Big week for UFOs, aliens

Shocking video out of Ireland this week shows what many people are calling a UFO sighting. The groups of seemingly flaming balls disappear and reappear several times in the Ireland sky. This video is reportedly from December, but was released in a timely fashion, as the documentary "Sirius" was released this week. It's supposed to reveal a lot of secrets about hidden knowledge of aliens and alternative sources of energy.

Teens snort condoms online

The latest Internet trend among teenagers is called the condom challenge. Nothing more needs to be said.

Jumping into the spotlight

A video going viral this week will have you jumping up and down in excitement. A woman shows off her skills with a jump rope in one of the coolest videos we've seen in a while. She's got some serious talent, and she shows it off all over the world. Try this at home! (But beware: You'll probably fail.)

This wacky world!

Three men from the UAE were reportedly deported form Saudi Arabia for being too handsome. Officials said they were worried women would fall for them too easily.

The Mars Rover proved it has functions beyond its design. It drew what seems to be an inappropriate image on the surface of The Red Planet.

A man was arrested for getting drunk and then firing a gun in public. How could his day get crappier? He pooped his pants during the police questioning.

A Joint Economic Committee hearing on long-term unemployment in the United States was attended by four lawmakers. Most of them didn't even come until minutes into the speech. Sounds like US Congress is really concerned about this issue.

This week's best viral video features a news anchor whose first time doing the news would also be his last.
