I'm no master criminal, but once you've successfully robbed a store you need to get the hell out of there.
Last week, 21-year-old Akensvil Paulvil and 19-year-old Licence Sineas were able to shoplift an entire cart of electronics from a Walmart in
But then they got greedy . . . and went back inside to steal some MORE. Apparently they figured that it would be that easy the second time.
But by that point Walmart security had realized what happened, and called the cops. So as the guys tried to leave with their second round of stolen electronics, the cops were waiting for them at the exit.
Both men were arrested for grand theft.
The "American Country Awards" went down last night, and even though it was their fourth year, the show still hasn't found its legs. Or host.

A never-before released JOHNNY
It features two duets with his wife, JUNE CARTER
And this isn't a bunch of sessions slapped-together to make a buck . . . it's a completed album that his record company decided not to release. Fortunately, Johnny saved the tapes and his son John Carter Cash found them just last year.
An interesting side note is that it also featured a young MARTY STUART on guitar.
The new producers decided to "fortify" the original tapes so they brought Marty back, plus some studio musicians and June's daughter CARLENE CARTER.
No other changes were made to the record, so it's like we're getting a brand new Johnny Cash album 10 years after his death.
The news is not good for
There's a difference between a bad Christmas gift and a WEIRD Christmas gift. A bad Christmas gift is, like, a shirt that's four sizes too big. A weird Christmas gift is, well . . . like these.
Here’s five of the most MESSED UP and EMBARRASSING Christmas gifts people have actually received, in their own words . . .
1. "I mentioned to my uncle one year I wished I could grow a beard like his. Come Christmas, he hands me a present. I unwrap it and . . . it's his beard in a Ziploc bag."
2. "My uncle gave me a giant block of cement, a mini hammer, and a chisel. He'd hidden things inside the block and I had to chisel them out. It turned out to be a few coins and what appeared to be an arrowhead."
3. "My aunt gave me a bag of shredded cheese."
4. "I got a gift card to a lingerie store from my grandma."
5. "I got a pair of pink panties from my grandpa. I'm a guy." (Reddit)
If you feel like your Sweet Thang sometimes tunes you out . . . well, congratulations on being like EVERYONE else. And . . . it's TRUE.
According to a new study out of
For the study, the researchers picked stereotypically "male" words like "beer" and "football" . . . and stereotypically "female" words like "chocolate" and "shopping."
Then they had men and women listen to a conversation, and report on what they heard.
Men were more likely to remember the parts that featured the male words and forget the other parts . . . women were more likely to remember the parts with female words and forget the rest.
So, if ya’ll want your husband to do the dishes, you have to say . . . "Beer, football, rock climbing, biceps, big red truck, please do the dishes, okay? Beer.” (Daily Mail)

For 35 years, a 53-year-old guy named Michael Goodman has been telling a story about how he tried to MUG a guy in
According to Michael, he was trying to impress a friend by walking up to a stranger and stealing his bus pass, and he's always felt terrible about it. He ended up getting three weeks of community service.
Well, his victim was a guy named Claude Soffel, and Michael never forgot his name. Then last month, Michael was reading a random post on Facebook . . . and saw a "Claude Soffel" in the comments section.
So he assumed it was the same guy, and posted a lengthy apology, explaining that he's always felt guilty about it and hoped Claude would forgive him. And it turned out it WAS the same guy.
A few hours later, Claude responded to Michael's message and ACCEPTED his apology, saying quote, "Clearly [you're] a bigger man today." (NY Post)

The service will be called Amazon Prime Air. And the drones are so fast that you'll have the product delivered to your home approximately HALF AN HOUR after you order it. Welcome to the amazing, slightly frightening future. (Mashable / "60 Minutes")
