If you want to make Friday seem special again, you're going to have to quit drinking during the week.

Look, we've all probably wanted to attack a bus driver at some point in our lives. (Or, you know, a Will Call window person.) But that doesn't mean you do it. Don't be this asshole.

Allegiant Airlines, a small start-up flying high on a stellar reputation and not at all known for having to turn planes around seven minutes after takeoff, is back in the news for having to cancel flights — ironically, it's because the better planes they ordered haven't arrived yet. Growing pains, broken eggs, and all that.

You can add a beloved childhood favorite to the list of foods that have joined their mammalian friends in actively trying to kill humans: Honey Smacks have been recalled over salmonella fears. We can't have nice things.

And finally, six people were injured and many more were left dangling when the 40-year-old Sand Blaster roller coaster on the Daytona Beach boardwalk derailed. Probably not what they meant when they decided to go hang out by the pier.
