What IS this magical place where high-waisted cargo pant wearing chaps bump and grind to Salt-N-Pepa all night with their female companions?

The Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack in West Virginia, that's where.

The clip, originally uploaded to Facebook where it's racked up over a million views so far, has only one caption that just leaves us wanting more.

Aaron Purmort discovered he had a terminal brain tumor soon after he met his wife, Nora McInerny. Since the diagnosis, they have been sharing details of their struggle with the world through their blog myhusbandstumor.com.

And before he died, the couple decided to co-write his humorous and touching obituary, which was published over the weekend in the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Purmort, Aaron Joseph age 35, died peacefully at home on November 25 after complications from a radioactive spider bite that led to years of crime-fighting and a years long battle with a nefarious criminal named Cancer, who has plagued our society for far too long.

"I've never laughed and cried more in one sitting, but I'm so glad we got to do this," Nora wrote on the blog.

The end of the obit also states that he is survived by his "first wife Gwen Stefani," which Nora tweeted about following his death.

The family set up a crowdfunding page to raise money for medical costs and to help support his wife and child.

Nature photographer Jeff Cremer was working in the jungles of Tambopata, Peru a few years ago, when he uncovered several dozen worms in the soil glowing a strange green color.

Local entomologists had never seen anything like it before in the region but came to the conclusion that the animal is possibly the larvae of an unknown species of click beetle. He initially posted pictures of his findings on Reddit to help solve the mystery.

The .5-inch long worms have since been determined to be carnivorous as well, and use the glowing light to attract their prey into their terrifying jaws before chowing down.

Entomologist Aaron Pomerantz recently took a trip down to Peru with Cremer to investigate further, which you can watch in the video above.

These are the photographs and journal of George Murray Levick, who traveled with Captain Robert Falcon Scott (greatest name ever) on the ill-fated south pole expedition.



Via Discovery:

Levick was one of six men in Scott's Northern Party, who summered (1911-1912) at Cape Adare and survived the winter of 1912 in a snow cave when their ship was unable to reach them. Levick was not part of the team that accompanied Scott on his doomed quest to be the first to reach the South Pole.

After an arduous two-and-a-half month trek, Scott and his crew did make it to the South Pole on Jan. 17, 1912. But they discovered that the Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen had beat them to it. Scott and his team died on the way back to their base, faced with a blizzard and dwindling supplies.
