Seals, the dogs of the sea, trained by Russian officials to be ruthlessly adorable soldiers of fortune. That said, it's pretty hard to look like ruthless military operative when you're this adorable:



There's also a precedence for trained animals in the Russian special forces. At least, according to the historically sound documentary video game Command and Conquer: Red Alert 2.

Paul Knight from the UK here ripped away a woman's bag (perhaps searching for the cheeky Nando's inside) while she was walking home with her husband. After he had left the scene he realized he dropped his phone along the way. And what better way to get back your lost goods than ask the police for help?

That did not end well.

The money quote, however, comes from the case's judge Edward Bindloss:

You dropped your mobile phone and in a rather unsophisticated act you telephoned the police and inquired if someone had handed it in. That is how you came to be arrested.


Don't Do That of The Day: The Weeknd Says Taylor Swift Couldn't Stop Stroking His Hair

Taylor Swift just can't keep her hands to herself.

Singer Abel Tesfaye, better known as the Weeknd, says that when he first met Swift she kept "petting" his hair.

He described the bizarre encounter with Taylor Swift in Rolling Stone:

"But the whole time she was talking," he says, "she was kind of, like, petting my hair? I think she was just drawn to it — she must have been a little gone off a few drinks. And of course I'm not going to be like, 'Hey, can you stop?' I mean, it felt good! But when she started petting my hair, that's when I was like, 'I definitely need a drink.'"

For those clueless individuals out there, touching a black person's hair is normally a cultural no-no. And it really doesn't help Swift's image when she also makes music videos like this.

Word of advice, Taylor. Next time—just don't.
