Sorry, Mariano Rivera.

You are no longer the king of the save.

The following footage depicts two men gathering at the base of a building in Guangdong Province because a one-year has climbed on to a second-story ledge during a thunderstorm.

Identified as Mr. Li and Mr. Hu, the men actually catch the falling child in their arms and all escape the scary incident unscathed. See for yourself now:

"I didn't think too much at the time. I was just afraid of failing to catch him,” Li told China's CCTV, while Hu added it was “nothing but human instinct” that caused him to come to the rescue.

We all know that you shouldn't text and drive, but most of us still do it anyway ... sometimes. Most of us try to exercise some caution and do so judiciously, though.

These girls are not most people.

While taking a selfie of themselves singing karaoke, the two Iranian citizens promptly WRECKED their car ... then shared it anyway, because OMG! LOL!

No word if Iran has anti-texting and driving laws, though its punishment for singing karaoke or women having any sort of fun could be far worse anyway.

Just kidding. Not really.

In any event, let this be a cautionary tale as you watch them looking away from the road and into the camera, as the driver takes her hands off the wheel.

There's only one way this could've gone, and it's not good. If you don't have the patience to watch a 15 second video, here's the moment of impact in GIF form:

Now this is taking the senior prank to a whole 'nother level.

A more intelligent, creative, and thoughtful level, that is.

Paris Gray - a senior at Mundy's Mill High School in Georgia - posted a yearbook quote this month that might cost her the chance to graduate with her class.

Officials aren't pleased with her knowledge of the periodic table of the elements because she used it for something beyond passing high school chemistry.

Like spelling out an awesomely cryptic message in her high school yearbook. Herewith, we present the quote and its witty translation:

  • Yearbook quote
  • Periodic table pic

Barium Carbon Potassium Thorium Astatine Arsenic Sulfur Uranium Phosphorus translates to "Back That Ass Up." And that list of elements is what Paris Gray submitted as her senior yearbook quote.

Somebody should give this girl extra credit points, right?

Tara, the California cat who became a YouTube sensation after WRECKING a dog who attacked a small boy last week, has become a bona fide celebrity.

The feline hero "tossed out" a ceremonial pitch at the start of her hometown Bakersfield Blaze minor league baseball game on Tuesday night. Sort of.

She was even on SportsCenter. That's when you know you've made it.

Father Roger Triantafilo uploaded a video of a dog dragging his 4-year-old son, Jeremy, from his bicycle when Hero Cat ran to the rescue, saving the day.

Broadsiding the dog and chasing it away, Tara may have saved Jeremy's life; the video has since amassed more than 21 million views on YouTube.

Jeremy, who suffered a bite to his leg before Tara lunged to his aid, actually threw out the first pitch of the game before handing the ball to his beloved cat.

From bling bling to bootylicious, new words make the dictionary every year. (Totally not sure bootylicious is there, BT-dubs, but the alliteration was too good to pass up.)

This year's entrants, not surprisingly, are heavy on the social media terminology thanks to the meteoric rise in platforms like Instagram and Twitter. 

While over 150 new words were added to the 2014 Merriam-Webster collegiate dictionary, the Top 11 words are where it's at. Check them out now:

Selfie
We all know what selfies are. They're the epitome of narcissim and the need for affirmation. But we love them anyway.

Some argue that adding words like "selfie" to the dictionary is a sign that civilization is declining faster than Joan Rivers' most recent facelift.

Others, however, see adding these new, often made-up words as a way of legitimizing and accepting the rapid evolution of language.

It's nice to think of other people before you think of yourself. Some would say that's even a good quality for a person to possess. But sometimes all that others-first goes a little too far.

It might actually ruin your life.

Just ask any celebrity ever who has totally gone off the deep end after realizing that all that time spent doing what other people wanted was a load of crap.

Looking at you, Miley Cyrus.

You don't have to pull a full-Miley to fix this little issue. Here are 11 signs you might be a people pleaser so you can stop doing them and start living for yourself.

You're Too Nice
You spend too much of your time being nice. To the people you like AND to the people you loathe.

We hope you have a box of Kleenex handy, THGers.

In the following video, 50 friends and family members from five states gather for a flash mob, surprising a woman named Amy the day before her 56th birthday.

Tragically, Amy has been diagnosed with inoperable ovarian cancer, but her loved ones wanted to “reminder her how surrounded she is by support,” according to the opening video text, which adds:

"We don't know exactly how much time we have left together. But what we do know is that being in present in the moment is of the utmost importance."

Watch the moving tribute below and then click through a series of other memorable flash mobs:

There are some things that just aren't sexy. 

That's what a group of models learned after they showed up to shoot a sexy commercial and things got awkward. Super awkward.

In a world where bikini bodies and side-boob shots reign, it's refreshing to see women who embrace their bodies in any shape or form. 

Enter Taryn Brumfitt and the Embrace documentary.

After spending time hating her body following the birth of her daughter, Taryn Brumfitt became a bodybuilder. Despite her svelte physique, she still hated her body.

Deciding that she didn't want her daughter to grow up and continue the cycle of self-loathing, Brumfitt set out to change the world, one woman at a time.
