The odds seem astronomically high in this Rube Goldberg-style "trick-shot" stunt. Cree, whose YouTube page is all about Rube Goldberg machines and/or trick shots of all sorts, has set up a maze for six ping pong balls – each in its own starting lane (created by what looks like Scrabble racks) to travel through, with the hopes that at least one of the balls will end up in the plastic cup below. The thing that makes this so fun is that the balls can bounce, which might lead many (including me) to think they could end up just about anywhere in the room.

And in addition to stolen items, there's usually clean-up and repair needed since 95 percent of burglaries involve a forced entry. As horrible as it feels,… READ THE REST
Okay, so you're not the best cook, but we all have our flaws. And at least your creations are edible, right? Sure, that recipe for peanut butter and jelly chicken wasn't the best option to feed a dinner party, but it surely could have been worse than just a mild case of the runs after.… READ THE REST
We as humans run the gamut in super weird food allergies, from gluten to seafood (and, consequentially, cicadas apparently), but your precious pet may also be allergic to a host of other foods you're unknowingly feeding them. Everything from proteins to wheat could be causing your critter distress unbeknownst to you, and that's pretty scary.… READ THE REST
