    It is not uncommon to see wedding dresses up for bid on eBay, but this beautiful Diane von Furstenberg number certainly stands out.

    The lace, size eight ‘Zarita’ dress was supposed to be worn in a wedding at City Hall in New York, but it was put up for auction after the owner and her Brooklyn based fiancé had split.

    The Metro reports that the owner is a 30-year-old British woman who wants to remain anonymous. She told the paper that, “while the dress still sits abandoned in the corner of her room, it acts as a constant reminder of what might have been. So although she loves it with all her heart, she has to let it go.”

    The original eBay post was titled “Rejected wedding dress seeks lasting love and holy matrimony.” Bidding on the dress has come to an end, reaching £1,150.00 ($2,242.60 CAD). 

    The eBay post, written from the perspective of the dress, began with a poignant anecdote: ”I was supposed to be worn at City Hall in New York. I was going to be the main attraction of a 60s

  • Utah school creates'Texting Lane' for phone-focused students. (Yahoo News)Utah school creates'Texting Lane' for phone-focused students. (Yahoo News)

    A new solution to a problem that has plagued students and school employees everywhere has been found, because we all agree that “there’s nothing worse than walking behind someone who’s texting.”

    Utah Valley University is giving students who can’t seem to look up from their phones long enough to see where they’re going their own designated lane, reports the Associated Press.

    The neon-green lanes painted on the stairs leading up to the gym were intended to be a fun way to brighten up the space and get the students’ attention, and that’s just what it did.

    A picture of the stairs divvied up into three sections – one for running, one for walking and one for texting – generated a lot of buzz after it was shared online.

    Tasia Briggs, 22, told AP that smartphone messaging – whether it’s through texts, Snapchat, Twitter or Instagram – is a big part of how her generation communicates, so it’s cool that the college is acknowledging it.

    Though the lames are limited to the school’s recreation

  • Naked masked man pours milk on himself and streaks through Walmart

    “They can go to jail, and they will go to jail.”

    It was just another normal day at Walmart when a man wearing a Halloween mask stripped down to his birthday suit, poured milk all over himself, and ran around the retail store yelling and screaming that he was on fire.

    After that… it was still just another normal day at Walmart.

    The video of the occurrence, that took place at a Kentucky location, was posted to YouTube, but has since been taken down because of the nudity.

    But unfortunately for the men involved, the local authorities did not find the gesture very funny.

    “I wouldn’t want to go in Walmart and see anyone running around naked,” Pike County Sheriff Rodney Scott told WYMT News. “So they need to go to jail.”

    Scott told the news network that both the streaker and camera operator are guilty of indecent exposure.

    “The first question I would have [for the streaker] would be: why would he want to do that?” he said, believing that the instance was planned.

    “They can go to jail, and they will go to jail.”

  • Cat clings onto plane, shocks pilot in hilarious video

    “I still don’t know if got in after the pre-flight or if I missed it."

    Pilot Romain Jantot had an unexpected passenger on his light-aircraft flight recently.Pilot Romain Jantot had an unexpected passenger on his light-aircraft flight recently.

    What appeared to be a standard flight had quickly turned into anything but when the pilot spotted an unexpected passenger on board.

    In a video posted on YouTube, a cat is seen crawling its way out of the aircraft’s wing as the pilot and his passenger fly a hundred feet from the ground. And they apparently had no idea the feline passenger was on board.

    YouTube user Romain Jantot, believed to be the pilot, uploaded the video on Sunday and it has already racked up over 270,000 views. 

    He was taking his passenger for a standard flight at a flying club in Kourou, French Guiana, when the furry feline appeared out of nowhere while they were in the air. 

    “I still don’t know if got in after the pre-flight or if I missed it,” Jantot said in the YouTube description.

    As seen in the video, Jantot and his passenger are taking off from the tarmac and cat-free. But well above the ground and about 40 seconds into the video, the cat’s head slowly appears from the plane’s left wing. It then crawls

  • Woman thinks her hands are Pac-Man characters after waking up from surgery

    “After my leg surgery, my hands were the Pac-Man characters. Nothing else to explain.”

    Jenn Peckham's post-surgery Pac-Man adventure avoided a scary ending thanks to mom. (YouTube)Jenn Peckham's post-surgery Pac-Man adventure avoided a scary ending thanks to mom. (YouTube)

    It's one of the most popular video games of all time, but it turns out Pac-Man can be rather scary when you've awoken from surgery convinced that your hands are the game's characters.

    This hilarious video captured the moment Jenn Peckham did just that.

    “After my leg surgery, my hands were the Pac-Man characters,” Peckham wrote in the description of the YouTube video. “Nothing else to explain.”

    In the video, Peckham, who’s perfectly recreating the “waka-waka” Pac-Man sounds, guides her ‘Pac-Man’ aimlessly and blissfully through the air.

    But anyone who’s played the 1980’s classic knows that trouble is always lying just around the corner.

    Peckham’s right hand quickly becomes her left hand’s worst nightmare, as it assumes Pac-Man’s biggest enemy: the ghost.

    “Here’s the ghost; it’s chasing you,” she warns her Pac-Man. Unfazed, the Pac-Man continues in its pursuit, and wanders closer and closer to the ghost, that is really just Peckham’s index finger. “No, it’s chasing you!”

    Tire debris, hurtling rocks, and the occasional off-course bird are enough to startle most drivers on a busy motorway, but what about the sudden appearance of a bouncing 60-inch saw blade?

    A driver in Chongqing, China, received a shock when a five-foot tall circular saw blade fell of the back of a truck, slicing into the hood of his car. 

    The man, known only as Mr. Xiang, told reporters he had heard a loud noise and saw the blade bouncing across the highway towards him, The Daily Mail reports. 

    According to The Independent, the blade lodged itself into the car, mere inches from the driver’s side, before Mr. Xiang skidded to a stop.

    The flatbed truck that held the blade crashed on the other side of the road, hurtling more blades off the back, but neither driver was injured.

    Chinese authorities are investigating whether the blades were secured properly, adding that if the blade had veered off its course, the accident could have been fatal.

    “He can pay for it.”

    Father’s Day is this weekend and while many are still hustling to find the perfect gift, these adorable kids sat down to answer a few very important questions.

    In the video, comedian Mark Malkoff sat down on a couch with a few kids to find out what they really think about Father’s Day. 

    Many of them didn’t know what Father’s day was and others commented on their dad’s sleeping habits.

    But when it came to gift ideas for their dads, these kids gave their honest answer. One boy told Malkoff he plans to get a spaceship for his dad, another boy planned on buying a screwdriver for his dad because he fixes things.

    One answer from a young girl was brutally honest yet funny.

    When asked what she planned to give to her father this weekend, the girl said she’ll start the day off by giving her dad a big hug and then tickets to Disney World.

    “You’re going to pay for a trip to Disney World?” questioned Malkoff.

    “He can pay for it,” she responded.

    But the sweetest moment came when Malkoff asked each

    A woman is bending over backwards to establish a new world record - by limbo dancing.

    Shemika Charles, from Buffalo, already holds a Guinness World Record for reaching the lowest height in limbo dancing by a female. She can get down as low as eight and half inches from the floor, or, about the height of a beer bottle.

    In a video released this week by Barcroft TV, Charles is seen limboing under her truck to set a new world record.

    “It takes a lot of concentration and a lot of balance and a lot of breath control,” the 22-year-old said.

    Her success has not come without hard work. The young woman has been practicing up to six hour per day for the last several years.

    Charles began her limbo career at the tender age of 14. She makes her living performing at NBA half-time shows and traveling across the U.S. showcasing her limbo dancing talent.

    Her unique skill surprisingly runs in the family. Her mother, Sherrie, was also a limbo dancer for 16 years before injuring her back. Knowing the

  • Ed Sheeran helps Canadian man propose to girlfriend battling cancer

    “It gives her something to look forward to, something to fight for.”

    A Saskatoon woman battling cancer received an unforgettable marriage proposal thanks to one of her favourite singers: Ed Sheeran.

    Pablo Benitez proposed to his girlfriend, Tanya Procyshyn, at Ed Sheeran’s show just one day before Procyshyn was scheduled to undergo surgery for a brain tumour, CTV News reports.

    But the dream proposal almost didn’t happen.

    Originally, the two weren’t fortunate enough to snag tickets to Sheeran’s sold out show. But after Benitez met Sheeran at a private function a few days before the concert, he told the musician his story. Without hesitation the popstar gave him two front-row seats to his show to help the dream come alive.

    During the concert, when Sheeran played Procyshyn’s favourite song, “Thinking Out Loud,” Benitez popped the question.

    In a tweet, Benitez shared a picture of him and his soon-to-be wife, and wrote “she said yes,” before thanking Sheeran for helping make “her wish come true.”
