Talk about a close call! Flutist Viviana Guzman got up close and personal with a humpback whale while paddleboarding in California. Guzman was serenading marine mammals near Half Moon Bay earlier this month, when a humpback breached the surface. View Now
Here at RightThisMinute we've all nearly gagged at the talented Dr. Sandra Lee's (AKA Dr. Pimple Popper) messy and addicting extractions that have gone viral. View Now
Tell your surfing friends the best "waves" are two miles up in the clouds over Florida. Red Bull stuntman Sean MacCormac will back you up. View Now
When life throws its worst at us, we hope the people we trust and love most will be there to support and encourage us. In this ridiculous accident where a Russian woman gets stuck in a hollow tree, her laughing and Snapchatting friends might have enjoyed her bizarre situation a little too much, we think.
And then Mr. Lumberjack shows up and scares the living daylights out of us when he attempts a risky rescue of this good-natured damsel in distress.
This bizarre and angry encounter on the Scotish cliffs reminds us of that terrifying Alfred Hitchcock classic "The Birds". For once, hundreds of pesky seagulls don't want Paul Reavley's sandwich—they just want him gone! An Irish fox hunter got the opposite treatment when his adorable would-be prey snuck up close for a friendly looksie at the strange creature making fox sounds.
The need for speed and flight is in the blood of any pilot. Heck, we've already got a patron superhero for these guys—Iron Man!
The truth is, you're settling for second-best to any plane because XDubai has developed a working jetwing that'll leave you carving up the clouds in jaw-dropping stunts with the likes of jetmen Yves Rossy and Vince Reffet.
For the amount of time this dilapidated car keeps the police pursuit at bay, we assumed there's some super spy behind the wheel. Nope! Turns out it is just four party boys who're pretty determined to stay out of a Russian slammer. The real credit goes to the hardy Little Lada That Could car hat kept together for this insane marathon police chase.
These tiny, ghostly Pinktoe Tarantulas just a week old may grow up into those big, hairy adults you arachnophobes love to squash but these itsy-bitsy cuties have stolen our hearts. You won't mistake them for anything else but spiders but these little babies are so tiny and smooth they hardly even look scary!
This insane fever of soaring Manta Rays (yes, "fever" is actually the correct way to describe a group of stingrays) is one more reason to visit beautiful Cabo in Mexico. This Paddleboarder will never forget his surprise encounter.
We've seen those guys dancing while their cars "ghost" driverless down the road for years. it's risky, dangerous, and unfortunately, makes REALLY entertaining videos.
This Darwin Award nominee outshines every other ghostrider on the planet when he takes this dangerous stunt out onto this Swiss lake. How? He shoves the throttle down on his ridiculously expensive boat and jumps over the side to joyfully WAKEBOARD. He captures the entire thrill ride grinning ear-to-ear on a selfie stick before he safely re-boards. View Now
This will force you to check your shoes for insects and small animals before stepping into them. A baby cobra in India emerged from this dress shoe to surprise the owner. Eventually, the tiny snake did evacuate the shoe and slither off. View Now
Most sensible campers run away SCREAMING from a surprise bear encounter. In Mother Russia, you simply spoon-feed it porridge and berries until he's friendly!
Turns out Stepan is a trained animal actor and has basically the same relationship with this family most have with a dog—snuggling and back-scratching included! This bizarre twist makes this family sound even more awesome and also a little bit crazy to keep a full-grown teddy bear (albeit trained) this close to children.
Some Nigerian doctors claimed 19-year-old Rahma Haruna was cursed when her limbs stopped developing as an infant. But almost two decades and a small fortune in research later, we love how Rahma and her caring family are so happy. Although she spends most of her day in the small bucket, her wheelchair allows her to get around in her village. Rahma lives a positive and fulfilling life and shows an inspiring knack for business entrepreneurship.
It's safe to say we're ABSOLUTELY #teamrahma.
Broken windshield wipers during a violent downpour can make a driver's life miserable.
When this Indian bus driver in a pickle looked around he didn't see a problem, just LOTS of string and strong arms! This hilarious windshield wiper DIY hack is probably something we would not have thought of but we've gotta applaud the ingenuity of this driver and the good humor of the new official windshield wiper-man. He seems to be enjoying his new role and we HOPE he got a free ride for his trouble.
We can't spy into the mind of a criminal when they do the things they do but we can definitely wonder what the HECK they were thinking!
Up first, the arsonist in the UK takes the time to snap a photo of the doomed minivan before he does the dirty deed. Suddenly, he's looking more like a hitman connected to a string of recent arson attacks.
The sterile latex gloves gave this second criminal away when he threatens an Aussie shop owner with her own pen. We're just wondering why he didn't think ahead and bring an actual weapon.
Only. In. Russia.
We assumed that by now, after all the INSANE videos coming out of their country, Russians would be totally prepared for bizarre accidents on the road, like this wedding guest who was having a little TOO much fun without his seatbelt on. Like the kids say, it's all fun and games until your car flips on you.
But because it's Russia, this guy also survives!
Just when scientists start to think they understand the planet, bizarre, unexplainable events "pop up" to humble them... sometimes literally! These "bubbles" on the Siberian tundra are formed when melting permafrost releases massive amounts of CO2 and methane. Scientists are alarmed because, as its name leads us to believe, permafrost NEVER normally melts.
We're treated to an unusual "twist" on a common sight when a swirling dust devil hits a field of freshly cut hay in the UK. View Now
We've always thought Darts are a pretty extreme game. To land a single bullseye you need muscle control, hand-eye coordination and a little pinch of fairy dust. Most of the time it's just "try not to hit the wall"! View Now
Where Darrick Thomson is, KhamLha his elephant big sister can't be far behind!
This odd but heartwarming friendship, first shared by ElephantNews, started when Darrick began volunteering at the Elephant Nature Park in Thailand and met the infant elephant. From that time forward, the two were INSEPARABLE! KhamLha's now a teenager (in elephant years), but she still coddles and leads Darrick around like momma elephants usually parent their youngsters.

They say to really understand someone, you need to a walk a mile in their shoes.
Dutch luxury lingerie company PrimaDonna put their own spin on this principle when they created International E-Cup Day. Now, one day every year, every male employee from stockman to CEO straps an E-Cup
on their chest to understand the daily discomfort the main demographic--women--live with daily.
Let's just say the AHA!-moments are pretty darn enlightening and entertaining.
Check twice next time you pick up that stray dollar or you might star in PrankFiles' next hilarious video!
Turns out people will put up with a lot for a dollar because every unwary shopper takes the juicy bait. The reactions are PRICELESS as the victims spy the realistic-looking critter springing out of the shadows. We love the horrifying moment when they realize the joke's not yet over!
Let's be honest, the only time we appreciate traffic lights is when we see green. Thanks to a groundbreaking top-to-bottom redesign of traffic systems in the Dutch town of 's-Hertogenbosch, it might be ALL you see. Using complex algorithms and weight sensors on every street, traffic signals can now track literally every vehicle on the road and adjust to accommodate the EXACT flows of traffic. View Now
Scotty Cranmer & Co. never fail to deliver on their awesome sports hijinks. Their latest video combines the massively growing genre of basketball trick-shots with pulse-pounding BMX bike stunts. The trio quickly hit the sweet spot and soon Scotty, Dylan and Big Boy are dunking, head-butting and alley-ooping basketballs midair.
Nothing. But. Net.
We don't know how these guys get up again after their bodies take this battering. Proof, I guess, that we humans are a pretty hardy species.
I's whispered our first indestructible man might have attempted this dramatic fall ON PURPOSE to jump-start his daredevil career in the Kazakhstani city of Almaty. On the contrary, this Ukrainian superman could've skipped this completely avoidable Terminator flashback if he'd just paid the darn bus fare!
This storied Alaskan rafting guide has only ever lost a SINGLE rafter overboard. Whatever rapid they just went over in the Nenana River must have been insane because count the bobbing heads--there's SEVEN people in the water. The most our freezing and battered friends can do is try to avoid all those dangerous rocks shooting towards them before they're finally rescued by the two rafters who managed to stay afloat.
Things could've been worse... at least there wasn't a BEAR swimming beside them, which is exactly what happens in the second video.
Fishing can be a relaxing and rewarding experience, but it can also be dangerous. Odiehammer Fishing shared this video of him removing a crank bait hook from his poor brother-in-law's cheek. The brother-in-law did not want to go to the emergency room. Even though the whole process looked very painful the brother-in-law handled the pain very well. View Now
