Japan, a country with one of the most unique cultures in the world, never fails to surprise us with its strange traditions and practices.

Weddings ceremonies in the land of the rising sun are extravagant and expensive. Although many Japanese people still practice formal-style ceremonies that adhere to strict religious rituals, more and more couples opt to have Western-style wedding. Since it is considered less formal, some brides and grooms add a little spice to the ceremony by wearing cosplay costumes or even having it done underwater.

A hotel in Tochigi took unusual Japanese weddings to the next level by inviting an extra special guest: an alpaca.

Brides and grooms who want to tie the knot in hotel Epinard Nasu have the option to have the fluffy beast act as a witness to their weddings.

Alpacas aren’t even considered a good luck charm in Japan.

So where did the management get the strange idea to have a four-legged friend join couples in the altar?

Apparently, there’s a zoo next to the hotel where the management can rent out an alpaca.

This Idiot Decides to Poke a Sleeping Anaconda With a Stick, Quickly Regrets it

Anacondas are amongst the most feared animals. How could someone ever have the courage to do this?

Anacondas are some of the most feared type of snakes. They are literally big, bad and very dangerous. In fact, the movie "Anaconda" is probably one of the most note-worthy flicks of all time. How could one ever forget those chilly and heart-racing chase scenes all throughout the movie, not to mention the iconic wink of one character after the anaconda swallowed and retch him out?

We guess, this guy in the video below was not able to watch the film. The video shows that the person behind the camera fearlessly tapped the nose of the anaconda several times. We do not know how he/ found the hidden anaconda, but one thing is for sure, that anaconda was severely angry for being disturbed in its natural habitat.

Watch what happens after the person rudely poked the mighty snake:



That person is really lucky that nothing serious happened to him. Oh well, maybe just a lifetime fear of snakes. But let this video serve as a reminder for us all that we should never disturb any animals for our own pleasure. We do not know how they think so let's stay safe by merely marveling at their existence without going overboard.

A trip to the grocery store can be quite monotonous and boring as shoppers don’t have anything exciting to look forward to since they pick up the same type of items every shopping trip.

But the shopping experience can also be quite fun especially if you get fee shopping tips from “experts”.

A comedian named Jeff Wysaski thought of pranking grocery store shoppers by leaving hilarious and quite pointless shopping tips to make their trips more interesting. Previously, Wysaski did the same thing in pet shops, liquor store as well as book shops. Now, the funny man behind Obvious Plant trolled shoppers with a series of senseless suggestions such as buying “potato chips your spouse doesn’t like so you don’t have to share” or doing a lightsaber duel using baguettes.

They say possessing a 'bird-brain' means having no intellect or common sense at all. They are shallow, cannot understand simple things and are just plain hard to teach anything. I wonder how birds feel about that because if I were a bird, especially, a crow, I'd be insulted.

This is because we discovered that crows may be the ultimate problem solvers of all time. In this video we found, Dr. Alex Taylor set up a a difficult problem solving task for a crow. This is the final test of the bird after undergoing months of analytical training. Although, the animal was well thought, the researcher still did not expect the bird to fare greatly!

Watch the video here:



Now, do you think crows are better thinkers than most people you know? Ha! It is really amazing to think that such an animal could solve a tricky puzzle without breaking a sweat! Very intelligent! Now, that makes us wonder how intelligent other animals are too...
