    Just when you thought that things couldn’t get any worse for HBO and Game of Thrones executives, HBO Spain decided to take up the matter in its own hands by airing the complete GOT S07E06 episode. Facepalm! After HBO Nordic committed this blunder of broadcasting the next unaired Game of Thrones episode in Spain for 1 hour, the viewers were quick to record the same and share it online with other GOT enthusiasts. As usual, Reddit was the first online forum that became the go-to place for HBO fans. On different Game of Thrones-related subreddits (For ex., Freefolk), the users...

    A 52 year old man in Elgin, Illinois was taken by surprise after a prostitute he hired through a website turned out to be his own wife of the past 19 years.

Last weekend, the man told his wife he was going out drinking with work colleagues, when in reality he was traveling to a motel on the outskirts of town. Upon checking into the motel the man used his phone to access his regular website used...

    BOULDER CITY, NV (KSNV/CNN) - A woman is recovering from burns she suffered after a battery exploded in her purse on Tuesday evening during a city council meeting.

"She was kind of in shock because it happened so fast," he said. "She was on fire, her purse was on fire. Kind of a crazy scene." Scorch marks...

    The Connecticut lottery's mobile app malfunctioned over the weekend, causing some winning tickets to read as losers. Lottery officials shut down the app for an hour after identifying the error that took place from 12:25 p.m. on Saturday through 10:34 a.m. on Monday and encouraged players who checked their tickets during that time to scan them again. "If you scanned draw tickets during that time, please check your tickets again. The Mobile App 'Scan Tickets' feature is now fully operational," the lottery said. "You can also check CT Lottery tickets at a Ticket Checker available at all CT Lottery Retailers."...

    White supremacist and ‘Unite the Right’ leader, Jason Kessler, was once reportedly a supporter a former President Obama and the Occupy movement. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center (an organization that is certainly no friend to Conservatives), Kessler revealed his political transformation around November 2016, the same month then candidate Donald Trump won the presidential election.Southern Poverty Law Center reports: Rumors abound on white nationalist forums that Kessler’s ideological pedigree before 2016 was less than pure and seem to point to involvement in the Occupy movement and past support for President Obama. At one recent speech in favor of Charlottesville’s...

The 22-year-old man and two women were inside the mobile home when the fire broke out about 3 a.m. Friday. He says all three made it out safely, but the man went back in to get his cellphone and didn't make it back out.

    An Atlanta rapper who previously claimed to have been shot on at least 11 different occasions — and who in December, after being wounded, proclaimed "God made me bulletproof" — was shot and killed Sunday, reports CBS affiliate WGCL. Jibril Abdur-Rahman, 28, who was better known as Yung Mazi, was found dead with multiple gunshot wounds inside the Urban Pie pizza shop in Atlanta's Kirkwood neighborhood, police said. The restaurant was less than 200 feet from a police station. WGCL reports that officers heard the gunshots, but the perpetrator got away before police arrived. In a video posted to YouTube...

    Baltimore activists' attempt for a murder-free weekend proved to be too much to ask of the city, with at least three people shot, two of them killed, in less than 72 hours since guns were ordered to be put down.  Activist Erricka Bridgeford promoted the campaign as a "Baltimore ceasefire" and "Nobody kill anybody" weekend that began on Friday and ends Sunday night, garnering the support of thousands on social media since May. The city made it through Friday with no shootings reported, drawing hope from participants the campaign might see some success. But by Saturday, two men -- ages...

    A 67-year-old man who previously served prison time in the murder of a 6-year-old child, pleaded guilty to a 2001 rape after investigators linked him to the scene of that crime through a pair of dentures he left behind. The dentures were part of a sex assault kit backlog that wasn't tested until recently, though authorities may have been able to identify Thomas Maupin sooner -- his name was printed on the inside of the false teeth.

    The police finally found former Yankees slugger Danny Tartabull — thanks to Danny Tartabull. Tartabull, 54, got himself arrested in Agoura, Calif., on Monday evening in connection with $275,000 of unpaid child support dating back to a 2011 conviction. According to TMZ Sports, Tartabull called the police to report his car had been broken into. When the cops ran Tartabull’s name through the system, they saw an active warrant and arrested him on the spot. Six years ago, Tartabull entered a plea of no contest, but did not comply with probation and was ordered to surrender and serve 180 days...

    When we look back on this period of history, we’ll say climate change was one of the greatest hoaxes. Politician-turned-environmental activist, Al Gore has become wealthy beyond his wildest dreams (and intelligence) thanks to pushing the “big lie.” A new study from NASA confirms sea levels are falling — not rising. iceagenow.info reports: NASA satellite sea level observations for the past 24 years show that – on average – sea levels have been rising 3.4 millimeters per year. That’s 0.134 inches, about the thickness of a dime and a nickel stacked together, per year. As I said, that’s the average....

    A Secret Service special officer on Tuesday afternoon accidentally shot himself and is hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries, according to the agency. A news release from the Secret Service said a special officer assigned to the Washington field office accidentally discharged his weapon while on duty. The incident has been referred to the Office of Professional Responsibility for further review. Editor's note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly identified the special officer involved in the incident as a "Secret Service agent," which is a different position. We regret the error and have pasted the full statement from the Secret...

    In a stunning turn of events, Hugh Freeze has resigned from Ole Miss. The move comes after the school found at least one call from the coach to an escort service on his school-issued cell phone. Athletic director Ross Bjork said the initial phone call originally was “attributed to a misdial.” But further vetting of Freeze’s phone records disclosed a “pattern of conduct” that led the school administration to confront Freeze this week. Bjork said he and school administrators spoke to Freeze Wednesday night.

    You might have heard that North Korea launched an intercontinental ballistic missile this week. Well, not in Russia! The Russian government is stubbornly insisting that the missile launched by North Korea on Tuesday morning was merely a medium-range ballistic missile, capable of traveling no more than a thousand kilometers or so. That’s what the Russian mission to the United Nations Security Council said on Thursday, anyway.
  • (Arctic) Global Warming Study Canceled Because There’s Too Much Ice

    Irony so thick, you need a shovel for it and perhaps an ice ax. In May, an expedition that set out to gather global warming evidence in the Arctic was forced to call it off. Why? Because the ice was too thick and the icebreaker was needed to rescue other ships. So much for that whole ‘global warming’ thing. The research vessel Amundsen was redirected by the Canadian Coast Guard to clear fishing lanes for boats and supply vessels. That includes the dreaded ‘oil tankers’. “The Science Team of the Canadian Research Icebreaker CCGS Amundsen has canceled the first leg...

    On CNN, Peter Bergen stated that the terrorist bombings in Boston was "likely right-wing" extremists. Here's the quote: "One of the things that I'd be looking at, once the device, if it is a device, is found, what kind of explosives were used. If it, for instance, if it was hydrogen peroxide, sort of a signature of al Qaeda. If it was more conventional explosives, which are much harder to get hold of now, it might be some other kind of right wing extremists... "We've also seen other extremist groups, right wing groups, attacking, for instance, trying to attack the...
