Twitter Thread: Woman Returns Home, Finds Raccoon In Bedroom

Haily Lliff had quite the scare when she returned home from a trip to New York. As it turns out a raccoon had made of a bit of an entrance, and then just decided to post up for a while. While the event itself is surprising already, it's also pretty wild that a couple other folks were keen on sharing their own experiences with raccoons breaking into their homes. 

A wild Twitter thread about a woman coming home to realize that a raccoon has posted up in her room.

It was no ordinary day at the Disc Golf World Championships at Fort Beunaventura Park in Ogden Utah. Yep, that's because disc golfer, James Conrad had to go and launch what'll rightfully go down in the history of disc golf as one of the most impressive shots of all time. The crowd absolutely erupts too.

Who would've known that oranges and balloons could create such destruction? Apparently they're anything but a match made in heaven.

Things That Are Way More Dangerous Than People Realize

Life is full of hazards and not every single one has a creepy warning sign to go with it. Even something as simple as a slug or a toothache is enough to put a person in the ground, and while it's unlikely to happen, it's important to know what we're all getting into on a daily basis. Stuff is just surprisingly dangerous, man.

Subway Under Fire For Iffy Tuna Sandwiches

Buckle up, because this could be experienced as a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for the hardcore Subway fans out there. Or maybe, as a ride or die Subway aficionado, you've long since come to terms with Subway's decorated past. And not the good kind of decorated past. In this case though, we're dealing with something particularly fishy. Yep, it's the tuna. Or rather, we wouldn't be right if we were to call it tuna. 

Apparently, a study conducted by journalist, Julia Carmel, at the New York Times ended up revealing that of the 60 inches worth of Subway tuna sandwiches that were collected, and then shipped off to a lab, no "amplifiable" tuna DNA was obtained. So, basically what is actually in those tuna sandwiches? Of course, Subway shrugged off all that investigative business and insisted that they're actually serving tuna sandwiches. 

There is a potential counterargument to be made that the NYT only tested 5 of the 15 species of nomadic saltwater fish. So, they might've missed something. Also, apparently the cooking process could be impacting the legitimacy of being able to obtain accurate results for when the Subway tuna is tested for tuna DNA. Even then though. Come on, Subway. While we're at it, it also turns out that Subway's flour recipe contains 10% sugar. If it seemed like their bread was uncharacteristically sweet, now you know why. 

An interesting story about how Subway's tuna isn't actually tuna.

TikToker @turtleimpaler had a video go viral, where he's shown explaining the process behind him accidentally learning how to speak English. Basically, one of the biggest takeaways from this video should be that cartoons can be wildly educational. Time for all those high school language classes to step their game up.

Well, these spectators were certainly treated to the show of a lifetime when a Turkish F-16 pilot decided to fly crazily close to where they were situated. I'm just wondering about what kind of damage was dealt out to those poor people's eardrums. That couldn't have been fun. Exhilarating for sure, but painful as well.

So, all we need is for Stephen King to crank out a quick short horror story that stars that second machine. It's actually impressive to see how much stupid has been packed into one machine alone. Like, dang.

You can tell that it's about to get very interesting and treacherous when the hydraulic press makes that weird noise, and the obsidian starts to "give." I mean, let's be real: obsidian put up one hell of a fight.

Mayor Destroys Only Green-Space Park, Town Members Abandon Town

Alright, there were doubts expressed in the comments section over whether or not this is a mere work of fiction. At the same time some folks stepped forward to provide pretty compelling points that this very well could've been a thing back in the day. Even if it's some creative writing that we have going on here, it's a pretty entertaining series of events. Talk about a collective power move. Basically, don't mess with people's parks, man. Especially if you're the mayor of a very small town, and run the risk of having that very small town's population just dip out. 

A crazy story about a small town taking revenge on park being demolished by abandoning the town.

You've got to appreciate how the Mama Bear just encourages the little ones to have the best time of their lives, and really enjoy the moment. The video also might be that much more enjoyable for you if you go ahead and press that mute button. The commentary is just a little distracting.

Some people freeze in the face of an adrenaline-charged crisis, and others act in such a way that people and animals' lives can end up being saved. The cousin of TikToker @bakedlikepie certainly assumed the latter more admirable stance. She didn't waste any time with taking care of business. We're just glad that everyone was able to get out of that dicey situation as soon as possible. It even looks like the bear was about to climb back over that wall again. Woof.

TikToker @torivile, made some waves on the internet after posting a video where she's shown exposing Starbucks for their store-bought lemonade and syrups. Honestly though, the reality is that every store can hit their low points where they simply run out of supplies. You wouldn't normally expect such a development from a place like Starbucks, but oh well, here we are.

AskReddit Thread: Sailors' Craziest Supernatural Stories

It's easy to forget about just how much craziness is occurring out in that big ole ocean. The idea of being far out at sea in the middle of night, and encountering some kind of sound that escapes all explanation is just a little bit unsettling. If anything these accounts from various sailors might inspire you to fully commit to never taking up with a sailing gig.

Many of us remember the viral sensation that was "Pizza Rat." Well, a new era has dawned upon us. This time around, right from the ever strange and occasionally entertaining world of TikTok we have a mouse who is absolutely getting their feast mode on at a Whole Foods. All seems to be normal enough until TikToker @definebritt zooms in, and the dirtier truth is revealed.

Jill Price managed to blow a whole ton of apprehensive journalists away when she went on to prove that she can indeed remember every moment from her life. I wonder if it's one of those things that you can just turn off and on at will (all the time), or if you randomly become completely drowned in tidal waves of memories resurfacing from the deepest layers of your memory banks at inopportune times.
