The most powerful typhoon of 2013 made landfall early today in central Philippines, resulting in a myriad of landslides, knocking out power and, as of this writing, killing at least four people.

Typhoon Haiyan started east in Samar and made its way west toward Panay around 4 a.m. EST.

Over 720,000 people have evacuated their homes in the wake of 125 mile-per-hour winds, with updates coming slowly due to a lack of power in the area.

But we know that at least one individual died via fallen tree, one was struck by lightning and two have been electrocuted as a result of the storm.

A Georgina couple having sex in a Waffle House parking lot was arrested last Sunday morning, according to local police, and that isn't even the best part.

Loganville, Ga., authorities said after they got busted, the woman was so drunk that she tried to put a cheeseburger on her foot as if it were a sandal.

Waffle House Sex Couple

"I guess that would speak to her level of intoxication," Assistant Chief of Police Dick Lowry said, noting that the sandal/burger mixup was a first for him.

One would assume, though you never know at Waffle House.

In any case, Rachel Gossett and Frank Lucas were cited in the November 3 incident for loitering and public drunkenness. And this was some real drunkenness.

Gretchen Holt-Witt of Califon, N.J., was relieved when son Liam's neuroblastoma, a form of nerve cancer, was in remission after treatment in 2007.

"We were so grateful his cancer was gone, we felt it was important to give back," says Holt-Witt, who held a bake sale for pediatric cancer research.

But a few dozen wouldn't do. They opted for 8,000 dozen.

  • Cookie Book
  • Cookie Sale

"We wanted to push our boundaries the way Liam's had been," says Holt-Witt, who along with her family and 250 friends, baked 96,000 cookies.

They raised $400,000 as a result.

Holt-Witt founded the non-profit organization Cookies For Kids' Cancer. People all around the country hold bake sales in the name of the organization.

Pope Francis' compassionate nature was poignantly captured in an instantly iconic image of him tenderly comforting a sick man by kissing him on the head.

At the end of his General Audience in Vatican City on Wednesday, when 50,000 attendees gathered with him, someone snapped the picture of the pontiff:

Pope Embraces Disfigured Man

Francis embraced the man afflicted with neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that causes pain and the formation of thousands of tumors on the body.

In the photo, the unnamed man buries his head in Francis' robes as the Pope puts his hand on his head, an image that went viral almost immediately.

Francis then leaned in to kiss the ailing man.

"True charity requires courage," the Pope Tweeted in September. "Let us over come the fear of getting our hands dirty so as to help those in need."

Justin Jedlica, a plastic surgery consultant who got 128 cosmetic procedures of his own, opens up about what it's like to become a full-blown addict.

He got his first surgery at age 18. He proceeded to get 127 more.

"It was something that for me was important, so I was always very frugal," he said, explaining how crucial this was "I didn't do a lot of things my friends did."

"They wanted to go buy their cars and buy their stereo systems and spend their money on their clothes. Instead, I was drawn towards plastic surgery."

To what end? See above. Even he would admit this got a bit out of control.

Deborah Cohan should serve as an inspiration to us all.

The mother of two underwent a double mastectomy Tuesday at San Francisco's Mt. Zion Hospital and didn't merely put on a brave face... she put on her dancing shoes!

Yes, Cohan and her medical team spent six minutes moving and shaking to Beyonce's "Get Me Bodied (Extended Remix)" prior to the procedure, an event she teased on her Caring Bridge blog before going under the knife.

"I will be dancing in my little hospital gown and bouffant cap in the Mt. Zion operating room with the surgical and anesthesia teams," Cohan wrote, explaining further:

A man in northern China filed a lawsuit against his estranged wife this month after he deemed their newborn to be "incredibly ugly" and blamed the child's appearance on his mother's unattractive genes.

And the guy actually won $120,000 as a result.

Jian Feng said in court documents that he married his wife "out of love," but that the couple began having "marital issues" soon after the birth of their daughter.

She was "incredibly ugly," Feng said. "To the point where it horrified me."

Kids dressing like KKK members and women donning burning Twin Tower Halloween costumes make us feel sad about the future of mankind.

But this photo makes us feel happy - and we're not alone.

First posted on Reddit, the image depicts a subway passenger fast asleep on the shoulder of a stranger sitting next to him on the Q Line in Brooklyn.

After the compassionate gesture went viral this week, the nice man on the right was identified as Isaac Theil. And he told Tablet Magazine why he was content to be used as a human pillow.

Stranger Sleeps on Subway Passenger

"I simply remembered the times my own head would bop on someone’s shoulder because I was so tired after a long day," Theil said.

Take note, idiots who dressed as the burning Twin Towers: THIS is how you celebrate Halloween!

Texas couple David and Natalie Sideserf exchanged vows late last month and then took the "Till death do us part" aspect to a new, awesomely creepy level via our favorite wedding cake of 2013.

It depicts a pair of bloody, severed heads and it was made by Natalie herself, who owns Austin bakery Sideserf Cake Studio.

"It was perfect for us," Natalie said. "Halloween [was] coming, my husband loves horror movies ... and I like sculpting humans."

One would think this goes without saying, but people never cease to amaze these days. If you're a middle school football coach planning your team banquet?

Hooters may not be the most appropriate location. Maybe.

Randy Burbach of Corbett Middle School in Oregon thought it was perfectly fine apparently, and got fired - after he refused to change venues, no less!

The chain of events is pretty fascinating. Let's break it down:

1. Burbach planned the Hooters banquet. 2. The school got wind of this. 3. The school said hey, maybe you should move the event? 4. He did not oblige.

Oh, but it continues: 5. He got fired. 6. The event is still on!
