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
