Hey, I'm Swampin' Here! & Born An Hour Ago, Already Walking

If we saw a crocodile hanging out in our favorite watering hole (yes, we have a favorite for the purposes of this scenario) we'd happily choose a new watering hole. Elephants, on the other hand, nobody tells them to go somewhere else. The adult elephants have a problem slight pushing the crocs away so the calves can play in the water in peace. View Now

We Love Our Dogs, Despite Their Weird Quirks

Dunkin is a fancy dog who only eats fancy meals. Room-temperature kibble? No thanks. He refuses to eat his food until it's put in the microwave for a couple seconds, because apparently, that turns it into people food. Next, one woman wanted to see what her dogs would do if she collapsed. So she fake falls, and what do the dogs do? They think it's play time. We don't think they even noticed her. via ViralHog View Now

Matt traveled the world and danced with over 1000 strangers for this fun music video. We only wish we were involved too! via ProjectOneLife View Now

These Two Images Are The Same Sculpture

French artist Matthieu Robert-Ortis not only bends wires in order to create his incredible sculptures, but he also bends minds as well.
