FAIL!: A Woman Lit Her Hair on Fire Trying to Lean in For a Selfie
Because vertical videos look bad when you watch them on YouTube, with those giant black boxes on the sides...Well, here's the best possible public service announcement against vertical videos...shoot horizontal videos, or you might wind up setting someone on FIRE.

And when one of the girls leans in to get into the narrow frame...she accidentally leans into a candle and sets her hair on fire. FAIL!

FAIL!: Dumbass Tattoo
A fried chicken place in England called Nando's is so good, that a 19 yr old was compelled to attempt to get free food for life - They offer special people a 'black card' which gets them free food for life. So this young man got Nando's logo tattooed on his ass. When he went to the restaurant to show off his new ink - they said "Thanks, but no thanks" - No Black Card For You! FAIL! Now he says he'll get a tattoo of the Black Card on his other cheek - if THAT doesn't work, he'll have the Nando's logo lasered off, only to replace it with a KFC logo. He says KFC is better anyway.
