The Epic Sacrifice Behind This Flood Rescue Is Heartbreaking

The same weather patterns that bring drought to the U.S. drench Asia. But while we can conserve water, some of the world's most unfortunate people drown in violent, unstoppable monsoon flooding each year. Our hearts go out to this likely-widowed elderly Chinese woman, whom rescuers found neck-deep in floodwaters tied to a tree. The catch? The DIY ropes were her husband's clothes, which he'd tied just before he was swept away in the ultimate act of love. View Now

Eagle-Eyed Shopper Rips Apart ATM Skimming Scheme

We all know catchy sayings like "Leaves Of Three, Let Them Be" that warn us away from Poison Ivy and other hazards but we should really come up with something about sketchy ATMs with wobbly parts. We call dibs on "If It's Loose, Vamoose!" Even though he probably didn't have such a cool limerick in mind, Eli Maguire's Aussie skepticism saved him an embarrassing credit card statement and perhaps quite a load of money during this ATM visit.

Two Crimes As Odd As They Are Violent

Two Crimes As Odd As They Are Violent

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.  View Now

Two Fights Perfectly Channeled Black Friday Frenzy

What wouldn't you do for a pair of ridiculously discounted designer shoes? We've always found it hilarious how immediately after a day of Thanksgiving for everything we have, people rush to stores to push, shove, and even FIGHT for stuff they don't have. Turns out the spirit of Black Friday is alive and well in this crazy brawl inside a Peruvian shoe store. In the second video, we suspect the spirit of alcohol was more likely to blame for these dozen or so guys in England slugging it out in the middle of a busy intersection. View Now
