I generally give up after a half an hour of unsuccessful Rubik's cubing. This young fellow however, is amazing!

A teenager at a competition in Pennsylvania broke a world record on Saturday, by solving a Rubik's Cube in 5.25 seconds. The old record was 5.55 seconds. And the best part of the video is how the other kids at the competition react to it.

They're all VERY into the whole Rubik's Cube scene, so they obviously go nuts. But one girl screams like she just saw a MURDER or something.

Remember the "Charlie Bit Me" video that went viral in 2007? It's the one where a baby latches onto his brother's finger, and then laughs at him when he says it hurt.


Well, Charlie Davies-Carr is nine years old now and lives in England . . . his older brother Harry is 11 . . . and neither of them get why people love it so much.

They just did an interview with the BBC, and said their dad only posted it on YouTube, because the file was too big to email people. And they both think it's weird it's gotten so many hits.

In eight years, it's picked up 815 MILLION views. And if you don't count music videos, it's the most popular viral video ever.

29 of the top 30 things on YouTube are music videos, and the "Charlie Bit Me" video is number 11. "Gangnam Style" is number one with 2.3 BILLION views.

YouTube celebrated its 10th anniversary back in February . . . it was founded on February 14th, 2005. But the first actual video was posted ten years ago TODAY.

It's an 18-second clip of one of the co-founders standing in front of an elephant pen at the San Diego Zoo. And in addition to being the first YouTube video . . . it also might be the most BORING. But if you want to watch it, it's called "Me at the Zoo".



It's accumulated over 19 million hits . . . from people like you who are simply curious to see what the first YouTube video was.

Ten years later, YouTube now has more than a billion users, and 300 hours of footage gets uploaded every MINUTE. "Gangnam Style" is still the most-watched YouTube video of all time, with 2.3 billion hits.

There are 5,000 state fair food vendors who are KICKING themselves right now, for not coming up with this recipe.

A blog called Oh Bite It just unveiled a monstrous, all-American creation: BACON WRAPPED, deep-fried OREOS. Here's how you make them . . .

1. Wrap an Oreo with an entire piece of bacon, covering up as much of the cookie as you can. Hold the bacon in place by putting a toothpick through it, sticking into the cream filling.

2. Fry it in oil.

3. Let it cool off a little bit, but eat it warm.

4. Try not to die from a heart attack.

Lou and I are going to make some of these.....will you be willing to try one?

Catcalling: defined as making a whistle, shout, or comment of a
sexual nature to a woman passing by.

Isn't that just a ridiculously stupid and demeaning thing for a
man to do to a woman in public?
As a husband and father & grandfather - the thought of the special
ladies in my life being subjected to that sort of
knuckle-dragging behavior makes me want to go all
"caveman-warrior-butt-kicker" on someone.


A reporter for Buzz60.com was in New York last week, talking to people about signs someone put up that
said, "No Catcalling Zone." Which most people thought were great. But one guy thought the story was
IN FAVOR of catcalling . . . and actually started doing it to women while he was being interviewed.

An actor named Jamie Costa paid tribute to Robin Williams by posting a video where he does 20 great impressions of him, including "Mrs. Doubtfire", the Genie from "Aladdin", Mork from "Mork & Mindy", and Sean Maguire from "Good Will Hunting".
Watch this - it's amazing how he even looks a bit like Robin.

Pink has never cared what you think. Since she first rose to fame more than a decade ago, she's been one of the more progressive popstars, a sort of feminist punk rock option for anyone coming of age circa Britney Spears. She might have grown up, got married, and had a kid, but she certainly hasn't lost her edge. Over the weekend, after attending a cancer benefit to support a friend, she noticed some social media users criticizing her weight. And, in typically positive Pink fashion, she responded to her body shamers:
