A Texas woman marked the end of her 14-year marriage by blowing up her wedding dress in an explosion felt 15 miles away. One day after Kimberly Santleben-Stiteler, 43, got divorced, she held a party for 40 guests on her father’s farm. She rigged her gown with 20 pounds of the explosive Tannerite and then fired one shot from a scoped rifle at a range of 200 yards, triggering a massive explosion that Santleben-Stiteler said looked like a special effect from an action movie. “It was liberating pulling that trigger,” she said. “It was closure for all of us.”
A Mississippi man intentionally rammed his pickup truck into a local courthouse because he wanted to alert police that someone had stolen his drug paraphernalia. Surveillance video shows Keith Cavalier, 28, climbing through the passenger-side window after the predawn crash, calmly surveying the damage, and strolling away. He was soon apprehended and charged with DUI and felony malicious mischief.
Iceland’s president has admitted he abused the powers of his office by threatening to ban the use of pineapple as a pizza topping. President Gudni Johannesson sparked international outrage last year when he expressed his strong opposition to so-called Hawaiian pizzas, saying the pineapple topping gets all mushy and should be banned. His comments were denounced by Hawaiian pizza lovers everywhere, particularly in Canada, where pineapple as a topping was pioneered. Johannesson now says he was wrong and that it’s a matter of individual freedom. “The influence of this office sort of, yeah, got the better of me,” he said. “I went a step too far.” ■
