Girls Gets A Hammer Stuck In Her Mouth
Teenagers do crazy, and stupid, things. Kaley, a 14-year-old from Louisiana, was talking to a friend about how much she loves one of her favorite K-pop groups, BTS, when she did her crazy and stupid thing. "I was sending her pictures of one of them, [and] he’s good-looking," she says. "So I sent it and said, ‘He’s so beautiful I could shove a hammer in my mouth.’"
The friend she was talking to called her bluff, so Kaley grabbed a hammer and, well, shoved it in her mouth. The problem? It got stuck. Naturally, the 14-year-old took a picture of her predicament and posted it on Twitter asking for help on how to tell her mom.
After 10-minutes of finagling, Kaley was able to get the hammer out. As for her mom, she says she's "hiding the toolbox."

Not Getting Enough Sleep Could Be Making You Fat
We’ve been told time and time again that not getting enough sleep isn’t good for our health, but according to a new study, it isn’t good for our waistline, either. New research from the University of Leeds finds that folks who get less than seven hours a sleep each night are at a higher risk of being obese, which will also bring on other health issues.
The study followed over 1,600 students, asking them to report their sleep and eating patterns, while also getting their weight, waist circumference and blood pressure levels checked. What they found was that the waist measurements of those who slept only six hours on average was three centimeters more than those who got nine hours of shut-eye a night.
And it’s not necessarily because those who aren’t sleeping are eating badly. The study found no link between less sleep and a poor diet.

Some Of Your 90s Favorites Are Back
If you’re feeling nostalgic for some of your favorite snacks from back in the 90s, we’re happy to tell you some of those beloved treats are making a comeback. Here are a few classic products you’ll be able to find on shelves at a supermarket near you.
Oreo O’s - When the announcement hit that Oreo O’s were coming back, the Internet was buzzing with excitement. This cookie-inspired cereal was first introduced back in 1998 and stuck around until 2007, so it took 10 whole years for it to make a comeback. You can only find a box at your local Walmart through September but they’ll be at grocery stores nationwide after that.
Crystal Pepsi - Way back in 1992, Crystal Pepsi hit stores, but the clear, caffeine-free soda was only around for a year before it was discontinued. Since then, it’s been available through sweepstakes and limited-edition releases. But starting August 14, you can buy Crystal Pepsi once again at all major retailers.
Clearly Canadian - Way before everyone was sipping cans of LaCroix, this was the super popular sparkling water in everyone’s hand. The fruit-flavored sweetened drinks are now for sale online at Cost Plus World Market and at Hy-Vee grocery stores. They come in Blackberry, Wild Cherry, Orchard Peach, and Raspberry and we loved them all.
Zima - Another clear beverage is back, but this one is alcoholic. This boozy soda was discontinued in 2008, but since last month, Walmart is selling it again. Cheers!
