A Family Brought A Raccoon To An Animal Shelter, But Wait ‘Til You See Her…

You’re not alone if this is the first image that comes to mind when raccoons are mentioned. Sneaky little rascals… But as it turns out, not all of the feisty critters are quite so stealthy. Take this little lady who was brought in to an animal shelter in Seaforth, Nova Scotia, Canada. While her blonde hair and beautiful brown eyes might make you think fox or oversized cat, take a second look… She seems way too classy and dignified to make off with the cat food or go digging through garbage. But, raccoons will be raccoons. As vet tech Chelsea Pullen noted in the video, if you want to get the sneaky guys off your property, just blast some rock and shine some lights…though, we can’t promise this won’t happen.

Muhammad Ali Was More Than Just A Boxer...He Was A Hero, Too

Muhammad Ali Was More Than Just A Boxer…He Was A Hero, Too

There are many wonderful — nay, great things we could say about the late Muhammad Ali. He was a boxer, a poet, a champion for those with Parkinson’s…but to many, he was also a hero. He famously spoke out against racism saying, “Hating people because of their color is wrong and it doesn’t matter which color does the hating, it’s just plain wrong.” Wikimedia Commons The boxer, nicknamed The Greatest, also famously refused to go to war in Vietnam. Citing religious reasons for not wanting to fight — Ali had converted to Islam when he was just 22 — the man spoke out saying, “Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go 10,000 miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on [Vietnamese] people while [African Americans] in Louisville are treated like dogs.” Wikimedia Commons But what many people don’t realize is how much of an […]

Cheesy Mashed Potato Spring Rolls Are The Best Snack Ever

Cheesy Mashed Potato Spring Rolls Are The Best Snack Ever

If I had to choose a favorite side, anything with potatoes would probably be it. But if you forced me to narrow it down further, it’d be a tie between french fries and mashed potatoes.

13 Awesomely Unique Ways You Can Use Chalk

I Never Knew You Could Do Some Many Things With Hydrogen Peroxide

I Never Knew You Could Do Some Many Things With Hydrogen Peroxide

I still remember how much I hated getting cuts and scrapes as a kid…because they meant my mom would douse the spot with hydrogen peroxide and that arguably hurt more!

Moses The Otter Plays With Lions And Hyenas — But His Story Wasn’t Always So Happy

When Moses was just a few weeks old, he found himself in a precarious position. Abandoned on the side of the river, the tiny Cape clawless otter had no mom or dad to care for him. When a friendly police officer found him, the little guy weighed less than one pound! Not knowing how to nurse the baby back to good health, he brought Moses to Annel Snyman at Loebies Guest Farm and Predator Park.

They Began Singing In A High School Hallway And She Immediately Started Crying

We don’t realize it, but our high school teachers meet us during some of our most formative years. That’s why, if you think really hard, you can probably come up with one in particular who played a huge role in making you the person you are today.

In fact, according to the Natural Resouces Defense Council, “30 percent of the world’s crops and 90 percent of our wild plants” depend on the black and yellow cross pollinators. But you certainly wouldn’t know their numbers are dwindling or that they’re more concerned with working than rising up against us by the looks of this video… Yeah, that’s more than a little concerning.

A Few Hilarious Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Take Your Baby Black Friday Shopping

Thanksgiving is great — you’re surrounded by family, friends, and copious amounts of food.

Others feed off the excitement, setting their alarms for 3 a.m. in an effort to be the first in line at the register. But adults aren’t the only ones who experience this struggle — just look at how some kids react: On second thought, if you are heading to the stores this Friday, I’d suggest paying a few extra bucks for that babysitter…unless you plan on recording the whole thing, in which case, send us the hilarious clips!

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); I hate wasting food so I try to freeze things when I find that I won’t be able to cook them for a while. But getting that air-tight seal is almost impossible without one of those fancy vacuum machines. I’ve tried it all — sucking the air out manually, using a straw, squishing the bag until the air leaves…but nothing really works. Ultimately, when I go to get my frozen food out, often it’s got freezer burn! But now that I know this super quick water trick, I’ll never have that issue again. This is seriously genius. Thanks, science! YouTube / ViralNova googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); }); Will you use this trick the next time you freeze something? It’s so simple!

A Handy Dad Shows Us How To Make A Simple Playhouse From Pallets — Awesome!

Getting your kids to go outside and play can be like pulling teeth. Unless you have a sweet swing set, a cool pool, or some awesome outdoor toys, they’re more likely to want to stay indoors where there’s no dirt and plenty of snacks.

Well, one dad came up with a genius idea that involved just a few wooden pallets and two days of work.

What He Finds Dumpster Diving Will Make You Sick — But Not For The Reason You’d Expect

Have you ever thrown out food because it said it was past its “sell by” date? What about your leftovers at a fancy restaurant? According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, in 2008, 43 billion pounds of food were thrown out by retail locations (grocery stores) and 86 billion pounds were disposed of by households and food service operations (restaurants, cafeterias, fast food, and caterers). That’s nearly 130 billion pounds of food. But what does that really translate to? Comedian Jeff Seal took to the streets of New York City — a place where the cost of living is the fifth highest in the world and the homelessness problem is undeniable — to find out.

Brian Pankratz was enjoying an uneventful afternoon with his daughter in their backyard when he heard something rustling by their fence. When he went to investigate the disturbance, he was alarmed to find a helpless doe stuck quite literally between a rock and a hard place.
