When it comes to walking across the country from California to New York, “for the heck of it” is as good a reason as any. In fact, in an age where publicity and profit seem to be much more common motives for this type of quest, 24-year-old Catherine Li’s largely under-the-radar 3,000-mile trek stands out as a true exception.
Two months after posting his ‘Starbucks Rant Song’ 25-year-old Starbucks barista Christopher Cristwell was fired by the jolly green coffee giant. Shirtless under his standard-issue Starbucks apron, Cristwell jokingly railed against the stereotypical entitlement and conduct of customers in the song.
Headed down an escalator at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta, Dallas-based hairdresser Isis Brantley (who counts neo-soul singer Erykah Badu as a client) was stopped by TSA agents who insisted on checking her ample Afro hairstyle for explosives.
If you think breaking in a wild horse is hard, wait until you try to guide a train of speeding shopping carts around a mall.
Filmed in the Indian city of Ahmedabad, this video shows an intrepid employee of the Iscon Mega Mall wrangling several carts in a pretty creative way. Though it may look like quite a challenge (it’s hard to put away one shopping cart, let alone a few dozen) apparently this shopping cart slide happens a few times every day. Just another day at the office.
You’re bound to meet a few interesting people when you take a year-long hitchhiking trip across the country.
Artist, traveler and self-proclaimed ‘lover of people’ Benjamin Jenks met exactly 930 when he and his raised thumb journeyed 5,000 miles from Los Angeles to Maine. Artist that he is, Ben put together a time-lapse video of his trip complete with photos of all 930 people he met along the way.
Dog may be God spelled backwards but in this video it’s a cat that sounds like it’s communing with the holy spirit. A native of Moscow, Russia, this grey cat named Fedor apparently chants like a Buddhist monk whenever his owner balances a book on her head to improve her posture.
When it comes to taking the subway, most people just want to relax. But while some are content to simply spend their commute reading a good book or listening to music, the flexy-bendy folks in this video felt the need to take it further when they performed an acrobatic ‘yoga’ demo in the middle of a crowded, moving, New York City subway car.
Chimpanzees are generally fearful of water, which makes the fact that Cooper the chimpanzee has learned to swim quite a feat. But that he’s also learned to breathe underwater with a SCUBA tank is truly incredible.
Dogs are no strangers to chilling out but chilling out in the passenger seat of a van while cruising down the California freeway, paw hanging out the window as the wind blows through your fur? That’s a whole different story. This Siberian Husky definitely knows a thing or two about easy riding. Good thing these two dudes caught it on film.
Hurricane Irene is on her way and preliminary reports suggests she’ll be a big one. To get an idea of just how big though, check out this aerial video of Irene filmed from the International Space Station as it passed over the Eastern seaboard.
