An earthquake measuring 8.2 on the Richter Scale hit the coast of Chile yesterday, killing at least five people and causing untold damage throughout the region.

With the area now on a tsunami alert, many celebrities took to Twitter last night and sent along thoughts and prayers to those affected by the natural disaster...

@MarleeMatlin: For people of Chile and Peru: Por favor, estar a salvo y seguir las instrucciones de evacuación. Be safe and follow evacuation instructions.

@Snooki: My prayers are with Chile right now. Stay safe. #BirthCountry.

This video from 2013's Comic-Con went viral last weekend, and awesomely so.

It features a young girl asking former Star Trek: The Next Generation star Wil Wheaton, "When you were a kid, were you called a nerd, and how did you deal with it?"

His answer? We'll let Wil take it from here, but it'll make your day:

"When I was a little boy," Wil said, "I was called a nerd all the time because I didn't like sports, I loved to read, I liked math and science."

"I thought school was really cool, and it hurt, a lot."

"Because it's never OK when a person makes fun of you for something that you didn't choose. We didn't choose to be nerds."

"We can't help it that we like those things."

While April Fools’ Day pranks are a dime a dozen and most can be seen coming a mile away, an Australian DJ duo pulled off an epic one this year.

Ryan “Fitzy” Fitzgerald and Michael “Wippa” Wipfli resigned on air in a pre-recorded segment, dramatically peacing out without notifying their bosses.

The bosses’ reactions were then captured via special cameras that had been set up around the station as they panicked to yank the f-bomb-filled tirade:

“Mate, I’m being serious here, and I get a little bit emotional when I’m talking about this,” Ryan began. ”I’ve been having some real problems with work."

"I wanna do this live on air, and I think it’s a perfect moment to tell you, and tell everyone what’s going on. Mate, I, I’ve just had enough. I’ve honestly had enough."

"I’m not spending enough time with my family. Work has just been draining, and it’s been too much, and I’m working in a place where I feel…”

“Mate, I’m serious, I’m completely f--king overworked!” he continued. ”Wippa, listen to me, and I told you I was going to do this. Mate, you know this."

Colleen Cudney was convicted of DUI in 2012, and placed on probation as a result. One condition of her probation was to remain alcohol free.

Imagine how spooked she must have been the day after St. Patrick’s Day, when the 22-year-old was summoned for a random breathalyzer test.

The Westland, Michigan resident passed, but the made the unbelievably baffling to celebrate the good news on Facebook. People are not smart.

Police told WDIV she posted, “Buzz killer for me, I had to breatalyze this morning and I drank yesterday but I passed thank god lol my dumbass."

A buzz killer for her, indeed.

But not as much so as when Colleen Cudney's LOL-tastic Facebook post got the attention of the Westland police, who notified her probation officer.

You won't believe this, but a Dallas man who sent a resume, job application, and photograph of his penis to a Texas company did not get the position.

He is, however, in a precarious legal position as a result. He faces a misdemeanor charge for his trouble, as the recipients were apparently unamused.

The man was hilariously applying for a position at Texas Workforce Solutions, a company devoted to, of all things, preparing clients for the workplace.

When a 25-year-old employee of the organization received the guy's application and unique letter of recommendation (so to speak), she promptly called police.

They tracked his application, which had been sent from a personal email and issued the man a ticket for "obscene display or distribution," a class C misdemeanor.

A spokesperson for the Dallas Police Department confirmed this actually happened, and said that as far as he can tell, the man is still unemployed.

"I think I know why he can't find a job," he reportedly told the Dallas Observer.

Yeah. On a related note, we know why these people are unemployed, too ...

Carly "@CarlyCrunkBear" McKinney, whose handle says it all really, was a 10th grade math teacher who often posted images like this on Twitter. Her employers were not happy and placed her on administrative leave. Her students thought she was pretty awesome, and protested to get her back. To no avail. She was fired in the end.

Josh Elliott is leaving Good Morning America to join NBC Sports, while Amy Robach will replace him as co-anchor, ABC announced in a memo Sunday.

ABC News president Ben Sherwood confirmed that he had been contract talks with Elliott for several months and were not able to agree to terms.

While "we worked hard to close a significant gap between our generous offer and his expectations ... Josh felt he deserved a different deal," he said.

As a result, Elliott "chose a new path," but Sherwood went on to add that, "I want to thank Josh for his many contributions to GMA and ABC News."

Amy Robach, who revealed in October that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer following an on-air mammogram, will co-anchor the show.

In jarring NFL news, the Philadelphia Eagles released star wide receiver DeSean Jackson Friday, despite the 27-year-old turning in a career-best 2013 season.

The Eagles decided not to bring him back in 2014 not for financial or football reasons, but because of his alleged ties to gang members in Southern California.

The team's announcement came shortly after NJ.com published a report by Eliot Shorr-Parks and A.J. Perez that outlined the alleged connections of the NFL star.

According to the bombshell article, DeSean Jackson has ties to gang members in Los Angeles who have been connected to at least two homicides since 2010.

Citing unnamed sources, it reported that the Eagles were more concerned with Jackson's off-field relationships and behavior than with his on-field performance.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Eagles were aware of the alleged relationships in the report and opted to release Jackson rather than pursue a trade.

According to Schefter, "it got to the point where the Eagles knew not only about the revelations in that story, but they knew other information as well."

Corrie Anne Long, a Texas middle school teacher, faces criminal charges after a student told police that she had performed oral sex on him in the classroom.

Authorities say the student in question is in eighth grade.

Long, 43, is charged with sexual assault on a minor under 17 and improper relationship with a student at Hopper M.S. in Harris County, northwest of Houston.

Administrators contacted police after one of the alleged victim's classmates told a teacher he saw Long and the student engaged in "suspicious horseplay."

Yes, that was the term used to describe it apparently.

According to court documents obtained by the Houston Chronicle, the student said he saw the alleged victim spanking the teacher's rear end.

He also saw the teacher sit in the student's lap.

Pele is dead. At least one were to trust CNN, which many people understandably might given its (rapidly diminishing) reputation as a real news organization.

Fortunately for Pele, and unfortunately for CNN's future, he is alive and well.

The 74-year-old soccer legend is doing just fine despite a death hoax that gained steam on Friday and apparently duped the CNN show New Day.

And as a result, the network erroneously tweeted that Pele died (see below):

  • Pele Dead?
  • Pele Pic

A rep for Pele quickly shot down this “breaking” story and confirmed he's A-O-K.

A rep for CNN confirmed the network is going off the air in May. Just kidding!

Death hoaxes and false death rumors have always been around, but they've become 100 times common in the age of social media and declining journalism.

Just ask Pawn Stars' Chumlee or Wayne Knight in the past month alone.

Karma. It can be a ... you know what.

In the following video, a woman tapes a truck driver while he tailgates her on the highway and then flips her the middle finger when he finally passes her in the right lane.

He then immediately gets into a car accident.

"I couldn't move over because there were trucks in the right lane," the woman, who only identifies herself as Florida Driver, writes in the video description. “And I sure as heck wasn't going to speed on a rainy day with the roads being as slick as they were."
