Arnold decided to take a bike ride around the city while visiting Edinburgh in Scotland. He seems like he's having a great time, there's only one problem. He's riding the wrong way on the road, leading everyone with him into oncoming traffic.

What? Were you expecting Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Terminator, to wear a helmet and follow traffic regulations?

At least it looks like he had a good time, even if he did stop in the middle of traffic to take this picture:

This shark vs. man struggle belongs in a movie, not in real life! Scientists are saying that this shark appeared at the end of a California pier due to the warm waters caused be El Nino.

Marine biologist Andrew Nosal of Scripps Institution of Oceanography told NBC 7 News that it was probably a baby shark. In fact many baby Great White sharks that have been tagged have been detected in the area. Nosal says that young sharks don't normally attack people but, as with any large, toothy animal, it's best to stay cautious.

Warning: Some of the in between banter includes a NSFW word or two. 

David Bowie was known as an amazing performer with an ever changing style so it's not too surprising that he was able to nail these impersonations so well.  The story in the description of this video says it all:

The day Bowie was first due to show up at Westside, we were all a bit nervous — Bowie was the biggest star client for Clive and Alan at that point in time. We kept looking out the windows, waiting for a stretch limo to show up and an entire entourage to walk in, but then a black cab showed up and out popped the unaccompanied Bowie. He walked in, announced in what seemed a more cockney voice than I remembered, “Hi, I’m David Bowie,” and shook our hands. He seemed smaller than I imagined he would be in person. A bit later I noticed that the cockney had dissipated somewhat and he also seemed to have grown more upright and taller, too. I thought, “Wow, he really is a chameleon,” and wondered if the earlier exaggerated cockney was his way of reducing his superstar status temporarily to put people at ease on first meeting him.

The impersonations on this YouTube posting were recorded in August '85, when Bowie came in to do the lead vocal. At the end of the session, he broke into the impersonations and I realized that these might get erased at some point, so I quickly put a cassette in and hit “record.” I wish we could hear the other side of the dialogue between Bowie and Clive and Alan, but unfortunately that wasn’t being recorded.

There used to be a rumor that if you call 999, the UK version of 911, you can charge your phone. It's a myth that's often had to be debunked by local police forces all over England. Apparently it all started with Blackberry and what turned out to be a flaw in the programming that developers intended to be a helpful way to conserve battery power for emergencies only. 

Youtube host Tom Scott travels all the way to the Blackberry headquarters in Slough, England to set the record straight. 

As a sidenote, for those of us who are not UK residents, he also takes a moment in the comments to explain why Slough is such a punchline in the video.

Lynea Lattanzio is by far the cat ladiest of cat ladies. She started rescuing and rehoming cats and just couldn't stop. Now she shares her home with around 800 adult cats and 300 kittens according to the video description. This number is ever changing of course, because in addition to caring for so, so many cats who roam free on her six-acre property, she rescues cats and rehomes the ones who are fit for adoption.

 What started out as a hobby she paid for out of pocket has become a non-profit, no-kill sanctuary called Cat House on the Kings which is run on donations and adoption fees.
