Guns N Roses played Hannover, Germany last night and had a few delays...one of which lasted 90 minutes due to weather. For those who stuck around they got a surprise guest appearance from AC/DC guitarist, Angus Young! Check out some fan made video of Riff Raff and Whole Lotta Rosie!
DONALD TRUMP is courting controversy from liberals AND conservatives . . . for driving his golf cart ON THE GREEN. He did it on a course that he owns, but still, it's considered one of the biggest no-nos in golf. https://twitter.com/SInow/status/877908744344129536
There's video out of Florida of a man who tosses water from a bucket into a river . . . and when it makes contact something underwater goes nuts. Whatever the heck it is, it never surfaces so it's almost like some underwater creature from a cheesy B-movie. Some people think it's manatees, others say tarpons, and some think it's fake. Check out the video and decide for yourself.
Snapchat introduced a new feature yesterday (June 21st) called Snap Map, which lets you see where you friends are and vice versa, and also lets you see where the most Snaps are coming from at any given time. When you use Snap Map, you can allow all your friends to see your location, only some of them, or none of them, if you use Ghost Mode. Your friends show up on the map as their Bitmoji if they have the Snapchat app open, with their location only updated when they open it. In addition to seeing where they are, you can just tap a friend's Bitmoji on the map to start chatting with them. Snap Map also shows you where Snaps submitted to a public section called "Our Story" are coming from. If there are a lot coming from one place, there's usually an event or newsworthy happening going on there, and those moments are indicated by "heat" locations of spots of color on the map.

Toilet paper company Charmin has debuted a mobile bathroom to help out New Yorkers who need to go but don't have a place to do their business, and, because we now do everything with our smartphones, you just use your phone to order it up. The two-day promotion using the Van-GO mobile bathroom was held in select neighborhoods in New York City yesterday (June 21st) and continues today. Users go to CharminVanGo.com and after entering their first name, age and phone number are able to order a mobile bathroom. Comedian and actor Anthony Anderson is along to make the whole thing even funnier. (Mashable)
A 10-year-old boy made quite the entrance when several tough-looking bikers escorted him to Habourside Elementary School in Nova Scotia, Canada. Xander Rose had been the target of racial slurs over his indigenous heritage, insults, and even death threats by other students. His mother, fearing for his life, reached out to a children's advocacy group called Defenders of Children, which organized the bikers to help Xander. The members of various bike clubs gathered in a grocery store parking lot early Wednesday morning (June 21st) before riding to Xander's home to pick him up. When Xander arrived at school, the bikers walked him from the parking lot to the front doors while watchers applauded. (CTV News)
Iron Maiden ROCKS! You know it and I know it but, what do the kids think? Great to see some metal fans of the future. Hmmm, "Metal Fans of the Future"...sounds like a cool album title. Anyway, here's what the kids think.
Barbie's man, Ken, has expanded his look. Mattel has introduced 15 versions of Ken that include three different body types (slim, broad, and original), a variety of skin tones, eye colors, and hairstyles. Man buns, polka-dotted tees, and hipster glasses are all included in those options. While Ken has had some minor changes over the years, this marks his first major update in 56 years. Some of the new $9.99 Ken dolls were available in select shops and online stores yesterday (June 20th), Mattel said, but will be widely available July 8th. (USA Today)
Peter Criss, broke the news a few months ago that he would be retiring from performing live this year. This past Saturday, on June 17th he made his final stage appearance at the Cutting Room in New York. Check out video from the gig of Peter singing his most famous song.
Aside from being one of the most iconic soft drinks of all time, Coca-Cola is multifunctional. The bubbly beverage has proven to clean toilets, strip rust from bolts, and even remove bugs from a dirty windshield. Thus, it comes as no surprise that some bold "beauty enthusiast" decided to test Coke's fullest potential by dousing him or herself in the sweet, sticky liquid as a base for summer tanning.
In case you missed it, back in April, Burger King rolled out a FROOT LOOPS milkshake. And people must've really liked the idea of blending sugary cereal into sugary ice cream, because BK just went for an encore.
A new LUCKY CHARMS milkshake just went on sale at Burger King. It's made out of vanilla ice cream, a sweet syrup, and pieces of the oats AND marshmallows from Lucky Charms. Why bother with the oats?
Anyway, you can get them right now, and Burger King says they'll be available for a limited time.
Are you a big movie fan? Check this out...The mighty oak tree from "The Shawshank Redemption" is gone, but you can own a piece of it forever . . . if you're willing to shell out some serious cash. A website called Natural Wood Mirrors is selling products made of wood from the actual tree. Like keychains for the low, low price of $40 . . . or bottle openers for the paltry sum of $130. (???) But hey, the openers are shaped like the rock hammer that Andy used to dig his way out of Shawshank, so there's that. Or if that's out of your price range, you can get a mini rock hammer for $65. There are also bottles of sawdust in different sizes, ranging in price from $20 to 55 bucks. Now, if you've got deep pockets, you can get a copy of the letter Andy left for Red under the tree, engraved on that sweet Shawshank wood, for $250. Or there's a little end table-type thing that'll only set you back $2,225. There are other things too, but some stuff they were offering is already SOLD OUT. It should go without saying that these products are very limited. So if you're interested, you'd better act fast.
Science has proven it-- women's intuition is real. Specifically, women are better at reading people's subtle emotional cues than men are. Researchers from around the world showed 90,000 participants photographs of people's eyes. They were then asked to say what they thought that person's mood was. The result? Women consistently outperformed men. Researcher Katrina Grasby with Australia's Berghofer Medical Research Institute says, "We don't know what makes women better at reading emotions. The more interesting questions are, 'Why do people differ in their ability to read emotions?', 'What are the processes that are occurring on a neurobiological level?' and can the answers to these questions enlighten understanding of more complex psychological disorders?"

Before that attack on the GOP congressional baseball team practice on Wednesday, it seemed like nothing could bring this country together. But now there's this:
TED NUGENT has vowed to leave the hateful rhetoric behind. (!!!) You know, like how he told PRESIDENT OBAMA to suck on his machine gun . . . or invited HILLARY CLINTON to straddle it? Yeah, that's not happening anymore.
In a radio interview yesterday he said, quote, "I'm not going to engage in that kind of hateful rhetoric anymore . . .
"I just can't use those harsh terms. I cannot and I will not and I encourage even my friends (slash) enemies on the left in the Democrat, liberal world that we have got to be civil to each other . . . we have got to be more respectful to the other side."
He also promised to, quote, "avoid anything that can be interpreted as condoning or referencing violence."
So many people said it would never happen, but it's happening: Boxer FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR. and UFC star CONOR MCGREGOR will fight on August 26th. (Here's the official poster.)
It'll be a 12-round BOXING match with 10-ounce gloves, and they're holding it at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. They'll fight at 154 pounds.
Floyd has an undefeated record of 49 and 0, while Conor is 21 and 3 as an MMA pro. He's one of the biggest stars in the history of the UFC, but he's never boxed before, as an amateur or a professional.
Conor is already trolling Floyd. He Tweeted photos of them side-by-side, except he used a picture of Floyd's DAD. It's an age joke, since Conor is 28, and Floyd is 40.
GENE SIMMONS has done some cheesy, classless things, but even his biggest supporters couldn't possibly get behind this: Gene has filed an application to trademark the heavy metal "horns" hand symbol.
Seriously. He wants the EXCLUSIVE RIGHT to extend his forefinger and pinky in the name of rock and roll.
His application says he wants it for, quote, "Entertainment, namely, live performances by a musical artist; personal appearances by a musical artist."
If this insanity were to get approved, then no other music act would be able to throw up the horns onstage, or even during, like, the grand opening of a Costco, without the threat of being sued by Gene Simmons.
Although here's the kicker: The application has a picture and a description of the gesture he's trying to trademark, and it's technically NOT the Devil horns sign . . . because the THUMB is also extended.
So what he's really trying to trademark is the American Sign Language symbol for "I love you." (???) For whatever reason, that's the way he's always done it.
Whatever the case, Gene says he's been using it since November 14th, 1974, so that gives him dibs. But if he's claiming he did it first, he's dead wrong. And there's proof.
There's a band called COVEN. They're best known for the song "One Tin Soldier" from the 1971 movie "Billy Jack", but they were a SATANIC rock band that started out in the 1960s.
There is photographic proof of Coven's very sexy lead singer JINX DAWSON doing it during a show in 1967. There are also pictures of the band flashing the horns in albums they released in 1969, 1971, and 1974.
Of course, THEY'RE doing it right . . . with no thumb. (Here's Jinx's post on the matter.)
JOHN LENNON also flashed the horns a lot earlier than Gene. He's doing it in a picture of the BEATLES from 1967, and the cartoon version of John is doing it on the cover of the "Yellow Submarine" album, which came out in 1969.
What's funny about the band photo is that John is actually doing the "I love you" symbol . . . the exact one that Gene is trying to trademark.
If Gene somehow wins this trademark, it'll be interesting to see if it also applies to the "no thumb" horns. It shouldn't, and it would be poetic justice if it didn't, because that's the way the COOL kids do it anyway.
(Frankly, the guy who REALLY made the horns a thing in rock was the mighty RONNIE JAMES DIO . . . even if he didn't do it first. May his spirit haunt Gene Simmons until his dying day.)
Do you remember the classic Seinfeld, Keith Hernandez episode? Do you remember why Kramer and Newman were so upset by the very mention of his name?? It was 30 years ago today, Keith Hernandez spit on them with a "magic loogie"! Let's go to the video!
Bachelor In Paradise host Chris Harrison has issued a statement addressing the show being shut down after just a few days of production following allegations of misconduct by a contestant. Harrison's statement said in part, "Let me start by saying the safety and care of the cast and crew of our show is of the utmost importance to us. It is with this thought in mind that we made the decision to suspend filming. An investigation into the situation was started immediately. Warner Bros. is handling the details of that investigation. They're moving quickly to gather all the facts, and once that's done a clear concise decision can be made about where we go from here."
After urging fans to "be patient until the investigation is complete," Harrison added, "We're sorry for any inconvenience and disappointment this may have caused the cast, the crew and our loyal fans. It is my sincere hope that we can come to a quick resolution on this and get back to work very soon."
The studio suspended production on the show over the weekend due to an "allegation of misconduct," sending the cast home and fueling speculation that the season or even the show itself could be canceled.
The production crew allegedly filmed contestants DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios, both reportedly intoxicated, having sex in and next to a pool, but it was allegedly not clear whether Olympios was able to give consent.
Jackson has reportedly told friends and associates that he intends to fight the charges of misconduct.
Bachelor In Paradise's fourth season was set to premiere on August 8th on ABC.
Pizza and ice cream MIGHT be the two most popular foods in the country. But that doesn't mean we want them to get-it-on with each other.
An ice cream shop in Philadelphia called Little Baby's is selling a new PIZZA-FLAVORED ICE CREAM. Apparently it tastes like sweet cream mixed with tomatoes, basil, garlic, oregano, salt, and red pepper.
And some people order it on top of a slice of pizza, a la mode style.
(Here's a picture of the ice cream on top of pizza.)
A new study figured out a pretty simple way to trick your kids into eating more vegetables without complaining the whole time. Just jazz up the NAME a little bit . . .
Researchers at Stanford recently spent about a month changing up the signs next to vegetables in the cafeteria. And they monitored how many students ate each vegetable when they called it different things.
They tried boring labels, like "corn" and "green beans." They also tried things like "vitamin-rich corn" and "reduced-sodium corn." It didn't make a huge difference though.
But when they used labels like "rich, buttery, roasted SWEET corn," 25% more students ate it . . . and the servings they took were 23% bigger.
The recipes never changed. The "rich, buttery" corn was exactly the same as when they just called it "corn." And it worked the same way with other vegetables too.
So if you make something your kids hate like spinach, try calling it "sweet spinach" and see what happens. With young kids, you can have a little more fun with it if you want, and call it something like "Mom's Sizzlin' Sweet Spinach."
An artificial sweetener may save you calories, but it may also be deadlier, at least to bugs, than originally thought. Drexel University researchers found erythritol, the sugar found in Truvia, is actually an effective pesticide. In an experiment, fly larvae were almost entirely killed off after being fed Truvia, and adult flies produced eggs at a drastically reduced. Despite these findings, the Food and Drug Administration has deemed the substance to be safe for humans, saying that at the most, consistent consumption of the sweetener could have "minor gastrointestinal effects."

Every chain restaurant wants a pretty drink that goes viral these days. The newest attempt at such a drink is the "Liger Shake" by Arby's. The striped milkshake is made with orange cream and Ghiradelli chocolate, making it orange on top and brown on the bottom, plus a swirl of chocolate going up and across the glass. The new drink is available through this month. (Time)
Some clown-ass in a golf cart tries to go all Evel Knievel and "jump" a flower bed. He kind of succeeds, but everything in the cart spills out and he ends up sprawled out on the grass. He wasn't going very fast and his friends are laughing so he seems fine.
I grew up with the original Batman series in reruns in the 70s. There was nothing like that show! It was pure campy fun in the best way and no one could have played that character with such tongue in cheek genius like Adam West. You really got a taste of his sense of humor as Mayor West on Family Guy, but nothing shows you just how funny Adam West could be like these old Funny or Die bits. Enjoy!
Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence is unhurt after the private plane she was flying in reportedly suffered a double-engine failure and was forced to make an emergency landing in Buffalo, New York. Lawrence was flying home from visiting family in her hometown of Louisville, Kentucky when one of the aircraft's two engines failed at 31,000 feet. The second engine went out as the plane was making its landing, but the pilots still managed to get the aircraft safely to the ground, where it was met by emergency crews. (Deadline)

Some guy fires a gun at a refrigerator that's in a field and filled with Tannerite. He's behind a tree, which is smart, because the fridge's door is catapulted right at him and is stopped by a large branch. Although some people think it looks like it could be fake, it looks pretty legit to us
Some people always check the backseat of their car before driving, but this story may make you want to check your shoes before putting them on. Marnie Devereux posted a video to YouTube showing a tarantula slowly exiting her sneaker outside of her Yavapai County, Arizona home. (UPI)
This is Nuts! A woman in Houston was driving in her Audi over the weekend when she rear-ended another woman in an SUV. And clearly the woman in the Audi thought it was the other woman's fault, because she went into full-on ROAD RAGE mode. She got out of her car, ran up to the SUV, the other woman got out, and they started BRAWLING in the street. And while they were fighting, a random dude ran up to the Audi . . . and stole it. Another guy on the street was filming, and he got the brawl AND the theft on camera. The cops are investigating all of the various crimes but there's no word on whether anyone's been arrested. Let this be a lesson to you. Road rage should involve nothing more than a middle finger and car horn...don't get out of the vehicle! Let's go to the video!
A Texas dad attended his son's graduation proudly wearing a Pokemon tie the boy made for him in first grade. Eighteen-year-old Dylan Olivo tweeted a photo of him posing with his father, who is wearing a tie featuring a hand-drawn Pikachu surrounded by poke-balls. Olivo said he was "shocked" when his dad showed up to graduation wearing the tie and didn't even realize his father had kept it. (UPI)
What's the best beer in the world? More than 10,000 people voted online. And the ten most popular beers in the U.S. did NOT do well. The only two that made the top 100 were Budweiser at 69 and Coors Light at 71. Here are the top ten.

Wonder Woman is breaking records this weekend with an estimated $101.4M opening. With these numbers, Wonder Woman is powering past the first Iron Man ($98.6M), but still comes under single superhero origin stories like Deadpool ($132.4M) and Man of Steel ($116.6M).
Furthermore, the pent-up demand for a Wonder Woman movie and an extremely favorable audience reaction has observers predicting that the action film will have a strong run this summer.
It was a significant coup for Patty Jenkins, the director. Wonder Woman shattered the opening record for a female director, beating out the previous winner Fifty Shades of Grey, set by Sam Taylor-Johnson ($85.1M). It has been a good run for women recently, a week after Sofia Coppola's win at the Cannes Film Festival for her film The Beguiled.

There's a tweet going viral right now that took more than a decade of planning.
A dad named Jason Gayler from Alvord, Texas walked his daughter Brittany to her very first day of school back when she was in kindergarten, and took a picture. And last month, he walked Brittany to her very last day of high school and took another picture.
Brittany put the pictures of her and her dad on her first and last days of school on Twitter . . . and they've already been retweeted more than 13,000 times. (Huffington Post)
I guess when you finally decide to get your yard work done, you're not going to let anything get in your way.
A guy named Theunis Wessels from Three Hills, Alberta, Canada was mowing his lawn on Friday as a TORNADO passed through the area. And his wife took a CRAZY picture of him mowing with the giant tornado looming behind him.
But he says it was fine . . . because he was keeping an eye on it. (CTV) (Here's the photo.)
There's a guy in south Boston named Abu Musa, and he used to be a 7-Eleven franchise owner.
But he wound up having a falling out with the parent company over their policies. Specifically, because they FORCED him to sell hot foods like hot dogs and taquitos that no one was buying.
He says, quote, "They'd sit there on the rollers, no one would buy them, and every day I would throw out $200 to $300 worth of food that I had to pay for."
And then the company tried to force him to sell pizza and chicken wings too back in 2014, so he gave up . . . and after a legal battle, he lost his store.
So now, he's getting his sweet revenge . . . by opening his own convenience store across the street from his old location. And he named it . . . 6-Twelve. Those are his hours but, clearly, the similarity to "7-Eleven" makes it a declaration of war.
He says more than half of his customers are going to his new store, and he's got a great strategy for getting more. Quote, "I know the price of everything in that [7-Eleven]. So I sell the same things cheaper. And no hot food. Never."
Johnny Depp and Daisy Ridley both bring their star power to Murder on the Orient Express, based on Agatha Christie's mystery novel of the same name.

The trailer shows a murdered Depp and a handful of bewildered passengers.
Police last night (May 31st) released dashcam footage from Tiger Woods' DUI arrest in Florida early in the morning on Monday (May 29th). In it, a dazed and disoriented Woods is seen slurring his speech and unable to follow simple instructions, keep his balance, or walk a straight line. Jupiter police had spotted Woods' car parked on the side of the road with his engine running and found him sleeping behind the wheel. The more than 90-minute video begins with police approaching Woods' car and ends with him being brought to jail in handcuffs. He was released some four hours later. Breath tests showed Woods hadn't been drinking, and he said in a statement later that he'd had an "unexpected reaction to prescribed medications." Woods had back surgery last month, and will be out for the rest of the PGA Tour season.
