The Herald Sun reports that two Qantas Airline passengers threw a fit because their flight didn't have any extra-large pajamas for them to wear during the journey from Los Angeles to Melbourne. The Australian couple was reportedly offered business-class pajamas, but that didn't placate them—and they opted to leave the plane instead, causing a delay.

Ever feel like the border official is a bit robotic? Well, at a boarder checkpoint in Nogales, Arizona, the agent asking you questions will be a machine—nicknamed Elvis.

Airbnb is putting the homeowners up in a fancy hotel and having their apartment professionally cleaned.
