The 5 best things about the JetBlue flight attendant’s freakout

SlaterAfter a heated argument with a passenger, JetBlue flight attendant Steven Slater launched into a curse-filled tirade on the PA system, then escaped the plane on the emergency slide. Oh, it gets better.

  1. Before he exited, he grabbed a beer from the beverage cart.
  2. After sliding down the emergency chute, he got on the Air Train, removed his company tie and threw it to the ground.
  3. NBC New York: “When authorities found Slater he seemed to be in the midst of having sexual relations.”
  4. When the cops came to get him, a neighbor working on a nearby roof said he “had a smile on his face when the cops brought him out, like, ‘Yeah, big deal.’ ”
  5. He got to do what so many people wish they could do — tell off a rude customer, then quit, triumphantly. Which makes him, for today at least, an Internet folk hero.

Woman Calls 911, Asks For Date

Calls 911A Norwood Ohio woman faces charges after she allegedly called 911, and asked dispatchers for a date.
Court documents say 43 year old Bernadette Music called 911 a week ago Monday, four to five times, asking two dispatchers if they’d like to go on a date with her. Officials say Music was intoxicated. When police went to the door of her home on Maple Avenue, she refused to come out.

Officials also say she urinated in the hallway of her apartment building at some point during that day.

Music is charged with two counts of disorderly conduct. 

How drunk do you have to be to pee in your hallway?

HailstoneA giant chunk of hail that plunged into the prairie town of Vivian, S.D., last Friday was confirmed today as the heaviest hailstone ever recorded in the United States.

The world record belongs to a 2.25-pound hailstone that fell in Bangladesh on April 14, 1986, according to Paul Hudspeth, a meteorologist at the National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C.
