  • Everybody knows that it’s impolite not to answer the phone when it rings, but sometimes it’s just too far away.

    Then there is Jax the cat, who runs to answer the phone every time it rings before probably realizing it’s not a cat on the other line.

    Leah Dolly Brunton uploaded a short video of Jax answering the phone to YouTube with the caption: “So my mother in law thought I was hanging up on her every time she rang turns out my wee cat jax had been answering and hanging up. When I finally realised what he had been doing we managed to capture it on camera.”

    It’s OK, Jax, that call probably wasn’t that important anyway! It’s the thought that counts.

  • Looking for a new, challenging way to solve the Rubik's Cube? Well, Chris Walker could give you a suggestion or two, if you don’t mind extreme conditions.

    Walker jumped out of a plane and solved a Rubik Cube during a free fall before pulling open his parachute.

    He filmed the whole thing and uploaded the video to YouTube with the caption: “Whats the most extreme situation to solve a rubix cube?
    ok maybe if its attached to an explosive or you’re on fire.. but this is definitely top 5”

    Walker may not have broken any records for shortest completion time, but we’ll let that go because solving a Rubik’s Cube is hard enough for most of us on the ground — we can’t imagine what it would be like in free fall.

  • Over-the-top creative pregnancy announcement videos are beginning to feel like they’re a dime a dozen. Enter YouTube star Tom Fletcher and his wife, Giovanna, who blow the rest of the competition out of the water.

    The couple announced they were expecting by posting a video to YouTube titled, “Player 2,” with the caption, “Player Two Loading.”

    In the video, Fletcher climbs into the attic of his home and brings down a dusty Sega Mega drive console. After setting up the game, Fletcher sits beside his wife, with his 1-year-old, Buzz, in his lap.

    After he sets Buzz up as Player 1, the words “Player 1 ready” appear next to him. When Giovanna goes to set up Player 2, she selects the question mark on the screen — and the camera cuts to her stomach and a picture of an ultrasound. The words “Player 2 Loading” pop up next to her.

    Congratulations Tom and Giovanna! You both have certainly stepped up the pregnancy announcement game, we aren’t sure who will be able to top it.

  • Yabba dabba doo! The iconic “Flintstones House,” located just outside San Francisco, is for sale! This little piece of Bedrock can be all yours for $4.2 million.

    The landmark home was designed in 1976 by Bay Area architect William Nicholson. According to an Alain Pinel Realtors, Nicholson designed the exterior using experimental architecture and nontraditional building materials.

    But it's the bubble-like reddish domes and stone exterior that earned the house its nickname.

    This is the first time in 19 years that the house has been on the market, and despite its Stone Age look, it has a pretty modern price tag.

    Potential buyers please note: The price does not include any dinosaurs.

  • Surfers may be known for their laid-back attitude and style, but one pro surfer has upgraded her look from a typical bathing suit to a black dress and heels.

    Maud Le Car, 23, posted a video of herself surfing in a lacy dress and high heels — a pretty impressive accomplishment for those of us who have a hard enough time just walking in heels!

    Le Car is ranked one of the 15 top surfers in the world, and this video certainly showcases her talent.

    The YouTube description reads, "Pro surfer Maud Le Car wants you to know that female pro surfers can look [glamorous and be talented] at the same time. She wants to prove that surfing is not just about [glamour]. Surfing is one of the most physically demanding sports [out] there today."

    Point taken.
