See that bench up there? The one that Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort are sitting on?
Ya know,from the most pivotal scene in The Fault in Our Stars!
Well, DUN DUN DUN it's gone missing from Amsterdam.
Someone stole it! How does one steal a bench?!
But, here's the thing, officials from the city didn't even know it was missing for about a month or so!
They only became aware of it's disappearance when fans of the book/film started asking what had happened to it!
Which brings about the question… WHO stole the bench?
It was most likely a couple fans of the film who decided that they wanted it for themselves, so they took it.
BUT it could be as simple as

Art imitating life, perhaps??
Chicago Fire star Jesse Spencer may only play Lt. Matt Casey on TV—but in a dramatic twist of events, he had to take on the role of a real-life hero last week!
His parents and a group of tourists got trapped in an elevator for 45 minutes while touring the Illinois State Capitol on Sunday, so Jesse knew he had to do something!
He aided in the elevator escape by prying open the jammed doors enough to get a cell phone signal to dial 911—continuing to keep the group calm until real firefighters came to the rescue.
In an interview after the incident, the heroic actor revealed:

Is it just us or do they have odd policies in Canada?
Drake has been rolling in the dough ever since he made it big after Degrassi, but what's this about the Canadian government giving him a $300,000 grant for his annual OVO fest?
He clearly can fund it all on his own, but apparently in Canada, this type of funding is totally normal.
A government initiative called

Remember the magical hill that once housed Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa, and Po?
Well that small piece of childhood is no more than a memory now, as the set of Teletubbies has been destroyed due to tourism!
The infamous children's show ended it's run in 2001, however, fans allegedly continued to visit the hill where the series was filmed in Wimpstone, Warwickshire.
The only problem is the set was actually on private property, and owner Rosemary Harding was tired of tourists trespassing:

This is incredible!!
Several tourists were driving through Kruger National Park in South Africa.
They stopped in a line of traffic as a dozen impalas quickly bounded across the road because they were being chased by cheetahs!!
Right as a cheetah was about to grab one impala, it dove right into a person's SUV!!
The people eventually let it out the other side and the impala just walked away, leaving the cheetahs hungry.
It's a once in a lifetime happening, and it was all captured on camera!
Check out the video (above) to see one smart impala make a crazy getaway.

Matthew Perry has a dream! A Field of Dreams that is!
The former Friends actor recently became involved with the Go The Distance Baseball group, an organization that bought the rights to the baseball field from Kevin Costner's famous flick back in 2011. Now, they're looking to build another diamond next door to host training camps and tournaments for national youth baseball!
Sounds like a great idea, right?
Well apparently the local farmers are worried that if they build it, people will come!
The Residential & Agricultural Advisory Committee in Dubuque County, Iowa have expressed major concerns as they believe the traffic brought in from the project will bring in noise pollution and make it difficult to do their jobs.
The group even sent a letter to Matt simply stating:

So sad! And scary!
19 tourists are dead after a horrific hot air balloon crash in Luxor, Egypt.
Hot air balloons may seem safe and slow, but just like any other aircraft, all it takes is one little thing going wrong to cause a disaster.
According to reports, either a loose cable or a minor collision caused a gas explosion that sent the balloon rocketing 300 meters into the sky.
Citizens from the UK, China, Japan, France, Hungary, and Egypt were aboard. Somehow there were two survivors- the pilot and a single tourist who leapt from over 30 feet to the ground below.
