Some Nigerian doctors claimed 19-year-old Rahma Haruna was cursed when her limbs stopped developing as an infant. But almost two decades and a small fortune in research later, we love how Rahma and her caring family are so happy. Although she spends most of her day in the small bucket, her wheelchair allows her to get around in her village. Rahma lives a positive and fulfilling life and shows an inspiring knack for business entrepreneurship.
It's safe to say we're ABSOLUTELY #teamrahma.
Let's be honest, the only time we appreciate traffic lights is when we see green. Thanks to a groundbreaking top-to-bottom redesign of traffic systems in the Dutch town of 's-Hertogenbosch, it might be ALL you see. Using complex algorithms and weight sensors on every street, traffic signals can now track literally every vehicle on the road and adjust to accommodate the EXACT flows of traffic. View Now
The ton of bricks versus a ton of feathers problem is a blast from the past for all of us whose third-grade teachers assigned this problem back in grade school. It's a simple application of Newtonian physics with sneaky wording that tripped us up as kids, and still (apparently) does to some of us now!
Serial prankster and boyfriend Brad Holmes is up to it again when he drills poor Jen with this trick question. To be absolutely fair to confused Jen, her reasoning is otherwise pretty solid! View Now
If deep-sea dives have taught us anything, it's that some ocean creatures are pretty dang weird.
Case in point: this bit of seaweed that is NOT a bit of seaweed! We think that underneath all this organic disguise is a small Decorator Crab. If you have an idea, please this us know?
Although our creature got away, these spider crab cousins make a tasty brunch for this hungry octopus. View Now
When Kim and her friend Lena decided to hitchhike around the world from their home in the Netherlands, they knew their travels would lead them through Iran. This country is at times a loud critic of the U.S., so it's fair to say most Americans would never plan a visit, especially if they were women. View Now
We've all bitten off more than we can chew but these silly fawns learn the hard way when they got trapped in fences! These poor baby deer are half hysterical with fright but thankfully, helpful humans help the two scamper back to their worried mommas and forest friends.

A common complaint among dating men is that women find money too attractive. SO attractive, in fact, they'll go out with you JUST BECAUSE you're loaded (they love your wallet).
To test this theory (to be fair, the jury's still out on this one), Rob of RiskyRobTV reveals he came into a sudden fortune to a girl who spurns his advances minutes before. Looks like $750,000 goes a long way!
When we sing along with Mariah how "All I Want For Christmas Is You"... we don't mean "you" LITERALLY boxed and wrapped!
That's what this one visiting son did as a loving birthday surprise for his dad when he hopped into the trunk right before his mom and dad returned home from the Chicago airport. His dad's astonished reaction is priceless but his potty mouth makes it even more entertaining.

No aliens here. Sorry!
Just guys on riding mowers with TOO much time. He literally goes over his backyard four or five times to make this cool crop-circle-looking design. Does it bother you that he missed about half a yard of grass in the process? Maybe he could give us a couple hints about the history of Stonehenge, too. View Now
Next time you're at a party trying to show up that know-it-all Janet, bring THIS little fishie... er, eel, out of your back pocket.
This video from deep inside the Marianas Trench is the only time any fish from his family (Aphyonidae) has ever been seen alive. The fish doesn't even have a name! Although it looks like a fish, it's more of an eel, who could probably see straight into your soul given the transparency of the creature's body.
If you're feeling adventurous, PureWow has a fantastically clever (albeit weird to watch) DIY way to get those hard-to-reach parts of your back forever covered up from Mr. Sun's rays.
You should bring several non-judgemental friends to help you, just in case.

For this couple, their hot, Instagramable engagement story comes on a zip line.
It's a clever choice by wannabe-fiancé Gabriel because he knows his girlfriend Debra will be completely caught by the surprise. And there he is, surrounded with family and friends holding the giant letters that read "WILL YOU MARRY ME? You see the exact moment when Debra comes around the turn and sees the sign, reads it, and suddenly realizes the wonderful surprise.
We wonder if all the cameras made her suspicious?
The last thing little Ben expected the morning his mom took this heartwarming video was to learn that he had beaten Pre-B Acute Lymphoblast Leukemia. The good news means an end to radiation treatments for cancer that had ravaged his growing body for three years.
In truly adorable fashion Ben seems more concerned about what this news means for his summer camp plans until the true meaning of his mom's words finally sinks in. We couldn't be happier for this little guy and his family.
Even Santa himself wouldn't be Ho-Ho-Ho-ing after a week trapped in a chimney. Fortunately, this poor pigeon had a surprising sense of humor and plenty of food, water and human company to keep him going until his hosts staged a rescue and released Jolly Old Pigeon after a 7-day stay.
Cats apparently have saintly ambitions too! This young kitten had a most undignified rescue when a family found him meowing at the bottom of a water outlet pipe in their yard. View Now
For some couples, pregnancy announcements are as simple as "Honey, we made a baby".
Expecting mom Jessie Davidson had something MUCH sweeter in mind when she dressed up her infant in a new t-shirt with a special message printed on the back. Watch, and you'll see the exact moment this new dad realizes what's going on and his face LIGHTS up! His goofy reaction is heartwarming!
We all know what happened when the S.S. Titanic met an iceberg.
Thankfully, this group of hikers at the Spencer Glacier in Alaska on an Ascending Path tour had a much friendlier run-in with an icy relative, and on dry ground, when the small island of ice in the distant lake suddenly decided to reveal just how BIG it really was.
Can you imagine watching this from the lake? View Now
Rafael Manrique captured on camera the beautiful and tear-jerking moment his mother Male embraced her sister Estella after 25 years apart on opposite sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. This tragic story is an all-too-familiar experience for families torn apart by immigration laws. They talked on the phone over the years, but nothing replaces seeing your loved ones face-to-face.

A woman in London recently made headlines for refusing to wear heels to work. It all seems pretty petty, but in the UK it’s still legal to make females wear heels in the workplace—which shed some light on an even bigger issue.
Inspired by the incident, Stylist magazine decided to turn the tables and instead asked men to wear stilettos for a day. Despite it all being pretty comical, it really highlighted how absurd and sexist the law really is. View Now

No topic is off limits for Chelsea Handler’s new series, Chelsea Does. The four-part docuseries — available now on Netflix — bares little resemblance to the traditional late-night talk show format that she is known for. Instead, each episode focuses on those taboo conversations, like racism, drugs and marriage. The rather lax special aims at getting viewers to think differently about particular subjects and to approach more controversial topics with an open mind. View Now
