Bonehead Of The Day:

An Ohio man who fled the scene of a car crash was found at a local bar.

He crashed his car, but fled when deputies arrived on the scene.

He was caught when someone spotted him at the bar and called police.  The man said he was just in an accident and needed a beer.

Turns out that the suspect had an active warrant for aggravated burglary, so instead of a beer, he got arrested.

March 16, 2880 The Day The World Will End

The end date for our world will be March 16, 2880.

Scientist predict a giant asteroid is set to collide with the Earth at 38,000 miles per hour. It's supposedly going to land in the Atlantic Ocean.

Scientists are already putting together a plan to save the Earth. Since we can see the asteroids trajectory apparently brushing the surface of it with chalk, charcoal or glass beads would cause the Sun to reflect off of it in ways that would change the way it is spinning towards us. We have hundreds of years to throw it off track.

There are 1,400 asteroids that NASA tracks to make sure that the Earth is clear and free from any destruction - like the one that supposedly killed off the dinosaurs.

(Think You're Tough?) Guy Gets Hit By A Train, Gets Up & Keeps Talking On His Cell Phone

A man in Kansas was hit by a moving train, got up and walked away.

The 25-year-old man was walking on the tracks and didn't move even when the train operator blew his horn.  After the man was hit, he got up and kept talking on his cellphone. He ended up getting a ride and went to the hospital for cuts on his legs and shoulders.

He told the cops he didn't hear the train because he was wearing headphones. He is being charged with criminal trespassing.

For What It's Worth.. We Lose About 5 Days A Year To Slow Loading Computers

Sitting around and waiting for your computer to load stuff wastes an average of five days every year for most people.

A study (conducted by SanDisk) surveyed more than 8,000 people in the United Kingdom, finding they lost more than 130 hours each year to waiting for their computers to load. It could be worse, though: in Italy, the average time-loss was seven days. Here in the United States, we only lose 4.9 days a year.
