The Olde Time Coney Island Strongman Spectacular …
In a display that has not been seen at Coney Island for over 60 years, some of the strongest men in the country gathered on the streets — once known for their outrageous spectacles — to showcase unusual acts and super-human feats. Among the performers were a man who pulled a truck down a street with his teeth and a master escape artist.

The Billboard Music Awards …
Musicians from all over the Billboard charts took over the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, where John Legend and Jordin Sparks performed a Whitney Houston tribute, LMFAO and Adele won big, and Miley Cyrus forgot to wear pants.

Underwater Morning Tea …
The Sydney Aquarium hosted a morning tea to raise money for the Cancer Council. But this wasn’t your typical tea time. Sydney Aquarium divers enjoyed their very own tea party under water, dressed as characters from the Mad Hatter’s tea party.
All the proceeds from the marine-animal-inspired cupcakes that were sold at the event were donated to the Cancer Council, which raises funds for cancer research, prevention and support programs.
