South Australia was plunged into darkness yesterday as one of the worst storms of the past century hit. In amongst the wreckage and dangerous conditions, some opportunities to create spectacular pictures for Instagram and Twitter emerged. We're loving these - but if you're going out taking photos today, remember the storm hasn't finished yet, so stay safe!

After last night's revelations that Shane Warne is casually threatening to sue Channel Nine, everyone seems to be getting behind the Aussie cricket champion.

Warne was likened to a "creepy uncle" on The Today Show - a comment that he wasn't particularly fond of.

Some big names have jumped to the defence of Warnie; notably, his ex-fiancee Liz Hurley on Twitter:

Warnie's mate Piers Morgan also reckons he was hard-done by, Tweeting his own support:

Warnie Threatens To Sue Channel 9

Warnie's not a happy man

Shane Warne — ever the shrinking violet — has attracted attention today for a comment he left on model Emily Ratajkowski’s Instagram.

The comment provoked a hashtag campaign urging Em Rata to #GiveShaneAGo, which naturally made its way in to the media’s glare.

The segment Sunday Jury on Channel 9’s Today show picked up on it, and weren’t entirely complimentary of Warnie’s tuning game, likening him to a “creepy uncle”.

Watch the short chat here:

 

Naturally Warnie picked up these comments better than anyone could pick his flipper, and he angrily deposited them over cow corner for six.

 

The most interesting tweet, though, was the last one, where he threatened his own employers:

 

It’s not hard to imagine Channel 9 have probably reached out to Warnie to try and broker a peace accord already.

Luxbet Just Fired Their Social Media Manager & He’s Gone Rogue

“What the hell??? Just got fired on my day off…”

UPDATE: It was a hoax... well played Luxbet, well played.

First things first, this could be a marketing stunt from Luxbet but here is what's happened.

The social media manager is claiming that he’s been given the flick.

He says he's locked the company out of their own Twitter account and has posted a number of posts taking aim at the betting agency.

At 10:30 this morning he posted a screenshot of his termination email, writing “What the hell??? Just got fired on my day off…”

Since then he has posted a Cat Video and claimed to have changed the Twitter password with the hashtag #DaveGetsFired.

Stunt Pilot Centimetres From Being Decapitated

Pilot Thom Richard was bloody lucky to escape injury after he nearly had his head taken off after another plane's wing collided with his cockpit in the US.

Thom Richard said he saw the flagman run out onto the runway, waving his hands over his head as if something was wrong.

"The aircraft to my right started rolling and a few seconds later the number six and eight aircraft flew by me on either side," he said.

"All I could do at that point was hope the number seven (center) aircraft would clear me on the centerline to my right." Watch the video below.

A “Shit-Ton" Of Famous People Urge People Not To Vote For Trump

"Mark's gonna have his dick out"

Robert Downey Jr. promises that Mark Ruffalo is "gonna have his dick out" if all Americans enrol to vote.

This Joss Whedon-directed SaveTheDay.vote video features 27 actors including Downey Jr. & Ruffalo as well as Avengers Scarlett Johansson & Don Cheadle.

Although, Whedon insists the video is not about shooting down Donald Trump.

“It’s not about attacking because Donny’s real good at attacking himself,” Whedon told The Hollywood Reporter.

“It’s about getting people to vote, because it’s frightening the apathy that people are treating the most crucial election of their lifetimes with.”

Ronnie Pickering... One Year On

Ronnie Thickering..?

We can't believe it's already been a year since arguably the most famous road rage video went viral.

Who's Ronnie Pickering? This guy.

We've taken the liberty of bleeping out all the swear words for you (all 30, that's right, THIRTY of them). We'd love to show you the whole bit but it'd definitely NSFW... so you can watch it here if you dare.

Of course, we could never condone Ronnie's behaviour. He acts like a complete idiot. But it's how the Internet reacted to him that still makes us laugh.

Like this one...

...and this one...

...and this one...

One year on, it's still crystal clear. It's not really worth the pointless road rage for what the Internet can bring back as karma.
