This Guy Literally Has Superhands, And He Puts Them To Good Use

This Guy Literally Has Superhands, And He Puts Them To Good Use

A street-corner chef named Kann Trichan was selling chicken in Chiang Mai, the largest city in northern Thailand, when a squirrel fell into one of his bubbling-hot frying pans. It splashed the oil all over his face and arms. Naturally, he went home to nurse his wounds. But the next day, he found that he had no burns or blisters. Now calling himself “Superhands,” Trichan’s corner business is extremely popular, as it’s part food cart, part street performance. The man dazzles customers by frying his hens and sticking his hands deep in the scorching-hot liquid. Usually, I’d prefer that people touch my food with their hands as little as possible, but honestly, when it comes to Superhands, I’m more impressed than disgusted. How is this possible?

These People Volunteered To Go To Jail For Two Months, And This Is What Happened

These People Volunteered To Go To Jail For Two Months, And This Is What Happened

Recently, President Obama made a historic visit the El Reno Federal Correctional Institution in Oklahoma in an effort to highlight problems with how we deal with crime in our country. It is the first time that a sitting president has visited an American prison. And in the same vein, a new show on A&E called 60 Days In takes seven regular citizens into custody for a two-month period. It may sound like a nightmare waiting to happen, but it’s an effort on the part of Sheriff Jamey Noel of Clark County, Indiana, to understand the deeper problems faced by the criminal justice system today. To participate in the experiment, 7 volunteers, who have committed no crimes, spend two months in Clark County Jail. Both fellow inmates and guards believe them to be convicted criminals. YouTube / A&E The show is produced by Sheriff Jamey Noel, who says that citizen volunteers […]

When A Tornado Hit An Indiana High School, It Was A Miracle That No One Was Inside

Henryville Junior-Senior High in Indiana is home to 500 students, ranging from seventh graders all the way up to seniors. Luckily, they weren’t in the building on March 2, 2012, when a massive tornado eviscerated it. The following footage is from a security camera in the gym. In a matter of seconds, the entire place was destroyed. And here’s the tornado hitting other parts of the school. According to Indy Star, the disaster caused $1 billion worth of damage to the area. The school was the first thing to be rebuilt — it reopened after just six months. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/henryville-tornado/

When She Sees What The Humans Are Doing, This Pup Decides To Join The Fun!

Ask any dog and it’ll tell you humans have a hard time appreciating the fun things in life. We eat the most delicious food and yet we insist on using weird tools instead of just digging in. We drive cars but never want to stick our heads out the window. And the real kicker? We own houses but only go to the bathroom in ONE room! Well, Titti the Jack Russell terrier has no problem taking the reins and showing her human friends how to kick back and let loose. When it comes to this particular swimming hole in Malta, Italy, this daredevil dog thinks people should be — you guessed it — swimming, not sunning! Titti, who’s now seven, and her owner Carmelo Abela have become quite the tourist attraction at St. Peter’s Pool in Malta. I hope Titti inspires you to appreciate life as much as a dog […]

They Threw This Goat In A Tiger's Den To Be Food  But What Happened Is So Awesome

They Threw This Goat In A Tiger’s Den To Be Food But What Happened Is So Awesome

Before goats are thrown into the den of Primorsky Safari Park’s Siberian tiger’s cage, zoo staffers say goodbye. They don’t grow attached or even name them, as the animals are swiftly eaten — it’s the circle of life. All attempts to run by the goats are quickly proven futile as Amur pounces on his prey. But recently, one goat chose a different strategy. Instead of cowering in fear or running, he stood up to the big cat. Strangely, rather than showing the brave goat his great claws, Amur rewarded him with something far…friendlier! Amur is used to getting live game twice a week, but ever since Timur (he was given a name after the two struck up a friendship) bravely stood his ground, Amur only eats raw meat. YouTube/RT The two can often be found meandering side by side in the tiger’s pen. Zookeepers try to separate them, but Amur […]

10 Things Americans Do That Other Countries Find Disgusting (I Had No Idea!)

10 Things Americans Do That Other Countries Find Disgusting (I Had No Idea!)

It’s kind of cool that for the last 240 years, the U.S. has acted like a reckless, young-gun police officer who gets the job done but plays by his own rules (think Mel Gibson in “Lethal Weapon”). But this behavior has caused the rest of the world (like Danny Glover in “Lethal Weapon”) to perceive us as arrogant children who don’t have any respect for history. Because of this, Americans are far more heavily scrutinized than many other tourists, which may not be fair, but it happens. The travel-minded YouTube channel geobeats has compiled some American habits that, for whatever reason, foreigners find offensive. 1. We refer to the United States as America. Flickr / Michael Dougherty South American countries, in particular, take offense to how the U.S. has laid claim to the phrase “America,” as if the rest of the countries in North and South America don’t matter.

This Is Why You Always Ask For Multiple References When You Hire A Contractor…

Redditor warmarrer thought his mom was in good hands when a contractor agreed to build her a deck…but it turns out the builder was going through some serious stuff. Instead of replacing the deck, the hired hand decided to just attach the new boards to the old, rotting ones. Oh, and he also wrote deeply sad things on the wood.

People Are Understandably Freaked Out By The Art Piece That Won This Competition

Perth, Australia, is one of the best places in the world to hang loose and catch a wave, but there is one wave that even the most daring surfers wouldn’t take on — a 10-foot swell that’s made out of 3,000 naked Barbies. Artist Annette Thas entered the “Sculpture by the Sea” competition in Perth with her strange tidal wave, which obliterated childhoods in its wake and won her $4,500 in prize money. Surf’s up!

He Spent 6 Months Teaching Himself To Draw, And By The End, He Was A Master

Drawing is one of those abilities that’s usually a combination of raw talent and learned skill, but Redditor BlenderGuru recently aimed to prove that the latter factor plays a greater role than most people think. His goal? To teach himself how to draw in six months. It started out kind of shaky, but the end results are pretty incredible. While this outcome certainly isn’t typical, it does go to show you that a little dedication can go a long way. Here’s where his journey started. Not the worst, but certainly not the best. Reddit / BlenderGuru For the first two months, he stuck to charcoal drawings to get a handle on form. Reddit / BlenderGuru To be fair, he didn’t start from a place of zero skill. That being said, his rapid progress is impressive. Reddit / BlenderGuru This one looks pretty good, but BlenderGuru says that people only like […]

Keep Kids Learning During Spring Break With These Awesome DIY Science Experiments

Keep Kids Learning During Spring Break With These Awesome DIY Science Experiments

Spring break is almost here for students, but as a parent, you can teach your kid that learning doesn’t have to stop for the Easter bunny. The cool thing about science experiments is that they can be super fun for kids….and adults! Here are some simple but awesome ways to teach kids how the world works! 1. Make a leak-proof bag. Steve Spangler Science Fill a plastic bag with water and stick pencils all the way through both sides. If done correctly, there won’t be any leaks! This is because the bag is made of polymers, which are long chains of molecules that separate instead of breaking. 2. Create “elephant toothpaste.” YouTube / ViralNova Ask your kids if they want to see how elephant’s brush their teeth. Just pour hydrogen peroxide into a bottle, add food coloring, and dish soap. In a separate cup, add yeast and warm water together. […]

This Hero Loves Bacon So Much, He Decided To Cure His Own

How much do you love bacon? No matter how many meals you arbitrarily sprinkle it on, you’re never going to love the savory topper more than Reddit user fourthwardco. When he bought 8.6 pounds of pork, he decided to actually cure his own bacon. As he walks us through the steps, you’ll realize the difference between cooking bacon and curing it is like the difference between babysitting a child and having one of your own. And rest assured, this guy loves his little bacon baby! When fourthwardco bought this 8.6-pound slab of pork at his local butcher, he knew exactly what to do with it.

6 Wrongful Convictions Which Prove That The Avery Case Wasn't The First

6 Wrongful Convictions Which Prove That The Avery Case Wasn’t The First

In 1985, Steven Avery was arrested by the Manitowoc County police department in Wisconsin for the sexual assault of a woman named Penny Beernsten. It wasn’t until 2003, however, that Avery was released from prison after DNA evidence proved that the culprit was another man. Avery is, of course, tied to another case that was made popular by the Netflix series Making a Murderer, and whether or not you believe that Avery committed this particular crime, you have to fault the American justice system for keeping an innocent man incarcerated for 18 years. And this isn’t the first time it’s happened, either. Far from it, in fact. Here are some of the worst wrongful convictions that have ever occurred in the United States. The Salem Witch Trials, 1692. Wikipedia In 17th-century Massachusetts, people feared witchcraft and the dark arts more than anything. The result was the wrongful execution of 20 […]

18 Of The Creepiest Statues Ever Built (Probably To Scare Passersby)

18 Of The Creepiest Statues Ever Built (Probably To Scare Passersby)

For centuries, statues have been crafted by humans to depict our reality…and also to distort it. Even one of the oldest known sculptures, the Löwenmensch figurine or “Lion-Man,” believed to be around 30,000-40,000 years old, doesn’t depict any real person; rather, it’s a zoomorphic being with the body of a human and the head of a lion. Because of this longstanding history, you’d think we’d be used to abstract statues by now. However, as these creepy pieces from around the world prove, the form can still pull the metaphorical rug from under our reality. 1. What’s up, Doc? Reddit / IceStorm7 2.

7 Times The Examination Of Bodies Led To The Discovery Of Ancient Crimes

7 Times The Examination Of Bodies Led To The Discovery Of Ancient Crimes

Archaeology may not be the swashbuckling, adventurous endeavor that the Indiana Jones franchise would have us believe, but it can have its spooky moments. Sure, archaeologists don’t usually get into bar fights with Nazis over ancient relics, but they do have to deal with a lot of skeletons. Piecing together the lives and deaths of those who lived thousands of years ago is an important part of the job, and every once in a while, they come across an ancient death with disturbingly dark story. Here are a few of the weirdest archaeological finds of all time. The Headless Vikings Wikipedia In 2009, a mass grave of 51 Viking warriors from the first and second centuries A.D. was discovered in England. It is believed that the Vikings were executed by Anglo-Saxons after traveling from far-flung nations. Why were they there? No one really knows for sure. Colorado Genocide Getty Images […]

This Picturesque Greek Town Is Slowly Sliding Down The Side Of A Hill

This Picturesque Greek Town Is Slowly Sliding Down The Side Of A Hill

Once a bustling town in Thessaly, Greece, Ropoto is now a ghost town. What happened to this locale to make it so desolate? Well, in 2012, a landslide caused homes and buildings to cascade down the side of a hill, displacing 300 families in the process. The 12-minute documentary Ropoto: Greece’s Sinking Ghost Town details what happened on the day of the landslide, reveals that the sinking continues to happen, and sheds light on the unwillingness of the Greek government to help its own people. As you walk through Ropoto, you might confuse it with the set of a disaster movie. Indeed, the town is still reeling from the effects of the real-life disaster that changed everything 4 years ago. YouTube / Greek Reporter Due to poor drainage, townspeople always relied on specialized machines to move the water around. But when the machines didn’t do their job in 2011, it […]

Are You The Mother Of An Alien Hybrid Baby? There's A Support Group For That

Are You The Mother Of An Alien Hybrid Baby? There’s A Support Group For That

Facebook is a great place for people with similar interests or experiences to interact, and the specificity of these online groups can sometimes be wonderfully bizarre. Take the Hybrid Children Facebook community, for instance. This group was created with the purpose of connecting alien half-breed children with their human parents. You see, the members of this group believe an advanced race of aliens bred with humans, harvested their eggs, and their children now reside in another dimension…at least until they can return. Members of the Hybrid Children community believe that at some point, an alien race called the Zeta Reticuli came down, impregnated them, and harvested the eggs before leaving. Facebook / Hybrid Children The Zetas are sometimes known by ufologists as the “Grays,” in reference to their trademark gray skin. Supposedly, the hybrid children live in another dimension and can only be communicated with through their human moms’ dreams. […]

Workers Found This Old, Terrifying Ouija Board Stuffed Into A Crawl Space

Workers Found This Old, Terrifying Ouija Board Stuffed Into A Crawl Space

While working on a house one day, some builders discovered an old Ouija board hidden in a wall behind a heating vent…which is probably the worst thing that one could possibly find in a house that’s over 100 years old. Redditor Falco_Columbarius was working on the house, and he was pretty freaked out when he found the decades-old board. I kind of want to know how the spirit-summoning board got there, but at the same time, I don’t want to know at all. Reddit / Falco_Columbarius Ouija boards were introduced commercially to America in 1890, and even though they were intended to serve as parlor games, they’ve since gained a pretty occult reputation. You know what they say about Ouija boards — you can use them to summon spirits, but you can’t send the spirits back. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/ouija-board-found/

In A Desperate Attempt To Keep A Girlfriend, This Doctor Created A Soundproof Bunker

In A Desperate Attempt To Keep A Girlfriend, This Doctor Created A Soundproof Bunker

According to his patients and colleagues, the Swedish doctor in this story was always appreciated for his professionalism, which is why what he did seems all the more shocking. He’s being charged for the kidnapping and rape of a woman, which took place after he sedated her and brought her to his isolated, self-made bunker. Although he seemed stable and secure to those who knew him professionally, he secretly pined for a girlfriend…and plotted a dreadful scheme to get one. The lonely 38-year-old doctor had apparently been planning an abduction for several years, which is evidenced by the fact that he built a soundproof bunker near his country house in Kristianstad, Sweden. Swedish Police He disguised himself as an American, and while on a second date with a woman, he gifted her some strawberries. Little did she know that they were laced with sedatives.

He Misbehaved Like Any Kid, But His Parents' Punishment Cost Him His Life

He Misbehaved Like Any Kid, But His Parents’ Punishment Cost Him His Life

When kids misbehave, parents sometimes temporarily take away something they enjoy but don’t necessarily need. Video games, ice cream, their cellphones…but when 10-year-old Johnathan James did something his parents disapproved of, they took this idea to a horrific level, depriving the boy of water for five days. While that might seem ridiculous already, when you consider that our bodies are made up of more than 60% water and we need it to function, the reality of just how terrible this “punishment” was sets in. Watch this shocking news report by CNN, including a heartbreaking interview with Johnathan’s twin brother, who watched the little boy die at the hands of his parents’ abuse. When someone goes without water for two days, they become delirious and nauseous. After three to five days, the body starts shutting down organs and eventually the brain. It’s a testament to the sinisterness of these parents that […]

He Gave His Dad A Virtual-Reality Headset, And He Reacted Like Any Cranky Dad Would

Despite looking dorky, Virtual-Reality headsets are becoming more popular by the minute, with Samsung offering a free set with the new Galaxy S7, and Playstation launching nearly 50 games that are compatible with Virtual-Reality equipment. This just begs one question: is the technology really all it’s cracked up to be? According to one extremely British father, yes and no. When his son let him try on a V-R headset, he was very vocal (and explicit) about the whole thing. Watch as his musings on the gadget go from good, to bad, to awful. Get used to it, Dad. These headsets might be the way of the future…or they could be the way of the future like the Segway was, which never really became a thing outside the realm of mall security. Who even knows anymore?

Buried In The Fine Print On Amazon.com Could Be A Hint That The Human Race Is Doomed

We’ve all done it… We hit the agree button rather than reading the fine print. But what we’re really doing is rolling the die, assuming these major corporations have our best interests in mind. It’s way easier than reading the Terms and Conditions. But one careful user ACTUALLY read said fine print for Amazon’s new video game creation software Lumberyard. He discovered something that may or may not hint at an impending zombie apocalypse…does Amazon know something we don’t? At first, the stale copy reads like a standard Terms and Conditions document, but about halfway through condition 57.10 on Amazon’s Lumberyard software, sh*t gets real.

You Won’t Believe What These Fast Food Workers Were Doing In The Kitchen Gross!

Most employees of chain restaurants are perfectly helpful people who just want to do their job so they can get paid and support their family. But every couple months or so a story comes out where one or two food service workers do something so gross that it gives everyone else a bad name. This time the news comes from a Waffle House in Forrest City, Arkansas, where a man caught two employees doing their hair in the kitchen — with cooking implements — and captured it on camera. As the manager said, the two employees were fired, but the video may have done irreparable damage to the Waffle House brand. I’m certainly not rushing to get some waffles anytime soon!

This Kid Was Milliseconds Away From Receiving A Loose Baseball Bat To The Face

When one hears the term “pop fly” at a baseball game, it’s typically in reference to a loose ball flying into the stands…but a loose bat? Those don’t get thrown around too often. But that’s what happened during a recent Pittsburgh Pirates game. When one of the Pirates lost control of his bat, it went flying into the stands, straight toward a young fan. Luckily, Dad was there to bunt it away. My boy Michael is right. That kid is adorable! I’m glad this incident didn’t keep him from continuing to enjoy his favorite sport.
