Dashcam videos capture a lot of close calls, but this has got to be one of the most unique.

YouTuber Paul Ellis uploaded footage today of a hot air balloon traveling dangerously close to Marine Drive in Southport, England. You can see the balloon lose height and creep way too close for comfort toward busy traffic.

Luckily for Paul, the balloon operators and everyone else on the road—the hot air balloon manages to escape any collision with vehicles.

This tale is a perfect example of why drivers should invest in a dashcam. Hot air balloon collision will sound pretty suspicious your insurance company.

Nope. Nope. Nope.

An Oregon man found an whole rodent just chillin' inside his Subway sandwich. And if you think this is faked, like so many of these stories before, think again!

The state health department has confirmed that this actually took place.

Just look at that little guy—all comfy under a warm bed of spinach.

Matt Jones witnessed the mouse go into his friend's sandwich.

"It's the funniest thing I've ever seen, but it's also the most disgusting thing I've ever seen," Jones told KWG8. "I laughed because I was like, there is no way this just happened."

The only ray of hope is that the rodent probably didn't come from inside the Subway, but from the spinach company.

On second thought, that's actually not better at all.

Not everyone who has a beard is a terrorist—go figure!

Apparently the group's flag looks similar to the official flag for ISIS. And because beards = terrorists.

According to Swedish media, police showed up to the meeting at Brahehus castle and had a good laugh at the case of mistaken identity.

Florida Man took the night off from causing mayhem, and Florida Woman took his place.

Whitney Beall, a 23-year-old woman, was arrested this weekend for drunk driving after using the mobile app Periscope to live-stream her entire ride.

"I'm super drunk, I don't even know how to explain it," she says to start the 11-minute broadcast below. The entire broadcast lasted over 40 minutes.

With tips from viewers and one officer using their own Periscope account to spot landmarks, police were able to safely stop Beall.

"Officers advised that they smelled the odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from Beall, her speech was slow; her eyes were bloodshot and glossy," a Lakeland PD Facebook post said.

It seems Florida Woman got the attention she wanted. And luckily no one was hurt.

This one really stinks.

UFC star Urijah Faber had a very eventful party after a woman stormed into his house, locked herself in his bathroom and pooped everywhere.

Faber was entertaining guests at his Sacramento home where he captured the entire event on Snapchat. The police eventually showed up and escorted the very stinky woman away.

If there was one good thing from this tale, it was this: Faber made some new friends.

Police in the UK were fooled by one very realistic looking doll.

What started out as a rescue mission to save a baby left laying in the front seat of a locked car ended in embarrassment for police in Dudley, West Midlands.

After a concerned citizen notified the police of an infant in danger, officers jumped into action—smashing Delesia Rattray's car window. But they didn't find what they expected.

When Rattray returned to her car she found a note from police telling her to call the station. Fearing that a baby's life was in danger, the police smashed her window to save what turned out to be Rattray's 10-year-old sister's baby doll.

The doll was wrapped in a blanket with only its head poking out. Police have since apologized and agreed to cover the cost of replacing the window.

You tried, Dudley police. You tried.
