Jerk alligator steals a huge fish off a little boy's lineToday, a little boy named Connor learned the brutal lesson that Mother Nature has no manners. In a clip posted to the Bass Masters And Fish Experts Facebook Page, a thieving alligator had an easy lunch thanks to some humans fishing off a pier. In the clip, a young boy hooks a pretty sizable fish, and as one man encourages the boy to reel in the fish all on his own, another spots an alligator lurking near the pier. The man tries to distract the gator by hitting the side of the pier with his arm, but the reptile was determined to get its eats. "You need to cut your line," one the of the men tells the little boy as the gator swims away with his catch.  Although it's unclear where the incident occurred, many commenters insisted it happened in Florida.  [h/t: UPI] BONUS: Giant nets harvest fog to solve water crisis in Morocco

Democrats pick Perez to lead party against TrumpU.S. Democrats elected former Labor Secretary Tom Perez as chairman on Saturday, choosing a veteran of the Obama administration to lead the daunting task of rebuilding the party and heading the opposition to Republican President Donald Trump. Members of the Democratic National Committee, the administrative and fundraising arm of the party, picked Perez on the second round of voting over U.S. Representative Keith Ellison, a liberal from Minnesota. Following one of the most crowded and competitive party leadership elections in decades, Perez faces a challenge in unifying and rejuvenating a party still reeling from the Nov. 8 loss of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Huawei seeks to exploit Samsung gap with new smartphoneHuawei is introducing a mass-market version of its premium business phone, to take advantage of a gap created by the withdrawal of Samsung's flagship Galaxy Note 7 after a crisis with its batteries catching fire. Huawei has aggressively expanded its mid- to high-end phones and is going head to head in Asia and Europe with Apple and Samsung in the premium phone market. Huawei's new P10 line is expected to be cheaper than the business-oriented Mate 9, with new features including facial detection that can tell whether a user is taking a selfie or a picture with more people and select its camera mode accordingly.

Guy quits his crappy job in the best way possibleSometimes, you need to go out with a bang. Or a flush. Giving two weeks is a pretty standard practice when employees move on from their current job. It allows the company a short amount of time to search for a replacement, and gives the employee an opportunity to leave on good standing. You never know when you may need that reference — or worse, when you may need your old job back. While most people quickly Google "two-week notice letter" and follow a pretty standard form, this guy decided on a different method. SEE ALSO: Lucky woman wins lottery days after quitting her job According to his wife, Redditor Girlofgodsbadday, this dude decided to quit his job by writing his two-week notice on a few sheets of toilet paper.  "I have chosen this type of paper for my 2 week resignation as a symbol of how I feel this company has treated me, and ironically, how it is disposed of is where I feel the company is going," the letter reads. Just in case the message wasn't clear, he drew a toilet next to where he signed his name. While he didn't use the term "ironically" properly, we're going to give him a pass because handing that over to any boss takes some serious guts.

Huawei P10 and P10 Plus: Everything you need to know

This morning's unveiling of the LG G6 was a great way to kick off MWC 2017 if you were looking for excitement, but there is one big problem with LG going first on press day in Barcelona: it's all down hill from here. The LG G6 is a gorgeous new flagship smartphone that will be in a league of its own once it hits store shelves next month, and you can read all about it in our LG G6 hands-on preview. Samsung's Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ weren't ready in time for Mobile World Congress this year, so LG's biggest rival is a no-show as far as smartphones go. In fact, the only company to announce flagship phones that might be able to give the G6 a run for its money was Huawei, which just took the wraps off the brand new P10 and P10 Plus.

The Huawei P9 was once of the hottest flagship Android phones of the year in 2016, but if you're in the United States the odds are quite good that you've never even seen one in person. Let's hope that changes with the next-generation Huawei P10 and Huawei P10 Plus smartphones, because they're beyond impressive.

Huawei's new flagship phones are made entirely of glass and metal. They look like a cross between Apple's iPhone 7 and iPhone 5 — the P10 and P10 Plus designs aren't exactly original, but if there are any phones a vendor should take inspiration from when designing a flagship device, those are two outstanding choices.

The Huawei P10 features a 5.1-inch 1080p display and Huawei's own Kirin 960 processor, which has proven to be quite powerful according to leaked early benchmark tests. The phone includes 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage and microSDXC support, as well as a large 3,200 mAh battery. The handset also sports a Leica-branded dual-lens rear camera setup that marries a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor with a 12-megapixel main sensor. And yes, Huawei has aped the Portrait Mode feature from Apple's iPhone 7 Plus to create a bokeh effect on portraits that's similar to what you would get from a DSLR.

Huawei's larger P10 Plus features many of the same specs as the smaller model, but it includes a 5.5-inch WQHD display, a bigger 3,750 mAh battery, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, and the rear cameras have a wider f/1.8 aperture compared to the f/2.2 aperture on the P10.

The Huawei P10 and P10 Plus will be released in March in several markets including Europe, Malaysia, Mexico, Australia and more, and they'll be available in a number of sleek and unique colors. The P10 will be priced at €649 (about $685) and the larger P10 Plus will cost just €50 more at €699 euros (about $738). Unfortunately, there's no word from Huawei regarding US availability.
