When we first have kids, it’s always a joy to see how excited they get when we come home. There’s just something adorable about listening to toddlers freak out about mommy and daddy returning after a long day. But despite the tearful goodbyes, we also kind of enjoy leaving. It gives our kiddos the chance to show us how much they’ll miss us while we’re away!
That’s why this video is so hilarious. Watch as an adorable little one runs to bid his dad farewell…a million times.
Enjoy it while it lasts, Dad! Your little guy will be an angsty teen before you know it. At least that won’t last forever either.
The Loch Ness Monster might be a little closer to home than you might think.
When heavy rainfall left this couple’s boat flooded, they were forced to remove the rain water the good old-fashioned way. To get the job done, they used a bucket to toss it into the surrounding water. But as the man’s wife sat by and captured the water-removal process on film, something unusual caught her eye.
The waters were relatively calm as they prepared to dry out their waterlogged boat.
That viral video of a woman twerking her way through a table and setting herself on fire? Yes, it’s still a great summary of Obama’s week, but last night Jimmy Kimmel revealed that he was trolling the Internet hard.
I’m not what you would call “outdoorsy.” In fact, I would call myself “indoorsy.”
But even if you’re a lover of Mother Nature and the Great Outdoors, it takes a certain kind of person to want to camp on the side of a cliff. In Estes Park, Colorado, Harry Kent’s Mountain Adventure Company allows even inexperienced climbers the chance to camp on the face of a rock, dangling above the world as they sleep.
Kent has been cliff camping for years and he says it’s a common practice among climbers. According to CNN, climbers who tackle mountain faces too high or too difficult for just one day simply camp out before continuing. “Climbing for me is like brushing my teeth,” Kent says. “It’s something I just do as part of my life.”
Cliff camping involves setting up anchors in the rock, using a pulley system to get gear up the rock wall, and setting up “portaledges” that can hold climbers’ weight.
Guide T. J. Sanford told a CNN reporter trying the experience, “You are always anchored and backed up. Redundancy is the key, and you are attached to two separate systems. It’s safer than riding in a car. It just seems scary because you are not in your comfort zone.”
Sanford knows people are freaked out by the height. He notes, “I’ve never had anyone fall off the ledge. I’ve heard stories of climbers, typically couples, getting too rowdy and causing the ledge to flip, but I’ve never had anyone just roll off.”
Sanford also says that being afraid is natural when cliff camping. “Being afraid of heights just means that your brain works properly,” he says. “As humans we aren’t supposed to be comfortable hanging off steep cliffs.”
The people who’ve done it say the adventure is totally worth it. Check out Kent Mountain Adventure Company’s video of these brave climbers.
If you can’t handle the heights for a night, Kent Mountain Adventure Center offers lunch and dinner packages to give you just a taste of the cliff camping experience. Check out the company’s site here!

With everything that’s been going on in the country lately, Texas SWAT Deputy Mark Diebold had started to doubt himself as a police officer. One morning, he decided to pray to God to send him a sign that he should continue on his chosen career path. Hours later, Diebold got a sign unlike any other.

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly seemed more agitated than usual last night as he criticized Sarah Palin for supposedly refusing to appear on his show. According to him, “Sarah Palin won’t do this program. She won’t come on the program because she doesn’t want to mix it up. She just wants to give a speech; nobody gives speeches here. Okay?”
