    Not a single dry eye in the Break Office after watching this video. Our thoughts continue to be with the families of Newtown, Connecticut.

    After we crowned Horse Breaks Man of the Year, we realized we needed a Woman of the Year as well. Thats why we asked two of the internets most prolific hula hoopers to send us new videos and have YOU vote on which one is best.Youre going to want to watch these many, many times. Then, vote awesome on the one youd like to see take home the prize of Breaks Woman of the Year!Seriously, just watch these a bunch. They never get old. These women have many talents. Its just neat to watch, you know. I dont mean for dirty reasons. You... you are the one with the dirty mind. I hope you feel good because that was a bad thought.

    It’s absolutely fake though. Watch, next week, we’ll find out it’s an ad for Red Bull or something. I’m going to go ahead and post it now. That was an email exchange between me and Rob (founder of Big-Boys and still homepage editor) as we discussed the golden eagle video last night. I hated that I felt so cynical about a video we all wanted to believe was real, but Id been through this before. Id seen something amazing that was too good to be true and just felt a little off, and I knew it would be revealed to be fake. One of the very first viral videos I could remember having ever seen, a guy getting upset with his computer and smacking the bejeezus out of it with his keyboard, ended up being a bit cut from a commercial:

    I know just how the eagle feels. Every time I pay the claw game, I end up dropping the prize at the last minute, too.

    More info about this video: This clip of an eagle grasping a baby in it's talons made waves Tuesday. The supposed incident took place in a Montreal park and was just lucky enough to be caught on camera. Unfortunately this too good to be true clip actually was too good to be true. Numerous youtube and internet sleuths discredited the eagle snatching as an elaborate CGI hoax. Meaning babies of the world are still safe from eagles.... at least for now.

    We started with 64 videos and you narrowed it down to one: We Stopped Dreaming. Its a beautiful call to action utilizing images of Nasas greatest achievements along with the passion and vigor of Dr. Neil deGrasse Tysons booming voice. Not only does this video asks us important questions about our future, but it puts those questions into context and truly makes us all think.And also, space and NASA are pretty damn awesome.Beating Roman Atwoods Epic Pee Prank was no easy task, though. Break has a history of fantastic prank videos and we believe, and we think you will too, that this is easily one of the best weve ever posted. 2012 was a great year for Roman. His public pranks are more popular than ever (and more clever) and it doesnt look like hell be stopping anytime soon.

    From the highest sky-dive to the fastest running man, a first vote or last mission, joys and tragedies, grumpy cats and flash mobs, from silly to serious; whatever it is that we shared in 2012, here is a compilation.

    The 20-year-old from Rhode Island was just named Miss Universe and we can't wait to see what hot aliens she has to compete with in Miss Galaxy.

    Last night, a room full of women willingly spent an evening in the same building as Donald Trump in an effort to be crowned Miss Universe, a title that brings with it all the prestige and glamour of being mentioned in a blog the next day on Break.com. Miss USA took home the gold (or the Terry’s chocolate egg or whatever they win as a prize these days) but it was Miss Venezuela who stole the show with her well thought out answer during the Q &A section.....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................
