Here's a dad's masterfully designed Basketball Loophole and these other loopholes people exploited for years.

So, it's pretty much a fact that this might be the best candy in the dang world. Anyone who has ever messed with the sour Altoids knows that they're on a level of their own. The fact that this guy is bringing back the infamous Altoids Tangerine sour candies is quite exciting.

Just imagining a scenario where you're forced to make a landing in the middle of a crowded road would be enough to bring a whole lot of people's brains into a panic. However, it's clear that this pilot's operating on a different level. Maybe after enough training you can just sink into a stress free automated existence where you don't think twice about the implications of not nailing a landing on a crowded road.

Charlotte Magician Chris Hannibal really knows how to take his audience for a ride.

Seriously, impressive stuff.

Greedy Landlord Raises Rent So Tenants Don't Renew Lease, Gets What He Deserves

The key to enjoying this immensely satisfying tale of pro revenge is to read it in an Australian accent (or your best crack at it). Once you've checked that box off, it's time to dive on into yet another tale of revenge where a landlord gets too big for his britches, and then it ends up completely blowing up in his face. It honestly sounds like things couldn't have gone worse for this guy. And it also sounds like he deserves it. For another dramatic revenge tale involving a shady landlord check out the time that a landlord tried to backtrack on returning a deposit, until karma came right back around to collect.

Massive shout out to the coast guard operator for maintaining a truly heroic level of calm. This paddle boarder was understandably shook from the moment the call started. However, as these coast guard operators are trained to do, nothing short of an unwavering sense of calm was delivered from the other end of the line.

Homeowner Gets Fed Up With HOA Complaints, Malicious Compliance Ensues

This isn't the first time that we've read about the HOA driving an otherwise completely peaceful homeowner just a little bit crazy. Unfortunately, the HOA seems to attract all kinds of Karens and petty tyrants that get caught up in wielding whatever "power" they have. So, it's nice enough to see someone successfully waste the HOA's time. I wonder just how much of that time that they'll be able to successfully end up wasting. For another tale of malicious compliance check out the time that a customer asked a restaurant to cut a burrito in half, and then how the restaurant maliciously complied.

This guy has a lead pipe for a spine. He can't slip any discs cause they're already lubricated with WD-40. You might be asking yourself: is that fridge empty? Yeah, it probably is, he probably already ate all the metal inside of it. Then he huffed all the Freon before breathing it out as pure wood smoke.
