Woodley's owner had just parked the RV outside of a grocery store and ran inside to pick up a few items. But Woodley apparently grew tired of waiting, so he released the handbrake and headed down the hill where he was parked. And observers said he did a great job driving and he avoided hitting any pedestrians or cars in his mile long journey! Fortunately a passerby saw what was happening and he was able to run and catch up with the vehicle and hop on the side and engage the handbrake from the driver's window.
We already knew that octopi in captivity are able to escape from their enclosures with remarkable frequency. And now finally someone captured video of an octopus leaving his familiar watery dwelling and heading out on dry land in search of a meal! How would you like to run into this guy in a dark hallway?
Hopefully the answer is no!Â Â She was just arrested in Florida for performing illegal cosmetic procedures without a license.Â Â She was injecting her "patient's" buttocks with a mixture of cement, fix-a-flat and superglue.Â Â Â She promised her victims they would be able to show off a new butt that looked almost as good as hers!
Peruvian anthropologist Renato Davila Riquelme has discovered the remains of an unidentified creature with a "triangle shaped" skull nearly as large as its 20-inch-tall body.Â Â Â Â And scientists in both Russia and Peru are claiming the body is not from this planet!
Then you need to get him or her one of these adorable robotic bear pillows!Â Â Jukusui-Kun is a sweet, soft bear that monitors your oxygen levels and any sounds you make while you sleep.Â If you begin to snore, Jukusui-Kun will gently tap your face...keep up the snoring and the taps become more intense.Â Â Nighty night!

Forget those silly press on eyeballs that I told you about a while back...you need to get a permanent eyeball tattooed on your eyelid! And tattoo artists are claiming that this is becoming more and more popular!!
Then you are not going to like this video one little bit!!!! A robotics expert is creating a robot version of a colossal snake that lived amongst the dinosaurs. It is called a Titanoboa and it will eventually be 50 feet long and weigh over a ton...just like the real snake!! The final version will be covered with "skin" and will be able to swim underwater! Here is robot Titanoboa's first meeting with another huge robot, Mondo the spider! Enjoy!!
That is exactly what it is according to the woman that found it!Â Â Â She says she heard a loud thud outside of her house and found this guy, wearing a one-piece garmet lying next to a bunch of metal.Â Â Â The body was said to be extremely hot and she wrapped it in blankets and put it in her refrigerator.Â Â She then called the Karelian Research Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences to come and investigate.Â Â They sent two staff members to her house and they left with the body.Â Â Â What do you think it is?
Check out these images from Google Earth that show unidentified titanic structures in the middle of the Chinese desert. The first one is an intricate network of what appears to be huge metallic stripes. Is this a military experiment?
It's located in Dunhuang, Jiuquan, Gansu, north of the Shule River, which crosses the Tibetan Plateau to the west into the Kumtag Desert. It covers an area approximately one mile long by more than 3,000 feet wide.
The second structure seems to be some kind of giant targeting grid, also north of the Shule river.
If you zoom in, you can see vehicles destroyed. It's west of what seems to be a fairly big electrical station or a radio station similar to HAARP, the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program located near Gakona, Alaska, and funded by the US Air Force, the US Navy, the University of Alaska, and DARPA.
This one may the strangest of them all.Â Thousand of lines intersecting in a titanic grid that is about 18 miles long. Another targeting grid?
This is another HUGE grid, similar to the first photo.
I definitely don't like the looks of this one!Â Â Is it for military target practice?Â Â Check out the jet fighters in the center.
Here is a weird airport-like structure. Except it's bright cyan. Seems full of water or made of a weird material. And look at the other airport-like structure next to it. Perhaps a decoy?
This is a huge complex, ten by five miles at least. Are these huge precipitation pools of some kind? If youÂ zoom in Google maps (see the image below this one), you could see two cooling towers like those used in nuclear plants, as well as several water treatment plants.
These are the motorized boxers controlled by two drivers who battle to deliver chin-lifting uppercuts for victory. Similar to bumper cars, a driver up to 300 lbs. sits inside the robot's protective steel cage cockpit and uses a thumb-triggered button on two independent joysticks to activate two pneumatic-powered, tire-tread-fisted arms, which throw upward punches at an opposing robot's head.Â Â Want a pair for your very own?Â Just CLICK HERE to place your order! Oh and by the way...it'll set you back $17,000.00!!
This little fella just keeps getting more and more amazing...or scary!!
He...or it...can now run at a maximum speed of 9 kilometers per hour, jump up and down for as long as it wants, and even hop on one leg, should it ever need to. Plus, its hands are now more dexterous than ever thanks to independent finger operation. (SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO)
Mukesh Ambani, a billionaire in Mumbai has just completed construction on his BILLION dollar dream house.Â Â Although most residents of the city struggle to make ends meet,Â Mukesh built this monstrosity for his family.

Check out these images, from Google Mars discovered by "virtual" archaelogist Joseph Skipper.Â Â Skipper claims the images show evidence of a track-based transportation system,Â a vehicle on the tracks, and several buildings at the end of the track system.
Ever wished you could change your eye color permanently to blue? No...we're not talking about contacts...we're talking about having beautiful blue eyes like a Siberian Husky! Well soon you will be able to do just that! Dr. Gregg Homer of Stroma Medical Center in California has perfected a procedure that uses a laser to change dark eyes to blue in only 20 seconds. The procedure is still going through clinical trials, but should be available outside of the United States within 18 months and here in the U.S. in three years. BUT...you better be sure you want blue eyes: the procedure is non-reversible!
Here is a brown eye halfway through the procedure
Here is a brown eye 3/4 of the way through the procedure

The team that has been searching for proof of the existence of Yeti has finally released some photos to back up their claim that they have "irrefutable evidence" that the Yeti is alive and well! These pictures are from an extremely remote area of Siberia.
This is a nest built by a Yeti for sleeping
This is a cave where a pack of Yeti are thought to live
This is a Yeti footprint found in the cave
This hair was found in the cave and DNA tests show that it does not match any known animal...must be a Yeti hair
This structure was found in the forest and is thought to have been made by a family of Yeti
Check out this good looking fella that was just reeled in by two fisherman in Cordoba, Argentina.Â Â Â They were fishing in a reservoir which is fed by a local nuclear power plant.Â Â Whose hungry for some tasty fish and chips?!?!
Check out this video from Sunday's football game on NBC. Watch for the streaks of light at :06, :12, and :19 seconds into the video clip. Then check out what the streaks of light look like when they are freeze-framed! It certainly appears to be some type of saucer-shaped aircraft and it is clearly moving at an incredibly high speed. But what is it??
According to Italian Shark experts, if you find yourself unexpectedly swimming with a shark...don't panic!Â You can easily hypnotize almost any shark (according to the researchers....not me!!) simply by rubbing their ampullae of Lorenzini:Â the name given to hundreds of jelly-filled pores around the animals nose and mouth.Â Â The sharks apparently love it and will fall into a deep trance for as long as you rub this area.Â Â Of course you will eventually have to stop rubbing to come up for air and then the shark may eat you, but it will be cool to balance a shark on your fingertips at least for a little while!
Look at the photo of these local children from a small village in the Amazonian Rainforest. Now look at the rear of the photo....what is that bright light...is it spacecraft? And what is that creature?? This area has been the focus of a Brazilian government operation for years to investigate hundreds of UFO sightings. Is this proof the aliens are here?
This is what happens when you leave out a decimal point when ordering slippers. Tom Boddingham meant to order a 14.50 inch slipper, but instead he ordered and received a 1,450 inch slipper!! And now I want one too!!
So we have this to look forward to when we are elderly: a robot that will lift us from bed to bed. His name is Riman and he is going to be used in nursing homes to assist the staff when a patient needs to be lifted out of bed.
Don't be surprised if you see one of these sweet faces smiling back at you on your next visit to the hospital! They are called Actroids and they are being placed in hospitals in Japan to monitor patients. They basically sit in your room and stare at you to make sure you are doing OK. Pleasant dreams.

From the Geological Society of America:Â "Photo shows shonisaur vertebral disks arranged in curious linear patters with almost geometric regularity. The arranged vertebrae resemble the pattern of sucker discs on a cephalopod tentacle, with each vertebra strongly resembling a coleoid sucker."
So the question is...what arranged the bones of these huge shonisaurs (marine reptiles that grew up to 49 feet in length)?Â Â Â Â Two respected paleontologists have suggested it may have been the mythical KRAKEN!!
Nestle, the maker of Beneful dog food, has just announced a new ad campaign that is supposed to get your dogs attention. The entire television ad has a high-pitch tone that, although inaudible to humans, is going to wake your dogs up and get them excited about Beneful dog food!
Apparently lots of people do! Crooked teeth are seen as imperfections in many western countries, and particularly in America, where braces are practically a God-given gift to man, but in Japan, a country where almost everything is different, they are considered cute, even adorable. And now there are salons that specialize in making straight teeth crooked!
Look at this poor little seal. He was born an albino and his mother and siblings rejected him. Everytime he would try to get near the rest of the harem (that's what you call a group of seals...I looked it up!), they would all flee away from him. He was left all alone to fend for himself. Fortunately a wildlife photographer spotted him and he is now living a pampered life in a Russian "dophinaquarium" and the dolphins have begun treating him like one of their own! Yay dolphins!!
HE has a face only a mother could love - but unfortunately for this adorable little seal his big blue eyes and sweet disposition weren't enough to win her affections.
In fact the pupâs ginger fur and pink flippers proved too much for the mother who abandoned him, earning him the title of the worldâs loneliest pup.
The albino seal looks out from under a pile of logs waiting for food from its mother.
Who will play with me? The lost and lonely the little albino seal look on as the other pups play on the beach.
Check out this photograph that is currently listed on Ebay.Â Â The owner wants a million bucks for it.Â Â He claims it is a photo taken in 1870 of a man that looks exactly like Nicolas Cage...OR it actually IS Nicolas Cage and he is a vampire that has been alive for well over a hundred years!!

When Zhang Nan went to his local spa for a treatment,Â he decided on the exotic "eel exfoliating treatment".Â Â You strip naked and then slip into a large tub full of live eels.Â Â The eels then nibble on any dead skin on your body.Â Unfortunately for Zhang...one of the eels crawled into his most private of areas and had to be surgically removed.Â Â Owie, owie, owie, owie!
That's exactly what happened to this poor moose in Sweden.Â She apparently gorged on fermented apples...got drunk...and then tried to climb a tree!Â Â Rescue workers were able to safely remove her and she is going to be just fine; a little hungover, but just fine!
This little cutie was born in China and he is doing quite well! His owner is planning to save him from becoming someone's dinner, since he is so cute. Clearly in this case, two heads are better than one!
Residents of a small town in Guatemala have reported seeing several strange crafts flying above in the night sky. And now some farmers are fearing that space aliens may have mated with some of their pigs. This piglet was just born and it is said to look to be part pig and part space alien. I think they just might need a better camera!
And you thought YOU were having a rough day!Â Â This poor fella dropped his pruing sheers in his garden...when he bent over to pick them up, he lost his balance and fell straight onto the sheers impaling his eye socket with one of the handles.Â Â Â Miraculously, doctors were able to remove the sheers, rebuild his eye socket, and save his eye.Â He is expected to make a full recovery!

Parents in Kyoto, Japan take their ill-mannered children for a ride on this very spooky train. The kids are told that if they don't behave, they will not be able to leave the train. It apparently works!
This species of frog engages in a very peculiar behavior called "mouth-brooding". The males in the species take the fertilized eggs and put them into their mouths where they develop in their vocal sacs. When it is time for them to be hatched,the males basically vomit the offspring into the world.
Police in Dallas, Texas are looking for this person wanted for the robbery of a convenience store. The crook was wearing what appears to be a short dress and is using tighty whiteys to conceal his identity.
Harvard scientists have successfully altered chicken DNA which has caused chicks to develop much more like they did millions of years ago. Instead of a sweet little chicken beak....they are hatching with long, toothy snouts!!
Here is how a normal chick looks when it hatches
This is how the genetically altered chick likely looks
Tired of trying to sleep in uncomfortable airport chairs every time your flight is late or it is canceled?Â Â Soon you may be able to put a few bucks into one of these "sleep vending machines" and get some quality rest!
Well sort of...Marion Laval Jeantet is a French "artist" and several months ago she began injecting her bodywith small doses of horse immunoglobulins, the glycoproteins that flow through the blood and function as antibodies in immune response. Then for her art exhibit, she injected herself with horse plasma. And since her body had become used to the horse proteins, her body did not reject the plasma; instead it bonded with it causing Marion to become (a teensy tiny) part horse! Oh how I do love art!
This mysterious gooey substance just appeared out of nowhere in the tiny Alaskan village of Kivalina. It is now covering most of the shoreline and it has scientists and even long-time residents stumped. Tests show that the goo is billions of microscopic eggs....but of WHAT? Scientists don't know what species the eggs are...and they don't know if they are going to hatch! I think I'd leave town!!
Meet Kerri. She is a trim, 23 year-old woman who has no problem fitting into her size 10 jeans...that is until she eats something. Then she bloats up and appears pregnant! Doctors are baffled by her condition.
Rachel and Tony Fisher had been driving along in Memphis when all of a sudden a snake appeared on their windscreen -- obviously prompting them to reach for the video camera. Hey I have an idea...next time it happens, STOP YOUR DAMN CAR AT LET IT CRAWL OFF!!
These beautiful birds aren't just pretty...they have an amazing talent! Instead of a normal cock-a-doodle-doo, they make a sound similar to a human laughing! And they often sell for thousands of dollars!!
He was arrested in Utah on a minor charge and would have just been issued a citation.Â Â But he refuses to give his name.Â Â He is said to be well-spoken and well-educated...he just won't tell anyone who he is...and he has now been in jail for over a month!
This is a sonar image of a bizarre object located on the floor of the Baltic Sea. It is approximately 60 feet in diameter and it is COMPLETELY round. And to make things even more interesting...there are tracks leading up to it that stretch over 300 feet; as if it was moving and then came to a rest in its current location!
A young couple from the Czech Republic were foraging for mushrooms deep in a forest and they stumbled upon this GIANT ball of ice!Â Â And there were no footprints in the surrounding mud which would indicate someone had rolled it there...which would have been impossible anyway since this thing weighs tons!!Â Â Where the heck did it come from?
A woman in Guatemala City woke up to a loud band and when her family searched the house, they found that a sinkhole had opened up under her BED!!! I'd rather find monsters under my bed than a 40 feet deep sinkhole!!!

It must be bad enough to be born with two heads...but when you and your other head just don't like each other...well that's just plain awful! Zookeepers have to separate the heads with a piece of cardboard when these guys eat or they'll fight with each other!
It's the most mechanically accurate robot mouth ever, with an air pump to simulate lungs, artificial vocal chords, a resonance tube, a nasal cavity, and a microphone attached to a sound analyzer. It listens to itself and uses a learning algorithm to better mimic the sounds of human speech.
Nyo Tai Mori which means in Japanese literally means âfemale body plateâ, and this restaurant named after the tradition of eating sushi and sashimi off a nude womanâs body takes the concept to a whole new level. An edible body, with dough âskinâ and sauce âbloodâ is wheeled into the room on a hospital gurney and placed upon a table. The hostess begins the meal by cutting into the body with a scalpel and then patrons dig in, operating on the body to reveal edible âorgansâ.
This place is called Modern Toilet...you can probably figure out why!
This hotspot is called At Home and it promises to satisfy all of your "maid fantasies"!
At Pitch Black restaurant in Beijing,Â the restaurant is so dark you cannot see your hand in front of your face.Â Â Only the servers wear night-vision goggles!
But this last spot is my favorite!Â Â Â The restaurant is called Kayabuki and you just have to check out their servers!!
OK people...listen up. If you ever happen to encounter a Sasquatch...please do your best to hold the camera steady!! Thank you!
A new Bigfoot movie popped up on YouTube Monday, this time from Kansas, not normally a hotbed of Sasquatch activity. The video is, as usual, very shaky. Why can’t people learn how to use a camera when they shoot these things? Maybe they’re truly scared?
The one-minute video shows a loping “creature” passing from tree to tree as a family shoots from the other side of a fenced-in area. The quick glimpses of the mystery cryptid recall the film that started it all, the Roger Patterson movie.
Take a good whiff of Mr. Kailash Singh. He was told by a priest on his wedding day that if he wanted to someday have a son, he was to not shave, cut his hair or wash his body until the day his son was born. That was 37 years ago and although he has seven daughters he still does not have a son...so no baths for him!
Meet Millie Brown.Â Â She is a successful artist who has sold pieces of her work for several thousands of dollars.Â Â But you won't believe how she "paints" her art:Â she drinks colored milk and then vomits on the canvas.Â Â She was even featured in a Lady Gaga video vomiting all over her dress.Â Â Â Delightful!
Nguyne Duy Hai has made it into the record books and for that he is very proud!Â He has the largest tumor growing on his body ever recorded.Â It weighs over 173 pounds and is over three feet wide. Â He has named it "my big friend".Â

It's called the T-Rex Leech (above) and it was just discovered living in a teenage girls nasal cavity! She apparently picked it up after swimming in a South American river.Â Â Check out the pic below...this is the jaw and teeth of the T Rex Leech!
This video is allegedly from a family hiking near the Spokane River...when they watched the video more closely from home, they found a little something extra in the background. What do you think it is?
OSTRICH offers a micro environment in which to take a warm and comfortable power nap at ease. It is neither a pillow nor a cushion, nor a bed, nor a garment, but a bit of each at the same time. Its soothing cave-like interior shelters and isolates our head and hands (mind, senses and body) for a few minutes, without needing to leave our desk.
My name is Aquarius and I'm looking for a warm lap to lie on. It takes me a little time to trust new people in new places, but give me a bit and we'll be great friends. That's probably how I will greet most new people, but I've heard it's a somewhat...
