(0) Comments | Posted September 4, 2015 | 2:37 AM

개미들이 갑자기 아이폰 주변을 둥글게 둘러싸는 기묘한 동영상이 인터넷을 휩쓸고 있다. 대체 이유가 뭔지 모두가 궁금해 죽는 중이다.


이 동영상에 대한 몇 가지 이론이 나왔다.

Young Adults Remember Their Parents' Deaths In Moving Video

(0) Comments | Posted September 3, 2015 | 2:59 PM

Watch these young adults recall their parents' deaths and feel their love and pain. Or perhaps your own.

The tears and memories flow in BuzzFeed's "When My Parent Passed Away," but they won't overwhelm you. In fact, the video may even give you that nudge you need to call your mom or dad, if you're lucky enough to have them around.

As one woman in the video says, "I always tell my friends, 'Cherish your parents. You never know when they're gonna go.'"

Amen to that.

Man Types With His Nose Faster Than Anyone Ever

(0) Comments | Posted September 3, 2015 | 11:32 AM

Imagine this guy in the secretarial pool.

Guinness World Records recently posted video of Vinod Kumar Chaudhary of New Delhi breaking the record for typing with his nose.

Yes, there is such a record. No, you probably shouldn't practice in front of your boss.

Chaudhary pecked, er, typed, the phrase "Guinness world records have challenged me to type this sentence using my nose in the fastest time" in 46.30 seconds. The previous record was more than a second slower.

To reach beak performance, Chaudhary practiced four hours a day, he told Guinness.

"Typing is my profession as well as passion, which inspired me to try something different and outstanding," Chaudhary said.

He actually set the mark in December 2014 at Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi. Guinness verified the record recently before featuring it on the Guinness World Records "Spotlight" show, posted to YouTube Aug. 26.

Here's another crazy typing record Chaudhary could pursue. Well, maybe not.

Ants Suddenly March In A Circle When An iPhone Rings

(1) Comments | Posted September 3, 2015 | 9:30 AM

Bizarre video of bustling ants suddenly marching in a circle around an iPhone when it rings has the Internet wondering what the heck is going on.

Here are some theories:

"The electromagnetic wave of an incoming call" keeps them in a circle, according to ViralVideoLab's YouTube description. Australian entomologist Nigel Andrew from the University of New England explained that the radio waves of the phone realign the ants' sense of direction because they rely on "magnetic receptors in their antennae" to orient themselves, outlets reported. 

"The vibrations are affecting the trail-following behavior of the ants," Gene Robinson, an entomology professor at the University of Illinois, theorized. "Ants do follow each other on trails and have very elaborate ‘rules of the road’ to avoid congestion,” he said, according to reports.

"My theory is that the ants were engaged in the spiraling behavior before the phone was put down," Anurag Agrawal, a professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at Cornell University, told The Huffington Post.

Tech Insider provided yet another hypothesis: The clip could be fake. "Not that ants aren't capable of being tricked into doing amazing, fascinating behaviors but something about their movement in general doesn't seem quite ant-like to me," Phil Torres, an entomologist, told the outlet.

Whatever the case, we'd love to see one of the ants answer the damn phone already. Now that would really get the Internet talking.

People Pick Awful Tattoos By Chance And Still Go Through With It In 'Tattoo Roulette'

(1) Comments | Posted September 2, 2015 | 2:21 PM

Getting a tattoo can be a monumental undertaking. It is permanent, after all.

So imagine having ink done without having any choice in the design or location.

Elite Daily's "Tattoo Roulette" features people playing Plinko, a game from "The Price is Right," to determine the cheesy tattoo they will bear -- and where.

An Elite Daily spokeswoman assured The Huffington Post that this is all on the level. Of the 12 people selected to play the game from a casting call on Craigslist and Facebook, only five backed out, she said.

Watch above to see who gets the Donald Trump hair tramp stamp ... forever.

This Marmot Has A Really Irritating Scream

(0) Comments | Posted September 2, 2015 | 10:20 AM

Listen to an adorable marmot scream on Blackcomb Mountain in British Columbia.

That sound isn't so adorable, is it? We're wondering if glass stemware could stand a chance against this critter's ear-piercing squeal. The video was posted earlier this summer by the Lone Goat Soap Company and is still screeching across the Internet.

Some outlets suggested the marmot is might be warning of intruders.

Marmots vocalize when startled or feeling threatened, according to "Marmots: Sociology Behavior and Ecology."

"Dumb and Dumber" fans might remember this as the most annoying sound in the world:

But this marmot might give Jim Carrey a run for his money.

Dodger Dreams

Food donations from friends have helped Linares stay there this long, he said in the video. He said he's played baseball since he was 8 and that the Dodgers should know he's hungry to achieve his goal of making it to the major leagues.

But For The Win did some research on Linares and found nothing to verify his background as a ballplayer.

Meanwhile, he waits and hopes.

Screen Crush has honored famed horror film director Wes Craven, who died Sunday, with a compilation of screams from his movies, which include the "Nightmare on Elm Street" and "Scream" films. The video's title, appropriately enough, is "Screams."

Marshawn Lynch Talks Skittles In Bizarre Evine Live Segment

(0) Comments | Posted September 1, 2015 | 10:02 AM

As much as Marshawn Lynch hates the media, he loves his Skittles. The Seattle Seahawks running back has been known to eat them on the sideline and is an MVP (most valuable pitchman) for the fruit-flavored candies. But he outdid himself in a segment for the Evine Live shopping channel that aired Tuesday.

Thanks to the clip, we now know how deep Lynch's Skittles love goes: "We're intimate," he told host Allison Waggoner. If a party isn't serving Skittles, "I'm gone," he says. If a potential date doesn't like Skittles, "She's sour. She's not sweet enough."

And to sell viewers on bulk orders of the treats, he'll even put on Skittles jewelry.

Even for Beast Mode in pitch mode, it's kinda weird.

Cold Play: Nela Zisser Eats 5 Pounds Of Frozen Yogurt

(0) Comments | Posted August 31, 2015 | 9:43 AM

And you think you've had brain freeze? Watch Nela Zisser of New Zealand eat 5 pounds of frozen yogurt in 9-minutes 45-seconds.

Zisser, a beauty pageant winner turned competitive eater, begins by eating a cherry on top. Then she starts shoveling.

Zisser wrote on YouTube that her goal was to finish under 10 minutes, so she was satisfied.

"My tongue is numb and my stomach is numb," she says in the video.

Well, no wonder.

Eating 5 lbs. of Frozen Yogurt

Zisser, the seventh-place women's division finisher in the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest, has earned Internet fame with timed eatings of Subway Footlongs, McDonald's Filet-O-Fish sandwiches and other popular food items.

Note that the frozen-yogurt stunt begins at the 3:06 mark in the video, after a bit of food porn that shows Zisser preparing her desserts. She sure loves her toppings, doesn't she?

The last kilogram amount shown on the scale in the vid appears to be just short of five pounds but we'll give her credit anyway.

She is one fro-lific eater.

Check out The Huffington Post's interview with Zisser in advance of her Nathan's debut:

지프는 꽤 유명한 포메라니안이다. 인스타그램의 스타라고나 할까.


그런데 지프가 그냥 귀엽기만 하다고 생각했다면, 오해다.
