...Often go underappreciated. Sure, RightThisMInute host Gayle Bass' headstand may not be perfect, but major props for: 1) The Attempt, 2) filming it, and 3) submitting it to the show. At least she isn't taking children to sled down a snowy hill that leads onto a highway, or running around breaking people's noses. View Now
While out on the ice in Sweden, some curlers came across a sounder of swine stuck in the middle of the frozen lake. So, they did what curlers do best, and curled them to shore.
While the helpless boars got curled, a deer in New York was doing research. Human research. This deer was watching a woman through a window, and mimicked her movements. Good thing she didn't try to drive a car. View Now

But instead of ending up neck-deep in snow, he was able to fly to a safer location. View Now

This squirrel's family would have been very disappointed with his scavenging. The critter found an action camera in the snow, and, seemingly mistaking it for a nut, ran away with it and took it up a tree. The camera was dropped before the squirrel could put it somewhere safe, but that means there's more room for real nuts, so it's probably for the best. View Now

The perfect snowball. Two parts dry powder, one part slushy ice, and one part hard-packed pure snow. When one of these bad boys is created, the only thing to do is slam it into someone's face.
Using the perfect snowball is much more satisfactory than what this snowboarder went through; a sharp turn slammed him into the snow, where he remained, in his shame. View Now

But sometimes, avalanches do earn their reputations. One such avalanche occurred recently in Austria, but despite its obvious power, it appears no one was injured. View Now

While the deer was frozen in position, some people had the opposite situation with a koala: this marsupial would come when it was called. View Now
