College Student Breaks Record for Crushing Eggs with His Head!
A freshman at the Georgia Institute of Technology cracked the Guinness World Record for "Most Eggs Crushed With The Head" when he smashed 142 eggs in one minute.
Scott Damerow, from Corpus Christi, Tex., appeared on truTV's "Guinness World Records Gone Wild" in March, where he broke the previous record of 130 eggs, Caller.com reported.
In the video, Damerow rhythmically moves down a table, breaking each shell as a live audience cheers him on. The former high school soccer star had always wanted a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records.
"I'm used to heading soccer balls in," he told truTV. "I figured I might as well use my hard head to break a world record."
But egg-cracking is not for the soft-skulled.
“My head felt pretty numb after that,” Damerow said afterwords. “I didn’t even realize I got cut by an egg shell because I had so much adrenaline.”

"It's going to be dangerous, but look at me going in there anyway. I think that for me, it was the first time I ever kind of noticed that in myself.

A 22-year-old woman who posted a photo to Reddit.com, which appears to show her hanging from a cliff at the Grand Canyon, has attracted 3341 comments on the site and nearly two million views on Imgur.com, since it went up on November 15th. Samantha Busch's caption says it all: "Mom was worried about my trip to the Grand Canyon, I sent her this picture." She told ABC News, "For five days up before I went on this trip, she was worried about us visiting the Grand Canyon, because 'people are dumb, they fall off, the wind blows over them the edge.' So... I found a cool little spot that I could sneak into, and lean back and look like I am falling off, and I thought that would be a great picture to send back home to my parents, who were worried about me." Her mother Rebecca said, "My heart just dropped for 30 seconds." (ABC News)
9 year-old girl Blowing Away the Boys
Video posted by a Utah dad of his 9-year-old daughter playing football with boys two years older than her and outrunning them all has gone viral, and it's raised questions about whether it's safe. Yahoo! Sports reports that it began last year when Sam Gordon wanted to run with the older kids and keep up with her brother. The coaches in the local tackle football league let her do it as a lark, and were shocked to find that she could outrun all the older boys. And when they put her into a game, they were amazed by her ability to cut in and out while running and find a path through. They drafted her as a member of the team, and she ended up running for 25 touchdowns and 10 conversions in her first season. The questions some are asking, though, is whether this girl, who weighs less than 60 pounds, should be playing tackle football against bigger, stronger boys. When asked about the tackling, Sam's father, Brent Gordon, told Yahoo! Sports, "I started her out in soccer at 4 years old and we would play out in the yard. And my son's friends were pretty aggressive and rough. She could really handle a lot of the physical play. There were some games where she'd fall down and just keep going. She would get kicked in the face, kicked in the gut and just keep going." Gordon also said Sam loves to tackle, and only had to come out of a game once after being shaken up by a hit, but then went back in after a few plays. This video is amazing!

Kellie Pickler Shaves Her Head!
Country star Kellie Pickler is causing quite a buzz today after shaving off all her hair.
However, it’s not a new look she’s trying out, or a cry for help like Britney Spears’ stunt back in 2007. It’s quite the opposite actually.

We were the goodbye clip there and I don't know. We just never dreamed that all those people like Charlie Daniels and Larry Gatlin, that he would put on googles and sit in a baby pool!

Randy Travis NAKED during DWI arrest in Texas
This has been one tough year for country singer Randy Travis. The singer is currently involved in a vicious divorce with his ex-wife, he has one arrest under is belt for public intoxication and he’s now adding another arrest, this time for DWI.
Travis was arrested Tuesday night outside Tioga, Texas, for driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor, and retaliation and obstruction, a felony. Click here to see his mugshot...
State troopers responded to a call at 11:18 p.m. reporting a man lying on the road outside of the town of Tioga. Travis had been involved in a single-car accident, police said.
They discovered Travis at the scene with a “strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath and several signs of intoxication” and arrested him for DWI, according to the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office.
On the way to the station, Travis allegedly threatened to shoot and kill the troopers, which resulted in an additional charge of retaliation and obstruction.
Travis was brought to the station naked, though it’s unclear whether Travis was discovered naked or somehow disrobed later, Sgt. Ricky Wheeler of the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office told ABC News.
Travis’ mug shot shows him with a black eye and cuts on his face. Wheeler said police didn’t know if the bruises were the result of the car accident or if he was like that before.
“That’s just the way he was brought into our jail,” Wheeler said.
Travis, 53, was booked and held overnight, then released Wednesday after posting a total of $21,500 bond, $20,000 of which was for the felony charge.
Kenny Chesney "Look-A-Like Kicked out of show
If you look anything like Kenny Chesney, you may want to steer clear from the singer’s Brothers of the Sun headlining tour! A Tennessee fan learned that the hard way over the weekend when he was escorted out of a Nashville tour stop for apparently looking too similar to the ‘Come Over’ singer.
“Just got kicked out of K.C concert because drunk people thought I was actually him. no refund. ch 4 &fox want to talk2me. so mad,” Nathan Blankenship, the singer’s ‘spitting image,’ tweeted following the ordeal.
“I think the way they handled it made it seem worse, like they were really escorting Kenny Chesney through the crowd,” the concert-goer tells Nashville TV station WKRN of his being kicked out. The fan was approached by LP Security four hours after arriving to the arena, with officials claiming he was ”purposefully trying to impersonate a celebrity.”
However, it doesn’t seem that Blankenship’s intention was to fool fans into thinking he’s actually Chesney.
“Is it because I wear the hat?” asks the fan, who was wearing a blue cut-off shirt and straw cowboy hat at the concert. “I see a million of these hats here. I’ve worn baseball caps before and people still want to have pictures made [with me], but it’s never caused a problem. I can’t believe they think I’m actually him. Why would Mr. Chesney be in the crowd when Tim McGraw is singing?” See the picture of Nathan and decide for yourself....

Hank Williams Jr. Pulled From Monday Night Football!
Hank Williams, Jr.'s comments he made about the President during his appearance on Fox & Friends yesterday (Monday, October 3rd) have gotten the singer yanked from Monday Night Football. Hank has famously sung the "Are you ready for some football?" theme song since 1989.
Hank criticized President Obama and Speaker of the House John Boehner for playing a round of golf together by saying, "That's like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu."
Also said that Obama and Joe Biden are "the enemy."
ESPN told CBS Sports, "We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and as a result we have decided to pull the open from tonight's telecast."
Hank issued a statement to The Tennessean last night, saying, "Some of us have strong opinions and are often misunderstood. My analogy was extreme - but it was to make a point. I was simply trying to explain how stupid it seemed to me - how ludicrous that pairing was. They're polar opposites and it made no sense. They don't see eye-to-eye and never will. I have always respected the office of the President.
Every time the media brings up the tea party it's painted as racist and extremists - but there's never a backlash - no outrage to those comparisons... Working class people are hurting - and it doesn't seem like anybody cares. When both sides are high-fiving it on the ninth hole when everybody else is without a job - it makes a whole lot of us angry. Something has to change. The policies have to change."

Sugarland Saved by Stage Manager and Prayer Circle
Sugarland and their band narrowly escaped becoming victims of last weekend's deadly storm at the Indiana State Fair. The duo are opening up about that night's events, crediting their stage manager, Hellen Rollens, for literally saving their lives. Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush were on their way to the stage when Hellen made a last minute decision to hold a prayer circle before the duo's performance.
Sugarland's manager, Gail Gellman, told the Associated Press, "Everybody was standing in a prayer circle getting ready to go onstage, and (as Hellen) was walking down the ramp, the stage fell. So her decision to hold them for literally a minute saved every band member and crew's life."
Gail added that others behind the scenes were encouraging the band to begin their set, but Hellen's gut instinct saved the day.
Ultimately six people were killed and dozens injured in the 70-mile-per-hour gust of wind that took down the stage.
On August 16th Sugarland posted a letter on their website where they announce plans for a private memorial and their decision to get back on the road despite their demolished tour set.
Here is the letter in its entirety:
"Dear Fans, Family and Friends,
We have taken a couple of days to try and even begin to emotionally process the magnitude and gravity of the tragedy in Indiana on Saturday. While the path to healing from this type of trauma and loss is long and winding, we wanted to reach out and update you on where we are and how we are.
We are in the process of planning a private memorial in Indiana, to honor those fans who died. We would first like to hold space so that their families can have time to go through their own services and memorials. Until that time we are holding vigil for them. We join them on their mourning benches. And we stand in the gap asking God to offer them peace and healing. For those suffering from injury we hold you up with prayers for complete healing of your own.
We are also addressing our own specific healing. Our road family experienced its traumas together. While we all scattered to our given families for their comfort, the trauma we experienced together binds us in a unique way that we share only with each other and those who were there. There is healing in our being together. There is healing in our working together. For this reason we are planning to get back on the road this weekend, beginning with our scheduled show in Albuquerque this Thursday, August 18th. The emotions have us yearning to be close to each other immediately. The logistics have us needing to replace all of our instruments and equipment. (The set is a loss that is insignificant in light of the tragedy).
This Incredible Machine is more than a tour and more than a set. We have always celebrated music as a Healer. While music cannot change the events and losses at the Indiana State Fair, it can hopefully serve as a ritual and a balm to provide comfort and facilitate healing in this time of great sorrow. We hope to see you all soon.
