MyFoxHouston -

There's an elephant so good with a smartphone, you'd think the video was fake. Also, Darth Vader tries to buy illegal weapons. Here's what's clicking on the web...

High food prices in northern Canada
Can you imagine paying $28 for a head of cabbage or $105 for 24 bottles of water? Gristlist.com has the story and the photos of astonishing price tags from a grocery store in northern rural Canada. Converted to U.S. dollars, there's not much of a difference: it's expensive due to the lack of healthy food up there.  Now there's an online movement to correct this.

Darth Vader tries to buy illegal weapons
This short film on YouTube shows fake villains showing up at a real weapons manufacturer to try and buy guns in Europe. It's all on hidden camera, but the pranksters are run off when the factory realizes the "buyer" is a bunch of guys dressed up like Darth Vader and his Storm Troopers. The film asks "We don't sell guns to villains, so why sell to tyrants?" The issue is before U.N. right now, and the filmmakers want to bring it to light.

Elephant plays with Galaxy Note

Let's lighten it up now: how about an elephant playing with a Galaxy Note tablet computer/smartphone? Yes, the elephant loads apps and plays games. It even manages to draw some items on the screen. The people who made the video say it's real, and they even uploaded to the unedited video to prove it. Watch now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbrmae82uy4

Turf blister
Ever hear of a turf or lawn blister? It's where a bunch of water gets trapped below your lawn (broken sprinkler?) and has no way out. The end result plays with your mind as it turns your front yard into a waterbed. Watch now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bl8lcfpdu_a
