Ever made a harmless joke that someone took too seriously?
Kazakh mom Anastasia and her hubby thought pushing a stroller carrying her giggling child from inside the car would be a hilarious video to share with family and friends, but when someone shared her video without the full story, social media rose up in arms against these horrible-looking parents! So much for a "private" family video! View Now
At some point in your childhood, we're sure an adult told you not to mess around with fire. Apparently, these people did not get the message. A 12-year-old boy in China strikes a match to light a piece of paper. He then tosses that burning paper into a nearby car, erupting it into flames. The boy says he was just having fun with fire. His parents and the car's owner have since reached an agreement. View Now
Two men at a gas station started a gunfight on Aug. 21. WSB-TV out of Atlanta reports one man got out of his car, and the second man approached him with a gun in his waistband. The first man walked back to his car and grabbed an AK-style pistol. An extreme gun battle ensued, and unfortunately, a woman was caught in the crossfire and was shot in her shoulder. One of the gunmen stayed with her to call 911 while the other ran off.
Nobody looks forward to junk mail... but that isn't an excuse to overreact as harshly as this vengeful Aussie homeowner! Tired of getting this real estate firms' ad leaflets in her mail, the mysterious vandal stockpiled rotten eggs for weeks in an elaborate revenge plot against her "mortal enemy" <eyeroll>. This outrageous stunt cost the business nearly $3,000 in carpet repairs and they're offering cash rewards for leads. View Now
We've seen so many violent crimes go uninterrupted here at RightThisMinute that the miraculous response time of the Brazilian military police is a welcome breath of fresh air. "Jesse" and "James" here are actually felons serving long prison sentences who were released for Father's Day to spend time with their families. Sorry kids, but Daddy would rather rob a market!

We shiver to think of all the unwitnessed crimes before the age of cameras and CCTV. Thankfully, one's British homeowner's precautions back up his terrifying tale of a carload of axe- and crowbar-wielding robbers randomly barging into his house, threatening his family and ransacking his company van.

This isn't the first time we've seen captains lose their boats, but this runaway motorboat chase on Lake Zurich is certainly the most cinematic! It all starts when a tipsy captain (confirmed through breathalyzer) tumbles from his speedboat—now stuck in a sharp left turn. Swiss police patrol boats have a hard time keeping up with the smaller, swifter craft, so one daring officer attempts an epic stunt worthy of a Jason Bourne movie.
The vast majority of people on the street legitimately do need your help... that's why we're glad Kazakh police busted this two-armed man faking a one-arm disability to get into your wallet.
Our inexperienced German convenience store bandit could probably learn a few things from that one-armed hustler, though. Happily, for everyone involved, he's so bad at robbing stores everyone and the elderly pepper-spraying clerk gets a clean shot of his face!
If you've ever tried to go the wrong way through a turnstile at a subway, train or concert, you know just how impossible they are to budge! An elite Ukrainian SWAT team found this out the hard way when they attempted a sneaky surprise raid on a border guard office... until they met Mr. Turnstile who turned their very serious anti-corruption sting into slapstick comedy for Russian TV.
Thankfully, there were no turnstiles in sight or this attic-dwelling whiskey burglar might have gotten away from Brazilian police.
There's a good reason the 16th birthday is so "sweet". We're talking a driver's license, wheels, mobility, independence! Even parents win because they're no longer a free taxi service. We guess Irish mom Michelle McSweeney was hoping to speed along the process for her adult daughter Megan when they both pile into the family car for what turns out to be an explicative-filled, terrified and hysterical trip around a Dublin parking lot.
It's easy to assume life on the street is hardest on stray animals. They've got to scrounge up food, water and dodge traffic, right? The heartbreaking truth is that our loveable cats and dogs' worst enemy can also be their "best friend". View Now
You know that feeling in chess where you suddenly realize just how stupid your last move was? That's a real-life feeling we expect these bumbling Chinese and Russian criminals experienced when they realized just how badly their little police chase and pizzeria robbery were going. But nope, nobody cuts their losses and flips the chessboard here! They bravely foolishly keep going and hope things will turn out better... all the way to the bitter, embarrassing checkmate.
Both of these crimes happened in the middle of the day and when these women least expected. A man walking into a restaurant spotted a 72-year-old woman wearing a gold necklace. Once he found his target, the man lurked outside the front doors until she left the restaurant. Then, he violently attacked her and ran off with the gold necklace. View Now
You know "The Rock" as the inescapable prison island in the San Francisco Bay. Though Alcatraz was the last place any of its 300+ permanent residents wanted to be, this famously isolated island is still a tourist magnet. But even if you spring for a pricey deluxe tour of the island, you'll never get a bird's-eye view as epic as this drone-captured 360° VR-compatible video! View Now
Two rules straight from the Man Code we can all live by. (1) Don't mess with a guy's girl and (2) don't mess with his sports.
For anyone else in this Chinese hair salon, this lady's haircut looks pretty routine. But for her suspicious and aggressive boyfriend, the male stylist is a bit too chatty, flirty and suggestive with his hip placement. View Now
There's nothing a little glue won't fix, right?
When this adorable girl does something terribly naughty with mom's red lipstick, she makes a hilarious foolproof plan with dad that'll put Humpty-Dumpty back together again! Don't tell her, but we're guessing the broken makeup won't be the first thing that'll give her heartwarming little conspiracy away.
Keldren Joshua was released from federal prison after serving 10 years of his 15-years-to-life sentence.

What is being alleged as a mafia hit, turned one woman's food cart full of corn-on-the-cob into Russian seafood? Bullies dumped the cart into a nearby canal. A boat was able to retrieve some of the inventory, but the cart and its refrigerator were destroyed . View Now
You might have seen the #askadad trending hashtag this Father's Day after news broke that the internet is growing into the top forum for question-asking instead of using our parents. But let's be honest, this wannabe lumberjack probably would've had better luck and escaped some awkward insurance claims had he brought in someone with a little more experience (AKA dad) to this DIY tree-felling fail.
This angry Finn's dad could have probably warned him there was only one possible outcome in this insane and amusing rock-versus-excavator matchup. View Now

As the locals continue to approach, the officers must work to maintain control over the guys in handcuffs and keep the other guys from attacking. This is definitely a struggle. Eventually, more police cars showed up to assist and four of the men were arrested. View Now
A 17-year-old teen runs off of the train, straight toward a group of five people. In the security footage, you can see he confronts the people and starts squirting them with acid.

There is no word yet on the attacker's motive, but he was recently sentenced to eight years in prison. View Now
