"The would-be robber didn't even ask for money, he just demanded hugs and high-fives from every teller. He then requested a bedtime story from the branch manager. Authorities found him sleeping underneath a table in the break room. Bail is set at $500,000 and may god save his soul."
If justice exists in this world, someone would pay his bail. He's too wholesome for this world.

Looks like I was wrong whiskey_warrior_556 isn't in custody and the standoff is still going on.
I have seen lots of stuff that claims that he surrendered to the cops, but they found no guns or big boy mags, is it possible that they let him go/he made bail?

Even though I really feel for her, she went hiking with high chances of flash flood.
Yeah. It's unfortunate but you really don't want to be fucking around on wet sandstone.

Heights don't generally get to me but there's something about people falling into/off of natural wonders that holds a particular horrifying fascination.

TRAGIC X Factor star Ariel Burdett “struggled with demons” and “regretted” appearing on the hit ITV show, a pal claimed.

In 2008, she gave one of X-Factor’s most memorable auditions, clashing with judges Cheryl Tweedy and Simon Cowell.

Touching tributes poured in from shocked pals after the popular reality TV contestant’s death.


Andrew Smalling, 35, knew Amy from the Chemic Tavern pub, in Wodehouse, Leeds, where she lived.

He told Sun Online: “We were shocked when we heard she’d died. She’d struggled with demons for a while.

X FACTOR ‘TAINTED’ ARIEL
“I think she regretted appearing on X Factor because she actually a decent musician and it sort of tainted her.”

Her cause of death is not yet known but West Yorkshire Police confirmed there were no suspicious circumstances.


She was a popular figure around Woodhouse with her distinctive look.

Student Sara Laughlin, 20, said: “A lot of us knew who she was because we’d seen her on X Factor as kids.

“Hers was one of those memorable TV moments.

“It’s so very sad she has died.”


Ariel had one of the hit ITV show’s most unforgettable auditions, ripping off her ID number when she came on.

During her appearance 11 years ago, she told Simon Cowell, Dannii Minogue Cheryl Tweedy and Louis Walsh she was a “holistic vocal coach”.

She’d struggled with demons for a while

Andrew Smalling, Friend
She clashed with Cheryl, branding her “stupid” and insisted to the judges she was “a human being, not a number”.

But the Love Made Me Do It singer told Ariel she was “scary” and said “by the way you walked over to me I thought we were gonna have a scrap”.

Ariel, who was 26 at the time, told the judges to “shove a bit of metal right up their a**”, as she was escorted out of the studio by a burly security guard.

‘ARIEL DEAD’
She also went by the name Arabella Starchild after her famous audition.
A pal of Ariel’s posted on Facebook: “It is with great sadness that I post this, as I have only just found out myself.

“A some time member of the moot, Amy Burdett aka Arabella Starchild passed to the Summerlands earlier this month.”

Tributes poured in from wellwishers and fans on Twitter.

One person tweeted: “RIP Ariel Burdett, the iconic Holistic Vocal Coach who provided one of the most legendary moments on TV.

“She was a generalist, not specialist, she was a human being, not a number.

“Her voice did many things and she will be dearly missed.”

Another posted: “Ariel Burdett is dead omg. Despite not getting through and whatnot, she was talked about more than most contestants and will forever be an x factor legend! RIP

And a third wrote: “Really sad to hear about Ariel Burdett aka the Holistic Vocal Coach passing away.

Got here from an interesting discussion on a forum I lurk, however riddled with troll's remorse it was. I guess I could believe she killed herself out of people thinking she was a worse singer than she really was, and I HAVE AUTISM PLEASE LAUGH AT ME refusing to leave her alone on Facebook, but part of me still doesn't buy it. She clearly had other personal issues too, a few people poking at you won't magically make you not want to live.

Ironically the biggest death/injury count in Zion comes from the slot canyons during flash floods. You're more likely to get caught in a flood than you are to fall.

I think for every fall there are five people who get swept up in the waters? Something like that.

Taylor Swift is now a terrorist in addition to being a massive slut.


Scooter Braun Asks for Meeting With Taylor Swift— “I Am Right Here, Ready to Speak Directly and Respectfully”


Just a few days before Taylor Swift took the stage at the American Music Awards where, in addition to performing she took home an armful of trophies, including the coveted Artist of the Year and Artist of the Decade, the head of her former record label, Scooter Braun, spoke at the 2019 Entertainment Industry Conference addressing the issues between Taylor and Big Machine.

According to Variety, during a Q&A session at the conference, Scooter said, “I think that these problems that are being discussed can be discussed behind closed doors and figured out pretty easily, and it’s something I’ve wanted to do for six months.”

However, later in the evening, he went on social media and addressed another alleged issue that has arisen since the rift between Taylor and Big Machine began in July. In an open letter, he revealed that the safety of his family and staff is now in question.

Scooter wrote, “Since your public statement last week there have been numerous death threats directed at my family. This morning I spoke out publicly for the first time saying I wouldn’t participate in a social media war. However, I came home tonight to find my wife had received a phone call threatening the safety of our children as well as other threats seen above. I won’t go into the details of this past week. I have been at a loss. Thinking of my wife and children, my team and their families, I have gone through a range of emotions on how to deal with this. I write this now only after a deep breath and much reflection. I am certain there is no situation ever worth jeopardizing anyone’s safety.”

This guy is an absolute cunt. He bought up the rights to all of her early music knowing she hates his guts and is now acting like he's amazed she isn't happy about that. Fuck this guy. He's doing it to make money, not to be her fucking friend, and if he decided to play hardball and got cyberbowlied why the fuck should I shed a tear for him? Act like a fucking man you pussy.
