These Guys Thought They’d Attracted Some Fish, But They Got A Huge Surprise Instead

A few fishermen were trying to catch snapper about 10 miles off the southern coast of New South Wales, Australia, when they spotted something moving toward them.

At first, they thought they finally had some fish on their lines, but they quickly realized that that these visitors wanted nothing to do with their bait!

Dolphins are such gorgeous, majestic creatures. I bet it’s incredible to see them in their natural habitat, especially when there are so many of them!

How To Magically Uncurl A Pig’s Tail…Get Ready To Laugh Out Loud

What’s cuter about a pig — their little oinks or curlicue tails? (Okay, but really…is that even up for debate?)

Yeah, their tails are pretty much the cutest.

But did you know that you can actually straighten them out? Well, you can. Watch and try not to fall over laughing as this guy demonstrates just how to make their wiggly tails go limp.

Okay, let’s see that again!

I’m not going to lie…I’m probably (definitely) going to try this out the next time I find myself at a farm!

This Girl Just Beat The Living Crap Out Of A Car And Nothing Happened — Here’s Why

Have you ever looked down into the frozen, electronic wasteland of your phone and thought, “Man, I’d love to smash you and all the mean, tiny people who live inside of you off the concrete repeatedly”?

Same. Sadly, since this is 2016 and all, living with the repercussions of that little moment of catharsis isn’t exactly ideal because emails exist and whatever. That’s why I need about 30,000 bottles of a product called Line-X that was originally made for truck beds, but has the potential for greatness.

The company’s cute tagline reads as follows: “When protection matters most, Line-X it.” Want to smash your face off the wall after work? Line-X it! Want to throw your phone into oncoming traffic because everything hurts? Line-X it! See what I mean?

The folks over at Tech Insider kindly went ahead and illustrated that point. Check this out.

I would be remiss if I did not include the best comment in the history of comments:

I think he’s onto something. To learn more about this substance of the gods that’s being wasted on trucks, be sure to check out the company’s website.

Girl Makes A Really Cool And Unique Cover Of A Michael Jackson Song You’ll Love.

Singer and musician Kawehi originally posted this video of her covering Michael Jackson’s ‘The Way You Make Me Feel‘ in 2012, but it went mostly unnoticed up until this week, when it went viral and racked up nearly 2 million views on YouTube.

The reason it went so big so quick is because when it comes to covers not many are as incredible as this… it really blew me away. You see, all of Kawehi’s instruments and backing in this are just her own voice.

With the help of a sampling machine she begins by making a loop recording of the backing track using her own vocals, she then starts singing the song on top of that…you really have to see and hear it for yourself to get how awesome this is.

This girl’s talent is off the charts awesome, the only ones who don’t see to be enjoying it are her dogs, who slept through that whole awesome performance.

Body Marbling Is The Newest Body Art Trend, And You Have To See It In Action

We’ve seen plenty of incredible body art here on ViralNova, but this new trend is in a league of its own.

And if you’re into nail art, you’ve probably seen one iteration of it before. The technique goes by the name of body marbling, and it took the festival scene by storm earlier this year. That being said, you don’t need to love standing in sweaty crowds for days on end to appreciate the artistry that managed to take over festivals around the country over the summer.

References of this technique date back to the first century in the Sichuan region of southwest China. Although methodology has changed since then, three necessary components remain: water, paint, and surfactant.

Surfactant is a substance that lowers the surface tension between liquids. That helps paint float on top of water. The type of paint used varies based on the surface onto which it will be transferred, but for body application, acrylic is the most common.

Black Light Visuals is the company that really brought body marbling to the festival scene, and the trend caught on like wildfire.

Here’s how it works. Anyone looking for some seriously stunning temporary tattoos dips their arms and legs into vats of water and neon paint. As you can see, the resulting effect is incredible.

Each design is totally different, which is good, since festival-goers are all about looking as unique as possible.

The experience of watching people partake in body marbling is hypnotizing.

Don’t believe me? Check these videos out.

I don’t know about you, but I want to dive into a vat of this stuff! It’s so gorgeous.

Watching This Powerful Laser Clean Rust In Seconds Is Absolutely Mesmerizing

There are few tasks more infuriating than trying to remove rust from just about anything. That’s exactly why this laser is pretty much the best tool I’ve ever seen.

This amazing device is called the P-Laser QF-1000. Like its much larger counterparts, the 1,000-watt handheld tool is meant for industrial applications, like preparing metal for robotic welding or removing residue from manufacturing molds. However, it also does an excellent job when it comes to making rust disappear right before your very eyes.

Just watch this mesmerizing video of the laser in action.

I could stare at this all day, honestly.

But if you’re thinking about getting one of these for yourself, know that it’ll cost you a cool $50,000. I’ll pass.

It Took Her 25 Hours To Create Something Completely Awesome With 15,000 Dominoes

Setting up an intricate domino run takes an extremely steady hand and a lot of patience.

And those are things that YouTuber and professional dominoes artist (yes, that’s a thing) Lily Hevesh, also known as Hevesh5, certainly has. She’s known for her extravagant structures and extreme patience, as you’ll see in this video of her building a complex spiral that took a whopping 25 hours to construct. The amazing design contains 15,000 precisely placed dominoes and has multiple segments that collapse in three phases.

Despite the 25 hours of work and 15,000 individual dominoes involved, the enormous structure only takes two minutes to fall.

It’s oddly satisfying to watch each domino topple into the next.

After you’ve achieved your moment of zen, watch the dominoes stand themselves back up in this reverse video!

I’m just blown away by the work she put into this impressive triple spiral.

Start Winning At Life By Mastering These 24 Genius Body Hacks — You Can Thank Us Later

When your body is in pain or really uncomfortable, it feels like there’s nothing you can do to stop it.

At times, even lesser pains can feel like torture when you have to endure them and wait for them to go away. But what if I told you that there actually are things you can do to get rid of body pain and discomfort (and more) in ways that you didn’t expect? Well, get ready, folks, because you’re about to become the masters of your bodies with these easy, awesome body hacks.

1. If you suspect that someone isn’t being honest with you, pay attention to their body language — if they cover their mouth or other vulnerable areas like their throat or head with their hand, have difficulty speaking, bite their lips, or move their head around when asked a question, chances are they’re lying.

2. An easy way to feel happier is to hold a pencil lengthwise between your teeth — holding it uses the muscles that make you smile, and smiling improves your mood.

3. Terrified of needles? Cough while you’re getting a shot — it helps with the pain.

4. Listerine works as an antiseptic, so you can use it to clean your wounds.

5. Video games really aren’t rotting your brain — in fact, they actually improve mental processes like decision-making, memory, multi-tasking, and hand-eye coordination.

6. Bring some cinnamon with you for the next time you feel foggy at work — smelling it will make you more alert and clear-headed.

7. If you ever can’t stop yourself from gagging, squeeze your left thumb inside your fist (unlike the picture below) — it will calm your gag reflex.

8. Water is your friend — it boosts your energy, reduces stress, helps you eat less, and speeds up your metabolism.

9. If you have a teething baby, put a spoon inside the freezer until it chills (don’t let it freeze) and give it to them — it will soothe their pain.

10. Honey does wonders for sore throats — it kills bacteria, soothes your throat, and helps reduce inflammation.

11. If you’re feeling extremely stressed, put your thumb between your lips and blow — it stimulates your vagus nerve, which decreases your heart rate and helps you relax.

12. Not the dreaded brain freeze! If you find your head throbbing from your icy treat, press your tongue into the roof of your mouth — it will clear it up in no time.

13. Have a toothache? Rub some ice on the back of your hand between your thumb and forefinger — this will help reduce the pain.

iStock

14. If you’re at a noisy club and are trying to talk to someone, use your right ear to listen to them — it’s better than your left ear at receiving speech sounds.

iStock

15. If you hyperventilate instead of taking one deep breath before you jump into water, it will help you hold your breath longer.

iStock

16. If you’re having sinus issues, press on the spot between your eyebrows — it will relieve mucus pressure and help you breathe better.

iStock

17. If your arm is asleep and you’re feeling an uncomfortable tingling sensation, rock your head from side to side — it will relieve nerve pressure and wake your arm up quickly.

iStock

18. If you really need to pee and can’t get to a bathroom, think about sex — it will keep your brain preoccupied and it won’t be so painful.

iStock

19. Scratch your ear if your throat is itchy — the stimulated nerves will make your throat muscles spasm and give you relief.

iStock

20. The next time you’re in a lot of pain, don’t hold back from swearing — it will help reduce the pain.

iStock

21. The next time you feel really nauseous, press on the inside of your wrist between the two tendons — it will make you feel better.

iStock

22. If you get bad indigestion during the night, sleep on your left side — it reduces heartburn.

iStock

23. If you have really annoying hiccups, breathe in and out of a paper bag to get rid of them quickly.

iStock

24. To avoid uncomfortable stitches in your side while running, try to inhale and exhale only when your left foot hits the ground — it will help prevent them.

Amazing Rube Goldberg Machine Powered By Light And Magnifying Glasses.

To advertise their new fiber optics Internet connection called hikari (which means light in Japanese), Japanese Internet provider au made this really cool ad featuring a Rube Goldberg machine that is powered by nothing but light and magnifying glasses…well and gravity too, of course.

A Rube Goldberg machine is an over-engineered contraption that is designed to perform a very simple task in a complicated way (usually using some kind of chain reaction). You could say that this epic creation works at the speed of light! Very impressive.

The sound design alone in that video was simply amazing. Put on some good headphones and listen to how wide the soundscape is. As an audiophile I was more impressed by that than the video, and that’s saying something because the video was insanely awesome.
