Bonehead Of The Day:
A Blackfoot, Idaho pilot missed the mark when attempting to drop 3-thousand ping-pong balls on attendees of Blackfoot Pride Days. Instead of landing over the event, the pilot dropped the ping-pong balls over the interstate. Inside each ball was some sort of prize, anything from candy to a $100 gift card. "It was ridiculous," said Blackfoot resident Sarah Taylor told the Idaho State Journal. "Kids and adults were actually running out on the freeway to get the balls." So there the pilot isn't the only dumb one...
Didn't Bible Class Teach You About Stealing
Detroit man Ramsey Fakhouri is, probably was, in a long distance relationship with an Illinois bank teller he met in Bible class. He wanted to propose, but realized he didn't have the money for a ring. So what did he do? He and some friends drove to his girlfriend's bank and robbed the joint...while she was working.

Leave The Flame Throwers To The Professionals
Spiders make humans do insane things. A West Seattle man has been battling a spider in his house for a while, and when he saw the eight legged guy in his laundry room, he decided the best way to get rid of it was with a lighter and a can of spray paint. He set his wall on fire and, like fire does, it spread. He didn't even own the place, either. It'll cost about $40-thousand to repair and another $20-thousand to replace the contents of the house.
We May Have A New Oldest Living Person
Remember a few weeks ago when we couldn't believe an American woman turned 116? She's got nothing on Jose Aguinelo dos Santos. The Brazilian man is allegedly 126-years-old. The "Telegraph" is reporting he received his birth certificate last month after living his entire life without any documents.
Santos' birthday is listed as July 7th, 1888 and has lived the life of a bachelor, never getting married or having any kids. He walks without a stick, eats four meals a day, is the "most with-it" resident of his retirement home, and has no health problems. An impressive feat considering he smokes a packet of cigarettes a day and has for the last 50 years. As for his secret to a long life, he says he doesn't have one. "The truth is that you just keep getting older," Santos explained. "You take each stage at a time."
Jose Robert Pires, the president of the retirement home where Santos lives, is going to do a form of carbon dating to verify the amazing age.
