Woman Sets Vending machine on fire
We’ve all been there, put our money into a pop machine and your pop doesn’t come out. Or in this case, no pop and no money returned either. The worst, right? Well, this woman was so mad when this happened to her, that she decided to set the machine on fire!
I guess simply going into the ‘Piggly Wiggly,’ and asking employee to get her money back wasn’t an option. Yes, you read that right, the store that the machine was at, is called ’Piggly Wiggly,’ it’s a US grocery store chain.
Honestly, you can’t make this stuff up.
Dude, Where’s my car?
A man in Germany got wasted one night in December 2010, and forgot where he had parked his car. After searching where he thought he parked it, he called the police and said it was missing. Two years later it was located just a few kilometers away from where he thought it would’ve been.
I can’t imagine being that drunk to forget where I parked my car. I guess I’m assuming he parked it sober and then drank… Must’ve been some strong beer!

Yea, that made you read right? Well get your mind out of the gutter scumbag because the women of Comic-Con are smart and respectable. But if we’re going by facts then yes, this piece by SimplePickup starts and ends with a motorboat. He’s basically chronically drawn to cleavage.
He interviewed Jessica Nigri and a bunch of other costumed ladies for an episode of Drunk Times with Hot Girls called “Comic-Con and Nerds.” Basically he boozes himself up before asking the ladies awkward (but amazing) questions about penis size, superhero tricks in the bedroom, schexy costumes (Obama anyone?) and the probability of sex later that night.
You better watch where you’re going. Something creepy might just come out to get you.
While in San Diego for Comic-Con, a man dressed as a zombie soda jerk decides to make unsuspecting strangers on the street shriek with terror as he approaches them.
Yikes. Looks like Joseph Gordon-Levitt got into a bit of trouble for his comments during a Comic-Con panel this week.
Promoting his new film Looper with co-stars Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt, Gordon-Levitt tread into dangerous water when he complimented Blunt’s sense of humour by saying: “She’s funny…and let’s face it, most pretty girls aren’t funny.”
But while co-star Blunt tried to mask her shock compounded by the moderator’s attempt to joke about how pretty women don’t need to try to be funny, the 50/50 actor quickly backtracked and said, “I don’t want to make sweeping generalizations.”
I know we all say a lot of stupid things in life, but I really hope you didn’t mean that. There are several gorgeous and hilarious women in the world! Think Emma Stone, Tina Fey or Mila Kunis! Even your pal Zooey Deschanel is quite funny as well.
And besides, the idea of beauty is subjective.
Skrillex is joining in on the magic of Disney.
Announced on Thursday during Comic-Con, director Rich Moore announced that Skrillex will be writing music for his upcoming Disney animation film ‘Wreck-It-Ralph.’
Calling the DJ “one of my favourite performers.” Moore also gave attendees a 10-minute preview of the film, which is based on vintage video games and includes characters from Super Mario Bros., Pac-Man, Sonic the Hedgehog and Mortal Kombat. John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman and Jane Lynch are just some of the actors providing voices for the animated characters.
While Skrillex hasn’t revealed what the songs will sound like for ‘Wreck-It-Ralph’, the dubstep artist will also be composing material for upcoming film Spring Breakers, which stars Selena Gomez, James Franco and Vanessa Hudgens.
But don’t expect to get your headbanging on in the theatre. At the time of the announcement, he tweeted, “it’s more or less traditional scoring…dont expect dance floor bangers!”
While Disney and Skrillex seem like odd pairing, I can’t help but be excited. It’ll be interesting to see what he comes up with.

Who: Kristen Stewart at Comic Con
Why we love it: Kristen exudes coolness with her wind-swept waves, casual T-shirt and stretch skirt. She epitomizes street style by completing her look with strategically undone high tops. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns and add vibrant pops of colour to this look. Stack your arms with bangles and you are ready for any summer festival.
Kiefer Sutherland, who plays Jack Bauer on Fox drama 24, made an appearance at Comic-Con in San Diego Friday, reports TMZ. He discussed the future of the show, which takes place in real time.
“I don’t know with regards to ‘the last season’ or anything, I really don’t,” Sutherland told reports after the 24 panel Friday. It is the last season that I’ve been contracted to do 24, but I really don’t know. We’re so focused on making season eight. But obviously the requirements would be that the writers felt that they could really bang it out. If Howard [Gordon] came to me and said, ‘The way I saw those last scenes play, I have an idea for season nine that would be unbelievable,” I would have to listen to him for that. I think we’re all very aware of wanting to protect what we believe is a very strong and important legacy that is 24. All of those things. Again, the choices to do or not to do it have nothing to do with my contract, have everything to do with whether or not an audience still wants to watch it and cares and whether or not we feel we have something to offer.”
Microsoft has announced in tandem with top anime studios that they will be creating a set of new original short films taking place in the Halo universe. This new project, called “Halo Legends”, will bring the Sci-Fi hit into a whole new world of beautiful moving art and crisp animations.
Officially debuting at Comic-Con today in San Diego, Halo Legends is being produced by Microsoft’s 343 Industries (which explains why they patented the name 343 Industries recently) and will have anime legend Shinji Aramaki on board for creative direction as well as Mamoru Oshii. Read more…
Unless you?ve been living under an avalanche of comics in your parents basement, (and some of you probably are) you would know that tomorrow is the beginning of the grand-daddy of all comic book conventions?The San Diego Comic-Con International! This is the biggest and most thorough comic convention in the world; everything a fanboy could want is under one gigantic roof. There are so many things to see and do that a newbie to the convention experience is likely to hyperventilate, pass out and die from the all out sensory assault, so I decided to put a list together that might help you along your kid-in-a-candy-store way.
1. Bring a List- There?s no way in krypton that you?re going to be able to see and do everything even if you?re staying for the full four-day event. I suggest you do some pre-con strategizing and make a list with your top priorities at the top and your low priorities at the bottom. Also make sure you get an advance copy of the map so you can find out where all the stuff you want to do is, and get there a lot quicker.
2. Bring a digital camera and a sketch pad with pencils and pens-There is absolutely nothing worse than standing in front of your favourite superstar artist or writer, or getting a kiss from a hot celebrity guest and not having a camera. Make sure you bring it and make sure it?s digital so you don?t have to worry about the film and you can see the results of your labour immediately. However, if by the time you read this, you don?t have a camera, make sure the guy behind you in line does, and he can take the picture. Also, if it?s digital, he can email the pic to you personally and if not, it?s snail mail for you buddy. There are times, during lulls at a particular guest?s table, that if you ask really nicely, he might give you a free sketch of anything of your choosing. During those times, wouldn?t it suck if you didn?t have paper or a pencil? so bring them, and never get caught in an awkward spot.
3. See Stan ?Da Man? Lee-He makes a cameo in Fantastic Four, but there?s nothing like seeing the father of Marvel live and in person, and you can at this year?s con. Seeing Stan is more important now, than it ever was because with Will Eisner gone, Stan is the last true father of comics left, and he isn?t getting any younger.
4. The Eisner Awards-This year is the first time the Oscars of the comics industry will be without their namesake, but that doesn?t mean it still isn?t a must see event. This year?s nominations are some of the toughest competition yet, with Brian K. Vaughn (Y the Last Man, Ex Deus Machina) cleaning up in the writing department and Frank Quitely (Bite Club, WE3) showing them how it?s done in the art department. There?s also a new category for best web comic. Deus Ex Machina and Astonishing X-Men have the most nominations of any book overall.
5. Wolfman & Perez reunite for New Teen Titans 25th Anniversary-The duo behind the most popular incarnation of the Teen Titans are back in business for one weekend only. It is their grouping of the Titans that is featured on the Teen Titans cartoon show, including, Cyborg, Robin, Starfire, Beast Boy, Raven, Wondergirl, Kidflash and Superboy. When they first came together, DC was in a sales slump and now the titans have their own very strong title written by Geoff Johns and their own toyline. The titans have come along way, so pay your respects to the guys that gave them to us.
6. Free Exclusives-This year?s free swag includes, a Sin City ?Bloody Marv? action figure, Peanuts T-shirts, a ?Frosted Subzero? Mortal Kombat action figure and a Hellboy ?Tiki? mini-manquette. If they?re giving it away, make sure you?re taking it off their hands.
7. Go to the Panels and Demos-From how to set up your portfolio to the skinny on internet weblogs and the latest preview of what?s hot at your favourite comic book publishers. Hit as many of these as you can because they?re taught by the pros and you might learn something.
8. Bring an Empty Extra suitcase, Food, Medicine and Something to do While Waiting in line. Bring your own food because con food can be pretty scary most of the time. If you eat from the vendors, you?ll be using a lot of medicine, so guard against an upset stomach and also, make sure you?re properly hydrated. Get an empty suitcase to take home the remnants of a spending spree and play cards with your line-mates because chances are, you?re going to be with them for a while.
9. Hey, You Never Know!-Last year, the entire cast of Fantastic Four showed up to pimp the movie?s release, as well as, the cast of V for Vendetta. In the end, you can?t predict who?s going to show up at the Con and what they?re going to bring. There is a rumour that Tim Burton will be promoting Corpse Bride, so if you hear any strange announcement, get yourself over there as fast as you can.
10. Don?t Bring your Girlfriend-As much as we think thumbing through the racks with other sweaty geeks is fun, face it guys, most girls would rather hang themselves than spend time walking around with you at a Comic-Con and it doesn?t matter how many times you?ve tried to get her into comics. There is one exception to this rule, if your girl decides to enter the Masquerade Costume Contest, please for all mankind let her enter, how else are we supposed to see beautiful women in leather body suits with cat ears and star-spangled booty shorts?
