Bride 'pulls gun out of wedding dress and points it at groom's head' This couple’s honeymoon period is definitely over. Weddings are meant to be a time for love and celebration, but a bride’s big day was ruined when she was arrested on assault charges over an alleged gun incident. Tennessee bride Kate Prichard allegedly pulled a gun out of her wedding dress and put it to her groom’s head during a drunken motel argument, just hours after the wedding. The 25-year-old pointed the 9mm handgun at her new husband James Burton’s head and pulled the trigger, however it was not loaded, police say. The bride (not pictured) was arrested on her wedding day  Credit: Reuters  Police were called to the scene after the new bride then loaded the gun and fired it in the air, it is alleged. “She pulled out of her wedding dress, a 9mm pistol. Pointed it at her husband’s head and pulled the trigger,” Sgt. Kyle Evans from the Murfreesboro Police Department told NewsChannel 5. “[The] responding officer let the husband know the honeymoon was over and his new wife was going to jail. “Both were very uncooperative with authorities.

Google points out everyone's terrible spelling, and then misspells a word

Google points out everyone's terrible spelling, and then misspells a wordWhile Scripps National Spelling Bee this week tries to convince us that America can spell, Google has the state-by-state breakdown to prove otherwise. SEE ALSO: California State University's grad stole features a pretty brutal spelling error The search engine revealed Tuesday which word comes up the most when people type in, "How to spell…" and the results are something else.  America's most misspelled words – it's #spellingbee week and we mapped top "how to spell" searches by state#dataviz pic.twitter.com/oHkRHj8Eku — GoogleTrends (@GoogleTrends) May 30, 2017 The results are telling — Wisconsin looks up how to spell their own state name the most, while New Hampshire is worried about diarrhea and getting that right. @GoogleTrends "Wisconsin" being the most misspelled word in Wisconsin is perfect. — Jamison Stoltz (@EditorStoltz) May 30, 2017 @GoogleTrends Diorrh… diahrr… dioeri… never mind… — davepaisley (@davepaisley) May 30, 2017 Google itself has some of its own spelling problems to sort out. Its original map spelled Washington D.C.'s most searched word as "nintey," which is definitely not how you spell out the number 90. It was corrected later, along with some incorrect letter counting, with a new map and legend marked as the "one to use."  We've made a few corrections to the legend. This is the one to use pic.twitter.com/0Z8fUlzmHc — GoogleTrends (@GoogleTrends) May 30, 2017 Helpfully, or embarrassingly, Google broke down the searches by letter-length. Most searches are for six to 10 letter words, like California, New York, Minnesota, Kentucky and Ohio's "beautiful" or Illinois' "appreciate." Good old Pennsylvania really pulled through with "sauerkraut." Some concernedly short search queries were "liar" in Rhode Island and "nanny" in Mississippi. The two longest words hailed from West Virginia and Connecticut (way harder to spell than Wisconsin) and were the same: supercalifragilisticexpialidocious from
Mary Poppins. But the best finding was "tomorrow" topping searches in both Arizona and Colorado — but with different letter lengths. In Arizona, searches for the word were six to 10 letters, while in Colorado they were 11 to 19 letters — that's a lot of extra Ms and Rs. @GoogleTrends Interesting how "tomorrow" has eight letters in Arizona and eleven letters in Colorado — ᵖᵉᵗᵉ (@petecasellini) May 30, 2017 Catch the spelling bee finals on Thursday — they'll be on ESPN. Maybe "chihuahua" or "banana" will be the ultimate stumper. But probably not, considering last year's winning words were "gesellschaft" and "Feldenkrais."
