The beauty and scary power of Mother Nature in one GIF

Aw look, it's a rainbow. Maybe that means the rain is going to stop. Maybe that means the dark clouds are going away. Maybe it means we should go outdoors soon... NOPE. Maybe not.

Watch these guys remove the antenna atop the John Hancock Center

These guys are working on the top cap west antenna of the John Hancock Center—a 1,127-foot-high (344 meters) building located in Chicago.

Ivan Kuznetsov doesn't care that the world's highest construction site—atop the 2,073-foot (632-meter) Shanghai Tower, the second tallest building on Earth—is full of ice and it's slippery as hell.

This goliath grouper sure isn't happy about sharing the waters with us humans. It grumpily swims over to the man spearfishing, intimidates him with a little head butt and then steals the fish he caught. Even worse, he took the guy's gun for a little joy ride. It's like stealing someone's date right in front of them. » 7/29/14 11:49pm 7/29/14 11:49pm
