He’s won a few Academy awards for his efforts and has been deeply invested in a musical background since about the age of 8 or 9. At this

A Crab vs Eel vs Octopus on Blue Planet II

Blue Planet II doesn’t pull any punches. A crab needing to reach the feeding grounds that are so far away has to contend with an eel and an octopus, both which are known enemies and are more than ready to consume the crab the moment that it slips. This seems like the worst case of Frogger ever found in nature. First the crab has to make its way across the rocks, skipping through the open water as much as possible in an attempt to avoid the eel, and then it has to somehow avoid being snagged by the octopus, which

The Top Five Matt Damon Yelling Scenes in Movies

Matt Damon is kind of what I would call a desperation yeller. He can yell forcefully but it still kind of sounds like he’s pleading his case to someone in an attempt to get them to understand why he’s yelling.
