If you didn’t already know that slow-motion effects make everything look way cooler, direct your attention to this mesmerizing video in which everyday stuff like water and metal vibrate at 1,000 frames per second (compare that to typical TV and movie shots, which are typically 24, 25 and 30 FPS).
The video was produced by Propadata Films for Fluke Corporation, a Washington-based manufacturer of electronic test equipment, and they’ve promised to release a making-of video — look for that on Fluke’s YouTube page in the near future.
We don’t know what it is exactly, but Australia has been having its fair share of great news bloopers recently. This video of a streaker running behind a 9News weatherman as he reports on the bitter cold temperatures in the mountain town of Katoomba (about 60 miles west of Sydney) is no exception. Be sure to pay close attention though: It’s a quick streak and if you blink, you might miss it. In fact, given how cold it is, you might still miss “it” if he were standing there, stark naked, right in front of you. There’s also a part of us that wonders if most Australians would even bat an eye at this sort of thing because if you’ve ever seen one of those “World’s Funniest Commercial” specials, all the naked ones are from Australia.
Counting sheep is a relaxing way to fall asleep, unless you’re Ci the border collie, in which case it would most likely lead to frightening night terrors. Ci may technically be a sheepdog, but he’s also afraid of sheep, a fear that dates all the way back to puppyhood. According to his 54-year-old owner Jane Lippington, the sheep herding instinct is definitely present in Ci, but instinct can only take him so far.
Abandoned as a puppy when his owners fled their foreclosed-upon Nebraska home, Naki’o lost all four of his paws to severe frostbite after stepping into a freezing puddle in the home’s abandoned basement. He was rescued, but forced to crawl on his belly to get around. Happily, new owner and veterinary technician Christie Tomlinson successfully organized a fundraiser to have Naki’o’s two back legs fitted with OrthoPets prosthetics. When Naki’o enthusiastically took to his new hind-legs like they were the real deal, OrthoPets founder Martin Kaufmann decided to complete the set free of charge, making Naki’o is the first dog to ever be fitted with four prosthetic limbs.
Margaret lives in Germany and Evan lives in Texas. They’re both in college, which means transcontinental trips are not generally in the cards. Lucky for the young couple, Margaret’s parents decided to fly Evan in as a birthday surprise. In this heartwarming video, which was viewed more than 70,000 times on the first day it was uploaded , Margaret spots Evan at the airport instead of the family friend she was expecting. For the family friend’s sake, we’ll assume that he or she would have been greeted with an equal amount of tears of joy.
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.
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:
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.
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 12-year-old Bornean orangutan named Jorong became a viral sensation this week when video surfaced of him rescuing a seemingly injured moorhen chick from drowning in a pond inside his enclosure. The four-minute long, one-ape, one-leaf rescue effort took place at the Dublin Zoo in Ireland sometime before 2008 when Jorong was moved to a zoo in Western England as part of an international breeding program.
Chasing a dangling string is so last year. This adorable kitten opts for pink plastic hamster ball over the usual cat toy fare and somehow manages to submerge his entire body in the thing. Good thing the hamster wasn’t in there before he got in — that would have been one wild ride. Check out the video below:
