Mother Nature Showing Off With An Incredible Lightning Strike

Sgt. Mark Rodriguez of the Gautier Police Department in Mississippi, was driving along Interstate 10 like any other morning when he was nearly blinded by a bolt of lightning striking the concrete barrier in front of him. According to WLOX News, Sgt. Rodriguez went back to where the lightning struck and found a piece of the barrier was broken off by the strike. You can even see the few seconds after the strike that there was still sparks coming off the barrier! Watch this video and see just how close he was to it!

Did You Know That You Might Be Drinking Coffee At The Wrong Time?

Mitchell Moffit and Gregory Brown from AsapSCIENCE explains science to us regular folks in an easy to understand way. In their latest post we learn all about our habit of caffeine consumption. They explain to us about our cortisol hormone and how it reduces the effectiveness of caffeine. Most people usually grab a cup of joe while on their morning commute to work. What they don’t know is that during that time frame, our cortisol production could be at its highest, thus the coffee you’re drinking won’t keep you awake longer than you want it to. But don’t be discouraged, we also learn the best times to be drinking caffeine, which is in between the peak cortisol productions. Keep these helpful tips in mind next time you start to feel a drop in alertness.

Also, the hand drawn animation is incredible! I wonder how long it takes them to do one segment.

Hungry Cat Will Fight You For Your Food!

When a cat has his eyes on something, it’s his. If he wants it, he’ll try to get it. Like the food…on your fork…going into your mouth. If your cat doesn’t do that, then you’re pretty lucky. The owner of Marmalade seems to have the same issue every time he sits down to eat. There’s a little pesky cat pawing at him. Seems like the owner is use to this though, maybe, a bit? Haha. There are so many good scenes in this video, one of my favorites is when the ninja cat got his paw on the popcorn, they both freeze for a second and then carried on. I’m sure this cat has increased his owner’s reaction time, Look at how he moves his fork out of the way just in the nick of time!

Maybe Marmalade is just telling his owner, “I don’t think that’s healthy for you…I should eat it instead.”

Check out Marmalade and his brother Cole on their YouTube page for more adorable videos.

Lab Meets His Baby Sister For The First Time!

A parent’s worst nightmare is for something to happen to their baby. This couple has made a video on how to introduce your new baby to your fur-baby. They filmed the first time their baby girl was brought home and introduced to their energetic black Labrador Retriever. It’s great to see how daddy handled the situation with a curious and excited dog. When the pup got too close to the baby he moved away and slowly came back once the dog has calmed down. I’m pretty sure these two will make some pretty good memories together!

Please note that this is not the end. There can still be a real danger with dogs not fully understanding how to carefully play with a baby. As parents, you will always have to keep your eyes on both kind of babies. The key is responsible parenting!
