To put everything in perspective, Guinness World Records dubbed "Carolina Reaper" the world's hottest chili pepper at 1.57 million Scoville units of hotness. This noodle monstrosity in Indonesia's capital city combines 100 smashed Bird's Eye chiles and weighs in a 20 million Scoville units.

Like every internet gem, this spicy challenge began with a friendly dare for food blogger Ben Sumadiwiria. BFF in tow, Awesome Eats heads to Indonesia to tackle the infamous Indomie Abang Adek (ramen noodles with a hellishly spicy twist). It seems like a great idea until they actually take a bite... and go deaf!

'Student Driver' Versus Freaked-Out Mom

There's a good reason the 16th birthday is so "sweet". We're talking a driver's license, wheels, mobility, independence! Even parents win because they're no longer a free taxi service. We guess Irish mom Michelle McSweeney was hoping to speed along the process for her adult daughter Megan when they both pile into the family car for what turns out to be an explicative-filled, terrified and hysterical trip around a Dublin parking lot.

Everyone's Excited To Learn The Results Of Gender Reveals

Back in the old days, people used to find out the gender of their babies on the day they were born.

Whether they're out in the snowy mountains to set off a colorful smoke bomb or letting their hair dye clue them in. Congrats to both families.  First video via Noah Couser's YouTube and Instagram.

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

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

Humans To The Rescue!

Nothing breaks our hearts quite as much as seeing hungry animals out in the cold. Stray Rescue of St.Louis came to the aid of one poor pup that was so cold and hungry that all he could do was shiver and howl in fright.

Dancing Around The World

Even the simplest of film projects can take a lot longer to create than you might think. For example, Matt Bray spent a year and a half creating a four-minute dancing video but we think it was time well spent. 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

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. When you stand in one space to look at one of his sculptures it looks like one thing, like a deer, but then once you move the image shifts and becomes something else! Our brains can barely comprehend how to look at these amazing works, let alone figure out how he crafts them. View Now

Boy Reunited With Lost Cat After 7 Months Apart

We love the four-legged members of our family just as much as the two-legged ones.

But thank's to new microchip technology, they were able to locate Plumbo after he was gone for seven months. Daniels reaction says it all. View Now
