Not only do they have to qualify, but they must do so with what most people see as physical limitations. That being said, watching them in action proves that they have absolutely zero limits. This British advertisement for the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio is proof positive of that fact.
Before you get too happy or hopeful, remember one thing: everything in this world is probably trying to kill you. People, animals, weather and accidents are just a few of the things that could end our lives prematurely. But what about food? One thing most people don’t think is trying to kill us are the foods we eat everyday. Well now it’s time to add one more thing to the list.
Here are six foods you probably eat everyday that could potentially kill you if you’re not careful. (You can thank us later.)
This delicious snack food can actually be deadly if eaten in the wild. Humans typically eat sweet almonds, as opposed to wild almonds (which taste bitter). Besides tasting bad, these wild almonds also contain a very unhealthy dose of cyanide.
The next time you’re stranded in the woods and tempted to eat the almonds you find there. Don’t do it.
Yes it’s true, every one’s favorite fall time fruit can actually kill you. Of course, apples are only dangerous if you eat a whole lot of apple seeds. When your body digests the seeds, it sort of accidentally turns them in cyanide. Eat too many, and well you get the idea.
Did you know tomatoes are members of the nightshade family? AKA the family of sorta poisonous plants? (Yep, I had no idea either.) The tomato itself is not necessarily bad for you, but stay away from its leaves. They’re full of harmful tomatine. Yuck.
Make sure you’re properly boiling your kidney beans. If not, then you might accidentally ingest a little toxin known as phytohaemagglutinin. It’s about as fun for your body as it is for you to say out loud.
Not all potatoes will kill you, but green potatoes will. Potatoes turn green if they are left out and exposed to light. First you’ll vomit profusely, then if you keep eating, you’ll have a heart attack and die.
In addition to green potatoes being dangerous, the leaves from potatoes will kill you. Believe it or not, people have actually died from drinking potato leaf tea.
Despite their deliciousness, cherries will kill you if you give them the chance. To avoid that terrible fate, just stick to eating the fruit. Don’t eat the seeds, or leaves.
Watch out for those apples as we’re heading into prime apple picking season. Walking through an orchard might seem adorable, but if you eat a fistful of apple seeds? You’re probably going to have a bad time.

Jeremy Guthrie is doing his best to make sure he sees the 18-year-old Canadian singer in concert.
And he isn’t ashamed one bit.
In fact, the pitcher even posed with a group of fellow Beliebers a year ago. Some fans are pleased with Guthrie’s music choice.
The fact that @JGuthrie46 likes the music that he does makes him even more my favorite!

Did New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene commissioner Mary Bassett really say that? Yes, yes she did.
And what does “self-isolate” mean, exactly?
Protip for Dr. Bassett: When even Piers Morgan knows you’re full of crap, it’s bad.

Injuries have been reported:

Just one day after a fatal explosion at a Louisiana chemical plant, another explosion has been reported at another chemical plant, this one in Donaldsonville, La.
Emergency officials reported another plant explosion in Ascension Parish this evening.
Five people were injured, two critically in the explosion at the CF Industries Plant in Donaldsonville according to Acadian Ambulance.
The CF Industries Plant makes phosphorous and nitrogen, according to the company’s website.

Would you believe the Baton Rouge Advocate published a story in May about how the fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas, had residents worried that something similar could happen at the CF Industries Plant in Donaldsonville? Tonight’s incident was nowhere near the scale of the West explosion, but it did claim at least one life, according to authorities.
Twitchy will update this post as details become available.
