Doug Funnie Only Has Room In His Heart For One 'Trap Queen'

(0) Comments | Posted August 3, 2015 | 4:54 PM

Doug Funnie is back from the cartoon graveyard, and he's got a beat.

No, not from his band The Beets. And no, the beloved '90s-era cartoon character isn't here to teach you how to Dougie (though we'd love to see that remix as well).

고양이는 물리학을 이해한다....아마도(동영상)

만약 당신 고양이에게 유명한 과학자의 이름을 붙여준다면, 어느 날 갑자기 당신 고양이는 그저 귓가를 긁거나 야옹거리는 걸 멈추고 갑자기 더 깊은 지식을 향해 스크래치를 시작할지도 모른다.


예를 들면 바로 위 동영상의 고양이처럼 말이다.


유명한 천문학자 허블의 이름을 가진 이 고양이는 그저 조용히 낮잠을 즐기다가 갑자기 지식을...

Physics Is Totally This Cat's Meow

(0) Comments | Posted July 31, 2015 | 2:21 PM

If you name your cat after a celebrated scientist, don't be surprised if it suddenly spurns balls of yarn and decides to chase a deeper itch, one scratched only by the pursuit of knowledge.

For instance, this cat -- who happens to be named Hubble, presumably an ode to the celebrated astronomer -- is awfully close to discovering the secret to perpetual motion. All it needs is just bit more catnip to really get it going. Sure, it doesn't count as a closed system when there's a cat involved, just don't tell that to Hubble.

Cop Fixes Boy's Bike, Takes 'Serve And Protect' To Whole New Level

(0) Comments | Posted July 31, 2015 | 10:34 AM

Turns out the boys in blue can fix bikes, too.

At least one of them anyway. A bystander in Shelton, Connecticut, snapped a photo of an officer from the Ansonia Police Department fixing a boy's bike. It proceeded to go viral:

After Faith Taylor's picture took off online, the officer, identified as Michael Castillo, told Connecticut news station WTNH the backstory, which started as a call to break up a fight at Target.

"I said, 'Hey, are you guys fighting?' They said, 'No we’re friends,'" Castillo said. "Then I saw one of the bikes was broken, and the kid said, 'My bike is broken,' so I just got down and fixed it."

The 27-year-old officer doesn't have a Facebook account and wasn't aware someone had taken a picture of the encounter until it went viral.

"I just saw the kids, they needed some help, I helped the kids," he told ABC News.

He added he didn't expect it would generate so much attention, but he's glad it did.

"It feels great, it really does," Castillo told WTNH. "There’s so much negativity in police work everywhere. Just to get this one thing -- it’s so small, I was just helping a kid out -- but it’s big to everyone else, and I think this shows a positive outlook on police work."

책을 살 수 없던 소년은 대신 '광고 우편'을 좋아했다

솔트레이크 시티 교외에 사는 11살 소년 매튜 플로레스(Mathew Flores)에게는 평범하지 않은 점이 하나 있다. 그는 기업이나 쇼핑몰이 무차별적으로 날리는 광고 우편을 매우 좋아한다. 지난 7월 24일에는 동네를 찾아오는 우편배달부인 론 린치에게 “사람들이 버린 광고 우편을 읽게 해줄 수 있는지” 부탁하기도 했다.

당시 린치는 플로레스가 왜 이런 이상한 부탁을 하는 지...

Guy Falls Asleep With Mouth Open, Has Vivid Dream Of Twizzlers

(0) Comments | Posted July 29, 2015 | 4:58 PM

Have you heard about Micah? He can practically eat an entire pack of Twizzlers in his sleep.

Of course, given that he's asleep and everything, sometimes he needs a helping hand.

These enterprising friends took advantage of their buddy after he fell asleep with his mouth open on a car ride -- and then naturally posted the video.

We're happy this worked out for the best, especially in light of the surprising number of Twizzlers inserted in his mouth, but we'll add one note of caution: It's probably not wise to block off your buddy's air supply while he's sleeping, no matter what delicious candies you may have on...

Make Way For Ducklings, And That's An Order!

(0) Comments | Posted July 28, 2015 | 4:56 PM

 

Police in St. Andrews, Scotland, had the delightful task of escorting a mother duck and her nine ducklings across a road last Wednesday, carefully guiding the young family to safety.

Video of the incident shows officers didn't hesitate to ruffle a few motorists' feathers, stopping traffic so the ducklings could process across a bridge and down to the water below.

"It was a dramatic moment. It was interesting and a bit surreal," Yoriko Hirose, the videographer who captured the scene, told Metro. "The police did a good job. They managed to get the ducks off the road quite...
