While Driving, They Spotted Something Insane Hanging From The Power Lines

While driving through the Vale of Tempe in Greece, a group of men spotted something truly unexpected dangling from the power lines. No, it wasn’t a pair shoes, or even a balloon — it was a live goat.

Apparently the poor guy was reaching for some olives when his horns got tangled in the power cables (which were thankfully not live). One Good Samaritan called for help and workers from the town water and sewage company worked together to get the unlucky goat out of this “gruff” situation.

As you can see, by the end of the video, the goat is understandably a little shaken up, but then he happily prances away. I’m sure he built up quite a hunger while he was hanging out. He may have even scoped out some choice olives from that vantage point!

Police Officers Escort A Mama Duck And Her Babies Safely Through A Busy City

Downtown traffic in Saskatoon, Canada, stood still for a few adorable minutes when a couple of kindhearted police officers escorted a mama duck and her babies toward the South Saskatchewan River.

Duck families are common sights at the start of spring, since ducklings hatch this time of year. Within 24 hours of hatching, mother ducks lead their little ones to water, which normally goes off without a hitch.

Unfortunately for these little fluff balls, their mother couldn’t avoid laying her eggs in a busy area. That’s where these officers came in!

We all need a helping hand sometimes, and these nice officers really went out of their way to extend theirs to an adorable little family. Good job, guys!

You Might Feel Bad For These Strange-Looking Chimps, But Watch The Chaos They Cause

Alopecia is a disease that affects humans and animals, and it causes the immune system to attack hair follicles. In severe cases, alopecia sufferers can lose all of their hair. Take these chimps, for example.

It’s easy to feel bad for them, but let’s just say that they’re not defenseless. Watch what this patron at the Twycross Zoo in Atherstone, England, caught on film.

(via Mirror)

Zookeepers at the facility assured visitors that these acts of aggression were part of a process called “displaying.” These intense rituals are more about securing higher positions in the social hierarchy than they are about harming other chimpanzees.

That being said, let this be a lesson to everyone reading — never mess with a chimp. They’re huge, strong, and sometimes menacing. No matter what they suffer from, weakness is not in their nature.

There’s A Way To Instantly Turn Water Into Ice Whoa!

Transforming water into ice instantly sounds like something you’d only see in a superhero comic. It’s so absurd and unrealistic that it couldn’t possibly be a thing that we can do in real life, right?

Except…we can.

Using purified water, you can transform regular H2O into ice with just a flick of your fingers. Don’t believe us? You really need to see it to believe it.

This process is only possible with purified water. Non-filtered water is typically full of impurities which cause the crystallization process. Because purified water doesn’t have those particles, there’s nothing for the molecules to latch onto.


Purified water can be supercooled to -40°C before it freezes without help. Once it hits the open air or another piece of ice, it will start to freeze.

Get ready to feel like a superhero with this super-cooled water. Start freezing everything in sight! Well, maybe not…that could end badly.

This Highway Rescue Of Two Dogs Will Have You On The Edge Of Your Seat!

Would you have stopped?

When drivers on California’s 210 Freeway spotted a German shepherd and a boxer sprinting in the road, they didn’t even hesitate. They stopped and jumped into action.

It took several attempts to grab the dogs off the busy highway, and this video captured some of the action.

This is unlike any rescue I’ve ever seen…

(via The Dodo)

Both dogs were saved and brought to a local animal shelter. What’s even more incredible is that the people who helped were just random passersby. One rescuer says of her decision to help, “I just had to stop and save them.”

Elderly Man Stands Out By The Road Every Day Selling Wood For A Heartbreaking Reason

After a long battle with illness, medical bills can be absolutely overwhelming.

When Jessica Pittman drove by an older couple selling wood by the side of the road one day, she stopped to talk to them what they were doing and learned that Helen and Kenneth Smith were just trying to pay for Helen’s medical bills. Her battle with lung cancer had been expensive and they were not rich people.

A year later, Pittman drove by the same spot and saw the same sight, except this time it was just Kenneth. Helen had passed away.

Still saddled with the costs of her treatment, Kenneth was trying to pay off the hospital charges $5 at a time with bags of kindling.

Pittman was so touched that she took to Facebook to tell everyone to buy kindling from the grieving man.

She wrote, “My heart breaks every time I pass him. He waves at every single car that passes…Precious man. I can’t buy it all! Anyway, we can all spare $5 to help this sweet man.”

When They Dropped Their Son Off At Daycare, It Was The Last Time They Saw Him Alive

Parents have one goal when it comes to sending their kids to daycare: to feel like the people they’ve trusted to care for their little ones are kind, competent, and caring.

But sometimes, proper daycare research can only do so much. If citations against facilities are kept out of public records, parents have no way of knowing the truth. This is something that one heartbroken family in Oklahoma learned the hard way.

When Derek and Ali Dodd — the wonderful parents of two young boys — dropped their youngest son off at daycare in April of this year, they had no idea that he would never come home.

One of the employees at the facility carelessly let little Shepard sleep in his carseat instead of putting him in a crib. She came to check on him two hours later, and when she touched his skin, he was ice cold. Although she called 911 immediately, the damage was already done. Sadly, the infant died from something called “positional asphyxiation.”

The baby suffocated in his sleep because he was left in his car seat to sleep.

At an early age, babies don’t have the strength to lift and support their own heads. If improperly fastened in a carseat, infants can become slumped over, which makes them unable to breathe. This act of laziness and disregard for Shepard’s safety on the part of the daycare employee is ultimately what took his life.

The most terrifying thing about the situation is that Shepard’s death doesn’t appear in public records.

Parents looking to keep their kids at this daycare center would then have no idea what happened. Fortunately, the facility has since shut down.

To help cope with their grief, Derek and Ali now work to raise awareness for positional asphyxiation so that parents and caretakers can avoid making this devastating mistake.

To learn more about their heartbreaking story, watch the video below:

No parent should ever have to endure the loss of their child, especially at the hands of someone else’s carelessness.

When His Bride Walked Down The Aisle, He Did Something That Had Me Drowning In Tears

Weddings have long been touted as the bride’s special day. In many ways, this is true — she’s doted on by her bridesmaids and all eyes are on her as she walks down the aisle….

But when Gabriel Deku saw his bride coming down the aisle at London’s St Martin-in-the-Fields, he simply couldn’t look at her longer than a few seconds.

Even when she stood right next to him, the man was so overcome with emotion that his best man had to tell him that this was really happening — he was marrying this incredible woman.

This is probably one of the sweetest things you’ll ever see.

Guys, I’m not crying…YOU’RE crying.

This Dog Figured Out That If He Plays Dead, He Can Seriously Freak Out His Brother

None of my dogs have ever learned how to play dead…but I’m sure if they did, they would use it to their advantage all the time.

“Oh my god, Fido looks ill. Should we give him a treat?” Yeah, that seems plausible.

Jack, however, has learned that if he plays possum around his brother, he can get a hilarious reaction.

The cute pooch has mastered the art of playing dead and loves to pull the prank on his buddy Archie. Remaining still for almost 30 minutes, Jack was able to fool the worried pup into believing that his best friend was actually dead. Jack is so good at this “game”, in fact, that his owner Sam even had to double check to make sure he was still breathing.

“Dude…DUDE? WAKE UP!”

Jack might just have himself an acting career in the future. He’s certainly on par with this pup..

This Is Probably The Most Patient Cat You’ll Ever See

Compared to dogs, cats get kind of a bad rap. Sure, some of them seem entitled, mean for no reason, and just all around uninterested when we’re craving their love…but others have incredibly admirable characteristics, too.

Take this cat, for instance. While some felines have been known to lash out for god knows what, this cat just lies there while an entire litter of puppies crawls all over her. If this doesn’t show that parents will put up with just about anything, I don’t know what will.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); });

She’s so chill!

This is probably exactly what she’s thinking.
