Frozen Alaskan river turns into human bowling lane!18s

Frozen Alaskan river turns into human bowling lane!

What do you do if you&r're a kid at a festival on the frozen Chena River in Alaska? You participate in Moose Turd Bowling, of course! What is this madness you say? It's one of the very unique ways Alaskans (and their kids) enjoy the winter months. There is a carnival-like atmosphere every year as these events are held in downtown Fairbanks, in the interior part of the state. Temperatures on this day dipped down to -20 and -30 below zero. That never stops hearty Alaskans from getting out and enjoying the fun. One of the favorites is Moose Turd Bowling. Alaskans have an odd relationship with our friends the moose, as well as their strange, pellet shaped turds left in piles around the state. And to celebrate that, an inner tube, a giant rubber band, and 10 inflatable plastic bowling-pin-sized turds (plus a little grownup help) are all you need for a little fun on the ice!

Carlos Santana Reunites With Homeless Former Band Member2m51s

Carlos Santana Reunites With Homeless Former Band Member

We all had friends back in school days that we shared most of the time with. Going to school together, going out in town or the night clubs, visiting the same places every day. But, as life goes on, we somehow lose our connections with them and end up without seeing them for years. It’s the moment of reconnecting with some of them that bring joy in our lives year after. In one moment we remember all the funny and interesting stuff we did back in the days. Some of us use people we know to find them or some sort of contact from them, while others use the social media to come to information about their old buddies. If you thought reconnecting with your old friends on the social media is awesome, here is a story for you to listen. Thanks to a Bay Area TV-news reporter, Stanley Roberts, the rock and roll legend Carlos Santana has reunited with Marcus “The Magnificent” Malone, who was once a percussionist in his band, but now is a homeless in Oakland, California. While Stanley was doing a story as part of KRON’s "People Behaving Badly" series about a spot in Oakland that has become a haven for illegal dumping, he found Malone rummaging around the trash and discovered that once he had been a member of the Santana Blues Band until he was incarcerated, right before the band’s 1969 debut album was released. After seeing this on the TV, Santana contacted the station to help him find Malone. The moment the two of them saw each other, they embraced, and Santana spoke about how gracious Malone’s family was to the band in the early days. Santana has since offered his assistance in turning Malone’s life around. Fate has its weird turns, so this encounter coincided with Santana reuniting the original band members for a new project, which meant including Malone as well.

Much like planking and other viral challenges, there's no real point to it other than having fun, and it doesn't matter if you succeed or fail. The main point of this challenge that teenagers have invented is to create an invisible box about a foot or two off the ground by hovering one of your feet in the air, tap it with the other foot, and film yourself stepping over it. In other words, playing the role of a magician and creating the illusion that there is actually a box and you are stepping over. At first glimpse it seems deceptively simple, but if you try to do it, that is when you realize that it is actually really hard. Unless you are super fit and strong and have developed hip flexors to be able to hold your leg in position. So, if you lack hand-eye coordination, leg strength, and what ever else that is required for a successful performance of this move, and you decide to have a go at it, then good luck to yah! It sounds super simple until you actually attempt it yourself. Watch this guy, maybe you will succeed in copying some of his moves!

This is the eight installation of the famous franchise, and judging by the buzz it generated all over social media, it's going to be a big hit. Meanwhile, on the streets of the capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana, Darth Vader decided to go out and cause some ruckus in public. He took one of his trusty stormtroopers and together they roamed the street and stopped cars by plunging lightsabers in them. Just to refresh your memory, Darth Vader was one of the iconic bad guys (turned eventually good right before his demise), the father of jedi Luke and princess Leia. He is known to have a tremendous power over the Force and can manipulate it however he seems fit. This time he didn't use his notorious "force choke" move on any of the people that were around, but he did show off his amazing lightsaber skills. He was obviously having a good day because he also took the time to take some pictures with his fans, and let other people film him while he's doing his thing. He's lucky that Chewbacca, Luke, R2D2 and the gang are not around to stop him. May the Force be with you!

Watch her run from those evil Bergens! Video shows toddler dressed up in pink, flaunting the handmade costume her mother made and successfully transformed her daughter into the Poppy character from the animated movie.

She also sewed Abrielle's dress herself and handmade the ears from fabric. Waters said she created the entire costume in two days and spent $30 on supplies. She was originally going to buy her daughter a costume, but nothing that she found in the store fit her vision, so she was motivated to do it herself.

New Mexico's Singing Highway Plays 'America The Beautiful'1m40s

New Mexico's Singing Highway Plays 'America The Beautiful'

Two years ago, the New Mexico Department of Transportation decided to spice up a particularly desolate stretch of Route 66 between Albuquerque and Tijeras by adding grooves in the road that will play music when you drive over them. Just outside of Tijeras, New Mexico is one of only two "singing roads" in the United States. Installed and paid for by National Geographic as part of their 'Crowd Control' series, it plays 'America the Beautiful' when you do the speed limit. New Mexico’s “Singing Road" was featured on National Geographic Nat-Geo cable channel, as part of the network’s show “Crowd Control". Nat-Geo actually paid for the permanent rumble strips on Route 66 between Albuquerque and Tijeras which plays “America the Beautiful" when you drive over them at the 45 mile per hour speed limit. The show uses fun experiments to change social behavior. The goal of the rhythmic road, at 364 Highway 66 East near Tijears, is to help drivers stay focused, as part of a social experiment to change social behavior. The effect was achieved by placing metal plates in the pavement, which were ther covered by asphalt and rumble strips. You must drive the speed limit in order to hear the road “sing"; go to slow or too fast and it won’t work.

Free Divers Hold Their Breath And Battle It Out Under Water33s

Free Divers Hold Their Breath And Battle It Out Under Water

In the crystal waters of the Caribbean Sea these two free divers battle it out on one breath and only one "survives". Take a look at this extreme showdown! If this were on dry land, it would probably qualify as something of a medley between The Matrix, superhero movies and wire fu! The added suspension from the thickness of sea water makes all those precisely choreographed moves look like piece of cake! They kick and toss each other in the water and, even though there is some royalty-free music playing in the background, we can almost imagine the verbal fight going on between them! “You can’t stop me, fool!” “It is time to meet your end!” Who knows how long they shot these scenes, however, when you take into consideration how long these freedivers can hold their breath, we think it is safe to say that it was no hassle for them! In ancient times freediving without the aid of mechanical devices was the only possibility, with the exception of the occasional use of reeds and leather breathing bladders. The divers faced the same problems as divers today, such as decompression sickness and blacking out during a breath hold. Freediving was practiced in ancient cultures to gather food, harvest resources such as sponge and pearl, reclaim sunken valuables, and to help aid military campaigns. Nowadays, freediving spans over several subcategories, such as spearfishing and collection of shellfish, but also in competitive sports, like competitive spearfishing, synchronised swimming, underwater hockey, underwater football, even underwater rugby!
