Your Week in Viral Videos: Pranks, proposals and problems

Posted: Updated:

(RNN) – It's a new year, and we still haven't learned that playing mean pranks on kids and staying outside during severe weather are both bad ideas.

That's probably because this one principle is inescapable: The folly of some is the entertainment of others.

EBAY PRANK … AND SNOT

Several years from now, this young man can look at this video and smile about the lighthearted moment he shared with his family – and hundreds of thousands of strangers.

Congrats, folks. You have introduced to the world a kid who can control neither his emotions nor his sinuses.

WHY CAN'T I SEE?

Steps for protecting yourself when a tornado hits:

1. Go into a basement or storm shelter and stay there until the storm passes.

2. If you don't have a basement, go into the innermost room in your house.

3. If you're out, do exactly what this genius at the :20 mark did. Trust us, you want to see this.

ON-AIR PROPOSAL

After dating for three years, it's about time this guy popped the question.

And like a true boss, he did it on live TV under the guise of a news interview. Way to use your position for good purposes, buddy.

KIDS (AND ADULTS), DRUGS ARE BAD

Just in case you were thinking about experimenting with bath salts (which, by the way, is a really bad idea), look at this video the U.S. Navy made for its soldiers.

We could not have said it more eloquently than the naval doctor interviewed: "Don't jack up your brain."

TWISTER SIGHTING

Getting back to the weather theme, this is an interesting video that has been making the rounds on YouTube.

It is a 30-second time lapse of every severe weather warning issued in 2012. If you live in the Southeast, this is pretty scary.
