10-Year-Old Saves Family with Skills He Learned Playing Mario Kart

The next time someone tells you that playing video games is useless, show them this! When his grandmother passed out behind the wheel of a car going 60 miles an hour, a 10-year-old boy grabbed the wheel and took over, using the skills he learned while playing Mario Kart!

Gryffin saw the car start to veer toward oncoming traffic, so he grabbed the wheel to steer the vehicle away -and into a ditch. His father, Sean Sanders, considers Gryffin a hero.

The car slowed down in the ditch filled with mud, and he and his brother were unharmed. Passersby stopped to call 911 and help his great grandmother. Sean said there easily could have been a head-on collision.

“The car could have rolled. There could’ve been, you know, a travesty of an injury or even possibly a fatality,” Sean said. “The good news is we will never have to know.”

Luckily, this is not the first time Gryffin has driven. He says he learned a lot playing the video game “Mario Kart”.

“And, I’m pretty good at go kart driving,” Gryffin said.



Harrison Ford Talks About Another Indiana Jones Movie


While most people consider Crystal Skull to be the final nail in the coffin of the Indiana Jones Franchise, there are still rumblings of a fifth movie. It wasn’t so long ago that George Lucas had mentioned he was working on a script. Now, Harrison Ford has told the London Telegraph his thoughts on reprising the role.

“We’ve seen the character develop and grow over a period of time and it’s perfectly appropriate and okay for him to come back again with a great movie around him where he doesn’t necessarily have to kick as much ass. To me, what was interesting about the character was that he prevailed, that he had courage, that he had wit, that he had intelligence, that he was frightened and that he still managed to survive. That I can do.”


Superman Man of Steel 2:


Batman will be an older Bruce Wayne. Not a young new energy but an older veteran. Josh Brolin is a name getting tossed around. Also Ryan Gosling (doesn’t fit at all) the name that has been getting some positive buzz is Joe Manganiello. He is on true Blood. Also almost won the roll of Superman before Henry Cavill got it.


Thor 2 New Trailer is out.

Marvel Has movies planned through 2021:

We all know about Thor, Cap 2, The Avengers Age of Ultron, Ant Man and Guardian’s of the Galaxy. However there are other films Marvel is eyeing.


Doctor Strange is one of the first films Marvel will be tackling in Phase Three, and there have also been rumors about a Black Panther movie for years.  Beyond that, though, it’s anyone’s guess.  The Avengers 3 is all but guaranteed to hit in 2017 or 2018 and we will likely see more sequels to Thor and Captain America, plus follow-ups for Guardians and Ant-Man if those movies take off.  Iron Man, however, remains a question mark since Robert Downey Jr. has yet to sign on for a further standalone film.  Feige recently told us that Marvel wouldn’t be announcing its 2016 and 2017 titles until next year, so it appears that we’ll have to wait quite a while for confirmation.

Suspect: Alleged victims 'haters' mad about his 'way with the ladies'

FORT PIERCE, Fla., Aug. 7 (UPI) --

Police in Florida said a man accused of threatening people

with a knife told officers those who reported him were

"haters" jealous of his "way with the ladies."


Fort Piece police said officers responded July 27 to a report

of a man with a knife threatening customers at the

Cobb's Landing restaurant in Fort Pierce, reported Wednesday.


A manager at the restaurant told officers Robert Rock, 50,

had been shouting at customers and the manager saw the man

pull a knife and threaten to kill a patron.

Rock, who hails from Linden, N.J.,

initially refused to speak to officers.


"He then began saying he didn`t do anything wrong,

the people who were complaining on him were just haters

because he had a way with the ladies and they should be arrested,

not him," the police report states.

"Then he stated he would use the Zimmerman defense because

he was streetwise and he knew how to work the system."


A man told officers he came to the restaurant to pick up his wife,

who was attending a baby shower, and he witnessed Rock

harassing several of the women at the shower and refusing

their requests to leave them alone. The man said Rock eventually

drew a knife and threatened to kill members of the group.

Rock was taken to the St. Lucie County jail on a charge of

aggravated assault.


Ohio Man Calls 911 Over Beer Dispute.

After calling 911 to complain that his ex-wife was withholding five cans of Milwaukee’s Best beer, a tipsy Ohio man hit on the female emergency operator, asking for her “personal phone number” and remarking, “You sound kinda pretty.”

John Bansley, 46, was arrested Monday morning on an open container charge, shortly after purchasing a six-pack at a market in Avon Lake. After being cited by police, Bansley was transported to the home of his former spouse, who agreed to take custody of him (and his remaning five beers).

But when the woman refused his subsequent request to turn over the beer, Bansley called the Avon Police Department for help in recovering his suds. While simultaneously quarreling with his ex-wife, Bansley told the police operator, “It’s a fight over a beer.” what happens next you have to hear. Play the clip scott!


Play audio CLIP of 911 call


When the patrolman arrived at the residence, Bansley was arrested for misuse of the 911 system. Seen in the above mug shot, Bansley pleaded no contest Tuesday to that misdemeanor count and the open container rap. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail, though 25 days of that term were suspended. So Bansley should be free tomorrow

Is this the worst hangover ever?

A 64-year-old man has told how he passed out after a heavy night drinking and woke up to find that his penis was missing.

Neighbours of Geraldo Ramos claim that he was attacked by a dog as he stumbled around the Dominican Republic naked while drunk.

But Mr Ramos, of Santiago, doesn't believe their version of events and is none-the-wiser as to how he came to be dismembered.


He told a local television station that all he remembers is waking up and being rushed to hospital for emergency surgery.

The dog which is said to have attacked him has not been traced, nor indeed has Mr Ramos's penis.


Mr Ramos now has to wear a catheter and was filmed recuperating at his home.

He says that he has learned his lesson - Mr Ramos told Noticias Sin that he is to lay off the drink from now on.

Last week we had a dog eat a mans nut and now this week a mans junk? mans best friend is turning on us!

Animal Attack Mike has Nothing on this Guy!

On July 29, Erik Norrie was vacationing with his family in the Bahamas when he went spearfishing for their dinner. A nearby shark sized him up, declared him a meaty wuss, and took a huge bite out of the Florida man's left leg.

Norrie recalled the ordeal for My Fox Tampa Bay:

"All of the sudden I felt this [crunch] on the back of my leg. And just as I looked back, he was just finishing his bite and ripping and swimming off, and you could see a piece of my leg in his mouth. My first reaction was, 'Aaaahhh!' And I real quickly flipped my right foot into the shallowest water I could get in and I stood up and I picked my leg up out of the water."

He was losing blood, and fast.

"I immediately threw the spear down with the fish because there was an enormous pool of blood around me and that shark was swimming all through the blood, sort of looking around, for more," continued Norrie.


A doctor, vacationing from San Diego, just happened to be within three minutes of them and helped the family get Norrie to shore and to a medical facility, and then to Jackson Hospital in Miami.

"That was a tough ride," said Norrie. "I really did think I was going to die."

Yet, this survival story might be one of least interesting things about Mr. Erik Norrie. Near the end of My Fox Tampa Bay's report, we also learn that the Largo resident was:

  • Struck by lightning once.

  • Bitten on the right leg by a rattlesnake.

  • Punched by a monkey.

  • Twice.

Way to bury the lede.
