Russians Show How NOT To Rescue A Cat. You Won’t Believe How They Do It.

Russians have a knack at making more bizarre YouTube videos than the rest of us. It’s nothing to do with they way they film them. It’s just that what happens in Russia seems to be just that bit more bizarre. Take dashcam videos. Russian ones always win hands down, we all know that. So this poor cat was pretty much destined for trouble when some Russians tried to rescue him and someone switched on a camera. You have got to be kidding me. Share this with your friends. It’ll make their day Via cadko2000 H/T: fledermausman

At First I Thought This Was Just A Normal Town. Then I Realized What I was Seeing. Whoa!

Michael Paul Smith loves mid-20th century America. He loves the old cars and the old vistas. He also loves making models and photography. So he combined the three and what he came up with is one of the most beautiful visual representations of American nostalgia you will ever see. Michael builds exact 1/24th replicas of buildings and landscapes, adds miniature vehicles to create realistic scenes, and then takes a simple point-and-shoot camera. Setting them against real-life backgrounds he creates a miniature world that looks so real you wouldn’t know otherwise unless you saw the behind-the-scenes pics as well. As Michael says on his website, “it’s the oldest trick in the […]
