Woman Thinks Mother-In-Law Poisoned Her, Follows Professional Advice And It Backfires

We've seen petty onion-based arguments with mother-in-laws, but this is a whole 'nother level. In this advice column, a woman was suspicious that her mother in law was trying to poison her. Prudence said she should get her husband to switch plates at a family function and see if the mother in law had any objections. The following-up details how he didn't believe her, so she switched the food anyway, and while it was confirmed that the mother-in-law had it out for her, the plan didn't make her husband believe her. If your mother-in-law is crazy enough to be a serial poisoner, maybe you should be wary of your husband as well.

We put a lot of faith in traffic lights, and when they fail, Jesus, it's not good. 

This is one of those situation where a malfunctioning warning light caused this terrible accident in Utah. Luckily no one was hurt in this real-life Michael Bay movie, but damn, this is one crazy close call.

Utah Transit Authority has said that they've "never had an accident like this before." Let's hope it's the last one because, whoa, it's a miracle no one was killed. Stay safe out there, kids.

Next time you buy a lottery ticket, maybe let the machine pick your numbers.

According to TIME, Dante Castillo from NJ swears by his lucky numbers, but it was when a clerk accidentally allowed the machine to generate his ticket that he hit it big. So ask yourself, are your lucky numbers worth $1-million, because his weren't.

It seems like everyone won in this scenerio. Well, almost. Castillo won the Cash4Life lottery, but he and his wife chose the lump sum of a cool million. The convenient store will get $10,000 bonus from the lottery officials for selling the ticket. And the machine who generated the ticket, nothing. Again, we're just digging our own grave when it comes time for the Great War between man and machine.

So what does this prove? Does luck exist? Why do we hold on to superstitions when it's clear the universe is left up to chance and coincidence? Oh, whatever. This guy lucked out.
