  1. "Navy SEALs use Colin Kaepernick jersey to demonstrate attack dog"

    Those folks in the video are NOT Navy Seals. They are some idiots playing at people law enforcement. This was at the Navy Seals Museum, which is actually a private museum. The SEALS were not happy about this video.

  2. The crow and the see-saw. Is that a crow? I haven't seen any that aren't all-black.

    1. Here, let me search that for you:


  3. The "People taking fuel from an overturned tanker truck" flick was the most disturbing thing I've seen in a while. I was a volunteer firefighter, and this brings back memories. The screams were always more haunting than the injuries for me.

    I will say the video of the vandal was rather satisfying, though. These two videos showed two kinds of ignorance.

    1. I understand you first paragraph quite well. My mom spent the final years of her nursing career in the burn unit of our county general hospital; her classic white shoes were always blackened from silver nitrate.
