…You can play Counter-Strike in the Haunted Mansion ride?

Counter-Strike Haunted Mansion

A Counter-Strike map-modder named NIPPER created a reproduction of Disney’s The Haunted Mansion ride inside of the game, and when I say reproduction, I don’t just mean he created a level that’s kinda/sorta like the ride with a few nice touches thrown in here and there. No, this is a 100%, practically photo-realistic reproduction of the ride that you can actually ride through, complete with narration, backstage areas, special effects and more. I don’t know how he did it, but I sure do appreciate the effort:

Plus, if you’d like to ride the ride and see the details for yourself, you can even download the map pack from the joe.to community and play through the level on your own Counter-Strike game.

…Beauty pageants are dangerous?

Ingrid Marie RiveraThis story is almost too good to be true: During this year’s Miss Puerto Rico pageant, Ingrid Marie Rivera managed to win, despite having her gown and make-up spiked with pepper spray.

Though composed onstage, Marie had to run backstage and strip off her clothes to apply ice bags to her face and body as she swelled up and broke out in hives twice during the competition.

Need a bit of extra excitement to add to the movie script?

Due to a bomb threat, officials had already postponed the last day of the pageant to ensure everyone’s safety.

Who knew the world of beauty could be so deadly?
