Most Americans think that England is a little funny. They call the bathroom the ‘loo’ and french fries are called ‘chips.’ But it gets a whole lot crazier than that. There’s actually a village called, “Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.” For real. A weatherman on Channel 4 News actually recited the proper pronunciation of the town on a recent weather report.

Last weekend, the United States Navy’s world famous Blue Angels fighter jet demonstration squadron blew the minds of beachgoers in Pensacola, Florida. Literally. The jets flew so low over the beach that vacationers’ beach tents and umbrellas were launched into the air.
Last month, a short video featuring a tortilla on record player apparently playing Mexican music went viral. That got YouTube user Rapture Records thinking, is that even possible?
