  • We all played Hungry Hungry Hippos as kids, but now the tabletop game has been given a much-needed upgrade.

    Thanks to Tanner Nielson, the classic game has been taken off the dining room table and moved into a gym for a human version aptly titled “Human Hungry Hippos.”

    Nielson posted a clip of the large-scale Hungry Hungry Hippos human-style to YouTube, and the video has all of us viewers anxious to give the game a try.

    All you need to play is an empty gym, balloons, plastic laundry baskets, a few dollies and enough bungee cords to go around.

    And don’t forget a helmet: Safety first!

    Next we would like someone to create a life-size version of Candy Land.

  • Our friends to the north in Canada have become experts on finding unique ways to deal with piles of snow this winter.  One innovative snow engineer, Marcel Landry of Prince Edward Island, dug an impressive snow tunnel in front of his home to get to his car.  He told CBC News: “Instead of shoveling the whole thing out and getting the wind to fill it back in, I just started digging in and in following the path, and eventually I found the car. This took about 6½ hours.” He says he was driven by boredom and cabin fever:
    It’s not just Canadians who are using the tunnel technique. A team of shovelers in Boston noticed that a popular bike path, the Wellington Greenway, was blocked by a giant snow pile. It cut off access for hikers and bikers, and even halted commuters from getting to the nearby T stop, so they got to work to fix the problem with a tunnel. After 10 hours of digging, the crew, headed up by Ari Goldberger and his friend Shadron Davis, completed an impressive 40-foot tunnel

  • Meet the Louisville Leopard Percussionists, a group of talented musicians between the ages of 7 and 12 who are ready to rock.

    The percussion ensemble posted a video rehearsing a xylophone and marimba version of three Zeppelin classics: “Kashmir,” “The Ocean,” and “Immigrant Song.”

    The video was posted back in November 2014 but has gone viral thanks to none other than Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page.
    Page posted the video on his Facebook page over the weekend, writing, “Too good not to share” to his 1.6 million fans.

    This isn’t the first time the percussionist group has wowed us with their musical chops. Last year they performed a steel-drum medley of We the Kings’ “Check Yes Juliet” and Pharrell Williams’s “Happy.”

    Rock on, kids!

  • An Australian sign language interpreter has taken social media by storm — while covering one that battered Queensland.
    While Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk gave an update on Cyclone Marcia, social media began to take notice of her sign language interpreter — some saying he stole show, along with our hearts.
    The interpreter, Mark Cave, has been dubbed #SignGuy on Twitter, and viewers have fallen in love with his larger-than-life, animated expressions.
    “Early days but I declare the sign language translator at today’s press conference the star of TC Marcia. #TCMarcia,” tweeted @CookerandLooker.
    Another person, @czhedgehog, tweeted, “#signguy doing a GREAT JOB at press conf - #disability matters , thank you. #TCMarcia”

    @JBPooket tweeted, “This guy is magic #signguy #TCMarcia”
    As for Cave, he’s not a big fan of his new found Internet fame.

    “I’m sort of a private person. I’d rather not be in the spotlight, but I know this is such an important thing to do, and I feel confident I can do a
