Tom’s Treehouse is an impressive three-story treehouse that was completed in 2011 and built for free by the talented and generous friends of couple Tereasa Surratt and David Hernandez. They used their combined skills of carpentry, roofing, and design to create a beautiful and touching tribute to Surratt’s’ father, who passed away shortly after the couple bought the property.

Footlocker just dropped its latest spot “No Rings” poking fun at ringless sports legends Barry Sanders, LaDainian Tomlinson, Chris Webber and Karl Malone, and featuring adidas basketball star, Portland Trail Blazers’ Damian Lillard.

It’s really, really good.

And the award for most insane train accident of the day goes to Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, where a Blue Line train skittered off the tracks and went halfway up the escalator before coming to a stop. The accident, which took place around 3 a.m. this morning, injured 32, but if it happened at another time of the day, it could have been far worse. Holy crap.

Watch What Happens When a Grizzly Bear ‘Eats’ a GoPro Camera

A new video — titled “Grizzly Eats My GoPro” — posted online shows what happens when a Grizzly Bear stumbles upon a camera.

The footage, approaching half-a-million views, was taken by a “family enjoying a day frolicking on the river” and uploaded to GoPro’s official YouTube account.

“Oh yeah, but they’re Alaskan Grizzlies, and the picnic is not what you’d expect,” the video’s description adds.
