Just days after it was officially opened, base jumpers have plunged off the 828m tall Burj Khalifa tower.

Daredevils Nasr Al Niyadi and Omar Al Hegelan were given special permission to jump from the giant Dubai building.

The pair - members of the Emirates Aviation Society who have completed thousands of base jumps between them - reached speeds of 136mph as they hurtled towards the ground.

Setting the world record for the highest jump from a man-made structure, they free-fell for ten seconds before pulling their parachutes.

The entire descent took just one and half minutes… though we think we would rather take the lift.

A irate diner has trashed a McDonald's, causing thousands of pounds worth of damage… because she didn't like her burger.

The woman had ordered and eaten her burger at a Kansas City McDonald's, before storming up to the till and demanding her money back.

For several minutes she shouted at staff, claiming that the burger had not been made correctly, before walking off.

But five minutes later she returned carrying a large bucket of water which she threw over the counter.

She then hurled 'wet floor' signs at staff and pushed computerised tills off the countertop - it was clearly not a happy meal.
