A Woman Tried to Board a Plane with her Emotional Support Peacock.

One of the worst parts about flying is that you’re trapped in a metal tube at 30,000 feet with people stupid enough to think they can bring their peacock on board:

K-9s, felines .?.?. and peacocks.

Airlines that have begun talking about tightening restrictions on a proliferating array of “emotional support” animals on commercial flights may have found their case bolstered this week after a picture of a peacock that was reportedly denied a seat aboard a United Airlines flight traveled far and wide.

The Jet Set, a travel-focused television show based in Washington, posted the photo on Facebook of the resplendent blue-and-green bird, saying that the “emotional support peacock” had been denied boarding on a flight at Newark International Airport.

United Airlines confirmed that the exotic animal was barred from the plane Saturday because it “did not meet guidelines for a number of reasons, including its weight and size.”

Fact-checking website crashes during Trump’s first State of the Union

The fact-checking website crashing while checking Trump is the perfect metaphor for this Administration:

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address proved too much for non-partisan fact-checking site PolitiFact Tuesday night. The website saw its servers crash for six minutes during the President’s speech.

“Welp … our website just crashed. Thanks for reading ?!!? We’ll keep things up here on Twitter while we see what happened,” the website tweeted, citing high web traffic numbers.
