Hamsters make super adorable pets who always bring the cuteness!

We could watch a hamster do anything, from running through tubes to watching them shove little bits of food into their cheeks!

Isn't that amazing?? The whole cheek stuffing thing?

Hamsters look so cute when their faces get all puffed up with food… but what's the science behind that? Where is all that food stored? Just how big are a hamster's cheek pouches??

Invisible Tornado Wrecks Up Rose Bowl Fanfest! It's A Tentnado!!

This is so NUTS!

Who would expect a freakin' tornado to pop up out of nowhere in California of all places?!

In the "fanfest" area of the Rose Bowl, the day before the big game a dust devil blew in.

Yes, a dust devil. The same type of swirly wind event that makes mini leaf-tornados in supermarket parking lots.

They can get pretty big, and when you combine a powerful dust devil with several tents and canopies, which weigh nothing and are basically sails, you get a tentnado.

And it's pretty damn serious. Even an entire bounce house is picked up and hovers for several seconds!!

We're glad there were no kids in that bounce house! That ride would've been WAY too fun and would've ruined any future ground-based bounce houses for them.

Seriously though, no one was injured and that's a miracle!

Check out the video (below) and watch the confused cow person not know what to do.

Birds are masters of the sky, there's no denying that.

The fact that they also have legs and can walk makes them pretty competent on land too!

But what if birds mastered swimming? They'd be the ultimate all-terrain creatures!!

Well one great horned owl proved that holy heck we're all about to be taken over by owls. Because this owl was spotted doing the breast stroke.
