Imagine opening a door to see a giant mutant spider coming right for you.

Prankster Sylwester Wardega dresses his dog in a spider costume and then unleashes him on unsuspecting people.

Chica the DogSpider chases strangers in the horrifying getup, which is hilarious to watch.

One part of the video posted on YouTube shows Wardega laying “lifeless” in an elevator with Chica standing over him.

Possibly the most memorable part of the video is when a man stumbles upon giant “spider webs” that appear to show human body parts entangled within them.

The video posted on September 4th has over one million views on YouTube.

Fred Civis claims he was fired from grocery store for giving a hug.

But the alleged victim felt differently, leading to Civis’ termination and criminal charges.

A Facebook page called “Boycott Whitehall Plumb’s for Fred” started this week as members of the community rallied together Wednesday in support of Civis, holding signs and chanting “We want Fred!”

ELIZABETH, Colo. — A Colorado woman says she was looking down to check a text message before sending it when she was involved in a horrific accident, KUSA reports.

Christina Jahnz hit a guardrail pole that went through her truck, piercing her thigh and buttocks.

Firefighters had to saw off the front and back ends of the pole in order to get Jahnz out of the vehicle.

Jahnz told KUSA, “I was running late for a business meeting, so I did a voice text. I looked down to make sure it was all right. The next thing I knew, I was looking up. There was white powder from the air bags deployed.”

Jahnz said doctors told her if the pole had gone just a little bit one way or the other she could have bled out.

“I’m truly a miracle,” she said.

She is…

PLEASANT GROVE, Utah — A mother in Pleasant Grove is furious with staff at the city’s junior high school after she said they fed her daughter lunch out of a trash can.

Sierra Prince is a special needs student in the 8th grade at Pleasant Grove Junior High School. While Wednesday was only her second day at school, she already isn’t looking forward to her third day.

“I don’t even know if I want to go to school tomorrow at all,” Prince said.

According to Prince, when she asked for a piece of pizza for lunch on Wednesday afternoon, she was told there was none left. However, after insisting she wanted pizza, a second kitchen employee pulled out what was left from the top of a trash can.

“I didn’t really like the taste of it at all,” Prince said. “It was nasty.”

BILOXI, Miss. — A heroic truck driver ran toward a flaming car, pulling an injured woman and her 1-year-old granddaughter to safety after a violent collision.

David Fredericksen had his dash cam rolling on Aug. 11 along Interstate 10 in Biloxi, Miss. when a violent collision occurred right in front of him, auto blog Jalopnik reported.

Fredericksen exited his vehicle and, with a fire extinguisher in hand, doused the burning car and pulled the woman and her granddaughter to safety.

Both the woman and the baby reportedly survived, though the grandmother suffered a broken leg and other injuries, according to a caption accompanying the video on YouTube.

No one involved in the crash was identified.

The video’s timestamp reads “1/28/2013″ but the caption accompanying the video clarifies that it is wrong at that the incident happened Aug. 11.

On Thursday, former congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) appeared on MSNBC to talk about his attempts to derail the 1033 program which arms local police departments with military grade weapons, and the situation in Ferguson, Missouri.

“To militarize them and give them military weapons…it creates a culture… guns, and tanks and gasses…it’s an an attitude that encourages the police to overreact,” Paul told host Andrea Mitchell, while noting that he tried to stop the program’s implementation during the 1990s.

In June, Congress voted on halting the program that arms members of local police departments, an amendment that was ultimately shot down with whopping support from both Republicans and Democrats.

As violence between protesters and local authorities continues, Paul believes that police departments have forgotten that the Founding Fathers never intended for a nationalized police force, and that local police are supposed to represent the community they patrol.
