When Aptos, California resident Peter Govaars went with his daughter to examine the the damage that a two-day storm had wrought on nearby Hidden Beach, he discovered the skeleton of a digital camera. It was beaten and battered by the ocean but, amazingly, the memory card was still intact. After opening and cleaning the card with rubbing alcohol to remove the salt and sand, Govars inserted it into his computer and found 104 photographs taken in nearby Santa Cruz during a two-week period in June of 2007. The images, he concluded, had just survived a possible and remarkable four years at sea.
After days of heavy rain in China’s Anhui Province, residents of Huangshan City were treated to a “mirage” that turned their cityscape into an ethereal scene, the likes of which are normally reserved for movies and fairytales. As the post-storm mist descended on the Tunxi section of the Xin’an River, large groups gathered to marvel at buildings and landmarks that appeared to float on the river surrounded by clouds.
With Texas experiencing its worst drought in over 100 years, most parts of the Lonestar State haven’t seen rain in months. It’s so dry, in fact, that one ordinarily shy baby armadillo came right up to this family’s walkway just to get a drink from their hose. With this adorable video racking up over 80,000 views since it was posted on Friday, we have to ask: Are baby armadillos the new kittens?
Yesterday marked one of the best-named sporting events of our time, “The Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips 400 NASCAR Sprint Cut Race” at the Michigan International Speedway. The entertainment didn’t stop there: during the post-race interviews, a TV cameraman positioned behind Kyle Busch mimed slapping around the third-place finisher in his lens. You know, like when you close one of your eyes and pretend to squish the head of someone in the distance. Cameraman stuff. If only we could see it from his perspective.
If there’s one knock against Kool-Aid, it’s that it’s not fattening enough. Sure those sugars are going to turn into fat at some point, but what if you need a quicker fix? Who has time to sit around all day waiting for their metabolism to convert that excess glycogen to fatty acids? Enter deep-fried Kool-Aid, the newest oil-injected creation from the reigning king of fair food, “Chicken” Charlie Boghosian that’s a major web obsession right now.
Earlier this week, a man dropped off a section of rusty pipe to firefighters at Redding, California’s Fire Station #4. Why? There was a kitten trapped inside of it. That’s right, a real life, just-larger-than-pipe-sized cat. So were these American heroes able to squeeze him out? Yes!
Watch the nail-biting endeavor in the three-part rescue series below.
A group of about 200 concerned citizens dressed as zombies this weekend and marched through the British city of Leicester to highlight the city’s lack of preparation for an uprising of the undead. After Leicester resident Robert Ainsley learned (via a freedom of information request) that the city did not have a zombie contingency plan built into its emergency preparations, he and 26-year-old politics graduate James Dixon used Twitter and Facebook to mobilize the masses. The demonstrators walked from the famous Haymarket Memorial Clock Tower to the offices of city council in protest.
Apparently gorillas like to back that thang up just as much as humans do. When this male gorilla isn’t out lounging in his habitat at The Calgary Zoo, there’s nothing he likes more than do a couple of spins in the water room and shake what his mama gave him. Talk about the evolution of dance.
Playing the harmonica is tough, especially when you yodel into it instead of blowing. Then again, who knows? Maybe everyone else is doing it wrong. Maybe this is how a harmonica is supposed to sound. In any event, toddler Max has plenty of time to figure it out. Even if he doesn’t, he’s got a killer siren impression to fall back on. Hardly a year old and he’s already set for life. Check out Max in action below:
When friends Joe and Larry got stuck at the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport overnight, they embraced their confinement like two kids in an empty candy store. Once the airport cleared out for evening, they were off to the wheelchair races. They also hit the escalators, the kitchen, the shoe shine chair and the airport bar, filming the whole adventure in HD for the internet to see. Check it out below:
This cat rarely drinks water but when he does, it’s always Perrier. And don’t even think for a minute about serving it to him in some sort of low-rent bowl. What do you take him for? A stray?
No, Perrier Cat is dignified. He has standards. When you pour him a Perrier, it goes in a glass just wider than his head. That way he’s completely enveloped by its mineral scent every time he takes a sip. Taste is mostly smell. How many times does Perrier Cat have to explain that to you?
