  • Are you looking for a last-minute Christmas gift for your kangaroo? Probably not, but if you were, you should definitely cross a drone off your list. It goes without saying that kangaroos are not animals you want to mess with. One unfortunate drone operator learned that the hard way while on a mission to film a group of the marsupials in the wine region of Hunter Valley in Australia. When the drone came in for a close-up shot, one member of the pack who wanted its privacy respected, used a very kangaroo-like method of dealing with the device — by punching it to the ground.

    The protective Joey damaged the drone, but luckily for us the footage was recovered. We should mention that it could have ended much worse for the drone — remember the viral video of the kangaroo street brawl?

  • Workin’ 9 to 5 is a way to make a living — however commuting 1,204 miles to get to work will probably drive you crazy if you let it.

    Just ask Ian Bearce. It takes him six hours to get to and from work.

    The man travels from Minneapolis to New York City and back on a weekly basis for his job at design company The Mill.

    Explaining his commute, he says, “I drive to the airport, park, take the airport shuttle, get to my gate about 10 minutes before we board, and usually go back to sleep for a portion of the flight, and then take a train or bus to the office, sometimes both, depending on which airport I land at. [I] get into the office around 12:30, just in time for a conference call, usually.”

    Ian says his job is amazing and worth it, and he has never considered relocating his service and devotion to NYC.

    He is just one of the many “super commuters,” a growing population of folks who commute 90 minutes or more because they choose to live in a rural environment but work in a metropolis.

  • There’s a tiny home located way up in the Swiss Alps that you have to see to believe.  

    The studio house, dubbed Antoine, was designed by Bureau A, an architectural design firm. The concept came from the work of renowned Swiss writer Charles-Ferdinand Ramuz, who died in 1947. In his novel “Derborence,” the main character, Antoine, lives through a landslide and survives seven weeks under the rocks of the Alpine valley. According to the designers, the home is meant to mimic the "strong tradition of observing the Alps, living with them, hiding inside them."

    The residence, meant for one person, was built in just six weeks offsite and was transported to a sculpture park up high on the mountain. It comes equipped with a small bed, a foldup table, a window, and yes, even a fireplace. Underneath the airbrushed, fake rock material sits a normal, small cabin.

    No word yet if anyone will actually get to live in the tiny rock home. But if someone does get the opportunity, he or she should just be

  • Knowing this, IKEA in Spain conducted a holiday experiment for its recent campaign.

    It gathered 10 families and asked the children from each to jot down two Christmas wish lists.

    The first was written to “The Three Kings,” which is the Spanish equivalent to Santa. The second Christmas wish list was for their parents.

    The difference between the letters is heartwarming.

    The letters they wrote to the Three Kings are full of the usual requests of children for unicorns and extravagant toys.

    The letters they wrote to their parents, though, were for things that only a parent can give a child — love, attention and comfort.

    IKEA’s little experiment may show both kids and parents that what children really want to fill their home this holiday season isn’t necessarily found under a tree. It’s what surrounds it.

    A loving home, according to the children in this ad, is the best Christmas gift of all.
