Thrill-Seeker Turns Robot Into Terrifying Ride

The theme parks might be closed, but if you just happen to have a robot laying around, and you are a whizz when it comes to writing code, then you could create a ‘ride’ that is just as extreme as any you would find in a theme park.

In the video below, a brave volunteer strapped themself into a chair before the robot flung them around like they were a rag doll.

The video was shared on the Stanton Warriors Facebook page and has been viewed millions of times with just under 300k shares.

The willing (or unwilling) subject is spun around all over the place during the 45-second video clip.

At one point, they are spun upside down as the contraption fings them around at speed.

Would you be brave enough to give this a go? Let us know in the comments below!

WATCH: USS Bonhomme Richard Fire Injures 21 Crew Members

17 US Navy sailors have been injured after the USS Bonhomme Richard caught fire while she was undergoing maintenance work in San Diego.

The fire started shortly after 09:00 hours on 12th July following reports of a massive explosion.

Firefighting vessels could be seen surrounding the Wasp Class amphibious assault ship as the fire raged throughout the night.

As the time of the fire, the vessel had a minimal crew on board, which is standard practice when a military ship is undergoing major maintenance work.

Four civilians were amongst the total number of 21 people injured.

The cause of the fire is not known. In a recent video that has been uploaded to Twitter, a witness reported seeing the vessel list heavily to starboard.

The 843ft vessel was built in 1997 and saw active service in 2003 (Iraq) as well as being involved in various humanitarian campaigns.

WATCH: Boating Couple Rescue Baby Bear With A Large Plastic Bottle On Its Head

There is little denying that humanity seems to excel when it comes to polluting our environment with rubbish.

And, although we seem to be getting better at not leaving our garbage everywhere, it’s the animal kingdom that often ends up paying the price for our blatant disregard for the environment.

And the video below is a prime example of the extra burden we have put on the animal kingdom when it comes to their day-to-day survival.

When keen boaters Tricia Hurt and her husband were enjoying a calm cruise on a lake near their Wisconsin home, they noticed something moving in the calm waters.

As they moved closer, they were caught completely off-guard by what they saw.

A baby bear had got its head stuck in a large plastic bottle and was now swimming around the lake with it on his head.

The couple wasn’t sure how long the bear had the bottle on its head for, but they knew that, unless they helped her, then she would probably die of hunger.

And rather than just leaving the bear for dead, the couple stepped in and helped to save the bears life by carefully removing the large bottle from the bears head.

The caring couple managed to bring their boat alongside the bear as it continued to try and swim away from them.

As the bear started to swim quicker in a bid to try and get away from the boat, the large plastic bottle started to fill up with water.

As they circle round for another try, the baby bear continues to swim off into the distance.

But the couple does not give up.

As they come around for another try, a male in the boat reaches over the side of the small vessel and pulls the large bottle off of the bears head.

The elated couple shout “swim happy” to the baby bear as it paddles off into the distance.

WATCH: Man Cooks A BBQ On A Motorised Surf Board

Most people enjoy a good BBQ, and quite a few people enjoy being on the water. But what is the best way to enjoy both activities?

Well, if you have loads of cash, then you could buy a yacht complete with its own BBQ area.

But you are going to new a couple of hundred grand (not to mention the yearly maintenance costs, berthing costs etc. etc.)

Or, if you know anyone who is great at making ‘stuff’, then you could strap an inboard engine to a surfboard and then clamp a BBQ on to the front of the ‘thing’?

We spotted the video below this morning and thought that it would make the perfect solution for anyone who enjoys powering around on a lake while at the same time cooking up a BBQ.

WATCH: Hermes Worker Seen Lobbing Parcels Into The Back Of A Lorry

Have you ever waited ages for a vital parcel to arrive, only to be met with dismay when your package turns up looking like it has done tens rounds in the ring with Tyson Fury?

Have you often wondered what sort of painful journey your package might have been on for it to look like it has been through a pulping machine?

Well, a video has surfaced on social media that gives an insight into the sort of ‘bumpy’ journey your packages have as they make their way through the delivery system.

In a video uploaded to social media, what appears to be a Hermes worker can be seen lobbing parcels into the back of a Hermes truck.

We have to say “appears to be a Hermes worker” because he could be a sub-contractor etc. etc.

But damn, you have to feel sorry for anyone who wants to send a fragile item through the post only to have their valuables turn up looking like they have been through a mincer.

The worker scans the items before launching them into the back of the truck. The video itself has been viewed millions of times and has been shared just under 120k times.

Some of the parcels appear to have ‘fragile’ stickers on them as they are hurtled over the ever-increasing mountain of packages.

Maybe it is best just to courier valuable items yourself!? Let us know what you think in the comments below

WATCH: Woman Gets Kicked By Horse After Hitting It With A Spade

A woman has learnt a valuable lesson about karma after she was kicked by a horse that she hit with a spade.

A Facebook video posted over the weekend (see below) shows the woman getting kicked after she hit a wild horse with a plastic shovel.

The hungry horse was sniffing out some food that she had left on the beach.

But rather than just moving the food out of the way, the woman thought that hitting the horse would encourage it to move along.

It didn’t work.

Instead, the horse kicked the woman, and she fell onto the sand.

As the woman gets back up to her feet, another horse, accompanied by its foal, joins the ‘party’.

The incident happened on Assateague Island National Seashore – an idyllic place where wild horses roam free.

As the woman stikes the horse, someone can be heard to shout “watch out” as the horses prepares itself to unleash some instant karma.

The wild horses of Assateague Island National Seashore are protected, and U.S. Park officials advise visitors to stay away from them.

It should not take a genius to work out that if you leave food lying around in a nature reserve, then the residents of the area are going to, quite rightly, find out what you have brought into their home.

WATCH: Lockdown Lad Finds Dodgy Alternative Use For His Treadmill

If you are a fan of the gym, then you have probably found the last few months incredibly hard because your gym has been shut for so long.

I am reasonably sure that most of us now have added at least a few pounds to our waistline as we buy tonnes of fast-food from our local restaurants as a way of ‘supporting’ local businesses.

All those years of going to the gym and now we have to watch as our once toned bodies become just a shadow of their former selves.

If you are fortunate, then you probably have a treadmill at home as well as some weight-training equipment.

But several months of using the same pieces of fitness equipment over and over again probably means that you are getting bored of your home ‘mini-gym’.

Well, one lad has thought of a novel way of using his treadmill for some home-based entertainment as well as fitness.

It involves sitting in a washing basket and setting the treadmill to various speeds before hurtling yourself off of the back of the treadmill.

In a 30-second clip that has been uploaded to social media, over 95 people have shared their thoughts on the idea via the comments which they have left on the post.

The video has been ‘liked’ nearly 9k times and has had 31k shares.

Would you try this at home (assuming that you had a treadmill)? Let us know in the comments below!

WATCH: ‘Yapping Small Dog’ Helps To Foil An Armed Robbery

If you own a dog that is small enough to fit into a handbag, then you probably already know that tiny dogs often come with prominent personalities.

And a video that has been shared on Twitter by the New York Police Department shows just how brave these small dogs can be.

In the video, two masked robbers, one holding a gun, try to hold up a pharmacy in Brooklyn, New York.

As one of the masked raiders jumps over the counter, a small white dog appears to ‘confront’ the robber and starts to bark at him.

The dog disappears out of the shot and which point one of the robbers falls over and lands almost precisely where the small dog had been only moments earlier.

The thief then gets to his feet and runs out of the pharmacy empty-handed.

WATCH: What My Last Pringles See Right At The Bottom Of The Can

We have all been there; you are sitting down watching your favourite Amazon Prime flicks, eating your pringles when you get down to your very last few.

But your hand is too big to get them, and you don’t want to turn the tube upside down because, if you do, then the billions of crumbs will fall all over your sofa. 

So instead, you stretch your fingers out as much as you can as you try to reach for the last few pringles. 

You also have to keep peering down the can to see just how many you have got left before you go and get another can. 

The problem is, that you use so much force to try and reach them, that the remaining few pringles end up being destroyed meaning that you have no choice other than to resort to turning the can upside down. 

But a video that has been shared on TikTok gives us a glimpse into what our pringles must see as we scoop around, trying to find them. 

The video was uploaded by @BritishPromise.Cats and has been liked nearly 12 million times in just under 24 hours! 

WATCH: Man Speeds Downhill With Wheelchair Strapped To Skateboard

I admire anyone who can speed downhill on a skateboard without falling off.

Mainly because I can only manage one metre on flat ground before I fall off of one.

So when we saw the video below of a male who was sat in a wheelchair that was strapped to a skateboard darting down a hill, then we were, quite rightly, amazed.

He even manages to overtake cyclists as he reaches speeds which must be over 40 mph

The video was published on a page called ‘Vogue Cycling’ and shows the incredible moment that the unknown male manages to steer his skateboard using his wheelchair.

I think that most people would agree that, when it comes to skateboarding, then this video is truly amazing!
