While we’re on the subject of burgers, a UK restaurant owner has come up with a two-and-a-half-feet tall burger. Dubbed the "999 burger," its basically 10 burger patties piled on top of each other to form a 30,000-calorie monstrosity. We can feel our arteries clogging up just by looking at it.

Murphy’s Law comes out in full force during big events: Something’s always bound to go wrong, whether its running out of appetizers or having to chase down a tantrum-throwing kid. But no matter how bad your party may be, we’re sure it’ll never be as catastrophic as this poor teen’s Sweet 16 bash, which had a literal party pooper.
"We just got done with cake thank God! We took the cake back in, because within two minutes, something fell from the sky. It was brown. It was everywhere. It got on everything," said one of the guests of the smelly mess that fell from a plane. Those Aussie spiders suddenly sound lovely, eh?

Being pretty has its perks, but it won’t stop BGC security guards from scolding you from taking a photo at an ATM. Just ask Isabelle Daza, who was reprimanded by a sekyu when she took a selfie with an ATM of a bank she endorses. Whoops!

The Killers’ frontman Brandon Flowers has a weird habit: He collects his beard trimmings. "I have a Ziploc bag full of hair. I'll grow five or six days' growth, make sure that the sink is dry, use an electric razor, catch it in the sink, and then I'm able to just scoop it into the bag!" File this under "things only rock stars can get away with."
