At Least 19 People Were Killed in a Terrorist Attack at an Ariana Grande Concert in the U.K.

At Least 19 People Were Killed in a Terrorist Attack at an Ariana Grande Concert in the U.K.

At least 19 people were killed and close to 60 were injured after an explosion last night at the Manchester Arena in England, right after an ARIANA GRANDE show.

It happened OUTSIDE the arena at around 10:30 P.M. local time, as people were filing out of the building.  Police are investigating it as an ACT OF TERRORISM, and it appears to have been the work of a suicide bomber.  No one has claimed responsibility yet.

British Prime Minister THERESA MAY called it, quote, “an appalling terrorist attack.”  As of last night, there was no word from PRESIDENT TRUMP.  But the Department of Homeland Security is closely monitoring the situation, and they say they have no information about a similar threat to a music venue in the U.S.

(There’s an eerie dashcam video shot from the other side of the arena, where you can hear the explosion, and see the light from the blast.  You hear the guy who’s in the car say “No!”, because he was waiting for his GIRLFRIEND to get out of the concert.  And here’s video from inside the arena, where you can hear the explosion.)

(You can read some witness accounts here.)

An 18-year-old man who was at the show told CNN, quote, “Ariana was off the stage, she’d finished her set.  I looked around because I heard this big bang, people screaming and crying and flooded towards the stage.”

Another witness said, quote, “It was a really big explosion.  Everybody started screaming and running.  There were people on the floor . . . There was a lot of confusion.”

There’s no word on the identities of the victims yet, but obviously, there were a lot of young kids at the show.

Ariana wasn’t injured, but she Tweeted, quote, “Broken.  From the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry.  I don’t have words.”  And TMZ says she has suspended the rest of her tour for now.  Her next show was supposed to be in London on Thursday.

On the plus side, there have been reports of locals opening their homes to people who need everything from a place to stay to just a cup of tea.  They’ve also been helping reunite parents with their kids, and there may very well be plenty of people still looking for their children.

 

 

And taxis have been offering free rides to those in need.

Forget the Five-Second Rule . . . If You Drop a Cookie, You’ve Got a Solid Half Hour to Grab It Off the Floor

Forget the Five-Second Rule . . . If You Drop a Cookie, You’ve Got a Solid Half Hour to Grab It Off the Floor

There have been lots of studies about whether the “five-second rule” is legit . . . if you drop a piece of food, do you REALLY have five seconds to grab it before it’s too contaminated with bacteria to eat?

Well, according to a new study, YES, you can get away with swooping up food you drop with the five-second rule . . . and for some stuff, you can wait even longer.

Researchers at Aston University in England found that if you drop something WET or STICKY, like a donut or a fork full of spaghetti, you have to grab it as quickly as possible before it absorbs bacteria and isn’t safe to eat.

But if you drop something hard and dry, like a cookie or a potato chip, take your time. Maybe walk the dog, watch a YouTube video or two, power out a few tweets . . . and THEN get back to eating it.

They found you when you drop hard, dry foods, you’re pretty much safe as long as you eat them off the floor within a HALF HOUR.

People Love This Crazy Jack Russell Terrier from the Crufts Dog Show

A video of an excited Jack Russell terrier running an obstacle course at the Crufts dog show in England is trending online.

He had a little too much energy, and bit it on one of the first obstacles he had to jump over. Then he took a ramp a little too fast and almost wiped out again.

A College Is Looking For a Professor of Legos . . . and You Can Apply

Want to make over $100,000-a-year playing with Legos? You actually might be able to pull it off . . . but you’ll have to hustle and probably do a LOT of lying on your resume.

The University of Cambridge in England is looking for a “Professor of Lego” to study Legos, figure out ways to incorporate them into education, and analyze the role of Legos and other toys in kids’ lives worldwide.

But there are two catches. One, the deadline to apply is tomorrow. And two, they’re looking for someone with an, quote, “outstanding research record of international stature and vision, leadership, experience, and enthusiasm.”

Zombies Would Totally Wipe Out Humanity in 100 Days or Less

Zombies Would Totally Wipe Out Humanity in 100 Days or Less

I’m not sure this really counts as a silver lining . . . but if there IS a zombie apocalypse one day, at least it’ll be over quickly.

Researchers at the University of Leicester in England just finished up a study on ZOMBIES, and they figured out that it would take less than 100 days for the zombies to kill or infect everyone on the planet and totally wipe out humanity.

They estimated that every zombie would have a 90% chance of infecting one person per day or eating their brains.

That would make the infection spread twice as fast as the Plague did in Europe in the 14th century . . . and it would drop the population from 7.5 billion people to just 181 people in 100 days.

But . . . there is some hope. Those numbers don’t account for us FIGHTING BACK.

If every person has a 10% chance of KILLING one zombie every day, we could kill off all the zombies within about three years.

And the few hundred people who managed to avoid getting infected could begin repopulating the Earth . . . although it would take about 27 years before the population would really start recovering again.
