Just When You Thought You Heard It All News (8-17-2013)

We've all heard the saying, "actions speak louder than words." Well, this guys actions speak volumes.

You know that old adage about dogs being man’s best friend? Some dog owners are taking it way too seriously.

Case in point: In a case of extremely bad judgement, a man actually rescued his dog before his wife when their boat nearly capsized in rough waters.

Earlier this week, Graham Anley and his wife, Sheryl, were peacefully sailing along the shores of South Africa when they unexpectedly ran into treacherous waters near the Transkei Coast.

As the couple bravely battled rolling waves up to seven meters in height, their boat was swept onto the reef and the only option was to abandon ship.

What Anley did next was either a case of some kind of weird dog love or complete disregard for his spouse or both.

Instead of taking his wife to safety first, Anley instinctively grabbed their nine year old Jack Russell terrier, Rosie, which was wearing a customized doggie life jacket complete with emergency strobe lighting, and quickly swam her ashore (for the record, Jack Russells are terrific swimmers).

Once the pooch was out of harm’s way, he returned to the foundering ship to rescue his wife, whose safety line had snagged on the steering gear. Anley, who is also a sea-rescue volunteer, then used his mobile phone to call for assistance.

A rescue helicopter airlifted the couple and Rosie to a nearby rescue base. The Anleys are planning to revisit the reef later this week to see what they can salvage of their 36-foot yacht.

Whether or not Mrs. Anley is miffed at her husband for rescuing the dog first was not revealed, but wouldn’t you love to watch her face when they retell the story to family and friends?

There is no doubt that Mr. Anley ended up in the dog house......come on, you knew it was coming!

So you think you're a genius huh?

Ask yourself one question. Are you smarter than a 4 year old? Anala Beevers of New Orleans learned the alphabet when she was 14 months old. By 18 months, she had mastered Spanish. At age 4, she now knows the location and capital of each state. Something some adults I know don't know.

Beevers is so smart that she was invited to join MENSA, a group of people, mainly grown ups, who are in the top 2 percent of the population in terms of intelligence. Not only was Beevers invited to join MENSA, but she will also be in the top 1 percent of the group of geniuses.

Her parents wholeheartedly agree that their little Einstein is smarter than them.

“She needs a reality show,” her dad said. “She keeps us on our toes. She’s a handful.”

Really?! Out of all of the aspirations, hopes, and dreams that a parent can have for a child genius, the one that her father picked was, reality show?! 

As for what little Anala wants to be when she grows up? She says she wants to be a nurse so she can help people. I say, Beevers for President in 2052!

This Guy probably has the worst hang over ever.

Jiang Wu was staying at a Bed & Breakfast in Qingdao, China, and had a night so wild that he drunkenly mistook a shipping container for the B&B he was staying in and fell asleep inside it.

To make that kind of mistake, he had to have been more than just drunk. He was probably high too.

When he woke up, the crate had been loaded aboard a cargo ship set for a two week trip to Los Angeles, according to local media sources.

Although the container was sealed, he had a phone and called everyone he knew, including the local police, who arrived on the scene.

"His problem was, that he couldn't tell us which container he was in and there were thousands of them stacked on top of each other," according to a police spokesman. 

Wu kept banging on the crate and police eventually found him in some containers stacked 60 feet high,

"He's very lucky. If he'd been asleep for another hour the next stop would have been America", one docker said. 

Hopefully Wu will stay off the sauce for good. Even though it almost got him a free trip to America.
