Apparently the ability to fly wasn't good enough for bats. They just had to go and take swimming too. The one consolation here is that even though they can swim, they don't seem all that good at it. It's just a slow, floating "W".
Holly Monson was just trying to enjoy a nice day at the lake when she snapped some pics of her dog apparently trying to drown her sister, while clearly showing no remorse about it! In case you're wondering, everyone is fine, but the internet is meme-ing the situation to shreds and giving the best possible reactions.
Ryan Lochte finally got his punishment for pissing on the wall of a locked service station and pulling a framed poster from the wall in Rio during the Olympics and lying about it saying someone robbed him.

Summer's almost over, but the fun can keep going all Autumn long with this Giant Cockroach Raft!

New footage of a 15-year-old Michael Phelps was uploaded today where the now-Olympic Gold medalist says his goal was to just compete in multiple events in Athens.
He went on to win 6 gold and 2 bronze medals during those summer Olympic games.
What a humble kid!
Phelps goes on to talk about other teenager stuff, like getting a driver's license and becoming the best swimmer in the world. Ya know, struggles we all have.
One thing we know for sure, Phelps started doing his signature lip-licking thing at a very early age.
And in 2015...
It's tough to believe this isn't some airbrushed design on a 1990s shirt. The world can pull out some crazy beautiful things sometimes.
This group of humpback whales bask in the northern lights of Norway in a super peaceful swim along the coast.
According to the video's description:
This Spectacular footage of a group of humpback whales swimming under the northern lights off the coast of Norway was shot by Norwegian cameraman Harald Albrigtsen, who works for the Norwegian media company NRK.
Large gatherings of whales like this are common in the waters off Norway, and this time of year is prime time to see the northern lights in the country.
The lights most frequently appear between September and March.
Thanks, Earth. This is great.
Fifty-year-old Tor Eckhoff lives in Norway and works in a paint factory.
In his spare time he does a lot of really weird/cool stuff, and he shares it with the rest of the world through his YouTube channel.

A family in Adelaide, Australia recently woke up to this guy taking a dip in their pool with the dogs.
After its leisurely swim, they helped the kangaroo out using a broom.
It then chilled out on their patio for a bit before hopping off, because – hey – it's like 80 degrees there right now.
Spotted by birder Steve Spitzer, the owl appeared to be 'swimming' in Lake Michigan. Another birder at Loyola Park Beach in Chicago says he saw the Great Horned Owl get apparently forced down into the great lake by two Peregrine Falcons.
Spitzer captured video and photos of the owl, but he didn't catch any of the falcon attack, as he and others at the beach were busy trying to scare the falcons away. Spitzer said bird rescue was called to the scene, but the owl flew away.
