Check Out The Hilarious Moment When Parrot Recognizes Himself In Camera Phone

Ever since cell phone manufacturers started making front facing cameras a regular part of their products, people have been divided in accepting them. While some hate the gadget with every ounce of their being, thinking it makes them look broader and uglier than normal, others revel in the existence of a camera where you can actually see how you pose, so that you catch the best possible selfie ever! This is the first time George the African Grey Parrot sees himself in a camera phone on selfie mode. As soon as his owner asks him who is in the video, he comes over to look and then laughs when he sees himself. He then proceeds to test the camera by barking at it and trying out other words and phrases he likes to see if in fact it is him. He even plays peekaboo with the camera! When he finally comes to the conclusion that this is in fact him, he says,"Oh, it's George!" Then he starts sending even more kisses and asking for them in return, because, hey, that is one handsome Grey Parrot. What a character! Another probably very distant cousin of George is the famous Einstein. That Grey Parrot is world famous for his antics in front of the camera and as a real star, he just can’t get enough of watching himself in the mirror. The moment he recognizes his face, he starts kissing the reflection, before adoringly waving good bye. Hope these two cracked you up as much as they did us.

Here's The Truth Behind The Photo Of Firefighters That's Being Shared All Over Facebook This Week49s

Here's The Truth Behind The Photo Of Firefighters That's Being Shared All Over Facebook This Week

There’s been a lot of turmoil happening with natural disasters in the last few months. Between the devastation of Hurricane Harve, followed by the monstrous Irma, it’s likely that you’ve been focusing on these tragedies that are closest to home — something that’s extremely reasonable. But, for anyone who maybe hasn’t heard, the people of Portugal are struggling with their own natural disaster that’s been dragging on for months now. Forest fires are currently raging through central Portugal as a result of dry conditions unbefitting for the season, as well as random lightning strikes on June 17. Since then, the fires have killed at least 65 people and injured another one 150 souls, as well as caused millions of dollars in property damage and natural resources. On the front lines of the struggle to put out this deadly blaze are a brave group of firefighters. Over 1600 trained firefighters, and another 300 soldiers have worked around the clock, using more than 700 vehicles and 11 aircraft. Since the fire spread so quickly, the firefighters have been tirelessly working for almost three months, heading off the flames and doing their best to evacuate locals. That brings us to this popular Facebook photo taken by Pedro Bras, which shows a group of about 14 male and female firefighters laying out on a stretch of grass. Most people found it unbecoming for the firefighters who are supposed to keep us safe, proving it is better to assume the worst. But these brave men and women have been working round the clock to tame those blazing tongues, it was only a matter of time before they needed some well deserved rest, wherever that might be!

Mean Kitty Talks Back To Owner, Then Attacks Camera31s

Mean Kitty Talks Back To Owner, Then Attacks Camera

This is one of those weirdly scary videos. Most people would say that some breed of dogs cannot be kept as house pets due to the fact that they are vicious. In this case we have a cat that has possibly gone mad. It first look like any other cat video, she is cute, cuddly until she doesn't get it her way. Her approach is strong and mean but no one could have guessed that she would react the way she did. Her posture is very proud and she keeps talking back to her owner after being denied a couple of times over. Even though, she doesn't let up. Keeps meowing even though she is been told "no" several times. Her owner is obviously very patient and outgoing while the cat is out looking to create a problem. Her persistence doesn't let up and her will just gets stronger. After being denied a few times she decides to take action and take matter into her own paws. After her owner denies her for the "last" time she takes a stance and jumps toward her owner which is very clear to see, pushing her owners camera right out of her hands. This is quite the scary scene! Check out the exchange between this cat and its owner. That ending is shocking!

Man Fails At Properly Removing Hornet's Nest59s

Man Fails At Properly Removing Hornet's Nest

If you're going to take down a hornet's nest, make sure you're a fast runner... and don't forget to leave the door unlocked! A man found a nest of hornets in the crown of one of the trees in his front yard. Now, the hornets weren’t doing anything really and the cells were full of larvae. Naturally, man needs to show off his manly side, so what can he do to come out more macho? That’s right, he takes a long wooden stick and takes a swing at the nest! It is like a scene from one of those old cartoons. The same instant he swung at the tree, the adult hornets swung after him. You can run, but you cannot hide from their wrath, big boy! It might be your first instinct, but those things can fly up to 30 miles per hour, and that is not your best result. Even the guy recording the entire stunt can be heard saying: “Idiot!” Because an idiot he surely is. In case you ever come across a hornet's nest on your own property, there are a few steps you can take to make it easier and safer for you. If it’s in the early months of development, say some time after winter and the nest is smaller than a tennis ball, you can use something tough and heavy to smash it, like a brick. If it’s much later, when the nest is much larger and the workers are inhabiting it, take a red light and a hornet jet spray that can spray at a longer distance (make sure it is labeled ‘jet spray’) and wait until it is about 9 or 10 PM, when the workers are asleep. Spray directly at the hornets’ hole and at least for some ten second, for successful removal.
