This Guy Shone A Laser At A POLICE Helicopter. It Didn’t End Well…

10/30/14 6:23 pm

The drink must have got too much for this guy in England, who thought it would be fun to shine a laser pen at a passing police helicopter. Shining lasers at any aircraft is illegal and extremely dangerous as it can temporarily blind the pilot and put lives at serious risk. That didn’t seem to be of any concern to the shaven-headed man and his friends as they sat around drinking outside. But little did they know that the police were immediately tracking him with super-sensitive heat-seeking cameras, and directing officers on the ground round to spoil his party. I never knew police helicopters could pick up so much detail. […]

10/29/14 6:31 pm

These firefighters in Arizona got an unusual call when a local man asked for help when his horse got trapped — in his swimming pool. The horse, called Stormy, couldn’t get out after falling asleep. A vet tranquillised him and firefighters were then able to keep his head above water and pull him from the pool. Perhaps he’d just fancied a swim… Good news. Stormy is said to be doing well and no worse for wear after his swim.

This Woman Walks Through NYC For 10hrs. The Harassment She Receives Is Shocking.

10/29/14 5:30 pm

Women are subjected to verbal harassment in the street on a daily basis, from wolf-whistles to winks and inappropriate glances. But this video shows just how bad it can be. The footage shows a normal woman walking through New York City for 10 hours, wearing regular jeans and a crewneck t-shirt, and just generally going about her business. But the amount of harassment she gets — more than 100 instances — is shocking. Not only that, but some of it is downright creepy, with men she’s never met following her relentlessly along the street for several minutes. No woman should have to put up with this. Now imagine what it […]

10/28/14 6:18 pm

Everyone needs to wash their clothes, even homeless people. And two 20-year-old guys from Brisbane, Australia, set out to do something about that. Meet Lucas and Nic, the founders of Orange Sky Laundry. Two big-hearted guys who came up with an amazing idea. Lucas Patchett and Nicholas Marchesi wanted to help people less fortunate than themselves, and also provide an outlet for 18-30 year olds who wanted to help the community but find it hard discovering volunteering opportunities. So they decided to convert a normal old van into a free mobile washing service for the homeless people in the area they live. They did all the work themselves, and have now […]

These Might Look Like Dogs But They Are Actually Stealth Ninjas

10/27/14 6:19 pm

Border Collie sheep dogs are probably the most intelligent of all dogs. And what better way to exercise your smartness than by playing pranks on your sheepdog pals. These two mischievous friends look like something out of a cartoon as they creep up on another dog, showing off their ninja skills. In full stealth mode they creep through the grass behind another dog without him noticing. I love the anticipation as they move up to him in what looks like slow motion. Wait for 1.35. It brightened my day! Via A Sheepdog Diary
