While its true that laser beams have yet to become the bad guy-zapping weapons we were promised by science fiction, the laser does have many modern day uses.
In this video, for example, we find that a laser pointer can be used to perplex and fascinate a cockatoo. Kiwi never is able to capture the little red dot with his beak or his claw, but it’s not for lack of trying.
In the upcoming zombie apocalypse movie ‘World War Z,’ Brad Pitt’s character tries to save earth from the brain eaters. On the set of the film, Pitt played hero in a more modest, but also more signficant way.
As this photogenic kitty ages, it will likely develop a more advanced repertoire of viral video moves. But with youth on its side, all the little furball needs to do to keep us entertained is a bit of morning stretching.
When police pulled over Arthur Lee Thompson, he immediately denied doing anything wrong. But he sure was about to. The 38-year-old Summerville, South Carolina man begin to fight with the officer, and in the confusion, Thompson managed to jump into the cop’s unoccupied cruiser, and take it on a terrifying 100 mph-plus joyride right down the middle of a busy two-lane road.
And the whole incident? Captured on a security camera mounted in the dashboard.
In the most stunning piece of planetary news since Pluto’s sad demotion, astronomers have found a star-orbiting land mass that is so dense its carbon is crystalline — which means it’s basically a planet made out of diamonds.
As Hurricane Irene nears the East coast, there’s been talk of evacuating below-sea-level areas from Florida all the way to New England. If you’ve got a fear of flooding, it’ll only be bolstered by this horrifying photo out of water-logged Puerto Rico. In the shot taken from a car, a shark can be clearly seen swimming down the highway, like something out of a terrible Samuel L. Jackson movie.
In a final act of loyalty, Hawkeye, the dog of slain Navy SEAL U.S. Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Jon T. Tumilson walked up to his fallen master’s casket during the funeral in Rockford, Iowa, and then laid mournfully down beside the body for the rest of the proceedings.
Cars are far less likely to explode in real life than they are in the movies. But when they do, you certainly don’t want your face anywhere close to the dramatic combustion.
The firefighter in this video had no choice on the matter, as he was trying to douse an already flaming car when it exploded right under his chin. Yet through some combination of testicular fortitude and confidence in his flame-retardant suit, the smoke eater doesn’t even flinch when the car blows up. Check out the amazing reaction below.
The 5.8 earthquake that struck yesterday gave folks all over the middle part of the East Coast something to breathlessly discuss. Yet, no one seems to have been seriously injured in the shake. In other words, BEST EARTHQUAKE EVER!
In Chantilly, Virginia, which is not too far from the quake’s epicenter, an auto shop was shooting a commercial when the ground went wobbly. Here is the footage from the shoot, which pretty much sums up the essence of the East Coast earthquake — a brief rush of fear followed by the baffling realization that you just experienced an earthquake.
