated back to December 31, 1998. That’s exactly what happened to a man by the name of John Walker. While doing a bit of early spring cleaning, he came across a box that contained the ticket for a flight from Nashville to Sacramento. Attached to the ticket was a letter that said, “domestic wholly unused non-refundable ticket(s) can forever be applied toward the purchase of another domestic non-refundable ticket, for the customer named on the ticket.” So the big question was, “Does forever apply 19 years later?” It turns out it does. Source 1 Walker reached out to United, but was passed from agent to agent as paper tickets hadn’t been used in 10 years and nobody knew what to do with his. Finally, a customer service agent was a...

United Airlines Refused to Allow This Woman’s Emotional Support Peacock on a Flight

Animals are terrific in many ways, including the way they’re there for us during troubling times. When you’ve experienced a particularly grueling day at work, there’s your dog waiting for you by the front door, or your cat perched on the windowsill just waiting to snuggle. One woman, however, uses her pet peacock for some emotional support, much to the chagrin of United Airlines. It seems that United just has the cards stacked against them when it comes to their passengers. The woman was attempting to board a plane at Newark Liberty International Airport when she was stopped and told that she couldn’t bring her peacock with her. Even after insisting that she purchased a ticket for the bird, United stilled refused to allow it on board the flight. “This animal did not meet guidelines for a n...

This Russian Town Finally Saw The Sun After 40 Days In Darkness

People say it’s rough living in Seattle, but imagine living so close to the arctic circle that you go weeks with absolutely no sunlight. This is reality for residents of Murmansk, Russia. They recently took to their Instagram and various social media accounts to share how thrilled they were about finally catching their first glimpse of daylight — about 30 minutes’ worth — after what must have felt like an endless 40 days. Source 1 Source 1 This phenomenon is called polar night, but experiencing it for 40 full days is most definitely considered an extreme amount of time. It seems to be something of a tradition for the townspeople to gather at the city’s highest point, known as “Solnechnaya Gorka” (Sunny Hill) and witness the first sunrise together after a long polar night. While they’ll cer...

Scaling a bootstrapped business is next frontier of entrepreneurship for Evan Frank

Evan Frank was five years old when he first knew he was going to be an entrepreneur. While attending kindergarten, Frank crafted books and sold them to his teacher at a nickel to a dime a piece. “There was always this desire to build stuff,” he explained to me, and also clearly a desire to make some money on those projects, to boot. Frank, who lives in New York City, was a co-founder and eventual CEO of onefinestay, which sold in early 2016 to AccorHotels for $170 million. Now, he is embarking on the latest of his entrepreneurial endeavors, as the new CEO of Context Travel, a company that specializes in deeply researched tours in cities around the world. Until recently, the 14-year-old company was bootstrapped by its founders Paul Bennett and Lani Bevacqua, before raising $5 million in pri...

Purchase A Home In Italy For The Magical Price Of $1

If you’ve ever dreamed of living in Italy, then today is your lucky day! For only €1 — or about $1.20 — you can purchase your very own house in the small town of Ollolai, which is located in the region of Barbagia on Sardinia. However, there’s one small catch… While there are 200 homes available for that price each one is in desperate need of repair, so whoever commits to one also commits to a full refurbishment within three years of the purchase date. That’s going to cost you in the ballpark of $25,000. There’s a method to all this madness, though… Source 1 Ollolai’s mayor, Efisio Arbau, hopes to accomplish two things: Restore the town to its previous glory while keeping the historical integrity of it, and return its popular to what it used to be. In the past 50 years, it’s dwindled from ...
