Man returns home to overjoyed mom after biking around the world for 7 years

TwitterFacebook

Englishman Leigh Timmis set off on a wild adventure seven years ago.

And by wild we mean he was determined to ride his bike for two years around the world. That ambitious timeline quickly fell to the wayside as he realized how daunting the challenge would be to actually traverse the globe.

Timmis’ journey came to an emotional end Saturday when he arrived home in Derby, England, hopped off his bike, and jumped into a sweet embrace with his mom, who he hadn’t seen since 2014. 

Leigh Timmis and his mom embrace after Timmis' adventure finally ends.

Anne Hathaway reveals she’s a big pothead, dude

TwitterFacebook

The list of celebrities coming out as cannabis users is growing like a weed.

Anne Hathaway appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Thursday, which just so happened to be the unofficial stoner holiday 420. While on the show, Hathaway played a game called “Plead The Fifth.” The game is simple, Cohen asks her three questions, she has to answer two of them, and one she can plead the fifth. 

In the very first question, Cohen brings up a rumor about Hathaway being a stoner, and asks her on a scale of one to ten, how big of a stoner is she? Anne smiles, and responds, “I’m not a little one.” Read more…

Guy loses weightlifting bet in an embarrassing way and his friends can’t stop laughing

TwitterFacebook

This is truly a bad day in the gym. 

These guys were placing bets in the gym, $20 for one bench press. A bench press that the athlete in question seemed pretty confident about. A bench press gone horribly wrong. 

Few farts are as pure and innocent as this one. Few laughs are as true and intense as those of @mheaden21 and his friends. For once, saying “I’M SCREAMING” is actually correct. And people really, really are.

Skrillex tweeted to Elon Musk a video of himself getting handcuffed. Cool!

TwitterFacebook

Sometimes, it’s best just to lay down the facts. 

Skrillex was pulled over by police outside a Pinkberry in Hollywood on Thursday for blasting his own demos too loud in his Tesla and was handcuffed for driving without identification. A fan (who may or may not have been enjoying frozen yogurt) identified him as Sonny Moore to the officer and caught the whole thing on Snapchat, adding a soundtrack of Skillex’s collaboration with A$AP Rocky, “Wild for the Night.” She then tweeted a video of the whole saga. 

Skrillex retweeted the Criterion-collection worthy collection of Snapchats and mentioned Elon Musk in the conversation to compliment Tesla speakers.  Read more…

Intense video shows oblivious truck driver drag a car with someone in it

TwitterFacebook

An intense video captured on a California freeway shows a large tractor trailer truck dragging a car, seemingly unaware the two vehicles had gotten into an accident.

Witness Brian Steimke was driving up the Cajon Pass when he pulled up on the truck dragging a maroon Nissan Maxima. 

“They’re dragging the car,” Steimke can be heard saying in the clip, amazed by what he’s seeing. “They don’t know what’s going on here.”

When Steimke pulls alongside the vehicles, the driver in the car being dragged unrolls the window and is waving at the truck driver to stop.  Read more…

Grown men go through a carwash in an open convertible, just for the LOLs

TwitterFacebook

They knew exactly how would go down. And yet, they did it anyway.

The LOLs are worth it for Australian radio presenters, Hamish and Andy, who sold all their bitcoin (!) in order to buy an old SAAB convertible. Why, you ask? Oh, just to drive it through a carwash on camera. 

You know, just to see what that’d be like. Silly? Yes. But will it bring a smile to your dial? Also, yes.

Tough goose spotting walking around New York with an arrow through its neck

TwitterFacebook

Residents in Amherst, New York have been on a wild goose chase for more than a month looking for a Canada goose walking around with an arrow through its neck

Yes, you read that correctly. There’s an actual arrow stuck in a goose’s neck. And the goose is still alive and kicking and balancing her long neck pretty well between the two sides of the killing contraption.

According to the local ABC affiliate, animal groups are still unable to catch the goose, and Amherst authorities don’t know how she wound up sustaining such an injury. However, this badass goose seems to be a-okay. She’s been flying, pecking at grass, and flapping her wings like a normal, un-speared bird.  Read more…

Poor woman got her hand stuck in a toilet so badly that she had to call the police

TwitterFacebook

Upon first watch, this Cleveland, Texas, woman just seems like a raccoon willfully stuck in a trap ’cause it’s unwilling to let go of a shiny object (shouts out to Where the Red Fern Grows).

Turns out, though, that it was her watch trapping her in this toilet-y prison. Easy in, not so easy out. 

The woman involved was trying to un-clog her toilet when she got stuck, hoping to save money on a plumber by just pulling out the wad of toilet paper or whatever was stuck, according to ViralHog

And no, she didn’t have a plunger. Read more…

Little girl getting dragged by a merry-go-round is too relatable

TwitterFacebook

Everyone’s had one of those days. 

Days where it’s hard to care about anything and you’re just barely holding on as life and the world around you just seems to keep going on without you. Days where you can barely muster the strength to get out of bed.

This video proves that kids are not immune to experiencing one of those days.

Woman barely escapes getting struck by a train

A pedestrian in New Zealand came just inches from being struck by a train because she didn’t look both ways before crossing. Parents across the world are violently shaking their heads after reading that sentence. 

Officials for the Auckland Transport released footage of a distracted woman crossing the tracks at the Mount Eden station on Friday in an attempt to raise awareness for rail safety.  

In the clip, several people can be seen crossing the tracks as the warning lights flash in the corner. Eventually, a woman in a purple sweatshirt starts to stroll across the tracks. She can be seen looking to her right before she crossed, but not to her left.  Read more…

United’s staff memo makes the internet even angrier—yes, that’s possible

TwitterFacebook

The CEO of United Airlines wants his employees to know the company made a huge mistake, and he’s really sorry about it. 

Lol, just kidding. In a staff memo, Oscar Munoz called the passenger seen being dragged off a plane in disturbing viral videos “disruptive and belligerent” after they “politely” asked him to “deplane.” Ultimately, the crew was “left with no choice but to call Chicago Aviation Security Officers to assist in removing the customer from the flight.”

That’s funny, because it looked like a paying customer was removed against his will by several men who left him bloodied, as terrified passengers screamed at them to stop. The passenger was being removed because United overbooked the flight and no one would volunteer to get off to make room for employees who needed a ride. Read more…

Ludacris has ridiculously fake CGI abs in his new music video

TwitterFacebook

There are some things you see that immediately burn into the back of your retinas. Come check out Ludacris’ new abs.

Luda unveiled his new single “Vitamin D” on Monday, and while most were hopefully awaiting his nostalgic return, it was hard to see past the ridiculous, CGI six-pack. Oh, also, someone lost his nipples. 

The internet tried to bash Ludacris for his fake abs, so he showed his followers where they too could purchase a fake six-pack on Amazon. Given the song is about plastic surgery and Luda’s reaction, the abs are likely a gag, but the Nintendo 64 quality is the part that has most people in stitches. Read more…

This newscaster’s terrified reaction is all of us getting caught daydreaming at work

TwitterFacebook

Any good employee spends at least 50 percent of the work dreaming they were somewhere else, and another 30 percent trying not to get caught doing it. 

One particularly Australian newscaster wasn’t so lucky. While waiting to introduce a new segment on Australia’s ABC24, she got interrupted while examining her nails at her desk, something all of us have done at least once before (please don’t try and deny it).

Unfortunately, this particular newscaster got caught while on live television.

Enjoy.

Gemma Whelan’s Audition for Yara on ‘Game of Thrones’ used the most uncomfortable scene

TwitterFacebook

When Yara Greyjoy reunited with her long-lost brother on Season 2 of Game of Thrones, the two did not recognize each other. They’re ignorance didn’t make the scene that followed — you know, the one involving fondling and a horse — any more comfortable to watch.

Well, turns out that moment was one of the scenes Gemma Whelan, who plays Yara, had to enact during her GoT audition.

There was one major difference, though: instead of Theon “working away on” Yara (Whelan’s phrasing) in the audition, Yara was “worrying on” Theon. Also, Whelan was sitting on a chair instead of a horse, but, you know, that’s to be expected. Read more…

Guy gets nailed in the throat with a pigeon while riding a roller coaster

TwitterFacebook

The opening of the Ferrari Land theme park at PortAventura Park in Spain started with a truly unfortunate and equally hilarious event when a rider on one of the park’s roller coasters collided with a bird. 

The park, which officially opened to the public on Friday, features the highest and fastest roller coast in Europe, which launches riders to 111 mph in just five seconds. Well, during that speedy acceleration, a rider in the front of the coaster gets nailed right in the throat by a pigeon. 

The guy seemed equally horrified and confused by the whole thing, and just as the pigeon came into his life, it was gone, brushed aside like an eyelash in the wind. Read more…
