The Love Train is Coming

The public transportation system in Prague wants to take riders on a new kind of journey. The metro system plans to introduce a "love train", as it's been called. Each train would have a designated car for single people only.

If laughter really is the best medicine, Jesse James should make a full recovery in no time.

On Tuesday, Sandra Bullock's ex-husband accidentally cut off the tip of his pinky finger while working in his Austin, Texas, shop. The 44-year-old motorcycle guru Instagrammed some very graphic pictures of the gruesome injury and even joked about his damaged digit.

"OOOpps, Bad day at the office," James captioned the first bloody shot. "Headed 2 Surgery in a few #PayUpSucker @ University Medical Center."

He then added a particularly graphic, do-not-click-if-you-have-a-weak-stomach pic of his severed fingertip detached from his pinky nub, writing, "Doesn't look like this little dude's gonna make it, Nice know'n you little buddy."

And as James was "Heading 2 surgery," he posted a picture from his hospital bed. Looking none too frightened, he showed off his injury once more and managed to self-promote, writing, "#jessejames #westcoastchoppers #StillMetal."

Big thumbs up to James for keeping a positive attitude about it all.
