Ever notice a seaside restaurant and think to yourself, hmm, that's super close to the ocean… isn't that dangerous?
But then you just assume that they engineered the place in such a way that it didn't matter.
Well apparently momma nature likes to remind us every now and again that we don't rule the world.
Just like when people were dining at the Moby Dick Restaurant at Santa Barbara's Stearns Wharf, as they filmed the incredibly rough seas, the last thing they expected was
In the battle of the elements, it looks like the current score is Hugh Jackman: 1, Momma Nature: 0!!
The X-Men: Days of Future Past was getting ready for his daily workout routine and was going to go for a jog in New York when he noticed a small blizzard going down outside!
But did he let that get in the way of his exercise? Heck no!! Hugh eats snow like that for breakfast!
OK, so that's probably not true at all, but you get the point.
Hugh decided to brave the cold and bundled up in a nice thick coat and the weather didn't really seem to bother him much! In fact, he was in a pretty good mood as he stopped to greet a fan and even chatted with a photographer!
Who knew Wolverines loved the snow so much??

The only word anyone should be using in regards to this story and this brain surgeon is "heroic."
Many cities in the past few weeks have been all but shut down due to the ice and snow, and it's been so dangerous — and not just dangerous for people out there driving and traveling, but also those who need care in hospitals.
Dr. Zenko Hrynkiw (amateur Rutger Hauer look-alike) risked his own life to save another, regardless of the weather! He walked SIX MILES in the snow to perform an emergency life-saving brain surgery at Trinity Medical Center in Alabama.
And he's straight up humble about it, saying:
This Sunday is a pretty big day for Bruno Mars as he'll be taking center stage at MetLife Stadium as the WHOLE country watches his performance!!
Oh yeah, and then two football teams will be playing each other for bragging rights or whatever in Super Bowl XLVIII.
Well, Bruno recently began rehearsing for his huge day, and he says there's one tiny problem he's run into:
LOLz! It's like the punchline of a ridiculous joke about Wisconsin and how they make cheese or something — but we get the feeling they'll be the ones with the last laugh if they can pull this off!
They're going to use CHEESE to de-ice their roads!
Well, salty cheese brine to be exact! They're mixing it with traditional road salt, which is super expensive. Just last year Milwaukee spent about $6 million on that salt alone, and it creates a harmful runoff when the ice melts!
Plus it's SUPER hard on cars!
So the city has joined a $6,500 pilot project! The science is like this: for every eight gallons of cheese producers' leftover wastewater, it will be mixed with a ton of rock salt. The best kind of brine comes from provolone and mozzarella, as they don't need much preparation before hittin' the ice!
Apparently there has been no negative backlash from this yet — no reports of excess lactose intolerance, or gross smells!
Sounds like an awesome solution to us!

It looks like Matthew McConaughey's Brazilian family vacation wasn't all sunshine and rainbows!
In fact, it was quite the opposite as he got hit with some serious rain!! Matty was suiting up for a run in Belo Horizonte this week when the sky opened up and it just started POURING!
Did he let that get in the way of his jog? HECK NO! He just put on a rain jacket and went on with his business like it was no big thing!
Mmmmmm. Dallas all sweaty and wet! Just how we like him! LOLz!

At first glance, you'd think Justin Bieber was just playing a game in a country that just got torn apart by a massive typhoon.
You'd be quick to judge, though, and wrong — yes, Justin is playing basketball, but he's also there to actually help! He launched a brand new campaign to help victims of last month's killer typhoon!
The basketball thing is just to raise spirits! He was playing basketball with children survivors of typhoon Haiyan during his visit!
We hope he does some major good for them! He has plenty of help he could be spreading around!
