Hunter Has The Sketchiest Bear Encounter You’ve Ever Seen

Holy Toledo. If that was me I would have wet my pants. I mean seriously.. This hunter's composure is undeniable. If a bear is 2 inches from my face, I'm either screaming at it (stupid) or shooting it (sorry). I know bears are curious, but still. You never know. Very lucky day for this hunter! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLP8mpP0knA

Toys ‘R’ Us May Be Making a Comeback, Geoffrey Giraffe More Than Happy to Stop Wrestling

There may be a second act for Toys R Us, the retail wonderland for children that turned out the lights at hundreds of stores for what was thought to be the final time over the summer. After joining the parade of retailers that never recovered from the recession and radical changes in the way Americans shop for toys and everything else, a group of investors is planning a comeback for Geoffrey the giraffe and his crew. The last time we saw Geoffrey the Giraffe he had packed his bags and made a cameo at a wrestling event. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=GNcUxWvogAU The group, made up of secured lenders, said in a bankruptcy court filing Tuesday that it's scrapping an auction for Toys R Us assets despite receiving a number of qualified bids. The investors said they'll work with potential partners to develop new ideas for stores in the U.S. and other countries "that could bring back these iconic brands in a new and re-imagined way." The seeming end of Toys R Us rippled through the toy industry and beyond. When the company closed the doors at some 800 stores, more than 30,000 people lost their jobs. Less than a month later, Mattel said it would cut more than 2,200 jobs partly because of lost sales to Toys R Us. Obligatory... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGFXGwHsD_A

7 Classic Horror Movies to Revisit That Still Scare the Pants Off You

The movie making business has evolved by leaps and bounds and with it, some of the magic is gone. Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) is the way they do most of the production now but back in the 1970’s it was a whole different animal! Real people, real props made for a real creature experience, and there were works of art by legendary directors and actors working with latex and polyurethane. They were adding hair strand by strand, using makeup and paint to turn out some of our favorite classic horror movies Here are seven examples of not only great old school film making but also classic performances by some great actors gifted in the ability to convey suspense and fear.

Fountain of Youth: How Going to Concerts Can Add Years to Your Life

Your favorite band is coming to town and you are stoked! You know every word to every song on every album and you sing them so loudly without a care in the world. That makes you happy, right? Yes, of course it does. Listening to your favorite music, especially live in concert, is good for your well-being. It's better for you than 20 minutes of yoga, or even walking your dog, according to a study conducted by researchers at Goldsmiths, University of London. In fact, it could add years to your life. Researchers gave 60 participants a psychometric test before performing one of three activities: Going to a music concert, taking a yoga class and walking their dog. They found that those who went to the concert had a 21 percent boost in mood, while those who took a yoga class only saw a 10 percent increase. Those who walked their dogs only had a rise of 7 in happiness. "Our research showcases the profound impact gigs have on feelings of health, happiness and well-being – with fortnightly or regular attendance being the key," said Patrick Fagan, an expert in behavioral science and associate lecturer at Goldsmith’s University in London. It seems silly to even have an actual study to find a link between listening to music and happiness. There have been many, including a couple in 2011 that were published in Nature Neuroscience and Psychology Today. The studies found that listening to music increased dopamine levels — a chemical that enhances mood. Need to add years to your life?

The Most Googled Wildlife Photo in New Hampshire Stinks, Literally

No it is not wildlife that we see all the time like the turkey, or one we hear screeching at night like the fisher cat. New Hampshire's most googled wildlife photo according to RealScience.com is on the boring side. It's the stink bug. Meanwhile states like D.C. and Iowa are googling the praying mantis, and Alabama is on the hunt for pictures of a luna moth.

Real Life Nightmare: Hunter Stuck in Mud For 33 Hours in New Hampshire Swamp

An elderly hunter has been rescued after being stuck in the mud for 33 hours in a New Hampshire swamp. The Fish and Game Department says the 79-year-old hunter from Lebanon had not returned home from a waterfowl hunting trip Tuesday evening. Two Vermont game wardens and three New Hampshire conservation officers searched the Connecticut River by boat and a large wooded swamp nearby in Haverhill. They found the man around 4 p.m. Wednesday, submerged up to his neck in the swamp. They were able to get him out of the mud. The man had hypothermia and was exposed to heavy overnight rain. He was taken to the hospital for evaluation. He told officials he went into the swamp Tuesday morning to retrieve a duck he shot and became stuck. Never forget. via GIPHY

Rivalry Update: ‘We Want Boston’ Chant Breaks Out in Yankee Stadium

"We want Boston." 👀 pic.twitter.com/GXbDQ3d9ik — MLB (@MLB) October 4, 2018 Is the Red Sox and Yankees rivalry dead? You tell me after watching all of Yankee stadium chant "We want Boston!" after they smoked the A's 7-2. The Red Sox have not faired well the past few postseasons even after winning the division. I hope they're ready for the Bronx Bombers; I know fans are. Game 1 of the ALDS is Friday night from Fenway; first pitch scheduled for 7:30pm. Let's go sox!
