  • Here's a glimpse into midtown Manhattan, the concrete jungle where dreams are made. There is nothing you can't do, even if you probably shouldn't be doing it.

    Chances are, if you are a professional package deliverer, you probably shouldn't be tossing cargo into the back of your truck as if you're quickly separating laundry. This FedEx worker, caught on tape by YouTube user banstaman and popularized on Gothamist, isn't winning an award for her handling skills anytime soon. She definitely knows how to throw a box or 10 at once, though.

    The video was filmed on East 44th Street in New York this past Wednesday. It shows the FedEx worker loading boxes into the back of her truck, presumably to be delivered. Maybe she is trying to reduce her time spent on the street. Maybe she hates her job and is just trying to have a little fun, even if it's at the expense of your mom's framed photo. Maybe, despite FedEx's statement about its disappointment in the video, this is a more common practice among

  • The feeling of losing a loved one is indescribable. Charles Lutzow of Rockford, Ill., went through it 45 years ago. His estranged wife, Stella, told him that the child they conceived together died during birth.

    On Tuesday, Lutzow felt another indescribable feeling: reuniting with a daughter he thought was deceased. Keri Abercrombie did not die at birth; rather, her mother put her up for adoption and kept it a secret from Lutzow.

    WIFR, a TV station in Rockford, captured the reunion on camera. It was the culmination of Abercrombie's curiosity: The Alabama resident found her brother using the Adoption Registry and Facebook.

    Lutzow didn't think he'd ever see his daughter—Stella never revealed what actually happened before passing away in 2003.

    "We've been apart 45 years, now back together," the father told the CBS affiliate. "It's a godsend."

    Abercrombie grew up in Utah before moving to Alabama. She traveled on a bus up to Illinois, where she met her father and extended family for the

  • Woman Has Epic Freakout in Apple Store

    Failing athletes, unsuspecting news anchors, disgraced politicians -- all seem to be susceptible to highly publicized meltdowns. But thanks to the ease of mobile video recording, regular joes can now share the spotlight with public figures.

    Or at least these two women can.

    First up is a woman who walks in to the Apple Store at the Grove, in Los Angeles. You might think the lady flipping out on camera is a celebrity and the person filming isn't a public figure. It's the opposite; actress Porscha Coleman caught this person screaming at the top of her lungs because ... I mean, unless this Apple Store employee harmed her or a loved one, does it matter?

    Coleman is clearly on Team Apple for this particular situation, saying the woman, in the description of her Vine post, should "cool it." According to the actress, the lady did not have an appointment with the store. Of course, AppleCare told her she could walk into the store and get what she needed ... but if you're like me, you've watched

  • If I could borrow an overused phrase from departed “American Idol” judge Randy Jackson, “She could sing the phonebook!” Hopefully Florence Welch will not be releasing any of those tracks soon, but perhaps this can hold us over until we hear new music from her “+ the Machine” outfit.

    Welch was in South London watching her friends in the band Sourberry perform when she decided to hop on stage, grab the microphone and a tequila shot, and cover Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.” She didn’t stop there, continuing on to The Gossip’s “Standing In The Way of Control.”

    The songstress is no stranger to covering other tracks, although she usually doesn’t crash a party in the process. She swung by Billboard a few years ago and brought Mario Winans “I Don’t Wanna Know” back to life. Back in 2011, she covered Drake’s “Take Care” for BBC. Last month, Welch put her spin on Icona Pop’s “I Love It” for a Human Rights Campaign benefit.

    Fans of Florence + the Machine heard new music from the group in April, when the

  • We're a day early, but I'd rather see stories like this on "Throwback Thursday" than what normally pops up on my Twitter timeline the day before Friday. Hal Lasko is 97 years young, legally blind and deaf, and he creates his art using Paint on Microsoft Windows 95.

    The man affectionately known as "Grandpa" was one of eight children in his family; his parents came to the U.S. from Austria. Lasko's birthplace is Toledo, Ohio, and his first job after serving in World War II was in Cleveland as a graphic designer with companies like General Tire and the Cleveland Browns.

    He retired in the '70s and began working more on the type of creative art he was most interested in. In the '90s, Lasko's grandson Ryan turned him on to Windows 95 after buying him a new computer 15 years ago. He would later lose some of his vision, but his mastery of the simple software program MS Paint afforded him the opportunity to continue pursuing his passion.

    While Lasko has painted digitally for quite some time,
