"The Batcane" Scientists in Britain have created a cane for the blind that uses high-pitched sounds to sense the location of objects! It was inspired by the navigation system used by bats!

"Buddy," a cat in Toronto, Ont., Canada, saved its owner from a house fire by jumping on the man's chest and meowing loudly!

In Lake Geneva, Wisc., more than 300 children used 1,300ft. of dental floss to floss their teeth at the same time!
