That Exact Moment… Funny and Amazing Photos

Sometimes, we capture the perfect moment on camera. It is rare, but when it happens it’s priceless.
These photos each have a different story to tell. Whether they were intentional or not, what they caught was funny, ground-breaking, emotional and sometimes downright strange!

Even though many of these photographers only realized the gold they had after staring at the photograph for a while, when they realized what they caught on camera, we can imagine their joy. Sit back, and relax these crazy moments captured forever.

Perspective is everything

Get your mind out of the gutter! This very dirty looking picture is clearly another one of those photos captured at that perfect moment. The man has clearly passed out on the pool deck and this waitress must be picking up his drinks, but we cannot help but giggle!

Doggy World

There are moments when I am convinced dogs are just like us, just look at this guy perfectly cheeky expression as he checks those girls out! You dog you…

An Innocent Wave

When you look at that cute looking furry bear giving what seems like a friendly wave, it is so hard to believe that these animals are some of the deadliest out there! The furry guys seem to be waving innocently at his old friends!

Kiss me baby!

This giraffe knows what he wants and is not shy to go for it. He didn’t even allow the different species to get in the way of his efforts to score a smooch! Judging by her reaction, he may have read the signals a little wrong.

Take me to your leader

Cats, or any pet for that matter, in an E collar, or lamp shade if you wish, is funny. But this one takes the lot. An alien looking twist to a medical situation. Can’t stop laughing.

What have we come to?

When we were young, did we also idolize the lowest parts of a celebrity’s life? Or is it something in the milk they give kids today? Harry Styles, part of the One Direction boy band must be very happy with this picture running around the internet.

Predator Accosts Man Cycling Through Woods

In life, we can often find ourselves just looking to escape from day to day living from a little while. We can do that in all manner of ways, from a quick trip on foot to a nice little cycle through some lovely terrain. However, if you happen to step out into the wilds and the woods, you had best be prepared to look after yourself. YouTube channel Deep Bush Survival is living proof of the need to be vigilant wherever we go; you never know what kind of monsters are out there waiting for you!

They show off all manner of videos about survival and getting out of tight spots in the world. One of their most recent videos, though, is one of their most popular – watch it and you will see why…

Shot in October 2015, this video shows one of their team heading off for a ride in a mountainous, forested area on his bike. Relatively away from civilization from the looks of things, he’s cutting around on his bike and continues to showcase a wonderful, temperate location that really is quite wonderful to look at. In the middle of the video, though, we see something rather terrifying appear amongst the long grass.

At first, he does not even appear to notice it in the grass, such is the quality of its camouflage. He only notices the creature when it begins to slowly rustle through the grass to get closer to him. Immediately, he realises that he is in a lot of danger – far more than you would expect going on a standard trip like this.

It’s a mountain lion; one of the most dangerous creatures that you could likely run into in the wild, unarmed and on your own. These are extremely powerful, intelligent and agile cats that could, if they catch you, do you some deal damage – in fact, it’s likely it could even kill you!

As you might imagine, he takes a few steps back but the lion only takes this as encouragement that it has him on the run and proceeds to bound towards him. If it wanted dinner, it was going to catch him in a matter of seconds.

Trying to talk it down, informing it that he is “much bigger” that cat seems entirely unbothered. It starts to circle him like any predator would, creating a rather anxious moment that leaves you wondering how the man is going to get out of this one alive. Trying to scare it away with loud noises, the mountain lion makes some terrifying, low grumbles – showing it’s hungry, and ready to strike.

He tries to mimic its noises, only proceeding to anger it further. A small gap in the film shows us the lion still following the man to the end of a path. Rather than keep this cat and mouse game going, though, he starts to walk towards it in a bid to try and make it think twice – and it does so.

Seemingly put off by not having everything its own way, the cat turns around and stalks back into the woods, off to threaten someone else. With over 2m views at the time of writing, this video is a perfect example of how quickly things can turn dangerous in the wild – and how quickly they can go back to normal, too. How would you react in such a situation?

Our Favorite Stars – First Time on the Red Carpet

Believe it or not, making a Red Carpet appearance isn’t as easy as it sounds. Not at all. Especially when you’re so young and at the beginning of your career. You don’t know much about how things work in showbiz and you don’t always know what to put on, so every move and every word counts. Another tip you should be considering is that pictures and videos last forever, so you should alwyas think before breathing, smiling, talking, walking and whatever.

Let’s take a look at what some of your favorite celebrities looked like when they hit the Red Carpet for the first time.

2001: 26-year-Old Bradley Cooper

Bradley! Where has he been all our lives? Actually, where has he been all HIS life? Unlike others in this gallery, Bradley Cooper began his showbiz career quite “old”. After all, he was 26 when he became really famous! In 2001, Bradley Cooper was just getting started, and as you can see, he actually needed a name tag on his first red carpet walk!

How would you react to seeing him today with a name tag?!

Dress Code

I mean matching your shirt to your eyes isn’t something you do. It’s something your mother tells you to do. If that is not enough, he also dyed his hair blonde, which is such a 2000’s thing to do.

Next… we loved him then, and we sure love him now

MIT Student Potentially Saves Millions With Invention

When you get handed an assignment in school, you usually expect to do just enough to show that you are interested, committed and passionate about the process. MIT students especially are expected to show a greater level of understanding and knowledge of the service they are undertaking. For MIT Sloan School of Management student Vick Liu, though, his assessment could become a hugely important part of humanity.

Together with a group of students in his class, they came up with a concept that – in time – could save millions of lives around the world. He came up with the TravlerPack; an innovative invention that is a weather-resistant sleeping bag. Despite its lightweight and easy to carry nature, it’s durable enough to handle extensive weather conditions.

Having watched with horror at the plight of people around the world being left without anything to keep them safe, Liu decided that he wanted an idea that would be realistic, affordable and actionable to help these people. Liu tried out the first prototype to sleep on the roof of his frat house, and he found that it was also the night of a snowstorm so temperatures had dipped to under 15F. however, he stayed nice and warm during the night, proving his hypothesis.

A GoFundMe campaign soon raised $15,000 and thanks to the support they got, they even sent some packages away to Syria for those who are in need of support from the biting, freezing colds and the displacement millions are suffering from.

“We’ve been really lucky the whole way through,” said Liu. “This has been a journey of luck, intuition, and a lot of planning.”

It’s a truly innovative investment – all which came from a school assignment. Hopefully, it can play its part in giving those who need help most a chance to survive and, one day, thrive.

The Hidden Secret of One Man’s Dream Wife

When we meet that person of our dreams, it can be hard to believe that our search for love is over. We love everything about them, and we cannot find a single thing about them that we might change. However, for Blake Ruff, his meeting with Lori Erica Kennedy in 2003 was the beginning of a dream marriage that turned very sour.

A year into their amazing relationship that was moving at rapid pace, the pair seemed perfect for one another – besotted and deeply in love. A year in, they tied the knot together and everything looked perfect. They met at a Texas Bible Study class and Kennedy, newly arrived from Arizona, was looking to meet people.

They hit it off despite her rather guarded nature about her personal and private life, one which included no parents and a rough upbringing. Despite his own families guarded suspicion about her they pressed on and were married in 2004 before departing for Leonard, TX, to start a family.

Over a period of several years, though, Lori had several miscarriages and they were unable to start the family they so desperately wanted. Eventually, using IVF, she was pregnant with a baby girl to be born in 2008. However, when the baby was born everything changed. She pushed people away, and even wouldn’t let Blake’s mother touch the child – her guarded nature turned to complete over-protection.

Banned from seeing the family and with Lori taking more and more time to look into Blake’ family, the tension was unbearable and eventually Lori fell into a deep depression. By 2010, they were in counselling together but Lori was unable to overcome her issues, and thus they had to split – after seven years and a child together, they split up.

She wound up regularly seeing her church pastor, talking about her problems and her excessive weight loss, never at peace. In 2010, Christmas Eve, she appears at Blake’ family home in a black Tahoe SUV, and proceeded to come towards the house armed with a shotgun. Sadly, she turned the gun on herself and killed herself – found the next morning, alongside two suicide letters. One was for her daughter and the other for Blake, but neither could be made out.

Searching through her closet after death to try and pack up her stuff, Blake came across a large, black chest. With police help, he got the box opened and inside they found all manner of ID cards, birth certificates and a 1988 writ for a name change – when she was just 17. She’d changed her name from Becky Sue Turner – who apparently died in a house fire, aged 2 – to Lori Erica Kenney.

Apparently, she’d found an ID and a security card to get herself a GED and a Business degree from the University of Texas. Despite a complete lack of fingerprints or anything properly traceable, though, the officers were stumped – just who was “Lori”?

An old friend told them that Lori was a stripper in the early 90s, but after 1988 nothing official about her existed. In 2013, a breakthrough was made when Colleen Fitzpatrick, a genealogist, used DNA from Blake and Lori’ daughter to try and find a connection.

They found a very distant connection in Pennsylvania, where they met with a man called Michael Cassidy. It turns out that ‘Lori’ was, aged 17, a disappearing individual who had left her home at age 17 as her mother married someone she deeply hated. Sadly, this was all that could be found: all other information, facts or otherwise, went to the grave with Lori. RIP Lori, the victim of what must have been some deeply tragic circumstances.

Dread-inducing Signs Exposing the Truth About Climate Change

Depending on who you listen to, climate change is either an impending ecological disaster we’re all ignoring or a scam made up by companies to keep someone somewhere down. However, they say a picture tells a thousand words, right?

Here’s an example of just some images that show the horrifying destruction that climate change is having on the world around us. It’s not just the reams of data about rising sea levels, glaciers and arctic ice melting away, heat waves, water droughts and weird weather storms; it’s about what’s going on elsewhere.

The Great Barrier Reef

This is one of the most common and terrifying examples of the damage being done to the world. The Great Barrier Reef has been falling apart for some time, with over 2,900 reefs and 900 islands making up the largest coral reef system in the world. As you can see from the images above, it is – or was – a beautiful place.

Now, take a look at this image below.

How could we let things get so bad? We’ve managed to destroy over 1,400 miles of natural wonderment. As one of the Seven Wonders of the World, it looks like we might have just killed off a fairy-tale if these harrowing images of the before and after are anything to go by.

With over two third of the great barrier reef gone, the change to try and save it looks to have passed. They are dying out, and in 2017 the Nature journal produced a harrowing obituary for what was once a symbol of the thriving life beyond land.

The Alps

Think it’s just tropical parts of the world that are falling into disrepair? Think again. Take a look at this photo of the alps from back in the day – how wonderful and full it looks. With millions of years of history and no signs that they ever wound up as bad as they are today, it’s hard to see the changing of the Alps as ‘just nature’ as many skeptics claim.

As you can see from the image above, the damage to the Alps is far worse than we could ever have imagined. These once stunning 13,000ft regions have become extensively damaged, nothing like the amazing scenes they once were.

It’s expected that with a 2-degree temperature rise in 120 years, we could see another 2-degree rise in just 40 years. This is dreadfully worrying, and shows how much damage we are doing to the world. Not only are the glaciers beginning to sink, but it means that the heat is reflecting off the smaller glaciers meaning it will heat up the planet even more…creating a terrifying prospect for trying to stop nature.

Add in the fact that people worry that ancient pathogens from some of the worst times in human history could be released too, and the sign of the Alps and the Great Barrier Reef falling into such horrible disrepair should do something to help you see the immense damage the world is undergoing at present.

If we don’t do something soon, these kind of natural wonders will become consigned to history books read in oxygen pods as the world is gradually destroyed by our own inaction. It’s time for change.

Depending on who you listen to, climate change is either an impending ecological disaster we’re all ignoring or a scam made up by companies to keep someone somewhere down. However, they say a picture tells a thousand words, right?

Are Disney VHS’ Making Collectors Rich?

Back in the day, did you happen to have a boatload of old VHS tapes covering all the Disney classics?

As you might imagine, these kinds of classics tend to become quite worthwhile. It happens in all kind of industries; sports cards, trading cards, coins, stamps, CDs, anything you can imagine. And right now, people are going crazy for the retro feel of an old, bulky VHS. As the ‘vinyl’ of TV, VHS cassettes were all the rage until the dawn of CD-capable TV media.

A Trend With Almost Everything

Old tapes, looking back, were a complete pain. They had to be rewound manually, despite their bulky size were as flimsy as they came, and could easily be written over. It wasn’t rare to find people’ favorite movies and cartoons completely written off by a carless Record without changing the VHS!

Disney movies, though, were all the rage; they were absolutely massive at the time. The likes of Aladdin were huge hits, and many editions were made to cash in on the new hype-train. With limited and special editions released of just about every Disney movie, certain people started to find they had these limited copies without even knowing it.

Valuable Beyond Imagination

Now, prepare yourself for this: if you have the specific copy of Beauty and the Beast listed below, you could get around $9,000 for it on eBay from a crazy collector. These are very specifically-detailed styles of the VHS itself. It also has to be in more or less top condition. Don’t start tearing up the attic to find all of your old videos’ just yet!

If the spine of a video reads “The Classics” in a little triangular image, you might just be in luck. These were a very limited style of Disney movie, and some of them can sell for a few hundred dollars. Some might even get you more, of course, like the above. If you have the same Beauty and the Beast with the Human Again song in it, that is worth a lot of money itself.

The one above, you might notice, reads A Walt Disney Classic on the image. That’s even rarer than the simple “The Classics” range and is even more limited. These can be worth the four figures seen above in the right condition and quality.

Other weird ones like the old and banned copy of The Little Mermaid with the ‘old’ cover can net you a lot of money at the same time. Banned and discontinued content certainly up the value too.

Of course it is vital to make sure it’s in top condition, works perfectly well and everything else. It might be worth investing in a VCR if you want to try them out if you have any of the more classic Walt Disney VHS tapes. If you do, you could be in for a nice little financial bonus!

Dogs Terrify Family, But Turn Out to Be Heroes

Dogs are often animals that are mistaken to be aggressive – in particular pitbulls. For one family in Thonotosassa, Florida, though, what seemed to be an aggressive turn from obedient dogs turned out be an act of heroism.

47-year-old Melissa Butt had her beloved pit-bulls, Paco and Slayer, in the garden with her grandchildren. When she heard them barking ferociously, though, she freaked. What was going on? They were always such friendly, kind dogs. On this August morning she had left the dogs to watch over Zayden, 4, and Mallory, just 18 months, while she attended to her garden. But soon she heard roaring barks came from behind her and she rushed around to see what was going on.

Seemingly Violent Behaviour

Standing firm at a particular patch of grass, the two dogs seemed transfixed on something – but not the kids. Getting the little ones inside quickly (who were totally unharmed) and returning with her husband Daniel, the problem was then revealed. The dogs were not threatening the children – they had found a venomous snake in the garden. Suggested to be a Copperhead Viper, it’s a deadly form of snake and was only a short distance from where the children were.

To think the fear was over the dogs! Instead, they’d gathered the attention of the snake to make sure the little ones would be safe; heroes of the highest kind.

Young Paco had noticed the snake first, and raised the alarm, as the larger Slayer stepped in to make sure things wouldn’t go any further. Trying to cajole the snake out of the way, it was having nothing of it – and then it launched an attack, biting poor Paco, then it turned on Slayer and got him too!
Biting Paco on the leg and then Slayer twice on the face, Slayer showed his strength by barely noticing the bite and eventually returned fire, grabbing the snake in its jaws. The next rush was for the dogs to get them to hospital and make sure that they would be OK.

The Drama Explained

Speaking to CBS News, Melissa explained how the drama unfolded. “[after biting Paco,] that’s when Slayer grabbed the snake in his mouth and killed it,” she said. Butt continued by sharing that Slayer “almost bit [the snake] in half”. She said.

Since the venom of a Copperhead can be pretty powerful, the dogs had to be treated ASAP or face a tragic end. As Slayer’ face began to swell rapidly, they were both struggling to breathe and were obviously in trouble. Getting them in the car and racing off to the vet, things looked bleak.

Thankfully, despite the potency of the poison to a dog, the veterinarians were able to help the dogs – Quickly administering the antidotes, both dogs were treated to help make sure they could manage the pain and the illness. Slayer, though, was going to need more help – a single anti-venom would not be enough for him as he’d take in so much.

A Back-breaking Bill Threatens Happy Ending

Several courses of antidote and a few more days in the hospital, though, and Slayer was back up and running just fine, ready to recover. However, the massive costs of treatment left Melissa in a tough spot; paying for the treatment was going to be impossible. Then, Frankie’s Friends, a charity that helps pet owners manage critical costs for animal care, stepped in. The bills to keep Slayer strong became affordable, and Melissa was able to have a happy ending.

“Frankie’s Friends has been a blessing to our hero[es].” Melissa beamed, “I know my dogs are heroes, and without a doubt saved the lives of my grandchildren. They are too small to have fought something off like that.” On her Facebook page, she added: “As bad as it is, we are lucky and blessed.”

How far would you go to save your pets?

A New Project By Simon Pegg and Nick Frost

Edgar Wright had a big debacle a few years ago with his Ant-Man. His next thing should be Baby Driver and as he announced, it is coming this summer. There was no question that Wright’s fans were excited to hear that he is coming back, but almost everyone just wanted Simon Pegg and Nick Frost once again.

Frost and Pegg were incredible in The World’s End four years ago and many fans would really like to see them join forces once again. People obviously love this partnership and it would be great to see a sequel to one of the Cornetto films. If not that, it would be as good to see them in a new entry in the series or something totally new, a whole other project.

Actually, there is some good news for the fans. Pegg and Frost do have a new project coming up. Nick Frost had some really vague comments: ”Simon and I are working on something. We’re trying to do something a bit special at the moment. It’s a work in progress, and we may have some more information on it later in the year.” But then some more information came up and now we know what to expect from these two actors: “I think I’d want to do something in the sci-fi world. Something a bit ghost hunter-y, or a bit Monster of the Week in a comedy. With two guys and a girl, it’s like the X-Files, but they’re not affiliated with any government agency.”

Frost also had some comments considering his and Pegg’s career now when they are a bit older and both have more experience. He said: “We’re not Judd Apatow, we’re not J.J. Abrams, so there are still people who say, ‘I’d like to see this.’ You’re still made to jump through hoops. Everyone has a job to do and everyone has an opinion on everything. Writing Paul, Simon and I would always have a knee-jerk reaction to someone giving a note about something and think, “What do you f***ing know?” I think as you get older and you mature more, you realize, you know what? Listen to that note. It could be f***ing great, it could be worthwhile.”

One thing that is still uncertain is whether Edgar Wright will be involved in all this and we also don’t have a clue if it is going to be a project for television or film. Simon and Nick were absolutely great together in Spaced and it would be very cool to see them in a new original TV series, but considering the fact that they both have really busy schedules, it seems more likely that there will actually be a film. Of course, with Edgar Wright on board.

It is actually a bit too early to know just how the collaboration could and will look like. Will it be a film or a TV series and weather Edgar Wright will be there? But nevertheless, it is a great news to hear that Nick Frost and Simon Pegg are working together again.

Students Renovate An Old School Bus. The Outcome Is Incredible!

Meet Nick, John, Dan, Amy, Sam, Nicky K, Rory and Michael. They got together to put their big dream into reality.

The Dream

It all began with the students finding an old school bus for sale cheap. They then embarked on a quest to fully transform it by investing their own money, at an amount of $20,000.
For several months, they worked on this amazing bus to change it from junk heap to livable space. Come and join their amazing journey!

The Beginning

The main protagonist of this building fairytale, Nick, already had some degree of experience in building as he previously worked as a project manager for a general contractor.

He also has handyman experience and knows how to deal with renovation projects. The first step of his dream was to buy an old bus; the chosen bus was a 40 feet tall 1995 Carpenter school bus.

The Potential

The owner of this old Carpenter was a blacksmith who had a similar dream as his buyers. He too wanted to convert the school bus into an RV.

However, he didn’t even come close to transforming the bus into an RV. He had painted the bus a bit and ripped several of the seats out, but there was still so much work to be done for the bus to become an actual home.

To get this project done, the students needed to be serious about their projects and their plans, or else they’d fail just like the blacksmith had done.

The bus was priced around $3,000 and purchasing was just the beginning. Now the schoolie was in the hands of new owners, and they saw its potential.
