‘Life jacket’ helps disabled goldfish swim again

A goldfish has given the ability to swim again, after his owner made him a life jacket to help him swim again.

Einstein the fish had developed ‘swim bladder disease’ which caused him to go upside down and sink to the bottom of the tank.

His owner, Leighton Leester from Blackpool, was so worried about him that he decided to make a ‘floating frame’ for him out of recycled tubing, which he managed to fit over the fishes body.

He said “He’s always been a fighter so when he sunk to the bottom one day and couldn’t get back up again it was a very sorry sight. It broke my heart to see him so helpless. He looked so depressed.”

But luckily Leester has rearranged the tank so that Einsten can swim freely through the tank like he did before.

Have you looked around and thought, ‘stupid jokes on Twitter are great, but what would really make it peachy is if I could see a rabbit with stuff on it’s head’

If you did think that, funnily enough there is a twitter account. The Twitter account @SOMRofficial, is a account of a person putting random things on a rabbit’s head. Our personal favourite was the Rubix Cube and the Pancake but there have been so many others.

This were some other that made it on our lists.

Reporter covers China quake in wedding dress

A reporter for a local Chinese station interrupted her make up session in preparation for her wedding to cover the earthquake in the city of Ya’an on Saturday, the worst earthquake of it’s kind since the one 2008, killing 11,000.

She immediately started to interview people on the street, despite the fact she was wearing a full wedding dress. This was her report (as seen on Sky News):

“I am standing at the Holiday Plaza. Fifteen minutes ago, a strong quake struck.”

“But there haven’t been casualties in this area where I am standing…our residents in Ya’an have taken effective measures to prevent damages. I hope our city will be safe”


The video of the report went viral, some even calling her ‘the most beautiful bride in the world’.

After the report, which included 10 minute of interviews, she went back to complete the wedding, and then went to work straight afterwards.
