Grab a tissue. Meet Layka. She was a combat dog in the military and got shot by an AK-47 four times at point blank range. After 7 grueling hours of surgery and a leg amputation, she survived. Staff Sgt. Julian McDonald went far out of his way to adopt her afterwards. Thanks to National Geographic for this heartwarming viral video.
Until this morning, I had no idea what a frog split was. Now, thanks to the lovely Kino, I have intimate knowledge of what it takes to OH MY GOD, WHAT IS SHE DOING?! That doesn’t even look right, stop it.
You may poke your eye out. Seriously, these dudes can’t even be trusted with one of the dumbest science experiments known to man? I’d love to see what they can manage to do with a little bit of gun powder .
This cat has had it up to here with everyone and their mom trying to upload vids of themselves singing “Let it Go” from Frozen. Naturally, the cat goes all Jon Taffer on the whole thing and shuts it down.
This dad has a lot of patience. (nsfw language)
Like this, apparently. The stuff of nightmares. Good theft deterrent, though?
This is actually a pretty brilliant plan. Might work better if you turn around and use the advice within moments of asking for it, but it seems that the best ‘wingman’ you can get is the girl herself? Mind blown.
Okay, so they don’t come out of your skin and this guy definitely doesn’t have Wolverine’s Adamantium skeleton, but holy Hell! This is amazing. Pretty sure he’s clinically insane and shouldn’t be using those without supervision. Somebody better keep some heavy magnets handy.
Okay, if you can’t handle watching nature play out in front of you, you may want to skip this video. But, if you want to see some animal kingdom carnage, holy balls. This lion could have a promising career in the NFL with a pick like that.
We’ve all seen some pretty terrible cover bands before, but these stick out:
5. By The Way
his clip, which features a high school band rushing through a sloppy version of the Chili Peppers’ ‘By the Way,’ is a sight to behold. The drummer can hold the beat down, the bassist actually has a little bit of a funk thing going on, the guitarist is tuned up and capable, and the frontman — well, he certainly is energetic. Perhaps he has a little too much energy as sings off key and hops around the stage, doing his best Anthony Kiedis dance moves and generally looking silly. In fairness to him, he’s singing in a foreign language, and Kiedis himself isn’t known for his pitch-perfect vocals. That still doesn’t make things right.
4. Enter Sandman
Why does it always have to be ‘Enter Sandman?’ Couldn’t some band massacre ‘Creeping Death,’ ‘For Whom the Bell Tolls?’ or ‘Master of Puppets’ — ‘Master’ would be so easy to mess up. The guitarist isn’t half bad on the intro, but when the synths (synths on a Metallica song?!) come in totally off key, it’s already beyond saving. By the time he starts singing, it’s off to never-never land, indeed.
3. Holy Diver
It takes a while for this Dio cover band to get going, but once they do … actually, they never really do get going. It takes forever for this Swedish two-piece to actually get on the stage and another eternity to tune up … and for what? To stand around, fumble uncomfortably with their instruments and attempt to play the song a handful of times, all for naught. At least the crowd seems to be laughing with them, not at them.
Let’s rank what we see on stage in terms of effectiveness, from most to least, shall we? 1. The drummer 2. The bassist. 3. The guitarist 4. The American flag 5. The singer. It’s certainly not easy playing the challenging music of this SOAD song, and this band does a halfway decent job –- until the singer comes in. On second thought, maybe the flag should rank higher.
1. We’re Not Even Sure (Run To The Hills/Walk?)
Well this is a train wreck. Where is the guitar?! At least there’s a pit. Plus for the group vocals. Big negative for forcing a bunch of innocent kids to watch it.
Bonus: Comfortably Numb
