It's a bird, it's a plane ... it's a Superman action figure taped to a drone flying over London's Victoria Park.

Enjoy the scenery, Man of Steel, er plastic.

Barry Craig wrote on YouTube that he attached the superhero to his Phantom 3 drone with duct tape.

Up, up and away!

Shark Attacks Kids In The House, And It's The Cutest Thing Ever

(0) Comments | Posted August 28, 2015 | 11:31 AM

Even "Jaws" director Steven Spielberg couldn't have imagined this scene: Two innocent children are minding their own business in the living room when a shark attacks.

It's another viral entry in the Action Movie Kid series, in which DreamWorks animator Daniel Hashimoto puts his son James (here with his sister, Sophia) in all kinds of cinematic adventures.

Hey, James, you're gonna need a bigger couch.

Snoop Dogg, the reefer-smoking E. Buzz Miller of our generation, returned with a "Plizzanet Earth" episode on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Thursday. This time the not-so-noted wildlife maven observed tree frogs in their natural habitat apparently doing what comes naturally. And rudely.

"Hit it and run," Snoop comments. "Cold-blooded."

Prankster's Robot Driver Freaks Out Drive-Thru Workers

(0) Comments | Posted August 27, 2015 | 3:06 PM

It's hard enough sometimes to handle humans at the drive-thru.

But these fast-food workers have way more to deal with -- a robot in the driver's seat.

Watch a prankster's tricked-out cyborg mannequin scare and amuse these burger slingers.

YouTuber MagicofRahat has done it before, and, given the views piling up on the sequel, the joke hasn't gotten old yet.

Usain Bolt Easily Wins 200 Meters At World Championships

(0) Comments | Posted August 27, 2015 | 10:41 AM

It wasn't even close this time. Usain Bolt of Jamaica overpowered American rival Justin Gatlin to win the 200 meters Thursday at the track and field World Championships in Beijing.

The race was tight between the two until the straightaway, when Bolt pulled away to clock an eased-up 19.55 seconds to Gatlin's 19.74, numerous outlets reported. Anaso Jobodwana of South Africa took the bronze in 19.87.

Bolt had defeated Gatlin by just a hundredth of a second in the 100 meters on Sunday. Bolt is the 2008 and 2012 Olympic champion in both the 100 and 200 meters; Gatlin is the 2004 Olympic champion in the 100.

Unlike Sunday's race, this time, there was no contest.

He had a much tougher opponent in an out-of-control Segway afterward.

Comedian Shreds Nick Saban In Mock Reading To Schoolkids

(0) Comments | Posted August 26, 2015 | 2:09 PM

Alabama football coach Nick Saban has issues with a new unauthorized biography about him. Comedy Central's Daniel Tosh seems to have issues with Saban.

Perfect.

In a sketch on "Tosh.0" Tuesday, Tosh read excerpts of the book to a bunch of little kids while providing his own colorful commentary. Tosh covered Saban's time as the Miami Dolphins' head coach, the role his wife played in his leaving the job for Alabama and, of course, Saban's stiff denial that he was ever interested in Alabama.

The comedian urged the children to join in on the mocking and also riffed on Tuscaloosa and the state of Alabama.

So, it's safe to say he won't be welcomed into the Crimson Tide family anytime soon.

Here's Every Teacher You Wish You Never Had

Perhaps you've had one of these teachers: The idealistic one who didn't want to use books. The obnoxious one who answered every question with a question.

In its back-to-school viral sketch, "Every Teacher Ever," comedy team Smosh lampoons a few other would-be mentors you might have endured in school. Poor you.

And we wonder why some of our schools are failing.

'세계에서 가장 큰 심장'을 보라(동영상)

대왕고래(흰긴수염고래)는 마음이 넓다.


대왕고래는 지구 상에 존재하는 가장 큰 동물이다. 그리고, 마음도 가장 크다.


그러나 우리가 대왕고래의 심장을 볼 기회는 거의 없다. 다행히도 BBC에서 방영하는 새로운 시리즈 '빅 블루 라이브(Big Blue Live)'에서 보존된 대왕고래의 심장을 공개한다.

Take A Rare Look At 'World's Biggest Heart'

(0) Comments | Posted August 25, 2015 | 2:03 PM

The blue whale has a lot of heart.

Thought to be the biggest animal to ever inhabit the Earth, the creature would presumably have an impressive ticker, too.

But this has been a guessing game because preserved blue whale hearts are rare, according to a new series called "Big Blue Live," airing on PBS in the U.S. and BBC in the U.K.

In a teaser posted to YouTube, a technician from The Royal Ontario Museum shows off what is believed to be one of the few blue whale hearts ever preserved. It weighs nearly 400 pounds and its dimensions are 5 feet by 4 feet by 4 feet. It's "the world's biggest heart," according to the BBC.

The museum got the sample from a dead 76-foot blue whale that washed ashore in Newfoundland after it got trapped in ice, the BBC reported. 

The find has verified that some of science's best guesses about the blue whale haven't been so exact.

"I was expecting something the size of a car, but found a heart more like the size of maybe a small golf cart or circus bumper car for two," Jacqueline Miller, a mammalogy technician at the museum, told the BBC. 

National Geographic's website has this to say about blue whales: "Their tongues alone can weigh as much as an elephant. Their hearts, as much as an automobile."

Time to update.

Supercut Counts Batman's Kills For You

Batman has always seemed to be somewhat of a Grim Reaper in his live-action movies, but we never knew how true that was until now.

Mr Sunday Movies' "Batman Kill Count" supercut tallies up the bodies, showing the Dark Knight at his deadliest. 

Yep, the superhero has bagged a lot of villains. No joke(r).

Funny Or Die Reveals The Terrible Truth Behind 'Anchor Babies'

(0) Comments | Posted August 25, 2015 | 8:42 AM

The controversy over so-called "anchor babies," children born to undocumented immigrants in the United States, isn't quieting down as long as Donald Trump is in the running for president.

So Funny Or Die added fuel to the fire with its own take on Trump's belief that the little ones aren't American citizens.

If you already thought the Republican candidate's ideas about immigration reform were silly, wait till you watch this video.

Watch Jewish Moms Try To Win Bachelorette's Heart For Their Sons

(0) Comments | Posted August 24, 2015 | 11:41 AM

It's kind of like "The Dating Game," but this BuzzFeed version has a twist: Instead of bachelors answering questions from a bachelorette to win a date with her, the bachelors' Jewish mothers play the game for them! (Like it would be the first time a Jewish mom, or any mom for that matter, got a little too involved.) 

"Date My Son! Jewish Mom Edition" pits three moms of the faith against each other to capture the heart of Lauren from Connecticut -- for their sons, of course.

BuzzFeed's Ricky Sans assures viewers that it's all real. You think fiction could produce nuggets like, "I really enjoyed breastfeeding, and he did too"?

Oy vey.

Sans told HuffPost he "wanted to share the experience of having a Jewish mother with the world."

The mothers are adorable, but we hope they stay out of their boys' JDate accounts.
