    If I were snowmobiling and I came across a bull moose who was on the same trail and traveling the same direction I was, there's pretty much no question what I would do: I would stop the snowmobile. And maybe turn around. Or at least wait until the moose had some time to get away from me. Because tailgating a moose doesn't seem like a super smart idea.

    Granted, I don't really have any personal experience with moose encounters, but I know they're big wild animals who can't be counted on to be like, "Oh, a human in a loud vehicle's chasing me, tra la la, I see NO reason to defend myself." Based on the viral video of two snowmobilers being charged by a pissed-off moose near Jackman, Maine last Friday, I'd say these creatures are no different from many parents: THEY JUST WANT THEIR PERSONAL SPACE, DAMMIT.

    We turn on the news and see images of the conflict in Syria, but we have the liberty to shut off the TV, walk out the door, and not be in the midst of the crisis. We perhaps are somewhat desensitized by what we see on television -- or our inner defense mechanisms protect us from delving deep into who the conflict is affecting. People. With faces and names and stories just like us. And children. They are living in the horror, amongst the bombs, suffering. Dying.

    Save the Children UK created a chilling 94-second video showing the transformation of one child's life as war breaks out where she lives. I didn't think seeing it would give me the range of emotions that it did. Watch it and see what I mean.

    Overnight, worldwide fame can be just about anyone's these days if you manage to upload a seriously viral video. That may be one of the reasons YouTube user Mia Munselle decided to share a bizarrely mesmerizing clip with the world this weekend ...

    The video shows a skydiver playing around in an aircraft and filming the scenery (and a companion giving the middle finger, it seems) before the camera apparently fell out of their hand and tumbled to the ground. What we see next is the GoPro camera's complete "dive" ... right into a pig pen, where it proceeds to film a cute and funny "finale" of sorts (snorts?). Munselle claims she "found the camera eight months later and viewed this video."

    Real? Or publicity stunt? Check it out, and you be the judge ...

    I'm not a fan of pranks. I might be okay with teeny tiny ones that are super small scale and of the no one gets too scared or freaked out variety. But generally, I'm a just say no to pranks kind of person. They sort of remind me of bullying. With the prankster being the one who brags and feels this sense of accomplishment in making someone else feel dumb. But this parking ticket prank is something entirely different. 

    It's heartwarming. It's a prank turned upside down. It's random acts of kindness. Check it out.

    You know those team building exercises so many companies do to boost morale and bond co-workers? I tend to dislike them. Not the team building sentiment, the actual act that is supposed to team build. But the US Navy Command and Control Squadron has done it right.

    VAW-116 Hawkeye Squadron -- the Sun Kings -- made a video of Outkast's Hey Ya back in 2006. Maybe you saw it then. Maybe you forget. You definitely have to check it out now.

    If I told you the LAPD had created a seven-minute public service video intended to educate the public about not leaving valuables in their cars, would you be excited about watching it? Yeah, that sounds about as thrilling as a high-definition, slow-mo clip of paint drying. But what if I told you the video involved … ZOMBIES?

    The LAPD apparently decided that the popularity of The Walking Dead means people will watch any damn thing with zombies, and while I kind of want to eye-roll their spectacularly lame creation, it's actually pretty hilarious. Somehow, this video crosses that delicate line between Just Downright Terrible and Awesomely Campy, and while I'm not completely certain it was the best use of police resources, "Invasion of the Zombie Bandits!" is surely more fun to watch than your typical PSA.

    Are you sick and tired of hearing the same people lodge complaints about the government shutdown on news programs? Even my close friends' tweet-insults at whichever politician they're peeved at in the moment are getting bor-ring to read. Words don't do a whole lot to change the situation or further a political cause, do they?

    But while most of us rattle our rants on Facebook and go back to eating lunch, an unassuming 45-year-old man named Chris Cox quietly bought a lawn mower, threw on jeans and a T-shirt, and headed up from South Carolina to Washington, D.C. He has made more of an impact than the millions screaming for change by doing something totally wacky and awesome: mowing the lawn in front of the Lincoln Memorial

    When Marina Shifrin made her "I Quit" video in stunning fashion doing an interpretive dance to Kanye West's "Gone," some people thought it was a bad idea, that she's burning bridges even though she was cool about it and called the company she was leaving "awesome." (I thought it ruled and in good form.) It was just time for her to go, so she left in what I thought was the best quitting video ever.

    Well her boss saw it, of course. Now ex-boss. And he answered with a video of his own. See that guy in the white shirt dancing on the desk with his hands in the air like he don't care? That's the boss. And the message he sends is something you have to see to believe.

    We've all worked a thankless job that quite literally sucked the life out us. One of those jobs where you felt like you gave everything -- every ounce of yourself -- that when you left each day and got home, all you had the energy for was to stare mindlessly at the TV and shove some take-out in your mouth. The end of that 40-plus-hour work week could never come soon enough, but then all you wanted to do on Saturday was sleep. Then Sunday would come and you spent the day dreading going back to work the next day. That's when it's time to quit.

    Marina V. Shifrin had enough of her job at a company that produces videos. She even calls the company awesome, but when it's time to go, it's time to go. She made her own "I quit" interpretive dance video at the office at 4:30 a.m., set it to Kanye West's "Gone," and gave it to her boss

    One of the good rules to live by in life right up there with don't stick your wet fingers in electrical outlets and don't throw rocks on fire at animals is don't be mean to children. They are our world's innocents and the sunflowery Earth knows there isn't a lot of innocence around these days. Which is why it really gets my goat that this big meanie of a woman steals a baseball right out of the hands of a little girl.

    The ball was reportedly meant for this little ponytailed cutie. Arizona Diamondbacks' Juan Miranda pitched it to her after it went foul at Houston's Minute Maid field. She had it in her arms when this woman (who resembles Kris Jenner) snatches it out of her arms with a slightly maniacal look on her face. Watch it and see.
