DOG OWNERS: Beware Of 'Tennis Ball Bombs' On The 4th Of July

Dog
The 4th of July is already horrible for most dog owners and now we have something else to worry about. Police are warning that people are making homemade bombs in tennis balls. If your dog is anything like mine it will grab any tennis ball it sees, especially if it's moving.

The real danger is people will make the bombs and they won't work. Then they get left on the ground. A dog comes along, picks it up, and it explodes.

Police say if you see anything like this leave it alone and call 911.

VIDEO: Tom Hanks Becomes Sully Sullenberger

Tom Hanks
The untold heroic effort behind the Miracle on the Hudson will be in theaters September 9th and Tom Hanks plays hero pilot Sully Sullenberger.

On January 15, 2009, Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger successfully landed US Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River after it struck a gaggle of geese. The incident was soon after takeoff and the plane lost both engines. The pilot saved 155 people.

People are already talking Oscar but let's just be happy this Tom Hanks plane movie has him being rescued in a matter of minutes. #Castaway

The real Sully is now an aviation safety consultant.
Did you get goose bumps?

Tarzan Is An Ab Lover's Dream

Alexander Skarsgard
The new Tarzan movie is out and I'll be honest, my wife is probably going to watch this one with the sound off.

Tarzan is invited back to the Congo, where a Belgian dude hopes to hand Tarzan to his enemy and hijinks ensue. But everyone is talking about the abs: "It's possible, even likely, that more effort was expended on sculpting Alexander Skarsgard's abs for The Legend of Tarzan than on providing good reason why the movie was made," writes Peter Howell at the Toronto Star.

Gwyneth Paltrow Tries To Explain Why People Hate Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow has an idea about why people don't like her.

In a recent BBC interview, someone asked her about being named the “Most Hated Celebrity” back in 2013. She replied with, “First of all I was like, ‘I’m the most hated celebrity?’ More than, like, Chris Brown? What did I do? There is the perception that I grew up very wealthy but my father said, ‘You are completely on your own. So he never gave me anything. I never had any supplementation, he never helped me with my rent, I never had a trust fund. So the idea that I am spoiled or that I didn’t work for what I have, that’s just not accurate.”

Just to make sure you think 'she's just like me,' she also added, “People tend to think that I eat just seaweed and a bit of air. I have never had a horrible experience with French fries. French fries are my life!”
