Rosie Kemp, a resident of Nassau, Bahamas, discovered a baby raccoon that had fallen out of a tree with the mother was nowhere to be found. So, instead of just leaving it there, Kemp and her daughter Laura Young decided to adopt the tiny animal and named her "Pumpkin". According to Young, "She instantly bonded with us and our two rescue dogs and follows me and our two dogs everywhere we go. She now thinks she is a dog...she is able to play and be rough with them and she respects them when they have had enough." Continue reading for more pictures and information.
Honda may have sourced the body from the production HF2620 mower, but the 309-pound Mean Mower is anything but underneath. Featuring a custom suspension, with wheels taken from an ATV, it's powered by a VTR Firestorm 1,000cc engine that produces 106-horsepower, mated to a paddle-shifted six-speed transmission. The best part? It can go from 0-60mph in a mere 4-seconds, and has an estimated top speed of 130mph, making it the world's fastest. Continue reading for two more videos and additional information.
You could either use a phone or tablet while lying down on your side, or prop a laptop up, connect a wireless mouse, and click away, like this person. One problem, using the keyboard is still next to impossible due to the angle, but voice control might be another option. That is just one of the many acts of extreme laziness captured for the entire internet to see, other examples include: a homemade pliers razor, sitting on an office chair box and more.

So far, there are 46 U.S. states that have been texting while driving, but having a highway billboard stating "texting while driving kills" and offering driving tips by texting is a bit strange. Unfortunately, that is just one of the many unintentionally ironic things you'll see on a daily basis. Others include: a 50 Cent album priced at $.50, a bird resting on a "no birds" sign, crushed tomatoes in a smashed can, and lots more. Continue reading to see them all.
The "Leaf" is touted as the "world's first plug n' play cannabis growing system", and it promises to making growing quality cannabis a breeze at home. Looking just like a small fridge, this device delivers real-time metrics - including pH level, plant height, water level, and air temperature - to your phone via the Leaf mobile app during the entire growing process. One problem, it'll set you back $1,500. Continue reading to see what the "Leaf" looks like in a home, and for a preview of the app.
The Catatumbo Lightning atmospheric phenomenon in Venezuela, occurs only over the mouth of the Catatumbo River where it empties into Lake Maracaibo. The frequent, powerful flashes of lightning over this relatively small area are considered to be the world's largest single generator of tropospheric ozone. It originates from a mass of storm clouds at a height of more than 5 km, and occurs during 140 to 160 nights a year, 10 hours per day and up to 280 times per hour. It occurs over and around Lake Maracaibo, typically over the bog area formed where the Catatumbo River flows into the lake. Continue reading for two more videos and additional information.
This isn't a crashed UFO, but rather a real Volcano House built atop a real volcano in Barstow, California, overlooking the Mojave Desert. Located approximately 45-minutes east of Barstow, next to a small lake, it features a unique dome-like design, complete with shiny silver metal accents on top to give it an other worldly feel. There's two bedrooms, two bathrooms, all of which have tile floors and tall, curved ceilings. Unlike other homes out in the desert, this one has a separate garage and apartment at the bottom. Click here to view the first image in this week's funny work pictures gallery. Continue reading for a viral video of the toughest Super Mario Maker level yet.
Berkeley Lab Researchers have created a groundbreaking new invisibility cloak made of near-microscopic brick-shaped gold nano antennas. Unlike previous models, this cloak works almost as well as a perfectly flat mirror by reflecting light in such a way that makes it seem like the cloak and the 3D object it's hiding have vanished, even the edges. Continue reading for two more videos and additional information.
A meteorite is essentially a solid piece of debris from a source such as an asteroid or a comet, which originates in outer space and survives its impact with the Earth's surface. It is called a meteoroid before its impact. Meteorites have traditionally been divided into three broad categories: stony meteorites are rocks, mainly composed of silicate minerals; iron meteorites that are largely composed of metallic iron-nickel; and, stony-iron meteorites that contain large amounts of both metallic and rocky material. The images above show what iron meteorites look like when cut in half. Continue reading for more cool facts.
Just like everything else on the internet, people tend to over exaggerate things, such as this bizarre cloud formation spotted over Escazu, Costa Rica. Joey Petit, a local, told ABC News that his family were at a playground when Airle, his 11-year-old son, noticed the odd formations in the clouds. "He immediately grabbed the camera and started taking video and photos. We were just so amazed. We had no idea what it was and we'd never seen anything like it," said his father.
