  • The birth of rare twin baby giant pandas at Zoo Atlanta made quite a stir when they were born back in July. Earlier this month, when they turned 100 days old, they were finally given names, Mei Lun and Mei Huan. But the best part? The Zoo recently released a video on its YouTube page showing the incredible progress of their first 100 days. Check out the cuteness here:

    One commenter on YouTube wondered if the cubs would be better off receiving care from their mother. Zoo Atlanta responded by writing “In the wild, giant panda moms typically care for only one cub when twins are born. Thus, it is normal in the wild for only one of the twins to survive.” Before the adorable video was posted, fans of Mei Lun and Mei Huan were to able to check in on their growth by viewing their webcam on the zoo’s website.

  • Admit it, you've taken a selfie or two. But if you haven't, congratulations. In any case, no matter how hard you try, you could never match the collection of self-taken photos amassed by Vanessa Sky Ellis. Over the years, the 26-year-old New York native has taken what she estimates to be about 10,000 photos with celebrities running the gamut of entertainment. Among the stars featured in some of her favorites are Matt Damon, Tom Cruise, and Mariah Carey. But she says her favorite is Johnny Depp. "He might be 50, but he's beautiful," she says. Ellis says she has sometimes spent 12 hours in a single day searching for celebrities on the streets of New York City. Her mother, who died of a heart attack in 2007, passed the hobby on to Ellis, and it's obvious that her daughter has perfected the technique. In her spare time, Ellis works as a bartender, which keeps her father from worrying that she spends too much time taking photos. But maybe he should be concerned about her

  • Macklemore is a chart topping musician with adoring fans all over the world. And when his tour rolled into Utah last Saturday, fans were thrilled to see him walking around outside of the Maverik Center. The only thing was, it wasn’t Macklemore. Instead it was Salt Lake City-based comedian Andrew Hales, a Macklemore look-a-like and prankster. Hales is part of the YouTube prank group LAHWF. In a recent video he is seen dressed up like Macklemore and heading down to the Maverik Center with his LAHWF entourage in tow.

    Fans went crazy, creating crowds around Hales and snapping pictures of and with him. Not only were fans duped, but Hales even got interviewed by a radio station outside of the venue.

    Next, Hales tried to get past Maverik Center security for entry to the show and it actually worked! The shocked and excited entourage walked into the venue and into a bathroom. After Maverik Center management had a few minutes to realize what was going on, they kicked Hales and his crew out.

  • Sixteen months ago a car accident forever changed Mackenzie Gorden's life. Doctors told her parents their 18-year-old daughter would never walk again. But Mackenzie was determined to prove them wrong, especially since she was asked to be the maid of honor at her sister Brittany's wedding. Her story is featured in a special report for the Denver Post: "Stepping Toward Hope: My Sister's Wedding."

    The Lake City, Iowa, teen worked for months at a groundbreaking paralysis-recovery training center in Colorado. Never giving up, the courageous high school senior kept working toward her goal of walking down the aisle. And on the day of her sister's wedding, Mackenzie wheeled up to the ceremony and did the impossible. With the help of her brother on one side and the best man on the other, she walked as best as she could down the aisle to join the bridesmaids at the altar.

  • Around this time of year, even the most mundane scene can be something used to inspire fear. Or maybe it's just that clowns and dolls, and especially clown dolls, are creepy on their own. YouTube user Nick Packauskas posted this video, titled, scarily, 'CLOWNFUN,' where it's been scaring people for a couple of days. He simply put this bizarre clown doll next to some child dolls, played a music box, and let peoples' natural fear take course. Hopefully that'll get you in the spirit for further creepiness come Halloween itself. Do you know of any creepy videos you can share? Tell us on Facebook, or @YahooTrending.
