Syrian ‘Hero Boy’ Rescuing Girl During Shootout Is Fake

This week old video purportedly featuring a young Syrian boy saving a younger girl in distress during a shootout amid the raging civil war instantly went viral, and stands with over 3.3 million views! Countless copies of the video has spread across the Web with many more views. 

The only problem is, as is the case with so many viral videos these days, the entire clip was a fabrication, created by Norwegian filmmakers using professional actors on the set of The Gladiator.

The way the camera shakes so ‘realistically’ really gives it away. The director said he created the short film to spur conversation about the horrific war that’s been going on in Syria for so long now.

The World’s Fastest Police Cars

Dubai is an oasis of wealth and luxury in one of the world’s poorest regions. To keep up with the rich and famous, Dubai has amassed a ‘super fleet’ of police cars. They own a slew of the world’s fastest cars, including a Nissan GT-R, McLaren, Ferrari, and many more!

So just how fast is the world’s fastest police car? The Bugatti Veyron police cruiser is capable of reaching 260 mph, and can hit 60 mph from a standstill in under three seconds. You can run, but you can’t escape criminals!

Natural Cubes Of Salt From The Dead Sea Will Blow Your Mind

The Dead Sea in Israel is famous as the lowest point on Earth. It is also the saltiest body of water in the world. As a result of the high saline level, animals cannot flourish there, hence the name Dead Sea. The sea is a popular tourist attraction as the salty, minerally water and mud can be used in many skin therapies. Also, the density of the water makes swimmers float! How cool is that?

Israeli YouTuber Jabulani demonstrates another reason why the Dead Sea is so amazing in this video. Somehow, perfect cubes of salt are naturally formed, and can be found on the shore. Crazy.
