While visiting South Africa Hillary Rae shot an terrifying GoPro Hero 4 video of a 11.5 foot long great white shark that was trying to bite through the diving cage she was inside of with her screaming friend.
While shark cage diving, our cage was attacked by an 11.5 foot Great White shark. The round buoy attached to the side of the cage was bent in half. Some of the lining of the outside blue barrier bar was bitten through as well. It was quite the up close and personal experience!

In honor of the 4th of July, Sam the Eagle does his best to seriously recite the opening paragraph of the Declaration of Independence before he’s interrupted and forced to perform his recitation with a humming chorus of muppet disrupters.
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has created a rather graphic video by using crash test dummies to show what can happen when fireworks are handled inappropriately and explosions go awry.
Americans have a longstanding tradition of enjoying hot dogs, hamburgers and apple pie at family gatherings to celebrate Independence Day. Some festivities also include fireworks. Unfortunately, what may seem like harmless fun with fireworks, can quickly turn into a tragedy. In 2014, this became a reality for thousands of families. According to our most recent fireworks report, 11 consumers were killed (up from eight in the previous year) and more than 10,000 (down from more than 11,000) were injured by fireworks. …These reports remind us that improper fireworks use can be deadly to the user and also harmful to friends, loved ones and neighbors. Other fireworks incidents have become deadly when banned, professional or homemade devices are involved.
