You're probably already thinking I'm a woman with missing teeth, sitting in her trailer park with her 15 cats, desperately trying to get "Dancing With the Stars" to come in while I mess with the bunny ears on the TV I fished out of the dumpster, all while I'm screaming at my bastard children who are running around naked with ten-day-old Kool-Aid mustaches.

A man in Prince George, British Columbia, thought he had the perfect way to propose to his high school sweetheart. Instead of popping the question on a moonlit Caribbean beach this week, though, Aaron Tkachuk, 24, wound up popping the question to Jennifer Rubadeau, also 24, at an airport security screening station.

Ari Derfel leads a trashy life. He just wants to remind everyone else that they do, too. 

The 35-year-old Berkeley caterer said he has saved every piece of trash he has generated over the past year to see how much garbage one person creates. In his case, it was about 96 cubic feet.
