A tenacious little beagle puppy who just wanted a bit of fresh air, stubbornly hung onto the open car window until the last possible second despite the fact that it was slowly moving towards a closed position.
In Tom Scott‘s latest video “The Secret Underground Pipeline Across Britain,” Scott explains the history of the World War II airplane fuel pipeline that runs beneath the country. In some places, like the Gloucestershire site where Scott filmed the video, the pipeline sticks up from the ground, but there is no official publicly available map of the full pipeline.
Chris is an extremely woolly sheep that was recently found and rescued in Canberra, Australia. He had somehow become separated from his herd and was living alone without human contact for several years, resulting in a dangerously overgrown coat.
Workers at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) were concerned about the animal surviving the shearing process due to stress, but with the help of volunteers and veterinarians, Chris has been safely and successfully sheared, setting a new record of 40.45 kg of wool in the process.
The RSPCA is currently accepting donations to help care for Chris and the thousands of other animals in their care, and is also offering Chris plush toys as a reward.

CLS Videos has created “Meet the Hero,” a supercut tribute to some of the most memorable cinematic heroes and heroines. It features the iconic team of Ghostbusters, Star Wars‘ brave Princess Leia, the tough Imperator Furiosa from Mad Max: Fury Road, and more.
Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. Whether animated, superhuman or a real-life inspiration this three-part montage features and celebrates some of the most iconic and unforgettable ones to ever grace the big screen.
Swedish designer Love Hultén has created the Battlecade, a portable face-to-face arcade console for two players inspired by classic board games like Battleship. More photos of the conceptual arcade console are available to view online.
Instead of having a side by side set up, the two opponents sit face to face, each looking at their own 12? LCD screen and controllers, without being able to see the other person’s moves. The Battlecade is handmade from American walnut and features a built-in storage for accessories like power supply and detachable joysticks. When not in use, the console in three sections folds into a convenient carrier.
Love also created a video showcasing how the two player console opens, operates, and folds up:

The creative team at Viking, a UK-based office supply mail order catalog company, have spruced up their office by decorating the walls with pixelated Star Wars murals made from approximately 3,597 Post-It notes. They were inspired by the pixelated superhero murals created by Ben Brucker and his co-workers at eBay Enterprise back in April. The full series of images are available to view on Imgur and the Viking blog.
Viking also created a time-lapse video showing the wall murals from a galaxy far, far away being built:
