What goes up, must come down in this compilation, but sometimes people get hurt in the process

This hilarious AFV compilation features 17 different fails — all of which involve people losing a battle with gravity.

If you’re going to fight a force of nature, sometimes you have to be ready to pay the price. And every one of these people have the scars, bumps and bruises to prove it.

It doesn’t matter if you’re walking a tightrope while playing a guitar, paddle boarding, poorly attempting parkour or just goofing off with a sibling — gravity will always find a way to humiliate you. And, most likely, someone will be there to film it when gravity inevitably wins.

Twinkle Twinkle! This 5-year-old boy genius can explain the life cycle of a star | Anson’s Answers

The stars we see in the sky have likely been there for billions of years and they’ll probably be there for billions of years after us. Have you ever wondered how those tiny pinpricks in the sky got there? Our resident genius, 5-year-old Anson Wong, can explain exactly how they’re formed and how they die. He explained that all stars undergo the same basic set of steps.

Nebula

A nebula is the birthplace of a star, where a cloud of gas and dust float through space. As these star ingredients swirl around, it begins to collapse under its own gravitational attraction. This causes the center to heat up, eventually becoming a star.

Average star

Some nebulae become average stars after the gasses begin collapsing in. Perhaps the most famous average star in the whole galaxy is our very own sun. It’s considered to be a relatively small star. The sun is estimated to be about 4.5 billion years old. As it continues to age, it will continue to get bigger and bigger until it eventually extinguishes. But don’t worry — we still have a few billion years until that happens!

Massive star

Some nebulae become massive stars, not average stars. A massive star burns its fuel much faster than smaller average stars. Massive stars typically only last a few hundred thousand years.

Red Giant

Average stars eventually became red giants. This happens when the fuel inside the star runs out, causing nuclear reactions to start moving outwards, away from the core. As the reactions cool, it forms what looks like a red outer shell, which is where its name comes from.

Red supergiant

Massive stars age to become red supergiants, the largest stars by volume in the universe. Their temperature is much cooler than our sun.

Planetary Nebula

A red giant eventually turns into a planetary nebula, which is a glowing shell of hot gas.

Supernova

Red supergiants become supernovae. A supernova is an explosion of a massive star. The explosion is very bright for a brief time, sometimes as bright as an entire galaxy! But in a matter of days, it fades again.

Neutron star

What’s leftover after a supernova is known as a neutron star. A neutron star is very compact and compress to the point where atoms are smashed. Only neurons with no electric charge are leftover.

Black hole

A black hole is formed after a massive star undergoes a supernova. All the stuff that remains becomes incredibly compact by a very strong gravitational pull. Not even light can escape it, making it impossible to see anything inside a black hole.

Taunting your opponent is never a good idea, and one cocky MMA fighter has the bruise to prove it

It’s never a good idea to waste time taunting or teasing an opponent, and British MMA fighter Joe Harding learned this lesson the hard way in his match with French fighter Johan Segas.

Harding landed a couple of shots and got cocky, he was just starting to dance when Segas kicked him square in the face and won the match by KO.

Almost every sports coach on the planet will tell you to never let your guard down. Especially if your sport of choice involves physical combat.

It’s not the first time this type of thing has happened to an MMA fighter:

The group excavates nests three days after the turtles hatch to determine how many eggs were laid and how many hatchlings emerged. 

Any straggler turtles are safely released into the ocean.

During its latest research, the group found a two-headed loggerhead turtle.

Researchers said the turtle appeared to be healthy and energetic, and was released into the ocean, but not before a member of the group snapped a few photos.

Kate Mansfield, an assistant professor and lab director with the group, said her crew found a two-headed turtle on the same beach a year or two ago. She said the finding is rare, but not unheard of.
