  • Every year we hear about people who choose to wear inappropriate Halloween costumes. Well, for some reason, 2013 seems to be topping all other years as far as offensive costumes are concerned. You may have heard of the fury over costumes representing Trayvon Martin and Boston Marathon bombing victims, as well as criticism of celebrities like Julianne Hough for wearing blackface for her "Orange Is the New Black" attire. Now photos of two girls in the United Kingdom are causing even more outrage.

    They chose to dress up, if you can believe it, as the Twin Towers burning, complete with fiery explosion accessories and American flags: University of Chester students Amber Langford and Annie Collinge, both 19 years old, wore the matching costumes, one labeled "South Tower," the other "North Tower," to a party at Rosie's nightclub in Chester. Langford's father, Martin, is even a pilot. And as if all that wasn't enough, the club awarded the girls Best Dressed for their costumes, winning them a

  • For many people, a bad haircut can put you in a funk for the rest of the day, and for a few, it'll ruin a whole week or month. But Jeffrey Strain is of a more tolerant breed of person, because as we see from one of his recent YouTube videos, he allowed his 6 and 8-year-old nieces to give him a haircut. In the video, we see the 6-year-old taking some er, creative, passes at his hair. I honestly was a little afraid it might end up in a bad haircut and an injured ear. But alas, Strain patiently tolerates his niece's handiwork. As one commenter on the video said, 'now that is a loving uncle." And though we don't know what the result was exactly, Strain put a positive spin on it, writing, "I can console myself knowing that the mess she created will eventually grow out." Hopefully, quickly.

  • Ah, remember how much fun it was to jump on a trampoline? So many childhood memories center around the backyard item, but for one elk in Evergreen, Colo., an experience with a trampoline is something he'd rather forget. Greg Chase posted footage to YouTube of what he and his wife saw in their backyard recently. A family of elk was hanging out there, and one had unfortunately found his way onto their trampoline. Obviously confused, he had trouble gettinghis bearings but didn't seem to be in too big of a hurry to get out. All the while, another elk followed along, most likely thinking "What did you get yourself into?"

    For their part, Chase and his wife were astounded by the occurrence, wondering what to do. At one point, Chase's wife suggests they may have to shoot the animal, as getting stuck in the hole in the middle of the trampoline could result in a bad injury and the need to end his suffering. Commenters on the video were conflicted about how to feel, writing that it was

  • Same-sex marriage is a hotly debated topic in the U.S., with more and more states legalizing the unions. Instead of getting the opinions of adults on the topic, a new video asks the most innocent group — kids! The YouTube hit is brought to us by the Fine Brothers, aka Benny and Rafi Fine, who regularly release "React" videos on their page. It starts out with kids ranging in age from 5 to 13 years old watching two same-sex proposal videos that have gone viral, "Spencer's Home Depot Marriage Proposal" and "Seattle+The Washington Bus+Jeanne+Alissa = wedding proposal." Watch as they slowly piece together what is happening in each video:

    Next, the Fine Brothers sit down with the youngsters for interviews on the topic of same-sex marriage. All of the children appear to accept the concept of two people of the same sex getting married, except for one boy.  In the beginning of the clip, Benny and Rafi explain that the opinions of children can give valuable insight into where our society stands
