One man’s day at the beach turned deadly after he was killed by a shark while wading into the surf to relieve himself. The victim, Marcelo Rocha Santos, 51, had reportedly been drinking with friends when nature called. He and a fellow reveler decided to head into the sea to urinate around 2 p.m., when the surf had turned tumultuous and murky, making it difficult to spot anything in the water. The two men waded into the water up to their waists. That’s when the shark struck — biting off the unfortunate beach-goer’s hand and taking off a chunk of his leg. The lifeguard was unable to stop the attack. However, shortly thereafter, Santo’s buddies managed to drag him back to shore, where he collapsed on the beach unconscious while horrified bystanders looked on. One beach-goer even captured footage of the victim as he lay motionless on the sand. Santos was immediately rushed to a hospital in Recife, where he was pronounced dead. Meanwhile, his buddy da Silva, who was the only other person in the water at the time, escaped the incident unscathed. It’s unknown what kind of shark bit Santos — it is thought to be either a bull or tiger shark. However, the incident took place near an area where there had been 12 prior attacks.(https://bit.ly/3wOeBCg)

The first Star Wars was expected to be a flop. The original 1977 Star Wars had a budget of $8 million, which distributor 20th Century Fox was reluctant to give to director/writer George Lucas, so he accepted a lower salary in order to keep the budget. The movie went on to make $775 million around the world, and Disney picked up the entire franchise for $4 billion. For comparison, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which was released in 2017, had a reported budget of $317 million.

A Utah-based gun manufacturer is taking heat for its customized kit that encases a Glock handgun in Lego bricks – putting a weapon that looks like a toy in the hands of owners for just a few hundred bucks. Culper Precision in Provo said in late June it wanted the Second Amendment to “simply be too painful to tread on.” “Here’s one of those childhood dreams coming to life, the Block19 prototype, yes you can actually build Legos onto it,” the company announced on its Instagram page. “We superglued it all together and surprisingly it survived a little over 1,500 rounds in full auto at Shootah this past weekend.” The colorful customization option started at $549 and went up to $765 depending on the design, according to the Firearm Blog. “The idea is that customers who have a Gen 3 or 4 Glock 19 with a black polymer frame and have already purchased an aftermarket blank slide … can send that in and we will return a Block19 to them for around $600,” the company’s president, Brandon Scott, told the website. But blowback to the design, both from Lego and the public, was swift, with some commenters calling the modification the “most irresponsible” they’ve seen in some time. The kit was no longer available on the company’s website Wednesday after Lego sent Culper Precision a cease-and-desist letter regarding the custom design. (https://bit.ly/3wEPuSb)
MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by BetterResultsAdvertising.com
A 74-year-old man shut down the Fort Lauderdale Airport on Saturday when he told an Air Canada Agent he had a bomb in his bag after learning that he would have to pay for his carry-on item. Wegal Rosen was arrested and released on a $20,000 bond in order to see his cardiologist in Toronto but faces up to 15 years in prison. The bomb threat set off an hours-long shut down of Fort Lauderdale Airport Saturday morning. Three terminals were closed, with many flights canceled or delayed. Police reports state that at 8.30 a.m. Rosen, of Ontario, walked away from the ticket counter where he had been arguing with the Air Canada agent about paying for his carry-on baggage. As he was walking from Terminal 2 to Terminal 3 to purchase a Visa card to make the payment, the agent called out that he left his carry-on bag there and he needed to come and get it. Rosen told the agent there was a bomb in the bag causing deputies to search the airport for hours to check that the area was clear. The bag actually contained Rosen’s CPAP machine. The elderly man was arrested and taken to jail. (https://bit.ly/3B4Jp51)
