Dubstep Cat
There are two kinds of people in the world. The ones that make their cats dance and the ones that don't have cats. This guy, however does have a cat and he made it dance. That has got to be the most chill cat in the world!

According the the description on the youtube video, "He was a stray that my room mate took in and we take care of him at our apartment. He is the chillest cat ever, especially for a stray! He is the friendliest cat I have ever met and loves attention from people. Some have speculated that I was harming him in this video, but I know my relationship with him, and trust me, he was fine playing like this, and I didn't harm him in any way. My friend and I were listening to dubstep and playing with our cat and he started to make him dance, so, we decided to film it."

South Florida Running Out of Sand
South Florida's eroding beaches have been happening for a while but now it's becoming a serious problem. The state known for it's sunny beaches are running out of sand fast due to erosion from storms and tides, a rising sea level and man-made structures like jetties that have been built on beaches, causing sand to build up on only one side of the structure.

According to the New York Times, the Florida communities have been replenishing their beaches by dredging up off shore sand for decades. Even the sand gathered from that, however, is quickly disappearing as well. 

Watch the video below to to see what solution the State of Florida has come up with to solve their sand problem.

32 is The Magic Age In Which We Turn Into Our Parents?


We all know it's going to happen one of these days. We start saying things or doing things that remind us of our parents whether we like it or not. Only now it seems that we can finally put an average starting age for when the big change happens! 
 

According to parenting website Netmoms, the age of 32 is the point in which people are most likely to have irrevocably crossed the line from rebellious youth to being a younger copy of their own mother or father.
 

By the time the average citizen is into their mid 30's, most have found themselves echoing phrases or mannerisms which once made them wince as teenagers and vow never to replicate, it concludes. The pressures of career, buying a house, and particularly having children are the main triggers to the change.

Protesting sheep?!
I think the fact that this guy is yelling at a whole bunch of sheep is even funnier than the sheep answering back.

Wow, just wow. What this guys just can either be explained as talent or too much time on his hands. Well either way what he did in this video is just incredible! He didn't even pause to think of the next line once in the whole video!

His name is Christopher Rosa and he Is a new intern for a movie website when he was faced with the challenge of reciting the whole screenplay to Mean Girls!

Man Teaches Mice to Skateboard



I can't believe what I am seeing here. three years ago, Mice owner Shane Willmott wowed the world with his surfing mice. I guess surfing mice got boring for him though so he switched to training his mice to skateboard! 
 
His fearless mice Harvey and Pedro take on ramps, half-pipes and even the ring of fire!
 

 

 

 

Mr Willmott has been training mice to surf for nearly 30 years. "They love it," he said. "Mice are built to surf and skate because their center of gravity is so low. When they do fall off, they want to get straight back on the board."

Dead Shark Found in New York Subway Train


Commuters on board a New York subway discovered a dead one-and-a-half-foot shark on the floor under a row of seats around midnight! 
 

The 10 pound shark was said to not be dead for very long since it was still wet with blood around the mouth. Passengers took lots of photographs before the conductor evacuated the carriage and disposed of the shark.
 

Commuter Mary M told gothamist.com, "I board a car that's not terribly full and as soon as I enter, a stench hits my nose. It's not the typical urine/trash smell, it's. . .fishy? I look down to the end of the car to see a dead shark on the floor. I think I stood there for a good minute just staring, thinking 'Is this for real?!'" 
 

No one has been able to identify where the shark came from but some speculators think that the appearance of the shark was a publicity stunt for Discovery Channel's "Shark Week". However, the Discovery Channel denies any involvement.

The 22-person town of Dorset, Minnesota picks its mayors every year out of a hat. Anyone can vote for mayor as long as you pay $1 to put your vote in the mayor picking hat. Yes that even means people who live outside of the town! 
 
Three year old Bobbie Tufts was the one to win and now he has just been re-elected at the age of 4! Sadly, since the town of dorset is so small it lost its town status by the government so now all the real decisions are made by the few businessess around the area.
