Home Owner Pulls Up Floor And Discovers Life Size Monopoly Board Underneath

Who wants to be a millionaire?!

I don't, I want to be a Monopoly player. That's probably the best thing ever. Well if I was this home owner I think I would probably be mind blown.

What this home owner found under his carpet was a giant life sized board game painted on his floor. And you guessed it, it was Monopoly.

A house would be boring without board games. Play them, and store them back where they came from. Well not this one. This man was removing his carpet and he discovered one that can't be packed away.

There's even a "Jail" corner just like how the original Monopoly would look.

Dell Insists That Latitude Model 6420U Doesn't Smell Like Cat Pee

Dell has responded to complaints from users regarding a weird smell coming from a specific model of notebooks it manufactures. Engadget points to the Dell Support forums where numerous users have posted about their Latitude 6430u notebook smelling like cat pee. One post claimed his laptop smelled like it had been assembled near a tomcat's litter box, while another wrote that they thought that one of their cats had sprayed the laptop. Folks were complaining that it was embarrassing to have their computer out at work, in front of clients, at class, and the smell was lingering on hands and fingers. Gross.

Reports said the smell was emanating from the keyboard of the computer, and though Dell initially advised customers clean keyboard and fans with compressed air, the company has since said the smell originates from the palm rest. So, of course, compressed air didn't do much to fix the smell, which several users described as a 'stench' and said it was so bad, they couldn't use their laptop. Dell updated the thread at the end of August to say "biological contamination was not suspected" and updated again earlier this month to say it definitely wasn't pee. Of any kind.

Allegiant Airlines Delays Flight As Long As It Would Take Most Passengers To Drive To Destination

An Allegiant Air flight took off more than 11 hours behind schedule Monday night for an hour-and-a-half trip -- with many steaming passengers on board.

Flight 1032 was supposed to take off from Oakland International Airport for Provo, Utah at 9:30 a.m. local time, airport spokesperson Brian Kidd tells CBS News.

But it had to be towed back to the terminal due to a nose gear steering issue, and all passengers had to head back into the terminal.

Allegiant flew in a replacement craft that was slated to leave at 4 p.m. but it, too, had a mechanical problem.

So Allegiant flew in a third plane, which got to the airport at 6:40 p.m., Kidd says

Dumb Criminals: Convicted Identity Theif Ate Debit Card To Hide Evidence

An identity thief from Dallas has been convicted of collecting millions of dollars in fraudulent income tax refunds.

Ogiesoba City Osula, 37, was arrested in 2011 after police in a Cincinnati suburb caught him with $300,000 in cash and money orders, as well as numerous debit cards, one of which he ate to conceal evidence, according to the U.S. attorney’s office.

Osula was convicted of 16 counts Friday after a nearly weeklong trial and will be sentenced at a later date.

Four accomplices have pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges in the fraud scheme and will also be sentenced later: George Ojonugwa, 32, of Garland; Eseos Igiebor, 43, of Richardson; Ebenezer Legbedion, 42, of Lagos, Nigeria, and Evelyn Nyaboke Haley, 34, of Dallas.

Hampshire College Cancels Performance From Band "Afrobeat" For Being "Too White"

AMHERST - Shokazoba's cancellation from the Hampshire Halloween event Friday night at Hampshire College, after one band member said they were criticized of being "too white" to play Afrobeat music, is reverberating on social media.

Shokazoba keyboard player Jason Moses said on Saturday that the entire incident has upset the band, which he said was the target of an online campaign by approximately 30 people - a campaign that led to the band's ultimate cancellation from the annual event.

Moses said the firestorm started when someone posted an inflammatory comment online about Hampshire College hiring an all-white band to play Afrobeat music for the event. He said the band is not all white, and race should not be an issue anyway.

"It's not important to us. Music and art has the opportunity to transcend all that," Moses.

The decision to cancel the band was made by the Hype Committee, which puts on Hampshire Halloween.

The Manufacturer Of Sriracha Hot Sauce Is Being Sued For Odors Coming From Factory

It’s well known that a spoonful of Sriracha, an Asian hot sauce made by Huy Fong Foods, can burn your mouth.

But in Irwindale, where the hot sauce’s production facilities are, residents are complaining of burning eyes, irritated throats and headaches caused by a powerful, painful odor that the city says appears to be emanating from the factory during production. The smell is so aggressive that one family was forced to move a birthday party indoors after the spicy odor descended on the festivities, said Irwindale City Atty. Fred Galante.

The city of Irwindale filed suit in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Monday, claiming that the odor was a public nuisance and asking a judge to stop production until the smell can be reduced. “Given how long it’s going on, we had no choice but to institute this action,” Galante said.

Irwindale officals repeatedly met with representatives from Huy Fong Foods to discuss methods of reducing the odors, according to the suit. Huy Fong representatives cooperated at first but later denied there was an odor problem, saying their employees worked in similar olfactory settings without complaint, Galante said.

Stephen Colbert Completely Annhiliated The Dallas Safari Club Last Night

In case you missed it:

Ever wake up feeling in tune with your inner Teddy Roosevelt or Ernest Hemingway and think, "I really need to shoot something rare, something exotic, preferably endangered and it's gotta be huge"?

Lucky for you, the Dallas Safari Club has you covered. The group, which bills itself as a "gathering point for hunters, conservationists and wildlife enthusiasts," has secured the right to hunt one of Namibia's 1,800 remaining black rhinos. According to the Dallas Observer, which first reported the hunt, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service also approved the event.

The club's claims of aiding conservation may not be as laughable as they appear on first blush. Ben Carter, director of the Dallas Safari Club, told the Observer that the permit is expected to bring in as much as $750,000, all of which will be going back to the Conservation Trust Fund for Namibia's Black Rhino.

Carter has, as one might expect, received a lot of criticism. "People are talking about 'Why don't you do a photo safari?' or whatever. Well, that's great, but people don't pay for that," he told the Observer.

Metallica Will Be First Band To Play Concert In Antarctica

Metallica are heading south for the winter. "After 30 years as a band, we have been unbelievably fortunate to visit just about every corner of the earth. . . except for one," the band said today on their website. "That is all about to change as we are set to travel to Antarctica, the only continent that Metallica has never played on until now."

The metal group announced that on December 8th, they will play near the heliport of the continent's Carlini Argentine Base. The audience will consist of fans from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica and Mexico who enter a contest through Coca-Cola Zero. Winners will receive a round-trip ticket on an Antarctic cruise that will leave from Tierra del Fuego, the southernmost tip of South America, on December 3rd.
