This is pretty awesome. Of course, it’s fun to watch dogs driving cars, but it’s also cool because the purpose of this dog driving course, conducted by a charity in New Zealand, is to get more people comfortable with the idea that rescue dogs are intelligent, can be trained, and are worthy of adoption.

This is absolutely hilarious… but also absolutely sad. Most of what is in this Daily Show fracking video is no joke at all. The ramifications from fracking that are highlighted here are real — even the earthquakes. And Chevron’s attempt to pacify a community that had just seen an explosion that killed one of its

It read: “Quick poll: Obamacare was signed into law four years ago yesterday. Are you better off now than you were then? Comment with YES or
Via the Washington Examiner: IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told a House panel that congressional investigators can try to hold him in contempt over theTea Party targeting scandal whenever they think that they can make the charge stick, something he thinks is unlikely.

Below are the original commercials in case you missed them (first two), followed

There’s no denying it: Republicans kick Democrats’ asses when it comes to messaging. But things may be getting a bit better.

Originally published on Bikocity. This looks like a stunt or a fake video or something, but apparently it’s not. A Brazilian bicyclist was minding his own business when a guy driving a truck (quite fast, I might add) saw the bicyclist at the last minute, swerved, and delivered a mattress to the bicyclists backside… after

If you just purchased a white poodle in Argentina, you should take a closer look because it might just be a large ferret with very poofed up fur. A Dallas TV station reported recently that a man at a bazaar in Argentina bought what he believed were two toy poodles, but when he got them
