A video of what is reportedly the Russian plane crash that killed five people in Moscow Saturday, has surfaced on YouTube.
In the 30-second video, captured on a dashboard camera, two cars are hit by debris from the airliner after it slams into a highway. One of the vehicles is struck by what looks like the front landing gear, as the other car careens across the highway and over what appears to be a row of seats.
The deadly crash occurred moments after takeoff with just the crew onboard, killing five and leaving one in critical condition. We have not been able to confirm the authenticity of the video at this time. Watch it, above, and let us know your thoughts in the comments below…

Do you find yourself in a panic every New Year's Eve because everyone's counting down and Billy Crystal has yet to explain all of the reasons why he's madly in love with you?
No? Oh okay -- me neither.

But the final holiday of the year can put a lot of unnecessary pressure on people. We want to end and begin each year with a bang -- this often means the perfect outfit, an amazing soiree and the midnight kiss that will sweep you off your feet.
Instead of starting 2013 in a state of panic, then promising to be better later, enjoy New Year's Eve and stop worrying about a silly superstition. We've come up with a couple solutions to the big smooch at…

Currently, usernames are displayed with full first names and an initial for surnames (e.g., Kenneth R.) on the location-based social network. Starting next year, however, profiles will display both full first and last names.
"We get emails every day saying that it's now confusing. So, with this change, full names are going to be public," the email said, adding that users can alter their full names under the "settings" tab.
What's more, companies will now be able to view a more detailed overview of visitors that have checked in throughout the…

But 2012 also marks aggressive moves to expand and monetize -- some might say at the expense of user experience and community. At best, Team Facebook is making tough choices in a delicate balancing act. At worst, they are tone deaf to conscientious users.
While we're a far cry from mass exodus, there are only so many missteps to take before someone eats Facebook's lunch.
Here's what went wrong in 2012.

As if the chain and two-tire design of a traditional bicycle couldn't become more basic, a Kickstarter project is taking minimalist bicycle design to a new level of minimal.
Bicymple is like any ordinary bike: it has two wheels, handlebars and pedals. But what it doesn't have is a chain. Instead of the drive chain running from a sprocket in the rear to the crankset the pedals are directly mounted to the rear axle.
This allows the wheels to be closer and another modification lets the rear wheel move independently. This severely decreases the turn radius compared to a standard bike.
The campaign has raised $16,6…

1. Beer Bottles
Because what else were you going to do with all of those empty bottles at the end of the party?
Sing the traditional folk classic and holiday staple from the rooftops or in front of the neighbor's house. Or keep to yourself, and record a video in your room -- like many of the videos we've found above. From a beer bottle rendition to a special meow-ledy as a bonus.
Watch the videos above to see different takes on the classic New Year's song and send us your favorite versions in the comments below. We challenge the really brave to create their own cover.
