You've got to be able to really keep your cool under pressure when you're flying a huge hunk of aluminum thousands of feet above the ground. This student pilot was served the ultimate test when his engine suddenly failed and he was forced to asses the options and choose a landing spot within seconds. Luckily, the young pilot passed with flying colors.

During a new interview with Uproxx, Iron Man 3 writer Shane Black disclosed some pretty tender details regarding Marvel's strategic decision to genderswap the villain from female to male. Here's the chat from Uproxx, transcribed:

Why? Rebecca Hall’s character does have an abrupt ending.

All I’ll say is this, on the record: There was an early draft of Iron Man 3 where we had an inkling of a problem. Which is that we had a female character who was the villain in the draft. We had finished the script and we were given a no-holds-barred memo saying that cannot stand and [Marvel’s] changed our minds because, after consulting, we’ve decided that toy won’t sell as well if it’s a female.

What?

So, we had to change the entire script because of toy making. Now, that’s not Feige. That’s Marvel corporate, but now you don’t have that problem anymore.

Ike Perlmutter is gone.

Yeah, Ike’s gone. But New York called and said, “That’s money out of our bank.” In the earlier draft, the woman was essentially Killian — and they didn’t want a female Killian, they wanted a male Killian. I liked the idea, like Remington Steele, you think it’s the man but at the end, the woman has been running the whole show. They just said, “no way."

Things That Scream 'I Make Poor Financial Decisions'

I'm the kinda girl who loves costumes, so when any themed party rolls around, I go all out and spend a ton of money to make my costume the most creative it could be. My family says I could be spending my money on better things, but it is what it is. I mean, I could be spending it on much worse things, right? They should just be grateful I'm not purchasing drugs with my money. A recent AskReddit thread documented things that scream 'I made poor financial decisions,' and all of a sudden, I feel less guilty about my crazy costume purchases. Have a look below.

You've got to appreciate how they made sure to give her some time to collect her breath after completing the free dive, and before celebrating. Just consider how many breaths you might've clocked while she was doing her whole dive sequence.

The sling shot ride itself already looks thrilling enough as it is without a seagull dropping in to say what's up to your face. Clearly, this poor girl was rattled to her core. We're just glad that everyone appears to have exited the chaotic collision of forces without being injured.

Nightmare Mother-In-Law Steals Grandsons Journal To Prove He's 'Anti-Social'

Even though you're blood-related, it's not always guaranteed that you'll be tight with your family. Sure you probably have some stuff in common, but it doesn't mean you'll all be best friends or even acquaintances for that matter. Let's be real, we all have some relatives we don't vibe with, and that just don't understand us in the slightest. Everyone has that crazy aunt, or uncle, or in-law, it's basically guaranteed. All you can do is remind yourself that they're the messed up one, and not you — unless it actually is you.

28 Chonky Opossum Memes With A Lil Extra Junk In The Trunk

How many opossum memes have you come across lately? The answer is not nearly enough! We are here to change that and give you the appropriate dose of chonky opossum humor to get your day going and your energy flowing. 

These animals are most famous for "playing possum." When threatened by dogs, foxes, or bobcats, opossums sometimes flop onto their sides and lie on the ground with their eyes closed or staring fixedly into space. They extend their tongues and generally appear to be dead. This ploy may put a predator off its guard and allow the opossum an opportunity to make its escape. These Oscar worthy actors are known for their silliness and exceptional acting skills, now let's have a laugh.
