#5Things: Parliamentary member mistakes sanitiser for water, a flood of "blood", and more...

It's Monday and a new week means there are a bunch of new exciting (maybe even outrageous) stories to share!

Blood flood

Your favourite trio is back and they are more than ready to kick-off the week!

We all know you can't get started without knowing what's going on in the world, so here are the top five things you need to know about right now:

Jacob Zuma and Julius Malema's Tea Party

Two of South Africa's most polarising political people spent their Friday afternoon having a tea party.

That's right, EFF leader Julius Malema wanted to meet with the former president Zuma and had sent out a tweet with this request.

Turns out the two might have put their love-hate relationship aside by spending a whole five hours together.

Up until now, the only people who are seeing this as the smallest cause of concern are the ANC in KZN. They are now hoping to set up a session with Zuma to find out more about this "tea party" and, as a result, will have a more complete understanding of why this meeting took place.

The terrible taste of regret

Many of us have probably had a momentary lapse where we grabbed the wrong drink or food and accidentally took a bite or a swig before realising the mistake we've made. Sometimes it's not that bad and you might have just swapped drinks with the person sitting next to you.

However, accidentally drinking sanitiser probably has to be the WORST, and unfortunately for a parliamentary member in Mumbai, that is exactly what happened.

While presenting the education budget, Ramesh Pawar grabbed a bottle of "water" and took a good sip before realising the error he had made. The liquid might have been as clear as water, but it definitely was not what he expected.

You can watch the full video and see his (and everyone else's) reaction below:

Introducing the world's most extreme roller coaster!

Saudi Arabia is building what it calls the world's "most extreme" roller coaster: The Falcon's Flight.

The ride will feature a 160-meter vertical cliff, illuminated tunnels, and will reach a maximum speed of 250 km/h - clearly not for the faint of heart.

The Falcon's Flight will be the flagship attraction at the Six Flags Qiddiya theme park, which is set to open its doors in a post-pandemic world.

Although it looks like a possible Marvel movie trailer, you can watch the video below to see the roller coaster in action:

This is what nightmares are made of

A surreal, blood-red river inundated the Indonesian village of Jenggot after floods hit a nearby dye factory on Saturday. 

The crimson-coloured water, which looks a lot like blood, filled the streets after heavy rains caused flooding and the water had mixed with the red-dye from the factory.

Social media feeds have been flooded (pun intended) with videos and pictures of this strange event.

'Harry Potter' fans did not expecto this!

It turns out that one of the few people in the world who has not seen every Harry Potter movie is one of the lead actors in the series!

Rupert Grint, famously known for playing the role of the beloved Ron Weasly in the HP movies, has only ever watched the first three. Although he has never said why he hasn't watched them all, he has said that he might be watching them soon and he gave the most adorable reason why. 

He has said that since he now is the father of a baby girl, he will probably be watching the HP movies with her.
