Pasta is typically one of the cheaper entrees at a restaurant. In fact you can often get an endless bowl of it for ten bucks at your local Olive Garden.
But a "plate" of pasta on the menu at Bice, an eatery in Midtown Manhattan, is anything but inexpensive. The dish, featuring homemade tagliolini pasta topped with two pounds of fresh lobster and black truffles, will run you the year-accurate sum of $2,013.
It was 2:30 AM Sunday morning and Austin Lee Westfall Presler wanted to keep the party going, but the South Carolina man had run out of supplies. What's a party animal to do? Bust down the front door of the local convenience store, which was closed, and take what you need, that's what. Apparently.
Feng's son Xiao had been a good student with a promising future. But according to Feng, who lives with his son in China, Xiao got really into video games in high school and his obsession was such that he hadn't found a job or moved out of the house by 23.
Not long ago, Tess Guthrie's cat was hissing so loud that the sound woke her from her slumber. And when the 22-year old Australian mom did open her eyes she saw a six foot python had wrapped itself around the arm of her six-month-old daughter, who was sleeping right next to her.
Back in 2009, when Evan was seven, his family adopted a cat named Macha from City Kitties, an animal rescue in Philadelphia. The boy immediately took to the feline, and to show City Kitties his appreciation for his new pet, he wrote them a nice handwritten thank you note which included a $46.75 donation that he had saved up from his allowance.
For the past seven years, Doritos has sponsored a 'Crash The Super Bowl' contest in which amateur ad-makers compete to have their 30 second spots for the tortilla chips played during the big game. For 2013's Super Bowl commercial, the competition is fierce.
Most Subway sandwich shops don't have ketchup. While it may seem weird that a fast food chain would ignore such a popular condiment, when you consider Subway doesn't offer burgers or fries it makes more sense.
Peter Welsh and Dwayne Doolan really wanted to steal some jewels on New Year's Eve. So the Australians first threw spark plugs at the windows of Wrights Classique Jewellers in Queensland in hopes that would break them in. When that didn't work, they tried to barge in through the back door -- only to find themselves in the neighboring Animal Welfare League.
Aric and Sean Hale have a pretty unique love life. The 28-year-old twins share the one 27-year-old girlfriend, just like they used to have to share birthday presents. Guess it's true what they say -- your childhood really can damage you.
After Rebeca Bernardo's mother suffered a debilitating stroke, the 18-year-old tried waitressing and other "legitimate" forms of employment to raise funds for mom's care.
But when that wasn't enough, Bernardo turned to the world's oldest profession. Inspired by fellow Brazilian Catarina Migliorini, who raised $ 780,000 by auctioning off her virginity, Bernardo decided to put her first time on the block.
They call New Year's Eve amateur night because it's a night where nearly everyone parties hard, not just those who have regular experience with intoxicants. This means that it's a pretty safe bet that some idiotic stuff is going to go down, sometimes even before the ball drops.
