David Hester's lawsuit against A&E, claiming he was wrongfully terminated and that Storage Wars is rigged, has been somewhat limited by judge's ruling.

As such, A&E has drawn first blood in this legal battle.

L.A. Superior Court judge Michael Johnson tossed Hester's claim of unfair business practices, and stated that his wrongful termination claims must be more specific.

Hester is a professional buyer of abandoned storage lockers; Storage Wars shows him and other buyers competing for the contents of those lockers.

Pi Day is here again! You know, March 14? 3/14? Get it?!

For those of us who aren't irrationally interested in numbers, Pi is named after a mathematical constant - the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter.

While usually rounded to 3.14, Pi is not a finite number. In actuality it is 22/7, which has been calculated to a million-plus digits. It is LITERALLY never-ending.

Pumpkin Pi

Here are some ways to mark this special occasion:

  • Bake yourself a Pumpkin Pi. It's funny and probably tastes awesome.
  • Wish everyone a happy Pi Day just to see if anyone actually gets it.
  • Go for a 5K run. That's 3.10 miles, which is like really close to 3.14.
  • Hold a moment of silence at 1:59:26 p.m. (Pi = 3.1415926...).
  • Celebrate Albert Einstein's birthday too ... sort of fits, right?
  • Listen to the Pi rap below (obviously someone made one)!

Jorge Mario Bergoglio has been elected the Roman Catholic Church's new Pope. The first Latin American to be Pope, he will call himself Francis I.

As Pope Francis I, Argentine Cardinal Bergoglio replaces Pope Benedict XVI, who resigned last month saying he was not strong enough to lead.

About an hour ago, white smoke billowing from the Sistine Chapel chimney announced to the world that cardinals gathered inside had made their choice.

The 115 cardinals have been in isolation since Tuesday, and held four inconclusive votes. At least 77 of them, or two-thirds, are needed to elect the Pope.

Before the conclave began, there was no clear front-runner to replace Benedict, leading millions to wonder who will be the next Pope. Now we know.

Drivers in China, apparently unwilling to submit to the intrusion and burden of seatbelt laws, have come up with a creative workaround: The seatbelt t-shirt!

Seat Belt Shirt

The shirts feature a graphic with a stripe that runs from shoulder to hip, creating the illusion that the driver is wearing his or her seatbelt while seated.

They cost $8, which is way less than a ticket. Score?

Police have begun cracking down on drivers for not wearing their seatbelts after a rash of fatal collisions resulting in people being thrown from cars.

Which, of course, makes one wonder why more drivers don't ACTUALLY WANT TO WEAR THEM for their own benefit ... but we digress.

Gotta stick it to a repressive regime somehow?

A Montana man accused of waterboarding four kids "as a learning experience for them" has reached a plea deal in which he will receive probation.

Waterboarding Guy Mug Shot

The 42-year-old man pleaded guilty to four misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child and was sentenced to 180 days for each charge.

The sentences were suspended, however, pending two years of probation, minus 80 days already spent in custody, the Independent Record reported.

The person(s) responsible for hacking celebrities' finances apparently like to think of themselves as heroes as well as outlaws ... a la Dexter Morgan.

At the top of the hackers' website is the line, "If you believe that God makes miracles, you have to wonder if Satan has a few up his sleeve."

This is one of the most memorable Dexter quotes:

The hackers' love for the Showtime series/protagonist apparently runs as deep as their dislike for Michelle Obama, the most famous of their celeb targets.

The website's source code also apparently includes a link to a hidden YouTube video that doesn't appear anywhere on the actual page.

The video is the Dexter end credits theme music.

Michelle Obama has been hacked in an alarming breach of security by unknown cyber-assailants who have disclosed the First Lady's financial information.

The hackers also obtained and published financial info on Beyonce, Jay-Z, Britney Spears, Donald Trump, Kim Kardashian and other celebrities.

Unhappy FLOTUS

A website run by the hackers has posted Michelle's credit report, social security number, phone numbers, banking and mortgage info and credit card details.

The website also hacked V.P. Joe Biden's history, but the info they were able to obtain was extremely limited in his case (unlike Michelle Obama's).

The motives of the hacker(s) could be more than sporting.
