Occurred on March 13, 2019 / Caringbah, New South Wales, Australia Info from Licensor: "After a huge day at work, Simmo rushed to pick up his beloved Trailcraft fishing boat from the marine mechanic before it closed. Exhausted he arrived home and was checking everything out. Having seen the mechanic used the trailer hand brake, he dismissed his usual routine of chain and chocks. The instant he released the chain the boat took off. Now, there was no way on earth he was going to lose his boat. So he held on for dear life, managing to steer it to safety.

Husband Makes The Mistake Of Asking For A More Exotic Dinner53s

Husband Makes The Mistake Of Asking For A More Exotic Dinner

They say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach and Kristy knows how to get to his husband’s heart through his stomach, and this video will show you creative and incredible cook she is! Kristy is an exceptional cook, and her creations are far more delicious and elaborate than her husband, Dave deserves. But Dave is as saucy as some of the meals he gets, so he often makes comments and jokes about Kristy's cooking. Kristy knows how much Dave loves her food, and she takes it all in stride, but she also has a saucy side. She also knows that giving her husband exactly what he asks for might just be the best lesson possible. After a particularly busy day, Kristy mentioned that she had lined up sausages for dinner with some potatoes and vegetables. She was looking for something quick and easy, and she had already been cooking all sorts of tasty dishes in the days leading up to this. Dave pretended to be disappointed, and he told her that plain old sausages would just have to do if there was nothing fancier or more exotic on the menu, as he had grown accustomed to. Dave knew where things were headed when he saw the look on her face that told him she was up for the challenge and had thoughts of putting him in his place. Kristy and Dave had recently been to the Galapagos Islands and had seen all sorts of wildlife, including the giant Galapagos tortoises. He watched in amazement as Kristy constructed a large tortoise using the sausages and some bacon. She weaved the strips of bacon together to make what looked remarkably like the shell of a giant tortoise. She made a large meatball out of sausage and had sausage legs and a head. She made a little bacon tail and propped it all up with wedges of sweet potato so it would cook in the right position. After tucking the bacon underneath and finishing off a very impressive likeness of a tortoise, Kristy looked at Dave triumphantly. With a smirk, she asked him if this was “exotic enough” for him. Dave had to concede that he had never been served turtle before and that it was indeed anything but plain old sausage. As expected, sausages wrapped in bacon are extremely delicious . Kristy won the challenge on this round, but Dave made out very well too.

Curious Kangaroo Charges Paraglider38s

Curious Kangaroo Charges Paraglider

Humans have this funny characteristic of associating certain human qualities with animals in the wilderness. One explanation why we do this is in attempt to make these highly unpredictable wild animals familiar to us. So the lion becomes heroic and brave, the donkey is stubborn, the wolf is a loner, the fox is tricky and the cat is extremely curious. Sure, they exhibit some of these behaviors and traits, but it is more likely than not their natural survival instinct kicking in, rather than any human-like behavior on their part. This means that a cat can be stubborn, a wolf can be curious and a fox can be brave, no matter how we stereotype them. We have long lived with the saying “curiosity killed the cat” but it appears that cats aren't the only ones who enjoy curious enough to chase red laser dots. In fact watch as these playful fish go right into action! Their owner is extremely entertained by their antics as they mindlessly follow the fluorescent red dot appearing in their makeshift habitat. They often hit a dead end or the rocks in their pursuit, but that doesn’t stop them from trying to catch it. Lets take for instance someone coming into your home without your permission? Now that you have that question sorted out we bet this kangaroo feels the same. Lets hear a couple of words from the paraglider. "I had been Paragliding cross country for two hours near Canberra and had reached a position where I had to land. I was concentrating on the landing and didn't notice the Kangaroo until after I landed. As it ran towards me I thought it was being friendly so I said 'What's Up, Skip?' It then attacked me twice before hopping away." We feel that this guy should consider himself lucky taking into consideration that this situation could have gone much worse due to the possessive nature of the kangaroo. However this time they felt mercy and chose to leave the human be. What do you think about this video? Make sure you tell us more in the comments down below. If you like what you see, don’t forget to share it with others who might like it as well. It just might be the highlight of their day! Enjoy!

Scammer calls off duty cop and gets a response he never expected2m26s

Scammer calls off duty cop and gets a response he never expected

Phone scammers are constantly trying to come up with new ways to get people to give up their money. They prey on the elderly, the gullible, the fearful, and anyone naive enough to believe them. They are the lowest of the low. A popular ruse over the past few years has been the CRA scam. The CRA is the Canada Revenue Agency, which is the Canadian equivalent of the IRS. The plot is always the same and the caller is authoritative and threatening. He leaves a message that tells the victim that they have committed tax fraud and that they have failed to declare income. They have reported the matter to the police authorities and an arrest warrant has been issued. The caller identifies himself as an officer who is sending the local police to drag the offender off to jail. Surprisingly, a substantial percentage of people actually fall for the scam and they pay the caller the amount that they believe they owe the government. Conveniently, this payment can be made through iTunes, or similar internationally recognized currency. What this scammer doesn’t realize is that he has left a message at the home of “Dave”, a police officer, who has actually received many complaints about this scam and spends a good part of his week at work warning people about similar ploys. Dave decided to return the call and have a little fun with the pretend officer at the other end. He ended up speaking to “Officer Johns” of the Toronto Police. The officer told Dave not to interrupt and then he explained the alleged fraud for $2399. Much of the long-winded allegation has been edited out to shorten this video, but we can hear that Officer Johns was sending the Millbrook RCMP and the local sheriff to handcuff Dave. He doesn’t understand that there is no such thing as a Sheriff of Millbrook, or even the Millbrook RCMP. If anyone was going to arrest Dave at his home, the call would actually have come through the dispatchers of the Ontario Provincial Police and one of Dave’s coworkers would have been sent to do it. Dave pleaded with the fraudster, asking if he could explain his story to the police, but he was told that there would be no listening and no mercy. There would only be a prompt and unfriendly arrest. Being very confident that nobody was actually coming to arrest him, Dave took the stapler from his desk and began opening and closing it, imitating the racking action of a shot gun. Trying to sound like a desperate man who has run out of options, he declared that he would blast anyone who came to take him away because he “was not going to jail”. The fraudster left Dave with one last threat that the police were on the way and then he hung up. It seems obvious that he realized he had pushed Dave over the edge of reason. If you get a call from anyone who asks for money, phone your local police to verify that it’s legitimate. In almost all cases, it’s a scam.

Large wave drenches tourist trying to get video of whales26s

Large wave drenches tourist trying to get video of whales

The Galapagos Sky is a small cruise ship that takes 16 tourists on a remote and incredible adventure to the outermost reaches around the Galapagos Islands. Embarking on a dive adventure that would lead them to Wolf and Darwin Islands to meet hammerhead sharks and whale sharks, these tourists were watching the beautiful scenery and catching an occasional glimpse of pilot whales and fin whales. One brave Canadian tourist decided to wander up front, despite the waves, to try to capture a whale breach on video. What he caught instead was the slap of a large wave that came crashing over the bow. Quickly deciding that the lower deck wasn't the best place to be in rough seas, he made a hasty retreat. He couldn't help but laugh when he realized that the boat captain had been able to see the whole episode from the bridge, and he was laughing even harder. The two of them had a very different perspective on the same event. As an afterthought, he can be seen checking that the camera is still working to make sure the salt water hasn't wrecked it. Our Canadian friend also had some explaining to do when he went back inside the ship, dripping wet to join the other tourists. The Galapagos Sky is an amazing ship, with a crew that prides themselves on service that is beyond anybody's expectations. The one week tour took these adventurous scuba divers to one of the most remote, hostile, and beautiful places on the planet. Several BBC series have been produced that describe this magical and unforgiving world. As a dive destination, it is second to none. These guests saw unique birds, marine iguanas, several different species of sharks, and the most sought after creature of all, the magnificent whale shark. Their trip to this remote paradise was truly the adventure of a lifetime.

Dudes At Beach Pull Off Hilarious Inflatable Illusion15s

Dudes At Beach Pull Off Hilarious Inflatable Illusion

The beach is a wild place in which we get to abandon the stresses of everyday life and instead focus on what makes us happy, like pretending to pump up an inflatable tube man with the help of your friends. This group seems to be having a lot of fun doing just that! In the video, a man has been buried in the sand from his knees down. His friend mimes that he’s pumping an air pump, and all the sudden the man buried in the sand seems to be inflating! Once he’s reached maximum air capacity, he does a funny dance just like those wacky, wailing, wavy, inflatable arm tube men from used car lots. Not only is this video incredibly funny, but it’s also a great example of the types of ridiculously fun things that you and your friends can do at the beach. Looking for something else fun to do using the sand? Here’s a few ideas: One thing that’s super fun to do when you’re at the beach with your friends is to dig your own fire pit! Simply grab several friends and dig a huge hole in the sand, carving out a bench-like seating area and a space in the center to put a small fire. With a lot of friends, the digging part is pretty quick. And then you’re left with the coolest fire pit around that will leave everyone on the beach jealous. Another fun thing to do in the sand is to throw a sand castle contest with all of your buddies. Try thinking outside of the box and going for something a little more artistic or funny rather than just a regular sand castle. You could sculpt your own ironic snowman out of sand, or make yourself a giant sand mermaid. And whoever wins the contest could get an awesome prize! If all of this sounds like too much work to you, you could always just try these guys’ trick yourself and attempt to inflate your friend on the beach. It’s always good for a fun time! So, the next time you take a trip to the beach side, just lay back on your towel and relax. Watch the seagulls , look for seashells, enjoy the breeze. And if you’re feeling up for it, hey! You could even bury your friend in the sand. Just make sure that you dig them up again, okay?

How To Shovel Snow In -42 Degree Minnesota13s

How To Shovel Snow In -42 Degree Minnesota

Those who live in cold climates know that shoveling snow can be a tiring and arduous task. It can take some thought and perhaps a little creativity to lighten up the work. Here’s a short video clip of a guy who’s managed to do just that! An initial glance at the video thumbnail doesn’t reveal the true intrigue of this clip. Viewers will perhaps catch on to what’s happening when they hear the recognizable sound of ice skates. A man dressed in seemingly normal work attire is seen removing snow from his driveway with a snow shovel, while on ice skates. Ice skating reminds us of hockey and winter olympic games – both of include competition and battle for supremacy. In this case the ice skates are part of a life-long battle against the elements. Hopefully the time spent shoveling snow will is helping to improve his skills on the ice. There’s a good chance that a man with his skills on skates also participates in hockey or another ice sport. It’s worth noting that concrete and asphalt naturally retain warmth from the sun’s rays, absorbed during daylight. Ice skates don’t work well on asphalt or concrete, there must be a sheet of ice present. Temperatures in this video are reported to be as low as -42 degrees. That kind of cold is required to produce ice-skating conditions on surfaces such as asphalt and concrete. While viewing the video, one may assume that icy conditions of this type would only occur in places like northern Canada or perhaps Alaska. However, the video creators report that this clip was filmed in Minnesota, USA. Surprisingly, Minnesota has hot summers, and very cold winters – perhaps a variety of weather not seen many places elsewhere in the United States of America. While people are often shocked at below freezing temperatures on many parts of the USA , Minnesota is in fact known for below freezing temperatures during winter. Although -42 degrees is extremely cold, temperatures are reported to reach as low as -60 during the coldest snaps. Snow plays a prominent role in this video, and some northern parts of Minnesota can receive as much as 170 inches of snow! It is worth noting that the Great Lakes play a major role in the climate of Minnesota. Perhaps we can all take a lesson from the gentleman seen ice-skating while working in this video. A little creativity and a good attitude can turn the heaviest of tasks in to something more enjoyable and productive.

Canadian reveals secret to beating the cold and climate change1m28s

Canadian reveals secret to beating the cold and climate change

The cold weather has been making headlines and causing sensation all over North America. Severe weather warnings have created panic and prompted discussions about how to survive the polar vortex that could sweep the continent. Predictions of record low temperatures and freezing winds have left us wondering if this is a result of climate change. And those who deny climate change exists are claiming that it's proof that global warming is a myth. Amid all the panic and debate, there is a sure way to prevent the cold from becoming a problem in your country. After the forest fires that swept California, President Donald Trump made the headlines with his explanation of how Finland prevents forest fires through forest management. Raking the forest floors prevents a buildup of combustible materials that would ultimately lead to disaster. Inspired by the President's insight, this Canadian came to realize that the same logic can save us all from the cold. Canadians know that the cold weather is actually caused by snow. Since there is almost always snow during cold weather, and Canada gets its share of both, there must be a solid connection between the two. It only stands to reason then that getting rid of the snow will also get rid of the cold. This is crucially important with the coming polar vortex. Obviously, the same principal applies in both situations, and forest management is the key to dealing with this. If we all rake our forests and then dispose of the snow properly, the cold will no longer be a threat to us. Disposing of the snow doesn’t have to be a problem either. It can simply be sold online and shipped to the north where it is actually needed. With all the concern over melting glaciers and polar ice caps, dumping snow on them will solve that issue too. It will be an end to the problems associated with global warming and climate change. The President isn’t too worried about climate change and with his great ideas about raking, we don’t need to be concerned either. Rake your country great again!

Mom Hilariously Busts Out Dance Moves On Highway While Stuck In Storm1m18s

Mom Hilariously Busts Out Dance Moves On Highway While Stuck In Storm

What do you do when you're stuck in snow traffic for four hours? You can do what this mom did and crank up the Backstreet Boys and get out and break a move. This mom and her kids were traveling on I-25 during a winter storm, when traffic had stalled. Boredom kicks in (and I might add that after several hours, perhaps insanity). Moms love their kids and they love interacting with them and getting their reactions. The cold and the snow didn't dampen her spirits though. She found some danceable music and pumped up the tunes. To the embarrassment of her teenage boy and the entertainment of her daughter (who was filming the ordeal), this happy-go-lucky mother made the highway her dance floor. Walking up and down between other motorists, vainly hoping she might inspire them to get out of their cars, she never missed a beat and never lowered her spirits. For some people the snow brings out the crankiness. For others, perhaps nostalgia or feelings of wanting to spend time with family. But for many others, there is a sparkle of energy and the desire to get out and play in it. What is it that brings out those feelings? Is it the freshness of the pure white snow ? Is it that the snow has cleaned the contaminants out of the otherwise polluted air? Maybe there is a scientific explanation as to what brings people outside in the cold to make snowballs, snow creatures and to walk through the crunchy white stuff? Who knows? What we do know is that a layer of snow on the ground brings out the child in even the oldest of us. We’ll brave the cold and even handle the snow and ice until our fingers are numb. We'll walk through the slush (as the girl filming this video) and get our shoes and clothing wet and it doesn’t seem to matter. We'll throw snowballs at each other and maybe even involve our neighbors or complete strangers who may or may not even want to be in on it. The playfulness is contagious. The mere mention of snow makes the childlike heart skip a beat and run for the windows to see the flakes descending from the heavens. In this case this playful mom couldn’t resist the call to get out and dance, eliciting a multitude of different feelings from other motorists and most of all, her children .

Dad Hilariously Uses Son To Clean Snow Off Car1m07s

Dad Hilariously Uses Son To Clean Snow Off Car

If you’re looking for a little burst of warmth in the midst of all this cold weather we’ve been experiencing lately, then look no further than this heartwarming video of a dad and his son cleaning the snow off the car together—although technically it’s more like a dad cleaning the snow off his car *with* his son. As in, using his son as a makeshift broom to brush all the pesky whiteness from the hood of his car. While we do live in a country with strict child labor laws, we’re sure that an exception can be made in this case, especially when the result is a video that’s so completely adorable. As the woman who shot the video tells us, “We got a lot of snow in Monclova, Ohio. My husband and son went outside to play in the snow. I asked my husband if he could clean off our vehicles while he was outside. Next thing I know, my husband is yelling into the house asking if we have any duct tape. I meet him at the door with the tape only to find that he is planning to wrap it around my son's wrists, ankles, and waist so the snow couldn't get in. I then recorded this video of my husband using our son to push off all the snow. My son had such a blast!" That this little boy was having the greatest time of his whole life is more than evident from his laughs and squeals of pure delight as he “helps” his dad get the family car ready for renewed operations, once the slow has cleared. And we’d be willing to bet our whole next month’s salary that there was a big cup of hot chocolate —with tiny marshmallows floating in it—waiting for father and son when they got back indoors. We’ve all been spending a lot of time cursing the insanely cold temperatures that have been hitting much of the U.S. this winter—the coldest temps some places have seen in an entire generation—but it’s feel good moments like this that make us appreciate just how beautiful a snow white winter can be. So brew up your own cup of hot chocolate (and maybe add a dash of Bailey’s when the kids aren’t looking!) and click the Play button. We guarantee it will warm you all the way down to the tips of your toes!

Travelling friends find man sleeping on horse next to road1m25s

Travelling friends find man sleeping on horse next to road

The Kalahari region in the Northern Cape province of South Africa is a special place, characterized by its vast semi-arid wilderness and farmland areas. It also hosts the lowest density of people in the country. Life in the Kalahari runs at its own pace and many will say it is a place still stuck in its own time. It is not strange to see many people still using horses or donkey carts as a mode of transport. Today this is still the only safe and reliable mode of transport available to many people in the rural areas. My friend Rudi and I were driving a long stretch of dirt road from their farm in the Kalahari to town which was an hour’s drive away. It was late Saturday afternoon and we were on our way to a social function in town. In the distance we noticed something rather odd. There was a lone horse standing next to the road in the middle of nowhere. As we came closer we quickly realized what was going on. On the back of this horse was a man lying, passed out and not moving. We decided to check it out and stopped next to the horse. At first we called, whistled and hit the hooter of the vehicle a few times to see if we might get any reaction. The obviously very loyal and obedient horse briefly looked at us but no movement came from the man. My friend Rudi decided to get out and investigate. I warned him not to go too close to the back of the horse as it might kick him. Rudi walked up to the horse and shook the man a few times while asking if he was OK. Suddenly the guy woke up, looking much disorientated and confused. His response was that he was on his way home. At the end of the video Rudi said to the guy in Afrikaans, “OK, the traffic light is green, you can go now” and off he went in a gallop on the back of his very trusty horse. It sure looked like the guy had a little too much to drink and passed out on the back of his horse while on the way home. Maybe he was just tired after a long journey and decided to take a power nap next to the road. None the less, it was one of the strangest and funniest things we have seen in a long time.

Wife catches husband red-handed with 37s

Wife catches husband red-handed with "other female"

Kristy and Dave were on vacation on San Cristobal Island in the Galapagos. It's a beautiful part of Ecuador where the pace is relaxed and the surroundings are beautiful. On an evening walk along the beachfront, Kristy decided to go to a nearby souvenir store. She left her husband, Dave unsupervised for a few minutes as she did so. He was sitting on a park bench beside the beach with the understanding that she would not be gone long. But in five minutes, a lot can happen. Moments after she walked away, a large, female sea lion waddled across the sidewalk and decided to climb up on the bench not far from Dave. This is not unusual behavior for San Cristobal sea lions. They live in complete harmony with locals and the tourists, often sleeping on sidewalks, quiet roads, gutters, and on any bench or table that is located near the beach. They spend a lot of their day and most of their nights sleeping. They can be found in flower planters, under shrubs, on unattended boats or anywhere that a sea lion thinks makes a good spot for a nap.
