Parents are not out to get their children hurt when they grab for the video camera; things just happen, and that's what makes the pratfalls and comedy of errors so amusing. The child would have hit his head or run into the wall regardless of whether there was a video camera running. I feel censorship is being proposed when Rosenberg suggests that the show no longer accept videos containing children. Please, can we enjoy this little show without feeling guilty or taking it too seriously?

Getting holiday packages swiped from outside your door is an unfortunate risk of online shopping. Unless you're Al Alverson, a Texas homeowner with a security camera. When he returned home one recent day to discover that the FedEx package he was expecting was missing, he turned to his footage and discovered the culprit. And it wasn't the milkman. “I said, 'Oh my God, it's the UPS guy,'” Alverson told KHOU 11 News . In a video that's now posted on YouTube and circulating around Reddit, the Grinch in a brown uniform drops off a parcel at Alverson's door and then soon returns to nab the FedEx package.

Tom Schaar landed a 1080. That's all that needs to be said -- and pretty much all the 12-year-old from Malibu could say immediately after becoming the first skateboarder ever to complete three full rotations in the air and land with his board still underneath him. "I did a 1080!" an out-of-breath and excited Schaar exclaimed into the camera that captured him completing the stunt on only his fifth attempt. Schaar recently became one of only a handful of skaters to land a 900. He set out to nail the 1080 on the MegaRamp at Woodward West in Tehachapi, which was customized by Schaar's sponsor, Red Bull, to feature a 70-foot roll-in ramp that leads to a 50-gap and then a quarterpipe ramp with a 27-foot wall.

The iPad mini is out, and not more than a handful of hours after its release, a drop test video is already up on YouTube. Square Trade , which offers device warranties, has once again made a drop test comparison. In the latest video, Apple's iPad mini faces off against Google's Nexus 7. For some reason, the third-generation iPad is also included in the test. For the latest test, Square Trade says it built a robot to make sure each test drop is the same. The test starts with a 4-foot corner drop.

Thanks to NASA, you can now stare at the sun for three minutes straight. No, don't run outside and look up. Instead, check out the clip above that condenses three years of sun images into a hypnotic three-minute video that shows our closest star rotating on its axis, radiating energy and light. The images in the video were taken by the Solar Dynamics Observatory, a NASA satellite that launched three years ago in 2010, with the express purpose of helping scientists better understand the sun and how its magnetic fields shift and change.  To that end, the Solar Dynamics Observatory is constantly monitoring the sun, including snapping an image of it every 12 seconds in 10 different wavelengths.

Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa on Saturday dismissed as a "sham" a newly released video in which a Colombian rebel commander discusses contributing money to Correa's 2006 election campaign. The video, whose existence was revealed by the Associated Press on Friday, appears to lend credibility to allegations that the leftist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia contributed to the Correa campaign.

A  UC Irvine  fraternity has volunteered to suspend itself after it was blasted for a member-produced video that featured a student in blackface. Lambda Theta Delta announced Wednesday that it would cancel all major events and stop operating as a UCI-sanctioned organization until fall 2014. "This decision is mainly due to the abhorrent, insensitive and highly offensive 'blackface' video created by our members that has been circulated widely on the Internet," members of the Asian fraternity said in a  statement on their Facebook page . Lambda Theta Delta  came under fire  toward the end of April for the video on its YouTube page that showed four of its members lip-syncing to the Justin Timberlake/ Jay-Z  song "Suit and Tie. " The student playing Jay-Z wore blackface in the video.
