The Kentucky Derby wasn’t the first time we expected another winner. Here are 5 other confusing moments

(CNN)He may have been first, but Maximum Security didn’t win, after all. It was confusing. But let’s face it, this wasn’t the first time we’ve anticipated a result, only to be surprised.

When you’re faced with someone spewing hatred toward you, it can be hard to keep calm—much less smile and wave. Shaymaa Ismaa’eel was attending a 3-day convention for Muslims in Washington, D.C. when she came upon a group of anti-Islamic protesters. Holding signs with statements like “Islam is a religion of blood & murder” and an inexplicable picture of a man dressed in drag with “If Muhammad were alive today” on it, the bigoted protesters were making a clear statement of hatred. Ismaa’eel told BBC Newsbeat that they used loudspeakers to deliver anti-Islamic messages. “They had posters with things like, ‘Islam is a hateful religion’ and were saying we were inside ‘listening to hate’,” she told Newsbeat. “I’m the sort …

Julian Assange jailed over bail breach

“I did what I thought at the time was the best or perhaps the only thing that I could have done,” he said. In mitigation, Mark Summers QC said his client was “gripped” by fears of rendition to the US over the years because of his work with whistle-blowing website Wikileaks. “As threats rained down on him from America, they overshadowed everything,” he said.

Thailand King Maha Vajiralongkorn crowned in elaborate three-day celebration

(CNN)Thailand has crowned its new king in a $31 million three-day celebration that comes almost 69 years to the day since the last coronation. He also delivered his first royal command as King, saying, “I shall continue, preserve, and build upon the royal legacy and shall reign with righteousness for the benefit and happiness of the people forever.” In some ways, Thitinan said the celebrations are likely to be relatively “modest” compared with those for the late King’s 60th anniversary in 2006, when the Sultan of Brunei, the Emperor of Japan, and Queen Elizabeth’s son Prince Andrew traveled to Bangkok for the occasion. This time, no foreign dignitaries have been invited. Who is King Vajiralongkorn? King Vajiralongkorn studied in Australia …

Eating This Fruit Could Cause You To Fail A Breathalyzer Test

A man in China has reportedly failed an on-the-spot breathalyzer test taking him over the legal alcohol limit, not because he consumed too much alcohol, but because he consumed too much durian fruit. People can be pretty imaginative when it comes to making up excuses why (honestly officer!) there was a perfectly good explanation for doing whatever it is they’ve been pulled up on. Blaming a high blood alcohol level on the stinkiest fruit in the world, however, is a new one. According to a video on the Chinese video site Pear Video, the unnamed man was pulled over by police in Rudong County in the eastern Jiangsu province on April 17 for suspected drunk driving. The man, caught on …

FDA allows sale of breast implant linked to cancer, strengthens warnings

(CNN)Despite an outcry from women to ban a particular type of breast implant associated with a rare cancer, the sale of those implants will be allowed in the United States, the Food and Drug Administration announced Thursday. BIA-ALCL is predominantly associated with a textured type of implant, rather than the smooth version. The illness is slow-growing and treatable when it’s detected early. At least 457 women in the United States have been diagnosed with the cancer, according to the FDA, and nine have died as a result. The cancer affects cells in the immune system and can be found around the breast implant. Acknowledging that international health agencies have been moving to ban the sale of textured implants, the FDA …

Don’t be fooled: Joe Biden is no friend of unions | Gabriel Winant

The former vice-president is dressing up his candidacy in a blue-collar costume. But hes never taken a political risk for workers In San Francisco theres a high-end boutique called Unionmade. There you will find expensive work jackets and overalls, lit by bare bulbs and displayed on unvarnished metal shelves. The aesthetic could not convey its message any more clearly: buy these clothes, and access a bygone era of authenticity and American craftsmanship. But its a lie the clothes on offer are largely not union-made. The unfortunate reality is that there are not many unions left in the garment industry and so the name was cultivated as a signifier of well-made and aesthetically timeless goods, explains a spokesperson. As the industrial …

Shrimp in London are pumped full of cocaine. It’s even worse than it sounds.

Listen, the world is dark and full of unexpected environmental terrors. Climate change is real, coral is being destroyed at a rate so alarming that I now care about coral, and if it weren’t for these polyamorous birds living their best lives, I sometimes feel like I might lose it in the middle of the supermarket. And don’t even get me started on the people out there who think that the world is flat and that the earth isn’t getting dangerously warmer because the eastern states “sure do get a lot of snow.” Now we’ve got to bring shrimp snorting (read: being polluted with)  cocaine into the equation of why our planet is on a really messed up trajectory towards …

Dad shares story about daughter’s scary experience at a college party with star athlete. It’s pretty great.

The NFL is by far America’s favorite sports league, so when its players are charged with a violent crime, it’s front page news. Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson, Adrian Hernandez, Greg Hardy, and most recently Tyreek Hill, have all helped the NFL earn the moniker the “National Felon League.” However, studies show that the arrest rate for NFL players is half that of men in the same age group. But, if it bleeds it leads, so when an NFL player makes a positive impact on the community, it rarely gets the attention it deserves. That’s why everyone should know the name Dre Greenlaw. What are the @49ers getting with @DreGreenlaw?“A playmaker, a guy who has played at the highest level of …
