  • Rock climbing looks hard and pretty dangerous to begin with, but a super talented climber in Thailand is taking the dangerous sport to the next level. Watch as he freestyle climbs a cliff with nothing but his bare hands and feet:

    Travel guide John Early shot the video while on Thailand’s Pranang Beach in Railay in early October. The climber’s name is Neu, but goes by the nickname "Monkey Man." You can see crowds gathering near the cliff and enjoying Neu’s stunts. John Early told Storyful “The entire beach was captivated. Even the monkeys were mystified.”

  • It's a seemingly confusing question, until you see the GIF. Where did the soda go? Upon seeing it, you instantly understand the context, as well as the reason for naming an entire subreddit after it. There are subreddits dedicated to a gigantic variety of subjects, but few contain as many user-submitted pieces of gold as r/wheredidthesodago. Infomercials exist on various spectrums. There's products that look really cool, and ones that look ridiculous. But what most if not all of them contain are moments of pure camp, a tactic that imprints itself into people's minds, and almost certainly is intentional. If you remove the context, snippets of them are hilarious, and perfect for GIF format. It's why infomercials are so shareable. Luckily for us, redditors are hard at work night and day submitting to the subreddit, and for that we can be grateful. So if you are in need of a spoon that doesn't work, finding out what a wrench is, or seeing a dog carried around in a shoulder bag, check out Read More »from Ridiculous GIFs from Infomercials, Lovingly Chronicled
  • A little boy who dressed up as a tiger for Halloween got to visit a real live tiger at the Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma, Wash. Two-year-old Marshall Shaffer's parents brought him to the zoo to hang out with Kali the Sumatran tiger cub — through a thick glass panel, of course. Check out their playdate:

    After playing a game of tiger tag, 6-month-old Kali got tired and lay down. Kids will be kids, no matter what mammal species they are!

    The fun video reminded us of a similar scene back in 2011 when a 1-year-old named Trent visited a 400-pound lioness named Angie at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. However, instead of Angie wanting to play with Trent, it appeared that she was more interested in having him for lunch. It might have had something to do with Trent's striped sweater resembling the stripes of a zebra:

  • It isn't easy for someone to be optimistic in the face of cancer, but it seems as if Deborah Cohan is doing a fine job of it. Cohan is an ob-gyn in the San Francisco area, who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Treatment was to be a double mastectomy, a tough procedure to come to terms with. So to add some positive vibes to the operating room, Cohan came up with the idea of having a pre-operation flash mob -- and the results are nothing short of inspirational. The mother of two is seen front and center with surely one of the bravest faces ever seen on someone about to undergo surgery. She and the team of surgeons dance to the song "Get Me Bodied," by Beyoncé. On her CaringBridge page, Cohan explains her reasoning for creating the flash mob, as well as for wanting others to also dance and send her videos of it. She wrote, "I have visions of a healing video montage. Nothing brings me greater joy than catalyzing others to dance, move, be in their bodies." Commenters wrote in
