  • 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.

    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

  • Looking around at all the technology that surrounds us, it is hard not to think that the future some imagined decades ago is finally here. We are wireless, automated, and connected in ways that were never before possible. But many on the Internet still have one nagging complaint: We were promised flying cars.They are popular in science-fiction stories, but the creator of the Aeromobil wants to make it a reality. The Slovakian company's prototype, Aeromobil 2.5, really works. On the road, it can do 99 mph. If you are in a rush,though, or you just want some altitude, you can extend the wings, and once you hit 90 mph, take off into the sky, reaching top speeds of 123 miles. With a full tank of gas, the car can even fly like this for 430 miles.

    The vehicle debuted at AeroTech, an air show in Montreal. It immediately got attention from those fantasizing about beating the morning rush by cruising over the bottlenecks. Alas, though, there are no plans to mass-produce the 2.5, owing to legal
