They say metalheads just don’t know how to quit. Two elderly gentlemen proved that when they disappeared from a German assisted living facility. The aging metal fans were discovered at the 2018 Wacken Open Air in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. Interestingly, the two appeared to be having so much fun that they initially refused to leave the biggest heavy metal festival in the world.

The unidentified men reportedly went missing from the nursing home on Friday, August 3. The staff were understandably worried for the pair and immediately contacted the police. However, nobody expected the men to turn up where they did. These senior citizens turned out to be metalheads who wanted to sneak out and attend the Wacken Open Air.

It is unclear how the elderly metalheads managed to travel all the way to the festival grounds. However, they evidently weren’t eager to leave when the police found them at 3:00 AM on Saturday morning. The police had to escort the men back to the nursing home.

Police spokeswoman Merle Neufeld revealed that although the elderly gents appeared ‘disoriented and dazed,” it wasn’t because of the music at Wacken Open Air.

“They obviously liked the metal festival,” Neufeld said. “The care home quickly organized a return transport after police picked them up.”

Arch Enemy was one of the highly awaited performers during the four-day festival

The 2018 Wacken Open Air was headlined by Danzig, Judas Priest, and Hatebreed. Other performers included Gojira, In Flames, Children of Bodom, Arch Enemy, and Cannibal Corpse. It was not confirmed which band was the reason why the aging metalheads escaped the nursing home.

The elderly gentlemen certainly had perfect timing. The festival grounds at Wacken Open Air are usually filled with mud due to rain. However, things were rather dry this year and it was somehow safe for the aging metalheads to walk around.

This year’s festival was reportedly sold out. Tickets for next year are already being pre-sold. It remains to be seen if the festival’s oldest fans will return in 2019.

Dog owners will always tell you that their pet is a good boy or girl. But can your pooch run errands for various shop owners throughout the day? An adorable golden retriever has been a delivery dog of sorts for several stores in her neighborhood. This very good girl is paid by her clients with a bowl of milk.

Being a courier for a number of stores should be confusing for the average pup. However, Thockssun is quick to follow instructions, whether her mistress asks her to go to a clothes shop or a chicken store. She also refuses to leave the establishment without being paid the right amount.

Most people view orcas as intelligent creatures capable of learning tricks and impressing children at SeaWorld. After all, most of us grew up watching a friendly killer whale bond with a young boy in the 1993 film Free Willy. However, some orcas can prove to be completely rude toward other marine life, as one unfortunate stingray has discovered.

Stingrays are usually peaceful animals that only attack when provoked. The most famous casualty of a stingray attack is Steve Irwin who was pierced in the heart by a confused stingray's barb. Not surprisingly, some believe the rude orca was simply trying to get back at the random ray for Irwin's death.

The stingray is minding its business before the orcas arrive.
