A Florida woman was left horrified and fearing blindness when she accidentally glued her eye shut.
Katherine Gaydos from Lantana, was outside when a man went by using a leaf blower. A bit of debris blew into her eye and she asked the man to run inside her house and grab her Visine eye drops from her purse.
What he actually grabbed though, was a tube of Super Glue that Gaydos used to glue on her false nails!
Thinking he was helping her out, he squirted the strong adhesive directly into her left eye, immediately sealing it shut. Ouch! Katherine felt it immediately, she told local TV station WPBF;
"Something blew into my eye and I screamed for someone else to get eye drops out of my purse and they brought Super Glue. As soon as I felt it in my eye I felt it burn and I closed my eye and screamed 'Call 911'."

The single mum of two went to her doctor's office but could only get antibiotics because she didn't have insurance and couldn't pay for further treatment. She lived with her eye sealed shut for NINE days until her story was broadcast on the local TV station.
The surgery then called her back in and a different doctor managed to prise her eye open using lidocaine which numbs the tissue. She has to go back at a later date to get the glue scraped off her cornea.
Luckily for her, the doctor said she should get her sight back and not have permanent damage—plus the surgery hasn't made any mention of billing her for the treatment.
The newly passed "BTS Law" allows K-pop stars to defer mandatory military service.
This week South Korea's National Assembly passed a law that is sure to have BTS ARMY cheering them on.
Generally speaking, all South Korean men are required to spend at least 18 months enlisted in the military, with the final cut-off for entry at age 28. But the new legislation — informally referred to as "The BTS Law" — will allow K-pop stars who meet certain requirements to defer until the age of 30.

Every year, Spotify listeners win out over devotees to other streaming platforms when they unveil their Spotify Wrapped playlists — a data driven analysis of what the year sounded like.
And while this year's personal Spotify Wrapped summaries are still loading, Spotify just released their data for their most streamed global music and podcasts of the year.
Announced the week following the Grammy nominations, Spotify Wrapped feels like vindication for artists who were snubbed by the awards committee, like The Weeknd and Halsey.
The summary also analyzed trends of when and how people were listening to content, noting increased popularity in nostalgia-themed playlists and work-from-home-themed playlists. Spotify users were understandably playing music from home more, which even caused an uptick in streaming music from gaming consoles. Listeners also tuned obsessively into wellness podcasts like never before.
After months of on and off again speculation, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky seem to be dating.
Obviously, this is good news if it's true. Can you imagine? For the coordinating outfits alone, I need it.
There have been a ton of icky white rappers over the years, but these take the cake.
On this day in 1990, Vanilla Ice's "Under Pressure" reboot "Ice, Ice Baby" debuted at No. 1 in the UK, kickstarting a Billboard run that would soon carry over to the states and invigorate a fleeting love for Vanilla Ice and his whole...vibe.
Of course, we all know how it ends. Vanilla Ice's credibility and career unraveled as quickly as it began. "Ice Ice Baby" took on a satirical identity larger than its creator, all while Robert Van Wrinkle refused to pay royalties (or even give a shout-out) to Freddie Mercury and David Bowie despite liberally sampling the track's true creators. Ice instead tried to cultivate a hollow rap identity, one where he was a hardened former-gang member from Miami and not a middle-class teen from a Texas suburb. The chorus of the song then came under fire by a black fraternity, who accused Vanilla Ice of ripping off their fraternal chant ("ice ice baby/ too cold, too cold.")
