Man Fakes Engine Failure in Insane Wedding Proposal Video

This couple can literally say that they’re “flying high” after getting engaged. In a video released by GoPro, a couple gets engaged while flying in a small private plane, but not before the guy piloting it pretends the engine is failing.

Anthony began flying late 2013. In a blog post for GoPro, Anthony says he pursued being a pilot because it had always been a dream of his. And then he knew he wanted to propose to Katherine, his girlfriend of two years, in the sky.

So this past February, Anthony convinced Katherine to come flying with him. Once up in the air, he pretended that the something was wrong with the plane and says they might need to land in the field below. He then asked a understandably anxious Katherine to read through a checklist that he has prepared called “Initiate Ring Engagement Process.”

Spoilers: The final questions on the check list: “Will the pilot in commander love the passenger forever? Check.” and “Will you marry the pilot in command?” and at that, Anthony pulls out a ring. Though Katherine seems thrilled by the proposal (and says yes!), she does call her new fiancé an idiot.

The couple got married on June 17th.

Johnny Depp Publicly Hints at Assassinating Trump

Round and round Johnny Depp‘s downward spiral goes—where it will stop, nobody knows.

At England’s Glastonbury Festival yesterday, Depp was speaking to an audience gathered outside a theater where his 2004 movie, The Libertine, was being screened. Depp first asked the audience, “Can we bring Trump here?” To which the crowd responded with jeers and boos. An audience member followed that up by asking Depp, “Just to give him some love and rehabilitation?” To which Depp replied, “I think he needs help.”

Then Depp shifted gears, floating the question, “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” The crowd responded with cheers. He then said with a smile, “I want to clarify: I’m not an actor … I lie for a living.”

The response to his not-so-subtle hint at political violence was swift and damning. Republican Party chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel called his comments “disgusting” on Twitter.

Watch this Democrat Call Out His Party for Focusing on Trump’s Tweets

South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers to discuss how fellow Democrats should focus less on President Trump’s tweets—and the wall-to-wall media coverage of his administration—and more on helping people in their communities.

“Most of the people who cross my path every day in South Bend, Indiana, they may not know or care who Jim Comey is, but they’re going to know if their healthcare gets taken away. This is literally life and death stuff,” Buttigieg said. Watch the clip for yourself.

Paddleboarder’s Terrifying Close Encounter With Injured Giant Squid

When South African extreme sports aficionado James Taylor discovered  an injured giant squid, he decided the sea creature needed his help.

He soon learned he probably should have thought out his overture better—especially since giant squids can reach 33 feet in length. This seemed less than enthused by Taylor’s presence. In the interaction caught on vidceo, the squid began to wrap its limbs around Taylor’s paddle board, even knocking him off of it in the process.

Taylor wound up intact from the encounter. Unfortunately, the giant squid, which Taylor said was missing some tentacles, later died.

Jimmy Kimmel Gives Silenced Valedictorian Chance to Finish Speech

There are school administrators in Exeter, Pa., who are wishing they would have just let Peter Butera finish talking.

Late night host Jimmy Kimmel brought the senior class president and valedictorian on Live! last night to finish the speech he tried to deliver at his high school graduation last week in Pennsylvania. Butera, who was elected class president for all four years at Wyoming Area Secondary Center and is Villanova-bound, had his microphone cut off in the middle of delivering a blistering message for administrators.

“At our school, the title of class president can more accurately be class party planner,” Butera said in recorded video of the graduation. “Student council’s main obligation is to paint signs every week.”

Butera’s school principal, Jon Pollard, can be seen grimacing next to Butera before mouthing to someone offstage. A few moments later, Butera’s mic is cut. If Pollard had known then what he does now, he probably would have let Butera finish while the speech was still only being recorded by his parents and friends.

The Kimmel video has already climbed to #10 on YouTube’s top trending videos just hours after it was posted.

Watch Daredevil Stuntman Break Record for BASE Jumps in a Day

You might remember Miles Daisher for his daring BASE jump over the “lost city” of Petra.

Well, he’s at it again, but this time a lot more frequently.

On the Summer Solstice (i.e. the longest day of the year) and with Red Bull on hand, Daisher spent an entire day jumping off a bridge, climbing up it again, and doing repeating the same feat until he entered the record books with 63 jumps in 24 hours.

What makes his record all the more incredible is that he was doing what is called an “unassisted BASE jump,” or as Red Bull notes, one where he isn’t given help getting back up to the top of the bridge. He literally had to hike back to the same spot 63 times.

Watch the feat in real-time above.

New ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 Trailer Brings the Ice and Fire

A blast of winter arrived on the summer solstice.

HBO unleashed the second trailer for the seventh season of Game of Thrones on Wednesday, complete with previously unseen footage of Jon Snow (Kit Harington) apparently heading back into the frigid north to battle the undead White Walkers.

“For centuries, our families fought together against their common enemy, despite their differences—together,” Snow says in a voiceover. “We need to do the same if we’re going to survive, because the enemy is real. It’s always been real.”

But there appears to be plenty happening in the more temperate parts of Westeros, too. Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) can be seen arriving at her family’s ancestral home of Dragonstone, while her army gets its spears bloodied in one of the large-scale battles for which the fantasy series is famous.

The penultimate season of the hit series, based on author George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Fire and Ice novels, debuts on July 16.

George Clooney Sells His Tequila Company for $1 Billion

You might not ever see George Clooney on the silver screen again, because the actor never has to work another day in his life.

Fortune is reporting that liquor giant Diageo is acquiring Casamigos, a fast-growing tequila brand that the Academy Award-winner launched in 2013 with partners Rande Gerber (better known as the husband of Cindy Crawford), and Mike Meldman. Diageo, which produces Smirnoff and Don Julio, announced Wednesday that it will initially pay $700 million for the deal, with $300 extra in compensation based on the brand’s 10-year performance.

“Together, we are excited about taking Casamigos to a bigger audience globally,” Deirdre Mahlan, president of Diageo North America, reportedly told Wall Street during in a post-deal presentation.

This is the second major tequila acquisition Diageo has made in the last few years, Fortune notes. In 2014, the company swapped Bushmills Irish whiskey for full control of Don Julio.

NFL Hall of Famer Warren Sapp Says He’s Donating Brain to Science

NFL Hall of Famer Warren Sapp is tackling the league’s concussion issue head on—especially since the perennial all-star is feeling some of the effects of years of collisions.

And that’s why Sapp, in a video recorded for The Players’ Tribune, says he’s going to donate his brain to the Concussion Legacy Foundation.

A Super Bowl champion in 2002, Sapp, who played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders from 1995-2007, was known as a menace to quarterbacks, recording 96.5 sacks throughout his career.

In the video, Sapp admits to memory loss—saying “It’s the most frightening feeling, but it’s also a very weakening feeling, because you feel like a child.” He says he has to now set himself reminders in his phone to remember to do simple things. “And it’s from the banging we did as football players,” says Sapp.

Seth Meyers Slams Democratic Hypocrisy, Spin on Georgia Special Election

Left-leaning late night host Seth Meyers took time out of his show to skewer Democratic spin, hypocrisy, and the way the party continues to unsuccessfully run campaigns.

His sermon aired on a night in which Republican Karen Handel beat out Democrat Jon Ossoff for Congress in the 2017 special election in Georgia’s 6th congressional district.

The show, which was taped before the election results were available, highlighted the fact that Democrats would react to any outcome of the election the exact same way — but with varying levels of spin. Considering how often Meyers has poked fun at the president and the Republican party in recent months, it was a rare salvo aimed at the other side of the aisle.

12-Year-Old Girl Comes Out to Entire Mormon Congregation

One 12-year-old girl in Utah is making headlines after publicly coming out as lesbian to in front of her entire Mormon congregation.

“I had a feeling like I should come out to the church,” Savannah, whose last name has been withheld, told CNN. “I came out to all of my family and I just wanted to do something more.”

The outlet reports that both parents were supportive of Savannah, and “felt strongly” that they didn’t have the right to prevent her from sharing her sexual orientation with anyone.

“We came to the conclusion it wasn’t our place; we couldn’t silence her,” her mother Heather said. “It would be giving her a bigger message that she wasn’t allowed to speak or there was something wrong with her.”

Her father, Josh, said that when it came to coming out at church, he was “mostly nervous for her and where this would take her as a 12-year-old girl,” but noted that he felt it was Savannah’s decision to make.

“We let her make that decision, not us,” Josh told CNN. “I had nothing to do with … coercing her or anything.”

A 2015 Mormon church policy considers members in same-sex marriages as apostates whose children can’t be baptized or join the church unless they disavow same-sex partnerships, CNN reports. Savannah wanted to be a “positive” voice for people in the church.

“I want them to know that I’m an ally. That they’re safe with me. I want them to know that it’s OK to be Mormon and be gay,” Heather recalled Savannah saying.

Just how it was received in the church remains a mystery: Recorded video of Savannah’s speech shows her mic being suddenly cut off.

CNN reports it’s “unclear” exactly what happened, and repeated requests to the church, the bishops, and headquarters, they did not explain why Savannah’s mic ceased to work.

Watch Former Special Forces Operative Make Dramatic Rescue in Iraq

Talk about a real American hero. David Eubank, a 56-year-old former Special Forces operative turned aid worker, found himself in Mosul, Iraq, in the middle of heavy sniper fire with little by way of cover. And 150 yards away from him, in a pile of dead civilians mowed down by the snipers, he saw a toddler, young girl, and wounded man.

So he decided to act.

As the Los Angeles Times explains, Eubank, is a member of the Free Burma Rangers (FBR) an aid group that provides medical assistance, shelter, food, clothing, and educational materials in war-torn areas such as Burma, Sudan, and Iraq. Over the last few years, though, FBR has focused its relief efforts on regions affected by the Islamic State.

After Iraqi and U.S.-led coalition forces dropped smoke canisters in the area, Eubank and a small team, under heavy fire, crept to within yards of where the three survivors were trapped. Then, with two members of his team providing cover fire, Eubank ran into harm’s way and grabbed the little girl.

She was the only one of the three he was able to save—and surprisingly, the entire, seconds-long rescue mission was caught on camera.
