In the world of big wave surfing, there’s Garrett McNamara and then there’s everyone else. Not content to simply surf by on big waves, McNamara recently set a world record for surfing the biggest: a 90 foot monster off the coast of Nazaré in Portugal. That’s taller than an eight story building!
How many firefighters does it take to get a moose out of a pool? No punchline here — the answer is nine.
After vaulting over a fence and falling through the pool cover on the night of October 7, a full-grown moose found himself stranded in a backyard swimming pool in Manchester, NH. Local firefighters staged an emergency rescue, catching the whole endeavor on camera.
Thanksgiving is still more than a month and a half away, but wild turkeys in the Arden area of Sacramento, CA seem to be on high alert for hungry humans.
After hearing numerous stories of rogue turkeys chasing after joggers, Sacramento News10 producer Duffy Kelly set off to investigate the claims herself and wound up with a vicious fowl hot on her tail. Well, maybe it wasn’t all that harrowing, but there’s no denying the wild and menacing look in that turkey’s beady bird eyes.
The Olympic Committee may not have any plans to allow robots into the 2012 Summer Games as of yet. But if they have a change of heart, we know at least one robot who will be prepared.
Robot NO.8 Kovacs is a small Japanese robot who has the type of skills on the high bar that even the best gymnasts would envy. While he does need a little help getting onto the bar, once he’s up there, his moves can’t be beat. Watch your back, Shawn Johnson.
When it comes to traditional forms of bike racing, staying on the bike is rule number one. With Cyclocross on the other hand, dismounting and dodging obstacles is par for the course. While we’re sure Cyclocross is tons of fun, from the looks of this video, it can also be pretty painful if, like Joey, you don’t see an upcoming hurdle and take a spill on the track.
When it comes to walking across the country from California to New York, “for the heck of it” is as good a reason as any. In fact, in an age where publicity and profit seem to be much more common motives for this type of quest, 24-year-old Catherine Li’s largely under-the-radar 3,000-mile trek stands out as a true exception.
It only takes two to tango but if you’re koalas trying to breed in captivity, it really takes three to do it right. Filmed at Chimelong Safari Park in Guangzhou, China, this video shows a dedicated zoo employee going the extra mile as she provides a little bit of extra support to the loving koala couple.
Soldiers know the value of surprise, especially when returning home from active duty to their loved ones.
When Joey found out he was getting sent home from Kuwait two weeks earlier than anticipated, he spent the three months prior planning to surprise his mom at the UPS sorting facility in Lansing, MI where she works.
The tortoise may be able to outrun the hare but he’s no match for the motorized wheelchair. Cruiser, a wily desert tortoise, is a fierce competitor, but an elderly, wheelchair-bound gentleman named Josef wins by a nose.
TRON Guy Jay Maynard is back and this time he’s got a little bit of corporate and creative muscle behind him. Created by San Francisco based agency Ryactive for Duck Brand duct tape, ‘Duck TRON’ is a colorful, duct tape send-up of the sci-fi flick’s famous racing sequences. And who’s the ‘user’ behind the races? Maynard, of course.
The video, which went live less than a week ago, has already racked up more than 300,000 views on Vimeo.
