Man wearing a teeny bathing suit makes a terrible mistake while trying to take a selfie

Usually when there’s a barrier stopping you from getting close to a cliff, it’s there for a really good reason.


But this man was determined. He needed that cliff selfie, and he was going to get it.

Miraculously, this dude managed to keep his phone in his hand and his teeny bathing suit on his butt when a massive wave knocked him down.

Goalkeeper celebrates too early and regrets it in 2 seconds

Never celebrate too early.

Case in point, a soccer match between two Thai teams — Bangkok Sports Club and Satri Angthong — who entered a penalty kick shootout.

The penalty ball hits the crossbar and rockets upwards toward the sky, and the defending goalkeeper runs off in celebration.

But as the ball comes back down to earth, it bounces back into the goal as the goalie scuttles back in vain, unable to rescue it.

Just watch—it couldn’t have been a better choreographed disaster.

Dancing Squid phenomenon: Soy Sauce bringing dead creatures back to life

 

Soy sauce may be able to revive a dull dish, but it hardly has the ability bring dead things back to life. Yet, that’s exactly what the condiment appears to do in a GIF recently posted on Reddit.

Borrowed from a 2010 Youtube video, the GIF shows a cuttlefish seemingly coming back to life when soy sauce is poured atop it. The cephalopod’s body lifts up and writhes in the bowl, prompting viewers to ask: Is it really dead?

Indeed, the cuttlefish in the video — part of a seafood dish named odori-don — is no longer living. The cuisine, sometimes prepared with squid and known as the “dancing squid rice bowl,” rose to prominence after Japanese sushi restaurant Ikkatei Tabiji began preparing the plate in this particular fashion, according to CBS News.

So how does the squid “come back to life?”

The reaction is an automatic response to the sodium chloride, or salt, in the soy sauce. The recently deceased squid may lack a brain, but its muscle cells, which receive electrical commands, are still intact, NPR reports.

“Most of the tissue in an organism that’s recently dead, recently killed, is actually still alive” Charles Grisham, a chemistry professor at the University of Virginia, explained to Discovery News. “In this case, even though the brain function is missing, the tissues will still respond to stimuli.”

The squid’s muscles still retain Adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the main source of energy for muscle contractions. Therefore, when the sodium in soy sauce is absorbed into the creature’s body, it triggers muscle spasms that appear to make the cephalopod dance. Of course, a specimen must be fairly fresh for soy sauce to elicit this reaction, according to the report.

“Ghost car” comes from nowhere and causes a major crash in a footage

Dashcam footage of a “ghost car” that appears out of thin air before causing an accident at a busy intersection in Singapore has social media users spooked.

In the puzzling footage, a silver car mysteriously pops into the frame and collides with a white BMW before sliding out of view.

“This is really weird. Played a few times and still cannot figure out where the car is from,” Jacky Tong Liang wrote on the Roads.sg Facebook page, where the video was posted Monday.

No one was harmed in the crash, according to the posting.

Video experts think the optical illusion might be the result of uncanny timing and that the turning white car blocks the other car from the camera’s view.

The car may appear to come from nowhere, but if you look closely at the clip you can see the “ghost car” behind the van at :09. Later in the clip, at the 0:15 mark, the roof of the silver car is barely visible behind the car that crashes into it.

The distortion from the reflection of the dashcam also makes the collision harder to see.
