This Woman Stopped A Carjacking By Leaping Onto The Hood Of Her Car

A woman jumped on the roof of her car to stop a thief who was driving it away—and believe it or not, this isn’t viral marketing for Wonder Woman. CNN got the insane video:

The woman on the roof of the car, Wisconsinite Melissa Smith, admits she’s “apparently a little” crazy. 

“This is what I’m doing,” she told CNN that she thought during her car leap. “You are not leaving with my car,  I’m not dealing with this sort of crap today, and that’s just what I did.” That’s right—her superhero move came out of pure annoyance, which is perfect.

“I don’t tolerate this sort of behavior,” she explained.

The carjacker’s reaction to her, as she screamed in his face from the hood of the car? “He laughed at me,” Smith said. In a few seconds, however, she apparently spooks him, and he gets out of her car. She then opens the front door and jumps into the moving vehicle.

The thief fled away for now, but Smith has her car back. How would you handle this situation?

Woman Orders Crop Top With Obvious Flaw And Discovers She's Not The Only One

Olivia Skuce, a 21-year-old from  Northern Ireland, recently decided to order a crop top from PrettyLittleThings. But when it arrived, she noticed a pretty hilarious flaw in the design, so she decided to share it with their customer support on Twitter…

Skuce initially thought she ordered the wrong size, or something from the kid’s section, but as it turns out, a lot of people were having the same issue…

And when we say a lot, we mean a lot

Judge Gets Into Hilarious Courtroom Exchange With Woman Fined For Parking 2 Seconds Early

The laws are set up in a way, it seems, that you can be technically fined or penalized for everything. Unless you’ve got tons of evidence proving otherwise like clear photographs with time stamps and all that fun stuff, a judge probably won’t rule in favor of you getting out of a ticket. You’ll have just wasted a day of work and feel like an idiot for having any hope and contesting the fine in the first place.

So at the end of the day, it’s up to the clemency of a judge on whether or not someone’s innocent or guilty. Their ruling is all that matters so if you have to take something to court, usually you have to just pray that you get a judge who has a concept of justice that isn’t just black and white.

Thankfully, this woman received a judge who wasn’t a stickler for the rules.

Becuase you can only imagine her frustration at being given a ticket for parking in a spot 2 seconds before she was allowed to. No, I’m not making this up.

The best part of the court interaction is that once the judge saw the time she committed the offense, he had some fun with it.

This Photo Of Hillary Banning 'Make Ejaculation' Surrounded By Woman Makes A Powerful Point

One of the first executive orders that Donald Trump signed in his first few days as President was a bill that would remove federal funding from organizations abroad if they not only performed abortions or even talked to expecting mothers about it.

Many people noticed that there was a startling omission from Trump’s photo-op with the bill that would have life-changing impacts on women all over the world: there wasn’t a single woman in the photo.

The absurdity of the photo was lost on no one.

So French Feminist group 52 (because France’s population is 52% female) made a parody news article with an altered photo.

The headline reads: “Breaking news: it is now forbidden to ejaculate outside of procreation in the United States.”

A member of 52 spoke with BuzzFeed regarding the widely-shared image.

“It’s a joke….to ridicule something that boggles the mind: For centuries, it’s been men who dictate women’s bodies. Women are told what they should wear, what salary they’re entitled to… Trump has only just become president, and the first thing he does is take a step backward by signing this piece of legislation. This picture of the president shows very well how men get to dictate the rights women have…It really wound us up…On social media, some people pointed out the fact that one would ever see a photograph depicting a group composed exclusively of women signing legislature over what men are allowed to do with their genitalia. That was our starting point. We thought, Hey, why don’t we make such a picture?”

In case you were wondering, the original photo was taken when Barack Obama awarded the Congressional Medal to WASPs, a group of female WW2 fighter Pilots.

Lady Liberty Will Be A Black Woman On New $100 Commemorative Coin

In celebration of the U.S. Mint and Treasury’s 225th anniversary, a new $ 100 coin was unveiled on Thursday. But, this coin is a little different. It’s the first coin in US history on which Lady Liberty will be depicted as a black woman.

C1_ih9NUsAEK3pW

Elisa Basnight, U.S. Mint chief of staff, said:

“As we as a nation continue to evolve, so does liberty’s representation. We live in a nation that affords us the opportunity to dream big and try to accomplish the seemingly impossible.”

The Treasury said in a statement that it was looking “to the future by casting Liberty in a new light, as an African-American woman wearing a crown of stars, looking forward to ever-brighter chapters in our nation’s history book.”

The coin is only part of a collection that will show Lady Liberty as Asian, Hispanic and Indian “to reflect the cultural and ethnic diversity of the United States.”

The 24-karat gold coin will be available for purchase in April and is meant primarily for collectors, but judging by the response on Twitter, they might have to make a few extra.

A Woman Left Her Purse In An Uber On New Year's Eve And The Driver Took It On An Adventure

Like many of us on New Year’s Eve, Imgur user  and his friend were flat out drunk. His friend was so drunk that she accidentally left her purse in an Uber. And the good thing about Uber is that you actually know who has your purse. 

She contacted Uber, and they arranged to have the purse dropped off the next day. But when she got it back, she discovered that the purse had been on a bit of an adventure since she last saw it. 

The post reads: “Friend left her purse in an Uber on NYE. Found some interesting pictures on her phone when she retrieved it the following day.”

Commenters were pretty impressed:

“To whomever did this: if you are female, will you marry me. If you are male, can we grab a beer sometime. It’s on me, you glorious bastard,” one commenter wrote.

“I would be simultaneously amused and angered,” another joked.

This Woman Found A Snake Wrapped Around Her Christmas Tree Decorations

Although I never grew up decorating Christmas trees, there’s nothing like gazing upon a well-decorated one to put me in the Holiday spirit.

Every time I walk through a Target or Michael’s I look at all the ornaments and start planning an imaginary tree in my head. How would I decorate it? Would I go all avant-garde and make a black and white tree with white decorations? Or would I go classic and cut down my own to bring it inside and do it up in red and gold?

Or would I just put a highly venomous snake on it, just for kicks?

That’s what happened to Cheryl, a woman from Frankston, Australia, who found a slithering surprise in her Christmas tree.

The photo was posted by Barry Goldsmith on his Snake Catcher Victoria Australia Facebook Page.

In an interview with Mashable, Goldsmith said it was the first time he’s ever seen a snake in a Christmas tree and a Tiger Snake, no less.

The snake catcher went on to say that people panic when they see a snake and even try to kill it by cutting their heads off, which is super dangerous:

“I’m all about stopping people from trying to hurt themselves. Usually people cut the head off the snake, and don’t realise it that its head is actually still alive for about 15 minutes … lots of people get bitten while trying to pick up the severed head of the snake.”

You read that right, these things can live for 15 minutes after getting their heads cut off. People on Goldsmith’s FB page were shocked at the find.

The snake was unharmed and successfully transported out of the woman’s home. Looks like folks in Australia who celebrate Christmas with real trees have more to worry about than just bugs. (h/t mashable)

Woman Shares Story Of How Her Ex-Boyfriend Ended Up With A Face Full Of Foot Dust

We’ve all had someone in some point of our lives that simply refuses to listen to what we have to say. They’re usually the people that end up getting the boot, and that was the case with Sarah Gailey and her now ex-boyfriend.

Now ‘foot dust’ is a rather odd term unless you regularly scrape down the callouses on your feet, which you really need to start doing if you don’t already. The texture is both grainy and airy, and if you miss whatever container you’re discarding the shavings in, the small pile of former you scatters all over the place and becomes even more difficult to clean.

With that in mind, check out Sarah’s story on how her boyfriend ended up with a face full of her relative’s foot dust.
