Video: Dogs “Walk” Humans, Adoptions Rise

We've all seen ads for animal shelters and the Humane Society featuring sad faces of animals looking for their "furever" home. Yes, they can tug at your heart, and are quite often very effective.

Online ‘Planking’ Craze Leads to Man’s Death

Dinosaur Scares Australian School Children [VIDEO]

One of the first things a youngster learns about dinosaurs is that they have long been extinct. On a certain level, these Australian school children have internalized that lesson. However, when the life-like prehistoric beast starts to roar in this video (after the jump), some of them no longer seem so sure.
