Fish Swim Across Roads Post-Flood

When floods hit, they can do some incredible damage.  Often, the damage can be quite extreme and it can become rather expensive for the people to get their lives back to normal after the incident. That being said, sometimes one of the few minor benefits of a flood (if you can call it that) is videos like this one.

An Outrageous Scene

It shows you the essence of something you might expect from that Jumanji reboot that was flying around. Fish in the streets? Not even in Venice. This outrageous video, though, shows us that you will be able to find something absolutely outrageous taking place somewhere in the world – if you look hard enough.

Following a massive storm in Washington, the streets were beginning to fill up with water and people were beginning to get a little concerned. It was becoming worse than usual, the flooding, so there was a natural uncertainty about what was to come next. However, nobody expected to see fish floating around the streets, that’s for sure!

Skokomish River in Mason County has been struggling in recent times due to excessive rainfall, and the flood has – at times – got pretty bad for people who are living in the area. However, it’s a first to see the sea-life from the river winding up floating around the streets. In the photos and the video provided, you can first-hand a fish moving across the road. That’s right, the water had reached such a height that a couple of fish had actually managed to get pulled inland and onto the road!

A New Street River is Formed

To be exact, it’s a salmon fish ought in this video. The water had become so overly flooded that a ‘new’ river  was being formed. Since it’s more or less out of the water, though, it’s obviously struggling.

Since salmon can swim upstream, though, they have a relatively easy ability to handle the stresses of swimming like this. So, unlike other kinds of fish, it probably has a better chance of surviving presuming it get itself back to full water in a relatively short space of time. it must have been very strange for the salmon to come up against this though!

If you want to see just how outrageous this is, then I implore that you take the time to watch this video. I have honestly never seen anything like it. I live near a river with fish in it that used to flood from time to time, but I never got held up at a pedestrian crossing because of a fish making its way past!

Have you ever seen anything quite like this?

YouTubers Fly Around New York on Star Wars Speeder Bikes

Every Halloween, you can always find people who take cosplay to a whole new level. Some people go nuts for this kind of stuff, and realy go that extra mile to make a mark. Most of the time, the best ones go viral very quickly thanks to good old social media. Well, this one was fantastic – a true testament to the creativity and charm of Halloween.

Getting Creative

YouTubers Casey Neistat and Jesse Wellens are creative individuals anyway, and they tend to be quite cooky and creative on their channels as it is. So, they decided to start going a little crazier with each year, following on from the stupendous 2015 Magic Carpet that they pulled off. They’ve done a few crazy things so far, but this year they decided to jump in on the upcoming hype for the new Star Wars and invoke an old classic; a speeder bike.

They built a pair of absolutely bad-ass speeder bikes based on Return of the Jedi, and powered around the streets of New York. The bikes are a pair of Super 73 electric motorbikes, and they spent the best part of three weeks fitting them up. Alongside fiberglass shelling to make the look, they also added all sorts of awesome spoilers to really make them look the part.

Jesse rode with a friend, Carmella Rose, and they dressed as the classic Luke and Leia style from the Endor scenes of ROTJ, and it was an absolutely fantastic costume to pull off. They look great as they plow through the streets on a fantastic take on one of the best vehicles in movie history.

Meanwhile, Casey went for the classic Stormtrooper outfit and “chased” them through the streets of New York.

Going the Extra Mile

Thankfully, no “real” Stormtrooper showed up, and the police never had any issue with their awesome little stunt. Take a look for yourself and see the benefits of people getting creative at Halloween?

It’s a massive amount of work, obviously, but the end product is absolutely sensational. The amount of effort that has gone into the making can be seen, too and it’s a damn fine watch. As you can see, these are people more than happy to go that extra mile to build a fantastic set-piece.

While some people are happy to go as a whoopee cushion for Halloween, this trio have shown how us it could – and should – be done.

Wallet Found Seven Decades After Loss

When you lose your wallet, most of the time you spend about a day, two tops, looking for it. After a while, though, it’s usually commonplace to accept that it’s gone and probably won’t be coming back anytime soon. This can mean having to make lots of phone calls to cancel cards, and accept that those timeless wallet photos and any cash inside is most likely lost forever.

As we all know, though, sometimes things pop up back into our possession in ways we would have never expected. When someone lost their wallet 71 years ago, though, they’d likely spent the majority of life forgetting about it – it was just a wallet after all, right?

Larry Sloan, who runs The Talent Factory, a popular comedy club in Nevada, came across a rather interesting discovery when he found this wallet. The wallet was found when Larry and a mate were carrying out some renovation reviews on the club. Inbetween two floor boards, it has clearly been lost a long time ago. In a bid to find out where it came from and who it belongs to, Larry began a search.

It was still in good shape despite being lost for so long, albeit with a touch of fading and a nice dust jacket enveloped around it. Other than that, though, the wallet was in pretty good condition. So, they decided to open it up and see if anything inside would give them an idea as to who it belonged to. Given its age, though, hopes weren’t high….

Inside the wallet, though, was all manner of old-school items – for example, a proper food ration stamp from the Second World War. They kept looking through the wallet, finding various trinkets as they dug deeper. They also found a proper old school Boy Scouts card, decades old at the very least, and some old phots that were faded and hard to make out. The best find, though, was a small calendar stored in there – dated 1944.

Digging deeper, they found a little ID card that read Clare McIntosh in faded blue ink – they now just had to find a certain Ms. McIntosh who would fit the timeline. However, the story almost ended here; all they had was a name and a photo of young man to go on.

However a deep search continued, until the two gentleman were able to finally find the famous Clare McIntosh alive and well, in good spirits, aged 85. They gave him back his old memorabilia and let him take back a little bit of his childhood that he must have presumed was long lost.

It’s a nice little story, and shows you that things can turn up in so many places – even when you least expect them.

Would you go to the trouble of finding someone who had lost a possession so far back in history? Or would you just let slide, and never try to reach or contact them?

Ever Wonder What Happens When A Girl Chats Up A Guy?

Ever since, well, ever, guys have been finding ways to repulse woman with awful chat-up lines and pick-up routines. From cringeworthy jokes to ridiculous stories, most of them are failures. Since the opening of the internet, though, and the fact we can now contact people with just a few strokes of a keyboard (instead of having to take a physical slap/drink in the face) some guys are, to be frank, vile.

They’ll spend all day propositioning themselves on women across the internet, being absolute pests. We’ve all seen horrible examples of guys being letches across the web – they are a dime a dozen. What you rarely get to see, though, is the wonderful reaction of a man being chatted up on the internet.

It’s like Bambi on ice.

Using the #DateChallenge tag, women started to go around asking guys out via text, WhatsApp, DM etc. to see what kind of comical reactions they will get. Here is a breakdown of five of the most comical reactions that have turned across the tag:

OMG

Jesus. That’s absolutely bodying. Not even a rejection – not even a response. Just blocked. More or less asked to leave the person alone, to neve return to them again and to never dare think of them in any other capacity. That’s absolutely shocking – bet you moans about never being able find someone as well.

Being Blunt

Yeah, fair enough. May as well ask and get it out of the way – I mean that’s gonna make you look absolutely swell, for sure. ‘are u trying to have kids with me’ – may as well get the tough questions out the way before the first date, right?

The King of Charm


When you knock someone back for a date, it’s usually protocol to be kind of nice about it. Let them down gently and all that. Nah, not this guy. He just steams in with a personal dig and a rather gruff end remark. Fair enough, the sender takes it well but yeah…I’d be ending that friendship in the mid-term.

That’s More Like It

A bit of snap and a bit of jazz – I like that. Went for it, hit the target, got him to admit he had the hots for him and finished off with a bit of style. I like this one – it’s very good, and also nice to see that not all guys suffer from vacuous pride issues where they cannot say yes to being propositioned.

Can’t Say No

Jeez, how awkward can you get? Rather than just having the cojones to come out and say what he wants to say – no – he goes for the “uh breaking up” line. I know how low I’d sink if a girl hit me with this one; I think being told “No, you suck!” would be a fair bit easier to take, you know?

A bit on the crass side, my friend. You’ll probably regret that one later on down on the line.

The Most Delightful Dog Gets Adopted

When you look online or in magazines/newspapers and see the ‘Dogs for Adoption’ section, you usually find yourself just going “Awww!” at all the awesome photos. Some, though, have greater effect and eventually lead to us wanting to press ahead with the adoption. This is what happened to little Cheech, a dog from the Waller Animal Shelter and Rescue,  who stood out more than most.

A wonderful smile really stood out with the staff and, before long, his image had gone viral – everyone loved his beaming, happy, charming smile!

The shelter posted photos of him online, adding: “Busy day today… we got 3 adopted over the last week and a half. And we got 3 more in today alone. At least we got this guy in, he’s super sweet and knows how to smile when you ask him to.”

His comical and adorable smile immediately got people talking, and before long people were enquiring about how they could take Cheech home with them. Messages flooded in and they then had to choose between who they should let adopt him. With so many options to choose from, he was the most popular dog at the shelter!

They found him a home with a couple known as Carrie and Dusty. Having lost her Shepherd to cancer, Carrie and co. were looking for someone to help them fill that void in their lives. Dusty, their other dog, simply was not eating and was suffering from a deep, profound depression.

Happily, little Cheech now moved home and we are happy to report that Carrie and Dusty are very happy with their new friend for life.

Would you be able to say no to an adorable little face like that? I know for a fact that I most certainly couldn’t.

It’s Me or the Mutt – Who Does He Choose?

In life, we are faced with making tough decisions that we do not want to make on a regular basis. For this couple, though, the decision had boiled down to something rather simple. Would the man of the relationship choose his dog, or his partner?

When ultimatums are made, there is usually a point of no return – and for this couple, that was almost certainly the case. Having spoken about moving in together, his partner made it clear that she would only move in if the dog went – she HATED the dog, and couldn’t possibly live in the same house as it is.

Ultimatums are never a sign of a happy, healthy relationship and when one is issued, it’s usually crunch time. Molly the beautiful Beagle was the problem here, and one had to go – it was either the partner or the dog. While he knew his partner didn’t really like Molly, he never thought it was a major issue and was definitely something that could be overcome. Sadly, it did not seem to be the case.

Sadly, he went to Craigslist and listed beautiful Molly for someone to come and take, saying that “I have to rehome her.”

In the rest of the ad, he’s so clear about how awesome Molly is.

“She is a purebred from a wealthy area and I have had her for four years. She likes to play games. Not totally trained. Has long hair so she’s a little high maintenance, especially the nails, but she loves having them done.”

You can just tell that he hates having to do this, and does not seem to be too happy about making the choice. However, the ad concluded in the most wonderful way.

“So… anyone interested in my 30-year-old, selfish, wicked, gold-digging girlfriend? Come and get her! Me and my dog want her rehomed ASAP!”

=D.

It looks like the decision that he made was the right one after all. How could anyone hate a dog who looks so friendly, charming and adorable as little Molly? We won’t name names, but well done to the guy; looks like you and your partner were not ready for committing to each other yet, anyway.

Who would you choose – the dog or your partner?

Night Vision Solves Mystery of Creative Pit Bull

When we go to bed at night, what our pets get up to is always a bit of a mystery. Sometimes they just sleep, other times they make their way into the wilderness and do something a little bit crazy. When the YouTube user autoedit decided to set up a night vision camera to check his Pi Bull’s late night activities,  he found that his dog had rather…odd behavior.

He discovered that his dog decided to wake him up in the most comical way in the mornings. While we all sometimes have a bit of trouble getting out of bed, for this one YouTuber his own way of getting up was rather different to say the least!

He realized the hard way that if you let your dog into the room in the morning, they’ll come in and make sure that you get up. They’ll lick away at you, run around and just flop all over you until you get up in the mornings and make sure you attend to their doggy needs!

The dog first appears in the video at just before 5AM, trying to look out of the curtains before being asked to leave it alone. After some nice begging, Grey agrees and walks off – like your own personal alarm dog with a snooze button.

Around 20 minutes later, she re-appears. She sits down beside the bed and just starts to make the most adorable whining noises. With a little bit of back and forth between pet and owner, Grey decided to leave and come back in a little while again…

20 minutes later again, she returns this time albeit a little more sheepishly having missed out beforehand. Shaking her collar, she decides that it’s time and hops up on top of her owner to get them out of bed to which they reluctantly agree.

While some might worry the dog was in need and was being neglected, it’s apparently just what she does and she has a dog door to get outside whenever she pleases. It’s just nice to see that clearly Grey loves her owner so much that she just wants them to get up and spend time with them!

American Woman Accidentally Marries Into Royalty!

When we meet our one and only, we can find it hard to believe that they might keep secrets from us by the time that we get married. Sometimes, though, secrets are kept because it can cause great uncertainty and dismay – and for good reason.

When Ariana Austin met Joel Makonnen in the 00s, they were immediately besotted by one another. However, what Ariana did not know was that her new man was actually a part of the Ethiopian Royal Family!

They met just before he turned 22 years old, and soon became hugely interested in one another. Despite not expecting it to be too serious, they hit it off and things moved very quickly for the happy couple. Makonnen, though, felt a little more inclined to believe that they were meant to be.

“Within five minutes, I said, ‘You’ll be my girlfriend.’” Joel explained, “It was more like an assertive question, I just had a really good chemistry with her right away. I felt like I already knew her.”

However, his ‘cover’ was blown relatively quickly.

“We were with some friends … and one of my friends brought it up and said, ‘You know, you’re lucky. Your boyfriend is a prince! And I always kind of like had my own way to introduce it, but he just put it out there and I kind of laughed it off.”

It turns out that Joel is the great grandson of the famous Haile Selassie!

However, it never got to her and she never treated him any differently.

“She kind of got it right away in the most respectful sense, where she was like, ‘Wow don’t shrug. It’s a big deal. I’m really impressed and it’s amazing.’” Joel explained.

They got married in September 2017 in front of 300 guests at the plush Debre Genet Medane Alem Ethiopian Orthodox Church in Temple Hills, Maryland. However, Joel and Ariana were clear that they just wanted to live a normal, happy life together and avoid any excessive fanfare or uncertainty.

”It feels pretty weighty but I’m excited, it’s the world’s oldest monarchy and there’s just something pretty powerful about that. Of course I’m happy to be a part of it and I hope I can … be of service and take all this good will and all this good energy and just turn it back and do good work in our countries.” Ariana said.

How would you react to finding out that you were with royalty? Would you be excited?

Man with Peanut Allergy Goes The Extra Mile with Proposal

When we hear of people popping the big question, you always want them to say yes. It takes so much bravery and courage to ask someone to marry you that it can be tough to hear someone say no. however, for Tom Ciancia and Lauren Trulli, the stunt pulled in Tom’s proposal almost makes you want her to say no!

Tom was being wheeled into the Emergency Room with Lauren, who herself is a nurse at the Monmouth Medical Center, New Jersey. Being ‘treated’ for a severe peanut allergy attack, Lauren got an even bigger fright than she expected. To make matters worse, Tom is a nurse at the hospital too and its well-known he has a major peanut allergy.

17th September was just any normal day, until Tom was now on a stretcher and being hurled into the back of an ambulance to be saved. Immediately, Lauren got to work in a bid to make sure he could get the treatment that he needed – as any good nurse and partner would do. Knowing the severity of his allergy and how bad it could be, she held back the nerves and got to work.

Pretending to come off the stretcher by mistake, the nimble nurse landed on one knee and popped out a diamond ring to ask her the big question. Proclaiming that it was “[This is] the best way to surprise you” he popped the big question.

Starting to cry and even using a surgical glove to wipe away her tears and to calm her emotions down, she said yes to the uproar and cheers of everyone in the room. It was upload to the Elberon First Aid accounts online, and it was shared online among people who enjoyed the witty romanticism of it all.

Mentioning their good work in making sure it all went to play, the captioned the awesome video on Facebook with “Today we did something truly special for two people! We would like to congratulate Tom and Lauren on their engagement! We helped Tom propose by ‘scaring’ Lauren into saying yes!”

How far would you go to give your partner the big question?
