In Russia, plane rides you.

A UTair flight froze to the ground at Igarka airport in Siberia on Tuesday, and passengers had to get out and push the 30-ton aircraft to get it moving again.

One of the men in the video is heard saying: "Real men can plant a tree, build a house, and push a plane," according to the Siberian Times.

The temperatures in the region above the Arctic Circle hit below 52C, and the brakes froze because they used the wrong kind of grease.

New information has come to light in Hello Kitty's plans for total world domination.

The innocent-looking cartoon kitten has penetrated nearly every potential market (she even has her own AK-47) and now the first Hello Kitty Cafe in the United Stated is coming to Orange County, CA, according to LAist.

The cafe is scheduled to open in the summer of 2015, and until that then - if you just really, really need your Hello Kitty fix - there is a mobile truck available for private parties, that serves pastries like donuts and macarons.

In a scene that sounds straight out of a video game, police officers and a helicopter descended on a Washington home Thursday, after receiving a 911 call that the family inside was being held hostage.

According to Komo News:

"The caller said he had an assault rifle and he had placed explosives in the yard and he was holding a family hostage," said Nathan Elledge, chief of police at the Sammamish Police Department. "He wanted $20,000 to release the family."

It turns out that the call was actually made by a computer, and the owner of the home is a top exec at Bungie, the game developer behind "Halo" and the recent hit "Destiny."

And on top of all that, investigators think the suspect "has ties to the video game community."

Let the conspiracy theories begin.
