  • When mom’s away the owls will play.

    This adorable owl dance-off is brought to you by wildlife photographer Megan Lopez. Lopez left a GoPro in her front yard and captured the burrowing owls bouncing around.

    Sadly, the little guys were not dancing around the yard to Aquadrop; this piece was edited to the beat.

    But this doesn’t make the video any less cute. Since it was posted on Feb. 7, it has gone viral with over 321,000 views, and YouTube commenters love the little critters.

    HighSpeedPhantom writes, “Seriously, I need a 10 minute version.”

    Golighty678 commented, “Too cute! Never have seen these little guys”

  • When a young man came into a Raleigh, N.C., Target store to buy a clip-on tie for a Chick-fil-A job interview, he was told they were all out. Then, employee Dennis Roberts offered to show him how to tie a standard tie. Shopper Audrey Mark noticed the tie tutorial, snapped a picture and posted it to the store’s Facebook page. It’s been liked and shared thousands of times. The teen, whose name is still unknown, got more than just a lesson in fashion. Roberts offered some interview tips, too. He told ABC-11 that he instructed the teen to “make sure you look them in the eye” and “make sure you give them a stern handshake. … He tucked his shirt in and tied his shoes.”
    Audrey Mark said as the young man left the store, a few of the employees wished him luck and said “come back and tell us how it went.” The group from the store even went to Chick-fil-A to see if the teen landed the job, but the manager said he had not yet made a decision.

  • Mary had a little … dog?

    Meet Pet, a little lamb that grew up with four border collies and now thinks she’s one of them.

    Pet’s owner, Jemma Mackenzie, posted a series of adorable YouTube videos of the lamb trying to fit in with her dog buddies.

    “She thinks the oldest dog ... is her mother,” Mackenzie wrote on YouTube, “Sleeping in the same basket and following her everywhere from a very young age!”

    Mackenzie told the Daily Mail that Pet enjoys going on daily walks with the dogs and even tries to wag her tail.

    Unfortunately for Pet, the dogs have not really taken her in as one of their own. In the videos, they mostly just stare at her. But Pet is persistent as he tries to fit in with her adopted family. You do you Pet!

  • When two black bear cubs named Mike and Ike lost their mother to a deer hunting accident, they were taken to the Woodlands Wildlife Refuge in Pittstown, N.J. After Ike sadly died over the weekend due to unknown causes, the center along with the website NJ Advance Media thought of a way to bring attention to Mike’s ongoing recovery… A live webcam!
    The refuge center’s executive director, Tracy Leaver, said, “We hope this inside look at the rehabilitation effort here at Woodlands will serve to educate the public,” adding, “We want to engage and educate the public about black bears.” Eventually, Mike will be introduced to his surrogate mother. Until then, you can watch the live camera 24 hours a day on the Woodlands Wildlife website. While you’re there, you can also donate and help rehabilitate animals back into the wild. Just a note of caution: The center says it’s not responsible for bodily functions that occur between feedings and warns that the little guy may sometimes crawl out of

  • It’s 2015, and if “Back to the Future” is to be believed, that means that we are a few short months away from flying cars and hoverboards.  
    Enter prankster magician Rahat. Armed with an orange puffy vest, Rahat went to a local park and tried to see how many people would believe he was actually using a hoverboard.

    As expected, the reactions were pretty priceless, and almost everyone believed he was floating in the air!

    So how does he pull off the stunt? He’s not giving away his secret, but he explains in the video that it’s a combination of a magician’s levitation trick with what looks like a hoverboard attached to his feet.

    The video has gone viral with more than 391,000 views since it was posted on Wednesday.  

    Pretty impressive, but can he come up with 1.21 jigowatts?
