    Traveler Films Racist Rant on Train

    A woman goes off on a shameless and incredibly racists tirade on a Sydney train.

    The incident began with a heated exchange between 55-year-old Karen Bailey and a young couple on the train, one of whom was an Asian girl, after they reportedly refused to give up their seats. Bailey then begins targeting the girl, hurling racial slurs as she mocked her features and accent. 

    She doesn't appear to be the least bit ashamed when someone tells her she's being filmed and, in fact, takes out her own camera to film the exchange herself as she continues to degrade the couple with a myriad of derogatory comments. 

    But after the video went viral, Bailey seemed to have had a change of heart, and apologized for her behavior, saying that she had a "brain snap," and that "no one deserves to be spoken to like that." 

    It was also later revealed that Bailey had originally lied about her name, telling the media that she was called Sue Wilkins.

    Bailey was arrested by Central Coast police after the incident and charged with offensive conduct. She later pled guilty, but escaped a fine in court after she was handed 12-month good behavior bond by the judge.

      Canines can be smart, but they have been known to be baffled by some human trappings in the house - such as vacuum cleaners, washing machines and even fans. And although dogs can be puzzled by these inventions, they still look hilarious as they try to make sense of them.

      Sweet Dreams Are Made of These: Adorable Golden Retriever Pups Wake Up From Nap

      Puppies need a lot of sleep - and the best option for them is to nap together with the rest of their litter, keeping each other warm just like wolves in a real pack. So it's hardly surprising they like to remain like that for hours - even if morning has broken and it's time to get up to some new shenanigans.
