This is Something Not Seen Every Day - A Baby Elephant Helping a "Drowning" Man

A recent video on the internet has gone viral, after a baby elephant was caught on camera jumping into the water to save a man that appeared to be "drowning." While the man happened to be swimming, and he was originally terrified to see the large animal rushing towards him, he eventually realized its intentions.

The baby elephant arrived and protected the man from the current, allowing him to hang onto its trunk and leg as he made his way to the bank. Truly there is nothing in this world like the heart of animals. They are sometimes more human than people can ever be.

This Low Cost Version Of Titanic Is Hilarious (Ten GIFs)

That's exactly what the guys over at Studio 188 wondered too. So they made it: a low cost version of Titanic. And it is (sorry James Cameron) way, way better than the original. Mostly because it had us crying tears of laughter for the whole 2:48 of the video. This will be the funniest thing you see all month. Guaranteed.

A Black Blacker Than Black: Vantablack has Been Outdone By MIT Scientists... By Accident

You might think you know black... But you don't know Black. Vantablack took the world by storm when it was shown to be the most light absorbent material ever created. It absorbs 99.96% of light, and was recently used by BMW to advertise a Vantablack covered SUV using nanotechnology to adhere the substance to the car. 

But MIT was not to be outdone, and created the darkest substance ever found, though their feat was unintentional. Now they have put their discovery on display, in one of the most incredible exhibits possible.
