Chad Rissman and his uncle Darrin Vick managed to catch a shark, but their excitement quickly disappeared when a bald eagle swooped in and nabbed the fish away from them.
Working in tandem, Chad and Darrin had reeled the shark all the way to their boat, but the eagle – named Eugene – took advantage of a free moment. Chad and Darrin cut the line and got the hook away from the eagle as it dined, and though they missed out on a catch, they were okay with the story.
We Don't Think This Guy Is Too Bright
Well, he's a piece of work all right, just not the kind that lights up and makes a big bang. It all happened before three A.M. in early July as a way of – get this – protesting fireworks! He didn't like that people were celebrating with fireworks.
In Florida, fireworks are legal on only three days, and the Fourth of July is one of them. Pretending to be a firework, on the other hand, is going to run afoul of any city's noise ordinance, especially at such a sleepy hour.
That's an Emergency for Some People
If you've had a long week and need to relax with some Final Fantasy VII Remake, the worst thing that could happen is the Playstation refusing to comply. Of course, you wouldn't be on fire or in mortal danger, so you still shouldn't call 911.
One Florida man didn't get that memo and decided that the best way to figure it out was to call the emergency personnel. The 911 person almost certainly didn't know the answer, unless he was a gamer himself.
The Only Reasonable Response
Don't get between a woman and her “frozen dairy treat.” One Jacksonville woman asked her man to buy her a McFlurry only to get a negative response. The next logical step? Set his car on fire.
And that's exactly what she did. She poured both alcohol and gasoline on the man's car, lit it on fire, and then ran off. That's not the kind of behavior that warrants a McFlurry, lady. She also, according to reports, threatened to “blow it up,” meaning the car, but was unsuccessful if she did attempt to do so.
It's a Common Sound in Florida
When a neighbor heard what appeared to be a woman's voice screaming “Let me out! Ohhh! Ohhh! Ohhh!,” there was nothing else to do but call the police. Who knows what could have been going on inside there?
When the police arrived to investigate, they discovered that the sounds were coming from Rambo, the neighbor's pet parrot. Everybody had a laugh, and the police returned to their routes. It was all a simple mistake – unless that's just what the parrot wants you to think.
