If you think you have seen it all then think again. Due to a spontaneous gust of wind these two planes took off and cruised off into the sunset without a pilot. These planes are designed to take off and land on very short distances (STOL) and therefore they are very light. I wonder how far they flew? Image Source: Screenshot/Youtube/2016.

Most people know that feeling when camping or at festivals when you just aren’t able to shower, that weird feeling creeps up, that you feel dirty. All you wish for is a hot shower, to clean yourself off. Now you can easily change that with pocket sized wipes, that are, when folded out 16 times larger than the normal ones.

The Epic Wipes, known also as towelettes are made from bamboo and are 100 percent biodegradable. The Seattle-based startup Epic Wipes is currently seeking $10,000 via Kickstarter, which it has surpassed with a total of $20,725 from 476 backers. 4 wipes will cost about $14, the exact dimensions of each Epic Wipe are 31.5 in x 19.7 in and they are also reusable.

The footage had been recorded on the Royal New Zealand Navy’s HMNZS Otago, while battling a storm packing 50 miles an hour winds and sixty foot swells. The video is not for the faint of heart, the crashing wave is so massive the bridge briefly appears underwater.

The Otago is an offshore patrol vessel and is 270 feet long and has a crew of 34. The vessel is mainly used to patrol distant territories, fisheries protection, and search and rescue. Image Source: Screenshot/Youtube/2016

A massive gator was spotted at the Buffalo Creek Golf Club in Palmetto, Florida. According to the employees at the golf club, the sight of the possibly 15 foot long alligator is nothing new. The beast seems to have been roaming the grounds of the small course in Florida for years and has only recently become a local attraction for residents and tourists in the area. Visitors don’t seem to think the animal poses any kind of threat to them. Photos of the gator posted on Facebook and Twitter show just how large he (or she) actually is.

A lecture at the University of Washington was suddenly interrupted when a student, who was taking a snooze behind the projection screen, fell on the floor as he woke up. He then walked off like nothing happened. Great reaction skills or did he just not care? Image Source: Screenshot/Youtube/2016

A diver uses a metal trap to capture a 3ft bobbit worm hiding beneath the ocean floor. The worm was pulled from its sandy lair by a device similar to a mousetrap, and is commonly found off the coast of Indonesia.

Bobbit worms are ambush predators who have been known to eat fish and coral. The video quickly went viral and since gathered more than 100,000 views. The clip of the worm was shared on YouTube by a poster called Trapula who claims that he caught the worm to use as bait for his fishing needs. Image Source: Screenshot/Trapula/2016.
