“There are no coincidences in life everything happens for a reason”
In the last decade the sudden reemergence of the Ben Franklin ‘fro has seen a decline in teen pregnancies, gun crime, and the highest stock surge in our nation’s history. Whether it’s saving beer from drowning in the flood waters of Hurricane Katrina, Or young white girls from a house in suburbs of Cleveland, A little bit of Ben Franklin lives on. Although the famed Ben Franklin beer quote is a simplification of what he actually stated.
“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.“
“Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards, there it enters the roots of the vines, to be changed into wine, a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy.”

So, What were you doing on Thanksgiving eve (November 24) 1971? Preparing for family dinner the next day with turkey or ham? Purchasing potatoes, yams, and corn? Baking pies? Well, if you were D.B. Cooper, you were in seat 18C on Northwest Airlines flight 305 from Portland, Oregon to Sea-Tac (Seattle-Tacoma) Airport preparing to extort $200,000 in twenty dollar bills and four parachutes by handing the flight attendant a letter saying you were armed with a bomb and you will blow up the plane if your needs aren’t met. He also ordered the rear door to be unlocked and the plane to fly low and at a slow speed.
D.B. Cooper, also known as Dan Cooper, was wearing a dark suit and dark sunglasses and was later called a “gentleman” by the flight attendant after the hijacking. At Sea-Tac Airport, he was granted his request and released all thirty six passengers and several flight crew. He told the pilot and the rest of the flight crew to fly to Mexico. They landed in Reno, Nevada with Cooper gone from the plane. He dropped from the passenger stairs into the Cascade Mountains of Washington state.
As the plane reached ten thousand feet with gusting winds and freezing rain driving into the boeing 727, Cooper, who was mistakenly called “D.B. Cooper” by reporters, leaped out of the plane and cemented his name in history.

Here are some of the best ones around but you might want to say a little prayer before you scroll through them all.

Could anyone in their right mind walk past this sign and not have a little snigger to themselves? Come on, just a little one which no one else will even really notice. Oh, please yourself then but you know what we are talking about here, and it is more to do with palms than psalms.
It must be great to be Lady Gaga, mustn’t it? Apart from the money, the fame and the wigs you can wear literally anything you want. All you need to do is rummage in a collection of pathetic old fancy dress outfits and pull out whatever comes to hand first of all. If only we were all as brave as this we could wear weird Lady Gaga outfits like those below.
This Blog Rules has more pictures of WTF lady Gaga outfits.

You know what it’s like. You’ve got an interview coming up on German TV and literally nothing to wear. As you flick through your wardrobe you get depressed as nothing looks quite right. Ah, but what is that green jacket lying forgotten in a corner and croaking? That’s right, possibly the worst of the awful Lady Gaga outfits we have seen is the Kermit the frog coat. Bizarre, green and somehow rather spooky.
