Glenn K. Tripp, a D.B Cooper copycat, hijacked a plane for a $600k ransom. He had his drink spiked with Valium by a flight attendant, and after a 10 hour standoff, lowered his ransom to 3 cheeseburgers and a head start on a getaway.

Roman soldiers were given one pound of meat daily. For an army 120 sheep were killed a day just for the meat ration. Or 60 hogs. Huge flocks of livestock were herded and grazing alongside an army. Roman soldiers were a mule more than anything else. They carried very heavy gear, on bad roads.

Ray’s Pizza was started by a Mob as a front for Drugs and Money laundering, But ended up making almost the same money as their drug buisness.
All of our cat friends out there are a never-ending source of laughs for us owners. And if you’ve had a feline companion for any significant amount of time, you know that they like to sit awkwardly sometimes.
Are they trying to mimic us humans? Or are they making some kind of other, independent statement?
We’ll never know, but at least we can snap photos of them and they’ll make us laugh!
1. Sitting like a lady…not really.
2. Hangin’ out and hangin’ loose.
3. Can I help you with something?
4. A little weirdo.
5. Oh my…
6. Don’t lean too far to the right.
7. Can I be a person now?
8. Care for some wine?
9. Taking it all in…
10. It’s been a long week. Time for some beer.
Share your pics of your cats sitting in weird positions!

Halloween’s come and gone, but I think all year is a good time for horror movies.
Even if you’re not a horror movie lover, you’ll probably think these tweets are on-point.

Horror movies don't get enough credit for encouraging kids to pursue research at their local library

15. Managed to ruin that one…
Ghostface: What’s your favorite scary movie?
Me: Well, I just binged the works of Amando de Ossorio. His quartet of “Blind Dead” films started the Spanish horror boom of the 70s. What they lack in characterization they make up for in mood, plus…
Ghostface: Jesus (hangs up)
— Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) March 27, 2019

Ladies, keep on bringing that funny business to the masses!
Guys, let’s see if and when you can up your games!
Parents, you have a tough job, and we take off our hats to you.
We also understand that you probably get a little (just a little…) fed up from time to time due to how much your little angels drive you up the wall.
So let’s enjoy some funny/painful tweets that should look familiar to all parents out there…let me know if you need a tissue…

Mom: You came out of my personal space

In case you were wondering, the loudest sound in the world is my kid screaming, "Are you pooping?!?" in a public restroom.
— Unfiltered Mama (@UnfilteredMama) March 19, 2016
6. You showed them!
Telling your kids they can't eat brownies for breakfast, then eating brownies for breakfast after they leave for school.
— Momma of Midgard (@MidgardMomma) March 18, 2015

There are Olympians who began intense training regimens at age 5, but sure, son, keep licking the bathtub.
— Mommy Cusses (@mommy_cusses) August 10, 2016
8. That’s not what I meant.
What I say to my son: "Get dressed."
His interpretation: "Stand around naked watching television with one sock on."

Parenting a newborn:
50% changing diapers

I get it now.
— Domestic Goddess (@DomesticGoddss) July 27, 2015
Parents…do these tweets look accurate, or what?
Do us a favor: share a funny or painful anecdote about your kiddos in the comments below!
Traveling can be very expensive, so looking for cheap flights is crucial if you want to save a little money. Unfortunately, some websites make it hard to find a good deal.
Google Flights just introduced an update meant to help you find the best price for a flight. If you’ve used it recently, you may have seen alerts that pop up and let you know about any nearby airports. These pop-ups were created to help you find cheaper flight options at airports other than the one you initially were looking at.
Pop-ups appear after you click “Nearby Airports” and usually look like this:
Often times another airport may get you a better price, even if it winds up being slightly less convenient. And with this new update, Google Flights will also advise you on the best itinerary if you do decide to switch to another airport.
In the past, Google Flights allowed you to search for deals by clicking on more than one airport, but this new update makes it easier to play around with options until you find the best one.
In the end, people in larger metropolitan areas will benefit the most because Google Flights will alert them to better deals nearby. It is what it is, big cities just have more airport options.
Additional updates to Google Flights will also give you a glimpse of other types of deals, especially if you have flexible plans.
If you’ve already checked out Google Flights, let us know if it lives up to the hype. We’d love to hear more about whether or not these updates were useful!
