POW! Right in the kisser! Well, in the dentures anyway.

I always thought that there was nothing good about dentures. Zacarias Pacheco de Moraes, an 81-year-old man, would disagree since wearing dentures is the reason he’s alive. No joke, Moraes was shot in the face but the dentures deflected the bullet.

Tiger escape drill, step 1: Dress a man in a Tigger suit

If some of the staff who captured the beast don’t seem to be taking the safety drill at Chengdu Zoo seriously, then they can be forgiven.

For if you look very, very closely at these images, you’ll notice it isn’t a real tiger at all. Instead of letting a real big cat loose, managers thought it might be wiser to practise with a costumed escaper.

When NASA’s shuttle Endeavour landed in Florida Wednesday June 1 to end its last-ever trip into space, the orbiter also apparently doubled as a crime-fighting machine.

As Endeavour re-entered Earth’s atmosphere and glided toward the runway at Kennedy Space Center at a blistering pace, the orbiter heralded its arrival with two sonic booms — a trademark of all shuttle landings. The shuttle’s sonorous notes woke up a Florida woman who then witnessed two men inside her car in her driveway and called the police, according to the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office.
