Donald Trump's refugee ban, explained

"Americans are more likely to be killed by their own clothes than by an immigrant terrorist." ...

It's not a "muslim ban," but it's close.

On Friday, President Donald Trump overhauled US refugee policy — laying the groundwork for a fundamental shift in how the US allows people to enter the country.

Trump signed an executive order Friday afternoon that bans all immigrants and visa holders from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the US for 90 days, and opens the door to more country-based bans in future.

The Hagfish Is the Slimy Sea Creature of Your Nightmares

"At the bottom of the ocean dwells a bizzare-looking creature. A fish so ancient, it has remained unchanged for 300 million years. This is the hagfish."  
Ooooh, so excited. It's mini-documentary time big kids...

The hagfish is a slime-emitting ocean-dweller that's remained unchanged for 300 million years--and it shows. It has a skull (but no spine), velvet smooth skin, and a terrifying pit of a mouth that’s lined with rows of razor-sharp teeth.

Big Booty Injections Gave Me A 59 Inch Butt: HOOKED ON THE LOOK

"I've had guys pumping gas at the gas station and they're watching me and... they drive off with the pump in the car..." Mmmm-mmm. Probably wondering why you got so much more 'junk in the trunk' than they do...

Brainy economics graduate, Courtney Barnes,decided to turn her back on her training and make money by flaunting her 59 inch booty to her avid online followers. Courtney, from Miami, underwent three rounds of illegal butt shots six years ago at one of the thousands of illegal “pumping parties” that take place across the states. The end product was much bigger than she expected but now the 32-year-old cam-girl and model is using her super-sized butt to her financial benefit.

FedEx Driver Guides Big Rig Down Icy California Mountain Road After Brakes Lock on Trailer

This here folks, is what you call a 'controlled slide'. 
(We learn something new every day). The video has gone viral with over 29M views on Facebook. Loved the officer's response at the end...
FLORISTON, Calif., Jan. 13 (UPI) -- The California Highway Patrol shared a video of a big rig driver gliding his truck down an icy mountain road after the brakes in his rear trailer locked up.
The CHP's station in Truckee posted a video to Facebook showing the FedEx truck sliding down Interstate 80, near Floriston, while being escorted by troopers who ensured the road ahead would be clear.
"The driver had jackknifed at the top of the grade," the Facebook post said. "When the driver had lost it at the top of the hill, he had broke the air lines to his rear trailer. This caused the brakes on the rear trailer to lock up. We arrived on scene and were informed the tow was going to be extended. So we asked the driver if he could get himself going and we would give him space to get down to the next open shoulder on the Interstate." - upi

CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Utah Toddler Saves Twin Brother Pinned Down By Fallen Dresser (2 Videos)

A scary moment caught on a nanny cam when an eight-drawer dresser tipped over on a toddler...



Fast Fact: According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, from 2013 to 2015, an estimated 33,100 people were treated annually in hospital emergency rooms for injuries involving appliances and furniture. More than half — 52 percent — involved children under the age of 18. And in 61 percent of the cases, the injuries were caused by furniture falling or tipping over.

In June 2015, the agency launched “Anchor It,” a public education campaign to prevent such accidents from killing or seriously injuring children.

Last summer, Ikea, the largest furniture retailer in the world, recalled 29 million dressers following the deaths of three toddlers. In all incidents, a piece of Ikea furniture had tipped over them.

"For most people, the Arctic is still an alien place, difficult to understand and empathize with..."

The Arctic is changing. 2016 saw record temperatures worldwide, in some places it reached 20C (68 F) above the average. As a result the Arctic is melting. In 2016 the Northwest passage had an ice-free summer, allowing cruise ships access to one of the most remote places on Earth. This virtual tour is a more environmentally-friendly way to view this majestic landscape, and a stark reminder of the consequences of our environment-damaging behaviour.

A Machete Martial Arts Master Shares His Secrets | Short Film Showcase

In Haiti, the machete is both a weapon and a farmer’s key to survival. This dichotomy is especially true for Alfred Avril, a master machete fencer and subsistence farmer. The traditional art of machete fencing can be traced back to the Haitian Revolution. With fewer guns than the soldiers they were battling, many slaves fought with the machetes they had used to toil the sugarcane fields. In this short film from Third Horizon, Avril shares his mysterious craft as well as the practical and spiritual value of the machete throughout Haitian history.

Prankster Changes Famous 'HOLLYWOOD' Sign to 'HOLLYWEED' (+ Some Hollywood Sign FACTS! + Videos)



This must have taken some time - or so we thought. But if you look closely, you can see it was some mere cloth-coverings all in the right places that changed the two 'O's to 'E's. Ingenious! Many see this as a good sign and have posted their reactions on social media. 
This wasn't the first time the sign was changed to 'HollyWEED' either. 
Back on Jan. 1, 1976, the same day California’s relaxed marijuana law took effect. Cal State Northridge student Danny Finegood had a plan to alter the sign by using $50 of curtains and a couple friends. And it worked, giving Hollywood a Hollyweed sign for a short time. Check out some more interesting Hollywood Sign facts at the end!...
