Just call it the Terminator of parking violations. A 19-year-old Stanford University student says he has created the world’s very first AI lawyer chatbot, and it’s already been producing great results. It has so far won 64 per cent of the 250,000 cases it’s taken on, netting savings of more than $4 million. It works by asking drivers a series of questions and then guides them through the appeals process. So far, it only works in the U.K. and New York, but its creator has plans to expand it. You can check it out yourself right here.
“Is that a pic-a-nic basket, Boo-boo?” An infant named Jackson was celebrating his birthday in Alaska when a male black bear came crashing through the ceiling. As party-goers were quickly cleared out of the room, the bear remained inside and set his eyes on the family’s cupcakes. The animal eventually walked out of the house “casually” after getting his fill. Fortunately, no one was injured.
Consider their innocence gone. According to staff at the Brenden Concord Theatre in California, a manager frantically trying to accommodate last-minute groups wanting to see Finding Dory accidentally started the wrong movie once they were all seated inside. As a result, a trailer for the movie Sausage Party (which is highly expected to receive an R-rating) was screened, and let’s just say all those kids have likely added a few new words to their vocabulary. The theatre has since apologized for the error.

Watch out for those Koopa shells! A video uploaded to Twitter shows a man in a go kart speeding away from a police vehicle with its sirens on. As people cheer the guy on, the driver even waves back to the crowd. It’s unclear whether he was caught, or managed to get away.

At 15 years, they’re probably ready to retire soon anyway. A human resource department in the town of Jerez de la Frontera, Spain, recently reviewed employment records and noticed that two men had not shown up for work for even a single day in all of 2015 or so far in 2016. When they dug a little deeper, they noticed these same men hadn’t actually showed up at all in 15 entire years! The union the men belong to actually defended them, arguing the pair had just taken off their “accumulated days,” which are allowed to be shared with other employees. One of the men has since returned to work.
