Merry Christmas, bros! For your holiday man knowledge: a supervolcano on the verge of exploding, an unexpected Christmas present, and a  new Robert De Niro and Al Pacino film. Read on!   

 

An Australian woman got an unexpected Christmas present upon seeing a poisonous tiger snake coiled around her Christmas tree like a festive garland. Good thing she didn't panic: she just took a photo, called up a snake catcher, and got rid of her surprise guest in less than 30 minutes. Happy holidays from Down Under!

 

A Russian deep-sea fisherman has been showing off his catch on Instagram, and they're all straight out of our worst nightmares. Ghost sharks with glowing green eyes, sharks with several rows of pointy teeth, creatures that look straight out of Alien vs. Predator…it almost makes us want to stay away from the beach forever.

 

An Italian supervolcano named Campi Flegrei has been showing signs of activity, signalling a tremendous eruption in the near future. If it blows up before the year ends, that'll make 2016 officially one of the craziest years we've ever seen.

 

Whenever we're at the hospital, we always cross our fingers that a lovely lady doctor would be the one to tend to our wounds. And no, it's not because they're a sight for sore eyes: a study has actually proven that patients with female doctors have a lower chance of dying or being readmitted. Perfect example? Dr. Marjan Nassiri, DMD, the stunning dentist that we featured last June!

 

Amazon has completed its first-ever drone delivery in 13 minutes, giving a whole new meaning to the term "express shipping." Awesome!

 

Be your dog's most favorite person ever with the Furbo Dog Camera, a fun contraption that can toss treats even when you're away! It's the best Christmas gift for Bantay.

 

Tiger Woods is giving everyone the gift of his perky nipples with this Twitter post of him dressed up as "Mac Daddy Santa," a holiday tradition his kids apparently love. Um, merry Christmas, Tiger?

 

Up for a challenge? Try to look for the word "dog" in this word search test. Hirap, 'no?

 

We've all had nasty squabbles about Monopoly rules, tackling everything from property ownership limits to losing players throwing the board across the room in disgust. That's why Hasbro has set up a "Monopoly helpline" in the UK and Ireland this holiday season to help resolve the inevitable Monopoly-fueled fights that'll crop up during reunions. Can they help us get both Boardwalk and Park Place, too?

Pewdiepie has reached 50 million YouTube subscribers, and as a reward, YouTube gave him a giant brofist and eight tiny brofists, which he gave to his loyal followers. He's rich, he's got a hot girlfriend, he's making money doing crazy stuff…can we be Pewdiepie when we grow up?

 

If we can't be Pewdiepie, can we be David Beckham instead? The guy raked in a cool £71,000 (around $87189 or P4,355,214) per DAY in 2016 thanks to his company Seven Global LLP. Well-deserved!

 

Top Hollywood director Martin Scorcese has a cool new film coming up: The Irishman, a biographical feature starring Robert De Niro and Al Pacino that will use technology to digitally enhance De Niro to give him his looks circa  The Godfather. Exciting!

A man volunteered to get himself stung by a bullet ant—said to be the most painful-stinging insect n earth—and let's just say we're glad we're not scientists. Aray!

 

Ever wondered what humans will look like a century from now (assuming we'll still be alive by then)? It's safe to say we'll all be looking at our best, with scientific advancements making mankind tougher, better, smarter, and stronger than ever in the coming years. Exciting, but also pretty scary!

 

For the first time in 37 years, a portion of the Sahara desert experienced snow. It stayed for just about a day before melting—long enough to be photographed.
