San Francisco Zoo Offering Heartbroken Patrons a Chance to Gift Cockroaches to Their Exes for Valentine's Day

Feeling the sting of rejection? Itching to get even with an ex? The San Francisco Zoo is offering the burned and spurned masses the chance to "adopt" a hissing cockroach or giant scorpion in honor of their special ex-someone for Valentine's Day.
The zoo is highlighting two of its less-desirable inhabitants through the adopt-an-animal program that is usually used to raise money for the care of more cuddly or attractive creatures, such as penguins, lions and pandas.
The Valentine's special compares the creepy characteristics of Madagascar hissing cockroaches and the giant hairy scorpions to the ways of heart-breaking mammals with two legs.

A San Francisco Bay Area TV station has apologized after reporting bogus names of the four pilots aboard Asiana Airlines flight 214 that were a play on Asian names.
KTVU-TV co-anchor Tori Campbell read the racially offensive names on the air Friday. The report was accompanied by a graphic with the phony names listed alongside a photo of the burned out plane.
After a break, Campbell apologized for the error. She said a National Transportation Safety Board official confirmed the names to the station.
Video of the report spread across the Internet Friday.

Emergency calls from people aboard a plane that crashed at San Francisco International Airport portray a scene of chaos, with passengers begging for help and saying ambulances weren't coming fast enough.
The California Highway Patrol released the 911 calls late Wednesday.
One caller tells a 911 dispatcher: "There are no ambulances here. We have been on the ground 20 minutes."
Another tells a dispatcher there's a woman on the runway with severe burns to her head. The caller says, "She will probably die soon if we don't get help."

She's calling the shots!
As anticipation builds for her Super Bowl XLVII halftime show on Sunday, Beyoncé has posted another photo of herself on her Tumblr – this time as a sexy NFL referee.
Sort of. She also seems to be running the ball ... in stiletto, thigh-high leather boots.
While the the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers take a breather from their game, it's safe to say that all eyes will be on Beyoncé after a controversy erupted over her possibly lip-synching the National Anthem at the presidential Inauguration.
