It's a well-known fact to anyone who buys a packet of chips (especially the smaller bags) that the actual quantity of chips inside the pack is going to be far less than you imagined. But one consumer got far, far less than anyone would've expected when he opened his 1 oz bag of Lay's.
It was the largest gathering of humans dressed in green suits anywhere. (Well, outside of St. Patrick's Day, that is.) 836 men, women and children displayed "Turtle power" at Minnesota's Mall of America when they set a new record for the largest gathering of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans, beating the previous record of 786 set at Rutgers University in 2008. We like to imagine all 836 fans shouted "Cowabanga!" after the folks at the Guinness World Records gave them the news.
Adele is inescapable these days. The British singer continues to dominate the charts, and her songs are all over the radio and YouTube, thanks to aspiring singers uploading their covers of her many hits. Adele's music influences both young and old alike. Even the really young adore Adele, as evidenced by two-year-old Makena, who looks so cute as she mumbles through 'Someone Like You.'
The 'T' in 'T-Rex' scientifically stands for Tyrannosaurus. Except in Norfolk, England where they have "Tree Rex" - a tree shaped in the form of the infamously ferocious dinosaur.

Time to go "awwwww" again. This burly old man seems to possess the amazing ability to put a litter of Boxer puppies to sleep just by singing to them. He begins singing softly to them, and one by one, the puppies just fall into their blankets and close their eyes.
Kids say the darndest things. Turns out, some of them are even good at putting those words down on a piece of paper. Like how a weatherman at a local TV station received a fan letter from a young student named Flint, after visiting his school. What Flint wrote has gotten the internet in a tizzy, just wondering how on Earth a kid like him could write something so hilariously strange. Check it out below.
When the 'Harry Potter' franchise was all the rage, some students brought the fictional game of Quidditch to life, even giving the sport a league of its own. With the impending release of the next big teen franchise, 'The Hunger Games,' a high school in Connecticut has created a real life version of the game -- minus the 'battle-to-your-death' part. And would you believe it's being hosted by the school's library?
Using Kung-Fu to market a golf game? The makers of 'Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13,' Electronic Arts, seem to think it's a good idea. EA has unveiled a viral commercial starring the basketball giant Shaquille O' Neal and the game's title master Tiger Woods.

Imagine all your favorite childhood memories combined into one awesome toy. That's exactly what LEGO fan Julius von Brunk did when he created the 'Domaster & Tetrawing' - an amalgamation of the Nintendo Game Boy, the game 'Tetris' and Transformers - that is actually a transforming "Nintendobot." Check out how the Tetris cartridge transforms into the 'Tetrawing' robot below. It'll put your LEGO skills to shame.
Blowing soapy water to make bubbles is a right of passage for every child. Seeing glistening bubbles float in the air made us all instinctively want to touch them just to see what would happen. It's no different for this little baby boy, whose joy sees no bounds as bubbles fall down on him for the first time.
With the convenience and anonymity that comes with texting, you would think it's easy to pull off a prank.
