We love the embarrassed look Paul McCartney gave when he was caught dancing to ELO at the Grammy’s

Most millennials and pop music-listeners today don’t know who Electric Light Orchestra is. So, when they hit the stage with Ed Sheeran performing classic throwbacks like Evil Woman and Mr. Blue Sky, it’s no wonder the audience didn’t respond with much enthusiasm. One of the few in the audience to truly appreciate (and remember) ELO was Sir Paul McCartney. Caught on camera, he was the only one standing up and and rocking out to their performance. Remember, ELO frontman and songwriter Jeff Lynne co-produced eight tracks on McCartney’s 1997 Flaming Pie album, as well as doing production work on Macca’s 2000 cover version of Maybe Baby.

Have you ever heard a hummingbird snore? Spoiler: it’s pretty unforgettable!

Nicole Hughes Contributor

By Nicole Hughes in Video on Tuesday 27 January 2015

Hummingbirds– known for flying backwards and being amongst the smallest birds in the world– also snore. (We had no clue!) Weighing less than a penny, these birds get their name from the humming sounds they make from their beating wings. Flapping around 50 times per second, but potentially as fast as 200 times per second, it’s not wonder they are known for humming.

In Japan, competitive hole-digging is an actual thing

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Video on Saturday 24 January 2015

Now this is new: an annual competition that actually pits teams against each other for digging the deepest hole as they build camaraderie. Though it sounds vaguely morbid: why dig a hole, if not to bury a dead body? In any case, the Japanese seem to take it very seriously, with 271 teams taking part in the 14th edition last year to win the coveted prize of a… gold shovel. Uh huh.

Craigslist strangest ad for dog walking just got stranger

Nicole Hughes Contributor

By Nicole Hughes in News on Saturday 24 January 2015

We all know Craigslist is a bizarre place filled with weird ads by the oddest of people. But some ads tend to outshine the weirdness of others. This Seattle-based post tops them all…for now at least. This guy is advertising to walk your dog, if you’d let him. He starts off by asking if you’re too busy to walk your dog in the most creative ways like, ‘Are you going out of town with your post-divorce trophy-girlfriend to visit your slave ship collection in the Barbados?’

Nicole Hughes Contributor

By Nicole Hughes in New Food and Packaging on Friday 23 January 2015

Pizza Hut went where not many companies would go. They advertised how much their customers hate their products. Well, one of them anyway. And it only makes us want to try it more! Just in time for Australia Day, Pizza Hut is launching a new pizza with a Vegemite-filled crust. Yep, that Vegemite, the typically Australian yeast paste, an acquired taste and one that (most) foreigners are definitely not used to (cue gag reflexes)

Christ and Lucifer are baby names that have been taken off New Zealand’s list

Nicole Hughes Contributor

By Nicole Hughes in News on Thursday 22 January 2015

New Zealand law can reject names for any number of reasons. If they are too long, resemble a title, rank or considered offensive, then they can’t be used. Simply as that! Last year, the NZ Department of Internal Affairs knocked many names off the list. A couple who tried to name their baby Senior Constable was rejected (thank goodness!). And those who entered symbols like ‘3rd’ and ’09’ were also rejected.
