When A Good Samaritan Found A Baby Sea Lion In The Road…He Did The Right Thing

When A Good Samaritan Found A Baby Sea Lion In The Road…He Did The Right Thing

Funny
It might sound odd for a sea lion to be found anywhere but in or around the sea, but it actually happens more often than you'd think. This little guy was found wandering around San Francisco not once...but twice! And this brazen buddy decided to take a break from the ocean and test out the pool. You see, when the moms need to find food for their pups, they sometimes leave them on shore. We imagine it can get a bit boring -- and maybe even scary -- so they opt to go out walking on their lonesome. When San Diego resident Matt McDevitt found this little guy waddling across a busy street, he knew just what to do. @nbcsandiego pic.twitter.com/nHM1w5Hxco— Matt McDevitt (@Matt_McDev24) February 16, 2016 Grabbing a friend and two beach towels, they stopped traffic and herded the conf...

This Poor Pit Bull Lived Next To A Highway Before Rescuers Saved Him From Horror

Funny

He Bought A Huge Block Of Salt And Made Something Beautiful With It

He Bought A Huge Block Of Salt And Made Something Beautiful With It

Funny
This is Himalayan rock salt. Instructables / kludge77 While most people use the beautifully colored salt slabs to cook with, YouTuber, creator, and all-around DIYer Peter Brown wanted to try something a little different. Even though he was well aware that working with rock salt can corrode and rust power tools, Brown was determined to make a lamp with the stuff. When you see the incredible results, though, you'll know that the risk is well worth the reward. First, he cut the huge slab into two four-inch squares using a bandsaw. Instructables / kludge77 This should be done carefully, as the salt cracks easily. Using a table saw, Brown cut a pi...

You Can Vacuum-Seal Your Foods Without Any Fancy Equipment

Funny
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); I hate wasting food so I try to freeze things when I find that I won't be able to cook them for a while. But getting that air-tight seal is almost impossible without one of those fancy vacuum machines. I've tried it all -- sucking the air out manually, using a straw, squishing the bag until the air leaves...but nothing really works. Ultimately, when I go to get my frozen food out, often it's got freezer burn!But now that I know this super quick water trick, I'll never have that issue again. This is seriously genius.

Animal sneezes are just as unique as human ones. You've got the tiny squeakers and the full-body screamers. But never have we seen or heard such a unique sneeze as the one coming from old Maggie here. Her owner Logan said that the 19-year-old rat terrier has been sneezing like this for years. He also noted that she quickly recovers after her little fits. Clearly, the spritely lady won't let a few dust balls get her down. Just wait for it... Keep on keepin' on, Mags.

You don't have to be an avid gardener to appreciate a beautifully constructed garden fence.
