Six-Year-Old Steals Family Van to Buy Food, Crashes [VIDEO]

A 6-year-old boy in Oregon confessed that the reason he stole his family's van and a roll of pennies was because he was hungry and wanted to pick up some grub.

Unfortunately for the boy, no food was had.

Instead, the inexperienced, obviously unlicensed driver crashed into a pickup truck while en route. He also hit several mailboxes along the way.

Geoffrey Mutai Runs Fastest Marathon Ever

Kenyan Geoffrey Mutai won the Boston Marathon on Monday, finishing in 2 hours, 3 minutes, 2 seconds, the fastest 26.2 miles in history.

But, alas, there's a catch: Even though Mutai beat the previous record by 57 seconds, because there was a strong tailwind on a downhill course, Mutai's time won't be recognized. In fact, 2011 Boston Marathon runner-up and fellow-Kenyan Moses Mosop also surpassed the world record, finishing only four seconds behind Mutai.

Dinosaur Scares Australian School Children [VIDEO]

One of the first things a youngster learns about dinosaurs is that they have long been extinct. On a certain level, these Australian school children have internalized that lesson. However, when the life-like prehistoric beast starts to roar in this video (after the jump), some of them no longer seem so sure.

In defense of the scaredy cats, that's a pretty impressive movie-quality dinosaur suit they are being confronted with.

Banned, Well-Endowed Statue to be Re-Erected in France

Now, more than 30 years later, the well-endowed sculpture is being, uh, re-erected smack dab in the middle of the Place Massena in Nice, France.

Boxer Throws Punches at Referee [VIDEO]

Referee Manfred Küchle stopped a WBO super-middleweight title fight between Robert Stieglitz and Khoren Gevor in 10th round after he ruled that Gevor had intentionally head-butted Stieglitz, opening a gash above his right eye.

Gevor was disqualified for his illegal move, which didn't sit well the Armenian-German, who tracked Küchler down in the corner of the ring after the match was declared and began throwing punches at the referee.

As you can see from the the video below, this excites the crowd. Although we'd like to think they're cheering because the security guards were so quick to pounce on Gevor, not because he was wailing on the ref.
