Bonehead Of The Day

A 33-year-old man has shelled out $100,000 (so far!) to look like Justin Bieber.

It all started when he went to the surgeon to get plugs for his thinning hair but it quickly spiraled in shelling out money on face fillings, chin reduction and eyelid surgery to try to look like the pop hero.

The man says he isn't necessarily a fan of Bieber's work, just his perfectly youthful face. He plans to undergo more surgeries in order to continue to try and look more like Justin.

Movie Theater Proposes A Phone Texting Aisle For Extreme Phone Users

AMC Theatres, which owns 400 cinemas across the country, is considering a 'texting aisle' for those who can't bear to shut off their phones for more than a couple of minutes.

The company say the most logical place to put an aisle for people who want to send texts is the back row.

Two other chains, Regal Entertainment and IMAX, are also looking at ways to let audiences text while watching a movie, without annoying other viewers.'

The issue recently flared up when Madonna was banned from entering any cinema in a Texas chain because she was texting during the NYC premiere of "12 Years a Slave."

Titanic Violin Sold At Auction For World Record $1.4 Million

The violin played by the Titanic's bandmaster as the ship sank sold at an auction for $1.45 million, a world record for memorabilia from the ship.

Wallace Hartley's violin was found strapped to his body after he drowned with some 1,500 others on board the ship in 1912.

It was sold to a British collector after a 10-minute battle between telephone bidders.

The instrument carries an inscription from the 33-year-old's fiancée to mark their engagement. It was sold with the leather luggage case, initialed W.H.H.

For decades the violin was believed lost but it was found in the attic of a house in England in 2006.


** Hartley's band decided to continue performing as the Titanic sank, playing the hymn "Nearer, My God, to Thee" to comfort the passengers. Hartley and his seven bandmates all died when the ship sank.
