Octopuses are magnificent creatures, and they have certain skills that cannot be imitated by any other life form on the planet. And this octopus is about to showcase one of those abilities. Watch what happens when they place the critter inside of a tiny box. This thing is the Harry Houdini of the animal kingdom! Still not impressed? Then you might want to check this out. Octopuses have brains that are roughly the size of walnuts, but they’re way smarter than you might think!

Up a creek without a paddle, this adorable little girl and her doggy best friend had to get creative when boredom struck them one afternoon. Finding an empty box just lying around the house, these two hopped inside and silliness ensued. The precious pirates began sailing the seven seas, while singing that sea-faring classic, “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.” googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); You’ve never heard this childhood classic quite like this. It never ceases to amaze me how kids can do just about anything and look so stinkin’ cute. If I did this, I’d get more than a few [More]
The brain teaser is going to present you with a few simple things, like words and colors — things we thought we’d mastered back in kindergarten. All you have to do is name the colors of the words as they pop up onto the screen. Easy, right? Well, not necessarily. There’s a twist in here that will really put your mind to the test. How strong is your brain? If you didn’t do so well the first time, take a minute to focus and try again! Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/mental-abilites/
There are an estimated 30 million stray dogs roaming the streets of India. With poorly lit roads, these pups often end up causing accidents or becoming roadkill. To save strays from being mowed down by vehicles, a non-profit organization called Motopaws has come up with an initiative to fit as many dogs as possible with reflective collars made from donated denim. While it’s certainly not a solution to the stray problem, it goes a long way toward saving lives. What an ingenious way to help these pups. It’s not a bad idea for domestic dogs either! For those late-night walks [More]
Some of my favorite childhood memories include my dad making me breakfast on weekend mornings. I never really cared much about helping him, though — I was way more interested in eating the food than preparing it. But if I’d had the chance to make a cooking video as fun as this one, I’m betting I would have been more than happy to assist. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); David Laurance and his three-year-old daughter Ava are from Perth, Australia, and they love to cook together. While normally, you’d expect a watchful parent to tell their little chef-in-training what to do, [More]
Baked potatoes are great. Throw some butter and salt on ’em right when they come out of the oven, and I’ve reached carby nirvana. But then one man posed the question, “How can you make baked potatoes better?” and his answer is beautifully crispy and all-around perfect. Just grab a wooden skewer and get ready to drool: These spirals are everything. Pass the ketchup, please! Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/potato-spiral/
It’s a staggering number, but more than 90% of women in the U.S. are unhappy with their bodies. And that feeling isn’t only felt by females…men struggle with body image issues, too. But these feelings of inadequacy, ugliness, and dissatisfaction with our figures don’t come out of nowhere…so when do they start? When the Jubilee Project brought 50 people together to ask them one question — if you could change one thing about your body, what would it be — they got some shocking answers. Who gave them, though, will surprise you the most. Somewhere along the way, we lose [More]
Last week, heavy rainfall in Western Pennsylvania caused many roadways to become flooded. Some people were rescued from the floods but for most, it was just an inconvenience. However, the wildlife in the woodlands surrounding the rivers that were swelling from the increase in water quickly became victims. When one news team was in the field reporting on the severe weather, they saw a baby deer get swept away in a river. Realizing it needed help, the reporters and a passerby did something incredible… The Pennsylvania State Trooper took the baby away to get checked out by a vet. It [More]
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); I remember the carefree days when I was a kid…but only vaguely. I didn’t have to worry about politics, war, or really anything on the news other than those segments that featured cute newborn pandas. Life was good. Whether or not you allow your kids to be more involved with current events, sometimes it’s hard to shield them from everything. And since children are basically like adorable sponges when it comes to absorbing information, you’re fighting an uphill battle when it comes to them remembering something they overheard. When this dad asked his kids some questions [More]
When an entire litter of kittens was reunited with the woman who saved them, they only wanted to do one thing — show her some love. But in their minds, there was only one way to do it. Not waiting for her to sit down, the industrious kittens decided to get up to eye level the only way they knew how. Check out their bizarrely cute methods in the video below! I mean, whatever works, right? Judging by all of those giggles, I don’t think this lady minds one bit. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/kittens-climb-owner/
