If you plan to line up early for Black Friday, try not to become a statistic. Specifically, one of THESE statistics.
According to the website BlackFridayDeathCount.com, there have been seven deaths and 98 injuries on Black Friday. The stats date back to 2006 when the sales really started taking off . . . and claiming victims.
The most recent death was in 2013, when a teenager in North Carolina was driving home from some late night Black Friday shopping, and fell asleep at the wheel.
There were five people hospitalized with injuries last year: One in Pennsylvania, two in California, and two in England. Yeah, even they're getting in on the chaos now.
Michael B. Jordan is Adonis Creed, the son of Rocky's friend Apollo Creed, who asks Rocky to train him so he can live up to his dad's boxing legacy. Phylicia Rashad plays Apollo's widow, and Sylvester Stallone returns as a very old looking Rocky Balboa.
Believe it or not, this is the SEVENTH movie in the "Rocky" series. It's also the first that wasn't written by Stallone, and the first where Rocky doesn't have to fight.
At 69, Stallone is now the same age Burgess Meredith was in the first "Rocky" back in 1976. And Rocky trains Adonis at a gym called Mickey's, named after his own trainer.
It's written and directed by a guy from Oakland named Ryan Coogler, who says his dad was such a massive Rocky fan he knew the lines to every movie . . . and would sit him in front of a VCR to watch "Rocky II" before a big game just to get him motivated.
They've also updated Rocky's original theme, "Gonna Fly Now", with a new theme for Adonis called "You're a Creed".
James McAvoy stars as Mary Shelley's mad scientist, in a movie that's told entirely from Igor's perspective. Daniel Radcliffe is a hunchbacked circus performer Victor takes on as his assistant after witnessing his medical skills.
They create a monster out of stolen animal parts before moving on to their human creation. Also, Igor doesn't have his hump for very long. After all, if Frankenstein can reanimate a lifeless corpse, he can certainly fix a pesky little back problem, right?
The guy who played Moriarty on "Sherlock" (Andrew Scott) is the cop investigating them, and Charles Dance from "Game of Thrones" is also in it as Victor's disapproving father. You know him better as Tyrion's disapproving father, Tywin Lannister.
In a time where let's face it we don't know what we're putting in our bodies half the time. We think we know. Apparently scientists are now saying that fries may be healther than salads? Come again? Read for yourself, HERE
In a world where people take tons of selfies, it was only a matter of time before our furry friends caught on. In New York City, a rat managed to climb into a sleeping man's lap and take a close-up photo of himself with the man's phone before the man finally awoke. The hilarious incident was caught on video by a tourist, and it shows the shocked man trying to brush the rat off his lap before dropping his phone twice while he frantically tries to get away from the creature.
A 44-year-old guy in L.A. named Shlomo Rechnitz owns a company called Brius Healthcare Services. Apparently it's the largest nursing home provider in California. So he's pretty well off, and does a lot of charity work on the side.
Anyway, a video of him at an airport in Ireland earlier this month is going around Facebook, because he decided to buy dinner for 400 American troops.
He was waiting for a flight when he saw them in the food court about to eat their brown bag lunches. And he thought it wasn't right when all the people around them were eating REAL dinners.
So he went up to their commanding officer, and asked if he could buy them all a HOT meal. Then he told them they could each spend up to $50 to get whatever they wanted from any restaurant in the airport.
Assuming they all took him up on it, that's $20,000. But he talked to them afterward, and said it was a small price to pay for everything they do for us.
