Over $5 Million In Endangered Species Contraband Seized In Hong Kong

Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadEndangeredHunting

Illegal Endangered Animal Contraband

Customs officials in Hong Kong have seized $5.3 million dollars worth of illegal ivory, rhino horns and leopard skins earlier this week.

What's crazy is this is only the second biggest bust this month!!

After being tipped off by mainland China customs officials, Hong Kong's port grabbed 1,120 ivory tusks, 13 rhino horns and five leopard skins.

Everything was hidden inside a container full of wood that originated in Nigeria.

The illegal ivory trade has literally doubled since 2007!!

We seriously cannot believe that people are so willing to senselessly kill such beautiful creatures.

Apparently no one has been arrested so we're hoping someone gets tracked down and tossed in the slammer because this is disgusting!!

Let's hope justice is served!

Passenger Claims He Poisoned EVERYONE On Flight Headed To New Jersey

Filed under: Scary!Travel

united airlines airplane

Absolutely. Terrifying.

Plane terror has taken to new heights today as reports are coming in of a passenger who has claimed that he has "poisoned everyone on board [United Flight 116]."

The plane, which is currently flying from Hong Kong to Newark, is set to land at 1:30pm.

Though law enforcement officials in New York and D.C. are aware and responding, they believe the man may simply be emotionally disturbed as there is no evidence of poison.

According to reports, he is being restrained by others on the plane and will be questioned as soon as authorities can take him into custody after the plane lands.

Let's hope what the authorities suspect is true. But honestly, even if it's nothing, we're sure the passengers will be traumatized for life!! What the heck has this world come to??

woman upset after starbuks spells her name as vagina instead of virginia

Have you ever had a barista at Starbucks misspell your name? Of course you have! The coffee chain is SOO notorious for slipping up on customer names that there are entire Tumblr pages dedicated to their flubs!

Well a young woman by the name of Virginia found out just how bad their mistakes can be when she ordered her drink at a Starbucks in Hong Kong and received a cup with "Vagina" written on it instead!

We can picture it now! "TALL LATTE FOR VAGINA!" LOLz!!

Virginia's sister snapped a picture of the HIGHlarious gaffe and posted it to the company's Facebook page along with a complaint, and the photo has quickly made its way around the internet and gone viral!

We gotta admit, we've seen our fair share of Starbucks slip-ups, but this one easily takes the cake! Ha!
