The way this dog sneezes is just ridiculous

| blog, L&B World, Weird | July 31, 2015

Few things in life bring us as much pleasure and animals making funny noises*, but this might be the best yet.

Who would have thought such a tiny dog could make such a loud, prolonged and downright weird noise while sneezing?

The little Pomeranian, called Roux, violently rattles his head from side-to-side as he lets out the thunderous sneeze, before looking at the camera, clearly embarrassed by his outburst.

Surely this will join the likes of the screaming seal or the goat who sounds like a man in the pantheon or weird animal noises?

*(unless you are a certain American dentist, in which case you probably prefer the sound of animals dying…)

Gymnasts set new benchmark for surfers in amazing video

| blog, L&B World, World | July 31, 2015

These two have just set a new benchmark for surfing.

A YouTube video showed the gymnasts carrying out some crazy moves that involved Chuck Inman hoisting up his friend Lauren Oiye.

Somehow they managed to pull off amazing shapes during a tandem surf event while in the waters near Honolulu, Hawaii.

Other surfers will definitely have to step up their game but we’re not sure how they can match this.

Maybe three people can get on to a board at the same time?
