We feel like we’re reasonably tough. OK, kinda tough. And while we could survive many things (ok, a few things), a leopard attack ain’t one of them. We found a story of a guy who did just that. He fended the giant cat off with his bike. By the way, even though he was mauled by an apex predator…he STILL MADE IT IN TO WORK THAT DAY. All that is man! We decided to ask what animal attacks you survived. Who knew Moose and Octopus were that dangerous?
I’m a sucker for open displays of love. This one by President Bush takes the cake. Here he is reading an old love letter to Barbara. If you don’t get choked up, you have no soul.
Watch this kid’s heart break when Justin Bieber didn’t win Best New Artist.
Coca Cola is denying this is the “real thing” but it was discovered in the personal notes of Coca-Cola founder John Pemberton and a lot of people are saying it’s legit. Some of the researchers who have been playing around with it say they could recreate it and testers couldn’t tell the difference, others say it was close but it was still “a little off”. Still pretty cool if it’s legit. Although if it is I’ll probably be getting some very serious calls/emails VERY soon. Copy it down while you can.
