Top 9 Unexpected Tattoo Consequences

“Over 36% of Americans have at least one tattoo, whether it was a design that took ten years to create or a random Japanese character chosen from the parlor’s wall after a night of binge drinking. In most instances, the image is a permanent mistake, always reminding people of an insane night filled with liquids and regrets. In some cases, however, there are consequences for which the tattooed just aren’t prepared. These are their stories.” w/ photos

Inmate Hid 10-Inch Revolver In His Rectum

A man arrested this week in North Carolina may have stashed a .38 barrel revolver in his rectum, according to police, who reported that the unloaded 10-inch weapon was not discovered until after the suspect had been booked into a cell in the county jail. Michael Leon Ward, a 22-year-old Georgia resident, was arrested Monday after a trooper spotted him speeding. Ward, who resisted arrest, was subdued with the help of a stun gun. A subsequent search of his vehicle resulted in additional charges for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia… According to cops, Ward, pictured at right, summoned jailers to his cell, claiming that someone was trying to kill him, and that he discovered a gun inside his cell. The weapon was found in the toilet, where Ward claimed he tossed it after finding it in his bunk.” w/ photos

Car Ploughs Into Woman’s Living Room

A health and safety officer narrowly escaped injury after a car ploughed through a wall and into her living room, landing near to where she had been sitting moments before. Andrea Barr had walked into the kitchen shortly before the silver car crashed through the wall of her home burying her favorite chair in rubble. The Ford Mondeo veered off the road, smashing through wheelie bins and a fence before coming to rest in the lounge of the 55-year-old’s home in Coggleshall, near Colchester in Essex. The driver of the car, thought to be a man in his 70s, was checked over by paramedics at the scene but did not need hospital treatment. Speaking after her ordeal, grandmother Mrs Barr reportedly said: “I was very frightened. I just wanted to keep crying. ‘I haven’t a clue how much it will cost to repair the house.” w/ photo

365 Days In The Life Of A NYC Bike

“Last year, Red Peak Branding conducted a unique urban experiment for Hudson Urban Bicycles. On January 1, 2011 we chained a fully loaded bike – bells, basket, lights and more – to a post along a busy Soho street. We took a picture of the bike everyday for 365 days, watching it slowly vanish before our eyes. The photos we took were then turned into a daily calendar. We call this project LIFECYCLE: 365 days in the life of a bike in NYC.” — RedPeakVideos

$400k In Loose Change Left At Security Checkpoints?

“If America’s airports had a penny for every rushed passenger through security, they wouldn’t be near as pleased as they are today. The Transportation Security Administration says they’ve collected about $400,000 in abandoned change from passengers emptying their pockets through security checkpoints. That figure was actually down this year in comparison to 2010′s forgotten sum of $409,085.56… ‘Unclaimed money, typically consisting of loose coins passengers remove from their pockets, is documented and turned into the TSA financial office.” w/ photos
