Someone Spotted Him Taking His Wife Out To Lunch, But Not In The Way You Think.

It’s no wonder that some habits die hard after the passing of a loved one. That’s why this man’s continuing tradition of eating every meal with his beloved is the most heartbreaking thing in the world…and the most beautiful.

(via Elite Daily)

They say true love never dies, and that’s never been more apparent than at this local In-and-Out Burger. If their love can last forever, maybe there’s hope for the rest of us.

What Happens To This Tourist In Mexico Will Make You Never Want To Go On Vacation Again.

Ever wonder what else might be swimming in the open waters with you? Probably not, when you’re swimming in crystal clear waters. If you can see the bottom, you know there’s nothing there. 

…but what if you’re wrong? What happened to this one tourist on vacation in Mexico will make you rethink swimming in any water, clear or not. A terrified family on a boat recorded the encounter:

If you like swimming in the open waters, you might want to not see this. Because you’ll certainly think twice before venturing into “wild” waters again.

(H/T: 9 News)

Thank goodness this alligator typically feeds off food left by tourists and locals. His slow approach was due to the fact he wasn’t hungry (and in fact had just eaten) and therefore was “full” when he came across this swimmer. Otherwise, those helpful tourists throwing a barrel would have had ZERO effect. 

Whew! Share this ridiculous video with your friends using the buttons below. They’ll be cringing in suspense.

These Vintage Life Hacks Are From The 1900s. The Weird Part Is, They Actually Work.

We all generally see life hacks as a new trend to make life better and cigarettes as an undeniable way to, eventually, make life suck. (Sorry, smokers.)

However, way back in 1900-1910, the two clashing ideas were combined to create these helpful cards which came along with the purchase of Gallaher’s brand cigarettes. But unlike the fact that cigarettes are in no way beneficial, these old-timey tips actually hold up. Channel your inner boy scout and see for yourself!

1.) How To Extract A Splinter

“Fill a wide mouthed bottle with hot water nearly to the brim, and press affected part of hand tightly against mouth of bottle. The suction will pull down the flesh, and steam will soon draw out the splinter.”

2.) How To Fell A Tree

“Have decided which side you wish the tree to fall, cut alternatively a downward and inward cut as shown. When about half through, proceed to cut the other side a few inches higher, and finally pull tree down by means of ropes.”

3.) Keeping Plants Watered While Away

“Fill a large pail with water, and stand it a little above the level of the plants and group round or near as many plants as practical. Loosely plait two or three strands of wool together, immerse completely in water, and place one end in the pail, weighted, and touching the bottom. Rest the other end on the soil: a separate plait of wool is advisable for each pot.”

4.) How To Light A Match In The Wind

“The familiar difficulty of lighting a match in a wind can be to a great extent overcome if thin shavings are first cut on the match towards its striking end, as shown in the picture. On lighting the match the curled strips catch fire at once; the flame is stronger and has a better chance.”

5.) How To Make A Chair To Cross A Stream

“Fasten a strong rope to a tree and let a boy swim across the stream and fasten the other end to a tree on an opposite bank. Make the chair, fasten it to a running look or a block pulley, and by means of a light rope fastened to the middle of (the) chair and held by a scout at each end, those unable to swim are safely passed over.”

6.) How To Make A Fire Extinguisher

“Dissolve one pound of salt and half a pound of sal-ammoniac in two quarts of water and bottle the liquor in thin glass bottles holding about a quart each. Should a fire break out, dash one or more of the bottles into the flames, and any serious outbreak will probably be averted.”

7.) How To Make A Water Filter

“A most handy and efficacious filter can be made out of an ordinary perfectly clean zinc water pail, through the bottom of which a hole has been drilled and a small pipe fitted. The water percolates through the layers of fine and coarse sand, and clean picked gravel and stones, with which the pail is filled, filtering through to the bottom in a clear state.”

8.) How To Preserve Eggs

“Eggs for preserving must be newly laid, and by simply putting these into a box or tin of dry salt-burying the eggs right in the salt and keeping it in a cool dry place — it is possible to preserve them for a very long period. No air whatever should be allowed to get to the shell.”

9.) How To Stop A Mad Dog

“A scout’s staff, a walking-stick, or even a handkerchief or hat may be held before you as shown. The dog invariably endeavours to paw down your defense before biting, thus giving you the opportunity of disabling him by a kick.”

Hopefully you’re never in a position to need that last one, but it is good to be prepared.

This Cute Coati Just Wanted A Quick Snuggle…And His Handlers Couldn’t Refuse.

This little fella is a creature called a South American Coati. His name is Elvis, and the exotic little fur ball loves nothing more than some naptime scratches. Watch as he demands all the back scratches and belly rubs his owner can give, all while purring at the attention.

Watching this is almost as therapeutic as actually petting an animal.

(Source: Nicolle von Eberkopf)

I don’t speak Coati, but I feel like the little guy is saying; “go a little up the spine and to the right…aaahhhh yes! That’s the spot right there, no don’t move, right there I said.”

Exhausted Stray Dog Gets Rescued in the Most Unusual Way

PJ here had been living on the streets of Los Angeles for some time and people had tried to catch the little guy without much success. But when Eldad Hagar from Hope For Paws went out one day trying to find little PJ, he came upon him fast asleep in a parking lot and decided it was best to act quick. Eldad managed to catch PJ by throwing a net over the sleeping pooch. Boom: Science.

That might not be the best way to wake up, but PJ will be fine with a lifetime of love ahead of him to wipe out the memories of the harsh life on the street…and the memory of waking up in that scary way.

Is This Russia Or Winterfell? This Family Has Their Own Brood Of Pet Wolves.

Russia suddenly looks a lot more like the fictional kingdom of Winterfell from HBO’s Game of Thrones. And I’m not talking about the winter-y weather, either. This family has tamed their own brood of wolves who they share their home with just north of Minsk. (I’m sure they have a bit more luck than the Starks, though.) 

When you how close 10-year-old Alisa Selekh is to her pet wolf, you’ll be amazed. For the past five years, her father Oleg worked on domesticating the typically violent canines and today they are so docile you’d hardly recognize their wild roots. 

This doesn’t look like a big bad wolf to me!

She even takes a lift on her furry pal from time to time.

Her father Oleg, left, tamed the wolves after bringing them home in 2009.

Best friends!

Little red riding hood would have nothing to fear in this house.

(via Daily Mail.)

This obviously takes an expert gamekeeper to accomplish such a daunting task. I wouldn’t recommend inviting any wolves you see home for dinner without plenty of experience first!

Zoo Officials Were Confused When They Saw What This Elk Was Doing. Then They Were In Awe.

Officials at The Pocatello Zoo in Idaho were confused when they saw this elk spending an unusually long time by the water pail and fussing around with something in its shallow depths. Dr. Joy Fox noticed the big fella, who goes by the name Shooter, and wondered what was up.

Shooter kept dipping his head into the water…

…taking way longer than he usually did to grab a gulp of water.

Then even odder: he began pawing at it with his hooves.

He kept his unusual prodding for about 15 minutes.

Then he used his antlers to help and pulled something small and fuzzy out of the water.

Closer inspection showed it was a marmot, another resident of the zoo.

They weren’t sure exactly what Shooter was going to do at this point…

But he simply laid the little guy down to safely recuperate!

Shooter the Elk is an actual hero! And that is one happy little critter…who will probably steer clear of water for awhile. Check out this bonus video of Dr. Fox discussing the heroic elk:

I Don’t Even Know How To React To These Dogs Swinging On Swings Like Humans.

People often consider their pets to be their children, but this might take it a bit too far.

I’m not sure whether to appreciate the cuteness of these dogs swinging on swings like human children…or get creeped out by it. Do they all seem like they’re having a terrible time, or is it just me?

What do you think?

H/T: Tastefully Offensive

Alright, I’ll choose to be suspiciously impressed by their cuteness for now. I just can’t shake the feeling that these dogs are just biding their time for something more devious.

This Is The Funniest Dad Joke You’ll Ever See. Trust Me.

I’m pretty sure that every dad in the history of time has played the ole “got your nose!” gag on their impressionable young child. It’s the first in a long line of dad-brand humor we all come to know and, usually begrudgingly, love. Most kids take in stride, but when this Missoula, Montana, dad broke out the trick for his son, the kid didn’t handle it so well. And it’s hilarious.

I don’t know who’s crying more: this kid or me from laughing so much. I’m so glad the mom had her camera ready!

(via Laughing Squid.)

I know we probably shouldn’t laugh at crying kids, but this is just too funny to pass up. He’ll understand when he’s older.

In case you were wondering…

No. You do NOT look cool.

Stop all of the selfie madness.

Oh, god.
