This video was taken by Keith Overton, who happened to be filming his son Mitchell ride the wake of a 53-foot Carver Voyager yacht, when the bottlenose dolphins start to swim alongside him. Lucky for Mr. Overton he had his camera on at the right moment and caught this amazing ride on camera.
Move over, Kelly Slater! There’s a pair of new surfing sensations in St. Pete/Clearwater. This video, taken recently off the coast of St. Pete Beach, was sent to us we just had to share. Keep your eyes peeled for our stars on the right side of the wave. Enjoy!
Duffy said she “didn’t want to take the ‘Terrible Tom’ stories at face value,” so on Thursday she went to the neighborhood and tried to walk past one of the birds.
Duffy had her camera rolling for her unexpected turkey run.
Neighbors told Duffy the turkeys have been in the area for years and usually scurry away when folks walk by. They say only recently two turkeys broke off from the flock and are intent on standing guard in their own empty lot.
Some people are carrying sticks to frighten off the turkeys, but neighbors say they don’t want any harm to come to them.
They just want friendlier neighbors.

This incident took place at Cajun Pride Swamp Tours, in LaPlace, Louisiana. Someone knew that a cat taking on an alligator would most likely get some exposure on YouTube.
Is this not one of the most unintelligent cats you have seen? Or is it incredibly brave? Personally, I just think it’s stupid. Why be brave when going against something that could demolish you in one second flat? Not worth it.

Smith’s nephew left Diamond, the one-year-old female pit bull with his aunt whom he shared a home with while he went away. When he came back to the home, he found no trace of the dog and had assumed that she managed to free herself from the chain she was normally tied to on the porch. Fortunately, an environmental enforcement officer had come across the dog’s body thanks to the smell of kerosene that was coming from beneath a mound of dried grass.
Diamond was found with an orange extension cord loosely tied around her neck and had some recognizable burns on her body. No animal deserves this kind of treatment for chewing one’s bible. And no one that reads the bible should feel that murdering a helpless animal is a good thing to do. What a sick and twisted woman.
Authorities said bail was not immediately set for Smith, who remains jailed in Spartanburg County, South Carolina after her weekend arrest.
Smith is charged with ill treatment of animals in general, torture, according to an arrest warrant.
She faces 180 days to five years in prison if convicted.
I hope this bitch gets the five years she deserves. Not only did she kill the poor dog, but she did it in the most inhumane way I could imagine. Sadly, diamond had to suffer and struggle for air before having her body burned and tossed away.

Karruim Demaio was an employee at a McDonald’s in Philadelphia, when he came across a bag of buns that a mouse had crawled in. He decided that he would record the footage with his camera and wait to see what would be done with the buns before exposing this story.
‘That wasn’t the first time. That was about the sixth or seventh time. That’s what made me like, I got to get video of this.
‘I was going back there to get something else and I heard some rustling, so I turned around, and I look, I seen a mouse inside the bread. Not on top of the package, but inside of the package.’
Unfortunately for the owner of this branch, Demaio wasn’t the only employee to come forward and speak out against the health code violations that had taken place.
Ken Youngblood, the owner/operator of the McDonalds franchise said: ‘After viewing the video, we are going to continue to investigate this claim to make certain we have all the facts. I want my customers to know that I am taking this matter seriously and will immediately address any issues that may exist. Therefore, if necessary, we will work with the appropriate authorities to get the facts.
Mr. Youngblood must be forgetting the various other health code violations that they have had at this particular McDonald’s.
According the Philadelphia Health Department, live flies were found in the food preparation area; perishable food was not kept cool enough; and refrigeration units were not working correctly. However there was no evidence of any rodents being found.
The report stated: ‘The establishment is not in satisfactory compliance… And current management practices have allowed unacceptable public health or food safety conditions.’

Well, obviously the girl has an upper hand…the lion, Malik, 6, is caged behind glass in an unnatural habitat, the zoo. This isn’t so much funny as it is sad to think what we do to these animals. This fierce king of the jungle is stuck behind glass barely able to intimidate Sophia Walker, a 3-year-old girl. Wow.
Rick Santorum is an ignorant jack ass who has no right to speak on the issue considering he has no experience with same-sex couples, parents, or colleagues. This man bases his views about gay marriage and gay parenting on what he believes to be the truth because of his religious beliefs. Sadly, due to this small reason, he hasn’t had any experience with gay people, at least, not enough to share any viewpoints on their lifestyles and how they impact a family.
If you are going to say that having an absent parent in prison is better than having two fully devoted parents, you are a completely ignorant dumb ass. Based on this comparison, I could conclude that being raped by a man would be better for me than to find love and compassion with a woman because while one is immoral (lesbianism), the other is a sin, but morally accepted based on the opinions of staunch Republicans who find the only relationship to be acknowledged should be between a man and a woman. Correct?
Citing the work of one anti-poverty expert, Santorum said, “He found that even fathers in jail who had abandoned their kids were still better than no father at all to have in their children’s lives.”
The thing I find ironically funny is that most of these parents who go into prison will most likely have a gay experience while in there. Does this mean that they are no longer a better choice than a law-abiding gay person?
FOR THE RECORD:
Rick Santorum: An article in the Jan. 7 Section A about the New Hampshire primary reported that GOP candidate Rick Santorum said in 2005 that gay marriage is no different from “man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be.” He said this in an interview with the Associated Press in 2003. A Los Angeles Times article on Oct. 2, 2011, also gave the incorrect 2005 date. —
Comparing molesting and/or raping children and bestiality to homosexuality is one of the most politically incorrect things I have heard out of someone’s mouth. We are not forcing people to have sex with us and be submissive to our needs. We are not looking for another species that cannot speak and say yes or no. We are not interested in children and corrupting youth. We want to love who we fall in love with, freely, openly, and without judgment. To compare of to perverted criminals with a lack of self-control is incredibly disrespectful and inaccurate. If someone with Santorum’s intelligence became President of The United States, I would not be able to proudly call myself American for I would be ashamed of the man who led this country and the voters who stood behind him.
Allowing gays to marry and raise children, Santorum said, amounts to “robbing children of something they need, they deserve, they have a right to. You may rationalize that that isn’t true, but in your own life and in your own heart, you know it’s true.”
There were three students that had grown up in gay households that were present for Mr. Santorum’s speech at the boarding school. Not surprisingly, these students made no scene and treated the speaker respectfully while he condemned their way of life and bashed their families morals. I would really love to hear what these students thought about what the GOP candidate had to say.
YouTube: Zach Wahls, a 19-year-old University of Iowa student spoke about the strength of his family during a public forum on House Joint Resolution 6 in the Iowa House of Representatives. Wahls has two mothers, and came to oppose House Joint Resolution 6 which would end civil unions in Iowa.
The fight to to keep marriage equality in Iowa continues, help us support Iowans like Zach.
