A musician named Jon Marco has a new music video. and you have to watch it if you grew up in the '80s, because the entire thing consists of recreated scenes from a bunch of '80s movies. Including "Back to the Future", "E.T.", "Return of the Jedi", "Die Hard", "The Shining", "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom", "Ferris Bueller's Day Off", "Teen Wolf", and "Tron". And he even does the Phoebe Cates red bikini scene from "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" . . . with HIM wearing the bikini.
Here's something you've never seen. Someone posted a video on YouTube of a full-grown lion letting a tiny dog lick its TEETH clean.
It was filmed at a zoo in Wynnewood, Oklahoma. (About 60 miles south of Oklahoma City.) The dog is a 7-year-old Dachshund named Milo, and the lion's name is Bonedigger.
They've apparently been best friends ever since Bonedigger was born five years ago.
When you're a kid, school being cancelled is pretty much the greatest thing you can possibly fathom. Which is why this video is so mean AND so great.
Some bus driver decided to prank a bunch of students by stopping the bus, and announcing that a water main broke at the school, and they'd all get to go home.
Then after they'd sufficiently screamed their faces off and high-fived each other . . . he told them it was an April Fools' Day prank. For some reason, the video just found its way on to YouTube...
Do you ever fantasize about getting your boss fired? Well, "Forbes" magazine talked to five different career coaches, and they all agreed that about 90% of people who TRY it end up failing. And obviously it's risky.
But if you're hoping to be one of the 10% who succeed, they do offer some tips on how to go about it. Here are the four that are most crucial.
1. Become a Valuable Member of the Staff. If you haven't been there long or you're still entry-level, you pretty much have zero chance of getting your boss fired . . . unless of course he sexually harasses you or something.
In reality, you have to have at least SOME clout if you're planning to go over his head and talk to management about how bad he is. Otherwise, they won't listen.
2. Gather Allies. Meaning, find co-workers who feel the same as you do, and see if they'll talk to upper management WITH you. If you approach it as a group, there's a much higher chance you'll succeed, and less of a chance YOU'LL get fired.
3. Keep Your Emotions in Check. If you make it sound like a personal issue, your boss probably won't get canned for it.
But if you can clearly explain why your boss is unprofessional . . . or better yet, why he's costing the company money . . . you might have a case.
4. Be Patient. Even if you make a strong argument for why your boss should be let go, it probably won't happen quickly. If anything, they'll keep an eye on him and see if the points you made were actually valid. Since most companies don't like firing upper-level employees, it can take YEARS. (Forbes)
