Age is just a number, and Tony Hawk proves it. Watch the skateboarding legend land a 900—or a two-and-a-half aerial spin—at the ripe age of 48. Exactly 17 years ago yesterday (June 27th), Hawk landed the trick for the first time. To commemorate the anniversary, the father of four did it again.
Fun fact: Hawk is among only a few skateboarders who’ve actually landed the trick. The last person to do so was Evan Doherty, 11, in 2014. Pretty impressive. View Now
Some days are okay. Others you're trapped in a toilet.
This seriously happened for one poor Chinese pup, whose owner called police after she found her pet dog trapped under her squat toilet in the city of Mengzi in Yunnan Province. Thankfully, firefighters were quickly on the scene and rescued the soggy and stinky dog. A little less dignified perhaps, but safe.
A band of kayakers on the River Usk in Wales similarly caught on video the clever rescue of a young sheep who'd mistakenly thought it could swim before it gamely jumped in the water.
If you stumbled into a sinkhole like this unfortunate officer of the law in China, we doubt most people would've kept calm like this cool cucumber did. When life gave Liu Yong a sinkhole, well, he dove into that opportunity, vanishing and reappearing several feet below on the hill! It's not quite magic but it's spectacular enough to make him an honorary wizard by RightThisMinute standards. View Now
