Some people have boatloads of cash, but Australian billionaire Clive Palmer (above) plans to turn his boatload into an actual ship – The Titanic II. Palmer announced today that he plans to build a replica of the Titanic, the famous ocean liner than sank in 1912.
"It will be every bit as luxurious as the original Titanic, but ... will have state-of-the-art 21st-century technology and the latest navigation and safety systems," Palmer said in a statement.

While searching for viral videos on the web today, I came across the video above. According to various blogs and media outlets, the video, taken at last night's Rangers game, depicts a evil, heartless couple snatching a foul ball from a toddler and then gloating about it. Now, either I'm blind or the media is exaggerating the story for views because that is not what the video shows. What I see is a man scooping up a foul ball, fair and square, and handing it off to his lady who then poses for a photo (gloating, critics say). A toddler just happens to be in the vicinity.
Some people seem to think that the couple should have given the boy the ball, but why? Honestly, I don't think the supposed ball snatchers noticed the kid and even if they did the little boy is not entitled to the ball just because he wants it. What do you think? PS: I have two kids, including one about the same age as the toddler boy.

Paddleboarding is an ancient form of surfing, but the pastime is gaining major popularity all over the country. Rather than having to wait on a day with killer surf, paddleboarders embrace the calm and serenity that the water has to offer!

In San Jose, California, drivers are caught off guard when they see Salvatore La Barbera selling hot dogs on the side of the road. That's because he rolls up in a big, black hearse and cooks the dogs inside of a coffin!
"Some people take a dim view of this because of the controversy of mixing food and death," La Barbera said. "But I've had a lot more people stop me just to take a picture."
