Marine Takes On 30 Cops At Occupy Wall Street - And WINS!

Filed under: Inspiration

This is absolutely incredible!

In light of the NYPD police brutality that has been going on with protestors at the Occupy Wall Street movement, a 24-year-old Marine veteran, already having completed two tours in Iraq, named Sgt. Shemar Thomas literally took on about 30 cops yesterday to chastize the unwarranted behavior on unarmed citizens!

Check it out (above)! It's EPIC!

And we have to say, pretty badass and inspiring!

We wish more politicians had this kind of experience and insight into the public!

Tears!

CBS showed this HEARTBREAKING video Hawkeye saying goodbye to his owner by walking up to the casket, lying down in front of it.

His owner, Marine Jon Tumilson, passed away on August 6 when Taliban insurgents downed his helicopter with a rocket-propelled grenade.

Thanks for your service Jon. RIP!

We Aren't Even Close To Having Discovered All The Species On Earth

Filed under: Sea CreaturesFishDiscoveryNatural WonderCrazzzzyWildlifelizardsFrog

So, if you thought we were doing a pretty good job at discovering species, we hope your definition of "good job" doesn't rely on "speed or scope."

Why? Because we've only found 1.9 million species.

That sounds like a lot, right? Well, not really when a new study is out saying there are 8.8 million species on the planet.

WOW!

"Of those species, 6.5 million would be on land and 2.2 million in the ocean, which is a priority for the scientists doing the work since they are part of the Census of Marine Life, an international group of scientists trying to record all the life in the ocean.

The research estimates that animals rule with 7.8 million species, followed by fungi with 611,000 and plants with just shy of 300,000 species."

Researchers should get on this, as it could take up to 500 years to complete the catalogue if those numbers are correct!

Check out the video above to hear all about it, and to see some of the newest species to be found!

Will Mars Be A Vegan Planet?

Will Mars Be A Vegan Planet?

Vegans in space!

A rocket producer called SpaceX recently announced they're planing on flying people to Mars to make a human colony. We know what your thinking — What will they eat??

Okay, it's not the first thing that came to our mind either. But the people at PETA were all over it! They're petitioning that Mars should be an all-vegan planet!

The animal rights group sent out a press release saying:

“the Martian colony is an opportunity to make a kind civilization in which humans don’t exploit other beings. And since the animal agriculture industry is toxic to human health and to the environment, an all-vegan civilization would ensure that the new Martian citizens would have long and healthy futures.”

Hmm… that's IS something to think about.

Even if their dream of a vegan-friendly planet doesn't come true, we think it's awesome the PETA's goals don't end at home. Looks like they won't stop till the whole universe is rid of animal cruelty!

Winter: America's Next Top Dolphin

Filed under: Film FlickersDolphins

Winter the Dolphin With Prosthetic Tale

Flipper best call his agent! There's a new dolphin celebrity, and she's about to take over the big screen.

They call her Winter, and her life story is the focus of Dolphin Tale - a movie opening next month that stars Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd and Harry Connick Jr.

Why does she deserve all the attention? Well, aside from being your average super adorbz dolphin, Winter is the fist and only dolphin with a prosthetic tale!

The poor thing lost her tale in a blue crab trap when she was only 3-moths-old. She was taken to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium where she surprised a lot of people just by surviving. that when VP of prosthetics at Hanger Prosthetics and Orthotics Kevin Carroll, heard about the brave little dolphin and decided to design her a new tale. (What a sweetheart!)

This was over than five years ago, and since then, Winter's fame has spread far and wide and has helped the aquarium's attendance. But now that she's getting her own movie… well, there's no doubt it's gonna skyrocket her stardom!

Let's just hope it doesn't go to her head.

Watch the trailer for Dolphin Tale HERE!

Betty White Swims With Whales

Filed under: Betty WhiteCuteness!Whales

How does she keep getting cuter??

Betty White reunited with Beethoven the beluga whale, who she met last year at the Atlanta's Georgia Aquarium.

The two shared such a connection that White featured the whale in her new book, expected later this year. Bet loved the whale so much that she gave him his own chapter!!

White, who flew back to Atlanta for the reunion, said that she was thrilled to be able to get in the tank with Beethoven.

However, the veteran actress will not be getting up close and personal with one Sgt. Ray Lewis after declining his invitation to a military ball.
