  • American woman becomes princess after meeting a real prince in a nightclub

    Most of us can but dream of rocking up to the club and casually meeting a member of a royal family. But, that's what happened to Ariana Austin on the dance floor of Washington D.C. nightclub Pearl back in December 2005 when she met Joel Makonnen, a.k.a. Prince Yoel.  The story didn't end there for Austin and Makonnen. Twelve years on from their nightclub meet-cute, the couple tied the knot, and Austin became a princess. SEE ALSO: Prince George's favourite film proves once and for all he just can't wait to be king Per the New York Times , Prince Yoel is the great-grandson of Haile Selassie, the last emperor of Ethiopia, part of the Solomonic dynasty. Austin also happens to be of noble blood: she's the granddaughter of the lord mayor of Georgetown, Guyana. A post shared by Ariana Austin Makonnen (@chezariana) on Sep 15, 2017 at 7:14am PDT Enough about royalty, we want to know what went down in that nightclub on that fateful night in 2005. That night, Makonnen strolled over to Austin and her friend and said: "You guys look like an ad for Bombay Sapphire," according to the NYT . It appears Makonnen's regal background didn't help him out in the chat-up line department. Apparently, it took Makonnen just five more minutes to tell Austin: "You're going to be my girlfriend." Well, he certainly didn't waste any time.  Official pics are here! All credit to the talented @dotunayodeji.

Austin works at the Executives' Alliance for Boys and Men of Color, and Makonnen works at Otsuka America Pharmaceutical.  Congrats to the happy (royal) couple!

  • Pilot pulls ‘risky’ landing stunt in jet carrying 200 passengers

    An Air Berlin pilot has landed in hot water after appearing to play barnstormer with 200 passengers aboard, according to reports. The pilot buzzed Dusseldorf’s airport terminal in a maneuver that was meant to mark the carrier’s last trans-Atlantic flight Monday, according to reports. The Airbus A330 from Miami was on final approach when it banked sharply to the left over the runway, performed a go-around maneuver and landed safely. “It’s too high! It’s too high!” one person can be heard saying in a video that captured the dramatic stunt. “What is he doing?” a woman says.

  • Nurse fleeing California wildfires puts horse in car, picture goes viral

    Leave it to human ingenuity to solve almost anything. Lauren Mesaros, a California nurse, needed to flee from the Tubbs Fire going on in Napa, Sonoma and Lake counties in Northern California. Mesaros also needed to get her three horses, including her pony Stardust, away from the flames as well.  The problem? The trailer only held two of the three horses. Mesaros' solution? Put Stardust in the car. “He actually walked right into the car like a dog would,” Mesaros said in an interview with SF Gate. Mesaros said she put Stardust into the back of her 2001 Honda Accord, aided by her friend Carol Spears, whom Mesaros described as “a horse whisperer.” Mesaros' sister-in-law posted the picture to Facebook,
