Woman uses Tinder after being stranded on mountain, matches with man who has bulldozer and saves her life

One woman decided to use Tinder in a new way that saved her life.

After extreme weather caused her camper to get stuck on the side of a mountain in Northern Norway, Lonia Häger and her friend decided to use a few unconventional methods.

Häger was traveling to Lofoten after visiting the North Cape, which is the most northern point of Europe. But according to her Instagram account, she recapped how while she and her friend, Phil, traveled down the mountainside, “it started raining…the street iced up that we even couldn’t stay on one point!”

Both created a Tinder account for Häger and in just five minutes she matched with Stian Lauluten, who not only lived nearby but also had a bulldozer.

Lauluten “shaped lines in the ice” for the camper to travel through and then took them to a nearby parking lot.”

But that wasn’t all. Lauluten also helped them fix their tires with spikes the next day to prevent future similar incidents. Häger calls him a hero.

Let’s hope the two were able to share a meal over the ordeal. Lauluten earned it!

Neighbors decide to sue man over psychedelic paint job on $500,000 home

A man in Florida is currently facing a lawsuit after he decided to alter his $500,000 home in a colorful way but his neighbors found it be “unsightly and obnoxious.

Located in an upscale community in Naples, the house has been redecorated with multi-colored paint across the exterior, including the mailbox, garage, driveway and front lawn.

Neighbors report how the owner, Jeffrey Leibman, spent about a week making the alterations that rocked the community to their core.

“Obviously has a drug issue or something going on because I have just never seen anything like this in my life,” said fellow neighbor Alan Klawans, to WZVN-TV. 

Or maybe Alan, just maybe the guy is trying to just live his life in a colorful way. Maybe the whole “omar” thing is a riddle? Maybe Jeffery just like rainbows?

Parents sue school after faculty expelled teen for believing she may be gay due to rainbow-themed birthday

Cheeky messages etched on exactly 53 cakes make a bold statement to Republican Senators

A bakery delivered 53 cakes for each Republican senator yesterday with a pretty clear cut message, and let’s just say it was not sugar coated.

The idea began with a GoFundMe organized by a Colin Bishopp, with the goal of sending out all 53 Republican senators a sweet gift.

“Republicans in the US Senate refuse to allow witnesses in President Trump’s impeachment trial, so let’s deliver them John Bolton’s testimony on a cake. Maybe that will make the truth easier for them to swallow,” the GoFundMe states.

And in just two days, the fundraiser raised $6,724 of its $7,000 goal, just enough to team up the New York-based bakery, with Butter & Scotch, to get the cakes baked and decorated.

The first few cakes were posted, with some of the messages reading:

“You’re in the room where it happens. Let Bolton testify.”

“Hope this makes the truth easier to swallow. Let Bolton testify.”

“This trial is half-baked without witnesses. Let Bolton testify.”

“Don’t go baking my heart. Let Bolton testify.”

Daycare worker writes message in black marker on boy’s body, mother asks internet what she should do

The post quickly went viral and the teacher who allegedly worked at the daycare has since been fired.

Experts reveals how eating too many vegetables too quickly could hurt your health

If you haven’t heard of “Veganuary” it is a growing trend where one strictly adheres to the vegan diet for an entire month which means zero meat or dairy.

And while that all sounds well and good for the new year— your body may not respond so well to such a quick transition in regards to solely vegetables if that’s not your norm.

According to consultant dietitian Ro Huntriss – if one gradually steps up to a vegan diet it can be less dangerous and more beneficial as opposed to just taking the plunge into all-veggie-eating-all-the-time.

Ro shared with LADbible the following:

“If you plan to switch to a vegan diet, there are nutritional considerations to think about before you switch, as otherwise your health could be compromised.”

“For example, some people are quick to cut meat and fish out of their diet, but they do not replace the protein. We need protein for muscle growth and repair, so to maintain your strength it is important this is replaced.

“Protein is an obvious one, but other nutrients such as iron, vitamin B12, omega-3, iodine and selenium are examples of nutrients that could be deficient in a vegan diet without proper planning, which could compromise your health.”

Woman engaged to marry a jumbo jet she has been dating for six years

A woman in Germany is set to marry a jumbo jet she has dated the past six years, claiming it was love at first flight sight.

The 30-year-old saleswoman Michele Köbke said she met her soon to be husband (a Boeing 737-800) at Berlin Tegel Airport in 2014.

Speaking about the embrace, Michele said:

“The time in the hangar was the most beautiful moment of my life and when I was with him, we enjoyed our time together, we kissed and I caressed him. I plan to move into the hangar one day and my biggest dream is to be with ‘Schatz’ and to live with him. I also want to marry him in the hangar and spend the whole night with him. I wouldn’t want to put on a white dress, but dress really smartly with black trousers and a black blazer.”

The couple plans to take off into marriage on March 18 but while some have accepted their relationship, Michele’s family say they do not want to meet the plane.

Michelle doesn’t seem bothered by that and just wants the big day to arrive already.

“I want to have someone marry us and say, ‘do you want to marry your 737-800’ and I say, ‘yes’, we kiss and then I’m immortalised with him and we can be together forever.”

The relationship is an example of obejectophilia where one has a sexual or romantic attraction to an inanimate object.
