Man Tries To Recreate Up With A Bunch Of Balloons And A Dream!

Filed under: InspirationDisneyYouTube

What's that in the air? Is it a bird? Is it a plane? IT'S A TRAPPE!

Jonathan Trappe might not have been trying to float to Paradise Falls with a young Wilderness Explorer, but he was attempting the lofty goal of being the first person to cross the Atlantic with the use of cluster balloons!

With over 300 helium balloons, Jonathan left Caribou, Maine attempting to make it across the pond, but unfortunately he had to make a landing in New Foundland instead, coming up short of his goal.

Well, regardless, it sounds like he had an adventure straight out of Up!

Ch-ch-check out his epic take off…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Rare 6-Clawed Lobster Donated To Maine State Aquarium

Lola is one special lobster!

She has six claws!! And as if that weren't crazy enough… five of them are on one hand!

Lola was caught off the coast of Hyannis, Massachusets and was donated to the Maine State Aquarium.

The four-pound lobster is about ten years old. She was caught by Richard Figueiredo and Captain Peter Brown on the lobster boat The Rachel Leah.

The boat is actually part of the Discovery series Lobster Wars! We wonder if this will make the show??

So cool Lola gets to live her days out at an aquarium instead of ending up in a pot of boiling water!

Check out the video (above) to get a glimpse of this rare lobster!

There are two defendants in the Zumba prostitution scandal in Kennebunk, Maine.

Alexis Wright, the prostitute, and her business partner Mark Strong, the pimp, are being tried separately.

Strong's lawyers tried to have his case dismissed on the grounds authorities didn't turn over evidence to the defense and that the cops didn't provide proper evidence when seeking search warrants for the dance studio/sex parlor.

The judge was all "nope!" and the trial is on!!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal Matters

Gay Marriage Legal Maine Midnight

When the clock strikes midnight tonight, a lot of golden carriages are going to be transforming into plain yellow minivans!

Because hundreds of citizens of Maine are going to become family men and women as gay marriage finally becomes legal!

And you thought the New Year's Rockin' Eve countdown was exciting!

Portland and Falmouth are planning on re-opening their notary offices at twelve on the dot to hand out marriage certificates to happy, patient couples.

Other cities like Bangor, Augusta, and Brunswick will be holding special hours all weekend.

This will officially make Maine the seventh state where gay marriage is completely legal.

Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase Maine attraction! LOLz!

Congratz everyone!
