Check out this scientist who wanted to get up close and personal with a Polar Bear, albeit from the comfort of his Arctic Buggy thingy. And I’m sorry but I’m always rooting for the animals when I see this stuff. This bro is in the Polar Bear’s natural habitat, and that bear is hungry. Am I the only one who was hoping the bear would bust that glass and have himself a tasty snack? That’s what I thought.

This baby was invented by a Frenchman named Franky Zupata and it is outstanding. Man, if I had one of these “personal flight systems” I’d be flying all over town like a boss. I’d put Sparky in one of those doggy backpacks and we’d be off. Be sure and check out all three videos. Wild stuff.

PS- Actually I’m 90% sure if somebody flew one of these contraptions where I live some redneck would think it was an alien and blast it out of the sky.

 

It’s all fun and games until the shooting starts, amirite? Grim Reapers indeed. These guys are from the Royal Air Force. Filmed in Wales.

Get it, little dude. Get it.

I’ve written about octopuses before because they’re fascinating as hell. Check out the blog Someday, Octopuses Are Going To Rule The World for some cool octopus facts. Anyway, this is a video I first ran a few years ago and it is absolutely astounding. I can’t watch it enough.

Slingshot leaped 35′-3″. The world record for humans is 29′-4 1/4″. Good boy Slingshot. Good boy.

Listen, there are fake badasses and there are actual badasses. This guy? Bona fide badass. Anyone who jumps from a speeding boat onto a speeding submarine, bangs on the hatch and arrests the bad guys qualifies. End of argument. And what about these drug smugglers? I read that the video shows a homemade submarine. How cray would you have to be to get in a submarine that was made in somebody’s garage? Somebody on drugs I guess? That’s nuts, man.

What a terrible person. Grayson Allen was enabled, defended and babied at Duke by Coach K and is now pulling this garbage in the NBA. As Dan Dakich says in the video, it’s one thing if you’re a hard-nosed guy like Draymond Green and are out there mixing it up with people, but it’s another if you’re soft and can’t even handle a simple backscreen without retaliating like a spoiled punk. Get this guy out of here, man.

First, watch the video. My comments follow.

Wait. WHAT? No way! Seriously, yes, ladies and gentlemen, sharks live in the ocean. In other shocking news there are alligators in swamps, snakes under rocks and birds in the sky. Good Lord. On a related note I know a guy in the Outer Banks who owns a bi-plane and gives tourists aerial tours. He used to take me up every summer above the beaches and point out all the sharks between the swimmers and the beach. This is not uncommon. They’re nearby a lot but they rarely bite anyone. Anyway, dumb report.

Check it out, man. A big ass shark goes after a good boy but didn’t count on the pup’s homeboys putting on the bum rush and beating the hell out of him. At last report that shark was in hiding, embarrassed by the ass-whipping and afraid to show his shark face among his shark friends.

PS- On a related note, dogs, man. You come at one you come at them all. Badass.

Yeah, he’s dead.

I love these guys. “Do I look like a cold cheeser to you?”

Because what’s more heroic than saving a pizza? I mean really? In the first video below you’ll see a man perform an amazing, dare I say death-defying, act of bravery as he rescues a pepperoni and cheese pie. Below that you’ll witness a Super Dad grab a flying umbrella that was sure to impale anyone who happened to be nearby. Well done, heroes. Well done indeed.

Check out that Dik-Dik, man. Adorable. This little dude lives in the bushlands of eastern and southern Africa. They’re tiny and stand about 12–15 inches at the shoulder, are 19–27 inches long, weigh 6.6–13.2 pounds and can live for up to 10-years. They can also scurry at nearly 30 mph, which is pretty damn speedy. Dik-Diks are named for the alarm calls of the females. In addition to the females’ alarm call, both the male and female make a shrill, whistling sound. These calls alert other Dik-Diks to predators. Check out the videos below to see and hear some real honest-to-goodness Dik-Diks. Anywho, Dik-Dik.

Appearances can be deceiving and all that, amirite? When you first see the dude on the right’s giant arms you’re thinking uh-oh, bad news for the fat bearded guy with the arms 1/3 as big. Not so fast my friend. Turns out those biceps in the black schmedium are full of Russian pudding and that neck is made of balsa wood. Bro went down like a bag of hammers. Russian slap fighters, man. They’re cray.

PS- Honestly, can my man take a punch or can my man take a punch? Guess that’s what happens when you’ve been pounding vodka since kindergarten.

I don’t think I missed an episode of Soul Train or Midnight Special. Watch these dancers groove to Love Train by my buddies the O’ Jays. On a related note, Don Cornelius was the coolest cat around back then.

Everyone knows how I feel about this crap. At graduation don’t act like a fool, don’t make it about you, don’t let your family whoop and holler and act like you’re the first member of the family to get a diploma, just behave with dignity and respect. It’s not that hard. Still, we get jackasses like this guy. Hopefully he’s dead or at least paralyzed. That would be super.

Did this crazed fan think a little cheap shot love tap to the back would bother The Terminator? Please. Dude was Conan the Destroyer for God’s sake. The Austrian Oak. Arnold popped right back up like it was nuthin’. Blindside the Governator all you want, he ain’t stayin’ down for long. Nice try, South African Wussboy. Nice try.

So there was a big hubbub regarding Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers and his appearance on Game of Thrones, which incidentally I haven’t seen yet. Hey, give me time. I’ll get around to it. Anyway, here is said scene. Don’t blink or you’ll miss it.

Yep. You’ll have to trust me on this one but that’s Aaron Rodgers. What a thespian.

Preach it Bill Nye the Science Guy.

AOL- Footage of a dutiful beluga whale returning an expensive gadget to its rightful human owner is making waves online.

Strangely enough, iPhone owner Ina Mansika and her friends were actually searching for the specific whale, known as Angel — which attained celebrity status weeks ago as a suspected Russian navy spy when it turned up in open waters around Hammerfest, Norway, wearing a harness — when the encounter occurred.

Angel hasn’t been behaving like a typical Beluga as she’s been letting people scratch her nose and chin and generally behaving like she’s having s great time.

Mansika told AOL that she and her pals laid down on a dock for a better chance to see the infamous Beluga and “hopefully get the chance to pat it” when her phone slipped out of her jacket pocket and into the ocean.

Seconds later, the considerate sea creature dove down and appeared at the surface of the water with the gadget in its mouth, to the shock of onlookers.

Check out Angel. First she defects from the damn communists and now she’s returning her fan’s cellphones, all the while with a smile on her face. If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a million times – in 100-years we’ll know stuff about the intelligence of animals that would astonish us if we knew it today. Amazing. Animals, man.

The good news is that Columbus Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky has a spectacular condo in downtown C-Bus. The bad news is that it’s for sale, possibly meaning he’s signing elsewhere this summer.  Check it out, man. It can be yours for a cool 2.9 million.

Check out that Meat-Eating Harp Sponge, man. Dude looks more like a candelabra to me but whatevs. This guy will snare and slowly digest a passing crustacean before they know it. This bizarre creature had never been observed by human eyes before 2000, when a team from the Monterey Bay Research  Aquarium Institute in California took a remotely operated submersible into 2-mile deep waters off the central California coast (video below). Wild looking creature, man. Anywho, Meat-Eating Harp Sponge.

Nothing to see here. I’m just a harmless plant. Move along.

Here’s why.

Just spectacular.
