It's rare to see a helicopter crash go so well. It's also refreshing and sort of nice to see something like this go down with a total lack of screaming or towering infernos. Yeah, it would be real scary to just drop out of the sky, but also this crash landing went more smoothly than some regular commercial airline flights we've been on.

Here it comes at high speed, ready to break the sound barrier and slam into this glass wall with the completely relenting force of one Floridian aquatic mammal.

This guy had just finished installing a new battery on the ol' golf cart before realizing the accelerator was open. Usually the universe gives us a break between projects, but not so this time.

Google Crash Causes Temporary Panic On Twitter

This morning Google was temporarily down all over the world causing widespread panic and concern as people tried to check work emails and join Monday morning meetings on Google Meet. The masses unsurprisingly took to Twitter, many joking and memeing about the absurdity of trying to google why Google was down, while others embraced the crash as a welcomed break from work or school duties. Although the crash only lasted under an hour, the instant reaction on social media is indicative of how much the world depends on communication tools like Gmail, especially in a time where millions are still working from home. Maybe a sign that we should diversify a bit?

We've collected some of the most amusing tweets from the meltdown on Twitter.

Leah Pruett was able to walk away from a crazy looking crash when the front end of her car collapsed and sent her into the air. The dragster is a stump, but the capsule stayed intact and she was able to give an interview moments later.

A lot can happen in 9 seconds. In what looks like an excavator and Jeep swerving to avoid each other, they manage to swerve back into each other, preventing a direct hit to that guy with a bike.

An investigation is underway after two ships collided on the Welland Canal in Ontario in what looks like the largest game of chicken ever played by two boats. It looks like someone might lose their job over this one.

Millionaire Benjamin Chen crashed his 750,000 dollar Gemballa Mirage GT into a parked van while speeding through the empty-ish streets of Manhattan. With shocked onlookers recording the whole thing, he started her back up and tried to get away. Hopefully whoever owns that van doesn't have to pay a nickel.

Rescued Koalas Named After Fallen Firefighters During Australia's Wildfire

Both heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. 

Three Snowy Mountain Koalas, who were rescued from the Australia wildfire crisis, have been named after American firefighters who were tragically killed in the region. 

Two Thumbs Wildlife Trust Koala Sanctuary have named the koalas, and the trio are now in the temporary care of Australian National University (ANU).

Dr Karen Ford, an ANU researcher and who is running the makeshift hospital at ANU, said in a university statement, "We have 11 koalas at ANU that have come in from the various fire grounds in the region.They just keep arriving. There is nowhere else that has the facilities to hold these animals or this many at the moment."

Ford also mentioned that a couple of the koalas are being treated for burns, while the others are "quite skinny" from malnutrition, due to their habitats being completely burnt. 

Koalas are known to breed so slowly that it could take 100 years for the population to rebuild — so saving just one is crucial. That is why the koalas have been a central focus of relief efforts as the blaze spreads across the region.

If we did something this stupid on camera, we'd probably try to act casual and save face too. The real question is whether or not most of us would do something this stupid. Or maybe he's just in shock and glad that he's alive.

The only thing worse than getting in a car crash, is getting in a car crash that goes viral on the internet. Lucky for this guy, he can probably submit the footage to get royalties if the company ever really makes an ad like this. But most importantly, the driver is OK, and Coca Cola got a bunch of free advertising.
