VIRAL VIDEOS!

THE PEEP SHOOT-A-THON
Marshmallow peeps and other Easter candy try to stand up to a .50-caliber rifle.

------------------------------------------------
FIREFIGHTER FUN
The water pressure from fire hoses is so great that these Russian firefighters were able to use them to create a hovercraft.

-------------------------------------------------------------
TIMBER BY BARACK AND HILLARY
Barack and Hillary sing Pitbull and Kesha's "Timber." Yeah, OK, it's another one of those videos where someone spliced together a bunch of clips. But it's still really funny!

 -------------------------------------------------------------
GREAT ANIMAL IMPERSONATIONS
This talented guy does 30 animal sounds. His neighbors must really appreciate his talent.

 ----------------------------------------------------
DANCERS FROM BRITAIN'S GOT TALENT
An unusual dance pair left Britain's Got Talent judges and audience members stunned. Watching an 80-year-old woman tossed around without breaking anything will do that.

-------------------------------------------------------------
WORST WHEEL OF FORTUNE CONTESTANT EVER
A contestant named Julian has gone viral for being spectacularly bad at the game. Julian, from Indiana University, did very little to make his school look good. Julian missed a few easy opportunities to solve puzzles, including one that had all the letters turned around -- all he had to do was read it correctly. That amazing flub cost him a shot at $1-million. He missed another easy one that would have won him a car. But at least this poor Hoosier will never forget how to pronounce Achilles.

-----------------------------------------------
SANDUSKY PROUD?
Sandusky resident Derek Kimberlin aka TBMA has a song and video about his hometown.

-------------------------------------------------------------
MORE DAREDEVIL STUNTS IN MID-AIR
A group of Ukrainian daredevils, who earlier this year posted a breathtaking video of themselves climbing on very high and narrow things without a harness, have posted a new video that is just so hard to watch. But you will anyway because now you're very curious.

FOOTBALL TEAM HELPS COACH WITH HIS PROPOSAL
Football teams aren't often thought of as romantic, but a coach for a Texas high school team changed that recently. Justin Outten is the offensive coordinator for Houston's Westfield High and he used the team to pull off an elaborate marriage proposal for his girlfriend.

--------------------------------------------------
GARBAGE MAN SHOWS THE TRUE MEANING OF MULTI-TASKING
This garbage collector in Mexico picks up trash like a champ. Oh, and he's also the driver of the truck.

---------------------------------------------------------
BEST FAN CATCH OF THE YEAR...SO FAR
A Pittsburgh Pirates fan traded in his snack for a foul ball when he used his popcorn bucket to catch it. It's a good thing he spent the extra $8 and got the large bucket instead of the small.

----------------------------------------------------------
MESSAGES OF HATE MADE INTO MESSAGE OF LOVE
Last month, food company Honey Maid launched its "This is Wholesome" ad campaign showing all types of families, including a two-father family. Honey Maid immediately received negative feedback and hate messages from some people, so they decided to make this new ad to respond to the hate.

A near-record crowd of over 2,000 gobbled up 1,070 pizzas from 13 area restaurants, and raised an estimated $10,000 for Rotary Clothes Kids.  If the total holds, that means the Rotary has rasied about $135,000 in the last 15 years to buy clothes for needy kids in the area.  Here's some pictures from the guest judging:

SEE THE AFFECTS OF DRINKING IN A NEW SMARTPHONE APP
There’s a new app out there that shows you what will happen to your face if you don’t stop drinking like you’re in college. To use the “Drinking Mirror” app, all you have to do is upload a picture of yourself and then plug in how much and how frequently you drink in a given week. The app then calculates how your boozing will affect your appearance. Depending on how much you’re drinking, the picture that comes back is a pudgy, sun-damaged, sickly version of your face. Other than a red nose and cheeks and a couple of wrinkles, it's hard to see much of a difference in my pix: (Click picture for larger image)

ARE LEGOS SEXIST?
One dad isn’t too happy with the LEGO Company right now, and it’s all because of what he felt was a sexist sticker. Apparently LEGOs had a set of construction worker-themed stickers, and one of them featured a little construction worker waving, with the words, “Hey Babe!” under him.  And while the company intended for this to be “humorous,” the dad wrote letters of complaint until the company made it clear that the stickers had been discontinued.

HACKENBURG FAILS TO SET RECORD
Perkins firefighter Brian Hackenburg was planning to set a new Guinness World Record for fastest in full firefighter gear. Unfortunately, the snow, slush, and ice was too bad on the course for the fire boots he was required to wear. He had to pass other runners in snow drifts because the course never got plowed. He says he will try to set the world record again when the weather gets better..

TORNADO VICTIM APPEARS TO FAMILY IN A PICTURE

A Moore Oklahoma family lost their son in the tornados this spring, but they believe they've seen him since his death and they are not alone. In a picture of a little girl with a sparkler, Scott McCabe saw his son Nicholas behind the girl. He explained that Nicolas loved the Fourth of July and he loved firecrackers. This past July 4th, Nicolas' cousin, Madison, had to play alone - at least that was what the family thought until a cell phone picture. McCabe said he sees two distinct figures in the photo with different skin tones and different facial features. He believes it is Nicolas behind Madison. Nicolas was buried in his red Plaza Towers T-shirt. McCabe said he can make out a red T-shirt on the figure behind Madison. See it for yourself.  (CLICK THE PICTURE TO SEE A LARGER VIEW)

New Online Trend is “Unicorning”
It wasn’t that long ago that everyone was planking and posting pictures of themselves planking on social media sites. Then, planking was replaced by Tebowing. The latest trend is to wear a unicorn mask in unique situations and, of course, post a picture. The fans of this trend are known as the “Unicorn Army” and there’s even a website for the movement at UnicornArmy.com.

ENGINEERS STUDY URINAL SPLASHING
A bunch of engineering students at Brigham Young University have applied the laws of physics to urinal splashing in hopes of helping guys perfect their aim. The researchers used a simulated urine stream and, using high-speed video, recorded how it reacted to hitting various surfaces. By examining the splash-back, the team was able to formulate a set of suggestions for keeping the mess to a minimum. You should always aim for a vertical surface – and avoiding the water bowl. And, aim at a sideways or downward angle. Important life lesson. Good to know. (CNET.com)
