Dog gatecrashes classical orchestra
A dog has gatecrashed an open-air orchestra concert. During the International Izmir Festival in the Turkish city of Ephesus, the curious pooch was spotted wandering onto the stage and looking around while the band continued to play, unfazed by the addition to their group. Many of the members of the Vienna Chamber Orchestra - who were in the middle of performing Mendelssohn's Italian Symphony No.4 when they were interrupted by the surprise arrival saw the dog but were determined to finish their performance and as they built up to their crescendo the dog settled down next to a violinist. An audience member filmed the dog's adventure on stage and some of the fans could be heard laughing at the unimpressed pup. Just before the end of the performance the dog opened its mouth and yawned, which garnered claps and cheers from the audience. In just a few hours, the clip which was shared on social media by ABC.com received more than 5,000 likes.
Island emerges in Bermuda Triangle
An island has emerged from the sea in the Bermuda Triangle. The mile-long sand bank has appeared in the North Atlantic Ocean over the last couple of months, but people are being told to stay away from the new land because of strong currents in the gap separating the sandbank from the mainland. The island - which can be found just off Cape Point in North Carolina - has been nicknamed Shelly Island by locals due to the large number of shells found upon it. Janice Regan told PilotOnline of the sand bank: "Yeah, isn't it crazy? It was just a little bump in April." Despite rapidly becoming a tourist attraction, people are being told to keep clear of the island as although the distance between the two is just 50 yards, the riptides are said to be incredibly strong. And as Bill Smith, president of the North Carolina Beach Buggy Association admits, there's also a concern surrounding sharks in the waters. He said: "We're worried about shark bites, but we're more worried about drownings." The future of the island is not clear as the sand bank could continue to grow or could vanish.
Study finds people hate seeing holiday pics
People hate seeing holiday pictures on social media, according to a new study. Aviva, who carried out the research, found that 73 percent of people who took part in the research got wound up when they came across photos of their pals enjoying themselves during their time off. The study also found that the most unpopular pose of all holiday pictures is the 'hot dogs or legs?' Adam Beckett, propositions director at Aviva, told the Metro: "A holiday is, for many, a time to switch-off and have a rest but it would seem that taking a break doesn't apply to social media. "Long gone are the days when the first time British holidaymakers would see their snaps was in the chemist after they got home. "Now, we're sharing our holiday memories as soon as they happen, and with a much wider circle of friends and family."
Man gets dumped by girlfriend after rat prank
A man was dumped after playing a prank on his girlfriend. A social media user, named Derek Deso, recorded the moment he threw five rats onto his girlfriend as she slept. And in the clip, which has been obtained by The Daily Star Online, the YouTuber's partner can be seen leaping up screaming before she stormed out of the room. The lover was so mortified by the practical joke she has vowed not to return to her boyfriend's house and has moved back in with her parents until her beau stops with the tricks. She said: "You need to be done with these jokes dude and until then I'm sleeping at my mum's house. "I don't feel comfortable here anymore." But Derek couldn't believe his prank was the reason the couple split up. He replied: "Are we really going to break up over rats?" A woman has been seen balancing on top of an assortment of boxes while riding her motorcycle. Video footage of the woman, who is unnamed and hails from China, has shown her performing the dangerous stunt in which she can be seen balancing on top of an array of boxes with her legs dangling treacherously off the back of her motorcycle. In the clip, the woman is seen driving down what appears to be a fast road as another motorbike rider drives on the lane adjacent to hers, making the contrast in their driving preferences quite scary to watch. The footage was captured in the Changsha, Hunan Province in China earlier this month on June 11 when a passing motorist spotted the bizarre sight and decided to grab his phone to capture it. The video was uploaded on YouTube and other social media sites and has since gone viral.-Bang Showbiz
