Overturned Truck Spills Millions of Bees on the Highway

Ian Terry—Reuters Beekeepers wait to start clearing out the scene of semi-trailer truck that overturned with a cargo of bees on a highway in Lynnwood, Wash., on Apr. 17, 2015.

"Lots of stinging going on," according to the Washington State Department of Transportation

A semi-truck loaded with honeybees overturned on a Washington state highway Friday morning, spilling boxes containing millions of the insects near the town of Lynnwood. Beekeepers and firefighters arrived on the scene shortly after the 3:30 a.m. crash, the Seattle Times reports.

The truck was carrying 458 hives, holding an estimated 14 million bees. The entire load was worth around $92,000. Beekeepers managed to recover some of the hives, but as the insects became agitated, firefighters killed them by spraying a mixture of foam and water on the hives.

With many bees still on the loose, the Washington State Department of Transportation advised drivers to keep windows and vents closed.

He puts on a dress, but she brings out a very special guest

  • Anna Kendrick’s perfect hair
  • LL Cool J going “Hercules! Hercules!”

Watch the clip and we’re sure you’ll find plenty of your own reasons.

30 Million People Have Watched This Video of a Man Stuck in His Seatbelt

And we highly recommend you watch it too

When Clint Chadbourne found himself stuck in a snagged seatbelt, he didn’t know the ordeal would end up delighting millions of people. His main focus was really just how to get out of his daughter’s car — or, as he says in his strong Maine accent, her “cah.”

Chadbourne’s daughter, Kelly, filmed his two-minute struggle, the Portland Press Herald reports. His wife, Bonnie, went back and forth between trying to help him and just laughing hysterically. Since Bonnie shared the video on Facebook on April 6, it’s racked up 30.5 million views.

In a Facebook post Wednesday, Bonnie said it was never her intention for the clip to go viral — but she’s glad it has spread so much laughter:

The comments are wonderful, when someone writes that they were having a bad day and after seeing the video they have tears running down their face and they mean happy tears it makes us feel very humble. To have touched so many with a smile is a wonderful thing and we are so thankful. So many of us have daily struggles and to get a distraction is a gift we all welcome.

Instagram Now Allows Photos of Women Breast-Feeding

Instagram Changes Terms Of Service, Stirs Anger Among Users

Updated guidelines clarify what images users can and cannot share

Last year, one mom said she had her Instagram account shut down after commenters complained about photos that showed her breast-feeding. She said she got her account back up and running after launching a social-media campaign.

Now, in an updated set of guidelines, Instagram has clarified that photos of “women actively breast-feeding” are 100% permitted. Photos of post-mastectomy scars are fair game too. (Images of “sexual intercourse, genitals and close-ups of fully nude buttocks” are banned.)

Breast-feeding photos on Instagram have long been a point of contention. In October actress Alyssa Milano posted a photo that showed her breast-feeding her baby and said she was surprised that it sparked backlash. Milano said she “got really sad” that she received so many hateful messages about her choice to share the photo.

The new guidelines also remind users not to share messages that “support or praise terrorism, organized crime or hate groups” or that offer illegal services.

Louis C.K. Apologized to Sarah Palin for Mean Tweets He Wrote 5 Years Ago

"I'm not an insult guy. I don't go after people, it's not what I do."

Back in 2010, comedian Louis C.K. tweeted some pretty nasty things about Sarah Palin. (We won’t repeat those things here, but trust us.) Five years later, he decided to apologize to Palin when he ran into her at the Saturday Night Live 40th anniversary party.

“I’ve never in a million years apologized for anything I’ve said,” C.K. told Howard Stern in a recent interview. But this time, he said, “Something came over me emotionally.” Palin was the one who approached C.K. to tell him she thought he was funny — and that’s when he decided to say sorry for the Twitter rant.

“I’m not an insult guy,” he told Stern. “I don’t go after people, it’s not what I do.”

Palin responded to C.K.’s apology by joking, “Well, you’re a vile person.” But she also seemed to genuinely appreciate the gesture.

“Maybe it surprises people, but I was sincerely humbled and appreciative,” Palin told People.

Oh, she also said if he ever came to Alaska she’d take him fishing. So fingers crossed that actually happens.

These Photos Prove Man v. Food Host Adam Richman Is Not Strictly Vegan After All

He calls himself an omnivore

A few days ago, we reported that Adam Richman of Man v. Food fame had gone vegan. But Richman wants everyone to know that he is not strictly vegan and is still very much an omnivore.

He put the rumor to rest by sharing a photo of himself going to town on some In-N-Out Burger:

Richman reportedly went with a vegan diet to help get himself in shape to play soccer. But it’s more of a temporary dietary choice than a complete lifestyle overhaul. He emphasized this point in a few recent Instagram posts:

While I love the Pacific, the Sunsets & the pretty people, this is still one of the most beautiful sights in LA.

So, for those of you worried that Richman would never again indulge in insanely decadent meat monstrosities, you can breathe easy.
