A female passenger thought that she had won the aviation lottery yesterday after landing two spare seats next to her on a flight. But the woman’s dream quickly turned into a nightmare when a passenger in the row behind used the empty chair to prop up their swollen, bare feet. Jessie Char, from San Francisco, spent the next few hours on a JetBlue flight staring at the lovely sight. While placing a foot on one rest is disgusting, by taking up both arms of the chair meant that Jessie couldn’t even use one of the two spare seats without coming into contact.

A 3-year-old Golden Retriever named Rio gave birth to a litter of nine puppies, but one of them stood out from the rest.Owner Louise Sutherland was assisting in the delivery when she noticed one of the puppies was green.The puppy was named Forest because of its green fur.
