Car Smashes into Grocery Store Hitting Baby Carriage – Video

OMG!…This action packed video shows a car smashing into a Publix grocery store and mowing down five adults and a baby carriage in the process.

Most of the action takes place within the first six seconds of the vid. About 50-60 seconds into the video you will be able to see the car cruising through the store still taking out store displays along the way. At 1:45 into the video several shoppers and store employees lift up one side of the car to free an 83-year-old man who was pinned under the vehicle.

Although you cannot see the details because everything happens so quickly, this video depicts a violent scene of five luckless victims and a baby carriage being wiped out by the speeding auto, which was traveling about 50 miles per hour according to witnesses. Why would anyone be driving 50 mph in the parking lot of a Publix grocery store?

Do not watch this video if you are squeamish.

Ten people including a baby in the baby carriage were injured during the accident which occurred Saturday, April 14th, in the central Florida town of Palm Coast.

The driver, 76-year-old Thelma Wagenhoffer, was charged with careless driving after she drove her 2004 Toyota Camry through the entrance of the Publix grocery store plowing her vehicle into a crowd of people and store displays.

Investigators determined that the car’s brakes were working properly, which may rule out mechanical problems as a cause. However, the car is a Toyota Camry, which has a history of autos accelerating by themselves. This video may prove that Toyotas still have problems with sticking gas pedals. Amazingly, it is difficult to believe that no one was killed in this incident, especially the baby in the baby carriage.

Neighbors claim that Wagenhoffer is normally a good driver, and that she would not answer her door to speak to reporters.

“Yeah, its bad…it’s a bad deal…its really got her tore up,” said one neighbor who declined being identified. “She never said a word. I don’t think she knows what happened to tell you the truth. I think she just had a bad experience, bad accident, bad day.”

Marriage Proposal via Bruno Mars Lip Syncing/Dancing Charms World – Viral Video

Seven million YouTube viewers can’t be wrong, and most of them loved how Isaac Lamb, a Portland actor, proposed to his girlfriend, Amy Frankel, by getting about 60 of his friends and family to lip sync and dance to Bruno Mars’ song, Marry You. Lamb video taped the proposal and posted it on YouTube for the rest of the world to enjoy.

Lamb cleverly managed to place Amy in a position to watch and appreciate the proceedings from the rear door of a slow moving Honda, with video cameras recording both the event and Amy’s reaction to it all.

But enough talk, let’s watch:

Editor’s note: After this article was posted, the original vid was forced off of YouTube because of copyright issues, at least that is how YouTube characterizes it. The vid was replaced with one from a news agency, which supposedly has the copyright to the video–As if any of us really believe that a TV station organized and choreographed the dancers!

“I told my girlfriend to meet me at my parent’s house for dinner,” explained the 31-year-old Lamb.

“When she arrived I had stationed my brother to sit her in the back of an open Honda CRV and give her some headphones.

“He wanted to play her a song… what she got instead was the world’s first Live Lip-Dub Proposal.”

Lamb must be British because Americans would call it lip sync, not lip dub.

Amy was charmed and thrilled with the entire event, while Lamb gets credit for one of the cleverest marriage proposals on record.

This story reminds me of Jill and Kevin’s Wedding Entrance, another terrific wedding story that has over 75 million views on YouTube. Check it out.

747 with no Pilot Nearly Takes Off by Itself – Video

A Boeing 747 is caught on video virtually taking off by itself without any pilot or crew. The jumbo jet accomplished this seemingly impossible feat due to the strong 70 mph winds blasting away at the wings of the plane as it sits in a jet boneyard in Mojave, CA, awaiting shipment to the scrap heap.

The aircraft, which was stripped of its jets, has empty fuel tanks, and is without passengers or crew, is left so light that the Mojave winds are free to have their way with the 747. Only the nose of the aircraft leaves the ground, but it lifts a significant amount off the tarmac giving the appearance it is about to take off.

The next day the plane was found to have rotated about 45 degrees from its original position. The lack of engines left the craft significantly tail heavy, at least enough to allow the plane to totter backward and forward lifting the nose quite high into the air. Although the back wheels remained in place, the nose and fuselage of the plane move numerous times.

Base Jumping Crash Caught on Video

Our video today shows Jeb Corliss, one of the world’s best base jumpers, crashing into a ridge on January 16th on Table Mountain in South Africa as his jump goes horribly wrong.

The video is embedded so that it will begin at 1 minute and four seconds into the vid, which is the beginning of Corliss’ ill-fated jump. We recommend that you click on the full screen icon in the lower right corner of the vid to enable the best shot of the crash.

Because it is YouTube technology that allows us to pop into the video at a specific time slot, it may not work properly on all web browsers. If that happens, then simply paste the link into your browser’s URL address and watch it on YouTube.

And yes, Corliss surprisingly survived the mishap suffering only a broken leg, a broken ankle, some broken toes and bumps and bruises while spending the last five weeks in a South Africa hospital.

Corliss’ injuries are minor compared with what might have occurred. The fact that he survived at all is quite amazing considering that he hit the ridge at 120 miles per hour. Of course, Corliss fully intends to continue jumping once his injuries heal.

“The only reason I’m getting better is so that I can jump again,” Corliss said describing his motivation for healing his injuries.  “That’s what I do.  There’s absolutely nothing in this world that’s going to stop me from jumping.”

HBO Sports with Bryant Gumbel filmed the crash, and Corliss has posted his version of the accident at Jeb Corliss – Grounded. ABC News’ Nightline has also presented the best version of the accident I have seen on its show. I will post that link when it becomes available.

Elephant Clobbers Tourist – Video

Wow! This elephant obviously does not appreciate a young tourist feeding him and simply clobbers the young guy with its trunk.

Interacting with the elephant did appear safe initially, but look how quickly the pachyderm turned on the unfortunate tourist. Prudence dictates keeping a safe distance from any beast that outweighs you by a few thousand pounds.

This guy will never forget his encounter with an elephant. And you thought elephants had a long memory.

President Obama Sings Al Green’s ‘Let’s Stay Together’ – Video

President Obama spoke at a fundraiser at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, following a performance by singer Al Green. To the delight of the audience the big O actually sang a line of the song, Let’s Stay Together.

All politics aside Prez Obama is truly a cool dude. Of course, there is so much hate between the conservative right and the liberal left that the neocons have been poisoning the Internet with diatribes against Mr. O regarding this video. It really wouldn’t matter who the Prez was. As long as he is a Democrat the right wing will hate him and slander both his name and anything he does.

Why is there so much hatred in this country? If the hate doesn’t eventually abate, we are lost as a nation.

Are US Marines Caught Urinating on Dead Taliban? – or Not? – Video

A video that just recently hit YouTube and the Internet purportedly shows four US Marines urinating on three dead Taliban in Afghanistan. The question is whether or not the video is real or a hoax. Watch the vid and see for yourself:

As of the writing of this post, there are about half a dozen postings of this video on YouTube including one supposedly from TMZ.com. Once these vids turn viral, which is very likely, YouTube will probably remove them from its site because of the inflammatory nature of the video. That is usually how YouTube operates, although Russia Today and TMZ.com do have more clout than the ordinary YouTube video poster and that may prevent the vids from being removed by YouTube management.

In any event, the real question is whether or not the vid is a hoax or real? My guess is it’s a hoax. After watching the video on a 42 inch TV screen, I was not able to see a urine stream coming from any of the four Marines. That suggests a hoax.

In addition, the Marine on the right appears to be toting around at least a 12 inch penis. And we all know there are not too many of those around. That too suggests hoax. It is possible that the Marine’s manhood is genuine, which may indicate his motivation is to broadcast the size of his johnson rather than to defile any Taliban.

The US Marine Corp. has announced that it will investigate the incident because this is not the image the Corp. wants for itself.

Joe Kapp and Angelo Mosca Start Fist Fight at CFL Luncheon

Joe Kapp Lands a Right to Angelo Mosca’s Jaw

Joe Kapp, 73, a former NFL quarterback with the Minnesota Vikings, and Angelo Mosca, 74, a former CFL defensive lineman and a former professional wrestler under the names of King Kong Mosca and the Mighty Hercules, got into a fist fight at a recent CFL Grey Cup luncheon in Vancouver, Canada.

Kapp and Mosca hold a grudge against each other for a hit Mosca landed on one of Kapp’s teammates 48 years ago. Talk about holding a grudge!

Here is a video of the actual fight as it occurred:

The two septuagenarians have held grudges against each other since the 1963 Grey Cup, which is the CFL’s version of a Canadian Super Bowl.  In the 1963 game, Mosca laid out Kapp’s teammate, Willie Fleming, with a controversial hit, knocking Fleming out of the game. Now, nearly 50 years later, the two still do not get along.

You would think two seventy somethings would have gotten all of the fist fighting out of their systems by now, but not these two.

The Grey Cup luncheon, where the fight occurred, had a goal of raising money for retired CFL players, so it is possible that the altercation might not have been entirely spontaneous. After all the incident did reach news outlets all across North America.

Comedian Ron James, the luncheon’s host, insists that the fight was not staged; however, it would be interesting to learn how much money the event raised for its cause.

Photograph Shows Shark in wave among surfers

A San Diego photographer took a photo of what appears to be a shark inside a wave with surfers all around it. At all times the surfers were unaware of the shark’s presence, and no one was attacked.

Photographer Gary Elliot took the snapshot while taking pictures of the high surf off Encinitas, California, which is near San Diego. Elliot did not even realize what a rare photo he had until he examined the shots on his home computer.

Marine biologist Marcelo Szpilman writing about the photo says, “I cannot say exactly what it is, but it sure is not a white shark, because the shape of the caudal fin is different.”

Of course, it might easily be some type of shark other than a great white.

Nasty Dude Urinates on Drug Store Cough Drops – Caught on Video

A big, scary nasty dude is caught on CCTV video urinating on Walgreens drug store cough drops right out in the open. The public urination appears to have occurred around 10:30 PM local time in Sanford, Florida.

Be careful buying cough drops in Sanford, Florida, although the police have apprehended the alleged desparado and identified him as Larry Donell White Jr., who was arrested after Sanford police received a tip from someone who saw the story on the news.

White allegedly caused $301 in damage by choosing the drug shelves for relieving himself ruining about 100 packages of cough drops in the process. White was arrested on charges of criminal mischief and culpable negligence.

It seems that White refused to inform the police why he chose to urinate when and where he did. Maybe he just had to go?

Giant Phoenix Dust Storm Caught on Videos

It’s the monsoon season in the Arizona desert, and the following video displays a rarely experienced haboob, or giant dust storm, as it overtakes the city of Phoenix. The enormous storm appears to swallow the city and looks like the CGI special effects that Hollywood often dreams up for movies.

The storm rises a mile high, stretches 100 miles wide and is all too real as the residents of Phoenix will attest to. The vid is embedded with permission from the website of Mike Olbinski, a professional photographer and Phoenix resident fortunate enough to be on the scene just as the giant dust cloud begins engulfing the city.

The video is shot in time lapse photography:

We also have the haboob shot from another angle and from within the dust cloud itself:

Lightning Strikes Plane in Midair – Caught on Video

A new Emirates Airlines, double decker, Airbus A380 Jumbo jet en route to London’s Heathrow Airport is struck by lightning in midair, and it is all caught on video by a passenger on another plane.

Londoner Chris Dawson was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time and was smart enough to prepare his camera to obtain some rare footage. The A380 Airbus is capable of carrying over 500 passengers, however they were all safe because lightning strikes are taken under consideration during the design of airplanes.

Jets are designed with a metal outer skin that is designed to absorb lightning strikes, and several planes each year are struck yet they all survive.

Isn’t technology amazing! Even though these airplanes are giants in the sky, they are capable of withstanding direct strikes from bolts of lightning carrying thousands of volts of electricity.

Who Knew Riding a Bicycle Could be so Funny?

Even if you have been to over 100 airports, you have probably never seen anyone ride a bicycle inside one. Plus it is guaranteed that you have never seen anyone ride a bicycle there in such a funny fashion.

Check out how these creative folks take the boredom out of a long trip to the airport:

It seems that some clever Estonian folks thought of this while in the Prague airport. Unfortunately, if they did that in the United States they would be strip searched, arrested, and imprisoned for life for terroristic activities. It’s not the best of times in the US these days. Prague, on the other hand, is not so bad.

Funny Dogs and More Funny Dogs!

We ran into this older video on the web, but we just had to include it here because in our minds it is really funny–especially if you like animal videos. And we certainly do. Like we said, it is older, it is anything but hi-def, but it has some very funny scenes.

Give a Look:

Man Struck by Lightning Caught on Video

A man is struck by lightning and it is all caught on video. What part of the world this happened is unknown. The video is hosted on YouTube and the only words accompanying it are: “Vo cabeceia raio.”

Trying to translate that phrase on several translation sites got us no where, and that includes Google’s translator which translates from nearly 60 languages.

Google also provides a language detector, which stated it is Galician and means: “Ray nods vo.” The only other language that came close is Portuguese, and the translation is the same: “Ray nods vo.”

In Catalan it is translated to: “Vo pitch rayon.” In Galician it can also mean: “Lightning nods see you.”

However, since “raio” can mean “lightning” in Portuguese, I am going with that.

In any event this poor guy really got whopped but good, and it is amazing that he was even able to rise after suffering through such a thunderous bolt of lightning.

Prez Obama Makes Fun of Donald Trump – Video

President Barack Obama made fun of Donald Trump, the chief birther, and others, at the annual White House Correspondents Dinner. The president had prepared his “official birth video” mocking his early childhood in Africa, which the President jokingly explained to the FOX News table, “that was a joke.”

The video is quite long, but there are quite a few very good jokes done at the expense of the Donald and other politicians:
