In the news, a man claims that he feared there was an intruder in his house, so he took actions to get away from the perceived danger and somehow ended up with a fish hook stuck in his butt. So naturally, he locked himself in a closet and started firing multiple rounds of his gun in an attempt to get police attention.
Uh huh. *tilts head sideways, thinking* Nah, I've got nothing. *shrugs*

Are you like me, who enjoys cute things with a little twisted sense of humor? If so, check out this video of a mama duck and her babies, getting blown over by gusts of wind. Hilarious. Unless you're against baby ducks getting rolled about. Then it's not funny at all. (except that it really is)
So have you ever found yourself planning a kid birthday party and you wanted a new, exciting theme? Why not host a Kidnap Party! Go on, you can read the description for yourself below. I'm sure all those kids had lots and lots of fun and won't need any therapy or anti-anxiety meds later in life.

And that's all the time I have for today. Meet me back here same time, same place tomorrow. Oh and next time you consider torturing someone... you know, just for the fun of it... skip the waterboarding and go right for the Barney soundtrack.
The United States military used a song from Barney & Friends to interrogate prisoners in the Iraq War.
How cruel. Early in the Iraq war, U.S. troops would subject Iraqi prisoners of war to prolonged listening sessions of the most annoying music they could think of. The playlist included Metallica’s “Enter Sandman”, the "I Love You" song from the children’s television show Barney & Friends, and the ubiquitous action movie soundtrack piece “Bodies”. The idea behind this strategy is to offend the prisoners and break their spirits to make them more cooperative during questioning.
Oddly enough, it works! It’s such a harsh technique that human rights organization Amnesty International warned that it may even constitute torture! A U.S. operative who went through “Barney torture” to test it out said “I never want to go through that again”.
The U.S. actually has a history of using musical warfare. In 1989, American troops blasted rock music to force Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega to surrender. You can read more about that here.
