  • One of the biggest events in the life of a family is the arrival of a new child. It's almost always a very big deal for the expectant mother, as well as the friends and family members around her. Usually the announcement of the pregnancy is met with congratulatory feedback. But in the case of Shanee Gibson Hart, from Fort Lewis, Washington, telling her young son, Tré, and toddler daughter, Amaya, was more of an ordeal than a big deal. Filming the announcement to her children in the privacy of a car, Hart broke the news, and her little man was none too happy yet quite hilarious.

    In the back-seat breakdown, Tré voices his unhappiness at having to share his parents' love with yet another sibling. His disgust even has him delivering big words, saying the idea is "exasperating." When was the last time you pulled out that word to describe anything, let alone sibling angst?

    Obviously upset about the breaking news and concerned that another person in his family would destroy their current

  • Depending on whether or not you had a loving father, after screening this viral video you might feel inspired, jealous, or cheated in your own youth. But you're still probably mature enough to feel warm and fuzzy about one man's fatherly love. And this dad happens to be awesome.

    Daniel Hashimoto just wants his kid's dreams to come true, at least a little. Earlier this year, we first saw James, aka Action Movie Kid, in a hit viral video created by the wizardly dad who's an After Effects artist at DreamWorks Animation in Los Angeles. The first installment of "Action Movie Kid" included stunts and themes from science-fiction and superhero movies such as "Star Wars," "Batman," and "Iron Man." The video quickly gained momentum after its debut and even garnered international media attention. To date, "Action Movie Kid: Volume One" has had more than 2 million views on YouTube and will probably have a whole lot more. 

    The dynamic duo is back with another round of great moments that are bound

  • After what has been called the worst earthquake in the Bay Area in 25 years, the altered topography left by the 6.0 magnitude temblor that devastated residents in and around Napa and Sonoma in California last Sunday is being "torn up" by local skateboarders — but not in a destructive way. For decades, the skateboarding culture has been no stranger to riding and ripping on almost anything, whenever and wherever possible. Some enthusiasts of the sport might even call this damaged area in Northern California a street skater's paradise.

    The environmental twists and newfound turns of residential walkways and roads have skateboarding youth using buckled pavement as miniramps for tricks like 180-degree spins and various hand-grabs, while the fractured sidewalks serve as obstacles to "ollie" or jump over.

    Obviously this isn't the first time we've seen skaters perform tricks in unbelievable terrain and weather, but this is definitely a new spin on a skate park — one made by Mother Nature in one

  • After his self-imposed hiatus from the entertainment industry, comedy legend Dave Chappelle has recently returned to the spotlight, performing at selected shows. He even went back to the Oddball Festival on Aug. 23 in Hartford, Conn., where he stunned audience members last year as he exited the stage during his set, upset by ongoing heckling and constant crowd noise, choosing never to return to the Connecticut city.

    While finishing up his own set on stage, comedian Louis C.K. introduced Chappelle to a happily roaring crowd. Chappelle apologized, saying, "I did not think I would ever come back to Hartford again. It was a year ago tonight. I had 364 nights to think about that fatal night, one year ago ... I was really immature about what happened." He even thanked the audience for not booing him.

    After he apologized, Chappelle continued his set by poking fun at North Korea leader Kim Jong Un, President Barack Obama, and a tryst with a much, much older woman. If you're a fan, you'll

  • Some women might tell you that pregnancy is a wonderful experience. Others might argue that it's a life-changing experience that's no fun at all. But a San Francisco couple decided to illustrate the glory of their pregnancy in a Vine video.

    Vine video artist Ian Padgham filmed his wife, Claire Pasquier, over the course of nine months, creating the six-second, time-lapsed clip that coolly documents her pregnancy from the beginning to the introduction of their newborn. Padgham professionally creates Vines for various brands and is a fan of the time-limiting challenges the video app presents. His passion for his new family and his love for Vine have made this one of the most viewed Vines of all time, garnering more than 9 million views and growing. Commenters on the quick maternity video are impressed with Padgham's creation, writing things ilke "that's patience" and "this is when you wish that vine was just a few seconds longer."

    Like most Vine vignettes, the process for putting this
