No, these aren't clown cars. The race car just got a bit tinier, at least for The Mongol Rally 2016. Imagine traveling 10,000 miles across Europe and Asia, but you're lost in an old, miniature car and there's nobody to call for help. There are bound to be some mishaps along the way. This ultimate rat race isn't all bad, though. Drivers who set off for the trip raise money for Cool-Earth Rainforest Charity and Cancer Research. View Now
When life throws its worst at us, we hope the people we trust and love most will be there to support and encourage us.

And then Mr. Lumberjack shows up and scares the living daylights out of us when he attempts a risky rescue of this good-natured damsel in distress.

Picture your grandma in one of these!
This wonderful swimwear lineup from MODE took us all the way back to 1916, when all the bad girls were showing off their scandalous calves. We've seen similar fashion shows before but we're blown away by the creative body paint twist and the insane level of detail that goes into each swimsuit.
Makes you wonder where swimwear fashion will be a century from now!
This bizarre and angry encounter on the Scotish cliffs reminds us of that terrifying Alfred Hitchcock classic "The Birds". For once, hundreds of pesky seagulls don't want Paul Reavley's sandwich—they just want him gone! An Irish fox hunter got the opposite treatment when his adorable would-be prey snuck up close for a friendly looksie at the strange creature making fox sounds.

When this Indian bus driver in a pickle looked around he didn't see a problem, just LOTS of string and strong arms! This hilarious windshield wiper DIY hack is probably something we would not have thought of but we've gotta applaud the ingenuity of this driver and the good humor of the new official windshield wiper-man.

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

Whatever rapid they just went over in the Nenana River must have been insane because count the bobbing heads--there's SEVEN people in the water.

We think the hilarious karma of this second video almost makes up for the belated justice in the first video. 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
