  • Baby Boy Astonished by Appearance of TV Remote

    Zain Meghji at Odd News7 days ago

    Whether you call it a remote, clicker, or controller, remote controls have enabled us to enjoy television more efficiently, or … you know … more lazily.

    We've come to rely on them so much that it's pretty upsetting when they get lost, but we might never have as much sheer admiration for remote controls as the baby seen in a recent viral video. 

    It's appropriately titled "Silly Baby Boy Goes Crazy Over a Remote Control," even though it could also be called "Silly Parents Antagonize Poor Little Kid Into Sensory Overload."

    Unlike the video we shared last week, with the baby freaking out when Katy Perry's "Dark Horse" started playing, this kid's reaction isn't to the Mariah Carey jam playing in the background. Instead, it's in response to seeing the remote control put in his face. Again. And again. And again. Like, seriously — why doesn't this kid pass out or burst into tears? This thing goes on for over a minute and a half. 

    It's cute to see his reaction, and then it's perplexing to wonder why it's actually happening.

    It was not your average day at the beach for gym teacher Tugrul Metin. The 29-year-old

    was splashing in the waves in Izmir, on Turkey's west coast, when a shocking sight washed up onto the sand in front of him. Metin discovered the body of a decease , which measured about a meter (3.28 feet) and was estimated to be about a year old.

    Metin told the Turkish Times, "I couldn't take it in at first — I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me." He added that one of the heads' eyes was not fully opened, nor was one of the blowholes.

    Police removed the body of the dolphin from the beach, and an associate professor from Ak Deniz University will begin studying it. The professor, Mehmet Gokoglu, told press that he looked forward to analyzing the unique animal: "Such a dolphin is a very rare occurrence — similar to the occurrence of conjoined human twins."
