Florida Woman Pulls Foot-Long Alligator From Her Yoga Pants During Traffic Stop

quote [ The driver opened the bags near him, which contained clothes and personal items. The 25-year-old female passenger then opened the backpack at her feet, revealing 42 small three-striped mud turtles and one softshell turtle.

When Charlotte County deputies asked her if she had anything else on her person the deputies needed to know about, she pulled a foot-long alligator out of her yoga pants and placed it in the truck bed, according to the report. ]

I call your trouser-snake, and raise you a foot-long leotard-gator

Failed Airlines That Were Too Weird for This World

quote [ Flying can be an excruciating experience these days. The CEO of United Airlines recently admitted that by the time passengers sit down on his planes, they?re already ?pissed at the world.? But plenty of airlines have tried to make things more fun over the years, even if they were incredibly weird. So weird, in fact, that they went out of business. ]

I'll never fly S&M airlines again

Large, flightless bird attacks and kills its fallen owner

quote [ A large, flightless bird native to Australia and New Guinea attacked and killed its owner when the man fell on his farm in Florida, authorities said Saturday.

The Alachua County Fire Rescue Department told the Gainesville Sun that a cassowary killed the man Friday on the property near Gainesville, likely using its long claws. The victim was apparently breeding the birds, state wildlife officials said. ]

So in addition to the gators and the giant pythons and boa constrictors, they have ginormous t-rex like birds as well. Keep it up Florida - you've still got a ways to go to catch up to Australia, but having a goal is nice...By the way - I have 2 SILVER 1 month memberships available for gifting for the first 2 SE-ers that ask.

What it's like to travel on a stand-up airplane seat

quote [ First things first: Gaetano Perugini, engineering adviser at Aviointeriors, is keen to stress that the concept's not about creating "cattle class" and cramming in as many passengers in as possible. ]

I just wrapped on a long and stressful 7-day TV production gig punctuated by a 16 hour shoot on 4 hours of sleep with a fun moment where the craft service and camera departments were yelling at me simultaneously about things out of my control and I thought nothing could get me to smile today.

I was wrong.

Greetings, from the Desert of Ghost Ships

quote [ Only 30 years ago, this was home to our planet?s 4th largest inland water mass; an ancient sea so vast, even Alexander the Great wrote of his struggles to cross it; where fishing commerce boomed and holidaymakers once flocked to its seaside spa town. Now, for the first time in 600 years, the Aral Sea is (almost) bone dry, and the fleet of giant, rusted ships left in its wake have become some of the only proof of the past. ]
