After a runner taking a selfie caused a pile-up at this year’s Hong Kong Marathon, the marathon’s organizers aren’t taking any chances. Starting early so as to get the word out, the marathon is banning selfies and urging runners to leave the smartphones on the sidelines. The incident that sparked all this happened at the beginning of the Marathon’s 10K run last February. Shortly after the start of the race, a runner stopped to take a selfie and caused a pile-up as other competitors crashed into her. Initially, the organizers wanted to ban all cell phones, but realized that this would be impractical. So instead they’re launching a massive anti-selfie campaign through Facebook, television and radio in preparation for next February’s run.

Police in South Carolina arrested a woman after she allegedly stabbed her roommate multiple times for refusing to stop playing music. According to police, 54-year-old Vernett Bader became irritated with her 64-year-old roommate after he rejected her pleas to turn off the Eagles and told her to “shut up.”

New Zealand beer Tui commissioned a team of pranksters to route the plumbing of their friend’s house so beer came out of every tap. Kitchen sink? Beer. Bathroom tap? Also beer. The guys wired their house with hidden cameras to catch the unsuspecting friend’s reaction. The friend, a man named Russ, came home with his wife and dog, and went to the kitchen. His wife noticed the kitchen tap dripping — but it wasn’t water that came out. Rather, a dark and strange liquid.
