Best. Dog. Ever?

Simply say "I'm parched," and this cattle dog will open the fridge, grab you a beer and even shut the door again before delivery.

Good boy Bandit, now fetch me some chips.

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.

Just a few days after the World Beard Championships, and a mere week before the ever-popular facial hair-themed month, Movember, director Kevin Smith has decide to shave off his signature beard.

He posted a photo of his new look on Facebook Monday, explaining his decision:

"Look at this goofy spaz. This is me, beardless, for the #YogaHosers green screen shoot. It's a Face-Brazilian!"

"Yoga Hosers" is the second film in Smith's Canada-centric "True North" trilogy, and follow up to "Tusk." Johnny Depp and Kevin Smith will both appear in the film with their daughters.

Following the shave shocker, one Redditor recalled this hilarious exchange he had with Smith years ago at a Q&A.
