Driver Goes 115 MPH, Learns Lesson Through Creative Policing

When this cop caught a reckless and cocky driver going 115 MPH, he decided to let the kid's mom handle the situation. Context is key here as well, as the actual road didn't have a speed limit. And just cause there's no speed limit doesn't mean people should be out there tearing down the road over 100 MPH.

We've all had those moments where we've thrown the odds to the wind for some trivial purpose, like free-climbing up the side of a building just to retrieve a Frisbee. A lot of times we frankly don't get paid enough o put ourselves in as much danger as we do. What's for sure is that some people just don't give a heck.

Tumblr did a good thing with this fun and wild little story about a Professor who dodged ultimate danger, with some skimpy clothing and kindness.

Ominous Signs that Speak the Language of Fear

Some spooky signs and threats seem more cartoonish than others, but what these signs do is make you ask some deep questions about what had to happen for that sign to get there. There's surprise abandoned mine shafts, nearly invisible wasps nests, aggressive-ass geese, and unexploded munitions around every corner. The world has its fair share of uniquely spooky signs.

Stupid Ways People Started Fires

From a really early age, most of us are taught the extreme basics of fire safety. You'd be amazed at how many people think that flooding a room with oxygen or covering a fire with paper towels will put it out. Whether it's due to panic, carelessness or people just not knowing any better, firefighters have to save people from some really stupid situations.
