In the winter time, most alligators will transfer to warmer waters but if they don't it's time to intervene. The folks over at the Colorado Gators Reptile Park go through this every year as they guide gators to warm ponds. How can they tell if a gator is hiding beneath frozen water? There is a small hole in the ice just big enough for the gator to take a breath of fresh air.

Why You DON'T Play Around On Elevators Or Escalators

Why You DON'T Play Around On Elevators Or Escalators

A little girl and her big brother decided it would be fun to tie some packing string to each other, one of them get into an elevator, and see what happens. The girl was pulled into the roof of the descending elevator, suffering minor injuries, but doctors say that she'll be alright. Next, a young girl at a shopping mall in China was playing around on the escalator when her head became stuck between the wall and the guard rails. Two other people on the escalator ran past, failing to hit the emergency stop button. However, the girl managed to eventually free herself. View Now

How Do I Back Up Again? & Nature's Car Wash

Okay, we all make mistakes, but this is kind of ridiculous. For some reason, this driver didn't think to just back up in a straight line. No, this wasn't a demolition derby driver that got confused, just who it turns out wasn't intoxicated. Then, when life gives you lemons, grab a mop and wash your car with those lemons. Apparently, this woman thought that a rainstorm provided the perfect opportunity to wash her car. It is kind of hard to argue with that kind of logic.  via Viral Hog View Now

Gayle On Film: Ant-Man And The Wasp

Gayle On Film: Ant-Man And The Wasp

As far as sequels go, so far this summer "The Incredibles 2" seemed to get it just right ahead of "Deadpool 2" and "Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom" — both fun, but not stellar. Then along came "Ant-Man and The Wasp." In the Marvel universe, there are a plethora of heroes vying for favorite status, and there is something more approachable and likable about Paul Rudd and this film. Simply, he's an everyman. He's THAT guy that everyone would love to have as a co-worker or buddy, and in this role, as a divorced dad on house arrest, audiences will again feel an affection for this ex-con. His Robin Hood vibes, coupled with the other ex-cons and business partners (Michael Peña, T.I. Harris, and David Dastmalchian), provide constant comic relief throughout. Homage must be given to "The Wasp" (Evangeline Lilly). She can fight and hold her own, sometimes better than Rudd, but their chemistry is sweet and overdone as oft is the case in such films. It is just as much her story, but Rudd does get the better jokes.  View Now
