Bonehead Of The Day:

A Chicago area man was busted for robbing banks after posting pictures of himself on Facebook wearing his bank-robbing disguise.

He wore a skin-tight black skull cap and a Bulls hat when he robbed a couple of banks. Unfortunately for him, he uploaded pictures of himself wearing the same stuff on Facebook, under his real name.

The FBI matched pictures from his page to security footage from the robberies after someone tipped them off that he was bragging about sticking-up banks.

He made off with a combined total of just over $4 grand, but now faces $750,000 in fines and 60 years in jail after pleading guilty.

Bonehead Of The Day #2

A man in Miami posted a picture of his dead wife on Facebook-- and admitted to killing her

The picture shows the 26-year-old woman bent over backwards at the knees with her head in the corner of what appears to be a kitchen. Her left arm is covered in blood and blood appears on her face as well.

The 31-year-old man admitted to killing his wife writing, "I'm going to prison or death sentence for killing my wife love you guys miss you guys take care Facebook people you will see me in the news."

He added "my wife was punching me and I am not going to stand anymore with the abuse so I did what I did I hope you understand me." 

The man turned himself in to cops after confessing to his dad. 

The woman's 10-year-old daughter was home at the time of the shooting but wasn't injured.

Shark Scientists Would Like You To Stop Calling Them Shark Attacks

A group of shark scientists is asking the media to stop using the phrase "shark attack" when referring to incidents of sharks biting humans. 

The group is known as the American Elasmobranch Society, and they have sent a letter to The Associated Press and Reuters urging them to be more accurate when describing human-shark relations. 

In the letter, the group says the media uses "the term 'shark attack' in a sensationalizing manner" and "can reinforce misleading stereotypes of shark behavior and may undermine public support for shark conservation."

Instead of using the loaded phrase, they prefer that these phrases be considered as replacements:

1. Shark sightings: Sightings of sharks in the water with no physical human–shark contact.

2. Shark encounters: Human-shark interactions where physical contact occurs but no injury takes place. 

3. Shark bites: Incidents where sharks bite people resulting in minor to moderate injuries. 

4. Fatal shark bites: Human–shark conflicts where serious injuries take place as a result of one or more bites on a person, causing a significant loss of blood and/or body tissue and a fatal outcome.

(Do You Believe) Angel Priest Visits Accident Scene

A so-called angel priest visited the scene of an accident in New London, Missouri.... and seemed to make things better. 

A 19-year-old woman was involved in a bad crash and a priest showed up out of nowhere and sprinkled anointing oil on the woman and two emergency workers.  He said a prayer and disappeared. 

Things weren't looking good for the woman but after the priest showed up, her condition improved and she survived. 

The woman's mom says the priest was an angel .   Somehow, he does not appear in any of the nearly 70 photos of the scene.

Sweet News!  Big Breakfast & Desert Helps Fight Obesity & Disease

Researchers found that "eating breakfast like a king and dinner like a pauper" protects against diabetes, hypertension and heart disease.

People who eat their largest daily meal at breakfast are far more likely to lose weight and waist line circumference than those who ate a large dinner.

People who eat a larger breakfast that includes a dessert item like a piece of chocolate cake or a cookie, also had lower levels of insulin, glucose and triglycerides throughout the day. That translated to a lower risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol.


People in the big breakfast group also had have significantly lower levels of the hunger-regulating hormone ghrelin, which means they had less desire for snacking later in the day.

Now Trending:  Walmart Ballpits

Now that Vine videos exist, tweens across America are coming up with "clever" new memes and hashtag trends to amuse themselves between homework and chores.

The latest hashtag to sweep the tween nation is #ballpit - a game that involves crawling into the ball container at a local Walmart and diving in. The end result: balls, of all shapes and sizes, roll around the store.

The videos are funny to watch, but the Walmart workers who have to clean up the balls aren't amused.
