Several London mall Santas are using polygraph machines on children to see if they have been naughty or nice. Katie Tucker, the marketing manager for Brent Cross malls, says, "We know that Christmas is a busy time of year for Santa and parents, so we decided to lend both a hand and check if children had really been naughty or nice, to make sure no one is telling fibs. The children of Brent Cross proved to be extremely honest, and we look forward to testing the kids of Croydon and Southampton to see how they fare!"
A guy who was visiting his girlfriend's parents got thrown into a little backyard project to pass the time... with the help of his girlfriend and her family, he build the most amazing thing in their Edmonton backyard.
Here's the beginning...
What could they be building??
The girlfriend's mom chimed in, "I wanted to keep him occupied, not with my daughter necessarily. I wanted to keep him busy with something else,I didn't want Daniel to just be twiddling his thumbs while he's here in Canada so I thought, this needs to be something that's got some meat to it."
They built a freaking IGLOO out of ice made from frozen milk cartons!!
Damn. Better get started if you want to finish before January! You can see the entire journey in pictures HERE

Andrew Hale does internet pranks and odd video experiments. I wouldn't really call his latest one a prank... it's more holiday-themed. He secretly paid for people's groceries right before they checked out, then filmed their reactions!
Super cool. He doesn't reveal that it was him, and it's neat seeing people become emotional when they get the news.
We received this e-mail over the weekend.... any advice for "Jamie?"
Hey Ben & Kelly!
I have a problem that I would love your help with. I am a 23-year-old single girl, and I realized that EVERY SINGLE PERSON I have dated I met while I was drunk. I just graduated from U of L and got a full time job, so I want to cut way down on the drinking, and perhaps find someone to settle down with. However, I have no idea how to meet guys outside of bars or parties. It doesn't help that I am extremely shy and have trouble starting conversations with strangers. Online dating does not appeal to me at all, either. I attached a picture of myself so you can see what I look like. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
We already know that the spiders from Mars are real -- but has the NASA rover Curiosity picked up real evidence of extraterrestrial life on the Red Planet? Conspiracy theorists think so. We think Mr. Alien looks a lot like Bigfoot. So if we're right...that's TWO theories proven. BAM! Mind=blown. Oh...and there are alien rats too...
Toronto's Mayor Rob Ford has gone off the deep end. He swears in front of kids HERE, then Toronto City Council decided to strip him of many of his powers after a heated debate where he KNOCKED OVER a woman councilor... full on WWE style.
In all honesty, it kinda looks like he bumped into her and not that he was trying to knock her down. If he was trying a WWE move, it was kind of weaksauce. Anyhow, the Mayor now effectively has no legislative power.
Oh and you KNEW the Jay-Z "Tom Ford"/ Rob Ford remix was coming right?
By the way, does he remind anyone of Chris Farley?
Read all about the "BATKID's" day HERE. They even made newspapers for him!
This is so cool....
Meet Miles, he's a 5-year-old boy with leukemia and has a wish: He wants to be Batman. So the Make-a-Wish Foundation asked for help from San Francisco residents, and more than 10,000 have RSVP'd. They'll help stage a series of stunts on Friday, during which little Miles will get to rescue someone in trouble on a cable car, chase the Penguin, capture the Riddler, and be thanked (and given a key to the city) by the mayor and the police chief at City Hall. The thousands of people who signed up will form crowds of bystanders who will cheer Batman on. "Since he wants to be a superhero, we felt like having a large crowd there waiting with signs and cheering him on would make him feel like a hero," a Make-a-Wish manager.
See the Official Make-A-Wish page HERE. AND it's possible Miles may end up with a comic book from DC Comics detailing his exploits — and a musical theme of his own, offered byDark Knight Trilogy composer Hans Zimmer.
This is so crazy and I can't imagine this happening to anyone!
During a routine visit to the doctor, 17 yr-old Jacqui Beck, mentioned that she hadn't started getting her periods. Tests soon showed that she had MRKH syndrome, a genetic condition that meant she had been born without a vagina, womb, or cervix. Wait... WHAT????
This poor girl said, "I left the doctor's [office] in tears. I would never know what it was like to give birth, be pregnant, have a period. All the things I had imagined doing suddenly got erased from my future.... I was really angry and felt like I wasn't a real woman any more."
The crazy part is this condition isn't even THAT rare!! In fact it affects one in 4,500 newborn girls. Woah...
No, you did not read that headline wrong. And yes, the world may quickly be coming to and end. On a recent episode of the show ‘Logos, What?‘ they featured people that had object sexuality. These people have feelings for inanimate objects such as tress, board games and a car, just to name a few.
This one woman decided that she fell madly in love with a roller coaster. It’s worth mentioning that the roller coaster is not in working order, rather it is in parts and is named Bruce. And he loves pizza. You can see their ‘romantic’ story in the video.
A guy who bought a used desk on Craigslist for $150 discovered that it wouldn't fit through the door into his study.... so he took the desk apart to get it inside. That's when a bag containing $98,000 fell out!!!! Daaaaaaaaaaaang!! Cheez-its for daaaaaaaays!!
Ah, but Noah Muroff's windfall did not last long. He got a conscience and the next day, with his four kids along, he took the money back to the desk's original owner. The woman "was totally speechless" and "was so shocked and touched that anyone would call," he said. "She said, 'You could have kept the money and nobody would have ever known.'"
At the London premiere of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” she moved a barricade to meet and talk to a disabled fan. Wow. This is why she is an international celebrity, and why everyone loves her. You make Louisville proud!!!
Congratulations Louisville... we've made another list. The list for most "Hipster City." I'm looking at you Highlands...
Here are the 10 cities vying for the title of hipster-est.
10. Baltimore, MD
9. Louisville, KY - This is what they said about Louisville... Louisville's all about bourbon, BBQ, and bands that play indie rock. Oh, and beer. It's home to rockers My Morning Jacket and VHS or Beta (who, ironically, now live in Brooklyn), is the birthplace of Hunter S. Thompson, and actually has restaurants that don't require staff uniforms (!!!) -- so don't even think about complimenting the waitress on her flair. The city's best hotel, 21C, is a "boutique-cum-contemporary art museum".
The rest of the Top 10
8. Venice Beach, CA
7. Savannah, GA
6. Boulder, CO
5. Oakland, CA
4. Asheville, NC
3. Austin, TX
2. Eugene, OR
1. Seattle, WA
I don't even know where to begin with this one.... 1st of all the guy is 93 and his name is Bill Flowers. Win. Secondly, his dog's name is Liberty... double win.
Now for the crazy.
You see, Bill's dog Liberty drug a human leg to the porch of Bill's house. Yea... gross. Scared he would be accused of murder, Bill buried it. But four days later, after his daughter told him to call the police—and their investigation uncovered more human remains yesterday. The investigation is ongoing. Ugh....
Horrible story.... but the Internet won't care. Something tells me someone will autotune Bill's voice in 3....2....
This is so great! A little girl writes President Obama to ask that her deployed mother come home for her birthday! Her birthday falls on Veterans Day, and her one birthday wish was for her mom to come home. She decided to write a letter to President Obama, which she signed “Love, Rylie Higa, 4th Grade.” But she never had a chance to send the letter. That's when the news got involved and HOOKED IT UP!!
Facing a double mastectomy with grace takes courage. Facing one with courage and joy is extraordinary.
But that’s exactly what Deborah Cohan did yesterday right before she went into surgery to have her breasts removed. Cohan, an Ob/Gyn and mom of two, held a dance party with her medical team in the operating room of Mt. Zion Hospital in San Francisco.
This inspiring 6-minute-long video, posted on YouTube, shows Cohan busting some serious moves as she wiggles and twerks to Beyonce’s hit “Get Me Bodied.” Cohan requested that friends and family make videos of themselves dancing to Bey too so that she could watch them during her recovery. “I have visions of a healing video montage,” she wrote. “Nothing brings me greater joy than catalyzing others to dance, move, be in their bodies. Are you with me people?”
They were. You can check out videos of Deborah’s fans shaking their booties in solidarity on her CaringBridge page.
Britney Spears has a new perfume and a new song called.... wait for it..... "Perfume." I'm sure it smells lovely.
But we thought... if the perfume smelled what Britney REALLY smelled like, what would it smell like? Haha What about other celebs? Lady Gaga = uncooked meat? Mama June = your grandma's old musty couch. You get the idea!
Two small airplanes collided 12,000 feet above Superior, Wis., on Saturday evening, sending one plane plummeting to earth in flames – but all nine passengers and both pilots survived. The only person injured, except for bumps and bruises, was the pilot of the plane that crashed.
You see… the two planes were carrying skydivers. After the planes collided, the divers leapt to safety, including the pilot of the crashing plane. The other pilot managed to stabilize the other damaged plane well enough to land. “The outcome for us was as good as it could be,” he said.
Annnnnnnnnnnd... say hi to Patrick Fette, WORLD CHAMPION!!! You see, Patrick just waltzed into the 2013 World Beard and Mustache Championship in Germany and WON the World Title in the English Style Mustache category.
Every year, our company does a Halloween costume contest. Last year the DJX team won with Gangnam Style and this year...we won again with the DJX edition of "WHAT DOES THE FOX SAY"! Huge shout out to Caufields for hooking us up with the costumes to make this happen!
According to reports, a woman in Fargo, North Dakota says she'll be handing out letters, instead of sweet treats, to children she believes are "moderately obese." "I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight," she said. "I think it's just really irresponsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy just 'cause all the other kids are doing it."
What do you think about this? Is she helping or insulting?
The always sexy Carson Daly and Matt Lauer talked about it...
What’s up with all the giraffes on Facebook? It’s part of a riddle, if you get it wrong you have to post a pic of a giraffe on your profile. Why a giraffe? It's not clear. The riddle goes like this:
3:00 am, the doorbell rings and you wake up. Unexpected visitors. It's your parents and they are there for breakfast. You have strawberry jam, honey, wine, bread and cheese. What is the first thing you open?
Scroll down for the answer.
By the way a warning.... haha
Two acceptable answers: The answers: "The door" and "your eyes."
I won't say "hate"... but I really dislike proposals on live TV. So many things can go wrong right? Beside the fact she could say "no" and you're left kneeling there looking sad and pathetic, I think it's done more to benefit the guy than the girl. Girls don't like surprises... and very public surprises are even worse. Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnyway...
Pictures don't lie. She said "yes" but... what do you think she was thinking?
Her face tells another story!! Do you think she looks less-than-enthusiastic about this proposal?
Ice cream makers Ben & Jerry's have announced that they're releasing a flavor dedicated to Ron Burgundy and the rest of San Diego's Action 4 News team, and it's called "Scotchy Scotch Scotch." I think it's kinda bull that there isn't any actual scotch whiskey in the ice cream.... but whatev.
According to the press release, "the flavor is a creamy concoction of butterscotch ice cream with ribbons of butterscotch swirl."
Is this the best lip-synch to a toddler's temper tantrum ever??
From YouTube: "My 6 year old daughter had been in her room wigging out for about an hour, and there was no talking her down. I was getting fed up, so my husband decided to lighten the mood. For the record, she's not typically a beast child - she's actually a pretty awesome little kid who was having a rough day. :)"
Wow.... I know every artist has an off night, but in this video originally from 2001, Britney Spears' live microphone feed (without backing track or sweetening effects) from her show in Las Vegas is isolated.
It's just now going viral, but really has anyone ever accused Britney of ever singing "live?" See for yourself....
After watching the Colts beat the Broncos (and Peyton) on Sunday... I noticed something after the game. Is Indianapolis Colts' QB Andrew Luck and Peter Griffin the same person? They sure sound the same!!!
For comparison.... 1st we have Luck from an interview earlier in the week...
This 33-year-old man decided to spend close to $100,000 over five years for plastic surgery to look like Justin Bieber. Yep, I'll say that again...a 33-year-old man decided to spend close to $100,000 over five years for plastic surgery to look like Justin Bieber. Toby Sheldon, a song writer, has spent his savings on constant surgeries that are meant to give him a smile and eyes like Bieber.
I mean, if you're going to pick a celebrity to look like... is Bieber the one?? I'm sure he's a great singer.
There's this controversial globe-trotting "sex tourist" Daryush Valizadeh (btw... who gets a job like this???), who put together a world map rating the "easiness of girls by country." The map is fairly straightforward: A rating of 1 means the girls from this country are "very easy to get with"; a rating of 5 means the girls from this country are "very hard to hook up with."
The United States and Canada are ranked a solid 3 — i.e., "normal difficulty." So.... uh congratulations?
Absolut Vodka has come out with CHICAGO flavored Vodka...not Moustache and Sausage like you'd think. The vodka maker on Monday unveiled Absolut Chicago, with the essence of olive and rosemary. The limited edition vodka comes in a bottle splashed with a city-scape design. What would Louisville TASTE like, if Absolut came out with a flavor? Bourbon?
This is pretty cool... Eric Stemen took a montage of timelapse photographs around Louisville over the course of roughly a year and a half... beginning February 28, 2012 and ending on September 13, 2013.
Snorkeler finds rare 18-foot ‘sea monster’: Never swimming in the ocean again…
This was found off of Catalina Island in Southern California in 30 feet of water. It is an 18 foot oarfish which rarely seen because they live in 3000 feet deep water. The oarfish Santana found – which had eyes the size of silver dollars – is believed to have died of natural causes.
Your cat can now get drunk….thanks Japan. Japan now has a "wine made exclusively for cats" made by a pet food company. They call it Nyan Nyan Nouveau and it contains Cabernet grapes juice, vitamin C and catnip, which means they will get drunk. More from TIME HERE
