  1. Former Power Rangers Stuntman Arrested For Cat Burglary

    No No Power Rangeeeeeeers!

    Yasutomo Ihara was once a stunt man on two of the biggest live action superhero franchises on Japanese TV: Kamen Rider and Super Sentai, the latter of which is recycled into Power Rangers for American audiences.

Why, turn to a life of crime, of course.

  4. Science Finally Able To Tell The Genetic Difference Between Identical Twins

    Sorry, every cop drama ever.

    It's such a great conceit for a crime show: guy commits murder; guy denies it; turns out it was guy's identical twin all along; everyone is happy (except murdered dude). Sadly, procedurals are going to have to get some new plotlines, because scientists at Eurofins have finally discovered a way to tell identical twins apart genetically.

  5. Nissan Leaf Owner Arrested for “Stealing” Five Cents Worth of Electricity

    We put "stealing" in quotes because we think this is ridiculous.

    Stealing is bad, mmkay? That's a lesson the Chamblee, Georgia police are trying to teach Kaveh Kamooneh, who plugged his electric car into an outlet at his son's school while he was waiting for the boy to be finished with tennis practice. The sum total of his crimes? About five cents. Must have been a slow day in Georgia.

  7. This Kid Lived Leo DiCaprio’s Life From Catch Me If You Can

    He basically used the film as an instruction manual, honestly.

    Did you watch the Leonardo DiCaprio film Catch Me If You Can, and think, "Gee, that's a great idea. I think I'm going to try that, because Leo makes fraud seem fun!" Well apparently one Scottish kid thought exactly that, and started living the high life, con-artist style.

    No time for love, Inmate Jones!

    If you ever get dragged into a plot to commit robbery, you don't just have to worry about possible jail time, legal fees, or probation if you get caught -- you'll also have to worry that you're not going to be allowed to date anyone anymore. That's apparently a thing a judge can demand of you now.

  9. Oompa Loompas Plead Guilty in Street Fight, This Really Happened

    Oompa loompa doopity de dight, don't go out drinking and get in a fight.

    We always knew the Oompa Loompas had a mean streak in them, so we're not surprised to hear that two Oompa Loompas have been charged for their part in a brawl outside a nightclub. We were surprised to find out that it was actually just two guys dressed as Oompa Loompas, and not real Oompa Loompas, because Oompa Loompas aren't real.
