GoPro captures the moment an alligator nearly took a man’s head off

How can the “craziest and most eccentric alligator handler in Florida” prove his lunacy? You find a dinosaur and let it eat you. Or at least let the close relative of one take a chomp at your face. The ‘Gator Crusader‘ decided to find out what it’s like to get eaten by an alligator and recorded the experience with a GoPro. His reasoning? “Everybody always wants to know what an alligator’s bite is like.” That sounds like a good enough excuse to make this awesome video: Notice that the alligator doesn’t really hesitate before chomping down, perhaps it doesn’t care…This story continues at The Next Web

It’s Pride month, so the world is a little more colorful thanks to the rainbow flags popping up everywhere. Here’s one place I didn’t expect to see a rainbow though: Google Sheets. In typical Google fashion, the feature is hidden as a bit of an Easter egg. To activate it, simply spell out the word ‘pride’ such that each letter corresponds to one column in the Sheets app. Your spreadsheet will then be rainbow-fied ad infinitum. It’s a nice touch for an important celebration – and hopefully it’ll make your boring work spreadsheet a little more fun too. For more…This story continues at The Next Web
