She may not take credit for it, but the fact remains: Antoinette Tuff saved an untold number of lives Tuesday.

Michael Brandon Hill, 20, took an AK-47 on to the campus of Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy in Decatur, Ga., but surrendered to authorities without causing any real harm.

All because Tuff opened up and managed to relate to the troubled young man.

"Don't feel bad, baby," the front office employee is heard saying to Hill on 911 tapes that were released yesterday.

"My husband just left me after 33 years ... I've got a son that's multiple disabled... It's all going to be well."

We have another contender for Worst Pet Owner in the World.

A couple days after a woman responded to a Craigslist ad because someone threatened to shoot his dog, and a couple weeks after a man actually blew his canine up, we have news of a four-month old kitten who is fighting for its life.

After being doused in gasoline and set on fire.

A $5,000 reward has been established to catch the awful people involved, as the cat continues to struggle with no whiskers and severely singed ears.

Watch the sad report now and let's all hope the little guy pulls through:

James Francis Edwards, one of three teens charged in the killing of Christopher Lane, posted racist Tweets on his account, according to a new report.

One tweet from him reads, "90% of white ppl are nasty. #HATE THEM." Another reads, "Ayeee I knocced out 5 woods since Zimmerman court! :)"

The Daily Caller says "woods" is a derogatory term for white people.

Edwards and Chancey Allen Luna, 16, were charged with first-degree murder as adults Tuesday and are being held without bond in Duncan, Oklahoma.

Bond was set at $1 million for 17-year-old Michael Jones, who allegedly drove the vehicle carrying the suspects accused of murdering Chris Lane.

Don't like coffee? Can't stand energy drinks? Well have we got a deal for you!

Well, not us, rather Devin Soni and Ben Yu, Harvard graduates who suffer from the horrible affliction of caffeine sensitivity.

They have found a way to deliver energy through a spray that you apply to your neck rather than having to drink coffee or guzzle Red Bull. 

Check out their IndieGoGo video below!

Okay. I realize this is apparently a very super serious matter, to these guys at least, but surely I'm not the only one that kept expecting the Energizer Bunny to walk through this video or have someone jump through the screen yelling about energy.

Shopping for a wedding dress isn't always the joyous experience it's cracked up to be ... especially if you're a plus-size bride and they wrap you in an elastic band beforehand.

Seriously, this happened to Chastity Garner.

A stylist herself by profession, Garner recently had a horrible experience in a bridal salon, which she described to The Huffington Post:

"When I went in to get fitted [for a wedding dress] they wouldn't put the gown on me because the gown was a size eight, so they pushed it up to me."

Then, she recalled, "they took an elastic band around my body and held it up ... I thank God that I'm a stylist and I know what works for me."

"But what about all those girls who don't have that eye?"

Bradley Manning, the U.S. soldier sentenced to 35 years for leaking classified documents, says he will undergo hormone therapy to become a woman.

He says he identifies as female, wants to be known as Chelsea Manning and wishes to begin treatment immediately to change genders.

"I am Chelsea Manning. I am female," the U.S. Army private said in a statement read by his attorney, David Coombs, on NBC's Today show.

"Given the way that I feel, and have felt since childhood, I want to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible. I hope that you will support me in this transition."

"I also request that, starting today, you refer to me by my new name and use the feminine pronoun (except in official mail to the confinement facility)."

"I look forward to receiving letters from supporters and having the opportunity to write back."

If you thought Kim Kardashian's QuickTrim was bad, an Iowa woman recently bought a tapeworm on the Internet and ate it in a bid to lose weight.

Fortunately, or unfortunately, she got sick and went to the doctor, who was so stumped that he had to call the state health department for guidance.

The agency told the doctor to have his patient de-wormed by way of a special medication that kills the parasite. Yes ... he had a woman de-wormed.

Dr. Patricia Quinlisk, medical director at the Iowa Department of Public Health, recounted the incident in an e-mail to public-health workers Thursday.

The image of a mom breastfeeding while practicing yoga naked went viral awhile back. Now, the subject of that photo, Amy, is speaking out in its defense.

Amy tells BabyCenter that the photo was not staged, like many thought it was. She really does do this regularly, and unapologetically at that:

"The truth is we were living on a small community in Hawaii where our land was clothing optional and yoga was/is a necessity!" Amy said.

"I was just doin’ my daily flow when the little sweet pea came to sneak a suckle."

Naked Breastfeeding Yoga Mom

Amy said she chose a "simple life" in her 20s, focusing on what she believes are core values and traveling with minimal commitments.

Take note, THGers. Here is what we've learned about 911 this month:

Do not call if McDonald's messes up your order.

Do not call if the cable goes out, even during a Breaking Bad episode.

And do not call if you are in need of a pen, something New Hamphire resident Jeanie Dufresne discovered the hard way this week.

As explained in the following video, Dufresne angered an operator for making just such a request over the weekend, getting herself arrested for the THIRD TIME THIS MONTH for using 911 in an inappropriate manner.

The 66-year old told authorities each time that she just wanted someone to talk to. Darn. This story just went from funny to sad...

Former Prison Break star Wentworth Miller has broken some very personal news about himself:

He's gay.

The actor made this public reveal while simultaneously taken a stance against Russia's anti-homosexual legislation, which bans any sort of "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations."

In response to an invitation to attend the St. Petersburg International Film Festival, Miller wrote a letter that has been posted on the GLADD website and which reads:

"Thank you for your kind invitation. As someone who has enjoyed visiting Russia in the past and can also claim a degree of Russian ancestry, it would make me happy to say yes. However, as a gay man, I must decline."
