    A Chinese couple who missed the last boarding call for their flight ran onto the tarmac in an attempt to stop the plane from leaving without them. The couple had arrived at their gate at Beijing International Airport after it had closed, and reportedly forced their way onto the runway with their luggage as the plane was taxiing. The flight from Beijing to Shanghai was delayed by 20 minutes as the couple continued to block the runway, with photos showing the woman at one point squatting down underneath the plane. She reportedly attempted to persuade officials to allow her and...

    (Original title: Hillary Clinton would make a sober, smart and pragmatic president. Donald Trump would be a catastrophe.) American voters have a clear choice on Nov. 8. We can elect an experienced, thoughtful and deeply knowledgeable public servant or a thin-skinned demagogue who is unqualified and unsuited to be president. Donald J. Trump, a billionaire businessman and television personality, is the latter. He has never held elected office and has shown himself temperamentally unfit to do so. He has run a divisive, belligerent, dishonest campaign, repeatedly aligning himself with racists, strongmen and thugs while maligning or dismissing large segments of...

    Is there a restaurant that you'd love to go to, but you don't like the kind of food it sells? No? Well of course not, because if you don't like the kind of food it sells, you just go somewhere else. You don't go to Chick-fil-A if you don't want to eat chicken, just like you don't eat at a Chinese food place if you want tacos and you don't eat Mexican if you have a hankering for sushi. That isn't stopping one group of brain-dead morons from trying to force In-N-Out Burger to offer "meat free" options on its...

    A British man who lived in the Alps as a goat for three days has won one of this year's Ig Nobel prizes. Tom Thwaites had special prostheses made so he could walk like an animal. The spoof awards, which are not quite as famous as the real Nobels, were handed out during their annual ceremony at Harvard University, US. Other studies honoured during the event examined the personalities of rocks, and how the world looks when you bend over and view it through your legs On the surface, all the celebrated research sounds a bit daft, but a lot...

    A principal of an Oklahoma City elementary school had to make one of the weirdest phone calls to a parent, when a little boy was found keeping a dead squirrel in his backpack. The little boy’s reasoning was priceless. A photo of the late rodent was posted on Ladye Hobson’s Facebook and explained the awkward phone call she received from the principal of Gatewood Elementary in Oklahoma City. Ladye Hobson told Fox 25 that her husband often jokes about making squirrel dumplings, and the little boy, Brylan, thought he would bring home dinner for the family. It’s probably safe to...

Five twentysomething college friends who are trying their hand at urban farming. Their business is called Coalo Valley Farms but it couldn't be any further from a picture of agrarian life.

    In what has been described as one of the most bizarre strings of petty crimes ever recorded, dozens of people in Philadelphia’s Kensington neighborhood have been reporting the theft of their house numbers. Interestingly, in all cases, only the “1” and “0” have been taken, which has earned the yet-to-be-identified thieves the nickname “binary bandits”. You might not notice what’s missing from dozens of houses in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia, but for those living there, it has been the main topic of discussion for the past two weeks. Someone is stealing the “1” and “0” from people’s house numbers...

The system, called EQ-Radio, works by generating a low-power wireless signal and measuring the time it takes the signal to reflect from various signals in its vicinity.

    Friendship is unlikely to blossom in one university dorm room this semester after one of its occupants sent an aggressive list of demands to her roommates before even meeting them. The message, sent by a UCLA freshman known only as Ashly, was shared by one of its two recipients on Twitter in a post which has now been seen by thousands. One of Ashly's new roommates, 17-year-old Winnie Chen, an aspiring make-up artist from Los Angeles, took to the social media site after being left in total shock by the email which, she says, was sent because Ashly's earlier messages...

    A 70-year-old man in Times Square got more than a dressing down when a nude performer accused him of snapping her photo while she was on a meal break — she doused him with coffee and punched him in the eye, police sources said. The painted naked lady ran off after the Saturday attack, but another nude performer, or desnuda, Tarrah Merill, 18, was charged with felony assault against a person 65 or older because she jumped into the fray and attacked the victim, sources said.

    Several weeks ago the police arrived at our home in the middle of the day and informed us that a 911 call had originated from our residence. I was not home at the time, but my spouse, her friend, and some of my children were. Law enforcement was kindly informed that all was okay, and they moved on. When I heard of this, the first thought was that my little grandson perhaps dialed the number inadvertently. He's a curious little guy who knows how to climb up, grab a phone, and start pushing buttons. Since it was entirely possible he...

    The inquisitive mind of the Chief | ChiefJayStrongbow
    You would think with all the cell phones around, and also the constant presence of the press pool, that someone would have filmed her as she left the ceremony and walked to where she waited for her ride. It would be interesting to see that footage. Has anybody seen anything? (Not the video of where she standing by the concrete post waiting for the van, but video of her walking from the memorial to the concrete post)

    I don't normally post You Tube videos on Free Republic, but my buddy Scooter has outdone himself here. The video is only 18 seconds long, but I assure you, it's laugh-out-loud material, and MUCH-NEEDED levity for today.
