You've got to be able to really keep your cool under pressure when you're flying a huge hunk of aluminum thousands of feet above the ground. This student pilot was served the ultimate test when his engine suddenly failed and he was forced to asses the options and choose a landing spot within seconds. Luckily, the young pilot passed with flying colors.
Not every animal is born into the best of circumstances. Nature can be difficult like that. In the wild, unfortunately, baby animals can lose their mothers and be left alone. Many of them don't survive, but some of them... find themselves in the hands of people who will do anything to save them.
Such is the story of Tohar the cow. She had lost her momma when she was only 8 days old, but thankfully, she found her way to Shanti farm where other disabled animals get rescued and find forever homes. But, that's not where her story Tohar's story ends. This wonderful girl has turned out to have endless love for other animals, and has, over time, become a sort of surrogate momma to them, taking them under her wing and giving them all the love that she can.
One of the greatest things about folklore is the endless creativity it displays. They can be a huge, water dwelling dinosaur, à la the Loch Ness Monster, or a glowing eyed winged humanoid like the Mothman. Alternatively, they could just be a big old hairy guy that looks like an overgrown gorilla and is easy to dress up as to scare people, like Bigfoot.
A heavyweight of North American mythology, Bigfoot or the Sasquatch is so famous that it's never far from the mind of anyone visiting the forests of the continent. Reported sightings are a cultural mainstay, and it was about time we received another one — which has come in the form of a video from the Rocky Mountain Sasquatch Organization. They present the 4.7 second long footage, which was taken in Michigan, as part of a longer video explaining its context. It shows a large, brown figure crossing a river holding what appears to be a baby or small animal.
While the narrator of the video remained open minded about whatever had been seen in the water, most viewers remained far from convinced of the purported sighting. Many claimed it was easy to see that the figure was wearing some sort of costume, or would look very different actually up close. Nonetheless, the footage has grabbed no small amount of attention. It proves that whatever we think about popular folklore, many of us are still intrigued about the idea of bumping into something creepy in the woods.
Some of the teeniest tiniest animals out there will surprise you by just how fierce they can be. For example, did you know that the smallest wild cat in America is the cat with the higher kill success rate? Yeah, tiny doesn't mean not lethal.
We bet you didn't think that chipmunks belonged to this group of animals, but oh, these itty bitty chipmunks are about to prove you wrong. They have taken it upon themselves to have a battle with un unspeakably terrifying enemy - a strawberry pot. Yeah, we're not kidding. They laid siege to those strawberries and battled them to the very end. Thankfully, the chipmunks won, but the strawberries definitely put up a fight. It was almost as intense of a fight as the one between the ferocious baby jaguar against its momma's ear.
Moments when wildlife encounter civilization are always awwdorable yet mildly scary at the same time. We, as animal lovers, want nothing more than to go out there and pet these beautiful creatures. But, we know we should be respectful and not interfere, not matter how cute they might be. Amazingly, if you do that for long enough, you might even make friends with a wild animal.
Patrick Conley on YouTube knows what that feels like. They have had a beautiful bear visiting them for years - you can see the whole journey on that channel. And one day, she decided to being her itty bitty awwdorable bear cubs to visit her lifelong human friends. You can feel the excitement, not just from the humans but from the cubs as well. And we're as excited as they are.
Maybe it's time to start taking YouTubers with niche specialty skills a little more seriously. It might be frustrating for the seasoned professional or college professor whenever clients and students turn to YouTube for that quick knowledge, but hey, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em, am I right? Maybe this locksmith should have expanded his repertoire of lock-related skills by dabbling in a bit of YouTube rather than scorning lockpickers who generously share their knowledge on the platform. Watch this satisfying video of the legendary LockPicking Lawyer totally owning a nonbeliever.
You've surely seen the massive influx in the 'Nothing Stronger Than Family' memes featuring Vin Diesel from the Fast and Furious franchise all over your social media platform of choice. Well, we've got the scoop on just how and why these memes are stronger than ever.
Nothing Stronger Than Family refers to a catchphrase that is associated with the character Dominic Torretto from Fast and Furious who prioritized his family over anything.
This is just the kind of thing that the internet exists for. This guy didn't waste any time in proving one of the many aggressive YouTube commenters wrong. There are always going to be people lurking in the comments section just waiting to stir the pot by saying something unnecessarily provocative. There aren't always going to be people like the one we have here that go out of their way to prove the commenter wrong.
See Fast & Furious's Dom, Letty, Roman, Tej, Mia, Han, Sean, John Cena, Helen Mirren as you've never seen them before - wearing cheap wigs! The F&F movies (and F9 in particular) have become too reliant on CGI so we decided to scale things back a bit and do everything practically and for practically no money.
Everyone, get ready for an explosion of cuteness. And we truly mean explosion because not only is this smol wolf pup absolutely pawdorable but this tiny wolf pup's howls are some of the loudest and silliest that you will ever hear. Make sure your dogs are not in the room before you listen to this guys, or they will lose their minds lol.
Wolves are such misunderstood creatures, always being thought of as the bad guys. We can try convincing people that's not true by explaining to them that wolves are just big ol' goofballs or by telling them that wolves are some of the most affectionate creatures out there. But honestly, all that you will ever need to change people's minds about wolves is this video of this intensely loud and infinitely adorable pupper.
Let's be honest, there is nothing cuter in the whole world than baby animals. It doesn't matter which animal it is - from itty bitty tiny kittens to awwdorable and underappreciated hyaena cubs - so long as the animal is in its teeny weeny baby form, we love it. They are so new to this world, looking around and discovering every little bit of it.
Their innocence about the world is part of what makes them so cute. That as well as their occasional mild confusions. Like this adorable noisy baby seal who, for some unclear reason, confused a photographer filming it for its momma. Well, we suppose that could happen to anyone, and we get to watch the footage of this squeaky baby.
Okay, so, to be completely real with you all, one of our favorite things ever is animals being total jerks. Like, yeah, we don't love seeing animals bullying other animals or ourselves but... it's also super duper hilarious.
So far, we had jerk parrot messing with the family dog, the jerk peacock always running around yelling and petrifying everyone, and of course, the jerks who never stop being jerks - cats, and many, many more. The latest jerks in our growing collection are yet again birds - this time they're cockatoos biting the tips of the tails of kangaroos to stealing their food.
The kangaroos are too to do anything to these wild cockatoos so they just take the bullying and hop away, and that's already funny, but the humans being as done with the cockatoos as they are? Yeah, that's definitely our favorite part.
These days, YouTube might seem like it's mostly influencers and unboxing videos, but once upon a time it was a special place where anyone and everyone could update total strangers about the mundane details of their lives. Early 'vloggers' were pretty ahead of their time even though most of them usually boasted one or two subscribers, if they were lucky. By looking closely at the history of a YouTuber's channel, the life trajectory that reveals itself through thumbnails is often surprisingly hilarious. These sorts of 'character arcs' aren't limited to YouTubers—comedic moments of character development and plot twist gems can be found in Twitter threads, Facebook posts, Reddit replies and anywhere else people are able to post about their lives. We've collected some classic examples of hilarious character arcs summed up in pics and screenshots.
When one brings a new baby to a home full of animals, there is always some level of worry. We want our animals to love our babies; we want to see out cats cuddling our babies and our dogs cuddling our babies too. We want them to grow up to be best friends, but we can't help but be worried. Thankfully, most times, it seems that these precious first meetings lead to just that.
The newest ICanHasCheezburger original animation by @sleepyskele portrays just that moment - the first meetings in the best possible version of them. It's an animation that will make you smile and want to being home a baby/an animal for your baby lol.

There are times in the animal world where animals make such unique families and friendships with each other, and this is one of the newest, most wholesome ones. This amazing hen has taken a whole lotta newborn kittens under its wings (literally) and has been taking care of them alongside their cat momma.
Even cat moms need a break sometimes, and trusting their babies with another animal is a challenge. But, the absolutely unique interspecies friendship created between these two animals is strong enough to withstand their differences and give us one of the most heartwarming family videos we've seen in a while.
