Just wait a few hours...: Monique Armstrong simultaneously wins best, and most impatient, sister of the year. The 20-year-old climbed over razor wire to break into the Mesa County jail so that her 18-year-old brother, who was charged with a drug offense, would be set free. She got her wish, being booked on charges including criminal tresspassing, but if she just could have waited, it wouldn't have been necessary. Her brother Michael was due to be released just five hours later.
You Deserve A Bop!
The Toronto Public Library is on a mission to ban a book they consider dangerous..."Hop on Pop" by Dr. Seuss. The book “encourages children to use violence against their fathers,” according to the complaint and in addition to giving an apology to the dads of Toronto, the complaint calls for the library to "pay for the damages." Thankfully, the library opted to keep the book, because they're not complete idiots.
Star Wars Cast Revealed
It looks like the force is with us. The cast list for "Star Wars: Episode VII" has been released and it's mixing some new actors with the classics from the franchise.
John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow will join original stars Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the next installment of the "Star Wars" franchise.
The details of this movie have been kept pretty tightly under wraps, but Disney chief Bob Iger had said previously that episode seven will take place 30 years after 1983's "Return of the Jedi." The movie is expected to hit theaters December 18th, 2015.
Man Banned From Blasting Celine Dion's My Heart Will Go On After Complaints
A British man had his audio equipment confiscated after his neighbors complained about him constantly listening to Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On.”
The Medway Council found that Gareth Davies violated a noise abatement notice six times and confiscated his 3D TV, laptop, speakers and a PlayStation 3.
Davies, who also listened to James Brown's “Love Machine” and the theme tune to Toy Story, said that he was the victim of “a witch hunt.”
The council allowed Davies to keep his iPhone and MacBook.
"It only takes one complaint, as in this case, and we will act,” the council's portfolio holder for community safety, Peter Hicks, told the BBC. “People have the right to lead a peaceful existence without it being ruined by loud music. We won't tolerate this sort of behavior and anyone who blasts out music or creates other noise nuisance should let this be a warning to them."
The 47-year-old can apply to get his stuff back after 28 days.
