    British firefighters were "seriously unimpressed" when they were called out to rescue a YouTube prankster whose head was cemented inside a microwave. A video posted to YouTube by 22-year-old prankster TGFbro shows his head being cemented inside a microwave with Pollyfilla with a plastic bag protecting his face and a tube feeding him air. The prankster tells his friends that, despite the precautions, he is having trouble breathing, and they attempt to free his head -- without success. The West Midlands Fire Department was summoned to the scene and firefighters spent about an hour freeing the man's head. "We're seriously...

    More than 400 American millionaires and billionaires are sending a letter to Congress this week urging Republican lawmakers not to cut their taxes. The wealthy Americans — including doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs and chief executives — say the GOP is making a mistake by reducing taxes on the richest families at a time when the nation's debt is high and inequality is back at the worst level since the 1920s. The letter calls on Congress not to pass any tax bill that “further exacerbates inequality” and adds to the debt. Instead of petitioning tax cuts for the wealthy, the letter tells...

    What was supposed to be just another problem to solve for a freshman math class has turned into a controversy after a teacher used the Sept. 11 attacks as a word problem on a test. CBS Boston reports the Newburyport High School teacher used specifics from the terrorist attacks, down to the flight number, asking students to calculate how long United Airlines Flight 175 was in the air before it hit the World Trade Center. ... While some were certainly offended by this math problem, some parents and students accept the teacher's apology. "She's a nice woman. I think she...

    The San Francisco 49ers announced Thursday they are pledging $500,000 toward supporting gun control legislation. According to ESPN.com's Nick Wagoner, the Niners said they—along with local and national law enforcement—are signing a pledge for a "more understanding and safer America." The legislation would ban mechanisms that can make a semi-automatic weapon an automatic weapon, in addition to silencers and armor-piercing bullets. Per Robert Salonga of the Mercury News, a portion of the 49ers' donation will go toward nationally televised public service announcements meant to ease tension between law enforcement and those who fear police violence. The 49ers and a coalition...

    If you get caught allegedly shoplifting in a store, it's probably not a good idea to go back there. Two Pennsylvania women were caught on video trashing a 7-Eleven after employees locked them inside and called police after they allegedly were in the store a day earlier shoplifting. The two women also got into a fight with 7-Eleven employees and responding police officers, according to Philly.com. The two women - 20-year-old Lashae Whitaker and 28-year-old Tiera Brown - entered the 7-Eleven on Oct. 1 when they were locked inside as employees called the police.

    Lawmaker takes first step to remove Columbus Day in NYC A radical Brooklyn lawmaker on Monday introduced a new state bill to rename Columbus Day to Indigenous People’s Day, as he slammed the famed explorer as a “murderer.” “This land that all of us inhabit is stolen land – stolen from the indigenous people who were slaughtered and forced onto reservations,” Assemblyman Charles Barron told The Post , adding “they should be recognized in replace of Columbus Day.” Barron described Columbus as a “colonizer” who “enslaved Africans and slaughtered indigenous people.”

    According to a new national Politico/Morning Consult survey, 2016 election buyers' remorse is more prevalent among Hillary Clinton's voters than those who cast ballots for President Trump. "Among Clinton voters, 13 percent say they would either vote for a different candidate or not vote at all," the survey finds, while that number among Trump backers is four points lower.

It's not necessarily all that surprising that there would be more agita and recriminations on the losing side of a major campaign, but we've been told endlessly that Trump is so...

What’s the big deal? It’s “just a missile test.” That was the thrust of CNN host Alisyn Camerota statement this morning: “If these missiles, if they do this, and if these go into the waters off Guam, they don’t hit Guam, then isn’t this just another sort of provocation and a missile test? Does it have to be responded to with force?” View the video...

    There were nearly 5,000 weapons stacked high on rows of tables and jutting out of barrels inside the Newark Police Communication Center, where state and federal authorities announced the results of New Jersey’s largest gun buyback in state history. The amnesty program held at churches in Newark, Trenton and Camden allowed residents to carry in firearms no-questions-asked. Here’s what they brought. “Assault weapons” is a loaded term, but authorities say the buybacks brought in 129 semi-automatic and automatic weapons, some of which were illegal in New Jersey. “Many of those weapons are designed to pierce body armor, and getting just...
