Let’s hit rewind on this week for a moment, shall we? Glee fans said farewell to their beloved Finn Hudson in a touching tribute to Cory Monteith. Miley Cyrus continued her dominance over media with a little help from Jimmy Fallon. The Jenners announced their year-long separation. Then, Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel called a truce on live TV. CRAY to the ZEE — and that’s just from the mainstream!

Gulf States To Gays: No Thanks
In a major setback for the globalization of human and civil rights, Kuwait announced its plans to develop a “medical test” to “detect” homosexuality. The goal is to stop members of the LGBT community from entering the Gulf Cooperation Countries, which also includes Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Anyone the testing deems a homosexual would immediately be sent out of the country. That’s a hefty punishment, but nothing compared to jail time or the death penalty, which Kuwait and Saudi Arabia enforce respectively. FYI: being gay is still considered against the law in over 75 countries.
You’re Ruining Everyone’s Commute
If you’ve ever commuted by train, chances are you’ve witnessed a fellow passenger holding the doors to help a friend catch it too. Even when it’s only a matter of seconds, this act causes a domino effect that slows the entire system down for millions of others. Not to mention, those sliding doors can cause physical harm. Well, someone finally snapped and did what most of us only visualize but would never actually do – he kicked the human door stop out of the way. Clearly her friend didn’t share the same sense of urgency because in 15 seconds of video footage, she’s nowhere to be found:
Ex-Girlfriend Gets Handsy During Ballsy Break Up Move
Let this be a lesson to always gird your loins when danger approaches. A man in South Carolina is nursing his black-and-blue balls back to health after his ex-girlfriend allegedly played a round of grab, twist, pull with his junk. According to reports, Jennifer Singletary appeared to be intoxicated when she arrived to pick-up her belongings from Sonny Dolquist. He says she forced her way into the home after he refused to grant her entrance. The situation quickly escalated as Singletary “squeezed his testicles to the point they were bleeding.” OUCH!
Not Quite Lost, But Safely Found
A child wandering off with a stranger is one of many nightmares that keep parents up at night. Fortunately for a family in the United Kingdom, this dreaded event had a happier ending than most and occurred without anyone even realizing it. A little girl in Kent spent some quality time with her grandfather after he picked her up from school for a trip to the pediatrician. What should have been a great day for the two wasn’t because the girl wasn’t his granddaughter. Turns out the girl and the granddaughter are in the same class, and the school released the wrong one. What’s more is that the parents only discovered the mishap when the girl showed them medicine the doctor prescribed. Yes, this means the grandfather, the school, and the girl’s doctor all failed to crack this case of mistaken identity. At least both children are safe — and that other girl got some medicine she potentially needed!
