Technical difficulties at BBC in June 2017 resulted in an impressive marathon-style news cluster-F where we got to watch the anchor have what looks like a silent existential conversation with himself for over 4 minutes. The interspersed "BREAKING NEWS" interjections give it a sense of timing fit for a sketch comedy show.

20 Tinder Users That Spread Love Or Naughty Banter Around The World

Tinder is filled to the brim with failed attempts from hopeless romantics. People either seem to use the app to break out the pickup lines they'd never use in real life, or to actually find a meaningful connection.

Government-Shattering Fart Halts Kenyan Regional Assembly For 10 minutes

Now this is our kind of politics. Here's the full BBC News story, but the title pretty much says it all. A regional assembly in Kenya's Homa Bay had to take a 10 minute break due to a particularly awful trouser-cloud someone laid in the chamber. Apparently there was a conversation over blame and an ensuing scramble to find some kind of air freshener, but the debate-stopping fart dissipated enough after a while for business to continue. We've read about farts shutting down job sites, but a fart that halt local government is a new high.

#GreenShirtGuy is an inspiration. He maintains his cool and proceeds to laugh his ass off amidst a passionate display of word vomit from the "Sanctuary City" Heckler who said that people need to respect the laws or get deported. Apparently he couldn't help his outburst of laughter over the plain absurdity of the situation. The #GreenShirtGuy has since then been identified as comedian and activist, Alex Kack.

We're pretty sure the idea was to show the dangers of an upcoming storm. The resulting prank is sort of jarring and kind of hilarious. We wish people were this weird on every news network.

If you didn't have a reason to like legendary actor Danny Trejo already, then how about him pulling a kid from a car crash? Trejo was an at intersection when an SUV collided with a car. The crash overturned the SUV, trapping a young boy and his grandma inside. Trejo sprung into action, unbuckled the boy with another bystander and kept him calm while firefighters arrived. Points also to the guy for doing the interview with no shirt on.

If you thought you were muddling through a tough Wednesday, sit back and count your lucky stars that you're not the guy who threw away his life savings (that he kept in a shoe box) of $23K. Ouch. 

Last Thursday this man from Ashland, Oregon accidentally threw away his life savings of $23K into the recycling bin. Upon realizing his dreadful mistake he immediately contacted Recology, which is a company that provides garbage service to over a million homes and businesses in Washington, Oregon, and California. The odds of anything shaking out in his favor from there were quite slim, but lo and behold he ended up getting the lucky break of his life. 

"We take quite a bit of material every day so the odds of finding that are not much better than a needle in a haystack," said Linda Wise, general manager of the Samoa Resource Recovery Center operated by Recology.

Miraculously $22,940 of his savings managed to stay in the shoebox without falling out. Now that is just wild. Maybe he won't be keeping his life savings in a damn shoe box for m

Galveston Police Issue Apology After Image Of Them Leading Black Man Behind Horse With Rope Goes Viral

Police in Galveston, Texas issued an apology after their officers on horseback were seen leading a black man by rope through the streets on Saturday. The 43-year-old man Donald Neely was arrested for criminal trespassing after having been warned by the cops a few times. 

Police claim that the two patrolmen didn't have any "malicious intent", and hadn't tied his hands with rope, but the picture circulating on news outlets suggests otherwise, and actually, it really just confirms that this was an unbelievable kind of cruel. 

The attorney for Mr. Neely's family says that the man is homeless and bipolar. His family hadn't seen him for several years until the photo went viral online.

Marshawn Lynch found himself in the middle of a heated confrontation with some angry football moms after they found out he'd been hurling "f-bombs" at their kids during a drill. In the footage you can see Marshawn Lynchexplain himself, and it looks like things ultimately get settled down and figured out by the end of the video. Definitely a little bit dramatic, but at least Lynch ran up there to make sure "they didn't throw dirt on his name."
