Leonard Nimoy, the actor, author and director best known for his portrayal of the ultra-logical character Spock in the TV series Star Trek, has died at the age of 83.

His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, confirmed to the New York Times that her husband died Friday morning at their Los Angeles home of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Nimoy said last year that he had been diagnosed with lung disease and was "doing OK."

Nimoy's poignant last tweet, sent on Feb. 22, reads, "A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory."

"I loved him like a brother," co-star William Shatner said Friday. "We will all miss his humour, his talent, and his capacity to love."

Co-star George Takei shared his condolences on Facebook Friday afternoon.

"Today, the world lost a great man, and I lost a great friend. We return you now to the stars, Leonard ... I shall miss you in so many, many ways," he wrote.

"Leonard Nimoy truly did live long and prosper. To celebrate his life and work, let us share in some of his best moments as the character we all took into our hearts, Mr. Spock."

A Woman Got Famous on YouTube, and Now Her Twin Daughters Are Too

 

A woman named Mindy McKnight runs a YouTube channel called "Cute Girl Hairstyles" that gives step-by-step instructions for crazy hairdos.

 

She's racked up more than three million subscribers over the past six years.  And now her 14-year-old twin DAUGHTERS are YouTube celebrities too.

 

They've been in a lot of their mom's videos.  But they also have a channel of their own called Brooklyn and Bailey, which recently passed the one-million-subscriber mark. 
 

They post one video a week, and mostly do pointless things for kids to watch.  Like their latest video, where they blindfold each other . . . taste stuff . . . and try to guess what it is.

An Octopus Jumps Out of the Water to Eat a Crab

 

Here's something you probably didn't know:  An octopus will sometimes jump OUT of the water to go after food.

 

Someone in Australia was filming a crab walking across a rock recently.  And out of nowhere, an octopus jumped out of a tidal pool and snagged it.

Circle of life.

Check Out a Video That Shows "Why Moms Gets Nothing Done"

 

A woman named Esther Anderson runs a YouTube channel called "Story of This Life" about the challenges of being a parent.  Back in December, she did a video called "Why Co-Sleeping Is No-Sleeping" that got more than 14 million views.

 

 

And now a new one called "Why Moms Get Nothing Done" is making the rounds online.  Basically, she tries to do chores around the house.  But every time she turns her back, her kid makes another mess to clean up.

A Guy Was So Upset With His Haircut He Destroyed the Salon

 

A 47-year-old guy in Connecticut got a haircut he didn't like on Wednesday, then found out it cost $50.  So he started screaming at the staff, kicked a hole in the wall, and started throwing stuff.  They called the cops, and he was arrested for criminal mischief and breach of peace.

JOHN GREEN wrote the novel "The Fault in Our Stars", which inspired the movie that came out last year. And he's also HUGE on YouTube. He and his brother Hank run a YouTube channel called VlogBrothers. Back in 2007, they did something called the "Brotherhood 2.0 Project," where they didn't text each other for a whole year, and only communicated through video blogs. Which is when they started to get a following. And now they post videos about WHATEVER, and 2.5 million people subscribe. Hank was also one of three YouTube celebrities who got to interview President Obama last month.

A guy in Bethesda, Maryland who has WAY too much time on his hands built a motorized TOILET for a parade last summer.  It's basically a toilet on top of a wooden box with wheels on it.

 

And now a video of him using it in front of his hardware store is making the rounds of Facebook . . . because he added a SNOWPLOW.  (Search for "David Goldberg - Heads Up."  Notice the poor schmoe at the end using a shovel.  What a loser!)

A woman named Deva Dalporto lives just south of San Francisco, and runs a YouTube channel called "My Life Suckers", where she posts song parodies that usually have something to do with her kids. I just subscribed to it because it's FULL of really funny stuff!

 

 

And her newest one is all about living in the suburbs.  It's a parody of "Uptown Funk" by Mark Ronson andBruno Mars . . . called "Suburban Funk".
