The Nine Scariest Things About Owning A House

If you've never owned a house, you might be under the impression that the huge mortgage is the scariest thing about home ownership. Or maybe the fact that you can't easily up and move to a new town when a great job opportunity arises. No, what's really scary is that there's no landlord to take care of all the things that can go wrong. It's your house, and your responsibility. And there are plenty of things that can go wrong. Oh, like the heater not working? Ha! That's elementary. Call a heating and air company; they'll fix it. There are much worse things to scare you about home ownership, listed at the Concourse.

Chicago man verbally assaults Muslim teens at family restaurant

The Great Hanoi Rat Massacre of 1902 Did Not Go as Planned

At the turn of the 20th century, Vietnam was a French colony. The administrators built their own French neighborhood in Hanoi to house their families, complete with a modern sewer system underneath. That particular amenity of Western life was not compatible with the existing ecosystem of Vietnam.
It turns out that when Doumer’s colonial government laid more than nine miles of sewage pipe beneath Hanoi, it inadvertently created nine miles of cool, dark rodent paradise, where the pests could breed without fear of predators. And when they got hungry, the rats had direct access to the city’s ritziest real estate via a subterranean superhighway. Under the streets of French Hanoi, rats multiplied exponentially—and then skittered to the surface.
As if it wasn’t enough that these furry invaders disrupted the colonists’ illusion of European tranquility in Asia, cases of the bubonic plague started popping up, and rats were suspected of carrying the disease. Something had to be done.
The colonial government waged a war on rats that began with professional rat hunters, but soon expanded to offering a bounty to the public: a penny for each rat killed. You might be able to see where this is going, and you'd be right. No matter how many bounties were paid, the rats only multiplied. Read the story of the Great Hanoi Rat Massacre at Atlas Obscura.

Bulldog Watches Horror Movie

Flat screen TVs have opened up a whole new world for cats and dogs and other pets. The older cathode-ray-tube TVs never held their interest. But now we are seeing our pets experience movies as if they were real life. For example, see how a bulldog named Kahleesi is really getting into watching a horror film.
Just as she would if it were real, Khaleesi keeps an eye on everything. When something is out of the ordinary or threatening, she barks a warning to the humans on the TV. That's a good dog. Brave, too!

Cop Attacked By Wild Animal Inside Police Station

The police department represents safety, security and defense to many people, and therefore police stations are seen as extremely safe spaces because there are so many cops coming and going from the station all day every day.
But sometimes things go all Assault On Precinct 13 because bad guys like to target cops when they have nothing left to lose, and apparently so do rogue rodents.
This horrifying security camera footage was shot inside the Saint Petersburg police station in Florida, but the same kind of savage animal attack can happen at a station near you.
