    In an attempt to show women who won’t stop complaining about wearing heels what wimps they are, Brandon Cohen took it upon himself to “straight up dominate the heel game” by wearing a pair of strappy high heels for an entire day.

    Unfortunately for him, things don’t go quite as planned.

    The day starts at 8:30 a.m. with Cohen exchanging his shoes for a pair of black high heels. After only a few steps, he begins to immediately regret his decision.

    “I’m already in so much pain it’s astounding,” he says while he waits for the elevator.

    Cohen is then shown trying — and failing — to power through his daily activities from a whole new altitude.

    When he goes out for lunch, he recognizes his first mistake: parking so far away from the exit.

    As he goes down a stairwell, he grips both sides of the handle bars saying “this is just… not safe.”

  • Man who recorded doctors mocking him during surgery wins $500,000 lawsuit

    A man about to undergo a colonoscopy in Reston, Virginia, had a little pre-op preparation of his own: pressing record on his smartphone.

    The Vienna-born man intended to capture the instructions that his doctor would give him after the procedure – but instead, he got so much more.

    To his shock, when the man got home following the surgery, he uncovered a lengthy conversation of the surgical team mocking him while he was in his anesthesia-induced state, the Independent reports.

    To make matters worse, in addition to their commentary, the doctors discussed avoiding the man after his surgery, instructing an assistant to lie to him and then place a false diagnosis on his chart.

    “After five minutes of talking to you in pre-op I wanted to punch you in the face and man you up a bit,” the anesthesiologist is heard telling the sedated patient in the video.

    A medical assistant notes that the patient has a rash, and the anesthesiologist warns her not to touch it because she might get “some syphilis

  • British man kicked out of Canada for helping girlfriend fix up her apartment

    A young British man was given “eight days to leave Canada” for helping his girlfriend fix up her apartment.

    Tom Rolfe, 24, is accused of “denying a Canadian person a job” by immigration officials after he was found to have helped his girlfriend, Sam, fill up cracks in her wall, the Mirror reports.

    Officials went through Rolfe’s camera, where they found pictures of him working on the walls. The pictures were used to prove that Rolfe, who was in Canada on a tourist visa, was working illegally.

    “It is just ridiculous, I was helping Sam tidy up her flat before she sold it so we could get a place together,” he told the news outlet.

    “I was treated like a criminal and told I have eight days to get out of the country.”

    Rolfe and his girlfriend hoped to open a dog rescue centre in Edmonton, Alta., but he says that this misstep “has wrecked [their] plans.”

    He applied for a resident’s permit and as a result, Rolfe had to leave Canada to be processed going back through immigration control.

    Vans, a well known American skateboard apparel company, appears to be in hot water over an offensive t-shirt it has since removed from its clothing line.

    For their recent spring campaign, Vans released a mens t-shirt that shows a totem pole made entirely out of beer cans.

    However, shortly after the shirt was made available, Canadians took to social media to voice their displeasure with the offensive shirt that blatantly promotes the “drunken Indian” stereotype.

    One concerned individual, Chad Girardin, a Métis man from Vancouver, even went as far as launching a Change.org petition openly calling out the retailer and asking it to pull the “Wizard Totem” shirt from its clothing line.

    “By creating this shirt Vans is stating that Natives culture revolves around alcohol and that all ‘Indians’ are drunks,“ the petition reads. The petition has received more than 17,000 signatures in just three short weeks.

    Concern about this shirt manifested shortly after the final day of the Truth and

    The pristine islands of British Columbia are beautiful and captivating. So imagine the reaction of locals when they saw a large face etched into the side of a cliff.

    That’s what happened when a mysterious hidden face was re-discovered by a man who has been searching the depths of the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve for the last two years, the Huffington Post reports. 

    The face is said to be located on a cliff on Reeks Island, which is part of the Broken Group Islands in British Columbia.

    Hank Gus, of the Tseshaht First Nation, an aboriginal group in the area, first heard about the face in 2008 from a kayaking tourist.

    The kayaker took a few photographs of the unusual sight, but then when she later returned to the area, she was unable to find the exact location. The kayaker proceeded to send the photos to Parks Canada, who contacted the Tseshaht administration office, reports CTV News.

    After hearing about the sighting, Gus spent the next two years trying to track down the exact

    "Pretty sure our cat thinks the crib we put together was for him.”

    This couple expecting their first child may have forgotten to inform the whole family about their happy news.

    When Reddit user Max Brown and his wife built a crib for their baby girl, who is due soon, their cat made himself right at home. Brown caught the little guy in the crib one morning and snapped a picture that has since gone viral. 

    In the picture, their adorable Maine Coon mix cat is seen lying stretched out in the baby’s new crib, thinking it belongs to him. Brown even titled the post: “pretty sure our cat thinks the crib we put together was for him.”

    The three-year-old cat named Finn is quite the stubborn little guy. Since the photo was uploaded online, Finn’s been regularly using the crib, usually in the mornings, as his own bed. 

    “I find him in there every few days and pull him out right away,” Brown wrote on Reddit. “My wife came and got me yesterday and when I saw him I figured I’d get a picture before taking him out.”

    The Internet is certainly glad that Brown had a

  • Teacher charged after lowering student headfirst into trash can was “just joking”

Sheriff's Department via AP)It was “just a joke,” said a special needs teacher accused of lowering an autistic second-grader headfirst into a trash can.

    Mary Katherine Pursley, who is charged with child cruelty, recently faced a tribunal, 11Alive reports. She requested the tribunal so that she could fight for her job.

    The panel is made up of retired educators who will determine whether the district has grounds to fire Pursley for incompetency and insubordination.  

    Pursley, who does not deny that the incident happened, got a chance to explain her side of the story.

    “I had a strong hold of him – he wasn’t flailing around or anything,” she said. “I had a strong hold of him. He was crying. He was screaming already, very loudly.”

    Pursley said that she took action because the student – referred to as “T” – was hitting other students and screaming. The incident occurred at Mt. Bethel Elementary School in Georgia, U.S.

    “She told him that he, if he was continuing to talk trashy – that trash talk, trashy behaviour – [he]

  • Typical flexed burial from Passo Marinaro.Typical flexed burial from Passo Marinaro.

    It appears that we currently have more in common with the ancient Greeks than we originally thought. Surprisingly enough, it involves zombies.

    Archaeologists are claiming to have uncovered new evidence that is suggesting the ancient civilization believed in the undead, whom were capable of rising from their graves at night.

    “The ancient Greeks provide an example of a civilization that wholly embraced the supernatural,” wrote Carrie Sulosky Weaver, an archaeologist at the University of Pittsburgh, in the publication Popular Archaeology.

    According to Discovery News, there has been newly discovered graves at a necropolis of a Greek colony in Sicily. Known as Passo Marinaro, the cemetery is located near the coastal town of Kamarina, in southeastern Sicily, which was inhabited from the 5th through 3rd centuries B.C.

    Archaeologists have already excavated 2,905 bodies at the site – more than half of which contained terracotta vases, figurines and metal coins with the bodies, Discovery News

    Move over, Grumpy Cat. There’s a new adorably dissatisfied kitty winning hearts online. 

    Meet Luhu, the sad celebrity cat that is sure to dominate your Facebook and Twitter feeds. 

    Luhu’s owner, Maggie Liu, has been uploading pictures her cat on her Instagram account, where more than 10,000 followers have been checking in on the cute sad-eyed little feline.

    The tabby cat lives with her two older brothers, Barher and Bardie, in Beijing, China. And although the three cats share the same mother, Luhu is the only one in the family with those big, sad eyes. 

    Even when playing with her toy panda, Luhu looks adorably distraught. Nothing seems to cheer her up.

    Back to the Future fans may get a real kick out of this one.

    Lexus, the motor company most famous for its high-end SUVs, is introducing its latest mode of transportation … the Hoverboard. 

    The latest video in Lexus’ Amazing in Motion series reveals what appears to be a legitimate, rideable hoverboard that can float an inch off the ground. And while it’s not quite what we saw Marty McFly riding in Back to the Future 2, this impressive creation is far more technologically advanced.

    “When technology, design and imagination come together, amazing things can be achieved,” posted Lexus in their promotional video on YouTube.

    On the website, Lexus describes what went into making one of these cool hoverboards, which they’re calling the SLIDE. It uses magnetic levitation to achieve its floating movement. Through liquid nitrogen-cooled superconductors and permanent magnets, the hoverboard is able to support an actual rider. 

    The design of the SLIDE is unique, too. It features the Lexus symbol on
