Watch the First Kayaker to Successfully Run This 115-Foot Waterfall

It's pretty epic

It took two years of planning, but Aniol Serraolses of Spain just did what no kayaker has done before—successfully run the 115-foot tall Lillooet River Keyhole Falls in British Columbia.

The Spanish Red Bull athlete spent two months in the area training and visited the falls six times before he decided conditions were right for kayaking. And then he dropped 115-feet down rushing water and survived.

Watch Patrick Stewart Be Every Single Person You Hate on a Plane

He will make you hate him

Patrick Stewart has taken on his most villainous role yet: Every single type of annoying person you have ever interacted with on a plane.

In a sketch on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Stewart plays: the notorious “Chatty Charlie,” who won’t stop spoiler-alerting your trashy novel; the deadly “Stinky Snacker,” who has a penchant for tuna fish sandwiches; the dangerous “Seat Climber,” who will step on your feet; the menacing “Seat Kicker,” who cannot or will not control his legs; and finally the deafening “Landing Clapper,” who needs to have higher expectations of pilots’ capabilities.

The struggle is real.

Watch Chris Hemsworth and Jimmy Fallon Essentially Have a Wet T-Shirt Contest

Hemsworth may have lost, but we all won.

Chris Hemsworth is a good sport. When the Blackhat actor stopped by The Tonight Show, Fallon challenged him to a card game called “Water War” and Hemsworth didn’t even blink when Fallon explained the premise: “We’ll play the card game war, but if you lose the hand, you get a pint of water in the face. The first to throw five glasses of water on their opponent wins, and gets to water cannon the loser.”

Hemsworth gamely went with it, playing cards and throwing water at Fallon’s face. But then Hemsworth’s luck went south (clearly, Loki is to blame) and he lost three hands in row and Fallon dumped an entire pint of water into his lap. At that point, Hemsworth accepted Fallon’s invitation to swap decks of cards. The result? Thor lost the next round, too. That’s when Fallon hosed him down with a water cannon resulting in a wet shirt contest that could double as a Magic Mike III audition tape.

While Hemsworth claims that he won their last game, the truth is that when these two face-off, there are no losers.

Watch 2 Chainz and Nancy Grace Get Into a Heated Debate About Marijuana Legalization

The rapper holds his own even though she yells over him the whole time

Rapper 2 Chainz is a pretty big fan of weed, and he’s pretty open about it. So naturally, TV personality Nancy Grace decided to bring him on her HLN show for a rousing debate about whether or not marijuana should be legalized.

Hint: Nancy Grace thinks it should not. 2 Chainz thinks it should. Oddly enough, this makes for really, really entertaining television. Grace mostly just yells and makes exaggerated facial expressions during her argument, while Mr. Chainz — who, it should be noted, is rocking a really awesome sweater — stays calm and paints a larger picture about how legalization would positively affect all taxpayers.

When Grace continually showed 2 Chainz a video of a small child being forced to smoke weed, the rapper’s response was, essentially, “I’m different.” (And according to him, so is almost everyone else who smokes marijuana.)

2 Chainz seemed to have a good experience overall, though, because he thanked Grace on Twitter and suggested making this a regular thing. Nancy Grace seemed receptive to it:

So, stay tuned everyone, because Nancy Grace vs. 2 Chainz could become a regularly scheduled event.

Conservationists Revolted by Icelandic Brewer’s Whale Testicle Beer

Environmental Groups Challenge Navy's Use Of Sonar In West Coast Training Exercises

They probably aren't the only ones

Environmentalists have urged beer drinkers to resist the temptation to drink a new flavor of beer from Iceland, spiced with hints of smoked whale testicle.

“This is a calculated move,” read a statement from Whale and Dolphin Conservation society, “not only to dishonour a beautiful and endangered creature by using its most intimate of body parts as a marketing tool, but also sends a clear ‘two fingers’ to the conservation community and those who love and respect whales.”

Brewery co-owner Dabjartur Arilíusson told Beverage Daily that the testicles from the fin whale, an endangered species according to the World Wildlife Fund, were legally obtained from local fisheries, which were granted whaling rights this year following a two year moratorium.

Arilíusson also framed the brew as an homage to the country’s culinary past. “We work the testicle by the old traditional way” Arilíusson said, adding that each testicle was smoked with dried sheep manure.

A Dad Sent His Son to Daycare With Drugs Instead of Lunch

Now he's been jailed for four years

A British dad who mistakenly sent his three-year-old son to daycare with a tupperware container of drugs and knives worth $18,000 instead of a packed lunch has received a four-year prison sentence.

Lee Webb, 23, of Folkestone in Kent, meant to drop the toddler off at daycare with food, but instead handed him over with a bag containing a lunchbox full of mephedrone and cocaine along with weighing scales, assorted drugs paraphernalia and two knives.

Upon realizing his blunder, Webb returned to retrieve the bag and container, but staff refused to return it and instead telephoned the police. When officers arrived, they noticed he had scrawled the telephone number of a lawyer on his hand.

Webb pleaded guilty on Jan. 6 to two counts of possession of controlled substances with intent to supply.

Speaking after sentencing, Detective Constable Kay Brown said, “Stupidity does not even come close to describing the actions of this man. The consequences of his irresponsible, not to mention illegal actions, could have been severe. As a father his role is to protect and nurture, however he put his own child at serious risk of harm.”

The Kim Kardashian Game Isn’t Making the Megabucks Everyone Thought

Lynn Hirschberg Celebrates W's It Girls with Piaget and Dom Perignon

That initial projection of $200 million is looking optimistic

Kim Kardashian’s once wildly popular mobile game, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, is not so popular anymore.

The socialite’s app has dropped to the 19th spot in Apple’s App Store and showed a similar plunge in the Android market, Yahoo Finance reports.

Kim Kardashian: Hollywood lets users create their own Kardashian-style star and ascend, after completing various quests, to A-list status. After its release in June 2014, it immediately shot to the top of the charts, following which analysts predicted it would net $200 million.

However, the game only earned $43 million in the third quarter, and although publisher Glu Mobile won’t release fourth quarter earnings until early February, the $200 million mark seems out of reach.

Not that Kardashian minds. She apparently gets 45% of net profits.

Super Chill Dog Takes the Bus to Meet Her Owner at the Dog Park

Owners: who needs 'em?

Sometimes a dog just really wants to go to the dog park — and if that means taking the bus alone, so be it.

Eclipse, a self-sufficient 2-year-old black lab, has taken to riding public transit to the dog park alone when her owner misses the bus. “We get separated. She gets on the bus without me, and I catch up with her at the dog park,” said Eclipse’s owner Jeff Young, speaking to Seattle’s KOMO News. “It’s not hard to get on. She gets on in front of her house and she gets off at the dog park, three or four stops later.” No word on how she pays the fare with her cute little paws.

Since Lassie, Benji and Milo and Otis have helped pave the way for such precocious canine behavior, neither the dog, the owner, the bus driver, nor the other commuters seem to view the pup’s behavior as anything but adorable. “All the bus drivers know her. She sits here just like a person does,” commuter Tiona Rainwater, told KOMO. “She makes everybody happy. How could you not love this thing?” A spokesman for Seattle’s Metro Transit said the agency loves that a dog appreciates public transit.

While Eclipse is apparently capable of riding the streets of Seattle alone, helpful Seattleites frequently stop the dog on her travels. Young told KOMO that he gets a phone call once a week or so from good Samaritans anxious to help reunite a lost dog with its owner: “I have to tell them, ‘no. She’s fine.’ She knows what she’s doing.” Lassie probably never had to put up with that.

Pizza Hut Will Start Serving Gluten-Free Pies

Pizza Hut

Between that and new Sriracha offerings, the chain is doing its best to stay on trend

Correction appended: Jan. 12, 2015, 10:40 p.m. E.T.

Pizza Hut has great news for the gluten intolerant — and “meh” news for people who say they’re gluten intolerant but are really just trying to lose weight.

Starting Jan. 26, the chain will start offering 10-inch gluten-free pizzas in 2,400 of its 6,300 domestic locations. A slice of the gluten-free pizza’s cheese and pepperoni offerings come in at 150 and 170 calories, respectively.

Although Domino’s started offering a gluten-free pizza, it is not recommended for people with Celiac disease because it is prepared in the same kitchen as dough products. Pizza Hut worked with Udi’s and the Gluten Intolerance Group to ensure crusts are gluten-free–separating cheese, marinara sauce, and pepperoni separately from other foods. According to a press release, “Team members preparing the Gluten-free Pizza will wear gloves, bake the fresh-to-order pizza on parchment paper and use a designated gluten-free pizza cutter.”

Still, the chain asks customers to consult doctors before eating the pie, as the kitchens aren’t completely gluten-free.

Between this and its new obsession with Sriracha, Pizza Hut seems very determined to stay on trend.

The original version of this article misstated the number of Pizza Hut locations that will offer gluten-free pies. The chain will offer the pizzas in 2,400 of its 6,300 domestic locations.

The singer generously wrote a check for $1,989 to help the fan pay off her student loan

Just because Swiftmas is over doesn’t mean Taylor Swift is done sending her fans personalized presents.

And one Swiftie may have just gotten the pop star’s most generous gift yet: a $1,989 check to help her pay off her student loans.

Rebekah Bortnicker shared her story on Tumblr on Monday: After uploading a video she created casting Swift’s celeb gal pals in the intro to Friends, the 1989 artist responded with a telltale Emoji.

A FedEx (er, Swift-Ex) package arrived at her door, containing a handwritten letter, Polaroids, assorted gifts and the check.

“I have nothing to say!” a tearful Rebekah cried after opening the box. “Oh my god!”

Later, she was a little more composed – but just as grateful.

“I know I’ve said it so many times already but thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart. Never in a million years did I ever imagine this happening to me,” she wrote on Tumblr. “I am so honored and so thankful to call myself a fan, to have supported you all of these years because you are truly the most amazing, genuine, and selfless person. … I can’t wait to see you on tour and thank you a 1,989 more times.”
