At the height of a 21-story skyscraper and as wide as two tall adults, "Big Lonely Doug" towers over the decimated forest spreading as far as you can see. Researchers say he's been here since the first Vikings landed in North America... but he might not be around for much longer.

Climbers from the Arboreal Collective scaled this giant Douglas Fir found near Port Renfrew in British Columbia to raise awareness about the commercial clearcutting campaigns that are ravaging Canadian forests and have already completely deforested most of the United States. Sign the Ancient Forest Petition to help preserve British Columbia's endangered old-growth forests!

Careless Pedestrians Get Scary Wake-Up Call

Bending traffic rules always seems harmless until you forget to look both ways and miss an oncoming car like these unwary French pedestrians. Only this time, they get to walk away alive and unhurt because their "close call" is actually an elaborate PSA authorities engineered to teach rule-breaking pedestrians a lesson. The loud noises are generated by a hidden loudspeaker, but the icing on the cake is a secret camera that replays what could've been these strangers' last moments had the virtual car been real.

That's Not An Earthquake, That's A Building Falling! & Construction Site Wake-Up Calls

That's Not An Earthquake, That's A Building Falling! & Construction Site Wake-Up Calls

Tearing down an old hospital to make way for a community park in Sivas, Turkey sounds great but when it scares locals into thinking there's an earthquake well, that's not so great. While the digger driver slowly removed the building's supporting beam, onlookers stood by to watch. They were forced into nearby businesses for refuge when dust flew in all directions.  Pranks know no bounds because they even exist at the construction site.  When your fellow builder dozes off into dreamland, why not prank him? At least that's what crossed these workers' minds when they built a lorry out of cardboard and installed a working horn. What better way to wake him up and give him a scare by making him think he's being run over... We give you props for creativity.  View Now
