Have you ever dropped your phone and broken the screen? Because I haven’t. Oh, I’ve dropped my phone before but it’s never broken.* It seems like some people are cursed though, and break their phone every other week. You’ve seen these people, the ones whose screen looks like it was stomped on by a pissed off hippo. Anyway phone droppers, your worries are over. An enterprising young engineering student has invented the “Mobile Airbag” that deploys whenever you drop your phone. Genius really. Check it out.

*I once dropped my phone in the urinal at a restaurant. Awkward.

I have a few observations. First off, stellar camera work here. Beautiful foreshadowing with the closeup of the gator. Secondly, who ziplines over a gator pit? Thirdly, WHO ZIPLINES OVER A GATOR PIT WHILE HOLDING A 3-YEAR OLD KID? Fourthly, I guarantee this was a case of a spoiled kid who demanded to go ziplining over gators and mommy and daddy allowed it because the kid runs the house. Fifthly, people are dumb.

Note: Sixthly, I’m awesome at making up words.

Some excellent choices here. My personal favorites? Clyde “The Glide” Drexler in 1984, Charles Barkley in 1988, and Shawn Kemp in 1992. Who ya got?

Trust me, there’s some incredible stuff on here. You can thank me later.

The Karakoram Highway extends from Pakistan to China and is a sight to behold. It’s the highest paved international road in the world. 810 Pakistani and 82 Chinese workers lost their lives in landslides and falls while building the highway. It has a total length of approximately 800-miles. It was started in 1959 and was completed 27-years later, in 1986. On a related note, I don’t think I’d be entirely comfortable driving on it. Chills, man.

Stellar soundtrack. Check out some photos. Click and scroll, kids.

I swear I didn’t know China and Pakistan shared a border, but here ya go.

Let me get this straight. Man and woman attempt a burglary. Man attempts escape out the back. Man fails. Man gets cornered and considers throwing delicious fruit snacks at the po-po. Man gets taken down and shirt ripped off. Man gets tazed. Man recovers and makes an unsuccessful run for it. Man is arrested. Meanwhile, woman attempts escape out the back. Woman is unsuccessful. Woman attempts daring escape through the ceiling. Woman falls through ceiling. Woman is arrested.

Nice job, burglars.

What moves. Totally impressed.

A thespian for our generation.

Note: Bonus Cage at the bottom.

That gorilla looking at the sky really got to me.

Nature, man.

The NBA had their goofy awards show last night and Charles Barkley was recognizing Bill Russell for some reason, blah-blah-blah. Anyhoo, this was Bill’s reaction. Well played, Bill. Well played.

Here’s a pretty amazing video about Orcas. Check out these facts:

1. Orcas are not actually whales, but dolphins.

2. There are no recorded cases of Orcas killing humans in the wild, only in captivity.

3. Orcas take turns eating fish through a process called “Carousel Feeding.” Fascinating stuff.

4. Think you’re safe on land, Mr. Seal? Think again. You’ll see why in the video.

5. Orcas work in teams to create waves that knock seals off of ice flows. Diabolical, man.

6. Orcas commonly drown larger whales by blocking their blow holes and/or holding them underwater.

7. Great White Sharks have one natural predator – The Orca.

Just an insanely complex system. Nature, man.


Great cover of a great Byrds song, originally written by Bob Dylan.

Seriously, I had no idea there were so many cool offshoots from the anteater family. Sweet beans, man. Check it out.

If you’re one of those blind, cynical bastards who can’t see that these elephants are saluting the humans that saved their baby you can go straight to hell. Clearly they’re giving thanks to the people who saved that little elephant. If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a thousand times – years from now we’re going to finally understand the intelligence of animals and we’re going to shake our head at how we once treated them. Animals, man. God bless ’em.

So Russia is celebrating the start of the World Cup and everyone is all giddy and whatnot. As part of the festivities some Russian bros brought their bear along for the fun, and here he is playing a vuvuzela and giving the “up yours” forearm jerk sign to innocent passerby. On a related note, that bear is going to maul the living hell out of those dudes soon.

Note: Whilst researching the “up yours” sign, I found that it is indeed called the “forearm jerk” overseas. I also found out that there are about 20 innocent gestures we make here in the USA that have totally different meanings outside our country. Stay tuned for the upcoming riveting blog.

Note 2: When the mauling commences those assheads will totally deserve it.

You know this whale is just messing around with these people, right? Probably just said to his whale buddies, “Watch this. I’m going to splash the hell out of these tourists. Hold my plankton.” Whales, man.

Note: One of the things whales eat is plankton. I looked it up. They also eat crabs and squids and stuff but plankton seemed funnier. 

Love this video. One minute this dude is showing off for the crowd, slapping the gator, stepping on its snout, acting all badass, the next minute the gator is head-butting him into oblivion. On a related note, I’m pretty sure that guy’s sunglasses landed in the next county over. Good stuff.

Disrespectful idiots on motorcycles and bicycles deserve what they get. Satisfying video.

CCTV: A fearless dog has been caught on camera fighting off a leopard that tried to snatch its puppy from outside a building in India. The daring rescue was captured on CCTV from an Indian Forest Service office in the northern state of Himachal Pradesh. Footage shows the puppy sitting on a porch outside the office before the big cat pounces, trying to grab its prey and run. However, the mother reacts quickly to the situation, attacking the leopard and forcing it to retreat back into the forest.

Seriously, dogs are the best, right? That mother dog went after a killing machine 3-times her size and made of razor sharp claws and teeth without blinking an eye. Not today, leopard boy. Not today.

PS- Man, bad day for cats, huh? Leopard has to go back to the forest and tell his buddies a mother dog kicked his ass. That’s just embarrassing.

Apocalypse now in Russellville, Kentucky. Freaky, man.

On a related note, she proceeded to receive 17 marriage proposals within the next 5-minutes.

Sweet Jesus. Nice job crabs.

So here’s a zookeeper in the Ukraine breaking up a lion fight with a slipper, because of course he is. I will post information regarding the inevitable mauling of this zookeeper in a future blog. Stay tuned.

Future photo when magic slipper quits working.
