Helicopters Can Be Both A Problem... And A Solution

The magic for a helicopter is the miraculous way it stays in the air. Once you take away the flying part, you end up with a pretty dangerous contraption like this downed Chinese bird! Unbelievably, a tourist is swimming underneath the helicopter as it comes crashing into the Nenjiang River and barely escapes serious injuries. But before you swear off helicopters forever, in the right hands these flying machines are a powerful tool for good and delivering emergency medical care to injured teen adventurers at Hermit Falls.

If there's anything kindergarten taught us, it's that nobody likes a line-cutter! But instead of just edging ahead of everyone at the grocery store, this unaware lady holds up bicyclists, traffic, and an entire river of boat traffic when she ignores the flashing red lights, sirens, and vocal control room operator at this ready-to-open Florida drawbridge.

Scary Dashcam Footage Says It All About Aggressive Driving

It's cases of aggressive driving that basically wrote these traffic tragedies and near-misses. Of course, narcissism behind the wheel is a lot easier to handle when you're in a tiny compact. Turn that Prius into a hulking semi, a pick-up truck and a heavy van, and suddenly you've got more lives to worry about than just yours when you drive in the wrong lane, zone out or aggressively pass!

FaceCradle Will Have You Sleeping Like A Baby On Your Next Trip

We found a Kickstarter campaign that will revolutionize sleeping on trips — FaceCradle. It's an upgraded memory foam neck pillow with five options and it looks like it's ripped from a massage table. The pillow has a standard dozing mode, a snoozing mode for your shoulder, a table nap mode, and front or side deep sleep modes. It definitely looks different from any other travel pillow, but we love the possibility of actually sleeping on airplanes. View Now

These Bumbling Baddies Are So Close... Yet So Far

The vast majority of people on the street legitimately do need your help... that's why we're glad Kazakh police busted this two-armed man faking a one-arm disability to get into your wallet. Our inexperienced German convenience store bandit could probably learn a few things from that one-armed hustler, though. Happily, for everyone involved, he's so bad at robbing stores everyone and the elderly pepper-spraying clerk gets a clean shot of his face! View Now

Almost...Nothing Can Slow Down Justice

If you've ever tried to go the wrong way through a turnstile at a subway, train or concert, you know just how impossible they are to budge! An elite Ukrainian SWAT team found this out the hard way when they attempted a sneaky surprise raid on a border guard office... until they met Mr. Turnstile who turned their very serious anti-corruption sting into slapstick comedy for Russian TV.

There's Still Hope For This Beachside Parking Fail

There's Still Hope For This Beachside Parking Fail

Besides the fact that it's wet, dirty and gets everywhere, most of us would stay away from DIY beach parking lots because of a little weather pattern called "tides". A forgotten parking brake was actually to blame for this odd ocean Mercedes rescue on the Black Sea "Russian Riviera", but we're sure its driver was still face-palming all the same when he realized his car would never be the same.

'Student Driver' Versus Freaked-Out Mom

There's a good reason the 16th birthday is so "sweet". We're talking a driver's license, wheels, mobility, independence! Even parents win because they're no longer a free taxi service. We guess Irish mom Michelle McSweeney was hoping to speed along the process for her adult daughter Megan when they both pile into the family car for what turns out to be an explicative-filled, terrified and hysterical trip around a Dublin parking lot.
