JOKE: Stallone, Schwarzenegger and Van Damme in Casting

A top movie producer was discussing his new project, an action docudrama about famous composers with several top stars. Stallone, Schwarzenegger and Van Damme were present. The producer really desired the box office oomph of these three, so they were prepared to allow them to select that famous composers they would portray.

"Well," started Stallone, "I've always admired Mozart. I would love to play him."

"Chopin has always been my favorite," said Van Damme, "I'll play him."

The producer was pleased. "Sounds splendid. But who do you want to be, Arnold?"

"I'll be Bach."

VIDEO: Plane crash video from inside cockpit

This is unprecedented footage of a small airplane crash from inside the cockpit from two different views. Miraculously, everyone survived. The pilot will make a full recovery and the rest of us escaped with superficial injuries and feel very lucky to be alive . This trip was much anticipated and due to our excitement we had our Gopro cameras filming at various times. After flying up into the mountains for a morning hike in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness we were planning on flying to a small mountain town for dinner. Due to warming temperatures there was an increase in density altitude and we had a hard time getting adequate lift. After taking off we hit an air pocket that made us rapidly loose altitude, pushing us down into the trees. The cameras were left on for a couple of hours during the aftermath. Thank you to all the many individuals who eventually came to our aid and took the time and effort to help in any way they could. We appreciate you more than you know.

VIDEO: Man charged with driving lawn mower while under the influence had drunk 14 beers in 2� miles


James David Gray allegedly said he has "a bad drinking problem." The 68-year-old Florida man, who was arrested on Tuesday and charged with driving a lawn mower while intoxicated, said he has been drinking since he was 16, can't control his habit and needs help. During the last two years, Gray, who receives a disability check, said he had not taken a sip of alcohol. Before that, he said, he used to drink a 12-pack a day.

But on his way home in Citra after cutting grass on Tuesday, Gray said he stopped at a convenience store and purchased an 18-pack of Natural Ice because he was hot and depressed. Gray said he was depressed because the $459 a month from his disability check and the $300 a month he earns from cutting grass is not enough. It was a bad decision. Marion County sheriff's Deputy Rick Palmateer was doing a security check in the Lakes and Meadows subdivision in Citra when he noticed Gray riding the red lawn mower south in the northbound lane.

Stopping the mower, Palmateer found that Gray's eyes were bloodshot and his speech was slurred. The deputy said Gray's breath had a strong smell of alcohol and there was a cold beer open in a cup holder on the lawn mower. Gray said that when the deputy stopped him he had only four beers left. He had ridden about 2� miles from the store, Gray said. He had another half mile to go to his residence, where he lives with his sister. Palmateer reported that Gray failed a field sobriety test.

He was taken to the Marion County Jail, where breath tests showed he had a blood alcohol level of .138 and .147. Those results are well above the .08 level at which one is presumed to be too intoxicated to drive. Gray was charged with DUI. The deputy checked his record and found that Gray had been convicted four times for DUI. With this arrest, Gray violated his felony drug probation, which had begun on July 9, 2011, and was slated to end July 8, 2013. As for the lawn mower, Gray said he handed it over to his sister. He said was it rented and he had just made the first payment of $127 a month.

Dog carried puppies from blazing house and placed them on fire truck


A dog rescued her ten-day-old puppies from a house fire and carried them to safety. The blaze broke out at a home in Santa Rosa de Temuco, Chile, on Thursday after a car bomb went off.

The mother dog - a German Shepherd mix called Amanda - risked her life to pick up the puppies in her mouth and carried them from the burning house to the safety of the fire truck. She ran between the house and truck over and over again until all puppies were safe.


After rescuing all of her pups from the blaze, Amanda sat down next to them, protecting them with her body as the firefighters fought the blaze. Amanda and her puppies were then taken to a vet where one puppy called Amparo, who had suffered severe burns, died. The other four puppies were doing well.


The vet, Felipe Lara, said that Amanda had defended her puppies when they tried to take them away from her to care for them. Eventually she let them check over her pups but she wanted to stay with ailing Amparo and did not want to let her from her sight.
