  • Did your mother ever tell you not to play with your food? Well, she probably never saw ‘Dr. Dan the Pancake Man’ who turns batter into art. Daniel Drake has been creating pancake art at the Courtesy Diner in St. Louis, MO for four years, but recently got national recognition thanks to a Reddit post. It linked to Imgur photos uploaded by one of Dan’s friends showing his cool creations, affectionately called Dan-cakes. So far, he has whipped up pancakes that look like a dog, Aladdin, a jellyfish, and Pac-man to name a few.

    Dan says he started creating the pancake doodles after he saw someone make a Mickey Mouse pancake. His first creation was a huge smiley face for a male customer who laughed at the pancake, and then left a $15 tip. Dan knew he was on to something.

  • We love a good animal rescue story, but this one today is dog gone amazing. Tourists visiting the world’s largest man made hole in Kimberley South Africa spotted a dog swimming at the bottom, 700 feet below the ground!

    The Big Hole in Kimberley, South Africa

    The pooch, nicknamed ‘Underdog’ survived 8 days at the bottom of ‘The Big Hole’ which was used as a diamond mine up until 1914. During days of rescue attempts, she was kept alive by Good Samaritans who dropped food down into the hole.

    On day eight and after five hours of work, she was brought to the top by the fire department and search and rescue teams. It took so long to rescue underdog because ropes were not long enough to reach her, and at first attempt, she got scared and jumped into the water. After reaching the top of the mine, underdog was taken to an animal shelter. And we are happy to report, hundreds of applicants have requested to adopt the adventurous canine. The shelter said they will go through all applicants in order to find Underdog the best home possible.

  • We all know that the high-altitude peaks and valleys of Colorado become a winter wonderland this time of year. But along with that snowcapped majesty comes a lot of complaints. However, news anchor Kyle Clark of Denver's KUSA has a gripe unrelated to icy roads and frigid toes, and he devoted a special segment on a recent broadcast to airing it. In the segment, Clark implores viewers to stop sending in photos of their snowy patios. The station receives a multitude of pictures taken of people's patio furniture, and Clark spends more than two minutes proving it, with image after image of snow-laden tables, chairs and outdoor grills.Snowy patio, just like everyone else's But Clark's speech is not merely a message about frigid photography taken from the comfort of a living room or kitchen — it is a call to arms, an inspiring plea for KUSA's viewers to do better. He asks them to at least put props, like dogs or family members, into the photos, and it's all the better if the pictures are action shots.This action shot of a dog is at least acceptable, according to Clark He builds to a grand

  • The EF-4 tornado that ripped through Illinois on November 17th left behind a path of destruction that can be seen in images and videos of the area. In cases like these you rarely see videos of the tornado actually hitting, especially shot by residents inside of their home. Marc Wells had his camera rolling from the confines of his Washington, IL home and his footage is absolutely terrifying. As you see the tornado approaching the Wells’ home through a window Marc calls for his daughter Josie to make sure she is okay. Then, there is a moment of darkness mixed with Josie’s screams as the tornado passes near their home. And just like that, it is gone. The family was lucky to only have structural damage and no serious injuries or loss of a life. An eerie moment of the video is when Marc sees what is left of his block for the first time.
