Is that real? Do dogs fly now? I don't want to be punked again.

LIFEHACKS! YOUR LIFE JUST GOT HACKED! But seriously, a few of these are cool.

What the Actual is this?

ICYMI: Driving to the 7-Eleven in Egypt.

I always enjoy this viral marketing stunt for the Carrie remake. Never saw the movie, but the viral marketing I give four stars! Highest rating!

A little outdoor painting.

Is this real? I don't want to be Lamonted again.

Saving a tiny baby dolphin from a stray net.

Doggie being adopted from a shelter.

Birds want to race a speedboat.



Oh he did NOT!

Cellphone alert signals: An Interpretive Dance Demonstration:

So, little brag, I understood most of that. He said "Suoniamo mi amici, vi faccio ascoltare una bellisima tarantella, tu suona una tarantella? Ma va bene?" I think. Which is "Let's sing, my friends, I'm going to play (literally: I'm going to make you listen to) a very beautiful tarantella, [to bird] you sing a tarantella, okay is that good?" Later I think he says Dai, Roma. "Dai" means "go!" or "do it." I think Roma might be the name of the bird.

Weirdest thing, I was watching Sherlock last night, and they used the word "ta" several times. I've never heard this before, but apparently it's a common British interjection. It means "thank you" or "thanks."

Like when Watson paid for a map, the guy said "Ta" and then when he gave Watson his change Watson said "Ta" back to him.

I watch a lot of British stuff and I've never, ever heard this. I've even seen this Sherlock four times and never noticed it.
