Ever hear the term blind rage? It’s phrase for the phenomenon that occurs when otherwise rational people become completely irrational due to something that upsets them. For example, finding your husband with pictures of a much younger woman on his phone is the type of instance that might send one into a blind rage. A guy in Mexico took some old photographs of his wife from their younger days, scanned them, and then saved them to his phone so he would have them to look at any time. But his wife, not recognizing herself, thought it was a younger woman he was having an affair with and stabbed him multiple times. The husband was able to wrestle the knife away from her and explain that it was her in the pictures, but not before neighbors heard the fight and called the police.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A woman in Arizona caught speeding told officers she didn't pull over for them because she "felt like it was the right thing to do," the Mesa Police Department said. In a release from the agency, officers say Hannah Clevenger was speeding, weaving in and out of traffic, and taking up two lanes at once with her car. One officer says after he got behind her car and turned on his car's lights, she looked at him through her driver's side mirror but didn't pull over. The officer then turned on his patrol car's siren along with his lights “to further grab Hannah's attention.” Still, Clevenger didn't pull over. Eventually, the cars reached a red light and the officer says he got out of his car to talk to Clevenger, who “stared at him without saying a word.” And, when the light turned green, she reportedly kept on driving. The next day, officers found and arrested Clevenger, charging her with unlawful flight from law enforcement. Officers say when she was arrested Clevenger told them she remembered the officer but didn't pull over for him “because I felt like it was the right thing to do.” (
