Seriously, That Worked?

Is it just us, or have girls gotten way too trusting with their cell phones? The folks at Whatever certainly proved that one with this prank showing how to get pretty much any girl's phone number.

Sorry, if a guy wearing sweatpants asks for our cell for "something important", it's not happening.

With the current cold snap in the UK many of us will be seeking shelter from the weather this week, something this rather unfortunate raccoon tried before getting stuck in a tree.

It was a double blow as not only was the raccoon unable to move but its bottom also took the full impact of the snowfall.
We’re not sure if it managed to escape yet but we certainly hope so.
