This little guy is a testament to all of us for facing life's challenges and overcoming them.

Mercury

Meet Mercury: a 7-week-old kitten who loves to run, jump, play and wrestle. The only thing that sets him apart from any other kitten is that fact that he's missing his front two legs and most of his toes. It's believed that Mercury was the victim of a weed whacker incident, based on yard work that had been done around the neighborhood. He was taken in and nursed back to health. Despite his challenges, he is able to run and play like most any other kitten!

Mercury

Way to go, Mercury!

Americans are enthusiastic about the promise of science but lack basic knowledge of it, with one in four unaware that the Earth revolves around the Sun, said a poll out Friday.

The survey included more than 2,200 people in the United States and was conducted by the National Science Foundation.

Ten questions about physical and biological science were on the quiz, and the average score -- 6.5 correct -- was barely a passing grade.

You probably didn't see the best Super Bowl commercial during last night's game. The commercial only aired in Georgia and was for a personal injury lawyer named Jamie Casino. It is so amazing, over the top, and awesome that no other commercial even comes close.

What do you think happened when Bill Gates challenged the greatest chess player in the world to a match? He was embarrassingly defeated. Magnus Carlsen, 22, beat the founder of Microsoft in just over one minute of playing. Watch Carlsen's eyes as he continually stares at the chess board as though he has every move figured out almost before Gates even makes it.

Luca Iaconi-Stewart has dropped out of college to work on this beauty. That's how committed he is to the extreme detail of this Boeing 777 jet. He's been working on the 1:60 model made entirely out of manila folders for the past five years and expects to be finished with it in early 2014. When we say detailed, we really mean it! The model has working landing gear and even the opening doors are meticulously accurate to the original aircraft.
