Stingray photobombs go viral (PHOTOS)

275x250.jpg Everyone loves a good photobomb, especially when the photobomber in question is an animal … which could explain why these Stingray Photobomb photos went viral.

Seen by millions of people, the images show shocked swimmers being mounted by stingray as they enjoy the water and pose for a quick photo.

The images are thought to have been taken in the Cayman Islands Stingray City, a tourist destination where people get to touch and feed stingray amongst coral reefs.

Some online fans of the Stingray Photobombs have described them as "The photobomb to end all photobombs", and we have to agree.

275x250.jpg Can you remember what you were doing on 15th March 2003? Or what the weather was like on 30th May 2007? British student Aurelien can, in fact he can remember EVERYTHING!

The 20-year-old is one of just a handful of people in the world who are baffling scientists with their ability to recall every detail of every day of their lives, a condition known as superior autobiographical memory.

Aurelien - who is the subject of a documentary on Channel 4 - can apparently even recall exactly what he did on every day since the age of four, including details of conversations and what he had for lunch.

In the show Aurelien is put to the test by eight time world memory champion, Dominic O'Brien, and examined by memory expert Professor Giuliana Mazzoni.


When the mother of these quadruplet brothers heard that teachers were having difficulty telling them apart, she shaved numbers out of their hair to help distinguish them.


So now the Chinese brothers are know to their teachers as 1, 2, 3 and 4 … and have the haircuts to prove it.

The barber is said to have printed the numbers onto sheets of paper before cutting them out, sticking them on the kids heads and cutting around them.

The parents behind the odd news don't blame the teachers for struggling to tell the boys apart, the father is said to have once punished number 3 for the bad conduct of number 2 … though he probably used their real names.

275x250.jpg When Randy Tenley decided to dress as Bigfoot and stand by the side of a road in northwestern Montana to provoke sightings of the mythical creature, he probably thought it would be funny.

But what he didn't consider what that his military-style "Ghillie suit" would also camouflage him as he stood in the right-hand lane of a highway.

As a result he was killed when he was knocked over by one car and hit by a second as he lay in the road.

Montana Highway Patrol say his motives of trying to get people to call in a Sasquatch sighting became apparent after they interviewed his friends.

It's not known whether alcohol was a factor … but we could have a guess.
