Google Earth Takes A Photo Of A Giant Spider

Google Earth Takes A Photo Of A Giant Spider

Anyone who's been bored while researching maps has probably fooled around with Google Earth a little. After all, it offers us a view of the entire world and, as we all know, the world always has something strange going on. These oddities are out there just waiting to be discovered and a map of the whole world made from stitched-together satellite images seems like the perfect way to find them.

Indeed, we've talked about exactly what curious Google Earth users have found while combing through the world's surface, but lately, there's been a lot of buzz about a new, bizarre discovery.

At least, that's what it appears to be. Let's just say there's a lot about this picture of a "bus-sized spider" that's shrouded in mystery.

COMMENT and let us know what you think it is.

Last week, a YouTuber named MexicoGeek posted a video of this strange sight.

This was supposedly found on an island off the coast of Mexico.

MexicoGeek called it a giant insect,

yet others counted the legs and said it looked more like a spider or a crab.

In any case, it certainly looks big.

When this was shared on UFO Sightings Daily, the blog's owner figured the creature was big enough to devour an entire person.

There's just one little problem with all this buzz.

Aside from the question of what giant spiders have to do with UFOs and aliens, of course.

Nobody who claimed to see this spider has released any coordinates.

Normally, you would jot down the coordinates shown on Google Earth when you find something like this. 

The fact that nobody did this led many to think that either MexicoGeek or someone before him doctored the video to make it look like a giant spider was appearing on Google Earth.

Even if the video is real, there's likely more going on than meets the eye.

There's a phenomenon called pareidolia in which our brain makes us see familiar patterns where none actually exist. This phenomenon is why we look at this house and see a face with half-open eyes rather than just oddly-covered windows.

So if it's not a spider or crab, what is it?

It's hard to say, but some suggest it could be simple staining or a buildup of algae on one of the rocks.

Another theory states that we could be looking at a cave opening.

Honestly, that's a much cooler idea. Forget a giant spider, how about a whole spider cave?

Personally, if this turns out to be a hoax, I'm going to be pretty disappointed. You can't just get our hopes up about spider caves and take that away.

The World Wants Adorable Asher To Be The New Face Of OshKosh

The World Wants Adorable Asher To Be The New Face Of OshKosh

Everyone knows that OshKosh gives a deal to a lucky little kid to be the face of their baby products. Parents from around the country submit their children's photos for a chance to get a deal with the famous company. 

When one Georgia mother submitted her son Asher's pictures to a modeling agency, the agency rejected him for the most heartbreaking reason. After Asher's mother was left shocked by the response to her child's photos, she took to the internet to tell everyone what had happened. 

The enormous amount of support little Asher received after this message spread has been quite inspiring. 

SHARE this article with your friends on Facebook. Everyone needs to hear Asher's story. 

Meet Asher Carter, quite arguably the cutest kid that has ever existed in the history of kids. 

Asher's mother, 27-year-old Meagan Richter Nash, tried to submit his photos for a deal with OshKosh. She submitted photos that she had taken at a local studio in Buford, Georgia of her adorable son, but unfortunately, her son was deemed ineligible for a deal because a modeling agency wasn't looking for a child with special needs.

Fifteen-month-old Asher Nash has Down syndrome. 

When Meagan heard from the modeling agency that special needs children were not going to be submitted to OshKosh, she was quite shocked. 

After she posted a picture to the Changing The Face of Beauty Facebook page describing what had happened, people took notice. Shortly after, the Facebook page Kids with Down Syndrome also posted the picture. 

At this point, Asher's picture has been shared over 150,000 times! 

Meagan wanted to make it very clear that it wasn't OshKosh that denied her son.

On the Kids with Down Syndrome post, she commented saying, "I just wanted to make sure everyone knew Oshkosh didn't turn him down , a talent agency said they didn't submit him because a specific brand didn't say they needed a kid with special needs."

She explained to CBS News what she really wants at the end of the day.

“I would love for OshKosh to meet my son and see what we see in him,” she said, adding that, "I don’t want them to use him because of this fuss we are making on the Internet; I want them to use him because they value him and see how much he could contribute to their advertisement."

What happened next will bring joy to your heart!

Apparently, OshKosh has responded to the outcry of support for Asher and is planning on meeting with the family one on one. 

As you can see, Asher is totally celebrating this win.

Here's the little guy taking a little break to taste some icing. 

He's a real natural in front of the camera!

Asher doesn't seem to mind the mess one bit. 

Of course there are more! 

Such an expressive little guy, right?

Recently, the Down Syndrome Association of Atlanta put on a buddy walk to show support for Asher. Incredible!

What do you think? Should Asher be the new face of OshKosh B'Gosh?

Angelina Jolie Stopped Her Car For These Two Random Kids

Angelina Jolie Stopped Her Car For These Two Random Kids

Angelina Jolie is a name and face that everybody instantly recognizes. She's someone that everybody wants to talk about from her magazine covers to her movies to her beautiful and wonderful family. She's not only known as a celebrity but also as a humanitarian and activist. Seriously, how does she find time to raise her family, direct and act in movies and also be an Ambassador of the United Nations?! She's superwoman! And she proved it again today by making headlines when she did another act of kindness. She surprised two kids on the street with a very kind gesture. Read on to find out what Angelina did!

It's no wonder people of the internet call Angelina Jolie "Saint Angelina."

She's not just an actor or a celebrity. She takes her fame seriously and decides to use it for good. She's constantly trying to bring awareness to injustices in the world! 

You go, Angie!

She works with the UN and supports at least 29 charities through her foundation, the Jolie-Pitt Foundation. 

And she's outdone herself again! Wait until you find out what she's done this time out of the goodness of her heart!

Tim Alexander was a father trying to teach his twin sons, Allen and Brandon, a lesson in business. 

The twin boys had a massive (8 and a 1/2 feet tall!) teddy bear named Big Bear that they had outgrown. Tim told Allen and Brandon that they had to sell it.

So the boys took to the curb with a for sale sign just waiting for someone to buy the bear. They waited for over an hour without anyone stopping by! 

And then a car pulled over and Angelina Jolie gets out of the car along with their daughter Shiloh (who prefers to be called John). 

At first, the boys didn't recognize Angelina at all. She simply introduced herself as "Angie" and said that they were good at doing their job. 

They were just happy that someone wanted to buy Big Bear! 

They only found out when their dad told them that she was the actress from Kung Fu Panda

They told Angelina that Big Bear cost $50 but they got the surprise of their life when she gave them $50 each!

The kids of the Jolie-Pitt household are going to be happy with the latest addition in their family! SHARE if you love when you find out that your fav celebs are the nicest!

16 Saturday Morning Cartoon Animals IRL

16 Saturday Morning Cartoon Animals IRL

If there's one thing that we all looked forward to as kids, it was the Saturday morning cartoon lineup! Getting up super early on a Saturday seemed like a great idea at the time, even though it's basically a nightmare these days, and we had all the best cartoons growing up. These pics are all about the animal cartoon characters we knew and loved, mostly because they're the cutest! We also threw in a couple from the classic cartoons in the newspaper's funnies sections. You know, the only thing you cared about newspapers for as a kid? 

Let us know what your favorite animal cartoon character was in the comments, and if you can find any pictures, even better! But for now, I think you're really gonna enjoy these classic Saturday morning cartoon animals...

1. Raphael, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Cowabunga! Maybe not as fast as the cartoon, but definitely dressed for the part!

2. Winnie the Pooh

Just takin' it easy and keepin' it smiley...

3. Marmaduke 

Oh, Marmaduke, you're too big for that chair! What a goof.

4. Tom and Jerry

A tomcat and a jerry mouse, it was a match made in cartoon heaven. Perfect.

5. Garfield and Odie

Maybe this cat isn't quite as fat as the cartoon Garfield, but a few more pounds of lasagna and he'll be there in no time!

6. Felix the Cat

I always thought Felix had that old-school cool charm about him. Having him as a pet would be a party every day! 

7. The Pink Panther

I can't think of this cartoon without thinking of that sweet theme song. 

8. Scooby Doo

Zoinks! I'd say this one's, like, pretty bang on, Scoob!

9. Donald Duck

One of the best-dressed animals on this list, this duck is the best cosplayer in the game!

10. Yogi Bear

"Hey there, Ranger! Mind if I come in for a pic-a-nic basket or two???"

11. Rocko's Modern Life

A deep cut from the '90s, I remember being a huge fan of Rocko and his misfortunes as a kid. I never knew that wallabies are so cute IRL!

12. Wile E. Coyote and the Roadrunner  

He's a genius, but a very unfortunate one...

13. Sylvester and Tweety

Sufferin' suckatash! He may not be the same color, but this Sylvester definitely has the same spirit! 

14. Arthur and DW

Did you know these guys are aardvarks? Well probably, but did you know how freaking ugly aardvarks actually are??? 

15. Timon and Pumbaa

Not only famous for the Lion Kingmovies, they did, in fact, have a Saturday morning cartoon show! 

16. But I'll tell ya, it's not always easy to find these animals IRL — and sometimes when you do, it's a little underwhelming...
