And They SURVIVED!

Two women were trespassing on a railroad bridge in Indiana a couple of weeks ago when a freight train caught up with them.

The video from the Indiana Rail Road Company was released yesterday, and it’s horrifying.

You can hear the freight train whistling frantically as the women scramble in front of it to get off the bridge and the tracks.

Just as one woman looks like she’ll be able to jump to safety, the other one falls down right in front of the train, and her friend goes to help her. That’s when they disappear from view.

Bottom line: both women walked away from the incident. Okay, more like they ran away from it, and drove off in a nearby vehicle.
The local sheriff has identified them, and is now tracking them down, treating the incident as a crime.

After getting run over by a freight train, I can’t imagine that handcuffs are really going to scare these women…

Get Ready to Cringe!

This happened two weeks ago, but it’s really gotten some traction on the internet in the past few days.

A young girl at the Lava Hot Springs water park in Idaho was on a high-dive platform when she was distracted by another diver rushing past her.

She panicked – it appears – and tried to stop her own dive.

Momentum and gravity took over, and she went off her platform and bounced off the platform below before plunging to the water.

Amazingly, she just hurt her finger – but I’ll bet it’s a long time before she attempts another high dive.

Zac Efron's Social Lubricant

Zac Efron is the first celebrity to appear on NBC’s new reality show, Running Wild with Bear Grylls, and for some reason, took that as the opportunity to open up about his struggles with alcohol and drugs.

It’s a two-day survival show, throwing the celebrity into the wilds to see how he or she can handle it. Bear is along for the trip, plus a camera crew.

And during the filming, Zac confessed to Bear that the whole Hollywood thing overwhelmed him.
He said the pressure of being out there with the press and the people had him reaching for a social lubricant.

Whatever it was, he didn’t name it, but you can bet that will be the new buzz word around Tinsel Town.

I fully expect a bar along Sunset to change its name to Social Lubricant before the week is out. You watch.

5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, 1 Naked Dude

A guy in Texas was trying to save some money on the cost of selling his house.

So he took his own pictures of the interior of his house to post online.

He didn’t know when he posted it, but one of the bathroom pictures showed him in the mirror, standing in the corner, naked, while taking the picture.

The flash blurred out his face, but everything else was there on display.

Ironically, the website he was posting to was hotpads.com.

Maybe he knew he was in the picture after all, but was confused about what site he was posting to…

Peyton Planning to Dance with the Stars?

At the Denver Broncos practice facility yesterday, quarterback Peyton Manning got hit with a bad case of happy feet.

Someone blasted the unofficial fight song of his alma mater, the University of Tennesse. It’s a country tune called “Rocky Top,” and Peyton just had to bust a move.

Check out wide receiver Wes Welker (#83) in the video, sort of spinning like he just got off a roundabout at a playground.

Warning! This is a Warning!

Someone posted a video that captures the sounds of Chicago’s tornado sirens to Facebook the other day.

You have to give it a listen.

Imagine waking up to something like that.

I wouldn’t know if it was a tornado or whales in heat.

Interesting, if nothing else…

Fire Your Scout, Boys

Some robbers got more than they bargained for recently when they tried to grab a bank bag from a convenience store clerk in Houston.

The attempted grab happened in the parking lot, but inside the store, another clerk saw the whole thing and jumped to the rescue.

The clerk, much to the surprise of the thieves, is a five-time mixed martial arts fighter champion.

After a flurry of kicks and punches, the thieves jumped into their SUV and took off, leaving one of their accomplices behind.

The MMA clerk kept that guy down until the cops arrived.

Check out the video in the news story – and the best part might be the way one of the store’s customers describes the whole thing.

Sarah Palin, 24/7

So, apparently Sarah Palin’s a hot property in the world of social media. So why not launch her own internet channel?

For those of you who want 24/7 access to the former governor of the 49th state and John McCain’s game-changer – don’t everyone raise your hand all at once – you’re going to want to sign up for SarahPalinChannel.com.

It went live on Sunday, and she promises that there won’t be any of the “media filters” which her people disdain.

And you can get your browserful of Sarah Palin for just $9.95 a month, by subscription.

She must have gotten her inspiration from Vince McMahon’s WWE Network, which is doing so very well.

Yes, that’s sarcasm.

GOT Bloopers?

Everyone loves a good blooper, right?

But until HBO released it over the weekend, I had no idea they ever made mistakes in the shooting of Game of Thrones.

Guess what? Mistakes are made, and plenty of them.

For those missing their weekly dose of the comings and goings in Westeros, I present the GOT Blooper Reel, from Season 4. They shared this over the weekend at Comic-Con.

Make sure you stay for the end – you don’t want to miss Jamie and Tyrion’s big courtroom entrance.

Queen Bey Meets Shakespeare - Sort of...

Beyonce is a legitimate queen of the music world. Her songs sell millions, her concerts sell-out.

But has anyone ever tried to breathe life into the lyrics of her songs in monologue form?

Why yes, someone has. Actress Nina Millin has done just that, with The Beyoncelogues.

There’s a handful of them out there – the most recent add is "Single Ladies."

Check it out. And check out Nina, if you like, on Twitter.
