WATCH: Orca Causes Boat Collision

It’s hard to imagine that this orca didn’t know exactly what he was doing when he dragged these two boats together; that was definitely a celebratory jump out of the water at the end!

The YouTube description for this video reads, "On July 29, 2018 in the port of Vancouver Island, Canada, an orca caught the anchor chain of a sailboat and had fun pulling the boat several meters to another boat. After the collision of the two boats, the killer whale left after jumping out of the water. Both sailboats had some minor damage."

The brain of an orca has cortical folding similar to that of humans and other intelligent mammals. They have complex pod structures, a high emotional capability, and a unique dialect. In other words, they're super smart. And if this footage is any indication, they're also the boss. 

Oh, and let’s not forget that dolphins are the other smart mammals of the sea. This clip is hilarious: 

Dolphins come from the Cetacea family, the same family as killer whales, and display the similar levels of intelligence. This dolphin had to have been laughing his tail off. He 100% changes his trajectory in order to knock over this Stand Up Paddle boarder.

One doesn't think of snowcats as getting a whole lot of deep-powder action.  However, there are always exceptions to the rule, as proven by this video.  Avalanches are dangerous, so it's hard to get too stoked about someone getting caught in one, even someone within the relatively safe confines of a snowcat cab.  That being said, this is definitely the most exciting video of a snowcat we've ever seen.   Related: 26 Fatalities Make For Deadly Winter in Europe

Video: These Avalanches in the Swiss Alps are Huge

This video, shot in the alpine near Grimentz, Switzerland, just keeps on giving. A series of blasts each trigger massive avalanches along a ridgeline, until the whole ridge slides in what must be at least a quarter mile-wide avalanche. Spooky stuff. Related: 3-5 Feet or More of Snow Expected in the Sierras There’s something about avalanche videos that captures attention like almost nothing else. They are both short and sweet, and violently terrifying - almost like a minute-long horror
