  • Usually a collision on the highway would means injuries are sure to follow, but what happens in this video ends in a completely unexpected manner. The incredible nature of the chain of events will most likely cause you to watch the footage a couple of times.

    At first, it just looks like a normal drive on a bridge, when suddenly, a motorcycle comes into view and goes full speed into another vehicle in front of it. What's astonishing is that the rider doesn't go down. Instead, the motorcyclist goes full-on Spider-Man and appears to land on the roof of the car he or she collided with.

    Differing accounts place it in either Russia or Belarus. Like many other incredible videos, the 30-second clip is recorded on a dashboard camera, which has become more popular in former Soviet states as a way to film potentially corrupt police.

    Now some are claiming that the video is too incredible to be real, but what do you think? Is it legit? 

    Let us know in the comments below.

  • Wedding season is upon us. It's understandable that some people get cold feet, but this guy went to extremes to avoid getting married — by faking his own death.

    Tucker Blandford, 23, met his bride-to-be, Alex Lanchester, in August 2012 at a college in Connecticut. They hit it off and quickly fell in love.

    Lanchester, from the United Kingdom, was studying abroad for a year. When that year was up, they shared a tearful goodbye at the airport, where Blandford got down on one knee and proposed.

    They were to be married on Aug. 15. Lanchester spent over $1,000 on wedding invitations, the photographer, the wedding dress, and other preparations. Blandford even booked a venue on the campus where they had met.

    Then one day Lanchester got a phone call from a man identifying himself as Tucker's "dad," saying his son had been depressed and had "thrown himself in front of a car," ending his life.

    Devastated, she called Tucker's mother to offer condolences. Tucker's mother told Lanchester that her

  • Tom Hanks famously yelled, "There's no crying in baseball!" in the 1992 film "A League of Their Own."

    Fast-forward to the Little League World Series Monday night. Coach and manager Dave Belisle of Rhode Island's Cumberland American All-Stars stopped the waterworks by giving an inspiring speech to his little guys after they were eliminated after a close game with Jackie Robinson West, 8-7.

    As most of the kids in the huddle cried, Belisle had them lift their heads and look him in the eye. Coach got a little sentimental himself before finally bringing the boys in for one last team hug.

    In the press room after the game, Belisle said, "They definitely learned what the word pride is."

    Belisle added, "I got a lot of attention here for how I coach. It's easy for me to coach like that when you have such wonderful kids that dedicate themselves, that respect you as much as I respect them … They gave me a summer of my life that I'll never forget."

    What did you think of the coach's speech? Let us

  • Three teenage siblings from Georgia came up with a high-tech way to report any interactions with police — good or bad.

    It is a smartphone app called Five-O. Across the nation, people who buy the app can use it to document every step of an encounter with police.

    The app has several functions. There is a "Know Your Rights" tab that summarizes what your rights are when you are stopped by the police, while the community message forums discuss local law enforcement issues.

    It's like a Yelp of sorts but for local police officers instead of restaurants, so users can complete incident reports to gauge good and bad behavior, with aims to increase efficiency, set positive examples, and in negative cases, serve as a starting point for problem-solving.

    The creators behind the app are 16-year-old Ima, 15-year-old Asha, and their brother, 14-year-old Caleb Christian.

    "We've been hearing about the negative instances in the news, for instance most recently the Michael Brown case, and we always talk about

  • You've heard of a jellyfish sting, maybe you've even experienced one. But have you ever seen one?

    When a jellyfish actually stings someone or something, the action is often too small and too fast to see with the naked eye. This video, however, captures a real-life sting in slow motion!

    Destin from SmarterEveryDay visited toxinologist Dr. Jamie Seymour, one of the team members present when Steve Irwin, "The Crocodile Hunter," was fatally stung by a stingray in 2006.

    At James Cook University in Australia, researchers used a microscope and high-speed camera to discover what exactly happens when a jellyfish, or in this specific case, an anemone, stings you. They have wanted to capture the process on camera for years, but only now has the technology been able to do so.

    Instead of thinking it's just tentacles dragging across your skin and leaving venom behind, what actually happens it that an organelle (a  specific subunit within a cell with a special function) called a nematocyst takes the
