  • Meet James Drain, an 80-year-old grandfather who never had the chance to attend prom — or wear a tuxedo.

    Until now.

    When his granddaughter, Joy Webb, found out her “Poppa” didn’t get to go to the prom as a teen, she asked him to be her date.

    “She said, ‘Hey, will you come to the prom with me and be my beau?’ And I said, ‘I sure will,’” Drain told WHNT-TV.

    Before asking her grandfather to prom, Webb got permission from her high school in Albertville, Ala.

    “My family is everything to me, and I love him so much, and it’s just like really special to me because I know not many people get to do that. And I know he loves me and I love him, and it’s just really neat and special,” Webb said to WHNT-TV.

    This heartwarming story proves that you are never too old to go to your first prom. We’re sure it will be a night to remember!

  • A chimp in a Dutch zoo wasn’t a big fan of a drone buzzing above his home, so he took matters into his own hands and promptly swatted it out of the sky.

    Researchers at the Burgers’ Zoo in the Netherlands were operating the drone to observe the apes’ behavior.

    “[The] intelligent apes discovered the spying plane … and the animals immediately armed themselves with long sticks against the prying electronic intruder.... With a direct hit the animal hit the drone down ... and completely destroyed [it],” the zoo explained on its YouTube page.

    The video was posted to YouTube on Friday and has since been seen more than 950,000 times.

    Turns out chimps don’t like being spied on either!

  • Ever wonder what it’s like to take a stroll outside of the International Space Station? Well, thanks to NASA, you can now experience a space walk firsthand.

    Back in February and March, astronauts Barry “Butch” Wilmore and Terry Virts brought GoPro cameras with them on space walks to reconfigure the space station. They captured some pretty breathtaking footage, which NASA uploaded to YouTube.

    Here’s hoping NASA releases more space walk footage soon, because it’s the closest most of us will come to getting to space.

  • They are a little fast, a little furious and very adorable.

    DreamWorksTV released a kid-friendly spoof video of the hit action flick “Furious 7.” The trailer features a group of kindergartners taking on the classic roles of the “Fast and the Furious” gang.

    The action-packed parody trailer is complete with kiddie car chases, Nerf gun fights and mini versions of Vin Diesel and The Rock donning bald caps.

    “There’s nothing more important than family,” says a kid version of Diesel. “Except Legos. Legos are pretty important to me right now.”

    We think “A Little Fast a Little Furious” could give “Furious 7” a run for its money at the box office.

  • Were you a fan of 2048?  Well, prepare yourself. There’s an addicting new Internet game to get yourself wrapped up in. It’s more of a color test for your eyes called Kuku Kube. In case you’ve never heard of it, here’s how you play: First, you start out with four cubes, and click on the one where the shade looks slightly off. Each time you pick the correct cube, a new set of cubes is shown and you must once again pick the cube that stands out to you as different, all with just 60 seconds on the clock. This goes on until you win the game or go insane — whichever comes first. Network 365, the developers of the app, say, “This puzzle is designed to evaluate the quality of your color vision.” A score of 31 or higher is considered to be expert status. If you’re looking to go down this rabbit hole, the free Kuku Kube app is available on Facebook, for Android and iOS, and for desktop browsers. And while we’re on the topic, is this dress blue or gold?
