It happened back on April Fool's Day, but this video of a bus driver pranking a bunch of students by stopping the bus has just now gone viral. The driver tells the kids a water main broke at the school . . . and lets them believe school was canceled. The kids all screamed and high-fived each other, then he told them it was an April Fools' prank. Well played driver, well played.
You really get a sense of how scary this twister was when you see it up close like this. Mobile phone footage from a nearby resident captures the tornado as it gathered near the city of Newcastle, Oklahoma, on Monday. The camera operator, filming from a car, waits for the twister to get close before retreating. The storm grew in intensity before it hit the town of Moore.

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield has been commander of the International Space Station for the past five months, but he's also a musician.
You might remember him from earlier this year, when he recorded a duet with Ed Robertson of the Barenaked Ladies. And back in December, he was the guy who released the first original song recorded in space.
Today he's heading back to Earth, but not before he made one more video, and it might be his best. It's a cover of David Bowie's "Space Oddity" . . . with some of the lyrics changed, so at least it's not all about being stranded in space!
And he posted a cool music video for it that he shot entirely on the Space Station.

Have you ever secretly suspected that some of your co-workers are destroying your brain cells? You were right all along! There's now scientific proof that over-talkative co-workers are making you DUMBER. And it happens every single time they talk to you about the weather, your big weekend plans, and what happened on "The Voice".
According to a study out of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, every time your coworkers talk to you and distract you, you immediately become 20% STUPIDER.
Not permanently, dont worry. But as long as you're distracted, you're dumber.
A separate study found the average officer worker only gets 11 minutes of work done between interruptions . . . and it can take almost half an hour to fully focus again after you're interrupted.
There is a good defense for fighting this off, though. The researchers found that if you tell yourself you're DEFINITELY going to be interrupted at any moment, it actually helps you focus and improves your productivity. Good luck with that!
Here's some detailed information about the study. Now get back to work
