Life can be unfair. Sometimes bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people, seemingly without reason. But sometimes, though, justice shines through in the most poetic way possible, and people who made dumb choices end up getting their comeuppance in the most satisfying ways. These are those stories.
For pretty much your whole life, you've been drinking processed, pasteurized milk. There's a good reason for this: raw, unfiltered milk contains dangerous micro-organisms that wreck havoc on your digestive system, not to mention that it spoils far quicker than standard grocery store milk. For a while, most states banned the selling of raw milk for this very reason.
But West Virginia lawmakers viewed the prohibition on raw milk as a dangerous government intrusion into the private sector. After they passed a bill that successfully lifted the prohibition on raw milk production, they all chugged a glass of it in celebration. Almost immediately, the lawmakers reported having severe stomach pains and pounding headaches.
At first, the lawmakers deny any connection to their stomach bugs and the milk, saying "I highly doubt the raw milk had anything to do with it," and, "there still shouldn't be a law against allowing people to do what they want."
A self-styled "Christian prophet" at the Krueger National Park in South Africa suddenly became "overcome" with the spiritual imperative to leave his safari vehicle to enter the lion habitat while the lions were feeding in an attempt to "control" them by entering a trance and speaking in tongues.
The lions didn't like having their meal interrupted. Immediately realizing his grave error, the "prophet" immediately started to run. But the lions got the better of him, tackling him to the ground and mauling the intruder.
After undergoing immediate emergency surgery, the man stated "I do not know what came over me."
Second Amendment supporter and social media personality Jamie Gilt was a spokesman who argued for children to own and train with weapons for their own safety.
A few hours after broadcasting to her followers that her 4-year old son was "getting jacket up to target shoot," she was shot in the back by the child with her own firearm.
She was driving her car where she had left a loaded .45 caliber piece in the back seat within reach of her child. The curious boy decided to try the firearm, which fired through the driver's seat of the car. The bullet ripped through the seat and punctured Gilt's back, necessitating an emergency trip to the hospital.
Bored teenagers in Australia were passing the time by ripping seats off of public transportation and throwing them into oncoming traffic, a ridiculous and dangerous act for many reasons. In addition to the act, the teens also filmed their endeavors and posted the videos to social media.
"You hit a f**king car, bro, that's gonna be on the news!" one of the teens says with glee in the video.
After the teens uploaded the video to Facebook, they provided clear evidence of their wrongdoings. Because of the bad act, the kids faced up to five years in prison.
