The day already brought us a slow-mo pageant girl videos and now the screeching sound of dial-up internet connection has gotten the treatment as well. Who knew that a noise that evokes memories of early internet for so many of us had the potential to sound like the score to 'Lost' when slowed down by 700%? Check it out below and then listen to the 'Lost' opening to compare:
TLC reality show (and guilty pleasure) 'Toddlers & Tiaras' chronicles the sometimes controversial world of child beauty pageants and one its tiny stars, like season two breakout Little Eden Wood. Confessional footage of the six year old complaining about the discomforts of hairspray was slowed down, making this normally cute kid a bit creepy.
Hope she wasn't planning to make meringue. Charlotte Matthews, a cake decorator from Rochdale, England beat the odds this past Sunday when she cracked open 29 double-yolk eggs in a row. According to PoultryHelp.com, these unusual eggs result when "ovulation occurs too rapidly or when one yolk somehow gets 'lost' and is joined by the next yolk." The chance of even finding one is estimated at one in 1,000.
After cracking open 13 double yolks in a row, she asked her husband to film as she went through the rest of the box she purchased from an Asda supermarket, a British subsidiary of Wal-Mart.
If you're looking for some hot new dance moves for summer, look no further than these two dancing Maltese puppies. Their signature move, the Let Me In, is sure to replace the Dougie at nightclubs across the nation.
"Indoor tanning is out," says the Canadian Dermatology Association, who've placed tanning beds squarely in their crosshairs with a new web PSA that shows young women singing their skin with a clothes iron, toaster and waffle iron. Ouch. The CDA hopes these exaggerated examples of frying one's skin hammers home the dangers of tanning. According to their website:
As Della Reese once said in the 1996 Martin Lawrence classic of the same name, "It's a thin line between love and hate." Mackie the Boston Terrier clearly has some strong feeling about being tickled, but whether "Please sir, may I have another?" or "If you touch me again, I'm going to explode" is up for interpretation. Either way, it manifests itself with a series of delightful facial expressions the Mackie's owner caught on camera:
Japanese YouTuber Ron Tajima likes to build robots. Not necessarily the kind of robots that are going to revolutionize manufacturing as we know it, but the kind that will turn from a beer can into a cute little creature or from a Roomba into a baby cradle
When a Chihuahua named Yoda took the stage, she was just the latest pup to win the title of World's Ugliest Dog. But when she accidentally fell off, she tumbled headlong into an elite class of celebrity -- those who have been caught on video taking a spill on stage, including megastars Rihanna, Beyoncé, Keith Urban and Justin Bieber. Luckily, Yoda was unharmed by the fall.
Learning to drive is certainly a new trick for Rain and Ruger, two Australian cattle dogs who were taught to operate a toy car. Their owners post clips of the pair in action on their YouTube channel, Fun With Pup And Jane, and the talented and internet-famous pups have also been featured everywhere from 'Live with Regis and Kelly' to 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show.'
There's no doubting the ease and creativity with which this gentleman avoids an oncoming train. Courtesy of UK based YouTuber BlackMoonCGI (who had a hit video a few months ago with his take on what's inside Dr. Spock's scanner), with this instructional video you'll never get stuck with your car on the train tracks again.
Can you imagine what a nightmare it would be to take out a library book in the US only to find out you have to return it in Canada.

If you didn't already know that slow-motion effects make everything look way cooler, direct your attention to this mesmerizing video in which everyday stuff like water and metal vibrate at 1,000 frames per second (compare that to typical TV and movie shots, which are typically 24, 25 and 30 FPS).
The video was produced by Propadata Films for Fluke Corporation, a Washington-based manufacturer of electronic test equipment, and they've promised to release a making-of video -- look for that on Fluke's YouTube page in the near future.
Apparently they do high school graduation a little differently in Taichung, Taiwan. Instead of just throwing on 'Pomp and Circumstance' and reading out a list of names, Ming-Dao High principal Albert T. Wang emerges onto a smoke-filled stage dressed in a full Iron Man costume and delivers a speech in not one, but two languages. His message: "Believe in yourself. You are also Iron Man."
