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??

Wanna know exactly what's going on when a hamster is stuffing its cheeks?? Check out the video (below) to find out!!

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.

cnn online runs hoax story asteroid destroying earth ireport journalism

Oh CNN… what's happening over there??

LOLz, we like to tease those over at the world's oldest and most well-respected cable news network, but this time they really screwed the pooch!

Most folks celebrated the extra-long holiday weekend with delicious food, extra naps, and perhaps a frosty adult beverage, but avid readers of CNN.com were perhaps not quite so lucky!

That's because the online new outlet published a user-submitted article stating that a huge friggin' asteroid was headed straight for the Earth and there was a 49% chance mankind would be wiped out in approximately 27 years.

The story, which ran for over 24 hours, warned:

tornado video north dakota scary oil workers

Whoa!! We haven't seen an oilman participate in something this intense since Daniel Day Lewis went bowling in There Will Be Blood!

It all started on Monday when a group of North Dakota oil workers, who were hopefully barbecuing up something delicious to commemorate Memorial Day, spotted a vicious and deadly tornado heading right toward their camp!

What did they do? Well, the same thing everyone would do in that situation! They hauled ass out of there!

A fleeing passenger even turned on his video camera and document the group's narrow escape!

Ch-ch-check out the horrifying and Not Safe For Listening To At Work (staring death in the eye apparently causes one to curse like a sailor on leave, LOLz) video…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Deadly storms rolled through the Great Plains and Southern U.S. over the weekend, leaving a path of destruction in their wake.

Violent hail and multiple tornados touched down in parts of Oklahoma, Arkansas, Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa and Missouri. The death toll tragically has climbed to 18 this morning.

16 of those deaths occurred in the suburbs of Little Rock, an Arkansas official confirmed. The twister carved an 80-mile path of destruction just north of the state’s capital. One person died in Oklahoma and another in Keokuk County, Iowa.

One tornado that hit Arkansas destroyed a brand new, $14 million school that was set to open this fall. Now, there is nothing left but debris.

Vilonia Schools Superintendent Frank Mitchell explained:
