  • Here is a cautionary tale of a little girl who thought playing inside a washing machine would be a good idea.
    A two-year-old girl in China accidentally trapped herself inside a machine after crawling inside of it while playing. The toddler was discovered by her mother, who immediately called for help.
    It took a crew of firefighters more than an hour to rescue the little girl, using pliers and handheld power saws to cut her out. After the firefighters cut the tube in half the little girl’s father was able to wiggle her out.

    The toddler remained calm during her rescue and wasn’t injured from the incident; it seems only her ego was bruised.

    Incidents likes this are not limited to China it's also a problem stateside. In the past year, kids from New York to Utah have also found themselves stuck

  • While owners are away, dogs will play.

    Unless you are this emotional canine named Guinness.

    His owner, Mike Taylor, an intern at Missouri radio station 104.7, recently captured what Guinness does when he leaves his pup alone in the apartment by attaching a GoPro camera to his collar.

    When he leaves, Mike’s apartment becomes a heartbreak hotel, with a dog so lonesome it will make you cry.

    Rather than rifling through the trash, scratching on the furniture or inviting other four-legged friends over for a party, this 6-year-old goldendoodle spends almost the entire video looking for his owner.

    He runs around frantically, howling and yearning for companionship before finally ending up on a pillow that smells like his owner and taking a nap.

    After seeing the footage, Mike wrote on Reddit that he will never leave Guinness home alone again.

    “I’ll probably get another dog… that’s what I’ll do,” Mike said.

    Sometimes all it takes is hidden-camera footage to solidify our friendships.

    You may have been inundated with the engagements and proposals of your friends and family on social media this holiday season. For the most part, the occasions are pretty happy events.

    But some people’s reactions are even more intense and emotional than expected. Take this gal, for instance, who was clearly not expecting this romantic surprise.

    In the video of her Christmas Day proposal, the woman’s boyfriend gifted her a box of letters that spelled out “Will you marry me.” She stays pretty cool until she gets to the letter y. Then she becomes overwhelmed with emotion.

    She ended up saying yes, but we hope the next time her fiancé asks a question, it’s a little less intense.

  • Everyone wants a piece of his or her favorite sports star.

    Unfortunately, for this poor gentleman, his stolen little moment with a Pacers player was caught on camera.

    He, his friends and his family will forever be able to view his deep whiff of forward center Lavoy Allen’s sweaty jersey.

    Observe as he leans in, inhales deeply and really savors the waft of what is most likely a pretty musty scent.
    His facial reaction seems to suggest that the jersey didn’t smell like a rose, but maybe a basketball player’s scent is more like a fine wine and will only get better with time. But probably not.

    The next time this fan needs a souvenir, we recommend that he head to the gift shop.

  • The world has been in need of a superhero monkey, and we may have just found him. A simian in India is being hailed a hero following a harrowing incident at a train station in Kanpur on Dec. 21. When his fellow primate was electrocuted and fell unconscious after walking on high-voltage wires, the rescue monkey went into action. First he tried rubbing and patting the other monkey, and then moved on to a more drastic measure — dipping him in nearby water. Train passengers looked on while snapping photos and shooting video of the incredible rescue. After about 20 minutes, the injured monkey started to show signs of life. From the looks of it, it seems like he will be all right.
